Full Slate for Next Meeting of WFCCA

Full Slate for Next Meeting of WFCCA

Parking, residential homes, a bank and a fast-food restaurant will be among the items to be considered next week by the West Fairfax County Citizens Association (WFCCA) Land-Use Committee.

The members will meet Tuesday, April 16, at 7 p.m. in Supervisor Michael R. Frey's (R-Sully) conference room in the Fort Hill Building, 5900 Centreville Road in Centreville. The public is welcome. Here's what's on the agenda:

* Fairfax County is exploring a zoning-ordinance amendment that would limit parking in the front yards of residential property. It's seen as a problem in some neighborhoods where either large, extended families or groups of people move into one house together and turn their front yard into a parking lot for all their vehicles. The Planning Commission will deal with the matter, April 25, and the Board of Supervisors will consider it on June 3.

* Ratcliffe Associates proposes to build 95-100 single-family attached homes and 80-85 detached homes on 26.6 acres within the Ratcliffe subdivision. It's between Route 29 and Centreville Farms, across the highway from the Bent Tree Apartments.

* Chevy Chase hopes to build a bank with drive-through window and two, drive-through ATM bays. It would go on the northwest corner of the Burger King lot at Route 28 and Old Centreville Road in Centreville. The entrance would be on Westview Drive.

* Pulte Home Corp. proposes rezoning 6.1 acres where, for years, The Mulford School has taught preschoolers and given riding lessons. The property is on Old Centreville Road in Centreville and, by summer 2003, Pulte hopes to build 47 single-family, attached townhouses there, at a density of 7.7 homes per acre.

* The Shell station at Route 29 and Union Mill Road hopes to do some renovations. Planned are modifications to the station's canopy and car wash and to the station, itself, plus the addition of a limited food-service establishment.

* Chik-Fil-A proposes to build a fast-food restaurant with drive-through window at 5800 Old Centreville Road, formerly the location of the old Hunter Hardware store, near Route 29. The building would be nearly 4,500 square feet with a maximum of 140 seats. It would be open every day except Sunday, from 6:30 a.m.-10 p.m.

* In unrelated cases along Route 50 in Chantilly, the Jiffy Lube wants to add Sunday hours, and the animal hospital wants to erect a free-standing sign along the highway.

* Trinity Centre's developer, KSI Services Inc., proposes a change for this mixed-use development along I-66 and Routes 28/29 in Centreville. It would like to add two, 10-story office buildings, with structural parking, to frame the site's central lake.
