A Resolution to Initiate a Rezoning Application for the Rodgers Family Limited Partnership Property Adjoining the Central Sports Complex Property


Topic Description:

The County has entered into a three-party agreement with the Rodgers Family Limited Partnership and the Fauquier County Fair Board to acquire approximately 4.5 acres of the Rodgers property for the Central Sports Complex and to lease approximately 6 acres of the sports complex property to the Fair Board for parking and other fair-related purposes.  As part of the agreement, the County agreed to initiate a rezoning request for the remaining portion of the Rodgers property to an industrial/employment classification, with proffers related to buffering and limitations on uses allowed, among others. The proposed rezoning application would need to be designed to be consistent with the Warrenton Service District Plan.   


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.



Approximately five years ago, the Board of Supervisors acquired 70 acres of a larger 130 acre tract, with frontage along Meetze Road and Old Auburn Road, from the Rodgers Family Limited Partnership for the development of a sporting and recreational complex to serve the citizens in the central portion of Fauquier County.  The property adjoins the Fauquier County Fairgrounds.  Subsequently, the Fauquier County Fair Board sought to lease a portion of the new Central Sports Complex property for parking and other fair-related activities.  In order to accommodate the needs of the Fairgrounds and to provide for the recreational needs of the community, additional acreage is needed for the park to offset the land leased to the Fair Board.  The attached exhibit shows the relationship of the various properties and highlights the land to be acquired (noted BLA area), the land to be leased to the Fair Board and the lands for the proposed rezoning.   In February 2007, the Board of Supervisors authorized the execution of an agreement to acquire additional property from the Rodgers property adjoining the Central Sports Complex and to lease property to the Fair Board.   A copy of this agreement is attached.
