Residents hoping to comment on Madison Homes, Inc.'s  application to build more than 10 homes in Burke will have to wait a little longer to submit their feedback. Both scheduled public hearings for the proposed development have been deferred until October.

The rezoning application, which was filed by Madison Homes earlier this year, asks to build 13 single-family detached homes on 5.28 acres of land on Spring Lake Drive in Burke adjacent to Calvary Christian Church. The development is referred to as the "Enclave of Burke."

A public hearing in front of the Fairfax County Planning Commission was scheduled for Sept. 18, but the hearing was deferred to Wednesday, Oct. 9.

The Fairfax County Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) was scheduled to hear comment Wednesday on the special permit application from Calvary Christian Church (which accompanies the Madison Homes rezoning application) to allow construction of an extended detention stormwatwer management pond that would serve the church and the Enclave of Burke development. BZA Chairman John Ribble announced at the beginning of Wednesday's meeting that the hearing was deferred to Oct. 30, at the request of Madison Homes.

Residents can sign up to speak at the public hearing by pre-registering online or by calling 703-324-2865 before 3 p.m. on Oct. 9 and Oct. 30. Speakers not on the list will also be recognized by the commission once all registered speakers have presented.

It is important for Burke residents get involved regarding this invasion of our community. Please register to speak or plan to attend this public hearing in support of limiting insertion growth - before the tree cutting sweeps through our peaceful neighborhood. If you don't believe this will happen - check out a satellite view of Madison Homes current project in McLean (6541 Divine Street, Mclean, Va) and you'll see all that's left is dirt!
