Stribling’s Mill Estates:  Preliminary Plat PPLT08-CR-001 and Waiver WVRP08-CR-001 – Cedar Run District


Topic Description:

The applicant is seeking Preliminary Plat approval to divide one parcel of approximately 16.7 acres into four (4) lots, ranging in size from + 2.3 acres to + 6.95 acres. Each lot will be served by well and drainfield.

The applicant has also requested that Subdivision Ordinance Section 10-6 be waived, eliminating the requirement for separate construction drawings. This action has not been the standard practice of the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors; however, in some instances a modification of the Final Construction Plan may be warranted. In this case, the Preliminary Plat/Final Construction Plan submitted to our office includes all necessary items as required by both plan categories. A copy of the Preliminary Plat/Final Construction Plan is included as Attachment 1. A copy of the Applicant’s Statement of Justification related to the Waiver Request is included as Attachment 2  


Location,  Zoning and Current Land Use:

The ±16.7 acres are zoned Rural Residential (RR-2).  Adjacent properties in all directions are also zoned Rural Residential (RR-2). The property is located west of the intersection of Old Mill Road (Route 602) and Razor Hill Road (Route 637),  in the Cedar Run District. 


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

No action is necessary, unless a majority of the Board wishes to consider this preliminary subdivision application. On February 28, 2008, the Planning Commission voted unanimously to approve the Stribling’s Mill Estates Preliminary Plat and Waiver of Subdivision Ordinance Section 10-6 subject to the following conditions:

  1. The Final Plat shall be in general conformance with the Preliminary Plan/Final Construction Plan titled "Stribling’s Mill Estates” dated June 22, 2007, last revised December 14, 2007, signed by James R. Ashley on February 11, 2008.

  2. A note shall be added to the Final Plat which states, “Fauquier County does not certify as to the relative integrity of the existing dam and associated pond structures and assumes no liability should the existing pond embankment or outfall structure fail in any way, shape or form. 
  3. The following language shall be added to the Final Plat and Deed of Subdivision: “The owners of Lots 3, 4 and the future administrative lot comprise the physical ownership interest of the existing pond. They collectively and equally share all financial and civil liability associated with the existing pond and shall hold Fauquier County harmless of any event occurring therein or within or around the existing pond.”
  4. Language shall be added to the Deed of Subdivision regarding the upkeep of the area located within the Pond Maintenance Easement.
