Following discussion, Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to change "Maximize" to "Increase and maximize," and this was accepted.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley asked to amend the motion to include language to the last bullet that "as the Resolution suggests review it annually," and this was accepted.

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

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

24. I-4 – WEST OX COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS SITE (Tape 4)

The Board next considered an item contained in the Memorandum to the Board dated July 23, 2001, announcing that staff:

Discussion ensued with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive and James D. Gorby, Director, Department of Vehicle Services regarding issues related to air quality and ultra-low fuels.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the Board discussed another item regarding the County's fleet. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#25)

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

25. COMPOSITION OF COUNTY'S FLEET (Tape 5)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board discussed another issue regarding the County's fleet. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#24.)

Chairman Hanley stated that recently the Transportation Planning Board (TPC) began the process of amending the region's Constrained Long Range Plan, using the most recent vehicle registration data. According to the draft analysis to test for conformity with the adopted clean air plan, the projection for the region suggests that it will be out of compliance in 2005. Part of the problem seems to be the increase in the number of Sport-Utility Vehicles (SUVs) and the vehicle miles the SUVs travel. SUVs, classified as light trucks, do not have the same emissions requirements as cars. She noted that SUVs and four-wheel drive vehicles are not synonymous because some cars have four-wheel drive.

Chairman Hanley stated that according to the Fiscal Year 2002 Adopted Budget, the County has a fleet of 5,184 vehicles, of which approximately 1,380 are school buses. She relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct the County Executive to:

Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked to amend the motion to request the School Board to also participate, and this was accepted.

Chairman Hanley clarified that the fleet of 5,184 vehicles included those for the School Division.

Following a lengthy discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, and James D. Gorby, Director, Department of Vehicles Services, the question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.

26. FAIRFAX FILM AND VIDEO FESTIVAL (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley announced that Fairfax Cable Access is sponsoring a Fairfax Film and Video Festival from December 2-8, 2001, to provide a forum for showing the work of talented residents within the Metropolitan Washington area. The goal of the festival is to inspire, inform, educate, and further the ideal embodied in the First Amendment. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from Fairfax Cable Access to appear before the Board on December 3, 2001, to receive a proclamation declaring December 2-8, 2001, as "Fairfax Film and Video Festival Week" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

27. HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Office of Equity Programs and the Hispanic community to appear before the Board at the September 10, 2001, meeting to receive a proclamation declaring "Hispanic Heritage Month" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

28. RECOGNITION OF GROUPS FOR THEIR SUPPORT OF THE MEDICAL CARE FOR CHILDREN PARTNERSHIP (MCCP) (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley announced that the Office of Partnerships wishes to recognize four groups for their support of the MCCP. She moved that the Board direct staff to invite the following individuals and the companies they represent to appear before the Board on August 6, 2001, to be recognized for their contributions to the MCCP programs:

Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

29. CHORAL MUSIC WEEK (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Fairfax Choral Society to appear before the Board on September 10, 2001, to receive a proclamation declaring September 10-16, 2001, as "Choral Music Week" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

30. MENTAL ILLNESS AWARENESS WEEK (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board to appear before the Board on October 1, 2001, to receive a proclamation declaring October 7-13, 2001, as "Mental Illness Awareness Week" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

31. FUNDING FOR GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITY (GMU) (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley shared with the Board copies of a letter from John W. Forbes, Secretary of Finance for the Commonwealth of Virginia, in response to a letter from the Board expressing concern about funding for GMU.

32. FIRE SPRINKLERS (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley distributed to the Board copies of an article from the July 19, 2001, edition of The Washington Post. The article noted that 35 million defective fire sprinklers were being recalled.

Following brief input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide a detailed report as to the cost to the County regarding this issue. Without objection, it was so ordered.

33. ACTION ALERT FROM THE VIRGINIA MUNICIPAL LEAGUE (VML) REGARDING PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE BUILDING CODE (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley announced that the Board of Housing and Community Development is set to consider amendments to the building code that would require the building official to act on an application for a single or two-family structure within 15 days of receipt of the final application. This announcement was an alert from the VML.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

34. TRUCK RESTRICTIONS ON HUNTER MILL ROAD (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that he has been contacted by several citizens inquiring about the possibility of placing truck restrictions on Hunter Mill Road. He noted that Hunter Mill Road is a route rich in history, and its residents continue to be actively involved in efforts to preserve its historic landmarks. Residents of this corridor are currently working with the Commonwealth of Virginia in efforts to recognize the historic significance of the road and its environs, including designation of Hunter Mill Road as a "Virginia Byway."

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that among the concerns shared by many residents in the Hunter Mill Road corridor is the influx of trucks carrying hazardous materials cargo on the thoroughfare. Residents of the corridor are concerned that the two-lane Hunter Mill Road, with its winding turns and steep hills, is ill-suited to trucks in general, and even less suited to HazMat trucks.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following discussion, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the follow-up on the same matter to her office. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide information regarding potential enforcement and enforcement costs. Without objection, it was so ordered.

35. REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that Ms. Puneet Gambhir of Herndon has been appointed to the inaugural Youth Partnership Team for America's Promise. America's Promise, a program founded by now Secretary of State Colin Powell after the priority for such a program was established at the Presidents' Summit for America's Future in 1997, involves young people in its effort to build character and competence in today's youth. The Youth Partnership Team is made up of young people between the ages of 14 and 22 and will serve as a sounding board and leadership group for the America's Promise staff. A basic tenet of America's Promise is that young people are resources and leaders and that they are part of the solution, not the problem.

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that Ms. Gambhir has the distinction of being the youngest member to participate in the Youth Partnership Team for America's Promise. At 14 years of age, she has been active in the Fairfax County Community of Promise and has demonstrated significant service and leadership potential to benefit children and youth.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Puneet Gambhir to appear before the Board at a date to be determined to recognize her significant accomplishments and participation in the Youth Partnership Team of America's Promise. Without objection, it was so ordered.

36. REGIONAL STUDY OF BUS SERVICE - POTENTIAL NEW ROUTE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that the Burke Centre Virginia Railway Express (VRE) parking lot is the most heavily used commuter rail lot in Fairfax County.

Supervisor Bulova suggested that a new or adjusted existing bus route could begin at the Burke VRE lot; travel north on Roberts Road or Roberts Road to Sideburn Road to George Mason University; proceed on Route 123, then Route 236 through the City of Fairfax, past the Courthouse and the Massey Building; continue on Route 236 to Route 50 past Fair Oaks Mall; and culminate at the Fairfax County Government Center.

Supervisor Bulova said that staff has suggested that potential service could be provided by the Fairfax Connector, the City's CUE Bus or Metro.

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

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to identify the cost. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

37. UPDATE ON THE OMBUDSMAN FOR NON-PROFITS AND PLACES OF WORSHIP (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that last year, the Board created a new position, an ombudsman for Non-Profits and Places of Worship, in response to the faith community's problems with navigating through the zoning and site plan processes in Fairfax County. As envisioned, the ombudsman would be able to "shepherd" the application through the entire process from start to finish should the church or non-profit wish to avail itself of this service. The position was seen as part liaison for the different County or State departments and the organization, part coordinator in bringing the different parties together, part educator in explaining the process to neophyte "developers" and part advocate in trying to find reasonable solutions and compromises.

Supervisor Bulova said that last year, Saint Stephens Methodist Church, located on Braddock Road was going through the special exception amendment process. Saint Stephens agreed to be the very first church to go through the ombudsman process. She said that the special exception part went so smoothly that she assumed that everything was okay on the site plan side of the process. Recently, she learned that things had not gone as well.

Supervisor Bulova said that the architectural plans took quite awhile to get through the Fire Marshall's review. This is an area where the ombudsman could take the lead early in the process so that the non-profits would be aware up front of the various thresholds size-wise, capacity-wise, et cetera at which "higher" standards or additional requirements (and greater cost) would be triggered by the Fire Marshall's regulations and code requirements. Another example is what happens after the site plan is approved and is sent to Bonds and Agreements Section. It would be very helpful if the Ombudsman could provide a checklist for non-profits that explained the steps involved in getting through this phase of the process. Applying for the Virginia Department of Transportation Entrance Permit is another area where the ombudsman could provide information.

Supervisor Bulova noted that this fall there will be another forum to bring the non-profits and places of worship together with County staff. She added that there is a new Ombudsman, Tom Nelson.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to review the Ombudsman process in conjunction with the fall forum and report with their findings and recommendations later this year. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

38. REALLOCATION OF SECONDARY ROAD FUNDS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that when the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has to acquire right-of-way for a typical road project in Fairfax County, Secondary Road Funds are used to purchase the property. Sometimes, VDOT will purchase more right-of-way than is needed for the project. If that is the case, then at completion of the project VDOT will sell the remnant properties. Often the remnant parcels are large enough that they can be sold as individual buildable lots.

Supervisor Bulova said that she recently learned that the money that VDOT receives for the sale of these remnant lots is returned to Richmond and goes into the State's General Fund. A more reasonable and equitable use of that "found" money would be to put it back into the Secondary Road funds earmarked for the jurisdiction from which it came from.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board refer this item to the Board's Legislative Committee for consideration in the recommendations for the General Assembly's 2002 Legislative Agenda. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

A brief discussion ensued.

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

39. FISCAL YEAR (FY) CARRYOVER BUDGET CONSIDERATION ITEM FUND 308, PROJECT A0002 FUNDING FOR HOUSING FLOODING, CATEGORY 2 PROJECTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that the County Executive's Advertised Budget for FY 2002 recommended $1 million in funding for stormwater management projects, including five Category 2 projects to correct house flooding. This was one of the items that the Board removed from the budget to provide additional funding to the Schools. The Department of Public Works and Environmental Services staff was directed to try to find alternative sources for the house flooding projects. A thorough review of all projects and all sources of funding was conducted. She said that the pro rata share watershed funds cannot be moved from one watershed to be used for construction in another watershed. Therefore, a shortfall of $341,000 remains. Since the FY 2002 Advertised Budget was published, three new house flooding projects have been identified with funding needs of an additional $400,000.

Supervisor Bulova said that the first five Category 2 projects are not "nice to have" projects; they are emergency projects. The situation at Wheatfield Court is so serious that staff installed sandbags in the back yard of the residences to help keep storm water from entering the house. The Wheatfield project is in final design, easements from the four property owners are being secured, and staff will be ready to advertise this project in September if funding can be secured.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that Board direct staff to add a Consideration Item for $341,000 to be advertised as part of the FY 2001 Carryover Budget. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

40. REQUEST FOR EXPEDITED AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR THE SHENANDOAH PRIDE SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION/SITE PLAN (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that the Shenandoah Pride Dairy, located on Port Royal Road, has filed an application to amend its special exception. The proposed changes are relatively minor.

Supervisor Bulova said that to allow for the proposed changes to occur before winter arrives, Shenandoah Pride Dairy has asked that its application and modification of the existing, approved site plan be expedited and reviewed concurrently.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the:

This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards nor does it prejudice the consideration of this application in any way. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

41. INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 90-D-058 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that at the appropriate time, later in the meeting, the public hearing on Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 90-D-058 will be deferred until August 6, 2001.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting this public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#69.)

42. BICYCLE FACILITY AS PART OF THE ROUTE 28 PUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP IMPROVEMENT PROJECT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey said that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is now negotiating a contract regarding the public/private partnership to improve Route 28 as a limited access facility. To encourage non-motorized transportation in the corridor, staff has recommended that a bicycle facility be included with this improvement.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board request that as a part of the Route 28 public/private partnership improvement project VDOT include provisions for a bicycle facility as part of the design and construction for Route 28. Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

43. BRIDGE REPLACEMENT PROJECT ON HUNTER MILL ROAD OVER DIFFICULT RUN (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the bridge replacement project on Hunter Mill Road over Difficult Run is currently in the preliminary engineering phase where the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Department of Transportation (DOT), and a citizen task force has been working together to address outstanding concerns. This project is also on the Six-Year Secondary Road Program.

Supervisor Hudgins said that one outstanding concern is the desire to have a pedestrian signal installed at Hunter Mill Road and the W&OD Trail crossing in advance of the bridge replacement project. VDOT has indicated that it supports a future signal installation and concluded that installing a signal in advance of the bridge replacement project would be beneficial as long as the geometric and equipment installation is needed and kept within the bridge replacement project.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board request that:

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

44. FEDERAL CLEAN WATER ACT PERMIT PROGRAM (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Environmental Protection Agency cited six properties in Fairfax County for not complying with the federal Clean Water Act permit program. Three of the six locations are in the Hunter Mill District. She said that State and federal requirements are that developers create a pollution prevention plan at the time of a site plan submission if the project disturbs five acres or more of land. The plan must spell out how a developer will handle chemical pollutants, such as gasoline, oil, grease, and chemicals normally used during construction. The permit program is administered through the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.

Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review the current and previous policies on this matter to determine the impact of non-compliance on Fairfax County and determine if there is a more effective way under the current Policy to ensure plans are developed to protect the environment. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to determine how the regulatory process and the erosion and sediment process "fits" with this process. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

45. CHILD SEAT SAFETY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the use of the child safety seats is the most effective way to help protect children from automobile injuries. Many low-income families cannot afford new child safety seats. They use old seats that have been handed down, recalled but not repaired, or involved in crashes. Most people do not think of car seat safety as a public health issue. Despite all the information provided to the public 30 percent of children ride in motor vehicles with no restraint at all and 80 percent of car seats are used improperly.

Supervisor Hudgins said that recently, a study, "Achieving a Credible Health and Safety Approach to Increasing Seat Belt Use Among African Americans," conducted by Meharry Medical College with the support of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, revealed some disturbing information concerning African Americans and seatbelt use. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for African Americans between the ages of 0-14 and the second leading cause of death for African Americans between the ages of 15-24, only surpassed by homicides. Moreover, the minority population has a higher risk factor than other segments of the population.

Supervisor Hudgins said that based on these alarming statistics, a group of concerned citizens working in the Hunter Mill District formed a coalition, the Child Auto Safety Program Coalition (CASPC), to address this issue. The CASPC is compromised of representatives from law enforcement, health care, non-profit and early child development. The mission is to create programs and activities to increase awareness and educate the community about the problem of the high incidence of child death rate and injury due to unrestrained riding or improper use of child restraint devices. On September 8, 2001, the CASPC and the Reston District Police Station will kickoff an education and awareness program in the African American community on child safety seats at the YMCA in Reston from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Technicians will be available to check and provide car seats.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite the CASPC to appear before the Board on September 10, 2001, to be recognized for their hard work in addressing this significant issue. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

46. OVARIAN CANCER AWARENESS MONTH (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that ovarian cancer is a cancer that causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system and this type of cancer is the fifth leading cause of new cancer cases. In women ages 35-74, ovarian cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer related deaths in the US and is a serious and under-recognized threat to women's health across Fairfax County and the nation.

Supervisor Hudgins said that currently there is no screening for early detection and ovarian cancer is treatable only through early detection. Increased public awareness of this disease, its risk factors, and its subtle symptoms may save lives, as women across Fairfax County and their doctors learn to recognize the warning signs of ovarian cancer, which are often the only early indication of an illness.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board:

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

 

47. CAR-SHARING TO PROMOTE TRANSIT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said an article in the Fairfax Journal describes a new program coming to the area that is intended to promote transit. The program is car-sharing and the program that promotes the use of transit while providing the convenience of allowing riders the option of renting a vehicle to get to areas that rail does not serve.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide additional information on the car-sharing program and examine the opportunity of grants from the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation to help defray membership fees for car-sharing residents and businesses. Without objection, it was so ordered.

48. CITIZEN AWARENESS REGARDING SCAMS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that recently there has been an increase in the Northern Virginia area of scam artists targeting affluent neighborhoods and senior citizens.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to:

Following discussion, without objection, it was so ordered.

49. PEDESTRIAN ACCESS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins referred to the Transportation Safety Summit that was conducted earlier this year and she moved that the Board:

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

50. ICE CREAM SOCIAL (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins announced that on July 24, 2001, there will be an ice cream social at the Cyber Cafe at the Teen Center to support the computer lab.

51. NATIONAL NIGHT OUT (Tape 6)

On behalf of Supervisor McConnell and herself, Supervisor Gross announced that Fairfax County residents will be participating in the eighteenth annual National Night Out on August 7, 2001. She noted that Mason District is home to the Court of Camelot, which has the longest serving neighborhood watch in the nation.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board:

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

52. REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION (Tape 6)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting this item was discussed. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#15.)

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Jimmie D. Jenkins, Director, System Engineering and Monitoring Division, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to appear before the Board to be recognized for his years of service upon his retirement. Without objection, it was so ordered.

53. NO BOARD MATTERS FOR LEE DISTRICT SUPERVISOR DANA KAUFFMAN (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman announced that he had no Board Matters to present today.

 

54. FUNDING FOR PARK WATCH (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly stated that a number of years ago the County developed a program called Trail Safe that evolved into Park Safe and is now Park Watch. The program brings together citizens who are interested in contributing to enhanced safety in the trails and parks. The program is largely staffed by volunteers who report suspicious activity and unsafe conditions that require attention.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct:

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

55. HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION (HJR) COMMITTEE ACCOMPLISHES TRUE CHANGE IN TYSONS CORNER (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly reminded the Board that in 1998 the General Assembly adopted HJR 276 that established a committee to assist the Secretary of Transportation in the development of options that might result in short-term improvements affecting the Tysons Corner area.

Noting that the committee made some substantial improvements to that area, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Delegate Jim Scott and other representatives of the HJR 276 Committee to appear before the Board to be recognized for their achievements and honored for their work and dedication to making Tysons Corner a better place to work and live. Without objection, it was so ordered.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, a report of the HJR 276 Committee was addressed. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#56.)

56. SIGNAGE (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board took action to honor the accomplishments of the House Joint Resolution (HJR) 276 Committee. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#55.)

Supervisor Connolly stated that one of the issues that the HJR 276 Committee addressed was the signage on buildings in the Tysons Corner area. There is no uniform signage and it is difficult for motorists to determine the street address numbers.

With reference to the report to the HJR 276 Committees, copies of which were distributed to the Board, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to direct staff to review the report and the current sign ordinance with the view of making any appropriate changes that would allow commercial entities to improve commuter and pedestrian access to their facilities. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Discussion ensued.

57. REQUEST FOR INTERIM REPORT ON PERFORMING ARTS CENTER STUDY (Tape 7)

With reference to previous requests from several Members of the Board, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide an interim report on September 10, 2001, on the status of the study on a performing arts center for the County.

58. INTENT TO DEFER PUBLIC HEARINGS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland announced his intent to defer at the appropriate time later in the meeting the public hearing on Rezoning Application RZ 2000-MV-066 and Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 1996-MV-037-4. The Planning Commission has not completed its recommendations on the applications.

Supervisor Connolly announced his intent to defer at the appropriate time later in the meeting the public hearing on Conceptual Development Plan Amendment Application CDPA 87-P-109. The Planning Commission has not completed its recommendations on this application.

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

59. RETIREMENT OF MR. ALLEN HOGGE (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board announced another retirement. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#15.)

Supervisor Hyland announced that Allen H. Hogge, Director, Wastewater Treatment Division, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, plans to retire on August 31, 2001. Mr. Hogge managed the Lower Potomac Pollution Control Plant (now the Noman M. Cole, Jr. Plant) from 1983 through 1987, at which time he was promoted to Director. Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Hogge to appear before the Board to be recognized on August 6, 2001 (or other appropriate date) for his 26 years of outstanding service to Fairfax County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

60. OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT (Tape 7)

With reference to his written Board Matter regarding an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment, Supervisor Hyland stated that this request concerns property located just south of the Pohick Church on the east side of Richmond Highway (Route One) in Lorton, Tax Map 108-1((1)) 27A and 27B and 108-3((1))16. The comprehensive plan language for this property presently recommends residential development at a density of four to five units per acre, with a proviso that any such residential development be restricted to "housing the elderly."

In recent months, a residential builder/developer has discussed with the Federation of Lorton Communities an option that would bring a non-age restricted community to Lorton. This proposal would also incorporate a new home for the Engleside Baptist Church (owners of a portion of the property herein discussed). The proposal to remove the age restriction has been reviewed by the community and has the support of the Federation of Lorton Communities.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to initiate an Out-of-Turn Comprehensive Plan Amendment for the property described herein for the purpose of eliminating the requirement for exclusively age-restricted residential development. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

61. LETTER REGARDING LORTON (Tape 7)

Chairman Hanley made reference to a letter regarding Lorton that she received from the Chairman of the church council of Christ Church. She relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this letter to the County Attorney for review. The letter requests the inclusion of areas for churches in the Master Plan. Without objection, the request was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

62. ADULT SOFTBALL (Tape 7)
