A RESOLUTION TO AMEND A PREVIOUSLY APPROVED PURCHASE OF DEVELOPMENT RIGHTS APPLICATION

 

WHEREAS, on February 19, 2002, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution for the Purchase of Development Rights (PDR) Program to acquire conservation easements for the purpose of protecting agriculture, providing open space, ameliorating the impact of development on the County, and authorizing payment of $20,000 per development right; and

 

WHEREAS, on July 21, 2003, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution to fund the Purchase of Development Rights Program, and among the applicants a landowner offered three parcels identified as PIN 6879-12-7845, PIN 6879-10-9751, and PIN 6879-24-9800; and

 

WHEREAS, the landowner has requested that only the 205-acre parcel identified as PIN 6879-24-9800 be purchased at this time, and

 

WHEREAS, on October 28, 2004, the Purchase of Development Rights Committee recommended that the Board of Supervisors approve the parcel identified as PIN 6879-24-9800 alone, and that the remaining two parcels identified as PIN 6879-12-7845 and PIN 6879-10-9751 be considered together in a separate application to be submitted by the landowner in the next application cycle; now, therefore, be it
