Supervisor Frey said that Madison Homes has consolidated 11 of 13 lots on the west side of Rugby Road within the Murray Farms Subdivision. Currently the Comprehensive Plan language for this area recommends residential density at 1-2 dwelling units per acre (du/ac) with an option for development at a density of 4-5 du/ac with 100 percent consolidation of the Murray Farms subdivision on both the east and west sides of Rugby Road with the exception of the church property and any property approved for institutional use. Since adoption of the Plan, the Church has acquired additional vacant land on the east side of Rugby Road and there is a possibility that the property at the corner of Rugby Road and Route 50 will be developed by a child care provider. With the existing church and institutional use approved on the west side of Rugby Road, only two parcels remain that could be consolidated on the west side of Rugby Road and consolidation of these two parcels would not substantially enhance any development proposal on the west side of the road. The developer has stated that he believes he can demonstrate that development of the 11 lots included in the consolidation on the west side of the road can proceed while permitting the two remaining lots on the west side to be developed in a like manner so as to appear as a unified community.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to evaluate the language option of separating the east and west sides of Rugby Road in relation to the consolidation requirement. The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

Accordingly, in light of the instance of this minor expansion, she moved that the Board waive the application fees. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following brief input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, who noted that this action is permissible, the question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

47. EXPEDITED PROCESSING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 00-V-052 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that he had recently been asked by the attorney representing Exxon/Mobil Corporation to request expedited public hearing dates for Special Exception Application SE 00-V-052. To comply with Federal guidelines, Exxon/Mobil was required to make improvements to its existing Newington Petroleum Storage Facility. The application has been submitted to permit a minor building addition as well as to add new pipes and a vapor recovery unit that could qualify as "repair and maintenance." However, the County's Zoning Administrator considers the vapor recovery unit a new structure that must be shown on an approved SE plat.

Accordingly, because of the simple nature of Special Exception Application SE 00-V-052, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the processing of this application. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

48. CHRISTMAS 2000 AT BELLE HAVEN (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that for the past 23 years, the children of Belle Haven, a subdivision in the Mount Vernon District, had enjoyed being visited by Santa Claus at Willard Circle. Those who sat on Santa’s knee received a small gift in commemoration of the Christmas holiday.

Supervisor Hyland reported that this year, the Belle Haven Civic Association, which sponsors the community festivities, decided the time had come to reconsider the meaning of Christmas and some changes will take place at Willard Circle. Santa will again visit the Belle Haven community, but this time the children in this community will be bringing new, unwrapped toys TO Santa at Willard Circle for donation to the United Community Ministries so that other children could experience the joy of the holiday season.

In recognition of this generous act, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the Chairman to write a letter to both the Board of Directors of the Belle Haven Civic Association and to the boys and girls of the Belle Haven community expressing recognition and appreciation of their thoughtful and caring gesture during this holiday season. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

49. NO BOARD MATTERS TO PRESENT FOR SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT SUPERVISOR ELAINE McCONNELL (Tape 6)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed the successes of Centreville High School sports teams. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#37.)

Supervisor McConnell stated that she had no Board Matters to present today. However, she did note, for the record, that Centreville High School is located in the Springfield District.

50. OUT OF TURN PLAN AMENDMENT (OTPA) FOR THE NORTHERN PORTION OF LAND UNIT I OF THE I-95 CORRIDOR INDUSTRIAL AREA (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that the Board recently approved a rezoning for residential use on property located south of the Island Creek development in the vicinity of Cinder Bed Road. This new residential development will be adjacent to the portion of the I-95 Corridor Industrial Area which is located east of Cinder Bed Road. He said that there is very little Comprehensive Plan guidance that adequately addresses the relationship between the planned and existing industrial and residential uses in this area.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize an OTPA for the northern portion of Land Unit I of the I-95 Corridor Industrial Area [Tax Maps 99-2((1)) parcels 17 through 29, 99-2((10)) parcel F, and 90-4((11)) parcel D]. This proposed Plan amendment should consider the types of industrial uses and intensities that are appropriate in this area as well as the transitions, buffers, and other measures that may be needed to enhance the compatibility of this area with the adjacent residential communities. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

51. OUT OF TURN PLAN AMENDMENT (OTPA) FOR THE AREA LOCATED BETWEEN MANOR DRIVE, RICHMOND HIGHWAY, FRYE ROAD, AND SKY VIEW DRIVE (Tape 6)

With reference to his second written Board Matter, Supervisor Kauffman stated that this Plan amendment would help in some of the upgrade efforts in the Richmond Highway Corridor involving significant assemblages for residential use.

Supervisor Kauffman stated that on September 25, 2000, a Rezoning/Final Development Plan Application RZ/FDPA 2000-LE-051 was filed to rezone 14.3 acres located south of Manor Drive between Frye Road and Sky View Drive from C-8 and R-2 Districts to a PDH-12 District. This application proposes to consolidate and redevelop all or part of 22 existing residential properties that were primarily built in the 1940s and 1950s.

Supervisor Kauffman said that the current plan for the area provides an option for redeveloping this area with a mix of residential use at 8-12 dwelling units per acre (du/ac) and townhouse-style office use up to .35 floor area ratio. This mixed use option is conditioned on substantial parcel consolidation being achieved between the commercial and residential properties in this block.

Supervisor Kauffman noted that surrounding properties on the east and west are developed with garden apartments in the 16-20 du/ac range and highway-oriented commercial properties that are located to the south along Richmond Highway. He said that while the applicant has consolidated much of the residential properties, substantial consolidation of commercial properties as recommended in the Plan has not been achieved since there appears to be little demand for townhouse office use in that area.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize an OTPA for the area located between Manor Drive, Richmond Highway, Frye Road, and Sky View Drive (Area 20 of the Suburban Neighborhood between Hybla Valley/Gum Springs and Woodlawn Community Business Centers in the Richmond Highway Corridor). This proposed Plan amendment should consider changes to the:

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

52. RECESS/CLOSED SESSION (Tape 6)

At 1 p.m., Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board recess and go into closed session for discussion and consideration of matters enumerated in Virginia Code Section 2.1-344 and listed in the agenda for this meeting, and in addition:

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

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

39. OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT FOR RATCLIFFE ASSOCIATES (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey said that Ratcliffe Associates, LC has been pursuing the acquisition of property known as the Ratcliffe Subdivision. Approximately 22.5 acres have been consolidated and a special exception application for housing for the elderly is to be filed in early December 2000. While the application will conform to the recommended density of the Comprehensive Plan, the applicant has proposed an amendment to the transportation recommendations to address issues regarding access to Route 29 and the vacation of Johnson Avenue, a street that has been dedicated but not constructed. This amendment will facilitate a review of the proposal and may be processed concurrently with the special exception application.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board:

The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to direct staff to consult with the appropriate officials and report at the Board's next meeting on the status of the Annual Plan Review process, and this was accepted.

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

40. OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT FOR MURRAY FARMS SUBDIVISION (RUGBY ROAD) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey said that Madison Homes has consolidated 11 of 13 lots on the west side of Rugby Road within the Murray Farms Subdivision. Currently the Comprehensive Plan language for this area recommends residential density at 1-2 dwelling units per acre (du/ac) with an option for development at a density of 4-5 du/ac with 100 percent consolidation of the Murray Farms subdivision on both the east and west sides of Rugby Road with the exception of the church property and any property approved for institutional use. Since adoption of the Plan, the Church has acquired additional vacant land on the east side of Rugby Road and there is a possibility that the property at the corner of Rugby Road and Route 50 will be developed by a child care provider. With the existing church and institutional use approved on the west side of Rugby Road, only two parcels remain that could be consolidated on the west side of Rugby Road and consolidation of these two parcels would not substantially enhance any development proposal on the west side of the road. The developer has stated that he believes he can demonstrate that development of the 11 lots included in the consolidation on the west side of the road can proceed while permitting the two remaining lots on the west side to be developed in a like manner so as to appear as a unified community.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to evaluate the language option of separating the east and west sides of Rugby Road in relation to the consolidation requirement. The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

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

42. MS. KEIRA CARLSTROM WINS STATE CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIP (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly announced that Keira Carlstrom, the only runner from the Oakton High School girls' cross country team to qualify for the State championship this year, won the State championship by completing the course 14 seconds faster than her nearest competitor. Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Carlstrom to appear before the Board to be recognized for this achievement. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

Following discussion, with input from Debra A. Bianchi, Acting Director, Office of Public Affairs, Supervisor Connolly noted that this invitation could be extended for a Board meeting next year.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board celebrated the Park Authority's fiftieth anniversary. See Clerk's Summary Items CL#2 and CL#4.)

In conjunction with the Park Authority's fiftieth anniversary, Supervisor Gross distributed to the Board new logo auto decals for Green Spring Gardens Park. The decals feature witch hazel and she noted that Green Spring Gardens has been designated nationally for its witch hazel (Hamamelis) collection. Witch hazel is a native medicinal shrub.

Supervisor Gross announced that the fifth annual Mason District Holiday Town Gathering would be held Tuesday, December 5, 2000, at 7:30 p.m. at the Mason District Governmental Center, 6507 Columbia Pike in Annandale. This informal gathering will include refreshments, entertainment by the Alban Chorale, and an opportunity for residents to talk with her and other officials about issues of concern.

Supervisor Gross stated that the residents of the Lee Boulevard Heights community are requesting expansion of the existing Munson Hill RPPD to include Olin Drive between Brook Drive and the Route 50 service road. She noted that she recently received the petition and forwarded it to the Department of Transportation. Accordingly, in light of the instance of this minor expansion, she moved that the Board waive the application fees. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following brief input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, who noted that this action is permissible, the question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

47. EXPEDITED PROCESSING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 00-V-052 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that he had recently been asked by the attorney representing Exxon/Mobil Corporation to request expedited public hearing dates for Special Exception Application SE 00-V-052. To comply with Federal guidelines, Exxon/Mobil was required to make improvements to its existing Newington Petroleum Storage Facility. The application has been submitted to permit a minor building addition as well as to add new pipes and a vapor recovery unit that could qualify as "repair and maintenance." However, the County's Zoning Administrator considers the vapor recovery unit a new structure that must be shown on an approved SE plat.

Accordingly, because of the simple nature of Special Exception Application SE 00-V-052, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the processing of this application. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

48. CHRISTMAS 2000 AT BELLE HAVEN (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that for the past 23 years, the children of Belle Haven, a subdivision in the Mount Vernon District, had enjoyed being visited by Santa Claus at Willard Circle. Those who sat on Santa’s knee received a small gift in commemoration of the Christmas holiday.

Supervisor Hyland reported that this year, the Belle Haven Civic Association, which sponsors the community festivities, decided the time had come to reconsider the meaning of Christmas and some changes will take place at Willard Circle. Santa will again visit the Belle Haven community, but this time the children in this community will be bringing new, unwrapped toys TO Santa at Willard Circle for donation to the United Community Ministries so that other children could experience the joy of the holiday season.

In recognition of this generous act, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the Chairman to write a letter to both the Board of Directors of the Belle Haven Civic Association and to the boys and girls of the Belle Haven community expressing recognition and appreciation of their thoughtful and caring gesture during this holiday season. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

49. NO BOARD MATTERS TO PRESENT FOR SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT SUPERVISOR ELAINE McCONNELL (Tape 6)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed the successes of Centreville High School sports teams. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#37.)

Supervisor McConnell stated that she had no Board Matters to present today. However, she did note, for the record, that Centreville High School is located in the Springfield District.

50. OUT OF TURN PLAN AMENDMENT (OTPA) FOR THE NORTHERN PORTION OF LAND UNIT I OF THE I-95 CORRIDOR INDUSTRIAL AREA (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that the Board recently approved a rezoning for residential use on property located south of the Island Creek development in the vicinity of Cinder Bed Road. This new residential development will be adjacent to the portion of the I-95 Corridor Industrial Area which is located east of Cinder Bed Road. He said that there is very little Comprehensive Plan guidance that adequately addresses the relationship between the planned and existing industrial and residential uses in this area.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize an OTPA for the northern portion of Land Unit I of the I-95 Corridor Industrial Area [Tax Maps 99-2((1)) parcels 17 through 29, 99-2((10)) parcel F, and 90-4((11)) parcel D]. This proposed Plan amendment should consider the types of industrial uses and intensities that are appropriate in this area as well as the transitions, buffers, and other measures that may be needed to enhance the compatibility of this area with the adjacent residential communities. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

51. OUT OF TURN PLAN AMENDMENT (OTPA) FOR THE AREA LOCATED BETWEEN MANOR DRIVE, RICHMOND HIGHWAY, FRYE ROAD, AND SKY VIEW DRIVE (Tape 6)

With reference to his second written Board Matter, Supervisor Kauffman stated that this Plan amendment would help in some of the upgrade efforts in the Richmond Highway Corridor involving significant assemblages for residential use.

Supervisor Kauffman stated that on September 25, 2000, a Rezoning/Final Development Plan Application RZ/FDPA 2000-LE-051 was filed to rezone 14.3 acres located south of Manor Drive between Frye Road and Sky View Drive from C-8 and R-2 Districts to a PDH-12 District. This application proposes to consolidate and redevelop all or part of 22 existing residential properties that were primarily built in the 1940s and 1950s.

Supervisor Kauffman said that the current plan for the area provides an option for redeveloping this area with a mix of residential use at 8-12 dwelling units per acre (du/ac) and townhouse-style office use up to .35 floor area ratio. This mixed use option is conditioned on substantial parcel consolidation being achieved between the commercial and residential properties in this block.

Supervisor Kauffman noted that surrounding properties on the east and west are developed with garden apartments in the 16-20 du/ac range and highway-oriented commercial properties that are located to the south along Richmond Highway. He said that while the applicant has consolidated much of the residential properties, substantial consolidation of commercial properties as recommended in the Plan has not been achieved since there appears to be little demand for townhouse office use in that area.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize an OTPA for the area located between Manor Drive, Richmond Highway, Frye Road, and Sky View Drive (Area 20 of the Suburban Neighborhood between Hybla Valley/Gum Springs and Woodlawn Community Business Centers in the Richmond Highway Corridor). This proposed Plan amendment should consider changes to the:

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

52. RECESS/CLOSED SESSION (Tape 6)

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