Planning Commission Delays Decision Again on Spring Hill Project

The Fairfax County Planning Commission is delaying its decision on two mixed-use developments by the Spring Hill Metro station again.

Commissioner Phillip Niedzielski-Eichner, who represents the Providence District, asked the commission last night (Wednesday) to push its vote on the proposed project to next month.

Niedzielski-Eichner said the postponement is to give more staff more time to review a resubmission and changes by the developer, Georgelas LLC.

The project is split into two parts — North Spring Hill Station and West Spring Hill Station — and would transform current car dealerships along the north side of Tyco Road into commercial and residential units.

Previously, the project has been held up over Fairfax County planners’ concerns that the West Spring Hill Station doesn’t fulfill the Tysons Comprehensive Plan.

The decision was previously postponed from December, when Niedzielski-Eichner said that the Georgelas LLC asked for more time on the application.

The project is now scheduled to go before the Planning Commission on April 22.
