*WE HAVE NOT ENDORSED ANY CANDIDATES, BUT SIMPLY PROVIDE THIS AS A SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY"
We heard from Mr. Andrew Hopewell, Assistant Chief of Planning in Fauquier County's Community Development. Andrew explained that these changes are a "total re-write" to that section of our Comprehensive Plan.
Once adopted, this "Rural Lands" plan becomes the new basis by which our Board of Supervisors determines local ordinances and regulations governing how we live on and use our land. Scroll down to see all 4 parts of the Video of meeting, below.
PART 2 of 4; SCROLL DOWN TO SEE March & June VIDEOS OF COUNTY'S PRESENTATIONS. OVER 50% of Fauquier's residents live in "Rural Lands." We learned that anything outside the "Service Districts" or the"Villages" is classified as "Rural Lands"

PART 4 of 4; Twenty years ago was the last time the County made significant changes to this section. Do these apply to you?

Since the MBRA Board has become more inclusive, tolerating a diversity of opinion on the Marshall Main Street Project, we have received much pressure and heat from some who support the project, even when our November Community Meeting was not about the project. We ask for tolerance and respect for our opinions~
