A Resolution to DENY a Waiver Allowing a Private Street That Does Not Connect Directly to a State Maintained Street, MARSHALL DISTRICT

            WHEREAS, Mermah Payandeh, owner, is seeking a waiver of Zoning Ordinance Section 7-302.1.B to allow a subdivision on a private street that does not connect directly to a State maintained street; and


            WHEREAS, the applicant wishes to create eight (8) large lots from 3 parcels,  her 213-acre parcel identified as PIN 6032-17-7831-000, her 152-acre parcel identified as PIN 6022-94-5679-000, and her 121-acre parcel identified as PIN 6022-86-6327-000, with access via an existing network of private streets, which connect to Apple Manor Road, a private street; and


            WHEREAS, the proposed access streets connect to a private street (Apple Manor Road) rather than a public road; and


            WHEREAS, the length of the streets that are proposed to serve these lots is in excess of 10,000 feet; and

            WHEREAS, the use of these existing streets to serve an additional eight (8) homes will be of significant impact to property owners who use these streets and would afford inadequate access for emergency vehicles and owners of the proposed lots; and

            WHEREAS, on June 29, 2006, the Fauquier County Planning Commission unanimously recommended denial of the proposed Zoning Ordinance waiver; and

            WHEREAS, the denial of this request will not place an unreasonable restriction on the use of the property and; now, therefore, be it hereby

            RESOLVED by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 10th day of August 2006, That a waiver of Zoning Ordinance Section 7-302.1.B for Mermah Payandeh to create eight (8) large lots on the above-referenced parcels on private streets that do not connect directly to a State maintained street, be, and is hereby, denied.
