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.
- All times estimates are provided as a courtesy, presentations will start after the completion of the proceeding presentation, however long it takes. Recommend that presenters be ready at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled time.
- Prospective presenters are requested to register on the Land Use and Transportation Committee Presentation Registration Form as a condition of their presentation.
- 7:00 — Single-issue proffered condition amendment (PCA) to modify proffer for an already approved new vehicle storage site on Old Lee Road
7:35 — Airport noise contours
- 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. .

- Proposed Zoning Changes Could Impact Your Neighborhood - County staff is proposing some zoning changes that could significantly impact the character of our residential neighborhoods. Please join Springfield Supervisor Herrity at a community meeting on February 19th at 7:30 pm at Clifton Town Hall to learn more and share your thoughts on these proposed changes.
- County staff is proposing some zoning changes that could significantly impact the character of our residential neighborhoods. These changes include revising the zoning ordinance to address agritourism, adding the ability to do a "Rural Resort," and significantly reducing the requirements for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). Because of the potentially significant impacts to our residential neighborhoods, especially in the Occoquan Watershed, he is holding a community meeting on Wednesday, February 19, at 7:30 pm at the Clifton Town Hall at 12641 Chapel Road, Clifton. The purpose of the meeting is to inform residents and obtain feedback on these proposed zoning changes.
- The Code of Virginia permits agritourism by-right when associated with an agricultural operation. However, localities may regulate agritourism activities when there is a significant impact to the health, safety, or general welfare of the public. Agritourism activities are carried out on a farm for recreational, entertainment, or educational purposes. County staff has proposed definitions for agritourism and use limitations to provide thresholds for a predictable and consistent path for future agritourism activities.
- The County is also considering a new land use, "Rural Resort" as a special exception use in certain zoning districts on 20 acres or more. This would allow for the hosting of events such as weddings and corporate retreats on rural properties. He has significant concerns with the proposed Rural Resort use especially in the Occoquan Watershed (R-C).
- Staff is also proposing revisions to standards for ADUs. Currently, all ADUs require special permit review before the Board of Zoning Appeals. Staff is proposing a more streamlined process that would allow administrative approval of an ADU when located within the principal dwelling. Staff is also proposing to limit the size to 1200 square feet. Currently, an ADU is only allowed if someone on the property meets certain age or disability restrictions, but the Board and staff are looking to delete those constraints which may result in an increase of these units in our residential neighborhoods. While he supports easing the requirements for ADUs with the current age and disability restrictions, he opposes eliminating these restrictions. Removal of these restrictions would give most residential housing the ability to add an additional dwelling unit and has the potential to significantly increase the density in our residential neighborhoods.
- The details of these proposals will be shared at the community meeting. Staff will be making a brief presentation on these proposals followed by a question and answer session and an opportunity for citizens to provide feedback.
