Hearing Set on Substandard Lot Issue in F.C.

November 20, 2012 9:19 PM1 comment

The City of Falls Church Planning Commission will hold a “listening session” on Monday, Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. in City Hall to hear comments from property owners and interested persons concerning the development of substandard lots.

Of particular concern has been the demolition of existing houses straddling two lots and the construction of two new houses on the two underlying substandard recorded lots. The purpose of the listening session is to provide a forum for affected residents, property owners and developers to express their views and concerns. The City Manager with input from the City Attorney and the Planning Director has developed options including a recommendation that the Zoning Ordinance be revised to phase out the current practice over time.
