      • Action: Rezoning and development application for an independent living and medical care facilities
      • Location: Centreville Road, to the north of McLearen Road
        At our June meeting we heard, and had no objection to, a presentation to locate both a senior citizen assisted living and nursing facility on Centreville Road north of its intersection with McLearen Rd.
      • The Health Care Advisory Board held a public meeting on September 10 to their review Rezoning/Final Development Plan Application number RZ/FDP 2012-SU-010
        • The proposed site is located on 8.46 acres northwest of the Centreville Road (Rt. 657) and McLearen Road intersection. The applicant is seeking approval to build a residential nursing and independent/assisted living facility: One hundred senior independent living units and about 60 units for assisted living, some of which will be memory care units, will be located in a four-story building measuring 162,498 square feet. The skilled nursing facility will be housed in a separate two-story 83,740 square foot building containing a total of 96 units, or 166 beds.
        • This facility will replace Commonwealth Care Center, located in the City of Fairfax; existing services must be relocated because of a decision made by lnova Health System, the original proprietor, to divest its nursing home business but retain the real property housing those services. To construct the new nursing home, the project proposes to use the 143 licensed beds at Commonwealth Care Center plus 23 beds from the Cameron Glen Care Center located in Reston.
        • HCAB reviews zoning and special exception applications for medical care facilities from a health care rather that land use perspective, using such criteria as community and medical need, access to care, cost, quality and continuity of care. The HCAB will make recommendations regarding the proposal to the Board of Supervisors and the Planning Commission.
      • The proponents are returning to keep the SDC current with their on-going progress.

    3. 9:30
      • Proponent: Jim Hickox.
      • Action: Agricultural and Forestal District - AF 2012-SU-001
      • Location: 15950 Lee Highway, Centreville, VA
        Fairfax County accepted their application for a 21-acre Agricultural and Forestal District, with their Planning Commission public hearing on 17 October and the Board of Supervisors' hearing on 30 October/
        A copy of their application as well as their statement of justification is posted for review.

  5. Old Business

  6. New Business

  7. Items of General Interest:

    • Bi-County Parkway:
      • Delegate Thomas Rust reports that in 2009, he carried a bill which was known as the "Corridor's of Statewide Significance" and became law. It was described by some as the most significant transportation policy legislation in a decade.
      • This bill allowed the Commonwealth Transportation Board to establish transportation corridors in connection with the establishment of the Statewide Transportation Plan. He is happy to report that the Commonwealth Transportation Board has included $5 million for preliminary engineering and design for the Bi-County Parkway in the FY 2013-2018 Six-Year Improvement Program. The Bi-County Parkway is part of the new Northern Virginia North-South Corridor of Statewide Significance. In order for a corridor to be considered the focus of statewide investment, it must meet all four of the following criteria:
        • Must involve multiple modes of travel or must be an extended freight corridor
        • Must connect regions, states, and/or major activity centers
        • Must involve a high volume of travel
        • Must provide a unique statewide function and/or address statewide goals
      • The parkway is a limited access extension of Route 234/Prince William Parkway from I-66 in Prince William County to Northstar/Blvd. and U.S. 50 in Loudoun County. Completion of Northstar Blvd. would eventually connect to Route 7 as well. The Bi-County Parkway will be able to connect employment centers and residential communities, as well as providing a critical link for travelers and freight to and from Washington Dulles International Airport. The highway is one step towards a Washington by-pass that could eventually produce another crossing of the Potomac for North-South traffic relieving congestion on I-95 and Route 495.
