This motion was seconded by Vice-Chairman Hyland and carried by unanimous vote.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

38.PROPOSED ADDITION TO THE MCLEAN RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that his office has forwarded to the Office of Transportation (OT) petitions from two additional streets asking to be added to the McLean Residential Permit Parking District (RPPD). These streets were initially listed as eligible, but the citizens did not choose to join at that time.

In keeping with the precedent set for the McLean RPPD, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved to waive the fees for residents of Hamel Hill Court and Symphony Place wishing to join the RPPD. This motion was seconded by Bulova and carried by unanimous vote.

39.SIGN BLIGHT (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that the problem of sign blight from commercial advertising along roadways in Fairfax County has reached critical dimensions. Supervisor Mendelsohn said residents in the Dranesville District have repeatedly contacted his office seeking a solution to what they consider a degradation of the landscape and impediment to driving safety where those signs create a sight-distance problem at intersections. Some groups have responded by adopting certain roadways pursuant to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Adopt-A-Highway Program, an initiative which has proven to be successful as a group effort. There are however, many areas of roadway which have not been adopted and which would benefit from a program authorizing individual citizens to remove signs illegally placed in the VDOT right-of-ways. Supervisor Mendelsohn said that in an effort to reduce the number of illegal signs, his office has worked closely with the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association (NVBIA), the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce and the Department of Tax Administration (DTA) and he commended those groups for their cooperation and the results attributable to their efforts.

Supervisor Mendelsohn distributed to Board Members a copy of a letter of opinion prepared by the County Attorney in response to an inquiry from the Clean Fairfax Council addressing the issue of potential liability of citizens who remove signs illegally placed in the public

right-of-ways. According to that opinion, volunteers who remove signs from the public right-of-ways without proper authorization could be subject to criminal prosecution. Supervisor Mendelsohn further stated that without requisite proper authorization, Fairfax County roadways cannot be protected against sign blight by citizen volunteers interested in preserving the residential and rural natures of their communities.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to investigate an appropriate mechanism or legislation whereby individual citizens can be identified as representatives of the Commonwealth Transportation Commission (CTC) for the purpose of removing illegal signs in the public right-of-ways without the threat of criminal prosection. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by unanimous vote.

40.VALUE ENGINEERING (VE) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that the Federation of Citizens Associations and the McLean Citizens Association, along with several other groups have asked that the Board adopt a Policy of mandating Value Engineering (VE) and include school projects as well.

Supervisor Mendelsohn noted that on May 23, 1997, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) reported a total savings, from 1990 to the present of $121.29 million. This savings, on average, was $62 per dollar spent on VE studies. In the current fiscal year, VE savings are running at $112 saved for every dollar spent. VE has much to offer Fairfax County and it is up to the Board to devise a way to realize the clear savings and other benefits from professional level VE.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn and Supervisor Connolly jointly moved that the Board:

Following discussion, with input by Anthony H. Griffin, Acting County Executive, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to recommend a dollar threshold for projects, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Bulova asked to amend the motion to direct staff to consider recommendations for additional VE training, and this was accepted.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to take into consideration possible conflicts on small projects, for example trail construction and the recommendations of the Tree Commission, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

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

Supervisor Mendelsohn recognized the presence of Mr. Charles Brown, Mr. Rudy Kempter, Ms. Merrilee Pierce, Mr. Tom Langdon, Mr. Art Litke and Mr. Glenn Stroup, and Louis Devon, Chapter President, Mount Vernon District, National Capitol Chapter of Society of American Value Engineers (SAVE) and thanked them for being present to support VE.

42.REQUEST FROM THE CHANTILLY YOUTH ASSOCIATION (CYA) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey said that he has received a request from the Chantilly Youth Association (CYA) to initiate the process to allow them to utilize County-owned property adjacent to the Stringfellow Road realignment near its intersection with Lee Highway (Route 29) on an interim basis for ball fields.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to initiate the process of negotiating a lease agreement with CYA. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

43.BULL RUN COUNTRY JAMBOREE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey expressed his appreciation to Chairman Hanley and Supervisor Bulova for attending the Bull Run Country Jamboree. He added that it was a very successful event. He commended the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) for allowing a construction entrance to be opened to allow traffic to exit the park directly onto I-66.

44.MILEAGE REIMBURSEMENT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova referred to a memorandum from Anthony H. Griffin, Acting County Executive, stating that the State has increased mileage reimbursement to $.27 per mile.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board increase its mileage reimbursement rate from $.24 to $.27 in line with the rate adopted by the State. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey and CARRIED by a recorded vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly voting "NAY," Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Mr. Griffin pointed out, for the record, that the current Fairfax County mileage reimbursement rate is $.26 not $.24.

45.HOLLY PARK SANITARY SEWER EXTENSION AND IMPROVEMENT (E&I) PROJECT M00052 REACTIVATION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova noted that the Holly Park project is a small one in the Braddock District that was planned to provide sanitary sewer service to l17 homes in an area of failing septic systems. This project has been on hold due to a lack of 50 percent of the owners agreeing to pay the availability fee. With the addition of another owner and the partial redesign of the project, it is now possible to proceed. Funding for this project was previously approved in another fiscal year and is still in the Extension and Improvement (E&I) Project fund.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

46.EXPEDITED PROCESSING FOR COUNTRY LANE PLANS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova noted that at the Board meeting of June 9, 1997, staff was directed to simultaneously process the Preliminary Plat and Subdivision Plan (9288-SD-01) for the Country Lane development. This is a small, eight lot subdivision that has been under review. She said that she neglected to mention expediting the review as well.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct the Acting Director of the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) to expeditiously review the Preliminary and Subdivision Plans for Country Lane. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

47.AFFORDABLE DWELLING UNIT (ADU) TASK FORCE STATUS REPORT (Tape 5)

(BACs)

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide a draft Status Report (if available) prepared by the Affordable Dwelling Unit (ADU) Task Force regarding the ADU Ordinance. Without objection, it was so ordered.

48.INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 94-H-065 (VAN METRE AT WOODLAND PARK LIMITED PARTNERSHIP) (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT) (Tape 5)

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, this public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#94.)

49.CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR SOUTH LAKES HIGH SCHOOL (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct the County Attorney and the Acting County Executive to:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell.

Supervisor Hyland moved a substitute motion that the Board direct staff to:

Following discussion, the question was called on the substitute motion which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to determine the legal options regarding this issue. Without objection, it was so ordered.

51.PARK-AND-RIDE LOT FOR LOUDOUN COUNTY (Tape 5)

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Supervisor Hyland moved to amend the motion to direct staff to prepare a letter to be sent to the Attorney General requesting his opinion as to whether the use of these funds is proper under Virginia Law.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Bulova and asked to amend the motion to seek the Attorney General's opinion should there be a challenge to Fairfax County's interpretation of the law, and this was accepted.

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

Acting-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

52. MOUNT VERNON COUNCIL OF CITIZENS ASSOCIATIONS REQUESTS POLICE OFFICER FOR EACH MIDDLE SCHOOL (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that the Mount Vernon Council of Citizens Associations recently sent him a copy of a resolution requesting that the Board provide one police officer to the Whitman Middle School beginning July 1, 1997 for a three-year period.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this request to staff to determine if each of the two middle schools in the Mount Vernon District -- Carl Sandburg and Walt Whitman -- may be assigned one police officer each on a full time basis with an evaluation of that assignment conducted by police and school staff measuring the efficacy of this position after a three-year period. Without objection, it was so ordered.

53. TREATMENT OF PROPERTY TAXES WHEN ASSESSMENTS INCREASE

SUBSTANTIALLY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland stated that many residents of the Mount Vernon District have expressed concern with real estate property tax hikes resulting from sudden increases in valuation on their property. In most of these cases, property owners feel the boosts are unjustified, citing as reasons that they do not derive direct benefit from many County services.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board refer this matter to staff for review and recommendation as to how the County might treat property owners who have occupied their home for five or more years or have held unimproved land for more than 15 years; and, in either case, have experienced sudden, dramatic real estate tax increases from one year to the following year. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

54. CIVIC ASSOCIATION OF HOLLIN HILLS REQUESTS IMPLEMENTATION OF TRANSPORTATION SAFETY MEASURES (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that following a lengthy study period, the Civic Association of Hollin Hills (CAHH) has communicated its request to improve traffic safety in the community.

Supervisor Hyland distributed to Board Members a copy of a letter from the President of this Association indicating their community's concurrence of the specific transportation safety measures approved by members of the CAHH.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board refer this issue to the Office of Transportation for their prompt review and possible implementation. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

55. ORGANIC OCTOGENARIAN (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland distributed to Board Members a "gung-hoe" article about Mr. Linus Franko who drives from Hanover County to participate in the weekly Mount Vernon Farmers' Market.

Supervisor Hyland urged the Board to enjoy the article and come to the Mount Vernon Farmers' Market on Tuesdays to meet the newest celebrity and enjoy the fruits of his labor and those of the other farmers.

56. FOLLOW-UP ON AGGRESSIVE DRIVERS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland noted that aggressive driving is of concern to many residents of Fairfax County and, frankly, is something that needs to be addressed by the Board.

Supervisor Hyland said that currently the practice used by police is that if a citizen witnesses an act of dangerous driving, much of the burden of pursuing the matter falls on the person who reports the act. Once the offender is identified, the citizen who witnessed the traffic violation must go to a magistrate and take out a warrant against the aggressive driver. When the violator is served with the warrant and a court date is set, the witness would then have to go to court to testify against the offending driver. This is an onerous process and certainly discourages law-abiding drivers from reporting aggressive actions they see on the road.

Supervisor Hyland said that there needs to be a way for citizens to identify aggressive drivers, report them to the authorities, and expect to have some follow-up by police to curb these activities.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the Police Department, as a matter of policy, to consider implementing a program of calling aggressive drivers who have been reported to the police by citizens and issuing them a verbal warning to correct their driving habits immediately. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell.

Following discussion, with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, and Anthony H. Griffin, Acting County Executive, Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to direct staff to review the issue of unsubstantiated claims, and this was accepted.

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

57.JOINT BOARD MATTER REGARDING CURRENT STATUS OF COMPLIANCE EFFORTS BY THE DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT (HCD) (Tape 5)

On behalf of Supervisor Kauffman and himself, Supervisor Hyland said that he recently met with the Director and staff of the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for a briefing concerning the current status of compliance efforts for the Section Eight Housing Program.

Supervisor Hyland said that the two concerns and complaints most frequently heard are about the concentration of Section Eight families in the Route One Corridor and the neglect of properties which result in poor or no maintenance.

Addressing the concentration issue, one of the initiatives taken by HCD is an orientation program for Section Eight applicants which would include a video about the program, the rights and responsibilities along with an educational component highlighting to prospective Section Eight participants the advantages of living Countywide near employment centers.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman and Supervisor Hyland jointly moved that the Board direct the:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, Acting County Executive, and Mary E. Egan, Deputy Director, HCD, it was clarified that the second part of the motion will be presented to the Board as a Consideration Item during Carryover.

The question was called on the motion which CARRIED by a recorded vote of seven, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn voting "NAY," Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

58. PUBLIC HEARING ON THE ACQUISITION OF CERTAIN LAND RIGHTS NECESSARY FOR CONSTRUCTION OF COUNTY ROAD BOND PROJECT AT FORT HUNT AND BELLE HAVEN ROADS (Tape 5)

Due to continuing citizen concerns with the pending abandonment/vacation of a portion of Belle Haven Road which has an impact on the Fort Hunt/Belle Haven Roads project, Supervisor Hyland stated that additional time is required to permit completion of this abandonment/vacation prior to the completion of the land acquisition phase of this project.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved to cancel the public hearing on the acquisition of certain land rights necessary for the construction of Country Road Bond Project -- Fort Hunt Road/Belle Haven Road, which was originally to be scheduled for 4:00 p.m. on July 7, 1997. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

59. SUMMARY OF WOODROW WILSON BRIDGE IMPROVEMENT STUDY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland distributed to Board Members information regarding the Summary concerning the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Improvement Study. The brochure contains a succinct, yet thorough background with photographs of the project to date.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to prepare a letter for the Chairman's signature to Senator Warner reiterating the County's position regarding design of the bridge. Without objection, it was so ordered.

60. IS THE BOARD OF EQUALIZATION (BOE) TOO B-I-G? (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland raised the issue of reducing the number of members on the Board of Equalization (BOE) from nine to five. He noted that the current vacancy on the BOE may permit the Board of Supervisors to make a smooth transition to a smaller BOE if that alternative is desirable. Holding the vacancy open until the end of the term (December 1997) would permit a transition to a five-member BOE by reducing the Board to seven members at the end of this year and then to five at the end of Fiscal Year (FY) 1998 as the terms of current members expire.

In making such a transition, Supervisor Hyland said that he would expect that a five-member Board would have at least one appraiser, one lawyer, and one builder member as the original five-member Board. A seven- member Board would have a second appraiser member.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff and the BOE to review this proposal to return the BOE to five members. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

61. POLICE SUBSTATION LOCATED IN THE LORTON AREA (Tape 6)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, there was discussion regarding this issue. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#34.)

Supervisor Hyland referred to the Police Substation located in the Lorton area and moved that the Board refer this issue to the Acting County Executive to determine the option available as far as continuing a substation in the Lorton community either at the present location or at an alternative location. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

62. MEETING REGARDING PURCHASE OF TWO CONDOMINIUM UNITS IN THE SKYLINE AREA OF MASON DISTRICT (Tape 7)

As a follow up to an agenda item from the April 21, 1997 meeting of the Board, Supervisor Gross expressed appreciation to Verdia L. Haywood, Deputy County Executive for Human Services, and staff from the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), for coordinating a meeting to discuss questions raised about the purchase of two condominium units in the Skyline area of Mason District. At the April 21st meeting the Board allocated $50,000 in federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to the Alliance for the Physically Disabled to be used toward the acquisition of permanent housing for physically disabled adults.

63. WOMEN SPORTS COMMITTEE AWARD CEREMONY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross reported with pleasure that she had attended and participated in the Women Sports Committee Award Ceremony on Saturday, June 14, 1997. She stated that the ceremony rewards women athletes along with their coaches and trainers, and encourages adults involved with athletics at any scholastic level, to recognize and nominate exceptional female athletes.

Supervisor Gross noted that the sponsoring organization, Women's Sports Foundation, a national non-profit educational organization which promotes the lifelong participation of all girls and women in sports and fitness, seeks to create an educated public that encourages females' participation and supports gender equity in sport. It also strives to improve the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of all females through sports and fitness.

Supervisor Gross congratulated all the girls and young women nominated and expressed appreciation to their nominators. Because the Athletic Council and school coaches can be instrumental in identifying and nominating female athletes, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to communicate this information formally to the Athletic Council and School Division for their future use. Without objection, it was so ordered.

64. "ANIMAL FRIENDLY" LICENSE PLATES (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross explained that the Virginia Legislature passed a law allowing for the creation and issuance of a special license plate which will support local initiatives to fund spay/neuter programs for dogs and cats. To produce the plate, 350 prepaid applications must be collected statewide and presented to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Once 1000 plates are sold, $15 of each sale will return to the local community in which the plate was purchased to support spay/neuter programs.

Supervisor Gross stressed that spaying and neutering is the most effective method of reducing pet overpopulation, a problem in the County. If this license plate initiative is successful, the County will reap substantial benefits without being asked to invest any funds.

Accordingly, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff, through the Office of Public Affairs, to prepare and implement a plan to heighten the awareness of County residents of this "animal friendly" license plate, and encourage participation before the window of opportunity is lost. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

65.MASON DISTRICT TOWN MEETING (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross announced that she is hosting the next Mason District Town Meeting on Tuesday, June 24, 1997 at 7:00 p.m. in the Annandale Firehouse, 7128 Columbia Pike. The theme is "Doing Business in Mason District" with a goal of assisting small business owners and residents who wish to start a business with the process of obtaining the proper permits, licenses, zoning, et cetera. Other questions of concern to citizens will also be on the agenda.

66.MEETING OF THE BOARD'S PERSONNEL COMMITTEE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross reminded the Board that the Board's Personnel Committee will be meeting on Tuesday, June 24, 1997 in Conference Room 232 at 9:00 a.m.

67.CHANNEL FIVE WEATHER REPORT FROM WILDFLOWER BREAD MILL (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly expressed his appreciation to Fox Morning News (Channel Five) for broadcasting their weather reports today from Wildflower Bread Mill, a special bakery staffed by persons with developmental disabilities. He hailed the station for focusing attention on this worthy cause.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board raised another item concerning the Wildflower Bread Mill. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#70.)

68.BONE MARROW DONOR PROGRAM (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly stated that he had been approached by a constituent of Providence District requesting that he examine the feasibility of the County's sponsoring its employees wishing to become bone marrow donors. He noted that there is a desperate need for more people to be added to this national registry to provide hope to those needing this life saving operation. The number of donors has been insufficient to meet the number of patients needing the bone marrow replacement. The procedure to become a donor begins by the volunteer giving a blood sample to determine if he/she qualifies to be a donor. If ultimately selected as a donor, the process to give bone marrow entails an out-patient procedure with a one day recuperation.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Health to:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix.

Supervisor Connolly noted that the projected fiscal impact of the program is $2500-$5000 annually and that staff has indicated that this cost can be absorbed administratively.

The question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

69.CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF NECESSARY PLANS WITH THE SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION FOR MCDONALD'S CORPORATION PROPERTY LOCATED AT 7101 LEESBURG PIKE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly reminded the Board that the McDonald's Corporation is in the process of converting many of the Roy Rogers restaurants in Northern Virginia, the District of Columbia, and Maryland. As a result, McDonald's will be filing a Special Exception application for the property located at 7101 Leesburg Pike at the beginning of July to rebuild this facility with a drive-thru. The applicant has requested concurrent processing to allow the restaurant to be rebuilt and opened in December of 1998.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Acting Director of the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) and the Director of the Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP) to concurrently process the necessary plans associated with

the Special Exception application on property identified on Tax Map Reference 40-3((1)) parcel 108 and located at 7101 Leesburg Pike. He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of this application in any way. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Gross being out of the room.

70.WILDFLOWER BREAD MILL POETRY TAPE (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed the Wildflower Bread Mill. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#67.)

Supervisor Connolly stated that the staff from the Wildflower Bread Mill has produced a poetry tape entitled Whispers in Our Mind which is for sale at $7.50.

71.DEFERRAL OF THE APPEAL OF A PUBLIC FACILITIES APPLICATION FILED BY AMERICAN PERSONAL COMMUNICATIONS, LIMITED PARTNERSHIP (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman moved to defer consideration of the appeal of the Public Facilities Application 456-L-95-34 filed by American Personal Communications, Limited Partnership and others, scheduled for the July 7, 1997 meeting of the Board, until July 21, 1997 at the request of the appellant. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by unanimous vote.

72.FRANCONIA-SPRINGFIELD METRORAIL STATION OPENING (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman invited fellow Board Members to the opening of the Franconia-Springfield Metrorail Station on Sunday, June 29, 1997. The VIP reception will be held at 1:00 p.m., with the formal opening ceremonies to follow at 2:00 p.m.

73.INTRODUCTION OF HILLARY ZAHN, INTERN IN LEE DISTRICT SUPERVISOR KAUFFMAN'S OFFICE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman introduced Ms. Hillary Zahn, a senior at James Madison University who is serving an internship in his office this summer.

74.PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, CHAPTER 112 (ZONING ORDINANCE) REGARDING ACCESSORY SERVICE USES (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell explained that an issue has arisen in the Springfield District regarding the establishment of a nail care business in a predominantly office condominium that is

zoned C-1. She noted that under the Zoning Ordinance, such a business is allowed in the C-1 District only as an accessory service under criteria which requires that the business be oriented to cater primarily to the other occupants in the development in which it is located. She said that there has been some question as to whether this business satisfies the criteria and it raises the issue of the appropriateness of the applicable Zoning Ordinance provisions.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to review, on a priority basis, the Zoning Ordinance provisions related to accessory services uses and to suggest appropriate amendments to address the type of concerns that has developed in this instance. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland.

Following discussion, Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to refer this item to the Development Process Committee along with other items already under review, and this was accepted.

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

75.FASTFAX POLICE PROGRAM (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell stated that she had been contacted by Delegate Jay O'Brien who was concerned by the seeming lack of notification to private schools by the Police Department's FASTFAX program. She reminded the Board that this faxing network allows County businesses, various churches, and area public schools to receive updated information regarding active police events in their area. Delegate O'Brien is concerned that a County private school did not receive information regarding a police event in its area. While any community organization or group may be placed on the FASTFAX distribution list, Supervisor McConnell expressed her agreement with Delegate O'Brien regarding the need to contact all private schools and churches to determine if they may be interested in receiving information in this manner.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to contact all area private schools and churches to determine their interest in participating in the County's FASTFAX program. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by unanimous vote.

77.LETTERHEAD STATIONERY FOR BOARD MEMBERS (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell expressed her desire for a Policy regarding the distribution to public meetings of Board letterhead stationery which could be misconstrued as a Board endorsement rather than the views of an individual Board Member. She stated that communications from an individual Board Member must be differentiated from a communication from the Board as a whole.

There was a brief discussion of this issue.

78.A-6 - COMMENTS TO THE STATE CORPORATION COMMISSION (SCC) ON 703 AREA CODE RELIEF (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board took action on this item. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#19.)

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the settlement of Unisys Corporation versus Kevin C. Greenlief and County of Fairfax, At Law Number 148672, and Unisys Corporation versus Kevin C. Greenlief and County of Fairfax, Virginia, At Law Number 157710, according to the terms and conditions outlined by the County Attorney in Executive Session.

82.AUTHORIZATION OF FILING OF A COUNTERCLAIM IN MARRIOTT SENIOR LIVING SERVICE VERSUS BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF FAIRFAX COUNTY, AT LAW NUMBER 148668 (Tape 8)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, action was deferred on this item. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#25.)

Chairman Hanley announced that the Commonwealth of Virginia Attorney General has issued a formal opinion stating that the Board has the authority to restrict weapons in various ways in County facilities without seeking legislation.

Chairman Hanley stated that the Board had requested to make Teen Centers and Recreation Centers "Weapons Free Zones" legislatively in the same way schools are. However, this was not successful because the legislation was vetoed by the Governor. Chairman Hanley explained that the Attorney General said on the last page of the letter to Delegate John H. Rust, Jr. dated May 20, 1997, it was also his opinion "that Fairfax County may adopt reasonable regulations governing the public use of, and access to, facilities and police stations. Such regulations may include a prohibition against entering a facility or police station while in possession of any weapon, including those specified in the 1997 Senate Bills, concealed handgun permitted under §18.2-308(H), and firearms contemplated in §15.1-2915."

Chairman Hanley stated that the Board had directed the County Attorney to present the Board with a proposed ordinance for advertisement to implement the Attorney General's other recommendations regarding registration and prohibition of other types of weapons. Because the proposed ordinance does not prohibit firearms, it does not make Recreation and Teen Centers "Weapons Free Zones" because guns would be legal if they were registered at the door.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to develop a regulation through a Procedural Memorandum to implement the Attorney General's recommendation. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion which carried by unanimous vote.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.
