He was pleased to read on the County website that the Child Care Resource System maintains "detailed, up-to-date, information" about licensed child care centers. He was dismayed, however, to find the lack of information which he thinks would be most valuable to make an informed decision. Because the County obtains such data, he would appreciate being able to access, for instance:

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to report on the availability of such information, as well as the potential for placing this and other pertinent information on the County website. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, *Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

(NOTE: *Later in the meeting, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that he be recorded as voting "AYE" on the motion. See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#41.)

36. ANNANDALE DAYS FALL FESTIVAL AND PARADE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross announced that it is the time of year for one of the great Fairfax County traditions--the annual Fall Festival Parade in downtown Annandale. The parade will be held on Saturday, October 30, 1999, kicking off at 10 a.m. on Columbia Pike.

After the parade, everyone is invited to attend two exciting events. Consignment Biz on John Marr Drive will be an official collection site for the Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots program. Immediately following the parade, everyone is invited to meet the Marines at Consignment Biz and drop off a toy. New, unwrapped toys will be accepted at the store through December 22, 1999. Also following the parade, running to 4 p.m., is the Fourth Annual Annandale Days Fall Festival. Once again, the festival will be held in the parking lot of the Main Street USA restaurant at 7131 Little River Turnpike.

39. MOUNT VERNON COUNCIL'S RESOLUTION OPPOSING THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, CHAPTER 112, (ZONING ORDINANCE) REGARDING PLACES OF WORSHIP (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland announced that the Mount Vernon Council opposes the proposed amendment to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 112, (Zoning Ordinance), regarding places of worship which would allow places of worship to be established "by-right" in specified residential districts.

Supervisor Hyland said that the Council opposes approval of the proposed amendment because by-right development of such a specialized function as a place of worship within a residential community removes from citizens the opportunity to be heard as to the suitability of the proposed establishment. It is emphasized that the present system of controls and applications are appropriate for establishment of such a specialized use.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the public hearings on these proposed amendments were deferred. See Clerk’s Summary Items CL#88 and CL#89.)

40. MS. SENIOR AMERICA HAILS FROM MOUNT VERNON (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hyland announced that for the first time in the 19-year history of the Ms. Senior America Pageant, a Virginia resident has been selected for the honor. He noted that Ms. Joyce Reilly Clautice is from the Mount Vernon District.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Clautice to appear before the Board so that she may be accorded due recognition for her achievement. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

41. REQUEST TO RECORD VOTE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that he be recorded as voting "AYE" on the previous items. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Hyland said that on September 13, 1999, the Board directed the Police Department to examine the policies and procedures of the Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT) "Timely Notification..." He said that he received a response that neither addressed providing more timely notice to the residents nor the use of County facilities for storage of the towed vehicles. He suggested that the Board consider a legislative remedy.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report with recommendations as to a procedure that would be more reasonable as far as requiring notice in excess of 48 hours. Without objection, it was so ordered.

There was a brief discussion of this issue.

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, Supervisor Hyland presented the agenda for the next meeting of the Environmental Committee. See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#37.)

With reference to Supervisor Hyland's Board Matter regarding the Environmental Committee, Supervisor Gross expressed appreciation to him for placing the Geese Peace Partnership on the agenda.

45. REQUEST FROM NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION FOR TAX EXEMPTION (Tape 6)

Supervisor Dix stated that he had received a request from the National Wildlife Federation to apply for a tax exemption through the Virginia General Assembly. Noting that he supported this request, he asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this item to the Legislative Committee and the County Attorney for consideration. Without objection, it was so ordered.

46. EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT BENEFITS EMBRY RUCKER COMMUNITY SHELTER (Tape 6)

Supervisor Dix stated that he recently learned that Eagle Scout Matthew Harper recently completed a project to benefit the Embry Rucker Community Shelter. The result of the project was the contribution of 2000 pounds of items including such items as diapers, socks, towels, toothpaste, soap, and other personal necessities. In addition, over $1000 in cash was raised for the homeless men, women, and children living at the shelter. He noted that this achievement is even more remarkable because Mr. Harper has autism.

Accordingly, Supervisor Dix asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Harper to appear before the Board to be recognized for his outstanding project and support on behalf of the Embry Rucker Community Shelter. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

47. J.R. STOCKYARD INN CELEBRATES TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Dix announced that the J.R. Stockyard Inn is celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary of operation.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed the designation of the American holly tree as the County tree species. See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#28.)

With reference to a question raised during the discussion regarding the American holly tree, Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that this tree species is not desirable by deer.

51. PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, CHAPTER 112 (ZONING ORDINANCE) FOR PLACES OF WORSHIP (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova announced that while the Planning Commission has already provided recommendations for the proposed Zoning Ordinance amendment changes regarding places of worship, the public hearings for which are scheduled later in the day, she intended to move to defer these public hearings until January 10, 2000.

Supervisor Bulova also announced that she and Supervisor Frey have continued to meet with and work with the network for places of worship. As a result of the recent discussions regarding the proposed Zoning Ordinance amendments concerning places of worship, she stated that staff has identified two other areas of the Zoning Ordinance that warrant review to determine whether changes would be beneficial. One concerns the existing Zoning Ordinance provisions that allow the Zoning Administrator to approve minor modifications to approved special permit or special exception uses, subject to specified criteria and notice provisions. It has been suggested that consideration should be given to revising these provisions so that larger building additions to existing uses could be approved under these provisions. Another suggestion concerns allowing administrative approval of minor additions to existing uses, which were established as a use by right, but now require special permit or special exception approval. Currently, the Zoning Ordinance does not allow any expansion or building additions for these uses, and there are instances where a minor change, such as the enclosure of a stairwell, should be allowed administratively, without triggering the requirement for special permit or special exception review. Noting that both of these changes could provide additional flexibility for places of worship wishing to make minor changes to their sites, Supervisor Bulova expressed her belief that they are worthy of staff review and consideration by the Board and Planning Commission.

Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to review the aforementioned suggested Zoning Ordinance changes and prepare any amendments deemed appropriate for Board consideration by January 2000, if not sooner. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley suggested that the staff try to determine, prior to 6 p.m. this evening, whether all of the proposed Zoning Ordinance amendments regarding places of worship can be scheduled on the same day in January.

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to notify all of the scheduled speakers for this evening's public hearing that the public hearing will be deferred. Without objection, it was so ordered.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the public hearings on the proposed amendments were deferred until January 24. See Clerk’s Summary Items CL#88 and CL#89.)

52. EXPANSION OF THE ANNANDALE RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova stated that she had forwarded to the Department of Transportation (DOT) the petition for the expansion of the RPPD on Terrell Street from Newcastle Drive to Heritage Drive. Students are consistently parking in this block beyond the distance of 1500 feet from the entrance to the school.

To proceed with the request, Supervisor Bulova stated that DOT needs Board approval to waive the minimum of 100 contiguous on-street parking spaces and the fees. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct staff to waive the minimum of 100 contiguous on-street parking spaces and the fees and to proceed as expeditiously as possible. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

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

53. SPECIAL STUDY FOR THE SPRINGFIELD AREA (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman reminded the Board that on May 18, 1999, it authorized a special study for the Springfield Community Business Center (CBC), similar to those undertaken in McLean, Annandale, Bailey’s Crossroads/Seven Corners, Richmond Highway, and Merrifield over the past year and one half.

Supervisor Kauffman stated that since the authorization of the special study, revitalization activities and initiatives have continued to be enacted in Springfield. His office, C-SPARC (the revitalization council), and staff have held many meetings with developers to help entice redevelopment in this business district. They have found the need for more urban densities in the Comprehensive Plan to better fit the community's vision for the urban center.

Supervisor Kauffman said that the three general areas of the CBC offering the best opportunities for near-term urban-scaled development are:

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff from the Department of Planning and Zoning and the Department of Housing and Community Development to work with his office to begin the special study authorized for Springfield and to concentrate the study on the three areas outlined above with the intent to establish urban design and intensity guidelines that will encourage redevelopment similar to that allowed in the urban centers and transit station areas. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

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

 

54. RESIDUAL LOTS NEAR BACKLICK ROAD FOR USE AS A COMMUNITY PARK (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that two years ago, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) completed the widening of Backlick Road between the Franconia-Springfield Parkway and Alban Road. To fit the project, many homes on the west side of Backlick were removed, leaving lots now owned by VDOT, which form a natural buffer between the Beverly Forest community and the four-lane roadway. He noted that, technically, these R-1 zoned lots can be sold and homes with R-3-sized lots built on the residual land. This would reintroduce multiple curb cuts on a roadway that must carry a high volume of traffic, especially during the construction of the Mixing Bowl.

Supervisor Kauffman said that rather than re-creating a problem, VDOT may support the disposal of this land to the Park Authority if the Park Authority is interested in the property for park use. On September 22 the Park Authority voted to accept this land, if available. The Beverly Forest community has also expressed its support to have the land brought into the system.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to draft a letter from the Chairman to be sent to Mr. Farley of VDOT informing him of the County's interest in these residual lots for use as a community park. The second to this motion was indistinguishable.

Following discussion, Supervisor Kauffman clarified that there is no inference in this motion that any of this property would be purchased; it would be dedicated to the Park Authority.

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

55. CONDITION OF THE MASSEY BUILDING (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that on a recent trip to the Massey Building, his staff was appalled by the poor condition of the elevators in the building. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct staff to:

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Supervisor McConnell asked to amend the motion to direct staff to extend its review to all conditions in that building, and this was accepted.

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

56. SCHEDULING OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 99-S-027 (Tape 6)

Supervisor McConnell stated that she had been contacted by the applicants for Special Exception Application SE 99-S-027 (West Springfield Center-Terra Associates) regarding the status of their application, which was approved by the Planning Commission on October 6, 1999. She said that this routine case involves the replacement of a sign for the West Springfield Shopping Center.

Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct staff to advertise and schedule the public hearing for Special Exception Application SE 99-S-027 for the first Board meeting in January 2000. Supervisor Dix seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

57. STATUS OF AMENDMENTS TO THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX REGARDING OUT-OF-STATE TRASH TRUCKS (Tape 6)

Supervisor McConnell reminded the Board that in August she and Supervisor Gross presented a joint Board Matter concerning out-of-state trash trucks that pose a health and safety problem for County citizens. The Board's action directed changes to multiple chapters of the Code of the County of Fairfax, but only changes to Chapter 109 (Solid Waste) have been enacted.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to provide an update on these changes, provide the schedule, and accelerate the process. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

58. RECESS/CLOSED SESSION (Tape 6)

At 11:25 a.m., Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board recess and go into closed session for discussion and consideration of matters enumerated in Virginia Code Section 2.1-344 and listed in the agenda for this meeting. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.
