GFCA will hold an important Town Hall meeting on Brooks Farm on Tuesday, May 10 at 7:30 pm at the Great Falls Library. The program will feature presentations by Great Falls residents who have been involved recently in the negotiations over certain issues arising from a proposal to rezone Brooks Farm as a cluster development; these issues include storm water management, tree preservation and road access. The developer, Basheer & Edgemoor, has revised its original development proposal several times in the past year in response to discussions with Fairfax County and Great Falls residents. The Fairfax County Planning Commission held a hearing on the proposal on January 21, 2016 but has deferred a decision while several remaining issues are addressed. These issues will be covered at this GFCA meeting.
GFCA continues to oppose approval of the current proposal.
All GFCA members and Great Falls residents are encouraged to attend, both because of Brooks Farm’s importance and also because this meeting will provide a window into how the County evaluates rezoning and development proposals, and how the opinions of neighbors, HOAs, civic organizations and residents factor into their decision.
