RESOLUTION 

A Resolution to DENY SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT SPEX03-MA-016, a Category 27 Special Exception to AMEND A PREVIOUSLY APPROVED CONDITION TO Allow FOR A FURTHER REDUCTION OF OPEN SPACE TO accommodate A WATER STORAGE SILO

            WHEREAS, the owners of the property located off West Main Street in Marshall, across from the Marshall Rescue Squad and east of Lunceford Lane, further identified by PIN #6969-47-7043-000, have requested a Category 27 Special Exception Amendment to allow for a further reduction of open space in the Cannon Ridge Subdivision to accommodate placement of a water storage silo; and

WHEREAS, the requested Special Exception Amendment would allow the applicants a further reduction of open space to allow for the water storage silo site; and

WHEREAS, at its May 27, 2004 meeting, the Planning Commission held a public hearing and then voted unanimously to recommend denial of the Special Exception Amendment SPEX03-MA-016 to the Board of Supervisors for the following reasons:

1.      The proposal for the companion Special Exception SPEX04-MA-020 is not consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.

 

2.      The proposal failed to demonstrate that there were no other alternatives available, nor did it show that any other options were pursued and then eliminated due to cost, location, or other reason.

 

; and

            WHEREAS, on June 21, 2004, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing and considered the Special Exception application, and concurred with the judgment of the Planning Commission; now, therefore, be it

            RESOLVED by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 21st day of June 2004, That Special Exception Amendment SPEX03-MA-016, Douglas E. & Sharon Y. Darling, Owners/Applicants, be, and is hereby, denied.
