23. ACCESSIBILITY AND AVAILABILITY OF HOUSING FOR THE DISABLED (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hudgins said that a quadriplegic constituent, attempting to buy a home after relocating to Fairfax County, discovered that there were no available handicapped accessible properties and he was left with the option of constructing a new home.

Supervisor Hudgins noted that the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code provides guidelines for builders and architects to follow so as to be in compliance with handicap accessibility requirements. The Office of Building Code Services enforces those accessibility provisions, however, it seems that in this constituent's situation, there are some inconsistencies in the enforcement process.

Supervisor Hudgins pointed out that this constituent needs doorways with 36-inch openings due to the size of his wheelchair, but the minimum standard required by the Building Code is 32-inches, which is all that Fairfax County can enforce. The constituent had to pay out-of- pocket expenses to widen the doorways since the 36-inch doors were allowed, but not required by law. The constituent's doorway to the master bedroom was constructed at 32-inches wide while the doorway to the master bath was constructed at 36-inches wide.

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Human Rights Commission, through its Housing subcommittee, has addressed many housing issues, including the housing needs of persons with disabilities.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct the:

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

24. PEDESTRIAN SAFETY (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Reston Town Center Association, being duly concerned about pedestrian safety, has drafted and adopted a policy resolution to improve pedestrian safety. The Reston Town Center District, a geographic section of Fairfax County, includes over 2,200 families and provides multiple services to the citizens of Reston.

The Reston Town Center Association operates LINK, a transportation management system for the Town Center District designed to reduce the dependence on vehicles. The vision for the Town Center was one of an urban environment, wherein, it would encourage walking, however, this is difficult because of a lack of concern on the part of motorists.

Supervisor Hudgins said that it is because of this lack of concern that the Reston Town Center Association felt compelled to introduce this resolution to ensure the safety of pedestrians who want to enjoy the Town Center atmosphere. The Association's resolution formally requests that the Virginia Department of Transportation: (1) make certain that all heavily trafficked areas have painted crosswalks; (2) install "walk lights" at the most dangerous intersections which allow pedestrians sufficient time to completely cross the street; and (3) construct sidewalks throughout this area where they do not presently exist.

Supervisor Hudgins said that at the December 11, 2000, Board meeting, she noted that Arlington County and the City of Alexandria were granted the authority, through General Assembly legislation, to install and maintain highway signs requiring motorists to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians in marked crosswalks. Violators not yielding the right-of-way can be fined between $100 and $500 dollars. The Board directed staff to review pedestrian safety and determine whether legislation was needed to allow Fairfax County to have similar legislation.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff, in addition to the earlier motion to review the need for legislation, to review pedestrian safety including the need for additional facilities such as painted crosswalks, "walk" lights and sidewalks to ensure the highest level of safety in Fairfax County. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to include the Virginia Department of Transportation in the study, and it was accepted.

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

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the issue of pedestrian signals was discussed. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#28.)

25. PINN COMMUNITY CENTER (Tape 4)

Supervisor Bulova said that last July she attended a "Rededication Ceremony" of the refurbished tennis courts at the David R. Pinn Community Center, located on Zion Drive. The ceremony included a brief history of the Sideburn Civic Association and the African American families who made the Zion Drive community their home for generations.

Supervisor Bulova referred to her written Board Matters and briefly outlined the history of the Sideburn Association. She moved that the Board direct staff to invite Terri Williams, current president of the Sideburn Civic Association, and members of the Zion community, to appear before the Board on February 26, 2001, to be congratulated for their rich history and contributions to the community. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

26. EXPANSION OF THE ROBINSON RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD): WAIVER OF MINIMUM NUMBER OF PARKING SPACES AND THE FILING FEES (Tape 4)

Supervisor Bulova said that student parking on residential streets around Robinson High School continues to be a serious problem and expansion of the Robinson RPPD is needed. She added that she has forwarded to the Department of Transportation (DOT) a petition for the expansion of the Robinson RPPD to Lister Court.

To proceed with the request, DOT needs Board approval to waive the minimum number of parking spaces and the filing fees. Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to waive the fees and to proceed as expeditiously as possible. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

27. REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2000-MA-065 (BREN MAR ASSOCIATES) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Gross said that 6315 Bren Mar Associates, LP has filed Rezoning Application RZ 2000-MA-065, for a change in zoning from the I-3 District to the I-4 District. The applicant has requested that the public hearings be expedited.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on April 30, 2001, or on the next Board meeting date following the Planning Commission recommendation. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

28. PEDESTRIAN SIGNALS (Tape 4)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the issue of pedestrian safety was discussed. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#24.)

Supervisor Gross said that the Board may be familiar with the new pedestrian signals located at some intersections in the cities of Fairfax and Alexandria, which display the number of seconds remaining to cross the street before the traffic light changes. Fairfax City has approximately 20 of the timed signals at downtown locations, and plans to purchase more due to their success.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board refer this issue to staff, to research timed pedestrian signals with neighboring jurisdictions, discuss their feasibility with the Virginia Department of Transportation, and report with recommendations. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

29. AFFORDABLE HOUSING DESIGN (Tape 4)

Supervisor Gross called the Board's attention to an article from Inform Magazine, which describes the grand prize winning entry in a competition to explore new design alternatives for affordable housing. The purpose of the initiative was to design an attractive three-bedroom house, with costs for materials not to exceed $35,000. The competition was co-sponsored by the Virginia Foundation for Architecture, in cooperation with Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity, which will construct homes based on the winning design in Chesterfield County.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board refer this article to staff to determine if such homes could be built in Fairfax County under the existing Zoning Ordinance. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by unanimous vote.

30. CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, CHAPTER 119 (GRASS OR LAWN AREA) (Tape 4)

[NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board authorized the advertisement of a public hearing to be held on proposed amendments to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 119 (Grass or Lawn Area). (See Page 6)

Supervisor Gross referred to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 119 (Grass or Lawn Area), and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to determine if there is a need to amend the ordinance to address repeat offenders. Without objection, it was so ordered.

31. COMMERCIAL TRUCK LOADING/UNLOADING (Tape 4)

Supervisor Gross said that she has been contacted by a resident whose home is directly adjacent to a commercial property that has now moved its loading dock closer to the property line.

Supervisor Gross referred to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 108 (Noise), and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to address the issue of the time that trucks using commercial loading docks are allowed to load or unload. 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 also address the issue of proximity. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

 

32. ENERGY CONSERVATION (Tape 4)

Supervisor Gross expressed her appreciation to Merni Fitzgerald, Director of the Office of Public Affairs, and her staff for publicizing information regarding energy conservation and the energy assistance program.

34. NO BOARD MATTERS FOR PROVIDENCE DISTRICT SUPERVISOR CONNOLLY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly announced that he had no Board Matters to present today.

35. REQUEST FOR CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR REZONING APPLICATIONS IN THE CENTREVILLE FARMS AREA (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey stated that Pulte Homes Corporation and Winchester Homes have filed rezoning applications in the Centreville Farms area. Rezoning Applications RZ 2000-SU-029, RZ 2000-SU-042, and RZ 2000-SU-043 propose the construction of a new spine road through Centreville Farms that will improve traffic circulation in this area. He said that the applicants have road construction plans prepared and they are ready to be filed with the County. Because this new road will be of benefit to the general public, he stated his belief that it would be appropriate to authorize concurrent processing so that the County’s Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) can commence the review of these roads at the earliest possible date.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board approve concurrent processing by DPWES of construction plans pertaining to the properties, which are the subject of Rezoning Applications RZ 2000-SU-029, RZ 2000-SU-042, and RZ 2000-SU-043. He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of the rezoning applications or future abandonment request in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

36. CENTEX HOMES – LEGATO ACRES (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey announced that Centex Homes is about to file a rezoning application on approximately 11.02 acres in the Legato Acres area, north of Route 29 and on the west side of Legato Road. The application proposes to rezone the subject property from R-1 to PDH-4. The proposed conceptual development plan/final development plan anticipates the abandonment of Deljo Drive (Route 6591). Consistent with staff policy, the rezoning application cannot be accepted for processing without the consent of the Board to allow the right-of-way to be included in the applications.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of the right-of-way of Deljo Drive, containing approximately 38.194 square feet, into the application area for the Dix-Cen-Gato Properties application by Centex Homes. He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards and does not prejudice the consideration of the rezoning application or future abandonment request in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

37. VIRGINIA FESTIVAL OF THE BOOK (Tape 5)

Supervisor Frey reminded the Board that over the last several years, he had asked the Board to recognize and help promote the Virginia Festival of the Book, which takes place in Charlottesville. From March 21-25, 2001, the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities (VFH) and Public Policy will hold its seventh annual Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville. The VFH is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to developing and supporting research, education, and public programs in the humanities.

Supervisor Frey noted that the Virginia Festival of the Book has become the preeminent book festival in the Mid-Atlantic Region. In 2000, more than 13,000 people attended the festival. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to work in conjunction with the VFH and Fairfax County Libraries in publicizing this event as soon as possible given the impending festival dates. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

38. WATER FOR LINCOLN-LEWIS-VANNOY AREA (Tape 5)

Supervisor McConnell stated that several months ago she had asked the Board to help research the creation of a tax district to help people in the Lincoln-Lewis-Vannoy area to bring water into their homes. She showed a sample of the discolored water that was drawn from a homeowner's well from that area this morning. She also said that many wells are running dry.

Supervisor McConnell stated that at a meeting held January 18, 2001, at the Mott Community Center, and attended by over 300 people, the community of Lewis Park overwhelming voted to approve the water supply district. She noted that the petition for a district is still being finalized in three other neighborhoods.

Supervisor McConnell stated that one problem identified at the meeting was that the monthly cost that these residents would have to pay could not be determined without a design of the system. However, the system cannot be designed until the funding is identified.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to create a budget Consideration Item for the expense of about 10 percent of the estimated cost of the construction, not to exceed $250,000, to be used by the Fairfax County Water Authority (FCWA) to design the water supply for areas desiring to be part of the aforementioned tax district.

Supervisor McConnell recognized the presence of many of the affected residents and welcomed them to the Board meeting.

Following discussion, with input from Robert J. Etris, Manager, Engineering Department, FCWA, and Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the motion to request the FCWA to proceed with the design and direct staff to develop a Consideration Item that allows the FCWA to be reimbursed. This was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Following further discussion, with input from Mr. Etris and Mr. Griffin, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board request the FCWA to provide an analysis of the funds it holds in reserve. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following discussion, with input from Mr. Griffin and David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Attorney's Office to review the public facilities issue to determine whether there are any restrictions on development the County can impose, given the cumulative impact of wells in a certain aquifer. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Following further discussion, Chairman Hanley restated the motion, as amended, as directing the FCWA to proceed with design of the water system with costs not to exceed $250,000. The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board took further action regarding water for this area. Clerk's Summary Items CL#40 and CL#67.)

39. REQUEST FOR JOINT MEETING WITH THE WATER AUTHORITY (Tape 5)

(BACs) Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to schedule a joint meeting with the Water Authority to discuss issues of concern. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that the Water Authority approved the contract for the new water intake pipe in the Potomac River.

40. AUTHORIZATION TO ADVERTISE A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE CREATION OF A SMALL TAX DISTRICT FOR LINCOLN-LEWIS-VANNOY (Tape 5)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board discussed water issues for this area. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#38.)

With reference to a Board Matter she presented earlier, Supervisor McConnell stated that at a community meeting to ascertain interest for the creation of a small tax district for the Lincoln-Lewis-Vannoy neighborhoods, over 80 percent of the residents of Lewis Park signed a petition supporting the creation of a small tax district to supply water. She moved that the Board authorize the advertisement of a public hearing for the creation of a small tax district for the Lincoln-Lewis-Vannoy water tax district to be held on March 19, 2001, at such time as is convenient for the Board. Supervisor Frey seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, and Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, regarding the fact that the boundaries for the proposed district have not been determined, Chairman Hanley stated that the Board would defer action on this issue until later in the meeting.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board took action on this issue. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#67.)

 

41. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT'S FOURTEENTH ANNUAL TOWN MEETING (Tape 5)
