Draft Plan - Fauquier County


PLAN MONITORING Monitor on a continuing basis the land use/transportation activities in both Fauquier and Prince William Counties through the local and VDOT primary and secondary road planning process to ensure that key elements of this plan are implemented and not jeopardized. During this monitoring process, include land/access actions beyond New Baltimore to make sure actions do not impact plan needs within the Service District. LONG-TERM ISSUES The success of this transportation plan, in part, will be measured in its role of eliminating unnecessary traffic impacts on narrow two-lane residential streets and enhancement of Brookside Parkway and the Route 605 corridor, as well as access to Vint Hill, and existing and planned neighborhoods. All are dependent upon a much disciplined decision making process each year into the future. If key road links in this plan are never built, or are eliminated due to subdivision and other associated approvals, community benefits will be significantly reduced. This plan is essential to achieve future goals and objectives related to an access plan for the New Baltimore Service District. TRAILS AND PARKS PLAN An integral component of community’s quality of life is represented in its outdoor recreation opportunities. The freedom to move about one’s community safely, without a vehicle and for the purpose of transportation or recreation, is something that fewer and fewer communities can claim, and yet is strongly desired. Not all members of the community have access to a vehicle. The County also recognizes that members of the community wish to enjoy the health and recreational opportunities that parks and trails would provide. In response to these needs, a Parks and Trails Plan has been developed for the New Baltimore Service District. Please refer to Figure X: Public Facilities and Recreation Plan TRAIL FACILITIES Several trails have been constructed within New Baltimore; generally these have occurred within the newer residential subdivisions. Additional trail facilities, which coincide with the development of residential subdivisions, are in various stages of design and construction. These trails provide opportunity for recreation and alternative transportation. In all cases these individual trails have been designed so that they will work as individual segments that will be connected within the overall network.

within future developments should be planned so that they too can connect and contribute to the overall network. Due to the existing built environment of New Baltimore, it will be difficult to develop a complete network of trails through new development alone. Therefore it is envisioned that much of the future trail system will occur as a multiuse path alongside the significant roadways. These trails should be designed and built at the same time as when improvements are made to the existing roads, or new roads are constructed. New development in the New Baltimore Service District will also be required to address parks, trails and recreation planning in the County-wide Fauquier County Connections Plan as adopted by the Board of Supervisors. Additional bike path and trail systems may be shown in other documents to which developers may refer. The other primary references are Chapter 9-Public Facilities and Utilities and Chapter 10-Transportation of the Comprehensive Plan. PARK FACILITIES Existing park facilities are located at P.B. Smith Elementary School, C. Hunter Ritchie Elementary School, and Vint Hill Farms. The specific amenities found at these locations are outlined in the Fauquier County Parks, Recreation and Open Space Comprehensive Plan. Many smaller park facilities are located within the various subdivisions in New Baltimore. These facilities are typically owned and maintained by the individual Home Owners Associations. Additional parks and open spaces are encouraged to be planned within new neighborhoods and near schools. Within the Vint Hill Preferred Reuse Plan, there is a 20± acre regional park proposed which will contain athletic fields and facilities, as well as a 17± acre densely wooded park. In addition to the park/recreational amenities to be developed within the Brookside community, this plan proposes three (3) park areas in the Service District. As shown on Figure NB-__: Public Facilities and Recreation Plan, these parks are to be established in the vicinities of Snow Hill, the Brookside community and along South Run north of Lake Brittle. What follows is a list of goals, objectives and implementation strategies for obtaining, building and maintaining a complete network of trails, parks and open spaces for the New Baltimore Service District. GOALS 1. Provide a safe, convenient and aesthetically pleasing environment for all ages and abilities, through a network of trails and parks designed for movement by foot, bicycle or horseback, and multi-uses where possible. 2. Establish a complete network of trails in the district that connect public places, such as schools, libraries, police and fire/rescue stations, neighborhoods, shopping areas, parks, historic sites and battlefield areas. This network should also connect to Adopted April 12, 2007, Revised October 8, 2009, Draft Revisions March 1, 2013 77
