The Prince William County Board of County Supervisors has unanimously approved a number of special use permits for new commercial development around the County.
Heritage Hunt 7-Eleven Special Use Permit
By Susan Flanigan
A much-needed gas station for the Gainesville area received unanimous support from the Prince William County Board of County Supervisors in April. A special use permit was approved for motor vehicle fuel sales in connection with a 7-Eleven convenience store as part of the new commercial development currently under construction at Heritage Hunt. The commercial center will be anchored by Harris Teeter. Jay du Von and Susan Flanigan worked with Russ Gestl at Buchanan Partners to gain community support through an extensive community outreach effort and commitment on the part of the property owner to address neighbors’ concerns. The final plan for the convenience store, with three pump islands and 12 fueling stations, includes a commitment to specific building elevations with four-sided architecture, quality building materials (including brick and stone), and supplemental landscaping and screening.
