Prentiss Properties Acquisition Partners, L.P.
Mr. Chairman, Prentiss Properties Acquisition Partners, L.P.
has filed a special exception application for the Willow Oaks
Corporate Center in order to permit the University of Phoenix,
an accredited university, to have a second location in Fairfax
Corporate Center is zoned C-3 and, while schools are deemed
a by-right use in such an area, universities require a special
exception. This University would contribute to the continued
revitalization of Merrifield by allowing residents and workers
an opportunity to pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees
locally. Furthermore, as most of the students who will attend
classes at this University will do so after normal working
hours, there will be a limited impact on the surrounding community
in terms of traffic generation.
Chairman, I therefore move to change the public hearing date
for SE 2004-PR-016 in the name of Prentiss Properties Acquisition
Partners, L.P. located at Tax Map 49-3 ((1)) 140 from September
27, 2004 at 3:30pm to August 2, 2004 at 4:00pm.
motion does not prejudice in any way the consideration of
this pending application.
