is necessary, unless a majority of the Board of Supervisors
wishes to consider this preliminary subdivision
application. On October 28, 2004, the Planning Commission
voted to approve the Menmuir Subdivision (Phase II)
Preliminary Plat, subject to the conditions noted below:
Final Plat shall be in general conformance with the
“Preliminary Subdivision Plat Summer Sky Subdivision”
dated August 11, 2004, signed by Carson G. Balzrette on
10-15-04 and received in the Planning Office on October
18, 2004, except as modified by these conditions. This
approval is for a maximum of two (2) residential lots.
Pursuant to Section 7-603 of the Fauquier County Zoning
Ordinance, a landscape plan shall be submitted with the
Final Construction Plans for approval.
Dedication of right-of-way shall be required to make
Union Church Road 25 feet wide from the center line to
this subdivision property line.
driveway culverts shall be a minimum of 15 inch diameter
and pass the 10-year storm.
County recommends that no below grade basements be
constructed on soils with a 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 that “Basements are not
recommended in mapping units 13B and 16B shall be on the
final plat. 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.
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 _____7/12/04________.
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 1-2.
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.
This final soil map shall be filed in the Building
Department to be used exclusively for obtaining soils
information for this proposed subdivision.
10.Two copies of this Final Soil Map with CPSS signature
shall be submitted to the Soil Scientist Office before Final
Plat approval is made.
11.The Final Construction Plan signature sets shall require
original CPSS signature.
12.The following statements under Home Sites and Road
Construction shall be placed on the same sheet as the
Final Soils Map:
The County recommends that no below grade basements
be constructed on soil mapping units 13B, 16B, and 416B 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
The following statement needs to 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 proper design.”
