Joint Sully Land Use and Transportation Committee topics
- In light of an 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.
- All times estimates are provided as a courtesy, presentations will start after the completion of the proceeding presentation, however long it takes. Recommend that presenters be ready at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled time.
- Prospective presenters are requested to register on the Land Use and Transportation Committee Presentation Registration Form as a condition of their presentation.

7:45 — Zoning Ordinance Modernization Project Consolidated Draft

- Carol Hawn, a member of the Dulles Suburban Center Advisory Group, provided these comments:
- In anticipation of the above referenced presentation this evening, I am sending the meeting summary from November, 29, 2017 when the comprehensive plan amendment for this Land Unit was presented to the Dulles Suburban Center Advisory Group, and the document sharing the staff concerns for the plan change. These are important, I believe, because the Advisory Group ended up voting, on December 11, 2017, to retain what was then the current plan. That is what was in the staff report. However, the Sully Supervisor says that because there was only a one vote difference to retain the plan, it is okay that she went ahead and put forward changed plan language. To me, a vote is a vote; if we were to ask the late Jim Scott, who served as both Supervisor and as a Delegate, the importance of one vote, he would tell you that was the number by which he won his first race.
- The bigger issue, in my opinion, is that residents were not given the opportunity to testify on this change in the plan prior to it being recommended for approval by the Planning Commission. Once their public hearing was closed, during the 'verbatim', the Sully Planning Commissioner made the recommendation for the amendment, as well as "editorial comments". By then, the public was unable to voice their thoughts. I believe this is one of the greatest abuses of the public trust experienced in my years as a volunteer. Thank you; I believe it is important in this case to hear both sides of the issue.
- Proponent: Carmen Bishop and Casey Judge, Fairfax County Department of planning and Development
li>Proposal: Zoning Ordinance Modernization Project Consolidated Draft
- Location: Countywide
- Exempt: IsNot
- Read Statement: Not Applicable
- Please take a look at Attachment 1, pages 7 – 24, in the introduction to the consolidated draft to see what topics are covered.
- Concerning a R-A Map of Remaining 97 Acres in Fairfax County, Sheila Dunheimer has sent the following to Sara Morgan of the county staff and asked that I include the requested in tonight's agenda:
- Thank you for your presentation to the Urban Ag. Work Group today. As discussed, I believe there remains considerable concerns among the public regarding preservation of the remaining open space in Fairfax County. I would like to do further research on the zMOD proposal to allow single family detached dwellings by right in the R-A Zoning in order to present a summation regarding the specifics of the possible impacts for interested citizens/organizations. Besides the Urban Ag Work Group's concerns, I am a member of the Sully District Citizen Council where this has also been a topic of discussion and concern, and there are many other groups like Sierra GFG that have asked for more information on many of DPD's Agritourism amendment projected impacts. To this end could you please send me the following information:
- A parcel and aerial map of the remaining, extremely valuable, 95 acres that you've identified still zoned R-A in Fairfax County - to include district lines/ parcel ID level information/ RPA and Floodplain, also indicate the amount of tree canopy on this acreage too, since climate change due to loss of tree coverage is a big environmental focus in the County.
- Please highlight the 5 parcels you mentioned that were adjacent to parcels currently showing a single family detached structure (I believe you indicated these parcel situations had single ownership) that would probably represent the highest level of development, therefore as Cory mentioned...those handful of property owners would benefit the most from this amendment's increase in value of those parcels now developable for homes.
- Finally, please indicate exactly who is on record for proposing this change, or requesting/initiating an investigation by DPD to include such a change in the zMOD amendments with any accompanying written justification.
- The following resolutions were sent subsequent to the 20 July Meeting
- Concerning the assisted-Living facility proposed last year for Hunter's Mill Road
Tracy D. Strunk, Director, Zoning Evaluation Division ,Fairfax County Department of Planning & Development reports that:
- The SE for the assisted living/medical care facility has been withdrawn. The layering of dates is just a quirk of the system, which she could go into but doesn't really matter — the important thing being that the case was withdrawn.
- The older SP for the Zoroastrian church, SP 00-H-026, was scheduled to expire on July 1, 2020, and they did NOT request additional time. Therefore, the SP is now also expired and the property in question may only be developed under its by-right designation (R-E) until and unless an entirely new zoning application is submitted.
- Jim Hart reports the following new cases:
- There is a new case accepted http://ldsnet.fairfaxcounty.gov/ldsnet/ZAPSMain.aspx?cde=SE&seq=4279395 asking for an SE for a "medical care facility" off Lee Rd. on 1.85 acres zoned I-3, I-5, also water supply protection overlay district [WS] and airport noise impact overlay district [ANIOD]. Applicant is Recovery Innovations, Inc. Agent is Ross Stevens 703 674 1321. No staff coordinator yet and not scheduled for public hearing yet.
As circumstances permit, next month's meetings will start at 7 PM either virtually or in the Sully District Governmental Center Front Meeting Room, 4900 Stonecroft Boulevard, Chantilly, VA, 20151, unless otherwise indicated.
