Varied Topics Slated For WFCCA Meeting

A church, parkland, new homes, a hotel and a gas station are among the many items to be considered next week by the West Fairfax County Citizens Association (WFCCA) Land-Use Committee.

The members will meet Tuesday, May 21, 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 tap:

* A discussion is planned on a proposed, county zoning-ordinance amendment dealing with development. Instead of, or in addition to, proferring services — such as road improvements — in exchange for permission to construct their projects here, developers would be asked to give the county cash.

* The Fairfax County Park Authority will provide information about its plans for the Hunter/Hacor property purchased by Fairfax County to mainly be preserved as parkland. The 838-acre Hunter property is just northwest of Cox Farms, and the Hacor parcel is near Virginia Run.

* Capital Worship Center wants to build a sanctuary, related facilities and a preschool on nearly 10 acres at Ordway and Compton roads and Route 28 in Centreville.

* Landowner Jagdish Berry hopes to have his 2.37 acres rezoned to allow for the construction of five single-family homes on the east side of Route 28, adjacent to Compton Village.

* Starwood Ceruzzi — the developer of a new, mixed-use project called Chantilly Crossing — wants to change its already approved plans and build three hotels, instead of two. A not-yet-built restaurant would be replaced by a hotel. Chantilly Crossing is being constructed along Route 50 and Lee Road in Chantilly and will contain two anchor stores, the hotels, restaurants, a recreational facility and other retail businesses.

* In 1997, an Amoco service station, quick-service food store and car wash were approved for construction in the Westfields area of Chantilly. Now, the developer wants to increase the size of the building and add more pumping stations.

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

* St. Timothy Catholic Church is requesting permission to build a 7,500-square-foot library with four classrooms on the second floor. A new meeting room and garage are also planned.

* Although — at the WFCCA's request — the Mobil service station at Stone Road and Route 29 in Centreville originally proffered not to sell alcoholic beverages in its Circle K convenience store, it is now considering applying for permission to do so.
