        The church seeks to rezone the subject property in accordance with their 15-Year / 4-Phase Master Plan. The proposed expansion is based on the projected church growth over the next 15 to 20 years and the efficient use of this site. Currently, over 40% of the church property is vacant (Parcel 54A). As depicted on the Phasing Plan, the church envisions a systematic development of this site with the initial expansion of the parking area and all relevant site improvements to support the subsequent building and program expansion. Additional improvements will include a fellowship hall, kitchen, classrooms, an administration wing, a music suite, and media center and ultimately a new 950-seat sanctuary. The proposed additions to the existing church structure will be built in harmony with the existing pseudo-Georgian or Colonial architecture.

      • I495/Capital Beltway Hot Lanes Proposal

        • Public Comments Sought on Beltway HOT Lanes Proposal Comment Session is April 29
        • The I-495 Public Private Transportation advisory panel will hear public comments about the private proposal to construct HOT (high occupancy toll) lanes on a 14-mile segment of the Capital Beltway at a public meeting on April 29.
        • The comments will help the panel in its review of the proposal and recommendation to Transportation Secretary Whitt Clement and VDOT Commissioner Philip Shucet. The panel is expected to hold a final meeting and make its recommendation by the end of May.
        • The meeting will be held at the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church. The advisory panel will conduct an open work session beginning at 6 p.m. An overview of the HOT lane proposal will be presented at 7 p.m. and public comments will begin at 7:30 p.m. Citizens and elected officials will have three minutes to speak in the order in which they signed up at the door. Groups are encouraged to designate a spokesperson to speak on their behalf and will have six minutes to provide comments. There is no pre-registration to speak.
        • The construction firm Fluor Daniel submitted the HOT lanes proposal under the Public Private Transportation Act. Flour Daniel proposes to build two HOT lanes in each direction from north of the Springfield Interchange to north of the Dulles Toll Road. According to the proposal, HOT lanes would be free to carpoolers, buses and emergency vehicles; cars carrying only one or two people would pay a variable toll to use the lanes. Large trucks would not be allowed to use HOT lanes.
        • The panel includes representation from the Commonwealth Transportation Board, the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, the Metropolitan Washington Transportation Planning Board, Fairfax County, and the academic community.
        • No improvements can be made to the beltway unless they are part of a federally approved environmental impact study. An independent environmental review of possible improvements to the Capital Beltway is also under way. In 2002, VDOT held public hearings on three alternatives to add HOV lanes and make improvements to each of the 10 interchanges between the Springfield Interchange and the American Legion Bridge. More than 900 citizens attended the hearings and 1,800 comments were received. Based on the large number of comments received regarding the physical impacts of the proposed improvements, VDOT has evaluated modifications to reduce the size of the project, particularly at each of the ten interchanges. In addition, the effectiveness of HOT lanes is being evaluated for each of the alternatives. Results of these additional evaluations will be presented at public workshops scheduled for June 29 and 30.

      • Workshop to Discuss Sully Site Plans

        • The county Park Authority has scheduled a workshop at 7 p.m. May 11 on a proposal to update the master plan for the Sully Historic Site in Chantilly.

The house is furnished with antiques of the Federal period, and outbuildings include a kitchen, smokehouse and stone dairy. Educational programs, craft demonstrations and living history events are offered throughout the year.
        • Park officials want to update the site to attract visitors. The May 11 meeting, at Franklin Middle School, is the first step in the planning process and will be followed by a public hearing on a draft plan.
