WHEREAS, Michael and Heather Hawkins, owners of the property identified by PIN  7848-26-6800-000, have requested a Category 29 Special Exception to waive the public street requirements for access to this property; and

WHEREAS, if approved, this Special Exception would provide the required road frontage and access for up to five (5) lots; and

WHEREAS, there are two parcels accessing this private street, an existing administrative subdivision, and the parent parcel where the new subdivision is proposed; and

            WHEREAS, on November 30, 2006, the Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommend denial of the Special Exception SPEX07-CR-005 to the Board of Supervisors for the following reasons:

  1. The proposal fails to satisfy the general and specific standards for the proposed use established by the Fauquier County Zoning Ordinance.
  2. The proposal failed to demonstrate that there were no other alternatives available, nor did it show that any other options were pursued and then eliminated due to cost, location, or other reason.

; and

WHEREAS, on January 11, 2007, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors held a Public Hearing and considered oral and written testimony and concurred with the judgment of the Planning Commission; now, therefore, be it

            RESOLVED by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 11th day of January 2007, That Special Exception SPEX07-CR-005, Michael and Heather Hawkins, owners/applicants, be, and is hereby, denied.
