REQUEST #98-CR-13, CALVIN L. RITCHIE PROPERTY, CEDAR RUN
applicant is seeking approval to rezone approximately two acres of
a 96-acre parcel from Industrial Park (I-1) to General Industrial
(I-2) for the purpose of locating a slaughterhouse.
The Zoning Administrator has determined that a
slaughterhouse would fall under the category of contractor’s
offices, shops and material storage yards, with all equipment and
material contained entirely within a building or completely
screened from view. This
use is permitted by-right in the
I-2 Zoning District. The
applicant should be aware that if this rezoning is approved, the
use would require a major site plan, at which time the approval of
agencies, such as the Virginia Department of Transportation and
the Health Department, will be required.
subject two (2) acres is located on the south side of Ritchie Road
(Route 644), just east of its intersection with Marsh Road (U.S.
Route 17). Nearby industrial/commercial uses include Payne’s Parking
and Design, a pavilion and an area for Class C outdoor events and
activities on the Ritchie property and Sevinsky Enterprises (Fauquier
should be noted that this application was originally filed in 1998
to rezone 14.95 acres to expand the adjacent Payne’s Parking.
The applicant requested on February 16, 1999 that the Board
of Supervisors place the application on hold.
On February 26, 2002, the applicant reactivated the
application and reduced the requested acreage to two acres.
With the reactivation, the applicant also changed the
proposed use to a slaughterhouse.
Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:
a public hearing and take action.
An ordinance for approval is attached for consideration.
the Board of Supervisors’ information, the Planning Commission
held a public hearing on this request on January 28, 1999.
The Planning Commission recommended approval of the
request, subject to the understanding that the applicant would
proffer out all other uses permitted in the I-2 zoning district,
with the exception of the proposed use.
It should be noted that the applicant has not submitted any
proffers to the County to date. Staff would recommend that the Board of Supervisors still
consider this recommendation.
Such a proffer would minimize the potential impacts of
other uses permitted in the I-2 zoning district that may not be as
compatible with the surrounding area as the use proposed by the
Under Zoning Ordinance provisions, the Board of
Supervisors is not required to take action on this rezoning
request on the night of the public hearing.
