BOARD MATTER

January 10, 2005

Native Plant Transplantation Proffer

Mr. Chairman:

I recently met with representatives of two environmental nonprofit organizations; Earth Sangha and Land and Waters, to discuss how the Board of Supervisors could assist them in their efforts to transplant native plant species from parcels of land slated for development. One of their primary problems was their inability to easily gain access to parcels of land before development proceeded. I suggested that the Board might be able to facilitate access to sites that are being considered for rezoning by formulating a native plant transplantation proffer. I have attached to this Board Matter a Draft Standard Native Plan Transplantation Proffer and literature describing the missions of both Earth Sangha and Land and Waters. To further facilitate the rescue and transplantation of native species…

I therefore move that, the attached Draft Standard Native Plan Transplantation Proffer be distributed to the Department of Planning and Zoning and Fairfax County Urban Forestry to assist with helping nonprofit environmental organizations gain access to development sites to facilitate the rescue and transplantation of native plants before the initiation land disturbing activities.


Draft
Standard Native Plant Transplantation Proffer

The intent of this proffer is to facilitate an opportunity to rescue native plant species before the initiation of land disturbing activities. Except for the conditions identified below, the implementation of this proffer will in no way interfere with the land development process after approval of this rezoning. To that end, the developer of this rezoning will cooperatively work with the District Office, the Fairfax County Department of Urban Forestry, Earth Sangha and Land and Waters to coordinate an opportunity for the removal and transplantation of native plant species located outside tree save areas. In order to facilitate the rescue and transplantation of native plants prior to the initiation of land disturbing activities the developer of this rezoning will mark the general area of the tree save areas immediately after approval of this rezoning and will notify the District Office, Earth Sangha and Land and Waters twice; immediately after approval of this rezoning and at the time of the second site plan submission. Marking of the tree save areas immediately after approval of this rezoning and the implementation of the two part notification process will constitute fulfillment of this proffer.
