The Board of Supervisors directed the Citizen Planning Committee to provide recommended refinements and additions to the New Baltimore Service District (NBSD) Plan that better reflect the needs of a changing land use and transportation environment. The principal effort will be placed on transportation, with recommendations focused on: (1) secondary and primary road network improvements that provide improved access and traffic distribution; (2) complete street cross-sections that include building setback expectations, sidewalks, bikeways, and multi-purpose trails which carefully link residential neighborhoods more effectively with parks, schools and business areas within the community; (3) introduction of context sensitive street design standards compatible with the small town/neighborhood expectations for the service district; and (4) short-term road improvement priorities.
Much has changed since the last amendment to the Service District Plan occurred on October 8, 2009 with the: (1) traffic calming studies on U.S. 15-29 from the Prince William County line to Route 605; (2) traffic volumes and patterns; (3) planned and funded public street improvements in the Vint Hill environs; (4) enacted Virginia Department of Transportation regulations regarding street acceptance and connectivity; (5) Buckland Races Battlefield; (6) expansion of the Fauquier County Water & Sanitation Authority’s Vint Hill Wastewater Treatment Plant; and (7) state implementation of alternative individual septic systems;
The work of the New Baltimore Citizen Planning Committee has been suspended. A community-wide planning effort is currently underway to address the concerns of the broader New Baltimore Community.
