            WHEREAS, the Fauquier County Transportation Committee studied the future alignment of Route 215 (Vint Hill Road) at its meetings from June 2008 through March 2009 and duly considered traffic, engineering, environmental and historic studies and implications; and

WHEREAS, the Transportation Committee at its meeting on March 25, 2009, recommended a short-term refinement to the New Baltimore Service District Transportation Plan (NBSDTP) and a longer term recommended action; and

WHEREAS, the short-term Transportation Committee recommendation proposed that Route 215 remain on its current alignment and the “alignment flexibility area” be removed from the NBSDTP; and

RESOLVED, by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 9th day of April 2009, That the New Baltimore Service District Transportation Plan revision termed as elimination of the Route 215 Alignment/Interchange Flexibility Area and amendments of associated descriptive text be, and is hereby, initiated and referred immediately to the Planning Commission for public hearing and recommendation; and, be it

RESOLVED FURTHER, That the New Baltimore Service District’s Citizen Planning Committee be reconvened and appointed for the primary purpose of reviewing the Transportation Committee’s broader recommendations, contained in its March 25, 2009 report; and, be it
