|The Campbell and Ferrara property|
The Fairfax County Planning Commission again delayed action on proposed infill developments on the Peace Valley Lane and Campbell and Ferrara properties. Both proposals are bitterly opposed by the affected community associations.
The commission approved a request by Janet Hall, the planning commissioner representing the Mason District, to defer a vote on the Campbell and Ferrara rezoning request until April 26 because she said more time is needed to get information from VDOT and the county transportation department on the impact of the development on nearby roads.
The proposal calls for 33 single-family houses on the site of a plant nursery on Little River Turnpike next to the Willow Run community. The Mason District Land Use Committee voted Feb. 28 to urge the Planning Commission to reject the rezoning request.
A vote on the Peace Valley Lane proposal was deferred until the April 18 Planning Commission meeting. Hall requested the delay citing the need for more input from the developer and community. The proposal calls for the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan to be amended to allow up to eight houses on a 1.8-acre tract in the Ravenwood Park neighborhood near Seven Corners.
