A Resolution to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Supporting Placement of Historic Sign Markers for John Marshall’s Leeds Manor Rural Historic District


Topic Description:

In November of 2007, the John Marshall’s Leeds Manor Rural Historic District was placed on the Virginia Landmarks and National Register of Historic Places.  The Citizens for Fauquier County (CFFC) has budgeted and expressed to VDOT that it wants to place signs in the public right-of-way that both welcome and announce to the traveling public that they have entered this district.  Pursuant to the Zoning Ordinance, there is no County permitting process required where such an organization partners with the County in the placement of such signs; however, the historic markers will need to meet VDOT sign placement requirements associated with safety, size, and color.

With the celebration of Fauquier County’s 250th Anniversary, such signs are a welcomed addition to remind our citizens and others about the heritage and special place through which they are passing.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.
