Topic:  SPECIAL EXCEPTION  #SE 02-S-16; TO ALLOW FOR AN OUTDOOR EDUCATIONAL USE, AS WELL AS AN OVERNIGHT TENT CAMPGROUND IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE SCHOOL USE; SCOTT MAGISTERIAL DISTRICT. 

Topic Description:

The applicant is seeking Special Exception approval under Section 5-505 and Section 5-907 of the Zoning Ordinance for an outdoor educational use and an associated overnight tent campground.  The proposed uses are to be located on a 91-acre farm on the east side of Landmark School Road, about one-half mile north of its intersection with Bull Run Mountain Road.  The applicant proposes to offer weekly overnight educational camp sessions for nine (9) weeks during the summer months from June 10th to August 16th. Each session will be limited to twelve (12) students.  

As determined by the Health Department, a bathhouse served by a new drain field and well, will be needed for shower and restroom facilities.  Since the conditions of a conservation easement, held by the Virginia Outdoors Foundation, limit new construction on the property, the bathhouse must be accommodated within an existing building or constructed as a pool house adjacent to the existing swimming pool.  The latter option is proposed.
