ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

26. FAIRFAX COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT (FCPD) RECEIVES NATIONAL ACCLAIM FROM THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CHIEFS OF POLICE (IACP) FOR TRAFFIC SAFETY EFFORTS (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley announced that the FCPD has received national acclaim from the IACP for traffic safety efforts. She said that the Department was named the best of the best by placing first in the 2000 Championship Class as a result of awards presented in 1999.

For the fifth year, Fairfax County received top honors in the multi-jurisdictional agency category for the Washington Regional Child Passenger Team Program. On an individual basis, Master Police Officer David Bean won the prestigious J. Stannard Baker Award for his outstanding contribution to highway safety through his work in traffic crash investigation and reconstruction over the past fifteen years.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to invite the appropriate representatives from the Police Department to appear before the Board to be recognized for its outstanding achievements. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

27. VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (VDOT) SECONDARY SIX YEAR PLAN (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley stated that about this time every year the Board holds its joint public hearing with VDOT on the Secondary Six-Year Plan. She said that it has come to her attention that because of the delay in the adoption of the Virginia Development Plan (the old State Interstate and Primary Six-Year Plan), there will be a delay in finalizing the County's Secondary Six-Year Plan. Fairfax County will have almost $600,000 less this fiscal year (FY) and approximately $1.4 million less in FY 2002. VDOT will also add escalation costs to the project estimate, which will undoubtedly affect project schedule. She said that the Board needs to have the latest project cost estimates and schedule from VDOT to achieve a better understanding of the effect of reduced funding on the transportation program.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to send a letter to VDOT to request expeditious processing of project estimates and schedules so that the Secondary Six-Year Plan can be developed, and the public hearing held, as soon as possible. Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Connolly jointly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

28. LETTER FROM THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (VDOT) REGARDING DULLES TOLL ROAD (DTR) SHOULDER IMPROVEMENT (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley shared with the Board a copy of a letter she had received from VDOT regarding the DTR shoulder improvement.

She noted that the project has been completed one month in advance of the contract date and publicly thanked VDOT.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

29. CAMP VIRGINIA JAYCEE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that Camp Virginia Jaycee is a year-round residential outdoor recreation and education facility located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. This nonprofit organization has been serving children and adults with mental retardation throughout Virginia for almost 30 years.

Supervisor Mendelsohn applauded the outstanding efforts of this organization, including the opportunities that are provided for outdoor education and recreation to individuals from the Northern Virginia Training Center.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review the $120,000 gift request by the Camp Virginia Jaycee Board of Directors for its endowment to be considered for funding as part of the Fiscal Year 2002 budget.

Following discussion, Supervisor Mendelsohn clarified that the request was to be in the form of a Consideration Item and that staff be directed to evaluate this issue to determine if it would appropriately be considered in the Consolidated Community Funding Pool.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

30. MCLEAN HIGH SCHOOL RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD), DISTRICT 21 (Tape 5)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the residents of Tyndale Street from Rupert Street to Margie Street have petitioned the Board to be included in the McLean High School RPPD District 21. This location represents residential streets that are within 2000 feet of a pedestrian entrance to McLean High School.

Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board:

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

31. DOGWOOD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins said that in cases of emergency, many of the parents who live near Dogwood Elementary School were able to walk to the school to pick up their children. Since the fire at the school, Dogwood students have been assigned to schools throughout Reston and Herndon. A school administrator raised the concern that many Dogwood parents may have difficult traveling to the new school sites to pick up a child in an emergency.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board approve the allocation of 10 free Fairfax Connector coupons to assist Dogwood Elementary School parents with transportation when picking up children in an emergency. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

There was a brief discussion of this item.

32. RAIL-TO-BUS TRANSFERS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the rail-to-bus transfers are not uncommon and for riders on Metro to transfer to the Fairfax Connector they would need bus transfer tickets, which are obtainable at the rail station. A concern and observation has been raised that on December 1, 2000, riders presenting bus transfer tickets from the Foggy Bottom station to Fairfax Connector drivers were not accepted by the bus drivers. This appears to be due to illegible or blank bus transfer tickets issued at the rail stations with the assurances from the rail attendees that the transfer tickets were valid despite the illegible or blank tickets. Once presenting them to the bus drivers, riders soon discovered that their tickets would not be accepted. This incident does not appear to be an isolated incident, but one that appears to be recurring.

While officials strive to make public transportation a seamless commute, Supervisor Hudgins said that telling riders that they cannot board the Fairfax Connector using transfers because rail-to-bus transfer tickets are not being accepted, quickly becomes a deterrent from their use of public transportation.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to:

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to:

This was accepted.

Following discussion, the question was called o the motion, as amended, and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

33. PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins said that on March 7, 2000, a cyclist was injured attempting to cross Sunset Hills Road on the W&OD trail in the pedestrian crosswalk. She referred to a letter from a constituent to Judge Richard Horan regarding the trial of the cyclist injured in this accident. In the letter, the constituent notes Judge Horan misstated the rules that pedestrian crosswalks do not apply to bicycles.

Supervisor Hudgins said that the rules that apply to a pedestrian crosswalk, by virtue of the Code of Virginia, also apply to cyclists in the crosswalk. The Code of Virginia, Title 46.2, Chapter 8 - Regulation of Traffic- Article I - General and Miscellaneous, Section 46.2-904 states "A person riding a bicycle on a sidewalk, or across a roadway on a crosswalk, shall have all the rights and duties of a pedestrian under the same circumstances." There are stop signs on the W&OD trail; however, the signs are not mandated by the Virginia Department of Transportation. The signs on the trail were placed there by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, which supplement the existing statue 46.2-924 that states, "No pedestrian shall enter or cross an intersection in disregard of approaching traffic."

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Virginia General Assembly recently passed House Bill 932, "Right of Way of Pedestrians" which amends Title 46.2. House Bill 932, signed by the Governor, went into effect July 1, 2000, as Chapter 323. The amendment summary as passed allows Arlington County and the City of Alexandria, by ordinance, to provide for the installation and maintenance of highway signs specifically requiring motorist to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians in marked crosswalks. Any operator of a motor vehicle who fails to yield the right-of-way as required by such signs will be guilty of a traffic infraction punishable by a fine of no less than $100 and no more than $500. The Commonwealth Transportation Board is to develop criteria for the design, locations and installation of such signs. The bill does not apply to any limited access highway.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board refer to the Legislative Committee for consideration of legislation which will allow Fairfax County to post specific signs requiring motorists to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and cyclist in crosswalks and allowing for associated fines for infraction. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to review this issue now and if it is determined that there is a need for legislation, the Board will go on record as endorsing it, and this was accepted.

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

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel Chairman Hanley.

35. PINE RIDGE PARK (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross announced that on December 7, 2000, the School Board unanimously approved the transfer of the Pine Ridge site to the Fairfax County Park Authority, assuring at last that Pine Ridge will remain a park. This agreement is the culmination of years of effort, and thanks are owed to many people, including the Members of the Board, countless members of County staff, and especially the many citizens who would accept nothing less than the absolute assurance that the Pine Ridge site would remain a park permanently.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the County Executive and the County Attorney to finalize the agreement transferring the title of the Pine Ridge site to the Fairfax County Park Authority as soon as possible. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

39. AAA BOND RATING (Tapes 5-6)

Supervisor Connolly reminded the Board that at a recent meeting he had requested data regarding the savings the County had realized over the years because of its AAA bond rating. He referred the Board and members of the media to a memorandum from Edward L. Long, Jr., Chief Financial Officer, dated December 4, 2000, in which he stated that over the last 22 years, the County had saved the equivalent of $150.7 million in interest costs because of the rating. This is the equivalent of approximately $7 million a year, which averages to one cent on the tax rate.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide a status report on the self-imposed criteria for maintaining the AAA bond rating. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to determine whether:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Connolly stated that the Board recently approved an OTPA for the Virginia Center site located north of the Vienna/Fairfax/GMU Metro Station. This site was previously planned for office development. With the approval of the OTPA, the plan now has an option for residential development.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Office of the County Executive to schedule a public hearing for the Virginia Center Limited Partnerships' Rezoning Application RZ 2000-PR-041 to be held before the Board on January 22, 2001. He noted that this action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

41. RECREATION CENTER SPORTS TEAMS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly stated that it had recently been called to his attention that young people who play on a recreation center football team in the fall may not be able to stay with the same teammates and coach in the next sports season (e.g. basketball) because the next sport may have different eligibility rules. He asserted that this is burdensome as well as discouraging to the youth. He noted that lessons from team play include fellowship and mutual support and these lessons, as well as mentorship by coaches, should be supported.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the staff of the Department of Community and Recreation Services, in conjunction with the Athletic Council, to assess eligibility requirements for all sports played by Recreation Center teams and to provide the Board with recommendations that assure uniformity in eligibility and protect participation by all of the youth, especially in the County's minority communities. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and clarified it as only applying to teams that are sponsored by the recreation center, not teams that happen to play in the recreation center.

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

42. NUTLEY STREET (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly expressed his appreciation to the Board for its support in adding Nutley Street to the State's Secondary System and he noted that this action was accomplished.

43. RECOGNITION OF THE COUNTY'S GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM (GIS) PROGRAM (Tape 6)

Pending receipt of information that the Board had already done so, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives of the GIS staff to appear before the Board to be recognized for national awards won by the program. Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

44. FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF KINGSTOWNE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman reminded the Board that the First Baptist Church of Kingstowne on Hayfield Road was destroyed by fire in March 2000. Since that time the congregation has been meeting in a temporary building. The congregation is proceeding with proposals for a new sanctuary that will be 20 feet closer to Hayfield Road. Because of this change, a special permit amendment is required.

To facilitate the timely construction and permanent replacement for the new church home, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to process concurrently the necessary site and building plans with the special permit amendment applications. He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with any regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards and does not prejudice the consideration of the special permit application in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

45. BOARD RECESS (Tape 6)

At 12:15 p.m., the Board recessed briefly and, at 12:20 p.m., reconvened in the Board Auditorium with all Members present, with the exception of Supervisor Frey, and with Chairman Hanley presiding.

46. SALES TAX PROPOSAL (Tape 6)

Supervisor McConnell presented a Board Matter, copies of which were distributed to the Board, that addressed dedicated funding for school and transportation projects by a proposed one penny increase in the sales tax on every dollar over a ten year period. She stated that this proposal was an outgrowth of discussions she had with officials in other jurisdictions, specifically her hometown of Jacksonville, Florida where road projects are often successfully funded from a dedicated funding source, specifically an increase in sales tax. Citizens in that area passed a referendum to enact such a funding source.

Supervisor McConnell read a letter she planned to send to her constituents that urged them to present their views on this sales tax proposal to members of the General Assembly. As a Dillon Rule state, the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia must legislatively provide the local jurisdictions with the authority to hold a referendum to determine whether citizens would be willing to invest in school and transportation projects through an increase in the sales tax. She distributed a draft list of proposed transportation and school projects, respectively, that might be funded by such a method. She also distributed copies of sales and use tax rates for all 50 states and noted that Virginia has one of the lowest rates on the East Coast.

Following discussion, Supervisor McConnell stated that she would raise this proposal with members of the Fairfax delegation to the General Assembly at the legislative breakfast scheduled for Friday, December 15, 2000, at 7:30 a.m. at the Fairview Park Marriott. She did note that this proposal is not part of the County's legislative program for 2001 and that she hoped to enlist support for its introduction in 2002.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

26. FAIRFAX COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT (FCPD) RECEIVES NATIONAL ACCLAIM FROM THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CHIEFS OF POLICE (IACP) FOR TRAFFIC SAFETY EFFORTS (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley announced that the FCPD has received national acclaim from the IACP for traffic safety efforts. She said that the Department was named the best of the best by placing first in the 2000 Championship Class as a result of awards presented in 1999.

For the fifth year, Fairfax County received top honors in the multi-jurisdictional agency category for the Washington Regional Child Passenger Team Program. On an individual basis, Master Police Officer David Bean won the prestigious J. Stannard Baker Award for his outstanding contribution to highway safety through his work in traffic crash investigation and reconstruction over the past fifteen years.

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

27. VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (VDOT) SECONDARY SIX YEAR PLAN (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley stated that about this time every year the Board holds its joint public hearing with VDOT on the Secondary Six-Year Plan. She said that it has come to her attention that because of the delay in the adoption of the Virginia Development Plan (the old State Interstate and Primary Six-Year Plan), there will be a delay in finalizing the County's Secondary Six-Year Plan. Fairfax County will have almost $600,000 less this fiscal year (FY) and approximately $1.4 million less in FY 2002. VDOT will also add escalation costs to the project estimate, which will undoubtedly affect project schedule. She said that the Board needs to have the latest project cost estimates and schedule from VDOT to achieve a better understanding of the effect of reduced funding on the transportation program.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to send a letter to VDOT to request expeditious processing of project estimates and schedules so that the Secondary Six-Year Plan can be developed, and the public hearing held, as soon as possible. Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Connolly jointly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

A school administrator raised the concern that many Dogwood parents may have difficult traveling to the new school sites to pick up a child in an emergency.

There was a brief discussion of this item.

32. RAIL-TO-BUS TRANSFERS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the rail-to-bus transfers are not uncommon and for riders on Metro to transfer to the Fairfax Connector they would need bus transfer tickets, which are obtainable at the rail station. A concern and observation has been raised that on December 1, 2000, riders presenting bus transfer tickets from the Foggy Bottom station to Fairfax Connector drivers were not accepted by the bus drivers. This appears to be due to illegible or blank bus transfer tickets issued at the rail stations with the assurances from the rail attendees that the transfer tickets were valid despite the illegible or blank tickets. Once presenting them to the bus drivers, riders soon discovered that their tickets would not be accepted. This incident does not appear to be an isolated incident, but one that appears to be recurring.

While officials strive to make public transportation a seamless commute, Supervisor Hudgins said that telling riders that they cannot board the Fairfax Connector using transfers because rail-to-bus transfer tickets are not being accepted, quickly becomes a deterrent from their use of public transportation.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to:

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to:

This was accepted.

Following discussion, the question was called o the motion, as amended, and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

33. PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins said that on March 7, 2000, a cyclist was injured attempting to cross Sunset Hills Road on the W&OD trail in the pedestrian crosswalk. She referred to a letter from a constituent to Judge Richard Horan regarding the trial of the cyclist injured in this accident. In the letter, the constituent notes Judge Horan misstated the rules that pedestrian crosswalks do not apply to bicycles.

Supervisor Hudgins said that the rules that apply to a pedestrian crosswalk, by virtue of the Code of Virginia, also apply to cyclists in the crosswalk. The Code of Virginia, Title 46.2, Chapter 8 - Regulation of Traffic- Article I - General and Miscellaneous, Section 46.2-904 states "A person riding a bicycle on a sidewalk, or across a roadway on a crosswalk, shall have all the rights and duties of a pedestrian under the same circumstances." There are stop signs on the W&OD trail; however, the signs are not mandated by the Virginia Department of Transportation. The signs on the trail were placed there by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, which supplement the existing statue 46.2-924 that states, "No pedestrian shall enter or cross an intersection in disregard of approaching traffic."

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Virginia General Assembly recently passed House Bill 932, "Right of Way of Pedestrians" which amends Title 46.2. House Bill 932, signed by the Governor, went into effect July 1, 2000, as Chapter 323. The amendment summary as passed allows Arlington County and the City of Alexandria, by ordinance, to provide for the installation and maintenance of highway signs specifically requiring motorist to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians in marked crosswalks. Any operator of a motor vehicle who fails to yield the right-of-way as required by such signs will be guilty of a traffic infraction punishable by a fine of no less than $100 and no more than $500. The Commonwealth Transportation Board is to develop criteria for the design, locations and installation of such signs. The bill does not apply to any limited access highway.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board refer to the Legislative Committee for consideration of legislation which will allow Fairfax County to post specific signs requiring motorists to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and cyclist in crosswalks and allowing for associated fines for infraction. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to direct staff to review this issue now and if it is determined that there is a need for legislation, the Board will go on record as endorsing it, and this was accepted.

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

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel Chairman Hanley.

34. RIBBON-CUTTING CEREMONY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins announced that there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Fairfax County Parkway/Wiehle Avenue to Baron Cameron Run. The ceremony is scheduled for December 20, 2000, at 10 a.m.

35. PINE RIDGE PARK (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross announced that on December 7, 2000, the School Board unanimously approved the transfer of the Pine Ridge site to the Fairfax County Park Authority, assuring at last that Pine Ridge will remain a park. This agreement is the culmination of years of effort, and thanks are owed to many people, including the Members of the Board, countless members of County staff, and especially the many citizens who would accept nothing less than the absolute assurance that the Pine Ridge site would remain a park permanently.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the County Executive and the County Attorney to finalize the agreement transferring the title of the Pine Ridge site to the Fairfax County Park Authority as soon as possible. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

39. AAA BOND RATING (Tapes 5-6)

Supervisor Connolly reminded the Board that at a recent meeting he had requested data regarding the savings the County had realized over the years because of its AAA bond rating. He referred the Board and members of the media to a memorandum from Edward L. Long, Jr., Chief Financial Officer, dated December 4, 2000, in which he stated that over the last 22 years, the County had saved the equivalent of $150.7 million in interest costs because of the rating. This is the equivalent of approximately $7 million a year, which averages to one cent on the tax rate.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide a status report on the self-imposed criteria for maintaining the AAA bond rating. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to determine whether:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the information on the savings achieved with the AAA bond rating, as well as information about the tax rate, to School Superintendent Daniel Domenech and the members of the School Board. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to include a general presentation on bonds ("Bonds 101") when the Board meets with the School Board about budget issues. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to document the events relating to changes in school bond funding by the Board and how that relates to the budget guidelines. Without objection, it was so ordered.

40. SCHEDULING OF THE PUBLIC HEARING FOR AN OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT (OTPA) FOR THE VIRGINIA CENTER SITE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly stated that the Board recently approved an OTPA for the Virginia Center site located north of the Vienna/Fairfax/GMU Metro Station. This site was previously planned for office development. With the approval of the OTPA, the plan now has an option for residential development.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Office of the County Executive to schedule a public hearing for the Virginia Center Limited Partnerships' Rezoning Application RZ 2000-PR-041 to be held before the Board on January 22, 2001. He noted that this action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

41. RECREATION CENTER SPORTS TEAMS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly stated that it had recently been called to his attention that young people who play on a recreation center football team in the fall may not be able to stay with the same teammates and coach in the next sports season (e.g. basketball) because the next sport may have different eligibility rules. He asserted that this is burdensome as well as discouraging to the youth. He noted that lessons from team play include fellowship and mutual support and these lessons, as well as mentorship by coaches, should be supported.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the staff of the Department of Community and Recreation Services, in conjunction with the Athletic Council, to assess eligibility requirements for all sports played by Recreation Center teams and to provide the Board with recommendations that assure uniformity in eligibility and protect participation by all of the youth, especially in the County's minority communities. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and clarified it as only applying to teams that are sponsored by the recreation center, not teams that happen to play in the recreation center.

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

42. NUTLEY STREET (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly expressed his appreciation to the Board for its support in adding Nutley Street to the State's Secondary System and he noted that this action was accomplished. He asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to examine the extension of the no parking area along Nutley Street. Without objection, it was so ordered.

43. RECOGNITION OF THE COUNTY'S GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM (GIS) PROGRAM (Tape 6)

Pending receipt of information that the Board had already done so, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives of the GIS staff to appear before the Board to be recognized for national awards won by the program. Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

44. FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF KINGSTOWNE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman reminded the Board that the First Baptist Church of Kingstowne on Hayfield Road was destroyed by fire in March 2000. Since that time the congregation has been meeting in a temporary building. The congregation is proceeding with proposals for a new sanctuary that will be 20 feet closer to Hayfield Road. Because of this change, a special permit amendment is required.

To facilitate the timely construction and permanent replacement for the new church home, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to process concurrently the necessary site and building plans with the special permit amendment applications. He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with any regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards and does not prejudice the consideration of the special permit application in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

45. BOARD RECESS (Tape 6)

At 12:15 p.m., the Board recessed briefly and, at 12:20 p.m., reconvened in the Board Auditorium with all Members present, with the exception of Supervisor Frey, and with Chairman Hanley presiding.

46. SALES TAX PROPOSAL (Tape 6)

Supervisor McConnell presented a Board Matter, copies of which were distributed to the Board, that addressed dedicated funding for school and transportation projects by a proposed one penny increase in the sales tax on every dollar over a ten year period. She stated that this proposal was an outgrowth of discussions she had with officials in other jurisdictions, specifically her hometown of Jacksonville, Florida where road projects are often successfully funded from a dedicated funding source, specifically an increase in sales tax. Citizens in that area passed a referendum to enact such a funding source.

Supervisor McConnell read a letter she planned to send to her constituents that urged them to present their views on this sales tax proposal to members of the General Assembly. As a Dillon Rule state, the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia must legislatively provide the local jurisdictions with the authority to hold a referendum to determine whether citizens would be willing to invest in school and transportation projects through an increase in the sales tax. She distributed a draft list of proposed transportation and school projects, respectively, that might be funded by such a method. She also distributed copies of sales and use tax rates for all 50 states and noted that Virginia has one of the lowest rates on the East Coast.

Following discussion, Supervisor McConnell stated that she would raise this proposal with members of the Fairfax delegation to the General Assembly at the legislative breakfast scheduled for Friday, December 15, 2000, at 7:30 a.m. at the Fairview Park Marriott. She did note that this proposal is not part of the County's legislative program for 2001 and that she hoped to enlist support for its introduction in 2002.

47. RECESS/CLOSED SESSION (Tape 6)
