Public Comment Sought on F.C. Substandard Lots

The City of Falls Church Planning Commission announced this week that it is eager to hear comments from the public on substandard lot development in the City. The public is invited to a Planning Commission listening session on December 3 at 8 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall, 300 Park Ave., regarding the issue.

The purpose of the listening session is to provide a forum for affected residents, property owners and developers to express their views. 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 substandard lot practice over time.

Members of the public can sign up to speak for up to three minutes in advance by emailing, by signing up in person at the meeting, or by emailing comments to the same address listed here.
