Chairman Hanley stated that the opening of the new Tyson’s-West*Park Station is an exciting step forward in improving transportation options for commuters in the Dulles Corridor.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by unanimous vote.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

39. RECOGNITION FOR GEORGE C. NEWSTROM, CHAIRMAN OF THE 1998 WORLD CONGRESS ON INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY, MEMBERS OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF THE WORLD CONGRESS AND THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY (EDA) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that the 1998 World Congress on Information Technology, held last week at George Mason University (GMU) and hosted by Fairfax County, was highly successful and should be a source of great pride for Fairfax County.

Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite George C. Newstrom, Chairman of the 1998 World Congress on Information Technology, and members of the Executive Committee of the World Congress and the Economic Development Authority (EDA) to appear before the Board sometime this summer to be recognized for the exemplary job of showcasing Fairfax County at the 1998 World Congress on Information Technology.

40. REPRINTING OF THE PAMPHLET “GEORGE MASON AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS” (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that he and Supervisor McConnell shared a Board Matter regarding the reprinting of the pamphlet “George Mason and the Bill of Rights,” and moved that the Board direct staff to report, as a Consideration Item, with information regarding the cost of reprinting the pamphlets.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board revisited the issue of historical publications. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#68.)

41. SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION FOR EXTENDED STAY AMERICA (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn informed the Board that Extended Stay America has filed an application for a Special Exception to operate an Extended Stay Inn at 6833 Old Dominion Drive in McLean. This project, if approved, will be a major contribution to the revitalization of McLean and the community has expressed its interest in speeding along the review process.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board:

These motions do not in any way relieve the applicant from compliance with any and all ordinances, regulations or adopted standards and does not constitute support by this Board for approval of the Special Exception. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by unanimous vote.

42. RECOGNITION OF CHAPLAIN GLEN DALE, A FORMER VOLUNTEER AT THE FAIRFAX COUNTY ADULT DETENTION CENTER (ADC) AND HIS WIFE, PAT (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn informed Board Members that Chaplain Glen Dale became a volunteer at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center (ADC) in 1988. As a volunteer, he has taught a weekly discipleship class and led a monthly worship service. In 1993, Chaplain Dale was hired as a paid “Good News Chaplain” and in 1996 was appointed Senior Chaplain. During his volunteer years at the ADC, Chaplain Dale attended the Trinity Theological Seminary and was ordained. Since then, he has been responsible for raising financial support for the Chaplaincy. In his current capacity, Chaplain Dale oversees all the volunteers and the programs associated with the ministry.

Chaplain Dale’s wife Pat is also actively involved in the women’s ministry at the ADC. She spends countless hours counseling, teaching, listening, comforting and mending clothes. Until recently, when the jail took over the responsibility of providing necessary toiletries, and undergarments, Pat ensured that those items were available to those who had no funds.

After more than 20 years in Fairfax County, Chaplain Dale is now going to the Palm Beach County Jail to establish a “Good News Jail” and prison ministry chaplaincy.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite both Chaplain Glen Dale and his wife Pat to appear before the Board on July 13, 1998, to receive recognition for their outstanding humanitarian efforts within the Fairfax County ADC. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by unanimous vote.

43. CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR PULTE HOME CORPORATION (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) to accept for simultaneous and concurrent processing a preliminary plan and a record plat and any other drawings as may be necessary for subdivision review. This motion does not in any way relieve the applicant from compliance with any and all applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards and does not constitute support by this Board for the approval of the subdivision plans. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by unanimous vote.

44. LORTON BUS STOP LOCATION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that during the week of June 15, 1998, the Virginia Department of Transportation, (VDOT) notified each driver of every car parked in the Lorton VDOT commuter parking lot that the lot will be closed as of Tuesday, July 28, 1998. The closing is necessitated by the Lorton Road Rail Bridge and the widening of Lorton Road. It is expected to take approximately three years to complete the work.

Supervisor Hyland noted that constituents appreciated the notification. He said that the bus transports passengers to the Pentagon during the morning rush and returns the passengers during the evening rush hour. The need for a new bus stop at the Lorton Virginia Railway Express (VRE) station has not been addressed. He added that he has received numerous telephone calls stating that this move is very disruptive to the commuter routine. However, if commuters are going to park at the Lorton VRE station they also want bus service at this location. This simple installation will give each rider at least two options of commuting to their work place.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to review and determine the feasibility of installing a bus stop at the Lorton VRE station and to install a bus stop there not later than July 27, 1998. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

45. CHILDREN’S RUNNING - A HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE FOR LIFE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that he recently received a letter from Henley Gabeau, Executive Director of the Road Runners Club of America (“RRCA”), expressing her support of his proposed “Employee Non-Smoking” Policy along with her belief that the best method is prevention which includes not only educating school-age children about the diseases caused by smoking, but also by providing them with fun alternatives that encourage healthful lifestyles.

Supervisor Hyland said that the RRCA has developed an excellent tool they are willing to offer to all fourth and fifth grade teachers in Fairfax County entitled Children’s Running: A Guide for Teachers and Coaches which is a 64-page curriculum to help teachers make kids run and learn at the same time.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that:

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

46. VICTORY OVER VIOLENCE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that Victory Over Violence (VoV), a not-for-profit organization whose goal is preserving the joy of childhood, proposes a pro-active, as opposed to a re- active, response to violence by recommitting to daily involvement in childrens’ lives. To that end, VoV will host its first annual “Family Day” at Bull Run Regional Park on Saturday, August 15, 1998 from 12 noon until 5:00 p.m. This will be a day of music, entertainment and guest speakers to draw attention to, and focus on, the issue of violence and anger, particularly as it pertains to youth.

Supervisor Hyland stated that all Fairfax County agencies are welcome to set up information booths and/or hand out flyers at the event. Further information may be obtained by calling 780-8823.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs and the Department of Consumer Affairs, and Media General Cable to help in every way they can to advertise this worthy program, and to assist in getting sponsors from the greater Fairfax County community. This motion was seconded Supervisor McConnell and carried by a vote nine, Chairman Hanley being out of the room.

47. FRIENDS OF THE POTOMAC RIVER (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that in his State of the Union Address on February 4, 1997, President Clinton announced an Initiative supporting community efforts to restore and protect America’s rivers, spur economic revitalization, and preserve historic and cultural heritage. Under the sponsorship of Senator Sarbanes, a steering committee was formed to establish the “Friends of the Potomac” and to nominate the Potomac River.

Supervisor Hyland stated that this month the President’s Advisory Committee met and presented their preferred list to President Clinton for his consideration. The Potomac River tied for first place with the Williamette in Oregon. Thus, it appears the Potomac River will be one of the 10 rivers to receive the “American Rivers Initiative” designation. There is a guaranteed federal commitment to employ a “River Navigator” for each of the 10 rivers selected who will work side by side with an organization established to meet the President’s vision and mission. Under no circumstances will this Initiative add regulation or create new law. It will, however, bridge the gap among many organizations, individuals, agricultural communities, development communities, business communities, cultural and recreational communities to work together. The Potomac River Basin is 5,723 square miles and is located in Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia (DC). Thus, any coordinated “attack” becomes a formidable task and will undoubtedly require strong support from all communities and local governments located within the basin.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to invite a member of Senator Sarbanes’ steering committee to give a presentation at the Board’s Environmental Ccommittee meeting on July 27, 1998 and to receive recommendations as to what Fairfax County can do to encourage this designation. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by unanimous vote.

48. DEFECTIVE LIGHT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross announced that the light above her in the Board Auditorium was defective and she asked unanimous consent that it be repaired during the lunch break. Without objection, it was so ordered.

49. EXPEDITIOUS SCHEDULING OF THE PUBLIC HEARINGS FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 97-M-014 (EXXON CORPORATION) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that Exxon Corporation has filed Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 97-M-014 for property located at 6162 Arlington Boulevard. The application requests a minor change to the Special Exception Application which was granted

in July of 1997. The other construction authorized by the original application is underway, and the applicant has requested the amendment process be expedited.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to schedule the public hearings for this application as expeditiously as possible. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

50. INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 98-M-002 (WASHINGTON INTERNATIONAL TELEPORT, INCORPORATED) (MASON DISTRICT) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross announced her intent, later in the meeting, at the appropriate time, to defer the public hearing on Special Exception Application SE 98-M-002.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the public hearing was officially deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#109.)

51. AMENDMENT TO TRAILS PLAN FOR ROBERTS ROAD (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova noted that on June 8, 1998 the Board concurred with her request to direct the Planning Commission to hear an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment for the Roberts Road Corridor in conjunction with the Braddock nominations to be considered under Schedule B of the Area Plans Review (APR).

Supervisor Bulova said that at the time she neglected to mention that the Trails Plan will also need to be amended to reflect the need for a trail along Roberts Road, north of Braddock Road, near George Mason University (GMU).

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct the Planning Commission to also consider an amendment to the Countywide Trails Plan in conjunction with the Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment under Schedule B September hearing schedule. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

52. REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR KATHY WEAVER, SAINT AMBROSE'S PARISH COORDINATOR AND CHAIR, FOR IMMEDIATE SYMPATHETIC HELP (F.I.S.H.) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova announced that after many years of hard work and faithful dedication Ms. Kathy Weaver will be leaving Northern Virginia. Ms. Weaver has served as Saint Ambrose's Parish Coordinator and Chair of For Immediate Sympathetic Help (F.I.S.H.), an ecumenical organization established to provide food, transportation, clothing, and other forms of assistance to neighbors in need.

Supervisor Bulova reviewed Ms. Weavers' accomplishments and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Weaver to appear before the Board to be thanked and recognized for her remarkable and outstanding contribution to Fairfax County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

53. BRADDOCK ROAD YOUTH CLUB (BRYC) GIRLS'S SOFTBALL/PARKING PROBLEM AT CANTERBURY WOODS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova noted that the Board has taken a number of actions to provide more equity and opportunity for girl's softball. One measure has been the development of additional playing fields.

Supervisor Bulova said that Canterbury Woods Elementary School is one of the locations where two additional fields have been provided for the Braddock Road Youth Club (BRYC) Girls Softball teams. A number of people are using a residential cul-de-sac in the Canterbury Woods neighborhood instead which is causing a number of problems.

Supervisor Bulova pointed out that because the location is near an elementary school and not a high school, and because their problem is with weekend and after school hours sports, they are ineligible to be designated a Residential Permit Parking District (RPPD). She said that construction of a fence on Canterbury Woods Elementary School property, along the area of Nero Court would solve the problem.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board:

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

54. CARRYOVER ITEMS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova announced that Carryover is scheduled for public hearing in September. She reminded staff that funding for the following items had been deferred:

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the above-referenced items be brought before the Board for consideration at Carryover. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following discussion, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to present for funding the Washington Area Housing Partnership as a Consideration Item at Carryover. Without objection, it was so ordered.

55. REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR MS. COURTNEY GASKINS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix said that it has come to his attention that Courtney Gaskins of the Virginia Cooperative Extension will be leaving the area in mid-July to accept a position with the USDA/Army School-Age and Teen Project in Honolulu, Hawaii. Ms. Gaskins has done an outstanding job in working with youth at risk through the 4-H Communities Collaborating for Youth Project and the Fairfax County Extension Office.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Gaskins to appear before the Board on July 13, 1998 to be recognized for her many years of service and dedicated commitment to the needs of young people in community. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

56. RAMPS FOR PROSPERITY AVENUE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix referred to a memorandum that he had received from the Charles Robinson, Mayor of the Town of Vienna, regarding ramps to carry traffic onto Prosperity Avenue in Merrifield. Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to staff and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) for further review and response to Mayor Robinson's memorandum and to keep the Board advised as to whether there is feasibility in proceeding. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to staff and VDOT for cost analysis. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

57. ARI LETTER (Tape 5)

61. INTERNATIONAL PLUMBING CODE (IPC) REQUIREMENTS REGARDING BATHROOMS IN RETAIL ESTABLISHMENTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that it had come to his attention that the 1993 and 1995 Building Officials and Code Administrators (BOCA) Codes had an exception that allowed retail establishments to build only one restroom facility for employees (as opposed to two, one for employees and one for customers) only when they had a customer occupancy load of 150 or they were less than 4500 square feet of spaces. As a result, only one toilet has been installed in most mercantile stores under 4500 square feet.

Supervisor Kauffman said that the new 1996 International Plumbing Code (IPC) has a commentary section which appears to require two bathrooms in virtually all stores. This new code has significant cost impact to smaller tenants, many of whom are “mom and pop” operations. Once space is taken out for a second bathroom and access corridor, at least 100 square feet of floor area normally used to display products for sale will be lost. This hurts potential for sales and causes a second look at the feasibility by both merchants and landlords at leasing vacant space before a lease is signed.
