Topic:  TEXT AMENDMENT TO SECTION 3-307.7 OF THE FAUQUIER COUNTY ZONING ORDINANCE

 

This text amendment would delete continuing care facilities as a special exception use in the Rural Agriculture (RA) and Rural Residential-2 (RR-2) Zoning Districts.

Deliberations during the Planning Commissionís and Board of Supervisorsí considerations of the recent Suffield Meadows application led to significant concerns about the impacts of such facilities.   Specific associated impacts of concern in the rural areas focused on traffic generation, intersections, density, septic needs, emergency access and other issues when located outside of designated service districts. 

If this text amendment is approved, continuing care facilities could be located in the Residential-1 (R-1) and Village (V) Zoning Districts with special exception and site plan approvals.  The Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors would have the ability to evaluate each application on a case-by-case basis.

The Planning Commission voted May 30, 2002 to initiate this amendment.  The Commission held a public hearing June 27, 2002 and voted to forward this proposal to the Board of Supervisors with a recommendation of approval. 

 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Hold a public hearing at the July 15, 2002 Board of Supervisorsí meeting.  If the Board wishes to approve the amendment, an ordinance is Attachment 1.  

 

Financial Impacts Analysis:

No financial analysis was conducted for this amendment.
