10 September 2001 Sully District Land Use and Transportation Committee Report
by Jeff Parnes
  1. Attendance:

    1. Members: Dick Frank (Transportation Advisory Committee), Jim Hart (Virginia Run), Judith Heisinger (Bull Run), Ron Koch (Planning Commission), Mark McConn (Bull Run), Jeff Parnes (Chantilly Highlands), and Glenn Stroup (Franklin Farm)

    2. Guests: Kenneth & Mark Bradford, Jane Kelsey and Lori Greenlief (Jane Kelsey & Associates), Rick Lanham (Chantilly Park/KSI), Keith Martin (WCSEL)

  2. Presentations:

    1. 7:30
      • Proponent: Lori Greenlief, Jane Kelsey
      • Action: Variance application with the Board of Zoning Appeals
      • Location: Property is 12711 Oxon Road, Tax Map 35-4((18))36.

      A property owner who resides on a lot that is part of Oakton Chase desires to subdivide his lot to three 3/4-acre lots. Because of the configuration of his property, and the inability to consolidate this lot with an adjoining lot, the lot in question is slightly narrower than the rules require. The Board of Zoning Appeals will have to decide whether or not to grant the variance. After listening to the presentation and asking several questions, the committee decided that there was no issue that required its input, and declined to either recommend or oppose the variance.

    2. 8:00
      • Proponent: Keith Martin
      • Action: Rezoning
      • Location: Property is Chantilly Park on Centreville Road north of 50

      This property, which is south of Chantilly Green, currently under construction just south of where Lowe Street intersects Centreville Road. This property had been replanned, and the committee had heard the plans and had generally been in agreement with the replanning. The project will result in 206 multi-family units of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units. The residential units will surround a central parking lot (with 60 spaces over code) with the garage entrance in the rear close to the commercial development on Metrotech Drive. They are working with the owners of the commercial development on Metrotech Drive so that their entrance road will intersect with Metrotech Drive just west of the discount baby supply store. The road will start near Centreville Road as four lanes divided, become just four lanes, and then once into the shopping center, have two lanes going south and one north.

      The committee members had two suggestions: First, that some a covered bus shelter be build on Centreville Road for the unit residents, and second, that pedestrian access be provided so that residents will be able to walk to the stores near BlockBusters and CVS, rather than having to have to drive every even that short distance. The proponents indicated that they would favorably respond to our recommendations.

      The committee decided that there was no issue that required its input, and declined to either recommend or oppose the rezoning.

  3. New Business:

    1. Dick Frank indicated that the question of the Walney Road/Rt. 28 intersection would be resolved during Phase II contract negotiations with the private consortium that is improving Route 28 for the state. This will be at least five years away, but all current movements will be preserved. The negotiations will have to include the federal government as RT. 66 access will be involved in the discussions.
    2. He also indicated that the county is trying to accomplish the RT28 Bull Run Post Office Road Intersection improvements as part of the spot fund improvements. There is a cap on these improvements of $300,000 and there is a danger, due to all the turn lane improvements that a stoplight would require, that the costs of the improvement might exceed the threshold.
