SE 02-M-20

APRIL 25, 2002

If it is the intent of the Fauquier County Planning Commission to recommend approval of SE 02-M-20 located on Parcel I.D. 6012-20-7910-000 for a reduction in the 85% open space requirement pursuant to Sect. 2-406.5 of the Fauquier County Zoning Ordinance, the staff recommends that the Planning Commission condition such approval by requiring conformance with the following development conditions:

1.      The special exception is granted for and runs with the land indicated in this application and is not transferable to other land.

2.      This special exception is granted only for the purpose(s), structure(s) and/or uses indicated on the plat approved with the application, as qualified by these development conditions.

3.      The 50-acre parcel shall be divided into no more than two parcels of approximately 28 acres and 22 acres in size.  Both parcels shall be placed in a deed-restricted open space easement that prevents any further subdivision.  Such deed language shall be presented with the subdivision plat of the property for County review and approval.

4.      The resultant lots will not be voluntarily transferred to a non-immediate family member for at least ten (10) years, unless the Board of Supervisors finds that an extraordinary hardship is being caused by the ten (10) year restriction.
