Historic District, Offices, Hotels To Be Discussed

Centreville's Historic District, a private school and a mixed-use project are on the upcoming agenda of the West Fairfax County Citizens Association Land-Use Committee.

The members will meet Tuesday, Jan. 16, at 7 p.m. in the Sully District Governmental Center, 4900 Stonecroft Blvd. in Chantilly. Cases include:

* Historic District: Fairfax County staff will present its final report on the Centreville Historic Overlay District expansion.

* School: Attorney Lynne Strobel will speak on behalf of Centreville Presbyterian Church, which is seeking a special permit to operate a private, general-education school.

* Mixed-use project: A mixed-use project containing 10 buildings is proposed for 98 acres in the northeast quadrant of Route 28 and Westfields Boulevard. Representatives of Commonwealth Centre Investors (BPG Properties) will explain what's planned — including six office buildings, two hotels and two retail/office buildings. The land is currently vacant and would require a rezoning from industrial to planned-development commercial.

Two tentative agenda items are:

* Bank pad: Attorney David Gill will again discuss the application for a bank pad in the Sully Station Shopping Center. Approval would pave the way for construction of a drive-in bank toward the front of the former Frank's Nursery (now Ace Hardware) outdoor shopping-area.

* New Mount Zoar Baptist Church: This 200-member church wants to move from Fairfax to Centreville and has applied to build a new, 16,265-square-foot place of worship on Ordway Road. It bought nearly 6 acres there and envisions a church with 450 seats and 131 parking spaces. Attorney Steve Fox will speak on New Mount Zoar's behalf.
