Land Use and Zoning Issues to be Discussed
The Land Use and Zoning Committee of the Great Falls Citizens Association (GFCA) will hold a public meeting at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 7 at Forestville Elementary School, 1085 Utterback Store Road, Great Falls, to discuss several land use issues. The primary purpose of the meeting is to consider the rezoning application for a portion of the former Hill's Nursery.
*Hill's Nursery Rezoning. A rezoning application has been filed by Gulick Group to construct a residential cluster development of 10 lots, accessed by an extension of Challedon Rd. With a Fairfax County Planning Commission hearing scheduled for Feb. 17, 2016, GFCA is holding this public meeting to hear from adjacent neighbors, County staff and the applicant.
*Brooks Farm Rezoning. A Fairfax County Planning Commission hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 21, 2016 to consider the application of Basheer and Edgemoor for a cluster development of 20 lots. In May 2015, GFCA members passed a resolution outlining their concerns about this rezoning proposal and reiterated them in a letter to Supervisor John Foust (D-Dranesville) in September.
*Marmota Farm. Located at 9800 Georgetown Pike the 22.78 acre parcel is for sale and zoned residential. It could be subdivided and developed by a potential purchaser by right. Several area stakeholders have raised concerns about the future use of this property and a group of residents has proposed that it be purchased as a local park.
GFCA has no decision-making authority on these matters and is serving as a facilitator of information, facts and dialogue. There will be an opportunity for stakeholder groups to address the audience as well as a Q&A period for individuals at the end of the session.
