  2. Presentations:

    1. 7:30
      • Proponent: Keith Martin presented KSI's plans
      • Action: FAR of .35 with .4 obtainable with transit serving the site
      • Location: Middleton Track south of Frying Pan Road along Route 28

      Keith Martin presented KSI's plans for the Middleton Track south of Frying Pan Road along Route 28. The site is planned for a FAR of .35 with .4 obtainable with transit serving the site. The 66-acre site is almost half in a flood plain, separating the northern developmental site from the rest of the property by an 800 foot wide EQC. The developers propose building a 300-400 foot long bridge with a cost estimate of $2 million and spending an additional $1 million to connect Park Center Drive to Frying Pan Road.

      They propose 3 offices on the west of the proposed north-south connector, each with from 175 to 200 thousand square feet with structured parking (7 stories) with a 200-room hotel (6 stories) of 200 thousand square feet. On the east side of the connector, opposite the offices, they propose a four-story multi-family facility (400 units, 400 thousand square feet) with a central structured parking in the interior of the structure (1.6 parking spaces per unit) and the housing on the exterior of the structure.

      On the north side of the EQC, on property that would be in the Hunter Mill District, they are proposing approximately 10 thousand square feet of retail (restaurants, etc.)

      In total they are proposing 1.2 million square feet of development with 800 thousand in office development. The proposal would require a FAR of .41, above what is currently authorized. They would also have to modify the current plan to permit a residential component east of the north-south road. They propose to brief the Dulles Airport Advisory Committee regarding the proposed residential development. Our committee was favorably disposed to the proposal, and requested that they come back before us when they had worked further with staff in developing the proposed plan amendment's wording.

  3. Old Business:

    1. A proposed residential development north of Fair Oaks Estates, along the south side of West Ox Road (near the water tanks) was discussed. The property is planned for R1-R3 cluster, and original plans showed it connecting to Fair Oaks Estates, but that community did not want to be connected. VDOT and the County Office of Transportation have agreed with the developer's request to have the community be placed on a cul-de-sac rather than be connected. Based on the committee's recommendation, a pedestrian access would be provided through what would have been the through connection. The developer will meet again with the Fair Oaks Estates community.

    2. Glenn Stroup requested information about the proposed $200 speeding fine that local communities could request. He reported that on a street (Nestlewood) in his development, over seven cars were reported in excess of 75mph, and one was caught at that speed at 2 in the afternoon.

  4. New Business:

    Dick Frank requested that committee be prepared to recommend spot improvements at its May meeting.

  5. The next meeting of Sully District Council Land Use and Transportation Committee will take place at 7:30 P.M. on 1 May 2000 in the conference room adjacent to Supervisor Frey's office, 5900 Centreville Road in the Fort Hill Centre Building.

    1. On the agenda for 1 May are the following:

      1. Lynne Strobel regarding a proposed rezoning on Route 29
      2. Cabell Vest of McGuire Woods about the Cherrywood Office
      3. Terry Cooke of AT&T about erecting a monopole on the Chantilly High School campus

    2. Tentatively scheduled for the 5 June meeting:

      Frank McDermontt concerning the development North of Rt 29 and West of the Parkway (RZ 2000-SU-012). Centrx Homes is requesting approval to rezone approximately 71 acres from "R-1 and WS" to "PDH-4 and WS".
