SOLID WASTE COLLECTION SERVICES (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley noted 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, and, at her request on November 16, 1998, the public hearing was postponed from the originally scheduled date of November 23, 1998 until February 22, 1999.

Chairman Hanley stated that, at that time, staff discussions with the private collection companies were ongoing and it was hoped that those discussions would result in a mutually acceptable alternative to the five year notice. The proposed alternative would additionally resolve other issues with which the County is dealing regarding its solid waste management system. Unfortunately, it appears unlikely that an agreement with all of the collection companies will be possible.

Many questions are still outstanding with regard to the overall solid waste management system and the financial situation of that system, and additional meetings with the collectors and citizens are required to develop a comprehensive solution. Staff had proposed that a comprehensive analysis of the alternatives be prepared this year for incorporation into the Fiscal Year (FY) 2001 budget process.

Since the public hearing on the five year notice, if held on February 22, 1999, would require Board action without the answers to many of the questions which have been raised, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to postpone the public hearing indefinitely, with the option of this issue being brought back before the Board at a time when it can be considered in context with the overall system analysis currently being conducted. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

32.

2000 TREES BY 2000 (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn noted that on January 11, 1999, he challenged the Board to join him in the new program initiation by the Tree Commission, 2000 Trees by 2000. To assist, the Virginia Department of Forestry was contacted and they, in conjunction with the National Tree Trust, are making approximately 14,000 trees available to be planted in Fairfax County. The trees are seedlings from six to 24 inches in height and include the Eastern Red Bud, River Birch, Dogwood, Sweet Gum, Bald Cypress, and Schumard Oak species.

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 the Variance application in any way. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Review the suggestions and report on the feasibility of these proposals.

· Continue to communicate to those considering a settlement of this package to continue to advise them that the Board has serious objections to closing Church Street unless there is an alternative that provides for the same direct access to the Parkway.

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

44.

ROADWAY BULLETIN BOARDS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland pointed out that people continue to use the intersections as an ideal spot to place signs, even though they know it is not legal. They post signs on utility poles, trees, other legal signs, in the public rights of way, etcetera.

Supervisor Hyland suggested the possibility of allowing the installation of roadway bulletin boards at intersections where there is adequate space without impeding the site distance be investigated. Bulletin boards could provide a much-needed, long overdue and obvious service to the surrounding neighborhood. It could be a spot where schools could advertise their theater nights, car washes, and even yard sales.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to consider safe spots in the Mount Vernon District (as a pilot) where community bulletin boards could be located and to return to the Board with recommendations. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Kauffman noted that the idea of roadway bulletin boards at governmental centers to inform citizens of upcoming events, etcetera was previously discussed and he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide an update of this issue. Without objection, it was so ordered.

45.

BICENTENNIAL OF GEORGE WASHINGTON'S DEATH (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that throughout 1999, the bicentennial year of the death of George Washington will be commemorated by a nationwide celebration of his life and legacy. The events are sponsored by the Ladies of Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens.

The Director of Historic Mount Vernon, James Rees is inviting organizations, schools and communities to participate in a program honoring George Washington. Becoming an official George Washington Bicentennial Community is simple and fun -- all one needs to do is organize four activities which will center attention on George Washington during this important year. How does one go about it? Please call toll free 877 GWB 1999; e-mail to bicentennial@mountvernon.org; or www.gwashington1999.org.

Also as part of the celebration, Mount Vernon is hoping to issue a Mount Vernon/George Washington license plate through the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). They still need a few more applications to meet the required minimum order of 400 plates. The new license plate will be available for $10, and can be renewed annually for $10 more. A personalized version can be obtained. The Mount Vernon Ladies Association has asked one of its volunteers to gather the

applications and process the order as soon as 400 applications have been received. Interested individuals should call 703-799-8659 or send a completed application and payment, to:

Mr. Jack Evans

George Washington=s Mount Vernon

P.O. Box 110

Mount Vernon, VA 22121

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to work with the Mount Vernon Ladies Association to publicize these events and other opportunities, throughout the County all through 1999. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

46.

EXPEDITED AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING REQUESTED FOR KINGDOM HALL (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that he received a request for expedited and concurrent processing from the Building Committee of Kingdom Hall which is proposed for the property located at Holland Road and Andrus Road in the Mount Vernon District (Tax Map Number 102-1 [1] parcels 38, 39, 41, 42, 44).

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Kingdom Hall building project rezoning and plan review be expedited and concurrently processed and that the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) be asked to expedite the public hearing date for the special permit application. 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. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

47.

STRAIGHTENING OUT MINOR LOT LINE ADJUSTMENTS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland referred to the issue of the adjustment of property lines and he noted that the Board changed the ordinance several years ago. Notwithstanding that a problem has occurred. The problem that has come is whether the Board can permit the adjustment of property lines without requiring public improvements or associated waivers and particularly whether the Board can do this where the property is not on a public street.

Supervisor Hyland explained that as to the requirement for public street frontage improvements, the staff has been interpreting the provision as it applies to minor adjustments of property lines to mean that only properties with frontage on State-maintained roads are applicable. There have been cases where staff has required right-of-way dedication or easements that can only be sized by submitting a formal study. Dedication or granting of any easement seems unreasonable for this type of

an application. In addition, the requirement that the properties have frontage on a State-maintained road is simply unwarranted. The ordinance should provide that any property applying for a minor adjustment of property lines should be permitted as long as:

  • There is no additional building lot being created.
  • The application complies with existing lot size requirements and bulk regulations for the zone.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board:

  • Refer this matter to staff for review and recommendation to the Board to accomplish the desired changes.
  • Direct staff to review and provide a recommendation on the suggested ordinance amendments as outlined in his written Board Matter.

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

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, there was another appointment to the Millennium Streeting Committee. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#49.)

54.

PINE RIDGE PARK (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that in July of 1997, the Board endorsed her request to direct County staff and the staff of the School Board and Park Authority to work together to resolve the future of the Pine Ridge Park site.

Supervisor Gross noted that the Pine Ridge site comprises 43 acres of property at 4301 Woodburn Road. The property was acquired many years ago as a potential school site, but the school was never built. Since the 1980's, the property has been administered under a lease agreement by the Fairfax County Park Authority and developed with ball fields and garden plots. The surrounding community would like to see the property become a permanent park.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board reaffirm its endorsement of July 7, 1997, that County staff, School Board staff and Park Authority staff work together to resolve the future of the Pine Ridge site, and report with possible options not later than August 1, 1999. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive, the question was called on the motion which carried by unanimous vote.

55.

"NO PARKING" SIGNS ALONG CHOWAN AVENUE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that she has received a number of calls from residents in Lincolnia Park about an ongoing traffic and safety problem along Chowan Avenue near its intersection with Little River Turnpike. Taxicabs and other vehicles from

nearby apartment complexes are parking along this stretch of Chowan Avenue, especially at night. It is a narrow road with no curbs, and the vehicles parked there are usually causing safety and sight distance problems. In addition, the vehicles are damaging the edge of the road and the shoulder, which has become muddy and deeply rutted. Normally, a Residential Permit Parking District (RPPD) could resolve this situation; however, the first block of Chowan on the east side is zoned commercial.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to work with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and her office to install "No Parking" signs at appropriate locations along the affected area of Chowan Avenue. Any traffic parking surveys should be conducted during evening or early morning hours when this situation is at its worst. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

56.

JEFFERSON RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that she has received completed petitions from the residents on the north side of Randolph Drive, between Wenruth Place and Braddock Road, requesting inclusion into the Jefferson Residential Permit Parking District (RPPD). This area consists of three homes, and since this block is within 1500 feet of Thomas Jefferson High School it automatically qualifies for the RPPD.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board waive the application fee for the applicants on Randolph Drive petitioning to be included in the Jefferson RPPD. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

57.

BAILEYS COMMUNITY CENTER (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that the Baileys Community Center, which underwent a major renovation and facelift over the past year, will hold a grand re-opening ceremony and ribbon cutting on Saturday, February 20, 1999 at 3:00 p.m. at the Center, located at 5920 Summers Lane in Baileys Crossroads. Baileys Community Center offers a number of recreation and leisure activities to Fairfax County residents, as well as being home to Higher Horizons Headstart.

Supervisor Gross said that the renovation and expansion project added approximately 6,500 square feet of new floor space and renovated 3,000 square feet of the existing building. It is now a state-of-the-art facility, and represents yet another improvement to the Baileys Crossroads area. She invited Members of the Board and all interested residents to this community celebration on February 20, 1999.

59.

CREATION OF A SUPERVISORS' FELLOWSHIP FOR COUNTY STAFF MEMBERS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly acknowledged that Board Members and their staff depend on the excellence of staff on all levels of County agencies to effectively serve constituents. Board Member's staff can help constituents better by understanding the way each department functions. Conversely, Supervisor Connolly stated that it is invaluable for County staff to understand the way the Board Members' offices function and the special role that Board Members and their staff play in helping citizens. He stated that anything that furthers a mutual understanding between the Board staff and County staff would benefit County citizens.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to explore the feasibility of setting up a fellowship program that would be made available to County staff members as part of their career development, allowing those selected to spend six weeks to three months, as appropriate, to be assigned to a Board Member's office, fielding constituent calls and working with various County departments and other groups as a part of the Supervisor's staff for that period of time. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

60.

CAPITAL BELTWAY IMPROVEMENTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly reminded the Board that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is considering improvements to the Capital Beltway between the Springfield interchange and the American Legion Bridge. While most work on the roadway would remain within current VDOT right-of-way, VDOT staff has indicated that work at interchanges will require additional land, in some cases taking property in residential neighborhoods. At its series of public information meetings held in November, VDOT unveiled preliminary interchange concepts overlaid on current aerial photographs. Many of these concepts showed possible exit and entrance ramps located over existing homes. Homeowners of the affected properties have serious concerns about the effect that these concepts will have on property values, especially as these concepts are now considered disclosable information when selling a home.

Supervisor Connolly stated that under Chairman Hanley's leadership, the Fairfax County Beltway Improvement Task Force (FCBITF) was formed and held a series of public information meetings to solicit citizen input on the Beltway study. He attended two of those meetings and reported that they were very well attended. The subject of property values related to right-of-way takings arose as a source of significant concern.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board:

  • Direct staff of the Department of Transportation (DOT) to work with VDOT staff and the FCBITF to explore ways to help affected homeowners and the Board gain a clearer understanding of VDOT's right-of-way process, especially as it relates to fluctuations in property values as a result of the release of improvement concepts to the public.
  • Direct the FCBITF to include in its final report any recommendations for changing or improving this process.

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley announced that the FCBITF will hold a public meeting at Churchill Road Elementary School at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 9, 1999.

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

61.

FIRE MARSHALL'S OFFICE REVIEW OF BUILDING PLANS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly reminded the Board that the Fire Marshall's office reviews building plans in conjunction with Building Permit Review. He stated that it was recently called to his attention that there are only two full time employees in the Fire Marshall's Office who review building plans. In an effort to keep the County's review process timely and streamlined, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to examine and report with recommendations to improve the flow of the review time and keep the review time as short as possible. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

62.

PROFFERED TRAFFIC SIGNALS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly stated that he recently encountered a situation in Providence District where a developer proffered to provide a traffic signal at the entrance to a proposed development. He said that neighboring civic associations assumed, based on the proffer and the developer's commitment, that a signal would be installed. However, following the rezoning, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) stated that a signal was not warranted by the development. Supervisor Connolly asserted that had VDOT been involved and provided with the proffers during the rezoning case, VDOT may have been able to notify the developer and citizens that the signal might not be warranted.

Following a brief discussion, Supervisor Connolly stated that signals are commonly proffered with land use cases and the installation of a signal in a corridor can play a substantial role in the timing of the existing corridor signals. Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff from the Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) to provide copies of proffers to VDOT before a case comes before the Planning Commission or Board of Supervisors for public hearing when a developer proffers to provide a traffic signal.

Following discussion, Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and asked to amend it by directing DOT staff to work with VDOT to resolve the issue ahead of time, and this was accepted.

Following discussion, Supervisor McConnell moved a substitute motion that the Board direct staff to research this issue and return with options and the consequences. This substitute motion died for lack of a second.

Following discussion, with input from Barbara Byron, Director, Zoning Evaluation Division (ZED), DPZ, the question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

63.

Loveless Homes, Incorporated has submitted Rezoning Application RZ 1998-PR-051, which proposes the rezoning of approximately 3.77 acres from the R-1 District to the PDH-4 District. He moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES) to accept for concurrent and simultaneous processing a Subdivision Plat and any other plans or drawings as may be necessary in conjunction with Rezoning Application RZ 1998-PR-051 and Final Development Plan 1998-PR-051. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

64.

PULTE HOME CORPORATION (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that Pulte Home Corporation is in the process of subdividing approximately 24 acres along Miller Road.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES) to accept for concurrent and simultaneous processing a Subdivision Plat and any drawings as may be necessary for subdivision approval. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

65.

CHILD SAFETY SEAT AWARENESS WEEK (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly announced that February 14-21, 1999 is Child Safety Seat Awareness Week. He noted that based on checks held in the Metro region in the past two years, 95 percent of child seats are installed improperly. To raise awareness of this important issue, free inspections of child seats will be offered at various locations. Kip Killman Ford at Tysons Corner, in conjunction with local police, fire, and the Emergency Nurses Association, has arranged an all-day event on February 17, 1999 from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. for free child safety seat inspections. He noted that other sites are McLean Fire Station on February 14 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. and Landmark Shopping Center at Hecht's on February 16 from 10 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

He expressed his appreciation to all the organizations and companies involved, which he listed in his written Board Matter. He announced that there is an Operations Kids Hotline at 703-280-0559 for information about the program. He invited Board Members to stop by the sites to promote child safety.

66.

CONCURRENT PROCESSING DEVELOPMENTS IN THE FAIRFAX CENTER AREA (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey stated that several zoning actions are pending and by-right developments are planned in the Fairfax Center area which will result in the extension of Government Center Parkway, Monument Drive, and Ridge Top Road. These applications are being requested by a number of different entities, all of which are working together to provide coordinated development. Given the complexity of the issues that they are facing, Planning Commission hearings are being deferred from later this month until May. The parties are currently working on a number of infrastructure improvements that must be in place prior to the occupancy of any of the individual parcels. They have requested concurrent processing of the Site and Subdivision Plans with the zoning applications.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES) to accept for concurrent

processing the Site and Subdivision Plans associated with Rezoning Applications RZ 1998-SU-040, RZ 1998-SU-041, and RZ 1998-SU-025, Special Exception Application SE 98-Y-038, and Rezoning/Final Development Plan Application RZ/FDP 1998-SU-057.

Supervisor Frey stated that KSI services, Incorporated has filed a rezoning application for Rockland Village consisting of approximately 26.72 acres. The County owns fee simple title to the underlying right-of-way of Westmore Street and Dallas Street, which are proposed for abandonment as part of the rezoning application. To proceed with the application, the Board must authorize the inclusion of Westmore Street and Dallas Street in the proposed application.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of Westmore Street and Dallas Street to be included in the request for Rezoning Application RZ 1998-SU-050. He noted that 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 this application in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being out of the room.

68.

He stated that the Planning Commission hearing on the application was deferred to resolve some outstanding issues, but their decision is likely later this week. To avoid further delays, the applicant has requested the Board to schedule the public hearing.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to schedule the public hearing for Rezoning Application RZ 1998-SU-042 to be held before the Board on March 8, 1999 at 5 p.m. Supervisor Dix seconded the motion.

Following input from Catherine A. Chianese, Assistant to the County Executive, Supervisor Frey amended his motion to schedule the public hearing for March 8, 1999 at 3:30 p.m., and this was accepted.

As part of the process, Expo is changing the front elevation and wants to mount a sign that complements elements on the building façade. Although the proposed sign is not larger than is allowed by the ordinance, it has architectural features requiring a special exception.

Expo Design Center plans to open soon and hopes to have the sign in place for the opening. Because of concern over the time required to process the application, the applicant has requested expedited processing of the special exception application. Accordingly, on behalf of Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) to schedule the public hearings before the Planning Commission and the Board as soon as possible. He noted that this request had been coordinated with staff. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being out of the room.
