Management Analysis

Topic: A RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS TO EXECUTE A LEASE AGREEMENT WITH THE BIRMINGHAM GREEN ADULT CARE RESIDENCE

Topic Description:

Birmingham Green is a public facility which is owned by five jurisdictions: the Counties of Fauquier, Fairfax, Prince William and Loudoun, and the City of Alexandria.  Their respective departments of Social Services make referrals to Birmingham Green.  Currently, Fauquier County has several citizens in residence at Birmingham Green. 

The existing assisted living facility was constructed in 1926, and was enlarged in the 1940ís and 1950ís. The current facility suffers serious overcrowding and physical deficiencies, as well as, accessibility inadequacies.  The facility has never undergone a complete retrofitting since opening or expanding its capacity and the result is a facility that is physically and functionally obsolete.   

In order for Birmingham Green to seek funding through HUD Section 202 and Section 811 programs for the purpose of replacing the existing 75-year old facility, the land on which the facility will be built must be leased to them.  A resolution in support of Birmingham Green's application for the HUD funds was adopted at the March 18, 2002 Board of Supervisors meeting.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Hold a public hearing on the proposed lease of land to the Birmingham Green Adult Care Residence, and consider adopting  the attached resolution authorizing the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors to execute such lease.
