ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

20. SOIL AND WATER STEWARDSHIP WEEK (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley said that the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District (NVSWCD) has requested that Fairfax County join with 46 other Virginia Conservation Districts to recognize Soil and Water Stewardship Week. The theme of this year's celebration is habitat for all living creatures.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman McConnell and moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the NVSWCD and the environmental community to appear before the Board at the April 30, 2001, meeting to receive a proclamation declaring the week of April 29 through May 6, 2001, as "Soil and Water Stewardship Week" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly being out of the room, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

21. NATIONAL FOSTER CARE MONTH (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley said the month of May is nationally recognized as National Foster Care Month. In conjunction with the national observances, the Fairfax County Foster Care Association has requested that Fairfax County observe May as Foster Care Month.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the foster care community to appear before the Board at the May 7, 2001, meeting to receive a proclamation declaring May as "Foster Care Month" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Hudgins jointly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

22. WAIVER OF SPECIAL PERMIT APPLICATION FEE AND DEPOSIT FOR MID-ATLANTIC POLICE MOTORCYCLE RIDING COMMITTEE'S 2001 SAFETY COMPETITION (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley said that the Mid-Atlantic Police Motorcycle Riding Committee, Incorporated, contacted her office to request a waiver of the application fee and deposit for the special permit required to host its 2001 Safety Competition, a charity motorcycle riding event, on September 22, 2001.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to waive the required fees and deposit for the special permit. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

23. MENTAL RETARDATION (MR) WAIVER PROGRAM (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley said that the Board sent a letter to Governor Gilmore requesting prompt action by the Commonwealth to resolve a serious situation regarding the lack of funding for the MR Waiver Program. She called the Board's attention to the October 20, 2000, response she received from then Virginia Secretary of Health and Human Services, Claude Allen, stating that a task force was to be convened to study the issue.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct the Human Services Council to investigate the progress of the task force, and to provide the Board with information on what has been done to date by the State to address this issue. Supervisor Hudgins and Acting-Chairman McConnell jointly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

24. SOLID WASTE STREAM FLOW CONTROL (Tape 4)

Chairman Hanley said that in 1987 the County entered into a long-term commitment to fund construction of a waste-to-energy facility that would process the County's solid waste stream. She said the Board weighed the available options and chose this technology as the most compatible and sustainable for the County. The commitment to issue revenue bonds for the facility was based upon the flow control law interpretation at the time. Since that decision, the US Supreme Court altered the interpretation of solid waste flow control, and that has significantly affected the community.

Chairman Hanley said as the 107th Session of Congress begins to discuss the merits of flow control, the Board should remind Congressional members that the County strongly urges that legislation be passed that would allow local governments who entered into contracts for waste-to-energy facilities in reliance on flow control authority be allowed to continue to use that authority until the debt service for the respective facilities are retired. She said that in the County's specific case, this will occur in 2011.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to send a copy of the drafted letters to the Congressional and Senate delegations, to again remind them of the County's interest in this issue. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

 

25. CONFIRMATIONS AND APPOINTMENT TO THE 2001 CITIZENS ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON THE REAPPORTIONMENT OF FAIRFAX COUNTY (Tape 4)

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the Board made additional appointments to this Committee. See Clerk's Summary Items CL#38, CL#44, and CL#48.)

26. INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 95-H-049 AND SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 95-H-066 (Tape 4)

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the Board formally deferred this public hearing. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#59.)

27. NEED FOR TRAFFIC SIGNALS (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hudgins said constituents living near two intersections have contacted her office regarding the need for a traffic signal at both locations.

First, Supervisor Hudgins said in June 2000, her office contacted the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) regarding the need for a traffic signal at the intersection of Monroe Street and Fox Mill Road. VDOT responded by identifying that there are many unresolved issues surrounding proffers, completion of the construction of Frying Pan Road, easements, and right-of-way. However, it appears that VDOT is no closer to resolving those issues with the County's Department of Transportation (DOT). She said the residents continue to face increased traffic congestion at the intersection.

Second, Supervisor Hudgins said DOT has brought to her attention that funding for a traffic signal at Centreville Road and McNair Farms Drive has been allocated and a warrant study has been completed. However, five years has passed and still the intersection does not have the traffic signal. She said that it is her understanding that VDOT has yet to resolve right-of-way issues.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to request that VDOT work expeditiously with DOT to resolve the outstanding issues that prevent the installation of the traffic signals at both locations and for DOT to identify funding for the installation of a traffic signal at Monroe Street and Fox Mill Road. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley clarified that the County would not be responsible for funding the installation of the traffic signals.

The question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

28. CO-HOUSING MONTH (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Blueberry Hill community, which is located five miles west of Tyson's Corner off Leesburg Pike, is Fairfax County's first co-housing development, and consists of 19 homes clustered on five acres of land adjacent to the Potomac Vegetable Farm.

She said co-housing refers to a community that has been collaboratively planned, designed, and managed by all the people who live there. The goal of co-housing is for residents to gain more interaction with each other. The Blueberry Hill community features a large common house with a community kitchen and dining room to share meals and other activities. All of the houses have front porches and face onto a grassy area. This year the Blueberry Hill community celebrates the completion of its 19 home community.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Blueberry Hill community to appear before the Board to receive a proclamation celebrating the completion of the County's first co-housing development and declare May as "Co-housing Month" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

 

29. REQUEST FOR WAIVER OF THE FEES FOR USE OF SHOWMOBILE FOR THE ANNUAL CEDAR RIDGE FUN DAY (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hudgins said the Annual Cedar Ridge Fun Day will be held on Saturday, August 11, 2001. She said Reston Interfaith has requested a waiver of the fee for use of the Showmobile for the community fun day.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board grant the waiver of the fee for use of the Showmobile by Reston Interfaith, Incorporated, on August 11, 2001. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

30. ACTION ALERT FROM VIRGINIA ASSOCIATION OF COUNTIES (VACo) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hudgins referred to an action alert received from VACo noting that the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pension's Committee has a proposed amendment for the programs involved in the Workforce Investment Act funding. She said the funds included elementary and secondary education Pell grants, and early childhood and workforce development. Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to communicate to Senate Warner and Senator Allen the need to support the funding. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

36. NORTHERN VIRGINIA COMMUNITY COLLEGE (NVCC) CONTRIBUTION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Bulova said that she received a letter from the president of NVCC regarding an item in the budget which is Fairfax County's contribution of support to NVCC Capital Activity. She said that NVCC is requesting an increase to be phased in.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a Consideration Item including options on how to phase in a larger percentage per capita for Fairfax County as well as other localities. Supervisor Frey seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

To complete the significant upgrade necessary to accomplish this BNR, the Authority is seeking a $10 million, one-time federal appropriation. Because Fairfax County residents contribute 60 percent of the flow to the Authority and share the Authority's cost accordingly, the County is supporting the funding request to the congressional delegation.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to send a letter to the congressional delegation and subcommittee chairmen in the Senate and House of Representatives, as appropriate. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

40. SECOND ANNUAL PROVIDENCE DISTRICT ENVIRONMENTAL WORKSHOP (Tape 5)

41. USE OF NATIVE PLANTS BY LAND DEVELOPERS (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said one of the many discussions that took place at Saturday's Second Annual Providence District Environmental Workshop centered around the question of why some developers continue to use tree species such as Bradford Plum, White Silver Maples, and other non-native species that have such a poor record for survival in the area. In conversations with his representative on the Tree Commission and the urban foresters it was clear that the County can do more to require the use of native species in rezonings and other projects. Where Virginia Law limits what the County can require, there may be opportunities for legislative initiatives.

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

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

42. SCHEDULING AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF SITE PLANS FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 80-P-078-11, INOVA HEALTH CARE SERVICES (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that Inova Health Care Services has filed Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 80-P-078-11. The primary purpose of this application is to provide for the relocation of the existing helipad at the hospital. The relocation of the helipad is due to mandated Federal Aviation Administration requirements. Unfortunately, the removal of trees will also be necessary. The new location of the helipad will provide for more efficient emergency department operations and will result in safer circumstances from an air traffic perspective. The necessity for the relocated helipad was determined with the final design of the emergency department expansion that was approved by the Board on November 20, 2000. As the Board is aware, Inova faces significant capacity constraints, which manifest the need for the emergency department expansion. To meet its construction schedule for the expansion, Inova has requested scheduling of a Board public hearing date and concurrent processing of the site plans with this request.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to:

This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.

52. COUNTY'S 400-FOOT RULE SEWER POLICY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey said that for many years the 400-foot rule has been part of the County's sewer policy, which allows, in many areas, sewer line extensions across the surface drainage divide of an approved sewer service area as long as the extension of the sewer line meets three conditions:

Supervisor Frey said that there is a circumstance in Sully District that involves a new home with a failing septic system in an area adjacent to the approved sewer service area. The property owner in this instance would be able to carry out an extension of the sewer line under the existing 400-foot rule except for the fact that the topography in the area does not allow a gravity sewer line. Supervisor Frey said that he believes that the 400-foot rule should be amended to allow the use of a sewer pump on the property of an existing home with a failing septic system rather than being limited to a gravity line under the current rule.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff from the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to prepare a Board item for the meeting on April 30, 2001, to amend the 400-foot rule to allow sewer pumps when they are used to connect to the public sewer an existing home with a failing septic system. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being absent.
