Supervisor Gross said that 112 residents of the Oak Run community have signed petitions requesting a waiver of the County's recently adopted Policy governing County trash collection on pipestem driveways.

Supervisor Gross said that Oak Run residents have been receiving pick-up service on the pipestem driveways for the past 14 years. The Oak Run pipestems are wider than the average County pipestem, but pose significant topographical problems for residents who must push or pull loaded "toters" up steep hills to meet the requirement that trash be set out on the public right-of-way. In addition, placement of several toters and recycling containers at the corner of each pipestem, which may have four or five homes on it, creates an unsightly appearance on the main street, Colfax Avenue.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board waive the Policy eliminating garbage pick-up for pipestems in Oak Run, and restore the previous service. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland.

Following discussion, with input from Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive; Robert L. Howell, Deputy County Attorney; and Richard Gozikowski, Director, Office of Waste Management, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES), Supervisor Gross amended the motion to include a Hold Harmless Agreement signed by the residents, and this was accepted.

Supervisor Dix stated that as part of Schedule B of the Area Plan Review (APR) process, a nomination to increase the intensity for office use for property located west of Reston Parkway and north of Sunrise Valley Drive will be considered. This nomination did not include an adjacent property to the north located along the Dulles Toll Road. The owners of this adjacent property have asked to be considered for a similar increase in intensity to accommodate a major office tenant that is interested in this site provided that there is sufficient potential for future expansion.

To foster a more comprehensive planning approach for this important area along the Dulles Toll Road, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board authorize an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment for land known as the CarrAmerica site, Tax Map 17-3((8))2A.

51. “WARNING BUOYS ARE A MUST” - MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT TO BE DEVELOPED REGARDING AUTOMATIC REINSTALLATION OF BUOYS ON THE POTOMAC RIVER ABOVE THE AQUEDUCT AT GREAT FALLS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland stated that after a severe thunderstorm in the local area, he received a letter from a constituent named Ms. Elizabeth Ketz-Robinson, who alerted him to a particularly dangerous condition which occurred in the Potomac River above the Aqueduct above Great Falls after River Bend Park. The buoys which had warned paddlers and others for 10-15 years had disappeared. These are the warning buoys which have prevented people from unknowingly going over the aqueduct and then through Great Falls where several deaths are reported annually.

The missing warning buoys came to Ms. Ketz-Robinson’s attention when her young relatives went paddling on the Potomac expecting to see the buoys as their indicator to take out. They almost went over the aqueduct, but closely averted this because of their boating experience and paddling skills.

Since this near-tragic occurrence, Ms. Ketz-Robinson has contacted Senator Charles Robb’s (D-VA) office and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and received immediate assistance with replacement of the warning buoys. Nevertheless, she would like to ensure that the Potomac River above Great Falls always has warning buoys and if the buoys are swept away in a storm, that a mechanism is in place to restore the warning buoys immediately. This will assure accountability and closure will be provided for the public.

Since the area in question is in and adjacent to the Dranesville District, Supervisor Hyland moved jointly with Supervisor Mendelsohn that the Board direct staff to contact Senator Robb’s office, the Maryland Department of Resources, the Army Corps of Engineers, and any other necessary entities so that a Memorandum of Agreement is developed stating the procedures for reinstallation of the warning buoys when they wash out, including actions to be taken in such an event and the parties responsible. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Mendelsohn.

Following a brief discussion, the question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

52. EXTENSION OF MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING (MOU) FOR SOUTHEAST FAIRFAX DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland stated that on June 30, 1998, the Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) between Southeast Fairfax Development Corporation (SFDC) and Fairfax County expired. He noted that although normally this biennial document would have been given a cursory review and presented to the Board for approval, this year staff suggested waiting until the County Executive’s Revitalization Initiatives were approved in order that the recommendations pertaining to SFDC could be incorporated into the MOU.

Supervisor Hyland stated that the Executive Director and Board of SFDC have concerns about operating without an MOU and have asked that he and Supervisor Kauffman extend the current MOU for a period of 12 months or less to allow adequate time for changes to be made to the document.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor Kauffman jointly moved that the MOU between SFDC and Fairfax County be extended for up to 12 months until modifications may be made to include specific recommendations in the Revitalization Initiatives at which time the MOU may be restored to its traditional two-year term. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board join in Chairman Hanley’s referral to staff of the issue of the payment for a special audit of Good Shepherd Housing required by the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) and to direct staff to circulate the response to the Board. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

55. CONSIDERATION ITEM REQUESTED FOR THE WILLS OF GEORGE AND MARTHA WASHINGTON (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that on his motion it had requested that the Clerk of the Court and the Chief Judge consider loaning George Washington’s will to Mount Vernon where, under specified conditions, it could be appropriately displayed for the public during the bicentennial celebration which is scheduled to begin next year.

Supervisor Hyland stated that he received a letter from John T. Frey, Clerk of the Court, indicating that the representative from the Library of Congress had examined the will and determined that there was a significant need for additional conservation and preservation treatment for the document. He distributed details outlining the problem and recommended solution.

Supervisor Hyland said that according to Mr. John Frey, the conservation treatment should be performed before the will is loaned to Mount Vernon for their Bicentennial display. Although he does not have precise figures on the cost of the treatment, Mr. Frey is estimating $53,000 and has requested that the Department of Management and Budget (DMB) carry over this amount to his Fiscal Year (FY) 1999 Budget. To avoid having any delays encountered in having the wills of George and Martha Washington displayed at Mount Vernon, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to add $53,000 for the restoration as a Consideration Item at Carryover. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Mendelsohn.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

56. “LET ?EM LIVE” - BOARD POSITION ON CANADA GEESE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland reported that last week the Humane Society lost its court fight when a Federal judge informed United States (US) Wildlife officials to proceed with plans to kill more than 100 Canada geese at both Northern Virginia airports. The geese are to be captured by members of the US Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Service and slaughtered by the end of this week since molting season ends at that time. The geese, at 15 pounds apiece, pose a danger to aircraft as they land and take off. Despite the valiant efforts of the Human Society to halt the slaughter of 1,300 geese, the judge’s ruling exempted the geese from the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and environmental laws. The geese will first be rounded up for slaughter.

Supervisor Hyland stated that he concurred with the Society’s attorney, Mr. Lovvorn, and expressed his belief that the birds could be relocated to other areas of the State. He noted that farmers have offered to take the birds to prevent their slaughter and he expressed a willingness to personally help in this effort. He also asserted that more needs to be done to further the use of non-lethal, preventive measures to discourage the birds from nesting at airports.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that Board direct the Chairman to communicate with federal and State authorities involved with the decision about the geese requesting that they not be killed, and that every effort be made to relocate the geese in Fairfax County or elsewhere. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey.

Following discussion regarding the timing of the slaughter, Supervisor Hyland amended his motion to reassert the Board’s position opposing the slaughter of the geese and favoring the alternative procedure of relocation of the geese, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

57. POLLING PLACE CHANGE FOR THE CHENEY ELECTION PRECINCT (Tape 5)

The old school now has been replaced by a new building which is located adjacent to the site where the old building stood. The new facility is named the Fort Belvoir Elementary School.

Supervisor Hyland noted that Virginia law provides that the local governing body shall establish by ordinance a polling place in each election precinct, and the replacement of the old Cheney School indicate that the old name and polling place of the Cheney Precinct need to be changed. Therefore, he moved that the Board:

This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, and Chairman Hanley voting “AYE,” Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable conditions, regulations, or adopted standards and does not prejudice the consideration of this application in any way. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix and carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

The Peterson Companies and other owners have completed the reconsolidation and have filed Proffered Condition Amendments to update the design and other elements of the plan.

To enable the elements of the residential portions of the property to proceed, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES) to process concurrently with Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 97-S-039-2 and Final Development Plan Amendment Application FDPA 87-S-039-6 all Plans associated with the residential portions and the Environmental Quality Corridor (EQC) portions of the Fairfax Corner project.

63. GRAFFITI BY JUVENILES (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that graffiti continues to be a problem in the County, as it is in other parts of Virginia. He noted that the Virginia General Assembly passed legislation giving judges in localities the ability to impose remedies not usually available for punishment of persons who deface property, when the convicted person is less than 18 years of age. An example of this broad discretion in sentencing convicted juveniles is the judge’s right to suspend the juvenile’s motor vehicle license or impose a curfew on the juvenile as to the hours during which the juvenile may operate a motor vehicle, Virginia Code Ann. 16.1- 278.8 (Michie 1996). He expressed his appreciation to Michael H. Long, Assistant County Attorney, for the documents on this issue which were circulated to the Board.

Supervisor Kauffman reported that the police in his district report that most graffiti vandalism is committed by juveniles and that much of it is gang related. Graffiti has a negative visual impact on communities and encourages gang behavior and “copy cat” crimes. Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:
