            WHEREAS, on March 12, 2009, June 11, 2009, and July 9, 2009, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing on the Rezoning and Special Exception requests and considered both oral and written testimony; and

WHEREAS, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors finds in the matter of the Rezoning application REZN08-LE-007 and Special Exceptions SPEX08-LE-028 and SPEX08-MA-030:

1.     That the provisions of the Zoning Ordinance for a Rezoning and Special Exception are not met in these applications, the Board of Supervisors finding that said applications will negatively impact the public health, safety, and welfare of residents of Fauquier County.

2.     The proposed use will hinder and discourage the appropriate development and use of adjacent land and buildings and impair the value of adjacent land and buildings in violation of Section 5-006 of the Zoning Ordinance.

3.     That the proposed use will be incompatible with existing or planned development in the general area, as set forth in Section 5-006 of said Zoning Ordinance, and will be incompatible with the Comprehensive Plan.

4.     That the proposed use fails to comply with and is not in conformity with all the applicable standards of Article 5 or Article 13 of said Zoning Ordinance and all other applicable requirements of said Zoning Ordinance.

5.     That the proposal does not conform to the Comprehensive Plan as it relates to uses, design standards and site layout in the Bealeton Service District.

6.     That the Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) indicates the development will produce service levels of E and F.

7.     That the traffic impacts of the proposed use have not been mitigated.

8.     That the proffers presume approval of waivers to access, landscaping and yard requirements, whereas such waivers have not been requested or analyzed.

9.     That a waiver to allow access from both Routes 17 and future Church Road have not been requested or analyzed, but access to both is shown on the proffered Concept Development Plan (CDP); now, therefore, be it

            RESOLVED by the Board of Supervisors of Fauquier County, Virginia this 9th day of July 2009, That SPEX08-LE-028 and SPEX08-LE-030, and REZN08-LE-007 be, and are hereby, denied.
