The State team was chosen March 24 in Richmond at a contest sponsored by the Virginia Society of Professional Engineer and several private corporations. As a result of this competition, three Longfellow students and a student from Carl Sandberg Middle School in Alexandria were chosen to represent Virginia at the national level. Several other Longfellow team members had perfect papers in all three written rounds. MathCounts, which was started in 1983, tests over 500,000 public, private, parochial and home-schooled students using a difficult written and oral problem solving format. Members of the winning team received $2,000 college scholarships from Dow Chemical Company, trips to the US Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama, and Compaq Presario notebook computers. The students met with President Bush and Vice-President Cheney following the event.

Accordingly, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite:

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

30. RECOGNITION OF THE CULINARY SKILLS OF MR. BASIM NAGA (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that on Sunday, May 6, 2001, Basim Naga, a junior at Herndon High School and the Chantilly Academy, competed in a State competition of the Virginia skills - VICA Culinary Institute in Norfolk. Mr. Naga was able to outcook his competition to walk away with a first place State championship and a $3,000 per year scholarship to the Culinary Institute of America in New York. Mr. Naga will be traveling to Kansas City in June to compete as the Virginia representative at the national competition. Mr. Naga's skills have impressed several Herndon High School parents and the patrons of Paolo's restaurant in Reston where he is employed.

Accordingly, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Naga to appear before the Board to receive a Certificate of Congratulations and wish him well in representing Fairfax County and the Commonwealth of Virginia at the national competition. Without objection, it was so ordered.

31. SUNRISE/INOVA MCLEAN ASSISTED LIVING LLC FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 98-D-023 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that Sunrise/INOVA McLean Assisted Living, LLC, is the applicant for a Special Exception Amendment Application SEA-98-D-023 to reconfigure the previously approved building footprint and architecture for an assisted living facility. The property to be developed is located at Tax Map Number 29-1 ((20)) Parcel A.

Supervisor Mendelsohn noted that on April 30, 2001, the Board approved concurrent processing for this application. Since that time, the applicant has voluntarily deferred its application at the request of the Health Care Advisory Board to provide that body an opportunity to review the application. This has delayed Sunrise beyond the time frame anticipated for final action on its application.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on this application for June 11, 2001. This motion does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of any and all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards, and does not constitute support by the Board for the Special Exception Amendment. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

32. PERENNIAL STREAMS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that on January 29, 2001, the Board's Environmental Committee met to discuss among other topics, the Environmental Quality Advisory Council's Resolution on Mapping of Perennial Streams. The Code of the County of Fairfax, in conformity with the Commonwealth's minimum requirements, uses the United States Geological Survey 7.5 minute quadrangle map to identify perennial streams. These maps are known to include errors that inconsistently and inaccurately depict perennial streams, and it is estimated that as many as 20 percent are misidentified. To comply with the Chesapeake Bay 2000 Act, it is imperative that the County identify and map these perennial streams accurately so that they might be placed in Resource Protection Areas as soon as possible. On May 7, 2001, staff provided the Board with two proposals to accomplish this task.

Accordingly, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff place $196,189 on the Consideration List for Carryover for the purpose of beginning the remapping of the streams in Fairfax County. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review how and at what cost, the remapping might be expedited and report its findings to the Board prior to Carryover. Without objection, it was so ordered.

33. TREE COVER, TREE PRESERVATION, AND PLANTING REQUIREMENTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that on May 16, 2001, the Tree Preservation Task Force made a unanimous motion to endorse proposed amendments to the Code of the County of Fairfax relating to tree cover, tree preservation, and planting requirements.

This proposal is the result of a three-year collaboration by Fairfax County and representatives of the land development community. The parties were charged with implementing a Tree Preservation Task Force recommendation to examine how to amend the Code of the County of Fairfax to increase tree preservation efforts and to update and clarify other requirements relating to the County's tree cover requirements.

Supervisor Mendelsohn distributed to Board Members proposed amendments to the Public Facilities Manual (PFM), the Zoning Ordinance, and the Subdivision Ordinance. In addition, the Tree Preservation Task Force also recommended that staff:

Therefore, jointly with Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to proceed, on an expedited basis, with proposed amendments to the Code of the County of Fairfax and the PFM relating to tree cover, tree preservation, and planting requirements. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

34. TRIAD SALT COUNCIL FOR PROVIDENCE DISTRICT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that TRIAD is a national movement that represents a three-way partnership among a community's older or retired leaders, its local chief of police, and its sheriff.

Supervisor Connolly announced that Providence District is the first supervisor district to establish a district Seniors and Law Enforcement Together (SALT) Council. This group of talented and dedicated seniors is joined by representatives from law enforcement, AARP, the County Commission on Aging, and the Department of Fire and Rescue.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite the Providence District SALT Council to appear before the Board to be recognized for their dedication to crime prevention and to be encouraged in their future efforts. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

35. ROBINSON STUDENTS AND FACULTY PURCHASE OF AN AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR (AED) HEART MACHINE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that students at Robinson Secondary School spearheaded a fundraising and public relations campaign that gathered $5,000 to purchase an AED. The AED "heart machines" are used in offices, hotels, airplanes, and other public environments, but Virginia health officials believe Robinson is the only high school in the State with one of the devices. The machine is designed to monitor the heart's electrical activity and is capable of delivering an electric shock if necessary. Sudden cardiac arrest kills more that 250,000 Americans each year and almost always strikes without warning, often in an individual with no history of a heart condition.

Supervisor Bulova said that the idea to purchase an AED came from a 2000 graduate of Robinson Secondary School, Jennifer Bowen. The advanced marketing class and 320 Robinson DECA members with the aid of their faculty sponsors orchestrated the fundraising efforts under the leadership of project director, Heather Lykins. The project was taken to DECA competitions, where Michael Kimlick and Stacey Williams served as the competition interview team. The project rose to the top ten in the public relations division at the National DECA Career Development Conference.

The students worked closely with the American Red Cross as well as the American Heart Association and garnered much media attention in support of the "Teaching Children to Save Lives Act" to provide grants for CPR training in schools. They lobbied, rallied, held press conferences and built a website. Over 50 members of Congress agreed to sign on the bill when it is reintroduced in the 107th Congress thanks to the student's efforts. The Department of Fire and Rescue are using their campaign as a model in order to help other schools in Virginia.

In recognition of these public-spirited accomplishments, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite representatives of Robinson's award winning DECA/marketing group to appear before the Board to receive a Certificate of Recognition for their work. Without objection, it was so ordered.

36. SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that last week a press conference was held by Delegates Jack Rust and Dave Albo regarding a proposal to accelerate the construction of schools for renewal and new schools. She said that previously she had asked staff to research their proposal for a build-lease proposal and County staff responded to several of their proposals, one with a County land swap, proffers for schools, and build-leasing; however, the actual proposal that was presented at this press conference was not specifically addressed.

Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct County staff to work with School staff to respond directly to the proposal that was presented at the press conference earlier this week. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Odyssey of the Mind is an international problem-solving competition for students from kindergarten through college. The team placed first in the Middle School Division at the Virginia Odyssey of the Mind Association finals on April 28, 2001, in Fairfax defeating last year's defending champions.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite the students from Forest Edge Elementary School to appear before the Board to be recognized for their outstanding accomplishments. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

40. WAIVER OF FEES FOR USE OF THE SHOWMOBILE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins announced that the Vienna Community will celebrate the eighteenth Annual Viva Vienna festival on Saturday, May 26, 2001, from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. and Sunday, May 27, 2001, from 12:30 p.m. until 7 p.m., along historic Church Street in Vienna. The Viva Vienna festival committee has requested a fee waiver for use of the Showmobile for the eighteenth Annual celebration.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board grant the fee waiver to the Viva Vienna festival for use of the Showmobile. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

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

Supervisor Hudgins invited Board Members to join her in celebrating 18 years of Viva Vienna!

41. FAIRFAX LEADERSHIP AND RESILIENCY PROGRAM (Tape 7)

43. BUS SHELTER REPLACEMENT (Tape 7)

A brief discussion ensued.

44. CULMORE DAY LABORERS’ COMMITTEE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross said that in 1998, the Hispanic Committee of Virginia, Saint Anthony's Catholic Church, the Woodrow Wilson Action Group, and his office, formed the Culmore Day Laborers' Committee Trade Skills Training Project, which is a pilot, public-private partnership working for the Culmore community.

The committee was formed to consider and address the needs of the day laborer community, which congregates at the 7-11 Store on Glen Carlyn Road. Through the administration of the Hispanic Committee of Virginia, a unique program was established to help the day laborers by combining vocational and language instruction. With the generous support of volunteer instructors and private sector companies, this public-private partnership has been a resounding success.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to send certificates of recognition to two individuals who volunteered their time and resources to help make this program possible:

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

After noting his citizen involvement, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to invite MPO Kelly to appear before the Board to receive a certificate of appreciation for his years of service and his contribution to a good quality of life for the residents of the Richmond Highway Corridor. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Kauffman stated that Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 1997-LE-019 has been filed to change the use of a building in the Richmond Highway revitalization area from a former tile and flooring store to a medical office building. The new tenant for the medical office building is moving from an existing location in the corridor to expand his services.

Because the application is in a revitalization district and will result in an improved use for the existing vacant building, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board approve concurrent processing with the site plans and related engineering drawings associated with Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 1997-LE-019. He noted that this motion shall in no way prejudge the merits of the pending zoning applications in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the Board formally deferred these public hearings. See Clerk's Summary Items CL#62, CL#65, and CL#69.)

48. PURCHASE OF LIDAR LASER BEAM SPEED MEASURING DEVICE (Tape 8)

Supervisor McConnell reminded the Board that on May 5, 2001, there was a tragic double fatality motor vehicle crash on the Fairfax County Parkway between Waterline Drive and Old Keene Mill Road. She noted that she had asked the Chief of Police to provide her with a crash and enforcement statistics package, which he did. Subsequently she learned of problems with the use of conventional radar on this roadway because of the traffic volume.

Supervisor McConnell stated that the Commonwealth of Virginia has approved Lidar, a laser beam speed measuring device for use by police departments in enforcing traffic speed violations. This device emits a beam that spreads only three inches wide at a distance of one thousand feet and is accurate enough to aim like a pistol. The Police Department had requested these devices, but they were not recommended during the budget process.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct the County Executive to use funds from her office budget to purchase two Lidar speed measuring devices (at $4000 each) immediately and determine whether there are other funds available for the purchase of this device. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Hyland asked to amend the motion to a unanimous consent request to direct the County Executive to:

50. CLIFTON PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH (Tape 8)

Supervisor McConnell stated that the Clifton Presbyterian Church, which was originally built in 1852, is located within the Town of Clifton limits. For many years a church, classrooms, and day care facility have operated at this location, which is served by sewer. Church representatives are desirous of updating their annex building, built in the 1950s and known as the "Manse," and in doing so must conform to the currently applicable laws and regulations. Board approval is necessary for an increase in the number of fixture units on the lot to allow the present use to be continued under revised regulations that will take effect with the remodeling. Such approvals have been accomplished in the past through a Board Consideration Item.

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct the County Executive to prepare a Consideration Item to address the Church’s request to increase the number of fixture units allowed for the Clifton Presbyterian Church's "Manse" property, Lot 13, located in the Town of Clifton, for the June 11, 2001, Board meeting.

He distributed a device and videotape on its use to each Board Member.

Supervisor Hyland stated that the Candl Foundation will give one case of these phones to any elementary school in the United States and then provide any additional phones at a current cost of $2 per phone. The Kent Gardens Elementary School in McLean is using these phones.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide several copies of the videotape and the Phonic Whisper Phone to the Fairfax County School Superintendent and his staff for review and consideration for use by the School System. Without objection, it was so ordered.

52. MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT (MOA) ASSOCIATED WITH MOUNT VERNON ESTATE PARKING NEEDS (Tape 8)

With reference to his written Board Matters that he had distributed to the Board, Supervisor Hyland called the Board's attention to a MOA between the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association, the Department of the Interior National Park Service, the Virginia Department of Transportation, the County, and the Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration. This MOA concerns a study regarding the provision of additional parking at the Mount Vernon Estate and possible transportation improvements in this area. He noted that this MOA had been negotiated over the last several months.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board:

Following brief input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, who indicated his approval, Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Discussion continued briefly.

53. INTERPRETATION OF REZONING APPLICATION RZ 97-MV-008 FOR MOUNT VEE (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland referenced his written Board Matter on the subject of an interpretation of Rezoning Application RZ 97-MV-008 and noted a proffer that creates a problem for the owner of the property who desires to remove his old house.

Discussion continued briefly.

 

54. PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, CHAPTER 41 (ANIMALS AND FOWL) (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that on March 5, 2001, he had raised the issue of including hedgehogs, specifically the "African pygmy" variety, as acceptable pets in Fairfax County. He called the Board's attention to a recent memorandum from the County Executive that stated that other jurisdictions in Virginia allow the adoption of African pygmy hedgehogs. Based on this and the concurrence of the Virginia Department of Health, it is recommended that the Board amend the Code so that these types of hedgehogs are excluded from the definition of "wild and exotic animals."

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that Board direct staff to proceed with process of amending the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 41 (Animals and Fowl), to consider the addition of the African pygmy hedgehog to the list of exclusions under the definition of wild and exotic animals. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Kauffman asked to amend the motion to specify "domestic" hedgehogs or those "bred in the United States" and this was accepted.

Following further discussion, the question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.
