A Resolution to Approve a Waiver for a Right-of-Way Less Than Fifty Feet in Width, Cedar Run District


Topic Description:


The owners/applicants are seeking a waiver of Zoning Ordinance Section 7-302 1.A.(3), Limitations, which would allow a subdivision on a private street less than 50 feet in width. The property fronts on Foulks Road, which is a private road that connects to Dumfries Road (Route 606). A small portion of Foulks Road is less than 50 feet in width. The applicants are proposing to divide a 28.3-acre parcel into two lots, one family transfer lot of 9.09 acres and a residue of 19.2 acres which will contain an existing house and garage. The reason for the proposed development is to provide housing for the owners/applicants’ daughter who will assist in taking care of her mother Pauline Schrock, who is handicapped.

The subject property is zoned Rural Agriculture (RA), and has the subdivision potential to be divided into three (3) lots. Adjacent properties to the immediate north, south, east and west are zoned Rural Agriculture (RA). There is currently a house and a garage located on the property.

Attachment 1 is the proposed division showing access to the lots. The applicants’ Statement of Justification is included as Attachment 2.


Planning Commission Action:

On August 30, 2007, the Planning Commission unanimously recommended approval of the Applicant’s waiver of Section 7-302 1.A.(3) of the Zoning Ordinance. The Planning Commission staff report is available upon request.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.


The property is located on the east side of Foulks Road, south of Dumfries Road (Route 606), Cedar Run District. The north east portion of the property is located in Prince William County.
