In 2002, the County approved the creation of a 1.67-acre lot
as a family transfer. This lot is located on South River
Road (Route 632) in Bealeton, Lee Magisterial District (PIN
# 7816-25-0124-000). The attached vicinity map shows the
location of this parcel. The lot was conveyed to Mrs.
Eleanor Fraber by her mother, Eleanor Garrett, and the
conveyance included the affidavit requiring that the grantee
not transfer the property to a non-immediate family member
for ten (10) years.
Mrs. Fraber is now requesting that the Board of Supervisors
reduce the 10-year time requirement of Section 2-39.3.A.3 of
the Subdivision Ordinance, so that she will not have to hold
the property for ten (10) years before voluntarily
transferring the property. Section 2-39.14 of the
Subdivision Ordinance states if the Board of Supervisors
finds that an extraordinary hardship is caused by the ten
(10) year restriction, it may reduce the time period to
alleviate the hardship. If approved, Mrs. Fraber would have
held the property for approximately four (4) years.
The applicant has encountered financial hardship due to the
recent death of her husband, and needs to sell the property
in order to alleviate that hardship. Mrs. Fraberís letter
requesting the reduction, along with the specific
justification, and additional financial documents, outlining
her situation in more detail, are available for review under
a separate cover and these personal financial documents are
exempt from release under Virginia Code Section
2.2-3705.A.2, 4 and 5.
