RESOLUTION

A RESOLUTION TO APPROVE SE03-C-22: A WAIVER OF THE PUBLIC SEWER REQUIREMENT FOR A SUBDIVISION

            WHEREAS, the Fauquier County Subdivision Ordinance generally requires the use of public sewer in subdivisions of 25 lots or greater; and

            WHEREAS, the Applicant has made a number of attempts to bring public sewer to this site but the Town of Warrenton has refused to consider the Applicant’s request; and

            WHEREAS, to deny the Applicant’s request for a waiver of the public sewer requirement might unreasonably foreclose development options on the site; and

            WHEREAS, the Zoning Ordinance provides that, in residential zones, the Board may grant a special exception to waive the requirement for public sewer where certain standards are met; and

            WHEREAS, the Fauquier County Planning Commission has conducted a public hearing on SE03-C-22 and has determined that the request is consistent with the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance; and

            WHEREAS, the Planning Commission has forwarded to the Board of Supervisors a recommendation to approve SE03-C-22 subject to certain conditions; now, therefore, be it

            RESOLVED by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 21st day of July 2003, That SE03-C-22 be, and is hereby, approved subject to the following condition: 

The Applicant shall give first priority to developing the property using a publicly owned sewer system, second priority to developing with a privately built system to be conveyed to a public entity, and third priority to developing with conventional individual drainfield systems.
