Dar Al Noor Mosque Expansion
The Lake Ridge-Occoquan-Coles Civic Association’s (LOCCA) Planning, Environment, Land-Use, and Transportation (PELT) Committee has reviewed and discussed the subject project on several occasions in coordination with the surrounding neighborhoods. We have also provided letters expressing our thoughts, concerns, and recommendations. Viewed in isolation, we believe this project has several redeeming and positive features — a center for religious worship, daycare, school, community event center, walk-in clinic, and other community activities. These services are a welcome and valued part of the fabric of our community and enhance quality of life for the patrons and the community at-large. However, this project cannot be viewed in isolation; we must take into account the overall vision and the expansiveness of the project on the available land and within the context of the surrounding neighborhood facilities and services. It cannot be viewed simply from the ground level. Our 3rd letter on this project, addressed to Mr. Scott Meyer in the Planning Office and copied to all Supervisors, is below

The Preserve at Long Branch
The 339.1 acre Project is located 1 mile west of the intersection of Route 234 and Canova Drive, near the Woodbine Woods and Sinclair Mill Road areas. Most of the project area is within the Rural Area but some is within the Development Area. It was formerly known as "Mid-County Park & Estate Homes." The CPA seeks to replan 21.4 acres to County Registered Historic Site (CRHS); 170.9 acres to Parks and Open Space (P&OS) and 145.9 acres to Semi-Rural Residential. 171.2 acres will remain “Rural Area” and 167.9 acres will revert to its pre-1998 “Development Area” status. The rezoning seeks to change ±145.9 acres from A-1, Agricultural, to SR-1, Semi-Rural Residential, for the development of up to 102 single-family detached residential units on 1 to 4-acre lots; and to donate a ±168.6 acre natural area preserve and ±21.4-acre offsite historic preservation area (known as the Historic Maddox-Sinclair Mill Preservation Area) to the County as 190 acres of parkland that connects to Doves Landing Park and provides public access to the Occoquan River. The project density is 3.32 acres per home. (Concurrently being processed with #CPA2020-00008; Rezoning request received June 30, 2016, not subject to SB549. Full LOS monetary contributions are proffered.
