Developers planning major projects around the West Falls Church Metro station will present their proposals and answer questions at a Nov. 15 information meeting.
Dranesville District Supervisor John Foust’s office and the McLean Citizens Association are sponsoring the event to review plans to redevelop the Metro station property and expand Virginia Tech’s nearby Northern Virginia Center campus, FFXNow has reported.
The even at Longfellow Middle School in McLean will start at 7 p.m. with an open house, where attendees can look at informational boards and talk directly to the developers.
The main meeting will last from 7:30-9 p.m. and include presentations on both projects, an overview of Fairfax County’s zoning review process, and a Q&A period, the published report says.
“Participants will have the opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions and remote participants will be able to submit written questions or comments during the meeting,” Foust’s office said in a community notice, noting that a Zoom link for those who want to follow virtually will be provided a week before the meeting.
“The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors opened the door for mixed-use development in the West Falls Church Transit Station Area (TSA) with an amendment to the county’s comprehensive plan in July 2021,” FFXNow says. “Applications for the Metro station redevelopment and Virginia Tech expansion were submitted for county review in March and September, respectively.”
