A Resolution to Update County Housing Policies in Chapter 4: Zoning and Land Use - Fauquier County Comprehensive Plan


Topic Description:

On November 9, 2006, the Board of Supervisors passed a Resolution to form an Affordable Housing Committee charged with reviewing and prioritizing recommendations set forth in an Affordable Housing Task Force report issued in September 2006. 

On May 8, 2008, the Board of Supervisors held a Work Session to review the Fauquier County Affordable Committee’s preliminary recommendations, one of which is to update the Comprehensive Plan to reflect the goal for diversity of housing type, price, and density.  The current Comprehensive Plan housing policies were adopted in 1994 and warrant re-evaluation in light of more current demographics and socio-economic data contained in the Affordable Housing Committee’s reports.  Community Development staff participates on the Affordable Housing Committee and would assist in organizing already compiled data and draft policies for incorporation into the Chapter 4 of the Comprehensive Plan for review by the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors.
