(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, Chairman Hanley deferred her presentation of this item. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#40.)

Chairman Hanley stated that it had come to her attention that the Loudoun County Department of Planning has issued a staff report in conjunction with a rezoning application for the Cedar Crest housing development (ZMAP 1998-0011) in which 575 homes have been proposed on a 595-acre tract adjacent to Fairfax County. She said that staff from the Department of Planning and Zoning and the Department of Transportation have submitted comments to Loudoun County, copies of which she distributed to the Board. The comments address certain transportation issues pertaining to the rezoning request, including limiting the access of traffic from homes in the development to Bull Run Post Office Road, as well as discussion of the proposed Tri-County Parkway in the general vicinity of the project.

Chairman Hanley said that the comments of Fairfax County staff do not appear to be an endorsement of the project, yet the Loudoun County staff report lists Fairfax County as recommending approval. Noting that it is crucial that characterizations by Fairfax County staff be reported in an accurate manner, she asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to work with officials of Loudoun County and other adjacent jurisdictions to develop an alternate category of acknowledgement, as opposed to simply listing approval, denial, or not applicable, that can be used when Fairfax County reviews a land use proposal, but does not offer a formal recommendation on the dispensation of the case. Without objection, it was so ordered.

45. BRIEFING ON THE VIRGINIA TRANSPORTATION DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (VTDP) (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to a memorandum from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, dated September 25, 2000, regarding the VTDP, formerly known as the "Six-Year Improvement Program," which is scheduled for public hearings on October 5, 2000, with adoption by the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) scheduled for October 18, 2000. Young Ho Chang, Director of Transportation, briefed the Board on key elements of the program.

Following discussion, with input from Mr. Chang, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board raise its concern over funding for the Secondary Road Program as the second item in the proposed comments to the CTB. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to present the testimony as recommended by staff, with the aforementioned change. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, who stated that testing by the Health Department continues and that so far 230 birds have tested negative, Chairman Hanley called the Board's attention to an educational handout entitled Put the Bite on Mosquitoes.

Following discussion, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

55. LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE (Tape 5)

(BACs) (NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board took action regarding legislative issues. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#47.)

Supervisor Connolly called the Board's attention to a draft of the Fairfax County Draft Legislative Program 2001 Virginia General Assembly and very briefly outlined key elements.

56. CENSUS BUREAU DIRECTOR RECOGNIZES FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that this past week, Census Bureau Director Kenneth Prewitt singled out Fairfax County for having one of the highest and best response rates for large jurisdictions in the nation. This came as Fairfax County's mail-in response rate was adjusted to reflect those forms mailed after the April deadline. Fairfax County reached an almost unheard of 80 percent compliance. That reflects an adjustment from the earlier report of 76 percent.

Supervisor Connolly stated that this reflects the enormous effort of citizens appointed by the Board to serve on the Complete Count Committee for Census 2000, the staff dedicated to supporting this effort in the Department of Systems Management for Human Services, and the countless Fairfax County employees and volunteers who contributed to this result.

57. AMANDA PLACE ABANDONMENT PUBLIC HEARING (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that Batal Builders, Incorporated, had received approval from the Board for Rezoning Application RZ 1999-PR-040 in February 2000.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the scheduling of a public hearing for the abandonment of portions of Amanda Place for October 30, 2000. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

PMH:pmh

58. FAIRFAX CONNECTOR BUS SERVICE TO CELEBRATE ITS FIFTEENTH ANNIVERSARY OF SERVICE (Tapes 6-7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that on September 29, 2000, the Fairfax Connector will celebrate its fifteenth anniversary of service to the citizens of Fairfax County.

Supervisor Hudgins referred to her written Board Matters and noted that the Fairfax Connector Bus Service first began service on September 29, 1985, in the southeastern part of the County, including routes that served the Huntington Metrorail Station with 33 buses serving 10 routes. Since then, the Fairfax Connector has grown to a fleet of 156 with 58 routes.

Supervisor Hudgins said that a formal ceremony will be held on October 14, 2000, at the Springfield Mall Commuter Lot to commemorate the anniversary, and on September 29, 2000, the actual anniversary, the Fairfax Connector will be offering free rides to all citizens.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Andy Szakos, Ms. Dorothy Cousineau, and the Director of the Department of Transportation to appear before the Board to receive special recognition for their involvement with the Fairfax Connector service since its inception. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

59. GAS STATION CUSTOMERS FILL THEIR VEHICLES' GAS TANKS WHILE THE ENGINES ARE STILL RUNNING (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that recently in the Washington Post, citizens expressed concern in witnessing gas station customers filling their vehicles' gas tanks with the engines still running. Both Fairfax County and the Commonwealth of Virginia have an ordinance that requires citizens to turn off their vehicles' engines during fueling.

Violation to Fire Prevention Code, F-3206.2, carries a misdemeanor charge, which is punishable by a $2,500 fine, one-year jail term, or a combination of both. Citizens who witness customers not adhering to this Fire Prevention Code should report violations to the police department or directly to the magistrate.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to reiterate the Fire Prevention Code and to notify the Washington Post's Dr. Gridlock of the proactive steps the County is taking in light of his recent column. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

60. TOWN HALL BUILDING IN THE TOWN OF VIENNA TO BE DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF MAYOR CHARLES A. ROBINSON, JR. (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that in recognition of Mayor Charles A. Robinson, Jr.'s devotion and outstanding service to the Town of Vienna, on October 6, 2000, the Town Hall building in the Town of Vienna will be dedicated to his memory.

Mayor Robinson's public service career spanned four decades beginning with his appointment to the Town of Vienna's Board of Zoning Appeals in 1954 and in 1960 to the Town Planning Commission. He was first elected to the Town Council in 1962 and served as mayor from 1976 until his death in January 2000.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a proclamation recognizing the memory of Mayor Robinson for his outstanding public service and commitment to the role of local government, to be presented at the dedication of the Charles A. Robinson Town Hall Building. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

 

61. RESTON eVILLAGE WEBSITE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that on October 3, 2000, the Reston eVillage website will be launched. Reston eVillage is a virtual village that will include a menu of community activities, links to businesses and County government, community newspapers, and a community chat room.

The site provides a virtual gathering place for Reston residents and can be viewed by anyone who has Internet access, but only registered users within Reston's special tax district can comment or interact on-line.

63. RESTON CITIZEN ASSOCIATION'S 2000 COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD WINNER (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Reston Citizens Association (RCA) was founded in 1967, and has served as a forum for issues affecting the community and is a voice for Reston to County and State governments on issues of citizen concerns. As a voice for Reston, RCA also has encouraged and recognized the involvement of citizens in service to the community.

On September 22, 2000, RCA recognized Ms. Claudia Thompson-Deahl, the Environmental Resource Manager at the Reston Association, for her work in protecting and enhancing the environment, protecting the natural ecology, and preserving open space.

At the Reston Association, Ms. Deahl is responsible for the health and well-being of natural areas. Her responsibilities include tree care and removal, reforestation efforts, removal of invasive species, responding to calls on injured and nuisance wildlife, and working with Scouts and scouting projects.

Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Claudia Thompson-Deahl to appear before the Board for acknowledgement and recognition as the Reston Citizen Association's 2000 Community Service Award Winner. Without objection, it was so ordered.

64. RESTON TEEN CENTER (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the brand new Reston Teen Center, located at 12196 Sunset Hills Road in the newly constructed YMCA, is ready for action. The Department of Community and Recreation Services will have the dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony at the Reston Teen Center on Saturday, October 7, 2000.

The new Teen Center will feature a variety of activities for intermediate and high school age youth, seven days a week, including a Cyber cafe, interactive games, a music room, a full-court gymnasium and a live stage. The focus of the Teen Center is meeting the needs of youth combining character education, community service projects and recreation activities.

Supervisor Hudgins invited Board Members to come and celebrate the dedication and ribbon cutting of the Reston Teen Center.

65. EXPEDITED PUBLIC HEARING FOR PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 88-C-106 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that Winchester Homes has filed a proffered condition amendment application for a portion of an existing subdivision known as Monroe Manor. The generalized development plan associated with Monroe Manor showed two lots on different parcels within the subdivision. Inadvertently, only one was constructed. Winchester Homes is now going through the bond release process and the second tot lot was identified as an outstanding item. Rather than clear a second open space parcel to construct the additional tot lot, Winchester is proposing an application to expand the facilities at the location of the existing tot lot, which meets with the approval of the homeowners within Monroe Manor.

The Planning Commission public hearing has been deferred from November 8 to November 30 to accommodate staffing issues. Winchester Homes has requested an expedited Board date of Monday, December 11, 2000.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board approve an expedited public hearing date of December 11, 2000, for Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 88-C-106. 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 six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

66. ACCESS FUNDS FOR SHAWNEE ROAD (Tape 7)

(R) Supervisor Gross noted that on September 11, 2000, the Board directed staff to prepare a resolution for Board consideration today regarding Industrial Access Funds for Shawnee Road.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board adopt the Resolution requesting the Commonwealth Transportation Board to approve Industrial Access Road funds for the improvement of Shawnee Road. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, and Chairman Hanley voting "AYE," Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

67. ISSUANCE OF BUSINESS RELATED PERMITS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross said that her office has been holding regular meetings with staff from multiple County agencies to deal with a commercial area with various persistent violations. Each agency has been helpful individually, but the meetings have highlighted a problem which deserves attention. Apparently, a prospective business may be issued some permits, even in the presence of serious violations. Sometimes this can be as simple as, for example, the Fire Marshal issuing a permit for a business which is not permitted under the current zoning. Increased communication across agencies could head off some of these problems before they arise, reduce confusion for the business owners, and assist County staff. Many agencies have existing databases of information which would be helpful to other agencies if it could be coordinated.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board refer this issue to the County Executive to determine a process for coordinating the issuance of business-related permits, possibly including a change to the sequence of the permit review process or the development of a computerized system to assist in the coordination of these efforts. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

68. ANNUAL MASON DISTRICT PARK FESTIVAL (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross announced that the annual Mason District Park Festival will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2000, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

71. CHESAPEAKE BAY 2000 AGREEMENT (Tape 8)

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that on June 28, 2000, the State of Virginia became a signatory to the Chesapeake Bay 2000 Agreement. He said that in order to continue to be an active partner in the Chesapeake Bay 2000 Agreement, Fairfax County is expected to participate in the development of specific strategies for achieving the program goals.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Chair prepare a letter to the Secretary of Natural Resources, Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, requesting that Fairfax County be invited to participate in the development of specific strategies to achieve land use sub-goals of the Agreement. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Kauffman, and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

72. COX COMMUNICATION HUB SITES (Tape 8)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that Cox Communications is the applicant under Virginia Code Section 15.2-2232 to construct a fiber optic hub site at 11504 Leesburg Pike. The property is located at Tax Map Number 11-2 ((1)) 19. He said that Cox officials have agreed to work with the Great Falls community to resolve concerns surrounding architecture and building materials, and they recognize the risks involved in proceeding in concurrent processing.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services and the Department of Planning and Zoning to proceed with concurrent processing of this application. 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 2232 application. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion which carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Kauffman, and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Supervisor Frey stated that the St. Joe Company has filed Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 85-SD-061-03 to permit an increase in building height for a building in Westfields. The additional height is not greater than what is allowed under the current zoning regulations, but the proffered conditions limit the building height to 35 feet. The applicant has requested that the Board authorize concurrent processing of the site plan with the proffered condition amendment application. The Planning Commission public hearing is scheduled for this week.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to process the site plan concurrently with the consideration of Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 85-SD-061-03.

The event is held at Bull Run Regional Park and the proceeds go to the Concord District cross country programs and Centreville High School.

Supervisor Frey stated that the team members requested a fee waiver. He explained to them that Bull Run Regional Park is owned by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, not by Fairfax County, so the Board does not have the authority to waive the fees. However, he moved on behalf of the student athletes that the Board request the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority to waive the fees associated with the holding of this event. Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Hyland jointly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Connolly being out of the room.

83. FIRE MARSHAL INSPECTIONS (Tape 9)

Supervisor Frey stated that representatives of the development industry informed him that there are serious backlogs with inspection schedules in the fire marshal's office. He noted that Chief Stinnette had taken some actions earlier in the summer to lessen the backlog and the Fiscal Year 2001 Budget included several additional positions for inspectors.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide an information item at the next Board meeting that would update any progress in eliminating the backlog as well as hiring for the new positions. Without objection, it was so ordered.

85. PBS BILL MOYERS SPECIAL "ON OUR OWN TERMS" (Tape 9)

Supervisor Bulova said that she had an opportunity to watch a very powerful series that aired on PBS during the evenings of September 10, 11, 12, and 13, 2000. The series, hosted by Bill Moyers, was called "On Our Own Terms" and dealt with end of life issues in America.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board:

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Connolly being out of the room.

86. SIGNS (Tape 9)

(BACs) Supervisor McConnell raised the issue of the proliferation of advertising signs attached to telephone poles and highway signs and placed on wooden stakes in highway rights of way throughout the County. Virginia Code Section 33.3-373 declares these signs to be both public and private nuisances and, therefore, illegal. The Code exempts political election signs and certain other signs for relatively short periods.

Supervisor McConnell stated that Virginia Code Section 33-1-375 (D) allows the County to enter into an agreement with the Commissioner of Transportation to designate a County agency an agent of the Highway Department for the purpose of removing signs in violation of Code section 33.1-373. The County agency can then charge the person or "firm" responsible for the placement of the signs a fee for removing the signs and share the monies collected with the Highway Department. Additionally, an administrative fine of $100 per sign could be levied. The money given to the Virginia Department of Transportation must go into the highway operations and maintenance fund. The Code of Virginia requires a public hearing to be held prior to creating the agreement.

Supervisor McConnell stated that Sheriff Stan Barry is expanding the size of the Weekenders program and is able to provide additional support for programs, such as litter removal. The illegally placed signs would be a target for the expanded program. Should the County enter into an agreement with the Commissioner of Transportation and have the Sheriff's office designated as the agent, the Sheriff could recoup most of his cost to operate the Weekender Program and fund its expansion.

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct the County Executive to prepare the necessary material to enter into an agreement with the Commissioner under the provisions of Virginia Code Section 33.1-375 (D), and that staff prepare an administrative item to bring before the Board at the next meeting to authorize the advertisement of a public hearing to facilitate the agreement with the Commissioner of Transportation.

Following discussion, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to the newly created Sign Task Force for its review and recommendation. Without objection, it was so ordered.

87. CLIFTON DAY TRAFFIC CONTROL (Tape 9)

Supervisor McConnell stated that Mayor Chesley of the Town of Clifton has requested Fairfax County Police traffic control and enforcement at the upcoming October 8 Clifton Day, with a rain date of October 15. This day-long event annually attracts over 25,000 visitors to the Town of Clifton and is the major fundraiser which many of the Clifton area non-profit groups rely on as their principal funding source. Historically, Fairfax County has provided police assistance to this Town event to help control the tremendous crowds and traffic volumes.

On behalf of Mayor Chesley, the Town Council, and Clifton Day's thousand of attendees, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board:

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

88. SUBMISSION OF SUBDIVISION PLANS (Tape 9)

Supervisor McConnell stated that currently Fairfax County's geographic neighbors and the Virginia Department of Transportation each require submission of subdivision plans (plats) to be registered to "state plane" coordinates. Fairfax County does not have this requirement. Rather, it is only an option under current ordinances and is utilized on less than 50 percent of the plan submissions.

Supervisor McConnell outlined the benefits of having all subdivision plats submitted in Virginia State Plane Coordinates and noted that changing the County ordinance to require Virginia State Plane Coordinates will accelerate the process, increase the accuracy of the data, and make it possible to more quickly make the data available to the public.

Supervisor McConnell noted that she had planned to bring this proposal to the Board 18 months ago, but took no action to let the County staff bring this request forward through the internal process. However, staff has still not submitted this proposal for a change to the County Code. Therefore, she moved that the Board direct the County Executive to bring to the Board's next meeting an administrative item authorizing advertisement of the public hearing to change the County Code to require all subdivision plans to be submitted in the Virginia State Plane Coordinate registration. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley suggested the necessity of also having a review by the County Attorney, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Following further discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, the question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

89. OPEN HOUSE AT SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT POLICE STATION (Tape 9)

Supervisor McConnell stated that the Springfield District Police Station held an open house attended by 1500 people. She asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Captain James M. Charron and Master Police Officer Edward C. O'Carroll to appear before the Board to be recognized for their efforts. Without objection, it was so ordered.

90. CHARACTER COUNTS MONTH (Tape 9)

Supervisor Gross stated that it had been called to her attention that October is Character Counts Month. Accordingly, she asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the appropriate Character Counts representatives to appear before the Board in recognition of "Character Counts Month" in October 2000. Without objection, it was so ordered.
