Therefore, she relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to:

Vice-Chairman Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

31. PEARL HARBOR REMEMBRANCE DAY (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley said that the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association asked that the County follow the provisions of Public Law 103-308 and observe December 7 as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. The law urges all the United States flags to fly at half-staff in honor of the individuals who died as a result of their service at Pearl Harbor. As the nation recognizes the sixtieth anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day, she moved that the Board direct staff to:

Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and asked to amend it to include an invitation to Mr. Joseph "Gus" Gustaferro, who was a Pearl Harbor survivor and was also present at Tokyo Bay for the surrender. This was accepted.

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

32. RECOGNITION OF COUNTY EMPLOYEES FOR THEIR LIFESAVING ACTION (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley stated that during the morning of August 22, 1001, Michael Campbell, a Fastran employee, passed out in the weight room at the Government Center. Three County employees, Candy Brown, Sarah West, and Rita Kaufman, utilized the newly installed automated external defibrillator, which had been placed in service on August 3, 2001. Through their efforts, Mr. Campbell was resuscitated. To recognize their lifesaving action, she moved that the Board direct staff to invite these quick-thinking employees to appear before the Board on December 3, 2001, to receive certificates of recognition. Vice-Chairman Hyland seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley acknowledged that these employees had been recognized in a previous Board Matter presented by Supervisor Hudgins, but had not yet appeared before the Board.

The question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Chairman Hanley noted that automated external defibrillators are being installed around the Government Center.

33. OX HILL BATTLEFIELD PARK (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley stated that Mr. Ed Wentzel of the Chantilly Battlefield Association had contacted her in June regarding his concern that the Park Authority planned to spend only $50,000 for improvements to the Ox Hill Battlefield Park when Centennial Gateway Limited Partnership had specifically proffered $110,000 for that purpose. The property is at the corner of Monument Drive and West Ox Road. The Bonds and Agreements Branch of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services received the proffer of $118,360, adjusted for inflation, on December 19, 1994.

Chairman Hanley stated there has been considerable discussion between her office, Civil War enthusiasts, and Park Authority staff as to whether the implementation of the proffer is correct. She said that Paul Baldino, Executive Director, Park Authority, sent a memorandum to her that clarified the funding process that led to the misunderstanding. Separate from the proffer, the Park Authority set aside $50,000 for capital improvements in 1998. It appears that the original proffered funds were never transferred to the Park Authority.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to transfer the original $118,360 to the Park Authority with the direction that funds be used for the purpose for which they were intended and proffered to provide improvements for the park. Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor McConnell jointly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley asked to amend the motion to direct the Park Authority to develop a Master Plan for this park in consultation with the appropriate groups and this was accepted.

Chairman Hanley noted that given this misunderstanding almost seven years after the funds were made available to the County, it is more important than ever that the County have a reliable proffer tracking system.

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

34. EXPEDITING RAIL TRANSIT TO DULLES (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley stated that at the October 22, 2001, Board meeting she distributed copies of a letter from the local Congressional Delegation to Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta which expressed support for expediting rail transit to Dulles International Airport. In response, the Board approved a motion to also send a letter to Secretary Mineta supporting this effort. She noted that she had not yet received that draft letter from staff.

Chairman Hanley distributed copies of a press release from Congressman Frank Wolf’s office stating that on November 14, 2001, the full House Appropriations Committee approved language directing the Federal Transit Administration to work with the Commonwealth of Virginia and local governing bodies in the region to develop and implement a financing plan for expediting rail to Washington Dulles International Airport.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to prepare and send a letter to the Congressional Delegation under her signature supporting Congressman Wolf’s efforts to obtain federal assistance for Northern Virginia to expedite rail to Dulles. Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Hudgins jointly seconded the motion.

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

She noted that the Commonwealth Transportation Board would be conducting a public hearing on the VTDP on December 6, 2001, in Richmond.

Following discussion, with input from Mr. Chang, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff to present at the December 3, 2001, Board meeting proposed testimony for the public hearing on December 6. She noted that the testimony should include a request for the effect of revised revenue estimates and an explanation of the feasibility category.

Following a lengthy discussion, with input from Mr. Chang, Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Supervisor Frey said that the Upper Occoquan Sewage Authority (UOSA) has submitted a special exception application to permit capacity improvements to the Cub Run Pump Station to accommodate rapidly increasing flows from development in the Cub Run watershed. To address these improvements as soon as possible, UOSA has requested that the Board schedule a public hearing and that the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) concurrently process the special exception application with the site plans. Staff has reviewed the application and it is in harmony with the Comprehensive Plan.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board:

The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

43. CLUSTER DEVELOPMENT – STANLEY-MARTIN HOMEBUILDING, LLC (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey said that Mount Gilead and the surrounding area are historically significant in Centreville. Stanley-Martin Homebuilding has applied for a rezoning to permit a cluster development of 47 homes in this area. The property is adjacent to the historic Saint John's Episcopal Church, and there are rare Civil War embankments preserved on the property. The applicant has worked closely with staff on the design features of the project, as well as the preservation of the Civil War earthworks. The applicant has shown good faith in working hard to preserve the earthworks and to design the homes with respect paid to the historic quality of the area, especially as part of the property lies within the Centreville Historic District. To accommodate changes in the design to ensure preservation of the earthworks, the applicant agreed to defer the Planning Commission public hearing date until December.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board authorize the scheduling of the public hearing to be held before the Board for the first Board date in January 2002 regarding this project. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

44. APPOINTMENT TO THE SIGN TASK FORCE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board:

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion which FAILED by a recorded of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Hyland, and Chairman Hanley voting "AYE."

 

48. ESTABLISHMENT OF THE ANNANDALE RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD): WAIVER OF THE NUMBER OF CONTIGUOUS PARKING SPACES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that parking on residential streets in Annandale Terrace has become a problem and staff has determined that the area falls under the Code provisions for the creation of a RPPD. She said that she forwarded to the Department of Transportation (DOT) petitions for the establishment of the Annandale Terrace RPPD on the following streets:

The one criterion that is not met at this location is that the District must be a minimum size of 100 contiguous parking spaces. However, it meets the purpose and intent of the ordinance. The proposed District includes about 86 parking spaces, which is close to meeting the minimum size criterion, and has a significant parking problem. To proceed with the request, the required number of contiguous parking spaces would need to be waived by the Board.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board waive the number of spaces and direct staff to proceed as expeditiously as possible. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

49. CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITON FOR MR. JOHN CALLAGHAN (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that John Callaghan, Director of the Housing Management Division of the Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development, is retiring after 26 years of service to the County.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Callaghan to appear before the Board to be recognized for his service to the County. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Connolly being out of the room.

 

50. PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 88-C-080 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that Patton, Harris, Rust, and Associates have filed a proffered condition amendment on behalf of the Fairfax County Park Authority to amend the proffers and the approved generalized development plan to reflect public park development instead of single family residential at Stratton Woods in Reston. Stratton Woods Park has been approved through the 2232 Process and the Fairfax County Park Authority Master Plan process to achieve community consensus.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff in the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to review and process the site and building plans for Tax Map 25-2((1)) 4, 5, 6, and 7 concurrently with the review of Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 88-C-080. 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. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

51. STORM DRAINS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the November 2001 Vienna Newsletter published an article titled "Storm Drains Aren't Trash Cans." It highlighted the fact that storm drains do not lead to wastewater treatment facilities, but into local streams and eventually into the Chesapeake Bay. Often times, this misconception leads individuals to place in storm drains items such as antifreeze, motor oil, paint, and animal and yard waste. With fall comes the fall of leaves and often lawn services personnel mistake storm drainage areas as a place for disposing of leaf waste.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to publish the article to raise Fairfax County's residents and lawn service companies awareness of protecting the Chesapeake Bay and understanding that storm drains are designed for water runoff only. Without objection, it was so ordered.

52. REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION OF MS. MARY ANN GATTON (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Greater Washington Reading Council has named Mary Anne Gatton the Reading Teacher of the Year for the Washington Metropolitan Area. Ms. Gatton has been a reading teacher at Floris Elementary School for four years. Her service to the students of Floris Elementary School has been invaluable and this award only serves to reiterate that fact.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Gatton to appear before the Board to be recognized for her outstanding accomplishment as Reading Teacher of the Year. Without objection, it was so ordered.

53. REQUEST FOR PROCLAMATION FOR THE GREATER RESTON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE (GRCC) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the GRCC is an integral part of the Hunter Mill District community that not only promotes and is an advocate for businesses, but also has been a leader in the community.

Supervisor Hudgins noted that January 2002 begins the twentieth year of what began as the Reston Board of Commerce. Since that time GRCC has grown to be the business voice for the second largest concentration of business in Virginia, with more than 1,100 corporate members, a 34 member Board of Directors and a staff of six. GRCC is a volunteer driven organization. In addition, GRCC has been a partner in promoting pride in the community through its support of Reston Interfaith and hosting a variety of community programs such as Ethics Day and Expo 2001.

Additionally, December 200l, marks the two-year anniversary of GRCC's Incubator Program. The Incubator Program is designed to provide small and relatively new companies with the basic business support that they need; including office space, business connections and mentoring to grow their business. After two years, the program has had 17 successful companies creating 35 Fairfax County jobs.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite the GRCC to appear before the Board on December 3, 2001, to receive a proclamation celebrating its twentieth anniversary, two year Incubator Program anniversary, and the contributions made to the Hunter Mill District and Fairfax County. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Connolly being out of the room.

54. ROLLING WOODS, LLC AND BROOKFIELD WASHINGTON, INCORPORATED (Tape 6)

Supervisor McConnell said that Rolling Woods LLC and Brookfield Washington, Incorporated are the contract purchasers of 7.37 acres of land located in the northwest quadrant of the intersection of Hunter Village Drive and Gerardia Court and identified as tax map 89-4((1))21 and 22D. They have filed a Proffered Condition Amendment Application/Final Development Plan Amendment Application PCA C-402-8/FDPA C-402-6 to change the approved use from a medical care facility to housing for the elderly. The applicants proposed to develop this parcel into four residential buildings containing 87 dwelling units.

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to process the site plan and building plans for this housing project concurrently with the processing of Proffered Condition Amendment Application/Final Development Plan Amendment Application PCA C-402-8/FDPA C-402-6). This motion does not relieve the applicants from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of this application in any way. The applicant acknowledges that pursuit of concurrent processing shall be at the applicant's own risk. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Connolly being out of the room.

55. SENIORS ON THE GO (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross expressed appreciation to staff for providing an electronic link to the "Seniors on the Go" from the Area Agency on Aging’s website. She had raised this issue on September 10, 2001.

56. PERSONAL PROPERTY TAXES (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross said that a senior citizen who recently tried to pay her personal property tax at the kiosk at the Mason District Governmental Center, finally realized that even if her taxes were paid, she couldn't obtain her County decal in time to avoid the enforcement deadline. She concluded that the only way to obtain a decal immediately was to pay her tax at the County Government Center.

Supervisor Gross noted that what caused the confusion was a yellow insert that accompanied the notice from the Department of Tax Administration. The insert provides payment alternatives, but nowhere does it indicate that the only way to obtain the decal immediately is to pay at the County Government Center in Fairfax. She said that future mailings and other informational material should make clear that the only way to obtain a decal immediately is to pay your personal property tax in person at the Fairfax County Government Center located at 12000 Government Center Parkway.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Tax Administration to clarify this information when the next personal property tax bills are mailed. Without objection, it was so ordered.

57. COX COMMUNICATIONS CABLE TELEVISION SERVICE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross called the Board’s attention to her written Board Matter regarding Cox Cable as well as a memorandum from Ron Mallard, Director, Department of Cable Communications and Consumer Protection regarding cable television complaints that was distributed earlier in the day in response to a request from Supervisor Connolly. She said that the long-promised Cox Revolution has gone sadly awry. What Cox's top management promised as a smooth and seamless transition from Media General to a superior quality digital signal turned out to be a series of nightmares. Residents are experiencing great difficulties in obtaining cable services they are paying for. Customer service can be confused, inept, and unresponsive. Technicians are not well trained. As Cox's rates increase, so do complaints. Constituents are frustrated and angry and hold the Board responsible for the failure of the Cox leadership to provide reliable cable service with adequate customer support.

Supervisor Gross said that the Cox Revolution has been in progress for many months now, but there is no end in sight for consumer problems and constituent complaints. When Cox officials first came before the Board, they made many promises, assuring the Board that it was a responsive company and that customer service was paramount. She asserted that they went back to Atlanta assuming that Fairfax County residents would not notice that service was degrading while costs went up.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board issue an invitation to the Cox Communications leaders from Atlanta who appeared before this Board in July 1999 to appear before it again and present Cox's plans to address these customer and constituent concerns. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input form Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide information as to whether the statistics provided in the attachment to Mr. Mallard’s memorandum included an unduplicated count of complaints. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hyland.

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

58. "TELECOMMUNITY" ALLIANCE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly called the Board attention to his written Board Matter regarding local governments’ interest in the development of competitive telecommunications services. He said that the TeleCommUnity Alliance, a non-profit organization, has recently been established by several local governments and national organizations to provide lobbying on Capitol Hill on telecommunication issues. Montgomery County, Maryland; the National League of Cities; National Association of Counties; and the US Conference of Mayors; and a number of others have indicated their interest in becoming members of the TeleCommUnity Alliance. These national associations have expressed the urgent need to have a stronger voice in Congress dealing with the specific subjects related to telecommunications. Although they participate in a limited manner on some telecom legislation, they recognize their inability to have a significant influence on the outcome of most telecom legislation that affects local governments.

Supervisor Connolly said that Fairfax County should become an active member of the TeleCommUnity Alliance, especially in view of local problems with telecom services, as well as the County’s close proximity to Capital Hill. Membership in the Alliance is $.05 per capita per year (or approximately $48,000 for Fairfax County). This amount is available in the County's Cable franchise special fund and can be used for membership with no impact on the General Fund. Additionally, this does not need to be a recurring expense to the County; the Board can choose not to belong in future years. That decision can be made each year based upon its view of the value of its investment in the Alliance and how effectively the Alliance has influenced telecommunications legislation.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to have Fairfax County become a member of TeleCommUnity Alliance and authorize an expenditure of up to $50,000 from the Cable Fund 105 for this purpose. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the following information:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following further discussion, with input form Mr. Griffin, the question was called on the motion and it CARRIED by a recorded vote of seven, Supervisor Mendelsohn voting "NAY, " Chairman Hanley and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

59. FIREFIGHTER COMBAT CHALLENGE TEAM (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly noted that in July of this year members of the Fairfax County Men's Firefighter Combat Challenge Team came before the Board to be recognized for their achievement in winning the ESPN Broadcast Firefighter Relay Competition held at Potomac Mills.

Supervisor Connolly announced that the Fairfax County Men's Firefighter Combat Challenge Team has returned from the World Championships held in Memphis in early November. It now holds the title of World Champions in the Relay Competition.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite Chief Stinnette and the members of the Men's Combat Challenge Team to appear before the Board to be recognized for this outstanding achievement. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Chairman Hanley being out of the room.

60. WILSON AVENUE ABANDONMENT PUBLIC HEARING (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that last year he worked with Winchester Homes and the Hunting Hills community to ensure that the by right development Winchester Homes was initiating in Oakton would fit into the existing community. Winchester Homes agreed to design their new subdivision so that their new roads would not connect to Bonds Ridge Court. This design choice precluded the possibility of the creation of a cut-through between Hunter Mill Road, the new development and the existing Hunting Hills Community.

Supervisor Connolly said that as a result of the adoption of this plan a portion of the right-of-way that would have been used to connect the new subdivision is no longer needed. Winchester Homes has requested that the Board abandon and convey a small portion of Wilson Avenue so that Winchester Homes can incorporate the area into their subdivision. Winchester Homes has additionally asked that they be given a Board public hearing date before February of 2002.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board:

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

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

62. PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, CHAPTER 112 (ZONING ORDINANCE), REGARDING THE ELDERLY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that he has recently been contacted regarding the Zoning Ordinance that allows a special exception for housing for the elderly and provides density incentives for developers who provide housing for the elderly. The Fairfax County Zoning Ordinance defines housing for the elderly as housing for persons who are 62 years of age or older and couples where either the husband or the wife is 62 years of age or over. Of the jurisdictions within the Northern Virginia area, Fairfax County is the only jurisdiction that sets the age for elderly housing at 62 years. Loudoun County, Prince William County, and the City of Alexandria elderly housing is set at 55 years. The federal definition for senior housing sets the minimum age at 55 years.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct:

Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Connolly changed his motion to a unanimous consent request to place this item on the agenda for consideration at the February meeting of the Development Process Committee. Without objection, it was so ordered.

63. APPROVAL OF LETTER FROM THE BOARD TO THE CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly referred to a draft letter from the Board to the members of the Virginia's Congressional delegation endorsing S. 940, and H.R. 1990, An Act To Leave No Child Behind. The legislation was reviewed by the Board's Legislative Committee on September 28, 2001, and the Committee recommended Board support.

65. CROSSROADS PROGRAM CELEBRATES THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman announced that the Crossroads program recently celebrated its thirtieth anniversary of providing services to Fairfax County residents who are struggling to break free of various forms of substance abuse. Crossroads House, the first residential drug abuse program in the County, opened its doors in March 1971. Today it has programs for both adults and youth. Residents who graduate from these programs obtain the needed skills and strategies to remain abstinent from drug and alcohol.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to invite Steve Grossman, Director of Adult Services for Crossroads, and other Crossroads staff to appear before the Board to be recognized for their efforts. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

66. MEMORIAL GARDEN (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman said that many individuals and organizations have been moved to action by the recent terrorist attacks on the nation. In Lee District Lynn Hiltajczuk, who lives in the Greater Wilton Woods neighborhood, has taken the initiative to create a memorial garden to honor the innocent victims of the terrorist attacks, their families, and all others affected by these events. The garden will be located on Ivanhoe Lane and will be a park-like setting that will serve as a memorial and as a refuge for those seeking a quiet moment for reflection. He asserted that there is great community support for this endeavor from local residents and businesses.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct the staff of the Office of Public Affairs to invite Ms. Hiltajczuk and other members of the community to appear before the Board at a future meeting for formal recognition. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

67. CONGRATULATIONS TO WOODLEY HILLS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland stated that recently The Washington Post carried news that Woodley Hills Elementary School had been selected as one of eight 2001 National Schools of Character which recognizes the school’s work to encourage the social, ethical, and academic development of its students through character education. National Schools of Character is an annual program that recognizes schools demonstrating outstanding character-education initiatives that produce positive results in student behavior, the school environment and academic performance.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms.Vesilind, principal of Woodley Hills Elementary School, and members of her staff responsible for winning the award to appear before the Board for recognition of their significant accomplishments. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

It was brought to his attention that governing bodies of other jurisdictions wish to follow Fairfax County’s lead in this matter and the formal resolution will help them in this effort.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board adopt the referenced Resolution for the Chairman’s signature and direct staff to send this Resolution to the Northern Virginia Congressional Delegation and the National Park Service. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Following a brief discussion, the question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor Mendelsohn, and Chairman Hanley voting "AYE," Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

The application had been delayed along the way, but is now scheduled for a public hearing before the Planning Commission on January 10, 2002.

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to schedule the public hearing for Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 91-L-016-2 to be held before the Board on January 28, 2002.

71. Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that during the July 23, 2001, meeting, the Board unanimously passed a motion by Chairman Hanley which included the development of a vehicle plan to establish the minimum number of Sport-Utility Vehicles required by County operations. This motion was made because, by 2005, this region may be out of compliance with the clean air plan adopted by the Transportation Planning Board.

Supervisor Hyland said that recent advances made by the automobile industry have made possible several Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (SULEVs). Two of these SULEVs are the Honda Insight and the Toyota Prius. These vehicles utilize a hybrid gasoline/electric system which does not require special fuels nor fueling facilities.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to examine the purchase of this type of hybrid vehicle as replacements are made in the County fleet. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

There was a brief discussion regarding the fact that these hybrid vehicles can be driven on High Occupancy Vehicles (HOV) lanes with a single occupant.

72. MOTION TO DECLINE OFFER OF DEDICATION OF COMMON OPEN SPACE IN WORTHINGTON WOODS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter regarding a motion to decline an offer of common open space in the amount of 2,629 square feet. Beazer Homes, the developer of Section Three of Worthington Woods, proposes a resubdivision of that section that would delete a portion of the common open space shown on the current recorded plat and convert it into two additional lots. Staff has reviewed the property and determined that the County does not want the land that would be proffered.

Supervisor Hyland said that since this common open space is of no real value to the County, he moved that the Board, pursuant to Section 2-702(4) of the Zoning Ordinance, decline the offer of dedication of the 2,629 square feet of common open space as more particularly described in the Resubdivision Plat as presented to the Board. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.
