Reverse the Fauquier County Board of Supervisor’s McShin Foundation decision

On August 1, 2017, the doors opened to the McShin Foundation, offering a peer-to-peer recovery program with support from the County Sheriff's Department. The center offers a safe place for addicts seeking recovery and their families to meet and get the help they so desperately need. The Warrenton Planning Commission voted 4-0-1 on November 21 to recommend approval to the Town Council for the special use permit to open a residential facility in the Warrenton Recovery Center. There were 27 people who spoke in favor of approval for the facility and eight who spoke against.
In a suspiciously non-transparent political turn of events, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors decided to overturn this recommendation in favor of purchasing the building for demolition and paving the footprint for a parking lot.
Despite widespread support for a facility that would help address our community’s growing opioid epidemic, the voices expressing their disapproval about such a facility appeared to carry more political weight.
The Fauquier County Board of Supervisors is planning to permit the McShin Foundation to see the end of their lease in May 2018 at which time they will demolish the building, forcing McShin to establish a new location and probably preventing further improvements until a new location is established.
By signing this petition, you agree that the McShin Foundation should remain in its current location at 30 John Marshall Street and receive the special use permit being requested to add beds to the recovery center to help serve those suffering from addiction in a safe and nonjudgmental environment.
