WFCCA Meeting Next Week

WFCCA Meeting Next Week

Bay, Ballfields, Businesses on the Agenda

An amendment to the Chesapeake Bay Ordinance, a furniture store and lighted baseball fields are among the items to be considered next week by the West Fairfax County Citizens Association (WFCCA) Land-Use Committee.

The members will meet Tuesday, Nov. 19, 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 considering a proposal to amend the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Ordinance. If approved, it would limit development in perennial-stream and Resource-Protection areas.

* 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.

* The developer of the Chantilly Crossing Shopping Center, off Route 50 west, is again revising plans for the buildings there. This time, the proposal is to replace a planned hotel with a Marlo furniture store.

* Sequoia Bancshares needs a special-exception permit so it may add a drive-in lane to its existing bank. It's on Willard Road near the Chantilly Post Office.

* A business called P-Q LLC is seeking a rezoning of land on the south side of Route 29 and west of the Pickwick Square Shopping Center. It also hopes to obtain a special-exception permit so it may establish a combination quick lube and carwash on that site.

* Fairfax County Public Schools is asking permission to create a transportation facility across from Westfield High. It would provide parking for school staff and school buses, as well as a fueling facility for the buses.

* Verizon Wireless wants to obtain 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.
