  6. Land Use and Transportation Committee:

    1. 8:30 - Akridge Westfields Development
      • Proponent: Lori R. Greenlief, Senior Land Use Planner, McGuireWoods LLP
      • Action: Development
      • Location: Westfields
        Proposals for development on this site were previously considered by the Land Use and Transportation committee in May 2015.
        In February the Land Use and Transportation committee considered the out-of-turn Plan Amendment that would be required for this land to be rezoned for majority residential use. The Plan Amendment needs to be approved by the PC and BOS before the rezoning requested by Abridge can be allowed to go forward. The council endorsed the plan amendment with reservations by some members. The reservations are the traffic, school, and park impacts. The primarily residential development could add over 75 new students to Cub Run Elementary School and almost 40 students to Westfield HS. The residential development would probably provide less traffic than commercial development during weekday rush hours. Finally, the council strongly recommended that the development has easy transportation access (pedestrian or cycling) to the local commercial areas. For example, pedestrian and bike signal lights added to the intersection of Stonecroft Blvd and Westfield Blvd will improve safety and connectivity to Weststone Plaza as well as the Sully Shopping Center. Finally, the development could add more residents to the local parks and Cub Run Recreation Center in Chantilly.
        Since the last presentation, Akridge has now switched from apartments, office and retail to retail, apartments, condos and townhouses. The current plan for The Preserve of Westfields was shown at the February Sully Station HOA meeting.

    2. 9:15 - Discovery Plan Amendment
      • Proponent: Tarek S. Bolden, Department of Planning & Zoning, Planning Division, Policy & Plan Development Branch
      • Action: Plan Amendment 2015-III-DS2 Timber Ridge
      • Location: Dulles Suburban Center, Land Unit D-3, Timber Ridge (Tax Map Parcel 24-4 ((1)) 6B4). The Timber Ridge development project is located on the west side of Centreville Road, north of Wall Road and east of the HP campus.
        At the January 27, 2015 Board of Supervisors (Board) Meeting, the Board authorized the consideration of a Comprehensive Plan amendment for Dulles Suburban Center, Land Unit D-3, Timber Ridge (Tax Map Parcel 24-4 ((1)) 6B4).
        The approved development plan for the Timber Ridge site is for a mix of uses, and includes residential, office and retail components at an intensity of .70 FAR. The approved development plan includes three office buildings as part of the mixed-use development, to be located along Air and Space Museum Parkway, a new connector road completed as part of the development.
        The applicant is proposing to replace the approved office use with residential uses – specifically townhomes. This will require a Comprehensive Plan Amendment to revise the recommended land use mix. The Plan amendment will also consider the inclusion of a senior center, youth sports facility, or other County facility on the site.
        The Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) would like to meet with the Sully District Council during our April meeting to discuss this Plan amendment and gather feedback.
