Chairman Hanley said that on Tuesday, February 18, 1997, the Fair Housing Council of Greater Washington released "The Fair Housing Index: An Audit of Race and National Origin Discrimination in the Greater Washington Rental Market." She distributed copies of the Audit to the Board. The audit reports the result of testing conducted throughout the region.

Chairman Hanley stated that the examples of discrimination outlined in the Audit are horrendous, and housing providers in Fairfax County were found to be among the most frequent offenders. Fairfax County must reaffirm the commitment to eliminating racial and ethnic segregation and other discriminatory housing practices, and redouble efforts at furthering fair housing in the County.

Chairman Hanley further stated that while the Audit results for Fairfax County include the Cities of Falls Church and Fairfax, it also indicates numbers which are specific to Fairfax County. The differences are noted, and the results are not much of an improvement.

The Audit reports that, overall, discrimination in the Fairfax County rental market occurred in 50 percent of visits to properties.

41.REVIEW OF SUPERVISORS' ROLE IN APPLICATIONS FOR ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE CONTROL LICENSES IN FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly stated that the subject of Fairfax County's role in the State review of applications for Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) licenses was discussed at an early meeting of the Board's Legislative Subcommittee. Several Board Members present expressed serious concerns about the process. Supervisor Connolly further stated that subsequently he wrote a memorandum to the Acting County Executive, with copies to Chief M. Douglas Scott, Police Department, relating specific concerns and asking that the Board review the role the Board plays in this process, and the procedures presently used.

Supervisor Connolly noted that the Acting County Executive's response has been attached to his written Board Matter. The timetable set out in Virginia Code 4.1-230 is explained at the top of page two of that Memorandum. Supervisor Connolly stated that there are several concerns.

Supervisor Connolly said that the form used seems to state that a Supervisor's signature indicates only his/her "opinion of item 3A," which concerns the number of licenses existing in the area where application is being made. Supervisors are asked to check "yes, no, or unknown" and sign. This in itself is confusing, and, highly subjective. How many liquor licenses are too many? Is this the only criterion on which the ABC is interested in the Supervisor's feedback? He noted that as Providence District Supervisor he was recently asked to sign a form for an establishment at which there is a high, documented incidence of crime. There is no provision on this form to allow a statement of concerns.

Supervisor Connolly further stated that because of the compressed time period the police have to do their investigation, it has been his experience that these forms arrive at the Supervisor's office before the investigation is complete. He said that in the case cited above, the investigating officer called to express his concern and Supervisor Connolly said was able to act on it, but he feared that expediency might affect the process and result in a license issued when it should not be.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Acting County Executive to conduct a complete review of the role of Board Members in this process, to include:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix.

Supervisor Dix asked to amend the motion to:

This was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.

42.ADDITIONS OF TYSONS CORNER TO CAPITAL BELTWAY ENTRANCE SIGNS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly stated that the Tysons Corner area, which is largely within the borders of the Providence District, has become the economic heart of Northern Virginia. With its vast amounts of commercial establishments and residential neighborhoods, it is a destination in and of itself not only for the people who live and work there, but for those who come from miles away.

Supervisor Connolly further stated that people from outside the immediate area are attracted to Tysons Corner by the magnitude of entertainment, shopping, and business facilities available there. There are five million square feet of retail space, and 20,374,926 square feet of office space at Tysons Corner. One third of the total hotel space in Fairfax County is located in Tysons Corner. Tysons Corner will continue to grow and to attract not only Fairfax County residents, but people from places such as Winchester, Fredericksburg, Charlottesville, and even the eastern panhandle of West Virginia.

Supervisor Connolly mentioned that people coming to Tysons Corner from outlaying areas, however, are often not familiar with the geography of the National Capital region. The signs on many of the major east-west thoroughfares, such as Route 66 and Route 50 are not muchhelp. Motorists traveling west on Route 50 are confronted at the entrance to the Beltway with signs that direct them to either Richmond or Rockville. The fact that Tysons Corner is not on these signs often creates unnecessary confusion and inconvenience for motorists.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to work with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and any other relevant agencies to add the name "Tysons Corner" to the appropriate signs at the Beltway entrances from the east-west thoroughfares, including but not limited to, Route 50, Interstates 66, 395, and 95. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by unanimous vote.

45.LETTERS ON YOUTH VIOLENCE FROM FALLS CHURCH HIGH SCHOOL GOVERNMENT STUDENTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly stated that following the presentation to the Board from the Community Initiative on Youth Violence, he received a package of letters written by government students at Falls Church High School who had read about the report in newspaper accounts. The students commented on many aspects of the report, including the recommendation to begin and dismiss high school students later in the day to reduce afternoon crime and the need for more recreation facilities for young people.

Supervisor Connolly further stated that he would provide copies of the letters to anyone interested.

This project is a cooperative effort with CFC and William A. Hazel, Incorporated, aimed at providing the youth in the area with an additional field for use in CYA soccer project, in particular the PeeWee Program practice sessions.

Simultaneous processing would allow the applicant to proceed at his own risk to do the engineering on the site and to potentially save months in the approval process.

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with provisions of all applicable conditions, regulations, or adopted standards relative to this Site Plan nor does it in anyway anticipate support for the Special Exception Application which will be considered at a later date by this Board.
