Chairman Hanley explained that a Community of Promise is a town, city, or county that commits to fulfilling all Five Promises for, and with, children and youth where they live. She noted that in January 2000 the County was designated a Community of Promise due, in large part, to the hard work of the dedicated staff of Volunteer Fairfax. It coordinates nationally with America's Promise and works locally with Fairfax Partnership for Youth, 200 other youth-friendly community organizations, and County Schools to encourage mentoring, tutoring, and youth service. Therefore, she moved that the Board formally acknowledge its support in

Without objection, it was so ordered.

23. CLASS SIZE REDUCTION FUNDS (Tape 4)

The County's E-gov program was one of 20 government entities and one of two local governments that were selected to participate in the conference's "real world" solution center and receive a "Pioneer" award from the conference.

Chairman Hanley noted that a copy of a congratulatory letter from US Vice-President Al Gore to her was attached to the aforementioned memorandum. She indicated that she did not have the original letter and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to search for the original and provide it to her. Without objection, it was so ordered.

27. COBRA TRACK CLUB (CTC) ACTIVITIES (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley shared with the Board a copy of a letter from Darryl E.

It competed in the recent Virginia Commonwealth Games and performed very well. Chairman Hanley circulated a photograph of the club.

28. OPPORTUNITIES, ALTERNATIVES, AND RESOURCES (OAR) (Tape 4)

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to add as a Consideration Item continued funding of $37,656.77 in the Carryover Review.

A recent issue of the Falls Church News-Press reported that the Falls Church City Manager has brought this issue to the attention of the Falls Church City Council and had remarked that "Fairfax County and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority that runs the Metro may be moving to put air rights above its West Falls Church Metro station out to bid with the idea of future, dense commercial and residential development above the site." He added that while this is not accurate, rumors abound. In addition, the City of Falls Church has been planning dense development at the west end of its boundaries which would have a significant impact on the County residents in the surrounding area.

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that these issues, and others which affect both Fairfax County and the City of Falls Church, should be addressed by the Fairfax County/Falls Church Committee and that such a meeting should take place in the near future to enhance communications between the two governing bodies. He said that such a meeting would be especially valuable at this time when the City of Falls Church has a new mayor.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct the County Executive, in cooperation with Committee Chair Supervisor Gross, to make every attempt to schedule a meeting of the Fairfax County/Falls Church Committee for a date in October or November of 2000, or as soon thereafter as possible, in coordination with the Supervisors who are members of that committee, and to report his progress in that undertaking to the Board at its August 7, 2000, meeting. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

32. METROACCESS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross noted that issues related to the effectiveness of MetroAccess were brought before the Board late last year. It has since been reported that new equipment and new computer software would hopefully stabilize the system and provide an acceptable level of service. She said that she was recently contacted by a constituent who not only reported experiencing similar problems, such as facing unpredictable and exceedingly long waits, but that the problems continue to be widespread.

Supervisor Gross said that the County ought to be at a point where it can now determine whether increases in performance have been achieved, or if there are still serious problems in service to address.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report with an update on the status of improvements to the MetroAccess system, and on the changes which have or have not been achieved in the level of service. Without objection, it was so ordered.

There was a brief discussion of this item.

33. CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF THE SITE PLAN, PLAT, AND ANY OTHER ENGINEERING DOCUMENTS WITH THE SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION FILED BY BELL ATLANTIC (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that Bell Atlantic has submitted a special exception application for the existing telecommunications switching station facility located at 2516 Horsepen Road, Herndon. This expansion is needed to handle the increased demand for telecommunications access. The proposed expansion will allow Bell Atlantic to meet the forecasted demand of the surrounding community for data and phone lines used for cellular, paging, and computer access for home and business users.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to process the site plan, plat, and any other engineering documents concurrently with this special exception application. 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 this application in any way. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

 

34. INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1999-PR-045 (VIVIAN JOHNSON) (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly announced his intent later in the meeting, at the appropriate time, to defer the public hearing on Rezoning Application RZ 1999-PR-045 until August 7, 2000, at 3 p.m.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#63.)

35. INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1999-PR-060 (RIVER TOWERS BUILDING NUMBER THREE JOINT VENTURE) (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly announced his intent later in the meeting, at the appropriate time, to defer the public hearing on Rezoning Application RZ 1999-PR-060 until August 7, 2000, at 3 p.m.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#73.)

36. REQUEST FOR POLICY TO ADDRESS AFTER-HOUR PHONE CALLS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that it has come to his attention that citizens using the Citizens Handbook to contact County offices after-hours, weekends, and holidays receive inconsistent responses. Some after-hours messages invite callers to leave messages in various languages. Others provide a menu of choices of recorded information as well as the opportunity to request mailings. Still others explain that the office is closed but advise calling another number in an emergency. Then there are those offices that provide the caller with only the business hours and some do not answer at all.

Supervisor Connolly noted that the responses do not necessarily correspond to the potential for the office or agency to have to respond to a situation or incident during after-hours. Many of the citizens know to call the police non-emergency number for help in unusual situations, but there are those who would think it reasonable to call regular County numbers after hours and expect to get help or information. A Policy that standardized the response after-hours, especially for those offices with a high likelihood for after-hours response, would be helpful.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to develop a Countywide Policy for after-hours phone calls that better standardizes the situation and the messages that citizens hear. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

37. REQUEST FOR WAIVER OF APPLICATION FEES ASSOCIATED WITH THE SITE PLAN SUBMISSION REGARDING THE HOOES ROAD PARK (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman said that the Fairfax County Park Authority and the Springfield Youth Club (SYC) have been working together for considerable time to complete a public-private agreement to revitalize the Hooes Road Park in the Lee District. The renovation includes the re-grading of existing fields, installation of new fields, lighting, landscaping, increased parking, et cetera to improve the current park and make the facility more usable. Currently, they are prepared to submit site plans to begin the project.

SYC is a community-based, non-profit youth athletic association with no ties to any religious organization. The SYC is also tax exempt in Virginia, as approved by the Virginia General Assembly during its last session.

In light of the immense public benefit of providing more usable recreation fields for youth leagues and the substantial financial contribution SYC is pledging to the improvements, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board waive the application fees associated with site plan submission. 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. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

38. SCHEDULING OF A PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING A BAN ON THROUGH TRUCK TRAFFIC ON FLAT ROCK ROAD BETWEEN FLEET DRIVE AND BEULAH STREET (Tape 6)

(A) Supervisor Kauffman said that residents of the Franconia Commons Community have requested consideration for a ban on through truck traffic on Flat Rock Road between Fleet Drive and Beulah Street.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on October 16, 2000, to consider a ban on through truck traffic on Flat Rock Road between Fleet Drive and Beulah Street. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

39. CONCURRENT AND SIMULTANEOUS PROCESSING FOR PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT AND FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA/CDPA/FDPA 95-L-060 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman said that SPH Springfield Station, LLC has filed a Proffered Condition Amendment and Final Development Plan Amendment Application which is referenced as PCA/CDPA/FDPA 95-L-060. The applicant is the owner and manager of Springfield Station, which is a 631 unit rental community located in proximity to the Springfield Mall and the Springfield Metro Station. While there is sufficient parking on the property, the parking is not equally distributed among the buildings. As a result, some tenants are unable to park in proximity to their residence, which is inconvenient, especially at night.

Supervisor Kauffman noted that the applicant has proposed that the existing tennis court and 18 parking islands be deleted and replaced with 42 parking spaces and a car care area for tenant use. This solution has been favorably received by tenants as demonstrated by a survey taken by the applicant. Given the relatively minor nature of this request, the applicant is anxious to begin the processing of a site plan. The applicant understands that the processing of the site plan will be at its own financial risk and that a motion for concurrent processing does not indicate endorsement of the application. In addition, the applicant fully intends to meet with additional members of the Springfield Station community as well as the Lee District Land Use Committee.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to accept for concurrent and simultaneous processing a site plan and any other plans or drawings as may be necessary in conjunction with PCA/CDPA/FDPA 95-L-060. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

40. ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATION ITEM FOR CARRYOVER - FUNDING FOR THE MONDLOCH I HOMELESS SHELTER (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to include as a Consideration Item for the Carryover Review funding for the Mondloch I Homeless Shelter in Lee District. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

41. INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2000-SU-004 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey announced his intent to defer later in the meeting at the appropriate time the public hearing on Rezoning Application RZ 2000-SU-004 until September 25, 2000, at 3 p.m.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, this public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#70.)

42. CENTEX HOMES - SUMMIT DRIVE REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2000-SU-012 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey stated that Centex Homes has submitted Rezoning Application RZ 2000-SU-012 for approximately 71acres of land north of Route 29 and west of the Fairfax County Parkway. The application proposes to rezone the subject property from an R-1 District to a PHD-4 District. The applicant has held several meetings with the adjacent Willowmeade community and with other community groups since the application was filed. As a result of these meetings, the applicant has made significant revisions to the internal road network serving the community, which will entail relocation of the main spine road outside the existing right-of-way of Summit Drive, north of Route 29. To accommodate this redesign and to allow the former right-of-way to be included in the application, the applicant is requesting that the Board authorize the inclusion of a 1.36448-acre portion of the right-of-way of Summit Drive in Rezoning Application RZ 2000-SU-012.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of approximately 1.36448 acres of the right of way of Summit Drive, bisecting Tax Map Parcel 55-4-((1))-12 and terminating at Tax Map Parcel 55-4-((1))-17, within the land area of Rezoning Application RZ 2000-SU-012. He noted that 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 application or future abandonment/vacation request in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

43. DEEPWOOD VETERINARY CLINIC (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey stated that Deepwood Veterinary Clinic has filed a special permit application to allow a veterinary clinic on six acres of land on Ordway Road. This veterinary clinic will replace the long-standing business being vacated in the middle of the Little Rocky Run community. The Board of Zoning Appeals' hearing is scheduled for mid September and the applicant has requested the authorization of concurrent processing of the site plan(s) with the special permit review so that it can relocate to the new facilities as soon as possible.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to process the necessary site and subdivision plan(s) concurrently with the consideration of Special Permit Application SP 00-Y-040. The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

44. FOLLOW UP ON PERSONAL PROPERTY TAX ISSUE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey reminded the Board that on September 27, 1999, he had presented a Board Matter regarding a call from a constituent who had fallen behind in his payment of personal property taxes. The constituent contacted the Department of Taxation and developed a payment schedule. Unfortunately, County rules and regulations prohibited the issuance of a decal because the taxes had not been paid in full. Supervisor Frey had asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review this situation to determine a resolution and report with its findings. He stated his understanding that this issue had never been resolved, but the constituent received his decal once the taxes were paid in full.

Supervisor Frey stated that he has now received a call from another constituent in the same predicament. Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the staff of the Department of Tax Administration to review this situation again for possible resolution of this Catch-22 situation. Without objection, it was so ordered.

45. ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING THE PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, CHAPTER 7 (CENTRAL ABSENTEE VOTER ELECTION PRECINCTS), ARTICLE 2 (SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT) (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell announced that the 3:30 p.m. public hearing to consider amending the County Code relating to election precincts in the Springfield District would be cancelled.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting this public hearing was formally cancelled. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#69.)

46. OWNERSHIP OF ABANDONED CEMETERY LOT NEAR CHANCELLOR WAY (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell stated that she was recently contacted by a constituent who had a tree from an abandoned cemetery lot adjacent to her home fall on her property. She said that staff attempts to locate the owner of the property were unsuccessful and tax records did not indicate an owner.

Because the Park Authority owns the land abutting three sides of this property, Supervisor McConnell moved that the County Executive initiate an investigation into the property ownership of this property, located at Tax Map 89-4-006-Lot X, located near 7516 Chancellor Way, and if none can be found, to take the necessary steps to acquire this property and turn it over to the Park Authority. Following a brief discussion, Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

47. TOWING (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell reminded the Board that several years ago it created a commission to draw up the present towing agreement between the Police Department and towing and recovery companies in the County. She reported that the contracts are working very well; however, the State has created a small problem for the contract towing companies.

Supervisor McConnell explained that the contract requires that the towing companies notify the registered owner, as shown on current Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) records. The DMV has limited the towers to providing only five or six registration requests each day. This information is vital; especially when the vehicle towed must be sold for salvage, or otherwise because the owner did not claim it. One of the towers has towed 22,000 vehicles for this calendar year, of which 6,5000 vehicle will be junked for salvage. Another company has requested 1,150 owner records since the beginning of the year and, to date, has received only 170 responses.

Supervisor McConnell noted that junk cars are piling up in the storage lots. Towing contractors will soon no longer be able to tow junk vehicles for the police. She said that the Board needs to ask DMV for help in providing access to its automated records. Towing contractors need to access the vehicle information, just as car dealers do. While noting that there would have to be safeguards, fees, and records, she asserted that something must be done to remove this backlog. She said that Sergeant Pat Wimberly of the Police Department can provide details of the problem.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board authorize the Chairman to write a letter to the DMV Commissioner requesting him to initiate meetings with the Police Department to find a solution to this problem. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

48. UTILITY TOWERS VERSUS POLES (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell stated that recently a matter concerning telecommunications antennas has arisen that needs remedy through a change to the Zoning Ordinance. The issue is the definition of a tower versus a pole.

Supervisor McConnell said that the issue involves utility "towers" on rights-of-ways wider than 90 feet. These "tower" structures generally are known as "high voltage power line rights-of-way." The County encourages telecommunications providers to place their antenna on these existing towers. The problem is that several years ago the power companies started using a new design for these towers. Instead of "erector set" looking structures, power companies started using "poles" that are actually taller than old towers. Under the old 90-foot towers, on the rights-of-way 100-feet or wider, the telecommunications providers can place a 240-square foot building to support the antenna. Under the 115-foot "poles" on the same rights-of-way width, they can only put a cabinet (70 cubic feet). She said that there is general agreement that the intent is to allow the buildings under the 115-foot "poles," but as they are "poles," not "towers," no one wants to approve them. Staff has suggested that the Board change the code to allow for this.

Supervisor McConnell distributed to the Board a description of the problem and drawings of the two types of structures for clarification. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct the County Executive to initiate action to provide a amendment to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 112 (Zoning Ordinance), to allow telecommunications providers to place up to nine antennas on Virginia Power transmission towers and/or transmission poles and place the current size buildings under them. She indicated that this would merely add two words to the existing section.

Following a brief discussion, the question was called on the motion, the second to which was inaudible, and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

49. DISTRIBUTION OF BOARD MATTER SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell stated that many times, in an effort to save time during the presentation of Board Matters, she attaches descriptive and clarifying information to the written Board Matter. She indicated that she does this so that the staff person eventually assigned has all of the details needed to follow up. However, each time she does this, her staff receives a call from the assigned person asking for information. Apparently, the effort to provide detail is not making it to the staff persons who must do the work. While it is no major problem to send the documentation, it would save time and eliminate duplication if the County Executive could forward the backup material with the assignment. The past five requests for letters or certificates assigned to Public Affairs, and the proposed signs and backup material for the Occoquan Watershed area, are recent examples of background materials not having been forwarded with the assignment.

Accordingly, she asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to forward any attachments to Board Matters, given to the County Executive or County Attorney, which are then assigned to an agency or department for additional work, with the assignment to the person(s) who will be responsible for the product requested in the Board Matter. Without objection, it was so ordered.

50. MR. HAROLD WILSON TO BE CONFERRED POET LAUREATE (Tape 7)

With reference to his written Board Matter on the subject, Supervisor Hyland stated that Mr. Harold Wilson has been writing poetry about every aspect of the Lorton community. Supervisor Hyland made reference to Mr. Wilson's remarkable contributions to the community. Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

51. REC PAC - RECREATION FOR PRETTY AWESOME CHILDREN (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland stated that the Department of Recreation and Community Services has a program for children called Rec Pac, Recreation for Pretty Awesome Children. This recreation program is held in many schools during the summer and there is one in the Gunston Elementary School on Gunston Road in Mason Neck.

Supervisor Hyland noted that there are hundreds of children located approximately two miles away living along Richmond Highway who would be interesting in Rec Pac, but cannot attend because there is no sidewalk along either Richmond Highway nor Gunston Road nor is transportation provided. However, scholarships are available that could fund the transportation need.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Community and Recreation Services to provide scholarship funds for transportation to and from the Richmond Highway area and Gunston Elementary School for these children. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

52. PRESENTATATION OF NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF COUNTIES (NACo) AWARDS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that at its last meeting on July 10, staff presented an Information Item informing the Board that the County had won four NACo 2000 National Achievement Awards for innovative programs. He moved that the Board direct staff to extend a formal invitation to NACo's Executive Director to appear before the Board to present the awards to the staff persons responsible for the four programs to be properly thanked and recognized as they receive their awards. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

Following a brief discussion, with input from Debra Bianchi, Acting Director, Department of Public Affairs, Chairman Hanley suggested that this invitation be scheduled for August 7, 2000.

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

53. REQUEST FOR MR. JAY JORGENSEN TO BE HONORED BY THE BOARD (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland announced that Jay Jorgensen, a long time staff member of the Park Authority, is retiring. To acknowledge Mr. Jorgensen's many years of service to the County, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board invite him to appear before the Board for recognition. Without objection, it was so ordered.

54. VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (VDOT) POLICY REGARDING TELECOMMUNICATION TOWERS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland stated that VDOT has adopted a new policy concerning the location of towers in rights of way that has the effect of nullifying the Supreme Court decision that the County obtained regarding local land use authority for siting private telecommunication towers. Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Attorney to present the new VDOT policy to the Board so that an official position on the matters could be taken.

Following a brief discussion, with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the request was so ordered.

55. I-95/395/495 INTERCHANGE PROJECT CONGESTION MANAGEMENT PROGRAM CLARIFICATION (Tape 7)

Chairman Hanley stated that the County's Director of Transportation sent a memorandum to the Board explaining the Congestion Management Program (CMP) on the I-95/395/495 Interchange regarding what it is and its cost. The issue was raised because of discussions regarding the cause of the cost overrun of the interchange project. She noted that the CMP is only about five percent of the current expenditure, well below the eight to ten percent national average.

A brief discussion ensued.

56. RECESS/CLOSED SESSION (Tape 7)

At 12 noon, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board recess and go into closed session for discussion and consideration of matters enumerated in Virginia Code Section 2.1-344 and listed in the agenda for this meeting, and in addition:

Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

Chairman Hanley announced that closed session would commence at 1:25 p.m.

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Bulova being absent.

61. INITIATION OF LEGAL ACTION AGAINST PARTIES INVOLVED IN VIOLATIONS WITHIN THE LAKE MARTIN WATERSHED (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board approve the initiation of legal action against the parties involved in storm drainage landfall inadequacies and erosion and sediment control violations within the Lake Martin Watershed, and he further moved that the Board ask the Commonwealth of Virginia's Department of Conservation and Recreation to join the Board in taking appropriate legal action as outlined in the Department's letter to the County dated July 17, 2000. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, and Supervisor Bulova being absent.
