Summit Properties proposes to modify the layout of Land Bay 4 to address engineering issues and to permit modifications to the unit type which will require approval of a Proffer Condition Amendment, and Conceptual and Final Development Plan Amendments.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to concurrently process the necessary site and/or subdivision plan(s) associated with these zoning applications. This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards and does not prejudice the consideration of the zoning applications in any way.

As part of the development proposal, KSI would construct an interparcel connection from the extension of Skyhawk Drive to the property to the north. The Sully District Council has reviewed this proposed development option and has no objection at this time.

The Fairfax County Police Department, Cellular One, Motorola, and the Wireless Foundation recently began participation in "Donate a Phone." This is a nationwide effort to collect one million unused wireless telephones. The telephones will be refurbished and programmed to call 911, the Fairfax County Public Safety non-emergency number, and the Virginia Domestic Violence Hotline in the event someone needs assistance. Joining the Fairfax Police Department in this effort are police from the City of Fairfax, the Town of Vienna, and the Stafford County Sheriff's Department.

In the few months since the collection began, over 6,000 phones have been donated. On Thursday, November 16, 2000, Crime Prevention Officer Ed O'Carroll, driving a truckload of cell phones weighing more than 8,500 pounds, left on a journey to a cell- phone rehab site in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

This fall they have begun catering the monthly dinners of Phi Delta Kappa for about 100 people. This major contract, which has in the past been awarded to hotels and restaurants, was awarded to the Falls Church students after Phi Delta Kappa members attended the Superintendent's Business Partnership Awards' Dinner at the end of last school year where some 300 business and school leaders were treated to the student's work.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board invite the students of the Falls Church High School Culinary Arts Program, their teacher Lorraine Martineaux, and Principal Vera Blake to appear before the Board at a December meeting and be honored for their outstanding, professional accomplishments in the community. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

60. DESIGN OF PEDESTRIAN FACILITIES (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly noted that the Tysons Corner area will receive $500,000 in Job Access Funds for implementation of pedestrian access facilities.

This will take some time to be completed and approved.

In the meantime, Delegate Jim Scott's HJR 276 Committee has identified the priority pedestrian projects to be constructed with the earmarked funds and would like to initiate design of the projects.

To take advantage of the time available between now and when the grant application has been approved, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board approve an amount of up to $300,000 from the Tysons Transportation Fund to allow design of the priority pedestrian facilities to proceed without delay. This amount may supplement the $1 million in Job Access Funds or may be used as part of the required match for the funds, if needed. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

61. RENAMING OF SAIC DRIVE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that Goodridge Drive was renamed SAIC Drive to reflect the major presence of the SAIC Corporation in Tysons Corner. However, following the renaming, issues arose concerning access to the Booz-Allen complex, which, though addressed on Greensboro Drive, has its main entrance on what is now SAIC Drive. Representatives from SAIC and Booz-Allen have been meeting with staff and his office to develop a compromise that will allow SAIC to retain its SAIC Drive address while respecting the location of the main entrance to the Booz-Allen complex.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff rename the current SAIC Drive to Solutions Drive, and to assign the name of SAIC Drive to the existing road on the periphery of the SAIC Building, which runs from Route 7 around the Northwest side of the building to end at the building's main entrance. The responsibility for manufacturing and installing any new or additional signage will be the responsibility of SAIC and Booz-Allen. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.
