Hearing Rescheduled on Lawyers Road Park
A hearing on proposed changes at Lawyers Road Park in Vienna has been rescheduled for Jan. 26 after being postponed Dec. 15 because of snow.
The 7 p.m. hearing, conducted by the county Park Authority, will be at Flint Hill Elementary School. Park officials will talk about plans for the 13.7-acre park, which is on the west side of Lawyers Road and about a mile south of Hunter Mill Road.
There are no existing structures or facilities on the site. The draft park master plan calls for tree preservation on about half of the property and the development of a creative play area with a small pavilion, a loop trail system with a fitness cluster and one rectangular field.
There would also be site improvements such as an entrance drive, 70 parking spaces and storm water management rain gardens.
The plans are available for review at the Fairfax County Park Authority, Herrity Building, 12055 Government Center Pkwy., Suite 421, or on the Park Authority Web site at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks .
Flint Hill Elementary School is at 2444 Flint Hill Rd., Vienna. Individuals who want to speak at the hearing should call 703-324-8662 or send an e-mail to Parkmail@fairfaxcounty.gov .
The comment period will end Feb. 27. Comments can be sent to the e-mail address or mailed to Irish Grandfield, Project Manager, Fairfax County Park Authority, 12055 Government Center Pkwy., Suite 421, Fairfax, Va. 22035.
