20. VOLUNTEERFEST® (Tape 4)

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

(*NOTE: Later in the meeting, Chairman Hanley corrected the date of when VolunteerFest will be held as October 28. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#75.)

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

22. TURN OFF THE VIOLENCE (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley explained that the TURN OFF THE VIOLENCE campaign is a weeklong series of events and activities in October that promotes nonviolence. This year's theme is "Personal Responsibility = Personal Power" with a focus on youth-perpetrated and gang-related violence. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct staff to:

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

23. SENIOR CITIZEN "SAVE OUR SENIORS" (SOS) PROGRAM (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley asserted that enabling senior citizens to stay safely in their homes for as long as possible is a quality of life issue that this Board must address. In many jurisdictions across the country, public safety departments, or some local entity, maintain a list of seniors who are called by telephone once a day. If there is no answer, someone is dispatched to the residence to check. Sometimes this is called an SOS Program.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to work with the Fire and Rescue Department and the Area Agency on Aging to explore establishing such a program, and to provide a recommendation to the Board, including any budget impact. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Supervisor Gross asked to amend the motion to review the TRIAD program to ensure that it is not overlooked and that there is no overlap, and this was accepted.

24. LETTER TO GOVERNOR GILMORE REGARDING MENTAL RETARDATION (MR) MEDICAID WAIVERS (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to a letter she had drafted to Governor Gilmore regarding MR Medicaid waivers and explained this complex issue. The General Assembly failed to budget additional funds for additional Medicaid waivers. This is the State match to draw from federal funds. The Senate Finance Committee is meeting on this issue today. Chairman Hanley noted the paradox is that there is funding to institutionalize persons, but no finding for the preferred option to provide the services in the community.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to send the proposed letter to the governor, with copies to others as appropriate. Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion.

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

Further discussion followed the vote.

25. SECONDARY ROAD FUNDING (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley reported that she had attended a transportation committee meeting at the recent Local Government Officials Conference meeting in Charlottesville where she received a handout on the budget (not the six-year plan) for secondary roads. The budget is $4 million less for the statewide Secondary System, resulting in a decrease of $716,514 for Fairfax County compared to last year's expenditure.

Following further discussion, Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the staff of the Department of Transportation to send copies of the State's Secondary Road Program to the Board for review as soon as it is received by that office. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Discussion continued briefly.

26. SUBSTANCE ABUSE AWARENESS WEEK (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley stated that staff from Alcohol and Drug Services (ADS), an agency of the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB), has requested that the week of November 8 through November 17, 2000, be proclaimed as Substance Abuse Awareness Week. For the nineteenth year, ADS will provide a week of educational programs on a variety of substance abuse treatment and prevention topics.

 

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to:

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

27. COMMUNITY CRIMINAL JUSTICE BOARD (Tape 4)

(BACs) Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to a letter from Sheriff Barry regarding a request to amend the agreement that established a multi-jurisdictional Community Criminal Justice Board. She asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this item to staff for inclusion in the agenda for the next Board meeting. Without objection, it was so ordered.

28. MID-ATLANTIC POLICE MOTORCYCLE RIDING COMMITTEE, INCORPORATED (MAPMRC) (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley announced that the Board is invited to attend the twenty-first annual Mid-Atlantic Police Motorcycle Safety competition and awards banquet to be held September 30, 2000, as outlined in a letter from Joe Furman, Vice-President, MAPMRC.

29. EXPANSION OF COMMISSION FOR WOMEN MEMBERSHIP (Tape 4)

(BACs) Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to copies of a memorandum she had received from Alta Newman, Chair, Commission for Women, requesting expansion of the membership of that commission by three seats, which she referred to the Board for its interest.

30. ROUTE 123 BRIDGE PROJECT (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to copies of a letter from Patricia Conway, Mayor, Town of Occoquan, regarding the Virginia Department of Transportation's Route 123 Bridge Project. A brief discussion ensued.

31. BUS SHELTER INSTALLATIONS (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to an "Installation of Bus Shelter" memorandum dated August 14, 2000, in response to a previous Board Matter she had raised to accelerate bus shelter installations. She asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review the list and accelerate the schedule. Without objection, it was so ordered.

33. NOISE COMPLAINTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that over the past several months there has been an increase in the number of noise complaints to the Hunter Mill District office. Citizens have expressed concern regarding the noise from construction and refuse collection vehicles.

Supervisor Hudgins noted that according to the County's Noise Ordinance, the purpose is "to promote an environment for its citizens free from noise that jeopardizes their health or welfare or degrades the quality of life." Construction vehicles can only operate during the hours of 7 a.m. until 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Sundays and federal holidays. Trash and refuse collection in residential neighborhoods can only operate during the hours of 6 a.m. until 9 p.m.

Violations to the Noise Ordinance can be reported to the Zoning Enforcement Branch at 703-324-1300. When there is a violation to the Noise Ordinance the Zoning Administrator will give notice of such violation to the person failing to comply with the ordinance and take other corrective measures as necessary.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to reiterate the County's Noise Ordinance through the Office of Public Affairs and give notice to construction contractors, trash and refuse collectors, for the benefit of all citizens. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

34. BELL ATLANTIC (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that Bell Atlantic has submitted a Special Exception application for the existing telecommunications switching station facility at 2516 Horsepen Road, Herndon, Virginia. 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 approve an expedited Board date for Special Exception Application SE 00-H-043. 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 Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

35. RESTON GATEWAY PROJECT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that on July 19, 2000, the Planning Commission approved the Town Center Concept Plan filed by Boston Properties and Terrabrook for the development of Reston Section 93, Blocks 1 and 2, also known as the Reston Gateway project, located at the corner of Sunset Hills Road and Town Center Parkway. The Reston Gateway property is just west of the new Discovery Square office development at the corner of Reston Parkway and Sunset Hills Road, on which Boston Properties and Terrabrook also recently broke ground. Already existing on the property are two buildings that are leased by the federal government. Importantly, the property is immediately adjacent to the general area in which a rail station could be located as rail service is extended along the Dulles Corridor.

To make the review process more efficient and give the staff a full picture of the proposed development, this Board is permitted to authorize concurrent processing of both the PRC Plan and the site plan for projects in the PRC Zoning District. Such authorization does not relieve the applicant of complying with the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance and in no way prejudices the staff's review of those applications.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board authorize staff to accept and process concurrently the PRC and site plans for Reston Section 93, Blocks 1 and 2, Tax Map Numbers 017-3-01, Parcels 4B, 5B, 5E and 29. 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 McConnell being out of the room.

36. OPENING OF THE YOUNG MEN'S CLUB ASSOCIATION (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley announced that she and Supervisor Hudgins and Supervisor Mendelsohn attended the opening of the new YMCA.

37. APPOINTMENT TO THE TREE COMMISSION (Tape 6)

(APPT) Supervisor Connolly moved the appointment of Mr. Marco Greenberg as the Providence District Representative to the Tree Commission. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

38. REGISTRATION HIGH FOR THE FIRST ANNUAL WASHINGTON AREA CONFERENCE ON TELEWORK (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly announced that the electronic invitations have gone out for the first Annual Washington Area Conference on Telework being co-sponsored by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG), which he chairs this year, Fairfax County and the International Telework Association and Council (ITAC). This all-day event is being held at the Government Center on Tuesday, October 24, 2000. The steering committee chairman Bob Di Lorenzi reports that nearly 400 people have already registered. Spaces for special guests, including representatives from each of the supervisor districts, have been set aside to give Board Members the opportunity to invite constituents who have an interest in this issue. Supervisor Connolly noted that this is a regional conference and guest spaces are limited, so Supervisors need to submit the names of four constituents to his office as soon as possible.

The day will include presentations on what local jurisdictions are doing to help meet the goal of 20 percent of the region's workforce participating in teleworking by 2005 that was unanimously endorsed by the COG Board this spring. Representatives of federal, state, and local governments and the private sector will participate in panels ranging from the basic "how to" of teleworking, to overcoming challenges and resistance, to presentations of case studies of telework programs that are working in the region.

In addition to helping recruit and retain employees and drive down operational costs, teleworking is one of the most exciting short-term options for addressing traffic congestion and improving air quality and the quality of life for families in the region.

Supervisor Hyland asked that an effort be made to extend invitations to the Virginia Association of Counties and the National Association of Counties.

39. KINGSLEY COMMUNITY COALITION IS A MODEL NEIGHBORHOOD EFFORT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly brought to the Board's attention that a remarkable partnership was formed this year in one of the Providence District communities. The Kingsley Community Coalition was the creation of John Freeman, owner of Kingsley Common, an affordable housing community on Arlington Boulevard near Graham Road. Residents of Kingsley Commons include many recent immigrants who speak little or no English. The children attend nearby Graham Road Elementary, the County's number one special needs school. Supervisor Connolly said that he has worked with the community and the adjacent Kingsley Park, a public housing community run by the County, on several initiatives that involved a number of private and public partnerships.

Several things have contributed to the success of these efforts to improve the quality of life for residents. Supervisor Connolly said the most important factor has been Mr. Freeman's willingness to donate space and considerable resources to allow partners to come in to Kingsley Commons and serve the children and adults who live there. He has provided space to create a computer learning center, a satellite office for the Community Police, a homework center and the recently opened Family Resource Center. The group that has formed around these efforts include Cora Harper, the principal of Graham Road Elementary School, Rev. Bill Hale from Knox Presbyterian Church, as well as representatives from Supervisor Connolly's office, the Office of Partnership, Volunteer Fairfax, the Virginia Cooperative Extension, Fairfax County Community Police officers and Kingsley Commons and Kingsley Park. Working together this group has also presented a health and safety fair and sponsored a summer youth basketball clinic, just to name a few. At a time when affordable housing is at a premium, Mr. Freeman's commitment deserves our special attention.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. John Freeman and the other members of the Kingsley Community Coalition to appear before the Board at the next meeting to honor them for extraordinary partnership and to allow them to report to the Board on their accomplishments in hopes that the coalition may serve as a model for other communities in the County. Without objection, it was so ordered .

40. PINE SPRING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL RATES HIGHEST IN COUNTY IN IMPROVEMENT OF VIRGINIA STANDARDS OF LEARNING SCORES (SOL) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly noted that after concerns were raised about SOL Scores last year, School Superintendent Daniel Domenech challenged 20 schools in Fairfax County to significantly improve their scores. In making the challenge, Dr. Domenech provided incentives to every employee at schools that met his announced goals. Nine schools worked hard and qualified for those incentive rewards, but Pine Spring Elementary in the Providence District achieved the most dramatic gains, qualifying as a "gold-medal school." As an example, some 96 percent of Pine Spring's fifth graders passed the SOL's math test, compared with 64 percent the previous year. Overall, Pine Spring posted a gain three times as large as the goal school officials had set. Dr. Domenech found the gain so remarkable that he has directed administrators to study Pine Spring's success to see what methods can be duplicated in other County schools.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Andrea Warner, principal of Pine Spring Elementary School, and other staff members and appropriate individuals who participated in this remarkable effort to appear before the Board and be recognized for this outstanding achievement. Without objection, it was so ordered.

41. LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE MEETING (Tape 6)

(BACs) Supervisor Connolly reminded Board Members and the public of the schedule of upcoming Legislative Committee meetings. Committee meetings have been scheduled for 4 p.m. on the following Fridays: September 22, October 27 (tentative), November 10, and November 28, in Conference Rooms 9 and 10 at the Government Center. The Board's draft legislative program, will be available to the public at noon on Wednesday, November 15, and November 20 has been tentatively set as the public hearing date for that program. The program is expected to be adopted on Monday, December 4. The Annual Legislative Breakfast to present the program to the Fairfax County delegation will be held at 7:30 a.m. on Friday, December 15.

42. DATING OF DOCUMENTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly noted that there are many documents produced by Fairfax County Government that lack any sort of date, whether it be date of origin, revision, or printing. Obviously, this causes unnecessary difficulties when it becomes necessary to determine a date, either for information purposes or to accretion the timeliness of a publication.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to develop a Countywide policy for dating all materials generated or reproduced by county offices. Without objection, it was so ordered.

43. TRIAD COUNCIL FOR PROVIDENCE DISTRICT (Tape 6)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting TRIAD was referenced. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#23.)

Supervisor Connolly said that TRIAD is a national movement that represents a three-way partnership among a community's older or retired leaders, its local chief of police and its sheriff. In Fairfax County the TRIAD includes the Chief of Police as well as the Chiefs of the City of Fairfax and the Towns of Vienna and Herndon, the Sheriff, American Association of Retired People, and the County Commission on Aging. To further strengthen this union, there is support from Adult Protective Services, Fire and Rescue, George Mason University Police, Victim Services, and the Virginia State Police.

Supervisor Connolly announced a new chapter in the history of TRIAD in the County. He said that Providence will be the first to establish a District SALT (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) Council. This group of talented and dedicated seniors will represent the wealth of the diversity as well as the commitment of the seniors and law enforcement to work together to prevent crime and victimization.

44. LEE NATIONAL DENIM DAY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation began fundraising for breast cancer research, education, screening, and treatment in 1982. Since that time, the non-profit organization has raised over $240 million dollars for this worthy cause. Lee National Denim Day is one of the fundraising efforts of the Komen Foundation. The National Denim Day event began in 1996 and has taken place annually since and becoming more successful each year.

On Friday, October 6, 2000, employers throughout the country will encourage their employees to donate $5 to the Komen foundation and wear jeans to work. Fundraising efforts such as National Denim Day provide the organization with funds as well as recognition for the fight for a cure for breast cancer.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct:

Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

45. NOTTOWAY NIGHTS" - PROVIDENCE DISTRICT'S SUMMER CONCERT SERIES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that this summer, "Nottoway Nights," Providence District’s summer concert series, was launched with the support of the Friends of Nottoway Park, the Fairfax County Park Authority, citizen volunteers, and several corporate, and community sponsors. Attendance at the 11 free weekly concerts averaged over 400 people per concert, and allowed citizens a unique opportunity not only to experience music and culture from around the world, but to share an evening with their neighbors as well. Despite this summer’s wet weather, only three concerts had to be cancelled due to rain.

Therefore, Supervisor asked unanimous consent that the Board invite those involved in this year’s successful Nottoway Nights Program, including the Friends of Nottoway Park, Park Authority staff, and program sponsors to appear before the Board to be recognized for their efforts. Without objection, it was so ordered.

46. PUBLIC HEARING FOR NORTHWESTERN MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY - PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 80-P-039-7 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company has a pending proffered condition amendment application for Land Bay D in the Hunters Branch project. The Planning Commission decision is scheduled for September 26, 2000, and the site plan is currently being reviewed by the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services. The applicant has worked with Linda Smyth, the Providence District Planning Commissioner to address a number of issues. Prior to the public hearing before the Planning Commission and Board, the applicant has agreed to strengthen a commitment to pursue support retail in the proposed office building.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on October 16, 2000, on Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 80-P-039-7 in the name of Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

47. FAIRFAX BAR ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly expressed his congratulations to Jan Brodie, Senior Assistant County Attorney, for being named as the Fairfax Bar Association President.

48. INTENT TO DEFER THE JOINT PUBLIC HEARING WITH THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (VDOT) ON A PROPOSED CUT-THROUGH TRAFFIC RESTRICTION FOR PARK ROAD BETWEEN OLD DOMINION DRIVE AND KIRBY ROAD (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced his intent to defer the joint public hearing with the VDOT on a proposed cut-through traffic restriction for Park Road between Old Dominion Drive and Kirby Road until October 30, 2000.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#85.)

49. MCLEAN COMMUNITY CENTER CELEBRATES ITS TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that on October 13 and 14, 2000, the McLean Community Center will host a celebration marking its twenty-fifth anniversary. Highlights of this event include a gala reception, special performances at the Alden Theatre, a fundraising Walk Around McLean, a festival and numerous other exhibits and special features throughout the week.

The McLean Community Center was built on land donated by the McLean Citizens Association, and the Center was constructed with privately raised funds and revenues from Fairfax County's first sanitary tax district. The Board approved the master plan for this complex in 1974, construction began in April 1974, and the Center opened for business in September 1975. Since that time, the Center has been managed by a Governing Board elected annually at McLean Day and approved by the Board of Supervisors under a Memorandum of Understanding adopted in 1982.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the Chairman of the McLean Community Center Governing Board and its Executive Director to appear before the Board on September 25 to congratulate and recognize them on the occasion of this twenty-fifth anniversary celebration. Without objection, it was so ordered.

50. HERNDON NEIGHBORHOOD RESOURCE CENTER (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the Town of Herndon and the County of Fairfax have worked in partnership to create the Herndon Neighborhood Resource Center which opened in July of 1999. This partnership has made it possible for a small local jurisdiction to provide integrated community based services to enhance the quality of life in culturally diverse neighborhoods.

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that the Herndon Neighborhood Resource Center was submitted by the Town of Herndon as its entry to the Virginia Municipal Leagues (VML) 2000 Achievement Awards and has been selected as one of the winners. The Resource Center was awarded best project or program in the category for localities with populations of between 10,001 and 35,000.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn congratulated the Town and expressed his appreciation to Verdia Haywood, Deputy County Executive, Robert Stalzer, Deputy County Executive and former Herndon Town Manager, and all Fairfax County staff members who were instrumental in making the Neighborhood Resource Center a reality.

Following discussion, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Chairman to send a letter of congratulations on behalf of the Board. Without objection, it was so ordered.

51. REQUEST TO RECOGNIZE CECELIA LAMMERS, FORMER FAIRFAX COUNTY URBAN FORESTER (Tape 6)

Jointly with Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Mendelsohn said that it has been a pleasure as Chair of the Tree Preservation Task Force to have worked with Ms. Cecelia Lammers, the Fairfax County Urban Forester. After 14 years of her service to Fairfax County, Ms. Lammers has left the County to work for the Maryland National Capital Parks and Planning Commission.

Supervisor Mendelsohn noted that Ms. Lammers has played an invaluable role as Fairfax County's Urban Forester. She has raised the visibility of and encouraged dialogue on tree-related issues in Fairfax County. Ms. Lammers was instrumental in the success of 2000 Trees by 2000, which resulted in over 20,000 new trees being planted in the County in 1999. She also has worked tirelessly with the Tree Preservation Task Force to produce over 37 recommendations that were unanimously adopted by the Board and are in the implementation process.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Cecelia Lammers to appear before the Board to be recognized for her service to Fairfax County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

52. MHI-LAUGHLIN AVENUE VENTURE, LLC (MADISON HOMES) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that MHI-Laughlin Avenue Venture, LLC, (Madison Homes), is the applicant for a rezoning of several parcels of land in the McLean Community Business Center. The proposed rezoning would consolidate these parcels of residential land into a mixed-use development with retail and residential components. As a feature of its proposal, Madison Homes has offered to provide the McLean community with land for Civic Place, which is envisioned in the Comprehensive Plan as a community gathering place.

The Madison Homes proposal includes a portion of the existing right-of-way of Lowell Avenue and portions of existing alleyways into the Madison Homes land. Before the application can be accepted by the Department of Planning and Zoning, however, staff must be directed by the Board to accept an application which includes these portions of public right-of-way. It is estimated that approximately 8,775 square feet of the Lowell Avenue right-of-way and 5,211 square feet of alleyways would be included in the application. The McLean Planning Committee supports the inclusion of these public rights-of-way in the Madison Homes plan.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board give permission for Madison Homes to include a portion of the existing right-of-way of Lowell Avenue and portions of existing alleyways in its proposed rezoning application for property identified as Tax Map 30-2 ((9)) parcels 56-66. This motion does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of any and all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards, and does not constitute support by the Board for the application. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

53. "MARYLAND FIRST" POLICY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that at the August 7, 2000, Board meeting, he requested, in conjunction with Information Item 3 - Contract Award - Professional Services for Trail Design Consultants, that staff review the analysis regarding out-of-state contractors and Business, Professional, and Occupational Licenses.

Subsequent to that meeting, he has been informed that the State of Maryland has a "Maryland First" policy whereby contractors who are located in Maryland are provided additional points in the Request for Proposal review process. According to a constituent, the Honorable Thomas Davis Rust, Mayor of Herndon, this preference effectively locks out Virginia firms from doing public works business in Maryland.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to research this matter and to provide the Board with the following information:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

54. HOSPICE GRANT AWARD (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that on August 8, 2000, he received a letter from Darleen Cors, Vice President for Development of Hospice and Palliative Care of Metropolitan Washington (Hospice). Ms. Cors' letter describes a disturbing circumstance which has led Hospice to the unfortunate decision to return the $15,000 grant awarded to the organization by the County through the Fiscal Year 2000 Community Funding Pool. According to Ms. Cors, that decision was based on the overly extensive reporting requirements imposed by the County which are too burdensome to make the funds useful to Hospice. In addition to the Fairfax County grants, Hospice has received grant funding of over $36,000 from other local governments and has indicated that the reporting requirements for these jurisdictions are minimal by comparison to those of Fairfax County and are derived from the extensive patient-related data already in the Hospice files.

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that upon further investigation, Mr. David Bobbit, Director of the Annual Fund for Hospice, informed him that, although Hospice certainly needs these funds, the organization has brought this matter to his attention with the hopes that the evaluating system can be streamlined for all organizations that provide essential services to Fairfax County.

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

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to include a review of other regulatory requirements, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hyland.

Supervisor Frey asked to amend the motion to direct staff to review the application process, and this was accepted.

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

55. SEVEN OAKS II DEVELOPMENT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that the Seven Oaks II development is a townhouse community located in the Mason District, which was approved by the Board on November 15, 1976, as the subject of Rezoning Application RZ 76-M-112. At the time of the zoning approval, a number of proffers were accepted by the Board, including commitments to provide a recreational facility, a buffer strip at least 50-feet in width, a continuous six-foot brick wall, and supplemental plantings to be located along the west and southwest property boundaries. The property was subsequently developed and the open space was turned over to the Homeowners Association in 1991.

In September 1999 a complaint was received by the Zoning Enforcement Branch, questioning the development's compliance with the proffers. Following site inspections by staff, it was determined that a number of violations of the proffers did exist. Since that time, the homeowners association (HOA) has been working diligently with staff to determine the extent of the violations and the appropriate remedies.

Staff from both the Zoning Enforcement and Urban Forestry Branches have met repeatedly with representatives of the HOA, and have resolved some of the outstanding issues. However, because a number of the homes having fences, air conditioning units and other intrusions located in error within the 50-foot wide buffer strip, it has been determined that the best course of action is for the HOA to file a proffered condition amendment application to attempt to settle the remaining concerns.

The Seven Oaks II Homeowners Association is a non-profit organization with limited means, and has to date expended large sums in an attempt to resolve these violations. In an effort to reduce the financial burden on the HOA and to arrive at a mutually acceptable resolution of the concerns of Seven Oaks II and the surrounding community, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board waive the filing fees for the proffered condition amendment application. The applicant understands that this motion will not in any way prejudice the consideration of the application, and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

56. SHAWNEE ROAD, PARCEL 18C (Tape 6)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting an issue relating to Shawnee Road was discussed. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#6.)

Supervisor Gross said that Cafferty Commercial Real Estate Services has been working to develop parcel 18-C, a 6.7 acre parcel served by Shawnee Road in the vicinity of Edsall Road and I-395. A Texas based company is interested in occupying the planned low density office campus-style building approved for this location, provided there is some certainty that the building can be ready for occupancy a year from now.

Supervisor Gross noted that normally, plan approval and permits would be withheld until the issues regarding the acceptance of Shawnee Road are resolved, which in this instance would cause the project to be too late to secure the commitment of the interested company.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to process plan review and the issuance of permits on an expedited basis while efforts are concurrently occurring to resolve the acceptance of Shawnee Road into the State system for maintenance. 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 Mendelsohn being out of the room.

57. SHAWNEE ROAD (Tape 6)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting issues relating to Shawnee Road was discussed. See Clerk's Summary Items CL #6 and CL#56.)

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to prepare the appropriate resolution necessary for the Virginia Department of Transportation's Industrial Access Road Program for Board consideration at the September 25, 2000, Board meeting. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

58. NEW GRAPHICS (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley noted the new graphics on the cable television monitors around the dias.

59. WESTMINSTER SCHOOL (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that the Westminster School has filed Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 84-M-121, for an expansion of its facility located at 3819 Gallows Road. Because of a delay in processing the paperwork, the applicant has requested that the public hearings be expedited.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board at its first meeting in January 2001. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

60. STORAGE PARTNERS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that Storage Partners has filed a special exception application for property located at Tax Map Number 80-2((7)) Parcel U1.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Planning Commission and the Board as expeditiously as possible. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

61. OUR RESOURCES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross called the Board's attention to a good publication by the Park Authority entitled Our Resources which contains information regarding nature, history, and horticulture.

62. BOARD RECOGNITION OF CARLA CONVERY, VIRGINIA FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE YEAR (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland announced that Virginia Amateur Sports, organizers of the commonwealth Games of Virginia, announced that Ms. Carla Convery of Alexandria has been named the 2000 Commonwealth Games of Virginia Female Athlete of the Year. The award is presented to a male and female athlete who have competed in the Commonwealth games and who personify the ideals of the State Games movement – participation, sportsmanship, effort and positive attitude.

During the past 20 years, Ms. Convery, age 80, has earned more than 500 track and field medals competing in the 100m and 200m dashes, long jump, shot put and discus. Ms. Convery has competed in the Commonwealth Games of Virginia, Virginia’s Golden Age Games, the National Senior Olympic Games and the Master Program Competition in several other states and she is still going strong.

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Convery to appear before the Board to be recognized for her latest achievement as recipient of the 2000 Commonwealth Games of Virginia Athlete of the Year. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

63. URBAN REVITALIZATION PROGRAMS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland said that he recently received from State Senator Puller a Catalog of Urban Revitalization Programs which was produced by the Commonwealth of Virginia Commission on Local Government. Upon review, he found it to contain a wealth of information about funding resources for revitalization programs and projects which have been successfully occurring in other jurisdictions, both in Virginia and nationwide.

Supervisor Hyland said that the Tax Increment Financing (TIF) is discussed at length as a means for paying for redevelopment in a specific district with new tax revenue generated by the increase in property values at the conclusion of redevelopment. Improvements in a district are customarily financed with bonds issued by a Redevelopment Authority with the debt on the bonds retired through tax revenue increment generated by the increased assessed value of the redeveloped property. TIF does not raise taxes, is not an extra assessment or service tax, and is treated as a special financing entity similar to revenue bonds not subject to statutory limitations on allowable debt. The advantage of using TIF is that it appears to be a way of financing revitalization without raising taxes or using general fund money and offers a myriad of ways in which the funds may be used.

Among the many examples provided in the catalog are Town Centers, replacement of blighted areas with mixed use parks, removal of contaminated soils and creation of neighborhood shopping malls, creation of a business park with greenway trails, ponds, woods, and other developments involving conversion of abandoned properties into hotels, office, retail, and restaurants. It might also be possible to use such a method for funding Community Improvements in aging neighborhoods.

Tax Incentives were discussed as a means for distressed localities to offer incentives to attract commerce and industry since these areas are in direct competition with perceived cleaner and safer locations. Fairfax County has taken some tax incentive measures, Supervisor Hyland asserted that perhaps the time has come to evaluate how well these are working.

Empowerment Zones are mentioned as a way to revitalize designated areas in economically distressed communities by providing federal tax incentives and grants to qualifying businesses. Specifically mentioned is the Virginia Enterprise Zone program in which Fairfax County once competed.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Director of Housing and Community Development to review the catalog in its entirety and provide commentary and recommendations to the Revitalization Policy Committee at its next meeting focusing on programs which might work best in Fairfax County’s designated revitalization areas and how and when those programs most appropriate for the County's needs could be initiated. Without objection, it was so ordered.

64. WITH SINCERE THANKS (Tape 6)

(Earlier in the meeting the Board offered its condolences to Supervisor Hyland in the death of his wife. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#1.)

Supervisor Hyland expressed his appreciation to his colleagues on the Board, Fairfax County staff, and the incredible number of citizens, friends, and business associates who have expressed their sympathy and kind thoughts to him and his family during this very difficult time – the loss of his wife and beloved life partner, Carmen Hyland.

Supervisor Hyland said that the outpouring of love and caring from so many has brought comfort to his daughter, Gigi and to him. He added that his wife made a significant impression on all who knew her and while their personal loss is momentous, he recognized how much her passing has meant to so many.

65. TAX COLLECTION FOR ILLEGAL BUSINESSES (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman said that the Zoning Enforcement Branch of the Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) recently issued to one of his constituents a Notice of Violation for operating a towing business on a piece of property zoned R-1. The constituent asked why the Department of Tax Administration (DTA) annually issues her and her husband a Business, Professional, and Occupational License (BPOL) and collects taxes on an illegal business.

Supervisor Kauffman noted that although DTA’s website does refer BPOL license applicants to the DPZ, the BPOL division informed his staff that this division does not verify that applicants have applied for, or received, the appropriate permits from DPZ before issuing a business license. He asserted that to prevent further inconsistencies, these two agencies must share information about applicants, similar to the way the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles shares vehicle registration information with the County Department of Tax Administration.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to return with a proposed procedural change to ensure that the County does not generate tax revenue from uses which violate the Zoning Ordinance. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

66. SHOWMOBILE FEE WAIVER FOR DIXIELAND BAND CONCERT (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman announced that the City of Fairfax’s Dixieland Band will perform a free concert for the community on Sunday, September 17, 2000, at Muddy Hole Park. His office has reserved the Showmobile for this event. In recognition of the contribution to community spirit that this event brings, he moved that the Board waive the fees associated with the use of the Showmobile. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

67. HEALTHY FAMILIES OF FAIRFAX (Tape 7)

With reference to her written Board Matter on the subject, Supervisor McConnell informed the Board of the credentialing of the Healthy Families of Fairfax by the Prevent Child Abuse America’s Healthy Families America. This achievement, effective through April 2, 2004, recognizes a prevention program of the Department of Family Services, in partnership with the Department of Health and three nonprofit agencies, including Northern Virginia Family Services, United Community Ministries-Community Solutions, and Reston Interfaith.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite members of the Healthy Families Fairfax Program to appear before the Board to be recognized for their accomplishment and to provide further details on the program. Without objection, it was so ordered.

68. CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF SITE AND SUBDIVISION PLANS FOR REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2000-SU-012 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey stated that Centex Homes and Batal Builders have submitted Rezoning Application RZ 2000-SU-012 and have requested concurrent processing of the site and subdivision plans. The public hearing is scheduled for October 16, 2000.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to accept the site and subdivision plans associated with Rezoning Application RZ 2000-SU-012 for concurrent processing. He noted that the motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

69. OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT FOR KSI-MIDDLETON CENTER (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey reported that KSI has acquired an interest in property located at Tax Map 24-2((1)) 1, generally located in the southeast corner of the intersection of Frying Pan Road and Route 28. The property falls within both the Sully and Hunter Mill Districts. The Comprehensive Plan anticipates office uses between a .15 floor area ratio (FAR) and a .35 FAR, depending on the provision of certain improvements including roadway extensions, dedication of right-of-way for a transit stop, land consolidation, dedication of Environmental Quality Corridors and other items. He said that KSI representatives have requested an out-of-turn plan amendment to consider a mixed-use development including multi-family residential with an overall FAR up to .5.

With the understanding that the applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff of the Department of Planning and Zoning to consider an out-of-turn plan amendment for alternatives on property identified as Tax Map 24-2((1)) 1, including an option for mixed-use development containing multi-family residential up to a maximum .5 FAR. Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

70. INOVA HEALTH CARE - FAIR OAKS HOSPITAL (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey stated that Inova Health Care Services has filed concurrent rezoning and special exception amendment applications for another revision to proposed expansion plans for the Fair Oaks Hospital campus. Hospital representatives have requested scheduling of the public hearings prior to the end of the year.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct:

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

71. WAIVER OF FEES ASSOCIATED WITH THE EXPANSION OF CHANTILLY RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) NUMBER 29 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board waive the fees associated with the expansion of Chantilly RPPD Number 29 for the blocks of Poplar Tree Road, Pinefield Court, Majestic Lane, Pearsall Lane, and Pergate Lane. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

72. CENTREVILLE FALL FESTIVAL (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey announced that the Centreville Fall Festival is scheduled for September 23, 2000, the same day as the Reston Multicultural Festival (the organizers for which were recognized earlier in the meeting.) He noted that in the past the Board has waived the tipping fees for the after-event cleanup for Centreville's festival, performed at no charge by AAA Trash Service.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board waive:

Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion regarding the single Showmobile cab, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, the question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

73. ANIMAL SHELTER APPRECIATION WEEK (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey announced that this year's National Animal Shelter Appreciation week is November 5-11, 2000. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct staff to:

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

74. 2012 OLYMPICS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey stated that the Washington Baltimore Regional 2012 Coalition is preparing a bid to host the 2012 Olympic games in the DC area. Many of the events are proposed to be held in Northern Virginia/Fairfax County, including swimming and diving events, judo, wrestling, and tae kwon do. Dulles Airport would provide a major gateway for the athletes and spectators and more than 30,000 hotel rooms in Northern Virginia would be occupied by participants and spectators.

Because the County has striven to develop an identity separate from the Washington Statistical Metropolitan Area, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to prepare and send a letter from the Board to the Olympic bid organizing committee to specifically recognize Fairfax in the name of the bid effort, such as the "Washington/Baltimore/Fairfax 2012 Coalition. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.
