ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

23. ACCESSIBILITY TO COUNTY WEB SITE (Tape 2)

With a notation that Fairfax County continues to make important government information and services available through the County Web Site, Chairman Hanley cited the importance of making every effort to ensure that the site is accessible to all County residents, even those who have sight or hearing impairments. In fact, the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) requires that accessibility features, or "electronic curbcuts," be built into the design of all governmental web sites. The National League of Cities, in its publication ADA Update, suggests a number of steps local government can take to improve the accessibility of its sites.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct the Department of Information Technology (DIT) to:

n Review the contents of the County Web Site; and

n Take whatever steps necessary to ensure that every effort is being made to make the information provided as widely accessible as possible.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

24. HEALTH INSURANCE FOR SMALL BUSINESS EMPLOYEES (Tape 2)

Chairman Hanley stated that in the early 1990's, Fairfax County, the Economic Development Authority (EDA), and Inova Health System investigated the possibility of promoting insurance for small businesses and their employees. At the time, it was concluded that it was financially infeasible.

Chairman Hanley noted, however, that the Commonwealth of Virginia and Inova Health System are presently exploring a possible pilot project to determine if other approaches might work in achieving the important goal of making health insurance affordable to the County's small businesses.

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct the County Executive, with the advice of the Health Care Advisory Board (HCAB), to:

n Determine how the County might assist the State and Inova in developing a demonstration health insurance product for the employees of the County's small businesses; and

n Report on how the County might assist in this effort.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked to amend the motion to include the participation of the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce in this effort, and this was accepted.

Following discussion, Supervisor Dix moved to amend the motion to add, following the words "assist the State and Inova" in bullet one above, "or other potential health care providers who might wish to participate...." This motion was seconded by Supervisor Mendelsohn and CARRIED by a recorded vote of seven, Supervisor Gross voting "NAY," Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

Both were instrumental in ensuring the success of the recent MCCP Masquerade and Awards Ball. The event raised enough funds to enroll nearly 500 additional children into the program.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to invite the two outstanding individuals, Ms. Oklewicz and Mr. Carlton, to appear before the Board to be recognized for their contributions to the MCCP programs. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

27. INCLUSION OF MULTI-PURPOSE TRAILS IN THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF ROAD PROJECTS (Tape 2)

The Committee has also alerted the Chairman to the fact that bicycle and pedestrian access is rarely considered as part of the early design phase of road construction projects.

Based on the recommendations received from the Committee, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to:

n Develop a County Policy to ensure that trails included in the Comprehensive Plan are included in the design and construction of road projects; and

n Submit this Policy to the Board for approval.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Following discussion, Supervisor Kauffman asked to amend the motion to include the words "or acceptable substitutes" after Comprehensive Plan in the first bullet above, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors supports only those legislative proposals for elimination or reduction of the personal property tax that guarantee full revenue replacement (including future growth and inflation), or State assumption of service responsibilities, local or shared between the State and local government, equal in amount to the revenue proposed to be reduced or eliminated; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT, copies of this Resolution be provided to the Governor-elect and the members of the Northern Virginia legislative delegation.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland.

Following discussion, Supervisor Bulova asked to amend the motion to change the language in the second Whereas to read:

and this was accepted.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked to amend the motion to change the language in the Now, therefore, be it resolved, to read:

32. JOINT REQUEST TO DESIGNATE SPECIAL STUDY AREA (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hyland said that in the spring of this year, many citizens in the Mount Vernon and Lee Districts began working diligently with several County-commissioned consultants to formulate a Richmond Highway "vision."

Ultimately, in combining both the "vision" and the market analysis, several Comprehensive Plan change recommendations were made by the study consultants. In addition, the Southeast Fairfax Development Corporation (SFDC) has submitted a number of Plan nominations as part of the 1997-1998 Area Plans Review (APR) process that would promote revitalization.

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

These changes may include, but are not limited to, planning objectives, land use and transportation recommendations and urban design guidelines; and

Supervisor Frey stated that Toll Brothers, Incorporated, has filed an application to rezone approximately 33 acres located on both sides of Avery Road off West Ox Road. The applicant previously received permission from the Board to include Avery Road right-of-way in their application, and the applicant intends to vacate it and develop a different road network if the rezoning application is approved. It has now come to the applicant's attention that a small portion (0.0912 acre) of West Ox Road right-of-way will also need to be included in the application and subsequently vacated.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board concur in the inclusion of a 0.0912 acre portion of existing West Ox Road right-of-way in pending rezoning application RZ 1997-SU-046. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board of Supervisors on the proposed rezoning application and does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

Once the proffered requirement is eliminated, a more standard water quality method will be substituted.

Supervisor Frey said that because the mini-storage facility associated with this application is already under construction, the applicant is anxious to have this issue resolved in a timely manner. He moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the scheduling and allow concurrent processing of the plans associated with Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 88-S-065. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board of Supervisors on the proposed application and does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board on the proposed applications and does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

At the request of the applicant, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board approve simultaneous processing of all plans associated with Proffered Condition Amendment Application/Final Development Plan Amendment Application PCA/FDPA 86-S-071 filed in the name of Trinity Center pending action on the applications. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board on the proposed applications and does not relieve the applicant from the requirement to make changes which might be approved or compliance with the provisions of all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

55. STATUS OF HOMES PURCHASED BY THE STATE FOR THE WIDENING OF ROUTE 123 (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix stated that Supervisor McConnell had been contacted by several constituents and homeowner associations located on Route 123 who expressed concern about the homes that are being purchased by the State for the widening of that road. He noted that only those homes that fell into the category of hardship cases were considered for advanced land acquisition on this project. Some of the now vacant homes have not been maintained and are becoming eyesores. Supervisor McConnell had faced a similar situation during the construction of the Fairfax County Parkway when homes were not maintained and demolition was delayed. She does not want a repeat of that situation with the widening of Route 123 and indicated that these homes need to be either leased or demolished as soon as possible.

Accordingly, on behalf of Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to identify those homes that have been acquired as part of the Route 123 widening project and to work with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to develop a solution to this problem. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

His company manufactures the Strieter-Lite Wild Animal Highway Reflector System which is used to warn animals against crossing the road at night when vehicles are present. Supervisor Dix noted that Supervisor McConnell understands that Montgomery County is currently testing the system in their large deer population areas. She believes that this system could serve as a viable alternative in making the roads safer in particular sections of Fairfax County where deer accidents have become common.

Accordingly, on behalf of Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to:

n Identify the pros and cons of the Strieter Reflector System, and other similar systems, to be included in the December 8, 1997 report to the Board on deer management; and

n Provide any information regarding Montgomery County's pilot program.

This motion was jointly seconded by Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Frey.
