The Shenandoah Farms Sanitary District (SFSD) is pleased to announce the start of the Pine Ridge Rd., Phase I Rural Addition project.  This project extends from the intersection with Mountain Lake Dr., Rte. 694 to the intersection with Copenhaver Rd.   The Pine Ridge Rd. project is being constructed concurrently with the Copenhaver Rd., and Western Ln., Phase I Rural Addition projects.  All three projects total approx. 0.51 mile in length and once completed will extend to the intersection with Old Oak Ln.    The estimated $867,000 projects will include drainage improvements, new culverts, wider shoulders, removal of vegetation and hazardous trees, improved sight distance, the upgrading of side street intersections, and a new paved surface.  Approx. 75% of project costs will be paid for by VDOT and the County of Warren.  The remaining 25% share is the SFSD’s responsibility.  Once construction is completed, the roadways will be turned over to VDOT for maintenance.

Each year the Shenandoah Farms Sanitary District (SFSD) updates it’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP).  The CIP which contains 20 projects, includes VDOT Revenue Cost Sharing projects as well as internal projects funded entirely by the Sanitary District. The CIP serves as a blue print for improvements throughout the Sanitary District and currently has $6.1 million worth of approved projects.  During his quarterly report to the Shenandoah Farms Property Owners Association Board on Thursday, Jan. 26, 2017, acting Sanitary District Manager, Bob Childress reminded the Board it was time to begin the CIP revision process for Fiscal Year 2017/18.  The revision process normally begins in January and ends in June, with the adoption of the new plan being put into place on July 1st.  The revision process allows for completed projects to be removed, estimates updated, new projects added, and priorities adjusted if needed.  Childress will be working with the POSF Board over the next few months to develop a draft plan.  Once a draft plan is in place it will be considered for approval by the  Warren County Board of Supervisors after a Public Hearing is conducted, usually in June of each year.   Childress and the POSF Board encourages residents to get involved in the update process and to submit potential projects over the coming weeks, they feel should be considered.  Resident questions about the CIP revision process or potential projects should be referred to Childress or their POSF Board member.
After receiving public comment at a Public Hearing on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 the Warren County Board of Supervisors took action to approve the Shenandoah Farms Sanitary District FY 2016/17 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). The CIP contains a total of twenty (20) projects with a total estimated cost of $6,163,256.00.  There are ten (10) proposed Rural Addition projects which will be funded jointly through VDOT’s Revenue Sharing Program at (50%), the County (25%), and Sanitary District Budget (25%).  The ten (10) other internal projects will be funded through the Sanitary District Budget and other sources.  The approved CIP is not fully funded.  However, there is approximately $468,700 set aside in reserves as a result of FY 2010-2014 budget surpluses and other revenues that can be applied to the CIP projects.   The highest priority projects will be funded first with the remaining projects addressed as future budgets and surpluses allow.

Work continues on improvements to the Shenandoah Farms Sanitary District.  This past year saw the completion of three rural addition projects including:
  • Farms Riverview Road - (0.10 miles)
  • Fellows Drive - Phase II (0.15 miles)
  • Drummer Hill Road - Phase I (0.27 miles)
These improved roadway sections have been added to the State Highway System for maintenance and will allow Sanitary District funds to be used to maintain and improve other roads.  In total, since taking over management of the District on July 1, 2010, a total of eleven rural addition projects have been completed resulting in permanently turning over 2.53 miles of roadway to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to maintain.  This will allow us to use those maintenance funds on other roads in the District.
