Post #256: Town meetings this week relevant to MAC zoning

Posted on April 29, 2019
This week there there are two Town of Vienna public meetings directly related to MAC zoning.

On Monday, 4/29/2019, at 8:00 PM in Town Hall, the Town Council will hold a public hearing on 380 Maple West (39 condos plus retail, corner of Maple and Wade Hampton).

Citizens are invited to speak.  Please limit your remarks to three minutes per topic. 

Meeting materials can be found on this page:

On Wednesday, 5/1/2019, at 7:30 PM in Town Hall, all three governing bodies (Town Council, Planning Commission, and Board of Architectural Review) will meet in a joint work session to discuss amendments to MAC zoning. 

No public comment is permitted at this session.  There are no publicly-available meeting materials at this time.

Separately, not directly related to MAC zoning, on Tuesday 4/30/2019, at 8:00 PM in Town Hall, the Transportation Safety Commission will receive a briefing on the draft Street Safety Guide.  The Town is changing the procedures by which citizens may petition for traffic calming, pedestrian crossings, sidewalks, and other traffic safety measures in their neighborhoods.  This new process and manual will replace the “Citizen’s Guide to Traffic Calming” that has been used in Vienna for the past 17 years.  The new procedures and rules differ significantly from the old ones.

The existing traffic calming guide (.pdf) can be found at this link:

The most recent publicly-available version of the proposed Street Safety Guide appears to be from a 2/11/2019 Town Council work session:
