March 18, 2002, the Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution
directing the County Administrator to take all necessary actions
to institute the road abandonment process for a portion of Wesley
Chapel Road, which has been discontinued for maintenance and is
not currently in the State Secondary System of Highways.
The portion of Wesley Chapel Road proposed to be abandoned
is approximately 1/4 mile long and is shown on Fauquier County
geographic information system plat, dated March 5, 2002, entitled
"Portion of Wesley Chapel Road to be Abandoned," which
plat is attached to this Agenda Request. Lori Bakewell, a resident
of Wesley Chapel Road, initiated the road abandonment request on
this matter. By letter received on May 14, 2002, Ms. Bakewell now
requests that the County cease its consideration of the
abandonment of the portion of Wesley Chapel Road.
On March 29, 2002, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors
and the Transportation Committee unanimously voted to withdraw its
recommendation to the Board of Supervisors that it abandon the
aforesaid portion of Wesley Chapel Road.
