Topic: 

A Resolution to Refer to the Planning commission an Amendment to a Previously Approved Special Exception for Luck Stone Corporation to Allow Restricted Use of a Private Road for Deliveries of Construction materials to the Marsh Run Generation Corporation Peaking Facility Construction Site Off of Grasslands Road Off of Lucky Hill Road

 

Topic Description:

The Luck Stone Corporation has special exception approval to operate a quarry on several parcels owned by the company.  On November 15, 1999 , the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors amended a special exception condition (SE99-L-43) that prohibited use of private road through the properties to allow for delivery of concrete, stone, asphalt, turbines and other construction material bound for the Virginia Power Peaking Facility site on Lucky Hill Road (Route 655).  The Board of Supervisors approved the amendment to the Luck Stone Corporation special exception to alleviate safety concerns surrounding the transport of the aforementioned materials on Luck Hill Road and other nearby public roads.

Marsh Run Generation Corporation (a.k.a. Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC)) soon will begin construction of an approved peaking facility to the east of the Grasslands Road / Lucky Hill Road intersection.  That firm is seeking to use the private Luck Stone road during the construction phase for the same type of materials permitted for the building of the Virginia Power facility.  This proposed amendment would limit the amount of heavy construction and industrial traffic bound for the Marsh Run site to a small section of Lucky Hill Road .  Otherwise, the traffic would have to cross a railroad line off of Route 656 ( Remington Road ) to reach Lucky Hill Road or go through the Town of Remington to reach the site.

 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Refer this proposed special exception amendment to the Planning Commission for scheduling of a public hearing and recommendations.
