WHEREAS, the content of the final document was developed through consensus and received unanimous recommendation from the DSM Committee; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 14th day of May 2009, That an amendment to Chapter 2 of the Design Standards Manual dealing with drainage be, and is hereby, initiated and should be scheduled for public hearing.
