  • Request Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor McConnell, and Chairman Hanley to join Supervisor Dix in a review of the possibility that the Lorton Facility might be an appropriate location for the development of some additional outdoor recreation facilities, both practice and game facilities.
  • Review the “Adopt-A-Field” Program to determine if there is a more user friendly approach which would invite organizations to be more involved and take over the maintenance requirements of this program.
  • Examine the entire field maintenance issue, i.e. how is it done, is there a better way, does the County have a consistent program with the Park Authority facilities, School facilities, and other facilities.
  • Examine the issue of hiring people to be “field cops” -- how is the County addressing this particular matter and how can it be handled in a more sensitive manner.

INFORMATION ON THE TASK FORCE INITIATIVE TO REDUCE THE IMPACT OF GANGS AND YOUTH VIOLENCE ON COMMUNITIES IN THE COMMONWEALTH (Tape 5)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that over the last year, he has had the opportunity to work closely with Attorney General Mark Earley on his Task Force initiative to reduce the impact of gangs and youth violence on communities in the Commonwealth. He reported that a number of Task Force recommendations were recently approved by the General Assembly, including requirements for restitution and public service, closer coordination with the schools, and release of information about juveniles convicted of violent offenses.

The purpose of this gathering is to encourage Virginia's communities of faith to recruit volunteers to work with youth in existing programs and to consider establishing their own neighborhoods based on initiatives.

MADISON LANE SECTION 3 SUBDIVISION PLAT ERROR (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross explained that because of an engineering error on the Madison Lane Section 3 subdivision plat, certain units within the development do not meet the minimum yard requirements. A resubdivision of these lots will correct the error, but will result in a minor reduction in open space of about 253 square feet for the entire development. She stated that the Zoning Administrator has reviewed the subdivision plats and original rezoning application for the property and has indicated that this reduction will not cause the project to be in noncompliance with the approved zoning for the property, including the required open space. This action cannot be performed administratively.

To allow the approval and recordation of the revised plat for Section 3, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board refuse the offer of the open space for the Madison Lane subdivision, as provided for in paragraph four of Section 2-704 of the Zoning Ordinance. Supervisor Dix seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

65.

MIXING BOWL CONSTRUCTION (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman called the Board's attention to an article in The Washington Post on Saturday, April 3, 1999, that described the City of Falls Church's consideration of stiffer traffic penalties on streets that are used as cut-through routes. In relation to cut-through traffic resulting from the mixing bowl (the Springfield interchange at I-95/I-495/I-295) construction, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to examine the possibility of imposing stiffer penalties for speeding on the affected streets. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to update the Board of its action in 1997 regarding the change in State law allowing the imposition of stiffer penalties. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

66.

HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLE (HOV) LANES ON I-95 (Tape 6)

EXPEDITED PUBLIC HEARING DATE FOR DAVIS GENERAL STORE IN CLIFTON (Tape 6)

Supervisor McConnell stated that she has been contacted by the owners of the Davis General Store in Clifton who are awaiting final approval of their final site plan prior to submission of their special exception application in which they propose plant sales at this location. She said that staff informed her that newly-filed land use applications are being scheduled for September 1999 and beyond. She asserted that these public hearing dates pose a hardship on a business with seasonal sales.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board authorize staff to schedule an expedited public hearing date for the Davis General Store special exception application once this application is made. This action does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the County's consideration of this application in any way. This motion, the second to which was indistinguishable, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

68.

EXTENSION OF THE TIME PERIOD FOR FINAL SUBDIVISION PLAT APPROVAL FOR THE PROPERTY LOCATED AT 8447 LEE ALAN DRIVE (Tape 6)

As a Board condition of the approval, the applicants, the Shafers, had to obtain final subdivision plat approval within one year after Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) approval of a lot width variance, provided that the period could be extended by the Board of Supervisors.

Supervisor McConnell stated that the BZA approved the Shafers' variance application in November 1996 and on August 3, 1998, the Board of Supervisors extended the time for final subdivision plat approval to April 1, 1999, with the proviso that the plat had to be recorded by May 28, 1999. The Shafers have not yet obtained approval of their subdivision plat and have requested another extension of the time for final approval.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board extend the time period for final subdivision plat approval for the property at 8447 Lee Alan Drive to October 1, 1999, under the conditions approved by the Board when it approved Public Street Frontage Waiver Number 015948, provided the final subdivision plat is recorded on or before November 30, 1999.

Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to send a letter, under the Chairman's signature, to both Congressman Wolf and Congressman Moran requesting support of the senate language in the final conference committee action. Without objection, it was so ordered.
