A Resolution to Authorize the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors to Accept the Dedication of Real Property in the Cedar Brooke Subdivision

Topic Description:

The approved rezoning for the Reynard’s Crossing development included a proffered condition that “at the time of the recordation of the final plat, the Applicant shall dedicate to Fauquier County the property identified in the Concept Plan as the Library site consisting of 2.945 acres, to be used by Fauquier County for construction and maintenance of the Library or for a fire and rescue station or other public use consistent with the neighborhood, at the discretion of the County.  The Applicant or its successors will provide the County such further documentation as shall be necessary to affect the transfer of fee simple title to the County.”    


The developer is now requesting approval of the Final Plat that includes the above referenced dedication, which has been increased to 3.5 acres.  While the above referenced library site has been located at a different site in Bealeton, and the site was determined to not be appropriate for a fire and rescue site, the Parks and Recreation Department has indicated that it would like the property.  The proposed resolution would authorize the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors to accept the dedication of this public use site, contingent upon receipt of an acceptable environmental audit report.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.
