Vienna Annex Long-Term Use Study - Engagement Summary and Next Steps




The Town of Vienna has contracted with Kimmel Bogrette Architecture & Kimley Horn to review the former Faith Baptist Church located at 301 Center Street, South, Vienna, VA (Annex) and identify potential long term uses for the property including robust community engagement. The long-term use study report will be used as a basis for discussion and decision making by legislators and key town staff. Town leadership made this purchase for both identified needs, and to strategically add to town resources for future projects and developments. Leadership and legislators want to determine the best use for this property in the near and not-so-near future.

Staff from the Parks and Recreation Department is managing this project, under the leadership from Town Council and with strong input from and collaboration with community stakeholders. The Town Council has communicated its goal of completing this study in June 2023.
