Plan to Increase Density of Single-Family Development Moves Forward

Prince Towne, LLC is seeking the county’s approval to replace four single-family homes on the north side of West Ox Road with nine single-family homes.

The Fairfax County Planning Commission will vote on the proposal tomorrow.

The new homes will front a new public cul-de-sac street with sidewalks on both sides. The new street, called Prince Towne Court, will intersect with West Ox Road, according to the development plan.

The applicant has proffered that 0.5 percent of the projected sales price of each unit will go toward the county’s Housing Trust Fund. The developer also plans to contribute $61,310 to Fairfax County Public Schools because the development will generate five additional students.

Planning and zoning staff recommended approval of the project, which they said “is similar to the adjacent residential development as well as surrounding residential areas.”

The Planning Commission will vote on the proposal tomorrow night. A decision on Reston Heights, a mixed-use development at 11830 Sunrise Valley Drive, is also expected.
