Subject is two parcels dissected by Centerport Parkway.

Land use dominating the NEIGHBORHOOD:

  •   Stafford Regional Airport (jet traffic)


  •   Centerport Parkway and the I-95 Interchange

  •   Centerport Parkway has rights of way sufficient for a four lane divided highway (need VDOT confirmation);

The interchange has sufficient rights of way to become a cloverleaf (need VDOT confirmation);

These resources are the both the greatest and lest utilized transportation resources in the region (great capacity)

  •   Subject 44 acres zoned for 400,000 sq. ft. office;


  •   Subject .6.7 acres zoned for hotel / office / commercial


  •   A tract zoned multifamily (600 du) borders Subject


  •   Industrial ground near airport


  •   FedEX facility near Subject


  •   87 acres opposite Centerport was put under a conservation easement at the NW quad of the interchange; Subject is at the S/W quad of the interchange and is thus the only viable platform west of I-95. Thus, the Subject tract is the only one at that quad of the interchange viable for development.

Rights of Way to expand this to a full clover-leaf interchange

and make Centerport Parkway a four lane divided highway


Below, an excerpt from the 2010 Stafford Comprehensive Plan (Draft, August 2010).

The 44 acres and 7 acres are at the "Airport Interchange", which would become the interchange with I-95 for the "Outer Connector".  Moving traffic from Route 17 to a connection with I-95, North, is a priority. 

Major New Road Planned

Intermodal Hub    -   I-95,   Airport;   Rail

The I-95 Interchange was built as an 'intermodal transportation' resource; linking the Airport, I-95, and VRE Rail. Another feature was the future linkage to the 'outer connector' or beltway around the Fredericksburg Region. Thus, the existing interchange is a diamond but the rights of way are in place to convert the interchange to a full cloverleaf.


Stafford Regional Airport (Jet-Port)

Designed to maximize the safe and efficient movement of aircraft, the Stafford Regional Airport facility includes a 5000-foot by 100-foot instrument runway with full parallel taxiways, Jet-A and Av-Gas fuel storage facilities, and 25 acres of paved aircraft parking aprons.

The 550-acre facilities can accommodate 75,000 annual operations and 100 based aircraft, including corporate business jets, with gross weights up to 70,000 pounds and wing spans up to 80 feet.  An additional 25 acres of rough-graded finished lots are available for lease development of individual, corporate and T-hangar aircraft storage buildings and other aviation related business facilities.

Rail is another transportation option.  The Subject tract is near the Leeland Road Station of Virginia Rail Express "VRE".  The Airport I-95 interchange was built as an 'intermodal transportation hub.

Although there are many differences between Centerport and Dulles; there are also commonalities:  both were rural and grew in economic stature and both share vision.  The Stafford Regional Airport (jet-port) is the designated reliever airport to both Dulles and Regan National.  Below, cover of "Washington Airports Task Force, 25th Anniversary"; 2007.

Urban Development Area Planning

Background and Recent Efforts

On December 14, 2010, after a public hearing, the Board of Supervisors adopted a Comprehensive Plan, which provides a vision for where Stafford County will be in the future in regards to the use of land, the future transportation patterns, protection of natural resources, and location and type of public facilities, schools, and parks.

House Bill 3202, passed by the Virginia General Assembly in 2007, mandated that certain high growth communities create Urban Development Areas (UDAs) within their Comprehensive Plan sufficient to meet projected residential and commercial growth in the locality for an ensuing period of at least ten but not more than twenty years.   In 2010, the General Assembly, through House Bill 1071, amended the UDA provisions, found in Section 15.2-2223.1 of the State Code, to require that any locality with growth rates of at least 5% and populations between 20,000 and 130,000 shall create the UDAs with residential densities of 12.0 condominiums or apartments, 6.0 townhouses, or 4.0 single family homes per acre and commercial densities of 0.4 FAR. The deadline for compliance is July 1, 2011. The proposed Plan considered by the Board on December 14th included eight UDAs. The Stafford Board of Supervisors adopted six of the eight UDAs on December 14, 2010. They are:

Courthouse UDA ;  Southern Gateway UDA George Washington Village UDA;    Eskimo Hill UDA

Centerport UDA ;     Leeland Station UDA

When the Board adopted the Comprehensive Plan on December 14, 2010, Supervisors established a joint committee of the Board of Supervisors and the Planning Commission to develop and recommend Comprehensive Plan amendments necessary to redistribute the 4,000 dwelling units included in the formerly proposed Stafford Station and Brooke Station Urban Development Areas, which were recommended by the Planning Commission on November 17, 2010, but not adopted by the Board. The Board directed that the 4,000 dwelling units that had been proposed for the Stafford Station and Brooke Station UDAs be distributed in one of the six UDAs adopted on December 14, or in one or more new UDAs to be proposed by the joint committee.

The joint committee consists of Board of Supervisors members Paul Milde, Aquia District, Gary Snellings, Hartwood District, and Bob Woodson, Griffis-Widewater District, and Planning Commission members Ken Mitchell, Aquia District, and Scott Hirons, Falmouth District.

The full Board of Supervisors plans to discuss the Urban Development Area planning process at its January 4, 2011 meeting. The joint committee of the Board and the Planning Commission is in the process of scheduling public meetings to discuss options for the dwelling units. The meetings will be open to the public and publicized as soon as they are scheduled.
