Prince William is unique within the Northern Virginia region, from the Potomac River shoreline to Bull Run Mountain. It’s time to take advantage of our assets.

Join PWCA and Tom Eitler, Senior Vice President of the Urban Land Institute, for a discussion on how new development could redefine Prince William County’s image to attract and retain talent as a means to compete in the Washington DC region, supporting our vision to create healthy sustainable communities.

Understanding the Land Economics of the Rural Area

Prince William County should consider exploring what the current and future demand is for agriculturally-related uses and limited business uses in the rural area. Understanding the socioeconomic trends that are affecting an area can help localities identify the potential for future land uses. Prince William County has 80,000 acres designated for rural uses. Mr. Eitler will discuss how the County may better understand and leverage the opportunities available in the Rural Area.  

Compact Suburban Development 

Prince William development area includes tens of thousands of acres of both vacant land and land that can be revitalized or redeveloped in the Development Area. This land will provide the County with all what it needs to meets its long-term residential and economic development goals

However, recent new residential projects in Prince William are resulting in low-density sprawl and 80s-style suburban development that is detrimental to the County’s ability to attract and retain talent. The millennial and Z generations are not interested in locating in humdrum suburban areas and Prince William runs the risk that these important cohorts will not be attracted to the county.
