118. EXPEDITED AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR KLINE TYSONS IMPORTS, INCORPORATED (Tape 19)

Supervisor Connolly stated that Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 78-D-075 has been filed for property identified as Tax Map 29-1((1))-15 and 16 and located at 8606-8610 Leesburg Pike. This property is currently used as a vehicle sale, rental and ancillary service establishment (Kline Tysons Imports, Incorporated), and it has been so used since 1973.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of the Office of Comprehensive Planning (OCP) and the Acting Director of the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) to expeditiously and concurrently process the plans associated with Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 78-D-075. He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all applicable County ordinances, rules, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of this application in any way. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

119. NATIONAL CAPITAL LAND AND DEVELOPMENT COMPANY (Tape 19)

In regard to property located at 8000 Idlywood Road in Dunn Loring, Supervisor Connolly stated that the applicant, National Capital Land and Development Company, has submitted a rezoning application for this property identified as Tax Map Reference Number 39-4((1)) parcel 127. This application seeks to rezone the subject property from the R-1 District to the PDH-4 District. Since the Board is the owner of the Elm Place right-of-way between Sandburg Street and Morgan Lane and a portion of this right-of-way is proposed to be included in this application, the official acceptance of this application requires concurrence of filing by the Board.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of right-of-way in the rezoning application being filed on property located at Tax Map Reference 39-4((1)) parcel 127. He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards and does not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.
