MEDIA GENERAL'S SECTION 2232 PUBLIC FACILITY REVIEW APPLICATIONS FOR SEVEN SITES THROUGHOUT FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley reminded Board Members that, as part of the County's renewed cable television franchise agreement, Media General of Fairfax County, Incorporated, committed to building a fiber upgrade to its existing system. The fiber upgrade entails the expansion of facilities at existing Media General sites as well as the addition of several additional hub sites throughout the County.

Chairman Hanley stated that Media General has filed requests for Section 2232 Public Facility Review Applications for seven sites throughout the County to develop a one-story building consisting of approximately 1000 square feet which will be unmanned. There are no antennas or monopoles associated with these hub sites. This fiber “hub” building will contain telecommunication switching equipment necessary for the Home Subscriber Network (HSN) and the County's Institutional Network (INET).

The Section 2232 Public Facility Review Application requests are:

Merrifield 2232-P98-15 Springfield FS-S98-28

Chantilly FS-Y98-29 Butts Corner FS-B98-30

Mount Vernon 2232-L98-20 Lorton 2232-V98-21

Media General is in the process of filing Special Exception (SE) requests for several of the hub sites and Site Plans for all of the seven hub sites. To complete the fiber upgrade by the end of the year, Media General has requested concurrent processing of the Site Plans with the Special Exception requests and expedited processing of the Site Plans.

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct:

  • The Director of the Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) to schedule the public hearings for the necessary SE requests as soon as possible.
  • The Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES) to accept the Site Plans concurrent with these SE requests.
  • The Director of DPW&ES to expedite the review of the Site Plans for all of these hub sites.
  • Staff to expedite the above process for Public Facility Application 2232-D98-18 once a site has been determined.
  • Staff to expedite this process after the Supervisors in the Districts where the facilities will be located have been notified and concur on the sites.

FUNDING FOR THE DUVAL ART STUDIO ADDITION TO THE MCLEAN COMMUNITY CENTER (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn recalled that on December 8, 1997, the Board authorized the acceptance of a financial gift to the McLean Community Center (MCC) by former State Senator Clive L. DuVall II. This gift would be used to construct an addition to the Center in memory of Senator DuVal's late wife, Susan B. DuVal. The proposed addition would provide studio space for study of the visual arts. The Board also authorized the waiver of all fees associated with plan review and permits for this addition to a County-owned facility.

As the project moves through the design and engineering phase, the Department of Finance and the County Attorney have worked with the MCC to refine the terms and conditions relating to the use of funds contributed for construction. The language presented for the Board's consideration today protects both the County's interests and the donor's wishes for the use and disbursement of funds.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board allow the establishment of a special interest-bearing construction gift account for the DuVal Art Studio addition to the McLean Community Center. This account will specify that the funding for the Studio will be coming from the McLean Project for the Arts (MPA), using funds given to the MPA for this purpose by Senator DuVal. This gift is also contingent upon:

  • Utilization of the gift funding exclusively to construct the Susan B. DuVal Art Studio.
  • Providing for the unexpended gift funds to earn interest and to expend this interest in support of the DuVal Art Studio project prior to expending any principal.
  • Returning to the donor any portion of the gift funds not required to complete the DuVal Art Studio project.
  • Providing to the donor a regular accounting of both the income and expenditures of the funds given for the DuVal Art Studio project.

In addition, current Board Policy requires that a Board Information Item be prepared prior to award of construction and professional and consultant contracts in excess of $100,000. To expedite the construction of the Susan B. DuVal Art Studio, and in furtherance of the desires of the donor, Senator Clive DuVal, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board authorize the following:

  • The County Executive or the Deputy County Executive to approve this construction contract.
  • Execution of the construction contract be in conformance with the Fairfax County Purchasing Resolution.
  • If the bid amount exceeds the estimate by 10 percent, the County Executive will discuss the contract with the Board Member in whose District the project is located and the Chairman of the Board before taking any action.
  • The Board will receive a copy of the standard information and staff report for the contract awarded.

Supervisor Connolly seconded this motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

Supervisor Mendelsohn commended Mr. Carey Needham of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES) Project Management staff for his performance on this complex contract. The MCC has indicated that Mr. Needham has been responsive and diligent in addressing the many issues that arose to bring this addition to the construction stage.

Ground breaking for this project is tentatively set for February 13, 1999.

41.

REQUEST FOR OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT REGARDING GEORGETOWN PIKE (ROUTE 193) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn noted that in the last round of amendments to the Comprehensive Plan, text in the Upper Potomac Planning District was changed to add additional protection to the important “scenic and historic character and the historic integrity” of the Georgetown Pike (Route 193). The text clearly states that Georgetown Pike should be maintained within its existing right of way. In contrast to this, the Plan Map, in its most current version, shows Georgetown Pike as an existing arterial road, and the map legend recommends it as a roadway that should be widened or improved. Although the Plan Map shows that 193 is to remain a two-lane road, its designation as a road to be “improved” requires staff to request the dedication of additional right-of-way during the standard review processes conducted by the County on land proposed for development along Georgetown Pike. This type of request, however, is in direct conflict with the recommendations in the Plan text.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to initiate an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment to make the recommendations of the Plan Map consistent with those contained in the Plan text. Supervisor Hyland seconded this motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

43.

“2000 TREES BY 2000” (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn provided a short update on the progress of the Tree Preservation Task Force by announcing a new “2000 Trees By 2000” tree planting initiative. Board Members are encouraged to attend and participate in the next full Task Force meeting, scheduled for February 24 at 4:00 p.m., when small groups will present a draft report on their progress.

At its January 6, 1999 meeting, the Fairfax County Tree Commission adopted a resolution announcing a new citizens' tree planting initiative and has requested that this initiative be announced to the Board and to the community. The purpose of the initiative, “2000 Trees By 2000” is to encourage the planting of new trees throughout the County. The goals of the initiative are to plant at least 2000 trees in each Supervisor District and a total of at least 20,000 trees Countywide by the year 2000. Trees planted as required for development projects cannot count toward the total. Awards will be given by the Tree Commission to the first District to reach the goal of 2,000 trees and to the District that plants the most trees. Tree nurseries throughout the County have agreed to provide discount coupons for trees purchased for this program. The Tree Commission will provide each Board Member with the information needed to respond to citizens' inquiries.

Following input from Cecilia A. Lammers, Urban Forestry Branch, Supervisor Mendelsohn issued a challenge to each Supervisor District to see who can plant the most trees by the end of 1999, and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to publicize this tree planting initiative. Without objection, it was so ordered.

44.

VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (VDOT) ROAD CONSTRUCTION FUNDS TO REPLACE TREES REMOVED AS A RESULT OF ROAD CONSTRUCTION (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn noted that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has allocated money every year from road construction funds to plant wildflowers in State rights-of-way. The amount of money allocated for this program for Fiscal Year (FY) 1999 is in excess of one million dollars.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Chairman to write a letter to the Northern Virginia Delegation of the General Assembly requesting that a similar fund be set up and funded to enable VDOT to replace trees removed as a result of construction of roads. Without objection, it was so ordered.

45.

CHAPTER 108 (NOISE ORDINANCE) (Tape 4)

Mr. Bond has served on EQAC for 12 years, and has made important contributions to benefit the environment during his years of service.

DULLES CORNER PROPERTIES L.L.C. (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix said that Dulles Corner Properties L.L.C. recently submitted several land use applications for property that is already zoned for commercial development in the vicinity of Coppermine Road and Horse Pen Road. These are "housekeeping" applications that request no additional density or use approvals.

Supervisor Dix moved that:

  • Proffered Condition Amendment Applications PCA 88-C-066-3, PCA 96-H-044, PCA 86-C-029-7, Final Development Plan Amendment Application FDPA 86-C-029-3, Final Development Plan Application FDP 86-C-029-6 receive expedited processing and be scheduled for public hearings at the earliest possible dates.
  • The Board authorize the staff to accept Site Plans for this proposed development for concurrent processing with the PCA/FDPA/FDP requests.

This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable conditions, regulations or adopted standards, and it does not prejudice the consideration of these applications in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded this motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Also the Braddock Road Youth Club (BRYC) Rams won a 30-24 triple overtime victory over the Washington DC Blitz to capture the 110-pound championship.

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

  • Invite the coaches, players, and parents from both teams to appear before the Board at a future date.
  • Prepare an appropriate Certificate of appreciation, so the Bulldogs and the Rams can be recognized for the pride that they have brought to Fairfax County.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

51.

DONATION OF HISTORICAL RECORDS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix said that it has come to his attention that Messrs. Bernard Corbett and Christopher Corbett donated over 23,000 old Fairfax County individual parcel and subdivision land records to the County. Possession of these records, which date back to the 17th century, will help those doing title searches and provide a valuable source for historical research of the development of Fairfax County.

Supervisor Dix commended Bernard and Christopher Corbett for their contribution of these historical records to the County and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite John Frey, Clerk of the Circuit Court, Sheriff Carl Peed, and the Corbetts to appear before the Board so that they can be recognized for this important contribution to the citizens of Fairfax County.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review and report with a recommendation and possible funding source to restore the replacement of street signs in Collingwood-on-the-Potomac and, eventually, throughout Fairfax County.

BEVERAGES SERVED AT CIVIC ASSOCIATION SOCIAL FUNCTIONS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland distributed to Board Members a letter from a member of the Board of the Mount Vernon on the Potomac Citizens Association raising concerns about their association's liability insurance coverage in the event of serving alcoholic beverages at their social functions even though there are no admission charges, nor fees collected for beer, wine and other refreshments.

Supervisor Hyland said that the author of the letter, has done considerable research on the subject and finds, after discussing the matter with the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Commission, there are some discrepancies which he cannot reconcile with the liquor liability exclusion portion of his association's insurance policy. He expressed concern that the payment of mandatory homeowners association dues may indirectly constitute a sale under ABC=s interpretation and may require his association to secure a license when the association gives away alcoholic beverages at social events.

His further concern is that any civic or homeowners association can be blind-sided by the interaction of the ABC=s interpretation and liquor liability exclusions in their liability insurance policies. He asks that steps be taken to reduce the likelihood that associations unwittingly nullify their liability insurance.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board refer this issue to the County Attorney and request that an opinion be obtained from the State Attorney General's office as to the parameters governing the dispensing of wine and beer at social functions of homeowners associations and under what conditions they might require special permits for their events where food and beverages are served. Supervisor Connolly seconded this motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

SCHEDULING OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1998-PR-046 AND SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 98-P-045 FOR MANORCARE HEALTH SERVICES INCORPORATED (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly stated that ManorCare Health Services Incorporated has submitted applications for an assisted living facility to serve individuals with Alzheimer and related disorders. ManorCare proposes to locate the facility on the southwest quadrant of the intersection of Chain Bridge Road and Sutton Road. The Planning Commission public hearing is scheduled for January 28, 1999. Due to contractual obligations and circumstances of the individual property owners, the applicant has requested a public hearing before the Board in February.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing before the Board for Rezoning Application RZ 198-PR-046 and Special Exception Application SE 98-P-045 for February 22, 1999 at 3:30 p.m. 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. Supervisor Dix seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Kauffman and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

74.

DRAINAGE PROJECTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly stated that he recently had an experience with a drainage project in Providence District where a landscape architect assisted in the project at the end, rather than the beginning of the project. The project may have been safer had a County landscape architect worked with the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES) to prepare for and provide landscaping of the channel at the beginning of the process.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board encourage DPW&ES to examine the feasibility of involving a County landscape architect throughout the process of each drainage project. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Kauffman and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

75.

PRESENTATION OF RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE EAKIN FAMILY TO FAIRFAX COUNTY PARKS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that recently the Fairfax County Park Authority passed a resolution to recognize the most recent of years of contributions by the Eakin Family, one of the first land donors to Fairfax County Parks. In 1951 the donation of land along Accotink Creek by brothers John and Leroy Eakin, Jr. enabled the fledging Park Authority to acquire stream valley land at a time when no bond funds were available for land acquisition. In 1966 Eakin Properties established a trust fund to provide ongoing maintenance and other improvements to Eakin Park. This latest generous donation of $134,546 in matching funds for Eakin Park on Prosperity Avenue will make possible numerous improvements including the addition of trails, sidewalks, a picnic shelter, and drinking fountain, and repair storm drainage facilities and an existing pond.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite John Eakin, Jr., Richard Eakin, and Leroy Eakin III, sons of the original donors, to appear before the Board on January 25 along with Providence District Park Authority Representative Joanne Malone, and other Park Authority representatives, so that the resolution honoring the Eakin Family's important contribution to the citizens of the County may be presented and the Board given the opportunity to publicly thank the members of the family for their extraordinary generosity. Without objection, it was so ordered.

76.

LAKE STREET RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross stated that a Residential Permit Parking District (RPPD) was recently implemented on Lake Street, from Tyler to Gordon Street. She noted that the parking problem originating with the nearby apartment complexes has moved down the street. She said that she has forwarded to the County's Department of Transportation (DOT) a copy of a letter and petition, along with the $50 application fees from residents on the portion of Gordon Street from Lake Street to the dead end requesting implementation of an RPPD.

Supervisor Gross also noted that she has resubmitted petitions signed by residents of the portion of Lake Street from Gordon Street to Glen Carlyn requesting implementation of an RPPD. This portion did not originally meet the parking criteria for implementation when surveyed, but the residents report a substantial increase in parking along this block. These residents paid application fees when the petitions were first submitted in May 1998.

Accordingly, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board waive the RPPD requirement of 100 contiguous or nearly-contiguous parking spaces, and direct DOT to expeditiously complete the parking survey. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

77.

FLU SEASON AND FOOD SERVICE SAFETY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross stated that a constituent related to her a disturbing experience at a local food establishment. Apparently the food the constituent ordered was not to her liking and she asked to speak to the chef. He came to her table, but told her that he could not get too close to her because he was ill with the flu.

Supervisor Gross noted that it is a violation of the Code of the County of Fairfax for employees of food establishments to handle or prepare food while ill. This is especially important now at the height of flu season. She stated that in discussing the matter with staff from the Health Department, she learned that this is not an uncommon occurrence and further education may be needed to help protect the patrons of the County's eating establishments.

Accordingly, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the staff of the Office of Public Affairs to work with the County's Department of Health to prepare information, along with a plan for dissemination to food establishments, reminding them of the Policy governing ill employees, and the rules and regulations regarding food preparations, such as repeated washing of hands, use of gloves, handling of utensils, and conditions of food preparation surfaces. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

78.

GIFTS TO COUNTY RETIREES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross referred to a memorandum from Peter Schroth, Director, Department of Human Resources (HR), copies of which she circulated to the Board, regarding County gifts for retirees. Following a survey of County staff and consulting with the Employees Advisory Council (EAC), HR staff decided on five retirement recognition items that can be engraved or imprinted with a County seal. These items include the following:

  • Upgraded watch
  • Crystal bowl
  • Set of coasters
  • Desk clock
  • County afghan

She announced that vendor samples of these items (without the engraving or seal) are on display at the entrance to the HR office, Suite 258, all week long. She encouraged her colleagues to view the items.

79.

EXPEDITED PROCESSING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION TO PERMIT THE INSTALLATION OF A PYLON SIGN FOR THE SULLY PLACE SHOPPING CENTER (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey stated that the Sully Limited Partnership is preparing to file a Special Exception application to permit installation of a pylon sign for the Sully Place Shopping Center at the corner of Route 50 and Metrotech Drive. This is in an effort to renovate the center.

At the request of the applicant, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to:

  • Expedite the processing of the Special Exception application for the pylon sign.
  • Concurrently process any Plans associated with the sign concurrently with the pending Special Exception application.

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. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

80.

INOVA HEALTH CARE SERVICES ZONING APPLICATIONS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey stated that Inova Health Care Services has filed concurrently Rezoning Applications RZ 198-SU-067, Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 85-C-091-4, and Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 84-C-076-5 for the Fair Oaks Hospital site and surrounding adjacent properties on Rugby Road which are owned by Inova. The purpose of the applications is to permit development of an assisted living facility and medical office buildings, including an ambulatory care center.

At the request of the applicants, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES) to process the Site Plans associated with this property concurrently with the aforementioned applications. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

81.

TRINITY CENTRE ZONING APPLIATIONS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey stated that Trinity Centre has filed a Proffered Condition Amendment application to amend Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 86-S-071 to revise the language of one of the proffers associated with that application. The language changes will not affect the approved uses, it is merely a clarification of the timing of some of the uses of the site.

Given the narrow scope of the request, Supervisor Frey asserted that it should not take long for staff to review. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct staff to:

  • Expedite the scheduling of the public hearing for PCA 86-S-071 as soon as possible.
  • Accept concurrently any Plans associated with the application.

Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

82.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board waive the application fee for the RPPD on Street Valley Drive in Chantilly. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

83.

TRANSFER OF COUNTY-OWNED PROPERTY TO THE PARK AUTHORITY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey referred to his lengthy written Board Matter regarding maintenance of property dedicated to the Board during the rezoning process and the transfer of such land to the Park Authority. He noted that the Board has requested on several occasions an inventory of lands that are in the name of the Board that should be in the name of the Park Authority. On June 29, 1998 the Board had requested a timetable for an inventory of lands.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to initiate immediately the process for the transfer of the County-owned property located on Tax Map 55-3 Parcel 26 to the Park Authority. Supervisor Dix seconded this motion.

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

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to develop as soon as possible a timetable for providing information regarding the appropriate transfer of County-owned lands to the Park Authority. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

Supervisor Dix asked to amend the motion to allow individual Supervisors to review that list prior to the actual transfer to the Park Authority.

Supervisor Frey clarified that his motion was a request for a list of those properties so that the Board can determine the appropriate course of action.

Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to change "as soon as possible" to "no later than March 1, 1999," and this was accepted.

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

84.

DEER HUNTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey referred to a letter from Mr. Julian Bolton from the Izaak Walton League regarding the donation of venison from the County's deer hunts and Chairman Hanley noted that she had already referred the letter to staff.

Supervisor Dix asked to amend the request to direct staff to provide the answer today, and this was accepted.

Following a summary response from Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive, without objection, the request, as amended, was so ordered.

There was a brief discussion regarding public safety issues in regard to the deer hunts, with input from Mr. O'Neill.
