Mr. Hummel and Ms. Yantis discussed plans to develop 66 single-family and eight affordable dwelling units on 23.7 acres formally known as the Herbert Road property. The property in question is located south of Northbourne Drive, west of Stringfellow Road adjoining the northern part of the state's park and ride facility. Current plans call for the 8 ADUs to be configured as duplexes rather than adjoining townhouses. Not all the parcels that the county staff wished to see consolidated could be, with lot five remaining outside the development plans.
The developers are conducting a phase I archeological survey before any development occurs. A private road over a culvert will cross the EQC to provide access to the ADUs; maintenance of this road will be the responsibility of the Homeowner's Association. Plans are for this development to be incorporated into several currently existing communities south of Northbourne Drive, with the present Herbert Road renamed Marshall Crowne Drive and realigned to join Northbourne Drive opposite Melville Lane.
- New Business:
- Dick Frank mentioned that the county's Board of Supervisors is proposing to allocate a half million dollars this year, and one and a half next year, for spot improvements. No funds were allocated for the current fiscal year.
Areas that might be considered for these type of improvements include
- Light at Rt. 29 and Bull Run Post Office Road, with an estimated cost of $125,000, of which the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority is willing to contribute $25,000 in order to improve access to Bull Run Regional Park.
- Elimination of the sharp curve on Poplar Tree Road (Development may eliminate this problem)
- Construction of walk way to the bus stop on West Ox Road (previously submitted and approved)
- Turn lanes from northbound Union Mill Road to eastbound Braddock Road
- Left turn on northbound Centreville Road to Wall Road.
- Jim Hart brought up the Southwestern Youth Association proposal to develop sports fields off Bull Run Post Office Road. Their proposal development may exceed the density allowed by the Occoquan downzoning. For instance, the current plan foresees about 400/500 daily trips to the proposed site, while their proposal may generate as many as 5000 per day.
- The September meeting of Sully District Council Land Use and Transportation Committee will take place at 7:30 P.M. on 30 August 1999 in the conference room adjacent to Supervisor Frey's office, 5900 Centreville Road in the Fort Hill Centre Building. The committee's October meeting is currently scheduled for 4 October 1999.
On the agenda are presentations by the SYA on their proposal to develop sports fields off Bull Run Post Office Road; and by Ms. Yantis regarding two proposals: the first to redevelop property south of Rt. 29 near Forest Hill Drive as a PDH-2 district for 35 single-family homes as part of an age-oriented community, the other by the King of Kings Lutheran Church south of Rt. 50 just east of Greenbriar to construct improvements on its property and add a preschool.
