Warrenton-Fauquier Airport Update

Topic Description:

At the Board of Supervisorsí meeting of June 9, 2005, there will be a public hearing to consider a special exception to allow for the development of the Warrenton-Fauquier Airport in a manner consistent with the Airport Master Plan.


In 1992, the Airport was acquired by Fauquier County.  In the intervening years, a Master Plan was prepared and approved, land was acquired in order to provide for improvements and safety, and a number of hangars and related improvements were constructed.


The Airport Committee serves as an Advisory Board concerning Airport operations and improvements.  The Federal Aviation Administration and the Virginia Department of Aviation have provided significant funding to implement capital improvements.  The Airport Enterprise fund has provided the local cash match requirements for these grants and public-private partnerships have been utilized to achieve other improvements.  Attached is additional background information concerning future Airport improvement plans.


A representative of the engineering firm that has worked with Fauquier County since it acquired the Airport will be present to review the Master Plan.  Staff will provide an update on the status of improvement projects that are underway, budget development, and future plans.
