A Resolution of Authorizing the County Administrator to Execute the Asphalt Trail Maintenance Agreement between the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors and the Woods at Warrenton Homeowners Association, Inc.

Topic Description:

Next month, the Department of Community Development will include a resolution for Board of Supervisors consideration that will request VDOT to accept all Woods at Warrenton streets into the Secondary System of State Highways.  However, one task needs to be completed before that action can occur. 

The subdivision has an asphalt trail (+ 4 feet in width) that was constructed within the right-of-way on the south side of Swift Crossing Drive due to a stream crossing.  The trail was intended to be maintained by the HOA, and VDOT gave its approval for that trail location due to the existing stream and topographical conditions.  Before the street acceptance process can conclude, VDOT requires the County and the Woods at Warrenton Home Owners Association to execute a maintenance agreement assuring the perpetual maintenance of that facility.

The attached agreement has been executed by the Woods at Warrenton HOA and obligates itself as the County’s agent in implementing future repairs and improvements to the asphalt trail as allowed or required by the VDOT issued permit.  Refer to the attachment for the more detailed terms of the agreement.  The final step needs the County’s signature.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.
