Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a Proclamation declaring November 1999 as Adoption Awareness Month in Fairfax County and invite the appropriate individuals to appear before the Board.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, *Supervisor Connolly asked that he be recorded as voting "AYE" on this motion. See Clerk’s Summary Item CL# 39.)

38. DETECTIVE JUNE BOYLE RECENTLY NAMED VIRGINIA’S TOP HOMICIDE INVESTIGATOR OF THE YEAR (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley announced that Fairfax County Homicide Detective June Boyle was recently named Virginia's "Top Homicide Investigator of the Year" at the annual meeting of the Virginia Homicide Investigators Association.

39. REQUEST TO RECORD VOTE (Tape 3)

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that he be recorded as voting "AYE" on the previous motion to declare November as Adoption Awareness Month in Fairfax County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

40. VARIOUS PAYMENT METHODS USED TO PAY PERSONAL PROPERTY TAXES (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley stated that Fairfax County residents had more methods to choose from than ever before to pay their personal property taxes by last week's October 5 deadline. Taxpayers made their payments by mail, by telephone, at area banks, at the CRIS automated kiosks, and on the Internet using credit cards or electronic checks. Thousands of residents continued to pay their taxes in person as well.

Chairman Hanley congratulated the staff of the Department of Tax Administration for their usual magnificent job of moving people through the lines smoothly and efficiently.

Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the Board with information regarding how many residents took advantage of each of the different methods available to pay their personal property taxes this year, and what form of payment was used (credit card, check, cash, electronic check, et cetera). Without objection, it was so ordered.

41. BETTER ENFORCEMENT OF EROSION AND SEDIMENTATION REGULATIONS (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley distributed copies of an article in the October 6, 1999, edition of The Washington Post, entitled "Construction Mud Clogs Waterways - Little Enforcement of Runoff Laws," which points out a problem of much concern to Fairfax County residents, especially those who are adjacent or downstream from development sites.

One of the Environmental Quality Advisory Council’s (EQAC) Water Resources Recommendations in its report for 1998 states that "EQAC recommends the County provide DEM additional inspectors to handle construction site inspection responsibilities given the apparent increase in construction activity." County staff responded in the report "If the workload exceeds the tolerances then adding inspectors will be considered." A County staff member has gone on record in the article, however, as stating that the site inspection staff is so stretched that the 27 inspectors and six supervisors can check only the largest development sites. Inspectors believe they seldom have time to inspect the 600 or so "in-fill" building sites in established areas and note that it would be nice to have more people. Even the State director for erosion and sedimentation control notes that it isn't possible for inspectors to visit every development site.

Chairman Hanley said that while all of the 30,000 tons of sediment that the Water Authority removes yearly may not be the County’s (FCWA's intake is upstream in Loudoun County), better enforcement of laws already on the books would go a long way in helping the County do its part in protecting downstream property owners as well as County streams, the Potomac, and the Chesapeake Bay.

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct the County Executive to report with an analysis of what it would take, in terms of manpower and dollars, to adequately inspect all building sites in the County to be certain that there is compliance with erosion and sedimentation regulations. As part of this analysis, Chairman Hanley asked that the Tree Preservation Task Force's Recommendation Number 34, Idea Number 22 - investigating the possibility of merging the conservation enforcement functions of erosion and sediment control inspection with enforcement of tree planting and preservation requirements - which the Board approved on September 13, 1999, be considered as part of that analysis and that the Environmental Coordinator work with staff on this issue. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked to amend the motion to designate that the Environmental Coordinator be assigned to coordinate the effort and to report the recommendation, and this was accepted.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, Deputy County Executive, the question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.

42. STATE FUNDING FOR OPEN SPACE PRESERVATION (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley stated that the Conservation Land Coalition in Virginia this year will urge Governor Gilmore to include $40 million in his budget to conserve open spaces. It notes that Virginia is one of the only states on the East Coast that has no automatic annual funding for land conversation and cites losses of 450,000 acres of farmland since 1987 and 26,000 acres of forests since 1992.

Noting that the Board's Legislative Committee is currently beginning to draft the Legislative Program for 2000, Chairman Hanley moved that the issue of establishing a permanent state fund for conserving open spaces be referred to Legislative Committee for discussion. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

43. LETTER FROM THE LIBRARY BOARD (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley shared a letter from the Chairman of the Library Board requesting an examination in the Legislative program of the current formula for allocating library money in Virginia.

Chairman Hanley moved that this letter be referred to the Legislative Committee for review. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

44. GOVERNOR’S ANNOUNCEMENT ON EXPEDITING HIGHWAY PROJECTS (Tape 3)

Chairman Hanley stated that the Governor in his recent announcement on expediting highway projects specifically noted that he had directed the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to expedite immediately the Environmental Impact Study (EIS) on the I-66 corridor outside the Beltway. She reminded the Board that last year the MIS was completed on this project although nothing has moved forward since then.

Chairman Hanley stated that at the Transportation Coordinating Council (TCC) Executive Committee meeting of September 10, 1999, there was discussion regarding the EIS effort and the Committee agreed that various parties including affected local jurisdictions and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority needed to be involved from the outset including the need to have a technical steering committee that reviews the scope of work before consultant procurement is initiated. It is important that this EIS be a fully coordinated effort.

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a letter to VDOT reaffirming the direction given at the TCC Executive Committee meeting and requesting that this effort proceed accordingly. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

45. SMALL BUSINESS COMMISSION UPDATE (Tape 3)

 

(BACs) Chairman Hanley stated that she received a copy of the Small Business Commission update that she would forward to all Board Members.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

46. EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY COMMISSION (EEOC) AND LABOR DEPARTMENT POSTERS (Tape 3)

Supervisor Gross stated that it was brought to her attention that the EEOC and Labor Department posters that are supposed to be displayed in each and every office in Fairfax County may not be appropriately posted.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the County Executive to review the posting of these federally required posters in County government offices to assure that they are posted appropriately. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

47. BIKE TRAIL COORDINATOR (Tape 3)

Supervisor Gross reminded the Board of a matter from the September 13, 1999, Board meeting raised by Supervisor Connolly regarding a Bike Trail Coordinator. Supervisor Gross stated that it was called to her attention that there is no Trails Coordinator on staff and she moved that this issue be referred to staff with the idea that the position be included in the next budget.

Following discussion, with input from Robert J. O’Neill, Jr., County Executive, Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to first consider using existing resources before adding a new position to the budget, and this was accepted.

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

48. COMMUNITY WIRELESS STRUCTURES II, LLC (Tape 3)

Supervisor Gross informed the Board that the Planning Commission public hearing for Public Facilities Application 2232-M99-6, in the name of Community Wireless Structures, has been deferred to give the Mason District Land Use Advisory Committee an opportunity to review the application. To partially offset this delay, the applicant has requested that site plan processing be concurrent with the 2232 request.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to process the site plan associated with this application concurrently. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on the 2232 application by the Board of Supervisors, and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Dix being out of the room.

 

49. PAVING AND PARKING REGULATIONS IN FRONT YARDS (Tape 3)

 

Supervisor Gross stated that on October 5, 1999, the County Executive sent a memorandum to the Board responding to a question regarding limiting the paving of a front yard and/or the number of parked vehicles permitted on single family detached dwelling unit lots. Staff performed an extensive survey of over fifty jurisdictions, and found that it may be beneficial to consider the establishment of a requirement to maintain a certain percentage of a front yard as open space. She noted that this issue has been identified as a priority by several neighborhoods in Mason District, and certainly would have Countywide benefits.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board add this item to the Zoning Ordinance Work Program. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

50. FAIRFAX COUNTY LICENSE PLATE (Tape 3)

Supervisor Gross reminded the Board of her previous request to endorse the effort of the History Commission to develop a Fairfax County license plate, which would raise awareness of the historical significance of the County, act as a source of pride for County residents, and possibly raise funds to assist in historic preservation. Delegate Jim Scott served as the patron of the license plate at the General Assembly.

Supervisor Gross announced her pleasure to present to the Board a design that was unanimously approved by the History Commission last week. The attractive design stresses the County’s historical significance by prominently displaying the County seal, and adding its unofficial motto, "Home of the Bill of Rights." The added incentive to purchasers is that the percentage of funds returned to the County from sales of the plate would go directly to the History Commission.

Supervisor Gross stated that with the Board's approval, the next step is to present the design to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), after which 350 prepaid applications would have to be submitted in order for DMV to begin production.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board:

 

 

 

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to defer how funds should be allocated, and this was accepted.

 

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

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing was deferred. See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#96.)

52. CRIME RATE COMPARISON (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly referred to a request made at a previous Board meeting that staff provide Board Members with copies of a series of articles printed in The Washington Post several years ago comparing the crime rate in Fairfax County with that of Montgomery County. He said that he had not received his copies.

Chairman Hanley said that she had received her copies a few weeks ago.

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that he had no Board Matters to present today.

54. KATHLEEN DIAMOND WINS INTERNATIONAL WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS AWARD (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hyland said that twenty years ago, Kathleen Diamond took a risk and started an at-home business. The entrepreneurial force that drove Ms. Diamond to create her own successful business was recognized recently by an international women's organization at its conference in Belgium.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the Chairman to write a letter on the Board's behalf recognizing Ms. Diamond for her lifetime achievement award, for being the beacon for others to follow, and for creating opportunities that enrich the lives of many people. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

55. LONG RANGE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hyland said that he had received a letter from Colonel Kurt Weaver, Garrison Commander at Fort Belvoir, requesting improvements to I-95 and the Fairfax County Parkway.

Fairfax County government continues to receive national, state, and local awards from many organizations, including at least the National Cable Association, National Association of Counties, Commonwealth of Virginia, Government Finance Officers Association, Virginia Municipal League, Keep America Beautiful, and Ford Foundation for Innovations.

Supervisor Hyland suggested that it is time for the Board to establish an annual environmental award to be given to an outstanding Fairfax County employee and an award to the public sector for going a step beyond the standard regulations, codes, policies, etcetera and award to an individual who unselfishly dedicates time and energy for the betterment of the environment in Fairfax County.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board establish an Annual Environmental Award as described above and to direct staff to work with the Environmental Quality Advisory Council and the Tree Commission to draft criteria and report with recommendations by December 6, 1999. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Dix asked to amend the motion to include the private sector as another organization to be recognized, and this was accepted.

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

65. FAITH COMMUNITIES IN ACTION - EVENT ON OCTOBER 13, 1999, AND PROPOSAL FOR A FAIRFAX COUNTY OFFICE OF INTERFAITH PARTNERSHIPS (Tape 4)

Supervisor Bulova said that on Wednesday, October 13, 1999, Faith Communities in Action is hosting its third major event at Saint Matthews United Methodist Church on Little River Turnpike in Annandale. The title of the forum is "Treading Water in the Wake of Welfare Reform." Speakers at the event will examine effects of Welfare Reform and provide examples where joint efforts between local government and faith-based organizations have made a difference in people's lives. Demonstrations of County, church and non-profit resources to address human services needs will be provided.

The event will conclude with break-out groups where faith-based organizations can network with each other and County staff from their respective regional offices. Follow-up meetings (tentatively scheduled for January and February) in each of the Human Services Regional Offices will encourage collaborative approaches to the delivery of human services.

Faith Communities in Action is a Fairfax County-wide network of faith communities formed to facilitate communication and working relationships among congregations. This network enables faith communities to better identify and respond to the needs of the community-at-large, in partnership with non-profit organizations and local government.

As the Board is aware, faith based organizations and religious congregations have traditionally been very active in providing services to individuals in need in the community. These services include ad hoc crisis intervention, food and shelters, refugee resettlement, homeless prevention, etcetera. These services are provided in the community by organizations serving geographic regions such as FISH, CHO, SHARE, ACCA, ECHO, UCM, to name just a few.

Supervisor Bulova said that interfaith/local government forums have existed or have been established in most of the Supervisor Districts. There are now over 200 faith organizations indicating an interest in partnering with the public sector to provide services to those in need. With an increasingly diverse population, and increased service demands by families and children, the public sector continues to look to community organizations to help fill gaps in services.

Supervisor Bulova said that there are many additional ways in which Fairfax County can partner with the faith community to provide resources to address community needs, where County resources can be tremendously leveraged through collaborative efforts.

Supervisor Bulova pointed out that a critical element, an organizational focal point, is needed if Fairfax County can maximize these opportunities. An example of such an entity is the "Center for Community and Interfaith Partnership" in the Federal Department of Housing and Community Development, which helps to develop, organize, and link resources in the faith community with people in need.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct the County Executive to:

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

69. WEST NILE VIRUS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix called the Board's attention to the issue of the West Nile virus that is responsible for three deaths in New York City. This virus is transmitted to humans and birds by mosquito bites, causing encephalitis or brain inflammation. Biologists are concerned that birds carrying these mosquitoes may be migrating to areas south of the New York including Washington, D.C. Accordingly, Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Health Department staff to examine this issue to determine whether preventative action is necessary. Without objection, it was so ordered.

70. CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR WINWOOD CHILDREN’S CENTER (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix stated that the Planning Commission recently approved a Reston Town Center concept plan for Winwood Children’s Center. Winwood representatives anticipate an enrollment of up to 200 children in childcare programs for children ages six weeks to pre-kindergarten, as well as before and after school programs for children ages 5-12. Accordingly, Supervisor Dix moved that the Board authorize the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to accept the PRC and final site plan for the Winwood Children’s project for concurrent processing. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor Mendelsohn being away from the dais.

71. CHILD SAFETY SEATS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Dix announced that the Police Department's Public Information Office issued an advisory that reported the results from child safety seat checkpoints. The failure rate is alarmingly high. Accordingly, Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Office of Public Affairs continue its efforts to raise the public's awareness of this issue and the aggressive safety seat checkpoint programs available.

Following a brief discussion, without objection, the request was so ordered.

72. VIENNA HALLOWEEN PARADE (Tape 5)

73. ESCROW FOR PROSPECT GLEN (Tape 5)

Supervisor McConnell stated that Mr. James Audi, the developer of Prospect Glen subdivision, which consists of 14 homes built in the late 1980s, has been attempting to have the escrow, held with the County for the future removal of a temporary cul-de-sac curb and gutter, released since 1991. At the time Prospect Glen was built, County staff thought that the adjacent properties might be consolidated to build up to nine additional homes. The lots have one home on each presently, with the last being built after Prospect Glen was completed. It is now apparent that consolidation of these properties will not occur in the foreseeable future.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review the need to hold this escrow for Rezoning Application RZ 85-S-035 since the adjacent properties have been developed and there no longer appears to be a need to hold Mr. Audi’s money for the possible removal of the temporary cul-de-sac. Without objection, it was so ordered.

74. CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF SUBDIVISION PLANS WITH REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1998-SP-062 (Tape 5)

Supervisor McConnell stated that the applicant for Rezoning Application RZ 1998-SP-062 is requesting that the Board approve concurrent processing of its subdivision plans so the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) will accept and review the subdivision plan applications while the rezoning application is being processed. Accordingly, she moved that the Board:

Supervisor McConnell 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 the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or standards whatsoever. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Supervisor Hyland was not present at the dais and was voting from the audience seating.)

75. FIREWORKS FOR THE MILLENNIUM CELEBRATION (Tape 5)

Supervisor McConnell stated that the celebration of the Millennium will be a festive time throughout the County and people will celebrate with fireworks. Chapter 62 of the Code of the County of Fairfax, Section F3103.1, Fire Codes, regulates the use and sale of various types of fireworks. The zoning codes further define when and where fireworks will be sold. Currently, fireworks may be sold in the County only from June 15 through July 15 each year.

To assure that residents obtain legal fireworks that are safe, Supervisor McConnell proposed that the Code of the County of Fairfax, in the fire and zoning sections, be changed to allow fireworks to be sold from December 15, 1999, through January 5, 2000. This will afford residents who wish to utilize fireworks to obtain safe displays as well as allow the Fire Marshal’s office to inspect the types of pyrotechnics sold. The Fire Marshal’s office supports the proposal.

Accordingly, to change the Code in time for the celebration, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to bring the changes, which are dates only, before the Board at its next meeting to schedule the public hearing and conduct other necessary processes prior to the last meeting in November. The change would be specifically for the period beginning December 15, 1999, and would expire after January 5, 2000. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Fire Marshal's Office to review the possible fire safety issue of selling fireworks alongside Christmas trees. Without objection, it was so ordered.

The question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Supervisor Hyland was not present at the dais and was voting from the audience seating.)

Last fall the Humane Society of the United States conducted a survey regarding public attitudes toward animal shelters. Supervisor Frey reported that 70 percent of the individuals surveyed said that their overall impression of animal shelters was positive and that 75 percent have had positive experiences with animal shelters.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board:

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

(NOTE: Supervisor Hyland was not present at the dais and was voting from the audience seating.)

The Planning Commission hearing is now scheduled for November 10, 1999, to accommodate some requested changes. Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to schedule the public hearing before the Board in January 2000. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Supervisor Hyland was not present at the dais and was voting from the audience seating.)

82. FIRE MARSHAL INSPECTIONS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey called the Board's attention to a letter he had received from Jess Hendrix, Chairman, Electrical Advisory Board, regarding the length of time associated with reviews by the Fire Marshal's Office. Supervisor Frey stated that he has reviewed the issue with Chief Stinnette, who has recognized the problem and is attempting to deal with the review of plans as well as the length of time for inspections. Accordingly, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide an update on this issue from Chief Stinnette as to timeframes.

Chairman Hanley noted that she believed that she had referred this issue to John Wesley White, Director, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services.

Without objection, the request was so ordered.

83. RECESS/CLOSED SESSION (Tape 5)
