44.THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT IN PROVIDENCE DISTRICT (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly stated that in recent weeks Providence District was graced by a series of events that truly exemplify the spirit of the holiday season. A few weeks before the Christmas holidays a grandmother and her seven school aged grandchildren, for whom she is the sole source of support were about to be evicted from public housing. The day the eviction was to be enforced, Sheriff Carl Peed intervened to delay the eviction and give the County time to develop a plan to assist the family. With the assistance of Sheriff Peed, Verdia Haywood, Deputy County Executive for Human Services; John Callaghan of the Department of Housing and Community Development; and Suzanne Manzo, Director, Department of Family Services, a long term plan was put in place to assure housing for this family.

Supervisor Connolly stated that after the housing issue was resolved, Officers Tom Black and Mike Shamblin, and Diane Cameron, School Social Worker, on their own initiative, worked to ensure that this family had the best Christmas possible. They contacted Paxton Van Lines, who agreed to donate three sets of bunk beds, six dressers, over $100 for Christmas dinner, and gifts for the children. Supervisor Connolly expressed thanks also to Fred Paxton, owner of the company; B.J. Shamblin, Paxton Van Lines Director of Personnel, who also happens to be Officer Shamblin's father; and Larry Porter and Michael Wright, both employees of Paxton Van Lines.

45.REDEDICATION OF DOUGLASS AVENUE IN HONOR OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly informed the Board of the need to rededicate Douglas Avenue. For years the street signs reading "Douglas Ave" have stood at the corners of a small, dead-end street in the historic and vibrant Southgate/James Lee community in Providence District. Douglas Avenue may be small, but its significance is not. The street was named for Frederick Douglass, former slave, noted author and the leading spokesman of American Blacks in the l800s -- whose name is spelled with two "s's" not one, as the street sign now indicates. This mistake was recently discovered by Rick Turman, Chairman of the Historical Society of the City of Falls Church, while he was researching Black history in this area. Mr. Turman petitioned the Falls Church City Council earlier this year, during Black History Month, to correct this unfortunate error on the City side of Douglas Avenue and the signs in the City have been changed. The mistake remains on the County portion of the block, ?however.

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

The selection panel reviewed the criteria including teaching environment, curriculum and instruction, parent and community support and at success indicators including student performance, post-graduate pursuits, graduation rates, students and teacher awards. Such a prestigious award and the work being done at Luther Jackson deserves recognition and support.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Dr. Doran, the appropriate staff, and community and business leaders involved in these programs to appear before the Board, as soon as possible, to be recognized. Without objection, it was so ordered.

47.LAND DEDICATIONS TO THE PARK AUTHORITY (Tape 7)

Noting that he had consulted with the staff from the Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP) and the County Attorney's Office, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board reconsider the vote whereby the Subdivision and Zoning Ordinances were amended on December 9, 1996.
