RESOLUTION

A RESOLUTION REFERRING TO THE PLANNING COMMISSION A ZONING ORDINANCE TEXT AMENDMENT TO SECTION 3-315 TO ALLOW AN ABATTOIR; A ZONING MAP AMENDMENT FOR THE PORTION OF THE PROPERTY REFERENCED AS PIN #7808-52-4186, AND A WAIVER OF FEES FOR AN ASSOCIATED SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION

WHEREAS, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals previously reviewed and approved a series of applications intended to allow the construction and operation of an abattoir with associated retail sales on certain property located at 5177 Ritchie Road; and

WHEREAS, the parcel on which the use was proposed and approved has zoning split between RA/Rural Agriculture and I-1/Industrial, with proffers; and

WHEREAS, it was determined that the line between the two zoning districts on the parcel is shown incorrectly on the County’s zoning maps and therefore a portion of the proposed abattoir is actually located on property zoned RA; and

WHEREAS, site constraints related to siting the drainfield require the use to occupy more than 1 acre of land; and

WHEREAS, the applicants for the abattoir previously paid County filing fees for a special permit and rezoning relying on the incorrect zoning map; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 21st day of April 2003, That the proposed ordinance amending Section 3-315 to add an abattoir with accessory retail sales in the I-1/Industrial zoning district following special exception approval by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors and obtaining an approved site plan be, and is hereby, referred to the Fauquier County Planning Commission for appropriate consideration and action; and, be it

RESOLVED FURTHER, That the proposed zoning map amendment shifting the zoning line between the RA/Rural Agriculture and I-1/Industrial on the property located at 5177 Ritchie Road so that the portion of the parcel previously considered and approved for the abattoir use is zoned I-1/Industrial; and, be it

RESOLVED FINALLY, That the usual filing fees associated with Zoning Ordinance text amendments, amendments to the Zoning Map and special exceptions be, and are hereby, waived.
