The staff was directed administratively to proceed as proposed.

29. PROCLAMATION TO OBSERVE APRIL AS "FAIR HOUSING MONTH" IN FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley said that April is traditionally celebrated throughout the nation as "Fair Housing Month." In conjunction with these observances, the Human Rights Commission has requested a Proclamation to observe April as "Fair Housing Month" in Fairfax County.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Human Rights Commission to appear before the Board at the April 2, 2001 meeting to receive a proclamation declaring April as "Fair Housing Month" in Fairfax County. Vice-Chairman Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

30. FAIRFAX COUNTY NAMED A TREE CITY USA BY THE NATIONAL ARBOR DAY FOUNDATION (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley said that Fairfax County has been named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation for the fourteenth year in a row. To become a Tree City USA, a community must meet four standards: a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance.

Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to issue a press release and a notice on the County’s website. Without objection, it was so ordered.

31. FAIRFAX COUNTY POLICE DEPARTMENT EARNS TOP HONORS AT THE TOP COP FITNESS CHALLENGE (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley said that for the second year in a row, the Fairfax County Police Department has earned top honors at the Top Cop Fitness Challenge, a Statewide competition to ascertain who is the most physically fit, sponsored by the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services. Detective Mark Harrington was the men’s overall winner. Lieutenant Maggie DeBoard took second place in the women’s division age 30-39 and Private First Class Tracy Campagna took third place honors in the women’s division age 20-29.

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to invite Detective Harrington, Lieutenant DeBoard and Private First Class Campagna to appear before the Board to receive Certificates of Recognition. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

32. UNDERGROUND UTILITY DAMAGE PREVENTION (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley said that according to a General Assembly status report, Senate Bill 1328 prohibits the State Corporation Commission from promulgating some regulations under the Underground Utility Damage Prevention Act. She asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review these regulations and their effect on Fairfax County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

33. ARLINGTON COUNTY REQUESTS TO BE A PART OF FAIRFAX COUNTY’S AFFORDABLE DWELLING UNIT (ADU) ORDINANCE LEGISLATION (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley brought to the Board’s attention that Arlington County has requested to be included with Fairfax County’s ADU Ordinance Legislation.

34. BILL PASSED IN GENERAL ASSEMBLY THAT ALLOWS COUNTIES TO ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SECONDARY HIGHWAY SYSTEM (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley said that a bill was passed in the 2001 Session of the General Assembly that allows counties to assume responsibility of the Secondary Highway System.

In 1990, the County studied the feasibility of taking over the Secondary Highway System and concluded that for a number of reasons, including high start up cost associated with equipment, facilities, personnel, and funding, it was not desirable to pursue that option at that time. Nonetheless, the County has continued to supplement the State transportation program by expending over $440 million of general obligation bond monies.

Chairman Hanley said that this new legislation appears to allow more flexibility in what can be taken over as opposed to the previous legislation that required the County to take over everything or nothing at all. This legislation also allows the State to provide equipment, facilities, personnel and funding to the County to take over the secondary system.

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to review this legislation and provide the Board with recommendations on what portion(s), if any, of the State Secondary Highway System the County should consider taking over and the equipment, facilities, personnel, and funding required from the State for the County to assume Secondary Road System responsibility. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

In addition, Chairman Hanley amended the motion to include a review of the standard of maintenance and existing conditions before the take over.

Supervisor Kauffman asked to amend the motion to direct staff, in its review, to focus on signage and signals, and this was accepted.

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

35. COMPREHENSIVE SERVICES ACT (CSA) HAS SHORTFALL IN FISCAL YEARS (FY) 2001 AND 2002 (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley said that the Virginia Municipal League Bulletin states that the CSA has a $17 million shortfall in FY 2001 and a $43 million shortfall in FY 2002.

Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review how the shortfall affects the County’s comprehensive services revenues. Without objection, it was so ordered.

36. APRIL 22-28 DESIGNATED AS "NATIONAL COUNTY GOVERNMENT WEEK" WITH A THEME OF "COUNTIES MAKE E-GOVERNMENT WORK" (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley said the National Association of Counties has designated April 22-28 as its annual "National County Government Week." This year the theme will be "Counties Make E-Government Work."

Since Fairfax County is E-Country, and due to the frequent awards that the County wins on behalf of its E-Government initiatives, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board declare the week of April 22-28 as "National County Government Week," in Fairfax County with a theme of "Counties Make E-Government Work." Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

37. ACCEPTANCE OF QUARTERLY STATUS REPORT FROM THE AUDIT COMMITTEE (Tape 6)

(BACs) Chairman Hanley moved the acceptance of the Quarterly Status Report from the Audit Committee. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

 

38. REDUCTION IN WORKFORCE AS A RESULT OF IMPROVED TECHNOLOGY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn, jointly with Supervisor Connolly, brought to the Board’s attention the Global Internet Summit at George Mason University. Several speakers there spoke about how the effective utilization of information technology could result in a reduction in workforce and provide better services in both the private and public sectors. The County Executive’s Proposed Fiscal Year 2002 Budget includes 87 new positions, which could possibly be eliminated by a more effective use of technology.

Supervisor Mendelsohn, jointly with Supervisor Connolly, asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

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

39. PUBLIC SERVICE OR DISSERVICE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that he was recently amazed to find that fellow citizens, if stopped for any traffic violation in Fairfax County, will find their names and addresses posted on the Fairfax County website. Citizens can be charged with driving with an expired County sticker and then find their names and addresses listed along with those of persons charged with homicide, rape, and incest. The Dr. Gridlock column of the Washington Post was further enlightening when it was reported that neighboring jurisdictions do not publish such lists.

Supervisor Connolly questioned whether this website exists to provide a service to attorneys; and whether they should be paying for it. Apparently the site, with its wealth of information on the citizens of Fairfax is unable to note when charges are dropped or a defendant found not guilty.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

40. WAIVER OF PERMIT FEES (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that as part of a major health and safety initiative to reduce firefighter exposure to diesel fumes, the Fire and Rescue Department is funding the installation of diesel exhaust systems in all fire stations, including those stations owned and operated by Volunteer Companies. Supervisor Connolly noted that the total of estimated fees is between $13,000 and $16,000.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board approve a waiver of the permit fees associated with the installation of diesel exhaust recovery systems. This waiver is for fees not to exceed $20,000 for all stations owned by Volunteer Companies. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, the question was called on the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

41. HANNAH HILLS SUBDIVISION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that Outlot B of the Hannah Hills Subdivision is located between Hannah Farm Road to the south and two lots of the Mary Edelin Subdivision to the north. This outlot was created when the alignment of Hannah Farm Road was shifted to the south and is currently owned by the Hannah Hills Homeowners' Association (HOA). This outlot is not needed to meet any density or open space requirements of the Hannah Hills subdivision. The Hannah Hills HOA wishes to sell the property. A proposed subdivision has been submitted which would incorporate Outlot B and the two lots located to the north of Outlot B. This subdivision would result in a third lot being created from the rear portion of the two existing lots and Outlot B that would have frontage on Hannah Farm Road.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board release the land described as Outlot B of the Hannah Hills Subdivision, Tax Map 37-4((21))B, from the requirement set forth in Section 2-702 of the Zoning Ordinance so that the HOA may, at its own discretion, offer this land for sale or otherwise dispose of the land. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, Supervisor Connolly amended the motion to refer this issue to the County Attorney for his recommendation. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

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

42. COMMUNITY ACTION MONTH (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that the National Association of Community Action Agencies has designated May 2001 as National Community Action Month.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board:

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

43. SCHOOL BALL FIELDS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that in the Fiscal Year 2000 Budget the Board approved an initiative that increased the funding for the maintenance of school ball field improvements.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board reaffirm its intent that the $500,000 that has been transferred to the Park Authority for maintenance of school ball fields shall be used in part as a matching fund in partnership with athletic organizations. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the issue be scheduled for discussion at the next budget session. Without objection, it was so ordered.

44. INITIATIVE TO PROVIDE EQUITABLE SERVICES IN COUNTY TEEN CENTERS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Fiscal Year 2002 Advertised Budget provides information about teen centers by supervisor districts. The information presents a picture of a significant lack of equity among services available to teens in various districts. Comparison of both funding levels, activities, and facilities shows substantially different levels of service. He noted that Providence District lags far behind the others in these allocations.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to develop a plan that would provide for an equitable distribution of resources and would provide for a uniform set of services that will be available for all Fairfax County teenagers at all of the teen centers. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion with the following amendment that the word "uniform" be changed to "equitable." This was accepted.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to schedule this issue for discussion at the next budget session. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report with the following information:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report on demographics. Without objection, it was so ordered.

45. NEWS TO USE AN INFORMATION RESOURCE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly referred to a document entitled News to Use an Information Resource prepared by the Office of Public Affairs for Fairfax County citizens and community associations. He noted that it contained an item regarding the new hours of operation for the Office of Building Code Services, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to monitor the success of the new hours and report should there be diminution of service provided to citizens. Without objection, it was so ordered.

46. MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL WINS SECOND STATE TITLE AT THE VIRGINIA HIGH SCHOOL LEAGUE'S ONE-ACT PLAY FESTIVAL (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that the 31 thespians in Marshall High School's one-act play Samoubistuo are celebrating their second-year-in-a-row win at the Virginia High School League's Theater Arts Festival.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite the cast and director of Marshall High School's winning one-act production to appear before the Board to be properly recognized for this honor. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

47. SYMPHONY SPECTACULAR (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova said that on June 3, 2001, the American Youth Philharmonic (AYP) Orchestras will be holding a SYMPHONY SPECTACULAR, an annual event to celebrate the end of its 2000-2001 season. This season marks the anniversary of AYP Conductor Carl Bianchi's tenth anniversary with AYP Orchestras. She noted that much of Mr. Bianchi's professional career was spent as Director of Bands at James Madison High School.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to present Mr. Bianchi with a resolution honoring him for his outstanding contributions to the youth and naming June 3, 2001, as "Carl J. Bianchi Day" in Fairfax County. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the resolution be presented to Mr. Bianchi at the event or at a Board meeting prior to June 3, 2001. Without objection, it was so ordered.

48. ZION DRIVE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova said that Zion Drive is a narrow, curvy road that runs from Guinea Road to Route 123. Following the Civil War, African-American families settled on large homesteads in the Zion Drive/Sideburn Road/Fairfax Station area. During the past 20 years, some of these large parcels have been sold and developed. Some of the present day communities, such as Goins Manor, bear the names of those early families.

Supervisor Bulova noted that unlike roads built through larger subdivisions like Kings Park West, or planned communities like Burke Centre, Zion Drive has experienced development in a somewhat piecemeal fashion. As parcels have been developed, right-of-way has been dedicated but a project has never been advanced to widen and improve Zion Drive. It is on the Comprehensive Plan to remain two lanes and is not currently a candidate for funding for its improvement.

In addition to narrow lanes, dips, and swells, motorists attending the Greater Little Zion Baptist Church or visiting the David R. Pinn Recreation Center must negotiate a rather severe hairpin curve.

Supervisor Bulova moved that Board direct staff to:

Supervisor Bulova added that she would consider funding some of these improvements through the Braddock District's future Spot Improvement allocation. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

There was a brief discussion of this item.

49. EARTH DAY/ARBOR DAY CELEBRATION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova referred to her written Board Matter regarding the Earth Day/Arbor Day Celebration and announced that she would raise this issue later in the meeting.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting this issue was discussed. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#82.)

50. YOUTH CRIME WATCH AMERICA (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross said that America was horrified once again when a teenaged student shot several people, and killed two, near San Diego earlier this month. In most cases, other students reported, after the fact, that they knew or suspected that something was going to happen. But they didn't tell anyone until after the incident!

Supervisor Gross said that there is a program, Youth Crime Watch America, that gives youngsters the tools and guidance necessary to actively reduce crime and drug use in their schools and communities. This is different from the usual efforts, where well-intentioned adults attempt to solve youth problems. Youth Crime Watch programs are credited with significantly reducing crime and drug use since the 1980's.

Youth Crime Watch America relies on the principle of good citizenship, where youth take an active role in addressing the problems around them because they are part of the community, and everyone must be part of the solution. Sometimes compared to Neighborhood Watch, Youth Crime Watch America can train youth and youth advisors to take ownership of their own program for their school, neighborhood, recreational center, or park.

Because Youth Crime Watch America has been proven to work in other localities, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the program be referred to the School System, the Partnership for Youth, and the school coalitions, for review and a response as to how the program might be implemented in Fairfax County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

51. COX "CABLE EDITION" (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross said that as the Board will recall, at a recent meeting it unanimously approved a motion directing staff to investigate Cox's decision to discontinue its "Cable Edition" publication without a corresponding decrease in rates or a suitable no-cost replacement. Further, staff was directed to present Cox with the following three options:

Supervisor Gross said that she has been informed by County staff that Cox has reviewed the three options presented and responded that it is "moving forward with our business decision to discontinue the production and mailing of the complimentary 'Cable Edition' monthly guide."

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the County Attorney and the Department of Telecommunications and Consumer Services to review the County's legal and regulatory authority to take action on Cox's reduction in its level of service while continuing to charge the same subscriber rates, and to report its findings and recommendations. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

52. SHELTER HOUSE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross said that for the past 20 years, Shelter House has been helping homeless Fairfax County families get back on their feet. With this accomplishment in mind, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to invite Executive Director Jewell Mikula and members of the Shelter House Board be invited to appear before the Board at a mutually convenient date, to be recognized for their service to the people of Fairfax County. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

53. INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON REZONING APPLICATION RZ 1999-MA-051 AND SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 99-M-033 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross announced her intent, later in the meeting, at the appropriate time, to defer the public hearing on Rezoning Application RZ 1999-MA-051 and Special Exception Application SE 99-M-033 until April 2, 2001.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#85.)

54. MASON DISTRICT SPRING TOWN MEETING (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross announced that on Monday, March 26, 2001, the Mason District Spring Town meeting will convene at 7:30 p.m. at the Beech Tree Elementary School cafeteria. The discussion will be on the budget.

The panel guests will include Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, and Edward L. Long, Jr., Chief Financial Officer.

55. BIKE TO WORK WEEK (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to invite members of the bicycling community to appear before the Board to be recognized for "Bike to Work Week" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova being out of the room.

 

56. VERIZON WIRELESS - PUBLIC FACILITIES APPLICATION 2232-H00-10 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that on the agenda for the Board meeting on April 2001, is an appeal filed by Verizon Wireless of a Section 15.2-2232 determination regarding Public Facilities Application 2232-H00-10 for a telecommunications facility. This appeal was previously scheduled for the Board meeting on January 22, 2001. On January 8, 2001, however, the Board approved Verizon's request that the time for the Board to consider this appeal be extended until April 2, 2001. She said that Verizon, with the permission of Nextel and AT&T Wireless who are co-located at the facility, requests an additional extension of 49 days of the time within which the Board may consider this appeal. As a result, the appeal period for this matter would be extended from April 2, 2001, to May 21, 2001, if the Board grants this request by Verizon.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board:

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

57. ECONOMIC GROWTH AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING CONFERENCE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins announced that the Washington Housing Partnership along with the Metropolitan Washington Area Council of Governments are sponsoring on Friday, March 23, 2001, at 8 a.m. at the National Press Club, a housing conference entitled Economic Growth and Affordable Housing. She added that the public is invited to attend.

58. DIGITAL DIVIDE CONFERENCE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins announced that on Friday, March 30, 2001, at 8 a.m. at the Metropolitan Washington Area Council of Governments (COG) building in Washington, DC, will be a digital divide conference sponsored by the COG Digital Divide Task Force.

 

59. HUNTER MILL DISTRICT COMMUNITY MEETINGS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins invited all Hunter Mill District residents and Board Members to attend a Hunter Mill District Community meeting at South Lakes High School on March 31, 2001, at 8 a.m.

60. AFFORDABLE COMPUTER CLASSES ON RICHMOND HIGHWAY (Tape 8)

Supervisor Kauffman reported that registration for a second semester of technology classes offered by the Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC) serving residents of the Richmond Highway Corridor is underway. Last summer, prompted by complaints from high technology employers in the area about their inability to find skilled employees, he met with NVCC representatives to interest them in offering high technology computer classes to highway corridor residents at a convenient location. He said that members of his staff as well as representatives of Supervisors Hyland's office, NVCC, the Southeast Fairfax Development Corporation, the Economic Development Authority, the School Division, and the Region One Human Services Office successfully set up the first computer training classes last fall and there was a long waiting list of students.

Supervisor Kauffman said that NVCC will hold in-person registration for its Microsoft Office User Specialist Certification and Introduction to Microsoft Office Certification at the Bryant Adult Alternative High School at 2709 Poplins Lane on Tuesday, March 27 and Thursday, March 29. Registration will be held in Room 222 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the staff of the Office of Public Affairs to circulate the publicity flyer to local media representatives. Without objection, it was so ordered.

61. OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT FOR SILVERBROOK FARMS (Tape 8)

Supervisor McConnell stated that in 1997 an Area Plans Review item was adopted for approximately 14 acres known as Silverbrook Farms as shown on a map she circulated to the Board. The adopted plan allows an option for residential use at a density of 2-3 dwelling units per acre, if 11 contiguous parcels are consolidated. The original assemblage of 11 contiguous parcels has not been successful. Two pending applications, Rezoning Applications RZ 2001-SP-0007 and RZ 2001-SP-009, account for approximately 12 acres of this area, but the parcels are not contiguous. She stated her belief that the consolidation condition in the plan may have been too stringent.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board authorize an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment for the Silverbrook Farms area as shown on the afore-mentioned map with consideration to the consolidation condition to allow fewer than 11 contiguous parcels. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

62. REQUEST FOR GREATER PROTECTION FOR SENIOR CITIZENS FROM UNSCRUPULOUS CONTRACTORS (Tape 8)

With reference to his written Board Matter on the subject, Supervisor Hyland stated that senior citizens across the County are being bilked and taken advantage of by contractors from the Culpeper area. He cited a case in the Mount Vernon area where such contractors convinced an elderly homeowner that she needed considerable work done on her property. Over a period of time they allegedly performed work for a total payout of $180,000, thereby eliminating this woman's entire savings.

Supervisor Hyland stated that these individuals have been arrested for similar types of activities around the County and many have outstanding warrants. He noted the difficulty of serving these individuals with warrants in the Culpeper area. Because this problem is pervasive, he moved that the Board:

Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Kauffman jointly seconded the motion.

Supervisor Bulova noted that she recently had a town meeting on senior citizen safety and crime and that a member of the organization TRIAD made a presentation at the meeting. Accordingly, she asked to amend the motion to include members of TRIAD in the aforementioned review, and this was accepted.

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

63. CONSIDERATION ITEM FOR FIELD LIGHTS FOR SANDBURG MIDDLE SCHOOL (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland referenced his written Board Matters and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to prepare a Consideration Item for the Fiscal Year 2002 Budget to include $175,000 for the purpose of restoring the lighting system at Carl Sandburg Middle School playing field. Without objection, it was so ordered.

64. BOARD RECOGNITION OF MISS KATIE McLEAN (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland referenced his written Board Matter on the subject and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Miss Katie McLean and her classmates to appear before the Board to be recognized for their exceptional efforts. Miss McLean crafted legislation to increase the fines for littering in State parks and the resulting House Bill 2302 passed the General Assembly this year and is awaiting the governor's signature. Without objection, it was so ordered.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the Board took further action regarding this subject. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#66.)

65. POTOMAC RIVER DREDGING (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland referenced his written Board Matter on the subject and moved that the Board direct staff to draft a letter to the Army Corps of Engineers for the Chairman's signature stating that the Board does not support the Dogue Creek off load site nor the proposed Possum Point fly ash landfill as the destination site for dredging materials from the Mount Vernon Federal Navigation Channel of the Potomac River. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

66. BOARD RECOGNITION OF MISS KATIE McLEAN (Tape 8)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board took action on this item. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#64.)

With reference to the Board Matter honoring Miss Katie McLean, Supervisor Connolly clarified that Delegate Kristen Amundsen would also be invited to attend.

67. MARCH 5, 2001, ACTIONS ON MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT PUBLIC HEARINGS (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland stated that he had to leave the Board meeting on March 5, 2001, early to attend a National Association of Counties Board meeting and make a presentation. There were two Mount Vernon District land use public hearings on the agenda that day. One he had wanted to defer and the other he had wanted to proceed; however, the opposite action was taken inadvertently. He stated that he would confer with the County Attorney and review additional information then make a decision as to whether the Board should possibly reconsider its action.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board took action on these items. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#75.)

68. WAIVER OF SHOWMOBILE FEES FOR THE CENTREVILLE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION (CCF) TITLE (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey said that CCF is sponsoring the annual Centreville Day celebration on Saturday, September 22, 2001, at Braddock Park between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. He said CCF has submitted an application to reserve the Showmobile, preferably the new one, for that day; however, the fees required would cut into other planned entertainment activities for the day.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board waive all fees associated with the use of the County Showmobile by the CCF for Centreville Day on September 22. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

69. DESIGNATION OF MAY AS "OLDER AMERICAN'S MONTH" (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey said that he had been asked on behalf of the Commission on Aging to recognize that the contributions of the senior adult population in the County is a very special one. He moved that the Board direct the staff to prepare a proclamation for presentation at the April 30, 2001, Board meeting designating the month of May as "Older American's Month" in Fairfax County. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

70. "BUILDING SAFETY WEEK" IN FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey said the International Building Safety Week has been observed for many years in this nation in order to increase public awareness of the importance of building codes and construction safety. Across the country, code officials actively endorse Building Safety Week as an effective means to improve communication between their building departments and community residents, builders and developers; and to increase public education on a wide range of issues including safety devices such as back-flow preventers used in plumbing, carbon monoxide detectors, and smoke detectors, which save lives and protect property.

Supervisor Frey said that this year International Building Safety Week will be observed the week of April 8-14, 2001. To mark the event, the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) has scheduled public outreach efforts in several local elementary schools and hardware supply stores. In addition, DPWES will honor a County resident with the 2001 Building Safety Community Partnership Award. The award was set up and first presented in 1998 to recognize individuals in the County who have made significant contributions to the promotion of the goal of building safety in Fairfax County. This year the award will be presented to Mr. David Conover.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a proclamation for presentation at the April 2, 2001, Board meeting designating the week of April 8-14 as "International Building Safety Week" in Fairfax County. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

Following a brief discussion, with input from Merni Fitzgerald, Director, Office of Public Affairs, Chairman Hanley announced that the April 2, 2001, meeting would commence at 9 a.m.

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

71. BOARD'S OWN MOTION SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION TO PERMIT CONSTRUCTION OF REGIONAL POND D40 (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey said that as part of the Regional Stormwater Management Program adopted by the Board in 1991, the plan shows construction of an embankment only stormwater facility, identified as pond D40, in the Dartmoor Woods area. The proposed pond location is on land owned by the Board and is subject to Special Exception Application SE 84-C-015. The Stormwater Planning Division (SPD) of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services is proposing to construct this facility because of the impact of the EQC. He stated that he had been told that the impact to the EQC with the construction of the regional pond would be minimal compared to the water quality benefits gained. Because the property is owned by the Board, the Board must make a motion before SPD may file the special exception application.

Because there is a public interest to be served by amending the approved special exception for Dartmoor Woods, and the public necessity, convenience, and general welfare and good zoning practice require such action, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board initiate a Board's Own Motion special exception amendment application to Special Exception Application SE 84-C-015 to permit the construction of Regional Pond D40. Supervisor Hudgins and Supervisor McConnell jointly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

72. MITCHELL-WEEKS HOUSE (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey said that the County has been working for several years to preserve the Mitchell-Weeks House, an eighteenth century structure of architectural and historical significance. The house is located on privately-owned property along Route 50. He stated that at one time there was consideration of a proffered condition amendment and a Comprehensive Plan amendment that would allow the relocation of the house and require the contribution of a significant sum of resources for historical preservation.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to accept and process a new Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment for Tax Map 34-4((1))58, 59, 60D, to consider deleting the requirement that the Mitchell-Weeks house be preserved in its present location and to consider an option for office use on the property. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

Supervisor Frey stated that the applicant understands that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way. The question was called on the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

73. GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITY MEN'S BASKETBALL SUCCESS (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey stated with pride that the County's hometown university, George Mason University, had a highly successful Colonial Athletic Association men's basketball season and tournament. It participated in the NCAA tournament, but was eliminated by the University of Maryland.

In recognition of its successful season, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the George Mason Patriots men's basketball team to appear before the Board to be congratulated for its season. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

74. CLOSED SESSION (Tape 8)

At 2:10 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:
