While the Food Truck Festival, Crawfish Boil and Golf Tournament have come and gone, NVBIA still has many more events coming your way.

NVBIA staff and Chapter members have been meeting extensively with Prince William County staff to advocate for an improved bond release process that will help builders get more of their money back more quickly. Among other issues, we are working to ensure that builders are not on the hook for years after construction problems caused by homeowners.

We have also been working with staff on their proposal for a new zoning category, the Mixed Use Zoning District (MUZD|). This will be applied primarily in the Small Area Plans, but as it was originally proposed, it needed some input from our industry to make it more effective. We have suggested a number of changes, and have been making progress towards a zoning category that will work well for the County, its residents, and our industry.

07/23/2020

The Prince William Board of County Supervisors held a public hearing last week regarding the alignment of Route 28. Last year, Prince William County voters overwhelmingly approved a bond referendum to improve Route 28. County staff has recommended a bypass to connect to Godwin Drive, rather than making improvements to the existing road. Building this bypass and relieving congestion on Route 28 is critical to the future of Northern Virginia, which is why NVBIA has been working with our partners in the Northern Virginia Transportation Coalition to strongly advocate in support of this bypass, including sending a joint letter to the Board. Thank you to all of you who emailed the Board in support of this bypass. The vote will be taken in two weeks, and we will be continuing to do what we can to advocate for critical infrastructure in our region.

07/02/2020

The Division of Legislative Services has released its annual publication highlighting a selection of legislation passed by the 2020 Session of the General Assembly that is likely to affect the daily lives of citizens in Virginia. These new laws just went into effect on Wednesday July 1. They include new laws that give localities the option to enact more incentive-based affordable housing ordinances, give state officials more authority to investigate nonpayment of wages, prohibit housing discrimination based on the source of funds, and prohibit any discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, among many others.

06/25/2020

A new affordable dwelling unit ordinance was enacted by Fairfax City this week. In the past few weeks, the City Council was considering a provision that would have required the affordable units of a project to have the same square footage and dimensions as the market-rate units, along with comparable furnishings and appliances. This would have made it much more expensive to construct ADU’s, causing problems not only for the industry, but also for the purchasers of affordable units. NVBIA advocated strongly against this provision, and the City Council agreed to pass the ordinance without this requirement. As a result, our industry will be more able to build affordable housing in Fairfax City and face fewer burdens to move forward with new projects.

06/18/2020

This Tuesday, the Prince William Board of County Supervisors unanimously passed this measure that we advocated for, putting it into effect immediately. If you have a plan in Prince William County that is expiring on July 1, and you wish to have it extended, please reach out to the Department of Development Services to request an extension.

We are continuing to advocate for measures that would help the industry navigate these difficult times. This week, we sent a letter to Prince William County formally requesting that they extend the July 1 deadline for approvals of permits, plans, and plats by one year. This would enable projects that have been unexpectedly delayed due to the economic uncertainty to come back on line more easily once the declared emergency concludes. We are also advocating for similar extensions in other jurisdictions that have not yet passed them.

06/11/2020

NVBIA has made even more progress on getting extensions on site and subdivision plans extended at the local level. After sending a formal letter to Prince William County requesting an extension, County officials met with us and agreed to a compromise that would authorize the Director of Development Services to issue one-year extensions to plans, provided that they comply with County standards, including, but not limited to, stormwater standards. This proposal will be considered by the Board of County Supervisors on Tuesday. This directive would require the builder to request the extension from the Director, but this request would not require an application, and could be as simple as an email or phone call. If the Board passes this, builders will have until July 1 to request an extension for their plan, which would then be administratively extended temporarily while the staff determines if it complies with current County development standards. If they determine that it does, the Director "shall" grant the extension to July 1, 2021 in these cases.

We are continuing to advocate for measures that would help the industry navigate these difficult times. This week, we sent a letter to Prince William County formally requesting that they extend the July 1 deadline for approvals of permits, plans, and plats by one year. This would enable projects that have been unexpectedly delayed due to the economic uncertainty to come back on line more easily once the declared emergency concludes. We are also advocating for similar extensions in other jurisdictions that have not yet passed them.

Recently, NVBIA sent a letter to Loudoun County formally requesting that the validity period for HOA letters of acceptance be extended from 90 days to 180 days for performance bond release. We are pleased to report that the County has agreed to our request and will change their practice to allow 180 days. This will make the bond release process less cumbersome in Loudoun County, as it can frequently drag on longer than 90 days. NVBIA will keep working to advocate for better processes in all of our jurisdictions.

05/14/2020

Over the past several weeks, a majority of Northern Virginia jurisdictions have adopted procedures to hold electronic public hearings remotely with the public participating via video conference, phone call, or email. Fairfax County was the first to do so, but a coalition of citizen groups in the County sent a letter to the Board of Supervisors urging them to suspend all land use hearings until after the COVID-19 crisis to allow all residents to testify in person at public hearings. NVBIA addressed this issue with a letter of our own arguing that remote participation is actually easier for residents than public testimony and that stopping public hearings would worsen the economic damage to the County beyond what has already occurred or is anticipated. The Board agreed with our position and voted unanimously to continue to hold public hearings remotely and to move forward with the County’s business.

05/07/2020

Bond release has been a major issue across our jurisdictions, and it is one that NVBIA is hard at work to help resolve. Discussions have begun with Prince William County staff to find ways to streamline the process. We are also advocating to Fairfax County that unnecessary delays in street acceptance be avoided as fewer Board of Supervisors meetings are being held during the COVID-19 emergency. Additionally, we have sent a letter to Loudoun County formally requesting an extension of the validity period for HOA acceptance letters. HOA acceptance letters are required for bond release, but are only valid for 90 days. This frequently causes problems, as the process for obtaining a bond release typically takes longer than three months. NVBIA has formally requested that this period be extended to 180 days, so that the process will be more efficient for all involved.

The Herndon Town Council has approved an ordinance extending the expiration of any staff-approved plan, plat, permit, modification, waiver or determination that would have otherwise expired during the disaster until 60 days after the Town lifts its state of emergency. We are continuing to work on this issue across the region to get deadlines extended in more localities.

The Loudoun County Board’s Transportation and Land Use Committee has recommended passage of the changes to the Affordable Dwelling Unit ordinance that we have been working on with the County for a few years. These revisions will bring more affordable units to the County, while making the process work more smoothly for the industry. We will be pushing for the Board to pass this in the coming weeks.
