C. Site Location and

C. Site Location and Suitability Standards With the County’s goal of creating sustainable communities, the siting of new schools within service districts will help the County in its investment in towns and neighborhoods, as well as provide opportunity for co-location and/or shared use with libraries, senior centers, parks, etc. Siting schools as neighborhood anchors and community focal points adds to their role as places to educate students. It has been shown that such schools have increased participation by parents in school/after-school activities, higher use of the facility by the community after hours, and improve the sense of ownership in the school by residents. A 2003 study by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) examined the relationship between school location, the infrastructure and environment around schools, transportation choices for trips to school, and impacts of those choices on air pollution. It found that: School proximity matters. Students with shorter walks and bike times to and from school are more likely to walk or bike. The built environment influences travel choices. Student traveling through neighborhoods with sidewalks and bike lanes are more likely to bike and walk. School location has an impact on air emissions. Centrally located schools that can easily be reached by walking and biking reduce air pollution. 2 D. Priority Needs FCPS has expressed as their immediate capital facilities needs the renovation of Fauquier High School and location/site development for Elementary School #12 within southern Fauquier. The Schools are undertaking a community visioning and strategic planning effort beginning in September 2009 and carrying through the school year 2009-2010. That planning effort is expected to provide a programmatic and facilities direction to carry the schools forward for the next 5-10 years. While it would have been desirable for the Facilities Planning Committee to have had more direction from the Schools at this time in order to develop a fully comprehensive document, efforts to establish their priority needs must wait until the Schools’ planning processing is undertaken. 2 A Plan for Public Facilities December 2009 Page 58

XI. Utilities and Airport Infrastructure This section covers the water and wastewater utilities owned and managed by the Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority in detail. Additionally, an overview of the telecommunications (broadband) needs in the County and the resources of the Warrenton- Fauquier Airport are presented. A. Water and Wastewater Utilities Mission Statement: It is the mission of the Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority to provide central water and sewer services to both existing and future customers at the lowest practicable rates, consistent with the County’s Comprehensive Plan that meets or exceeds the quality of the requirements established by Commonwealth and Federal regulatory standards. Existing Facilities Water and wastewater facilities are provided in selected service district areas by the Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority (FCWSA). The Town of Warrenton serves the Warrenton Service District for both water and sewer, which includes the incorporated town and areas immediately adjacent to it. Projected growth within the service districts is based on the planned capacity of water and sewer service in each area. The Town of Remington provides water service within its corporate limits and FCWSA provides service to the remainder of the Remington Service District. Water Facilities The Town of Warrenton relies primarily on surface water utilizing a reservoir on Cedar Run just north of the Town limits. It also has two groundwater production wells, producing only about 72,000 gallons per day. FCWSA provides community water to seven of the County’s service districts and the Town of The Plans from groundwater supplies. The water facilities within Vint Hill are owned by the Vint Hill Economic Development Authority and operated by the FCWSA. The Calverton and Midland Village Services Districts currently have no public water service and no planned service, with property owners relying on private, individual wells. The following table lists existing and planned public water facilities, with capacities in million gallons per day (mgd). A Plan for Public Facilities December 2009 Page 59
