No action is
necessary, unless a majority of the Board wishes to consider
this preliminary subdivision application. On February 15,
2007, the Planning Commission voted unanimously to approve
the Linden Hill Estates Preliminary Plat subject to the
Plat shall be in general conformance with the Preliminary
Subdivision Plat "Linden Hill Estates” dated March 16, 2006,
revised November 20, 2006, signed by James R. Ashley on
November 30, 2006.
A typical section of the access road showing any
proposed drainage shall be provided at the time of Final
Construction Plan review for the sole purpose of evaluating
MS-19 adequate channel compliance.
County recommends that no below grade basements be
constructed on soils with high water table due to
wetness unless the foundation drainage system of the
structure is designed by a Licensed Professional
Engineer to assure a dry basement and preclude
recirculation of pumped or collected water. Unless in
the opinion of the County Engineer, the topography of
the lot in relation to the overlot grading plan
precludes grading the site to drain the basement to
daylight without assistance from mechanical means. All
discharged water (mechanical or gravity) must be
conveyed to the subdivision stormwater collection system
and discharged through the stormwater management
facilities. Drainage easements where necessary shall be
placed on the Final Plat. A note shall be placed on the
Final Plat stating “Basements are not recommended in
mapping units 15B, 16B, 181B, 416B, and 116C. Basements
in these mapping units are subject to flooding due to
high seasonal water tables. Sump systems may run
continuously, leading to possible premature pump
culverts, including driveway culverts, shall be designed
to pass the 10-year storm.
Final Construction Plans shall include a sight distance
profile. The plans shall also show the right-of-way line
in front of the adjacent property having PIN
6000-95-4357-000. If the line of sight extends outside
the right-of-way onto this adjacent parcel, a sight
distance easement shall be obtained from the adjacent
A Virginia Certified
Professional Soil Scientist (CPSS) (needs to adjust
the Type I Soil Map soil lines) or (needs to
adjust the preliminary soil map with revisions) onto
the Final Construction Plan. This needs to be done in
the field and checked for any additional soils
information to be added to the Final Construction Plan.
signature block shall be placed on this plat for the
CPSS to sign which states:
Preliminary Soils Information Provided by the
Fauquier County Soil Scientist
Office via a Type I Soil
Map (1"=400') Dated _________________.
This Virginia Certified Professional Soil Scientist has
field reviewed and adjusted the
information onto the final plat (1"=___') and certifies
that this is the
Best Available Soils Information to
Date for Lots 1-____.
Va. Certified Professional Soil
Interpretive information from the Type I soil report for
each mapping unit shown on the above Final Construction
Plan shall be placed on the same sheet as the soil map.
Also a Symbols Legend shall be placed on the Final
Construction Plan to identify spot symbols.
This final soil map shall be filed in the Building
Office to be used exclusively for obtaining soils
information for this proposed subdivision.
Two (2) copies of this final soil map with CPSS
signature need to be submitted to the Soil Scientist
Office before Final Plat approval is made
The final signature sets shall contain original CPSS
The type of primary and reserve drainfield area shall be
stated for each lot.
The following statement shall be placed on the same
sheet as the final soil map:
Due to landscape position (drainage ways) and high
seasonal water tables the following statement needs to be
placed on the Final Construction Plan to be placed in the
front office of Community Development: "The County
recommends that no below grade basements be constructed on
soil mapping units 15B, 16B, 116C, 416C and 416D due to
wetness unless the foundation drainage system of the
structure is designed by a Virginia Licensed Professional
Engineer. The foundation drain lines should be daylighted
for gravity flow on all structures."
The following statement shall be included on final
soils map and E & S plans:
“PRIOR TO FINAL CONSTRUCTION PLAN APPROVAL, IT SHALL BE
AGREED THAT ALL DRAINFIELD AREAS ARE TO BE SURROUNDED
SAFETY FENCING AND NO CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC SHALL CROSS
NOR SHALL LAND DISTURBANCE OCCUR IN THESE AREAS. THE
FENCING OF THESE AREAS IS TO BE VERIFIED BY COUNTY
BEFORE THE ISSUANCE OF THE LAND DISTURBING PERMIT.”
Soil mapping units 31C, 131D, 140D, 220E, and 340D
are usually shallow to bedrock. The following statement
needs to be placed on the Final Construction Pan: “The
County recommends that before road or home construction
begins in soil mapping units 31C, 131D, 140D, 220E, and
340D, a site specific evaluation be conducted so that
shallow to bedrock areas are identified. These areas may
require blasting if deep cuts or excavation is done.”
Areas of steep slopes should be avoided at all cost
due to high erosion hazard. Proper erosion and sedimentation
practices need to be installed before construction begins.
Soil mapping units 131D, 140D, 220E, 340D, and 416D should
be left in their natural state.
