BOARD MATTERS

2.USE OF THE NEW EXERCISE FACILITY BY SCHOOL

SYSTEM EMPLOYEES (Tape 1)

(P)Chairman Davis stated that some years ago when the County exercise facility at the Massey Complex was established, the school system declined to contribute to its cost. He added that, consequently, school employees were prohibited from using the facility, and this policy has remained in effect with the move to the New Government Center.

With an acknowledgement that the cost of the new exercise room is unrelated to the expense of the old facility, Chairman Davis relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman McConnell and moved that the Acting County Executive communicate the policy change to the School Board which states that school system employees are permitted to use the exercise facility at the New Government Center under the same guidelines which apply to County employees. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hanley not yet having arrived, Supervisor Berger being absent from the meeting.

3.EXCEPTIONAL DESIGN AWARD PROGRAM (Tape 1)

Supervisor Davis noted that the Exceptional Design Award Program, which recognizes achievement in the total design of building and site, has sent its submission materials package out to the public with a June 3, 1992 deadline. Supervisor Davis moved that the Board authorize the creation of a new category to be included this year in recognition of the Affordable Dwelling Unit Projects. He added that this will help publicize the County and the Board's ongoing efforts and commitment in support of affordable housing. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hanley not yet having arrived, Supervisor Berger being absent from the meeting.

4.RATIFICATION OF NEWLY ELECTED GOVERNING

BOARD OF THE MCLEAN COMMUNITY CENTER

(Tape 1)

(APPT)

On behalf of Supervisor Berger, Supervisor Davis moved that the Board ratify the newly elected Governing Board of the McLean Community Center as follows:

*Wanda C. Hill; and

*Issam M. Saliba.

·Youths:

*Brett Prince (McLean High School Area); and

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hanley not yet having arrived, Supervisor Berger being absent from the meeting.

Vice-Chairman McConnell returned the gavel to Chairman Davis.

5.WAIVER OF FILING FEES FOR SPECIAL PERMIT

SP 89-S-047 (BURKE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

PRESCHOOL) (Tape 1)

Supervisor Bulova stated that in December 1989, the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) granted a Special Use Permit to the Burke Presbyterian Church to operate a preschool. Supervisor Bulova noted that the BZA had allowed two years for the use to be established and that the preschool is operating; however, some unforeseen problems arose in their efforts to get an occupancy permit. Since the preschool does not have an occupancy permit, the Special Permit has expired and a new application has to be filed.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to waive the filing fees and ask the BZA to expedite the case in order that it may be heard before the August 1992 recess or at the BZA's first meeting in September 1992. This motion was seconded by Chairman Davis and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hanley not yet having arrived, Supervisor Berger being absent from the meeting.

6.BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS: A PLACE TO PARK

(Tape 1)

Supervisor Alexander stated that it has come to his attention that the BZA has been informed that its members will no longer have reserved parking spaces at the Massey Building, even though the BZA will continue to meet several times a month in the Massey Building Board Room. Supervisor Alexander asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Acting County Executive to make certain that the BZA Members have a reserved place to park when they are meeting. Without objection, it was so ordered.

7.REAPPOINTMENT OF MASON DISTRICT REPRESENTATIVE

TO THE TRANSPORTATION ADVISORY COMMISSION

(Tape 1)

(APPT)

Supervisor Trapnell moved the reappointment of Mr. John H. Rust, Jr. as the Mason District Representative to the Transportation Advisory Commission. This motion was seconded by Chairman Davis and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hanley not yet having arrived, Supervisor Berger being absent.

8.REVITALIZATION BOND MONEY FOR PLANTINGS IN

THE MEDIAN STRIP ON ROUTE 236 IN ANNANDALE

(Tape 1)

Supervisor Trapnell moved that the Board direct staff to make $50,000 available immediately from Revitalization Bond money for plantings in the median strip on Route 236 in Annandale. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hanley not yet having arrived, Supervisor Berger being absent.

9.REQUEST FOR EXPEDITIOUS APPROVAL FOR OUT-OF-TURN

CONSIDERATION FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION FOR ELMWOOD

HOUSE (Tape 1)

Supervisor Trapnell stated that the Saint Albans Housing Corporation which owns the land and improvements known as Lockwood House is in direct competition for funding from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development to construct a new facility at that location. She noted that the new facility, which is called the Elmwood House, will provide affordable housing for the elderly and handicapped. If successful in the competition, the Elmwood House can be a major asset to Fairfax County just as Lockwood House has proven to be.

In order to advance and encourage the competitiveness of this proposal, Supervisor Trapnell moved that the Board provide this application for Special Exception expeditious approval by out-of-turn consideration. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Alexander and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hanley not yet having arrived, Supervisor Berger being absent.

10. C-3 - APPROVAL TO RELEASE A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL

(RFP) TO ACQUIRE A CONSULTANT TO PROVIDE

LOBBYIST SERVICES (Tape 1)

The Board next considered an item contained in the Memorandum to the Board dated May 27, 1992 regarding the Board of Supervisors' desire to obtain a consultant to provide Lobbyist services in the areas of Education, Housing, Human Services, and Transportation.

Following discussion, Chairman Davis called the Board's attention to the first paragraph, third line, of handwritten page (2) of the Advertisement. He relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman McConnell and asked unanimous consent that the Board approve adding the words, "and legislation...." after the words, "....to provide assistance in securing funding....". The first paragraph of the advertisement would read as follows:

·"Fairfax County, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C., is soliciting proposals, including a statement of qualifications from consultants and government relations firms, to provide assistance in securing funding and legislation from the federal government for various projects and initiatives to be undertaken by the County. These initiatives will include, but not be limited to, education, housing, human services, and transportation funding."

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman McConnell returned the gavel to Chairman Davis.

Supervisor Dix referred to the top of handwritten page (4), bullet three, and asked unanimous consent that the Board approve the deletion of the words, "....or the County Executive." at the end of the sentence, with the third bullet to read as follows:

·"Speak for and represent the County in federal legislative matters only in conformance with the County's policies or upon the express direction of the Project Manager in conformance with policies of the Board of Supervisors."

With a notation of the two changes above, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board of Supervisors approve the release of a Request for Proposal (RFP) to acquire a consultant to provide lobbyist services in the areas of education, housing, human services, and transportation. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hanley not yet having arrived, Supervisor Berger being absent.
