contractors offices, shops and material storage yards with
all equipment and materials contained entirely within a
building or completely screened from view as listed in
Article 3-317.3 of the Fauquier County Zoning Ordinance.
Please note that a number of changes will need to be
made to the site layout (as shown on the concept development
plan) during the site plan process to ensure compliance with
the all I-1 regulations, to include the following:
a) Property line and access easement will need to be vacated
or moved as proposed building cannot be
located over property line or easement.
b) Additional landscaping and buffering will be required to
ensure that the use is “completely screened from view” per
the use category 3-317.3.
c) Additional area and landscaping may be required along
some property lines to meet buffer requirements or bring
them more closely into conformance with existing buffer
d) Paving for travel-ways and parking areas; if a dustless
surface waiver is desired, it may be applied for and will be
evaluated during site plan review.
The existing building to remain on the Southeastern
corner of the property does not meet the current setback
requirements. This structure is a nonconforming building.
Any increase or alteration to such structure must comply
with Article 10 of the Fauquier County Zoning Ordinance.
that it is not possible to do a full evaluation of the
conceptual plan’s compliance with zoning regulation until
more detailed plans are filed at later stages. Future plans
must comply with all regulations of the zoning ordinance.
Engineering Department has reviewed the above referenced
project and has the following comments:
SWM/BMP’s will be required if the increase (new
gravel, new pavement, conversion of gravel to pavement or
rooftop) is greater than 10,000 square feet.
Proper permits from state and federal agencies for
removal of fuel tanks are to be obtained prior to land
disturbing permit issuances.
The BMP calculations are to use the Occoquan Method
rather than the Chesapeake Bay Method, if BMPs are
required. Change stormwater management notes on Sheet 3.
After reviewing the above stated
rezoning plat signed by Marvin Hinchey, P.E., on September

Drainfields are not allowed on easements. (Fauquier
County Code Section 17-15, (C)(2))
Driveways and parking lots shall not be constructed
over drainfield areas. (Virginia Sewage Handling and
Disposal Regulations 12 VA-C 5-610-700 E.1)

Summary and Recommendations:
recommended that the Board of Supervisors postpone this item
for at least 30 days. This delay would allow the applicant
time to refine the plat and proffers. Especially in light
of the new information from the owner/applicant, via its
project representative, that it may want to retain some
other by-right or permitted uses allowed in the I-1 zoning
district, versus the conditional zoning proposed by the
Planning Commission. This would allow staff time to
determine whether those proposed uses were compatible with
the uses within this National Register Historic area, as
well as Chapter 7 of the Comprehensive Plan (Land Use Plan:
Villages and Settlements).

applicant, there were no changes or expansion of the use
associated with this project. If that changes or new
proffers or plats are submitted. Staff and referral
agencies would require adequate time for review of those
Drilling has provided service and been an integral part of
the community for a long time. This rezoning would maintain
that business and allow it to continue its operations.
