32.WELCOME TO THE BRADDOCK DISTRICT OF

FAIRFAX COUNTY, VIRGINIA, A TRADITION

OF COMMUNITY (Tape 3)

Supervisor Bulova distributed to Board Members copies of a guidebook entitled, Welcome to the Braddock District of Fairfax County, Virginia, a Tradition of Community. She stated that the guidebook was compiled to serve as a general introduction to the cultural amenities and history of the Braddock District as well as a reference resource to the clubs, organizations, churches, parks, libraries, schools, and government services that make Braddock District a thriving and vibrant community.

Supervisor Bulova expressed her appreciation to Supervisor Trapnell because the Braddock District had borrowed "liberally" from the format of the Welcome to Mason District brochure.

33.REQUEST TO THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF

TRANSPORTATION (VDOT) TO ACCELERATE THE

WIDENING OF BRADDOCK ROAD (Tape 3)

Supervisor Bulova stated that Board Members previously have supported her efforts to have the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) make temporary safety improvements to the treacherous stretch of Braddock Road between Route 123 and Shirley Gate Road, which is scheduled to be widened from two to four lanes starting in the summer of 1994. A number of deaths have occurred in the area of "Dead Man's Hill" at Prestwick Lane. The situation has become worse now that Shirley Gate Road has been improved and connected to Waples Mill Road. Braddock Road's narrow roller coaster lanes are serving as part of a bypass around the City of Fairfax and as one of the most direct routes to the Government Center.

In response to the Board's request, VDOT has installed a blinking caution light and has done some advance land acquisition in order to clear intersections to improve the sight distance in the area.

Oil tankers enroute to the tank farm and large trash trucks enroute to the I-95 landfill are regular users of the road. Supervisor Bulova stated that the Board has supported her efforts to divert through truck traffic from this stretch of Braddock Road until it has been improved but she is having trouble identifying an alternate route, as required by VDOT, for the trucks. At the last City of Fairfax/Fairfax County Regional Subcommittee meeting, Supervisor Bulova reported that this concern was discussed. A potential alternate truck route for the trash trucks would be Judicial Drive in the City of Fairfax; however, this road was not constructed to support heavy truck loads and has an eight-ton eight limit. If the City of Fairfax were to allow a temporary lifting of the weight limit until Braddock Road improvements are completed in 1996, the County would be asked in return to fund the restoration of Judicial Drive.

Clearly the best solution to this dangerous situation is to move forward with the widening of Braddock Road as quickly as possible. Supervisor Bulova distributed to Board Members copies of a letter from Mayor John Mason, City of Fairfax, to Ray Pethtel, Commissioner, VDOT, supporting the early construction and completion of the Braddock Road project.

Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board communicate to Mr. Pethtel the County's desire to complete the improvements to Braddock Road, between Route 123 and Shirley Gate Road, ahead of the current 1994 schedule. In addition, she stated, as Mayor Mason points out in his letter, the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 provides that 10 percent of Surface Transportation Program Funds be set aside for safety construction activities. If Mr. Pethtel reports that, in order to advance this project out of turn, the acceleration would affect other Fairfax County projects, Supervisor Bulova further moved that the Board direct staff to report with this information for the Board's further consideration and direction. The second to this motion was inaudible. The question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix being out of the room, Supervisor Alexander being absent.

34.BOARD MATTERS BY SUPERVISOR CHRISTINE TRAPNELL,

MASON DISTRICT (Tape 3)

Supervisor Trapnell stated that a Board Matter that she had planned to present to Board Members at today's meeting needed clarification and she would present the item at the Board of Supervisors' meeting scheduled for December 14, 1992.

37.STATUS OF KAY/CIT ZONING CASE (Tape 4)

Supervisor Berger said that on Wednesday evening, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is holding a public information meeting which will include the issue of the timetable on Phase II of the Western Regional Park-and-Ride Study. He said that it is his intent to wait and hear from VDOT as to when the Board can expect definite answers on the Park-and-Ride Study so that the Board can proceed with the zoning case.

Supervisor Berger said that not knowing what VDOT's plans are is making it very difficult to negotiate a final solution to this case. He noted that the zoning case received a negative staff recommendation and a "no" vote from the Planning Commission. He added that as of today every outstanding issue has been resolved except for the use of land dedication for the park-and-ride lot. He stated that the Office of Transportation has requested dedication of 16 acres from the applicant based on a number from Phase I of the VDOT Study.

Supervisor Berger said that Study indicates that the goal is a structured parking facility for 1200 to 1300 cars on 16 acres. He pointed out that the calculations indicate that this would be the largest park-and-ride lot in America serving nearly 20,000 vehicles.

Supervisor Berger distributed to Board Members two letters regarding this issue. He said that hopefully next week he would be able to report with a time certain for a public hearing to be held by the Board on this zoning case.

46.PUT CASH INTO THE POCKETS OF LOW INCOME

FAMILIES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that Earned Income Credit (EIC) is a tax credit for low-income working families with children. Created by Congress in 1975, the EIC was designed to offset the regressive impact that Social Security payroll taxes have on low-income working families. The EIC also serves as an incentive to work.

Supervisor Hyland said that the EIC is a tax credit that is paid to low-income families just like a tax refund for working families that had income of less than $22,370 in 1992 and at least one child living at home for more than half of the year. The credit is available both to married and single parents. Even families that earn too little to owe federal income tax can be eligible for the EIC.

Supervisor Hyland said that as elected officials, Board Members have the opportunity to advertise this available credit and work incentive. He suggested requesting staff to advertise this program through a press release as well as giving it to the School newsletter for their inclusion, putting it at the assessment offices, police stations and the libraries. For further information and details, interested individuals can contact the Center of Budget and Policy Priorities, 777 North Capitol Street, NW, Suite 705, Washington D.C. or call Allison Pion at 202 408-1080.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to advertise the availability of the EIC. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix being out of the room, Supervisor Alexander being absent.

47.CARJACKING (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that during a Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) Human Services and Public Safety meeting there was a presentation made regarding the carjacking episodes that are occurring in the metropolitan region. A carjacking involves direct confrontation between the thief and the driver with the potential of loss of life. As a result of these numerous incidents (468 from January through September, 1992 for the region), H.R. 4542 was signed into law in October giving local jurisdictions power to enforce this crime as a federal offense.

Supervisor Hyland said that he would like to ensure that Fairfax County residents have as much protection as possible concerning this crime.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to:

·Review Fairfax County's current laws and enforcement procedures for carjacking penalties to determine if County laws are as strong as the new law allows; and

·Report with its determination and recommendations as quickly as possible.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell.

Following discussion, Supervisor Hyland amended the motion to include directing staff to distribute the prevention tips flyer to all libraries, police stations, assessments offices and to prepare a press release on this matter of concern. The question was carried on the motion, as amended, and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix being out of the room, Supervisor Alexander being absent.

48.MASON NECK HERITAGE RESOURCES OVERLAY DISTRICT

(Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland said that Mason Neck, located in the Mount Vernon District along the shores of the Potomac and Occoquan Rivers, is characterized by an arrangement of habitats that is unique to Fairfax County. During the three year land use review process it was determined that there is a need to more adequately protect this fragile area. In 1991 the Board approved establishing the first Heritage Resources Overlay District in the County that will identify and preserve ecologically sensitive areas, historical sites, scenic views and archaeological resources areas. Since the adoption of the plan, the Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP) began its work to establish the Overlay District but has often been diverted from this important project. He said that he had received a letter from the Friends of Historic Colchester requesting this project be expedited.

Supervisor Hyland stated that because of the evolving development on Mason Neck and the expansion of the 100+ acres of the Lower Potomac Pollution Control Plant, it has become very apparent that much of what the County is trying to preserve could be lost, thus giving this project a sense of true urgency to complete.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to put the Mason Neck Heritage Resources Overlay District back on their priority list and to complete this important task within the next three months and return with the draft document. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova.

Following discussion, with input from James P. Zook, Director, OCP, Supervisor Hyland amended the motion to direct staff to report with a status report which includes developing options and a timetable by the end of January 1993.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Alexander being absent.

49.INOVA HEALTH SYSTEMS WHITE PAPER ON

HEALTH CARE REFORM (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland said that he recently received a copy of the INOVA Health Systems White Paper on Health Care Reform.

Supervisor Hyland said that some of the solutions INOVA has proposed related to cost containment and access based on the following four principles:

·Health Care reform initiatives must be equitable to all segments of the health care arena -- employers and employees, patients, providers, physicians and all other health care professionals;

·The actions taken must require a contribution of the solution from all elements as well;

·The actions must redirect, reallocate and redistribute current dollars; and

·The actions should exhibit a profound bias toward primary care and prevention of health illness and injury.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board request Board Members to review this document and give their reactions to Supervisor Hyland to send to INOVA Health Systems. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Regarding the three projects listed on Page Three under the Fairfax County Parkway, Transportation--Regional Funding, Supervisor Dix moved to amend the motion to have staff include a discussion and review of the segment of the Parkway from Sunset Hills Road to Route 7 for consideration of inclusion in the dollar amount.

Chairman Davis relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman McConnell and moved to change the amendment to add the language "...should other revenues remain available," and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman McConnell returned the gavel to Chairman Davis.
