A Resolution Authorizing the County Administrator and County Attorney to Take All Actions Necessary to Effectuate an Agreement In Lieu of Annexation with the Town of Warrenton Annexing 249.598 Acres of Land, More or Less, into the Corporate Boundary of the Town of Warrenton, Said Land Being More Particularly Described as a Portion of Alwington Farm


Topic Description:

The Town of Warrenton has proposed that the County of Fauquier enter into an Agreement In Lieu of Annexation authorizing the annexing of 249.598 acres of land into the corporate boundaries of the Town of Warrenton on the terms and conditions contained in the proposed Agreement.  The Town then intends to enter into a proffered rezoning with Centex Development Corporation for the development of the annexed land, and an additional portion of Alwington Farm currently existing within the corporate limits of the Town.  The resolution would authorize the County Administrator and the County Attorney to take all actions necessary to effectuate the Agreement in Lieu of Annexation. 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution in accordance with the key terms of agreement in principle.


Financial Impacts Analysis:

Under the proposed Agreement $4 million dollars would be paid to the County of Fauquier by the Town of Warrenton in compensation for the impacts of the annexation.  There would be no loss of real property or personal property taxes to the County.  A portion of future commercial and industrial sales tax and any future business license taxes would be no longer available to the County as a result of the annexation.  The exact amount cannot be ascertained at this time as the remaining zoned commercial land on the Alwington Farm has not been developed.

Identify any other Departments, Organizations or Individuals that would be affected by this request:
