The ZTA was heard by the Planning Commission last night and was approved on a 5-3 vote with our support. Throughout the year, NVBIA has been working closely with Prince William County staff on their proposed Zoning Text Amendment to create a Mixed Use District zoning category. The initial draft contained a lot of provisions that would have been difficult for our industry to implement, particularly overly high minimums that were above what the market will support. The latest version is much improved and will be a useful tool for builders who are building mixed-use developments in Prince William County.

The ZTA was heard by the Planning Commission last night and was approved on a 5-3 vote with our support.

Prince William County County needs more funding for planned commuter garage in Woodbridge
by Daniel Berti Times Staff Writer, Oct 27, 2020

Prince William County is seeking additional state and federal funding for a $53
million commuter garage on Opitz Boulevard after a failed effort to build a new
stadium for the Potomac Nationals left a $17 million hole in the project’s budget.
The parking garage, once intended to accommodate commuters as well as P-Nats
fans, is now intended to relieve capacity at nearby commuter park-and-ride lots.

10/29/2020

SB 5106, our bill to extend the deadlines of plans, plats, and other land use approvals from July 1, 2020, to July 1, 2022, was signed into law by the Governor last night.

The bill will become law on the 1st day of the 4th month following the Sine Die adjournment of the Special Session. That adjournment has not yet occurred, but may happen in November. In that case, it would go into effect on March 1, 2021.

SB 5106 extends any subdivision plat, recorded or final site plan, special exception, special use or conditional use permit, or approved rezoning that was valid and outstanding as of July 1, 2020. The first extensions were actually done first at the local level by Fairfax and Prince William Counties at the urging of NVBIA, but this legislation will extend projects all over Virginia.

Thank you to the Governor and to the General Assembly for helping the industry keep these projects alive in these difficult times to help drive the economic recovery in the Commonwealth as we recover from the COVID-19 crisis.

10/22/2020

The General Assembly has passed adjustments to the state budget in light of new revenue projections since the COVID-19 crisis began. The Governor initially proposed $85 million for the Virginia Housing Trust Fund over a 2-year period.

The General Assembly voted to keep this amount but to designate $12.5 million of the funding to the continuation of the Virginia Rent and Mortgage Relief Program, which is currently being funded through the CARES Act. NVBIA strongly supports increasing the funding for the Trust Fund, which will help increase access to affordable housing throughout our region.

10/15/2020

Last week, the Prince William Board of County Supervisors rejected a motion that would have deferred all work on the Comprehensive Plan and all rezoning applications for many months while the County works on defining the concepts of equity, affordable housing, and environmental justice. We support the County’s work on these concepts, but there is no reason to shut down development while that work is being done. A moratorium would have been devastating to the industry and to the County’s economy, which is why we advocated strongly against it, and we were happy to see it rejected on a 5-3 vote.



In other good news, the House of Delegates passed our plan extensions bill, SB 5106, on an 89-5 vote yesterday. Due to a minor friendly amendment, the bill will have to return to the Senate for final passage, but the initial version passed the Senate 32-4, so passage should be likely. After that, the bill will go to the Governor’s desk. This legislation will extend the deadlines for subdivision plats, recorded plats, final site plans, special exceptions, special use permits, conditional use permits, and certain proffered conditions from July 1, 2020, to July 1, 2022, provided that the plans and permits were active at the time. That means that this applies to projects that began in 2015 or later, but not those that have been extended since the housing crisis. This is a major victory for the industry that will help our members who ran into roadblocks after COVID-19 hit keep their projects on track.

Our members benefitted from two big legislative wins this week. First, the House General Laws committee unanimously passed SB 5106, which would extend the deadlines for certain plans, plats, and permits that were active on July 1, 2020 for another two years to July 1, 2022. We sent a letter to Northern Virginia’s representatives on the committee supporting of this important bill. SB 5106 already passed the Senate and will soon go to the House floor for a vote.

Second, the Prince William Board of County Supervisors voted to reject a motion that would have stopped work on certain small area plans and would have blocked any new comprehensive plan amendments from being initiated until the ongoing comprehensive plan update is finished. This motion would have been devastating for many new projects that might be proposed over the next several years. Steven Marku, NVBIA’s Government Affairs Director, spoke against the resolution at the meeting and fortunately for our members, the Board heeded our arguments and rejected the measure on a 5-3 vote.

08/27/2020

In response to the unprecedented economic uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, our industry has worked with several development community stakeholders to draft legislation extending the validity of various local government land-use approvals. The resulting bill, SB 5106, passed the Senate Local Government Committee by a vote of 10-1 last week.

SB 5106 would extend the validity of subdivision plans, recorded plats, final site plans, valid special exceptions, special use permits, conditional use permits, and many proffered conditions that were valid on July 1, 2020 until July 1, 2022. Although we have successfully gotten narrower extensions in certain localities, this would apply statewide, covering all of the Northern Virginia jurisdictions and extending them even longer. The measure will soon be voted on by the full Senate. NVBIA has written the Northern Virginia delegation in support of the bill.

Come out to NoVA Build PAC’s Oyster Roast on Thursday September 24 at Belmont Bay. This year’s event will be a fundraiser for Build PAC, which supports pro-housing candidates for state and local office. With so many new faces in power both locally and in Richmond, it is more important than ever that we put our PAC in the strongest position to advocate for good housing policies in Northern Virginia. This will be a great chance to safely socialize and network with people in the industry and with elected officials from throughout the region while supporting NoVA Build PAC. We are still accepting sponsorships, so if you’re interested, please contact Steven Marku at [email protected] or Debbie Rosenstein at [email protected].
