Chairman Davis informed the Board that the Pimmit Hills subdivision is in need of additional funds to complete the construction of their sidewalks. Phases I-III have already been completed; however, additional funding is needed to complete Phases IV-V.

Chairman Davis relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Alexander and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to address restoring the funding for Pimmit Hills sidewalks and report to the Board at the next meeting on its status, with the possibility of making it a Consideration Item in the budget process. Without objection, it was so ordered.

66. GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITY (GMU) WOMEN'S HEALTH FORUM TO BE HELD ON MARCH 2, 1994 (Tape 13)

Supervisor Davis announced that the George Mason University (GMU) Center for Health Policy, College of Nursing and Health Science, will hold its first forum on women's health on Wednesday, March 2, 1994.

67. STATUS OF TAXPAYER CUSTOMER SERVICE BY TELEPHONE (Tape 13)

Supervisor Davis informed the Board of his review last year of the County's tax administration system. He stated that he had inquired about the service received by taxpayers who call or visit government offices regarding taxes owed to Fairfax County. He stated that his office had received numerous complaints from citizens who were kept on hold for long periods of time, transferred from place to place, and who sometimes could not get answers to questions.

Supervisor Davis stated that he had recommended that a review be conducted of the customer service procedures of the Offices of Finance and Assessments, with a goal toward eliminating duplication of effort, and making the system more "customer friendly."

Supervisor Davis complimented the County Executive for his prompt follow-up in setting up a task force of senior staff to review these matters and stated his understanding that staff has developed a number of recommendations to improve service. He stated that he had received a memorandum last fall prepared by the Office of Assessments indicating that the "benchmark" standard for incoming taxpayer telephone calls is a wait of no longer than three minutes, at which time additional staff are applied to handle overloads.

Supervisor Davis informed the Board of an article appearing in last week's Washington Times discussing regional efforts to streamline personal property and decal procedures. The article quoted two citizens in a companion article who encountered great difficulty in obtaining corrected assessments and tax bills from the County. In addition to this, Supervisor Davis stated that his office just received a letter from a taxpayer who spoke of being kept waiting on the telephone for 15 minutes, and then being transferred multiple times resulting in additional delays and confusion.

In light of the County's recent decision to streamline personal property tax and decal procedures, Supervisor Davis moved that the Board direct staff to obtain and report the status of combining or integrating customer service functions of the Assessments and Finance Offices, and minimizing waiting time for taxpayers who call for information or assistance. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Berger and carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Trapnell being out of the room.

68. STATUS OF RETAIL IN INDUSTRIAL ZONES (Tape 13)

Supervisor Davis asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide a status report on Retail in Industrial Zones at the next meeting of the Board. Without objection, it was so ordered.

generously contributed his time, energy, knowledge, and expertise to the Reston community and to all of Fairfax County. He has testified before the Board on numerous occasions, and his dedication and interest in development and transportation issues is known countywide.

Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Stowers to a future Board meeting so that the Board can officially commend him for his service to Reston and Fairfax County and acknowledge his tenure as Chairman of the Reston Planning and Zoning Committee. Without objection, it was so ordered.

70. OZONE TRANSPORT COMMISSION AND LOW EMISSION VEHICLES

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

Supervisor Dix further moved that the Board authorize a request for the Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Virginia to render a legal opinion regarding the constitutional nature of the authority of EPA, at the recommendation of the Ozone Transport Commission, to impose mandated requirements on states, particularly when an individual state legislature has already rejected the measure through its legislative process. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Berger.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Hanley, and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Supervisor Alexander stated that two previously approved Exxon Corporation projects in Lee District have been the subject of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) requests for significant entrance realignments during Site Plan processing, resulting in relocation and reorientation of pump islands to a degree that requires an amendment to the Special Exception Application. Exxon has agreed to make these changes at great expense and loss of time. Based upon the cause and nature of the requested changes with these Special Exception Amendment Applications, Supervisor Alexander moved that the Board direct staff to:

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

72. EXPEDITED PROCESSING FOR THE SITE PLAN FOR THE FAIRFAX COUNTY REDEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING AUTHORITY'S (FCRHA) ELDERLY HOUSING PROJECT IN MANCHESTER LAKES (Tape 14)

Supervisor Alexander moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the Site Plan for the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority's (FCRHA) elderly housing project in Manchester Lakes.

Supervisor Alexander said that it is in the best interest of the County to expedite the Site Plan. This new housing will provide moderately priced housing for the elderly in an area that it is desperately needed.

Supervisor Alexander said that the applicant understands that this neither provides him with a vested right in the Plan approval or relieves him from the responsibility of any Plan modifications as a result of Board or staff review.

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

73. SCHEDULING OF A PUBLIC HEARING ON REZONING APPLICATION RZ 81-S-075, A PLAN AMENDMENT AND A PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION (Tape 14)

Supervisor Alexander stated that at the January 24, 1994, Board Meeting, the Board authorized a March 21, 1994 public hearing on a Board's Own Motion expedited Proffered Condition Amendment Application on Rezoning Application RZ-C-526. He explained that this motion was made in order to evaluate the permanent access at the Fullerton gate that intersects with Rolling Road. He corrected that case number which is Rezoning Application RZ 81-S-075, not the one previously mentioned. He added that it should be noted that a Plan Amendment is required to allow permanent access to Rolling Road.

Therefore, Supervisor Alexander moved that the Board:

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

74. PICKETT ROAD TANK FARM (Tape 14)

Supervisor Hanley stated that at its November 15, 1993 meeting, the Board voted unanimously to authorize the County Attorney to initiate and pursue any appropriate litigation against Star Enterprise to recover property taxes lost to the County due to the reduction in property value assessments caused by the petroleum leak emanating from Star's Pickett Road Tank Farm. It was recently reported that despite the Board's November action, the County Attorney has not filed suit against Star.

Supervisor Hanley explained that following the Board's action, the County Attorney's Office has been actively negotiating with Star about the lost tax revenue. She said that that office has informed her that they are near what they believe to be a favorable settlement with Star, which they would bring back to the Board for ultimate approval.

Supervisor Hanley noted that as a general matter, authorizing the County Attorney to file suit often produces favorable settlements for the County, settlements that eliminate the need to file suit. The fact that the County Attorney has not actually filed suit against Star should by no means be taken as an indication that the County is not serious about

recovering the property taxes owed to it, that it has an unsupported position, or that the County will not file suit if necessary. The County is serious about collecting lost property revenues and other funds owed to it by Star.

75. FAIRFAX COUNTY VOLUNTEER FIRE AND RESCUE DEPARTMENTS MISSION STATEMENT (Tape 14)

Supervisor Hanley stated that she had received the Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department's Mission Statement. She distributed a copy to Board Members and said that the Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department suggested that the Board ratify the Mission Statement and reenforce their position and work.

Therefore, Supervisor Hanley moved acceptance and agreement of the Fairfax County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department's Mission Statement. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being out of the room.

76. USE OF COUNTY GOVERNMENT CENTER BY CIVIC ASSOCIATIONS (Tape 14)

Supervisor Hanley stated that at its January 24, 1994 meeting, the Providence District Council approved the Resolution (distributed to Board Members) on the proposed regulations governing the use of and cost of the County Government Center by official, County and other groups.

Supervisor Hanley said that the Providence District Council believes that the civic, citizens and homeowner associations should be allowed to use the County facility on a space available basis without charge since they are comprised of County taxpayers who are paying for these facilities and their operations.

77. IMPACT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH REDUCTIONS (Tape 14)

Supervisor Hanley distributed to Board Members a copy of a letter from the Department of Health and she asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review and comment on the letter to determine the impact of the reductions proposed by the Department of Health, specifically whether the reductions will affect the health of Fairfax County citizens. Without objection, it was so ordered.

78. CENTER FOR MULTICULTURAL HUMAN SERVICES TO BE CONSIDERED FOR BUDGET CONSIDERATION AND DISCUSSION (Tape 14)

Supervisor Hanley distributed to Board Members a copy of a letter from the Center for Multicultural Human Services and she asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to consider the letter during his budget deliberations. Without objection, it was so ordered.

79. WHIP ANTENNAS ON TOP OF WATER TANKS (Tape 14)

Supervisor Hanley referred to a letter from the Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP), Zoning Administration Division, to a mobile communications Company regarding the ability to put whip antennas on top of the Willston Water Tank and the Lewinsville water tank. She said that it has been interpreted as a governmental use; therefore, they can automatically put their antenna on someone else's tank without any review.

Therefore, Supervisor Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review this issue as a policy matter to determine if this is a correct interpretation that this is a "by right" use on someone else's water tank. Without objection, it was so ordered.

80. REQUEST FOR ACCEPTANCE OF RECORD PLATS, SUBDIVISION PLANS, SITE PLANS AND ANY OTHER NECESSARY SUBMISSIONS FOR REVIEW DURING THE PROCESSING OF PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATIONS PCA 86-P-089-2, PCA 86-W-001-5 AND FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN AMENDMENT APPLICATION FDPA 86-W-001-3 (Tape 14)

Supervisor Frey stated that Stoneybrook Associates Limited Partnership, an entity of the Charles E. Smith Companies, has recently filed three concurrent applications on Land Bay A of the Fairfax County Government Center. The applicant has the option to purchase and develop Land Bay A and proposes a modification of the approved plans to permit residential development. Should the applications be approved, the applicant desires to commence construction as soon as possible.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) to accept Record Plats, Subdivision Plans, Site Plans and any other necessary submissions for review during the processing of the following applications:

86-W-001-3.

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

81. APPRECIATION TO THE DEPARTMENT OF ANIMAL CONTROL FOR ITS EXPEDITIOUS REACTION (Tape 14)

Supervisor Frey stated that he has a copy of a letter from the President of the Little Rocky Run Homeowners Association to Chief Warden Dennis Reed, Department of Animal Control, expressing his appreciation to:

for their expeditious reaction to a situation that occurred in December 1993 when a dog attacked two children in the neighborhood.

Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to ensure that the letter of commendation be placed in these individuals' personnel files. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Frey said that for more information about how to attend, interested individuals should call the Box Office at 354-1615.

85. RIDECHOICES/METROCHECK PROGRAM (Tape 14)

On behalf of Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Frey stated that an article appeared in the January 21st edition of the Courier regarding the County's RIDECHOICES program. He reminded Board Members that this program, sponsored by the Office of Transportation, provides incentives for employees working at the Government Center complex to carpool, vanpool or take the bus or rail.

Supervisor Frey said that there had been several inquiries from County employees asking why this opportunity is not being offered to County employees working in locations other than the Government Center complex, such as the Massey Building.

Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report on the possibility of extending this program to employees working in locations other than the Government Center. Without objection, it was so ordered.

88. PERSONNEL REGULATIONS REGARDING THE REDUCTION IN FORCE (RIF) PROCEDURE AND SEVERANCE PAY (Tape 15)

Supervisor Trapnell stated that the Employees Advisory Council (EAC) has brought to the attention of the Board an issue with respect to the implementation of the Reduction In Force (RIF) procedure as the County privatizes the West Ox Facility. Specifically, the current Personnel Regulations state that employees who decline a County placement or bumping offer forfeit severance pay. This creates an inequity because placement offers for County positions are made first to the most senior employees being "RIF'ed."

To correct this inequity, Supervisor Trapnell moved that the Board:

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

89. MOUNT VERNON'S SEVENTH ANNUAL TOWN MEETING CONSIDERED "BEST EVER" BY CITIZENS (Tape 15)

Supervisor Hyland said that despite cold and residual icy conditions, more than 225 citizens from the Mount Vernon vicinity attended the Seventh Annual Town Meeting at Mount Vernon High School's "Little Theatre" Auditorium. Comments received from those who attended this year's event were glowing.

For contributing to this successful outcome, Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter and expressed his appreciation to the following individuals:

Supervisor Hyland explained that the principal concern for citizens this year has been the quality and substance of the educational system and process. From parents concerned about the lack of a Gifted/Talented Center in Area I to those with special needs students, it was clear that this subject represented a priority for them. He said that in contrast with this, some citizens expressed great satisfaction with the school system and were grateful for the amenities offered residents of Fairfax County.

Supervisor Hyland said that another issue of importance to citizens, was the need to not only contain, but rather to reduce crime in the Route One Corridor. In response to the presentation on Focus 2000, speakers indicated a greater need for police presence in the Corridor and adjacent businesses and communities.

Supervisor Hyland announced that on Wednesday, March 9, 1994 at 7:30 p.m. at the Mount Vernon Government Center, he will conduct a Conference on Crime in the Route One Corridor and will be asking citizens to share their concerns and ideas for addressing the needs in this area.

Supervisor Hyland said that the Human Services Redesign and its impact on Region I consumers was on the front burner for many citizens. The Human Services Redesign Meeting will be held on Saturday, March 26, 1994 at 9:00 a.m. in the Community Room of the Mount Vernon Government Center.

Supervisor Hyland noted that in addition to County legislators, officials and representatives, Congressman Jim Moran of the Eighth Congressional District, State Senators Joe Gartlan (36th District) and Robert Calhoun (30th District) along with Delegates Toddy Puller (44th District), Marian Van Landingham (45th District), and David Albo (42nd District) were present.

90. REQUEST BOARD RECOGNITION FOR PARTICIPANTS OF ADOPT-A-FAMILY PROGRAM (Tape 15)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matters which stated that the "Adopt-A-Family" Program, sponsored by the County's Department of Community Action (DCA), provides new clothing, toys, food and seasonal decorations to low-income families throughout Fairfax County. To qualify for the program, the client families must meet eligible income guidelines. The income level for a family of four may not exceed $17,938. Non-profit, community-based organizations, acting as delegate agencies, provide a variety of services to low-income families through programs developed by the DCA.

Supervisor Hyland stated that during last year's holiday season, many corporations, businesses, individuals and various County agencies sponsored needy families. Working with delegate agencies, DCA matched selected families with the participating sponsors. The sponsors raised funding within their own groups to provide the gifts or, in some cases, donated funds for volunteers to shop, wrap and deliver.

Supervisor Hyland explained that gifts are delivered to the delegate agencies on an assigned date before Christmas and the families pick them up from the delegates. In some cases, groups may choose to maintain a relationship with the family they adopt and continue to provide assistance throughout the year, buying birthday gifts and back-to-school clothes for the children.

Supervisor Hyland said that for the 1993 holiday season, there was an estimated value of donations in the amount of $220,000 generously provided by 240 sponsors which included companies and associations, some Fairfax County agencies, groups from schools, colleges, health organizations, churches, and individuals.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to invite all participants in the 1993 Adopt-A-Family Program to appear before the Board of Supervisors to receive recognition for their generous efforts on behalf of others. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being out of the room.

91. ISSUANCE OF FREE VEHICLE REGISTRATION DECALS REQUESTED FOR ACTIVE MEMBERS OF VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENTS (Tape 15)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matters which stated that at its recent regular monthly meeting, the Volunteer Fire Commission discussed the possibility of the issuance of free Fairfax County decals for vehicles owned by active members of the Volunteer Fire Department.

Supervisor Hyland said that the Code of Virginia addresses this under Paragraph 46.2-752, Titling and Registration of Motor Vehicles, Article 11, State and Local Motor Vehicle Registration.

Accordingly, because of the extraordinary service provided the citizens of Fairfax County by the Volunteer Fire Departments, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board tentatively approve the Volunteer Fire Commission's request by exercising Paragraph 46.2-752 of the Code of Virginia and issuing free registration decals for vehicles owned by active members of volunteer fire departments subject to a review by staff. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hanley and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being out of the room.

92. MOUNT VERNON CHRONICLE PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY FOR CITIZENS TO CALL IN QUESTIONS ABOUT THE WOODROW WILSON BRIDGE IMPROVEMENT STUDY (Tape 15)

Supervisor Hyland said that on Tuesday, February 22, 1994 at 7:00 p.m., he will be conducting a live interview on Channel 16 concerning the latest information on the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Improvement Study (WWBIS). He added that his guests will include Dave Gendell of the Federal Highway Administration and Chairman of the WWBIS Coordination Committee.

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matters which explained that the purpose of the broadcast is two-fold -- first, to brief viewers on the current status of study, particularly the citizen participation process; secondly, to answer questions called in by the public.

Supervisor Hyland stated that the program will be taped and aired again on Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. and again on Fridays and Sundays at 3:00 p.m.

Citizens who wish to become involved should call the Study and Design Center at 703-519-9800 and ask that they be assigned to one or more of the following focus groups:

93. CLEAN FAIRFAX COUNTY, INCORPORATED PROCLAMATION KEEP FAIRFAX COUNTY BEAUTIFUL MONTHS AND EARTH CARING MONTHS (Tape 15)

Supervisor Hyland said that he has received a letter from Clean Fairfax County, Incorporated, once again requesting that the Board proclaim April and May as "Keep Fairfax County Beautiful" and "Earth Caring" months. He said that many events are being planned, such as road clean-ups, adopt-a-stream clean-ups, reforestation projects, and soil erosion projects. These events involve many residents who are working together to make Fairfax County cleaner, more beautiful and helping with attaining the environmental standards that are prized in Fairfax County.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

94. LOCATION SIGNAGE FOR THE TOWN OF LORTON (Tape 15)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matters which stated that he had received a letter from the President of the Lorton Ruritan Club, Phil Brooks, and the President of the Federation of Lorton Communities, Lorrie Frost, requesting that signs be erected along the highways coming into the Lorton area identifying Lorton, Virginia as well as its sister town of Lorton, England. For example, the signs along I-95 Exit 161 fails to mention this area; rather, it says Fort Belvoir and Mount Vernon many miles away. This same oversight is observed when traveling north on Route One crossing the Occoquan River. These large green locator signs fail to recognize the Town of Lorton.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board request the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to review the signage along all vicinity highways to determine where and how designations can be made for the Town of Lorton. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hanley and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Trapnell being out of the room.

95. EMPLOYER-ASSISTED HOME-BUYING FORUM SPONSORED BY FAIRFAX COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE (Tape 15)

Supervisor Hyland announced that the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce is holding a forum at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, February 10, 1993 in the Government Center to discuss how employers can assist their employees in buying a home in the County.

Supervisor McConnell expressed her appreciation to Verdia L. Haywood, Deputy County Executive for Human Services, and his staff for their work with the members of the community to produce the best system for serving the children and their parents.

Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to follow through on this issue. Without objection, it was so ordered.

97. SCHOOL BOOKS (Tape 15)

Supervisor McConnell called the Board's attention to an article that appeared in the Washington Post last Monday concerning school books going to the Philippines instead of local schools in the United States.

Supervisor McConnell said that there was a request for these books in Dallas County, Alabama (a very poor income school district) to have the books sent there, but the School System did not have the money for transportation.

Supervisor McConnell said that Robert R. Spillane, District Superintendent, School System, has agreed to send the books to Dallas County if transportation could be provided.

Supervisor McConnell reported that many citizens volunteered to drive trucks, to pay for the books to be sent, among other things and that transportation plans are in the process of being finalized.

Supervisor McConnell stated that there are many schools in the United States that could benefit from the books. She said that a meeting will be scheduled with all concerned businesses and citizens to address the issue and establish a central distribution clearinghouse. She invited all Board Members to attend the meeting.

Supervisor McConnell expressed her appreciation to all the individuals who called her office and offered their assistance and to Congressman Earl Hillards (Representative of Dallas County).

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to contact the Virginia Department of Education regarding this issue. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Berger stated that there is opposition from community and citizens associations' to streetlights in planned developments in the upper McLean/Great Falls area of the Dranesville District.

Following discussion, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review whether staff has the legal authority to waive the requirements of the Public Facilities Manual (PFM) which would require a developer to install streetlights in a new subdivision. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Davis relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman McConnell and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review the Board's criteria for streetlights and return it as an Information Item. Without objection, it was so ordered.

"WHEREAS, Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 77-D-053 was approved by the Board of Supervisors on March 8, 1993 to allow driveway access to serve Tax Map Number 31-3(1) Parcel 33 to be relocated from Carlin Lane to Chowning Place through Tax Map Parcel 31-3(36) Parcel A-1, which is owned by the Board of Supervisors, in accordance with the Carlin Lane Road Improvement Project; and

WHEREAS, the Rezoning Application RZ 93-D-039 has been recently filed by David Booth to rezone Parcel 33 consisting of 1.158 acres from the R-1 District to the R-2 District in order to develop two (2) single family detached units at a density of 1.72 dwelling units per acre; and

WHEREAS, the submitted Generalized Development Plan (GDP) proposes a second driveway access point onto Chowning Place across Tax Map Number Parcel A-1; and

WHEREAS, the proffer approved by the Board of Supervisors pursuant to PCA 77-D-053 must be amended in order to allow a second driveway access onto Chowning Place; and

WHEREAS, the promotion of safe access to Chowning Place rather than reinstituting access to Carlin Lane and the public convenience, general welfare and good zoning practice may require that the proffer approved with Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 77-D-053 be amended to allow a second driveway onto Chowning Place:

NOW, THEREFORE, the Board of Supervisors directs staff to advertise and schedule concurrently with Rezoning Application RZ 93-D-039 a Board's Own Motion Proffered Condition Amendment to PCA 77-D-053 to amend the proffers as they apply to Tax Map Number 31-3(36) Parcel A-1 so that a second driveway access may be permitted across Parcel A-1."

Supervisor Berger reminded Board Members that the Transportation Advisory Commission (TAC) established a Transit-TDM working group last fall to identify portions of the Zoning Ordinance where refinements might be made to make developments more transit friendly. The working group consists of members of the Transportation Advisory Commission, the Planning Commission, citizen representatives of various County organizations, and staff personnel.

Supervisor Berger informed Board Members that the TAC has now forwarded the first two recommendations of the working group for proposed amendments to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 112 (Zoning Ordinance).

Supervisor Berger said that the TAC request is that the Board now authorize the staff to undertake analysis and staff coordination of the two proposals and to put them in the format in which proposed amendments are normally presented to the Board for authorization of public hearings. When that has been accomplished the amendments will be returned to the Board for approval of public hearings and referral to the Planning Commission.

Therefore, Supervisor Berger moved that the Board authorize staff to commence analysis of the two proposed amendments and return them to the Board with its recommendations. This motion was seconded by Chairman Davis and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being out of the room.
