Land Use in the Braddock District
It has been a number of months since there were any land use
applications pending in Braddock District. Recently, however, three
applications have been formally submitted to the county for
Danbury Forest. A Final Development Plan Amendment has been submitted by this community to address a desire to make improvements to their homes, including additions, which do not meet current yard setback requirements. Danbury Forest also wishes to make changes to its common open space for a variety of uses. Supervisor Cook will host a community meeting on May 13 at 7:30 pm at Kings Glen Elementary School to allow the community to review and comment on the application.
Bryce Estates. Christopher Land, LLC has submitted an application to develop a 3.4 acre parcel on the west side of Burke Lake Road just north of its intersection with Burke Center Parkway. The property currently has one home and the applicant proposes to put 10 single family detached homes on the site. Supervisor Cook will hold a community meeting regarding the application, tentatively set for June 15.
Song Subdivision. Hyang and Yon Song have proposed Special Exception 2010-BR-006 on their two acre property located at 10611 Zion Drive, an area currently zoned for one house to the acre. The exception is required because the parcel does not have the minimum 150 foot front yard width required for this zoning category. No public hearings for this application have yet been scheduled, but the supporting documents are available in the Braddock office.
University Mall. Before this application can be scheduled for community review, a number of non-County issues must be addressed by the applicant, College Town Associates. The proposal would substantially reconstruct and modernize this 19.74 acre parcel at Ox Road and Braddock Road across from George Mason University. Supervisor Cook will update you as more information becomes available.
