13 February 1995 Sully District Land Use and Transportation Committee Report
by Jeff Parnes
- Attendance: Jeff Parnes (Chantilly Highlands), Bill Ritchie (NECCA), and Larry Tessier (Franklin Glen).
- Jeff Parnes reported on the Major League Baseball Site Selection Task Force's progress. The task force completed their review of the remaining five sites:
- North of the county government complex south of the Route 50 and I-66 interchange.
- Within the planned redevelopment of the Army Corps of Engineering Proving Grounds in Springfield.
- Two in the Dulles Area, south of the Dulles Toll Road, west of Centreville Road, north of Frying Pan Road and east of Route 28.
- In Tyson’s Corner, at the southeast corner of Route 7, the Dulles Toll Road and north of Tyco and Spring Hill roads.
The task force eliminated, after considerable debate and input from a public forum, the Government Center site and the southern Dulles site. At the public forum there was considerable opposition to the Government Center site but no support. The task force thought that the southern Dulles site was closer to residences and further from the Toll Road than the northern site, and so removed it from further consideration.
If Fairfax County receives a franchise, the county will conduct more detailed engineering, transportation and economic studies to further refine the pros and cons of each site. The task force will then be called back to make a final decision on a site. The task force will also propose zoning and planning amendments for Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors consideration.
- The next meeting of the Land Use and Transportation Committee will convene at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, 6 March 1995, in the conference room of Sully District Supervisor’s Michael Frey’s Centreville office.
