Re: Rose Hill Park, Section III

Dear Carl:

We are in receipt of your letter dated November 14, 2003. We appreciate your community's willingness to work with us to achieve an appropriate plan for the residential development of Rose Hill Park, Section III.

We understand the community is most concerned about the soils on the property and what measures will be taken to ensure that there is no damage to adjacent homes associated with the proposed development. As a result, we will be working with the Fairfax County planning staff to prepare development conditions that will be a part of the special exception approval.

The special exception application submitted to the Department of Planning and Zoning has been accepted and assigned the following application number, SE 2003-LE-036. A Planning Commission hearing has been scheduled on March 11, 2004. The staff coordinator assigned to evaluate the application is Cathy Lewis. Once we have initial County comments on the plan we will coordinate with Ms. Lewis to prepare draft development conditions and forward a copy to you for review and comment. We would like to schedule a meeting with you and the ad hoc committee in January.

We look forward to the opportunity to continue to work with you and your neighbors as we proceed through this special exception process. Should you have any questions regarding the above, or require additional information, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

Very truly yours,


Diane Cox Basheer, Trustee

Kenneth O. Thompson, Trustee
