Dranesville District Land Use Cases

 

The zoning and land development process in Fairfax County involves comprehensive reviews by numerous county and non-county agencies. The list below includes all pending land use applications in the Dranesville District that require Board of Supervisor approval. The consideration of a Rezoning or Special Exception application includes an analysis by County staff and public hearings before the Fairfax County Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors. All applications are reviewed for conformance with the County’s Zoning Ordinance and Comprehensive Plan.

 

Special Use Permit applications are decided by the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA), which consists of seven members appointed by the Circuit Court. The Board of Supervisors does not have a role in appointing the BZA members or in deciding applications considered by the BZA. For more information about the BZA click here.

The development will consist of 335 single-family attached dwellings and 184 stacked, multi-family dwellings.
 
Access to the property will be provided via a newly constructed extension of River Birch Road, which will connect to Sunrise Valley Drive and Frying Pan Road. The new River Birch Road will be designed as a 4-lane, undivided street. In the interim, River Birch Road will contain two travel lanes on the east side and one travel lane and parallel street parking on the west side. The applicant will also widen and make improvements to Frying Pan Road and Sunrise Valley Drive along the frontage of the property. These critical transportation improvements fulfill Comprehensive Plan recommendations for the area.

The site will accommodate a 135,000 square foot elementary school, a rectangular field, and a play area. The applicant worked closely with Fairfax County Public Schools on the site design to ensure that adequate parking, bus circulation, and recreation space can be provided for the school.
