RESOLUTION

A Resolution to Refer to the Fauquier County Planning Commission a Zoning Ordinance Text Amendment to Section 5‑205.5 (Additional Standards for Auto Repair Garages)

WHEREAS, the Fauquier County Zoning Ordinance currently permits auto repair garages as residential businesses, with special permit approval, following a public hearing by the Fauquier County Board of Zoning Appeals; and

WHEREAS, the additional standards for auto repair garages state the use is limited to a maximum of four (4) vehicles as any time; and

WHEREAS, this Zoning Ordinance text amendment would increase the maximum number of vehicles permitted to six (6); and

WHEREAS, the Fauquier County Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) would remain the granting authority following a public hearing which gives the BZA the latitude to judge each application separately; and

WHEREAS, the proposed amendment would not alter the screening, storage and other regulations currently found in the additional standards; and

WHEREAS, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors has determined that such an amendment would be in keeping with the intent of the Zoning Ordinance as it relates to residential businesses; now therefore, be it

RESOLVED by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 17th day of June 2002, That the proposed ordinance amending Section 2-505.5 to increase the maximum number of permitted vehicles associated with an auto repair garage from four (4) to six (6) vehicles while maintaining the additional standards currently found in the Zoning Ordinance be, and is hereby, referred to the Fauquier County Planning Commission for appropriate consideration and action.
