|Construction has started on a multifamily housing complex in Seven Corners.|
With lots of new development under way or planned in the Annandale/Mason area, lots of people are wondering how that will affect the already overcrowded public schools. We asked Fairfax County Chief Operating Officer Jeffrey Platenberg, who’s in charge of the Department of Facilities and Transportation, to explain how FCPS determines how many new students are likely to live in a new housing development and how that fits in with its enrollment projections. His responses are reported below in a question-and-answer format.
Among the projects under way are a 188-unit apartment complex in Seven Corners between Route 50 and South Street and the addition of 100 units at the Monticello apartments in Falls Church.
