39. FLINT HILL UPPER SCHOOL CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF ROAD VACATION (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Flint Hill School filed a Special Exception Application (SE 99-PR-046) to seek approval for a new Flint Hill Upper School. The proposed 189,812 square foot facility will be built in phases and would serve secondary students in grades 9-12. Flint Hill is a private college preparatory day school. Completion of the new Upper School campus will allow Flint Hill to expand its program offerings and provide a broader range of academic and athletic activities to secondary students. The School is anxious to begin construction as soon as possible to ensure that, if approved, the new campus is able to open in September 2001. If site work is not begun this summer, the School will not be available to students at the beginning of that academic year.

Supervisor Connolly said that a Board public hearing date for this application has been set for May 8, 2000. The Special Exception Application includes a portion of the former alignment of Oakton Road in the Special Exception application that was authorized for inclusion in the application on the Board's own motion on January 10, 2000. The request for abandonment/vacation of the Oakton Road right-of-way and two small parcels owned by the Virginia Department of Transportation and used for stormwater management purposes was filed on February 16, 2000.

Supervisor Connolly noted that it would be desirable for Board action on the abandonment/vacation request to occur simultaneous with action on the Special Exception Application. To ensure that these two actions are concurrent, review of the abandonment/vacation requests relating to the Upper School will need to be expedited.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct:

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 nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

40. FLINT HILL SCHOOL CONCURRENT PROCESSING (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said that on January 21, 2000, the Flint Hill School filed a Special Exception Amendment Application (SEA 84-P-105-2).

The School is also seeking approval to increase daily enrollment from 625 to 700 full time students, add trailers for educational use, revise the parking lot layout, add a maintenance structure, and construct a new play-field and outdoor basketball courts.

Supervisor Connolly said that the proposed revisions at the existing school site are directly related to the proposed new Upper School that would serve secondary students in grades 9-12. The School is anxious to begin construction of the new school as soon as possible to ensure that, if approved, the new campus is able to open in September 2001.

Supervisor Connolly noted that the Board has scheduled a public hearing for the Special Exception Application for the new Upper School on May 8, 2000.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct:

This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

41. CONGRATULATIONS TO MS. MABEL HANKES, 101 YEARS OLD (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly announced that Ms. Mabel Hankes, a constituent living in the Greater Hillwood area near Falls Church, will be turning 101 years old on March 9, 2000. Ms. Hankes is not up to appearing before the Board, but on behalf of the Board, he wished her the happiest of birthdays, and best of health and happiness in the twenty-first century.

42. FAIRFAX COUNTY COMPLETE COUNT COMMITTEE FEE WAIVER (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly noted that the Board has affirmed its strong support for the need for a "complete count" of every person in Fairfax County. He said that the Fairfax Office of the Bureau of the Census has negotiated agreements to place Question Assistance Centers as well as Be Counted Sites in some Fairfax County libraries, schools, recreation centers, and community centers. The goal is to have 125 Question Assistance Centers in the County. It is anticipated that these centers would be used for a limited duration in early April. Because some of the County facilities assess a nominal fee for the use of a room in a building, the Bureau of the Census is faced with paying fees to the County to count the residents of the County.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to work with the various agencies, including the Fairfax County Public Schools to arrange a waiver of all fees for the Bureau of Census to use space in County facilities. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

43. INTERNATIONAL BUILDING SAFETY WEEK (Tape 4)

Supervisor Frey announced that this year, International Building Safety Week will be observed the week of April 2-8, 2000. To mark the event, the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services has scheduled several public outreach efforts in several local hardware and construction supply retail stores. In addition, the DPW&ES will honor a County resident with the 2000 Building Safety Community Partnership Award. The award was set up and first presented in 1998 to recognize individuals in the County who have made significant contributions to the promotion of the goal of building safety in Fairfax County. This year, the award will be presented to Mr. Robert "Jess" Hendrix during the Board meeting on April 3, 2000.

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

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

44. CHANTILLY HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS' GYMNASTICS TEAM WINS STATE GYMNASTICS CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE (Tape 4)

Supervisor Frey announced that the Chantilly High School Girls' Gymnastic Team won the State Gymnastics Championship Title. It is the Chargers' first State title in gymnastics in the school's history.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board waive the $150 fee associated with the use of the Showmobile for use at the Civitans Club's Annual Picnic to be held in July. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

47. BAILEYS DAY 2000 (Tape 4)

Supervisor Gross said that the Baileys Day Committee, a partnership between County agencies and several local community organizations, has reserved the County's showmobile for Baileys Day 2000. This year's festival will be held on Sunday, May 14, 2000.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board waive the fees associated with the use of the County showmobile for this important community event. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

48. SECOND SHOWMOBILE (Tape 4)

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to include in the Fiscal Year 2001 Budget, as a Consideration Item, the addition of a second Showmobile. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

49. INVENTORY OF HISTORIC COLLECTIONS (Tape 4)

Supervisor Gross said that under the auspices of the Park Authority, the County maintains a database of the County's vast collections of historic artifacts. She pointed out that it would be useful to know the contents of this inventory, especially because the majority of the collections remain in storage, as opposed to being on display. She said that as opportunities arise to display items to the public, she would appreciate knowing what artifacts may be available.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to report on the status of the collections inventory, and determine the feasibility of making the inventory list available to the Board Members' offices. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

50. SPRINGDALE RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (Tape 4)

51. EXPEDITED PROCESSING OF ENGINEERING PLANS FOR BRADDOCK/TWINBROOK ASSEMBLAGE (REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1999-BR-058 AND PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 78-A-050) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova stated that on February 7, 2000, the Board approved Rezoning Application RZ 1999-BR-058 in conjunction with Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 78-A-050. With the Board of Zoning Appeals' actions on February 22, the final approvals are in place to allow the Braddock/Twinbrook assemblage to proceed. To meet the contractual deadlines, the developer has requested expedited processing of the subdivision plans.

Supervisor Bulova noted that with more than a decade of pressure to develop this quadrant with something other than the low density residential development that was spelled out in the Comprehensive Plan, she was pleased to assist in moving the appropriate development forward. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct staff in the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to expeditiously process the engineering plans for the Braddock/Twinbrook development. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

52. FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2001 PROPOSED BUDGET CONSIDERATION ITEM: FUNDING OF THE NORTHERN VIRGINIA CONSERVATION TRUST (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova stated that the 1999 Report of the Environmental Quality Advisory Council recommended that the Board enter into public/private partnerships that would enable private entities to acquire land and easements to protect forests and other natural resources. This recommendation gets to the heart of the challenge facing the County - balancing the fast pace of development with the need to preserve and protect open space areas.

Supervisor Bulova said that a public/private partnership with the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust (formerly the Fairfax Land Preservation Trust) enables the County to further its goal and meet this public need without creating new County positions. To accelerate the conservation activities of the trust, she moved that the Board direct staff to add a Consideration Item in the amount of $300,000 in the FY 2001 Budget for the following:

Supervisor Bulova stated that the County's funding of the trust would be partially matched with approximately $75,000 in anticipated contributions in the trust in FY 2001.

Supervisor Bulova further moved that the Board add a Consideration Item to assist the trust with eliminating the balance of a startup loan from the Park Authority made in 1994. The loan balance is $38,0000.

Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley clarified that the two land specialists would work for the trust and would not be part of County staff. Funding for the specialists would be a one-time contribution to allow the trust to begin. Afterwards the trust would seek additional funding.

Following discussion, Supervisor Mendelsohn noted that staff is responding to a Board Matter he raised at a previous meeting in relation to the tax issue and he suggested that any funds that are raised in relation to that matter might be something that could be used to fund this item.

After reminding the Board that she had raised some conservation easement items at a previous meeting, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to present the responses to these related items to the Board in the March timeframe. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

The question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

53. OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT REQUESTED FOR RICHMOND HIGHWAY REVITALIZATION CORRIDOR: SUB-UNIT C-1 (Tape 5)

With reference to his written Board Matter on the subject, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board authorize an Out-of-Turn Plan amendment of the property designated in the Comprehensive Plan as the Woodlawn Community Business Center Area Sub-Unit C1 for the purpose of considering a change from commercial to residential uses at 4-5 dwelling units per acre.

Supervisor Hyland called to the Board's attention a resolution recently approved by the Mount Vernon Council requesting that improvements be made to Collingwood Road between Riverside Road and Fort Hunt Road.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that this issue be referred to staff, in coordination with Virginia Department of Transportation staff, for review and recommendation as to how safety improvements may be planned and implemented both for the short and long terms for Collingwood Road between Riverside Road and Fort Hunt Road. He noted how dangerous this road is. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

60. SOUTH COUNTY CENTER (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman said that this week the rezoning application for the South County Center will be filed. A portion of the site is within the Richmond Highway Commercial Revitalization District (CRD). If the entire site were within the CRD, the rezoning application would automatically receive expedited processing. Furthermore, the applicant would also be entitled to concurrent processing of the site plan. However, it is unclear whether those sites partially within the DRD receive these benefits automatically.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to:

This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on the rezoning application by the Board and does not relieve the applicant/owner from compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

61. FLEA MARKETS (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to Admin 7, which had been deferred from earlier in the meeting.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board:

Supervisor Frey seconded the motion.

Supervisor Connolly noted that his motion incorporated Supervisor Mendelsohn's earlier comments regarding controls on the compensation.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to examine this in terms of a phased approach, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to include information about B-1 and the possible future uses for it. One option that may be available is expanding the Government Center if there are future space needs. The requested information should include a cost comparison of building new space on Land Bay B-1 versus an estimate of an expansion of the Government Center in terms of cost and inconvenience and the other relevant factors. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley stated for the record that no one is suggesting an expansion in either case now; the estimate is for a very long term view.

With reference to Admin 7, Supervisor Gross reminded the Board that the Land Bay B-1 site was included as security for the trust and financing instruments that permitted the County to purchase the Herrity and Pennino Buildings and related properties from the developer. To transfer any such building site to the Public Schools, the County will have to remove the property from the control of those instruments. She noted that she was advised by the County Attorney that whether or not the transfer goes forward, it is a good idea for the County to remove that property from the control of those instruments.

Accordingly, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the County Executive to review this situation and return with his recommendations on how the proposed building site could be removed from the trust and financing instruments so that the property will be available for transfer. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.
