ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

22. FAIRFAX COUNTY HOUSING PROGRAM (Tapes 4-5)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, this was discussion of this item. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#18.)

Chairman Hanley circulated to the Board copies of information regarding the Fairfax County Housing Program.

23. LOCAL GOVERNMENT FINANCING (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley said that recently the issue of how local government is financed in Virginia made the news again. In addition to yesterday's Washington Post article, there are letters from the Fairfax County Federation of Citizens Associations and the Northern Virginia Building Industry Association (NVBIA) regarding their interest in this issue and a recent Fairfax Times editorial all calling on Fairfax County to take a closer look at its tax structure.

Chairman Hanley stated that, on a number of occasions, the County has studied the various sources of revenue available to the County, which include the Smith Commission Report (1988), the Citizens Budget Overview Committee (CBOC) Final Report (1989), the Cole Commission Report (1992), the County Government Committee (1993), and the County Revenue and Expenditure Task Force Report (CREx) (1996).

Chairman Hanley noted that all of these reports conclude that Fairfax County, like all Counties in Virginia, is limited by State law in its ability to diversify its revenue base, which is so heavily dependant on property taxes.

Chairman Hanley said that the State has also studied this issue, which includes the JLARC Report on State/Local Relations and Service Responsibilities (1993), the Report of the Joint Subcommittee Studying Local Revenue Sources (1995), and two reports from the Joint Legislative Committee studying State and local responsibilities and taxing authority.

The debate over local responsibilities and taxing authority this year has been drowned out by the need to address the issue of the State's paying for an exemption of some portion of the local personal property tax on cars.

Chairman Hanley said that Fairfax County has covered this topic thoroughly and comprehensively and defined the problem as one that is not unique to Fairfax and requires a solution that must come from the State level. The Commonwealth has also studied this topic extensively, and more than one commission has issued recommendations for improving not only the tax structure, but the very nature of the relationship between State and local governments.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board request the Governor to convene a Blue Ribbon Commission on tax reform, made up of state and local government leaders, along with business and citizen representatives from around the Commonwealth, charged with assimilating all of this study data and to craft a comprehensive solution to the financing of state and local government operations in Virginia and to include a review of transportation funding. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by unanimous vote.

24. FAIRFAX COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT'S CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS BUREAU, YOUTH SERVICES DIVISION, AND THE GANG INVESTIGATIONS UNIT (Tape 5)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board observed a moment of silence for Mr. David C. Albrecht. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#2.)

Chairman Hanley stated that residents recently received an unpleasant and tragic reminder that while the community remains one of the safest in the country, the County is still not immune from violent crime. David C. Albrecht lost his life earlier this month on the grounds of Marshall High School, where he had fled believing he had found a safe place to hide from his attackers.

Chairman Hanley further stated that those allegedly responsible for this heinous act were quickly apprehended, thanks largely to the work of the Fairfax County Police Department's Criminal Investigations Bureau, the Youth Services Division, and its Gang Investigations Unit.

Chairman Hanley said that the federal grant which funds significant portions of the gang unit's positions will expire during Fiscal Year (FY) 1999, and it is not yet clear how those funds will be replaced. It is extremely important that this unit continue to operate in Fairfax County. Not only was it instrumental in making swift arrests after this incident, there is no way of measuring how many similar incidents have been avoided because of the diligent work of the police officers assigned to this unit.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to consider this matter and return to the Board with a plan that will ensure continued funding of the Youth Services Division and its Gang Investigations unit. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Mendelsohn and carried by unanimous vote.

25. SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley said that in the report of the Fairfax County Initiative on Youth Violence, the Initiative identified seven key areas to be developed by the newly established organization, the Fairfax Partnership for Youth, to reduce youth violence. In several of the areas identified, much needed attention is given to prevention as a strategy for addressing the issue. However, area seven, Advocacy for Youth, again raises the need to support additional School Resource Officers (SROs) in the school and community.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to provide information as part of the Fiscal Year (FY) 1999 budget process on how the County will meet the goal of providing SROs in all middle and high schools as part of the continuing effort to reduce youth violence. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell and carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide information on providing middle School Age Child Care (SACC) Programs. Without objection, it was so ordered.

26. ESTABLISHMENT OF A GANG INFORMATION HOTLINE (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley stated that in the Report of the Fairfax County Initiative on Youth Violence was the Steering Committee's special program with gang members where the young people spoke openly about their gang involvement. Chairman Hanley further stated that Supervisors Connolly and Mendelsohn have discussed the possibility of a hotline to allow young people interested in sharing or seeking information to do so confidentially.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved jointly with Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Mendelsohn that the Board direct the Police Department to provide a recommendation on the feasibility of establishing and implementing such a hotline. The second to this motion was inaudible.

Supervisor Dix asked to amend the motion to include a broader concept of a hotline for youth issues to include obtaining information and who the information might be shared with, and this was accepted.

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

27. PUBLIC SCHOOL AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT CALIBRATION IN VIRGINIA 1997, A COMPENDIUM OF EXISTING PROGRAMS (Tape 5).

Chairman Hanley circulated a booklet distributed by the Institute of Government titled Public School and Local Government Calibration in Virginia 1997, a Compendium of Existing Programs, and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to contact the Institute of Government to request enough copies for the entire Board. Without objection, it was so ordered.

28. LETTER INVITING THE BOARD TO ATTEND A SEMINAR TITLED "KIOSK PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE" (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley shared a letter she had received from the Interactive Public Service Task Force inviting the entire Board to attend a seminar on March 13, 1998 called "Kiosk, Past, Present, and Future."

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

29. TOWN MEETINGS FOR THE DRANESVILLE DISTRICT (Tape 5)

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, additional town meetings were announced. See Clerk's Summary Items CL#36 and CL#66.)

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that during the weekend of February 21-22, 1998, the Langley High School Girls Swim and Dive Teams competed in and won their first state swimming and diving championship held in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Two weeks earlier, the Langley Saxons won both the Northern Region and Liberty District Titles, completing the triple crown of high school swimming.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite the team to appear before the Board on March 30, 1998 for recognition and congratulations. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix and carried by unanimous vote.

31. C0NCURRENT PROCESSING FOR THE THRALL PROPERTY, RIVER BEND GOLF AND COUNTY CLUB, INCORPORATED, AND THE ROKEBY FARMS SUBDIVISION (Tape 5)

This motion does not relieve the applicants from complying with provisions of all applicable conditions, regulations or adopted standards relative to the subdivision plan, nor does it in any way anticipate or guarantee approval of the final subdivision plan. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey and carried by unanimous vote.

32. IMMANUEL PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, MCLEAN AND GARDEN MEMORIAL PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, ANACOSTIA (Tape 5)

Supervisor Mendelsohn mentioned that the February issue of the Washingtonian Magazine had a lengthy article spotlighting a church in the Dranesville District that has distinguished itself as one that acts to build bridges and fill gaps between communities. The Immanuel Presbyterian Church, McLean, under the leadership of congregation member John Nields and the blessing of John Sonnenday, Immanuel's minister, espoused the "I have a Dream" program and formed a partnership with Garden Memorial Presbyterian Church in Anacostia. Together, these two churches adopted the incoming sixth-grade class at Ketcham Elementary School in Anacostia where 80 percent of the children qualified for the free school lunch program. They have been extremely successful in their efforts to mentor and tutor youngsters and support them emotionally through their education.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives of the Immanuel Presbyterian Church to appear before the Board on March 30, 1998 to recognize them for their outstanding contribution to children.

38. NOBEL EDUCATION DYNAMICS, INCORPORATED - SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 86-D-059 (Tape 6)

39. TOWNES OF WATERFORD SUBDIVISION IN RESTON (Tape 6)

Supervisor Dix said that he has been asked to assist with a Site Plan revision related to the Townes at Waterford in Reston. The approved development plan for this project showed 48 townhouse units. A Preliminary Plan was approved allowing for the development of 143 lots, including the lot which is the focus of this request (Lot 23). However, due to the existence of a Virginia Power utility box on the property, the lot was deleted prior to the approval of the Site Plan by in January 1997, and a small portion of that area (0.0178 acre) was designated as open space. Virginia Power has since removed the utility box, and the developer, Stanley Martin, proposes to develop the subject lot as was shown on the previous Development Plan and Preliminary Plan. A Site Plan revision was submitted to add Lot 23 back into the site and has been approved pending plat recordation. This revision is in accord with all applicable zoning and Site Plan requirements. Further, none of the units have been constructed in this section of the development.

Supervisor Dix said that during the review of the proposed deed of resubdivision, it was determined that the Zoning Ordinance prohibits the disposition of common open space without first offering to dedicate such land to the County. Given that the area in question is located between homeowner owned open space and townhouse units, and the fact that it is less than two-hundredths of an acre, the County would have no interest in the property. Approval of a motion to reject the offer of dedication of the property in question by the Board would enable subdivision to occur.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board decline to accept dedication of the 0.0178 acre parcel of land in the Townes at Waterford as referenced in the February 3, 1998 letter from Jo Anne Bitner on behalf of Stanley Martin Communities, L.L.C. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to simultaneously and expeditiously review the Public Improvement Plan and Record Plat for the Cornelson Estate. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

45. LAKE BRADDOCK'S GIRLS GYMNASTICS TEAM WINS AAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP (Tape 6)

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Bulova jointly moved that the Board direct staff to invite the members of the Lake Braddock Secondary Schools Girls gymnastics team to appear before the Board to be recognized for their outstanding accomplishment.

47. CODE OF VIRGINIA, SECTION 3.1-796.93:1 - AUTHORITY TO CONTROL DANGEROUS OR VICIOUS DOGS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that she recently met a family living in Burke Centre who has had repeated problems with a neighbor's dog. Attached to her Board Matter is a letter from the family describing incidents where their dog "Pele," while being walked on a leash, was attacked by a larger dog that had gotten loose from her owners. The letter includes a petition, signed by approximately 107 people, calling for changes to the law regarding dog attacks. Also attached is a chronology of attacks and a listing of veterinarian expenses. She circulated pictures of the injuries inflicted on Pele and his owner by the other dog.

Supervisor Bulova said that her constituents pressed charges under the "leash law" against the attacking dog owner by going to a Magistrate. She said that the meeting was constructive, but the current Code of Virginia regarding "Dangerous or Vicious Dogs" seemed to be inadequate. Also attached to her Board Matter is a memorandum from Helene Cassell, Acting Director, Department of Animal Control, suggesting a change to the Code of Virginia along with language from that chapter.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland.

Supervisor Frey asked to amend the motion to include input from the Animal Shelter Advisory Commission, and this was accepted.

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

48. FAITH IN ACTION - WELFARE REFORM UPDATE FOR THE FAITH COMMUNITY (Tape 6)

The purpose of the event was to let the religious community know about plans for Welfare Reform and to explore opportunities for partnerships between local government and County churches, synagogues and mosques to better serve people who are in need.

Supervisor Bulova announced that on March 25, 1998 a second Faith in Action event will take place at Saint Matthews. This will be an action-oriented event for Faith community members and County agencies to learn about the effects of Welfare Reform.

Supervisor Bulova reviewed the events that will take place and she announced that the guest speaker will be Reverend Ronald K. Moore, Director, Faith and Families Program. She invited Board Members and anyone who would be interested in this program to join her for a very interesting morning. To register in advance, please contact Saint Matthew's United Methodist Church at 978-3500 or Supervisor Bulova's office at 425-9300.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland.

Following brief input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on motion which carried by unanimous vote.

51. DULLES AREA TRANSPORTATION ASSOCIATION REQUEST REGARDING METROBUS ROUTE 12R (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey called the Board's attention to a letter he had received from the Dulles Area Transportation Association requesting the Office of Transportation (OT) to consider a minor modification of the 12R Metrobus Route to accommodate new businesses in the Westfields area. Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this request to OT. Without objection, it was so ordered.

52. INTERNATIONAL BUILDING SAFETY WEEK AND BUILDING SAFETY COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP AWARD (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey stated that for many years International Building Safety Week has been observed across the country to increase public awareness of the importance of building codes and construction safety. This year International Building Safety Week will be observed the week of April 5-11, 1998.

53. RESOLUTION FROM THE FEDERATION OF CITIZENS ASSOCIATIONS REGARDING THE CREATION OF AN OFFICE OF THE ENVIRONMENT (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland called the Board's attention to a resolution from the Fairfax County Federation of Citizens Associations requesting the establishment of an "Office of the Environment." The Federation's proposal is the result of the County Executive's efforts to consolidate the Department of Public Works (DPW) and the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) to achieve efficiency and economy. The Federation states that it would find it more purposeful if environmental functions were folded into one single supervised office whose responsibility would be to protect and enhance the natural environment of the County. Supervisor Hyland outlined each of the Federation's recommendations and noted its request for the name of the consolidated department to be the "Department of Environmental Management and Services."

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the County Executive to review the Federation's recommendations and report with his findings for information, recommendation, and/or action. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by unanimous vote.

The applicant has determined that the Board is the owner of right-of-way along Lord Fairfax Road that was deeded on August 31, 1936 and recorded on September 22, 1936. The applicant proposed to include a portion of this right-of-way in the rezoning request being made on this property.

The ISTEA bills were not dealt with in the last session and only last week Congress has started this process again. She expressed a hope for approval of a multi-year funding bill. She noted the importance of pursuing the County's funding requests as well as coordinating the County's work with the County's Congressional delegation during this process.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board authorize the County's Purchasing Agent to extend the current contract with Government Relations Incorporated for an additional year in accordance with the terms and conditions of the current contract.
