36. GROWTH OF GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITY (GMU) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that GMU has grown significantly in the past two decades. He noted that the current fiscal impasse in the General Assembly has, and will continue to have, serious consequences for all of the Commonwealth's universities and colleges.

First among the impacts of this fiscal impasse will be the inability of GMU to meet the needs of Northern Virginia. Currently, the University meets those needs by admitting increasingly more students and graduating increasingly more highly qualified students, many of whom remain and work in Fairfax County. Applicants are drawn to GMU because of the quality of its programs, and it is imperative that the quality of those programs is not allowed to fall below a competitive level. In this regard, the most immediate need is the construction of "Academic IV" on the Fairfax campus. This high tech, wired classroom building significantly enhances the capabilities of the University to deliver courses in all disciplines. Moreover, construction of this new space will enable much needed renovation of older buildings for which there is currently no alternative space to hold classes. Although "Academic IV" was fully funded in the 2000-2002 Biennium Budget, funds to begin construction were among those expenditures that were withheld to "balance the budget."

The bid received for construction of "Academic IV" is below the projected costs, and the contractor has extended its bid for a third time. That bid expires on June 15, 2001, and the estimated cost of rebidding the construction is at least $500,000. Absent the release of funds to begin construction of this critical project, GMU will be unable to construct a building it desperately needs, will lose the opportunity to renovate other classroom buildings, and the Commonwealth will incur a half million dollar increase in costs for the rebidding process.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board:

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

37. EDGEMORE LAND LLC (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that Edgemore Land LLC is the applicant for Rezoning Application RZ-01-DR-01 to rezone the Davis Property in Herndon. The applicant has worked very cooperatively with the community and has requested concurrent processing.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to proceed with concurrent processing of this application. 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 rezoning application. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

38. MCLEAN HIGH SCHOOL CONCERT BAND (Tape 4)

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that the McLean High School Concert Band, under the direction of Mr. Jim Kirchenbauer, has been awarded the Sudler Flag of Honor by the John Philip Sousa Foundation, which is the nation's most prestigious award for high school concert bands. This year, the McLean High School Concert Band was one of only three high school bands in the entire nation to receive the Sudler Flag of Honor.

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that to receive this honor, these musicians had to demonstrate high standards of excellence in concert programs, superior ratings by adjudicators in concert activities, complete and balanced program of musical activities including concert, solo/ensemble, marching areas, jazz ensemble, performance at professional meetings of significance, and student participation in district, State, and/or honor bands. In addition, to qualify for this honor, Mr. Kirchenbauer had to be an incumbent in his position as Director for at least the past seven years.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Kirchenbauer, representatives of the Concert Band, representatives of the Band Parents, and Administrators of McLean High School, to appear before the Board on June 25, 2001, to be recognized and congratulated for this significant accomplishment. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

 

39. EXPANSION OF THE ROBINSON RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Bulova said that student parking on residential streets around Robinson Secondary School continues to be a serious problem and expansion of the Robinson RPPD is needed. She said that she has forwarded to the Department of Transportation (DOT) a petition for the expansion of the Robinson RPPD on Gainsborough Drive from Roberts Road to Wheatstone Drive and on Nantucket Court.

To proceed with the request, DOT needs Board approval to waive the filing fees. Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to waive the fees and to proceed as expeditiously as possible. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

40. SYMPHONY SPECTACULAR (Tape 4)

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 their 2000-2001 season. This season marks the anniversary of American Youth String Ensemble Conductor Bonnie Hudson's tenth anniversary with AYP Orchestras.

Supervisor Bulova noted that the AYP Orchestras offers the youngest, most promising string musicians the fundamentals of playing as a gateway to more advanced symphonic literature. The group plays primarily arranged pieces, however, it has progressed to playing original works.

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to prepare a Certificate of Appreciation to be presented to Ms. Hudson for her outstanding contributions to the youth and the musical community. Without objection, it was so ordered.

41. INVENTORY OF COUNTY ACTIVITIES, PROGRAMS, AND SERVICES (ICAPS) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Bulova reminded the Board that the Budget Guidelines it adopted called for a review of County activities, programs, and services. Staff has begun this process which will be called ICAPS.

To give the Board time to consider this report, Supervisor Bulova requested Board Members to reserve the following dates on their calendars for workshops:

September 17 9 a.m. until noon 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.

October 29 9 a.m. until noon 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.

42. CELEBRATE FAIRFAX (Tape 4)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting this item was discussed. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#1.)

Supervisor Gross noted the various displays by County staff with regard to Celebrate Fairfax. She referred to the quilt that was being assembled by the Department of Systems Management for Human Services. She added that it was building on the community sampler study that was done last fall. She said that they are planning seven quilts to be displayed in Human Services Regional offices.

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to also display the quilts at the Government Center. Without objection, it was so ordered.

43. COLUMBIA PIKE TRAIL (Tape 4)

Supervisor Gross announced that after many years of effort, the Columbia Pike Trail segment across from the Lake Barcroft Dam is complete. She noted that this is a heavily traveled, yet quite dangerous stretch of Columbia Pike, passing over a steep drop to Holmes Run. This trail segment has been envisioned for decades, but was once thought to be impossible to construct. However, one weekend ago, a 184-foot long prefabricated bridge was dropped into place.

Supervisor Gross said that last weekend was the culmination of a million dollar project which took five years of planning, design, fundraising, and construction. It happened because an incredible array of individuals and organizations worked closely with her office to make it a reality. That list includes:

44. EXPEDITED PUBLIC HEARING FOR PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA C-696-03 (DSV DULLES FOX MILL LP) (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hudgins said that DSV Dulles Fox Mill LP has a pending land use application, Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA C-696-03 to make modifications to existing proffers. The request involves no changes to the uses, intensity, or design.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board approve an expedited Board date and direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on August 6, 2001, for this application. 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 this application in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Kauffman being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

45. WAIVER OF FEES ASSOCIATED WITH THE RENOVATION TO THE VIENNA FIRE STATION (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hudgins said that as part of the overall renovation to the Vienna Fire Station (Company 2), the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department (VVFD) is replacing the front apparatus doors, installing energy efficient windows in the community hall, and replacing the front facade.

Supervisor Hudgins said that VVFD has requested a fee waiver for the County review and inspection fees for the replacement of the front apparatus doors. Replacement of the doors is being done because of the poor quality of the current doors, height restrictions, and energy concerns that are starting to have a negative operational impact on fire and rescue operations. In addition, the replacement of the doors is being done since the wooden doors are beginning to rot and the new fire trucks are experiencing difficulty fitting into the fire station. VVFD plans to put the project out for the bid in June with the intent of construction being complete in October.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board approve the fee waiver for the County review and inspection fees associated with this project. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

46. CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION TO THE RESTON POLICE STATION AND THE FOX MILL FIRE AND RESCUE STATION 31 (Tape 4)

Supervisor Hudgins said that recently constituents wrote to her office to express their appreciation to the public safety officers from the Reston Police Station and the Fox Mill Fire and Rescue Station 31 who responded to an emergency call on May 6, 2001.

Supervisor Hudgins said that on May 6, 2001, an unlicensed driver had lost control of her car and crashed through the constituent's home and into their living room. The police, fire and rescue squad, and ambulances immediately arrived on the scene to assist the constituents out of their home. Because part of the home had caved-in, the cave-in team took precautions to avoid any further collapse to the house. Because of the immediate response by the public safety officers, a potentially tragic situation was avoided.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board, on behalf of Stephen and Jean Yednock of 12728 Bradwell Road in Oak Hill, send a Certificate of Appreciation to the Reston District Police Station and the Fox Mill Fire and Rescue Station 31 to express appreciation and support for the well-coordinated efforts and the immediate response given to the Yednocks. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

47. APPOINTMENT TO THE REVITALIZATION POLICY COMMITTEE (Tape 4)

(APPT) Supervisor Hudgins said that Mr. Mike Miller has submitted his resignation from the Revitalization Policy Committee. Ms. Sarah Larson has agreed to replace Mr. Miller as the Hunter Mill District Representative.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved the appointment of Ms. Sarah Larson to fill the unexpired term of Mr. Miller as the Hunter Mill District Representative to the Revitalization Policy Committee. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

51. FRANCONIA-SPRINGFIELD METRO STATION (Tape 4)

To address current parking shortages and allow for future growth, a 1,000 parking space garage expansion is being planned and designed at this time, with ground-breaking planned for later this year. Putting this much-needed structure in place as soon as possible will benefit the community and particularly those who depend upon Metro.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board approve both expedited and concurrent processing of the site plan and related engineering drawings with the Special Exception and process the plans under the Modified Processing Program. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation of this application by the Board and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell not yet having arrived.

52. LEE NIGHTS (Tape 4)

Supervisor Connolly made reference to struggles over the years to acquire both a library and park site in the Oakton area. He noted that efforts to acquire a library site proved successful, but acquiring land for a park has been elusive. However, he said that there now is an opportunity to acquire land for a park. He stated that he would add the discussion of this matter to the agenda for closed session.
