Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct the County Executive to review the training provided for the 911 operators and report his findings at the June 7 meeting with a recommendation concerning certification of operators in Emergency Medical Dispatch. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

PROPOSAL TO HARDEN THE SHOULDERS OF THE DULLES CONNECTOR AT THE WEST FALLS CHURCH METRO STATION (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley said that it is her understanding that the proposal to harden the shoulders of the Dulles Connector at the West Falls Church Metro Station has been put in the 6-Year Plan with funds to be allocated using Commonwealth Transportation Board Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funds.

Chairman Hanley said that the funding will be used from CMAQ funds in Fiscal Year (FY) 2001 and the project will not begin until that time. She questioned whether that was the intent of the legislature when it included language in the FY 2000 Budget.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board express its concern about the delay during the next round of hearings prior to final allocations. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

 

41.

NEED FOR TIMELY TRANSPORTATION PROJECT UPDATES (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley said that the Commonwealth Transportation Board released its pre-allocation figures on Thursday, May 20, 1999.

Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to analyze all road projects and report on the following:

  • The year when these projects were first placed on the 6-year plan and what the bid advertisement date was at that time.

  • What the current advertisement date is for each project.

Chairman Hanley noted that this will provide an opportunity to determine where these projects are in the timeline and what has happened to the projected schedule. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley pointed out that the Department of Transportation staff previously prepared monthly updates on Fairfax County projects, and then quarterly reports that were available in the Board package. Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to prepare an update on construction projects at least on a twice-yearly basis so that there is more up-to-date information.

Chairman Hanley said that she and Supervisor McConnell would be interested in receiving an update on the status of the Route 123 projects from Burke Lake Road to Lee Chapel Road and from Lee Chapel Road to the Occoquan River. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

42.

SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS (SRO) PROGRAM (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley referred to the County Executive for review a letter from Robert E. Frye, Chairman, Fairfax County School Board, regarding the need for SROs in alternative high schools.

43.

SCHOOL BOND REFERENDUM (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to review the resolution adopted by the Fairfax County School Board requesting the Board of Supervisors to approve and take action to place on the ballot for November 2, 1999, a School Bond Referendum in the amount of $297,205,000. Without objection, it was so ordered.

44.

US ROUTE 1 INTERCHANGE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE WOODROW WILSON BRIDGE PROJECT (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley distributed to Board Members a letter that she had received from Shirley J. Ybarra, Secretary of Transportation, Commonwealth of Virginia,

regarding the Board's concerns with the US Route 1 interchange in conjunction with the Woodrow Wilson Bridge project.

45.

TRICARE LEGISLATION (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley distributed to Board Members a letter that she had received from Congressman Thomas M. Davis regarding TRICARE legislation.

46.

THE IMPORTANCE OF WATER CONSERVATION (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley said that a front page article in the Washington Post dated May 20, 1999, calls attention to the area's drought and particularly the Potomac River's low flow.

Chairman Hanley said that on the East Coast, there is a tendency to take an abundant water supply for granted, but drinking water resources are limited. The Water Authority maintains an excellent website with information for the consumer on how to conserve water, both indoors and outdoors. The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission also maintains a site with valuable information.

Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to contact Fred Morin, Chairman of the Water Authority, to request:

  • A response from the Water Authority on what plans are in place to relay conservation information to their consumers should there be a drought that extends through the summer.

  • Information on steps that the Water Authority is taking to protect the water quality in the Occoquan Basin during low flow conditions and what the projections are for overall water supply during low flow periods in the Potomac River.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley said that in 1993, the Board requested that staff work with water providers in the region, regional governments, and the US Army Corp of Engineers to find ways to establish and improve procedures for water emergencies occurring in the region. Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments convened a "water summit" and published a Regional Water Supply Emergency Plan which the Board adopted in 1995. That Plan has had minimal updates. Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board ask MWCOG and the ICPRB to consider formation of another regional task force and that the Emergency Plan be updated with particular attention to water conservation. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

 

 

 

47.

RESTON FESTIVAL (Tape 4)

Supervisor Dix announced that this past weekend the Reston Festival was held at Lake Anne. He asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the steering committee and organizers of the Reston Festival to appear before the Board to be recognized for their efforts. Without objection, it was so ordered.

48.

REZONING APPLICATION 1999-HM-020 (Tape 4)

Supervisor Dix said that Mr. Arthur Cohen has submitted Rezoning Application RZ 1999-HM-020 requesting that a 2.18 acre parcel be rezoned from the R-1 District to the R-3 District, to permit the development of three lots. This property is located on Blue Road adjacent to the Wolf Trap Elementary School, and one of the lots associated with this application contained a dwelling that was in a blighted condition for many years, until Mr. Cohen purchased the property. He has since razed that dwelling and is proposing to have a new home constructed on that lot.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board:

  • Direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on Rezoning Application 1999-HM-020 on August 2, 1999.

  • Authorize staff to accept the Subdivision Plan for this proposed development for concurrent processing with the rezoning request.

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 Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

49.

TYSONS VILLAGE (Tape 4)

Supervisor Dix said that he has been asked to assist with a site plan revision related to the Tysons Village development on the former Ashgrove property in the Tysons Corner area. The approved development plan included twenty-five Affordable Dwelling Units (ADUs). Since the approval of the development plan and rezoning application, the County has adopted revisions to the ADU Ordinance resulting in this case, in a lesser number of ADU units being required. This was anticipated by the proffers accepted by the Board with the approval of Rezoning Application RZ 96-H-022, which allow the ADU requirements for the Tysons Village to be adjusted in accordance with sliding scale that is now part of the ADU Ordinance.

As part of reducing the number of ADU's, the developer of Tysons Village is proposing to incorporate the ADU's in a townhouse building with other market units. This results in an increase in the size of the ADU's. However, the developer had previously had the record plat for this portion of the site approved, and with the reconfiguration of the building, a small amount of land recorded as homeowner open space is proposed to become part of the new larger lots. The amount of land involved is 3,585 square feet. He pointed out that 16.88 acres of open space has been provided in Tysons Village, almost four more acres than the 12.93 acres shown on the proffered plan.

However, since the proposed larger lots would use land already recorded as homeowners' open space, pursuant to the provisions of the Zoning Ordinance, common open space cannot be disposed of without first offering to dedicate that land to the County. Given that the area of land is less than 3,600 square feet, and is bounded by other homeowner association land, there is not a County interest in this property. The proposed reconfiguration of the lots has been reviewed by staff, who found that proposed minor change in the layout to be in conformance with the proffered plan.

Therefore, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board decline to accept the dedication of the 3,600 square feet of land in Section II of Tysons Village. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

50.

CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR MRS. ALICIA PAYNE (Tape 4)

Supervisor Dix said that Alicia Payne, a long time resident of Northern Virginia, Fairfax County, and the Hunter Mill District, will be moving from the area at the end of June. Since 1970, Mrs. Payne has lived on an 8-acre parcel on Lawyers Road, known as Robaleed, on which she raised and boarded horses. The property was recently sold and Mrs. Payne will be moving to a new home at Lake of the Woods.

Supervisor Dix referred to his written Board Matter and noted Mrs. Payne's involvement with many activities in the County for almost 25 years.

Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mrs. Payne to appear before the Board on June 7, 1999, to receive a Certificate of Appreciation for her many years of service to the residents of Fairfax County and to wish her well in her future endeavors. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

51.

CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION TO MICHAEL SCHEURER, DIRECTOR, FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT DIVISION, DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT (HCD) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Dix announced that Michael Scheurer, Director, Financial Management Division, HCD has resigned and he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Scheurer to appear before the Board to receive a Certificate of Appreciation for his work. Without objection, it was so ordered.

PROPOSAL TO HONOR MS. BETTY COOKE, A LONGTIME RESIDENT OF MCLEAN, BY NAMING A BRIDGE IN HER HONOR (Tape 4)

On behalf of Chairman Hanley and himself, Supervisor Mendelsohn said that he had been approached by a representative of the various communities along Georgetown Pike in the McLean/Great Falls area that wish to publicly honor a beloved member of their community who recently passed away.

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the constituents wish to honor Ms. Betty Cooke, a longtime resident of McLean, by naming a bridge in her honor. Ms. Cooke was an artist and an historian who chronicled a widely-read and highly-respected history of Georgetown Pike. The bridge which the community would like to name in her honor is located at the intersection of Swinks Mill Road and Georgetown Pike, a short distance from Ms. Cooke's family home.

Supervisor Mendelsohn noted that the Code of Virginia provides a mechanism for conferring the type of honor requested in memory of Ms. Cooke. Under Section 33.1-250 of the Code, a bridge may be named after a citizen upon resolution by the governing body of the jurisdiction where that bridge is located. He added that State Senator Janet Howell is encouraging this effort to honor the memory of Ms. Cooke.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board send a letter to the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) requesting that the CTB direct the Virginia Department of Transportation to erect signs at the bridge over Scott's Run designating the bridge as Betty Cooke Memorial Bridge and recognizing Ms. Cooke as an important civic leader and contributor to the character of the McLean community and the Dranesville District. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

53.

NEW GREAT FALLS LIBRARY (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced an exciting event that took place in Great Falls over the weekend. He said that ground was broken for the long-awaited construction of the new Great Falls Library. Construction will take approximately one year, and the library should be ready for use in the summer of 2000.

Supervisor Mendelsohn expressed his appreciation to Board Members for their support in this effort.

54.

MIDDLE SCHOOL AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that last year the Board authorized $112,000 for Middle School After School Programs. The pilot programs for that project have already been done at all middle schools in the system, and have proven to be very successful. This after school program has been tailored in the community by the schools and the Safe Community Coalitions to meet the needs of each individual community. The Board recently authorized funding for a second year of the program.

Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the various middle school programs and from the Partnership for Youth to appear before the Board in June to receive recognition for their accomplishments and to share some of their success stories with the Board. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

55.

WAIVER OF FEES ASSOCIATED WITH THE INSTALLATION OF THE PROPOSED HERNDON HIGH SCHOOL SIGN (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn noted that it is a tradition at Herndon High School for the graduating senior class to give a gift to the school. This year's class is proposing to provide a free-standing ground-mounted sign identifying Herndon High School.

To facilitate this generous offer by a not-for-profit group to improve the community, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board waive the building permit fees and any other fees associated with the installation of this sign. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

56.

HERNDON FESTIVAL (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that on June 3-6, 1999, the Town of Herndon will hold the Herndon Festival.

He invited Board Members and the public to attend this best festival. He noted that Herndon attracts over 75,000 people each year for this event.

57.

MCLEAN COMMUNITY CENTER GOVERNING BOARD (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that on May 15, 1999, the citizens of Small District #1 held an election to replace three members of the McLean Community Center Governing Board.

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced the results of the 1999 election and moved that the Board confirm the appointment of the following individuals:

Adult Members Youth Members

Janet Auerbach Langley Area: Andrea Jacobs

Caroline Pickens McLean Area: Ryan Bennett

Dorothy Hassan

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

WASHINGTON METROPOLITAN AREA (WMATA) TRANSIT ASSOCIATION SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 82-P-032-3 (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said that WMATA recently submitted Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 82-P-032-3 to allow construction of a parking deck over existing surface parking in the southwest quadrant of the Vienna/Fairfax/GMU Metro site, referred by Tax Map 48-1((1))90. The Metro site presently has a shortage of approximately 1500 parking spaces per day and the number is expected to grow. The proposed parking deck will provide 2300 spaces and WYATT hopes to break ground in late October. In an effort to quickly address the parking shortage, WMATA has requested concurrent processing for the special exception and public facility applications.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to concurrently process the site plans with the building plans and permits for the above-referenced applications. This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

59.

CONSOLIDATION OF SCHOOL/COUNTY MEDICAL FORMS (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said it has come to his attention that it is difficult to fill out the required forms to ensure his child could be administered medication while at school and during the SACC program before and after school. In investigating the matter, his office discovered that schools require separate forms for each medication administered. In addition, the SACC program, which is run by the Office for Children, has forms of its own. The cumbersome process which busy parents must go through and the burden for school and County personnel to print, file, and store the various forms indicate that consolidating the various medication forms would be in order.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Office for Children to work with Dr. Moscoso, Representative of the Schools on the Fairfax Medical Society Liaison Committee, with a goal of finalizing a form acceptable to both the County and the Schools in time for the opening of school in September. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

60.

AUTHORIZATION OF EXECUTION OF CONTRACT FOR NUTLEY STREET (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said that as part of the Capital Improvement Program, the Board approved funding for the improvement of Nutley Street between Arlington Boulevard and Lee Highway in preparation for its acceptance into the State road system. The project is currently being advertised for construction, with bids scheduled to open tomorrow. Current Policy requires that the County Executive obtain Board authorization to award construction contracts in excess of $100,000. The May 25 bid opening will not allow sufficient time to include this approval item in the June 7 Board package. The next meeting is June 28. The contract duration is 170 calendar days. It is imperative to start construction as soon as possible so it can be completed before another winter season arrives.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the County Executive to award this contract subject to the following:

  • Execution of the contract is in conformance with the Fairfax County Purchasing Resolution.

  • If the bid exceeds the estimate by 10 percent or more, the County Executive will discuss this with the Providence District Supervisor and the Chairman of the Board before taking further action.

  • The Board will receive a copy of the standard information and staff report for the awarded contract.

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

61.

FEE WAIVER FOR ALL-NIGHT ALCOHOL-FREE PROM PARTIES (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly reminded Board Members that at the last Board meeting, he expressed concern that the Marshall PTA, which is sponsoring an all-night celebration for its senior class was being charged $960 for rental fees at Oak Marr Recreation Center. The Board reaffirmed its support to waive this fee and the party was held Friday night. In the interim, however, it has been brought to his attention that, because this all-night celebration is an all night after-prom party, rather than an all-night after-graduation party, it is not covered by the Board's Policy. Apparently, all-night prom parties are not as prevalent, but are being encouraged by community coalitions, PTA's, and other groups who watch out for the safety of young people.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that:

  • Funding for the school-sponsored, all-night, alcohol-free after-prom parties be placed on the consideration list for Carryover.

  • The Board request the Park Authority to report with a list of schools which have held such parties this year and their cost. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

MARSHALL ACADEMY AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY TEAM TAKES HONORS (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said 14 Marshall Academy automotive technology students have taken honors in the Seventh Annual "Sun" Day Challenge. The students entered two cars - a 1988 circle-track Ford Mustang and a 1993 street-approved Geo Metro - which the students had modified to run on electricity instead of gasoline.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite members of the Marshall Academy automotive team, their teacher and sponsors to appear before the Board to be recognized for their achievement. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

63.

ANNUAL PLAN REVIEW (APR) ITEM APR 98-II-5V (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Board approved APR 98-II-5V on December 7, 1998, which allowed development of 40 single family homes at a density of 4-6 dwelling units per acre du/ac. Batal Builders is the contract purchaser of an assemblage of properties totaling approximately 8.68 acres located on Amanda Place. Batal Builders is prepared to submit an application to rezone the properties from R-1 District to R-5 District to allow development at 4.6 du/ac. To submit their application, Batal Builders needs authorization from the Board to vacate .6041 acres of right-of-way.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of .6041 acres of right-of-way adjacent to tax map parcels 49-1((1))32, 32A, 33, 34, 39, 40, 40A, and 41 within the land area of the Batal Builders/Amanda, LC rezoning application. This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

64.

MORGAN CHASE REZONING/FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN RZ/FDP 1998-PR-026 (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said Morgan Chase has submitted an application to rezone 12.7 acres from the R-1 District to the PDH-4 District to allow development of 38 single family detached homes.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to concurrently process any subdivision or site plans for Rezoning/Final Development Plan RZ/FDP 1998-PR-026. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

65.

SARAH LANE, LLC AND CENTEX HOMES (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said that Sarah Lane, LLC and Centex Homes have filed a rezoning application which includes portions of certain right-of-way known as Sarah Lane, Oak Avenue, Garrett Avenue, and A Street in which the County's interest is proposed to be vacated and/or abandoned. Because of the County's interest in the

right-of-way, the applicants must obtain consent from the Board to file the application.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of portions of Sarah Lane, Oak Avenue, Garret Avenue, and A Street in the application for rezoning filed by Sarah Lane, LLC and Centex homes. This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

66.

HISTORIC MARKER PROGRAM (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that the Fairfax County History Commission has initiated a local historic marker program to highlight the unparalleled history and supplement the existing State marker program. Two of the first sites selected for this designation are in the Mason District, and several issues have been raised, related both to the individual sites and to the program in general.

Supervisor Gross said that one site is at the entrance to the Virginia Railway Express (VRE) parking lot along Hechinger Drive. The original Springfield Railroad Station, at the exact location of the current VRE station, witnessed two Civil War skirmishes and was the precursor of the area now known as Springfield. The History Commission is requesting the Board's permission to place a marker there, on land owned by the Board.

The second marker commemorates the site of Price's Ordinary at Braddock and Backlick Roads, where in 1787, Fairfax County freeholders unanimously expressed approval of the proposed federal Constitution. The site is on private property, and the owner, Senator Richard Saslaw, has expressed a willingness to allow installation of the marker, and has even offered to add landscaping around the sign.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board:

  • Request the Chairman to write a letter to the History Commission, granting permission to place a historic marker on the site on Hechinger Drive on County-owned property.

  • Direct the County Executive to determine, by the next Board meeting:

  • What agreements need to be reached with a property owner to place a historic marker on private property.

  • Who in the County should receive the signs from the manufacturer.

  • What agency will be responsible for the installation of the markers.

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

67.

ROUTE 50 BUS SHELTER RELOCATION (Tape 5)

Noting that this item is a joint matter with Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Gross said that Route 50 is the dividing line between Mason and Providence Districts, and it is the site of an increasing public safety hazard. During the past decade 44 pedestrians have been struck along a one-half mile stretch of Route 50 in the vicinity of Graham Road. The area is home to a number of apartments, commercial establishments, and the Graham Road Elementary School.

Supervisor Gross said that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has finally agreed to alleviate this situation by implementing the following steps to improve pedestrian access and safety on Route 50:

  • Relocation of the current crosswalk 275 feet west of its current location.

  • Installation of a pedestrian-activated traffic signal.

  • Closure of the median break on the north side of Route 50.

  • Installation of fencing to channel pedestrians to the crosswalk.

However, one issue remains which falls to the County's responsibility. To make this plan work, Fairfax County must relocate an existing County bus shelter on the Mason District side to the new crosswalk and pedestrian signal. The implementation of the new traffic signal is imminent, making this remaining issue a top priority.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to work with VDOT to relocate this bus shelter to its new location. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

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

68.

LITTLE RIVER TURNPIKE AND BRADDOCK ROAD INTERSECTION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that she recently received a letter from the Fairland Towns Homeowners Association concerning the intersection of Little River Turnpike and Braddock Road in Annandale. Fairland Towns is located adjacent to this intersection, which has been the site of a number of traffic accidents. Within the past two years, four of these accidents have caused property damage to the association.

Supervisor Gross stated that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has installed reflecting signage at the intersection. However, within a week of installation, a motorist knocked down one of the signs. The homeowners association has some ideas and suggestions on how to alleviate this dangerous situation.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff from the Department of Transportation to:

  • Review this letter and work with VDOT to implement additional measures.

  • Add this site to the list of intersections that will be reviewed for possible inclusion in the photo red light monitoring system.

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

69.

NO PARKING ON WILLIAMS LANE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that Williams Lane is a narrow, unpaved, County-maintained road in Baileys Crossroads. Unfortunately, because this little-used road is home to many auto repair businesses, the road itself is regularly used as a parking lot to store vehicles waiting for service. Efforts to clean up this area have met with some success, but Williams Lane does not remain clear of cars for very long in the absence of "No Parking" signs.

Accordingly, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the County Executive to work with the Virginia Department of Transportation to determine the most expeditious way to post "No Parking" signs on both sides of Williams Lane. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Dix being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

70.

BAILEYS DAY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross noted that yesterday, May 23, was Baileys Day, a well-attended community event. She presented Chairman Hanley with a Baileys Crossroads T-shirt.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board discussed Baileys Day door prizes. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#77.)

71.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF HOME BUILDERS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that the National Association of Home Builders recently published a report entitled "Smart Growth: Building Better Places to Live, Work and Play." She announced that one of the twenty projects nationwide that was chosen to be highlighted was Madison Place in Mason District. She circulated copies of the article that speaks to challenges and rewards of infill projects, and how they can contribute to revitalization.

72.

BOARD'S OWN MOTION TO REZONE TWO PARCELS LOCATED ALONG THE SOUTHERN RAILROAD TRACKS NEAR I-495 (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that the Curtis family owns two contiguous parcels of land located along the Southern Railroad tracks just south of I-495 in Lee District. The two parcels are zoned I-6 and I-3, with the Curtis lumberyard operating as a by-right use on the larger I-6 parcel. These properties represent a substantial portion of a small industrial island surrounded by low density, stable residential neighborhoods.

Supervisor Kauffman noted that in an effort to be a good neighbor, the Curtis family has improved the property with landscaping. As an extension of that good faith, family members have been in discussion with the local civic association and have agreed to a "downzoning" of the larger parcel to I-5 with a companion rezoning of the smaller parcel to I-5 as well. They have agreed to proffer out certain industrial uses that could have negative impacts on the surrounding neighborhoods as a result of the rezoning action.

Supervisor Kauffman moved:

Whereas, there is a public interest to be served by restricting the type and intensity of industrial uses on this property and thereby furthering the stabilization of the surrounding communities; and

Whereas, the most economical means of accomplishing this purpose is by concurrently rezoning the two parcels; and

Whereas, the public necessity, convenience, general welfare, and good zoning practice require consideration of such action;

Therefore, that the Board of Supervisors initiate a Board's Own Motion to rezone these two parcels described as Tax Map Parcels 80-1 ((1)) 3 and 5 and that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing on this rezoning application in October 1999.

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Following discussion regarding proffer questions, with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent to defer action on this item until later in the day. Without objection, it was so ordered.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board took action on this item. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#104.)

73.

BUCKMAN ROAD COMMUNITY CENTER NEIGHBORHOOD CLEAN UP DAY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman announced that the Buckman Road Community Center is sponsoring a neighborhood clean-up day on June 26. The area to be cleaned is along the Little Hunting Creek and is located behind the Buckman Road apartment complex.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board:

  • Direct the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES), Solid Waste and Recycling Division, to waive the fees associated with picking up any debris removed from the floodplain during this clean-up day.

  • Request John Childress, area superintendent for DPW&ES, to coordinate with Patricia Cooper of the Buckman Road Community Center on the specifications of the debris pick up.

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Noting that he has a similar effort that occurs in his district, Supervisor Hyland suggested that future clean-up dates be coordinated to occur on the same day.

The question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

74.

SCHEDULING THE PUBLIC HEARING FOR REZONING/FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN APPLICATION RZ/FDP 98-L-006A-01 (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that the applicant in Rezoning/Final Development Plan Application RZ/FDP 98-006A-01, KSI Services, Incorporated, has been working with planning staff to resolve multiple issues regarding plans to develop the Hydro-Conduit Pipe Plant property in the Lee District. The plan calls for a mixed use of residential, hotel, and offices. The Planning Commission public hearing was recently deferred until July 14.

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on Rezoning/Final Development Plan Application RZ/FDP 98-L-006A-01 on July 26, 1999. He noted that this motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on this application, nor does this motion relieve the applicant of compliance with all applicable ordinances, regulations, or standards, in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

75.

RECOGNITION OF FAIRFAX CABLE ACCESS CORPORATION'S CHANNEL 10 SPORTS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova stated that serving Northern Virginia with the best in public access television, Fairfax Cable Access Corporation's Channel 10 Sports for the past 10 years has covered local high school sporting events. She recognized the efforts of the following volunteers who bring this coverage of high school sports:

Producers: Brian Nern

Lee Bailey

REVISION TO ACTION APPROVED ON MAY 10, 1999, REGARDING A QUITCLAIM DEED CONVEYING PARCELS TO THE PARK AUTHORITY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova reminded the Board that at its meeting on May 10, 1999, she had moved an amendment to the form of quitclaim deed that was to convey a number of parcels to the Fairfax County Park Authority. The amendment added the word "telecommunications or" on the second line of the second paragraph of the form of quitclaim deed. The purpose of that amendment was to permit the County or its assigns to allow telecommunications facilities to be placed on the land to be conveyed without the approval of the Park Authority. The Board adopted the amendment.

Supervisor Bulova stated that she has been informed by the County Attorney that to accomplish her purpose, an amendment to the first paragraph of page two of the form of quitclaim deed is also required. Accordingly, she moved that the Board amend the form of quitclaim deed by inserting in the first paragraph of page two the following language: on line two, after public utilities or, "telecommunications or" and on line five, after electric, "telecommunication service,." Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Dix and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

RETURN OF THE CANKERWORM (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that one year ago he presented a request for Board action to help chemically control the cankerworm and other pests in the County through a program similar to that used for the gypsy moth. While the Environmental Committee recommended an integrated pest management program, the motion to follow through with the recommendation was defeated. He briefly outlined the history of the issue, which is contained in the written Board Matter as distributed to the Board.

In the face of a worsening cankerworm crisis resulting in severe defoliation of the tree canopy, Supervisor Hyland asked the Board to revisit the issue. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct the Legislative Committee to place high on its agenda consideration of amending existing legislation to permit the County to include other forest pest insects into the Specific Service District to Control Gypsy Moth Infestations. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

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

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to re-circulate copies of the report that outlined all methods to combat this pest when this item appears on the agenda for the Legislative Committee. Without objection, it was so ordered.

THROUGH TRUCK RESTRICTION REQUEST FOR WHERNSIDE STREET (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland called to the Board attention letters he had received from both Linda Seaton, president of the Southgate Woods Homeowners Association, and the Worthington Woods Homeowners Association. On behalf of their communities, they have requested the Board's assistance in restricting trucks from using Whernside Street as a cut through route. Richmond Highway is an easy alternate roadway for trucks to use. Whernside Street serves two high density townhouse complexes and is qualified for traffic calming initiatives.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to:

  • Review the homeowner associations' requests to restrict through truck traffic from using Whernside Street.

  • Return with recommendations by June 29, 1999.

  • Schedule a public hearing on the issue in July 1999.

Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley noted that because the authority to grant such an action is not entirely within the realm of the County, the timetable could slip.

The question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

82.

REQUEST FOR EXPEDITED AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR MOUNT VEE ZONING AND SITE PLAN APPLICATIONS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland stated that Mount Vee, LLC has submitted an application to amend a previously approved final development plan for this site located on the south side of Richmond Highway and east of Central Avenue. At the time of the previous approval, this development was highlighted as an important component of the Richmond Highway revitalization effort. The development has been fully approved and bonded and site development is currently underway. Approximately 25 townhouses have already been sold. The applicant has submitted modifications

to both the final development plan and the site plan to allow flexibility in providing garages with a portion of the residential units.

As development for this revitalization project is already underway, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the processing and scheduling of the amended final development plan application and concurrently process the associated revised site plan. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

83.

SUPPORT FOR PLACING THE UNITED STATES (US) NATIONAL ARMY MUSEUM AT FORT BELVOIR (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland reported that last week Senator Strom Thurmond introduced a bill on the US Senate floor asking that the US National Army Museum be located at Fort Belvoir. The Senate bill provides a host of excellent reasons why Fort Belvoir would be the logical choice for this national gem. Last Friday, Congressman Jim Moran introduced a companion bill in Congress.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to communicate to the Northern Virginia Delegation, including Senators Robb and Warner, its suport for locating the US National Army Museum at Fort Belvoir and requesting that they collectively work to bring the museum to Fort Belvoir and the historic cornerstone of the US where resides the home of the first President, General George Washington.
