by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 18th day of November
2002, That the Board of Supervisors’ 2003 Legislative Program be, and is
hereby, amended as follows:
- Fauquier County supports Adequate Public Facilities legislation, which
would permit high growth localities, as part of their subdivision or
zoning ordinance, to determine whether public facilities are adequate to
support the services which will be required by the proposed subdivision or
Fauquier County continues to support legislation that would allow
localities the option to assess impact fees for School Construction and
other essential government services in lieu of voluntary cash proffers.
Funding - Fauquier County supports the full funding of the
State’s share of the Standards of Quality, full funding of any
categorical educational mandate, including pay raises, and full funding of
the State’s portion of the Standards of Learning relating to
instructional technology. Fauquier County also supports increased funding
for School Construction.
- Fauquier County respectfully requests those State legislators
representing Fauquier County introduce legislation to incorporate Fauquier
County into the Cost of Competing School Funding Formula.
Fauquier County opposes any measure that would eliminate or reduce any
local government revenue authority.
Government Zoning and Land Use Authority - Fauquier County opposes any further dilution of the zoning and land use
regulatory authority of local governments.
- Fauquier County strongly supports any legislative proposal that results
in the State sharing a portion of its income tax revenues (within its
existing rate structure) with
localities and which provides local flexibility in determining how it
should be used.
- Fauquier County supports legislation to provide for increased local
authority in planning, zoning and revenue matters through a statutory
relaxation of the Dillon Rule. The
relaxation of the Dillon Rule should not, however, be accompanied by a
shift of responsibility for various programs from the state government to
