is necessary, unless a majority of the Board of Supervisors
wishes to consider this preliminary subdivision
application. On September 29, 2004, the Planning Commission
voted to approve the Tinpot Overlook Preliminary Plat,
subject to the conditions noted below:
The Final Plat shall be in general conformance with
the Preliminary Plat entitled “Tinpot Overlook” dated July
12, 2004, signed by James R. Ashley July 15, 2004, except as
modified by these conditions. This approval is for a
maximum of three (3) residential lots.
When submitting the Final Construction Plans, a
complete landscape plan shall be provided with full detail
of planting type, size and location pursuant to Article
7-603.2 of the Zoning Ordinance.
If driveway culverts are required, they shall be
designed to pass the 10-year storm without overtopping.
There shall be no fill in the floodplain with the
development of this property.
The sight distance profile shall reflect 610 feet.
The County recommends that no below grade basements
be constructed on soils with high water table due to wetness
unless the foundation drainage system of the structure is
designed by a licensed professional engineer to assure a dry
basement and preclude wet yards and recirculation of pumped
or collected water. Where possible, all exterior foundation
drainage systems shall be designed to gravity daylight
without assistance from mechanical means. All discharged
water (mechanical or gravity) must be conveyed to an
adequate channel. Drainage easements, where necessary,
shall be placed on the final plat. A note shall be placed
on the final plat stating “Basements are not recommended in
mapping units 12A, 15B, 17B, 17C, and 48B. Basements in
these mapping units are subject to flooding due to high
seasonal water tables. Sump systems may run continuously,
leading to possible premature pump failure.”
A Virginia Certified Professional Soil Scientist
(CPSS) needs to adjust the Type I Soil Map soil lines
onto the Final Construction Plan. This needs to be done in
the field and checked for any additional soils information
to be added to the final construction plan.
A signature block shall be placed on this plat for
the CPSS to sign which states:
Preliminary Soils Information Provided by the Fauquier
County Soil Scientist Office via a Type I Soil Map
(1"=400') Dated 6/16/04.
This Virginia Certified Professional Soil Scientist has
field reviewed and adjusted the preliminary soil
information onto the final plat (1"=_?_') and
certifies that this is the Best Available Soils
Information to Date for Lots 1-_?_.
Va. Certified Professional Soil
Interpretive information from the Type I soil report
for each mapping unit shown on the Final Construction Plan
shall be placed on the same sheet as the soil map. Also, a
Symbols Legend shall be placed on the Final Construction
Plan to identify spot symbols.
10. The statements under Home Sites and Road Construction
shall be placed on the same sheet as the final soil map.
This final soil map shall be filed in the Building
Department to be used exclusively for obtaining soils
information for this proposed subdivision.
Two copies of this final soil map with CPSS signature
shall be submitted to the Soil Scientist Office before Final
Plat approval is made.
Signature sets of the Final Construction Plans will
require original CPSS signature.
Due to landscape position (drainageways) and high
seasonal water tables, the following statement shall be
placed on the Final Construction Plan to be placed in the
front office of Community Development: "The County
recommends that no below grade basements be constructed on
soil mapping units 12A, 15B, 17B, 17C, 48B, 417B, 440B,
440C, 440D due to wetness unless the foundation drainage
system of the structure is designed by a Virginia Licensed
Professional Engineer. The foundation drainlines should be
daylighted for gravity flow on all structures."
The following statement shall be included on final
soils map and E & S plans:
“PRIOR TO FINAL CONSTRUCTION PLAN APPROVAL, IT SHALL BE
AGREED THAT ALL DRAINFIELD AREAS ARE TO BE SURROUNDED BY
SAFETY FENCING AND NO CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC SHALL CROSS NOR
SHALL LAND DISTURBANCE OCCUR IN THESE AREAS. THE FENCING OF
THESE AREAS IS TO BE VERIFIED BY COUNTY STAFF BEFORE THE
ISSUANCE OF THE LAND DISTURBING PERMIT.”
The following statement shall be placed on the final
construction plan: “Foundations placed in soil mapping
units that show a moderate, high, or very high shrink-swell
potential in the most recent Interpretive Guide to the
Soils of Fauquier County, Virginia
will require a geotechnical evaluation in order to determine
Soil mapping units 73B, 73C, 77B, 77C, 77D, 77E,
160B, and 173B are usually shallow to bedrock. The
following statement shall be placed on the Final
Construction Plan: “The County recommends that before road
or home construction begins in soil mapping units 73C, 77B,
77C, 77D, 77E, 160B, and 173B, a site specific evaluation be
conducted so that shallow to bedrock areas are identified.
These areas may require blasting if deep cuts or excavation
Areas of steep slopes shall be avoided at all cost
due to high erosion hazard. Proper erosion and
sedimentation practices shall be installed before
construction begins. Soil mapping units 77D & E should be
left in their natural state.
Mapping Units 5A and 178A may contain hydric soils
(wetlands). An approved wetland delineation shall be
required for the first submission of the Final Construction
