WATER CONSERVATION (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley referred to her written Board Matters and said that on May 24, 1999, the Board approved actions recognizing the importance of water conservation and asked for information regarding the Fairfax County Water Authority's (FCWA) plans should a drought last through the summer. The response from the Water Authority was distributed at the June 7, 1999, Board meeting.

Chairman Hanley further stated that several weeks ago Douglas Duncan, Montgomery County Executive, called for voluntary water conservation measures in that County because of extended drought conditions. The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) passed a resolution on July 14, 1999, requesting that water providers notify customers of the drought conditions and encourage them to undertake voluntary water conservation measures and that within each jurisdiction member governments encourage voluntary water conservation. On July 20, 1999, Loudoun County became the first jurisdiction in the region to approve mandatory restrictions on water use.

Although the FCWA Board has not formally advised that a water emergency exists, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board:

37.

PLANNING, ZONING, AND BUILDING PROCESS (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley stated that in recent conversations with religious and other community based groups, one issue that has been frequently raised by members of these organizations are the difficulties that many of them have encountered in navigating the County's planning, zoning, and building process. Chairman Hanley said that as these types of organizations are often comprised of volunteers and other citizens who may be unfamiliar with Fairfax County's land use policies and regulations, it is necessary to have a person on staff to serve as an ombudsman, whose job would include helping guide religious and other community groups through the planning, zoning, and building process.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to develop criteria for an ombudsman position within the Department of Planning and Zoning and report with its recommendations. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

38.

Chairman Hanley referred to a memorandum from Edwin S. Clay, III, Director, Fairfax County Public Library, which shows three options for restoring Library hours.

Following discussion this motion was withdrawn.

Following further discussion, with input from Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive, Chairman Hanley moved that the restoration of weekday public service hours for community library branches be added as a Consideration Item at Carryover.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board incorporate these items as Consideration Items at Carryover. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

41.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to determine the cost of the completion of this trail so that it could be considered at to the Carryover. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

45.

USE OF INSURANCE REIMBURSEMENTS FOR ROAD MAINTENANCE (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly stated that it has recently come to his attention that insurance reimbursements paid to the State when a vehicle does damage to the road system, such as hitting and destroying a guard rail, are funneled into the State of Virginia's general fund rather than being used to replace road facilities or make the necessary repairs for which the funds are intended. The repairs must be made and the cost depletes the County's already inadequate road maintenance fund. Supervisor Connolly noted the extensive needs for road repair, repaving, mowing, and other maintenance.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to work with the Department of Transportation, County Legislative staff, and the Northern Virginia Delegation on legislation which would require that funds paid by insurance companies for damage to County road facilities be used to repair that damage rather than be placed in the State's general fund. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

46.

MAKING CONSUMER ASSISTANCE MORE ACCESSIBLE ON THE WEB (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly stated that the Department of Telecommunications and Consumer Affairs presently maintain a site on the Fairfax County Web page to inform citizens of services the County offers to address consumer issues.

Supervisor Connolly said that he has heard recently from constituents who deem that this information is not easy to find. Presently someone entering the County's Home Page must know to click on the Government icon and to find Telecommunications and Consumer Affairs in the listing of agencies and departments. Once reached, this link offers much valuable information on everything from auto repair and home improvement concerns to a section on frequently asked questions. Residents may even access and fill out a consumer complaint form. Given the importance to the citizens of the many consumer assistance services the County offers, accessing this information should be as user-friendly as possible.

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

  • Create a visible link for consumer services on the home page.

IMPACT OF FIBER OPTIC CABLE PROJECTS ON COUNTY ROAD SYSTEM (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said that some dozen telecommunications companies are presently engaged in what may be the largest public works project in history: the laying of miles of glass fiber, the conduit of the digital age. This project is going on along roads across the country, but in technology hubs like Fairfax County, the work is pervasive. The "spine" they are laying along main roads will eventually have branches running into the business and residential communities. Supervisor Connolly further stated that at this time, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), projects are underway in his district along Arlington Boulevard, across Gallows Road to Tysons Corner, and up Route Seven along Sunrise Valley and Sunset Hill Drive in the Hunter Mill District. In Tysons Corner, the work is tearing up International, West Park, and Greensboro Drives. The companies involved are competitors in this booming industry, so there is little effort being made to coordinate efforts. It is often the case; therefore, that as soon as one company finishes laying its cable, and patches up the road, as they are required, another company applies for a permit to lay cable along the same route and begins to tear up that newly laid pavement. Residences and businesses along these corridors are enduring the effects of what must seem like never ending construction. The integrity of these roads is disturbed again and again in endless succession. This unprecedented boom in the telecommunications industry is the vehicle of great promise of progress and prosperity for Fairfax County citizens, but the attendant wear and tear on the road system needs to be addressed.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct:

  • The County Executive to explore the issue of wear and tear on the road system due to the many companies that are laying miles of glass fiber and report on any opportunities for new policy or legislation that would encourage or require companies to join in cable projects to lessen the impact on the road system.

  • The Director of the Department of Transportation to assess the extent of the current impact on the roadways and report his findings.

Following discussion, Supervisor Dix asked to amend the motion to include VDOT in this discussion, and this was accepted.

Supervisor Frey asked to amend the motion to request that VDOT plan for the future when granting permission to lay fiber optic cable, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, and it carried by unanimous vote.

NAMING/RENAMING OF SAILSBURY HOLLOW LANE, WINDRUSH DRIVE, AND DENALI WAY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that on June 7, 1999, he called to the Board's attention the error relating to the naming/renaming of streets called Salisbury Hollow Lane, Windrush Drive, and Denali Way. At that time he requested the Board=s support to rescind the new name, Salisbury Hollow Lane, because not all of the affected property owners were aware of the name change, especially those who own the ground on which the road lays. The Board concurred. Consequently, he met with the affected property owners and requested them to agree on a suitable name.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board:

  • Direct staff to change the name ADenali Way@ to ADogue Hollow Lane@ and to assign the name AWindrush Drive@ to an existing unnamed section of the road.

  • Give the property owner, Jennifer Such, the signs named ASalisbury Hollow Lane@ for their historical value.

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

49.

FORT HUNT ROAD/BELLE HAVEN ROAD PROJECT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland noted that the improvements to the Fort Hunt Road/Belle Haven Road Project (Contract #CN63213, Project #64160) have been completed. He added that the citizens are not happy with the lane configurations.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review the way this intersection works now and to provide an alternative striping pattern to help facilitate the traffic at this location. He added that there is a turn lane in the middle of Fort Hunt Road onto Belle Haven Road and the left turn signal does not work properly. Without objection, it was so ordered.

50.

RETIREMENT OF ELIZABETH S. DAVID, DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING AND ZONING (DPZ) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland said that within the last month the excellent, knowledgeable and loyal employee, Elizabeth S. David, DPZ, retired. He referred to his written Board Matters, which noted her many contributions to the County.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. David to appear before the Board to receive a Certificate of Appreciation for her years of service to the County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

 

 

 

51.

ADOPT-AN-ARTIFACT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland stated that recently he learned that Olde Town Alexandria has initiated a program called AAdopt-An-Artifact.@ Since its inception last December, the program has flourished. Individuals, school groups, scout groups, etcetera are adopting an artifact that has resulted in conserving more than 20 articles.

Supervisor Hyland pointed out that this program enables the public to provide funds for hiring a professional to clean a selected artifact, stabilize it, and conserve it. Each artifact will ultimately be displayed in an exhibit. The adoptees can select an item and when they do, they receive a certificate that has a picture showing the item before and after conservation and an acknowledgement of the cost to get it into exhibit condition. To do this, each artifact generally costs between $24 to $200 per adoption.

Supervisor Hyland noted that this program is a way of involving the public with the community and local government while stimulating their interest and providing funds to complete a worthy job. A few years ago there was a display case designed and made specifically for exhibiting archaeological finds in Fairfax County.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to review Alexandria=s AAdopt-An-Artifact@ program and to report with its findings and recommendations. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

52.

LOAN GUARANTEE PROGRAM (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix noted that on October 12, 1998, the Board directed that a policy be prepared to address the potential need for financial assistance from the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) to condominium communities in the County. On May 28, 1999, the FCRHA adopted a loan guarantee policy and program that, at this point, will only be available to condominium communities.

However, in addition to creating a loan program applicable to condominiums, there may be isolated situations where a townhouse homeowners association also may not have the resources to fund necessary infrastructure improvements. Supervisor Dix moved that Board direct the FCRHA to review the issue of including townhouse homeowners associations in this loan guarantee program along with the Board of Supervisors, but only in those instances where condemnation for associated health and safety issues is imminent. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

53.

OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT AUTHORIZATION REGARDING THE GREG-ROY SUBDIVISION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix said that the Greg-Roy subdivision, a community of 30 homes on one-acre parcels, is located north of Fox Mill Road near Frying Pan Road. In 1987, when the McNair Farms area was replanned, the Plan recommendation for Greg-Roy was changed to allow for consolidation and redevelopment of the subdivision. The change added an option for office and light industrial use subject to full consolidation of the subdivision. Five years ago, the current Plan guidance for Greg-Roy was adopted as part of a Plan change to the Reston-Herndon Suburban Center. The Plan recommends residential use at 1-2 dwelling units per acre (du/ac). With full consolidation, there is an option for 8-12 du/ac. In addition, there is a second option for mixed use up to .50 floor area ratio if Greg-Roy and adjoining land in the Suburban Center are consolidated.

Supervisor Dix said that there has been considerable residential development in the vicinity, including McNair Farms, Avalon,and Van Metre at Woodland Park. Greg-Roy is now a pocket of low-density residential development surrounded by higher density residential uses. In addition, the residential development to the north and east has precluded implementation of the mixed use option for Greg-Roy.

Therefore, Supervisor Dix moved that an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment be authorized to allow for a review of the Plan recommendation for the Greg-Roy subdivision. This review should address the appropriate redevelopment density and conditions for consolidation. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by unanimous vote.

54.

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

55.

He asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to determine whether there are sources of funding either from remaining transportation bonds or other sources of funding that might be available to be used for feasibility analysis and design of a parking facility.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the request to direct staff to report on August 2, 1999, with a Consideration Item including how much the design and feasibility analysis would cost. Without objection, it was so ordered.

62.

HUNTING AND SHOOTING IN FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that the pamphlet Hunting and Shooting in Fairfax County was last published in 1994 by the Department of Animal Control. It includes information on gun registration and the rules for gun usage in the County, but does not contain gun safety tips. Additionally, as these rules have likely changed in the past five years, she said it would be appropriate to have the most current information available to the public.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to revise and reprint the pamphlet, Hunting and Shooting in Fairfax County, and distribute copies to locations of gun sales in the County. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

63.

REQUEST FOR CONCURRENT AND EXPEDITED REVIEW FOR VIRGINIA CONCRETE AND BURKE HEALTH CLUB (BW MANAGEMENT) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova said that with construction of the Fairfax County Parkway and the realignment of Route 123, some Industrial Zoning District parcels were bisected and their access realigned from Pohick (the parkway) to a cul-de-sac off Clara Barton Drive (old Route 123 alignment) in Burke Centre. One of the parcels, formerly owned by Virginia Power, has been purchased by BW Management for the establishment of a health club or gym. A special permit is needed for a gym in the 1-5 district. One of the required standards is that the gym must be at least 100 feet from a parcel zoned R-1. The adjacent parcel to the east is owned by Virginia Concrete, which operates a concrete factory there under a special exception. The zoning is very old with a "donut" of R-1 zoning surrounding a center of I-6 zoning where the concrete factory is located. To allow the gym to be established the Virginia Concrete site needs to be rezoned to I-6 only.

The Burke Centre Conservancy is supportive of the gym because it would be used by the community and is preferable as a conditioned use rather than a by-right use such as self-storage. The Conservancy is not opposed to rezoning the Virginia Concrete site particularly if a sufficient buffer zone is established and no actual intensification occurs.

The special permit application has been languishing for some time as a solution was sought and Burke Centre and County planning staff were consulted. The rezoning application has also been filed.

 

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

  • Expedite the rezoning application by Virginia Concrete to rezone its property from the R-1 and I-6 Districts to the I-6 District and schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board prior to November 1999.

  • Simultaneously process the special permit application by BW Management for the Burke Health Club with the rezoning application and request that the Board of Zoning Appeal schedule its public hearing as soon after the rezoning is held as possible.

  • Concurrently and expeditiously process the Burke Health Club site plan with the rezoning and special permit applications.

This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards nor does it prejudice the consideration of these applications in any way. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

66.

SPOT IMPROVEMENTS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova said that she has discussed with the Transportation Advisory Committee the issue of spot improvements. She asked unanimous consent that up to $500,000 for the projects that are about to be under construction be authorized as a Consideration Item for Carryover.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the request to direct staff to circulate a status report regarding the list of spot improvements, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Following further discussion, without objection, the request, as amended, was so ordered.

67.

UNEXPENDED FUNDS FROM THE OFFICE OF THE SHERIFF (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova said that the Office of the Sheriff has conducted a preliminary review of its Fiscal Year (FY) 1999 expenditures in preparation for the year-end close process. According to the most recent figures for the Third Quarter projections there will be just over $400,000 in unexpended funds at the close of FY 1999. She said that the Sheriff is asking to be allowed to use a portion of these savings ($107,000) to increase the shift differential rate for swing shift from $0.25 per hour to $0.50 per hour and from $0.35 per hour to $0.70 per hour for a midnight shift. She noted that these are the rates paid to the employees of the Fairfax County Police Department for shift hours work. She asked unanimous consent that the Sheriff be allowed to do for the employees of the Sheriff's Department what the police are able to do for its employees if he is able to absorb the cost within his existing budget.

Following discussion, with input from Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive, Supervisor Frey asked to amend the request to include this issue as a Consideration Item, and this was accepted.

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

69.

RESIDENTIAL POLICE OFFICER (RPO) PROGRAM (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman reported that at a recent meeting to discuss challenges facing affordable housing in the metropolitan area, he learned of a program that Mayor Donnelly of the City of Alexandria has implemented. This initiative is called the RPO program. This program places veteran police officers in selected high crime areas. The officers reside in the neighborhoods and their "beat" assignment is to provide police services to residents while involving them in implementing effective solutions to specific community problems. Supervisor Kauffman provided details of the program as explained in his written Board Matter.

In light of the success of the City of Alexandria's RPO program in low and moderate-income neighborhoods, Supervisor Kauffman asserted that this program is worth analyzing for implementation in Fairfax County. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct the Chief of Police to work with the commander of the Mount Vernon District Police Station to determine whether this program would be useful as a pilot in the Buckman Road corridor. He further stipulated that the review should include a recommendation on possible incentives, including their budgetary impact, to offer officers who voluntarily elect to participate in the pilot program, should the Board endorse the concept. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR APPLICATIONS FOR KINGSTOWNE HOLDINGS I (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that Kingstowne Holdings I, LC has a pending application to modify the plan for Section 1 in Kingstowne to include single family detached units. The applicant has worked with both planning staff and the surrounding community and, prior to the zoning review and approval process, the applicant has received the written support of the Kingstown Residential Owners Corporation. Based on these circumstances, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board approve concurrent processing with the site plans and related engineering drawings associated with Rezoning Application RZ 1999-LE-047, Final Development Plan Applications FDP 1999-LE-047, FDP C-448-36, and Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA C-448-21.

of the pending zoning application. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

71.

CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR KINGSTOWN TOWNE CENTER APPLICATIONS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that the Kingstowne Towne Center is designed and planned to be the heart of Kingstowne. The developer of Kingstowne has filed an application to slightly modify the existing approved Towne Center plans by including a more significant office use component. He noted that these revised plans have been well received by both staff and the community who are anxious to see the Towne Center become the thriving, mixed-use heart of Kingstowne originally envisioned.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board approve concurrent processing with the site plans and related engineering drawings associated with Rezoning Application RZ 1999-0040, Final Development Plan Application FDP 1999-021, Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 1999-0025 and Final Development Plan Amendment Application FDPA 1999-0013.

74.

RECRUITING BONUSES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that he recently read in the School Division's Supergram that school employees are being offered a $500 bonus possible for each employee who successfully recruits a public school bus driver candidate. He moved that the Board authorize the County Executive to offer a similar incentive to County employees in an effort to recruit school crossing guards if he deems it appropriate.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct the County Executive to provide a recommendation on whether he deems it appropriate and the budgetary implications, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

75.

POSSIBLE SISTER CITY RELATIONSHIP WITH INCHON, KOREA (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey reported that he recently met with Michael Runde, president of the Washington Dulles World Trade Group, and the driving force behind the creation of the Dulles World Trade Center (DWTC), which will focus on high technology transfer and business tourism. One step in the effort to establish the DWTC is to develop sister city relationships with jurisdictions around the world that are also part of the world trade center partnership. Mr. Runde has been conducting discussions with representatives of Inchon, Korea who are excited about the possibilities of locating and doing business in the County and pursuing the sister city relationship. Supervisor Frey distributed a packet of information regarding Inchon and detailing this endeavor.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to explore necessary steps for the County to establish a sister city relationship with the dynamic, technologically advanced city of Inchon, Korea and appoint a point-of-contact person to conduct discussions with the mayor and the ambassador. Supervisor Frey stated that the Commonwealth of Virginia has already established a sister relationship with the province in which Inchon is located and may have funds to assist. He also noted that the mayor of Inchon will be in the area in November and perhaps could address the Board at that time. 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 establish some guidelines for establishing a sister city relationship. There are current relationships with Essonne, France and Russia. Without objection, it was so ordered.

A Certificate of Publication was filed from the editor of the Fairfax Journal showing that notice of said public hearing had been duly advertised in that newspaper in the issues of July 8 and July 15, 1999.

Discussion ensued with input from Charlene M. Fuhrman-Schulz, Planner III, Planning Division, Department of Planning and Zoning, Neil McBride and Tim Sargeant, Co-Chairmen of the Laurel Hill Citizen Advisory Committee.

Supervisor McConnell stated for the record that the organizations want lighted ball fields so that they may be used in the evening for games.

Following the public hearing, which included testimony by 15 speakers, Supervisor Hyland recommended the following areas for modification:

  • The first is the addition of a collector road to be located behind the middle and high school sites to serve as a secondary access point for both schools. Its designation as a collector road will ensure maintenance and snow removal once it is adopted into the State road system. This will result in modifications to the maps on pages 18 and page 25 of staff report dated June 24, 1999. On both of these maps, this collector road should be added along the alignment of the secondary trail that abuts the two school sites.

  • The second modification is to provide an alternative if the transportation facility is not adaptively reused. He modified the first bullet on page 38 of the staff report to indicate that if it is not feasible to adaptively reuse the existing transportation facility, it should be demolished and be used as an alternative elementary school site, or be developed with single family detached housing at 2-4 dwelling units per acre.

  • The third modification addresses the other elementary school site. On page 39, the first bullet should be modified to indicate that access to the elementary school should be from the abutting collector road, rather than Silverbrook Road.

  • The fourth area of change clarifies that hospital uses are not appropriate in the areas planned for institutional use, since these can be intensive uses; therefore several portions of the text need to be modified to make this clarification.

  • In addition, a fifth change on page 43, first bullet, the words "research and development uses" need to be deleted.

Supervisor Hyland moved approval of Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment S99- CW- 1CP as recommended by the Planning Commission on July 8, 1999, with the additional modifications listed above, which are also shown in the handout entitled "Changes to the Planning Commission Recommendations for Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment S99- CW- 1CP," dated July 26, 1999. He further moved that the Board adopt this Plan Amendment as the County's Reuse Plan for the Lorton Correctional Property and that this Reuse Plan be sent to the General Services Administration on or before October 21, 1999, as indicated in the Lorton Technical Corrections Act of 1998.

 

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it CARRIED by a recorded vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Dix, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor
