VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION'S (VDOT) SIX YEAR PLAN (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that he has received a copy of a letter from Delegate Jim Scott to VDOT Commissioner David Gehr that brings to light several changes in the status of widening Route 29 as outlined in different iterations of VDOT's Six Year Improvement Plan. Accompanying documentation attests to the fact that this is the third consecutive Six Year Plan that defers funding for this project.

In addition, the cost of the project has increased by almost 50 percent in the last year as shown in the Six Year Plan, and the balance to complete required for the project has increased almost threefold. from $538,000 to $1.501 million.

The continued delay of this project makes it increasingly difficult for elected officials to keep citizens adequately informed of the status of projects and to time development to coincide with infrastructure improvements. It also convinces citizens that the process is entirely unreliable.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Transportation to contact Commissioner Gehr to obtain answers to the questions raised by Delegate Scott's letter and to receive a full explanation of plan changes that have resulted in the repeated delay of this project. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

WYNFIELD BUS STOP (Tape 8)

Supervisor Gross stated that the Wynfield Civic Association is asking for assistance concerning safety along Columbia Pike in front of its subdivision. This stretch of Columbia Pike has been the site of two fatal accidents involving pedestrians -- both of whom were residents of Wynfield. She noted that part of the problem is the inadequacy of the bus stop on westbound Columbia Pike where there is no bus pad or sidewalk at a steep embankment. There also is no crosswalk to allow for a safe pedestrian crossing.

To ensure the safety of motorists, Metrobus riders, and pedestrians, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to:

  • Identify possible funding sources, which could be used in this instance when public safety is at risk, for construction of a bus pad or other refuge on westbound Columbia Pike across from Wynnwood Drive.

  • Request the Virginia Department of Transportation to paint a crosswalk and add signage at the appropriate location.

  • Conduct a speed survey to determine if there is a need to lower the speed limit along this stretch of Columbia Pike.

Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide an update on the already-approved bus pads. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

WILDLIFE UPDATE (Tape 8)

INFO

Supervisor Gross called attention to a report entitled Wildlife Update produced by Wildlife Biologist Earl L. Hodnett, which she had circulated. She noted that the report is the result of discussions with Mr. Hodnett and meetings with the Lake Barcroft community and the Park Authority initially regarding the Canada goose situation. She noted that Lake Barcroft is using border collies to herd geese at the lake, but the geese generally just move to another spot. She commended the report to the Board and noted that other animal species are also addressed.

A brief discussion followed.

82.

ACCESS TO HEALTH DEPARTMENT FOOD SERVICE INSPECTION RESULTS (Tape 8)

Supervisor McConnell stated that it was recently brought to her attention that the procedure for obtaining the results of recent Health Department food service inspections is both costly and difficult. Following the initial request, a concerned citizen must complete a written application for the Health Department to conduct an inquiry. The citizen is then charged at a rate of $32 per hour for the search and reply. Inquiry costs include retrieval, copy, supervisor review, and mail out of the inspection results, at an average cost of approximately $10 per inquiry. Inquiries into the results of Health Department food service inspections are typically completed within three to five days following the submission of the written request.

Supervisor McConnell asserted that as a matter of public safety, the results of Health Department inspections should be easily accessible to all citizens of the County. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct the County Executive to conduct a study into the possibility of posting on the Internet the results of the Health Department's most recent health inspection of food service establishments, where they can be viewed for free by interested citizens. She further moved that the study examine the feasibility of a requirement of all food service establishments in the County to post the results of the most recent Health Department inspection. Supervisor Frey seconded the motion.

Following a brief discussion, the question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

REQUEST FOR MULTI-WAY STOP SIGN AT THE INTERSECTION OF BARNACK DRIVE AND ELTON DRIVE IN WEST SPRINGFIELD VILLAGE (Tape 8)

Mr. Kriebel is concerned with the safety of children traveling to and from a nearby swimming pool and believes the stop signs would be beneficial in alleviating the safety risk. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct staff to submit this intersection to the Virginia Department of Transportation for review and consideration for multi-way stop signs. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion assuming that the process regarding petitions is followed. The question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

85.

FEE WAIVER REQUEST FOR SITE PLAN AND PLAN WAIVERS ASSOCIATED WITH THE NORTHERN VIRGINIA THERAPEUTIC RIDING ASSOCIATION (Tape 8)

Supervisor McConnell reminded the Board that the Board of Zoning Appeals approved a special use permit for the Therapeutic Riding Association's location at 10804 Henderson Road. The association's board of governors is prepared to submit the appropriate site plans and has requested consideration for a waiver of fees associated with this location's site plan and plan waivers. She noted that this non-profit organization provides tremendous recreation opportunities for children with disabilities. This fee waiver will allow this organization to focus its resources exclusively on its operational costs.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board waive any and all fees associated with the site plans and related plan waiver request regarding the Northern Virginia Therapeutic Riding Association's location at 10804 Henderson Road. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion.

Following input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

86.

SCHEDULING OF THE PUBLIC HEARING FOR REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1998-SP-062 (Tape 8)

Supervisor McConnell stated that the applicant for Rezoning Application RZ 1998-SP-062 for property located at the intersection of Hooes and Beechwood Drive has contacted her office to request the Board's consideration to schedule a Board public hearing date before November 2. The case has been deferred on several occasions and is currently scheduled to be heard by the Planning Commission on October 7. With contractual commitments associated with this applicant's parcel assemblage expiring November 2, the applicant has requested a Board hearing date on October 11.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on October 11, 1999, for Rezoning Application RZ 1998-SP-062. She noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the County staff, Planning Commission, or Board consideration of this application in any way. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Given the critical nature of the improvements, UOSA has asked for Board assistance in securing expedited scheduling of the SEA application and concurrent processing of the SEA and the site plan. Therefore, he moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the scheduling of the SEA application and concurrently process the associated site plan. He noted that the applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

89.

BUILDING CODE TASK FORCE (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey stated that is has come to his attention that there are discrepancies in the State and Federal building codes as they relate to the requirements for construction of facilities under the accessibility requirements for physically disabled persons. These discrepancies may dissuade property owners from voluntarily improving commercial buildings because of the cost associated with meeting the various code requirements. Staff has suggested forming a work group with the industry to address this issue.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize the Office of Building Code Services to work with representatives from the building industry and the State to draft consistent and compatible language, which the Board could recommend for inclusion into the State Code to clear up any discrepancies. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

90.

This motion, the second to which was indistinguishable, carried by unanimous vote.

91.

for a small station wagon that could be donated to the Black Women United organization for use by Chantilly Mews. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

93.

STATE FARM INSURANCE (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey stated that he had received numerous complaints from citizens regarding the State Farm Insurance Company's response regarding hail damage from the early June storm. State Farm's policyholders are being treated differently from most of the other home insurance companies regarding the repair of the damage. Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Department of Telecommunications and Consumer Services to examine this situation and determine any assistance it can provide or prepare a letter for the Chairman's signature requesting State Farm to take into consideration the treatment of all of the other insurance companies and reevaluate its decisions. Without objection, it was so ordered.
