County says development standards and protections in Seven Corners Plan Amendment not changed by proposed zoning ordinances.

On August 21, 2015, Fairfax County issued proposed amendments to its current zoning ordinances for public comment by September 4th.  Clyde Miller, one of the leaders of the Community Working Group that worked actively on the Seven Corners Plan Amendment, believed these zoning amendments would undermine the development standards and protections established in the July 28th Plan Amendment.  On August 31, I inquired of the County whether this was so.  They said that was not the intent of the amendments, and they attached a response they had sent Mr. Miller regarding his August 24th comments.  We are posting these documents, so that all may see the underlying documents.
