AUTHORITY/RECREATION DEPARTMENT REORGANIZATION

STUDY AND I-11 - PARK AUTHORITY/RECREATION

DEPARTMENT REORGANIZATION STUDY (Tape 3)

The Board next considered Information Items contained in the Memorandum to the Board dated September 21, 1992 requesting authorization for staff to:

·Information Item 10: Amend the contract for Nolan, Norton and Company in the amount of $50,000; and

·Information Item 11: Proceed to implement the Park Authority/Recreation Department Reorganization Study as outlined in the Memorandum to the Board as another strategic initiative.

Chairman Davis relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman McConnell and asked unanimous consent that the Board refer these items to the County Executive for his review and recommendation.

Supervisor Dix asked that the request be amended to include that the Board direct the County Executive, following his review, to return these items to the Board for discussion prior to the appropriation of funds, and this was accepted.

Without objection, the amended request was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman McConnell returned the gavel to Chairman Davis.

32.SUPERVISOR MCCONNELL TO LEAVE THE MEETING EARLY

(Tape 4)

Chairman Davis stated that it would be necessary for Supervisor McConnell to leave the meeting shortly. Therefore, he relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman McConnell and asked unanimous consent that Supervisor McConnell be allowed to present her Board Matters out of order. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman McConnell returned the gavel to Chairman Davis.

33.NEED FOR RADAR GUNS (Tape 4)

Supervisor McConnell stated that last week at a South Run Forest Homeowners Association meeting concern was expressed about the speed of vehicles on the Parkway. She said that she mentioned the need for radar surveillance to the Police Department and was informed that only one radar gun was working at the police station in this area. She said that this station was issued five radar guns initially and three are in for repair and one had been loaned to Mason District. She also said that the average age of the radar guns are six to seven years old with the newest ones being five years old.

Supervisor McConnell said that during the last few years this item has been taken out of the police budget as a cost savings item. Recently the County received a grant from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to purchase six new radar guns. This will help to restore the old ones which are no longer serviceable.

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to investigate additional grants and if none are available then the Board could consider purchasing additional radar guns for next year. Without objection, it was so ordered.

34.APPRECIATION EXPRESSED TO INDIVIDUALS ASSISTING

WITH CENTREVILLE BICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION (Tape 4)

Supervisor McConnell expressed her appreciation to all those in Springfield District who participated in the Celebration as well as the Fairfax County Park Authority and Centreville High School.

Supervisor Frey briefed Board Members on Centreville's successful bicentennial celebration last weekend and asked unanimous consent that the Board recognize and express its appreciation to the following individuals for their assistance with the celebration:

·Fairfax County Police Department - Fair Oaks Station

Captain Art Mabry;

Lieutenant Dave Lubas; and

·Fairfax County Park Authority

Jim Peacock; and

Laura Hargis;

·Fairfax County Department of Environmental Management

·Fairfax County Schools

Without objection, it was so ordered.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, there was an additional announcement regarding this matter. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#58.)

35.USE OF RECREATION FACILITIES LOCATED IN THE

GOVERNMENT CENTER (Tape 4)

Chairman Davis stated that the Adult Softball Council has a couple of employees whom the County houses and he relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman McConnell and asked unanimous consent that these employees be allowed to use the recreation facilities located on the first floor of the Government Center. Without objection, it was so ordered.

36.SCHEDULING OF BOARD RETREAT (Tape 4)

Supervisor Davis stated that he is trying to schedule a date for the Board Retreat whereby Board Members can meet with the County Executive and review the Board's priorities.

Following discussion, Supervisor Davis moved that the Board empower Theodore Austell, III, Executive Assistant to the County Executive, to schedule a date for the Retreat as expeditiously as possible. This motion was seconded by Vice-Chairman McConnell and carried by unanimous vote.

37.PROPOSED EXPANSION OF THE SCHOOL BOARD (Tape 5)

(BACs)

Supervisor Davis stated that earlier this year the County sought legislation at the 1992 General Assembly Session to prevent the expansion of several Boards, Authorities, and Commissions (BACs). He said that one of the changes requested permission to have the School Board with as many as 12 members and at present time the maximum size of the School Board is fixed at 11 members. He said that with the changing demographics in the school system, the addition of two At-Large members would enable the Board to give more representation to the minority community particularly the Asian-Hispanic community which has no representatives on the School Board at this time.

Therefore, as part of the legislative agenda, Supervisor Davis moved that the Board request two At-Large seats. This motion was seconded by Vice-Chairman McConnell.

Following discussion, Supervisor Davis amended the motion to hold a public hearing on the "whole" legislative report, prior to the approval of the legislative package.

The question was called on the motion and, as amended, carried by unanimous vote.

38.PROPOSAL TO DEVELOP A PROGRAM TO ENCOURAGE MAJOR

ATHLETIC FIELD USER GROUPS TO PARTICIPATE IN FIELD

MAINTENANCE (Tape 5)

(BACs)

Supervisor Davis stated that there are outstanding recreational opportunities provided by the many sports organizations in Fairfax County. Because of the popularity of sports in the County, the athletic fields are heavily used.

Supervisor Davis said at this time of budget constraints it is essential to work to maximize the use of the fields and ensure their upkeep. He added that the County can help and encourage users to assist in the management and care of the athletic fields, depending on the resources and abilities of the various user groups.

Therefore, Supervisor Davis asked unanimous consent that the Public Schools Fee Policy Task Force work with the Athletic Council, in cooperation with the Fairfax County Park Authority, to examine the possibility of developing a partnership program which would encourage major field user groups to participate in field maintenance.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

39.CONGRATULATIONS TO THE HERITAGE RESOURCES BRANCH,

OFFICE OF COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING (OCP) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Davis stated that the County's Heritage Resource Branch in the Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP) is going to be recognized for its excellence at a ceremony to be held in Richmond on September 30, 1992. He congratulated the staff, the volunteers associated with the Program, the History Commission, the Architectural Review Board on this most worthy recognition of the excellence of the County's Heritage Resources Program.

Supervisor Davis said that the County could send two additional individuals to the ceremony and he moved that the Board:

·Send Reverend Clinton Austin, Chairman, History Commission, and Bruce Korenski, Senior Heritage Resource Planner, OCP;

·Designate Supervisor Hyland to accept the award on behalf of the County at the Ceremony; and

·Recognize the staff at a meeting of the Board subsequent to September 30, 1992 to present the award to those responsible for the program.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Alexander and carried by unanimous vote.

40.ASSISTANCE FOR EDUCATION SUMMIT AND APPOINTMENT OF

SUPERVISOR HYLAND AND CHAIRMAN DAVIS TO SUMMIT'S

STEERING COMMITTEE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Davis called to the Board's attention the Board's expression of support for the "Education Summit" which is meant for School Board members, Supervisors, General Assembly members, business people, educators and others to discuss pressing education issues in Fairfax County.

He stated that the summit is scheduled for Saturday, November 14, 1992 at the Government Center, and he encouraged all Board members and interested citizens to attend.

Supervisor Davis further noted that School Board staff is making most of the arrangements for the summit, as well as providing staff time and resources. Given the significance of this meeting, Supervisor Davis expressed his belief that it is appropriate for the Board of Supervisors to provide assistance and he moved that the Board:

·Direct the County Executive to make every effort to facilitate the Education Summit, including providing custodial service and other logistical support; and

·Designate the Chairman and Supervisor Hyland to serve on the Board.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hanley being out of the room.

41.U.S. GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION (GSA)

CONFERENCE REGARDING PROCUREMENT OF OFFICE

SPACE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Davis announced that as a result of numerous discussions his office has had with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), he will be hosting, with the cooperation of several businesses in Fairfax County, a special conference at the Government Center on Wednesday, October 21, 1992. He invited all Board Members to attend.

Supervisor Davis stated that as the world's largest customer, the Federal Government procures a large amount of commercial office space each year and GSA acts as the real estate agent. He announced that the Administrator of GSA has offered to meet with the Fairfax County business community to discuss the Federal Government's office space needs. Also, specialists from GSA National Capital Region will be available at the conference to discuss GSA procurement and respond to questions regarding the marketing of office space to the Federal Government.

Supervisor Davis added that Congressman Frank Wolf has strongly supported and assisted with the contacts with GSA and will also attend the conference. Also, six business organizations and the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority are cosponsoring the conference.

Supervisor Davis announced that the two-hour conference will begin at 10:00 a.m. and is open to the public free of charge.

42.PRIVATIZATION ISSUES - GOLF COURSE OPERATIONS

CONSULTANT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Davis said that privatization in many instances is an innovative method of improving services at a lower cost. He said that he has been approached by a firm willing to provide a pro bono feasibility study of privatizing the operation of the County's golf courses.

Supervisor Davis stated that he has discussed this type of unsolicited study with the Purchasing Agent and the County Attorney's office. He said that the review must utilize existing public documents and the use of proprietary information is not allowed. Information or data not normally available cannot be prepared or generated. He added that if the County and Park Authority decide to privatize the golf courses in the future the firm conducting the study will not be barred from competing for the contract with other firms providing that the County makes this study readily available to the public and follows standard procurement procedures.

Therefore, Supervisor Davis moved that the Board:

·Encourage the Park Authority to take advantage of this offer from the American Golf Corporation; and

·Direct the County Executive to cooperate in any way that is necessary.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Berger.

Following discussion, Supervisor Dix amended the motion to request a report from the Park Authority as to its disposition regarding this item, and this was accepted.

Following input from Robert L. Howell, Acting County Attorney, and further discussion among Board Members, Supervisor Dix stated for the record that he has met with representatives from this company to hear about what they do as he has with several others. He said that he has forwarded this information to the Chairman of the Park Authority for its review and consideration.

The question was called on the motion which CARRIED by a recorded vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Hanley, and Supervisor Hyland voting "NAY."

43.REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP) FOR TRAINING FOR SENIOR

EXECUTIVES AND MANAGERS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Davis stated that the County has a Request-for-Proposal (RFP) requesting bids from vendors to provide sensitivity training to the County's 100 senior executives and managers. He noted that this RFP is not a budget item approved by the Board, but rather a decision made by senior staff to approve this training and money has apparently been reallocated from another fund.

Supervisor Davis said that the RFP was a result of the County's budget decisions made earlier in the year which implemented program and personnel reductions. However, the RFP, as written, implies that the downsizing effort has caused extreme anxiety among the County's top executives and suggests that they do not have the experience or capability to function in less than a rosy environment.

Supervisor Davis noted that the RFP is for $40,000 for sessions in which senior County executives would engage in, among other things, drills, exercises, games, mind-mapping, role playing, video-taping and feedback. He stated that it is his belief that this proposal is frivolous and a waste of time and the taxpayers' money.

Supervisor Davis called to the Board's attention the projected multi-million dollar deficit the County will face in the coming year and that it cannot afford frivolous expenditures. Although tough decisions have been made, it is his belief that the County is not in a crisis operating environment. Further, now that the County has a new County Executive, Supervisor Davis suggests that the County Executive be given time to assess the current management environment and recommend specific training to the Board, if necessary.

Therefore, Supervisor Davis moved that:

·RFP #30030914 be cancelled immediately;

·The $40,000 identified for the RFP be transferred to the reserve; and

·No funds from any other account be identified or used for this purpose.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Berger.

Supervisor Dix asked that the motion be amended to direct staff to report at a later date on how this evolved to this situation, and this was accepted.

Following discussion, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that, before action is taken on this issue, he be granted additional time to review the RFP. Without objection, it was so ordered.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, action was taken by the Board on this matter. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#46.)

44.BALTIMORE AND WASHINGTON METROPOLITAN STATISTICAL

AREAS TO BE MERGED (Tape 5)

Supervisor Davis called to the Board's attention that based upon the 1990 census data, the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is prepared to merge the Baltimore and Washington Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA). He noted that information from MSAs is widely used by business and government to compare various areas and can be an important marketing tool for Fairfax County.

Supervisor Davis stated that in connection with the merger of the two areas, the Congressional delegation has been requested to suggest names for the new combination, within the guidelines established by OMB. Baltimore-Washington-Hagerstown and Baltimore-Washington-Fredericksburg have been suggested as possible names. Supervisor Davis stated that it is his belief that given the fact that Fairfax County is the most populous jurisdiction in the statistical area and it plays a significant role in the regional economy, it would be appropriate and necessary for Fairfax County to be included in the new designation.

Accordingly, Supervisor Davis moved that on behalf of the Board, he be authorized to communicate this name suggestion to the Congressional delegation. This motion was seconded by Vice-Chairman McConnell and carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide additional information regarding compliance with the Clean Air Act if Fairfax County is included with Baltimore in the metropolitan statistical area. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Davis asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to determine if there is a way to "undo" this action. Without objection, it was so ordered.

45.LAST WEEK FOR MARK GROSSMAN OF THE FAIRFAX

JOURNAL NEWSPAPER (Tape 5)

Supervisor McConnell announced that this is the last week that Mark Grossman of the Fairfax Journal Newspaper will be on staff. She wished him well.

46.CONTINUATION OF THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP)

FOR TRAINING FOR SENIOR EXECUTIVES AND MANAGERS

(Tape 5)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, this item was discussed and action deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#43.)

For clarification purposes, Supervisor Davis' previous motion was restated that:

·RFP #30030914 be cancelled immediately;

·The $40,000 identified for the RFP be transferred to the reserve;

·No funds from any other account be identified or used for this purpose; and

·That the Board direct staff to report at a later date on how this evolved into this situation.

The question was called on the motion which carried by unanimous vote.

Vice-Chairman McConnell returned the gavel to Chairman Davis.

47.STATUS OF COMMUTER RAIL STOP IN LORTON

(Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Acting County Attorney to brief the Board during today's Executive Session regarding the status of the Commuter Rail stop in Lorton, which is the subject of legal proceedings in the bankruptcy court. Without objection, it was so ordered.

48.OPERATIONS AT FAIRFAX COUNTY ADULT DETENTION

CENTER(Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that he had recently received a copy of a letter from "Stephen" concerning the practices and costs of our penal system -- in both dollars and human terms. In his letter, Stephen highlights the flaws in a corrections system which spends $32,000 per inmate per year that fails to adequately deal with the cause of a chronic problem -- substance abuse treatment for addicts in Fairfax County's jail.

Supervisor Hyland read the first paragraph of Stephen's letter:

·"On February 19, 1992, I began serving time in the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center (FCADC) on a conviction of petty larceny. The charge stemmed from an attempt to steal merchandise from a store in the County. At the time, I was actively addicted to cocaine."

Supervisor Hyland noted that Stephen's letter states that despite repeated efforts to gain acceptance into a substance abuse program, it was only during the last week of his incarceration that he was permitted to attend two hours of drug abuse education and treatment. In short, it seems that the attitude of the criminal justice system and society toward criminal offenders is to detain them in grossly overcrowded facilities and not address the cause of their jail term.

Supervisor Hyland continued that the letter was extremely well-written and cites quotations from a number of published articles concerning the detention of prisoners without consideration being given to the reasons for the crimes committed which often times relate to substance abuse. Stephen also relates his personal experience during his incarceration period of what seems to be an unprovoked attack on him because of his request for "Inmate Request Forms."

Supervisor Hyland added that although Stephen has sent his letter to a number of people under his full name and address, he will honor his right to anonymity unless Stephen personally requests otherwise.

Supervisor Hyland reiterated his concern about the quantity and complexity of the issues addressed in Stephen's correspondence and accordingly, he moved that the Board direct staff to review these issues and report with recommendations. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of five, Supervisor Alexander, Supervisor Berger, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Trapnell being out of the room.

49.OUT-OF-TURN HEARING BEFORE BOARD OF ZONING

APPEALS (BZA) AND SIMULTANEOUS PROCESSING FOR

SITE PLAN AND SPECIAL PERMIT FOR MOUNT VERNON-

ON-THE-POTOMAC CITIZENS ASSOCIATION'S TENNIS

COURT CONSTRUCTION (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that he has been contacted by the Mount Vernon-on-the-Potomac Citizens Association requesting assistance with a plan to construct tennis courts on their commonly-owned property. He noted that the Association's effort began last spring by presenting their plan to all homeowners in the subdivision. After receiving overwhelming support for the project, the Association's representative was informed by the County that they would require a rough grading permit because there were over 5,000 square feet involved. Supervisor Hyland further stated that the Association subsequently learned that despite the fact that their project appeared to be relatively simple (the addition of two tennis courts), it was determined that they will require a Special Permit and need to comply with additional conditions imposed by the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA).

Since the Mount Vernon-on-the-Potomac Citizens Association is attempting to complete construction prior to winter, they are requesting to be scheduled by the BZA within the next 45 days, and accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that staff schedule an out-of-turn hearing before the BZA and simultaneously process the site plan and the special permit. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Trapnell being out of the room.

50.EMERGENCY DISASTER PREPAREDNESS PLAN FOR HISTORIC

SITES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that as a consequence of the historic Mount Air fire last spring, on June 8, 1992, the Board directed the Heritage Resources Branch, Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP); the Police Department; the Fire and Rescue Department; and the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) to develop an emergency disaster preparedness plan to protect historic sites located in Fairfax County.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to finalize its plans and report at the October 26, 1992 Board Meeting with a presentation. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Alexander and carried by a vote of five, Supervisor Berger, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Trapnell being out of the room.

51.COMMENDATION FOR LORTON COMMUNITY ACTION CENTER,

GUNSTON PLAZA, AND GDC TRUCKING IN ASSISTING

HURRICANE VICTIMS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that Fairfax County is very fortunate to have had so many people and organizations respond to help the victims of Hurricane Andrew. Without their involvement and commitment, there would have been many more victims of this catastrophe than there were.

Supervisor Hyland recognized the Lorton Community Action Center (LCAC) because they provided an opportunity for a need that reached the hearts of hundreds of concerned Lorton area residents. People who dropped off donations of everything from dog food to tents to flashlights to checks kept saying that it was a wonderful experience for them to be able to drop off items in the local community. Some who intended to only stop by with a check or material goods saw what was going on at the Gunston Plaza drop off store front, pitched in and stayed to help prepare the items for shipment. The spirit of the people was truly uplifting and pulled the community together for a common good. It was a wonderful feeling to see so many people involved to help their fellow people in Florida.

Supervisor Hyland stated that this event would not have been successful without the involvement of two key Lorton businesses -- Gunston Plaza's owners, Robert and Marilyn DeLuca, and property manager, Sam Skinner, and GDC Trucking, who shipped the materials. The assistance of these businesses enabled LCAC, a local organization helping those in need, to raise thousands of dollars and ship the vitally needed materials.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to transmit letters of commendation under the Board's signature to LCAC, Gunston Plaza and GDC Trucking. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Trapnell being out of the room.

52.CHESAPEAKE BAY PROGRAMS - "THE BAY STARTS HERE"

AND "YOUR RIVER STARTS HERE" (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that the Chesapeake Bay program has launched its first watershed-wide citizen action campaign - "The Bay Starts Here" and "Your River Starts Here." He continued that the programs are designed to promote stewardship among the citizens of the Bay watershed. Information distributed through this vehicle encourages people to participate in the restoration by learning what actions we can take at our residency, work and school. The Bay program intends to distribute 40,000 kits which will contain a water faucet aerator to conserve water; a lawn ruler to assist residents cut their grass to proper depth to minimize absorption; and stickers to place around the house with a reminder for water conservation. The start-up kits also contain an action guide with suggestions on ways to further reduce pollution and protect the environment.

Supervisor Hyland stated that in order to receive a starter kit, one can call 804-786-4500 or the Chesapeake Bay program office at 1-800-523-2281.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board:

·Direct the Public Information Office to issue a press release on this program; and

·Request the Water Authority to distribute this information with each water bill.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hanley and carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Trapnell being out of the room.

53.BOUNDARY ADJUSTMENT (Tape 6)

(R)Supervisor Dix stated that as a result of the boundary adjustment between Fairfax County and the Town of Herndon, property located south of the Dulles Airport Access Road/Toll Road and west of the Fairfax County Parkway came into the County. Under the Zoning Ordinance, when land comes into the County in this manner, it is placed in the R-C District. The property is located in the Reston-Herndon Suburban Center. He said that the zoning on the property to the south is I-4.

Supervisor Dix moved adoption of the following Resolution:

"WHEREAS, this property is planned for office use up to 0.5 FAR, and

WHEREAS, the R-C zoning designation, which permits residential use at a density of one dwelling unit per five acres at this location, needs consideration by the Board; and

WHEREAS, the public necessity, convenience, general welfare and good zoning practice require consideration of this rezoning;

THEREFORE, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board of Supervisors initiate a Board's Own Motion rezoning to rezone Tax Map Parcels 16-4((2))29 and the R-C zoned portion of the adjacent parcel to the I-4 District and that this action be scheduled for public hearing as expeditiously as possible."

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Berger and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

54.MATTERS PENDING BEFORE THE FAIRFAX COUNTY

WATER AUTHORITY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Dix noted his concern about two matters which are pending before the Fairfax County Water Authority and how they reconcile with the interests of the citizens of Fairfax County.

First, Supervisor Dix stated that it is his understanding that the Water Authority is considering an increase of up to 25 percent in water rates, and he expressed his concern about how such a dramatic increase can be justified. Secondly, Supervisor Dix stated that it is his understanding that the Authority is considering the purchase of a new headquarters building, and he questioned the justification of such a purchase, especially when the proposed space may far exceed that of the Authority's current facility or its future needs.

Supervisor Dix stated that, while he recognizes that the Water Authority has certain independent statutory authority, it is the Board of Supervisors that is ultimately responsible to the citizens of Fairfax County for the actions of County government. He further stated that, in his view, the Board of Supervisors has good reason to be concerned about the necessity and magnitude of the proposed rate increase and building purchase.

Therefore, in order that the Board and the General public can be fully informed of significant fiscal matters pending before the Fairfax County Water Authority, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board of Supervisors direct the County Executive to convey and schedule the Board's request for a presentation by the Chairman of the Fairfax County Water Authority, at the October 5, 1992 Board Meeting, to discuss the following:

·The reasons the Water Authority is proposing to increase water rates and, in particular, the necessity for an increase of the magnitude being proposed; and

·The reasons the Water Authority is proposing to purchase a new headquarters building, the necessity of the amount of space being proposed, and the proposed cost and financing of this purchase.

This motion was seconded by Chairman Davis and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

55.WAIVER OF MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS AND EXPEDITIOUS

PROCESSING FOR BROADMOOR STREET, HAYFIELD FARMS,

RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD)

(Tape 7)

Supervisor Alexander called to the Board's attention his Board Matter of September 14, 1992 regarding the waiver of fees for parking permits on Broadmoor Street across from Hayfield High School. He noted that he was informed that staff conducted an informal site survey of the area and that the petition cannot be processed because the area involved (Broadmoor Street from Telegraph Road to Welch Court) does not have the required 100 on-street legal parking spaces. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct staff to waive the 100 on-street parking space requirement and process the petition for this application expeditiously in order to establish this Residential Permit Parking District (RPPD). This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hanley and carried by unanimous vote.

Additionally, Supervisor Alexander noted that the required $100.00 fee per address was waived by the Board at its September 14, 1992 meeting.

56.USE OF GOVERNMENT CENTER LOT FOR

COMMUTER LOT/COMMUTER PARKING (Tape 7)

Supervisor Alexander stated that the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes presently under construction between Route 50 and the Capital Beltway are expected to be available for traffic towards the end of the year. In order to ensure that this investment is used to the maximum, it is essential that everything is done to encourage carpool formation and use of express buses that will be using these lanes.

Supervisor Alexander said that there are several hundred surface parking spaces that remain vacant at the Government Center adjacent to the Government Center Parkway. Supervisor Alexander moved that the Board direct the Office of Transportation to report with a plan to use approximately 150 to 200 of these spaces for commuter parking and possibly consolidating existing bus service so that express bus service operates between this parking lot and the Vienna Metrorail Station. He said that in view of the increasing bus operating costs, doing so will result in reducing costs and providing more direct service to County residents. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hanley.

Supervisor Hanley asked that the motion be amended to include the possibility of using the lot for other than a commuter parking lot as well as a bus location and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, and as amended, carried by unanimous vote.

57.ANNOUNCEMENT OF GROUNDBREAKING

CEREMONY FOR FRANCONIA-SPRINGFIELD

STATION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Alexander announced that the groundbreaking ceremony for the Franconia-Springfield Station will be held on Saturday, November 21, 1992 between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

58.COPIES OF THE CENTREVILLE BICENTENNIAL

PROGRAM AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, there was further discussion regarding this item. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#34.)

Supervisor Frey announced that the commemorative programs for the Centreville Bicentennial celebration can still be purchased by the public for $3 at the Sully District Office and several other locations.

59.AUTHORIZATION FOR THE INDUSTRIAL

DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY TO EXECUTE

PROFFERS AND CONDITIONS RELATED TO

PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT

APPLICATION PCA 85-C-091-3 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey informed the Board that the INOVA Hospital Board is pursuing a proffered condition amendment at the Fair Oaks Hospital and that the Industrial Development Authority is required to execute all proffers.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board request the Industrial Development Authority to execute all proffers and conditions which have been agreed to or hereafter agreed to by the County and INOVA Hospitals related to Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 85-C-091-3 filed concurrently with Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 92-Y-024, relating to the Fair Oaks Hospital site.

Chairman Davis noted, for the record, that his wife is a practicing gynecologist at Fairfax Hospital and he would abstain from voting on this issue.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hanley and CARRIED by a recorded vote of eight, Chairman Davis abstaining, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

60.ESTABLISHING PROCEDURE FOR MOVING

THE STUART HOUSE AND OTHER STRUCTURES

(Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey stated that at the Board of Supervisors' meeting on September 14, 1992, action was taken to authorize staff to proceed with the necessary arrangements to advertise the sale of a County-owned structure referred to as the Stuart House. Assuming that the property sale is successful, he stated that there will be the need to have a clear procedure established for relocation of the structure. Even though the purchaser will be responsible for moving the structure, coordination with the County and State will be critical. A step-by-step procedure should be established, including agency contacts with phone numbers, and these contacts should know what the procedures are.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to establish a clear procedure for moving the Stuart House, which could also serve as a procedure for moving other structures, so staff will be prepared to work with the successful bidder to culminate the relocation as expeditiously as possible. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hanley and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

61.VIRGINIA RUN TRAIL ON COUNTY-OWNED

PROPERTY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey informed the Board of a section of trail in Virginia Run, Weltman Estates, Section 4, between Lots l6 and l7. He stated that the trail is on County-owned property. The trail was originally designed to lead to Park Authority property but now the Park Authority will not be receiving this land and it now belongs to Fairfax County. Atrail is no longer needed because the land will not be developed for recreational activities and is not a part of the Countywide Trails Plan.

The difficulty in resolving this issue comes because of litigation involving the homeowners association and the developer over other bonded issues. Neither side has been able to make a move that could amend this situation.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to determine if the Board can initiate removal of the trail, since it is on County-owned property, from the Site Plans. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Berger and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

62.THIRTEENTH ANNUAL MASON DISTRICT PARK

DAY (Tape 8)

Supervisor Trapnell invited all Board Members and interested individuals to the Thirteenth Annual Mason District Park Day to be held on Saturday, September 26, 1992 from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. She stated that all proceeds from the event will go to the Friends of Mason District Park to benefit the park and performances at the amphitheater.

63.REQUEST THAT CLEAN FAIRFAX COUNTY, INCORPORATED

BE PERMITTED TO USE COUNTY'S MAIL SERVICE

(Tape 8)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting during "Presentations," the Board expressed its appreciation to members of Clean Fairfax County, Incorporated, for its environmental protection programs. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#4.)

Supervisor Bulova stated that Clean Fairfax County, Incorporated promotes and assists with neighborhood and community clean-ups, makes presentations to elementary school students, and supports Fairfax County ecology clubs. Their work augments and leverages State and County waste management efforts. Presently, Clean Fairfax County, Incorporated is suffering from severe budget cutbacks. While the County does not directly contribute to its budget, the County allows Clean Fairfax County, Incorporated office space in the Department of Public Works (DPW), Division of Solid Waste. Faced with serious budgetary problems, Clean Fairfax County, Incorporated is trying to find ways to keep afloat until their revenue stream from the Litter Tax Appropriation improves (it has been reduced by 45 percent over the past two years).

Because Clean Fairfax County, Incorporated's mail consists largely of County pamphlets and informational material that are requested by citizens, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to review and consider the request that Clean Fairfax County, Incorporated be permitted to use the County's mail service for in-kind (postage and office supply) support and report with recommendations. She stated that Clean Fairfax County, Incorporated's budget for postage last year was only $500. This motion was seconded by Chairman Davis.

Following brief discussion, the question was called on the motion which CARRIED by a recorded vote of seven, Supervisor Berger and Supervisor Dix voting "NAY," Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

64.RECOGNITION OF ROYAL LAKE PARK CITIZEN

VOLUNTEERS AND COUNTY EMPLOYEES (Tape 8)

Supervisor Bulova expressed her appreciation to the hardworking and dedicated volunteers and County staff that spent many hours over the past several years, over countless weekends, creating a usable two-mile trail around Lake Royal in Fairfax. She stated that John McAnaw, Representative, Kings Park West Civic Association, had been the organizer and coordinator of the project. In this day of diminished County resources, she announced that this is an excellent example of how the County can leverage the efforts and materials of public employees and the private sector.

Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to prepare, for presentation before the Board at its meeting scheduled for October 26, 1992, the appropriate Certificates of Appreciation to recognize the outstanding volunteers from the communities of Kings Park West, Glen Cove, Lake Point, Village Park, and other neighborhoods and individuals who were involved, as well as those employees from the Park Authority. This motion was seconded by Chairman Davis and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

65.REQUEST THAT MOSCOW INTERNS BE PERMITTED TO

ENROLL IN COUNTY'S FAIRCHOICE HEALTH INSURANCE

PLAN (Tape 8)

Supervisor Bulova announced that Fairfax County government, along with the Fairfax Bar Association, the Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC), and the Virginia Department of Economic Development, are participating in an exchange internship program with the City of Moscow. The program is a part of a larger project called "Fairfax Corner and Moscow" and is designed to give Russian interns an opportunity to visit and work in the County. Up to 15 interns will be placed in both County government and private industry throughout a two month period. Throughout the internship program, interns will reside with American families who will be responsible for meals and lodging.

Because the interns will be working for Fairfax County, in conjunction with their private experience, and applying what they have learned in private industry to how services are provided in Fairfax County government, and because current policy does not allow health insurance coverage for non-paid employees (the interns are classified as "volunteer interns"), Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board allow the Moscow interns to enroll in the FAIRCHOICE Health Insurance Plan for the two month internship period. She stated that, because the County is self-insured, there will be no fiscal impact unless the interns receive medical benefits and then there will be a negligible fiscal impact.

Chairman Davis relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Alexander and asked that the motion be amended to ask unanimous consent that the Board refer the request to enroll the Moscow interns in the FAIRCHOICE Health Insurance Plan for the two month internship period to staff for its review and to report with recommendations, in the form of a Consideration Item, at the meeting scheduled for October 5, 1992, and this was accepted.

Acting-Chairman Alexander returned the gavel to Chairman Davis.

Without objection, the amended request was so ordered.

She asked unanimous consent that the Board refer the proposal to William Leidinger, County Executive, and James P. McDonald, Deputy County Executive for Management and Budget, for their review and comments.

Supervisor Alexander asked that the request be amended to include that the Board direct staff to discuss and provide a written response to Supervisor Hanley and himself since they will be attending the Metro Committee meeting on September 24, 1992, and this was accepted.

Without objection, the amended request was so ordered.

Supervisor Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

·Report on the number of times that the County has had to condemn property on behalf of someone else, the amount of reimbursements that the County has received for these condemnations, and whether the County has always received those reimbursements; and

SCOOPER" LAW TO ENSURE THAT PET OWNERS

CLEAN UP AFTER THEIR PETS (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hanley stated that over the past several months, she has received complaints from constituents regarding owners who permit their dogs to use other individuals' front yards and common areas for things other than walking. She moved that the Board refer this public nuisance complaint to staff to determine what authority the Board has to encourage pet owners to clean up after their pets and whether legislative authority is needed for Fairfax County to enforce a "Pooper Scooper" law. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova.

Supervisor Bulova stated that the County presently has an "animal trespass" ordinance. She asked that the motion be amended to include that the Board direct staff, when reporting to the Board, to include the definition of this ordinance as well, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, and as amended, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

75.TOWN OF HERNDON'S ANNUAL HISPANIC

76.WAIVER OF FILING FEES REQUESTED FOR

VARIANCE APPLICATION FILED WITH THE

BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS (BZA) FOR

CONSTITUENT ON BUTTER CHURN DRIVE

(Tape 8)

Supervisor Berger called to the Board's attention that one of his constituents, Mr. Edward Stacy, 1380 Butter Churn Drive in Herndon, was notified in March that he was in violation of two provisions of a County ordinance relating to definition of his side yard as a second front yard. The two violations were: 1) having a fence higher than four feet (his fence is six feet in height); and 2) having a shed that cannot be in its present location because sheds are not allowed in a "front yard."

Supervisor Berger briefed Board Members that the fence had been erected in 1984 in its present location and at its present height after approval by the Crestbrook Homes Association. The shed was similarly approved by the Association in early 1991. At this point, Mr. Stacy, acting in good faith, contacted the Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP), Zoning Administration Division, and obtained the height, size, and set-back requirements for the shed. Not aware that he had "two" front yards, he did not ask and was not told of the corner lot code requirements. The shed was installed in the summer of 1991.

Mr. Stacy submitted his application for the variance last June and was advised the filing fee would be $100 for the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) to hear the appeal for the fence; however, the consideration of the shed location would cost $900. Supervisor Berger stated that the levy of a $900 fee to have the matter heard before the BZA places undue hardship on Mr. Stacy, particularly since he is going to have additional expenses due to a survey which is required with the application.

Accordingly, Supervisor Berger moved that the Board waive the $900 shed filing fee so that this matter may proceed for hearing before the BZA. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Trapnell.

Following discussion, Supervisor Bulova asked that the motion be amended to ask unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

·Investigate this matter and report later in the meeting with additional information regarding whether a building permit had been issued to construct the shed; and

·Investigate and report later in the meeting on whether similar situations have previously occurred.

This amendment was accepted.

Following discussion, with input from James Zook, Director, OCP, the amended request was so ordered.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, action was taken on this matter. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#89.)

77.OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT REQUESTED

FOR LOCKWOOD HOUSE (Tape 9)

The Plan Amendment should address allowing additional development on the site in a way that is compatible with the adjacent residential community and also address access and parking issues. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Trapnell and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

78.RESTON'S BLACK ARTS FESTIVAL (Tape 9)

Supervisor Dix briefed Board Members on the success of Reston's Black Arts Festival held this past weekend in Reston. He commended the Reston Black Focus organization for its outstanding work on this festival and expressed his appreciation to Chairman Davis on his attendance and participation.

·Zoning Ordinance Amendment, December 11, 1989 cases.

This motion was seconded by Chairman Davis.

Supervisor Hyland asked that the motion be amended to include the discussion regarding the Lorton 86 bankruptcy issue, and this was accepted.

In response to a query by Chairman Davis, Robert L. Howell, Acting County Attorney, responded that any discussion on B-2 and B-3 would be included.

The question was called on the motion, and as amended, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Supervisor Berger called the Board's attention to the issue discussed earlier in the meeting in which he informed the Board of the situation of Mr. Edward Stacy, who was notified that he was in violation of two provisions of a County ordinance because of the height of his fence and location of his shed.

Supervisor Berger stated that he received a report from staff and was informed that the six-foot fence was in place when Mr. Stacy purchased the house. Also, Mr. Stacy attempted to obtain a building permit for the shed but due to its small size, he was informed by County staff a permit was not necessary. Supervisor Berger also noted that the correct fees are: $110 for a Variance application for the fence and $990 for a Variance application for the shed; however, when two fees are involved, only the higher of the two must be paid.
