Joint Sully Land Use and Transportation Committee topics
- In light of an amendment to the Code of Virginia, the county has provided us with a statement be to read when our land use committee meets with a prospective applicant for a rezoning or proffer condition amendment (PCA) for new residential development and/or new residential use in areas of the County that are not exempt from Virginia Code Section 15.2-2303.4. It is recommended that if our committee is meeting with more than one applicant to read this statement for each rezoning/PCA.

- 7:00 — Retreat at Westfields (RZ 2019-SU-009)
7:45 — Proffer Condition Amendment application for Dulles Auto Park
- Proponent: Mike Van Atta, McguireWoods
- Proposal: Follow up presentation and discussion for the Retreat at Westfields (RZ 2019-SU-009) on behalf of Elm Street Communities, which is scheduled for public hearing on January 15, to provide an overall update to the group.
- Location: Tax Map 43-4((1))16
The Planning Commission hearing date is scheduled for 1/15/2020. The staff report is available with a favorable recommendation.
- Exempt: Is
- Read Statement: Not Applicable
The proponents have submitted revised proffers for RZ 2019-SU-009.
- The following questions are expected to be asked by Mary Cortina on Fairfax County staff at the public hearing:
- What building envelope/construction methods or acoustic materials are proposed to mitigate noise for this development? I don't see anything proposed and you've stated that general construction using typical materials is adequate for sound levels that can reach 70 decibels. Also, I am not knowledgable in this area, but when we soundproofed a room in our house (drums...) there were two types of standards — the sound transmission for interior spaces and the outdoor to indoor standards (OITC). Did the sound report use the OITC? Unless I missed it, I don't see the report in our PC materials, but I believe it's in the online materials for staff.
- If a prospective purchaser signs away their rights in an avigation easement, are they eligible for FAA/MWAA soundproofing mitigation in the future? Typically, avigation easements are purchased by a locality or airport to compensate the property owner for loss of property value or, alternatively, they can participate in sound mitigation programs that replace windows, outside doors, outside walls with acoustic treatments.
- What sound mitigation is provided for the outdoor areas? I don't see anything proposed.
- Tree canopy, tall trees in particular, provide additional sound mitigation in addition to the other air quality, water quality and quality of life benefits. This application is not meeting the tree preservation target requirement, even though 70% of the site is wooded. How can the site be adjusted to meet the tree preservation target?
- This pertains to Stormwater Determination Letter: I am confused about the timing of construction phases on this project - the site plan is from 2000, so would that have expired in 2005? What is the 2014 general construction permit for? Elsewhere on the Westfields campus?
Sheet 12 shows the pond design based on 82.6 acres. Does the applicant need to provide the impervious conditions for the 82.6 acres to provide a comparison that the pond design is adequate? In other applications that are part of a larger phased development, the cumulative totals are tracked to ensure there is no increase in impervious from the design parameters. Can this be provided?
Also, will your sound expert be available at the hearing to speak?
- In response, this comment was offered by Carol Hawn: the FAA residential soundproofing program (RISP, I believe) cannot be used to insulate new construction. If the building didn't exist by a certain year (at the start of the program in about '87 '91 or so), the building is not eligible for funding.
8:30 — Stanley Martin "Stonebrook at Westfields" rezoning (RZ/FDP 2019-SU-005 Con. W/ PCA 78-S-063-08)
- Proponent: David Houston, Bean Kinney & Korman, PC
- Proposal: Proffer Condition Amendment application to change one proffer from 1999 governing the existing Dulles Auto Park. The applicant is the Dulles Auto Park Owners Association, Inc. and all owners within the Auto Park have consented to the application. The application requests the modification of a portion of a single existing proffer (Proffer #3) to eliminate the sentence that establishes a cap on the number of total vehicle sales buildings at 10. The overall maximum permitted density of 0.20 FAR will not change. No new construction is proposed.
- Location: Dulles Auto Park, 4105-4175 Auto Park Circle, Chantilly, VA
- From the On-line Land Use and Transportation Committee Presentation Registration Form:
Zachary Fountain has been assigned as the Staff Coordinator for this application. David Houston will be meeting with him for the first time on January 10th. Also, the tentative Planning Commission hearing date is March 18th. No Board of Supervisors hearing date is set yet.
- Exempt: Is not
- Read Statement: Not Applicable
Zoning Application and Proffered Condition Amendment Application.
- Proponent: Andrew A. Painter, Walsh, Colucci, Lubeley & Walsh, P.C.
- Proposal: The Applicant is seeking a rezoning to the Planned Development Housing 16 (PDU-16) zoning district to permit the construction of 151 residential dwelling units, containing up to 136 two-over-two stacked townhomes, and 15 townhomes. The density of the proposed project is 12.54 dwelling units per acre. The proposed community will be located at the northeast corner of the intersection of Westfields Boulevard and Newbrook Drive, south of an existing pond, and opposite of The Field at Commonwealth Shopping Center. The Applicant will provide 10 Affordable Dwelling Units (ADUs) and eight Workforce Dwelling Units (WDUs). An approximately 71,500 square foot publicly-accessible terraced park and green corridor will be adjacent Westfields Boulevard overlooking the pond. The terrace will be stepped/benched with hardscaping elements to provide a passive amphitheater-style park for the proposed community and Westfields at-large. An approximately 14,500-square foot community courtyard is proposed to be constructed between two stacked townhome rows, which will provide a visual and physical connection for residents to the terraced park and green corridor to the north. The courtyard will extend south to provide an approximately 4,000-square foot bicycle amenity station open space which will be framed by stacked townhomes, and will provide a visual connection to Newbrook Drive and the existing Newbrook Drive trail. An approximately 11,000-square foot pocket park will serve as a focal point between the stacked townhomes and rear-loaded townhomes on the eastern end of the community, and will include playground equipment, trash bins, and seating.

We've been deferring for a few months (and we may need to defer again), but we've been trying to resolve some of the more critical staff issues before appearing before the joint land use committee. My earnest hope is that we can come to a resolution by January and would be ready to present. I believe it would be beneficial to have staff present as well (Katie Quinn with DPD is our project coordinator

- Read Statement: Not Applicable
After a series of meetings and discussions with staff, Mr. Painter reported that it might make sense to defer appearing before the SDC/WFCCA on the Stonebrook application There are issues that need to be resolved, and he is working towards the resolution of them. He'll be in touch in the coming weeks as things progress; he is hopeful they would be able to appear in February or March and will confirm as soon as he can.
- The following recommendations based on the 16 December 2019 Joint Sully Land Use & Transportation committee meeting on the Milestone Wireless Telecommunications Facility (Monopole) (2232-Y19-8) were forwarded to the Planning Commission:
- On 16 December 2019, the Joint Sully District Land Use and Transportation Committee (JSDLU&TC) heard several presentations. This summarizes the position taken on the Milestone Wireless Telecommunications Facility (Monopole) (2232-Y19-8):
The JSDLU&TC, in general, supports Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (Monopoles) . However, after careful consideration of the application and based upon views expressed by the project area residents in attendance at this meeting, the Committee has identified the following concerns with this application:
Until these concerns are resolved, the Sully District Joint Land Use and Transportation Committee objects to the approval of this proposal.
- Is this the optimum location for the tower?
- Is there sufficient separation from the tower and residential development?
- Jim Hart reported that he sent staff some questions about the monopole, following the committee's discussion: `
- I read the staff report, wanted to follow up. It looks like both Poplar Tree Park and the Fair Lakes shopping center are much closer than 1 mile from the application site. At the land use meeting with the neighbors, it also looked like the park at least was within their search ring (which seemed overly perfect) and the applicant's answers about alternative sites were not particularly strong. I assume we will have speakers and that the same objections will come up again.
- Did they seriously try to get permission for a rooftop in the shopping center, which I assume would be much less controversial? Does the shopping center satisfy the coverage gap? They never quite said. The attorney equivocated about the reason, but I thought she finally said there was a lease negotiation issue rather than a technical problem or coverage deficiency. If that is what went wrong, who exactly did they ask, and who said no? Is the dispute over the dollar amount (reading between the lines)?
- Did they even ask the park authority about a site in Poplar Tree Park? Again I thought that part of the Q&A was very weak, I never really got clarity on that possibility and what happened. Instead it sounded like VDOT was the easiest site to obtain, even if the neighbors were going to raise a furor.
- What exactly were the alternate sites they told staff they considered?
- there any consideration of a tree pole rather than what they are proposing?
- Jim Hart reported that on 8 Jan 2019 the Planning Commission decision deferred to 1-15-20 on both:

- Public Hearing to Consider the Conveyance of Board-owned Property -
The Board of Supervisors is the owner of three parcels located near the intersection of Lee-Jackson Memorial Highway (Route 50) and Fair Ridge Drive. The vacant parcels, totaling approximately one acre, are the residue of the land incorporated into the West Ox Road/Route 50 interchange.
The Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) is evaluating the possibility of partnering with a private developer pursuant to the terms of the Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002 (PPEA), or through other development means, to construct affordable housing units on the Property. The creation of a new housing development for individuals with low to moderate incomes (the Project) anticipates a rezoning approval.
County staff recommends that the conveyance of the Fair Ridge Properties to the FCRHA be subject to the condition that the parcels must be used in connection with the Project. In the event the FCRHA no longer pursues the Project, the Authority will transfer ownership of the properties back to the Board.

- 7:00 — Germain Property Rezoning and Special Exception
7:45 — Single-issue proffered condition amendment (PCA) to modify proffer for an already approved new vehicle storage site on Old Lee Road
- Proponent: David S. Houston, Bean Kinney & Korman, PC
- Proposal: Rezoning and Special Exception application to rezone 12.06 acres from I-3 Industrial to C-8 Commercial to allow the development of up to three buildings on the Property (95,000 SF) for use as vehicle sales, rental and ancillary service establishments. The subject property abuts the existing Dulles Auto Park and has specific Comp Plan language to be used for the intended uses. (RZ 2019-SU-021 and SE 2019-SU-022)
- Location: South side of Lee Jackson Memorial Highway approximately 1,200 feet west of its intersection with Stonecroft Boulevard (TM 033-2-((01))-0006 (part))
The subject property is known as the Germain Property and has frontage on Route 50 just west of the existing Dulles Auto Park (my other pending case). Attached is the Initial Distribution by the Department of Planning and Development which includes the location map, application forms, Statement of Justification and Generalized Development Plan/Special Exception Plat.
- Exempt: Is
- Read Statement: Not Applicable
Essentially, this application is to rezone 12 acres to allow up to three auto dealerships. The Comprehensive Plan has specific guidance for this property that recommends the proposed uses as a natural extension of the existing Auto Park.
- Proponent: David Gill, Wire Gill LLP
- Proposal: This case is a single issue PCA to modify 1 proffer for an already approved new vehicle storage site off of Old Lee Road. The proffer is to remove the requirement the storage yard use pervious paving as that does not work for vehicle storage. Instead the applicant is expanding their underground SWM facility so the result is improved stormwater management over their existing approval.
- Location: 14800 Old Lee Road. The original approval was 2016-SU-015.
Because single issue PCAs are expedited, our PC is Feb 26th but my hope is it is not a controversial application. .
