Fauquier’s planning commission last Thursday unanimously backed a rezoning application for an assembly and distribution operation at Catlett.

Voting 5-0, advisory panel recommended the county supervisors approve Catlett Investment LLC’s request to rezone 10.9 acres at Route 28 and Gaskins Lane from “Commercial Neighborhood” to “Industrial Park.”

Catlett Investment LLC and EZ Treat of Haymarket have big plans for the property.

The site has a 20,000-square-foot metal structure, which previously housed a woodworking mill.

The proposal calls for a 10,000-square-foot addition to that building. A “potential future concept plan” also shows three 20,000-square foot structures.

Under the plan, EZ Treat, which makes wastewater treatment systems for residential and commercial customers, would truck components to the proposed Catlett site for assembly and shipment to job sites.

In other matters at its Thursday, Feb. 21, meeting, the planning commission also unanimously recommended approval of The Clifton Institute’s special exception permit request to construct a 4,500-square-foot building to house and conduct a range of events and programs at its 905-acre preserve north of Warrenton.

The proposed structure would be used for “future indoor activities and expansion of the” institute, according to the special exception permit application.

The special permit also would govern a various institute activities related to environmental education, ecological research and restoration for native plants and animals, day camps, overnight programs, field trips, educational events, research opportunities, guided walks and workshops. 

Murdock Head founded the non-profit as the International Academy for Preventive Medicine in 1985.

The county supervisors, who have final authority, will conduct March 14 public hearings on EZ Treat’s and The Clifton Institute’s applications.
