Chairman Hanley called the Board’s attention to a letter and resolution from the League of Women Voters of the Fairfax Area asking the Board to support federal legislation that would end the grandfathering of coal-fired power plants from the new plant emission standards of the Clean Air Act. She also referred to a copy of a letter from the Fairfax County Federation of Citizens Associations to Congressman Wolf also in support of ending the grandfathering of coal-fired plants. Accordingly, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board refer this request to the Legislative Committee for review. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Discussion continued briefly.

54. LEGISLATION ENTITLED "THE ACT TO LEAVE NO CHILD BEHIND" (Tape 10)

Chairman Hanley called the Board’s attention to a letter from the Fairfax County Alliance for Human Services requesting the Board to support federal legislation entitled "The Act to Leave No Child Behind."

57. CONCURRENT REVIEW AND PROCESSING OF PLANS WITH SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 82-C-063-03 (Tape 11)

Supervisor Hudgins said that AAL Partnership has filed a special exception amendment application to permit building additions for HBL, Incorporated located at 8545 Leesburg Pike, Vienna. HBL, Incorporated intends to increase the parking on the site by adding one additional level to the existing parking structure and increase the number of service bays by adding one floor above the existing service area.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to review and process the site and buildings plans for Tax Map 029-3((1))0001-D concurrent with the review of Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 82-C-063-03. This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable standards and does not prejudice the consideration of this application in any way.

58. WAIVER OF FEES APPLICABLE TO NORTHSIDE PARK TRAIL AND BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION PROJECT (Tape 11)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Town of Vienna Parks and Recreation Department is preparing to issue a contract for the construction of a pedestrian/bicycle trail through Northside Park to connect with the Washington and Old Dominion (W&OD) Trail in the northeast quadrant of the town. In addition to 1200 feet of paved trail, this project includes the construction of a 120 foot long bridge across Piney Branch and approximately a 400-foot of retaining wall. The building permit and subsequent inspections by the County will cost approximately $2000. The Town is requesting a waiver of all County building and inspection fees applicable to the Northside Park Trail and Bridge Construction Project.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board waive all County building and inspection fees for the Town of Vienna applicable to the Northside Park Trail and Bridge Construction Project. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Following input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out the room.

59. RECOGNITION OF THOSE INVOLVED IN THE HEROIC EFFORTS TO ASSIST A COUNTY EMPLOYEE WHO COLLAPSED (Tape 11)

Supervisor Hudgins said that earlier this month a County employee collapsed at the County’s fitness center. Due to the lifesaving efforts of County staff, the employee regained a pulse and blood pressure and began breathing. This allowed for a safe journey to the hospital.

Supervisor Hudgins noted that in particular, she would like to recognize Ms. Rita Kaufman, a Reston resident, who was one of the several people who helped the unconscious employee regain consciousness. Ms. Kaufman is one of a few presently trained to use the automated external defibrillator, which was used to restore a normal heartbeat to the unconscious employee.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to send a letter of recognition to Ms. Kaufman and those who were involved in the heroic efforts to assist the employee. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

60. VIENNA AMERICAN LITTLE LEAGUE ALL STARS (Tape 11)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Vienna American Little League All Stars participated in the Southeast Regional Little League Tournament in Saint Petersburg, Florida. This is the first time since 1983 that a team from Vienna has progressed this far in little league tournament play.

Supervisor Hudgins said that the citizens of the Hunter Mill District are very proud of this outstanding achievement.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite the Vienna American Little League All Stars to appear before the Board to be recognized and congratulated for their outstanding achievements. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

61. US TEAM WINS FIFTH BIENNIAL INTERNATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC OLYMPIAD (Tape 11)

Supervisor Hudgins said that Steven Young, a sophomore at Thomas Jefferson High School is one of the best geography students in the world. In April 2000, the Board recognized Mr. Young for winning the Virginia Geography Bee. This year Mr. Young was part of a four-member US team that won the fifth biennial International Geographic Olympiad sponsored by the National Geographic Society at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.  

Mr. Young’s team emerged as champion, winning the gold.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to send a letter congratulating Mr. Young for his outstanding accomplishment in the International Geography Olympiad. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

62. RESTON MULTI-CULTURAL FESTIVAL (Tape 11)

Supervisor Hudgins announced that the Reston Multi-Cultural Festival will be held on September 22, 2001, at the Lake Anne Plaza from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. She invited all to come and enjoy!

 

63. WAIVER OF SHOWMOBILE FEES (Tape 11)

Supervisor Gross said that on Saturday, September 29, 2001, the twenty-second annual Mason District Park Festival will be held at Mason District Park. She invited and encouraged Board Members to stop by anytime from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. to enjoy the festivities.

Supervisor Gross said that one of the most popular parts of the festival is live entertainment on the showmobile stage.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board waive the showmobile fee for this event subject to the restrictions governing such waivers. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

64. "SENIORS ON THE GO" PILOT PROGRAM (Tape 11)

Supervisor Gross said that it has come to her attention through a constituent that the "Seniors on the Go" pilot program has no direct electronic link from the Area Agency on Aging web site. "Seniors on the Go" is a wonderful opportunity for qualifying seniors to purchase cost-cutting coupons to defray their local travel (i.e., cab rides to doctor appointments). Currently, the only way to access this site is through the Department of Transportation web site.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the County Executive to ensure that a link from the Area Agency on Aging web site is established directly to the "Seniors on the Go" Program. Information pamphlets on this program should also be distributed to all public libraries. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

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

65. CABLE NETWORKS (Tape 11)

Supervisor Gross said there have been a plethora of citizen complaints about Cox Communications. She added that when Congress deregulated the cable industry, it assumed that competition would flourish.

Supervisor Gross pointed out that even with the amended Cable Ordinance the Board adopted to encourage a competitor to come into the Fairfax County market, entry by a competitor is not imminent. A recent Wall Street Journal article told the story of some localities that started their own cable systems, in competition with the franchised providers.

Supervisor Gross said that such municipal networks now exist in Tacoma, Washington; Gainesville, Florida; and Alameda, California, among several others.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to investigate the experiences of municipalities across the country that have started or approved their own cable networks, review the takeover of cable activities, and report its findings to the Board within 120 days. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report with the legislative history. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to include review of federal law. Without objection, it was so ordered.

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

There was a brief discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive.

66. EXPANSION OF THE ANNANDALE RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) – WAIVER OF THE FILING FEES (Tape 11)

Supervisor Bulova said that she has forwarded to the Department of Transportation (DOT) a petition for the expansion of the Annandale RPPD on Arlen Street from Manion Street to the cul-de-sac.

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 Frey seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

67. REAPPORTIONMENT MAPS (Tape 11)

Supervisor Bulova said that on June 11, 2001, the Board adopted a Reapportionment Plan for the County. Board Members who have lost or gained precincts have sent letters of welcome or farewell. In the letter she sent to her new constituents, she referred them to her web page to be kept up-to-date on events and activities in the Braddock District, and to acquaint them with her staff. At the time, her office was told that district maps reflecting changes to district boundaries were being prepared.

Supervisor Bulova noted that it is now September 10 and as of last Friday, someone visiting the County's web page and the district homepages would still find the pre-reapportionment maps. It is a sign of confusion and that the County data is not current with recent events.

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to make changes as soon as possible to all district maps and make sure that the County and District websites are current. Without objection, it was so ordered.

68. LORD OF LIFE LUTHERAN CHURCH VOLUNTEERS HELPING TO REBUILD BOSNIA (Tape 11)

Supervisor Bulova said that the August 9 – 15, 2001, edition of The Connection newspapers ran an article about 30 local volunteers - ten teens age 16 to 19 and 20 adults - who spent part of their summer rebuilding a youth center in Bosnia. According to volunteer Chris Knodt, the purpose of the trip was to meet children of Bosnia and Croatia, "to tell them you still care about them in America, and to repair all the damage." The trip lasted from June 27 - July 13, 2001. Some of the volunteers were members of the Lord of Life Lutheran Church located on Twinbrook Road in Fairfax.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to invite Chris Knodt and members of Lord of Life, including Pastor Ron Qualley, to appear before the Board to be thanked and recognized for their impressive goodwill effort. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

69. EQUITY IN WARNINGS AND WATCHES (Tape 11)

Supervisor Connolly said that heavy, and at times torrential, rains took a toll on many residents. Basements were flooded, traffic was disrupted by standing water, drivers required rescue from stranded vehicles and traffic signs failed to function.

Supervisor Connolly said that in the past, prior to the most recent upgrade of service by Cox Communications, Fairfax residents were able to access a 24-hour radar scan of the area. This allowed Fairfax citizens to make informed decisions on the precautions they needed to take in advance of arriving weather patterns. Coupled with the 24-hour weather scan were warnings and watches from the National Weather Service.

Supervisor Connolly noted that when Cox put through its digital upgrade, Cox chose to relocate this most basic of services to the upper brackets so only subscribers paying top dollar will receive much needed, timely warnings of impending bad weather.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to enter into immediate discussions with Cox Communications to attempt to secure 24-hour radar information for all Cox subscribers as well as by the Fairfax County Departments of Police, Fire and Rescue, Public Works and Environmental Services, and Emergency Management. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

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

70. HOARDING TASK FORCE REPORT (Tape 11)

Supervisor Connolly said that recent press coverage of a severe hoarding case in the Providence District has brought this unfortunate condition into the public eye. Also, about 18 months ago, a Hoarding Task Force was created for the County, with representatives from the many County departments that would routinely get involved with and have responsibility for hoarding cases. The County Attorney’s Office, Health Department, Office of the Fire Marshal are examples of involved agencies.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to prepare a report on the activities and findings of the Task Force to be presented to the Board at its December 3, 2001, meeting. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report with a landscape description of how other jurisdictions are addressing this issue or identifying it. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

A brief discussion ensued.

77. TIMING OF YELLOW LIGHTS (Tape 12)

Supervisor Mendelsohn stated that he had received a number of letters from constituents regarding the red light camera issue. He said that there seems to be some growing data that if the yellow light time is increased by even a fraction of a second then the number of red light violations decreases drastically. Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review this issue in consultation with the Virginia Department of Transportation to determine whether this is a better alternative to cameras or should it be implemented in addition to cameras.

Following discussion, without objection, the request was so ordered.

Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to prepare a resolution celebrating the 25 years of commitment and dedication of the hospital staff, physicians, volunteers and local community to be presented to the hospital at this event. Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor Kauffman will present the resolution to the hospital on September 21, 2001. Without objection, it was so ordered.

80. REQUEST TO MODIFY FEE FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A RESTRICTED PARKING DISTRICT (RPD) (Tape 12)

Supervisor Kauffman reminded the Board that a public hearing is scheduled for October 22, 2001, to establish a RPD prohibiting parking of boats and camping trailers for the Manchester Park and Manchester Lakes Master Homeowner’s Associations. Technically, a $10 application fee is collected for each signature of support. However, due to the density of townhouses in these two associations, fees far in excess of the actual cost to the County for the planning and engineering of the RPD, including installation of approximately 43 signs, would be collected. Staff estimates the total cost to be $3,355.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board modify the fee for the establishment of this RPD to a total application fee of $3,355. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Director of Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to accept for review and concurrent processing, the site plans associated with Special Exception Application SE 01-Y-026. The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the application. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to concurrently process the site plans associated with the above-referenced zoning applications. The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

They also propose a reconfiguration of the approved development and a redesign of the stormwater management facilities. The development plan illustrates two buildings instead of three.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to concurrently process site plans associated with Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 79-S-119-3.
