Bank, Restaurants, Church at Dec. 16 WFCCA Meeting

A bank relocation, fast-food restaurants and a new church are among the items slated for the Tuesday, Dec. 16, meeting of the West Fairfax County Citizens Association (WFCCA) Land-Use Committee.

It's set for 7 p.m. in the Sully District Governmental Center, 4900 Stonecroft Blvd. in Chantilly, and the public is welcome to attend. Below are the topics on the WFCCA's agenda:

* Cluster subdivisions: At-large Planning Commissioner Laurie Frost Wilson is scheduled to make a presentation on a new county zoning-ordinance amendment concerning residential, cluster subdivisions. As proposed, cluster development would be permitted by right (without the need for special, county approval) in areas designated R-1 through R-4 (one home per acre through four homes per acre).

* Fast-food restaurants: LWL, LLC is applying for a special-exception permit to open four, fast-food restaurants in one building. The site is about 3 acres and is in the Westfields Corporate Center.

* Bank of America: Although Bank of America is currently in Centreville's Newgate Shopping Center, it's requesting a special-exception permit to relocate to a parcel on the north side of Route 29, east of its intersection with Route 28. That spot is zoned for drive-through banks, sit-down restaurants and fast-food restaurants, and the application involves all three uses.

* Continental-Packaging Associates: This case is about a proposed rezoning of an existing building. The current I-3 industrial zoning limits the amount of warehousing that may be done there, but the proposed I-4 industrial zoning would allow for more flexibility in warehouse usage.

*Sant Nirankari Mission: This applicant is seeking a special permit so it may build a place of worship at 4501 Pleasant Valley Road. The sanctuary would have seating for 376 people and would operate from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. The site is nearly 4.1 acres.
