WFCCA Meeting is Dec. 17

Homes, Restaurants, Chesapeake Bay Ordinance on the Agenda

New homes, restaurants and the Chesapeake Bay ordinance are among the items scheduled for next week's meeting of the West Fairfax County Citizens Association (WFCCA) Land-Use Committee.

The members will meet Tuesday, Dec. 17, 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 slated:

* Fairfax County is considering a proposal to amend the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Ordinance. If approved, it would limit development in perennial-stream and Resource-Protection areas.

* The Fairfax County School Board wants permission to establish a transportation facility on a 10.8-acre site across from Westfield High. It would provide parking for 260 cars and 150 school buses. A fueling facility for buses is also part of the project.

* The Chantilly Youth Association (CYA) is asking permission to install lights at three baseball fields which its teams currently use. They're on 10 acres which are part of the 23.6-acre Chantilly Regional Library parcel. Plans include adding a concession stand/storage shed, flagpole and lighted scoreboard, at a later date.

* Marlo Furniture owner and founder Lou Glickfield wants to build a new store in a mixed-use development called Chantilly Crossing, at Routes 28 and 50, near the future National Air and Space Museum Annex. He wants to build it in place of a hotel already approved for that site, but county staff wants construction of a business that's more tourist-friendly and compatible with the museum annex.

* Verizon Wireless is seeking a special-exception permit so it may amend the conditions associated with its previously approved telecommunications tower. The tower is near the Luck Stone Quarry along Route 29 in Centreville, and the changes relate to the size of the antenna and equipment buildings.

* The Trinity Centre, along Route 29 in Centreville, was approved long ago for pad sites for three restaurants. Leases for two of those spots have now been signed or are pending signature. The third spot is being considered for a three-in-one restaurant arrangement, and attorney Keith Martin will present details.

* A rezoning to a higher density is being sought for 11.6 acres on the north side of Mount Olive and Old Mill roads. Proposed are 28 single-family homes with 2.46 houses per acre, plus a soccer/lacrosse field and two practice fields.

* Ivy Development hopes to rezone nearly three acres on the west side of Old Centreville Road, near Centreville and Braddock roads. A higher density is sought to build eight single-family homes with 2.71 houses per acre.
