- Action: Crilley Warehouse, LLC Amendment to change SUP 2003-SU-012
- Location: 14810 Murdock St, Chantilly, VA
On the docket with the BZA on July 31, 2013 at 9:00 a.m.
The property is now being utilized as a lacrosse facility and is run under the name of Nova Field House by Pat Stewart. Mr. Stewart runs a lacrosse league and has hundreds of youth participants in the community. Nova Field House has the appropriate Non-Rup (non-residential use permit) as required by the County. Mr. Stewart has a company called Triple Edge Lacrosse (link to: http://www.tripleedgelacrosse.com/About_us.html)
In our letter of justification, we confirmed that we are seeking minor changes. The first change is to have the SUP in the name of the property owner (Crilley Warehouse, LLC) and to allow the permit to run with them. Nova Field House is a co-applicant. However, if they terminate their lease my client, Crilley Warehouse, LLC, wants to be able to substitute another Lessee in without going back before the board. This is a typical practice within the County for properties with SUPs.
Next, as it stands now, there are no hours listed in the actual SUP. We would like to continue with this provision. As you are probably aware, the area is an industrial area zoned I-3. It has no nearby residential and has the distinction of being one property away from the Police Shooting Range. Noise is not an issue with the facility. The activities are inside the building except for the parking. We are not seeking to change the amount of car trips, capacity or anything else.
Please feel free to call me or email me with any questions. I am sure Pat Stewart will allow any interested party to visit and walk around the facility. It would be best to either call me or Mr. Stewart prior to arriving to ensure there are not events which prohibit access.

Our previous public meeting in November included discussion of preliminary network concepts and study alternatives. We are now at the important juncture of providing preliminary recommendations for the HQTN. Based on an evaluation of preliminary network concepts and an analysis of demand, cost effectiveness, land use and infrastructure, a preliminary HQTN was derived.
