(BACs)

On behalf of Supervisor Mendelsohn, Supervisor Kauffman stated that on November 11, 1996, Anthony H. Griffin, Acting County Executive, sent the Board a report on implementation of the Tree Preservation Task Force recommendations. That report showed that a number of the initiatives were suspended or identified as completed even though those same initiatives were discontinued, delayed or removed from the schedule due to budgetary constraints. At the January 27, 1997 Board meeting, Supervisor Mendelsohn made a motion to reconvene the Tree Preservation Task Force but withdrew that motion after receiving input from Mr. Griffin.

In an attempt to gain information relevant to accomplishing the initial recommendations of the Task Force, Supervisor Kauffman, on behalf of Supervisor Mendelsohn, moved that the Board direct staff to identify the cost of implementing all of the recommendations for the Tree Preservation Task Force as set forth in the November 11, 1996 report which were suspended, discontinued, delayed or removed from the schedule due to budgetary constraints. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman.

Following discussion, with input from Mr. Griffin, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Bulova asked to amend the motion to appoint Supervisor Mendelsohn as Chairman of the Tree Preservation Task Force, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board proclaim March as Mental Retardation Awareness Month and that the Arc and the others appear before the Board on February 24, 1997 to receive the Proclamation. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Kauffman and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

at 3601 Madison Lane. To expedite the process, and to establish a settled expectation for an adjacent developer of new housing, the applicant has requested concurrent Site Plan review. The Planning Commission approved Public Facilities Application 456-M96-2 and recommended approval of Special Exception Application SE 96-M-040 on February 5, 1997.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to process the Site Plan associated with this case concurrently. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on the Special Exception Application by the Board, and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

47. REQUEST FOR WAIVER OF FEES ASSOCIATED WITH THE CULMORE COMMUNITY ACTION COMMITTEE'S REQUEST TO EXPAND ITS FACILITY (Tape 6)

The new center will provide critical after-school services so that children will have a safe place to go for homework assistance, health education, and indoor recreation.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board waive all Department of Environmental Management (DEM) fees associated with this project. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Following discussion, with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

48. WAIVER REQUESTS FOR TRAILS, SIDEWALKS, ET CETERA AND ESCROW ACCOUNTS (Tape 6)

Each waiver is either denied, granted, or granted with an escrow requirement. Under this third condition, the developer does not construct the improvement, but puts funds into the County's escrow account. The intent of the escrow is that, when the improvement is to be built, the County has the money to pay for construction.

However, Supervisor Gross said that it appears that monies sit in escrow for years without the designated improvements ever being constructed.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Following discussion, with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

50. CENTEX HOMES (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly explained that Centex Homes has been working with his office, the Briarwoods Homeowners Association, and the Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP) on a rezoning proposal on acreage adjacent to the Providence Supervisor's Office.

He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards and does not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

For them to proceed, they must file a Comprehensive Development Plan Amendment/Final Development Plan Amendment/Proffered Condition Amendment Application (CDPA/FDPA/PCA) for Rezoning Application RZ 86-P-089, the original Government Center zoning application. Since the Board owns Land Bay A, its permission and assent is necessary.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board consent to the filing of Comprehensive Development Plan Amendment/Final Development Plan Amendment/Proffered Condition Amendment Application (CDPA/FDPA/PCA) on Land Bay A. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

58. TRANSPORTATION ADVISORY COMMISSION'S (TAC) RECOMMENDATION REGARDING A LOBBYIST (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell reported that the Transportation Advisory Commission (TAC) recommended that the County should seek to ensure that Congress understands and considers the County's needs as new transportation legislation is drafted.
