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

46. COLUMBIA PIKE SERVICE DRIVE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross stated that for the past two years Bailey's Crossroads business owners, Fairfax County Police, residents and her office have been looking for ways to convince the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to restrict parking on the service drive that runs along the south side of the 5600 block of Columbia Pike, in front of the Rock Spring Professional Center and the Nassif Building.

Supervisor Gross stated that, although there are a number of reasons why all concerned parties would like to see parking restricted on this service road, the root cause is the large number of commercial trucks which park on the service road, often overnight. Aside from being aesthetically displeasing, and detracting from the County's revitalization effort, the location of these trucks is contributing to a gang and graffiti problem. A large cement wall runs along the service road and when large trucks park here, it gives gang members cover to tag the wall and creates a dangerous, unlighted situation for pedestrians and police officers.

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

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

47. CAR SALES ON LEESBURG PIKE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross informed the Board of the frustration of the Culmore community by a stretch of service drive along the south side of Leesburg Pike between Nevius Street and Glenmore Drive. This area is used regularly as an open market for car sales and attempts to end it have been thwarted while neither the State nor the County have claimed ownership of a small section of the service drive.

Supervisor Gross stated that she contacted the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) requesting that "No Parking" signs be implemented in this area. VDOT responded by saying that "vehicles parking there do not create an unsafe condition" and recommended that she contact the police to enforce the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 82 (Motor Vehicle and Traffic), Section 82-5-19, which addresses the situation of vehicles for sale parked on State roads. Further investigation by the Traffic Division revealed that not all of the roadway is State dedicated. A small section just east of Nevius Street to Glenmore Drive is private property and is not under State maintenance. Unfortunately, enforcement options are limited unless the entire stretch of service road falls into the State system. The police and the community would like to clean up this eyesore, but this unusual situation must be remedied first.

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

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

48. EXPEDITED PROCESSING FOR REZONING APPLICATION ON LANDMARK COMMUNITIES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross informed the Board that Mr. Scott Herrick and Landmark Communities have filed a Rezoning Application for property commonly known as the Annandale Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) property.

To meet its contractual requirements with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), the applicant has requested that public hearings be expedited and that the Site Plan processing be concurrent with the Rezoning request.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to:

This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on the Rezoning 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 McConnell being out of the room.
