- The Fairfax County government’s Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) is considering a change to the Zoning Ordinance that will permit “Residential Studios” in all residential areas under “Special Exception” rules.
- These 500 sq. ft. rental units would provide affordable housing for households earning less than approximately $60,000 (i.e., 60% of the area median income).
- Single family homes could be converted to multi-family Residential Studio units. The proposed ordinance can be found at: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpz/zoningordinance/proposed/residentialstudioinputmemo.pdf.
- The Board of Supervisors has asked the DPZ to obtain more information on studio units in other jurisdictions and to conduct additional outreach to the community in preparation for the public hearing to be held before the Board on November 19, 2013, at 4 P.M. (See Page 43 of the summary of the July 30, 2013, Board meeting at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/bosclerk/summary/2013/13-07-30.pdf.)

- Proponent: John Rinaldi, land planning manager, associate, for the Christopher Companies
- Action: Increase in the enrollment for the private school of general education from 150 students to 300 students. The application will be an amendment of the previously approved SPA in 2012 (SPA 99-Y-065-02).
- Location: North side of Lee Highway (Route 29), east of Bull Run Post Office Road and west of Pleasant Valley Road
The Subject Property is comprised of approximately 20.4 acres and the current zoning of the property according to jurisdictional records is Residential Conservation R-C. Based on the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan, the Subject property is located in Area III of the Bull Run Planning District, within the Stone Bridge Community Planning Sector.
The Subject Property is currently developed as Centreville Presbyterian Church (CPC), which operates as an existing place of worship and a private school of general education. Phase I of the approved building development and Phase II of the approved parking development is current for the Subject Property. The private school of general education is operated by Ad Fontes Academy, a non-profit Christian school at the Church. While the Church has been the subject of previous land use approvals by the Fairfax County Board of Zoning Appeals, the most recent approval was on June 6, 2012 for Special Permit Amendment SPA 99-Y-065-02 to permit a private school of general education. This current approval permits either a child care center or a private school of general education for students from grades K through 12 and with a maximum enrollment of 150 students. It is important to note that the current approval is for both of these uses, but the uses must not be operated concurrently. Currently, the applicant is only using the private school option, not the child care center.
The Applicant is requesting approval for an increase in the enrollment for the private school of general education from 150 students to 300 students. The application will be an amendment of the previously approved SPA in 2012 (SPA 99-Y-065-02). The increase in students for the private school of education will be accommodated through existing classroom space in the existing Church building on the property (Phase I of the approved building development for CPC) and through the addition of two new proposed temporary modular units toward the rear of the property. It is anticipated that the proposed modular units will exist on the property for the private school of education for a duration of up to 8 years.
The only “physical changes” to the property with this application will be the proposed modular units which will be constructed completely within the previously approved “impervious” parking lot area (Phase IV) for the CPC (per SPA 99-Y-065-02). Since the limits of construction for the modular will not extend beyond this previously approved impervious area, there will be no changes to the most recently approved SPA 99-Y-065-02 with regard to tree canopy, open space, undisturbed area, storm water management/best management practices and outfall.
