To effectively address this issue, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the following information:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

In its response, Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that staff also indicated that there is an issue of effective coordination between the schools and the County when new schools are designed or new programs are offered at existing locations. It seems imprudent for the schools to institute new programs or open new schools without coordinating with the police on the issue of crossing guards and then to demand the guards on the basis of safety when problems arise. These extra guards cannot be budgeted for if the need is not anticipated.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Chair to communicate the following concerns with the School Board:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Kauffman reviewed the problem of vacancies and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to work with School Board staff and other appropriate officials and report its findings at the Board meeting scheduled for September 28, 1998 with a range of remedies for filling these vacancies. Without objection, it was so ordered.

71. STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN A TWO WEEK SUMMER STUDY PROGRAM AT OXFORD UNIVERSITY (Tape 11)

Supervisor Mendelsohn informed Board Members that this past July, 20 high school students from McLean, Langley and Thomas Jefferson participated in a two-week summer study program at Oxford University. This exciting educational experience was the brainchild of McLean Principal, Dr. Teressa Caldwell and was co-sponsored by Virginia Polytechnical Institute and State University (VPI&SU) and Oxford University. Students who participated in the program earned six hours of college honor credit in English and Social Studies from Virginia Tech and the program was an overwhelming success.

Dr. David Alexander, Professor and Department Chair of the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Department at VPI&SU, was instrumental in instituting and coordinating the program, as well as teaching some of the courses at Oxford. Kathleen Deering, a teacher from McLean High School and Brigitte Lavey, a teacher from Langley, assisted Dr. Alexander with the summer study classes at Oxford.

Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite Dr. Alexander, Dr. Caldwell, Ms. Deering, Dr. English, and Ms. Lavey to appear before the Board on October 12, 1998, to be recognized for their significant contributions to bringing this worthwhile travel-study program to students in Fairfax County.

73. REDUCTION IN THE SPEED LIMIT ON GEORGETOWN PIKE, ROUTE 193 (Tape 11)

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that in the next year, several new buildings will be constructed in the vicinity of the center of the village of Great Falls. In the interest of ensuring the preservation of both safety and the historical significance of Georgetown Pike, Route 193, some consideration to the posted speed limit should be given.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board instruct staff to work with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to reduce the speed limit near the commercial center of Great Falls from 35 miles per hour to 25 miles per hour. This change should help encourage drivers passing through the center of Great Falls to consider the

impact that excessive speed has on local non-motorized traffic and will help to assist people using the commercial and public services in the village. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

74. REVIEW AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF SITE PLAN AND VARIANCE APPLICATION REGARDING THE TOYS R US STORE ON COMMERCE STREET (Tape 12)

Supervisor Kauffman said that there is a Toys R Us store on Commerce Street just north of Franconia Road. As part of the Mixing Bowl project, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will need more than an acre of the property.

In addition to reconfiguring the building, Toys R Us will construct new parking spaces to replace those it will lose and will landscape at key points along the perimeter of the property. The Toys R Us must obtain a variance from the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) since construction will occur within 75 feet of the right-of-way of the new ramp (being built as part of the Mixing Bowl project) from Franconia Road to Interstate 95.

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to review the Site Plan to be submitted regarding changes to be made to the Toys R Us property identified as Tax Map Number 80-4((1))21C and 22C concurrently with the processing of a Variance Application for the reconfiguration of the building. This motion was seconded jointly by Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Mendelsohn and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

75. REFORMS FOR SECTION EIGHT HOUSING (Tape 12)

Supervisor Kauffman said that he recently learned that the Department of Housing and Community Development's (HCD) reforms for Section Eight housing were showcased at a national Section Eight Housing Conference held in Nashville. He said that HCD's presentation included many of the various techniques used to combat fraud and abuse in the program. Fraud, abuse and concentration of certificates are chief concerns of many residents in the southeast portion of this County.

Supervisor Kauffman commended staff for their work on this issue.

76. CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA C-448-18 AND FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN APPLICATION FDP C-448-34 (Tape 12)

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

This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on this application by the Board and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provision of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards in any way. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to refer the issue of expansion of the History Commission to staff for review, and this was accepted.

When staff reports with the requested information Supervisor Kauffman stated his intent to appoint Ms. Sue Patterson as a Citizen Representative to the History Commission.

The need for both of these applications has been superseded by subsequent events.

Therefore, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board withdraw both Proffered Condition Amendment Applications PCA 88-C-130 and PCA 88-C-131. This motion was seconded jointly by Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Kauffman and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

The Yeonas organization also gave Vienna Little League all of the land on which Yeonas Little League Park is now located.

Supervisor Dix said that their efforts continue as the Yeonas organization is building a "show home" in McLean. During October, this home will be available to the Ronald McDonald House for admission fee public showing, after which it will be sold with part of the proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House.

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

VDOT noted that as part of such a reconstruction project it would be necessary to acquire additional right-of- way for the purpose of trying to maintain traffic flow in the I-66 corridor.

There is no current discussion relative to any increased capacity on I-66 inside the Beltway, and there is already an existing bottleneck situation at the Beltway.

Supervisor Dix further moved that the Board authorize the Chairman to correspond with the Secretary of Transportation and the Commissioner of VDOT regarding these matters and respectfully request further information on this subject. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to request VDOT to coordinate the I-66 project and repairs with the proposed acquisition of right-of-way, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Dix asked to amend the motion to direct staff to forward correspondence and any additional information to the Town of Vienna, and this was accepted.

91. BAILEYS CROSSROADS VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT (Tape 12)

Supervisor Gross said that in 1991 the Board conveyed property located at Tax Map Number 61-4((1))20A to the Baileys Crossroads Volunteer Fire Department, Incorporated, property on which the Volunteers had operated a fire station for many years. The deed by which the property was conveyed included an automatic reverter provision which provides that title to the property will revert to the County in the event that any part of the property is leased to any person or entity other than a volunteer fire department.

Supervisor Gross noted that in 1995, the Board agreed that a lease of a portion of the property for the purpose of operating a monopole would not cause title to revert to the Board. Subsequently, a monopole application was approved.

Supervisor Gross said that another telecommunications carrier now wishes to co-locate a facility on this monopole. The application has already been approved as a Feature Shown by the Planning Commission. Once again, the Volunteers do not wish to violate the reverter provision in the deed.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to initiate the public hearing process regarding the proposal that the Board forego claiming that its reversionary interest would be triggered if space is leased by the Baileys Crossroads Volunteer Fire Department for an additional telecommunications facility on the existing monopole. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova.

Following discussion, with input from Catherine A.

Supervisor Frey said that the applicant, S&S Development, LLC, would like to construct a Rite-Aid Pharmacy with a drive-through window at the northwest intersection of Lee Highway and Pickwick Road located in Centreville.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to concurrently review the plans associated with Special Exception SE 98-Y-025 and Rezoning Application RZ 98-SU-024. He noted that approval by the Board of this request will not relieve S&S Development, LLC from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of the land use applications in any way. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Supervisor Connolly stated that because the Board owns the internal public street, Old Springhouse Road, as a result of a 1963 public street dedication, the owner of the industrial park needs the Board's consent to include it in the applications to be filed for Proffered Condition Amendment (PCA) and Rezoning Applications.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board:

Supervisor Connolly stipulated that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards, and it does not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. This

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

104. AUTHORIZATION FOR A SPECIAL STUDY AND ESTABLISHMENT OF A CITIZENS TASK FORCE FOR THE MERRIFIELD SUBURBAN CENTER (Tape 14)

(BACs)

(APPTS)

Supervisor Connolly stated that at his request a visioning workshop for the Merrifield Suburban Center was held on June 10, 1998 at Luther Jackson Intermediate School. Participants of the workshop included representatives from the Greater Merrifield Business Association, property owners located within Merrifield and citizens from nearby neighborhoods, as well as staff from the Department of Planning and Zoning, (DPZ) Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), Department of Transportation, and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards, and it does not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way.

Currently the Association's Special Use Application includes plans to conduct horseback riding lessons with intentions to construct an indoor riding facility in the future. She noted that this non-profit organization provides recreational opportunities for children with disabilities and this fee waiver, if approved, will allow this organization to focus its resources exclusively on its operational costs.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board waive the application fees associated with the Special Use Application regarding 10804 Henderson Road submitted by the Northern Virginia Therapeutic Riding Association. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

114. PROPERTY TAX ON WATERCRAFT (Tape 14)

Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that in May of this year, he had called to the Board's attention to the issue of taxation on boats and the action of Prince William County which effectively eliminated the taxation on boats. He noted that because of the timing it was not appropriate to raise this issue before the Board during the normal budget process.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that this matter of lowering the tax rate on boats be referred to staff so that the County Executive may consider inclusion of this request in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2000 Budget thereby effectively eliminating property tax on boats by reducing the tax rate to one cent per one hundred dollars of valuation. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

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

116. GEORGE WASHINGTON ON THE MOVE (Tape 14)

Supervisor Hyland noted that the year 1999 marks the George Washington Bicentennial. In celebration of the anniversary, the Mount Vernon Ladies Association has worked with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to create a George Washington Commemorative license plate. The new license plate will be available for $10, and can be renewed annually for $10 more. Personalized versions are available.

Supervisor Hyland noted that the DMV requires a minimum order of 400 license plates before it will allow the plates to be made. Therefore, the Mount Vernon Ladies Association has asked one of its volunteers to gather the applications and process an order as soon as 400 have been received. Interested persons should call 703-799-8659 or send a completed application and payment, to:

Mr. Jack Evans

George Washington's Mount Vernon

P.O. Box 110

Mount Vernon, VA 22121

117. REAPPROPRIATION OF COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT (CDBG) FUNDS FOR THE INSTALLATION OF FENCES ADJACENT TO THE HUNTINGTON COMMUNITY CENTER (Tape 14)

Supervisor Hyland stated that in the 1992/93 time frame, the Board approved the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for a sidewalk extension project in the Huntington Community. Upon completion of the project design in 1994, land acquisition was initiated. It became apparent at the outset of the land acquisition process that the issues identified could not be resolved in a cost-effective manner. As a result, community leaders asked if funds could be utilized for something other than the original project.

Supervisor Hyland reported that about a year ago, a need in the community was identified and recently the Huntington Community Association voted to replace the wood privacy fences which border the neighborhood's community center. He noted that funds are available and would be sufficient for this improvement and the Association members have approved the change.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that CDBG Funds in the amount of $111,683, currently designated for the Huntington Sidewalk Extension Project, be reappropriated for the purpose of replacing the wood privacy fences which border the Huntington Community Center. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley.

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

118. POHICK CHURCH'S 53RD ANNUAL COUNTRY FAIR (Tape 14)

Supervisor Hyland announced that on October 3, 1998 Pohick Episcopal Church, Truro Parish, will hold its 53rd Annual Pohick Country Fair. As noted in his written Board Matter, Pohick Church was constructed by George Washington and George Mason. The Country Fair is the Church's largest fundraiser, with all proceeds used for charitable purposes and given to non-profit organizations in the County, such as Lorton Community Action Center which provides outreach programs for those in need.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board:

The second to this motion was inaudible.

Following a query to David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on this motion which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

119. GUNSTON ROAD TRAIL (Tape 14)

Supervisor Hyland stated that there are efforts to connect the George Washington Memorial Parkway Trail through Fort Belvoir to the Gunston Road Trail to the end of Mason Neck. He said that during the 1998 General Assembly, Delegate David Albo succeeded in securing $17,800 from the State for the Gunston Road Trail for each year, 1998 and 1999.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this item to the County Executive as a Consideration item in the next quarterly budget review for inclusion of matching funds for this trail.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Dix and asked to amend the request to refer this item to the Countywide Non-Motorized Transportation (Trails) Committee for its consideration of reappropriation of funds, and this was accepted. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Acting-Chairman Dix returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

120. FAIRFAX CONNECTOR BUS SERVICE (Tape 14)

With reference to a Fairfax Connector handout to Board Members earlier in the day, Chairman Hanley announced that the labor negotiations are in progress between ATE Ryder, the operators of the Connector, and the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Local 3398. She stated that the labor issues are between the union and the contractor, ATE Ryder. She noted that it is anticipated that the Fairfax Connector bus drivers may take a job action on Tuesday morning which would affect all Connector riders in the Springfield, Franconia, and Mount Vernon area. Reston and Herndon riders would not be affected. Riders can tune in to Channel 16 in the morning, call 703-324-INFO, access the County's website at www.co.fairfax.va.us to determine the status of their routes.
