With Supervisor Dana Kauffman

Vienna Transit Station Capacity Study

March 21, 2005

Mr. Chairman: During the community dialogue, leading up to the changes to the Vienna Transit Station Area Plan, as a result of approval of the Fairlee-Metro West Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment Plan, the existing and future capacity of the Vienna Metrorail station became a primary concern. As a result, the approved Plan specifically requires that a capacity study be completed. It is anticipated that the cost of this study will be repaid by potential future proffer commitments.

To ensure that capacity issues are resolved, both Supervisor Kauffman and I have continued to work with the community, adjacent property owners, the County Department of Transportation, and WMATA. As with nearly all planning issues, the key to facilitating public improvements becomes an issue of timing. This equally applies to capacity improvements to the Vienna Station. It has become readily apparent that a capacity study of the station is needed sooner rather than later.

I therefore move that the Board of Supervisors request the County Executive to include funding for a capacity study of the Vienna Transit Station on the list of consideration items for the FY2006 budget.
