The owners of the 52-acre property known as “Brooks Farm” in Great Falls and developer Basheer & Edgemoore have applied to Fairfax County to rezone the property from RA (Rural Agricultural District) to RE (Residential Estate District) and proposed developing the property with 23 new single-family detached homes as a cluster subdivision. On December 3, 2014, GFCA hosted a public meeting regarding this rezoning application. The meeting was to allow the developer to present to the community its development plans, and for community members to ask questions and raise concerns. Speakers at the meeting included representatives of the developer and Fairfax County staff, as well as several Great Falls residents with concerns about the proposed development and its potential effects on the community. Roughly 130 Great Falls residents attended, as did Supervisor John Foust.
