    1. 7:30
      • Proponent: Jeff Saxe for Sully North Investments
      • Action: SE to allow increase in building height and Rezoning
      • Location: South side of Wall Road 800 feet west of Centreville Road
    2. 8:00
      • Proponent: Keith Martin for Sack, Harris & Martin
      • Action: RZ/FDP 2000-MD-20, from residential vcacant to office, hotel & multifamily
      • Location: Southeast quadrant of interseection of Rt 28 and Frying Pan Road
      This proposal has been seen by this committee twice since 2000 in another guise. The first two times the proposal called for an change to the Comprehensive Plan to allow residential development east of the proposed spine road. The first out-of-turn Plan Amendment was withdrawn after the economic downturn following the attacks of 9-11. It was then included in area plan review conducted in 2004 but was deferred indefinitely to address student generation issues. Both times it has been endorsed by this body. This proposal is essentially the same, but the housing to the east of the spine road is now proposed to be limited to adult age restricted housing in conformity with HUD guidelines. This eliminates any student generation by the residential component and allows the development to go forward, as the residential component is less than 40%, without a plan amendment.

  3. Old Business (8:00):

    1. Sully District Council Development Criteria Checklist
      Jim Neighbors, the Sully Station HOA representative to the Sully District Council, developed this Development Criteria Checklist. It has been subsequently modified and posted for the use of the Land Use and Transportation Committee. We encourage suggestions on how to make it a more useful tool. It is not intended to indicate that the issues listed here are the only items of concern to the SDC, but as an aid to the members of the SDC in evaluating a proposal presented before us. At this meeting suggested changes are welcome.

    2. Fairfax County Program Design and Development Status Report - August 2005 A summary of road and trail/sidewalk improvements of interest to Sully residents.
      • The list is a summary/status of all of the projects that the Fairfax County Department of Public Works (DPWES) oversees/manages. Improvements to Centreville and Stringfellow roads are projects managed by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). Therefore, they are not listed because they do not fall under the purview of DPWES. However, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) is working very closely with VDOT on the Centreville and Stringfellow roads projects. FCDOT provides the Board of Supervisors with quarterly reports on these two projects as they are part of the Board's four-year transportation plan. The latest update the Board received was at the last Board meeting on September 26th. The latest estimated timetable for both projects is as follows:
        • Centreville Road
          • Design - Begin September 2004 - End February 2005
          • Right-of-Way Acquisition - Begin December 2004 - End December 2005
          • Utility Relocation - Begin June 2005 - End May 2006
          • Construction - Begin June 2005 - End February 2007
          Groundbreaking for the Centreville Road project was on June 30, 2005. Since that time, the Route 28 PPTA/LLC group finalized some of their right-of-way acquisition work and now plans to have construction crews out this fall (i.e., in the very near future). The first area to be constructed will be along the southern portion of Centreville Road. Starting the work this fall should not affect the project schedule.

        • Stringfellow Road
          • Design - Begin July 2004 - End June 2007
          • Right-of-Way Acquisition - Begin July 2007 - End June 2009
          • Utility Relocation - Begin June 2009 - End June 2011
          • Construction - Begin July 2011 - End December 2013
          VDOT recently selected a consultant (Rinker Design Associates) for the project. In addition, VDOT recently completed a topographic survey and a utility relocation survey for the project.
          Sully Supervisor Michael Frey is not pleased with the timetable as he believes that when the citizens of the county approve a bond they should expect the project to be completed in a more timely fashion that the above schedule. At this time VDOT is not sure if they will use federal dollars for this project. If federal dollars are used this would require Environmental Impact Statement work which is an additional step and would alter the timetable (i.e., delay the delivery of the project). Fairfax County recently sent a letter to VDOT requesting that this project not be federalized so as to not extend the timetable for the completion of this project.
