Chairman Hanley stated that the article indicated that in at least one instance, barrels of hazardous waste slipped by Ogden Martin and were being stored at the facility prior to burning.

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board:

  • Direct the County Attorney to review the contract with Ogden Martin to determine whether such occurrences are a violation of that contract;
  • Determine why the ash has not been tested since 1994; and
  • Provide information as to when the special ash fill opened.

This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

Vice-Chairman Hyland relinquished to the Chair to Acting-Chairman Dix and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to determine if there have been problems with omissions, and this was accepted.

Acting-Chairman Dix returned the gavel to Vice-Chairman Hyland.

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

PUBLIC HEARING ON THE ADVISABILITY OF ISSUANCE OF FIVE YEAR NOTICE TO PRIVATE COMPANIES FOR POSSIBLE COUNTY PROVISIONS OF SOLID WASTE COLLECTION SERVICES (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley stated that on September 14, 1998, the Board authorized advertisement of a public hearing to obtain input on the advisability of issuance of a five year notice to private companies for possible County provision of solid waste collection services. The public hearing is scheduled for November 23, 1998.

Chairman Hanley further stated that staff discussions with the private collection companies on alternatives to the five year notice are ongoing, and would hopefully conclude with a mutually acceptable alternative which would be the preferable way to deal with the current solid waste system concerns.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved to defer the public hearing on this item until February 22, 1999 so that discussions with the solid waste companies can be concluded before the Board takes action on this issue. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman.

Supervisor Dix moved to amend the motion to delete the initiative from the Board's Legislative Program that would seek authority to reduce the notice period from five years to two years. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey.

Following discussion, with input from Susan Mittereder, Legislation Liaison, Chairman Hanley stated that she would accept as an amendment that the Board defer taking a position on this item until the Board can determine what legislation is actually introduced in the General Assembly.

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

"NO TAX BREAKS FOR EROSION CONTROL WORK" (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley referred to her written Board Matters about an article in the Washington Post regarding "No Tax Breaks for Erosion Control Work." The article referred to two bills that were enacted by the 1998 General Assembly that stated that wetlands and reparian buffers can be eligible for reduced assessments under a Land Use Assessment Program and if the Board adopted such a local ordinance, following a public hearing, it could become effective as of January 1, 1999.

Chairman Hanley further stated that Section 58.1-3665 (HB 1425) of the Code of Virginia establishes a tax abatement program for "real estate that has been improved for the purpose of abating or preventing pollution of the waters of the Commonwealth. An ordinance can also be adopted to establish a program of partial tax abatements for such improvements not to exceed a period of 15 years. Following a public hearing, such an ordinance would apply to facilities put in place on or after July 1, 1998.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct:

  • The County Attorney to assure that such proposed ordinances would be consistent with State and County law;
  • The Department of Management and Budget (DMB) to estimate how much land might be affected;
  • The Department of Tax Administration (DTA) to provide an estimate of the revenue impact to the County; and
  • Staff to provide an interpretation of "or similar structural improvements installed…(Section 58.1-3665,A)" to see if the State law could refer to bioretention techniques.

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

Chairman Hanley referred to her written Board Matter regarding the United States (US) Army Corps of Engineers proposal to dump dredge spoil in the Potomac River in the vicinity of a long term water quality monitoring station near Gunston Cove.

Chairman Hanley moved that:

  • The Board write a letter to the Corps of Engineers asking them to find another location to deposit the dredge material that will not impact the water quality sampling stations at Gunston Cove; and
  • The letter be copied for the appropriate Maryland jurisdictions.

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

Supervisor Connolly said that everyone had read about the devastation caused by Hurricane Mitch in Central America. Those Fairfax County residents who have friends and relative in Honduras, Nicaragua, and Guatemala have benefited by the support of the local organizations, like the Hispanic Committee of Virginia, which have made extraordinary efforts to facilitate communication and get information about loved ones. Other groups are working to collect funds and supplies to aid victims. In Providence District many schools have conducted food drives, including Pine Spring Elementary School where children collected hundreds of cans to send to Honduras. He further stated that Delegate Robert Hull, whose son is a student at Pine Spring Elementary School, drove the collected goods to Saint Anthony's Church. For those who would like to help, the greatest need is for monetary donations. Please make checks payable to the International Response Fund-Hurricane Mitch and mail to the American Red Cross, P.O.

CITIZENS, STUDENTS, COUNTY EMPLOYEES, AND BUSINESS OWNERS MAKE PROVIDENCE VOLUNTEERFEST '99 A HUGE SUCCESS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that after three consecutive years of successful projects involving hundreds of residents, students, County employees and business owners, VolunteerFest has truly become a neighborhood tradition in Providence District.

Supervisor Connolly referred to his written Board Matter and reviewed the various projects and the individuals who worked on them. He expressed his appreciation to the hundreds of participants who made Providence VolunteerFest '99 a success.

"YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU" OCTOBER 23, 24, AND 25 IN MANTUA (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that for several years now the students at Mantua Elementary School have been delighting audiences with performances put on by the School's drama club, headed by Ms. Susan Devine. Parents have enjoyed the effort so thoroughly that this year they mounted their own production, Moss Hart and George Kaufman's hilarious spoof "You Can't Take It With You." Opening night was Friday, October 23, 1998 at the Mantua Elementary Gym stage. The play was a great success.

46.

DAILY GRILL RESTAURANT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Daily Grill has applied for an amendment to the Comprehensive Sign Plan for the Tysons II Galleria. The Daily Grill restaurant recently opened in the Galleria and the owners would like to locate a sign in an area the Comprehensive Sign Plan does not currently allow. The application the County recently accepted seeks flexibility to move the sign from one location to another. The amendment is urgent, since the Daily Grill has already opened and is waiting for an amendment before hanging a sign.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to expeditiously process the Daily Grill's application and schedule a public hearing to be held before the Planning Commission on or before December 10, 1998. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by unanimous vote.

HILL ROAD SANITARY SEWER EXTENSION (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly stated that the Oakcrest Subdivision is located north of Chain Bridge Road and east of the Oakton Shopping Center. Although the majority of the homes in the community are connected to sanitary sewer, a small number of dwellings in the vicinity of Hill Road, Ivy Lane, and Willow Drive are currently unsewered. The property located at 2787 Hill Road has a malfunctioning septic system that must be pumped out by the property owner every two weeks. The Department of Health has reviewed this location and concluded that the connection to public sanitary sewer is required. The extension of public sanitary sewer to this area could be provided by the Fairfax County Sanitary Sewer Extension and Improvement (E&I) Program. In lieu of waiting for the Fiscal Year (FY) 1999 Third Quarter Budget Review, Supervisor Connolly moved that that the Board:

  • Establish a sanitary sewer E&I project on an emergency basis to address the unsewered portion of the Oakcrest Subdivision;
  • Appropriate funds in the amount of $100,000 from Fund 400, Sewer Bond Revenue, to Fund 492, Sewer Bond Extension and Improvement, to initiate the design of the project; and
  • Direct staff to include a request in the FY 1999 Third Quarter Budget Review for any additional funds that may be required to complete this project, which will allow staff to immediately proceed with this project to address a potential public health situation in the Oakcrest Community.

This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide information as to whether there is a waiting list for funding for E&I Projects. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley announced this item would be deferred until later in the meeting.

(NOTE: There was no further action taken on this matter during the November 16, 1998 Board meeting.)

CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR MAJOR HELENE CASSELL (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman said that Major Helene Cassell, of the Fairfax County Police Department, formally announced her retirement on October 30, 1998. Major Cassell has been a County employee for over 26 years. Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to invite Major Cassell to appear before the Board at its meeting of November 23, 1998 for recognition for her many years of service to County residents both in her role as a police officer and more recently for her work as the Acting Director of the Department of Animal Control.

52.

GREENSTAR I, LLC (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman said that Greenstar I, LLC has filed an application referenced as Proffered Condition Amendment Application/Final Development Plan Amendment Application PCA/FDPA 85-L-046-2. The application has been accepted and scheduled for a public hearing before the Fairfax County Planning Commission on February 4, 1999. The applicant proposes to amend the proffers and final development plan to implement the new requirements of the Affordable Dwelling Units (ADU) Ordinance adopted by the Board on March 30, 1998. The applicant does not propose any modifications to the number of approved dwelling units, setbacks, open space or other proffered commitment associated with development of the property. Given the timing of construction, the applicant will actually provide almost double the number of ADU's required by current ordinance requirements.

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct the Department of Planning and Zoning to schedule PCA/FDPA 85-L-046-2 for a public hearing to be held before the Board as soon as possible following the Planning Commission hearing that is scheduled on February 4, 1999. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Hyland and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

53.

FAIRFAX COUNTY LICENSE PLATE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross said that the Fairfax County History Commission expressed its intent earlier this year of pursuing a special license plate for Fairfax County. If instituted, this plate could raise awareness of the historical significance of the County, act as a source of pride for County residents, and possibly even raise funds to assist in historic preservation.

Supervisor Gross noted that as with all special plates, it must first be approved by the General Assembly. Following approval, a design would be selected in consultation with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), and 350 prepaid applications would have to be submitted before the DMV would produce the plate.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board endorse the effort of the History Commission to develop a Fairfax County license plate, and request the Commission to report at the appropriate time with recommended designs and with suggestions for the use of any projected revenue. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Mendelsohn and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

54.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the Chairman to send a letter to VDOT, requesting VDOT to prepare a plan for clearer lane markings and larger, readable signs at the Seven Corners interchange, in conjunction with the replacement of the bridge decks scheduled for 1999. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

62.

TRANSPORTATION ANALYSIS IN THE VICINITY OF THE VIENNA METRO STATION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Dix presented a joint Board Matter with Supervisor Connolly. He moved that the Board direct staff, in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), to do a transportation analysis in the vicinity of the Vienna Metro Station. The specific focus should be at the Sutton Road and Nutley Street intersections with Virginia Center Boulevard. He noted that this is particularly timely because of the pending Site Plan for the 600,000 square feet of development in that vicinity and the planning underway by Metro for an additional parking structure at the Vienna Station. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly.

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

63.

SCHOOL CROSSING GUARDS (Tape 7)

With reference to this issue of School Crossing Guards, Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to examine the issue of how and by whom traffic management is handled during the peak hours around schools. Without objection, it was so ordered.

64.

POTENTIAL RAIL STATIONS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Dix said that in February 1994, the Board-appointed Dulles Corridor Task Force completed its preliminary report on Alternative Land Use Concepts recommended for testing as part of the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation's Alternatives Analysis for rail in the Dulles Corridor. More recently, a Task Force appointed by the State Secretary of Transportation, Shirley Ybarra, is discussing the phased implementation of rail service in the Dulles Corridor. In addition, both the Land Use and Transportation Committees of the Reston 2000 Task Force have recommended that the planning for the proposed extension of rail through the Dulles Corridor should be completed as expeditiously as possible.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board authorize staff to proceed with a study of the land use issues in the vicinity of the potential rail stations to be located in the Reston area, in the context of a possible Comprehensive Plan Amendment for portions of the Dulles Suburban Center. He also recommended that the Land Use Subcommittee of the Reston 2000 Task Force be part of the citizens advisory group that would be created for this planning effort. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked to amend the motion to include the entire corridor including Herndon, and this was accepted.

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

65.

DESIGNATION/UTILIZATION OF BALL FIELDS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Dix referred to a memorandum that he had received from Robert J. O'Neill, County Executive, regarding designation/utilization of ball fields. Supervisor Dix noted that he previously indicated that there are specific differences between girls fast pitch softball fields and boys only baseball fields and that they are specifically designated differently by the respective organizations. He said that the memorandum attempts to distinguish some differences, but he pointed out that there are some references that are factually incorrect. He added that the issue of providing facilities for gender specific sports is relevant. The Park Authority maintains that the fields are gender neutral and they are not. The memorandum makes reference that the only difference between fields for Little League and Girls Softball is that the softball field has a "skin" infield and that these fields can be converted from one use to another in one day. Supervisor Dix indicated that the fields cannot be converted in a day.

Supervisor Dix said that there needs to be an understanding with the Park Authority, Department of Recreation, and others involved, that the County's practice in the past has not been to set these fields aside as being gender neutral. He added that there are distinct differences in the using groups.

Therefore, Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff clarify this issue with those involved. Without objection, it was so ordered.

66.

NAME CHANGE FOR PROPOSED ROAD AT CHAIN BRIDGE GATEWAY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova said that the Chain Bridge Gateway project, located on the east side of Chain Bridge Road at the City of Fairfax and Braddock District boundary, is an ongoing interjurisdictional redevelopment effort. One element of the project is the realignment of a portion of University Drive both in the City and the County in the vicinity of George Mason University (GMU).

Supervisor Bulova stated that both the City and the County have added this new alignment to their Comprehensive Plans and the City has begun construction of a portion of the roadway. The City has designated their portion of the road as George Mason Boulevard. To be consistent, the County should adopt the new name as well.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to initiate a name change for this future road. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

67.

ALLOCATION OF FUNDING FOR TRAILS IN THE BRADDOCK DISTRICT (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova said that when the Board first appropriated funds for trail construction, there were three Braddock projects slated for funding: completion of the missing segment on Woodland Way, construction of a school walking trail to Bonnie Brae Elementary School and preliminary planning of the Guinea Road trail.

Supervisor Bulova noted that the Woodland Way project is on track and slated for construction this spring but the Bonnie Brae project was deleted due to right-of-way issues and reduced need. With an estimated cost of $1 million, the Guinea Road project would be difficult to fund over the short term and may be overtaken by events. She said that the Department of Transportation will be recommending that Guinea Road, between Braddock Road and Braeburn Drive, be added to the State's Six Year plan. Under this scenario, the trail would be constructed as part of the road widening project.

Supervisor Bulova said that there is another planned trail segment in the Braddock District that could be constructed with existing funds - the completion of the Long Branch Stream Valley trail from Olley Lane to Rutherford Park/Marley Road and from Guinea Road to the existing trail at Candace Lane. She added that these segments could be constructed for approximately $250,000 to $325,000, depending upon whether two fair weather crossings were needed.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to delete the Guinea Road trail project and add the Long Branch Stream Valley trail project. Funding for Long Branch should be allocated as follows: the balance available from funds from Fiscal Year (FY) 1998 after the Woodland Way project is completed, all available funds from FY 1999 and all available funds from FY 1998 Carryover. This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley.

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

68.

EXPEDITED AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF THE ZONING APPLICATIONS AND SITE PLAN FOR THE STEUART-BURKE SHOPPING CENTER [DEVELOPMENT PLAN AMENDMENT APPLICATION DPA C-546; PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 75-8-036 - TAX MAP PARCEL 77-1((1))63 AND REZONING OF TAX MAP PARCEL 77-1((1))64] (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova said that the Burke Centre Shopping Center, located east of Route 123 and north of Burke Center Parkway, consists of two commercial properties within the Burke Centre Conservancy with a parcel in an Industrial District (I-5) and sandwiched between them which is outside of the Conservancy. The properties have changed hands over the years but are again under one ownership.

Supervisor Bulova said that the owner proposes to expand the existing shopping center on the western parcel (parcel 63) by increasing the floor area of the existing grocery store by 12,000 square feet and adding a 5,000 square foot video store. This will require a Proffered Condition Amendment. The applicant is also proposing to rezone parcel 64 from the I-5 District to the PRC District. Both of these zoning changes will require an amendment to the Burke Centre Development Plan.

Supervisor Bulova pointed out that an error in the County records allowed the approval of Site Plans that exceeded the allowable floor area shown on the PRC plan. The owner relied on the past approved plans and made leasing commitments for expansion based on the expectation that no zoning changes would be needed. Since zoning changes must be made to bring the shopping center into compliance, the owner decided to bring the entire area into the PRC. To meet his lease commitments, the applicant is requesting expedited review of the zoning applications and concurrent, expedited processing of the PRC plan and Site Plan.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that that the Board direct staff to expedite and simultaneously process the Steuart-Burke Shopping Center zoning applications Development Plan Application DPA C-546; Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 75-8-036 and rezoning of parcel 77-1((1))63 along with the Site Plan with a February 1999 Board public hearing date. This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards, nor does it prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

A Certificate of Publication was filed from the Editor of the Fairfax Journal showing that notice of said public hearing had been duly advertised in that Newspaper in the issues of October 29 and November 5, 1998.

Following the public hearing, which included testimony by four speakers, discussion ensued with input from Daryl L. Varney, Assistant to the Zoning Administrator, Department of Planning and Zoning, (DPZ) and Jane W. Gwinn, Zoning Administrator, DPZ.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board not adopt either alternative and instead authorize the advertisement of new public hearings to be held before the Planning Commission and Board on a revised Alternative Two. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Kauffman.

Supervisor Frey moved a substitute motion to adopt Alternative Two of the proposed amendments to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 112 (Zoning Ordinance) regarding the establishment of a new bed and breakfast use to become effective on November 17, 1998 at 12:01 a.m. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross.

Alternative Two adds bed and breakfasts as a new Category 5 special exception use, which would be allowed with special exception approval in the R-P through R-4, PDH, and PRC Districts.

  • Imposes no restriction on the age of the structure; and
  • Subjects a bed and breakfast use to minimum lot size and bulk regulations of the zoning district in which it is located, as well as the determination that the proposed use does not pose any adverse impacts on the surrounding properties and preserves the residential character of the adjacent area.

Following discussion, Supervisor Gross asked to amend the motion to delete the R-3, R-4, PRC, and PDH Districts, but this was NOT accepted.

Following further discussion, Supervisor Gross asked to amend the motion to delete the R-3 and R-4 Districts, and this was accepted.

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that during the last three years he has received many complaints from constituents about the proliferation of illegal signage placed by individuals and businesses in the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) rights-of-way in the Dranesville District. He noted that his office has responded by enlisting the cooperation of businesses, industry, and County staff to comply with and enforce the County Sign Ordinance that governs the number and placement of allowable signs. He noted, however, that real enforcement capability rests with VDOT so local governmental efforts have been minimally effective.

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that the County has had voluntary assistance from one particular group dedicated to its mission to reduce sign blight. He noted that this group, led by Dranesville District resident, Mrs. Barbara Ellis, participates in VDOT's "Adopt-A-Highway" program and has demonstrated remarkable energy in reducing the illegal signage along the Route 7 corridor every week for about two years. He asserted that Mrs. Ellis and her neighbors are examples of volunteerism at its best.
