1. Southern States proposed Special Exception and Proffered Condition
amendments to allow a 60-foot propane tank to be installed on their oil
tank farm, which is just west of Route 28 on Penrose Place. Currently
Southern States brings the deliveries individually on single excel trucks,
but with this change a tanker truck could off load the supplies and then
trucks could be sent from this site. The property is zoned I-6, while the
property adjoining it to the southwest is zoned I-5.
After a review of the proposal, the committee had no objections, but did ask them to include the following supplemental items: a buffer along the property lines, and the addition of an existing EQC to their Proffered Condition Amendment.
2. The residents adjoining the parcel along Horse Pen Creek just north of Rachel Carson Middle School are objecting to the proposed townhouses on the site. They would rather the lot remain planned as industrial, since the likelihood of its development is slim if it remains planned as it is. At the public hearing representatives of Mustang Meadow incorrectly represented the position of the Sully Council and the Airport Advisory Board. Some of the neighbors expressed concern that the town houses would harbor voyeurs who would peer at the children in the school playground.
3. The previous situation was an example where the property in question was close to a district boundary, in this case the Hunter Mill District. The committee felt that it would be worthwhile to send a letter to the Supervisors and Planning Commissioners of districts that adjoin the Sully District, namely: Braddock, Hunter Mill, Providence and Springfield, and ask them to invite us to discussions on parcels near the peripheral of Sully. In turn, we would ask for a contact point so we could do likewise for in parcels our district that are near their districts.
4. There is a Planning Commission placard announcing plans to convert a house on Lee's Corner Road opposite Thompson Road into a Montessori school.
5. There is a Planning Commission placard announcing plans to build a mosque on the east side of Walney Road near Westfields.
6. Comments concerning the barring of through trucks from Bull Run Post Office and Compton roads from Route 29 to Route 28 should be sent to the Traffic Engineer, 3975 Fair Ridge Ct., Fairfax, VA 22033. No date has been scheduled for the Richmond hearing.
7. During the design review of the Routes 29 and 28 interchange, comments were made that the plans for the Old Centreville Road, Upper Ridge Drive, and Route 28 intersection needed refinement. Has anybody heard of any further developments?
8. The plan amendment for the Braddock Road redirection was approved. That still does not resolve the bottleneck that exists where Walney and Braddock roads interest Route 28 just north of its intersection with I-66.
