Plan Change in Bealeton

At the January, 2009, Fauquier County Board of Supervisors meeting, James Downey successfully argued for an amendment to the County’s Comprehensive Plan to allow 13 acres at the intersection of Independence Avenue and Route 17, adjacent to Liberty High School, to be used for “Office-Mixed Use.” The addition of this area to the Mixed Use Designation enables the entire 97 acres owned by the Donald R. Tharpe Family Trust to be planned and zoned for a mixed use development. This project has been under consideration for several years and will now be the subject of a rezoning application under the new mixed use zoning ordinance adopted in November, 2008.
