programs of Reston Interfaith. This year a significant threshold was broken in the

fact that corporate sponsorship contributions provided $103,000 to be available to

41. WIEHLE AVENUE PROJECT (Tape 6)

 

Supervisor Dix stated that the Wiehle Avenue Project from the Fairfax County

Parkway to Reston Avenue has been advertised for construction bids, and roadway

construction is scheduled to start in June. A new four-lane divided roadway will be

constructed through heavily-wooded areas directly behind more than 35 homes. The

Shaker Woods Homeowners Association has requested that an eight foot high board-

on-board fence be constructed along both sides of the roadway to reduce the impact

of the roadway on these homes. Supervisor Dix further stated that on June 28, 1998,

the Board directed staff to examine the possibilities of constructing this fence and

determine if there were sufficient funds in the project to absorb the cost of the fence.

 

Supervisor Dix said that his office and the Department of Public Works and

Environmental Services (DPW&ES) has been working with the Shaker Woods

Homeowners Association to establish reasonable limits for the fencing and develop

cost estimates. The fence would be constructed only if permission is granted by all

property owners within each section where the fence would be located. The

property owners would be responsible for the long term maintenance of the fence.

Funds are available within the project to fund the estimated $175,000 necessary to

construct the fence.

 

 Therefore, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board authorize staff to include the eight

foot high board-on-board fence with the construction of the Wiehle Avenue project.

Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

42. "KIDS FOR KOSOVO" 5K FUN RUN (Tape 6)

the Reston, Herdon, and Vienna communities will be participating as well.

Registration tables will open at 7:15 a.m. at Forest Edge Elementary School, located

at 1501 Beacontree Lane in Reston. The run will begin at 8 a.m. Starting at Forest

Edge, the race will run through Ring Road, turning at Lake Fairfax Park and

returning to Forest Edge Elementary. After the run, the Forest Edge PTA will

present the Red Cross with all of the event's proceeds to assist with the humanitarian

effort in Kosovo.

 

Supervisor Dix further stated that the "Kids' for Kosovo" fun run has nothing to with

politics. Rather, it is a humanitarian effort that everything to do with helping

families and children that are in dire need. Supervisor Dix said he is touched to see

a group of caring students whose sense of compassion and awareness of current

events compels them to help people living so far away.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to:

 

Prepare a Certificate of Appreciation to recognize the students,

faculty, and staff from Forest Edge Elementary School for their

generous efforts.

 

Invite the appropriate persons to appear before the Board to receive

this Certificate.

 

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

43. RESTON/EAST PARK-AND-RIDE (Tape 6)

 

Supervisor Dix stated that on January 11, 1999, the Board supported his request for

staff to examine the possibility of expanding the Reston/East Park-and-Ride at

Wiehle Avenue and the potential for funding of a parking garage. On April 1, 1999,

the Board received a follow-up response indicating that the Board would have to

identify money because staff did not believe that existing sources of funding would

be eligible.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the

County Executive to examine the funding of the Federal Transit Administration

(FTA) grant that funded the Herndon/Monroe Park-and-Ride and Wiehle Avenue

Projects and attempt to determine whether given the scope of that project, there are

available balances remaining in those projects and initiate the inquiry to FTA to seek

approval to utilize those funds for this feasibility study. Without objection, it was so

ordered.

which has a curriculum that is developed by CISCO and provides the opportunity for

high school and college students to be involved in a curriculum to prepare them for

the job market in the technology industry.

future Board Meeting for a presentation about this exciting project in order that the

Board might attempt to determine how it would best fit in Fairfax County. Without

objection, it was so ordered.

 

45. TUTOR NET (Tape 6)

 

Supervisor Dix said that some Board Members are aware of a project called Tutor

Net that is taking place and expanding in some of the computer learning centers

around Fairfax County. Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board

Members so that they can be aware of the great work and this expanded partnership

of Tutor Net. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

46. BUS SERVICE EMERGENCY SCHEDULE (Tape 6)

 

Supervisor Dix said that recently he had an experience where during the recent snow

storm there was some concern about whether bus service in the Dulles Corridor

could easily shift to an emergency schedule and share the appropriate information

with bus riders as to what that emergency schedule would be.

 

To maintain confidence of the bus riders in the corridor, Supervisor Dix asked

unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to inquire of the providers under the

Dulles Express Bus Program as to what the mechanism is for shifting to an

emergency schedule and what the procedure will be for advising the public of what

that schedule will be. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

47. GENERAL ASSEMBLY HOUSE BILL HB 2139 (Tape 6)

 

Supervisor Dix raised the issue of the General Assembly House HB 2139 which

essentially removed the requirement of using metrics on all plans and State projects.

Supervisor Dix further said that based on this action that the General Assembly has

taken it is now appropriate for the Board to pursue similar action at the County level.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Gross replied that this had been asked of staff

earlier and a report is forthcoming.

 

48. CHARACTER COUNTS! (Tape 6)

 

Supervisor Dix said that he recently attended a National Character Counts!

Conference. Since 1994 Fairfax County has been one of the leaders of the Character

Counts! Movement. Therefore, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to

Board. The response to that inquiry is as follows:

 

The Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 3 (County Employees),

Section 3-7-10, specifies that the Board of Trustees for the Police

Retirement Officers Retirement System shall consist of five trustees.

Two are appointed by the Board; two are elected by the members of

the system, and the Director of Finance is the treasurer of the Board.

Currently neither of the appointed trustees are retired police officers

and the two trustees elected by the members of the system are both

active police officers.

 

Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a proposed

require that one of the two trustees appointed by the Board is from the retired Police

Department personnel. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by

unanimous vote.

regional study of the transportation needs of both counties in the Herndon/Sterling

contacted her about an area of their community where sidewalks were never

installed, causing school children to walk on the street to get to the bus stop and

adult pedestrians to walk in the street on their way to the Kings Park Shopping

Center.

 

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to review this request and

determine if installation of these missing segments of sidewalk in the Kings Park

community might be funded through the Braddock District share of moneys

approved in the Fiscal Year 2000 budget for Sidewalks/Trails. Chairman Hanley

seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Connolly said that on Saturday, April 17, 1999, Providence District held

a district-wide tree planting day. The tree planting effort was a tremendous success;

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board invite Renata Wade, who organized the

event, to appear before the Board to be recognized for her work on the 1999

area at Blake Lane Park. He said that once the Task Force has developed

recommended guidelines on issues from design and funding to puppy park rules its

report will be considered by a Park Authority committee and then be considered by

its Board. Once the recommendations are confirmed by the Park Authority, an

amendment to the Code of the County of Fairfax prohibiting owners from allowing

their dogs to run off-leash will need to be amended to allow this practice in these

designated areas.

 

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Attorney to work with

the Park Authority to review what amendments would be required before this pilot

puppy park could become operational. Supervisor Frey seconded the motion and it

carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor

Mendelsohn being out of the room.

 

58. PUBLIC INFORMATION ON SPRING TREATMENT OF WATER SUPPLY

(Tape 7)

inquiring about a strong chlorine odor and taste in their drinking water. Calls to the

Water Authority reveal that on March 21 they began an annual spring practice of

This will continue for two-and-a-half months and is a practice which has been

shown effective in the elimination of "low disinfection byproducts," which are

suspected carcinogens. The Water Authority has several recommendations, such as

boiling water or letting water stand in an open container in the refrigerator for 48

hours to allow the chlorine odor to dissipate.

 

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to work

with the Water Authority to develop press releases and public service

announcements to inform the public of this program, including recommendations for

making water more palatable during this period. Without objection, it was so

ordered.

 

59. AT&T SAFE SCHOOLS PROGRAM (Tape 7)

 

Supervisor Connolly said that AT&T will launch its new Safe Schools Program on

Thursday, April 29 at Parklawn Elementary when Superintendent of Schools,

Dr. Daniel Domenech will present mobile phones to schools throughout the area to

 afford teachers, administrators, students, and parents with the means to conduct

safety programs, communicate with crossing guards, playground supervisors, and

others responsible for the safety of the children. In the Providence District, Oakton

and Waples Mill Elementary Schools are recipients of this grant.

 

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board commend AT&T for

this important partnership with the schools by directing staff to prepare a Certificate

of Recognition and a letter of thanks from the Board. Without objection, it was so

ordered.

 

60. FEES FOR SCHOOL USE OF RECREATION CENTERS (Tape 7)

 

Supervisor Connolly stated that Marshall High School is planning festivities for

graduating seniors. The PTA has been told it will cost them $950 to use Oak Marr

Recreation Center for their graduation party. The PTA at Marshall has expressed

dismay at what seems to them an inequity in the sharing of facilities, pointing out

that the County holds numerous events in the schools for minimal or no fee and

believes that there should be a reciprocal agreement for school activities held in

County buildings.

 

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to review this issue and report

its findings to the Board with any appropriate recommendations. Supervisor Bulova

seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Connolly amended the motion to ask the Park

Authority to waive the fees for all of the various high schools who use the recreation

centers for the all night parties, and this was accepted.

 

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of

seven, supervisor Dix, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out

invited to play at the USA National Pavilion during the opening ceremonies of the

Paris Air Show and at a reception at the American Embassy in Paris in conjunction

with the show. Marshall is the only high school band in the country to receive this

coveted invitation this year and only the second in the history of the event.

Unfortunately, despite an active fundraising effort by the band parents and the

members themselves, many of the families are unable to afford the cost of the trip.

They are actively seeking business and private donations. The money is needed by

the end of this month and all donations would be greatly appreciated. Donors may

call PTA President, Sandy Perrin, at Marshall High School.

 

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite

the Marshall High School Symphonic Band to appear before the Board to play and

to be recognized for their achievements. Without objection, it was so ordered.

on the campus.

 

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to:

 

Schedule a public hearing immediately following the Planning

Commission public hearing.

 

Concurrently process the site plans with the building plans and

the Sheriff and the Department of Animal Control, is in the process of implementing

a new Public Safety Radio Communications System for the use of the

aforementioned County public safety agencies. This vital project includes eight

radio transmission sites throughout the County. Some of these sites require building

permits, inspections and other fee based services from various County agencies,

including the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES).

 

Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Connolly jointly moved that the Board

authorize the waiver of any and all fees associated with the required permits for any

implemented by DIT. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a

vote of eight, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

68. WAIVER OF TRANSFER STATION TIPPING FEE FOR BOY SCOUT

TROOP 893 (Tape 8)

 

Supervisor Frey said that on Saturday, April 24, Boy Scout Troop 893 held a flea

market. Because he had been unable to make a motion in advance of the event to

waive the refuse transfer station tipping fees, the County Executive and staff from

Department of Public Works and Environmental Services waived the fees contingent

upon the Board's approval. Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board

waive the transfer station fees for Boy Scout Troop 893's participation in the flea

market held April 24. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by

County staff have worked to develop an agreement to expedite the construction of

pieces of Stonecroft Boulevard. This agreement would save the County a significant

expense and time. To realize the goal, the public hearings for the applications must

73. COMMISSION ON AGING'S LETTER REGARDING WINTER WEATHER

-RELATED DIFFICULTIES (Tape 8)

 

Supervisor Gross stated that the Commission on Aging has circulated a letter

expressing concern with the number of elderly people experiencing difficulties

during the winter season. This past winter, which was relatively mild, still presented

serious obstacles to the older citizens in the form of ice storms and power outages.

The commission cites a number of concerns including icy sidewalks, snow

shoveling, power outages, inadequate food and heat, and difficulties getting home

care aides to people's homes.

 

Supervisor Gross said that the commission would like to be involved in a planning

process to address these concerns in time for next winter. Therefore, she moved that

the Board direct the County Executive to inventory any existing County policies and

procedures that would assist senior citizens and determine the appropriate vehicle

for the Commission on Aging to work with County staff to develop an action plan.

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

"Safe Boating and Courtesy Marine Examination Month" in Fairfax County. This

proclamation will foster awareness for boat safety and the free marine examination

programs offered through the Coast Guard Auxiliary.

 

Accordingly, jointly with Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell moved that the

Board direct staff to prepare a proclamation to be presented at the first Board

meeting in May 1999 declaring May 15 though June 15, 1999, as "Safe Boating

and Courtesy Marine Examination Month" in Fairfax County. Supervisor

Hospital Nurses' Day." The Fair Oaks Hospital will be conducting informational

by the Fair Oaks Hospital nursing staff to Fairfax County residents undergoing

treatment for a variety of illnesses.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to issue a

Carter Work Project 1999. She said that this was a true humanitarian effort on his

part in association with one of Habitat's corporate sponsors, Indianapolis Life

Insurance Company.

 

Supervisor Gross asked to amend the request to broaden its perspective by extending

the invitation to Deputy Fire Chief Mark Wheatley and others for their involvement

with Habit for Humanity locally and to discuss the difficulty of acquiring land for

these projects, and this was accepted.

 

Following discussion, with input from Jean V. White, Director, Office of Public

Affairs, Chairman Hanley noted that this recognition will be scheduled for a meeting

in June.

 

Without objection, the request, as amended, was so ordered.

Supervisor McConnell said that she had been contacted by the owners of the Davis

General Store in Clifton who are awaiting final approval on their final site plan prior

to submitting their special exception application in which they propose a U-Haul

rental at this location. She stated that staff had informed her that newly-filed land

use applications are being scheduled for September 1999 and beyond. She asserted

that such a schedule poses a hardship on businesses with seasonal rentals.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board authorize the staff to

schedule an expedited public hearing date for the Davis General Store special

exception application once this application is made. She noted that 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. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous

vote.

 78. SCHEDULING OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR REZONING APPLICATION

RZ 1998-SP-068 (Tape 8)

the scheduled April 28 Planning Commission public hearing to May 19 to work with

staff to refine the associated transportation improvements that will exceed the

County's standard required improvements.

 

In light of the applicant's willingness to work with County staff to resolve these

issues, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public

hearing to be held before the Board on May 24, 1999 for Rezoning Application

RZ 1998-SP-068. She noted that this date had been coordinated with staff, but that

she has a conflict with the date because she will be unable to attend the meeting on

this issue by the end of the day.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board took action on this matter. See Clerk's

Summary Item CL#83.)

He asserted that staffing is clearly inadequate for this program.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this

to be presented to the Board concerning the addition of another staff member to help

eliminate blight from the County. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which

carried by unanimous vote.

of the brochure and the simplicity of the steps outlined in it. Accordingly, he asked

unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to publicize the availability of this

short, but helpful, publication. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that he had requested information about

Y2K issues affecting the security of the District of Columbia's Department of

Corrections Facility in Lorton and he stated that he had not yet received a report

from staff.

 

Supervisor Hyland asked for an update on the County's internal efforts regarding the

Y2K problem. Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive, replied that a report was in

Following discussion, she amended her motion to direct staff to schedule a public

hearing to be held before the Board on June 7, 1999, for Rezoning Application

RZ 1998-SP-068. She noted that the motion does not relieve the applicant from

complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not

prejudice the staff, Planning Commission, or Board's consideration of this

application in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by

unanimous vote.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTER

 

91. EMBRY RUCKER SHELTER OF RESTON (Tape 9)

 

Supervisor Dix stated that the Embry Rucker Shelter of Reston is a homeless shelter

that is located adjacent to the Reston Regional Library on property which is owned

by Fairfax County. The shelter is currently planning a minor expansion. During the

preparation of plans for the project, it was identified that the existing facility was

split zoned between the R-1 and PRC Districts and the issue of which zoning

approvals would be required for the expansion was raised. A subsequent

determination by the Zoning Administrator found that the existing shelter is a public

use which is permitted by right in the R-1 District and is permitted in the PRC

District when depicted on an approved development plan. However, because the

existing shelter is not depicted on the approved development plan and the proposed

expansion is to be located entirely on land located within the PRC zoned portion of

the site, it was determined that a Development Plan Amendment application must be

approved by the Board.

 

WHEREAS, there is a public interest to be served by amending the approved

development plan for this portion of Reston, and

 

WHEREAS, the most economical means of accomplishing this development

plan amendment is to process it expeditiously and concurrently with the Site Plan,

and

 

WHEREAS, the public necessity, convenience, general welfare and good zoning

practice require such action,

 

THEREFORE, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to:

 

Initiate a Board's Own Motion Development Plan Amendment

application for the Embry Rucker Shelter to permit the proposed

minor expansion.

 

Expeditiously schedule and concurrently review the Site Plan for this

expansion.

 

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.
