39.BOARD MATTER ON BEHALF OF SUPERVISOR BULOVA REGARDING SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 93-B-042 LAKE ACCOTINK PARK (Tape 3)

On behalf of Supervisor Bulova, Chairman Hanley stated that in 1994, Special Exception

Amendment Application SEA 93-B-042 was approved for the core area facilities development of pedestrian and vehicular circulation. For more efficient operation of the site, some changes to this Special Exception need to be made and Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 93-B-042 has been submitted to the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) for review.

So as not to delay this important park project, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and, on behalf of Supervisor Bulova, moved that the Board approve concurrent processing for the expedited review of the Site Plan and Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 93-B-042 for the Lake Accotink Core Area Renovation. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board for the proposed Site Plan review and Special Exception Amendment Application and does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of all applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards.

Staff has estimated the annual cost of the program to be $175,000 to implement this program, assuming seven Ozone Red Alert days per year, with free rides provided in both the morning and evening peak periods on the Fairfax CONNECTOR..

Chairman Hanley moved that the $175,000 be added as a Consideration Item for the Fiscal Year (FY) 1998 Carryover Budget Review. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Mendelsohn and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

47.CLOSURE OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA (DC) DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS FACILITY LOCATED IN LORTON (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley reported that this past week Congress and the White House have agreed that the District of Columbia (DC) Department of Corrections Facility Located In Lorton should be closed over a four year period and that the Fairfax County Water Authority would receive 150 acres, 100 acres would go to the County for ballfields, and the rest would go to the United States (U.S.) Department of the Interior. She noted that in 1995, in anticipation of these land use issues, the Board established a citizen task force to develop a plan for redevelopment if the land passed to private ownership. That proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendment received a favorable recommendation from the Planning Commission and will be forwarded to the Board for public hearing in October.

Citing a desire expressed by Congressman Thomas M. Davis, III, and others to see the entire property "land banked" or left in open space, Chairman Hanley noted that to achieve this, the entire property could either be deeded directly to the County or have that open space restriction placed on it when conveyed to the Department of the Interior.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to request the Congressional delegation to convey the:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and following discussion, Chairman Hanley clarified that her motion does not bypass the citizen process already in place should this action not occur.

Following further discussion, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to send a letter of appreciation to Congressman James P. Moran and Congressman Thomas M. Davis, III for their efforts and accomplishments with this legislation. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following continued discussion, Chairman Hanley clarified that the words "park land" in her motion referred to active or passive park land.

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that there is an approximately five-acre parcel located on Crest Lane by the George Washington Parkway, Tax Map Reference 22-4((1)), Parcel 19, which is the subject of a proposed four-lot subdivision plan, as well as pending litigation.

However, through the cooperation and efforts of the property owner, Crest Partners, L.C., as well as the impacted surrounding neighbors, the landowners are now considering a two-lot subdivision of the property.

Accordingly, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) to concurrently process the Preliminary and Final Subdivision Plats (Preliminary Subdivision Plat Number 8816-RP-01-1) and the associated waiver requests, including Public Street Waiver Number 018697. He noted that the landowners and their counsel understand that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable conditions, regulations, or adopted standards, and it does not prejudice the consideration of the proposed Public Street Frontage Waiver Request or the pending litigation in any way. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

52.LEASING OF SPACE WITHIN THE MCLEAN GOVERNMENTAL CENTER FOR THE MCLEAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE (Tape 3)

He stated that this office use is providing a public function and is being done on behalf of the Board.

To clarify that this is a public use, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that, for purposes of the Zoning Ordinance, the McLean Chamber of Commerce's use of office space, in accordance with the approved lease, is being implemented under the direct authority of the Board. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey.

Following clarification by David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

Hechinger is located in a commercial area of the County, zoned in the C-8 District, and the store provides its own cleaning and refuse removal service.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this request to staff to proceed with the consideration process for removal from a leaf collection district. Without objection, it was so ordered.

55.VACANCY RATE IN TYSONS CORNER (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Fairfax Newsletter recently covered a story on the office vacancy rate in Tysons Corner. This report indicates that the Tysons Corner vacancy rate has dropped to 3.61 percent. This figure demonstrates that the office market is rebounding. He added that KPMG Peat Marwick is scheduled to build a 307,000 square foot building to house its headquarters of 150,000 square feet and anticipates leasing the remaining 157,000 square feet as speculative office. In addition to this proposed construction, Supervisor Connolly met with representatives from the Mark Winkler Company and NADA to discuss their plans to build two speculative office buildings with a combined total of 500,000 square feet of new office space.

Supervisor Connolly said that WMATA is requesting a commitment of $50,000 from Fairfax County towards the cost of changing the name of the Dunn Loring Station.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

59.REDESIGN OF THE SHREVE ROAD, PINECASTLE ROAD, AND BUCKLEW DRIVE INTERSECTION (Tape 4)

(R)Supervisor Connolly reminded Board Members that on May 16, 1994, the Board endorsed the use of Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) incidental construction funding for the redesign of Shreve Road's intersection with Pinecastle Road and Buckelew Drive.

Supervisor Connolly said that the intersection is characterized by a sharp S-curve, a steep grade, and very limited sight distances. Further, the intersection is bisected by the Washington and Old Dominion Trail, which is heavily traveled by in-line skaters, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Also, on one corner of the intersection, is a very popular public swimming pool.

Supervisor Connolly said that he was recently informed that VDOT's Secondary Roads Division determined that this project has increased in scope to the point that it no longer qualifies as an incidental construction project. Further, the project is on "indefinitely deferred status" until the Board moved to include it in the Six-Year Program.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved adoption of the Resolution, in which the Office of Transportation is directed to work with VDOT to include the redesign of the Shreve Road, Pinecastle Road, Buckelew Drive intersection in the update of the Secondary Six-Year Plan. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor McConnell, and Chairman Hanley voting "AYE," Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

60.NEW 18-HOLE MINI GOLF COURSE OPENS AT JEFFERSON DISTRICT PARK (Tape 4)

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, action was taken to formally defer these applications. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#94.)

62.RESUBDIVISION/BOUNDARY LINE ADJUSTMENT FOR RANDOM HILLS LAND BAY A3 (Tape 4)

Supervisor Frey stated that he had been asked to assist the residents in Random Hills Land Bay A3 with a resubdivision/boundary line adjustment through conveyance of common space to lot owners. According to the attorney for the residents, the proposed conveyance is a two-foot wide strip of land which would enlarge the townhouse lots and enable the construction of decks.

Supervisor Frey said that through his initial contact with the staff of the Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP), it was determined that Paragraph 4 of Section 2-702 of the Zoning Ordinance prohibits the disposition of common open space without first offering to dedicate the land to the County.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board decline the dedication of the two-foot wide strip of land in Random Hills Land Bay 3 as referenced in the May 30, 1997 letter from Gail P. Miller, Esquire, as distributed to the Board. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

On behalf of Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Frey announced that the Reston American Little League All-Star Team won the District IV State Championship held in Danville on Friday, August 1, 1997 with a 9-7 victory over Bristol.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

66.TRUCK VIOLATIONS JEOPARDIZE TRANSPORTATION SAFETY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter regarding the joint inspection of commercial motor carriers located on Lorton Road by the Fairfax County Police Department Motor Carrier Safety Section and the Virginia State Police which occurred on July 22, 1997 resulting in 270 violations and 53 summonses issued out of a total of 110 trucks and trailers examined. He stressed his concern about this safety matter.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the issue of inspections of commercial motor carriers being intensified with greater regularity be referred to the Police Department and the County Executive for their review and recommendation as to how greater compliance with safety and maintenance regulations for trucks and trailers moving through Fairfax County's streets and highways, can be ensured, including consideration of reaching out to the trucking industry to determine if it can be made more responsible in this matter. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked to amend the motion to request assistance from the State and State Police as the first course of action because this is a State function, and this was accepted.

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

67.HOUSE ON HUNTINGTON AVENUE SHAKES, RATTLES AND ROLLS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that a constituent recently contacted his office to advise him that during the past six months he and his neighbors have been experiencing severe vibrations resulting from the passage and speed of buses and trucks on Huntington Avenue. He said that roadway and subsurface of the road are defective and patches will not work.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board refer this issue to staff to determine what can be done to improve this steadily deteriorating condition immediately at the properties located at 2200 to 2221 Huntington Avenue. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

68.REQUEST COORDINATION OF REVITALIZATION AND ANNUAL PLAN REVIEW (APR) EFFORTS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that the Commercial Revitalization Area communities are concluding work with consultant teams to develop plans and strategies for attracting investment and redevelopment. These efforts have been scheduled to coincide with the County's Annual Plan Review (APR) since they are likely to result in recommendations for amendments to

the Comprehensive Plan. In response to the scheduling demands of the Board, however, review of these studies by the Revitalization Policy Committee and the Board has been postponed until September. This conflicts with progress on APR nominations which cannot be fully prepared without the guidance and concurrence of these bodies.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the County Executive and the Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP) to work with the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) and report on September 8, 1997 with a process which will:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

69.HOW LONG TAXABLE LIFE? (Tape 5)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, there was discussion of delinquent taxpayers. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#16.)

Supervisor Hyland noted that he had reviewed the list of delinquent taxpayers on the computer printouts available to the Board outside the main conference room today and was amazed at the length of the list of taxpayers owing the County five dollars or less. He distributed to Board Members a copy of a letter that he received from a citizen who has inquired about the taxable life of two items of personal property which are more than 25 years old.

Supervisor Hyland said that the items specifically referred to in the letter are a boat trailer built in 1964 which the citizen purchased in 1977 for $800 and a row boat purchased in 1970 for a cost of $170. Tax on these items result in annual revenue to the County of $7.31 for the trailer and $4.22 for the boat. He noted it would seem that somewhere along the line, an item of personal property would reach its maximum useful life and would fail to have tangible value.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to staff for review and recommendation as to the efficacy of the present personal property tax requirements and whether they should be changed to reflect a maximum useful taxable life. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley clarified that the County does not collect for amounts less than five dollars and a brief discussion ensued.

70.STAFF NEEDED TO ENSURE CONTINUANCE OF COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM (CIP) (Tape 5)

(BACs)

Supervisor Hyland said that in recent communications from members of the Community Improvement Program (CIP) Committee, concerns have been expressed about the current lack of sufficient staffing for the Committee and its mission. Just as there exists the need for Revitalization efforts, community improvement plays a critical part in rehabilitating aging parts of the County.

Supervisor Hyland stated that until recently, the CIP had adequate staffing to support the Committee's activities. Because of the value of the CIP, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to the County Executive to determine how adequate staff support may be provided to meet the needs of the CIP Committee and ensure the continuance of this important program. Without objection, it was so ordered.

71.LORTON LITTLE LEAGUE REQUESTS DONATION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that the Lorton Little League has requested the Board to consider donating an obsolete tractor which the County would no longer need. Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Park Authority, Department of Public Works Department (DPW), School Board, et cetera to consider the donation of a used tractor to the Lorton Little League for the purpose of maintaining the Lower Potomac Pollution Control Plant softball fields in tournament condition. Without objection, it was so ordered.

72.STREET LIGHT FUNDING REQUEST (Tape 5)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, action was taken by the Board to add Consideration Items for the Board's Carryover Review. See Clerk Summary Items CL#34 and CL#45.)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter concerning funding for one street light at the intersection of Silverbrook Road and Silverview Drive and the surrounding area.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, Deputy County Executive for Planning and Development, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board add this item as a Consideration Item in the Carryover Budget. This motion, the second to which was indistinguishable, carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

A brief discussion followed with input from Mr. Griffin.

73.CITY OF ALEXANDRIA'S ATTEMPT TO COLLECT PERSONAL PROPERTY TAXES (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter regarding correspondence he received from a County resident about an attempt by the City of Alexandria to collect personal property taxes for a boat. Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Department of Tax Administration to research this issue to determine what, if anything, needs to be clarified between the Virginia Game and Inland Fisheries, the City of Alexandria and Fairfax County regarding the issue the constituent has raised and to report its findings. Without objection, it was so ordered.

A brief discussion ensued.

74.APPOINTMENT TO THE HUMAN SERVICES COUNCIL (Tape 5)

(APPT)

Supervisor Hyland moved the appointment of Ms. Maureen McGuire-Kuletz to fill the unexpired term of Mr. Paul Krizak as a Mount Vernon District Representative to the Human Services Council. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Mendelsohn and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

75.EXPEDITED PROCESSING FOR REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1997-MV-008 (Tape 5)

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

76.NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF COUNTIES (NACo) ELECTION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland expressed his appreciation to Chairman Hanley for placing his name into nomination for First Vice-President of the National Association of Counties (NACo) at its recent conference. He also expressed appreciation to Supervisor Connolly for assisting in that effort. He noted that he won 30 of the 46 states represented and tied in one state, but did not win the overall election.

A brief discussion ensued.

77.JEFFERSON MANOR COFFEE MUG (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman displayed a coffee mug he had received from the Jefferson Manor community which is celebrating its 50th anniversary on September 6, 1997.

78.COMPLETION OF THE FAIRFAX COUNTY PARKWAY THROUGH THE ENGINEERING PROVING GROUNDS (EPG) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman distributed to the Board copies of a letter he had written to Paul W. Johnson, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations and Housing, concerning the two-mile missing section of the Fairfax County Parkway. This section prevents the eastern end of the Parkway from linking with Reston. He briefed the Board on the efforts to convey the land at the eastern and southern edges of the Engineering Proving Grounds (EPG) to the County from the Army.

Following discussion, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board go on record by sending a letter to Mr. Johnson requesting the outgranting of the land for this segment of the Parkway with copies to the Congressional Delegation. This motion, the second to which was indistinguishable, carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

79.FRANCONIA-SPRINGFIELD BUS SERVICE CHANGES (Tape 5)

Supervisor McConnell advised the Board about a bus service issue regarding the Franconia-Springfield bus service changes implemented on June 30, 1997. She noted that both she and Supervisor Bulova have been receiving calls regarding bus service between Burke Centre and the Pentagon, and between Burke Centre and the Franconia-Springfield Metrorail Station. She stated that the Route 18P busses leaving the Pentagon to travel to Burke Centre during the afternoon rush hour are overcrowded. She said that she has discussed the problem with staff from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and that they are working with staff from the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (WMATA) to examine solutions.

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

This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.

80.USE OF THE BOARD'S OWNED PROPERTY FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE BURKE VOLUNTEER FIRE STATION (Tape 5)

Supervisor McConnell reminded the Board that the Burke community was impacted by the tragic accidental fire on January 10, 1997 that damaged and resulted in the condemnation of the Burke Volunteer Fire Station located on Burke Lake Road. She stated that staff and the Burke Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department are working together to construct a new facility and return full fire and rescue services to the Burke community.

Supervisor McConnell stated that the preliminary engineering is complete for this development. To fully develop the existing site and meet the Chesapeake Bay Ordinance (CBO), storm water quality measures must be included in the development. Due to the flood plain and limited site area, onsite options to meet the CBO are limited. The Board's owned parcel, Tax Map Reference 78-1-1-22B, which is contiguous to the fire station site, can help serve this purpose. Placing this land in a conservation easement and leaving it in its undisturbed state, will assist the fire station development in meeting the storm water quality requirements. Staff is analyzing the options of making this property available for the volunteers' utilization which will be in accordance with County policies regarding project funding.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board:

This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

81.MENDED HEARTS (Tape 5)

Supervisor McConnell reported that the Northern Virginia Chapter 200 of Mended Hearts, Incorporated, will host the 1997 Fall Conference of the Mid-Atlantic Region Mended Hearts on October 31-November 2, 1997. Mended Hearts is a national non-profit service organization with headquarters in Dallas, Texas dedicated to the alleviation of trauma associated with heart disease and surgery.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to present a Proclamation on behalf of the Board designating the week of October 26 as "Mended Hearts Week" in Fairfax County. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Dix being absent.
