countywideMASTER PLAN PURPOSE</p><p>The purpose of the park master plan is to:</p><p>Develop a site-specific, long-range vision for the park</p><p>Provide a general guide for appropriate park uses</p><p>Establish the general location for proposed facilities</p><p>Identify resources worthy of protection</p><p>Assess site conditions and community concernsMASTER PLAN COMPONENTSWritten

facilities and use areas</p><p>Conceptual site plan, not an engineered planMASTER PLAN PROCESSMASTER PLAN TEAM</p><p>COMMUNITY INPUT</p><p>PROJECT BACKGROUNDSITE LOCATION</p><p>To start off, lets get a little frame of reference for where the Hogge Property is located.*In the eastern half of Fairfax County</p><p>*Located within the beltwaySITE LOCATION</p><p>For the purpose of guiding future planning, Fairfax County is divided into 4 planning areas</p><p>The Hogge property is located in Planning Area 1SITE LOCATIONPlanning Areas are further subdivided into Planning Districts.</p><p>Within Planning Area 1, the Hogge Property lies within the Baileys Planning District.SITE LOCATION</p><p>At the governmental level, the Hogge Property lies within the Mason Supervisory District.</p><p>SITE VICINTIYLooking a little more closely at the area we can see that:</p><p>the site is located relatively close to the County border, adjacent to Arlington County</p><p>the property is nestled between the heart of the Seven Corners area and the Baileys Crossroads area</p><p>the property is also served by several major transportation routes including:Leesburg PikeColumbia PikeArlington BoulevardLOCAL PARKSThere are several other parks noted in the area</p><p>Within one-half mile:Munson Hill Park</p><p>Within one mile:Spring Lane ParkJEB Stuart ParkBaileys Park</p><p>Also within one mile is Upton Hill Park which is operated by the Northern Virginia Regional Park AuthorityLOCAL SCHOOLSSeveral school are within the vicinity.</p><p>Schools are important to note as they also provide opportunities for recreation.</p><p>Schools include:Stuart High School facilities at high schools typically only support the athletic program for the high school.Baileys Elementary the rectangle field here was recently converted from natural to synthetic turf.Glen Forest Elementary where we have the pleasure of meeting tonight.SITE HISTORYBy looking at some aerial photographs, we can get a sense of the history of the site.</p><p>This photograph was taken in 1937.</p><p>At this time, the property was owned by Ambassador Bradley and his wife Bessie.</p><p>They commissioned construction of the original home on the property around 1930 which was constructed in the Spanish Colonial style.SITE HISTORYEven at this time, Glen Carlyn Road is clearly visible in its current alignment</p><p>The entire area is rural in nature and predominantly established in agricultural uses</p><p>The park site is nearly devoid of tree cover</p><p>The existing loop driveway from Glen Carlyn is already established as the house and several out-buildings are visible</p><p>Long Branch steam can also be seen across the site.</p><p>In 1943, the Mr. Bradley sold the property to the Heishman family.SITE HISTORYBy 1954, neighborhoods can be seen springing up in the area along with some of the local streets such asMagnolia AvenueSixth StreetLebanon Drive.</p><p>A few trees can be noted growing in on the property</p><p>Including indication of a fence line along the west and south property lines.</p><p>In 1954, the Heishmans divided out several parcels from the overall site, establishing what was known as Heishmans Addition to Glen Acres.SITE HISTORYIn 1959, the property was sold to the Hogge family, first acquiring the front three acres, later acquiring the rear portion of the site, creating a site area of just over six acres in total.SITE HISTORY</p><p>Some larger trees now exist on the property, particularly along the driveway and the property lines.</p><p>And the vegetation on the southern portion of the site has grown up.</p><p>TOPOGRAPHYIn general, the topography of the site is gently sloping</p><p>High point is located along Glen Carlyn</p><p>Water flows southward across the lawn area</p><p>Drainage flows to a swale and then a piped section contained within an easement and ultimately into Long Branch</p><p>Portions of the site west of Long Branch also drain into the stream.FLOODPLAINA floodplain exists on the property associated with Long Branch</p><p>The width of the floodplain is fairly narrow, however, as this portion of Long Branch has been contained within a concrete channel.RESOURCE PROTECTION AREARelated to Flat Branch and its associated floodplain, a Resource Protection Area is identified on the property.</p><p>Resource Protection Areas (RPA) are buffer areas mandated by the Chesapeake Bay Ordinance and apply to any streams or bodies of water that ultimately drain to the Chesapeake Bay.</p><p>In their natural condition, RPAsprotect water qualityfilter pollutants out of the stormwater runoffreduce the volume of stormwater runoffprevent erosionperform other important biological and ecological functions, such as habitat for animals</p><p>So that the RPA can achieve these benefits, very little disturbance is permitted within these areas.</p><p>From a park perspective, typically use is limited to location of a trail</p><p>Where you might see development within the RPA, these areas may have been approved or constructed prior to enactment of the Chesapeake Bay Ordinance.TRANSPORTATIONA common concern countywide is transportation.</p><p>Roads in the area are already heavily used and we can all recount our stories of traffic woes</p><p>Although FCPA is not responsible for the current traffic concerns, our intent is to address any additional traffic associated with development of the park</p><p>Any development of the park will be coordinated with VDOT, as with any other development project, to establish safe access to the park.</p><p>Much of the issue related to vehicular trips to the park are linked directly to the types of uses ultimately selected.</p><p>VDOT has already directed that the location of the existing residential driveway would not be acceptable for a park access</p><p>Beyond that, we will need to determine what uses are desired to determine the traffic demand and then to plan from there.SITE PHOTOSJust to help get better acquainted with the site, the next few slides offer some views from around the pro...</p></li></ul>
