39. FIRST ANNUAL WASHINGTON AREA CONFERENCE ON TELEWORKING (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Board unanimously supported an initiative introduced at the November 15, 1999, Board meeting on the issue of teleworking. As part of that vote the Board endorsed the formation of a task force on teleworking to look at best practices, incentives, and goals to organize a regional teleworking conference to promote teleworking as an important tool in addressing transportation and air quality challenges in our area.

Supervisor Connolly said that as chairman of the Metropolitan Washington Area Council of Governments (COG) this year, he introduced a resolution at COG's April 12, 2000, Board meeting that was unanimously endorsed by all of the representatives of this region, 17 jurisdictions, and that the region established a goal of achieving a 20 percent rate of teleworking commuters in the metropolitan Washington area by 2005. He said COG estimates that currently about 250,000, or 12 percent of the region's workers, now telework.

Supervisor Connolly said that he was pleased to report that under the stewardship of the County Executive's Office, the Planning Group has been meeting regularly and has plans for the conference which will be co-sponsored by Fairfax County, COG, and the International Telework Association and Council (ITAC) on Telework America Day, October 24, 2000, in the Fairfax County Government Center. The committee expects to finalize the conference agenda shortly and "mark your calendar" cards are about to be mailed to business and government leaders for that date. ITAC's latest research findings and its best practices guide will be unveiled at a morning press conference and COG and the County Executive's office are working on some exciting regional announcements as well.

Supervisor Connolly showed a bumper sticker that he has seen that said "Stop Driving - Telework, Telecommute." He said it should be encouraged because it would have beneficial results throughout the region.

40. VALUE ENGINEERING (VE) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that on June 23, 1997, he and Supervisor Mendelsohn moved the approval of a Board Matter that led to the adoption of a policy requiring VE for capital projects. Under this policy, all County highway projects, neighborhood improvement projects, utility projects, and other "horizontal" construction projects with an estimated construction cost in excess of two million dollars are subject to a VE study.

Supervisor Connolly said that VE is a strategic and innovative approach to obtain optimum value for every dollar spent. VE reduces the overall project and life cycle costs without sacrificing quality, aesthetics, or operation and maintenance capabilities. September marks the third year of the Fairfax County VE program. Though still a relatively new program, VE has already proven to be a crucial aspect in retaining the quality of life the citizens demand. A recent example is the savings from the new public safety center parking structure. The County was able to save $3.2 million from an estimated $18 million cost.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to prepare a report on the cumulative savings to the County over the last three years, since the inception of the VE program.

Supervisor Mendelsohn added that the County Executive should determine from the schools its status in adopting a VE program. Without objection, it was so ordered.

41. ZONING ORDINANCE RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING SIGNS ALONG COUNTY ROADWAYS (Tape 5)

(BACs) Supervisor Connolly said that Fairfax County, under its Zoning Ordinance, has specific rules and regulations governing signs along the County's roadways. These regulations, enforced by the Zoning Enforcement Branch, provide guidelines for residents and business owners alike to follow in displaying signs throughout the County. However, there are a great deal of illegal signs in Fairfax County.

Supervisor Connolly said that the County's sign problem is complicated by the fact that almost all of the roads in Fairfax are owned and operated by the State, meaning that these signs often are within the State right-of-way, further complicating enforcement efforts.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to work with the Department of Planning and Zoning to form a Countywide sign task force to:

Supervisor Connolly added that each Board Member should appoint a district representative to the task force. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked to amend the motion to include:

And this was accepted.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to include input from Clean Fairfax, Incorporated, 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 a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

42. CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1999-PR-027 (AMERICAN LAND DEVELOPERS; SANDBURG NORTH) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that American Land Developers has submitted Rezoning Application RZ 1999-PR-027 to rezone 2.79 acres of land from the R-1 District to the PDH-3 District. This application seeks permission to permit development of six single family detached dwelling units at a density of 2.15 dwelling units per acre. In response to comments from staff, the Providence District Planning Commission, and the neighbors, the applicant substantially revised the plan to preserve existing stands of trees. In altering the layout of the project, the applicant eliminated two lots to arrive at the present proposal of six homes. The applicant further addressed issues such as drainage, incorporation into an existing homeowners association, and dedication of right-of-way for the potential widening of Interstate 495 in the future, as well as agreeing to install a noise wall.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to concurrently process the subdivision plans for Rezoning Application RZ 1999-PR-027 with this application. This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Frey being absent.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board for Special Exception Application SEA 80-P-078-10 on November 20, 2000. This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Frey being absent.

46. REQUEST FOR A CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR THE CRIME PREVENTION UNIT OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that for many years the first Tuesday in August has been set aside as "National Night Out," a time for neighborhoods to demonstrate their commitment to community safety and crime fighting as well as their support of our police department. He said that Providence District citizens are served by the McLean, Mason, Reston, and Fair Oaks Stations.

Supervisor Connolly said that August 1, 2000, was a stormy night. Yet, as he traveled to community events, he marveled at the commitment of not only the citizens but also the dedicated officers who were out there trying to make sure the neighborhood was safe from would be criminals. Supervisor Connolly said that he passed Neighborhood Patrol Unit officers on their bicycles, in the rain.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives of the Crime Prevention Unit of the Police Department to appear before the Board to be recognized for their outstanding efforts at an appropriate time to be honored. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Frey being absent.

47. INCLUSION IN THE EDGELEA WOODS RESIDENTIAL PARKING PERMIT DISTRICT (RPPD) FOR SNOWBOUND COURT AND LOGWAY ROAD (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly stated that he had received petitions from the residents of Snowbound Court and Logway Road for inclusion in the Edgelea Woods RPPD. Staff from the Department of Transportation has observed the parking conditions on these streets and has determined that the extensions of the Edgelea Woods RPPD to include Snowbound Court and Logway Road meets the parking demand guidelines as set forth in the County Code.

50. ANNUAL PLAN REVIEW PROCESS (Tapes 5-6)

Supervisor Connolly referred to a memorandum to James P. Zook, Director, Department of Planning and Zoning expressing concerns about a proposal from a Planning Commission subcommittee that would revise the annual plan review process.

There was a brief discussion with input from Mr. Zook.

51. ASSISTANCE TO STARLIT PONDS HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION WITH CONVERSION OF WET PONDS TO DRY PONDS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that Starlit Ponds, a small community of single family detached homes, is located off Olley Lane near Little River Turnpike. In addition to some private streets and a tot lot, Starlit Ponds has two wet ponds that serve as a private storm water detention facility. Not long after the community was completed in the early 1980s it became apparent that the wet ponds would not be the aquatic amenity that residents had thought they would enjoy.

Supervisor Bulova said that for a number of years, the community made a valiant effort to solve the problems that arose. A number of innovative approaches were tried, but nothing worked. Over time, the ponds became choked with aquatic plant life, the fish did not survive, and storm warm capacity decreased due to heavy siltation. Further complications include problems with adequate outfall. Starlit Ponds residents sought County assistance and were told that the solution was converting the ponds to dry ponds so that they could be turned over to the County for maintenance. Conversion is a very expensive undertaking, so the community tried innovative approaches to financing including applying for grants. After exhausting all avenues, Starlit Ponds residents decided to tighten their belts further and have raised the money to convert the ponds themselves. Their budget is very tight and they cannot afford to go through several revisions of engineered plans or do a state of the art conversion as might be required of a new subdivision.

Supervisor Bulova said that members of the Starlit Ponds Homeowners Association (HOA) Board of Directors, along with its attorney, met in her office with County staff to discuss how best to coordinate the conversion and transfer. The Starlit Ponds HOA has begun the process of selecting an engineering firm. At the same time, staff is reviewing the plans for a small new four-lot subdivision to be built adjacent to Starlit Ponds, upstream from the Starlit Ponds ponds. A waiver for an on site storm water detention facility has been approved with the conditions that the builder work with the Starlit Ponds HOA to obtain an outfall easement into the ponds as well as make some contribution toward the necessary improvements. This will require very close coordination in the review of the two projects.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to ensure that there is close coordination and oversight in the review and approval of the engineered plans for the conversion of the Starlit Ponds ponds along with the subdivision plan for the development approved for Rezoning Application RZ 1999-BR-008. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

52. VISIT WITH STUTTGART "SISTER REGION" PARTNERS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that last year, the Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC) (then "Planning District Commission") entered into an agreement with officials in the Verband region of Stuttgart, Germany to exchange information about issues and programs in the respective regions. An official of the Stuttgart "Regional Parliament" visited Northern Virginia this year and participated in the NVRC's annual Land Use Conference. On July 21, 2000, Supervisor Bulova was part of a delegation of 12 NVRC Commissioners and staff who visited the Stuttgart area and participated in a nine day learning experience. The trip was funded by grants from the German Marshall Fund of the United States, American Council on Germany, Friedrich Ebert Foundation, and the Heinrich Boll Foundation.

In addition to ozone and particulates that foul the air, the regional partners are concerned with air flow and circulation. Stuttgart's regional body can restrict the construction of buildings that interfere with natural air currents and/or require that buildings be constructed at such an angle that allows air to flow between them. Additionally, because Stuttgart officials are concerned that the temperature of their city has risen as a result of construction, they have introduced rooftop gardens to help absorb heat and cool the local climate.

The Stuttgart Region recycles approximately 60 percent of its waste. Through a program called "Green Dot," manufacturers are responsible for recycling their own packaging material. The manufacturers have contracted with a private firm to collect packaging materials from homes and businesses and to recycle it. After one consumes something in a Stuttgart McDonalds, one separates out food trash, glass, aluminum and packaging into trash/recycling containers. The jurisdiction is responsible for picking up all items except for the packaging materials. A separate truck arrives once a week (at homes) and carries off the packaging waste.

Recycling is also done on-site for construction projects. While a building was being demolished, Supervisor Bulova watched trucks arrive on the site to cart away materials that had already been divided into concrete, metal, and wood. A truck ground up the concrete into sand and carted it away. Another truck removed the metal and another the wood.

One of the chief recommendations from the visit is that officials from the Stuttgart Regional Parliament be invited to participate in the Fall 2001 NVRC Land Use Conference to describe more fully their programs on Greenways and Air Flow, and to share information about Stuttgart 21, a plan to move rail yards located in the center of the City underground and to redevelop the rail yard area with mixed use. They, in turn, have expressed an interest in learning more about methods for attracting economic development to the area, success with public/private partnerships, and efforts to provide training and education to Northern Virginia citizens on information technology.

Supervisor Bulova expressed her appreciation in having the honor of participating in the exchange as a Commissioner representing Fairfax County.

A brief discussion ensued.

53. MCLEAN LITTLE LEAGUE MAJOR ALL-STAR SOFTBALL TEAM (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that on July 27 the McLean Little League Major All-Star Softball Team won the Virginia State Tournament, beating out Tuckahoe of Richmond, 11-0. The McLean team came from behind to take home the 2000 Virginia State Championship banner.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite members of the McLean Little League Major All-Star Team to appear before the Board to be recognized for their significant accomplishment. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

54. FAIRFAX CIRCUIT MEETS GOAL OF SPEEDY TRIALS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn referred to an article in the Journal newspaper regarding the Virginia Supreme Courts decision that circuit courts should try 90 percent of their felony cases within 120 days. He noted that Fairfax County is the only one of the State's 31 judicial circuits meeting the goal.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board write the court and congratulate it on meeting the goal.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Following discussion, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to:

Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

55. CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF SITE PLAN WITH REZONING APPLICATION FOR S&R DEVELOPERS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that S&R Developers, Incorporated has filed a rezoning request for properties located at Tax Map Number 81-2 ((1)) Lots 4, 5, and 6. The applicant has requested that site plan processing be concurrent with the rezoning request.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to process the site plan associated with this application concurrently. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on the rezoning application by the Board and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

56. RETIREMENT OF BRIAN SMITH, DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF BUILDING CODE SERVICES, DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS AND ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross announced that Mr. Brian Smith has retired after 28 years with the County. From his first job on a survey crew, Mr. Smith ultimately reached the position of Deputy Director of Building Code Services, in the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services. One of Mr. Smith's many skills is an ability to make people see the lighter side of any situation. With his knowledge of the process and his problem-solving attitude, Mr. Smith was tremendously helpful to residents, businesses, and Supervisors' offices. He will be sorely missed.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Smith to appear before the Board to be honored before the Board on a date to be determined. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

57. REQUEST TO WAIVE LANDFILL TIPPING FEES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that in late July, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) removed a large amount of debris that had accumulated off Columbia Pike near the entrance to Holmes Run Stream Valley Park. Over the summer, multiple truckloads of debris were dumped there on public land. She said that at her request, VDOT conducted the clean-up, and transported the debris to the County landfill. VDOT Maintenance has been most cooperative in dealing with this repeated problem. She said that her office will be working in partnership with VDOT to find a solution so that another clean-up is not necessary.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the County Executive to waive the landfill tipping fees associated with this important clean-up. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

58. EXPANSION OF THE CULMORE RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) DISTRICT 9 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that the residents of Washington Drive in the Culmore neighborhood are requesting expansion of the Culmore RPPD District 9 to include Washington Drive between Tyler Street and Maple Court, and Nevius Street between Vista Drive and Wilkins Drive. She said that she recently received their completed petitions along with the required fees and forwarded them to the Department of Transportation.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board waive the RPPD requirement of 100 contiguous or nearly contiguous parking spaces for the aforementioned streets. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

59. HOARDING CONFERENCE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that on October 12, 2000, the Board Auditorium will be host to an inter-jurisdictional Hoarding Conference, to address a growing problem which introduces a multitude of unsanitary and sometimes dangerous conditions to an estimated 3500 homes in this County alone. Fairfax County now has an inter-agency task force to address the problem, including the Fire Marshal, Health Department, Adult Protective Services, and many more County agencies.

The conference in October will allow Northern Virginia jurisdictions to share their experiences with this issue, and hear directly from mental health experts. The task force has identified approximately 20 individuals who would benefit from this educational experience, but it is uncertain at this point if funding is available to cover the $45 registration fee.

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to the County Executive to determine if available funds exist to send County employees to the October 12, 2000, Hoarding Conference. Without objection, it was so ordered.

60. APPOINTMENT TO THE DULLES CORRIDOR LAND USE TASK FORCE (Tape 6)

(APPT) Supervisor Hudgins moved the appointment of Mr. Frank Bryceland to the Dulles Corridor Land Use Task Force as the Hunter Mill District (CIT Station) Representative to replace Mr. Ronald A. Tyus. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

 

61. RESTON MULTICULTURAL FESTIVAL 2000 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the first Multicultural Festival 2000 will be held at Lake Anne Plaza on Saturday, September 23 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The Festival has been organized by individual citizens who came together "to promote understanding and respect among people of various cultures represented in the community."

Supervisor Hudgins invited Board Members and the entire Fairfax County community to join her at the Reston Multicultural Festival 2000 on September 23 to enjoy ethnic food, entertainment, and handicrafts from around the world.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite the Reston Multicultural Festival 2000 Planning Committee, representatives from the Reston Association, and the Reston Community Center to appear before the Board to be recognized for their hard work and dedication in bringing this unique contribution to the community. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

62. LAMOND PROPERTY - WATER AND SEWER CONNECTION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland stated that in February of this year, the Park Authority acquired the Lamond Property on Fort Hunt Road. The property contains a house that was built in 1939 and has been vacant since 1997, contributing to its state of disrepair.

As indicated in Supervisor Hyland's written Board Matter, since the Park Authority’s planned used of the property is to restore the house and gardens to their original condition and use the structure for neighborhood meetings, garden club events, weddings, et cetera, it is necessary to bring the house up to standard for public use. The well serving the house no longer has adequate recover time given the planned increased usage and the septic system has exceeded its useful life rendering it impractical to replace them.

Supervisor Hyland said that the estimated total cost to connect to the County water and sewer system is $125,000. Of this amount, $100,000 is required for materials and sewer line installation. The Park Authority, utilizing existing staff resources, would provide the labor necessary for installation of the water line. The remaining $25,000 is for permitting and availability fees and charges, $13,000 for sewer and $12,000 for water. The Park Authority has no funds allocated or available for this project and the property cannot be opened for public use until these necessary facilities are provided.

Accordingly, on behalf of the Park Authority, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board, in conjunction with the Fairfax County Water Authority, waive the tap fees to reduce the costs of the project to $100,000, if such waiver is legally permissible.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Hyland amended his motion to direct the County Executive to include this item as a $25,000 budget consideration item for a breakdown of costs and a source of funding for both water and sewer. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Mr. Griffin, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide a copy of the fee schedule for water connections. Without objection, it was so ordered.

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

63. VIRTUAL VOTING (Tape 7)

With reference to his written Board Matter that referred to a newspaper article regarding online voting Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous request that the Board direct staff to investigate systems and procedures for providing online voting on the Internet as an additional option for the citizens of Fairfax County and to return with recommendations including an availability date, by September 11, 2000. Following discussion regarding the "digital divide" and state certification of voting machines, without objection, it was so ordered.

64. PROPOSED PROFFER CHANGES BY KSI SERVICES, INCORPORATED FOR LORTON STATION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland stated that KSI Services, Incorporated, the developer of Lorton Station, plans to propose some changes to the proffers for the station as approved in Rezoning Application RZ 1996-MV-037. These changes would provide $1.4 million transportation improvement funds to the entire Lorton community.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board support the submission of an application for a proffered condition amendment by KSI Services. Discussion ensued, with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, who noted that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of this application in any way. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

66. ACCOLADES REGARDING PUMP AND HAUL SEWER SYSTEM FOR GUNSTON HEIGHTS AND WILEY COMMUNITIES (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland announced that the Gunston Heights and Wiley communities have a pump and haul sewer system that has been constructed and is now operational. Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the staff and members of the community who worked long and hard on this project to appear before the Board for recognition. Without objection, it was so ordered.

67. "CYBERSTALKING" (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter regarding "Cyberstalking" and asked unanimous consent that the Board:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

68. BOUNDARY CHANGES OF COMMERCIAL REVITALIZATION DISTRICT ON RICHMOND HIGHWAY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland stated that he and Supervisor Kauffman recently received a request from the Southeast Fairfax Development Corporation (SFDC) suggesting the consideration of changing the boundaries of the Commercial Revitalization District (CRD) on Richmond Highway to include more properties. Details of the rationale are included in Supervisor Hyland's written Board Matter.

Accordingly, in conjunction with Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to:

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

Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, received a brief clarification following the vote.

69. EXPEDITED AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING REQUESTED FOR AN APPLICATION SUBMITTED BY LANDMARK COMMUNITIES (Tape 7)

The site, defined as Tax Map Number 101-3 001 25, presently contains an abandoned old building which is defaced with graffiti, a pawn shop, and a business called "Almost-A-Bank" and is near the South County Government Center site.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the application and site plan for Radford Avenue/Richmond Highway, Tax Map Number 101-3 001 25, submitted by Landmark Communities, be expedited and accorded concurrent processing.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board approve the TAC recommendation to proceed with the aforementioned initiative, in concert with staff, the Virginia Department of Transportation, and appropriate citizen representatives, as outlined by TAC during the presentation. Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

 

73. CENTREVILLE FARMS - ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SITE (Tape 7)

On behalf of Supervisor Frey, Chairman Hanley said that Winchester Homes and Pulte Home Corporation have filed rezoning applications for the majority of Centreville Farms consistent with an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment that the Board approved in March. The public hearings on the rezoning applications are scheduled to be heard by the Planning Commission and the Board by the end of this year. As part of the rezoning application, Pulte is proposing to dedicate approximately 17 acres of property to the Board, which would be leased to the School Board for the Northeast Centreville Elementary School.

Chairman Hanley stated that the Schools' Facility Planning Division anticipates having the school open in September 2002. To meet this aggressive timeline and to alleviate overcrowding in the schools currently serving this area, Fairfax County Public Schools has requested the authorization to file the required final development plan for the school site so that it may track with the affiliated rezoning applications.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to accept and concurrently process the site, subdivision, and public improvement plans associated with the school's final development plan.

ACTIONS FROM CLOSED SESSION

76. CERTIFICATION BY BOARD MEMBERS REGARDING ITEMS DISCUSSED IN CLOSED SESSION (Tape 8)

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board certify that, to the best of its knowledge, only public business matters lawfully exempted from open meeting requirements and only such public business matters as were identified in the motion by which closed session was convened were heard, discussed, or considered by the Board during the closed session. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Mendelsohn, and Chairman Hanley voting "AYE," Supervisor Frey being absent.

77. REIMBURSEMENT OF LEGAL EXPENSES INCURRED BY A JUVENILE DETENTION CENTER EMPLOYEE (Tape 8)

78. SETTLEMENT OF COST CONTAINMENT, INCORPORATED VERSUS ASHE COUNTY, N.C., ET AL. (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board of Supervisors authorize the settlement of Cost Containment, Incorporated versus Ashe County, N.C., et al., United States Bankruptcy Court, Eastern District of North Carolina, 99-01939-5-ATS, according to the terms and conditions outlined by the County Attorney in closed session.

A brief discussion ensued.

80. REQUIREMENT OF WIRELESS TELECOMMUNICATIONS FACILITIES ON VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (VDOT) PROPERTY TO SECURE THE COUNTY’S APPROVAL UNDER VIRGINIA CODE SECTION 15.2-2232 BEFORE SUCH FACILITIES ARE ESTABLISHED (Tape 8)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting there was discussion of this item. See Clerk's Board Summary Item CL#34.)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that it has come to his attention that VDOT has adopted new guidelines relating to the establishment of wireless telecommunications facilities in VDOT rights-of-way. These guidelines indicate that VDOT may be seeking to circumvent, in whole or in part, the ruling of the Supreme Court of Virginia in November 1999 that firmly established in a lawsuit brought by the Board the legal principle that private telecommunications facilities located on VDOT property are first required to secure the County’s approval under Virginia Code Section 15.2-2232. It is, and has been, the position of the Board that wireless telecommunications facilities on VDOT property are required to secure the County’s approval under Section 15.2-2232 before such facilities are established. VDOT’s new guidelines imply that County approval is not required if VDOT owns the telecommunications tower. He submitted that this position is contrary to the County’s victory in the Supreme Court of Virginia.

Accordingly, based on the foregoing, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board authorize the County Attorney to take appropriate legal action in the event VDOT and/or any private telecommunications company attempt(s) to establish a private telecommunications facility in Fairfax County under VDOT’s new guidelines. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

Staff was directly administratively to proceed as proposed.
