Chairman Hanley noted that on October 8, 1998, the Fairfax County Council of Parents and Teachers Associations will mark a National Day of Concern About Young People and Gun Violence by asking students to participate in the Student Pledge Against Gun Violence.

30. DECLINE IN AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to a recent article in the Washington Post addressing the decline in affordable housing due to owners choosing not to renew federally financed contracts. Many below market rental units have been available in Fairfax County from the private sector in exchange for federally funded low interest mortgages to builders. The loss of these units comes at a time when a recent Housing and Community Development (HCD) News in Brief notes that the housing assistance waiting list totals 6,376. While the issue directly is seen as a housing issue, the Board must also be concerned with a possible ripple effect on other programs.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to provide:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion which carried by unanimous vote.

31. CONCERNS ABOUT HATE CRIMES IN FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 6)

With reference to a letter from Victor Dunbar, Chairman of the Human Rights Commission, regarding the "existence and possible upswing of hate crimes in Fairfax County," Chairman Hanley moved that the Board join the Commission in stating and reiterating that hate crimes will not be tolerated in the County and supporting the efforts of the Commission to eradicate these hate crimes. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman and carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Attorney to prepare a brief report for the next meeting of the Legislative Committee regarding the existence and/or formation of a hate crime statute for the Legislative Package. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide documentation on the Commission's referenced "upswing" in hate crimes in the County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

32. SEVENTH ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE, BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES...WEATHERING THE STORM (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley announced that the Seventh Economic Development Conference, Business Opportunities...Weathering the Storm, will be held November 11-12, 1998, at the Government Center in the Conference Center. The Small and Minority Business Enterprise Program Advisory Commission has extended an invitation to Members of the Board and County staff.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board express its support for the Seventh Economic Development Conference and urge staff to support and publicize the conference. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by unanimous vote.

33. AWARD APPLICATION SPONSORED BY THE JOINT CENTER FOR SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CONFERENCE OF MAYORS AND THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF COUNTIES (NACo) (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board refer the award application sponsored by the Joint Center for Sustainable Communities in partnership with the

Without objection, it was so ordered.

36. REPORT FROM FINANCIAL AND PROGRAMS AUDITOR (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to the report from the Financial and Programs Auditor which was distributed to Board Members last Friday.

Following discussion, during which several Members requested additional time to study the Auditor's three recommendations, Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board defer action on this report until later in the meeting. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, action was taken on the Report from the Financial and Programs Auditor. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#83.)

37. TRANSPORTATION CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that Fairfax County will soon witness the start of several huge transportation construction projects and unless the needed projects are carefully managed and monitored, the adverse impacts to the citizens and businesses could be disastrous. Among the projects scheduled over the next 10 years are the Mixing Bowl; a new Woodrow Wilson Bridge; repairing I-66; and needed expansion of the Vienna Metrorail Station.

Currently, each of these projects is or will soon be reviewed by separate “congestion management” or similar studies. On a project-by-project basis, detailed review is being undertaken to ensure that people can continue to move through and within the area by a combination of: carefully phased construction; expedited work on parallel roadways used to bypass construction; and support of various alternatives to traveling alone. Unfortunately, there is no formal linkage between these projects which might be impacted by smaller maintenance, construction or utility projects.

To guard against these problems, Supervisor Kauffman said that it is essential that a "real time" matrix be maintained and constantly monitored for all such projects. Such a program must be coordinated with Federal and State transportation agencies. At the State level, there is a fundamental need for a restructuring which allows for a long-needed link between the Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT) construction management and day-to-day operations management. Supervisor Kauffman added that at present there is no "referee" to decide what work must be advanced or delayed to minimize impacts on the public.

Accordingly, on behalf of Supervisor McConnell and himself, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct the County Executive to provide a recommended plan for the development of a dynamic monitoring program for these projects before the end of November 1998. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

38. CONCURRENT AND SIMULTANEOUS PROCESSING OF SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 96-L-039 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that Tymark Enterprises (Burger King), the applicant in Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 96-L-039, will be converting the approved but not yet built Taco Bell Restaurant at 7802 Richmond Highway to a Burger King Restaurant. The surrounding communities have already endorsed the plan.

To maintain the applicant's obligations and gain the revitalization benefits associated with the opening of this restaurant, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct the Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) to authorize concurrent and simultaneous processing of this application. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on the application by the Board, nor does it relieve the applicant of compliance with the provision of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

39. CONCURRENT AND EXPEDITED PROCESSING OF SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 91-L-053-3 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that Greyhound Bus Lines has filed Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 91-L-053-3 to operate a bus terminal in Springfield while they are going through the process of relocating their services to the Joe Alexander Transportation Center. They have been working with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) to build a facility at the Transportation Center, offering yet another mode of transportation to travelers. With Greyhound in place, the Center will service Metrorail, Metrobus, Virginia Railway Express (VRE), Fairfax Connector, and Greyhound Bus Lines.

At staff's recommendation, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to:

This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation the Special Exception Amendment Application by the Board and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards.

40. OPERATION OF THE COMMUNITY CENTER AND SWIMMING POOL OF THE SACRAMENTO COMMUNITY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that the Sacramento community, located in the southern portion of Richmond Highway, has and continues to experience significant economic difficulties in operating its community center and swimming pool. This summer, the community had to close the pool and hundreds of area youth found themselves without a long-standing alternative to life on the streets.

Supervisor Kauffman noted that the current facility was built to support nine development phases, but because the original developer went bankrupt, only three of the villages were built, creating a problem with generating the number of memberships to sustain the center. The Park Authority and the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) both agree that there is a severe deficiency in recreation amenities for the population of the Sacramento Community.

As a result of in-depth discussions with staff, it was decided that the best way to proceed was to have the Board authorize staff to begin exploring the possibility of converting the center into a County Community Center. The County has previously built numerous community centers and plans three additional ones serving residents of 10 communities and seven Magisterial Districts throughout the County. The current privately-owned center is located in an area with significant high-density, affordable housing that could greatly benefit from such a conversion.

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize HCD and the Department of Systems Management for Human Services to:

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

41. SECTION EIGHT HOUSING PROGRAM (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman referred to his Board Matter from the September 14, 1998 Board Meeting which dealt with improvements the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has been able to move forward in the area of Section Eight housing and enforcement and compliance.

Supervisor Kauffman stated that last week HCD received notification from the United States (US) Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that their request to require landlords participating in the program to meet a stricter code for maintaining rental properties was approved. HCD inspectors will now be using the maintenance section of the Building Officials and Code Administrators (BOCA) National Building Code, more stringent than HUD Standards, in ensuring properties are being maintained, not just to minimum standards but to higher community standards.

Supervisor Kauffman applauded the efforts to bring real, substantive reform to the County's housing policies and noted that the new more stringent housing standards will be a welcome change for neighborhoods who have had to grapple with property owners who rent to Section Eight tenants and do not care to keep their properties in order. In addition, this will be a welcome change to tenants who often have difficulty getting owners to invest in their rental properties.

42. WAIVER OF FEES FOR SPRINGFIELD COMMUNITY CLEAN-UP DAY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to waive the disposal fees for the trash collected on Springfield Community Clean-Up Day being organized by the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce for Saturday, October 10, 1998. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by unanimous vote.

43. ANNUAL LEE DISTRICT TOWN MEETING (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman announced that the Annual Lee District Town Meeting will be held on Saturday, October 3, 1998, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Hayfield Secondary School. He invited all Board Members and residents of Lee District to attend.

44. SMART MOVER EXPRESS (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to a sticker on her jacket highlighting "I am a Smart Mover - the Montgomery/Tyson's Beltway Express," a service which began this morning and provides direct service between Bethesda and Tyson's. She added that this is the first phase of what will be a much-improved circulator bus service in Tyson's Corner and ridership is free through December of this year.

Supervisor Connolly stated that more information may be obtained about the Smart Mover service by contacting the Web Site www.wmata.com or calling Area Code 202-962-2575.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide a periodic update of the ridership as this service progresses. Without objection, it was so ordered.

45. FALLS CHURCH-MCLEAN CHILDREN'S CENTER (Tape 7)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the Falls Church-McLean Children's Center located in Falls Church is celebrating its 30th anniversary of service to the community on Saturday, October 17, 1998 from 11:00 until 2:00 p.m.

Because the Children's Center is celebrating 20 years of outstanding and truly needed service to the community, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Children's Center to the Board meeting scheduled for October 12, 1998 to receive a Certificate of Recognition. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by unanimous vote.

46. KAVALER FAMILY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that on August 7, 1998, Mr. Howard Kavaler and his wife Prabhi, both United States (US) Foreign Service Officers, were serving at the US Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya, when it was destroyed by a terrorist's car bomb. Fortunately, Mr. Kavaler survived but his wife, Prabhi, was killed as a result of the terrorist attack. Prabhi Kavaler was buried at Arlington National Cemetery on August 18, 1998.

On behalf of Mr. Kavaler and in memory of his wife Prabhi, who died serving her country and who loved the McLean community, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to pursue with the Park Authority the feasibility of naming a street or small community park in the McLean area in her honor. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman.

Chairman Hanley suggested that this issue initially be pursued with the Park Authority.

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

47. HISTORY COMMISSION (Tape 7)

(BACs)

Supervisor Connolly announced that Virginia Peters of the History Commission is resigning as of October 1, 1998. He moved that the Board honor her and thank her for her tremendous contribution to the County. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Dix and carried by unanimous vote.

48. PILOT OFF-LEASH DOG AREA (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly announced that with the help of Joanne Malone, Providence District Park Authority Representative, and Paul Baldino, Director, Park Authority, the proposed off- leash dog area, or puppy park, at Blake Lane Park is moving forward. Public hearings will be announced soon.

49. SIGNS FOR AWARENESS OF THE UPCOMING PARKS BOND REFERENDUM AND TO ENCOURAGE CITIZENS TO VOTE FOR APPROVAL OF THE BOND (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly noted that members of Park Partners, the citizens' group formed to promote awareness of the upcoming parks bond referendum and to encourage citizens to vote for approval of the bond are posting signs throughout the County to promote the bond. He added that the Zoning Ordinance requires that all signs for historic sites must be approved by the Architectural Board (ARB).

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the ARB to consider this matter at its next meeting, scheduled for October 8, 1998 in order to waive this prohibition for Park Partners, effective immediately through November 3, 1998, with the stipulation that Park Partners remove signs in a timely fashion following Election Day, and that notice of the waiver be immediately transmitted to the Park Authority for distribution to the administrators of the County's historic sites. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross and carried by unanimous vote.

50. STORMWATER MANAGEMENT STAFFING (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that as part of the Carryover process from Fiscal Year (FY) 1998 for FY 1999, $115,000 was appropriated by the Board to the Maintenance and Stormwater Management Division (MSMD) to permit the hiring of three limited-term positions for the review of stormwater management facilities during the site review process. The Board also approved the transfer of two full-time merit positions from the Department of Vehicle Services to the MSMD to assist in the inspection of privately owned stormwater management facilities.

Supervisor Connolly said that these actions were not implemented pending a presentation by staff on the reorganization of the stormwater management activities of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES). The presentation was made this morning.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize staff to utilize the $115,000 for three limited-term positions and that the two positions from the Department of Vehicle Services can be filled. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross and CARRIED by a recorded vote of eight, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Frey voting "NAY."

51. CHESAPEAKE BAY ISSUES (Tape 7)

Supervisor Dix said that there is a program to change the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act and implementation of the measures under that act from a voluntary program to a regulatory program.

Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to staff and report its findings. Without objection, it was so ordered.

52. SCHOOLS FACILITY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to communicate with Dr. Daniel A. Domenech, Division Superintendent and the School Board requesting specific information regarding a proposed administrative school facility to be located in the Reston area of the Hunter Mill District. Without objection, it was so ordered.

53. SALE OF COUNTY-OWNED PROPERTY TO WESTERRA RESTON LLC (Tape 7)

Supervisor Dix said that on February 9, 1998 the Board authorized a contract for the sale of County-owned property on Sunset Hills Road, known as parcel 11B, to Westerra Reston LLC.

Supervisor Dix said that Westerra owns certain property adjacent to Parcel B, known as Parcel 11C, and Westerra desires to submit to the Board an application for a proffered condition amendment applicable to both parcel 11B and Parcel 11C in contemplation of Westerra's combined ownership of both parcels.

Supervisor Dix noted that under the terms of the Contract, the Board agrees, solely in its proprietary capacity as the owner of Parcel B, to consent to a reasonable application for a proffered condition amendment by Westerra.

Supervisor Dix stated that Westerra, prior to executing the Contract, desires to obtain clarification from the Virginia Department of Transportation regarding Westerra's obligation under the Contract to provide VDOT with certain dedications of land from Parcel 11C.

Supervisor Dix stated that in anticipation of Westerra's entering into the Contract upon its clarification of certain issues pertaining to the dedications, the Board, solely in its proprietary capacity as the owner of Parcel 11B, should consent to Westerra's filing of an application for a consolidated proffered condition amendment on Parcel 11B and 11C.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board, solely in its proprietary capacity as the owner of Parcel 11B, agree to consent to the filing of such proffered condition amendment by Westerra; provided, however, that such consent shall in no manner whatsoever be deemed approval of the application by the Board in its regulatory or legislative capacity, nor shall such consent be deemed in any manner to hinder, limit or otherwise affect the right of the Board with regard to such application and/or the timing of consideration thereof; and provided further, that the Board in its proprietary capacity may at any time withdraw its consent to the application, upon which withdrawal Westerra and any successors and assigns shall have no claims of any nature against the Board or any of its agencies, departments or divisions, including without limitation all employees thereof; with regard to the withdrawal of the application and/or any losses or damages with respect thereto; such consent expressly contingent upon and not effective until Westerra, for itself and its successors and assigns, agrees in writing to the foregoing conditions and limitations to the consent.

(BACs)

Supervisor Dix referred to a press conference held by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the Malcolm Hill Family about a judge's determination that insufficient evidence being available in a case of driving while under the influence (DUI) resulted in the case being dismissed.

Therefore, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct the Oversight Committee on Drinking and Driving to examine this particular case to determine whether there are any legislative initiatives that could be pursued and included in the Board's Legislative Package to help prevent this kind of double tragedy. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion which carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board refer to the Legislative Committee the issue of the defense not being provided with a document seven days prior to the trial with a remedy being a continuance rather than a dismissal and re-referral of Delegate Moran's legislation regarding mandatory sentences. This motion was seconded Supervisor Connolly.

Supervisor Connolly announced that the Legislative Committee meeting has been rescheduled for Friday, October 9, 1998 at 8:00 a.m.

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

They placed second in the Olympic trials in Park City, Utah.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to invite the members of this Bobsled team to appear before the Board on October 12, 1998 to be recognized for their commitment to the spirit of the Olympics and to discuss how the Fairfax County community can lend support to their efforts. This motion was seconded by Supervisor McConnell and carried by unanimous vote.

64. CANKERWORM TREATMENT (Tape 8)

With reference to a Board Matter presented on June 8, 1998 on the subject of cankerworms, Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that current State legislation does not enable the Board to create service districts for the control of cankerworms, mosquitos, etcetera. The Board must request the General Assembly for that authority. Even though that action has not yet been initiated, the Board can redirect general funds to spray the 2000 infested acres in the spring of 1999.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board:

In coordination with the Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ), and its review of the Public Facilities (Code of Virginia 15.2-2232) Application, it was determined that the uses proposed for the property would be designated housing for the elderly and office and that no one zoning district would permit these uses as proposed for the property.

Supervisor Hyland said that a Category 3 Special Exception and a rezoning of the property to R-8 will be required to permit the housing for the elderly which will be developed by a partnership formed by the FCRHA. The Board must authorize the formation of the partnership. Office use would be permitted as a public use if it is implemented under the direct authority of the Board. Accordingly, he moved that the Board:

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman.

Following discussion, with input from Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive, and David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, Supervisor Hyland asked to amend his motion to delete the last bullet, and this was accepted.

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

66. INTERPARCEL ACCESS REQUEST FROM THE DEVELOPER OF EVENING HILLS (Tape 8)

Supervisor McConnell reported that she had been contacted by the developers of Evening Hills who is seeking the Board’s permission for interparcel access from their property, Tax Map 74-2-((11)) Parcel 19, to Balmoral Green Avenue through Board of Supervisors property.

In 1996 Supervisor McConnell was contacted by the developer of Evening Hills who was interested in obtaining interparcel access from the Evening Hills development through a property which was in the process of being dedicated to the Board as part of Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 92-W-007. To prevent the delay of the Balmoral project, Supervisor McConnell said that she agreed to consider the requests after the property was dedicated to the Board.

Supervisor McConnell stated that since that time, the Board now owns the property known as parcel N, recorded on December 4, 1997 in Deed Book 10195, page 1262, and the developers have again requested interparcel access from their site to Balmoral Green Avenue. She noted that staff recognized the problems posed by this parcel’s originally proposed access directly to Compton Road. Apparently, Evening Hills' access northward to Compton Road would require traversing an environmentally sensitive area in the middle of the developer’s property to a section of Compton Road which has limited sight distance. At that time, staff supported what is currently being proposed as the preferred interparcel access as it would have less impact on the environment and reduce potential traffic hazards along Compton Road when compared with the original access proposal.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to review this request and proceed toward appropriately permitting interparcel access from Evening Hills, Parcel 19 of Tax Map 74-2-((1)) through the Board’s property known as Parcel N to access Balmoral Greens Avenue. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey.

Following a brief discussion, the question was called on the motion which carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor McConnell announced that the Springfield District Town Meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 14, 1998 in the West Springfield High School cafeteria.
