Korean Church, Townhouses at WFCCA Meeting

A new church, townhouses, a hotel and a car dealership are all on tap for the next meeting of the West Fairfax County Citizens Association (WFCCA) Land-Use Committee. The group will meet Tuesday, Oct. 18, at 7 p.m. in the Sully District Governmental Center, 4900 Stonecroft Blvd. in Chantilly. On the agenda are:

* Victory Nissan: This car dealership plans to construct a new building in the Chantilly Auto Park, off Route 50 and Stonecroft Boulevard in Chantilly. Fairfax County has already approved it, but Victory Nissan has to show the WFCCA its architectural drawings and colors for this building.

* Korean Central Presbyterian Church: The 4,000-member Korean Central Presbyterian Church hopes to replace its current facility in Vienna with a larger one here on 80 acres adjacent to Bull Run Elementary. It would be built on environmentally sensitive land between Route 29 and Compton, Pleasant Valley and Bull Run Post Office roads. Proposed is a 245,000-square-foot building with a sanctuary seating 2,000 people, plus a 500-seat chapel, a 150-child daycare center and a 100-child private school.

* Townhouses: Plans are afoot to build 10 new townhouses on 1.7 acres on ODay Drive, off Stone Road in Centreville. The Courts at Riverwind would be constructed about 1,000 feet from the ODay/Route 29 intersection. It needs the county's approval for a rezoning from one home per acre to eight homes per acre. But Woodgate Manor residents object to that high a density there.

* New Hotel: OTO Development wants to build a hotel off of Penrose Place in Chantilly. It would arise between the Chantilly Crossing Shopping Center and Route 29.

* Office Buildings: Corporate Office Properties Trust (COPT) is reconfiguring its already-approved plans for buildings it will construct in the Westfields Corporate Center. A representative will share the details with WFCCA.

* Drainage Divides: Fairfax County is considering making a change to its Public Facilities Manual regarding drainage divides.

* Zoning Ordinance Amendment: Fairfax County is also considering whether it should remove the public-hearing requirement for certain buildings if the facility's user is going to be a college or other institution of higher learning.
