WOODROW WILSON BRIDGE PROJECT (Tapes 4-5)

Chairman Hanley noted that on November 18, 1998, a major milestone was reached for the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Project when the actual design of the replacement bridge was selected and announced at a press conference in Alexandria. The unveiling of the new design was the culmination of an 11 month bridge design competition and part of a sometimes contentious 10 year process of planning to replace the six-lane bridge.

Chairman Hanley stated everyone has seen the computer simulated photos on television and in the press of the “graceful, seamless, and open” design of the bridge which is supposed to look light and airy, but will still be strong enough to bear the massive weight of the Capital Beltway and I-95.

Chairman Hanley acknowledged that Fairfax County has played an important role in the project. She expressed her appreciation to Mount Vernon District Supervisor Gerald W. Hyland, who has been with the bridge process since the beginning; Bill Cuttler from the County’s Department of Transportation (DOT), who has served as the County’s representative for the last four years on the technical committee; and Anthony H. Griffin, Deputy County Executive, who participated on the jury of distinguished professionals chaired by former Maryland Governor Harry R. Hughes that selected the winning design.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board authorize the Chairman, in consultation with Supervisor Hyland and other Members who may have interest, to forward a letter, on behalf of the entire Board, to the Mayor and City Council of the City of Alexandria publicly expressing the Board’s continuing disappointment in the ongoing threats of litigation in an effort to slow down and potentially adversely impact the moving forward of this very important project in the regional transportation network. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Mendelsohn.

Chairman Hanley called the Board’s attention to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Beltway Project from the western edge of the I-95/395/495 Interchange to the American Legion Bridge, which has been on the books since 1993, and also another study causing a certain amount of confusion – the VDOT 2020 study. Because of the confusion between the studies, and the significance to neighborhoods along the Beltway and Tysons Corner and Merrifield which the Beltway Project will have, Chairman Hanley stated that she has asked former Board Chairman Jack Herrity to Chair a group consisting of citizens of neighborhoods from some of those affected areas and business representatives from Tysons and Merrifield, to work to facilitate the project with VDOT and to mitigate the impact on the neighborhoods.

With reference to his written Board Matter, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff, working with VDOT, to ensure that certain issues and priorities which he has outlined are passed on to the task force.

Supervisor Dix asked to amend the request to extend an invitation to the Town of Vienna to have representation on this task force, and this was accepted.

36.

THE MCLEAN VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT’S 75TH ANNIVERSARY (Tape 5)

Chartered in 1923, the McLean Community Fire Association was given the number designation “One” by the State Corporation Commission and has provided continuous service to the McLean community since that time.

Accordingly, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite Chief Clyde Clark and members of the McLean Volunteer Fire Department to appear before the Board in January 1999 to be recognized and thanked for their 75 years of dedicated service. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Frey and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

37.

BOUNDARY MARKERS IN FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that Fairfax County is home to several of the boundary markers that defined the original District of Columbia from 1791 to 1846. Reportedly, these stones were the first monuments created by the new federal government of the United States (US) in fulfillment of Article One, Section Eight of the US Constitution. The new federal government later lost jurisdiction over the stones when a portion of the District of Columbia land was retroceded to Virginia in 1846.

Supervisor Mendelsohn noted that several of the Boundary Stones rest in parks shared by two or more jurisdictions. The Interjurisdictional Task Force, which is a branch of the Northern Virginia Boundary Stones Committee is working toward renaming several of these interjurisdictional parks, including the West Corner Stone Park located near 29th and North Arizona Streets on Tap Map 40-4 where the City of Falls Church and Arlington and Fairfax Counties meet. Ownership of the West Corner Stone Park is shared by these three jurisdictions. The Park Task Force would like to rename the park the “Andrew Ellicott Park at the West Cornerstone” in honor of Andrew Ellicott, the first surveyor of the District of Columbia. Arlington County and the City of Falls Church have already approved the name change.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board approve the name change to “Andrew Ellicott Park at the West Cornerstone.” This motion was seconded by Supervisor Connolly and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

38.

EVANS FARM INN PROPERTY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that, as Board Members are aware, the Evans Farm Inn property in McLean has served as a focus for community activities for many years, and it has been announced that this property is being sold for development. The property now contains a restaurant, but it also offers unique open space and recreational opportunities to the community that are virtually irreplaceable.

For that reason, Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that many people in the community have requested the Board to establish a special tax district that could acquire and operate the Evans Farm Inn property as open space, as a park or as a recreational facility. Whether or not such a tax district will be established remains as an open question. Key points in resolving that question will be whether or not the Evans Farm Inn property can be acquired at a price that will be satisfactory to the Board and the community and whether that property can be adapted and operated as a public facility by a special tax district or by the County Park Authority.

With that in mind, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct the County Executive and appropriate staff to:

  • Contact the owner of the property and the prospective purchasers to determine whether the property is available for purchase;
  • Examine the property for potential public use as open space, a park, or a recreational facility. In considering the potential public use of this property, the County Executive should consider the potential operation of this property by either a special tax district or by the County Park Authority; and
  • Submit a progress report to the Board on December 7, 1998 on these actions and a plan of action, and milestones for the acquisition of all or a part of the Evans Farm Inn property.

This motion was seconded by Chairman Hanley.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion, which CARRIED by a recorded vote of seven, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Frey voting “NAY,” Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

The site for this exhibit is a one-acre parcel located adjacent to the Reston Regional Library across from the Town Center. This location provides ready access to additional information resources at the Library. With the rezoning of the Town Center in Reston this parcel was designated as open space, and it is expected that the owner, Terrabrook Virginia Communities, will donate this land for the Park.

As one of the funding sources for this project, REEF is submitting an application to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for a Sustainable Development Challenge Grant. Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to include a letter of endorsement from the Board with the grant application which is due on November 25, 1998. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Gross and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Kauffman and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

HILL ROAD SANITARY SEWER EXTENSION (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that currently two projects in the Sanitary Sewer Extension and Improvement (E&I) Program are awaiting funding, McAllen Heights and Five Oaks. The Hill Road project is a higher priority than the other two because the McAllen Heights and Five Oaks projects are not considered as urgent as the Hill Road project. Sufficient funding is available to fund all three projects.

In lieu of waiting for the Fiscal Year (FY) 1999 Third Quarter Budget Review, Supervisor Connolly moved 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 E&I, 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.

REZONING/FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN APPLICATIONS FDP/RZ 1998-PR-011 AND RZ/FDP 1997-PR-016 MADISON HOMES (GALLOWS ROAD) AND AMERICAN LAND DEVELOPERS Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that American Land Developers and Madison Homes (Gallows Road) are the applicants in the above referenced rezoning and final development plan applications.

Madison Homes proposes to rezone approximately 8.69 acres from the R-1 District to the PDH-5 District to develop 42 single family attached dwelling units on the East side of Gallows Road 800 feet north of Oak Street.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on January 11, 1999 if possible or January 25, 1999, if the 11th is unavailable. 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 Hyland and carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Kauffman, and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to process the Site Plan associated with Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 86-L-056-3 concurrently, and to schedule the public hearing to be held before the Board no later than March of 1999. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on the application by the Board, and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

EXTENSIONS TO THE METRORAIL SYSTEM (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman reminded the Board that efforts are underway at the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) and in the Northern Virginia region to start thinking about future extensions of the Metrorail system. The proposed rail extensions in the Dulles Corridor and the I-66 Corridor are in advanced stages of study.

Supervisor Kauffman asserted that it is time to begin planning for rail extensions from the current termini at Huntington and Franconia-Springfield toward Fort Belvoir and the Richmond Highway Corridor. He noted that there is no predetermined alignment, but projected growth in the southern part of the County and adjoining Prince William County do warrant laying the groundwork for such extensions.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct:

  • Staff from the Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) to coordinate with his office and return to the Board with an outline for accomplishing this work through appropriate amendments to the Comprehensive Plan; and
  • Staff to request the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to incorporate similar efforts as part of the 2020 Plan update which is currently underway.

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

CAPITAL BELTWAY IMPROVEMENTS (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, Beltway improvements were discussed. See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#35.)

Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board request the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the new committee to incorporate into their evaluations the following options which minimize the extent of clearing necessary within the existing right-of-way:

  • Converting the extreme left lane into a Bus Way/High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane and providing a "slip ramp" access and egress at all intersections between Braddock Road and Route 7. This type of ramp is in place at the Fairfax County Parkway and Backlick Road. This left lane can be created in several areas with minimal impact;
  • Creating a new travel lane (in most cases within existing cleared right-of-way) by changing the standards from a rural (ditch) section to an urban (curb and gutter) cross section. This would also minimize the extent of tree removal; and
  • Focusing major improvements (beyond existing work at the "Mixing Bowl") on major bottlenecks, the Braddock Road and I-66 interchanges. For other interchanges between Braddock and Route 7, limit work to the addition of Bus Way/HOV slip ramps.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

55.

Supervisor Kauffman stated that the Lee District Association of Civic Organizations annually recognizes the dedication of County staff and citizens of Lee District and Fairfax County through the annual awarding of the Les Dorson Distinguished Public Service Awards.

CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1997-BR-025 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova stated that Rezoning Application RZ 1997-BR-025 is an application for residential development on two parcels on Maury Road. This small infill application has been through a series of modifications since its original submission, including a significant reduction in density from eight lots to four. The Planning Commission conducted its public hearing on November 12, 1998 and is recommending approval. However, since the Board's public hearing will not be held until some time after the new year, the applicant is requesting concurrent processing of the Subdivision Plan.

Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Management (DPW&ES) to accept for concurrent and simultaneous processing a Subdivision Plan and any other necessary plans or drawings in conjunction with Rezoning Application RZ 1997-BR-025. She noted that 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 this application in any way.
