GFCA will hold a special TownHall meeting on Monday, July 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Great Falls Library to update residents on three important proposed developments impacting all corners of our community. Land Use and Development is one of our core activities as part of our Mission to preserve and enhance the quality of life in Great Falls and to defend our semi-rural environment. GFCA has been deeply involved in all three proposals:
- Cluster rezoning at Brooks Farm (in central Great Falls)
- Cluster rezoning at Hill's Nursery (in southern Great Falls)
- A new CVS and retail commercial development (at Seneca Road and Georgetown Pike).
Two of these will have major county decisions made in the next two weeks: the Brooks Farm application is scheduled for a vote by the Board of Supervisors on July 26 and the the Hill's Nursery application is scheduled for consideration by the County Planning Commission on July 21. The Seneca Road development will be considered by the Planning Commission sometime in the fall.
GFCA board members involved in evaluating these proposals will brief residents on the status of the three proposals and touch on how GFCA and other community groups have sought to address the land use, environmental and transportation issues presented by each of these proposals.
Brooks Farm especially has been an active concern in Great Falls for over a year. GFCA members and the public are welcome at this meeting. Please encourage any interested friends and neighbors to attend.
