39.PLAN AMENDMENT, TYSONS CORNER URBAN CENTER, SUB-UNIT A-3 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Dix said that Pulte Home Corporation and Eaking/Youngentob Associates have a contract to purchase approximately 25 acres located in the southwestern quadrant of the Dulles Airport Access Road and Route 7 which is the portion of the Sherman Tract located east of the Environmental Quality Corridor (EQC). The property is identified as Tax Map Reference 29-1((1))10C pt. and 29-3((1))1A, and is currently zoned in the R-1 and I-4 Districts.

Supervisor Dix explained that the Plan currently recommends the property for residential use at one dwelling unit per acre (du/ac) with an option for "multi-family residential use at 12 to 16 dwelling units per acre, which should yield approximately 525 to 700 multi-family du/ac."

To allow more flexibility regarding the future development of this property, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board authorize an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment to consider modifying the Plan for Sub-Unit A-3 of the Tysons Corner Urban Center to allow as an option residential development which may consist of a mixture of dwelling types at a density of eight to 16 du/ac on the portion of the Sherman Tract located east of the EQC identified on Tax Map Reference 29-1((1))10C pt. and 29-3((1))1A. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell and carried by unanimous vote.

40.FUNDING OF THE WIEHLE AVENUE PROJECT (Tape 7)

Supervisor Dix reminded Board Members that funds were approved in the 1988 Bond Referendum for construction of the Wiehle Avenue project. In response to the public hearing for the 1988 Road Bond Referendum, the Board substituted $5.4 million for Wiehle Avenue for another project (Spring Hill Road) in the proposed Bond Referendum Package. During the design phase of the project it became apparent that the project was underfunded and could not be completed with the limited approved bond funds. Design has been completed on the Wiehle Avenue project for several years and a portion of the project has been constructed on Dranesville Road. However, the main project between Dranesville Road and Reston Parkway has not been constructed. Approximately $1 million remains in the Wiehle Avenue project.

Supervisor Dix said that with the release of the Tentative Allocations for Fiscal Year (FY) 1997-02, it appears that full funding will finally be in place for the northern sections of the Fairfax County Parkway. However, construction of the Parkway will set up an intolerable cut through traffic situation for the residents of single family homes along Shaker Lane and Gilman Lane. These two residential streets will be a direct connection from Reston Parkway to an existing two lane link of Wiehle Avenue which connects to the Fairfax County Parkway.

Supervisor Dix said that over $20 million is available in approved Road Bond funds. These funds are not currently required for active projects and have not been approved for cash flow. Therefore, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to provide a list of potential priority projects Countywide which could be funded utilizing these available Road Bond funds including funding of the Wiehle Avenue project. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Mendelsohn.

Following discussion, with input from William J. Leidinger, County Executive, it was clarified that this item will be included as part of the Board item for the Capital Improvement Project (CIP) scheduled for Board Markup and Adoption on May 20, 1996. The question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

41.TELEPHONE TAX (Tape 7)

Supervisor Dix referred to proposals for additional telephone taxes and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide information related to the proposal for an additional $10 telephone tax so that the Board can determine whether to offer a view on this particular proposal.

Following discussion, Supervisor Dix amended the request to include a request for information regarding "where in the legislative process" is this issue.

Without objection, the request as amended, was so ordered.
