24. PRISONER OF WAR/MISSING IN ACTION (POW/MIA) FLAG (Tape 3)

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that Judge F. Bruce Bach has announced his retirement as Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Fairfax County, effective June 30, 2001. Judge Bach has had a distinguished career as both a practicing attorney and as a jurist. His myriad contributions to the Circuit Court, including his initiatives for improving the efficiency and the effectiveness of that court system and for the courthouse expansion project, are note-worthy and have been recognized beyond this jurisdiction. Under his leadership, the Fairfax County Circuit Court has gained a reputation unparalleled in the Commonwealth. Judge Bach has raised the profile of the Fairfax County Circuit Court and the associated Fairfax Bar Association through his own dedication and example and through the community outreach that he has fostered. Throughout his career, he has mentored countless young lawyers, many of whom regard him as a personal friend as well as a professional colleague.

Accordingly, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite Chief Judge Bach to appear before the Board at a date to be determined to recognize his significant accomplishments and contributions to Fairfax County. The motion was multiply seconded and it carried by unanimous vote.

26. PINE SPRING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PRINCIPAL ANDREA WARNER RETIRES (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly announced that Andrea Warner, principal of Pine Spring Elementary School for the last ten years, has announced her retirement.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Warner to appear before the Board to be recognized for her many years of service to the children of Pine Spring Elementary and Fairfax County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

27. FALLS CHURCH HIGH SCHOOL SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER WINS FREIDA J. REILLY AWARD (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly noted a feature story on the cover of this week's Washington Post Metro section. Wendy Shugol, a special education teacher at Falls Church High School, was presented this week with the 2001 Freida J. Reilly Teacher Award at a ceremony at the National Air and Space Museum.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Shugol to appear before the Board to be honored for her extraordinary career in Fairfax County Public Schools and to recognize her unique ongoing role in the lives of many classes of very special Fairfax County students over the last 25 years. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Connolly said that on November 20, 2000, the Board approved Rezoning Application RZ 2000-PR-010 in the name of Winchester Homes to permit redevelopment of certain property off Cyrandall Valley Road. As part of that application a public hearing is needed on an abandonment and vacation of a portion of Cyrandall Valley Road and Thistle Lane.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on June 11, 2001, on the abandonment and vacation requests. This action does not prejudice the consideration of this review in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

29. KRASNOW AND MACKALL PROPERTIES CONCURRENT PROCESSING (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly said that an application is currently pending before the City of Fairfax to rezone properties located on the east side of Pickett Road, known as the Krasnow and Mackall properties. Approximately, but not less than, 15 acres of the Krasnow property will be dedicated to the County for park use.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to permit the public improvement plan to be processed expeditiously and concurrently with the application which is pending in the City of Fairfax. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

30. REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION FOR MR. TOM BARTELT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins said that Mr. Tom Bartelt's career with Reston's Community Television Station began as a volunteer more than 30 years ago. When Mr. Bartelt heard cable was coming to Reston, he immediately called the local cable company, then known as the Reston Transmission Company. He was one of the first volunteers of a neophyte community television station. A year later Mr. Bartelt left his full time job at a well known television station to become the community programming manager of Reston's Community Television. After 30 years of community television of festivals, meetings, sports events, and debates, Mr. Bartelt is retiring. Over the years he found his work to be truly unique, providing opportunities for members of the community to speak out through cable.

Supervisor Hudgins said that Mr. Bartelt has also encouraged young people to volunteer at the station and has taught them everything from running cameras to editing. His involvement with youth has spanned over several generations of high school students.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Bartelt to appear before the Board to be recognized for his many years of service and dedication to the youth and the Reston community as the Programming Manager of Reston Cable. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a unanimous vote.

31. REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION FOR MS. BONNIE WHITE RUPP (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins said that Ms. Bonnie White Rupp has been named the Virginia State Reading Teacher Association's Teacher of the Year. Ms. Rupp has taught reading at Aldrin Elementary School since 1984. She has been the recipient of many awards including being the Greater Washington Reading Council Teacher of the Year last year and the Virginia Technology Teacher of the Year in 1995.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Rupp to appear before the Board to be recognized for her outstanding accomplishment. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by unanimous vote.

32. RENTAL HOUSING LOANS AT RISK (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins referred to a news article from the Washington Post, dated May 4, 2001, page A23, noting that $3.5 billion in federally backed loans to build approximately 51,000 affordable rental apartments will evaporate unless Congress and the Bush administration reverse a shutdown of the Federal Housing Administration rental housing loan program.

Supervisor Hudgins expressed concern about how this will impact states around the nation. She asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report with the loss and the risk to the projects in Fairfax County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide a status report at the May 21, 2001, meeting. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

A brief discussion ensued.

33. APPRECIATION TO THE BOARD AND THE COUNTY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Hudgins referred to the McDonald's case that was before the Supreme Court in which a lower court had rescinded an action by the Fairfax County Board. She said that constituents expressed appreciation to the Board and the County Attorney's office for the job that was done in supporting the interests of the citizens in that case.

34. SPRINGFIELD DAYS (Tape 5)

Jointly with Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Kauffman said that this year will be the Thirteenth Annual Springfield Days celebration, running from Thursday, May 31 through Sunday, June 3.

Supervisor Kauffman pointed out that each year the celebration that is sponsored by the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce grows bigger and better and this year is no exception.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to:

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

35. EXPEDITIOUS PROCESSING REGARDING KINGSTOWNE REGIONAL LIBRARY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the public hearing for the proffered condition amendment application and the final development plan amendment application for the future site of the Kingstowne regional library located at Tax Map 90-1 ((1)) 10B by scheduling a public hearing to be held before the Board on August 6, 2001, at 4:30 p.m. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation from the Board and does not relieve the applicant from complying with applicable regulations, policies and standards. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

36. REQUEST FROM THE WILLOW CREEK COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman said that several years ago, the Board of Directors of the Willow Creek Community Association expressed an interest in having Fairfax County deed to the association the strip of land that runs between the current property line for Willow Creek and the chain link fence that surrounds the adjacent storm water detention pond. This land transfer would allow Willow Creek to maintain the area next to the pond and improve it without having to request permission to enter County property.

Supervisor Kauffman said that at the time the original request for the transfer was made, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) was still in the process of constructing the storm water management facility. VDOT has completed its work and Willow Creek would like to pursue the land transfer.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to research this request and report with a possible action plan for the conveyance. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

37. POSSIBLE CONSOLIDATION OF RISK MANAGEMENT OFFICES (Tape 5)

Supervisor Kauffman referred to a position advertisement that appeared in yesterday's Washington Post. The Fairfax County Public Schools are seeking a Director for Risk Management Services with a hiring salary range of $58,129 to $83,895.

Supervisor Kauffman said that for all the talk of possible consolidation of services between the County and the School System, this is yet another position and another area that screams for detailed investigation and action. Why should taxpayers fund two risk management offices, especially given the difficult budget decisions facing the Board today and in the years ahead? For the "price" of the school position, the School Board could fund two starting teachers at "higher than Loudoun" salaries.

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board request that the School Board delay filling this position until the County Executive and the Superintendent have the opportunity to review the possible consolidation of the Risk Management offices. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

A brief discussion ensued.

38. CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF SITE PLAN ASSOCIATED WITH REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2000-MA-055 (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that Mr. John Thillmann and Landmark Property Development have filed Rezoning Application RZ 2000-MA-055. To facilitate the process, the applicant has requested that the site plan be reviewed concurrently.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to process the site plan associated with this application concurrently. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation in the rezoning application by the Board, and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

39. STATE HISTORICAL MARKERS DEDICATION CEREMONY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that on May 8, 2001, Civil War reenactment actors will gather in Mason District, much as Union and Confederate soldiers did 140 years ago, this time to peacefully dedicate three State historical markers commemorating local Civil War events. The three markers to be dedicated are Mason's Hill, Civil War Engagements, and Fort Buffalo. They will join three existing markers in the Baileys Crossroads area which also commemorate the Civil War: J.E.B. Stuart at Munson's Hill, Baileys Crossroads, and Lincoln Reviews the Troops at Baileys Crossroads.

Supervisor Gross said that the event will be held at the Mason District Governmental Center located at 6507 Columbia Pike in Annandale, providing adults and children another opportunity to learn about history. Reenactment actors representing Virginia and Maine companies will put on a "living history" display beginning at 1 p.m. The dedication ceremony for the three historical markers will start at 3 p.m. featuring Ed Bearss, Chief Historian Emeritus of the National Park Service and one of the foremost experts on the Civil War. Mason District residents and all who are interested in history are invited to this special event.

 

40. CRIME PREVENTION SAFETY DAY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross said that on Friday, May 11, 2001, the Mason District Station of the Fairfax County Police will hold a Crime Prevention Safety Day. The event will be held in the Sears parking lot near Seven Comers located at 6211 Leesburg Pike, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Information will be provided on such subjects as auto theft prevention, new methods of marking personal belongings, care for senior citizens, and installation of child safety seats. All residents of Mason District are encouraged to attend Crime Prevention Safety Day this Friday.
