They will evolve as new information becomes available, projects are completed, new programs are created, additional needs are identified, and crises arise. As a component of the Capital Improvement Program, this facilities plan needs to be maintained and updated on a regular basis so that it will continue to serve as a guiding element in the preparation and adoption of the Capital Improvement Program. As such, it is recommended that the County continue to utilize an ad-hoc citizen committee appointed by either the Board of Supervisors or the Planning Commission on an annual basis to help stage the financial allocation of resources to the priorities and approaches outlined within the Plan for Public Facilities. 4 Planning in future years; construction to be undertaken by Fire and Rescue Levy A Plan for Public Facilities December, 2009 Page iv

I. Introduction This facilities plan is a component of the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and is intended to provide a comprehensive listing of projects needed to maintain adequate services, and to accommodate growth and development in the County in accordance with the County’s Comprehensive Plan, during the course of the next ten to twenty years. This plan was developed with the assistance of the Facilities Planning Subcommittee, a fivemember committee appointed by the Planning Commission and led by Planning Commission Chairman, Jim Stone. Members of the subcommittee include L. Paul Blackmer, Jr., Cedar Run District; Chris Hritsik, Scott District; Marie Lowe, Center District; Kitty Smith, Marshall District; and James Van Luven, Lee District. Input was provided by various County Departments, and there was regular participation in the development of this plan by staff in the Office of Management and Budget, County Administration and the Public Library. The information and priorities in the Plan for Public Facilities represent a point in time. This document is not intended to be a static one and should be updated on a regular basis to help provide guidance into the preparation and adoption of the financial component of the Capital Improvement Program. It is suggested that the County continue to utilize an ad hoc citizen committee on an annual basis to help gauge the financial allocations to the priorities and approaches outlined in this document. II. Rural Land and Service District Approach Since the development of its first Comprehensive Plan in the 1960s, Fauquier County’s major tenet of land use policy is directing growth into the Plan’s designated service districts, thus avoiding a pattern of development that changes the visual and functional landscape away from the tradition of settlements and rural areas. A significant focus in recent years has been on the development of service districts as sustainable communities, not merely a collection of subdivisions and commercial development solely dependent upon the automobile. Future government facilities will also be consciously planned within service districts. Warrenton will remain the center and hub of government activity, specifically in the area of Old Town. This requires new government buildings to be designed in keeping with town characteristics, with special attention given to public buildings in historic areas. By placing emphasis on building scale, design, landscaping and pedestrian-orientation, Fauquier County will ensure that public dollars are spent in a way that it is not only efficient, but also to create buildings that will be long-lasting symbols of a responsible government. The location of new public building and space in service districts will help make these areas economically-viable, pedestrian-scaled mixed-use centers. This is especially important in the Town of Warrenton, where County government employees are able to support Old Town businesses because of the number of government facilities located downtown. The Services Districts of Bealeton, Marshall and Remington all have defined town centers, where government facilities should be located. The only exception to this rule is regional parks, which should be A Plan for Public Facilities December 2009 Page 1
