The proposed resolution authorizes the County Administrator to execute a revised Memorandum of Understanding between the Lord Fairfax Community College and the Counties of Clarke, Fauquier, Frederick, Page, Rappahannock, Shenandoah, Warren, and the City of Winchester.  Under present funding mechanisms for community colleges, while the State bears the cost of  school building costs, site development costs are allocated to the localities in the particular community college system; in this case, the Lord Fairfax Community College system.  Under the proposed Memorandum of Understanding, the counties agree to support funding requirements for site development of all future Community College buildings at either the Middletown or Fauquier Campuses.  The agreement also provides that each county's local share of the site development costs is to be based upon the jurisdiction's enrolled student head count as a percentage of total college enrollment.  Finally, each county reserves the right to approve each individual project that incurs site development costs.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

There is no present financial impact from executing the Memornadum of Understanding.  Individual projects which incur site development costs will be brought to the Board of Supervisor for consideration.
