SIGN BLIGHT (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that on November 16, 1998, the Board recognized Mrs. Barbara Ellis and participants in the Adopt-A-Highway Program for their contributions to the community in reducing sign blight. As a part of these efforts to beautify neighborhoods in Fairfax County, the Adopt-A-Highway participants are required to pay fees to deposit the support sticks for the signs at the County transfer station. Although it is a small fee, it is nonetheless a burden on the citizens. This program is one of the only mechanisms that the County has for effectively reducing sign blight. A waiver of the fees would be one solution. There may be alternative uses for the sticks and that recycling for another use may be a better and more environmentally sound solution. Several groups that use similar sticks to support and protect seedlings are the Fairfax County Department of Urban Forestry, the Virginia Department of Forestry, and Fairfax ReLeaf.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to investigate the possibility of recycling this material, and, in the event that recycling is not possible, authorize the staff to waive drop-off fees at the County transfer station for active participants in the Adopt-A-Highway Program. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to determine the cost of the waiver of fees, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR DULLES GREEN LIMITED (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that Dulles Green Limited, a residential project on Rock Hill Road in Herndon, has been under construction for the past year. This project, the former Kay property, was the subject of a great deal of controversy in the past. Supervisor Mendelsohn said that Toll Brothers, as the present developer, has been very cooperative with his office and the community in designing a development that is very compatible with the surrounding properties. In a continuing effort of cooperation, the developer has determined that a lower density without a high rise building is more compatible with the surrounding neighborhoods. A lower building has always been the desire of the adjacent homeowners.

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

  • Expedite Proffered Condition Amendment Application/Final Development Plan Amendment Application PCA/FDPA 89-D-060-2.

  • Concurrently process these applications with the site plans for this project.

This motion does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of any and all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards and does not constitute support by this Board for approval in any way. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

39.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

INDIVIDUAL SEWER OUTFALLS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland stated that individuals can obtain a permit for an individual septic system for a privately owned house from the Commonwealth and bypass Fairfax County's requirements. This is a procedure that does not require nor does it have any language requiring periodic inspection for function purposes.

 

Supervisor Hyland noted that there are many houses located on the shores and cliffs of the Potomac River and to have a failing septic system could mean raw, untreated sewage going directly into the waters where people swim, boat, and water ski.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

  • Review the existing regulations to determine the Board's options.

  • Determine what needs to be done so that the Board can be routinely notified when a single-family septic system permit has been applied for at the State level.

  • Identify ways that would give Fairfax County periodic inspection authority of the single-family septic systems.

  • Report with recommendations by September 13, 1999.

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

NO CUT THROUGH TRUCK TRAFFIC (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to find a way for the "No Cut Through Truck Traffic" process to be held entirely in Northern Virginia and to report with his recommendations. Without objection, it was so ordered.

for a drive-through pharmacy last year. This application was heard by the Planning Commission in July 1998 and the Planning Commission recommended approval.

However, due to contractual difficulties with the owner of the property, the application was indefinitely deferred before the Board could hold a public hearing. The applicant has recently reactivated the application and a new public hearing before the Planning Commission has been scheduled for September 15, 1999. Since no changes are being proposed, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on September 27, 1999, at 4:30 p.m. on Special Exception Application SE 98-H-021.
