At the Planning Commission hearing on July 10th, the Commissioners deferred making a decision on the application and asked the project team to consider reducing the number of condominium units and increasing the number of single family detached homes.
Our team has been able to make the following changes to the community's residential density:
Stacked Townhouse Condominium Units (2/2s) - Reduced the number of units from 190 to 120 (-70 units or -37%)
Single Family Attached Units (Townhouses) - Reduced the number of units from 84 to 74 (-10 units or -12%)
Single Family Detached Units - Increased the number of units from 36 to 57 (+21 units or +58%)
Overall reduction in units from 310 to 251 (-59 units or -19%)
There have been no changes made to the commitments regarding the school and parks site, the transportation improvements, or the commercial center.

The Staff Reports for the Kline Community CPA, Rezoning, and Special Use Permit were issued by the county planning staff last week. We have uploaded them to the Information and Plans section of the website so that everyone can find them easily.
All three portions of the project received a positive staff report with a recommendation for approval.
We have heard a lot of feedback about the traffic on Rt. 28 between Manassas and I-66. For years the Prince William County Board of Supervisors has been trying to secure the needed funding to build a by-pass or widen the existing road.
Last night the Board voted to approved a bond referendum that will allow the public to vote on whether or not the county may issued $355,000,000 in bonds to complete road infrastructure projects throughout the county. The largest of those projects is the Rt. 28 by-pass/widening that, if approved by the voters in November, would fund $200,000,000 towards it's completion. Previously, the PWC Transportation Department secured $100,000,000 for the project. The combined $300,000,000 would fully fund the project so that it could be completed by 2025.

We appreciate those of you who have been voicing your thoughts and ideas. Overall, we’ve been hearing a lot of questions about whether or not the Prince William County School Board does or does not want an elementary school in this location.
To add some clarity, we posted the following documents in the Information and Plans Section of the website:
- The Board Action from the Prince William County Schools Board (2/21/18) directing their staff to acquire a site for the elementary school as a part of this rezoning application.
- The New Schools / Additions / Schools Facilities (Bond Funded) page from the 2020-2029 PWCPS Capital Improvement Plan
- The most recent (May 1, 2019) Impact Statement from the Prince William County Schools where the schools staff discusses whether or not we have property mitigated our impacts by dedicating the school site.
Hopefully this will make it clear that we have been working with the school's staff for a number of years to property plan for the future students that will live in this community and other the other communities around it.
