(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#81.)

36. CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 00-D-019 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the Holladay Corporation is the applicant for Special Exception Application SE 00-D-019 to build a cluster development of ten single family dwellings on property along Lewinsville Road in McLean. The property to be developed is located at Tax Map number 29-1((1))51 and 51A. He noted that the applicant continues to work diligently with the McLean community on this project to increase tree save and to connect a significant number of trails in the Lewinsville Road corridor. The applicant has spent valuable time on these issues with the community and would benefit from concurrent processing of its plans to move this project forward as soon as possible.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services and the Department of Planning and Zoning to proceed with concurrent processing of this application. This motion does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of any and all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards and does not constitute support by the Board for the special exception application in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

37. DISPOSAL OF HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn pointed out that prior to the economic downturn of the early 1990s, Fairfax County offered citizens the opportunity to periodically bring hazardous wastes such as paints, solvents, and pesticides to designated locations in each supervisor district. This program supplemented the ongoing Hazardous Waste Program operated by the Solid Waste Disposal and Recovery Resource Division of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services.

As a result, there are currently only two locations where citizens may dispose of such items. These locations are the I-66 Transfer Station on West Ox Road and the I-95 Sanitary Landfill in Lorton. Both facilities are open for the disposal of residential hazardous waste for half days on Thursdays and Fridays and from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturdays.

Supervisor Mendelsohn pointed out that with a land area of 399 square miles, it is advisable from an environmental standpoint for Fairfax County to offer its citizens the opportunity to dispose of hazardous waste at locations closer to their homes. Many citizens will not take the time to make the trip to the two existing collection points to dispose of a few paint cans or leftover solvents from a household project. Often these items collect in garages and basements and finally end up in the weekly trash pickup or are poured down the drain or emptied into backyards. He suggested an annual collection day (in each supervisor district) would be beneficial.

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

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to give staff flexibility regarding the annual pick-up day in each supervisor district, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Frey asked to amend the motion to direct staff to include utilization rates when the stations were previously open, and this was accepted.

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

He added that there will be a business expo, craft vendors, food vendors, amusement rides, three stages of entertainment and a free hands-on children's art area.

Supervisor Mendelsohn invited all to attend.

40. MOUNT OLIVE BAPTIST CHURCH (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey said that the Mount Olive Baptist Church has filed a rezoning and special exception applications to rezone and add land area and to subject the entire church site to a special exception. The application proposes to increase the size of the church sanctuary, build an educational wing to be used for Sunday School classes and a weekday pre-school, to add administrative space, and to allow temporary trailers to be utilized during construction. A portion of the property will be available for recreational uses associated with the church and/or the community until such time as the land may be needed for additional structures or parking. The applications are scheduled to be heard by the Planning Commission on June 14, 2000. The applicant has requested that the Board authorize concurrent processing of the site plans.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to process the subdivision and site plans concurrently with the consideration of Rezoning Application RZ 00-Y-001 and Special Exception Application SE 00-Y-004. The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

The variety and quality of the acts is a reflection of Fairfax County's diversity and community spirit.

Supervisor Connolly invited the Board and the public to join him for opening night on June 1, 2000, and throughout the summer for this community celebration of the arts.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting this issue was discussed again. See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#49.)

43. EXPEDITED AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR WEST*GROUP MANAGEMENT LLC - PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 92-P-001-2 AND SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 98-P-051 (Tape 6)

(A) Supervisor Connolly said that West*Group Properties, LLC is the owner of a 42-acre parcel of land known as the Old Springhouse Road Land Bay. Capital One Financial Corporation will be acquiring 28 acres of the land bay to develop approximately 1.1 million square feet of office. The site will allow Capital One to consolidate its Northern Virginia offices into Tysons Corner. West*Group has already dedicated land in the Old Springhouse Road Land Bay for use as a future Metro station. Upon extension of rail through Tysons Corner, the subject site's location will provide employees of Capital One with an easily accessible Metro station.

Supervisor Connolly said that Capital One is on a strict development schedule that will require closing in the year 2000 with the land use cases complete by the end of October 2000.

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

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 eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

44. NATIONAL CAPITAL CHAPTER OF THE AMERICAN RED CROSS CELEBRATES NINETY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that in 1989 the American Red Cross chapter serving Fairfax County was closed. Since February of 1989 the National Capital Chapter located in the District of Columbia (DC), has served Fairfax. On the May 15, 2000, the National Capital Chapter celebrated 95 years of service to the people of DC.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives of the National Capital Chapter of the American Red Cross to appear before the Board to receive a certificate of appreciation marking its ninety-fifth anniversary. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

45. TYSONS TELECOM CENTER LP (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that Tysons Telecom Center LP recently submitted a special exception application to permit a telecommunications center on property zoned I-5 located on Spring Hill Road in Tysons Corner. This facility will provide voice, image, and data Internet connectivity for Tysons with little traffic impact. The Planning Commission's public hearing is scheduled for September 21, 2000. The applicant requests concurrent processing of the site plan so construction can begin this calendar year.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to concurrently process the site plans for Special Exception Application SE 00-P-020. This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

46. CONSIDERATION ITEM AT CARRYOVER - SACRAMENTO NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman said that as a part of the Board's recent budget action, it approved funds for land acquisition and the planning of what will ultimately be the permanent Sacramento Neighborhood Center. Until such time as this permanent home is realized, County staff will soon be opening the door on a storefront operation in the Sacramento Shopping Center at the intersection of Route One and Sacramento Drive.

Supervisor Kauffman said that the Center will have a special focus on neighborhood youth. Supervisor Kauffman pointed out that to get full value out of this effort, there is a need for funding of two positions (one full time and the other part time) to ensure proper coordination and use of the center by the community, local police, and Fairfax County Human Services personnel.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to include as a Consideration Item at Carryover an amount not to exceed $60,000. This funding would support a Request for Proposal process for a community-based organization to provide the staffing. Chairman Hanley and Supervisor Hyland jointly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct the County Executive to review this issue to determine if existing personnel could be re-deployed, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

47. GIRL POWER PROGRAM (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman noted that the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board conducts several Girl Power programs for 9- to 14-year-olds in County schools and community centers. Based on the national Girl Power public education campaign launched in 1996, this substance abuse prevention program helps give girls the confidence to resist negative peer pressure. On Wednesday, June 28, 2000, Alcohol and Drug Services will host its first annual Girl Power conference at Mount Vernon Woods Elementary School.

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

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

48. E-MAIL AND WEBSITE ADDRESS TO BE INCLUDED IN THE WEEKLY AGENDA (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that on the back page of the Weekly Agenda, contact information is provided for each of the 10 Members of the Board. That information, however, does not presently include e-mail or website addresses. In fact, nowhere on the publication does it mention the County's main website address.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to add to the Weekly Agenda the e-mail and website addresses for each Supervisor, and the County website address, along with directions on how to find out more information on Fairfax County government through the website. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

Supervisor Hudgins asked to amend the motion to include that the Board direct staff to be sure that e-mail addresses are included on publications, and this was accepted.

Supervisor Gross said that for more than a year, the Pine Ridge Park Watch has proudly served the County, ensuring that Pine Ridge Park is a safe place for all citizens. She added that this innovative program is now expanding Countywide, taking the Neighborhood Watch concept to the parks and trails.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives of the Pine Ridge Park Watch, along with the many individuals who have been instrumental in the founding of the Fairfax County Park Watch, to appear before the Board at the June 5, 2000, meeting to be thanked for their efforts, and to share the details of this exciting new program.

She noted for the record that the inclusion of these streets within the pending rezoning application has been reviewed by and has the support of the Virginia Department of Transportation. As in all cases of matters such as this, the passage of this motion shall in no way be deemed to prejudice or be construed as an endorsement of the pending rezoning by the Board. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

Currently RDPC is working with the Park Authority and other governmental agencies to identify viable sites for a dog park in Reston. RDPC also works within the community to promote responsible dog ownership and to publicize the need for off-leash areas.

Supervisor Hudgins said that RDPC has initiated the process to start an off-leash dog area by forwarding to the Park Authority site recommendations as a basis for identifying an off-leash dog area. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct the Park Authority to review the site recommendations made by the RDPC and proceed to initiate an additional off-leash dog area. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Gross asked to amend the motion to request the Park Authority to proceed expeditiously on the identification of other areas in the County suitable for dog parks, and this was accepted.

He stated his understanding that truckers use this area as a layover stop on weekends and during the week.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#81.)

36. CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 00-D-019 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the Holladay Corporation is the applicant for Special Exception Application SE 00-D-019 to build a cluster development of ten single family dwellings on property along Lewinsville Road in McLean. The property to be developed is located at Tax Map number 29-1((1))51 and 51A. He noted that the applicant continues to work diligently with the McLean community on this project to increase tree save and to connect a significant number of trails in the Lewinsville Road corridor. The applicant has spent valuable time on these issues with the community and would benefit from concurrent processing of its plans to move this project forward as soon as possible.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services and the Department of Planning and Zoning to proceed with concurrent processing of this application. This motion does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of any and all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards and does not constitute support by the Board for the special exception application in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

37. DISPOSAL OF HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn pointed out that prior to the economic downturn of the early 1990s, Fairfax County offered citizens the opportunity to periodically bring hazardous wastes such as paints, solvents, and pesticides to designated locations in each supervisor district. This program supplemented the ongoing Hazardous Waste Program operated by the Solid Waste Disposal and Recovery Resource Division of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services.

As a result, there are currently only two locations where citizens may dispose of such items. These locations are the I-66 Transfer Station on West Ox Road and the I-95 Sanitary Landfill in Lorton. Both facilities are open for the disposal of residential hazardous waste for half days on Thursdays and Fridays and from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturdays.

Supervisor Mendelsohn pointed out that with a land area of 399 square miles, it is advisable from an environmental standpoint for Fairfax County to offer its citizens the opportunity to dispose of hazardous waste at locations closer to their homes. Many citizens will not take the time to make the trip to the two existing collection points to dispose of a few paint cans or leftover solvents from a household project. Often these items collect in garages and basements and finally end up in the weekly trash pickup or are poured down the drain or emptied into backyards. He suggested an annual collection day (in each supervisor district) would be beneficial.

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

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to give staff flexibility regarding the annual pick-up day in each supervisor district, and this was accepted.

40. MOUNT OLIVE BAPTIST CHURCH (Tape 6)

A portion of the property will be available for recreational uses associated with the church and/or the community until such time as the land may be needed for additional structures or parking. The applications are scheduled to be heard by the Planning Commission on June 14, 2000. The applicant has requested that the Board authorize concurrent processing of the site plans.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to process the subdivision and site plans concurrently with the consideration of Rezoning Application RZ 00-Y-001 and Special Exception Application SE 00-Y-004. The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way.

West*Group has already dedicated land in the Old Springhouse Road Land Bay for use as a future Metro station. Upon extension of rail through Tysons Corner, the subject site's location will provide employees of Capital One with an easily accessible Metro station.

Supervisor Connolly said that Capital One is on a strict development schedule that will require closing in the year 2000 with the land use cases complete by the end of October 2000.

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

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 eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

44. NATIONAL CAPITAL CHAPTER OF THE AMERICAN RED CROSS CELEBRATES NINETY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY (Tape 6)

On the May 15, 2000, the National Capital Chapter celebrated 95 years of service to the people of DC.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives of the National Capital Chapter of the American Red Cross to appear before the Board to receive a certificate of appreciation marking its ninety-fifth anniversary. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

45. TYSONS TELECOM CENTER LP (Tape 6)

The applicant requests concurrent processing of the site plan so construction can begin this calendar year.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to concurrently process the site plans for Special Exception Application SE 00-P-020. This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

46. CONSIDERATION ITEM AT CARRYOVER - SACRAMENTO NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman said that as a part of the Board's recent budget action, it approved funds for land acquisition and the planning of what will ultimately be the permanent Sacramento Neighborhood Center. Until such time as this permanent home is realized, County staff will soon be opening the door on a storefront operation in the Sacramento Shopping Center at the intersection of Route One and Sacramento Drive.

Supervisor Kauffman said that the Center will have a special focus on neighborhood youth. Supervisor Kauffman pointed out that to get full value out of this effort, there is a need for funding of two positions (one full time and the other part time) to ensure proper coordination and use of the center by the community, local police, and Fairfax County Human Services personnel.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to include as a Consideration Item at Carryover an amount not to exceed $60,000. This funding would support a Request for Proposal process for a community-based organization to provide the staffing. Chairman Hanley and Supervisor Hyland jointly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct the County Executive to review this issue to determine if existing personnel could be re-deployed, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

47. GIRL POWER PROGRAM (Tape 6)

On Wednesday, June 28, 2000, Alcohol and Drug Services will host its first annual Girl Power conference at Mount Vernon Woods Elementary School.

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

She noted for the record that the inclusion of these streets within the pending rezoning application has been reviewed by and has the support of the Virginia Department of Transportation. As in all cases of matters such as this, the passage of this motion shall in no way be deemed to prejudice or be construed as an endorsement of the pending rezoning by the Board.

Supervisor Hudgins said that RDPC has initiated the process to start an off-leash dog area by forwarding to the Park Authority site recommendations as a basis for identifying an off-leash dog area. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct the Park Authority to review the site recommendations made by the RDPC and proceed to initiate an additional off-leash dog area.
