Regular Meeting
July 1, 2003

*There are commercial vans from the County that do not have city stickers. According to city law, all
vehicles housed in the city for more than 30 days must have a city sticker. This is a code enforcement
issue and will be referred to police department.
*He stated that on his street there is are houses that he knows has at least 10/15 people living in it not
including kids. Something has to be done. Councilmember Privett stated the number of people living in
a house goes far beyond Manassas Park. Everyone should contact their state and federal representatives
to see if they can do something. She agrees with him but there is little city can do because we must prove
they are not related. Councilmember Slater stated there is a housing rental ordinance on agenda tonight
for consideration for a Public Hearing, which might help this situation.

2. Tonya Mills: Belmont Station Homeowners Association:
The fence between Digital Park and Belmont Station should be complete within two weeks. The trash is
still being picked up sporadically in the townhouse development at W. Carondelet and Wilcoxen. This is
not an address but an area, which might be part of the problem. The residents in Belmont want to see the
trash pick up left as is and don’t do anything to the property behind Blooms Crossing sign. She gave the
City Manager literature that has been dropped off at her house and wanted to know if anything can be
done as far as solicitation.

8.1     Reserved for Special Announcements:

Manassas Park Women’s Club: Lois Steele and Cathy Evans. Each year the Women’s Club gives public
safety awards for firemen, dispatcher and police officer of the year. The fireman of the year award was
presented to David Sullivan. Dispatcher of the Year Award was presented to Suha Natour and Police
Officer of the Year was presented to Travis Mosher. Suha Natour and Travis Mosher worked on a case
together to bring it to a successful conclusion. All members of the Governing Body congratulated these
individuals for their awards and thanked them for their outstanding performance in providing services to
our citizens. They thanked the entire public safety department for their outstanding services to the City.
They thanked the Manassas Park Women's Club for giving out these awards.

9. Reserved including public hearings and decisions

9 (1) Public Hearing: Conditional Use Permit (03-05) Pet Care Facility (Kennel) in the B-2,
General Business Zoning District

Councilmember Wren opened Public Hearing at 8:25 PM.

This is a request by Mr. Peter Perretta to operate a pet care facility, Yappie Cuttery, on Lot 2 of Quarry
Road Subdivision, located at 9451 Manassas Drive. Lot is approximately 4.2158 acres. The existing
zoning on this site is B-2, General Business which allows for operation of a kennel and animal hospital as
a conditional use. For this reason a request for a conditional use permit (CUP) must be approved by the
Governing Body.
This proposal calls for the operation of a pet care facility that will offer kennel facilities, pet grooming,
obedience training, veterinary clinic, pet grooming training and a room to be used as a dormitory for
persons attending the grooming classes. This proposal includes the construction of a single building that
will be located on Manassas Drive next to the existing Fairfax Academy Daycare.
If approved, the applicants will be required to submit a site plan for this site. They have also been alerted
that a general development plan will be required that shows all of the land between the Quarry Road
alignment and the daycare facility. This will allow for the design of an internal circulation system that
limits the number of accesses points on Manassas Drive this area will need.

Regular Meeting
July 1, 2003

The kennels for housing dogs will be inside the building and not open to the outdoors. An interior, open-
air exercise area is proposed for dogs so that there will be no risk of dogs escaping from the site. The
booklet prepared by the applicant and included with the Governing Body’s packets are for illustrative
purposes only and an approval of this CUP does not constitute an approval of any of the design elements
described in this booklet. The design of this building will be discussed at the time of site plan review.
Prince William County has no objection to this use as long as the kennel facility was an indoor use. The
City has been talking to the owner about a joint venture to house city animals and stray dogs. The
Planning Commission recommends approval.

Citizens wishing to address Public Hearing: There were no citizens wishing to address this hearing.

Close Public Hearing at 8:30 PM

MOTION: Councilmember Correll
SECOND: Councilmember Privett

9 (2)   Public Hearing: Conditional Use Permit Indoor Sports Facility

Councilmember Wren opened Public Hearing at 8:30 PM.

This is a request by Ms. Donna Tucker to operate a cheerleading training business called RAH on Lot
3 of Digital Park Business Centre located at 9115 Digital Drive. This lot is approximately 129,542
SF or 2.97 acres. The existing zoning on this site is I-1, Industrial in which the operation of an indoor
sports facility is permitted as a conditional use. For this reason a request for a conditional use permit
(CUP) must be approved by the Governing Body.
Cheerleading has evolved into a physically demanding activity that incorporates many elements of
gymnastics and is often performed in a competitive setting. As such it is considered to be an indoor
recreational use.

This business is seeking approva l and if this request is approved, the applicants intends to lease one of
the sixteen bays within the building. In addition to their regular training activities, this business will

The applicants are requesting to be allowed to operate this business between the hours of 9:00 A.M.

by the Governing Body for the Clash volleyball group will not be occupying the five bays that they
were interested in. That group has decided to not proceed with their plans to open their business in
this location and the bays they were interested in have been promised to another company.

There were no citizens wishing to address Public Hearing.
The Planning Commission recommended approval with condition on one year for review.
Becky Dailey, 9218 Matthew Drive, is a staff member. She stated that parking would not be a
problem because the kids are dropped off at the building. They anticipate about 150 children will
participate at various times. They do gymnastics, a lot of training, and weight lifting, etc. Ages are
from 5 – 18. They have four squads that do nothing but compete.

9 (3) Public Hearing: Zoning Ordinance Amendment: Landscaping & Buffering:

Councilmember Wren opened Public Hearing at 9:36 PM.
The Planning Commission received input from a resident of the city at one of their meetings earlier
this year concerning the need for adopting definitions for the terms “single-story” and “two (2) stories
and higher.” This request was made in reference to Section 31-33 (3) of the Zoning Ordinance, which
sets the required buffer between residential land uses, and adjacent commercial and industrial land
uses based on the number of stories of the non-residential buildings.
The current language refers to single-story and two-story and higher commercial and industrial
buildings. Though this seem to be adequate language when adopted, the construction of a new
industrial building in the Digital Park Business Centre brought a potential weakness to light. The
building was designed as a single-story building but its height could have accommodated two floors.

In order to better state the intent of Section 31-33 (3) the Planning Commission instructed the
Planning Director to draft language that would replace the current language with specific heights.
The Planning Director discussed this issue with the city’s Chief Building Official and they agreed that
twenty (20) feet is a good height to use in place of single-story. Accordingly, the proposed revisions
to Section 31-33 (3) calls for substituting “up to and including twenty (20) foot tall” for “single-story”
in section 31-33 (3) (a) and “that is greater than twenty (20) feet tall” for “two (2)-story or higher” in
Section 31-33 (3) (b).

Planning Commission Recommendation: The Planning Commission held a Public Hearing on this
item at their regular meeting on June 9, 2003. No one from the public spoke on this issue. The
Planning Commission voted unanimously to send this proposed revision to Section 31-33 to the
Governing Body with a recommendation of approval.

There were no citizens wishing to address this Public Hearing.

MOTION: Councilmember Correll moved to close Public Hearing at 8:40 PM.
SECOND: Councilmember Bunner
VOTE: Unanimously passed

MOTION: Councilmember Privett moved to approve Ordinance as corrected: 31-33(3) a twenty (20) foot
tall be changed to (20) feet tall:

An Ordinance to amend Section 31.33, Landscaping and Buffering, of the Code of the City of Manassas
Park, Virginia to substitute “twenty (20)-feet tall” for “single-story” and “greater than twenty (20) feet”
for “two (2)-story or higher”.
BE IT ORDAINED by the Governing Body of the City of Manassas Park, Virginia that

1.   Section 31-33 (3) of the Code of the City of Manassas Park, Virginia is hereby
amended to read as follows:

Buffer widths shall be:
a.        35 feet between a residential use and a single-story commercial or industrial building up to and
including twenty (20) foot tall (buffer width can be reduced to a minimum of 25 feet or 10 percent of the
total site, which ever is greater, if the buffer area would exceed 10 percent of total site)
b.                  40 feet between a residential use and a two (2)- story or higher commercial or industrial
building that is greater than twenty (20) feet tall (buffer width can be reduced to a minimum of 30 feet or
10 percent of the total site, which ever is greater, if the buffer area would exceed 10 percent of total site)
