RESOLUTION

 

A RESOLUTION DENYING THE PELHAM VILLAGE APPLICATIONS: CPA03-L-07 COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT, RZ03-L-10 REZONING, SPEX04- LE-001 SPECIAL EXCEPTION FOR A FLOODPLAIN CROSSING

 

WHEREAS, D.C. Diamond Corporation, the applicant, has applied to Fauquier County for a Comprehensive Plan Amendment, a Special Exception and a Rezoning to create a subdivision known as Pelham Village between the Bealeton and Remington Service Districts; and

 

WHEREAS, in the months of August, September, October and November 2003, the Fauquier County Planning Commission held an extended Public Hearing on these applications; and

 

WHEREAS, the Planning Commission reviewed the remanded and unchanged application pursuant to the Board of Supervisorsí request, and maintained its recommendation of denial based on the following reasons:

 

1.      The proposal for a Comprehensive Plan Amendment fails the tests established by the Zoning Ordinance.

 

2.      The Concept Development Plan proposed could not be implemented under the existing Zoning and Stormwater Management Ordinances.  No refinements were made to address the substantive issues raised in the August 26, 2003 staff report, which also identified remedies.

 

3.      The proposal is not consistent with the Bealeton and Remington Comprehensive Plans.

 

4.      The proposal would seriously jeopardize realization of the Bealeton and Remington Comprehensive Plans, most notably the Route 17 / Route 29 Spur Road and Bealeton Town Center, if it were constructed; and

 

WHEREAS, on December 15, 2003, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing and, on March 15, 2004, reconsidered the application, and concurred with the judgment of the Planning Commission; now, therefore, be it

 

RESOLVED by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 15th day of March 2004, That the Pelham Village Comprehensive Plan Amendment (CPA03-L-07) be, and is hereby, denied; and be it

 

RESOLVED FURTHER, That the Pelham Village Rezoning (RZ03-L-10) request be, and is hereby, denied; and, be it

 

RESOLVED FINALLY, That the Pelham Village Flood Plain Crossing and Land Disturbance Special Exception (SPEX04-LE-001) be, and is hereby, denied.
