A RESOLUTION TO INITIATE CONSIDERATION OF AN AMENDMENT TO THE ZONING ORDINANCE TO PERMIT BOUNDARY LINE ADJUSTMENTS BETWEEN PARCELS ZONED RURAL AGRICULTURE OR RURAL CONSERVATION WITHOUT A REDUCTION IN DENSITY
WHEREAS, boundary line adjustments and consolidations of parcels in the Rural Agricultural and Rural Conservation Zones currently reduce the density of the parcel that is reduced in size, but do not afford a similar increase in the density of the parcel that is increased in size; and
WHEREAS, permitting boundary line adjustments and parcel consolidations without an overall reduction in density may provide opportunities for improved development of contiguous parcels and facilitate clustering of development; and
WHEREAS, good zoning practice and the public convenience warrant consideration of an amendment that would permit boundary line adjustments and lot consolidations without a reduction in density; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED by the Fauquier County Board of
Supervisors this 12th day of May 2005, That the proposed amendment to
the Zoning Ordinance be referred to the Planning Commission for its
consideration and recommendations.
