Topic:

A RESOLUTION LIMITING PRIVATE STREETS FROM INCLUSION IN THE SECONDARY ROAD SYSYEM SIX-YEAR PLAN - RURAL ROAD ADDITION PROGRAM THROUGH FISCAL YEAR 2005

Topic Description:

During its review of the proposed Secondary Road Six-Year Plan Budget for the last two years, the Transportation Committee has identified an essential funding concern.  The Committee adopted a resolution recommending that the Board of Supervisors consider a funding limitation on the Rural Addition Program portion of the Secondary Road Six-Year Plan.  The Committee's objective was to direct all of the limited funds available under the Six-Year Plan to only existing public roads, rather than to fund private street improvements, which would benefit a limited number of private users.  This proposed limitation would not impact private streets that currently meet Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) standards.  This proposed limitation would be through fiscal year 2004-2005. 

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

Consider the attached resolution.

Financial Impact Analysis:

No impact analysis was made; however, with the proposed resolution the Six-Year Plan funds would be directed to existing public streets.

Identify any other Departments, Organizations or Individuals affected by this request:

VDOT and the citizens of Fauquier County

Transportation Committee Recommendation:

On December 3, 2002 , the Transportation Committee unanimously recommended approval of the limitation on Rural Addition Program.
