27. Attendance Information for Boards, Authorities, Commissions, and Task Forces (Tape 4)

(BACs) Chairman Hanley stated that in order for the various Boards, Authorities, Commissions, and Task Forces to work effectively, various Fairfax County agencies provide staff to support these efforts. Chairman Hanley said that it has recently been brought to her attention that some appointed groups do not always have full active memberships; often the inactivity is reported to the Clerk to the Board's office on only a quarterly or annual basis. Occasionally, a member has resigned, but failed to provide any notification. The current notification procedures require Agency Directors or designated staff to ensure that among other things that "changes to the membership, mission, or status of the legislative authorization of the group(s); and the names of members who are absent for three consecutive meetings are to be transmitted to the Office of the Clerk to the Board of Supervisors by the supporting staff agency."

Therefore, Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review current notification procedures and establish procedures that allow the Clerk to the Board and therefore, the Members of this Board to receive attendance information in a timely manner. Without objection, it was so ordered.

28. Police Department Receives Award for Best Traffic Safety Program in the Nation (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley said that for the second time in six years, the Fairfax County Police Department has been recognized by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) for having the best overall traffic safety program in the nation. The Police Department was presented the
Clayton J. Hall Award for 1999. When established, the award was designated so that no agency could ever win the award twice; however, the IACP judges felt no other law enforcement program was equal to Fairfax County's program. The Police Department also received two other top awards; for the fourth year the County received the Child Passenger Safety Award and the Chief's Challenge Award for departments with 1001 to 2000 officers. This program targets three major traffic safety priorities through enforcement and education efforts. The targeted areas are speeding, impaired driving, and occupant safety.

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Police Department to appear before the Board to be recognized for this award. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide statistics on this issue and a comparison to other localities. Without objection, it was so ordered.

29. Proclamation Designating February 2000, as African American History Month in Fairfax County (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Office of Equity Programs and the African American Community to appear before the Board on February 24, 2000, to receive a Proclamation designating February as African American History Month in Fairfax County.

30. Proclamation Designating March 24, 2000, as World Tuberculosis Day in Fairfax County (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley announced that World Tuberculosis (TB) Day is designated as March 24, 2000, to encourage all Fairfax County residents to recognize the importance of TB screenings.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to invite the appropriate representatives from the Health Department and a physician working closely with TB patients to appear before the Board on
March 13, 2000, to receive a Proclamation designating March 24, 2000, as World Tuberculosis Day in Fairfax County. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and
Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

31. Proclamation Designating April 2000 as Immunization Month in Fairfax County (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley announced that April is National Immunization Month. In recognition of the importance of Fairfax County's commitment to children and to encourage all County residents to take advantage of timely childhood immunizations, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to:

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

32. Maintenance of Public Sidewalks in the Vicinity of Construction (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley said that a constituent brought to her attention the need to be certain that sidewalks are maintained in good condition. While maintenance of sidewalks is the responsibility of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) in most cases, the constituent reminded her that sidewalks in the vicinity of new development and where utility work is being done, may be damaged during the development process. Sometimes they are not returned to a condition that is safe for pedestrians and cyclists.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to pay particular attention to the condition of public sidewalks during the site review and inspection process to be certain that they are returned to a safe condition, or that VDOT is notified that repairs are necessary.
Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being out of the room.

33. Enclosed Pedestrian Walkways (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley stated that enclosed pedestrian walkways linking buildings and/or parking decks are calculated as gross floor area in computing a building project's maximum floor area ratio. She further stated that the County is engaged in the process of improving pedestrian access in the County's commercial areas.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to examine the way that the County designates enclosed pedestrian walkways vis-B -vis gross floor area to determine what changes in policy would be beneficial. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

34. Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Year 2000 Formula Allocation (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley stated that she had received a copy of the CDBG Year 2000 formula allocation.

Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that this item be referred to staff. Without objection, it was so ordered.

35. Infill and Residential Development Study (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley said she had received a memorandum from the Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) regarding four meetings that have been scheduled for the Infill and Residential Development Study. She called the Board's attention to the action taken at a recent Board meeting to direct staff to schedule a meeting in each Supervisor district.

Following discussion, with input from James P. Zook, Director, DPZ, it was the consensus of the Board that staff will schedule a meeting in each Supervisor district as originally requested.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

36. Request Board Recognition of the Department of Information Technology (DIT) Staff Members (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hyland noted that recently David Molchany, Chief Information Officer, was notified that his agency had been selected for several awards.

 

The awards are as follows:

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite members of DIT involved in these achievements to appear before the Board for recognition of their accomplishments. Without objection, it was so ordered.

37. Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment Requested for Huntington Transit Station Area, Land Units C and D (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hyland said that the Huntington Transit Station area is recommended by the Comprehensive Plan as a mixed-use center that optimizes rail transit ridership while maintaining the stability of existing nearby neighborhoods. The mix of uses planned for the area include office, retail, residential and open space. Directly across Huntington Avenue from the Huntington Metro Station is an area of approximately 14 acres that is planned for 400,000 square feet of office use with a retail component. Recently, interest was expressed in possibly developing the site for residential use. Because residential use is also an important component of the type of community envisioned for the transit station area, an evaluation of the area should be conducted.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board authorize an Out-of-Turn Plan amendment of the property designated in the Plan as Land Units C and D of the Huntington Transit Station area for the purpose of considering residential use. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

38. Requesting Possibility for a Richmond Highway Technology Zone (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hyland said that on May 10, 1999, he requested staff to review the possibility of designating parts of Richmond Highway a "Technology Zone" as a means to attract and retain more technology companies to the area. He added that on September 13, 1999, he asked for a status of his request on May 10, but has not had a response to date.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to investigate the possibility of designating a technology zone along all or part of Richmond Highway to create incentives to attract new companies and retain existing employers, and that this information be furnished to the Board with its summary findings and recommendations by January 24, 2000.
Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

39. Mount Vernon Town Meeting (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hyland announced that the Mount Vernon Town meeting will be held on January 22, 2000. Supervisor Hyland further stated that a number of County agencies will have exhibits including the Department of Animal Control who will be bringing dogs and cats to encourage adoption. He invited fellow Board members to attend.

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced his intent to defer the public hearing on the continued leasing of a portion of County-owned property known as the Lewinsville Facility located at 1609 Great Falls Street,
McLean, Virginia 22101, Tax Map Number 030-3-01-0042, to Fun and Friends Child Development Centers, Incorporated.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk’s Board Summary Item CL# 79.)

41. Open Space Preservation (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the fact that the green space is disappearing in Fairfax County, and throughout the country, is of concern to everyone. Efforts on behalf of open space preservation, however, are not keeping up with the unprecedented growth in this area, and the one-time opportunities for land preservation are, unfortunately, being lost to the County and to future generations. The rate of loss of open space is staggering. The loss of green space in Fairfax County for the time period 1990-2020 is projected to be approximately 8,000 acres. Although there is still time to preserve some of this rapidly disappearing open space, the opportunity to preserve some of the almost 25,000 acres of trees lost in Fairfax County in the decade between 1980 and 1990 has been lost forever. Although economic growth in this area is remarkable and to be commended, the effect of the loss of open space on this high quality of life is becoming more and more apparent.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asserted that, therefore, it is imperative that options be explored for funding that will allow the County to acquire and maintain land for use and enjoyment today and for future generations to come. Although the legislative program includes such proposed legislation at the State level, there is no guarantee that such a State fund will become a reality, or that it would be adequate to meet the preservation needs in Fairfax County. One way to accomplish some of the County's preservation goals would be to establish a mechanism that will allow the public an easy way to make voluntary contributions toward the preservation of open space. It has been proposed that a self-explanatory box located on a County tax bill could accomplish this objective. Similar to the federal model for matching campaign contributions, the box could be checked by a taxpayer desiring to make a contribution for open space preservation. The taxpayer could then include a separate check, for the amount designated for preservation, to the County along with the tax payment. Contributions collected in this manner could then be placed in a land preservation trust to be used for acquiring and maintaining active and passive green space. To encourage donations,
Supervisor Mendelsohn also proposed that the funds raised be utilized for land preservation projects in the vicinity of the donor's residence.

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

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

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, additional action was taken on this item. See Clerk’s Board Summary Item CL# 44.)

 

42. Appointment to the Park Authority (Tape 6)

(APPT) Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that the Dranesville Park Authority Representative, Richard Bissell, has resigned his position on the Park Authority Board, effective January 12, 2000, after several years of exemplary service to Fairfax County.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board:

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

43. Reorganization of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPW&ES) (Tape 6)

There was a brief discussion with input from Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., County Executive, regarding the issue of the proposed reorganization of DPW&ES.

Supervisor Frey announced that a Development Process Committee meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, January 12, 2000, at 3:30 p.m. in room 232.

44. Open Space Preservation (Tape 6)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting action was taken regarding this issue. See Clerk’s Board Summary Item CL# 41.)

Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report, if possible, an estimate of the fiscal impact of taking land off the tax rolls. Without objection, it was so ordered.

45. New Fire Station (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the citizens of the Dranesville District are delighted that a new fire station is to be built in the near future at Route 7 and Reston Avenue. He said that his office has received correspondence and phone calls from many citizens requesting that the name of the new fire station be the Dranesville Station. He said that he is aware that the new station has been referred to as the Northpointe Fire Station during the planning stage, but there appears to be compelling reason for the permanent station name to reflect the important history of the area. Letters were distributed to Board Members from the Fairfax County History Commission, Great Falls Historical Society, Mr. Milburn Sanders, and the Great Falls Volunteer Fire Department addressing this issue.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to research the following questions and report its findings to the Board for consideration of this issue:

Following a brief discussion, without objection, it was so ordered.

46. March is Developmental Disabilities Inclusion Month (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that throughout the United States, March will be celebrated as Developmental Disabilities Inclusion Month. In Fairfax County, during the month of March, the Arc of Northern Virginia, in conjunction with People First, a self-advocacy group for people with developmental disabilities, and the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board, educate the public about the abilities and needs of people with developmental disabilities and their families.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board proclaim March as "Developmental Disabilities Inclusion Month" in Fairfax County and that the others be invited to appear before the Board on March 13, 2000, to receive the proclamation. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Mr. Douglas Sullivan were recognized with a proclamation on
January 2, 2000, for assisting the Town of Vienna in the successful implementation and installation of the new telephone system.

Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board congratulate the above-named individuals for their outstanding service and insure that a copy of this letter is part of their personnel files. Without objection, it was so ordered.

49. Complete Count Committee (Tape 6)

(BACs) Supervisor Frey announced that in April, the United States Bureau of the Census will conduct the decennial census of the American people. In preparation for this, the Bureau has opened the Fairfax County Local Census Office and will hold an open house of the facility on Friday, January 21, 2000, from 2:30 p.m. until 5 p.m. at 5285 Shawnee Road, Suite 510, Alexandria.

This office will serve 78 percent of Fairfax County (the remaining 22 percent is serviced by the Alexandria office).

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the staff of the Office of Public Affairs to continue to assist with the census effort by announcing job application procedures and publicizing centers where applicants can apply. Without objection, it was so ordered.

(APPT) Supervisor Connolly moved the appointment of Mr. Donald J. Emerson as the Providence District Representative to the Countywide Non-Motorized Transportation ("Trails") Committee. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

52. Local Use Tax Distribution (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly reported that on Friday, January 7, 2000, County staff met with Danny Payne, State Tax Commissioner, along with representatives of other Northern Virginia and Richmond area localities, to address mutual concerns over the proposed distribution of the local use tax. As a result of that meeting, an agreement has been reached between the localities and the State Tax Commissioner to delay, until July 1, 2001, any implementation of a revised methodology to distribute or redistribute the local use tax. The localities have agreed to work with and to provide technical assistance to the Commissioner during this period of time and he has agreed to delay any implementation of a change in formula. In addition, they agreed that a method of resolving differences between/among localities regarding allocation of the tax be achieved regionally. They also agreed that legislation would not be necessary this session because of that agreement.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize staff to immediately work with the other Northern Virginia localities to write a joint regional letter to the Tax Commissioner to reflect the agreement achieved in Friday's meeting, in return for similar written confirmation from the Tax Commissioner stating his agreement. Such a letter would be signed either by the mayors and chairs or by the chief administrative officers of the region. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the legislative liaison to distribute copies of the letters to the members of the Northern Virginia Delegation, if deemed appropriate. Without objection, it was so ordered.

53. Intent to Defer the Public Hearing on Rezoning Application RZ 1999-PR-017 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly announced his intent to defer the public hearing on Rezoning Application RZ 1999-PR-017, scheduled for 4:30 p.m., until
January 24, 2000, at 5 p.m.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, this public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk’s Board Summary Item CL# 87.)

54. Flint Hill School (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly stated that Flint Hill School is the title owner and/or contract purchaser of approximately 29 acres on Jermantown Road near Oakton Road. Recently, Flint Hill School submitted a special exception application to build a private high school on the properties. Approximately .15 acres of right-of-way, representing the prior alignment of Oakton Road, are requested to be included in this project.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of approximately .15 acres of right-of-way of the prior alignment of Oakton Road adjacent to Tax Map Parcels 47-3((1)) 20 and 34, within the land area of the Flint Hill School Special Exception application. He noted that this action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

55. JCE Incorporated Rezoning Application (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly stated that JCE, Incorporated will soon be submitting a rezoning application for approximately 9.54 acres of land in the Providence District. The applicant proposes to vacate a portion of Center Street for the proposed development. Center Street is a dedicated roadway that has not been accepted by the Virginia Department of Transportation for maintenance. The applicant proposes to realign and improve Center Street as part of this rezoning application.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of approximately .31 acres of Center Street in the JCE, Incorporated rezoning application. He noted that this action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

56. Real Estate Tax Relief for the Elderly and Disabled (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that a constituent has requested an increase in the annual income limitation on real estate tax relief for the elderly and disabled. The current qualifying annual income limit of $40,000 has not been raised since 1991. He stated his understanding that the current County limits of $40,000 in annual income and $150,000 in assets (excluding the home and up to one acre of land) are below the current limits permitted by State Code ($52,000 in annual income and $195,000 in assets).

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct the Department of Tax Administration to determine the fiscal impact of raising the real estate tax limits and report with recommendations so that any change to the Code of the County of Fairfax could be considered in conjunction with adoption of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2001 Budget. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Bulova asked to amend the motion to direct staff to, in addition to providing the fiscal impact, analyze other things that have occurred since 1991, such as inflation, property values, et cetera, for the report, and this was accepted.

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

57. Donation of Common Property (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell stated that her office was recently contacted by
Mr. Doug Stinchcum, a member of the Winston Knolls II Homeowners Association Board of Directors, regarding the donation of a 1.81 acre and a 6.76 acre piece of undeveloped common property and an abandoned .12 acre tot lot area to the County. The common properties are located on tax map 76941 and are identified as follows:

Supervisor McConnell stated that in addition to the donation, Mr. Stinchcum, the only remaining member of the association’s Board of Directors, seeks to declare the Winston Knolls II Homeowners Association defunct.

58. Resignation of West Springfield High School Softball Coach (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell reminded the Board that Mr. Robbie Benton recently announced his resignation as coach of the West Springfield High School softball team after 20 years of service in this position. As coach he preserved the longstanding tradition of athletic excellence and sportsmanship and captured two regional titles as well as a group AAA State title in 1983.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Benton to appear before the Board at a future meeting to receive recognition for his outstanding accomplishments and significant contribution to the community as coach of the West Springfield High School softball team. Without objection, it was so ordered.

59. Recognition of Mr. Bernie Cieplak (Tape 7)

Without objection, it was so ordered.

60. Request for Chair Adjustment (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to adjust her chair at the dais. Without objection, it was so ordered.

61. Yates Ford Road (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell announced that the Yates Ford Road transportation improvement project is nearing completion and she noted that it is a wonderful improvement. The Virginia Department of Transportation and County Department of Transportation (DOT) staff were able to develop a solution to residents’ concern that kept the rural character of the road, while allowing for much-needed improvements to enhance safety and mobility.

Supervisor McConnell stated that during those months of numerous meetings with the residents of Yates Ford Road and the subdivisions which adjoin it, the County staff promised that, once the construction was completed, they would request a study to ascertain if a "No Through Trucks" restriction was warranted for the road. In keeping the promise, she moved that the Board direct DOT to initiate the process for conducting the "No Through Trucks" study on Yates Ford Road. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

62. Acquisition of Property (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell stated that her office was recently contacted by Mr. Anthony Burshick of 7715 Carrleigh Parkway in Springfield following an incident in which a tree from a neighboring property fell into his yard, crushing his fence. The property, located at 79-4 ((9)) 14P, is listed in the name of Concord Development Corporation. She noted that staff from the Real Estate Division of the Department of Tax Administration affirmed that thousands of dollars in back real estate taxes are owed on the property, but that the County has been unable to locate the owner.

Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to take action to acquire the property for taxes due and turn the deed over to the Park Authority as it has done with adjacent properties. With the understanding that the Board has the legal authority to take this action, Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

63. Vacation of Sidewalk Right-of-Way in Cardinal Forest (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell asked the Board’s consideration to grant the vacation of a ten-foot parcel dedicated for public sidewalk use between
Lots 79-3-((8))-54 and 79-3-((8))-55 in Cardinal Forest, Section II. The vacation of said right-of-way was previously considered by the Board on December 12, 1983. The vacation was denied on the grounds that the County held a responsibility to see that public land was kept clean and that appropriate laws were enforced in the vicinity. Documents detailing this history were distributed to the Board.

Supervisor McConnell said that the walkway is currently unpaved and without any clear delineation. She noted that the County has neglected to maintain the pathway, which, as confirmed by the School Board, is no longer in use as a means of access to West Springfield High School. The walkway has also received the negative attention of neighborhood residents and school officials for reasons of safety.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review this issue. Following a brief discussion, without objection, the request was so ordered.

64. Cultural Arts Center for Fairfax County (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell stated that she recently visited her hometown of Jacksonville, Florida where she attended a concert at the city's concert hall. She raved about the facility and expressed her desire to have a similar cultural center in the County. She stated that County representatives should visit this facility to review the design and examine the cost.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to
Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to examine the Jacksonville facility, as well as some other selected halls across the country, to learn how they are financed and report to the Board on the financing of a music hall. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Following further discussion, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the report that staff had already been directed to provide regarding a cultural arts center on the Government Center property. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board of the available land at Laurel Hill as an option.

65. Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Citizen Information Meeting (Tape 7)

The Board briefly discussed a recent highway lighting project.

66. School Aged Child Care (SACC) Policies (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross stated that last week she received an unsigned letter from SACC teachers complaining about certain policies. According to the letter, SACC policy regarding student behavior is severely lacking compared to the school system in general, which employs the "Student Responsibilities and Rights" agreement. Noting the important role of SACC in the community, she asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to the County Executive and appropriate County staff for response to the Board. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley stated that she had already forwarded this letter to staff.

67. Resolution To Recognize County Executive
Robert J. O'Neill, Jr.
(Tape 7)

Noting that today is the County Executive's last meeting, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved adoption of the Resolution presented to Robert J. O'Neill, Jr., for his outstanding leadership and service to the citizens of Fairfax County and expressing the Board's appreciation for his service as County Executive. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.
