  1. Street lights, as approved by the Purcellville Public Works Department for style, consistency and functionality, should be erected on both sides of the crosswalk just south of the Eastgate, Patrick Henry Drive and Route 287 intersection in order to allow illumination for pedestrian safety when crossing.
  2. Any additional crossings of Route 287 and Colonial Highway in the future are to be lighted for pedestrian safety.
  3. Prior to the construction of student dormitories or housing, a Traffic Impact Analysis will be required prior to site plan approval for new construction. Mitigation may be required if the TIA indicates that the LOS on the impacted roadway as a result of the new construction will be reduced below a LOS of C as required by the Comprehensive Plan.
