31. RELIEF FOR SOME UNEMPLOYED INDIVIDUALS (Tape 6)

Noting that there are a number of layoffs and reservists being called up, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to determine if there are any funds that may be used to match-up some of the unemployed individuals to back-fill for the reservists. Without objection, it was so ordered.

32. MENTORING PROGRAM (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that research has shown that the introduction of a mentor can have a powerful impact on the emotional and educational development of children and teenagers. Mentors can assist in preventing drug abuse and youth violence while greatly enhancing the young person's prospects for leading a fulfilling and productive life. The challenge has always been to recruit large numbers of mentors.

Currently in Fairfax County, more than 700 children are on the waiting list for mentors through local programs. In addition, thousands more children could benefit from a mentoring relationship if only there were enough caring adults to volunteer their time. The Fairfax Mentoring Partnership, an initiative of the Fairfax Partnership for Youth, works closely with all the mentoring programs in the County, educating and recruiting mentors for these children.

During the recent events that have taken place in the country, Supervisor Mendelsohn said that there seems to be a renewed feeling of reaching out, especially to children. He referred to a mentoring program that was adopted by the state of Florida and allows government employees up to one hour of administrative leave per week to participate in established mentoring programs.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board:

Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Kauffman being out of the room, Supervisor Frey being absent.

  1. TEEN CENTERS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that based on an earlier request from this Board, the Fairfax County Department of Community and Recreation Services (CRS) has been reviewing the Teen Center structure to include regionalizing services. This past summer, CRS piloted a program using the Herndon Resource Center for afternoon programs and the Reston Teen Center for evening programs. Teens from within the region were encouraged to participate in both programs. The opportunity to provide afternoon summer programming was a new initiative for teen centers and produced very positive results. The afternoon program, which included transportation to and from the center, averaged 20 middle school youth per day from the Herndon and Reston area.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to explore the idea of regionalizing CRS Teen Center services on a permanent basis and to present an implementation plan to the Board as soon as possible. Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion.

Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the motion to direct the County Executive to report with an evaluation of and a plan to redress the lack of equalization of services, and this was accepted.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being absent.

34. RETT SYNDROME (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim October as "Rett Syndrome Month" in Fairfax County.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the request that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to publish information about Rett Syndrome. Without objection, the request as amended, was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

 

35. SAFETY HELMET AWARENESS DAY (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly said that this past Saturday, the Fairfax County Police Department, in conjunction with the INOVA Regional Trauma Center of INOVA Fairfax Hospital/INOVA Fairfax Hospital for Children, hosted the second annual mountain bike competition at Lake Accotink Park in the Springfield District. Proceeds from this event benefit the pediatric head trauma unit at the INOVA Fairfax Hospital for Children. Law enforcement officers from throughout the region competed in a five-mile course, an obstacle course, and a bike toss.

Supervisor Connolly said that Supervisor McConnell joins him in suggesting that this worthwhile event be expanded. He said that they propose an effort to encourage all children to wear safety helmets to prevent head injury while riding bicycles, scooters, or roller-blades.

Therefore Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Police Department to declare a springtime Saturday as Safety Helmet Awareness Day. He encouraged INOVA Fairfax Hospital and INOVA Fairfax Hospital for Children as well as sports stores and manufacturers to join this effort as the Police Department and especially the bicycle officers reach out to children and parents throughout Fairfax County. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

Supervisor Bulova asked to amend the motion to incorporate this "day" into future bike competitions held by the Police Department, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Frey being absent.

36. DISABILITY AWARENESS (Tape 6)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, during presentations, there was discussion of this issue. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#7.)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Board issued a proclamation declaring October as "Disability Employment Awareness Month" in Fairfax County. He said that he has noticed an increasing frequency of drivers ignoring signs reserving parking spaces for the handicapped. He said that he has personally confronted drivers and found that they were not unaware that they had occupied a space reserved for the handicapped.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive and the Police Department to determine how public awareness could be raised and develop an intensive campaign to cite the violators. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Frey being absent.

 

37. PROVIDENCE DISTRICT VOLUNTEERFEST PROJECT TO SEND "WE SUPPORT YOU" PACKAGES TO TROOPS DEPLOYED IN ANTI-TERRORISM EFFORT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly noted that Providence District has long set the tone for a good-natured competition during the County's annual VolunteerFest Day. He said that Providence District has the longest standing VolunteerFest Committee made up of citizens, business groups, faith communities, civic associations, and Fairfax County employees.

Supervisor Connolly said that after much discussion the committee decided on a project that it hopes will give everyone the opportunity to come together in support of the effort to combat terrorism. He said that he is working with Providence District schools, businesses, faith communities, and civic groups, to plan a gathering on Saturday, October 27, VolunteerFest Day, where they will be putting together "We Support You" packages for military troops who are being deployed to answer the terrorist acts of September 11. They are collecting paperback books, cards, games, powdered drinks, candy, toiletries, and most importantly, personal letters and drawings from the school children and other citizens.

Supervisor Connolly said he hopes Board Members will join Providence District in this or similar efforts on October 27 and turn the friendly competition into a significant, healing effort for the community. He invited all to join in this project and said that he would be glad to share information on the organizing effort with all that are interested. He added that he will be announcing the names of businesses and other participating groups, as well as further details about location and time, as they develop.

  1. THISTLE LANE (Tape 6)

(A) Supervisor Connolly said that on August 6, 2001, the Board adopted an Order abandoning a portion of Thistle Lane that consists of 1,385 square feet. With the abandonment, the County continues owning the underlying land area.

Winchester Homes, Incorporated, has requested the conveyance of the abandoned portion of Thistle Lane to incorporate the area for the construction of townhouse sites and has agreed to pay the County $11,080. This amount is the fair market value of the land as determined by an independent expert real estate appraiser.

In accordance with Board Policy and Section 15.2-1800 of the Code of Virginia, a public hearing is required prior to the sale of County-owned property.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the advertisement of a public hearing to be held before the Board on October 22, 2001, at 4 p.m. regarding the proposed conveyance of the abandoned portion of Thistle Lane. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Frey being absent.

The deferral will allow this nomination to be considered with the 12 APR nominations deferred on August 6, 2001, in the Providence District.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct the Planning Commission to defer APR Number 01-II-I7V and include this nomination with the Providence District Tysons Corner nominations which were deferred until the completion and issuance of the Environmental Impact Statement and the National Environmental Policy Act report. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Frey being absent.

46. CAR WASHES RAISE MONEY FOR THE RED CROSS RELIEF EFFORT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that Fairfax County residents have responded to the terrorist attack on America in a variety of ways - giving blood, volunteering to help rescue crews, and writing checks to the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and other service organizations. For one family, however, the urge to do something goes well beyond the usual. The Welch sisters were told they were too young to give blood, so they decided to find another way to help. The weekend after the September 11 attacks, Ashley (15), Aubrey (15), Alana (14), and Alyssa Welch (10) set up special car washes in Mason District to raise money for the Red Cross relief effort. That first weekend they raised more than $10,000.

On this past Saturday, the Welch sisters again spearheaded a series of car washes, now dubbed "Wash America: To Wash Away the Hurt." They enlisted the help of their classmates and teachers at Annandale High School and Parklawn Elementary School. A simple effort by children to do something to help caught the fancy of the nation and car washes are being held across the country. The girls have been asked to appear on the "Today" show, "Good Morning America," and the "Oprah" show to talk about their effort.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that certificates of recognition be presented to the Welch sisters and their parents, Lieutenant Colonel Tracy Welch and Cherrie Welch, at a future Board meeting. It also would be appropriate to invite a representative of the American Red Cross and the school system to participate in the presentation. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Frey being absent.

47. TWENTY-SECOND ANNUAL MASON DISTRICT PARK FESTIVAL (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that the twenty-second annual Mason District Park Festival will be held this Saturday, September 29, 2001, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Mason District Park on Columbia Pike in Annandale.

Other festival activities scheduled are demonstrations by the police and fire departments, food, crafters, and children's rides, admission to the festival is free.

Supervisor Gross invited everyone to come to Mason District Park on Saturday and enjoy the dynamic and diverse community festival. Raindate is Sunday, September 30, same hours.

48. ACTIVATION OF RESERVISTS (Tape6)

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to report at the Board meeting scheduled for October 1, 2001, with recommendations regarding authorizations for the County Executive to take regarding activation of reservist’s when the Board is not meeting. Without objection, it was so ordered.

49. BURKE FIRE STATION (Tape 6)

Supervisor McConnell said that in 1999 the Board approved a cooperative agreement with the Burke Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department to replace the Burke Fire Station. Construction of that station is nearing completion, but there have been construction delays that have adversely affected the volunteers’ ability to reimburse the County in accordance with the original agreement. The County and the volunteers have been working on a proposal to amend the original agreement that would address the current financial problem of the volunteers.

Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a consideration item for the Board meeting scheduled for October 1, 2001. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Kauffman and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Frey being absent.

50. TRANSPORTATION AND EDUCATION REFERENDUM (Tape 6)

Supervisor McConnell noted that last year she proposed a transportation and education referendum. This referendum would have allowed the citizens of the County to make the decision on whether to increase the sales tax in Fairfax County by one cent, with one-half of the proceeds to be used for targeted local transportation projects vital to relieve traffic congestion and the other half to be used for critical capital improvements for the Fairfax County School System. Unfortunately, the proposal did not pass; nonetheless she is once again seeking the public support for the referendum. During its meeting of September 19, 2001, the Economic Advisory Commission overwhelmingly voted to urge the Board to support this referendum.

 

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board vote to support this vital measure. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room, Supervisor Frey being absent.
