34. EARTHQUAKE DEVASTATES EL SALVADOR (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said that on January 13, 2001, Central America was devastated by an earthquake measuring 7.6 on the Richter scale. The hardest hit was El Salvador, leaving more than 46,000 people homeless and more than 1,200 people dead. Many of the deaths were caused by mudslides that covered several towns leaving the residents buried. Because many of El Salvador's citizens were left homeless, much aid is needed to help care for the victims of this earthquake. The Hispanic Community has begun to raise money to help the victims. A Spanish-Language Radiothon Fundraiser was held on Saturday January 20, 2001, with local area restaurants collecting donations.

Supervisor Connolly said that much more money is needed to help the victims during this time of need. St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Northern Virginia is collecting money that will be personally taken to El Salvador by Father Eugino Hoyos. The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and the American Salvadoran Association of Virginia is collecting money to help aid the victims. All donations are tax deductible and will go to rebuild El Salvador. The American Red Cross and many other non- profit organizations will also be taking donations.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to publicize through Channel 16 and the County website the opportunities to make donations which will help rebuild the lives of many who have lost everything during this natural disaster.

This meeting generates an attendance of 350 to 450 persons.

Supervisor Hyland announced that Chairman Hanley; Supervisor Kauffman; Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive; and School Superintendent, Daniel Domenech will be participating. Although the Town Meeting is directed primarily to residents of Mount Vernon and those along Richmond Highway, the meeting is open to all citizens of Fairfax County, providing a local forum to hear first hand the significant issues involving Mount Vernon, as well as Countywide, while creating the opportunity for citizens to meet their elected representatives and express their views and concerns.

41. CHRISTIAN RELIEF SERVICES (CRS) (Tape 4)

42. AN ALERT FROM THE IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION SERVICE (INS) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hyland said that he recently received a letter from Mr. Orantes, regarding an information campaign recently adopted by the Board of Supervisors of Los Angeles County, California, concerning the extension of Section 245(I) of the Legal Immigration and Family Equity (LIFE) Act.

Supervisor Hyland said that the INS advisory notifies the public that the agency is moving very quickly to develop application procedures for immigration benefits created by the LIFE Act. The public will be informed as procedures are finalized.

Supervisor Hyland said that one of the provisions of the LIFE Act is the temporary reinstatement of Section 245(I) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Section 245(I) is not amnesty for all persons unlawfully in the US. This provision only applies to certain persons residing in the US who, although otherwise eligible for an immigrant visa, are barred from adjusting their status in the US. It allows such persons to adjust their status in the US instead of acquiring their visa abroad.

Supervisor Hyland said that a fact sheet on the LIFE Act can be found on the INS website: www.ins.usdoj.gov.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the fact sheet be disseminated through the Office of Public Affairs for appropriate action and publicity. Without objection, it was so ordered.

43. REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2000-MV-060 (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board authorize the County Executive to serve as the Board’s authorized agent for purposes of completing the affidavit for Rezoning Application RZ 2000-MV-060 on behalf of the Board and to certify that the County Executive is authorized to act as the Board’s agent with regard to this matter. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

44. MOTION TO DECLINE OFFER OF DEDICATION OF OPEN SPACE (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matters in which Beazer Homes, the developer of Section Three of Worthington Woods, proposes a resubdivision of that section that would delete a small portion of the common open space shown on the current recorded plat. This area is 20,395 square feet in size. The resubdivision would redistribute this area into some existing lots to increase their size. The increase in the size of these lots will permit construction of more upscale units. No increase in the number of lots is proposed.
These common open space areas are not readily usable for recreational purposes, nor would their deletion adversely affect properties outside the boundaries of the subdivision. As reconfigured, the common open space will still exceed site plan open space requirements of the Zoning Ordinance. Since there is no proffered plan, there is no specific amount of open space proffered.
The reduction in size of the common space will constitute a "disposal of common open space" under Section 2-702(4) of the Zoning Ordinance. The County Attorney's office interprets this provision as requiring Beazer Homes to first offer the small open space area for dedication to the County.
Since this open space area is of no real value to the County, it would be appropriate for the Board to decline the offer of dedication and allow the open space to remain within the community.
Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board, pursuant to Section 2-702(4) of the Zoning Ordinance, decline the offer of dedication of the 20,395 square feet of open space described in the Resubdivision Plat. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

45. ANNANDALE HIGH SCHOOL RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Bulova said that student parking on residential streets around Annandale High School continues to be a serious problem and expansion of the Annandale RPPD is needed.

Supervisor Bulova said she has forwarded to the Department of Transportation petitions for the expansion of the Annandale RPPD on Erie Street from Manion Street to Heritage Drive, and for the entire length of Barr Place and Hoy Place.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to waive the number of parking spaces and the fees, and to proceed as expeditiously as possible. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

46. COUNTYWIDE NON-MOTORIZED (TRAILS) COMMITTEE (Tape 4)

(BACs) Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report with the composition of the County Non-motorized (Trails) Committee and for recommendations if there is not user representation. Without objection, it was so ordered.

47. INCREASED ENERGY COSTS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins stated that the Energy Information Administration of the US Department of Energy and the District of Columbia Energy Office made a presentation to the Washington Metropolitan Council of Governments Board of Directors meeting on January 10, 2001, on the expected increase in the cost of energy adversely affecting home heating bills this winter. Those bills could increase by 50 percent or more this winter as a result of colder weather, low fuel availability, and increased costs. The supply of electricity has been insufficient in parts of the US, especially California, causing the need for brownouts and rolling blackouts. While the local region has not been affected to that extent, the increased cost has caused a hardship for some homeowners.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct:

Accordingly, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Brodie and the Board of Directors of the Fairfax County Bar Association to appear before the Board in recognition of more than 25 years of service and dedication to the legal community and the citizens of the County. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Mendelsohn read his handwritten amendment to the motion: "A Grantee shall provide PEG as authorized by 47 U.S.C. Section 531, and shall provide leased access channels as required by 47 U.S.C. Section 532, and shall provide other access channel capacity, facilities, and financial support as specified in this franchise agreement." This was accepted.

Following further discussion, Mr. Long suggested the motion read as follows: "A Grantee shall provide PEG as authorized by 47 U.S.C. Section 531, and other access channel capacity, facilities, and financial support as specified in this franchise agreement."

Supervisor Hyland asked to amend the amendment as follows: "A grantee shall provide PEG or other access channel capacity, facilities, and financial support, and as specified in this franchise agreement and authorized by 47 U.S.C. Section 531, ….." This was accepted.

Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board defer action on this item until conclusion of the two 5 p.m. public hearings. Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Hudgins jointly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

(Later in the meeting action was taken on this item. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#81.)

Following the public hearing, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board give final approval to the sale of Land Bay A as set forth in the two contracts with Koll Metropolitan, LLC, dated December 18, 2000, as amended on January 22, 2001.

A Certificate of Publication was filed from the editor of the Fairfax Journal showing that notice of said public hearing was duly advertised in that newspaper in the issues of January 4 and January 11, 2001.

Following the public hearing, which included testimony by 15 speakers, there was input from James P. Zook, Director, Department of Planning and Zoning, and Jeffrey L. Blackford, Deputy Director, Office of Site Development Services, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services.

Supervisor Mendelsohn, jointly with Supervisor Kauffman, moved approval of the Planning Commission recommendations, including its established priorities, with the following modifications:

In addition, any consideration that would allow cluster development by-right should be strictly limited to residential zones of R-2 and above and be limited to cases where cluster plans would allow no more homes than can be built by-right, taking into account reductions in land area for RPAs.

Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Supervisor Bulova asked to amend the motion and include in bullet number 4 "….sidewalks, trails, or paths." This was accepted.

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