Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the effort requires the Board to indicate that it is aware of the project and that it supports it. He said that the trail is being supported with funds designated within Dranesville District.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board authorize the Chairman to sign the State grant application. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

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

44. THIRD ANNUAL PROSTATE HEALTH AWARENESS SYMPOSIUM (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins said that in cooperation with the Reston Community Center, the Reston Association, the Reston Citizens Association, and the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce, the American Cancer Society sponsored the Third Annual Prostate Health Awareness Symposium on June 24, 2000, at the Lake Anne Community Center in Reston.

Supervisor Hudgins noted that Dr. Janice Lee Arnold was the Program Chairperson and the guiding hand in the process leading up to the symposium. Dr. Arnold and the American Cancer Society arranged the symposium to make men aware that "prostate cancer often strikes without warning - but with early detection, and prompt medical care it can be managed, and even cured."

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board send a letter commending Dr. Arnold and the American Cancer Society for their efforts to reduce the risk of prostate cancer and to alert Fairfax County males to its dangers and the steps they can take to protect themselves from this disease.

Supervisor Hudgins referred to her written Board Matters and outlined the accomplishments of Ms. Winger. Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Wingert to appear before the Board to be recognized for her hard work and dedication to the Reston community and for her excellent leadership of the RA.

The child care facility will provide before and after school care for only the students enrolled in its education program. The church would like the school to be completed in time for September 2000 enrollment.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to simultaneously process the site plan in conjunction with Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 95-H-062-2. This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards and does not prejudice the consideration of the land use application in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

49. CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF THE SITE PLAN, PLAT, AND ANY OTHER ENGINEERING DOCUMENTS CONCURRENTLY WITH PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT/FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN APPLICATIONS PCA 86-C-029-8/FDP 86-C-029-04, PCA 88-C-066-4 FDP 88-C-66, PCA 1996-HM-044-2/FDP 1996-HM-044 (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Dulles Corner Properties, LLC seeks to gain approval for three office buildings on a 17.5 acre site encompassing the northern portion of Parcel 13, Parcel 23A, and the intervening and to be abandoned right-of-way associated with Old Horse Pen Road.

This year to kick off the start of the fair, Board Members and County staff took part in games and events during Sneak Peek.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board invite Ms. Chianese and the other staff who helped organize and carry out Sneak Peek to appear before the Board to be recognized for all of their hard work in the planning of the Sneak Peek events. Supervisor Frey seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

55. OAKTON BOYS' AAA BASEBALL TEAM WINS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly noted that in high school baseball there is no seventh inning stretch. The seventh inning is the last inning of the game. So when a team comes from behind in the seventh inning, they truly snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. In post season play leading up to the state championships, the Oakton Cougars had four seventh inning comebacks. The Oakton Cougers won the State AAA Baseball Championship.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that Board direct staff to invite the Oakton High School Baseball Team to appear before the Board to receive a certificate recognizing its achievement. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

56. W.T. WOODSON’S BOYS’ SOCCER TEAM WINS STATE FINALS (Tape 5)

On behalf of Supervisor Bulova and himself, Supervisor Connolly said that earlier this month the W.T. Woodson Cavaliers beat the Robinson Rams, 2-1 at the AAA Boys' Soccer State Tournament held in 90 degree heat at the University of Richmond Stadium. This marks the first time in Woodson's history that the boys' team has captured the state soccer crown.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite the members and coaches of the W.T. Woodson Cavaliers to appear before the Board at the earliest convenient date and be recognized for this outstanding athletic achievement. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

57. RETIREMENT OF AUBREY TARKINGTON AS SENIOR MANAGER OF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS FOR VIRGINIA POWER (Tape 5)

On behalf of Board Members, Supervisor Connolly announced that Aubrey Tarkington is retiring from his position as senior manager for external affairs for Virginia Power after 35 years. Mr. Tarkington has been an active and important member of the Fairfax County community since he moved here in 1989.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that Board direct staff to invite Mr. Tarkington to appear before the Board at a convenient date to be recognized for his 35 years of service on behalf of the citizens of Fairfax County. The Board seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting this issue was discussed. See Clerk's Summary Items CL#68 and CL#73.)

58. VIRGINIA CENTER (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Virginia Center site is approximately 10.38 acres of property located north of I-66, west of Nutley Street, and opposite the Vienna/Fairfax/GMU Metro Station.

This property is part of a larger holding that has been planned and zoned for a variety of multi-family, townhouse, office, and retail uses for many years. Despite the presence of the Vienna Metro Station, this area has not developed for office use as envisioned in the County's Plan. Office development is concentrating in key mixed-use areas of the County such as Merrifield, Tysons Corner, Fair Lakes/Fair Oaks, and the Toll Road Corridor. Recent attempts to increase the amount of non-residential development at the site to create a greater critical mass of office space and a hotel use have been opposed by area residents.

The property's location at the Vienna Metro Station presents an opportunity for additional housing within walking distance of the Metro, a significant increase in Metro ridership over office use, a significant reduction in site-generated daily vehicle trips, and a significant reduction in parking requirements. Based on the benefits of a residential development over commercial, it may be appropriate to consider multi-family residential development as an alternative land use at this location.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board:

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the Board discussed residential development near the Huntington Metro Station. See Clerk's Summary CL#74.)

59. FUTURE TYSONS CORNER RAIL STATIONS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that in 1994, the Board amended the Tysons Corner Plan after a lengthy review by a designated task force. The amendments to the Plan included changes based on the understanding that the Metro would be extended through Tysons and would include three rail stations. Recently, the Dulles Corridor Task Force, under the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, completed a study of the potential future rail station sites in Tysons Corner. This loop design showed six rail stations, three more than previously assumed under the approved Plan. Under the existing Plan, the three new stations are not necessarily permitted the densities provided at the three original stations. Given that the rail extension will be through Tysons in 2006, it would be helpful to know at what densities the land around the newly proposed stations should be developed.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Planning and Zoning to determine what the appropriate densities should be or how appropriate densities should be determined around the three new proposed rail stations in Tysons Corner. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to report with information regarding the Tysons Corner Plan to have rail at the existing sites, as to the effect if those provisions are extended to the additional three sites, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

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

Supervisor Kauffman said that the Kingstowne Residential Owners Corporation is requesting to add land area and a small addition to one of its recreation centers in the North Village of Kingstowne. The community would like to construct the expansion to the building this fall.

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to expedite Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA C-448-29, and Final Development Application FDP C-448-28 by setting the Planning Commission public hearing for the two applications on July 26, 2000, and the Board hearing on Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA C-448-29 to August 7, 2000, at 4 p.m. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation of this application by the Board and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

62. REQUEST FOR WAIVER OF THE FEES FOR THE SHOWMOBILE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman said that Lee District Park has sponsored an annual Independence Day celebration for more than 25 years. The celebration includes a variety of entertainment, food, community information, and a fireworks show. The event is a major focal point for the Lee District community and is supported by a dedicated group of volunteers. This year the celebration includes an expanded fireworks show in recognition of the Park Authority's fiftieth anniversary.

Supervisor Kauffman said that the entertainment is presented on the County's Showmobile, which the Park has used and paid for every year. In recognition of the contribution to the community spirit that this event brings, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board waive the fees associated with the use of the Showmobile for this community event. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

63. ALASKAN TRIP PHOTOS (Tape 5)

64. PROPOSED EXPANSION OF THE ROBINSON RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova stated that a petition for the expansion of the Robinson RPPD to include Rodney Court has been forwarded to the Department of Transportation. Although Rodney Court is more than 1500 feet from the entrance to the school, students consistently park their vehicles on this cul-de-sac.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to:

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

65. SCHEDULING OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 00-B-009 FOR KINGS PARK SHOPPING CENTER (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova stated that the Kings Park Shopping Center, located at the crossroads of Braddock, Rolling, and Burke Lake Roads, was built in the 1960s and serves as the Annandale-Springfield "town center" for the surrounding neighborhoods. It remained in the original owner’s hands until recently and still looks generally as it did when originally opened.

Supervisor Bulova said that First Washington, the new owner, in partnership with CVS and McDonald’s Corporation, has developed a revitalization plan for the shopping center that exceeds a mere facelift. As a first step, the existing McDonald’s would move out from its in line position with other storefronts and onto a free-standing pad with a drive-through window. This first step requires a special exception. Everything else that would follow is "by-right." If approved, the special exception would trigger redevelopment of the entire shopping center site.

Supervisor Bulova noted that for the last several months, the Kings Park Shopping Center Revitalization McDonald’s Special Exception Task Force has been meeting regularly regarding this application. The task force has worked with her office and is composed of representatives from the surrounding neighborhoods, the applicants, and merchants. County staff and Suzanne Harsel, Braddock District Planning Commissioner, evaluated the application and made recommendations. Except for a few details, the application is ready to proceed and is scheduled for a public hearing before the Planning Commission on June 28, 2000. To keep the process on track, the applicant would like to have the Board of Supervisors hearing before the August recess.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to schedule the public hearing to be held before the Board on Special Exception Application SE 00-B-009 for August 7, 2000. 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, which carried by unanimous vote.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

68. RECOGNITION OF MR. AUBREY TARKINGTON (Tape 6)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, this issue was discussed. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#57.)

Supervisor McConnell noted that she had planned to present a Board Matter regarding the retirement of Mr. Aubrey Tarkington, but that it had already been presented earlier in the meeting.

69. SOUTHWEST COUNTY MIDDLE SCHOOL (Tape 6)

Supervisor McConnell stated that the Fairfax County Public School system is in the process of building the Southwest County Middle School on Union Mill Road at the border between the Springfield District and Sully District. To maintain the building schedule and open the school when planned, the County must approve the grading plan by the middle of September 2000, and have the final plans completed by the middle of November 2000, when the project is scheduled to go to bid. Staff has indicated that these dates are realistically within the present work plan and load.

Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board request staff to continue to review the plans for the Southwest County Middle School with the objective of having the grading plan completed by the middle of September 2000 and the final plans completed with a target date of the middle of November 2000. Supervisor Frey seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

70. VIRGINIA OPERA AND COUNCIL OF THE ARTS GROUPS (Tape 6)

Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to include as a Consideration Item at the Carryover Review an additional $25,000 for the Virginia Opera. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

With reference to his written Board Matter on the subject, Supervisor Hyland stated that there is an opportunity for a significant residential development at a site that is now a private parking lot across from the Huntington Metro Station parking lot. The project is a proposal for a 400-unit residential development, but the only way the Board could consider it would require a proposed zoning ordinance amendment for a planned development district.

78. AUTHORIZATION OF AN ADDITIONAL PAYMENT TO ABJ ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED AND WEST*GROUP MANAGEMENT, LLC (Tape 7)

On July 26, 1999, the Board entered into a contract with ABJ Associates, Incorporated and West*Group Management, LLC, (the developers), to construct a portion of Stonecroft Boulevard. The Board had the plans for the road designed by an outside engineering firm and was allowing the developer to use the plans for the construction of the road. The design showed inaccurate elevations in the area where this portion of Stonecroft Boulevard was to tie into another section of Stonecroft Boulevard being constructed by another developer. The error was discovered after the curb and gutter was installed but before any paving. The cost of correcting the problem is estimated to be $42,000. Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board approve an amendment to the July 26, 1999, contract authorizing an additional maximum payment of $47,975 to the developer. This amendment must be approved as to form by the County Attorney. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

79. REQUEST OF THE BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS (BZA) TO RECONSIDER ITS ACCEPTANCE OF APPEAL APPLICATION A 2000-HM-010 BY EOP-RESTON TOWN CENTER, LLC (Tape 7)

In light of the provisions of Virginia Code § 15.2-2299 that give to the BZA the sole authority to administer and enforce proffered conditions and the longstanding practice of requiring all appeals of decisions regarding proffered conditions to be made to the Board of Supervisors, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board ask the BZA to reconsider its acceptance of Appeal Application A 2000-HM-010 by EOP-Reston Town Center, LLC, with respect to the appeal ground based on an alleged failure to satisfy proffered conditions. This amendment must be approved as to form by the County Attorney. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.
