Supervisor Mendelsohn said that L'Auberge Chez Francois, a restaurant located at 332 Springvale Road in Great Falls, is the applicant for Special Exception Application SE-00-D-029. After nearly 25 years at this location, the restaurant owner, Francois Haeringer, decided to remodel and slightly expand his kitchen. Because the kitchen expansion will relocate some of the parking area onto a residentially-zoned portion of the lot, Mr. Haeringer filed a special exception application.

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that during the processing of planning for the expansion, and after filing for the special exception application and assignment of a November 1, 2000, Planning Commission date, serious damage to the kitchen portion of the restaurant occurred during a two-alarm fire. The fire also caused significant damage to other portions of the restaurant which will remain closed until repairs are made. Because of this unforeseen turn of events, Mr. Haeringer would like to complete the new kitchen addition while he makes the necessary repairs to the restaurant. He would also like to make those repairs and renovations as soon as possible because his business is presently closed as a result of the fire.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board:

This motion does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provision of any and all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards, and does not constitute support by the Board for the Special Exception application. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

43. NICK PALATIELLO AIDS IN THE RESCUE OF A PASSENGER IN AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that on Saturday, September 30, 2000, at approximately 11:30 p.m., a Herndon High School Junior, Nick Palatiello, the son of Fairfax County Planning Commissioner John Palatiello, aided in the heroic rescue of a passenger in an automobile which had crashed and landed in a lake near the Regal Theatres in Sterling, Virginia. Hearing the noise from the crash while exiting the theater, Nick, a certified lifeguard, investigated and, when he realized that there was someone trapped in the car, dove into the water and commenced a rescue. He was aided in this attempt by three other passers-by who also jumped into the water to assist in the rescue. Together they located the victim and managed to pull him through the open driver's side window. Nick immediately checked the victim's vital signs and discovered that he was not breathing. Fortunately, Emergency Medical Team personnel from the Office of the Loudoun County Sheriff arrived on the scene and began successful Certified Pulmonary Resuscitation. The victim was breathing on his own by the time the rescue squad arrived, and he was transported to Loudoun Hospital where he was hospitalized for several days. At this time he is still recovering from the accident.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite Nick Palatiello to appear before the Board to be congratulated and acknowledged for his bravery, his quick response in the face of an emergency, and his concern for his fellow man. Supervisor Hudgins and Supervisor McConnell jointly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Connolly said that this was the first year that this event was being held at the Expo Center. He noted that due to its success it had outgrown the Sheraton Hotel and the Hilton Hotel.

45. CONGRESSMAN FRANK WOLF'S PROPOSED TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that at the Leadership Fairfax International Session on October 12, 2000, Congressman Frank Wolf came up with an additional $2,000,000 which will be one of the critical transportation improvements that will be needed to keep this region vital economically. He said that it clearly impacts Fairfax County and Dulles Airport's future, the $2,000,000 study of the tech way project.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board thank Frank Wolf and show support for the $2,000,000 study. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley said that she and Supervisor Kauffman would take it as direction to the Transportation Planning Board on October 18, 2000.

He said that there appears to be no significant unresolved planning and zoning issues associated with the request. On that basis the applicant has requested permission to begin concurrently processing the necessary site plan.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff from the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to concurrently process the site plan and other engineering approvals associated with pending Special Use Permit Application SP 00-Y-052. The applicant understands that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

47. 4H CLUB OF THE HOOFERS AND HEIFERS (Tape 4)

Supervisor Frey said that the local Fairfax County 4H Club of the Hoofers and Heifers at Frying Pan Park recently won the state livestock judging contest at the Virginia State Fair. A few weeks earlier the club won the Eastern Regional Poultry judging contest. As a result of both of these wins, they will head to the National Competitions in Louisville, Kentucky in the middle of November.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board invite the members of the 4H Club to appear before the Board to be recognized for its outstanding achievements, particularly since Fairfax County is not known for its "agriculture," and has defeated all the more typically known "agriculture" communities. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

48. CENTREVILLE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION HELD CENTREVILLE DAY CELEBRATION (Tape 4)

Supervisor Frey said that the Centreville Community Foundation is a volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the community's history while enhancing the quality of personal and business life in the rapidly growing Centreville area. Each year for the last seven years, the Foundation has orchestrated the annual Centreville Day Celebration. He said that this year, for the first time, Centreville Day was not held on the Fourth of July, but in September as a Fall Festival. However, the date had no effect on the success of the event as thousands of residents from all over Centreville and Chantilly enjoyed a wonderful community parade with a festival at Braddock Park.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board invite the members of the Centreville Community Foundation to appear before the Board to be recognized for its commitment, dedication and undying community spirit that it has given to all the residents of Centreville for the past seven years. Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor McConnell jointly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

49. CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR SMILES - 2000 (Tape 4)

Supervisor Frey called the Board's attention to the Memorandum to the Board from Anthony Griffin, County Executive, dated October 16, 2000, regarding the SMILES-2000 program, and a brief discussion ensued.

50. "GREEN BUILDING" MEETINGS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins shared with Members of the Board information on a series of meetings on "Green Building," a design and construction approach that demonstrates through real examples how to implement positive environmental change. The meetings are sponsored by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments and will culminate in a conference next spring to explore how the region can develop green building policies.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board encourage staff participation in the "Green Building" meeting series and to report with additional information after receiving feedback on the meetings. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

51. RURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins said that on Tuesday, October 10, 2000, 20 Fairfax County Public Schools high school students traveled to rural southwest Virginia to visit three high schools as part of the Fairfax County - Southwest Virginia Exchange Program. The exchange program was sponsored by Delegates Kris Amundson and Tom Jackson to foster better understanding of the challenges faced by different regions in the Commonwealth.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite the students who participated in the Rural Exchange Program to appear before the Board for recognition. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

52. APPOINTMENT TO THE DULLES RAIL LAND USE TASK FORCE (Tape 5)

(BACs) Supervisor Hudgins moved the appointment of Ms. Susan Magnotti as the CIT Station Representative to the Dulles Rail Land Use Task Force to fill the unexpired term of Mr. Frank Bryceland. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing was formally deferred.)

54. WASHINGTON AREA CONFERENCE ON TELEWORK AND TELEWORK AMERICA DAY (WACOT) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly distributed to Board Members copies of the WACOT conference agenda scheduled for October 24, 2000, to be held at the Government Center.

Supervisor Connolly invited everyone to attend.

 

55. SENSOR TECHNOLOGY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Washington metropolitan area enjoys strong support for public transit. He distributed to Board Members a recent article about a new bus service known as Metro Rapid launched by the City of Los Angeles which allows for limited traffic signal preemption, as long as its effect on traffic signal operation is minimized.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to examine the feasibility of instituting such a service in a regional context, including technological issues that would need to be resolved, and report with their findings. Without objection, it was so ordered.

A brief discussion ensued.

56. REQUEST FOR CONCURRENT PROCESSING AND PUBLIC HEARING DATE FOR CHRISTOPHER MANAGEMENT/HILLTOP ROAD - REZONING/FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN APPLICATION RZ/FDP 2000-PR-027 (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that Christopher Management currently has a pending application for a property located on the north side of Hilltop Road in the Providence District. With the assistance of staff from the Department of Planning and Zoning and the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, the applicant has been making efforts to solve off-site drainage problems that are currently affecting the adjacent property in Dunn Loring Village. Solving such drainage problems requires engineering work well beyond what would typically be done during the rezoning process. The applicant is working with staff and the neighboring community to address these off-site drainage issues. The applicant has agreed to a deferral of the Planning Commission public hearing date to permit the applicant's engineers to complete necessary engineering calculations.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the:

This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Kauffman being out of the room

 

57. CULMORE DAY LABORERS' COMMITTEE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that in the spring of 1998, the Hispanic Committee of Virginia, St. Anthony's Catholic Church, the Woodrow Wilson Action Group, and her office, formed the Culmore Day Laborers' Committee Trade Skills Training Project, which is a pilot, public-private partnership working for the Culmore community. The committee was formed to consider and address the needs of the day laborer community, which congregates at the Seven Eleven on Glen Carlyn Road. The day laborers typically work for construction contractors for the day. This community consists primarily of immigrants from Central America, who came to Fairfax County with limited resources, language and working skills, and are striving to establish themselves in a new country.

Through the administration of the Hispanic Committee of Virginia, a unique program was established to help the day laborers by combining vocational and language instruction into three curriculums: basic English for job seekers, carpentry, and basic electricity. With the generous support of volunteer instructors and private sector companies, this public-private partnership works. The Hispanic Community of Virginia will honor its first graduates of the program on Tuesday, October 17, 2000.

Supervisor Gross reported that approximately ten students will receive certificates for completing their courses, and the program already has opened the doors for stable employment for some of the students, and scholarships for additional vocational training for others.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to send certificates of recognition to six individuals who established a partnership with the Hispanic Committee of Virginia, and volunteered their time and resources to help make this program possible:

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

58. ANIMAL FRIENDLY LICENSE PLATES (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross noted that several years ago the Board endorsed and publicized the creation of Virginia's "Animal Friendly" license plate. Part of the appeal of these plates is that a portion of each sale is returned to the local jurisdiction, to support spay and neuter programs. Thanks in part to the Board's support, the plates have been in production for some time, and it is now time for an update.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to circulate to the Board the status of the "Animal Friendly" license plate program, including how much money has been returned to Fairfax County, and how these funds will be utilized.

Supervisor Frey asked to amend the request to direct staff to review the issue of private/non-profit humane groups using the proceeds to promote spay/neuter programs and the concept of a non-profit pool that could review Requests for Proposals from private/non-profit groups to develop spay/neuter programs, and this was accepted.

Without objection, the request, as amended, was so ordered.

59. VIRGINIA HISTORICAL MARKERS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that the Virginia Department of Historic Resources recently approved several state historical markers, two of which are intended to be placed on County land. One marker commemorates the site of Fort Buffalo, a fortification built by Union troops in 1861, near Seven Corners. The other marker commemorates Mason's Hill, a Confederate outpost, which included an observation tower from which soldiers would reportedly observe activities in Washington, DC. As these two markers are planned to be placed on County property, at Seven Corners Fire Station and at the Mason District Governmental Center, respectively, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) requires permission from the County before erecting and maintaining the signs.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the Chair to send a letter to VDOT, granting permission to erect historical markers at the Seven Corners Fire Station and the Mason District Governmental Center, with the understanding that the State will maintain these markers. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

60. PINE RIDGE PARK (Tape 5)

Jointly with Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Gross presented the following Board Matter regarding Pine Ridge Park. She said that over the past several years, there have been numerous discussions by the Board on how to put Pine Ridge Park into the jurisdiction of the County's Park Authority. With the Board's approval of the community-generated amendment to the County's Comprehensive Plan it is clear that the Board intends that Pine Ridge Park be retained as a park and not be developed with any uses inconsistent with those presently found on the property.

Supervisor Gross said that in the past year, three different offers - swap of Pine Ridge Park for the B-1 building pad at the Government Center; purchase of Pine Ridge Park by the County; and swap of County-owned land (six parcels) for Pine Ridge Park - have been made to the School Division in an effort to facilitate a transfer of Pine Ridge Park from its jurisdiction to the County. Each of the others had issues or problems from the perspective of either County or the School Division, and is no longer being pursued.

The issue remains on how to facilitate moving Pine Ridge to the Park Authority's inventory. Several elements must be considered. The School Division also is interested in consolidating many of its administrative activities.

Supervisor Gross moved, jointly with Supervisor Frey, that the Board authorize the County Executive to work collaboratively with the School Division in the planning for a future administrative facility for the School Division. Significant planning efforts are required to determine space requirements and an optimal location in order eventually to have such a facility, after student needs mentioned above are met.

Supervisor Gross further moved that the Board direct the County Executive to pursue a long-term lease for Pine Ridge Park between the Fairfax County Park Authority and the School Division.

Supervisor Frey seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley noted that there were two offers and a discussion regarding the Pine Ridge Park and she clarified that the B-1 building pad was discussed, but not formally offered.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to request the School Board to turn the park over to the Park Authority in return for assistance in consolidating the Schools' administrative functions and to find a facility that is more functional.

Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to include the following language:

And this was accepted.

Following further discussion, Supervisor Hyland moved to defer this item until later in the meeting. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting action was taken regarding this item. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#79.)

61. FRIENDS OF GEORGE MASON REGIONAL LIBRARY - SEMI-ANNUAL USED BOOK SALE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that the Friends of George Mason Regional Library will be holding their wildly popular semi-annual used book sale later this month. The sale will be held at the library, located at 7001 Little River Turnpike in Annandale. The hours are:

Traditionally, this is one of the most anticipated used book sales in the region, and she urged everyone to come out to support the library, and the tremendous work performed by the Friends.

62. ANNANDALE FALL FESTIVAL PARADE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that it is once again the time of the year for one of the great Fairfax County traditions--the annual Fall Festival Parade in downtown Annandale. The parade will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2000, kicking off at 10 a.m. on Columbia Pike. The Annandale Chamber of Commerce has announced that Annandale resident Helen Winter will serve as Grand Marshal.

Supervisor Gross invited Board Members and everyone in Fairfax County to come to downtown Annandale on October 28 to enjoy the parade.

63. REQUEST FOR EXPEDITED AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR THE HERITAGE BUILDING (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova said that recently, her office was contacted by the owners of the Heritage Building, which is an office building located in Annandale at the intersection of Route 236 and Heritage Drive. At this time, the owners have an approved site plan to build a second office building that would be connected to the Heritage Building by an existing parking garage. Until recently, there was a service station located at the corner of the Heritage/236 intersection, in front of the Heritage Building. The owners of the office building also own the underlying land where the service station was located.

Rather than proceed by-right to build the second office building, the owners would like to transform the service station site into an at-grade plaza that could service as a gateway into downtown Annandale. The floor area ratio from the service station site would be transferred to the proposed building. Removing the service station would eliminate some difficult turning movements at this very busy intersection and instead provide an attractive transition from the Beltway exit into downtown Annandale.

To proceed with this new conceptual plan, a number of actions would be required, including an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan as well as a rezoning. To move forward with this long awaited redevelopment effort, the owners are asking for expedited and concurrent processing of the Plan amendment, rezoning and any other related zoning amendments as well as the amended site plan. Processing the amendment, zoning and site plan simultaneously would ensure that citizen and staff concerns would be addressed in detail with continuity from conception to completion.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to expedite:

This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards nor does it prejudice the consideration of this application in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Gross asked to amend the motion to provide additional information to Mason District regarding this issue, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

64. REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova announced that Vivian Watts, Executive Director, Court Appointed Special Advocates (commonly known as CASA) is stepping down. She asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Watts to appear before the Board to be recognized for her service. Without objection, it was so ordered.

She reported that Ms. Barrett, an employee of the Department of Community and Recreation Services, went beyond the normal scope of her job to find innovative ways to allow teens to access the center.

After citing Ms. Barrett's accomplishments and sharing her letter of commendation from the police officers, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Barrett to appear before the Board at an appropriate date to receive a Certificate of Recognition for her outstanding service to the Net Teen Center, the County Police Department's West Springfield District Neighborhood Policing Unit, and the youth of Fairfax County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

73. RECOGNITION OF MEMBERS OF THE POLICE MOTORCYCLE SQUAD FOR THEIR SUPERIOR ACHIEVEMENTS IN THE MID-ATLANTIC MOTORCYCLE SAFETY RODEO (Tape 6)

The County's Police Motorcycle Squad won nearly every class of the competition, the purpose of which was to improve a rider's ability and thus improve safety and prevent injury to the rider.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board invite members of the Motorcycle Squad to appear before the Board at the next available meeting to be recognized for their superior achievements in the rodeo. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.
