Topic: 

A RESOLUTION TO APPROVE THE REQUEST OF DOMINION VIRGINIA POWER TO BE RELIEVED OF THE OBLIGATION SET FORTH IN CONDITION NUMBER 3 OF THE FINAL ORDER OF THE BOARD DATED NOVEMBER 5, 2001, WITH RESPECT TO COOL LAWN FARM

Topic Description:

On March 13, 2002, Dominion Virginia Power submitted a request to be relieved from its obligation under Condition number 3 of a Final Order adopted by the Board of Supervisors on November 5, 2001. The Final Order related to Dominion Virginia's proposal to acquire additional right-of-way in the Southern Fauquier Agricultural and Forestal District in order to construct a new 34.5 kv power line adjacent to an existing power line. The Final Order provided, in pertinent part: 

"Should the governing body of any other jurisdiction approving a portion of this electric line project require a less impactive method of constructing the 34.5 kv electric feeder line, such construction shall also be used in this agricultural-forestal district. Dominion Virginia Power shall have the right to apply to the Board of Supervisors to be relieved from the obligations of this condition upon a showing that the less impactive method imposed in the other jurisdiction will not result in a lessening of the impact in this jurisdiction or would be uneconomical or impractical, which decision shall be at the sole discretion of the Board of Supervisors." 

A copy of the request is attached hereto.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider the request of Dominion to be relieved of the above referenced condition, and grant or deny the request.  Resolutions to deny or approve the request are attached hereto.
