In 1986, the Board of Supervisors established the Commercial Revitalization Program in Fairfax County. Bailey’s Crossroads was one of four areas originally chosen to participate in the program. The Bailey’s Crossroads Revitalization Task Force - a volunteer organization already in existence at that time, worked with local official and staff to improve the appearance, function and viability of the area. Also, Comprehensive Plan amendments were developed with input from this group, as were a number of desired capital improvement projects. Funding for the capital projects was approved in a 1988 Bond Referendum. In 1991, the Task Force became more formalized and incorporated as the Bailey’s Crossroads Revitalization Corporation or BCRC. BCRC incorporated as a 501(c)(3) charitable tax exempt organization to enable it to receive monetary contributions. In 1998, the Board of Supervisors designated five (5) Commercial Revitalization Districts (CRDs), with Bailey’s Crossroads/Seven Corners as one CRD. In 2014 , the BC7RC changed its name to more clearly reflect its mission and scope, and to better identify it as forum on revitalization for residents, businesses and other members of the community in both areas.
