- Location: 6400 Old Centreville Road
- Doug Sampson is outside legal counsel for New Cingular Wireless PCS d/b/a AT&T ("AT&T"). AT&T is proposing a facility disguised as an 86-foot tall, functional bell tower attached to the existing church building. It will be designed to blend into the neighborhood while providing improved wireless services to the surrounding community. The facility will have space for AT&T and two additional wireless providers to bring necessary services to the area. The proposed facility will also be equipped with FirstNet – a nationwide high-speed broadband communications platform dedicated solely to America's first responders and emergency personnel which was established by the U.S. Congress following the attacks of 9/11. AT&T is excited about the opportunity to bring both emergency and non-emergency communication services to this part of Fairfax County.
- They had planned a balloon fly at the height of the proposed belltower on January 9th, and scheduled a virtual community meeting for owners of surrounding properties and any area HOAs.
- Here is the presentation for tonight's meeting PPTX PDF
- Also provided are a copy of the zoning drawings for the project and some information on FirstNet with which this site will be equipped.
- 8:30 — Finalization of our Zmod response
- Last month we considered the county's draft ZMOD (Zoning Ordinance Modernization Project) proposal, We developed an Approved Coordination Version (ACV) for preliminary distribution to concerned Fairfax County citizens so that we could incorporate additional feedback to the draft resolution.
- We asked that the link be distributed to others not on the distribution message who might also be interested. We encouraged other Fairfax County citizen organizations to join the committee as cosigners of the resolution or endorsing it when it is sent to the county.
- 9:30 — Proposed changes to the Housing Authority procedures
