- 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. .
- Exempt: Is
- Read Statement: Not Applicable
The Joint Commmittee had no objections to this proposal
- The discussions regarding Dulles Airport noise contours was well-documented by Bonnie Hobbs, a reporter for the Centerwiew, and can be found in its 19 February edition on pages 3, 6 and 7.
- This statement was distributed to county staff, supervisors and planning commissioners:
On 10 February 2020, the Joint Sully District Land Use and Transportation Committee (JSDLU&TC) heard several presentations. This summarizes the position taken on the Retreat at Westfields (RZ 2019-SU-009).
At the last JSDLU&TC meeting in January 2020At this month's meeting, the JSDLU&TC as an entity unanimously recommended that, if, despite its previous recommendation that the rezoning not go forward, it does go forward, that two illustrations, one showing the updated contour map as of 2019 and the other showing Elm Street's proximity to the runways and the flight paths of arriving planes, be included in the developer's latest proffer as documented in the 28 January 2020 letter to the Planning Commission from Emma Estes, DPDZED, subject RX/FDP 2019-SU-009, so prospective homebuyers would have this information. The indicated illustrations are included in this document below.
In addition the JSDLU&TC supports MWAA's request that the Fairfax County Department of Planning and Development notify them in cases where homes, schools, childcare or eldercare uses are proposed in contours of 60 decibels and above or within a specified distance of the end of a runway.

- Shari Akin 703 712 5483 at McGuire Woods is representing Haft Equities, they want an SE to have a drive in bank in Sully Plaza on a vacant pad site that used to be a drive in bank. The plan discourages those uses but the site was already approved many years ago. It was a bank for a long time but has been closed up for a few years. Kelly Atkinson will be staff coordinator.
- Bob Brant at Walsh Colucci is representing Matan Glorus Road LLC to rezone from I-3 to I-4 one of the industrial parcels, 5.18 acres, in the area north of 50 off Stonecroft Blvd south of the airport, for an industrial building. It is in the ANIOD and in the 70+ even under the old map I think, but an industrial use. Kelly Atkinson will be staff coordinator on that one too.
