51.MAY 3, 1997 OIL TANKER TRUCK OVERTURN AT BELTWAY AND ROUTE 236 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross referred to an accident that occurred last Saturday morning involving a Hahn Truck Company tanker which was traveling eastbound on Route 236 and turned over as it entered the ramp for southbound I-495.

Supervisor Gross deferred to Supervisor Bulova to present this item jointly on behalf of herself and Supervisor Connolly. Supervisor Bulova said that the accident occurred at approximately 12:30 a.m. As a result of the accident, the Beltway (I-495) was closed for nine hours. Fortunately, gasoline spilling from the tanker was mostly contained and very little of the product escaped into nearby streams or close-by Lake Accotink. Actions by the Fire and Rescue Department, Police Department, Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the State's Department of Environmental Quality were quick, well coordinated and effective.

Supervisor Bulova noted that there have been several other accidents involving tankers at the Route 236/Beltway location. She said that she has contacted Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Gross and Chairman Hanley who are most closely affected by incidents at this location and they have agreed to organize a meeting in her office to focus on this issue. Specifically:

In preparation for the meeting, which has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 4, 1997 at 10:00 a.m., Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff from the Police Traffic Safety Section and the Fire and Rescue Department to work with VDOT and other appropriate agencies or organizations to respond to the above issues and to prepare recommendations for discussion at the meeting. This motion was jointly seconded by Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Gross and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix* and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

A brief discussion ensued among Board Members and members of the Police Department and Fire and Rescue Department.

*Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that he be recorded as voting "AYE" on this item. Without objection, it was so ordered.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, there was an additional reference to this issue. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#60.)

52.SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 97-M-019 (FIRST UNION BANK) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross stated that First Union Bank has filed Special Exception Application SE 97-M-019 for its central Annandale location. As part of its application, First Union worked with the Annandale Central Business District Planning Committee, and intends to install the Annandale streetscape plan along the site's frontage, including landscaping, acorn street lights, and brick sidewalks. To complete the brick work before cold weather arrives, First Union has requested that the Site Plan be processed simultaneously with the Special Exception Application, and that the application be scheduled for public hearing before the Board prior to the August recess.

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

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 Connolly and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

53.ENFORCEMENT OF ILLEGAL SIGNAGE AND LITTERING (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross stated that throughout the County she has observed an increase in the number of illegal signs along the roadways. Illegal signs are on telephone poles, trees, Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) signs, in medians, and in the right-of-way. This is a form of litter, and Article 12 of the Zoning Ordinance is explicit about what is permitted and what is not.

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

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, Acting County Executive, the question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

54.REQUEST FOR BROCHURE WHICH DETAILS THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, CHAPTER 110 (INOPERATIVE MOTOR VEHICLES, TRAILERS AND SEMITRAILERS) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross noted that she is impressed with the efforts of the police at enforcing the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 110 (Inoperative Motor Vehicles, Trailers and Semitrailers) violations. She expressed her appreciation to Master Police Officer John Burdette, who has been a one-man enforcement crew, and who has justifiably received attention from the media on several occasions this year.

However, Supervisor Gross suggested that a brochure which details the requirements of Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 110 (Inoperative Motor Vehicles, Trailers and Semitrailers) would have a beneficial return, by reducing the number of eyesores in the County, and potentially by increasing the collection rate of County decal fees and outstanding personal property tax. She added that this could be particularly effective if the brochure is available in several languages, and made widely available both from the County and from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to contact the DMV, and explore the feasibility of producing such a brochure. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

55.BAILEY'S DAY 1997 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross invited all those interested to Bailey's Day 1997. This year's event will be held on Sunday, May 18, 1997 from 12:00 noon until 4:00 p.m. at the Bailey's Crossroads Shopping Center which is located at the intersection of Route Seven and Columbia Pike.

56.CLOSED MEETINGS TO BE HELD TO INTERVIEW CANDIDATES FOR THE POSITION OF COUNTY EXECUTIVE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross announced in accordance with the Code of Virginia, Section 2.1-344.1b, that within 15 days the Board will conduct closed meetings for the purpose of interviewing candidates for the position of County Executive.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board:

This motion, the second to which was indistinguishable, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

58.CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR KORFONTA'S ADDITION TO COUNTRY LANE - REZONING APPLICATION RZ 97-B-005 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that a rezoning application has been filed on a small parcel of land to create two lots. This parcel on Country Lane in Annandale is adjacent to a larger parcel that will soon be developed.

Supervisor Bulova noted that the applicant is requesting concurrent processing of the final subdivision and profiles along with the rezoning. The reduction in time would allow for possible coordination of frontage improvements along Country Lane for both projects. The present configuration of Country Lane is very narrow with limited site distance.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to concurrently process the final subdivision and profiles with Rezoning Application RZ 97-B-005. The applicant understands that he does so at his own risk and must meet all appropriate Code of the County and Ordinance requirements. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

59.PROPOSED CHANGE TO THE BYLAWS OF THE HUMAN SERVICES COUNCIL (Tape 6)

(BACs)

Supervisor Bulova referred to the Bylaws of the Human Services Council regarding the provision that an appointee cannot serve more than two consecutive terms of four years and moved that the Board delete Section Two of the Bylaws which would read as follows:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to not delete the first sentence of that paragraph, and this was accepted.

Supervisor Frey asked to amend the motion to defer this item and direct staff to report with a Consideration Item, and this was accepted.

Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to direct staff to provide a list of members who fall into this category, and this was accepted.

Chairman Hanley asked to amend the motion to direct the Human Services Council to provide its recommendation regarding this issue, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Dix asked to amend the motion to direct staff to provide information as to whether there are other Boards, Authorities and Commissions (BACs) who have similar requirements, and this was accepted.

Anthony H. Griffin, Acting County Executive, announced that staff would not be able to get a response from the Human Services Council prior to June.

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

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, Supervisor Bulova presented a Board Matter regarding the tanker truck accident on May 3, 1997 at the intersection of Route 236 and the Beltway. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#51.)

61."MARCH FOR PARKS" A SUCCESS AT EAKIN PARK (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly reported on the recent "March for Parks" event which he attended at Eakin Park. This event, begun by the National Parks and Conservation Association in 1990, encourages people to take an active interest in the parks in their communities. He noted that the Eakin Park event raised over $700 and he expressed his appreciation to the individuals and groups who made the event possible. He mentioned that "March for Parks" events were also held at Eleanor C. Lawrence Park, Frying Pan Park, and Huntley Meadows Park.

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

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

63.LAND DESIGN CONSULTANTS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly explained that Land Design Consultants have recently submitted an application to rezone 5.72 acres of land located south of the intersection of Lord Fairfax Road and Wolf Trap Road. This rezoning application seeks to permit the development of 16 dwelling units at a density of 2.80 dwelling units per acre (du/ac). The applicant has determined that the Board is the owner of the right-of-way along Lord Fairfax Road that was deeded on August 31, 1936. The applicant proposes to include a portion of this right-of-way in the rezoning request being made on this property and acceptance of this application requires concurrence of filing by the Board.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of right-of-way in the rezoning application being filed on property located at Tax Map Reference 39-1((9)) parcels 15, 16, 19, and 20. 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 Gross and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

64.SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 97-P-030 FILED BY LOCKHEED MARTIN (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly stated that Lockheed Martin has recently filed a special exception application for a building mounted sign at its facility located at 3 Flint Hill in Providence District. This application has been scheduled for a public hearing by the Planning Commission on September 18, 1997.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct:

Supervisor Connolly 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 Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

65.WINCHESTER HOMES REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1997-PR-003 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly explained that Winchester Homes has assembled 4.8 acres of land located in the southeast quadrant of Blake Lane and Chain Bridge Road. The applicant is seeking to rezone the property from R-2 to PDH-12 to allow development of 39 single family attached homes at a density of 8.1 dwelling units per acre (du/ac). This is consistent with the Plan which designates the site for residential development at a density of 8-12 du/ac.

Supervisor Connolly stated that the applicant has determined that 3,541 square feet of right-of-way was dedicated to the Board in 1977 with the approval of the special use permit for the Washington Pastoral Counseling Center. At that time, the 98 foot right-of-way was to allow for construction of a service road along Chain Bridge Road, a concept that has been abandoned. Because the applicant proposes to include this square footage in the rezoning application, Board authorization is necessary.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of 3,541 square feet of right-of-way adjacent to Tax Map Parcel 47-2-((1))-81 within land area of Rezoning Application RZ 1997-PR-003. 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 Mendelsohn and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

66.FL PROMENADE LIMITED PARTNERSHIP (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey explained that FL Promenade Limited Partnership has filed applications for property known as Land Bay A of the Government Center. The applicant and the County have entered into an agreement for the design of a two phased stormwater management system and construction of the first phase of the system. The agreement includes certain submission deadlines to ensure that all construction is completed in a timely fashion. To facilitate construction to meet the deadlines, the applicant has requested the ability to concurrently process Site Plans, design drawings, and any other plats or plans as may be necessary.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) to accept for concurrent and simultaneous processing, Site Plans, design drawings, and any other plats or plans as may be necessary for the property that is subject to Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 86-W-001-7 and Final Development Plan Amendment Application FDPA 86-1-001-5 to be heard concurrently with Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 86-P-089-4 and Final Development Plan Amendment Application FDPA 89-P-089. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

67.FEE WAIVER FOR CHANTILLY HIGH SCHOOL BOOSTERS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey stated that the Chantilly High School Boosters sponsored a circus at Bull Run Regional Park to raise money for the school and the students. He moved that the Board waive the fees associated with this circus fundraising event. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Mendelsohn.

Following a query to David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

68.WESTFIELDS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey stated that there are a series of zoning applications filed by Westfields which were scheduled for Planning Commission public hearings this month. To resolve some issues, the hearings have been rescheduled for June 18.

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

69.TRAINING FOR ANIMAL WARDENS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey raised the issue of the training of animal wardens. He explained that new animal wardens undertake the 10-month law enforcement training program at the Public Safety Academy, but receive no specialized training in animal welfare or humane education prior to assuming their duties.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Acting County Executive and the Director of the Department of Animal Control, in consultation with the Animal Shelter Advisory Commission, to develop a formal program for training beyond the Public Safety Academy and focusing on animal welfare and humane education issues. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley clarified that the motion directs staff to recommend a program and the cost.

Following further discussion, Supervisor Frey clarified that the goal of the motion is to provide the training for the new hires.

Following additional discussion, Supervisor McConnell suggested that the staff contact local veterinarians for voluntary assistance in training wardens.

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

70.RHYTHM AND CHEER DANCERS (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell announced that the local Rhythm and Cheer Dancers are the Disney Grand National Champions and won a total of 13 trophies in age groups of the eight dance divisions at a competition at Disney World. Accordingly, she asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the Rhythm and Cheer Dancers to appear before the Board on May 19, 1997 to be recognized for this achievement. Without objection, it was so ordered.

71.LIGHTS ON THE FAIRFAX COUNTY PARKWAY (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell expressed concern about problems with the traffic lights on the Fairfax County Parkway.

73.FEE WAIVER FOR LOYAL ORDER OF MOOSE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland stated that he received a request from the Loyal Order of Moose for a permit reapplication fee waiver and the resubmission of the plat. He explained that some time ago they had submitted a plat and paid $3000 in permit fees to pave their parking lot. Circumstances intervened and they had to repair the roof of the building which depleted their funds. The permit for the paving has expired and they must resubmit their plat and pay again.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board waive the permit fee and submission of the plat, subject to the advice of the County Attorney that such waiver is legally permissible. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey.

Following a query to David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on the motion which carried by unanimous vote.

74.EXPEDITED PROCESSING REQUESTED BY MOUNT VERNON COUNTRY CLUB (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland stated that he recently received a request from the Mount Vernon Country Club for expedited processing on their special exception application and rough grading permit. They need to expedite the process to begin this fall to make the planned modifications to the property.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to expedite and simultaneously process the Mounty Vernon Country Club's application to enable them to begin work by this autumn.

Chairman Hanley 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, the second to which was indistinguishable, carried by unanimous vote.
