Public Hearing Scheduled for Willow Run Planned Housing Development

The hearing will be held next week in front of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.

Residents will have the opportunity to voice their opinions on the proposed application to build near the intersection of Willow Run Drive and Little River Turnpike area during a public hearing in front of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, July 31.

According to the draft agenda item from the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, the hearing will be at 3 p.m.

Mason District residents and civic associations have been vocal in their opposition of the plan, citing stormwater issues and concern over whether the homes will fit with the current neighborhood as two of their fears.


Back in June, the Fairfax County Planning Commission approved the rezoning request for RZ/FDP 2011-MA-029 Neighborhoods, VI, LLC.

If the Board of Supervisors votes in favor of the plan, Stanley Martin will be allowed to move forward with their proposal to develop 29 single-family style homes on 8.79 acres of property currently occupied by Campbell & Ferrara Nursery off of Little River Turnpike.

The hearing will be held in the Board Auditorium of the Fairfax County Government Center, located at 12000 Government Ctr. in Fairfax.

Unfortunately, the Board of Supervisors will do whatever Penny Gross tells them to vote for because it is in her district. If there ever is an example of what PDH (Planned Housing Development) zoning could do to destroy a neighborhood and its environment this is it. This development plan is so bad that two Planning Commisioners could not bring themselves to vote for it but instead abstained. However, those planning commissioners did not have the courage to vote no. It truly takes courage and character to go against a supervisor who wants something detrimental to their district. I'm pretty sure that not one supervisor or fthe chairman on the Board of Supervisors has that type of leadership.

3:00 in the afternoon? Simply put, that is NOT a time that allows most citizens to attend. Is it any wonder why it's scheduled for the convenience of the supervisors and not the people?! And one more thing -- it's OUR district, not Penny's. But at least the Patch put the information out there.
