Discussion ensued with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney.

Supervisor Bulova stated for the record that on principle she has no problems with the super majority vote requirement, but that she would be voting against it because of the County Attorney's opinion that the Board does not have the authority to impose a super majority.

Following discussion, with input from Mr. Griffin, Paul L. Baldino, Director, Park Authority, and Mr. Long, Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the Board with a list of projects that will use the $11 million discussed during the budget workshops.

With reference to the funding for historic preservation (Consideration Items 12, 13, and 19), Supervisor Dix noted that there is a proffer associated with the Reston Town Center development that refers to the development of a cultural center.

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed the Community Improvement Program. See page 9.)

With reference to the Community Improvement Program as discussed earlier in the meeting and noting its importance in relation to revitalization efforts, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to:

  • Review the subject of the number of communities that need help.

  • Provide recommendations as to the design and planning for these communities but, most important, the construction, which may need consideration of a bond referendum.

Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

Supervisor Dix clarified that the language of the motion entails the inclusion of communities that have been waiting, similar to the ones discussed earlier in the meeting, and that the Board should advise staff of who they are to determine some kind of eligibility if, in fact, the Board decides to proceed.

(P)

POLICY REGARDING ALL GUNS SEIZED OR CONFISCATED BY THE FAIRFAX COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley informed Board Members that she recently learned from the Police Chief that, although it is not the current practice of the Fairfax County Police Department to do so, guns that the police have confiscated, seized, or that citizens have turned in voluntarily have been traded in to gun dealers in the past. The practice regarding the disposition of such weapons has varied depending on a number of factors, including budgetary considerations, at the discretion of the Police Chief. She asserted that Fairfax County residents have a right to expect that guns that are confiscated, seized, or voluntarily turned over to police will be either returned to their legal owners or destroyed, regardless of financial considerations or who may be Chief.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that:

  • It will be the policy of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors that, when no longer needed for law enforcement purposes, all guns seized or confiscated by the Fairfax County Police Department, or turned in to the police by citizens, will be destroyed. If the Chief of Police determines that any guns in the possession of the department, including those purchased for police use, are no longer useful for any law enforcement purpose, such guns will also be destroyed.

  • The Chief of Police shall have the discretion to exempt those guns that are deemed to be of extraordinary value and/or historically significant, and which are unlikely to be used in the commission of a crime. The Police Chief may receive advice and information from a historian or firearms expert with regard to the value of weapons he believes may fall into this category.

Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Robert J. O’Neill, Jr., County Executive, and Colonel J. Thomas Manger, Police Chief, the question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

34.

ORDINANCE TO COLLECT THE ELECTRIC UTILITY LICENSE TAX AUTHORIZED BY THE VIRGINIA CODE (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley distributed for Board Members’ a bulletin from the Virginia Association of Counties (VACo) reminding Boards of Supervisors around the State to adopt the appropriate ordinance to collect the electric utility license tax authorized by the Virginia Code. As the bulletin points out, all of Virginia’s cities already have such a license tax in place, as do about half of the counties in the Commonwealth. Under the recently enacted Virginia Code, Section 58.1-3731, in cases where localities do not collect the license tax, or collect less than the maximum allowed to be collected the tax is remitted from the utility directly to the Commonwealth. Therefore, as the bulletin points out, electric company rate payers in those localities that do levy the tax are paying the same rates as consumers of electricity in counties that do not have the license tax or whose levy is less than the statutory maximum.

Chairman Hanley stated that the Board is on record in a number of different contexts in support of seeking the authority to diversify the tax base and reduce the County’s dependence on the residential real estate tax as the major source of revenue for the County government. The Board has also noted on several occasions that whenever the State levies a new tax, Fairfax County becomes a donor jurisdiction.

In light of the VACo bulletin and recent changes to Virginia law regarding the amount of tax that may be collected and the collection methods, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to:

  • Determine what steps, if any, the County should take to ensure that Fairfax County electric utility customers are not required to further subsidize the State.

  • Report with a recommendation immediately.

Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

35.

COMMENDATIONS TO STAFF FOR THE PROCESSING OF PERMITS FOR AHOLD REAL ESTATE COMPANY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey shared a letter with Board Members from Ahold Real Estate Company showing its appreciation that the County has processed its application for the building permit in its efforts to relocate its headquarters to Fairfax County.

Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to commend all who worked so hard to process these permits. Without objection, it was so ordered.

36.

ADDITIONAL TIME FOR WEST*GROUP REZONING APPLICATION REGARDING STONECROFT BOULEVARD (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey reminded Board Members of a recently approved zoning application for West*Group, who agreed to significant construction and improvements to Stonecroft Boulevard. The intention of the parties is to ensure that Stonecroft Boulevard is complete and open to the public prior to the beginning of the next school year. To facilitate that timeline, the contract requires that West*Group select a contractor, and that the bond be posted prior to September 15, 1999. West*Group has selected a contractor, who is diligently working toward this goal.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board extend the deadline to September 27, 1999. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Dix, and Chairman Hanley being out of the room.

37.

PENDING CHANGES TO FAIRFAX CONNECTOR BUS ROUTES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey apprised Board Members of some pending changes to Fairfax Connector bus routes 557 and 929. The residents of Franklin Farm and Chantilly Highlands have expressed their concerns with the recently implemented bus service on Dower House Drive, Dairy Lou Drive, and Allness Lane. As a result of these concerns, Supervisor Frey stated that his office and the Department of Transportation (DOT) held meetings with the communities.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the DOT to alter Fairfax Connector Bus routes 557 and 929 so that they are operated on West Ox Road and Centreville Road rather than Dower House Drive, Dairy Lou Drive, and Alness Lane, effective October 3, 1999. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Dix, and Chairman Hanley being out of the room.

38.

OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT FOR MITCHELL WEEKS HOUSE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey stated that Mitchell-Weeks house is an eighteenth century structure of architectural and historical significance. The house is located on property which was recently the subject of a Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) condemnation hearing and is currently under review by the Department of Planning and Zoning for a Proffered Condition Amendment (PCA) application. The applicant is considering options for commercial development of the property and has offered, as part of the pending PCA application to donate the house and a significant sum of money to the Historic Centreville Society to relocate and preserve the home on a nearby site. The current Comprehensive Plan language for the property requires that the Mitchell-Weeks house be preserved on the site. As a result of the taking, the site contains less than one acre, and preservation of the home would severely limit the development of the site.

Supervisor Frey stated that in 1997, the Planning Division drafted language which would permit the relocation of the Mitchell-Weeks house, but that language was ultimately not included in the final adopted language for the site. However, in light of the VDOT condemnation and the applicant’s willingness to allow for the preservation of the home and willingness to coordinate with the Historic Centreville Society, Supervisor Frey stated his belief that it is appropriate to amend the Plan language to allow for the relocation.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to accept and process an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment for Tax Map Number 34-4-((1))58, 59, 60D, to consider deleting the requirement that the Mitchell-Weeks house be preserved in its current location. In coordination with the Planning Division, October 21, 1999, 4 p.m. and October 26, 1999, have been identified as available dates for the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors hearings, respectively. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Dix, and Chairman Hanley being out of the room.

WAIVER AND REIMBURSEMENT OF FEE FOR THE USE OF THE COUNTY’S SHOWMOBILE AT THE CIVITAN CLUB’S ANNUAL PICNIC (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey noted that the Chesapeake District Club recently held its twenty-ninth annual Burke Lake picnic for the mentally disabled and handicapped. The Civitan Club used the County’s Showmobile as part of its event; however, this was the first year that the organization was charged a fee.

Supervisor Frey moved:

  • Waiver of the $150 fee associated with the use of the Showmobile for the Civitan Club’s annual picnic held on July 29, 1999.

  • Reimbursement to the Civitan Club of the amount paid.

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

 

40.

ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS TO REDUCE THE COST AND MAINTENANCE OF BRIDGES AND FAIR WEATHER CROSSINGS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey circulated a piece of composite material known as Prestek that has been designed and manufactured to be utilized in bridge construction. The material is prefabricated and is lighter and easier to assemble and maintain than traditional bridge materials.

Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to review this and other similar materials for the purpose of considering whether there are alternative feasible designs and materials which could reduce the cost and maintenance for bridges and fair weather crossings. Without objection, it was so ordered.

41.

CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF SITE PLANS AND BUILDING PLANS FOR REZONING APPLICATION RZ 95-Y-056, SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 95-Y-071, AND PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATIONS PCA 87-S-023-2 AND PCA 74-2-112 (MOBIL OIL – PINEY BRANCH ROAD) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey stated that earlier this summer the Board approved Rezoning Application RZ 95-Y-056, Special Exception Application SE 95-Y-071, and Proffered Condition Amendment Applications PCA 87-S-023-2, and PCA 74-2-112 in the name of Mobil Oil Corporation for a service station on Piney Branch Road and West Ox Road. To maintain the required timeline, the applicant has requested concurrent processing of the necessary site plans and building plans.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to accept and concurrently process the site plans and building plans for the Mobil site at Piney Branch Road and West Ox Road. This motion was seconded by Supervisor Bulova and carried by unanimous vote.

42.

BOARD HEARING FOR CALIBER SPATIUM PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 85-S-061-2 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey stated that on September 15, 1999, the Planning Commission will hear a Proffered Condition Amendment application to amend the allowable height limit for a building within Westfields. The contract between the applicant, Caliber Spatium and the contract purchaser, requires that the application be completed prior to October 8, 1999.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to schedule the Board hearing for October 11, 1999, for Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 85-S-061-2. It is understood that 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 Dix seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

43.

CHANGES TO THE PLAN AMENDMENT FOR THE CENTREVILLE FARMS AREA (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey called the Board’s attention to the Plan Amendment adopted for the Centreville Farms area and stated that there is now considerable activity within that area and a need to make changes to the plan adopted by the Board.

Supervisor Frey stated that he has asked Sully District Planning Commissioner Koch to chair a citizens committee of interested parties in that area to review the plan language and report to the Board at the beginning of the year with any recommended changes.

This year, four outstanding Special Olympians represented Fairfax County and Virginia at the World Summer Games that were held over the July Fourth Weekend in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill "Triangle" of North Carolina.

Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board invite the Special Olympics athletes to appear before the Board to receive its recognition and congratulations. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

45.

NO BOARD MATTERS FOR SUPERVISOR BULOVA (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova announced that she had no Board Matters to present today.

46.

SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 98-P-064 - CRAVEN'S NURSERY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that Special Exception Application SE 98-P-064, in the name of Clifton Paul Craven and Nancy Craven, was scheduled for a public hearing before the Board today at 4 p.m. The Planning Commission deferred this case for decision only until September 16, 1999.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to defer the public hearing on Special Exception Application SE 98-P-064 until September 27, 1999, at 4 p.m. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

 

 

 

 

 

47.

ECOSTEWARDS ALLIANCE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that Ecostewards Alliance is an organization dedicated to furthering the respect and understanding of the earth's natural resources. As part of its work, Ecostewards Alliance assists in the design and creation of backyard habitats. The habitat's emphasis on native plants reduces the need for water, fertilizer, or maintenance, thereby reducing the runoff and nutrient loads flowing into the Chesapeake Bay.

Supervisor Connolly said that the 10,000 square foot habitat in Yorktowne Condominiums was started in November 1998 in an effort to provide refuge for plants and wildlife displaced by a neighboring development.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite Peter Kelsey, President of Ecostewards Alliance, and Jeanette Stewart, a Yorktowne resident and point of contact on the project, who have led the efforts to create the habitat in Merrifield, to appear before the Board to be recognized for their accomplishments and efforts. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

48.

HORSE SHOE COURT RIGHT-OF-WAY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly stated that Van Metre Homes, Incorporated, is filing a rezoning application for an assemblage of 11 parcels. The application proposes to include right-of-way known as Horse Shoe Court (Route 775), which is proposed to be vacated and abandoned to provide a new plan for coordinated development. All of the properties that access Horse Shoe Court are to be included in this application. Because of the County's interest in the right-of-way, the applicants must obtain consent from the Board of Supervisors to file their application.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of the right-of-way for Horse Shoe Court (Route 775) in the application for rezoning to be filed by Van Metre Homes, Incorporated for property identified as Tax Map Number 39-1 ((3)) Parcels 5A, 9, 9A, 10, 10A, 11A, 11B, 11C, 11D, 11E, 12. This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

49.

JEFFERSON PARK PHASE 2 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that a subdivision plat has been recorded and certain open space conveyed to the homeowners association for the Jefferson Park Land Bay C development in Merrifield. After a final architecture was complete, it was determined that with the brick facades on the buildings, there is encroachment on the rear and side yards on a number of townhouse buildings (between 2-4 inches). To satisfy the required setbacks specified by the Zoning Ordinance, a total of 660 square feet of previously recorded and dedicated open space must be used. The remaining open space equals that represented on the Generalized Development Plan. 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.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board decline to accept dedication of this 660 square feet of land in Phase 2 of Jefferson Park. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

50.

EXPEDITED AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING - MORGAN CHASE REZONING APPLICATION/FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN APPLICATION RZ/FDP 1998-PR-026 (Tape 7)

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. The applicant has worked extensively with staff to address concerns with the site.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board:

  • Expedite a public hearing for RZ/FDP 1998-PR-026.

  • Direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on October 25, 1999, at 4 p.m.

  • Direct staff to concurrently process any subdivision or site plans for RZ/FDP 1998-PR-006.

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 Hyland and Supervisor Kauffman being out of the room.

51.

BICYCLE FACILITIES IN THE COUNTY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that his office has recently been contacted by a constituent in search of a map of bicycle facilities in the County. In subsequent checking with the Park Authority and the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, he learned that there is no map designed for public distribution that shows current bicycle facilities in the County. Currently, the only maps available showing bicycle facilities in the County are the Countywide Trails Plan, which shows existing and planned trails, and the ADC Washington Regional Bike Map, which is produced in coordination with the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG). However, he said that the COG map, while an extremely useful tool, has not been updated in several years.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to develop a plan to produce a map of bicycle routes and trails in Fairfax County for public distribution and report with their findings. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion

and it carried by a vote of seven, supervisor Frey, Supervisor Hyland, and Supervisor Kauffman being out of the room.
