TO:                  Fauquier County Board of Supervisors 

FROM:           Fauquier County Planning Commission 

SUBJECT:       Planning Commission’s Recommended CIP for FY 2003-2007 

DATE:            February 28, 2002


1.       Revised CIP FY 2003-2007 Spreadsheet.  Enclosed is the revised CIP spreadsheet, which identifies the Planning Commission’s recommended revisions.  The following lists the key Planning Commission refinements: 

a.       Construction Debt: 

1.       Radio System Approved:  revised from $10,000,000 to $6,900,000; 

2.       New Middle School:  revised funding from FY 2003-2004, and consolidated construction funding to FY 2003 with a total of $10,824,000 and a footnote indicating that $6,410,000 was approved and borrowed in FY 2002. 

3.       Warrenton and Taylor Middle School Expansions:  revision reflects the construction of the new middle school first, with the expansions funding of these two existing middle schools to occur in FY 2005.  Again, there is a footnote indicating that $4,300,000 was approved in FY 2002, with a total debt service of $8,527,000 to begin in FY 2006. 

4.      New High School: The Planning Commission supports the CIP Committee’s recommendation regarding the high school.  Fiscal constraints prevent funding at this time by FY 2007 for the $43.7 million facility.  The Planning Commission strongly recommends that the Board of Supervisors consider establishing an annual appropriation to a cash reserve dedicated to the construction of the high school to mitigate the fiscal impact when construction begins. The Planning Commission also recommends a thorough programmatic review of high school space needs to include, for example, distance learning, possible expansion of existing high schools over time, and building smaller high school facilities, as needs increase, with a view to affordability.   

b.      Major Systems Replacement:  The Fauquier County High School lockers have been moved from FY 2004-2005 to FY 2003-2004. 

c.       Liberty High School Athletic Lights (FY 2003).  The Planning Commission recommends that this project’s lighting system be subject to the amended Zoning Ordinance requirements for outdoor recreational lighting, if adopted. 

2.      Recommendations:   

a.       The Planning Commission Recommended CIP for FY 2003-2007 and the Capital Budget for FY 2003 included herein be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors with a recommendation that it be approved as presented, including the refinements identified in 1.a-c.  

b.      The Planning Commission strongly recommends that the Board of Supervisors consider establishing an annual appropriation to a cash reserve dedicated to the construction of the high school to mitigate the fiscal impact when construction begins. The Planning Commission also recommends a thorough programmatic review of high school space needs to include, for example, distance learning, possible expansion of existing high schools over time, and building smaller high school facilities, as needs increase, with a view to affordability.   

c.       In reference to the Purchase of Development Rights Program (PDR), it is recommended that the Board of Supervisors fund annually $150,000 through roll back taxes from properties being transferred out of the land use program.  That recommended amount could also be supplemented by grants and other contribution sources.  Those funds then should be placed in a CIP Capital Account for the Fauquier County Purchase of Development Rights Program.
