Topic:

A Joint Work Session with the Fauquier County School Board

 

Topic Description:

 

 

A presentation by the Fauquier County Public Schools and a discussion on a request to obtain a Comprehensive Plan Amendment to include the proposed school site in the New Baltimore Service District and to allow for extension of central utilities to serve the proposed school.

 

A Site Selection Committee consisting of representatives of Fauquier Countyís Board of Supervisors, School Board, Planning Commission, School Administration, Engineering Office, and Realtors considered four sites in the New Baltimore area for the proposed third high school.  The Committee developed criteria which included location, development issues, site suitability and transportation to evaluate the four sites.  Based on their evaluation, site evaluations prepared by Moseley Architects and Timmons Group, and a Traffic Impact Study prepared by KELLERCO, Inc., the Site Selection Committee recommended that the Fauquier County School Board accept Edward L. Millerís donation of 75 acres known as the Wesfield Property located on Route 605.  The Fauquier County School Board voted in favor of the Wesfield Property in November 2004.  The Fauquier County School Board requested that the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors approve the Comprehensive Plan Amendment to include the proposed school site and the necessary Special Exceptions to provide central utilities to serve the proposed school.  The Fauquier County Board of Supervisors considered the Fauquier County School Boardís request following a Public Hearing May 12, 2005, and voted to table their decision until the completion of a Joint Work Session requested by Fauquier County Board of Supervisorís Chairman and Fauquier County School Board Chairman.
