40. NATIONAL TRAILS DAY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that on Sunday, June 4, 2000, the Fairfax County Park Authority and Fairfax Trails and Streams coordinated a hike along the route of the proposed Fairfax Cross County Trail in honor of National Trails Day. At designated locations along the route, the Park Authority unveiled markers that highlight the route of the proposed trail.

The Fairfax Cross County Trail, when completed, will stretch 31.5 miles from Lorton to Great Falls largely through parkland and following stream valley corridors. A 26.5 mile portion of the trail is already in place, and an additional 1.9 miles was approved for construction by the Park Authority as part of the 1998 Park Bond. Potential exists for federal funding to complete the remaining segments of the trail.

This weekend’s activities highlighted the benefits and potential of the Fairfax Cross County Trail and the benefits provided by preserving and protecting the stream valley corridors.

There was a brief discussion of this issue.

Chairman Hanley noted that the trail is not complete, nor is it fully funded.

41. ESTABLISHMENT OF A SUMMER YOUTH TRANSPORTATION PASS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Fairfax County Department of Transportation has been working with the Partnership for Youth and the Teen Centers on improving access to teen centers so that more teenagers have the opportunity to take advantage of these safe, positive environments, especially during the summer months when they are not in school. The Connector/RIB service to maximize use of Teen Centers and increased outreach and publicity effort has been expanded and modified. The Partnership has identified the cost of transportation as the largest remaining block for teens who would like to participate in Teen Center activities. The Partnership is looking for help in establishing a low-cost summer pass that would include all bus services, including Metro. The Partnership would subsidize these passes and coupons could be distributed at Teen Centers.

To explore the worthwhile goal of giving more teenagers access to Teen Centers through low-cost transportation passes, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to confer with representatives of all transit providers, Teen Centers, the Department of Transportation, and the Fairfax County Partnership for Youth, and other interested partners to explore the possibility of establishing a summer youth transportation pass and report on its feasibility at the next Board meeting. Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to report with the cost of providing passes and to include FASTRAN or a dial-a-ride provision, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Gross being out of the room.

42. MICHAEL LONG, SENIOR ASSISTANT COUNTY ATTORNEY RECEIVED LOCAL GOVERNMENT ATTORNEY'S (LGA) 2000 PUBLIC SERVICE AWARD (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly announced that Michael Long, Senior Assistant County Attorney, recently received LGA’s 2000 Public Service Award for an Outstanding Deputy or Assistant County, City, or Town Attorney. On April 7, 2000, Mr. Long was recognized for his "exemplary service as a senior assistant of the highest caliber" by the Local Government Attorneys of Virginia. Since 1984, Mr. Long has worked in the County Attorney's office serving Fairfax County on a variety of issues. In addition to serving as a resource to Fairfax County, Mr. Long is often approached by his colleagues throughout the Commonwealth because of his expertise in constitutional law, taxation, cable franchising, voting law, weapons and hunting regulations, special tax districts, and other subjects.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Long to appear before the Board to be recognized for the distinguished honor he recently received from the LGA. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

43. HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION (HJR) 276 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly stated that during the 1998 General Assembly session, Delegate Jim Scott introduced HJR 276 which was co-sponsored by Delegate Vince Callahan and Senator Janet Howell. The purpose of this bill was to create enhanced awareness of the importance of Tysons Corner to the economic progress of the Commonwealth and to focus attention on developing a consensus on interim transportation improvements that could be accomplished prior to the implementation of Metrorail service to and through Tysons Corner.

Supervisor Connolly said that HJR 276 led to the creation of a committee composed of local elected officials, staff from the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation as well as civic and business representatives from the Tysons Corner area. As a result of this committee, traffic signal optimization was advanced and completed, funding for $11 to $14 million of road improvements such as to Route 7 and Route 123 has been approved, signage and pedestrian issues have been addressed, as well as a plan for bus shelter placement. Collaboration between elected officials, citizens, staff, and representatives of the business community has resulted in specific actions that are beginning to improve traffic flow in and through Tysons Corner.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite Delegate Scott and members of his committee to appear before the Board at an appropriate time to brief the Board and the public on the activities of the HJR 276 Committee and the progress being made on interim transportation improvements in Tysons Corner. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

44. REQUEST TO SCHEDULE THE PUBLIC HEARING FOR JCE, INCORPORATED (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that JCE, Incorporated has filed a rezoning application on approximately 9.54 acres on Helena Drive and Center Street near Idylwood Road. The applicant proposes to rezone the property from the R-3 District to the PDH-3 District to develop 23 single family detached dwelling units at a density of 2.4 units per acre. The applicant has been working closely with planning staff and recently submitted a modified Conceptual Development Plan/Final Development Plan. To allow planning staff time to review the proposal, the Planning Commission public hearing has been deferred from June 22, 2000, to July 19, 2000. The applicant has requested a public hearing before the Board prior to the Board’s summer recess.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on *August 8, 2000. This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: *Later in the meeting, the Board corrected the public hearing date from August 8, 2000, to August 7, 2000. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#56.)

45. REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1998-SP-062 (Tape 6)

(A) Supervisor McConnell said that Centex Homes is in the process of purchasing 29 acres of land on Hooes Road near Rolling Road and plans to build a small subdivision to be known as "Presidential Hills." The Planning Commission heard this case on May 31, 2000. Centex Homes has a constrained building and purchase schedule that requires closing during the first part of July. This matter was originally scheduled to be heard by the Planning Commission last fall; however, the County asked for a delay to negotiate a better deal regarding affordable housing.

Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on Rezoning Application RZ 1998-SP-062 for Monday, June 26, 2000, at 3:30 p.m. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by unanimous vote.

46. SCHEDULING OF A PUBLIC HEARING FOR A SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION FILED BY THE DAMON HARWOOD COMPANY, INCORPORATED (Tape 6)

(A) Supervisor Frey said that the Damon Harwood Company has filed a special exception application to permit an increase in building height for property located at the intersection of Random Hills Road and Waples Mill Road. The applicant has been working with staff to identify appropriate road improvements.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on July 24, 2000. The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried unanimous vote.

47. PULTE HOME CORPORATION - LELAND ROAD AND BRADLEY ROAD (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey said that Pulte Home Corporation is filing a rezoning application for an assemblage of 70 parcels containing approximately 160 acres of land in the Centreville Farms area. The application proposes to include portions of the rights-of-way of Leland Road and Bradley Road, which are proposed to be vacated and abandoned to provide a new plan for coordinated development. Because of the County's interest in the right-of-way, the applicant must obtain consent from the Board for inclusion of these areas in the rezoning application. It is understood and acknowledged by the applicant that such consent does not prejudice Board consideration of the rezoning application or the vacation and abandonment in any way. Those matters will be decided on their merits at a later date.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of the rights-of-way for Leland Road (Route 1021) and Bradley Road (Route 1210) in the application for rezoning to be filed by Pulte, as generally identified on the tax maps marked Exhibits "A" and "B," as included in the written Board Matters.

48. WINCHESTER HOMES - CENTREVILLE FARMS REZONING APPLICATION (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey said that Winchester Homes is prepared to submit two rezoning applications for the parcels it proposes to develop in the Centreville Farms area. One rezoning application will include approximately 41.3724 acres of land north of Leland Road ("Centreville Farms North") and proposes to rezone the subject property from the R-1 District to the PDH-8 District. The other rezoning application will include approximately 40.9447 acres located south of Leland Road ("Centreville Farms South") and proposes to rezone the subject property from the R-1 District to the PDH-4 District. Winchester Homes has prepared Conceptual/Final Development Plans for the Centreville Farms North and Centreville Farms South assemblages which provide a revised road network that will better accommodate the proposed development of the properties under the newly adopted Centreville Farms Comprehensive Plan language. To facilitate redevelopment of the properties proposed for rezoning, Winchester Homes is seeking Board authorization to include portions of the existing right-of-way of Summit Street, Lamb Street and Shreve Street as part of Winchester's proposed rezoning applications.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board include approximately 2.8179 acres of Right-of-way adjacent to Tax Map Parcels 54-4 ((2)) 16, 17, 18, 55-1 ((2)) 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43 and Tax Map Parcels 55-3 ((2)) 44, 45, 46, 67, 68 and Tax Map Parcels 54-5 ((2)) 47 and 48 within the land area of the Winchester Homes, Incorporated/Centreville Farms North rezoning application and that the Board include approximately 2.0457 acres of right-of-way adjacent to Tax Map Parcels 55-3 ((2)) 154, 154A 155, 156, 158, 159, 160, 161, 162, 162A, 163, 164, 165 within the land area of the Winchester Homes, Incorporated/Centreville Farms South rezoning application. This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of the rezoning applications or future abandonment/vacation requests in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

49. FOREST EDGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Shrinking Structure team, from Forest Edge Elementary School, placed second in its division at the statewide Odyssey of the Mind competition on May 6, 2000, qualifying them for the World Finals at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, May 31 to June 3. Fifth-graders Benjamin Calacci, Ankur Desai, Peter Gudmundsen, Peter Knole, Neil Sobin and William Zeng, and fourth-grader Kit Parker were asked to take a piece of balsa wood, no larger than 1/8 by 1/8 inches, and using glue, create a weight-bearing structure itself weighing 15 grams. The structure needed to be 9 1/2 to 10 inches in height and shrink to 8 to 8 1/2 inches when weights were put on during the crushing process. The structure held 587 pounds.

Supervisor Hudgins said that fifth-graders Avi Baehr, Nathaniel Coffman, Alan Finckling, Katherine Fraser, and Bryon Smith and fourth-graders Amy Duncan and Colin Haas, also from Forest Edge Elementary School, finished in third place. The team known as Pest-aside presented an imaginative solution for devising a contraption to catch or scare away a team-created pest.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite the Forest Edge Elementary School students and their coaches to appear before the Board to receive its congratulations and thanks for representing Fairfax County at the State Finals of the Odyssey of the Mind competition with a special congratulations to the Shrinking Structure team who will represent the Commonwealth of Virginia at the World Finals at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.

Supervisor Hudgins encouraged citizens to visit both farmers’ markets this summer and fall.

51. LAND USE AND TRANSPORTATION SEMINARS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins expressed her appreciation to members of the Department of Planning and Zoning, Department of Transportation, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, Park Authority, Virginia Department of Transportation, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, and the Environmental Coordinator for their time and energy to make these seminars a success.

The quality of work was exceptional, the information shared was informative, and the seminars provided an opportunity for residents to voice their concerns and learn about important issues in the District.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board send a letter commending the various departments for their support of the Hunter Mill District seminars. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

52. SOUTH LAKES HIGH SCHOOL - STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AWARD PROGRAM (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that Comcast, the Cable franchise serving Reston residents, recently initiated a partnership with South Lakes High School, the Student Achievement Award Program. The program, available to high school students in the Comcast service areas of Prince William, Manassas, Manassas Park, and Reston, has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarship money to date. Student recipients receive a $1000 scholarship for intelligence, perseverance, and an outstanding work ethic, with particular emphasis on those students who have improved the most over the four years in high school. The community welcomes Comcast's support for public education and looks forward to seeing the program grow.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board send a letter commending Comcast for its community support through the Comcast Student Achievement Award program. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

53. NATIONAL GEOGRAPHY BEE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that Steven Young, a student from Hughes Intermediate School, participated in the recent National Geography Bee. Although he was not the award winner for the nation, he placed sixth.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite Steven Young and his principal to appear before the Board to be recognized for representing Fairfax County and the community at the National Georgraphy Bee. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

54. CREATION OF A TASK FORCE REGARDING THE DULLES CORRIDOR RAPID TRANSIT PROJECT (Tape 6)

(BACs) On behalf of Supervisor Mendelsohn and herself, Supervisor Hudgins said that the Preliminary Engineering and National Environmental Protection Act process for the Dulles Corridor Rapid Transit Project has begun. The process will provide opportunities for public input beginning summer 2000. An important part of this process will include issues surrounding land development and access for the rail stations. To appropriately incorporate citizens' input on station issues, a citizen task force is needed to review and make recommendations for amendments to the County's existing Comprehensive Plan.

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Hunter Mill District has three planned stations and the Dranesville District has one. The Dranesville station and one of the Hunter Mill stations impact the neighboring district. Therefore, the citizens task force will comprise citizens in the vicinity of each station with the appointments as follows:

Therefore, on behalf of Supervisor Mendelsohn and herself, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the:

Area Number of Representatives

Hunter Mill District 12

Dranesville District 4

At-Large-Chairman appointee 1

Town of Herndon 1

Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce 1

Herndon/Dulles Chamber of Commerce 1

Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion.

The question was called on the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

55. SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 00-H-016 (BRE/VCD ASSOCIATES LLC) (Tape 6)

(A) Supervisor Hudgins said that BRE/VCD Associates, LLC submitted a Special Exception application to convert one free standing building to two fast food restaurants, one with a drive-through window in the Village Center at Dulles. The proposed fast food restaurant, Baja Fresh, and drive-through fast food restaurant, Starbucks, will replace the vacated drive-through bank building. The Planning Commission public hearing is scheduled for July 19, 2000.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board approve an expedited public hearing date of August 7, 2000, at 4:30 p.m. This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any application conditions, regulations or adopted standards, and it does not prejudice the consideration of this application in any way. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by unanimous vote.

56. ADDITIONAL ACTION REGARDING JCE, INCORPORATED (Tape 6)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, action was taken regarding JCE, Incorporated. See Clerks Summary Item CL#44.)

Supervisor Connolly referred to his earlier Board Matter regarding scheduling a public hearing regarding JCE Incorporated and noted that the public hearing date should be August 7, 2000, instead of August 8, 2000.

57. RESTON TRIATHLON (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that for the last 17 years, the Reston Triathlon has held its event the weekend after Labor Day. This year the triathlon will be held on Sunday, September 10, 2000. Each year the bike race has started at Lake Audubon, looped past Reston Parkway, onto South Lakes Drive and back around to Lake Audubon. Until this year, the Reston Triathlon has had no problems coordinating the race with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Reston community and local businesses. This year, VDOT has informed the Reston Triathlon that additional safety precautions should be met by way of highway type signs on 4x4 breakaway posts and message boards. The Reston Triathlon does not disagree with the need to ensure safety to its participants and to citizens, however, the Reston Triathlon questions VDOT's request of signs and message boards. In the past, no additional signs were requested of the Reston Triathlon Committee, signs were made on brightly colored poster board and mounted on easels the morning of the event and the message boards were borrowed from VDOT.

Supervisor Hudgins said that with the help of the Reston Police Station, 20 spots were identified for the posted signs that would notify passersby of the event. The assessed cost for the signs is $5,500: $1,400 for 20 signs and posts; $2,000 for installation of each sign; and $2,000 for the removal of the signs. In addition, each sign location must be approved by Miss Utility. The cost to rent two message boards for a week is $1,000. The Reston Triathlon is a nonprofit organization and can not afford to spend $5,500 in preparation of the event and has not had to in previous years.

Supervisor Hudgins said that in similar past events, communities throughout the County have worked with various agencies, the Police Department, and VDOT to coordinate a successful event and only now does it appear that future events may be expected to spend additional costs not anticipated in the past. This may lead to the unfortunate cancellation of some longstanding events.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct the Chairman to send a letter to VDOT requesting that it work with the Reston Triathlon Committee in addressing VDOT's requests and to provide a resolution so the triathlon event can continue as it has during the past 17 years. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

58. RETIREMENT OF JUDY AZZARA, PRINCIPAL AT LOUISE ARCHER SCHOOL (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins announced the retirement of Judy Azzara, Principal at Louise Archer School.

62. Follow-up to Out-of-Turn Plan (OTPA) Amendment Requested on March 27, 2000 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that at its March 27 meeting, an OTPA was authorized to consider an eating establishment use as an optional recommendation for the property in Land Unit C of the Huntington Transit Development Area on a parcel identified as Tax Map 83-1 ((1)) 42.

Because the preliminary site plan from the applicant, Medieval Times, however, designates the site as two parcels, Supervisor Hyland moved that the OTPA be expanded to include Tax Map Number 83-1 ((1) 49A, and the portions of Land Units C and D that correspond to the subject area. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

63. Request that MS. Jean Van Devanter White Be Acknowledged by the Board (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

65. ADDITIONAL PUBLIC HEARING RELATED TO ABANDONMENT OF MADISON LANE (Tape 7)

(A) Supervisor Gross stated that a public hearing on the abandonment of Madison Lane is scheduled for later in the day. Because the abandonment will result in County ownership of a portion of this property, she said that an additional public hearing is necessary to provide for an ingress-egress easement for the Baileys Crossroads Volunteer Fire Department. This additional hearing should be concurrent with the public hearing for the abandonment, but it has not been advertised.

Accordingly, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board authorize the advertisement of a public hearing on the granting of an ingress-egress easement within a portion of Madison Lane to be held before the Board on June 26, 2000, at 4:30 p.m. She noted her intent to defer the abandonment public hearing currently scheduled for later in the afternoon so that the two hearings can be held concurrently. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the public hearing on the abandonment of Madison Lane was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#87.)

66. RECOGNITION OF MS. HELEN FITZGERALD FOR HER YEARS OF SERVICE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross announced that Ms. Helen Fitzgerald is retiring from the County after 23 years of service with the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board. She has become a nationally-recognized expert on the grieving process and issues surrounding crisis and death.

Accordingly, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Fitzgerald to appear before the Board at a date to be determined to be honored for her years of outstanding service to the County. Supervisor Gross noted that Ms. Fitzgerald would be retiring at the end of July. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Following an oral update by Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, without objection, the request was so ordered.

69. EXPANSION OF THE ROBINSON RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (Tape 7)

In reference to the problem of student parking on residential streets around Robinson Secondary School, Supervisor Bulova stated that she has forwarded to the Department of Transportation (DOT) the petition for the expansion of the RPPD on Wheatstone Drive from Gainsborough Drive to Allenby Road and Allenby Road from cul-de-sac end to cul-de-sac end. To proceed with the request, DOT needs Board approval to waive the minimum of 100 contiguous on-street parking spaces and the fees and to proceed expeditiously as possible.

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

Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

70. EXPANSION OF THE ANNANDALE RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (Tape 7)

In reference to the problem of student parking on residential streets around Annandale High School, Supervisor Bulova stated that she has forwarded to the Department of Transportation (DOT) the petition for the expansion of the RPPD on Newcastle Drive from Terrell Street to Heritage Drive. To proceed with the request, DOT needs Board approval to waive the fees and to proceed as expeditiously as possible.

 

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

Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

71. REQUEST FOR CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF THE APPLICATION FOR THE RELOCATION OF THE EMPLOYEES CREDIT UNION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova stated that the Fairfax County Employees Credit Union, currently located at Rust Road and Lee Highway in the City of Fairfax, has an application under review with the County to permit the relocation of its facility to west of the Fairfax Centre Shopping Center on Lee Highway. Because it is situated close to the eastern boundary of the Fairfax Centre Overlay District, Supervisor Bulova noted that this property has been the subject of countless land use suggestions, most of which are either too intense for the site or not compatible with the Comprehensive Plan.

Supervisor Bulova said that with the credit union application, there is a proposed use that is feasible for the location and would be a welcome addition to the Braddock District. She said that modifying the zoning has become more complicated than anticipated. As a result, additional time has been required and the public hearing to be held before the Planning Commission is scheduled for July 26, 2000. To keep the project on track, the applicant has requested concurrent processing.

Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff in the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to concurrently process the site plan, plat, and any other engineering documents concurrently with Rezoning Application RZ 00-B-013/Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 00-B-014/Special Exception Application SE-B-015/Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 95-B-018. She noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards, nor does it prejudice the consideration of this application in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

She said that it was an excellent program and very well attended, but that the speaker's podium was not illuminated. This is a continuing problem when the podium is turned to face the audience. While she acknowledged that the room was designed for Board meetings, she noted that with the heavy use of the Board Auditorium for seminars and presentations, having the keynote speaker, standing at the podium, shrouded in shadow is a real detraction.

Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to provide sufficient lighting for speakers using the podium and facing the audience. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to review the lighting for the whole area to ensure balanced lighting, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley suggested that the staff of Channel 16 work with the staff from the Facilities Management Division of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services on this issue.

Following further discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, the question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.

74. RETIREMENT OF MR. JOHN CASAGRANDE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova announced that she recently learned of the retirement of John Casagrande, Director of Bands for the W.T. Woodson High School.
