Second public meeting Dec. 15 on proposed elementary school on Chinn Park land in Woodbridge

A second public meeting on a proposed “PW Parkway Elementary School” at Chinn Park will be held on Tuesday Dec. 15, from 7-9 p.m. at Gar-Field High School, 14000 Smoketown Road, Woodbridge, VA 22192. The first public meeting was Nov. 30.

Proposed for a site within Chinn Park in Woodbridge, the new school would be ready by the start of school in 2018 and relieve overcrowding at Vaughan, Westridge, Marumsco Hills, Kerrydale, Springwoods, and other area schools.

A press release said the public can “learn more, provide feedback, and have concerns addressed at this second public meeting hosted by Prince William County Schools’ Office of Facilities Services.

Being called temporrily the “PW Parkway” Elementary School, the new school had been described as “Elementary School East (Neabsco Mills Area)” in the School Division’s Capital Improvements Program (CIP) for Fiscal Years 2016-25. The proposed location will address student housing needs in the Neabsco Mills area and the western Lake Ridge area, based on current elementary school boundaries.

The CIP provides general guidance over a ten-year period to address the demand for new schools, additions to existing schools, site acquisition, school renewal, upgrading, and maintenance of PWCS infrastructure. The plan is reviewed and updated annually, with long-range plans adjusted to reflect the latest enrollment projections and financial limitations.

Contact Maureen Hannan, supervisor of Land Acquisition and CIP Planning, at 703-791-7312 with any questions.
