51.AUTHORIZATION TO ISSUE A ONE-TIME PERMIT FOR THE PROPOSED RELOCATION OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA ELECTRIC CO-OP DISTRIBUTION LINES IN CONFEDERATE RIDGE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey called the Board's attention to the issue they previously discussed regarding Northern Virginia Electric Co-op (NOVEC) and the desire, by the citizens, to have an overhead distribution line moved out of their backyards in Confederate Ridge. NOVEC wants to relocate the line but will not agree to sign the standard permit form because it takes away the rights they believe they currently have in the prescriptive easement where the line is presently located. NOVEC has committed, in writing, that if the County would agree to a non-standard permit, that they would not consider this one project as precedential to any other dealings with Fairfax County.

Because of the unique and special circumstances involving this proposed relocation, and the benefit it would provide to long-time residents in Confederate Ridge and future residents in Compton Ridge, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize staff to issue a one-time permit for the proposed relocation of NOVEC distribution lines in Confederate Ridge which would delete the aspect of revocation from the permit language upon submission of an application by NOVEC for this specific project.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

62.DRUG ELIMINATION GRANT FUNDS FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT (HUD) (Tape 10)

Chairman Hanley stated that it has been brought to her attention that the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) will not receive any Drug Elimination Grant Funds from the United States (U.S.) Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the next fiscal year. Fairfax County is the only jurisdiction in the region that is not expected to receive these grant funds. Since the initiation of the grant in 1991, this grant has paid for more than $500,000 in additional police presence on public housing developments in Reston, Falls Church, Centreville, Fairfax, and West Ford. In addition to increased police presence, these funds are used to support an array of community-based prevention programs to combat drug use and sales in public housing sites. Loss of these funds will jeopardize the County's efforts to keep its housing safe for its residents.

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to send a letter to the Secretary of the HUD, Henry Cisneros, conveying the Board's objection to any loss of funds in the next fiscal year and requesting a reconsideration of this funding based on HUD's own recognition of the County's outstanding performance for the past five years in eliminating drug use and sales in public housing. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Hyland, and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

63.AWARDS FOR THE HOUSING AUTHORITY AND THE FAIRFAX COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT (Tape 10)

Chairman Hanley informed the Board of a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, October 3, 1996 in which the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) was honored as one of the top housing authorities in the nation. The FCRHA and

the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) received a Housing Performance Award, conferred by the United States (U.S.) Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) annually to a select number of housing authorities to acknowledge their "outstanding accomplishments in providing decent, safe and affordable housing."

Chairman Hanley stated that Fairfax County was recognized in the category of Sustained Performance Awards. The award was conferred for achieving a score of 90 or above (out of 100 points) under the Public Housing Management Assessment Program, thereby earning the coveted designation of "higher performer" for the fifth year in a row. The annual audit covers such areas as modernization of public housing stock, housing management and maintenance, financial management and housing development. The FCRHA continues to excel in all areas.

Chairman Hanley congratulated both the FCRHA and the DHCD for this award.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board endorse the comments on proposed revisions to the Fire Programs, Policies, and Codes prepared by the Fire and Rescue Department. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion which CARRIED by a recorded vote of six, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Mendelsohn abstaining, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

67.AVAILABILITY OF MEDIA GENERAL CABLE CHANNEL 39 (Tape 10)

Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to a letter she had received from School Board Chairman Kristen Amundson, copies of which were distributed to the Board. Ms. Amundson was requesting $413,000 of Media General Cable funds be used to make Media General Cable Channel 39, currently a closed circuit "teacher's channel," available for home reception. Such a change would enable parents to tune in to many of the same programs that their children' teachers view, improving their understanding of what goes on in their schools and classroom. Chairman Hanley stated her understanding that there is a substantial balance available in Subfund 157.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a Consideration Item for the availability of Media General Cable Channel 39 for the Fiscal Year (FY) 1997 Midyear Review. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova.

Following discussion, Acting-Chairman Dix relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide information regarding:

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board recognize the hard work and outstanding achievements of the James Madison High School Marching Band by presenting an appropriate Certificate of Recognition at the Board meeting on November 18, 1996. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to check the schedule for musical groups to present noon time holiday concerts in the Atrium. Without objection, it was so ordered.

70.REVIEW OF THE TOWN CENTER CONCEPT PLANS FOR THE ORACLE AND BDM DEVELOPMENTS IN RESTON (Tape 10)

Supervisor Dix informed Board members of Oracle's recent plans for corporate relocation, consolidation and expansion within the 23 acres known as Reston Section 95, Block 2, located in the northeast corner of the intersection of Dulles Toll Road, Reston Parkway and Sunset Hills Road. Oracle proposed to construct, initially, a 220,000 square foot office building. This site has approval for, and Oracle anticipates, ultimately building a campus of 725,000 square feet of office development. The initial building, site developments and land for the Oracle Development itself will cost approximately $48-$50 million. Oracle anticipates close to 1,000 employees within its first phase, with ultimate development potential for between 3,000 to 4,000 employees over the next 10 years.

Supervisor Dix further announced that BDM Developments in Reston also recently announced plans to relocate their corporate offices to the northwest corner of the Toll Road, Reston Parkway, and Sunset Hills Road within the 15 acres known as Reston Section 939. BDM proposes to construct its office campus in phases. The initial building will probably consist of approximately 250,000 square feet and 1,000 employees. The cost of this initial phase is estimated to be approximately $50 million. BDM has the capability to add an additional building for a total of 425,000 square feet of development on that site.

Supervisor Dix stated that along with these two major development projects, Reston Land will be constructing the related transportation improvements along Sunset Hills Road. It is proposing improvements to Reston Parkway which will include additional lane capacity and bridging Reston Parkway over the WOD trail. The estimated value of these transportation improvements associated with the economic development prospects announcements in along the order of $6 million. Oracle and BDM's decisions to relocate to Reston and Dulles Corridor are based in part on our commitment to work closely with these corporations and County staff to ensure that the County's review process will proceed on a time track that will accommodate their needs while fulfilling all of the obligations of the County process.

78.JOINT REQUEST TO HAVE COUNTY ATTORNEY INVESTIGATE POSSIBILITY OF TAKING LEGAL ACTION AGAINST ROUTE ONE MOTEL OWNERS (Tape 11)

On behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman stated that he and Supervisor Hyland have had concerns over the state of rundown motels on the Route One Corridor, not only from the standpoint of appearance but because of the tawdry activities which are spawned at these locations.

Accordingly, on behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to determine if there is a legal basis on which to bring these motel owners into court because the uses exercised in their facilities are not the ones for which they were originally intended and granted permission to operate, constitute a public nuisance and are a threat to the public health and safety of the community.

79.JOINT REQUEST TO TERMINATE COUNTY'S HOUSING OF PERSONS IN ROUTE ONE MOTELS (Tape 11)

81.DECRIMINALIZING A "WHOOPS, I FORGOT" (Tape 11)

On behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman referred to a letter that Supervisor Hyland had recently received which tells a tale about two dogs and a racoon.

Supervisor Kauffman said that Ms. Cornwell found a dead racoon in her backyard which is occupied by her two dogs. Ms. Cornwell did not know if the racoon was rabid or diseased so she called the Fairfax County Animal Control office asking for an officer to retrieve the

dead racoon and to test it for disease. As part of the duties of the officer, he asked to see the rabies vaccination list for the two dogs. She called her vet only to learn that one vaccine had expired. Also as part of the duties of the officer, Ms. Cornwell was issued a citation. She is not concerned with the citation but she is concerned about something else.

Supervisor Kauffman said that if a similar situation occurs, and the dog of another owner does not have the appropriate shots and the owner knows that if s/he calls the Animal Control office for help, s/he would most likely receive a citation for not having the shots, would that owner actually call the Animal Control Office? Is it fair? Is it the right thing to do...issue a citation to a person who is trying to do the right thing?

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

82.RAIN GARDENS (Tape 11)

On behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman said that in Prince George's County, Maryland there is a pilot storm water retention project going on that may be interesting enough to have staff review it. It is affectionately called a rain garden. It works like a Best Management Practices (BMP), but it does not look like a typical dry or wet retention pond. These bioretention facilities are designed to mimic the conditions found on a mature forest floor and are configured to act as a highly permeable sink where stormwater runoff is directed, trapped and treated through the natural ecology.

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

Without objection, it was so ordered.

83.NO BOARD MATTERS FOR MASON DISTRICT SUPERVISOR GROSS (Tape 12)

Supervisor Connolly circulated to the Board copies of the Providence District VolunteerFest brochure. He stated that Providence District had approximately 400 volunteers. He expressed his appreciation to Linda Smith and Dee Horsley, Co-Chairmen for the Steering Committee, and all the other people who participated.

85.POLICY REGARDING CRITERIA AND PROCEDURES FOR ESTABLISHING STORM DRAINAGE PROBLEMS AS FUNDABLE PROJECTS (Tape 12)

Supervisor Connolly explained that in 1977 the Department of Public Works (DPW) established a process regarding the criteria and procedures for establishing storm drainage problems as fundable projects. He noted that there are approximately 700 projects throughout the County that are in the "queue" awaiting future funding. He expressed problems with this system.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of the DPW to review the establishment of a policy that includes in his evaluation of drainage project priorities the amount of time the project has been under consideration and to assign the project a corresponding number identifying its rank within a particular category. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman. Following a brief discussion, the question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

86.SIMULTANEOUS PROCESSING OF THE PRELIMINARY AND FINAL SUBDIVISION PLANS FOR PROPERTY KNOWN AS WOLFTRAP VALE (Tape 12)

In reference to property located southeast of the intersection of Wolftrap Road and Silentree Drive, south of Freedom Hill Elementary School, Supervisor Connolly stated that Stanley Martin, owner of the property, has been pursuing Subdivision Plan approval to allow construction of five single family homes on two acres of land. Plan review was delayed pending resolution of engineering issues pertaining to an off-site storm water management pond maintained by the County.

Because resolution of these issues caused the applicant to lose approximately five months in processing time, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board approve simultaneous processing of the Preliminary and Final Subdivision Plans for the property known as Wolftrap Vale, Section Two, (Fairfax County Plan Number 8800-SD-02). This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross and carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

87.ROBBERY AT TYSONS CORNER SHOPPING CENTER (Tape 12)

Supervisor Connolly reported that on October 17, 1996 the Providence District experienced a bank robbery at the Tysons Corner Shopping Center. The robbery occurred at Riggs Bank and a masked suspect attempted to flee on foot through the third level parking garage. After spotting the parked police cruiser that Officer Troy Payne was in, and which Recruit Gary Beavers was standing near, the suspect opened fire, hitting the cruiser in several places. Officer Payne rolled out of the cruiser and opened fire on the suspect who was fatally wounded. Officer Payne sustained a wound in his upper arm, but has recovered and is back on duty at the McLean Station. Recruit Beavers was uninjured.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix and carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

88.POLICE OVERTIME FOR CAMPAIGN EVENTS (Tape 12)

Supervisor Frey stated that on Friday, October 25, 1996 the President of the United States (US) appeared at a campaign rally at Lee High School. He also noted that Presidential Candidate Senator Robert Dole campaigned at Interstate Van Lines in the County. He stated that the Police Department incurred significant overtime for crowd control for the President's visit.

Supervisor Frey expressed his belief that it is inappropriate for the County taxpayers to pay for campaign events. Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

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

89.PERSONAL PROPERTY TAX RATE FOR POLICE AUXILIARY PERSONNEL WHO LEASE THEIR VEHICLES (Tape 12)

On behalf of Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Bulova pointed out a discrepancy in the County's tax code. She reminded the Board that Police Auxiliary and Fire and Rescue Auxiliary personnel who own their vehicles are allowed a lower tax rate on their vehicles. Earlier this year, the General Assembly empowered counties to extend this lower tax rate to Fire and Rescue Auxiliary personnel who lease their vehicles.

On behalf of Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board refer to the Legislative Committee a proposal to consider seeking legislation to extend authorization for enacting a lower personal property tax rate for Police Auxiliary personnel who lease their vehicles. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

90.DEVELOPER DEFAULT PROJECT IN THE SPRING FOREST SUBDIVISION (Tape 12)

On behalf of Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Bulova explained a situation regarding a developer default project in the Spring Forest Subdivision.
