Membership Presentation Topic: As the Sully District Council membership does not in the summer, our next meeting is 6 September.
Land Use and Transportation Committee:
- In light of the recent amendment to the Code of Virginia, the county has provided us with a statement be to read when our land use committee meets with a prospective applicant for a rezoning or proffer condition amendment (PCA) for new residential development and/or new residential use in areas of the County that are not exempt from Virginia Code Section 15.2-2303.4. It is recommended that if our committee is meeting with more than one applicant to read this statement for each rezoning/PCA.
- 7:00 -- ZOA for Shape Factor in the R-C
- Proponent: Lorrie Kirst, Zoning Administration Division, Department of Planning and Zoning, Fairfax County
- Action: Proposed Zoning Ordinance Amendment Concerning Shape Factor
- Location: R-C Districts
The proposed amendment addresses several items that are set forth in the 2015 Zoning Ordinance Amendment Work Program, including the addition of shape factor in the R-C District, and the consideration of an increase in the maximum allowable building height in the R-C, R-E and R-1 Districts when the impact of the increased height on adjacent properties is mitigated. In addition, the proposed amendment would add language that facilitates the minor adjustment of lot lines between corner lots and the adjacent lots when such lots do not meet the current lot area, lot width and/or shape factor requirements, but met the requirements that were in effect when the lots were created. The need for this language has recently become apparent based on several minor lot line adjustment requests that have recently been submitted.
For more information see the forwarding memo or the staff report.

This vision helps to guide the county's environmental sustainability initiatives and programs. The Board of Supervisors adopted its environmental vision in June 2004; it was last updated in March 2007. The vision is organized into six major core service areas: growth and land use; air quality and transportation; water quality; solid waste; parks/trails/open space; and environmental stewardship.

They have been working with an outside consultant, Gartner, and are prepared to share Gartner's recommendations in each district to update interested citizens. His thought is that our land use committees provide the most logical opportunity and the committees could help advertise to interested citizens. The presentation will be similar to the one provided at the Development Process Committee on May 24. He expects to need 45 -60 minutes to provide good opportunity for questions. He would like to begin the meetings in late July.
He will be meeting with the Planning Commission on July 21st.
