Warren County, Front Royal agencies form Development Review Committee

By Kim Walter -- kwalter@nvdaily.com

Warren County and Front Royal officials are continuing in their efforts to combat their negative reputation, among both the existing and prospective business community, by forming a Development Review Committee.

The idea came from County Administrator Doug Stanley, who also suggested a management study of the Building Inspections Department, which started two weeks ago. He and other officials feel the committee will be yet another step towards building up a more positive image of the community's inspection and permitting processes.

The committee will consist of representatives from the Building Inspections Department, Planning and Zoning departments in the county and town, the town's Public Works Department, VDOT, Virginia Department of Health, Rappahannock Electric Company, and the Economic Development Authority.

"The committee is not designed to be an environment where decisions are made, but one where projects are discussed for awareness of procedures and issues between the departments and agencies," the committee's purpose statement stated, which was written by the county's Planning Director Taryn Logan.

"We want to make sure everyone's on the same page," she said. When individuals apply for permits, the associated information will be part of that month's meeting so all parties are aware and can add input, Logan said.

The group will meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. in the Warren County Government Center Administration Conference Room.

Meetings will focus on commercial and industrial projects that either proposed or on going so that the involved agencies can "determine any issues that may arise through the process."

Permit applicants or those looking at properties in the county or town are also welcomed at meetings where their prospective projects are on the agenda. If necessary, realtors and other development personnel in the community may also be included in some discussions, Stanley said.

"Everyone was happy and willing to be a part of the committee," Stanley said.

"We're really trying to do proactive things," Logan said.
