BELL ATLANTIC VIRGINIA - CENTREVILLE EXPEDITED SCHEDULING AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey said that Bell Atlantic Virginia, Incorporated, has filed a Special Exception application to permit a building addition to their switching station which is located at the intersection of Lee Highway and Moore Road. The building addition is necessary to house additional switches to provide telecommunications services to the Centreville area. At the current rate, Centreville will run out of available lines within a matter of months. Consequently, the timing of the Special Exception approval is critical to the applicant, but also to the residents of the area.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the scheduling of the Special Exception application and concurrently process the associated Site Plan. The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on Special Exception Application SE 98-Y-056 for April 5, 1999. Supervisor Dix seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

He said that the Prevent-A-Litter Coalition (PAL) has requested that they be allowed to work with the County to provide spay/neuter education programs with the funds.

BUS SERVICE TO THE ROLLING ROAD AND BURKE CENTRE VIRGINIA RAIL EXPRESS (VRE) LOTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that last March the Virginia Rail Express (VRE) Director asked Fairfax County staff to consider adjustments to service on the 17L, which serves both the Rolling Road and Burke Centre VRE lots. She said that she and the VRE Board have heard from residents of the area who would like to ride the train but are concerned about sometimes having to unexpectedly work late (past the last train departure time) and become stranded in the city without being able to return to their cars.

To provide a "safety valve" for passengers in this situation, VRE has asked the County to review costs for an additional 17L trip, which would depart the Pentagon at approximately 7:30 p.m. VRE would consider underwriting any required subsidy for that trip over a six month period with an evaluation of use and justification to support continued operation. Subsidizing a later bus, VRE believes, would be more cost effective than running a later train and may increase ridership on the VRE because passengers would know that they would have the 17L to rely upon should they be required to leave work later than anticipated.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to examine this proposal and report to the Board and the VRE Director regarding its feasibility. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

36.

ASIAN LONG-HORNED BEETLES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that it has come to her attention that the Asian long-horned beetle is one of the most destructive plant pests in China. The first Asian long-horned beetle infestation discovered in the United States (US) was in Brooklyn, New York in 1996. It was also found in the Amityville, New York area. No other infestation was known to exist in the US until July 1998 when it was identified in Chicago.

Supervisor Bulova moved that:

  • The information contained in her written Board Matter be provided to the Gypsy Moth staff and that they be requested to contact appropriate experts in the area, including the American Nursery and Landscape Association, to learn more about this pest.
  • The Board direct the Gypsy Moth staff to report with what measures can be taken to ensure that there is monitoring of the potential spread of this pest and educating of the public about what to look for and what to do if the beetle is identified in this area.

The motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

37.

UNMARKED POLICE CARS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that last week an incident occurred in the Annandale area where a woman was pulled over to the side of the road by a car that appeared to be an unmarked police car. The "police" car was equipped with a flashing blue light, and when its driver got out and ordered the woman out of the car he was wearing what looked like a police uniform. The woman was sexually assaulted before realizing that the man was only posing as a policeman. She was able to get away without further harm.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to review County Policies regarding unmarked police cars and the Policies of other jurisdictions regarding this issue and report its findings and recommendations for how this sort of incident that occurred last week in Annandale could be prevented in the future. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion which CARRIED by a recorded vote of eight, Supervisor Gross voting "NAY," Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

38.

SECURITY REGARDING PHOTO IDENTIFICATION CARDS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross referred to an article in the Washington Post about selling photographs that were sold for the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) purposes to private concerns. She asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to report with how the County handles the security and privacy of the Photo ID Cards that are taken for employees. Without objection, it was so ordered.

39.

HAZELTON STREET (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that she has been contacted by Ms. Bernice Goodrich, who resides on the northern segment of Hazelton Street near Seven Corners. Turning off Sleepy Hollow Road, onto Nicholson Street, one soon comes upon the southern leg of Hazelton Street on the right. The second, northern portion of Hazelton Street is several yards down on the left. Guests, taxicabs, and delivery trucks frequently become lost trying to reach Ms. Goodrich and her neighbors on the northern leg of Hazelton, due in large part because there is no signage alerting motorists that there is another portion of Hazelton further down the street. A sign on Nicholson Street should provide a simple solution to this frustrating problem.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to work with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to install appropriate signage on Nicholson Street indicating the two separate segments of Hazelton Street. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

40.

CAMELOT COMMUNITY PATROL (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that the Camelot Community Patrol is celebrating its 20th anniversary in March of 1999. The award-winning patrol has been in existence much longer than 20 years, and is recognized as the longest continuously operating Neighborhood Watch designation in the United States (US). Camelot received its official Neighborhood Watch designation, however, in March of 1979. This milestone deserves recognition as well, and planning is underway to celebrate the anniversary.

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board present a Certificate of Recognition to the Camelot Community Patrol at the festivities honoring its 20th anniversary. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Certificate of Recognition contain both the Chairman of the Board's signature as well as the Mason District Supervisor's signature. Without objection, it was so ordered.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

NV:nv

69.

WOODROW WILSON BRIDGE CONGESTION MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (Tape 11)

Supervisor Kauffman noted while the congestion management program for the Springfield Interchange project has been challenging, at least there is a budget for it. However, the Wilson Bridge Congestion Management Program is under development, but has no defined budget. He said that staff from the Department of Transportation, Department of Fire and Rescue, and Police Department are all working with other agencies around the region to develop measures that may alleviate the congestion caused by the construction of the Wilson Bridge and the four Beltway interchanges, including those at Telegraph Road and Route One. They are working without a defined budget from the four sponsoring agencies, the Federal Highway Administration, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Maryland State Highway Administration, and the District of Columbia (DC) Department of Public Works.

To assure the success of the program, Supervisor Kauffman stated that congestion management measures must be identified and implemented prior to construction-related congestion. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct staff to submit a letter through the Chairman to the sponsoring agencies requesting that an appropriate funding level be identified as soon as possible to provide for the success of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Congestion Management Program. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Following a brief discussion, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

72.

COMMENDATION OF VIRGINIA POWER AND FAIRFAX COUNTY POLICE, FIRE, PUBLIC WORKS, AND VEHICLE SERVICES EMPLOYEES (Tape 11)

Supervisor Connolly reminded the Board of the severe ice storm on January 15, 1998 that brought down trees and power lines throughout the region. Approximately 215,000 Virginia Power customers, most of them in Northern Virginia, lost power some time during the storm with a peak outage of 159,000 out at one time on Friday morning. He described the efforts of the dedicated Virginia Power and County emergency services personnel in response to this crisis.

Supervisor Connolly noted that it is essential that County citizens can depend on their government and the utilities that provide essential services during extreme weather events. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives of County emergency services, Police Department, Fire and Rescue Department, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES), and the Department of Vehicle Services (DVS), and Virginia Power, to appear before the Board to be recognized for their exemplary response and service to the citizens of the County during the January 15 ice storm. Supervisor Kauffman seconded this motion.

Following a brief discussion, with input from Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Hyland, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

73.

NOTIFICATION AT THE TIME OF PERMIT APPLICATION OF THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION'S (VDOT) PROPOSAL TO WIDEN THE CAPITAL BELTWAY AND REDESIGN INTERSECTIONS (Tape 11)

Supervisor Connolly stated that he had heard reports from contractors that there is no notification, verbal or written, provided by the County to residents or contractors when permits are requested for construction on properties which may be affected by the Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT's) plans for widening the Capital Beltway and redesigning certain intersections such as I-66. Some of his constituents reported that they have pulled permits for costly additions or other construction on homes directly in the path of the proposed expanded roadways. However, homeowners planning to sell homes in these areas are required to notify potential buyers of the pending road improvements.

Supervisor Connolly stated that he had sent a memorandum to the County Executive addressing this problem and received a response from the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES) indicating that they would address this issue when development plans are reviewed and developers would be informed of any findings.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to notify persons applying for permits in the affected area of VDOT's proposal of its possible impact on their properties so they can make informed decisions about whether to proceed. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive, and David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Hyland, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

75.

RECOMMENDATION FOR COUNTY AUTO DEALERS (Tape 11)

On behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman stated that Mr. Springer, a Mount Vernon resident, recently related a problem he had experienced concerning the personal property requirements regarding trade-in vehicles and the purchase of a new vehicle and a misunderstanding about the County=s notification process in such an instance.

With reference to Supervisor Hyland's written Board Matter, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to review this matter to determine whether a simple notice could be developed asking car dealers throughout this County to remind new purchasers of their responsibility for providing the County and State with proper notices on trade-in cars. He suggested that this issue could be added to the dealer's checklist used at the time of vehicle purchase. Supervisor Frey seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Hyland, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

76.

MOTION OF CONCURRENCE - ISLAMIC SAUDI ACADEMY (Tape 11)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that the Islamic Saudi Academy (Athe applicant@) has submitted a Proffered Condition Amendment application for property located at 8333 Richmond Highway. Since the Board of Supervisors is the owner of the property included in the application, the official acceptance of this application requires concurrence of filing by the Board.

Accordingly, on behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of the County=s property in the Proffered Condition Amendment application being filed on the Islamic Academy site. This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of the land use application in any way. Supervisor Frey seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Hyland, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

77.

DRIVER CONFUSION ON THE DULLES TOLL ROAD (Tape 11)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that recently a driver of the Dulles Toll Road came into Supervisor Hyland's office and said that he was told that when there is a red light in the ASmart Tag/Exact Change Only@ lanes, to just keep on driving. The only time a driver needs to stop is if there is a cone placed in the lane. This creates a bit of confusion. Accordingly, on behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to review with appropriate staff, the signal system and signage currently used on the Dulles Toll Road to identify a less confusing, more driver-friendly system. Without objection, it was so ordered.

78.

DISAPPEARING COUNTY TAGS (Tape 11)

With reference to Supervisor Hyland's written Board Matter on the subject, Supervisor Kauffman stated that a Mount Vernon resident, attempting to obtain her County vehicle tag three times, never received it in the mail. Similar cases in the Mount Vernon District were resolved, but cost these residents aggravation and needless worry.

On behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the staff of the Department of Tax Administration (DTA) to review its procedures on delivering vehicle tags to the Mount Vernon District residents and, further, identify ways to resolve the problem. Without objection, it was so ordered.

79.

LORTON TRANSPORTATION FUND (Tape 11)

In reference to Supervisor Hyland's written Board Matter on the subject, Supervisor Kauffman stated that during the deliberations of the Lower Potomac Planning District, the citizens task force recommended that a Greater Lorton Community Transportation Fund be established.

Supervisor Kauffman stated that Supervisor Hyland asserted that this recommendation is one that now has matured and needs to be established. Not only is the greater Lorton community experiencing tremendous growth, but the Laurel Hill plan is being reviewed and will be ready to submit to the federal government for action not later than mid-March. Supervisor Hyland fully supports the request to establish a Greater Lorton Community Transportation Fund as quickly as possible.

Accordingly, on behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

  • Review existing transportation initiatives as they exist in, but not limited to, the Fairfax Center Area.
  • Determine a method for establishing a similar system for the Greater Lorton Community.
  • Return with recommendations not later than the end of February so that if adopted, they could be included in at least, but not necessarily limited to, the Laurel Hill plan.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

FIBER UPGRADE TO MEDIA GENERAL'S CABLE SYSTEM (Tape 11)

Chairman Hanley reminded the Board that as part of the County's new cable television franchise agreement, Media General of Fairfax County, Incorporated, committed to building a fiber upgrade to its existing system.

As she had announced at the Board meeting on January 11, 1999, 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. These fiber “hub” buildings 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 as follows:

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 relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Kauffman and 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.
  • The Director of DPW&ES to expedite the building permits as well.

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Hyland, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.
