Important: Community Information Meeting

Hosted by Supervisor John Cook
May 23, 2017, 7:30 PM, Ponds CC

On Tuesday, May 23, 2017, a Community Information Meeting will be hosted by Braddock District Supervisor John Cook on a proposal to consolidate Fairfax County’s Stormwater Planning Division (SWPD), Maintenance and Stormwater Management Division (MSMD), and Wastewater Collection Division (WCD) on land currently occupied by the WCD and adjacent property owned by Virginia Concrete at Freds Oak Road and the Fairfax County Parkway in Fairfax Station. The meeting will be held at the Burke Centre Conservancy’s Ponds Community Center, 9837 Burke Pond Lane, Burke, at 7:30 p.m.

The proposed new Stormwater/Wastewater consolidated facility would house administrative offices and storage, not actual treatment operations. It would involve construction of a new building on the site of the existing Virginia Concrete facility for offices, conference rooms, locker rooms, and testing and analysis labs, plus maintenance shops, warehousing space, service vehicle parking, fuel dispensing, and equipment and material storage yards. Access would be via Freds Oak Road, with potential emergency or small vehicle access from Clara Barton Drive.

Because this is a proposed Fairfax County government facility, the proposal has been filed and will be considered under the 2232 Review Process. Under this process, a public hearing will be held before the Planning Commission. Following the public hearing, the Planning Commission will determine if the proposal is in substantial accord with the county’s Comprehensive Plan and approve, deny, or defer decision on the application.

Although this proposal will not go before the Board of Supervisors for consideration, it is Supervisor Cook’s policy to seek input and suggestions from the community on land use changes proposed in the Braddock District. Therefore, you are invited to attend this meeting to learn more about this project and offer your thoughts. The Braddock District Land Use and Environment Committee will also be studying this proposal. In the meantime, if you have questions or would like more information, please contact Marcia Pape at Marcia.Pape@fairfaxcounty.gov.
