      • Proponent: Sara Mariska,, Walsh Colucci Lubeley & Walsh PC
      • Action: Comprehensive Sign Plan
      • Location: Timber Ridge Residential Development west of Centreville Road North of Wall Road and East of the Extension of the Air And Space Museum Annex Parkway.
        The Comprehensive Sign Plan for the Timber Ridge residential development was officially accepted by Fairfax County for processing. The plans should be scheduled for public hearing in July. If some initial feedback is provided from Staff in April, it makes sense for us to come to the Council in April. If we do not have any initial feedback, we will postpone the presentation to May.
        Discovery Square – Sara Mariska, of Walsh, Colucci presented plans for monument signs at the residential section of the development off of Rt. 28, near Centreville Road. The signs will be compatible with the development. The developers will present the sign plans to County Staff in September. The signs will be lighted.
        Mr. Parnes said he is concerned that there may be different signs at the other parts of the development. Ms. Mariska said they can only control signs on their land.
        Mr. Grimm made a MOTION to support signs that are uniform and consistent as a template at the Discovery Square development. Mr. Johnston SECONDED the motion. The Council APPROVED the motion. (6-0)

    2. 9:30 - Akridge Westfields Development
      • Proponent: Lori R. Greenlief, Senior Land Use Planner, McGuireWoods LLP
      • Action: Development
      • Location: Westfields
        Akridge would like to discuss their plans for their property in Westfields. They have not filed anything with the County as of yet but are intending to file within 4 to 6 weeks
        Lori R. Greenlief, senior land use planner with McGuire Woods LLP, presented a plan for development between Stonecroft Boulevard, Westfields Boulevard, and Sully Road/Rt. 28. She said The Preserve will benefit the greater Centreville area.
        Akridge in a development company, primarily business/mixed use. The company bought the approximate 50 acres in December 2012. The Comprehensive Plan calls for mixed use.
        Mr. Joe Svatos said The Preserve will have 75 percent residential use with 900 rental units (possibly condos) and 25 percent business use, with about 3,000 square feet of office space. Most of the apartments will be one bedroom or efficiencies. The development will surround a lake. They want to have trails around the lake and tie into the regional trail system. Mr. Svatos said having mostly residential occupancy will reduce traffic. The presenters will return to the Council sometime in 2014.




    The meeting adjourned at approximately 9:40 p.m.
