A Resolution to Delegate to the Transportation Committee the Authority to Request that the Virginia Department of Transportation Install Warning Signs

Topic Description:

The Transportation Committee receives numerous requests for the installation of signs to alert motorists of activities or hazards in a particular area, including “Watch for Children”, animal crossings, and agricultural warning signs.  The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) requires that the Board of Supervisors or its designee forward a resolution approving each warning sign request, so VDOT may accommodate these requests.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Transportation Committee Recommendation:

On November 30, 2005, the County’s Transportation Committee recommended that the Board of Supervisors delegate the authority to the Transportation Committee to recommend that VDOT install warning signs as the Committee deems appropriate.


Financial Impact Analysis:

VDOT will fund the sign installations.
