A Resolution Initiating a Zoning Ordinance Text Amendment to Sections 13-304 and 13-402 to Reflect the Reduction of Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) Members from Seven to Five


Topic Description:

At the February 18, 2010 meeting of the Board of Supervisors, the Board approved a Zoning Ordinance Text Amendment to reduce the number of members appointed by the Fauquier County Circuit Court to the Fauquier County BZA, from seven to five. While that particular amendment made changes to Article 14, Boards, Commissions and Committees, which authorizes the creation the of BZA, there are also two provisions found in Article 13, Administration, Amendments, Violations and Penalties, that relate to BZA membership and the necessary quorum needed to make decisions. Therefore, the purpose of this proposed text amendment is to change the related provisions found in Sections13-304.2 and 13-402.3 to reflect the approved reduction of BZA membership.
