Planners Set to Vote on City Center Monday

The City of Falls Church’s appointed citizen volunteer Planning Commission is expected to vote its recommendations this Monday regarding the large, mixed-use City Center plan, given unanimous preliminary approval by the City Council last month.

Asked by the Council to bring their public hearings and deliberations to a vote at their meeting this Monday, the Planners, whether voting for or against the plan, would return the matter to the Council, which is now slated to cast its final vote at a special meeting on Feb. 28. A final public hearing before the Council is set for Feb. 25. In a related development, according to one report, a group of citizens are circulating a petition proposing an anti-mixed use charter change for the May municipal election ballot.
