The County of Fauquier and the Towns of Remington, The Plains and Warrenton have, within their respective ordinances, adopted provisions related to the voluntary proffering of cash and the dedication of real property where the need for such proffers arise for the rezoning request.  The County of Fauquier is desirous of entering into agreements with the Towns of Remington, The Plains and Warrenton evidencing the Towns’ intent to request proffers of cash and real property from applicants for rezoning to help defray the capital costs of public educational facilities serving, or planned to serve, the area for which the rezoning is requested.
