42. RED LETTER DAY FOR DEPARTMENT OF FIRE AND RESCUE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly said that April 7, 2001, was a red letter day for Fairfax County's Fire and Rescue Department as its five man relay team faced the "best of the best" in a qualifying event of the National Firefighter Combat Challenge held at Potomac Mills. He announced that this event will be aired on a future ESPN broadcast scheduled for June of this year. He said that viewers will see the relay team winning the Challenge Course and tying the World Record of one minute 15 seconds while wearing full gear and 45 pounds of breathing apparatus.

Supervisor Connolly said that the men's relay team members are Samuel Gray from the McLean Station, Joseph Knerr and James McKendree from Woodlawn Station, Rodney Vaughan from Merrifield Station, and Jerome Williams from the Fire Training Academy. Last year the Fairfax team finished fourth in the US and eleventh in the World. This year the team is aiming at regaining the World Record and winning both Nationals and Worlds.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the members of the Men's Firefighter Combat Challenge Team to appear before the Board to be recognized for their achievement and to be encouraged in their future efforts. Without objection, it was so ordered.

43. BIRDS AND MOSQUITOES (Tape 5)

(BACs) Supervisor Connolly pointed out that as the warmer weather months approach, the threat of West Nile Virus returns. He added that the Fairfax County Health Department is working closely with the health departments of neighboring jurisdictions and the Commonwealth. Mosquito breeding sites are being monitored and community education programs are being implemented.

Supervisor Connolly said that there are a number of birds that devour insects. Mosquitoes to them are a delicacy to be sought out wherever they might be hiding. He said that a pilot program to encourage nesting of these birds near areas where mosquitoes are known to breed might bring lasting results for many years to come. From purple martin houses at stormwater dry ponds to barn swallow homes on County buildings, there is much that can be done as well as encouraging others to do.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to establish a task force to assess the possibilities of such an approach. This task force should include Departments of Health, the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, as well as the County Wildlife Biologist and appropriate "birding groups." The County Executive might also consider including such organizations as the National Wildlife Federation. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

46. SITE CLEAN-UP AT THE ENGINEER PROVING GROUNDS IN SPRINGFIELD (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to send a letter to the congressional delegation urging its members to support funding for site clean-up at the Engineer Proving Grounds in Springfield. Fort Belvoir, which oversees the installation, is currently conducting a due diligence study required prior to the transfer and disposal of the site. Key sites identified in a 1992/3 study must be cleared before the State can proceed with construction of the two mile, "missing leg" of the Fairfax County Parkway. The request for funding is moving its way from the Secretary of the Army's Office to Congress. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

Supervisor Kauffman noted that if the funding for this clean-up is not secured, $50 million in State funding to complete the Parkway is at serious risk.

49. CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR LAND USE APPLICATIONS FOR HUNTINGTON STATION LLC (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matters, which were distributed to the Board, the first of which concerned land use applications for Huntington Station LLC for 49 single family attached dwelling units on property identified as Tax Map 83-1 ((1)) 53B. These applications relate to an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan recommendation for the property that was adopted by the Board last fall. In the interest of keeping its construction schedule for the project, the applicant has requested concurrent processing of its site plan, subdivision plan, building plans, construction drawings, and other related documents to be reviewed concurrently with the processing of these applications.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to process the applicant’s site plan, building plans, construction drawings, and other related documents concurrently with the processing of Rezoning Application RZ 2001-MV-006, Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 92-0V-032-2, and Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 88-V-025. He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of the land use application in any way. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

50. SCHEDULING OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2001-MV-011 AND SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 88-V-023 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter that related to a rezoning request for a 397-unit multi-family apartment project proposed to be built within the Huntington Transit Station Area, Tax Map 83-1 ((1)) 53A. The applicant, LCOR/JV Acquisition LLC, has requested a public hearing date to be held before the Board on August 6, 2001, for its rezoning request. LCOR has been involved in the development of this site since early last year and has worked diligently with both the citizens of the Huntington community and staff to obtain the adoption of a Comprehensive Plan recommendation that would provide for the proposed development as well as the adoption of the new PRM Zoning District.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to:

Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley stated that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards and does not prejudice the consideration of the land use application in any way.

The question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

51. ROAD RUNNER INTERNET SERVICE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter concerning service outages with the Road Runner Internet service. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct the Department of Telecommunications and Consumer Services to require Cox Communications to not only advise this agency of all times when Road Runner service is unavailable, but also to find a mechanism for automatically applying a credit to customer's accounts for delays in excess of four hours. Supervisor Kauffman and Chairman Hanley jointly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide a status report on Road Runner service including a schedule and any problems encountered. Without objection, it was so ordered.

52. proposed conveyances of property to the public for parks, recreation, or open space (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that last December it had entered into an agreement with the Fairfax County Park Authority concerning proposed conveyances of property to the public for parks, recreation, or open space. The Board agreed to consider having such conveyances made directly to the Park Authority, absent a specific proffer or development condition that the conveyance be made directly to the Board.

Supervisor Hyland stated that Colchester Land Company, LLC is developing industrially zoned property located on both sides of I-95, between Furnace Road and the Occoquan River. Although the approved proffers do not require any of this property to be dedicated for public park purposes, Colchester Land previously agreed to convey approximately 12 acres along the Occoquan River from the property located on the south side of I-95 and approximately 14 acres along the river on the north side to the County for public open space and passive public park purposes.

Accordingly, consistent with the Board’s recent agreement with the Park Authority, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board concur that the proposed public park conveyances from Tax Map Numbers 113-3((1)) parcels 5A and 5B be made directly to the Fairfax County Park Authority.

(NOTE: The rezoning to the I-4 and I-5 Districts was approved in 1993 through Rezoning Application RZ 89-V-062. Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 89-V-062 was approved in 1998, along with two special exception applications.)

 

53. CONTINUATION OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD VOLUNTEER IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM (NVIP) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland said that the NVIP which began as a pilot in two Fairfax County neighborhoods, Huntington and Groveton, has proven to be a success in both communities. The enthusiasm of volunteers, trained by County staff from the Department of Health; Zoning Enforcement Division, Department of Planning and Zoning; and Police Department, has resulted in two significantly improved communities.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board include $83,118 for a staff position, vehicle, and training for the NVIP as a Consideration Item at the Carryover Budget Review. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to direct the County Executive to determine whether this program could be continued within existing resources and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

54. LAUREL HILL REZONING APPLICATIONS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter regarding the development of Laurel Hill. Pulte Home Corporation has filed two rezoning applications for development of Laurel Hill, the former District of Columbia Department of Corrections' prison, located at Tax Map 106-4 ((1)) 54.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the scheduling of a public hearing to be held before the Board and allow concurrent processing of the plans associated with Pulte Home Corporation's applications for Laurel Hill that have been submitted. He noted that this motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board on the proposed application and does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Supervisor Hyland noted that this application must be approved by the Board before the Meadowood Farm transfer can occur. The US Department of Interior's Bureau of Land Management will establish a wild horse and burro center on Meadowood Farm at Mason Neck in exchange for development rights for Laurel Hill.

Noting considerable confusion by the press regarding this land exchange, Chairman Hanley clarified that the Laurel Hill property is not in County ownership and, should the County ever receive any of the former Lorton prison property, that is a negotiation between the County, US General Services Administration, and the federal government. However, the land use there remains a County issue.

Supervisor Hyland further clarified that the County will serve as a middle person to ensure transfer of the title of the property.

The question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

55. BOOK ON EDUCATION WRITTEN BY CHAIRMAN HANLEY'S LATE FATHER (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that when he was in Missouri earlier in the month to attend the funeral of Chairman Hanley's father, Everett Keith, he received a book by Mr. Keith entitled In Retrospect - A Narrative on Missouri Education. He circulated it amongst the Board Members.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board revisited this book. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#72.)

56. LORTON STATION SCHOOL SITE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hyland stated that he had received a call from a constituent who lives in a new community across from the Virginia Railway Express station in Lorton. The gentleman indicated that he had received an email from someone regarding the proposed elementary school for that community and that there was some question as to whether it would be included in a bond because of environmental concerns. Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to coordinate with the School Division to resolve the issues. Without objection, it was so ordered.

57. WIEHLE AVENUE PHASE II (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that in May 2000, the County opened Wiehle Avenue Phase II from Reston Avenue to Stuart Road. Since that time residents and Supervisor Hudgins' staff have been working with the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to address several outstanding concerns.

Supervisor Hudgins said that the extent and nature of the concerns generated a joint letter signed by four neighboring homeowners associations (Shaker Woods, Shaker Woods West, Champion Lake, and Caris Glenne). The homeowners associations articulated their concerns regarding the inadequate visibility on Wiehle Avenue and its intersections, absence of right turn exit lanes from Wiehle Avenue, and the speed of through traffic. To remedy the situation, the homeowners associations recommend traffic signals, right turn lanes, visibility improvements, enforcement of the speed limit, and improved signage and striping of the road.

Supervisor Hudgins stated that constituents have also raised concern regarding the drainage ditch that was needed on Stuart Road, north and south of Wiehle Avenue. The steepness of the 4½-foot ditch raises a safety concern that is a danger for cars or persons traveling along that ditch.

Supervisor Hudgins asserted that since this is a County road construction project and as the Board at its April 2, 2001, meeting just approved the contract award for Wiehle Avenue Phase III, it is time to resolve outstanding issues from Wiehle Avenue Phase II. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct the staff in DPWES and the Department of Transportation to work expeditiously with VDOT to address and bring resolution to the outstanding community concerns. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked to amend the motion to direct staff to keep both Supervisor Hudgins' office as well as his office informed of developments as discussion occurs and this was accepted.

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

58. EMERGING BUSINESS FORUM (Tape 6)

(R) Supervisor Hudgins reported that on Tuesday, April 24, 2001, the Economic Development Authority (EDA) held a press conference to announce the Emerging Business Forum, hosted by the EDA on July 11-13, 2001, at the Westfields Conference Center. The Forum will be a unique event where participants (small, minority-owned, and women-owned businesses) will celebrate success, discuss trends, identify opportunities for strategic partnerships, and begin to build lasting relationships for full participation in the epicenter of the twenty-first century’s information and technology revolution. The purpose of the forum is to recognize, celebrate and advance culturally diverse, fast growing technology businesses in the Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC area.

Supervisor Hudgins said that on March 21, 2001, the EDA approved a resolution, copies of which she presented to the Board for approval. The resolution resolves that the Board expresses its formal intent to establish Fairfax County as open to all peoples and to promote the County as the location of choice for all people to live and work. Further the Board instructs all the agencies of County government to conduct their operations in accordance with the spirit of this principle.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board adopt the Resolution provided by the EDA as a model of goals to support the upcoming Emerging Business Forum. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to replace the word "establish" with the word "promote" and this was accepted.

Over the course of Mr. Christian's 30-year career with the Fairfax County School System, he has served as principal at Dogwood Elementary School in Reston, as well as having worked at several other elementary schools. During his tenure as principal at Langston Hughes Middle School, Mr. Christian has made it his goal to bring improvements to student achievements in English, math, science, history, and the social sciences. Langston Hughes students and faculty will greatly miss him.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Christian to appear before the Board to be recognized for his dedication and education to Fairfax County students and faculty and in particular in his role as principal at Langston Hughes Middle School and Dogwood Elementary School. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Bly to appear before the Board in recognition of his numerous years of teaching and outstanding contributions to the band program at Centreville High School.

70. SOLID WASTE DISPOSAL FEE WAIVER FOR BOY SCOUT TROOP 892'S ANNUAL FLEA MARKET (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey reminded the Board that for the past several years Boy Scout Troop 892 has held a flea market to raise money. Troop members spend all year collecting items from people throughout the community and, as a service to the community, will haul out some "less than saleable" items. This results in much trash that must be hauled to the landfill. As he has done in the past, Supervisor Frey stated that he asked the staff of the Solid Waste Disposal and Resource Recovery Division of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to waive the disposal fee.

Noting that there was no Board meeting prior to the flea market held between April 10 and 30 this year, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board waive the disposal fee for the solid waste generated by the Scout Troop 892 flea market.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to process the site plan, plat, and any other engineering documents concurrently with Rezoning Application RZ 2000-SP-058.

ADDITIONAL ACTION FROM CLOSED SESSION

79. LAND BAYS A AND C (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board took additional action on this item. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#76.)

Supervisor Frey stated that the County owns an approximately 34-acre parcel known as "Land Bay A" as shown on the map as distributed to the Board. The site is located in the Fairfax Center Area and the adopted Plan allows office mixed use at a maximum intensity of .45 floor area ratio at the overall level. Koll Metropolitan, LLC, is interested in purchasing and developing Land Bay A. Koll Metropolitan, LLC, is proposing to develop 458,000 square feet of office use, 171,789 square feet of retail use and a 38,200 square-foot forensics laboratory. These uses would be contained in three separate buildings. The forensics lab would be leased by the County with an option to purchase. While the total square feet of the development is within the limit permitted by the Plan, a Plan Amendment would be required to allow retail use. Given the recent development of retail use (Gaylan's, Kohl's, Fair Lakes Promenade) near Land Bay A, Supervisor Frey stated his belief that additional retail use would not be out of character with the area. In addition, the site may provide an opportunity to locate the County's Forensics Lab, which is identified as a project in the current Capital Improvement Program.

To accomplish these objectives, it will be necessary for the Board to initiate an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan and Board's Own Motion to transfer approximately 25,000 square feet of floor area from Land Bay C of the Government Center Complex to Land Bay A. A concurrent proffered condition amendment (PCA)/final development plan amendment (FDPA) application will be filed by Koll Metropolitan, LLC for Land Bay A to establish the site design for the proposed office, retail, and forensic facility.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize an Out-of-Turn Amendment for Land Bay A, as shown on the referenced map. The proposed Plan Amendment should consider changes to allow retail use and public facility use, including a forensic laboratory.

Supervisor Frey further moved that the Board:

WHEREAS, there is an excess of unutilized floor area in Land Bay C of the Government Center; and

WHEREAS, Koll Metropolitan, LLC is proposing to develop a 38,200 square foot forensic lab for lease by County agencies in Land Bay A; and

WHEREAS, the public necessity, convenience, general welfare, and good zoning practice require consideration of such action;

THEREFORE, the Board shall initiate a Board's Own Motion PCA application for Tax Map 55-2 ((1)) 15, zoned PDC.

Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.
