The staff was directed administratively to proceed as proposed.

23. NATIONAL PURCHASING MONTH IN FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley said that the Department of Purchasing and Supply Management has requested that Fairfax County designate March 2001 as National Purchasing Month in Fairfax County.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Kauffman and moved that the Board direct staff to invite the appropriate representatives to appear before the Board at the March 5, 2001, meeting to receive a proclamation declaring March as "National Purchasing Month in Fairfax County."

25. PEDALS FOR PROGRESS, A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION, RECYCLES BICYCLES (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley said that she wanted to expand on her Board Matter from January 22, 2001, regarding the potential for recycling computer equipment in Fairfax County. Since that meeting, she has been contacted by a constituent who has informed her that a local nonprofit organization, Pedals for Progress (P4P), collects used bicycles throughout the Washington, DC area and subsequently donates them to overseas charities for reconditioning and distribution.

Chairman Hanley said that further information about this organization and upcoming DC area bicycle collection locations, dates, and times may be found on its website at www.p4p.org. Aside from providing future recipients with an affordable form of transportation, the reuse of these bicycles that could otherwise have been sent to the landfill means that P4P helps reduce the stream of waste generated in the County. Chairman Hanley stated that she believes this organization might be even more effective with increased publicity.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff from the Office of Public Affairs to publicize the efforts of P4P to call attention to its mission and benefit recycling in the County. Without objection it was so ordered.

Acting-Chairman Kauffman returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

26. LANGLEY HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS' SWIM AND DIVE TEAM WINS VIRGINIA AAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP (Tape 6)

Despite receiving a formidable challenge from the Jefferson Colonials, the Saxon team swam to its fourth straight title in a contest dominated by Northern Virginia teams.

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that Langley jumped into an early lead with relay team members Nicole Sommers, Lindsey Ertter, Jessica Case, and Julie Howard winning the first event, the 200-yard relay. In the 400 freestyle relay, the team of Nicole Sommers, Rachel Shipp, Jessica Case, and Lindsey Errter shattered the previous record by more than three seconds (3:34.68). Nicole set a new State record in the 200 freestyle with a time of 1:52.94, and Lindsey ended her final state meet with a first in the 100 breaststroke and swimming anchor for the 400 freestyle relay team.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite the Langley High School Girls' Swim and Dive Team, and its coaching staff to appear before the Board at a date to be determined to be recognized for these significant accomplishments. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

27. MADEIRA SCHOOL'S GIRLS' SWIM AND DIVE TEAM WINS VIRGINIA STATE INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS (VSIS) CHAMPIONSHIP (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the Madeira School's Girls Swim and Dive Team has won the VSIS Championship in Chatham, Virginia. The outstanding performance of this team led to the first crown title for Madeira in 95 years. The young women won six out of 12 events, and, by scoring 350 points, dominated the other contenders, amassing 103 more points than runners-up in this field of 32 teams.

Individual standouts on the team were Kristen Pawlowski, Lauren Edmondson, Katie Mims, and Ginny Sasser, who set new VSIS and school records and successfully defended their 200 freestyle relay (1:41.17) and 400 relay (3:40.08), qualifying them for All-American consideration. These four swimmers also set four individual team records and were named to the All-State Team, along with diver Jenny Nichols. In addition, Madeira coach Rod Montrie was selected Coach of the Year.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite the Madeira Girls' Swim and Dive Team and its coaching staff to appear before the Board at a date to be determined to recognize these significant accomplishments. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

28. MARCH IS DEVELOPMENTAL - DISABILITIES INCLUSION MONTH (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova said that throughout the United States, March will be celebrated as Developmental Disabilities Inclusion Month. Here in Fairfax County, during the month of March, the Arc of Northern Virginia, in conjunction with People First, a self-advocacy group for people with developmental disabilities, and the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board, educates the public about the abilities and needs of people with developmental disabilities and their families.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board:

Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

29. THE WIDENING OF LITTLE RIVER TURNPIKE (ROUTE 236) (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova said that in the spring of 1995, seeking ways to improve traffic flow on Little River Turnpike (Route 236), she and Supervisor Connolly convened a task force of citizens and staff from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Fairfax County's Department of Transportation. Following the November 1995 elections, Supervisor Gross joined the effort. Chairman Hanley and City of Fairfax Mayor John Mason also participated in the task force. The group labored for about a year and a half and produced a Project Scope in November of 1996, which increased Route 236 from its existing four lanes to an enhanced four-lane corridor (new turn lanes/improvements to some intersections) and ultimately to six lanes.

Supervisor Bulova said that as the 2000 General Assembly convened, Senator Saslaw led a successful effort to secure funding earmarked for construction of Route 236. This was in addition to $5.7 million already in the State budget for design and land acquisition. VDOT hosted a community information meeting to present preliminary plans for this project on November 15, 2000. Since then, they have been working to refine their plans in response to comments they received at the community meeting.

Supervisor Bulova said that several months ago, she hosted a small meeting to address the specific issues of residents in a one-block section of the project. The meeting was very constructive and they are waiting to determine if suggestions made at the meeting could be accomplished. As a result of this meeting, the value of continuing the widening of Route 236 as a "phased" project was discussed. Additionally, by dragging the project out, neighbors of the road as well as commuters may consider the experience to be similar to having a band-aid pulled off slowly. The phased approach would probably also add to the overall cost of the project.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved jointly with Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Gross that the description for the Route 236 widening project be changed from a "phased" project to simply a project to widen Route 236 from its current four lanes to six. Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Gross jointly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

30. DISCRIMINATORY PRACTICES BASED ON SEXUAL ORIENTATION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the General Assembly considered Senate Bill 1147, which would have prohibited discriminatory practices, based on sexual orientation. Virginia residents and Fairfax County citizens should have confidence that they are being protected from all manner of discrimination.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to determine the feasibility of allowing the Human Rights Commission to receive, investigate, and resolve citizen complaints of discrimination as a result of sexual orientation. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board reaffirm its Policy of non-discrimination by denouncing discrimination in "employment decisions such as hiring, firing, promotion, compensation, or terms and conditions of employment" in Fairfax County based solely on sexual orientation. Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Gross jointly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Hudgins clarified that the motion referred to the Policy regarding Fairfax County Government.

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to circulate or otherwise advertise the Board's changes to the Personnel Policy. Without objection, it was so ordered.

The question was called on the motion and it CARRIED by a recorded vote of six, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn voting "NAY," Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

31. SOAPSTONE DRIVE IMPROVEMENTS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that she has met with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and citizens who live and travel along Soapstone Drive concerning the safety of pedestrians along this road from north of Glade Drive to South Lakes Drive. Within the last year, the condition of the road has resulted in several near fatal accidents.

Supervisor Hudgins said that Soapstone Drive is a two-lane road without sidewalks and provides entranceways to several clusters, a childcare center, and small retail services. VDOT is in agreement that the road raises safety concerns and should be addressed immediately.

In light of constituent concerns and VDOT's support for improvements on Soapstone Drive, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct the Department of Transportation to include Soapstone Drive on the VDOT's Six Year Secondary Road Improvement Program and on the County's list of secondary roads for Hazard Elimination and Safety funding. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

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

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the Board held a public hearing on the Secondary Road System. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#64.)

32. WAIVER OF THE FEE FOR USE OF THE SHOWMOBILE FOR THE VIENNA HALLOWEEN PARADE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the fifty-fifth Vienna Halloween Parade will be held on Wednesday, October 24, 2001. The Vienna Chamber of Commerce has requested a waiver of the fee for use of the Showmobile for the parade on Wednesday, October 24, 2001.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board waive the fee for use of the Showmobile by the Vienna Chamber of Commerce on October 24, 2001. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

33. WAIVER OF THE FEE FOR USE OF THE SHOWMOBILE FOR THE RESTON ASSOCIATION 2001 FESTIVAL (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Reston Association 2001 Festival will be held on Saturday and Sunday, July 14-15, 2001. The Reston Association has requested a waiver of the fee for use of the Showmobile for the Reston Festival 2001 on Saturday and Sunday, July 14-15, 2001.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board waive the fee for use of the Showmobile by the Reston Association on Saturday and Sunday, July 14-15, 2001. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

34. NO BOARD MATTERS TO PRESENT FOR SUPERVISOR GROSS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross announced that she had no Board Matters to present today.

35. SAFER ROADS FOR PEDESTRIANS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that it has come to his attention that Montgomery County, Maryland, has launched an initiative designed to make its roads safer for pedestrians. In response to 16 pedestrian deaths in Montgomery County during calendar year 2000, the Montgomery County's Blue Ribbon panel included representatives from citizen groups as well as county officials reviewing all aspects of pedestrian safety.

Supervisor Connolly noted that Fairfax County is often compared to Montgomery County. He added that it would not fare well in a comparison of pedestrian fatalities. In calendar year 2000, 18 pedestrians lost their lives on Fairfax County roads and streets. This is an increase from 13 pedestrian fatalities in 1999.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved the Board direct the County Executive, the Chief of Police, and the Director of Transportation to assess the review process for pedestrian fatalities to determine if the Board needs to establish a similar panel. Their findings and recommendations are to be reported back to the Board. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

There was a brief discussion of this issue.

36. INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON REZONING/FINAL DEVELOPMENT APPLICATIONS RZ/FDP 2000-PR-027 (CHRISTOPHER MANAGEMENT/HILLTOP ROAD) (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly announced his intent, later in the meeting at the appropriate time, to defer the public hearing on Rezoning/Final Development Plan Applications RZ/FDP 2000-PR-027 until March 19, 2001, at 3 p.m.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#57.)

38. SPECIAL STUDY FOR TELEGRAPH ROAD CORRIDOR (Tape 8)

Noting that later in the day the Board would hold a public hearing on the State's secondary road plan, Supervisor Kauffman stated that the widening of Telegraph Road may begin in 2009, with construction to be completed possibly in 2011. He noted that there are numerous vacant and underutilized properties along the Telegraph Road corridor from Beulah Street to the Capital Beltway that are subject to future development. He expressed his concern about future development in this corridor given the current Comprehensive Plan language. He asserted that continued State delays in implementing transportation improvements needed to ease congestion on that road, coupled with severe environmental constraints such as steep slopes and poor soils, have not been adequately addressed or linked to achievable density levels.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize a special study to examine land use and transportation for vacant and underutilized properties in the Telegraph Road corridor from Beulah Street to the Beltway. He said that the special study must also examine ways to preserve environmental features and improve transportation capacity and access in this part of Lee District. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion.

Following a brief discussion, the question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board held a public hearing on the Virginia Department of Transportation Secondary System Construction Program. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#64.)

39. PROVISION OF ENERGY AS A REGIONAL ISSUE (Tape 8)

Supervisor Kauffman reminded the Board of recent news stories regarding the power shortage in California and commentary on any likelihood of facing similar shortages in the region. He noted that Dominion Power has provided assurances that such an energy crisis will not happen in Virginia. However, he noted that Virginia may be requested to provide assistance if similar energy problems arise in neighboring states or the District of Columbia.

In recognition of the turmoil in California and its neighboring states and the fact that the region has taken steps toward energy deregulation, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board request the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) to take up this regional issue. He noted that COG was recently involved with regional water supply issues, which had a similar scope.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, without objection, the request was so ordered.

40. ISLAND CREEK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (Tape 8)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that the School Board is preparing to file a final development plan amendment (FDPA) application on approximately 18.5 acres which was dedicated for Island Creek Elementary School as part of the Island Creek rezoning. The property is owned by the Board of Supervisors. Consistent with staff policy, the rezoning application cannot be accepted for processing without the consent of the Board. Additionally, the School Board has requested assistance from the Board of Supervisors by authorizing concurrent and expedited processing of the application and associated site plans so that construction can begin as soon as possible.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board:

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 FDPA in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

41. DEADLINE FOR FILING FOR TAX EXEMPTION (Tape 8)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that there have been recent articles in the newspaper regarding the deadline of filing for tax exemption for the elderly and the disabled. He asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the effect if the County were to adjust its deadline from April 1 to comport with the April 15 tax deadline. Without objection, it was so ordered.

42. FAIRFAX CORNER (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey said that on February 28, 2000, the Board approved Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 87-S-039-3 and Finalized Development Plan Amendment Application FDPA 87-S-039-7 for Fairfax Corner. Summit Properties Partnership LP has modified the layout to address final engineering issues and to permit modifications to the unit type proposed. The site plan for Summit includes critical water line extensions to off-site portions off Fairfax Corner. He said that staff has reviewed the proposed changes and has no issues with this request.

Therefore Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to schedule the public hearing to be held before the Board for Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 87-S-039-4 and Conceptual Development Plan Amendment Application CDPA 87-S-039-4 for May 7, 2001. 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 in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

43. EXPEDITED PUBLIC HEARING DATE FOR PULTE HOME CORPORATION'S BLACKWELL PROPERTY (Tape 8)

(A) Supervisor Frey said that Pulte Home Corporation has submitted a rezoning application to permit a cluster subdivision of 26 lots on 15 acres located north of Compton Road and west of Union Mill Road in the Sully District. The Planning Commission public hearing was deferred to February 21 at the request of staff to accommodate some changes in staff and some amendments to the application.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to schedule the public hearing for Rezoning Application RZ 2000-MD-048 for Monday, March 19, 2001. The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

44. RECOGNITION OF JIM HART, OUTGOING CHAIRMAN OF THE WEST FAIRFAX COUNTY CITIZENS ASSOCIATION (WFCCA) (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey stated that for the past three years he has had the pleasure of working with Mr. Jim Hart, who most recently served as the Chairman of the WFCCA. The members of the WFCCA devote an enormous amount of time and energy to various land use projects and programs throughout the Sully District.

Supervisor Frey said that he has been notified, however, that at the end of this month Mr. Jim Hart will be stepping down from his role as Chairman. Therefore, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board invite Mr. Hart to appear before the Board for recognition for the many years of service he has given to WFCCA and the Sully District. Without objection, it was so ordered.

45. FENCE HEIGHT FOR THE NEW SULLY POLICE STATION (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey stated that the County is finalizing the site plan for the new Sully Police Station at the corner of Stonecroft Boulevard and Westfield Drive. In response to a request by the adjacent community association and to address security issues associated with the Police Department secure parking areas, the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services proposed to install an eight foot high fence along the rear, side and a portion of the front yards of the new station; however, the Zoning Ordinance only permits a seven-foot high fence along the rear and side yards and a four foot high fence along the front yard.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved approval of a variance to the Zoning Ordinance restriction on fence height as permitted in Section 10-104, Paragraph 3G of the Zoning Ordinance to permit the installation of eight-foot high fencing along the rear, side and a portion of the front yards of the police station, as reflected on the current site plan for the Sully District Police Station (#7085-SP-18-1.1). He noted that this request has been coordinated with the neighboring community and all adjacent property owners have been advised of the fencing plans and the intention to present this motion at today's Board meeting. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Discussion ensued.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the Board voted on this motion. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#50.)

46. CENTREVILLE ROAD FUND (Tape 8)

With reference to his written Board Matter on the subject, which was distributed to the Board, Supervisor Frey said that staff has been working with representatives of the new Burger King restaurant that is currently under construction across from his office on Old Centreville Road at Route 28. As part of the special exception application approval for the drive-through window at the restaurant, the Burger King representatives committed to provide substantial roadway improvements to Old Centreville Road, north of Route 28. However, the County Department of Transportation (DOT) staff believes that additional improvements are needed to optimize the connection from Upper Ridge Drive, and to better serve the residents of Centreville. Burger King has offered to oversee one contract for all of the roadway improvement, and DOT staff has reviewed the plans and recommended that the improvements be constructed under one contract. Combining the roadway improvements under one contract will minimize the inconvenience and disruption of roadway construction for motorist in the Centreville area and will eliminate many of the initial construction costs such as mobilization and contract management. DOT staff, together with staff from the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, has determined the extent to which the County should commit to support these roadway improvements, evaluated the construction bids for the entire project, and is recommending that a joint project be authorized.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board approve an expenditure of up to $250,000 from some of the funds already escrowed in the Centreville Road fund account for the improvement of Old Centreville Road north of Route 28. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

47. TAX MAP REFERENCE NUMBERS (Tape 8)

Chairman Hanley stated that she had received an e-mail from a citizen asking about the possibility of providing tax map reference numbers in all cases when relevant in the Weekly Agenda. Accordingly, she relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Kauffman and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to determine whether that request is feasible. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Acting-Chairman Kauffman returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.
