The National Capital Chapter of the American Red Cross has requested that Fairfax County recognize its 97 years of service and commitment to the community. Therefore, she relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to:

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

27. NATIONAL CHILDREN’S DENTAL HEALTH MONTH (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley stated that Fairfax County has been asked to join the American Dental Association in recognizing the month of February as National Children’s Dental Health Month. The Health Department indicates that Fairfax County has a large population with unmet dental health needs and wishes to encourage citizens to establish and maintain good oral hygiene. Therefore, she moved that the Board direct staff to:

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

 

28. NATIONAL AND STATE HONORS FOR THE NORTHERN VIRGINIA SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT (NVSWCD) (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley announced that at the annual meeting of Virginia’s 47 conservation districts, the NVSWCD Earth Team earned both State and national awards for its combined 3,483 volunteer hours devoted to conservation last year. The Earth Team is the volunteer arm of the US Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service. More than half of the district’s Earth Team hours came from the over 100 volunteers in the County’s stream monitoring program.

Chairman Hanley noted that other awards went to Jean Packard, former County Board Chairman and Vice Chairman of the NVSWCD Board, who was named outstanding director of the year by the Virginia Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts. Greg Evans, a member of their board and Chairman of the Potomac Watershed Roundtable, received the Watershed Connections Award. NVSWCD Association Director Dick Terwilliger received the E.C. Compton Meritorious Achievement Award in recognition of the 20 years he has dedicated to the conservation movement. This past year Mr. Terwilliger has focused his efforts on obtaining federal funds to rehabilitate Virginia’s again watershed dams.

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to prepare and send letters of congratulations and recognition to these County residents who volunteer so much of their time to improving water quality and the environment in the County and the State. Without objection, it was so ordered.

29. REDUCTION IN THE NUMBER OF SCHOOL TRAILERS (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley noted that she had read an article in the December 31, 2001, edition of the Fairfax Journal on the topic of the annual bonus for Daniel A. Domenech, School Division Superintendent. One criteria on which he was judged was the reduction of the use of temporary classrooms. A five percent target reduction was exceeded with an actual eleven percent reduction.

Chairman Hanley asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to request from the Superintendent an accounting on the reduction of the number of trailers. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Discussion continued briefly.

30. OFFENDER AID AND RESTORATION (OAR) VOLUNTEERS (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley stated that the OAR of Fairfax County requested assistance about information and training on March 9 and 16, 2002, and needs volunteers. She noted that she would provide this correspondence to the Office of Public Affairs for publicity coverage.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

31. PARKING PROBLEM BEHIND STENWOOD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AT THE KISS-AND-RIDE AREA (Tape 6)

(R) Supervisor Connolly said that he has been working with constituents to resolve a parking problem behind Stenwood Elementary School at the kiss-and-ride area that exits through Citadel Place onto Bucknell Drive. School officials are very concerned that when cars are parked on both sides of Citadel Place, access for emergency vehicles is limited and perhaps even compromised. In addition, operational problems are exacerbated during the peak morning and afternoon kiss-and-ride drop-off because it is extremely difficult for so many cars to move through so narrow a street. Attempts have been made by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to permanently 'no park' portions of the block; however, this has inconvenienced residents who park on this block, including a handicapped resident.

Supervisor Connolly said that a consensus was reached that the best solution is to 'no park' the south side of Citadel Place, between 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on school days. The County has authority to install 'no parking' signs according to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 82 (Motor Vehicles and Traffic), Section 82-5-37, paragraph 2, wherein "parking along local residential streets is so restricting the primary purpose of the road as to interfere with that purpose," in this case, the safe and efficient passage of vehicles during school hours. In addition, his staff has discussed the matter with the Police Department and they are aware of the enforcement requirements.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board adopt a Resolution establishing a time-restricted 'No Parking' area on the south side of Citadel Place, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. school days, and that staff convey the urgent nature of this request to VDOT's Permit Section so a permit can be quickly obtained and the signs installed as soon as possible. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to determine if this solution could be used near elementary schools. Without objection, it was so ordered.

The question was called on the motion and it carried by unanimous vote, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Mendelsohn, and Chairman Hanley voting "AYE."

 

32. REZONING BY CHRISTOPHER MANAGEMENT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Connolly referred to the filing of a rezoning on two existing areas of County right-of-way associated with Hideaway Road and Swanee Lane in Providence District. The rezoning in question is filed in the name of Christopher Management, Incorporated and generally involves an assemblage of land at the intersection of Nutley Street and Interstate 66.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board authorize the filing of a rezoning on those portions of Hideaway Road and Swanee Lane, as generally identified in the pending rezoning application affecting the same and filed in the name of Christopher Management, Incorporated. As is the case in matters such as this, approval of this motion shall in no way prejudice the substantive review of the pending rezoning. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

33. REQUEST FOR REPORT FROM THE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY POLICY ADVISORY COMMITTEE (ITPAC) (Tape 6)

(BACs) Supervisor Connolly stated that he recently met with Edward H. Blum, Chairman, ITPAC, and he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to encourage ITPAC to prepare a status report to the Board on various accomplishments in the County.

Following input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, without objection, it was so ordered.

34. MCLEAN PROJECT FOR THE ARTS (MPA) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that the MPA will be celebrating its fortieth anniversary on February 9, 2002. MPA is a non-profit educational organization currently located in the McLean Community Center.

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that MPA was started in 1962 by a small group of women interested in bringing exhibitions of quality art to the community.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board congratulate the MPA on its fortieth anniversary and recognize its Board and staff by providing a proclamation for presentation at its anniversary celebration on February 9, 2002. Without objection, it was so ordered.

35. WEEKLY AGENDA (Tape 6)

Supervisor Mendelsohn referred to the possible termination of the Weekly Agenda and he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report to the Board prior to its action to terminate the Weekly Agenda.

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report with options to continue publishing the Weekly Agenda. Without objection, it was so ordered.

36. STORY SWAP (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman said that former students of the Laurel Grove School and descendants of the original trustees of the Laurel Grove Church will gather for a story swap. They will tell stories of these institutions and share their memories of living in Fairfax County under segregation. He invited everyone to attend.

The event will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2002, at 10 a.m. at the Laurel Grove Baptist Church located at 6834 Beulah Street.

37. WAIVER OF FEES FOR PERMITS ASSOCIATED WITH THE FLEA MARKETS HELD BY THE SPRINGFIELD-FRANCONIA HOST LIONS CLUB CHARITIES, INCORPORATED (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman requested a waiver of the application fees for permits associated with the flea markets held by the Springfield-Franconia Host Lions Club Charities, Incorporated. The Board has approved this waiver request annually since 1994.

Supervisor Kauffman noted that the flea markets are held on alternating Saturdays from April through November. All net proceeds from the flea markets are returned to the community

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board waive the application fees for 21 day permits associated with the Springfield-Franconia Host Lions Club Charities 2002 flea markets. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hudgins being out of the room.

38. CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF THE SITE PLAN AND OTHER ENGINEERING APPROVALS ASSOCIATED WITH SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 01-L-045 (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman said that pending Special Exception Application SE 01-L-045 is a request to expand an existing telecommunications facility in Lee District and will be the subject of a public hearing before the Planning Commission on March 21, 2002. There appears to be no significant unresolved planning and zoning issues associated with the request. On that basis the applicant has requested permission to begin concurrently processing the necessary site plans.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to concurrently process the site plan and other engineering approvals associated with pending Special Exception Application SE 01-L-045. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation of this application by the Board and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hudgins being out of the room.

39. MASON DISTRICT SENIOR CITIZEN TASK FORCE REPORT (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross presented the report of the Mason District Senior Citizen Task Force, entitled "Looking Toward 2020: The Future for Senior Citizens." By 2020, the number of people older than age 65 in the region will increase by 107 percent.

Supervisor Gross noted that the report is the culmination of 18 months of work and additional copies are available through her office, as hard copies or by e-mail.

40. REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ON THE ARLINGTON GRANT PROGRAM REGARDING STREAM PROJECTS IN PARKS AND PUBLIC LANDS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that she attended the Northern Virginia Streams Confluence meeting at the Algonkian Regional Park. Nearly 200 volunteers gathered to review programs and policies regarding stream protection and restoration in Northern Virginia.

Supervisor Gross noted that in one of the panel presentations, she learned that Arlington County makes grants to civic associations and groups for stream projects in parks and public lands near their neighborhoods.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the board direct the County Executive to provide additional information about the Arlington grant program, how it works, how well it works, and how a similar grant program might be implemented in Fairfax County. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to include information regarding the cost of a similar program. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

41. OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT TO BE INCLUDED IN THE 2002 SOUTH COUNTY AREA PLANS REVIEW (APR) CYCLE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that the rules adopted by the Planning Commission for the 2002 South County APR Cycle include a prohibition on nominating property that was in an area included in a special study introduced or adopted since January 2000. Although no changes to the plan for Seven Corners Center were proposed, its location is within the Seven Corners Community Business Center, for which a special study was adopted in February 2000. As a result, in order for the shopping center to have the opportunity for consideration of a plan amendment, the Board must authorize it.

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

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

42. THIRD ANNUAL GIRL POWER CONFERENCE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross announced that the Third Annual Girl Power Conference will be held at the Baileys Community Center on Saturday, May 18, 2002.

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

Without objection, it was so ordered.

43. HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLES (HOV) LANES AND METROACCESS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that in September the Chairman wrote to the General Manager of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), Richard White, regarding the use of I-395 HOV lanes by MetroAccess vehicles. According to Mr. White, in 1998 WMATA received authorization from the Virginia General Assembly for paratransit vehicles to use the HOV lanes on I-395 during peak hours. Apparently there was, and continues to be, some confusion regarding this on the part of law enforcement personnel. Some paratransit vehicle drives are so concerned about getting tickets that they are not using this new authorization.

 

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to make sure all law enforcement officials (County police, State troopers, Sheriff's Department personnel) are aware that MetroAccess vehicles are allowed to use the HOV lanes on I-395 during rush hour. Without objection, it was so ordered.

44. CONSIDERATION ITEM - MINORITY BUSINESS START-UP ASSISTANCE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that the Census 2000 shows that nearly one in three people in Fairfax County lives in a household where a foreign language is spoken. An organization called the Business Development Assistance Group, Incorporated (BDAG), which works out of George Mason University's Enterprise Center conducts business assistance programs focusing on the language minorities. Its efforts have been successful and many immigrant-owned small businesses have been created. BDAG is a not-for-profit 501(C)(3) organization.

Supervisor Bulova noted that BDAG wishes to expand its efforts and is asking the County for assistance with a request for $100,000.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this item to:

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked to amend the request to only refer the item to the EDA for its consideration of the services offered by BDAG. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

45. BRADDOCK DISTRICT TOWN MEETING (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova announced that the Braddock District is hosting a winter town meeting on elder issues on February 6, 2002, at 2 p.m. at the Little River Glen Senior Center. The topic is "memory and mental acuity."

46. CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2001-HM-052 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins stated that Keystone, LLC has filed a rezoning application to rezone 1246 Reston Avenue, Herndon, Virginia 20170, from the R-1 District to the R-2 District. She said that the application proposes a development of three single family homes on the property for a density of 1.38 units per acre.

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 11-2 ((1)) Parcel 47A concurrent with the review of Rezoning Application RZ 2001-HM-052. She noted that 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 anyway. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

A brief discussion ensued.

47. DONATIONS OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE BOOKS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins stated that during a conversation with several members of Fairfax County’s Iranian community, it was called to her attention that there is a dearth of Farsi and Persian language books in the Fairfax County Public Library system. The constituents in question wished primarily to donate titles to the library system so that they would be available for the community’s Farsi-speaking children. In researching this issue further, she learned that the estimated cost of cataloging a single book in a foreign language other than Spanish, Vietnamese, or Korean, a process that is generally outsourced, would be $35 per item. She stated her understanding that funds are not available for cataloging should language-minority communities donate books to the library system.

Supervisor Hudgins asserted that the diversity of the County’s population and the seeming willingness of the language minorities to make donations to broaden the scope of the library services should be impetus enough to remedy this situation. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct staff to respond as to how best to raise the accessibility of the library system by including donated foreign languages titles without incurring the exorbitant costs for cataloging. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

48. UNPAID PARKING TICKETS (Tape 7)

In an effort to assist a constituent concerned with tracking unpaid parking tickets, Supervisor Hudgins said that her office learned that the County cannot track unpaid parking tickets. While she found this message disturbing, especially when there may be public safety concerns, she said that she had understood that the County did have a way to track unpaid parking tickets.

Following discussion, Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, said that he would share correspondence he has on this subject.

Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Department of Tax Administration to:

Following input from Mr. Griffin, without objection, it was so ordered.

Further discussion ensued with input from Mr. Griffin.

49. SAFETY AT LOCAL AIRPORTS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins stated that September’s terrorist attacks have led to heightened awareness and heightened security in the nation’s airports. She asserted that nowhere is this security more relevant and more necessary than in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton has suggested that priority be given to the three major airports in the area, Baltimore-Washington International, Reagan National, and Dulles International, for the installation of explosive detection systems (EDS). Though these systems will be required in all airports by January 2003, none of these three airports are currently fully equipped with EDS. In addition to the important role that Dulles and Reagan National airports play in the security of the nation’s capital, these airports are also critical to the economic viability of Fairfax County and the region.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to send a letter to the members of the Fairfax County federal delegation urging their support of the prioritization of the three Washington metropolitan airports for EDS installations. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

50. DOGWOOD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PROCLAMATION (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, Chairman Hanley announced that she and Supervisor Hudgins would be attending the 2 p.m. celebration at Dogwood Elementary School. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#10.)

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board approve a proclamation welcoming home students and staff to Dogwood Elementary School upon its reopening January 14 after a devastating fire last year. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

51. WEST SPRINGFIELD RESIDENTAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell stated that she received a petition requesting the expansion of the West Springfield RPPD Number 7, to encompass a portion of Center Road. Residents on Center Road have made this request to preserve on street parking spaces that would normally be occupied by students attending West Springfield High School. She said that she forwarded these petitions with a request that staff from the Department of Transportation study this location to determine if it meets the guidelines set forth in the County Code for the RPPD.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board waive the $10 per petition signature RPPD application fee. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

52. DIXCENGATO REZONING APPLICATIONS (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell stated that on December 3, 2001, the Board authorized the inclusion of approximately 7.73123 acres of right-of-way for portions of Ruffin Drive, Deming Drive, Dixie Hill Road, Rhett Lane, and Quality Street within the land area of the Centex Homes DixCenGato rezoning applications. Since that time, Centex has been working toward consolidating additional land area to be included in these applications. As additional land area joins the consolidation, opportunities to provide a more desirable road network are made available. To that end, Centex has requested Board authorization to include additional right-of-way within the application land area. This motion does include all of the right-of-way that has previously been authorized, as well as the proposed right-of-way for which Centex is seeking Board approval.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of 10.786 acres of right-of-way for portions of Ruffin Drive, Deming Drive, Dixie Hill Road, Rhett Lane, and Legato Road, and all of the right-of-way for Deljo Drive and Quality Street within the land area of the Centex Homes DixCenGato rezoning application. The right-of-way areas to be included are adjacent to the following Tax Map Parcels:

For clarification purposes, Supervisor McConnell noted that the applicant has requested the inclusion of the right-of-way adjacent to Tax Map Parcel 56-1-((9)) 14, although the applicant does not have Lot 14 under contract. The applicant has asked that the motion include the right-of-way in the event that a mutually-acceptable agreement with that owner can be reached and to avoid further delays in the processing of the application. The applicant has agreed to include a proffer which would prohibit use of the immediately contiguous right-of-way to Parcel 14, absent the consent of the owner of Lot 14 or further action of this Board.

Supervisor McConnell noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not predetermine or prejudice the consideration of the rezoning applications or future abandonment/vacation requests in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

53. ROUTE 123 WIDENING PROJECT (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell stated that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is about to commence construction of the widening of Route 123 in the area of Burke Lake Park, Project 0123-029-132-R201. That widening will take a portion of the property of the Sikh Foundation of Virginia in which is located the septic system for its temple.

Supervisor McConnell said that VDOT and the Foundation have agreed on a site for relocation of the drainage field. However the relocation site is off the Foundation property on other land taken by VDOT as part of this project. Health Department regulations require the septic system to be on the same lot as the building it serves. It will, therefore, be necessary for VDOT and the Foundation to submit a boundary line adjustment to incorporate the site for the relocated drain field into the Foundation property. It will also be necessary for the Foundation to obtain a special permit amendment, for Special Permit Application SP 83-S-098, to incorporate the new drain field location into the property subject to the special permit.

Supervisor McConnell stated that because a failure to expeditiously act on the boundary line adjustment and the special permit amendment would cause either a delay in the VDOT project or a shut down of the temple, she moved that the Board direct the staff to process both applications expeditiously. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

54. SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT APPOINTMENTS (Tape 7)

(APPTS) (NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board deferred appointments of the Springfield District Representatives to the Airports Advisory Committee and the Criminal Justice Advisory Board, respectively.)

Supervisor McConnell moved the appointment of Mr. Kenneth Meagher as the Springfield District Representative to the Airports Advisory Committee. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor McConnell moved the appointment of Mr. Gene R. Voegtlin to fill the unexpired term of Mr. Michael J. Keenan as the Springfield District Representative to the Criminal Justice Advisory Board. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by unanimous vote.

55. SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT NEWSLETTER (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell announced that the Springfield District newsletter is posted on the County’s website and can be viewed at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/gov/bos/spd/NL0102.htm.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board raised this issue again. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#64.)

56. MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT’S FIFTEENTH ANNUAL TOWN MEETING (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland announced that the Mount Vernon District’s Fifteenth Annual Town Meeting, held at the Mount Vernon High School’s Little Theatre attracted more than 375 people. He expressed appreciation to Members of the Board and staff who attended.

Supervisor Hyland stated that a major focus at this year’s meeting was discussion about the Army’s concern about public access to Fort Belvoir (which began prior to September 11) and the resulting closure of Woodlawn Road.

Supervisor Hyland announced that this successful meeting was taped and will replay on Cable Channel 16 at 8 p.m. on Monday, February 4; Thursday, February 14; and Monday, February 18, 2002. Extra copies of the tape will also be available for loan to citizens by the end of this week at Mount Vernon District Libraries and at the Supervisor’s office.

57. WAIVER OF SHOWMOBILE FEES (Tape 7)

With reference to his written Board Matter on the subject, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to waive the fee for the use of the Showmobile for the Martha Washington Community Library for its event called "Diversity Day" on April 20, 2002. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

58. RECOGNITION OF DAVID MOLCHANY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland stated that he recently learned that Fairfax County’s Chief Information Officer, David Molchany, was recognized by Computerworld Magazine as one of the business world’s Premier 100 Informational Technology Leaders for 2002. Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Molchany to appear before the Board to be recognized for his accomplishments. Without objection, it was so ordered.

59. MOUNT VERNON RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) NUMBER 24 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter which stated that the residents of Maryland Street have submitted petitions to his office for the expansion of the Mount Vernon RPPD Number 24. He had requested that staff from the Department of Transportation study this street to determine if it meets the guidelines as set forth in the County Code for a RPPD.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board waive the $10 per petition signature RPPD application fee for the residents of Maryland Street. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

60. OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT S01-IV-LP1 (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter that stated that last July he offered a motion for property located on Richmond Highway, south of Pohick Church, to consider removing a condition in the Comprehensive Plan that limits residential use to elderly housing. There is now general agreement in the community that, in addition to changing the condition requiring elderly housing, the current Plan’s density of 4-5 dwelling units per acre (du/ac) should be reduced to a density of 3-4 du/ac.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board expand the authorization related to Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment S01-IV-LP1 to consider a reduction in planned density as well as a change to the condition requiring elderly housing. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

61. CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR MADISON HOMES, INCORPORATED (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey stated that Madison Homes, Incorporated, has submitted two rezoning applications (scheduled for public hearing later in the day) requesting approval to develop a total of 94 single family attached units along Rugby Road. Given the fact that the application is consistent with the recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan and has received a favorable recommendation from both the staff and the Planning Commission, the applicant has requested that the Board authorize concurrent processing.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to process the subdivision plans concurrently with the consideration of Rezoning Application RZ 2001-SU-034 and Rezoning Application RZ 2001-SU-035. He noted that the applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing regarding these two rezoning applications was held. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#78.)

62. PROPOSED ZONING ORDINANCE AMENDMENT FOR THE R-C RESIDENTIAL CONSERVATION ZONING DISTRICT (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey announced that the Board would soon be scheduling a meeting of the Development Process Committee to consider the Zoning Ordinance amendment workload priority program.

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to prepare an amendment to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 112 (Zoning Ordinance), as a Priority One item that would allow, by special exception, the offices or headquarters, and associated management activities, for an athletic organization and related athletic facilities in the R-C Residential Conservation Zoning District.

Following a brief discussion, Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

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

 

63. DARTMOOR REGIONAL POND D-40 AND OTHER STORMWATER ISSUES (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey stated that in light of the recent concern over the existing Stormwater Management Regional Pond Programs and the preliminary resolution from the Environmental Quality Advisory Council (EQAC) Regional Storm Management, he moved that the Board defer Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 84-C-015 (Dartmoor Regional Pond D-40) indefinitely. He noted that "indefinitely" in this case is defined as until the larger pond program is reviewed. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

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

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the staff of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) to evaluate on a watershed-by-watershed basis the watershed master planning initiative as currently proposed by staff.

Supervisor Frey further moved that the Board direct staff to form a multi-agency committee to develop a unified position on the use of regional ponds as a watershed management tool. The committee shall consist of staff from DPWES, the Park Authority, the Department of Planning and Zoning, the County Executive’s Office, the County’s environmental coordinator, EQAC, and other organizations as appropriate.

Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion with the understanding that the review would include regional ponds as well as other alternative types of stormwater controls.

Following discussion, Supervisor McConnell asked to amend the motion to stipulate that the review will not interfere with ongoing projects or projects that will be submitted, and this was accepted.

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

64. SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT NEWSLETTER (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board discussed the online Springfield District newsletter. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#55.)

In light of today’s warm weather, Supervisor Mendelsohn called the Board’s attention to an article about snow in the Springfield District newsletter.

 

65. INTENT TO DEFER PUBLIC HEARINGS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey announced his intent to defer, later in the day at the appropriate time, the public hearing on Rezoning Application RZ 2001-SU-033 until February 25, 2002.
