The Mixed Use District  – A Flexible Approach to Use and Density

Written by: Olaun Simmons, Esq.

In 2021, Prince William County adopted a new zoning district entitled “Mixed Use District (MXD).” The new Mixed Use District seeks to provide a thoughtful approach to development because it allows for flexible land development, promotes
transit-oriented development, and encourages a mix of residential and commercial uses in a single zoning designation. Under the MXD umbrella, there are three tailored mixed-use zoning designations that provide specific details and guidance regarding allowable uses and density.

Mixed Use District-Neighborhood (T-2)

The Mixed Use District-Neighborhood (MXD-N) is intended for smaller-scale mixed-use developments that are surrounded by lower-density residential areas, as well as in neighborhood corridors, or at the edges of town centers. The MXD-N allows for by-right uses such as single-family detached homes, craft breweries, and coffee shops; secondary uses such as child-care facilities and farmer’s markets, and special uses such as kennels and indoor shooting ranges. In terms of density, the MXD-N has a Transect 2 designation which allows for a residential density of 0 – 4 du/acre and non-residential density of 0 – 0.23 FAR.

Mixed Use District-Community Zoning District (T-3 and T-4)

The Mixed Use District-Community Zoning District (MXD-C) is intended to encourage a diversification of uses, including residential, commercial, and civic uses. The MXD-C is intended for a variety of sites and in smaller mixed-use areas that are well served by transit. The MXD-C allows for by-right uses such as distilleries, hotels, and religious institutions; secondary uses such as attached single-family dwellings and farmer’s markets; and special uses such as bed and breakfasts, retail stores, and restaurants. In terms of density, the MXD-C allow for more density than the MXD-N. The MXD-C has two transect designations: T-3 and T-4. Transect 3 allows for a residential density of 4 – 12 du/acre and non-residential density of up to 0.57 FAR, and Transect 4 allows for a residential density of 8 – 24 du/acre and non-residential density of up to 0.1.38 FAR.

Mixed Use District – Urban Zoning District (T-5 and T-6)

Finally, the Mixed Use District – Urban Zoning District (MXD-U) is intended to encourage the development or redevelopment of mixed-use centers that combine new or existing retail development with a variety of housing, offices, studios, live-work space, civic buildings, and other complementary uses arranged in a cohesive, compact, and walkable environment. The MXD-U zone must be located along existing or planned high-capacity multi-modal transportation corridors. The MXD-U allows for by-right uses such as assisted living facilities, multi-family dwellings, and hotels; special uses such as attached single-family dwellings on lots in excess of one acre; and special uses such as restaurants and self-storage centers.  In terms of the allowable density, the MXD-U allows for the most density. The MXD-U has two transect designations: T-5 and T-6. Transect 5 allows for a residential density of 20 – 50 du/acre and non-residential density of up to 2.30 FAR, and Transect 6 allows for a residential density of 50 -100 du/acre and non-residential density of up to 3.0 FAR.

The new MXD zoning designation is designed to provide developers with the flexibility needed to obtain the desired mix of commercial and residential uses and density on the site. The flexibility provided by the MXD will also be useful for developers who are seeking to revitalize aging properties within Prince William County.

Department of Labor Announces Enhanced Enforcement of Trench-Related Safety Standards

Written by: Monica Munin, Esq.

The United States Department of Labor announced enhanced enforcement initiatives intended to address a sharp rise in trench-related fatalities on July 16, 2022. In the announcement, available here: Alarming rise in trench-related fatalities spurs US Department of Labor to announce enhanced nationwide enforcement, additional oversight | Occupational Safety and Health Administration (osha.gov), the United States Occupational Safety & Health Administration (“OSHA”) indicated that the agency is considering referring cases for criminal prosecution as part of a “crackdown” on trenching and evacuation violations. The agency noted that “enforcement staff will consider every available tool at the agency’s disposal.”

Twenty-two (22) individuals employed in trenching and excavation work met their demise during the first six months of 2022, more than the 15 deaths recorded for all of 2022. Jessica E. Martinez, co-executive director for the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health commented on the enhanced enforcement initiative, stating “there is no reason—ever—for a worker to die unprotected in a trench collapse…workers have been building trenches for literally thousands of years. We know how to do it safely: Slope the trench at a safe angle, shore it up, or shield workers with appropriate safety equipment.” Assistant Secretary for Occupational Safety and Health, Doug Parker, added “The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is calling on employers engaged in trenching and excavation activities to act immediately to ensure that required protections are fully in place every single time their employees step down into or work near a trench…In a matter of seconds, workers can be crushed and buried under thousands of pounds of soil and rocks in an unsafe trench. The alarming increase in the number of workers needlessly dying and suffering serious injuries in trenching accidents must be stopped.”

Generally, OSHA requires employers to provide workers with a safe workplace. As applied to trenching and excavation, OSHA requires the following specific protections:

  • Daily inspection of the trench by competent persons
  • Cave-in protection measures
  • A safe manner to enter and exit the trench
  • The removal of equipment and material from the edge of the trench
  • Verification each day that the trench is free of standing water and atmospheric hazards
  • A protective system for trenches five feet or deeper
  • A protective system designed by a registered professional engineer for trenches 20 feet or deeper

OSHA has also developed the following “slogan” for trench safety:

  • SLOPE or bench trench walls by cutting back the trench wall at an angle inclined away from excavation.
  • SHORE trench walls by installing aluminum hydraulic or other types of supports to prevent soil movement.
  • SHIELD trench walls by using trench boxes or other types of supports to prevent soil cave-ins.

OSHA takes the position that all trench fatalities are preventable, and the imposition of criminal penalties adds to the number of reasons employers should seek out advice from an attorney familiar with OSHA requirements to avoid such citations. If you have a question regarding compliance with OSHA Safety Standards as it pertains to trenches and excavation, or anything else, please email Monica Munin, Esq. at mmunin@vfnlaw.com for more information.

The Importance of A Guaranty.

Written by: Guy Jeffress

The decision of the Supreme Court of Virginia in Grayson v. Westwood Buildings L.P., 300 Va. 25, 859 S.E.2d 651 (2021) highlights the need to confirm a tenant’s financial ability to pay the rent during the term of a lease and obtain personal guaranties regarding the same.

The facts of the cited case are complex but can be briefly summarized as follows: Landlord obtained judgments for unpaid rent against tenants. Landlord, upon finding that the tenants and their principals had engaged in a number of transactions that left the tenant entities all but insolvent, filed suit against both tenants and other parties claiming, in part, that the defendants engaged in a series of fraudulent conveyances and sham transactions designed to avoid the judgments. The trial court found in favor of landlord making each of the remaining defendants jointly and severally liable for unpaid rent, awarding the landlord attorney fees, and imposing sanctions. On appeal, however, the Supreme Court of Virginia reversed the trial court, vacated the judgments, and entered the opinion as final judgment. The court noted that the “badges of fraud” relied upon by the trial court to support its findings “did not apply here.” The opinion also noted that the landlord failed to perfect landlord’s security interest in tenant’s inventory and other assets (as landlord was permitted under the terms and conditions of the lease) and did not obtain a signed personal guaranty from principals of the tenants.

The purpose of this article is not to undertake a deep dive in the law of fraudulent conveyances but to illustrate some basic strategies a landlord could use to avoid an outcome similar to that in the above-referenced case.

First, as regards landlord lien rights we have noticed that many landlords are quick to negotiate their lien rights away. The lien right is a powerful remedy to landlord. If a tenant objects because the rights of a lender or lessor of equipment are primary, offer to subordinate landlord’s lien rights to that of the primary lien holder until such time as the primary lien is satisfied or extinguished. It is better to be in a subordinated position than to waive the lien rights altogether.

Second, obtain personal guaranties from tenant principals and their spouses. Under Virginia law guaranty agreements must be independent agreements that are supported by separate consideration. The terms and conditions of a guaranty should also include certain waivers including a waiver of the application of certain Virginia statutes. The absence of said waivers could delay or jeopardize a landlord’s recourse against the named guarantor.

Third, when vetting a tenant, a landlord should undertake sufficient due diligence to accurately determine the tenant’s management structure and its credit worthiness. Additionally, the landlord should try to keep tabs on a tenant’s financial condition throughout the term of the lease by including language in the lease that allows the landlord to request, from time to time, financial disclosures from a tenant which are (preferably) audited or certified as true and correct by a principal of the tenant.

Fourth, we advise letting one of our lease attorneys review letters of intent prior to sending them to prospective tenants. Our financing and lease attorneys frequently notice issues in letters of intent that put the landlord on its hind legs before the first draft of the lease is even circulated.

Fifth, do not negotiate against yourself and offer concessions the tenant does not ask for, and do not give into the frequent lament of tenant brokers, “it’s not market” without substantial and verifiable data to back it up.

Recent changes in the economy and lender practices are prompting building owners to review their lease forms. If you are feeling challenged by current circumstances or have not reviewed your lease forms in the last few years consider having the lease attorneys at Vanderpool, Frostick & Nishanian, P.C., review your lease and lease-related documents.

Call one of the attorneys at Vanderpool, Frostick & Nishanian, P.C., or email and let us see if we can assist you.

DON’T BE FOOLED!: HOW TO BE A WISE CLIENT FOR AN IMMIGRATION CONSULTATION

Written By Lisa Shea, Esq.

These days, there are many immigration lawyers and notarios promising immigrants that they will have an opportunity to get a green card without even thoroughly analyzing the facts of their case.  They will simply say, “Yeah, no problem, I can get you a green card.” 

Although it is wonderful to hear that you could qualify for a green card, if you actually qualify for it, it is not wonderful if someone tells you they can get you a green card just to take your money and for you to later learn that you don’t qualify. 

Immigration law is extremely complex and changes all the time.  In order for a lawyer to assess what kind of case you have, and the relief you could qualify for, a thorough consultation is needed.  Many lawyers will give you a free 10 or 20-minute consultation, but that is not enough time for you to ask questions, give the lawyer enough facts about your case, or receive a thorough analysis of your situation before you spend thousands of dollars and risk your entire immigration case. 

Making a decision about your immigration case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.  It could dictate whether you are allowed to stay in the United States; whether you will be granted legal status; and whether you spend thousands of dollars for the good of your case or are just wasting your money. 

WATCH FOR FRAUD:

Recently, I spoke with a client that had one of these free consults from a well-known social media attorney.  When the client called the lawyer, he was directed to a foreign-qualified lawyer who did not know American law well.  The person my client spoke with did not ask important questions that would have dramatically changed the legal advice from the client qualifying to do a waiver and consular processing to being permanently barred from immigration relief.  Even without all the needed information, he announced that my client qualified and that the cost would be several thousand dollars.  It was when my client sought a second opinion that he discovered that it was not so straightforward; his case might have some inadmissibility grounds that are more complicated than the lawyer explained to him, such as criminal records, smuggling, and multiple re-entries.

Another gimmick lawyers use is to advertise that they have an office in the city where you live but they really don’t.  They pay for advertising to make it look like they are local, but they are actually in another city or even state.  And, while it is not essential that your lawyer be local if that is what you are looking for, you have the right to know whether you will be able to have in-person contact with your lawyer. In other words, a lawyer should be clear on their website where they are located.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A CONSULTATION TO FIND A QUALITY LAWYER:

If you are looking for quality legal advice, you should expect to pay a reasonable fee for a consultation.  Ask friends and family for a referral and check out the background of the lawyer. For example, you should find out if there are any bar complaints against the lawyer.  During a paid consultation, the lawyer should thoroughly screen your immigration background and that of any family members who could impact your own immigration status.  Take any immigration and criminal documents you have to the consultation.  If you or your family member(s) have an A-number or alien number, make sure you take it with you. Any options for relief should be explained and you should be given an opportunity to ask questions about your future case.  Ask the lawyer if he/she has experience in the kind of case you have and what the costs will be.  Make sure your lawyer provides you with a written engagement agreement explaining the case and the fees.  Your lawyer may need to do a freedom of information act (FOIA) request to get further information about your case before making a final plan of action.

Upon hiring the lawyer, stay in contact with him/her to ensure that you are meeting important deadlines and providing the information needed to do the case.  Working with a lawyer on your immigration case is a team effort.  The lawyer has obligations, and so do you.  Your lawyer needs to use his/her best legal expertise to put together a thorough and timely case based on current law and vigorously advocate for your interests.  You have an obligation to pay your lawyer and provide credible information, evidence, be on time for appointments, and keep the lawyer updated on important developments such as changes of address and phone number.

With a positive outlook and cooperation between you and your lawyer, you should have a successful experience.  Although outcomes are not guaranteed, many cases can be won with diligent efforts.

New ID Card For Immigrants at Border?

Written By Lisa Shea, Esq.

The Biden Administration has announced that it is working on a new ID card for immigrants at the border with Mexico.  This card would carry information allowing immigration officials to access information about a person’s case files and would be a travel card as well.  It would have the immigrant’s name, nationality, photo, and QR code and would allow the immigrant to log into a website to access ICE reporting requirements, court hearings, and case updates. 

If the pilot program is successful, it may be expanded to apply to other immigrants.  While there are privacy concerns, it will be more convenient than current technologies, including GPS bracelets and phone check-ins.  Given that there are 1.6 million pending immigration cases and a long wait for court dates, this new technology may keep immigrants in touch with their cases ensuring better due process for the individual and greater efficiency for the system, and less in abstentia deportation orders.

2022 Beat the Odds Awards       

The Prince William County Bar Foundation, in collaboration with the Prince William County Bar Association, was proud to host this year’s Beat the Odds Celebration and Awards Banquet!  The event was held on June 23rd at the beautiful Old Hickory Golf Club in Woodbridge.  Nearly two hundred guests gathered to celebrate 12 remarkable graduating seniors and 2 rising seniors. 

We presented each of the graduating seniors with a $2,000 Beat the Odds scholarship to help them further their education, be it in community college, four-year college, technical and vocational school, apprenticeships, internships, and more.  We presented both rising seniors with Phoenix Awards, consisting of a fully loaded laptop computer to further their studies during their senior year.  Each Beat the Odds and Phoenix Award winner receives a commemorative plaque and are also paired with a volunteer attorney mentor from the local bar to help guide them in their education.

 Prince William County Bar Foundation President Bradley Marshall, who acted as master of ceremonies for the event, said “these kids have overcome tremendous obstacles such as abuse and neglect, delinquency, truancy, foster care, substance abuse, and mental illness, but have persevered to truly ‘beat the odds’ and have bright futures ahead of them.”

This years Beat the Odds winners have big plans for the future.  For example, Alyssa graduated with a 4.25 GPA and will be attending Lynchburg University in the fall.  Madelyn has overcome tremendous adversity but reminded the crowd that past experiences do not define someone; she will be attending Virginia Commonwealth University later this year.  Mariah had a child at a young age, but she used it to motivate her to be a better student; she will attend Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) with plans to transfer to Howard University. Sisters Cynthia, Karen, and Yaharia have faced enormous obstacles, but all three plan to attend NOVA in the fall and transfer to other colleges.  Angela, who immigrated from Cameroon, Africa, worked hard to assimilate and will be attending Yale University and plans to go on to medical school.  Antwoine, who also won a Phoenix Award in 2021, received a Beat the Odds scholarship this year and will attend Old Dominion University.

These scholarships and awards provide an opportunity for these remarkable young people to overcome their circumstances and maximize their future potential.  These opportunities simply would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors.  Thank you to the law firm of Blankingship & Keith, the law firm of Compton & Duling, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #43, the Gratitude Ladies Giving Group, Kevin and Barbara Hutto, the Knights of Columbus John Paul I Council, Philip and Laura Stark, the Carluzzo Foundation, Inc., the law firm of Vanderpool, Frostick, and Nishanian, and our biggest sponsor, who provided not one but five scholarships this year, Wind River Chimes.  We cannot think our community partners enough for their support. 

The Bar Foundation would also like to thank the PWC Police Department and Sheriff’s Department for providing a joint honor guard for the event, to the Old Bridge Chamber Orchestra for providing the evening’s music, Sorin Pasarin with Little Film Studio for providing photography services, Deem Printing for the printed programs, the wonderful staff at Old Hickory Gold Club for their hospitality, and last but certainly not least, Virginia Governor Glen Youngkin for providing pre-recorded remarks to this year’s winners. 

Thank you to all of our donors, volunteers, and guests for attending, and congratulations to these 14 remarkable young people on their tremendous achievements and their very bright futures!

Bye-Bye Migrant Protection Protocols

Written By Lisa Shea, Esq.

On June 30, 2022, the Supreme Court handed down a major victory for due process in Biden v. Texas, 597 U.S. ___ (2022)a decision permitting the Biden administration to terminate Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy (Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP)), which the administration attempted to do June 1, 2021, but was sued.  The MPP program permitted U.S. Border Patrol to keep in Mexico and send back to Mexico, those immigrants with pending immigration court hearings in the United States, instead of allowing them to wait in the United States.  While there is an issue with thousands of people crossing the border, this program did not meet our country’s stringent due process requirements or our international obligations to protect those seeking asylum while they are in the process of seeking asylum, and instead sent thousands back into dangerous living conditions that sparked even more illegal entries into the United States.  Further, persons awaiting US court proceedings in Mexico did not have adequate means to work with a United States attorney to prepare their case and had a much higher likelihood of being summarily deported rather than their cases heard in a prepared and meaningful way.  Perhaps now we can see a return to justice and family unification. If you know someone at the border who needs assistance, please feel free to schedule a consultation with our firm, we have over 30 years of experience in removal defense, asylum, and working with Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

PWSHRM-Legal Affairs Update!

Written By Kristina Keech Spitler, Esq.

Supreme Court Rules Employers Who Fail to Act on Mandatory Arbitration Agreement May Lose Their Ability to Compel Arbitration

A unanimous Supreme Court decided that an employee challenging an employment agreement requiring arbitration to resolve employment disputes did not need to show she had been prejudiced or harmed by her employer’s 8-month delay in attempting to compel arbitration. The case, Morgan v. Sundance, involves an hourly non-exempt employee at a Taco Bell franchise in Iowa who had signed an agreement requiring all employment disputes to be resolved using arbitration.  The employee had filed a nationwide collective action suit claiming that the franchise had violated the Fair Labor Standards Act overtime pay requirements.

The franchise’s parent company had initially responded to the employee’s complaint as if there had been no arbitration agreement in place, filing a motion to dismiss that was eventually denied.  Eight months after Morgan filed her complaint, Sundancemoved to compel arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act. The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals initially held that Morgan needed to show she had been prejudiced or harmed by Sundance’s delay in order for the Company to have waived its right to compel arbitration. However, the Supreme Court rejected that holding. Justice Elena Kagan noted in her opinion that “The Federal Arbitration Act makes clear that courts are not to create arbitration-specific procedural rules…courts need not necessarily find that someone was prejudiced to find that a party waived its right to compel arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act. The holding upheld the enforceability of arbitration agreements generally and remanded the case back to the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals to determine whether or not “the employer knowingly relinquished its right to arbitrate by acting inconsistently with that right.”  The Court indicated that the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals could either resolve the question posed or decide that a different procedural framework is appropriate. “This holding is limited to stopping courts from making up a new procedural rule based solely on the Federal Arbitration Act’s ‘policy favoring arbitration.’”

Virginia Overtime Amendments Take Effect July 1, 2022

Effective July 1, 2022, the existing provisions of the Virginia Overtime Wage Act (VOWA) are repealed and replaced with a provision that any employer that violates the overtime pay requirements under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is liable to its employees for remedies and other relief available under the FLSA. The amendment will also require derivative air carriers to pay their employees overtime at a rate of not less than one and one-half times the employee’s regular rate of pay for any hours worked in excess of 40 hours in any one workweek.

Virginia Requires Seizure First Aid Poster as of July 1, 2022

Effective July 1, 2022, employers of 25 or more employees in the Commonwealth must physically post information on seizure first aid in the workplace in a place visible to employees. The Department of Labor and Industry will disseminate the information electronically and by other yet-to-be-determined means. The information will be fully consistent with information and guidelines developed by the Epilepsy Foundation of America and any of its successor organizations.

The text of the bill is available at VA HB1178 | 2022 | Regular Session | LegiScan
