Supervisor Connolly said that he recently learned that
Deputy Charles E. Michael, Jr., of the Sheriff's Department will be receiving a Lifesaving Award from the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce for his successful efforts to save the life of an inmate.

Supervisor Connolly said that at work as a deputy in family court on
October 4, 1999, Deputy Michael discovered a prisoner attempting to hang himself in the court holding area. Deputy Michael was able to hold the prisoner up, preventing him from suffocating, until another deputy arrived to free the prisoner.

Deputy Michael has worked for Fairfax County for 42 years and will be retiring effective March 1, 2000.

47. Flint Hill Upper School Concurrent Processing (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that on November 23, 1999, the Flint Hill School filed a Special Exception Application SE 99-PR-046 to permit construction of the Flint Hill Upper School. The proposed 189,812 square foot facility, which is proposed to be built in phases, would serve secondary students in grades 9-12. The school will ultimately include a two-story school structure with administrative offices, classrooms, cafeteria, gymnasium, library, laboratory space and a fine arts facility, tennis courts, athletic fields and a track facility. On January 10, 2000, the Board authorized inclusion of the former alignment of Oakton Road in the Special Exception application.

Supervisor Connolly said that the school will be a private college preparatory day school. Completion of the new upper school campus will allow the school to expand its program offerings and provide a full range of academic and athletic activities to secondary students in grades 9-12. The school is anxious to begin construction as soon as possible after SE approval to ensure that, if approved, the new campus is able to open in September 2001.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to concurrently process the necessary plans associated with Special Exception Application SE 99-PR-046 and construction of the Flint Hill Upper School. 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 McConnell being out of the room.

48. Hunters Branch Concurrent Processing (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company recently submitted a Proffered Condition Amendment application for an office building at Hunters Branch near the Vienna Metro.

The additional Floor Area Ratio needed for the proposed building will be converted from reserved to active density. The applicant is eager to begin processing of the site plan at this key Metro-oriented site.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to process the site plans and building plans for the Hunters Branch PCA concurrently with Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 80-P-039-7. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

49. Authorization of Road Vacation (Tape 5)

(A) Supervisor Connolly said that Sarah Lane, LLC and Centex Homes submitted Rezoning Application RZ 1999-PR-039 to request approval of a 42 lot residential subdivision known as Brittany Parc. On May 24, 1999, the Board authorized the inclusion of Sarah Lane, Oak Avenue, Garret Avenue and 'A' Street in the application for rezoning. For development of the subject site to take place as proposed, these roadways must be vacated. Review of the rezoning and vacation request has been completed and a public hearing on the rezoning request will be scheduled for February 28, 2000. To facilitate public hearings on the rezoning request and the vacation request for the same day, the Board must authorize a public hearing today to allow the proper advertisement of the hearing for February 28, 2000.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the scheduling of a public hearing on the vacation of Sarah Lane, Oak Avenue, Garret Avenue and 'A' Street for February 28, 2000, at 4:30 p.m. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

50. New Public and Private Streets (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that the Zoning Ordinance and Public Facility Manual (PFM) requirements call for new public and private streets to be constructed to standards which, at times, seem contrary to environmental concerns. These standards are perhaps out of balance with such environmental goals as maximum tree savings and minimum land disturbance.

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

Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Bulova asked to amend the motion to refer this issue to the Tree Preservation Task Force, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

51. Improving Route 50 from Seven Corners to the Beltway (Tape 5)

On behalf of Supervisor Connolly and herself, Supervisor Gross said that traffic capacity on Route 50 between the Beltway and Seven Corners is increasingly a problem for commuters and adjoining neighborhoods. Under its current configuration and standards, there is a truck ban on Route 50. One major issue standing in the way of pursuing improvements to Route 50 is the Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT) requirement to lift the truck ban on Route 50 if it were ever improved. She said that she and Supervisor Connolly do not support lifting the truck ban.

Supervisor Gross said that it has recently been brought to her attention that it may be possible to add an additional lane in each direction on Route 50 without lifting the truck ban. Since there is sufficient right-of-way on Route 50, especially between Annandale Road and Seven Corners, one way to add capacity may be through a series of spot improvements or revenue sharing projects.

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

Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Bulova and asked to amend the motion that the Board have assurance in writing from VDOT that it will not lift the load limit subsequent to any such improvements, and this was accepted.

Following further discussion, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked to amend the motion to:

This was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.
