  2. Presentations:

    1. 7:30
      • Proponent: Frank Stearns agent for National Capital Land & Development
      • Action: RZ 2004-SU-015, to rezone 19.72 acres to PDH-5
      • Location: Redevelop the area on Lowe St. that didnt redevelop last time.

        Frank Stearns, supported by Gary Garczynski of National Capital Land, discussed the proposed redevelopment of the remainder of the Ox Hill subdivision. Their proposed PDH-5 neighborhood would permit a density of six Dwelling Units (DU) per acre with the provision of affordable DUs (ADUs). They are proposing a density of 5.5 with 93 single family detached units and 16 attached ADUs, with 414 parking spaces provided.

        Of the 28 remaining homes in Ox Hill, 27 are part of the consolidation. Because of the remaining original owner, the development's streets to that lot will have to be public. A connection to a private street in Chantilly Green will be from a private street in this development. They have agreed to construct a widened Centrville Road on the VDOT right-of-way in front of their property.

        Ryan homes will build small lot single family homes, with five-foot side lots, yeilding houses 10' apart from each other, rather than the six-foot width used in some neighboring developments. Each house will have an 18-foot driveway allowing two cars to park there, as wll as a two-car garage.

        An interior trail system could be connected, if neighboring Armfield Farms and and Chantilly Green permit, to existing trails in those developments creating a much larger system then the current individual segments. The developers are also talking to Armfield Farms to explore the use of their existing storm water mamnagement ponds to allow more usuable open space in this development.

        Comments and questions from the committee:

        • Public streets are better than private streets in a development. There are costs to the development associated with repaving, which may cause future divisions in the homeowners association later on. The developer indicated that the association would be seeded with reserves to partially cover such costs.
        • The homes in Armfield Farms that
