This morning the Board recognized INOVA and the County Council for their important efforts to prevent teenagers from experimenting with cigarettes. INOVA also offers cessation clinics at various locations for teenagers and others who want to quit smoking. However, presently there are no clinics available in the schools. A series of such clinics for students on site in their own schools could be administered through clinic aides and their nurse supervisors once each semester. INOVA has already expressed its enthusiasm to be part of such an effort. Their expertise and experience in this area will be invaluable.

Supervisor Connolly informed the Board that on November 5, 1995 the Park Authority, in cooperation with the Vienna Jaycees and a Boy Scout troop, constructed and dedicated the first accessible garden plot at Nottoway Park. This one-of-a-kind project provides gardening opportunities to those citizens who wish to garden but due to their physical limitations or age, can not maintain a ground level plot. The park houses six planned garden plots with walkways and watering facilities to provide equal access to the physically disabled population as well as senior citizens.

This accessible park represents the first to be built in Fairfax County and reflects an extraordinary effort and commitment on the part of the Park Authority, Vienna Jaycees and Boy Scouts.

The applicant wishes to commence final engineering and submit plans to the Fairfax County Department of Environmental Management (DEM) as soon as possible.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of DEM to accept a preliminary plan, subdivision plat, and any other plans, plats, or drawings as may be appropriate for concurrent and simultaneous processing with Rezoning Application RZ 95-P-045. Supervisor Connolly noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards, and it does not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way.

This venture could save the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) as much as one million dollars, but Frito Lay must guarantee to VDOT that the material will be available to them so that it can be reflected in the VDOT Request for Proposal (RFP).
