Topic: 

A Resolution to Schedule a Public Hearing to Lease Property Located at 7252 Fifth Street, Remington, Virginia, to Fauquier Housing Corporation for Use as an Affordable Rental Unit

Topic Description:

In January 2005, the Board of Supervisors authorized the acquisition of property in Remington located at 7252 Fifth Street in order to provide future access to adjoining property of twenty-eight acres that is intended to be improved as a future park.  The property includes an existing residential unit that requires some improvement.  Fauquier County could manage and improve the structure but it is suggested that it may be more appropriate to lease the property to Fauquier Housing to improve and manage as an affordable rental unit.  General provisions of the lease are: that it be managed as an affordable unit, that it be made available to Fauquier Housing for a five (5) year period, and that Fauquier Housing would have the responsibility of improving the property and the opportunity for rental income from the property.  If the lease is terminated prior to the five (5) year term, Fauquier County would provide a pro-rated reimbursement to Fauquier Housing for the expenditures required to improve the structure. 

 

If this approach is acceptable, a public hearing to consider the lease to Fauquier Housing will be scheduled in August.
