Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct the County Executive to develop a Request for Proposal (RFP) in response to the request from the School Board to solicit responses from the private sector to pursue a partnership to construct a high school at Laurel Hill. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide further information from the Department of Management and Budget as to the possible efficiencies the arrangement might create and more detail in terms of long term debt capacity. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley clarified her motion to stipulate that the Board would consider the proposed detailed RFP before it would be released to the public.

Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to solicit opinions from the County’s outside bond counsel on the possible effect of this arrangement and its cumulative effect with other proposed actions. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following further discussion regarding other opportunities for similar public-private arrangements in other areas, Chairman Hanley noted that they should be prefaced with a request from the School Board since such arrangements would affect the School Division’s Capital Improvement Program.

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

22. RESPONSE TO THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY’S (DEQ) DRAFT FECAL COLIFORM TOTAL MAXIMUM DAILY LOAD (TMDL) FOR ACCOTINK CREEK (Tape 6)

(BACs) Chairman Hanley called the Board’s attention to a memorandum she received from the County Executive regarding the Environmental Quality Advisory Council’s (EQAC) request to transmit comments regarding a proposal from the DEQ regarding the establishment of a proposed TMDL for fecal coliform bacteria for a portion of Accotink Creek. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct staff to forward EQAC’s comments, without Board comment, to DEQ. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

23. ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY ADVISORY COUNCIL RESOLUTION REGARDING REGIONAL STORMWATER MANAGEMENT (Tape 7)

(BACs) Supervisor Mendelsohn referred to a memorandum from Robert A. Stalzer, Deputy County Executive, regarding regional stormwater management. He asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review the issues outlined in memorandum. Without objection, it was so ordered.

24. ALZHEIMER'S FAMILY DAY CENTER (Tape 7)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that for over 15 years the Alzheimer's Family Day Center has provided day health and respite services to victims of Alzheimer's Disease and their families. The Center, a nonprofit organization, is located on Westmoreland Street in the Chesterbrook Presbyterian Church in Falls Church.

Unfortunately, despite the success of the Center, the church congregation was unable to sustain itself and the property reverted to the Presbytery of the National Capital area in January 2001. As a result, the church currently houses a Taiwanese Presbyterian congregation that wishes to utilize all extra spaces for church activities, and the Falls Church McLean Children's Center will relocate in September 2003 to Lemon Road Elementary School.

In anticipation of these events, Supervisor Mendelsohn said that for the last two years he has been working with the Department of Housing and Community Development and a number of agencies within the County to design a coordinated program for seniors at the Lewinsville Center, including construction of an affordable assisted living facility. Although space has been included in this design to house the unique programs of the Alzheimer's Family Day Center, the complexity of assembling the financing for this program and the need for community review make it likely that the Alzheimer's Family Day Center may need to identify interim space in the near future.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board authorize staff to assist the Alzheimer's Family Day Center to identify an interim private location, including a possible temporary rent subsidy, until space at the Lewinsville Center becomes available. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

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

25. CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION FOR MAKE KIDS SMILE, INCORPORATED AND OTHERS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross said that the public-private partnerships play an important role in maintaining and enhancing the quality of life in Fairfax County. A recent example is the new and safer playground installed for residents living near the Willston Multi-cultural Center in Mason District.

Supervisor Gross noted that Make Kids Smile, Incorporated, a local non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization, made it possible for the old playground equipment to be replaced by new, safe and ADA accessible play components. Make Kids Smile covered the cost of the playground and the raw materials, and coordinated the building efforts, using volunteers from Habitat for Humanity as well as County employees from the Department of Community and Recreation Services, Park Authority, Facilities Management, and Risk Management, to prepare the site and ensure safety requirements.

In recognition of this extraordinary effort on behalf of the County, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to invite Peter A. Ognibene, President of Make Kids Smile, Incorporated, and other appropriate individuals to appear before the Board to receive its thanks in April. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

26. RETIREMENT OF MAJORS FRANK AND NELLIE SWIMM (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross announced that Majors Frank and Nellie Swimm will be retiring after 28 years of service to the community, including 13 years directing the Adult Rehabilitation Center of the Salvation Army in Mason District.

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board issue a proclamation to be presented to Major and Mrs. Swimm at their retirement celebration on June 29, 2002. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

27. RESCUE ORGANIZATION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that on Friday, February 15, 2002, the Vienna Fire Department donated an ambulance to Los Camilleros, a rescue organization based in El Salvador. Los Camilleros in Spanish translates to stretcher carriers.

Supervisor Hudgins said that the donation was made possible when Rony Avalos, a Fairfax County Technician of Station 25 of the Fire and Rescue Department, noticed that the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department had for sale a 1989 Ford F350 ambulance and made an inquiry on behalf of Los Camilleros. Previously the Vienna Fire Department had been unsuccessful in obtaining a sale for the ambulance, while El Salvador has had a need of securing medical transport vehicles in the aftermath of several recent major earthquakes in the region. Currently, Los Camilleros uses an old flatbed pickup truck to transport patients.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board recognize the Vienna Volunteer Firefighters and Mr. Avalos for their dedication to saving lives in Fairfax County and El Salvador. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

28. SUPPORT FOR BIRMINGHAM GREEN ADULT CARE RESIDENCE (ACR) (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins referred to her written Board Matter regarding the Birmingham Green ACR. The ACR provides a home for those incapable of fully supporting themselves. She added that she has received a request that the Board forward a letter to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development in support of funding for the renovation.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct the Chairman to send a letter on behalf of the Board in support of funding for the renovation of the Birmingham Green ACR. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

29. HERNDON JUNIOR ERIC ZAKRZEWSKI WINS WRESTLING TITLE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hudgins said that Herndon High School junior Eric Zakrzewski won the Virginia AAA 170 pound final in wrestling division. She moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Zakrzewski to appear before the Board to be recognized for his accomplishment. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

30. INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 81-P-069-2 (SMII FAIRFAX, LLC) (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT) (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly announced his intent, later in the meeting at the appropriate time, to defer the public hearing on Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 81-P-069-2 until March 4, 2002, at 3 p.m.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#50.)

31. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MS. MABEL HANKES (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that in 1899 Commodore Dewey won the seven-hour battle of Manila Bay and the Treaty of Paris ended the Spanish-American War. The Boer War broke out in South Africa. Ships carried settlers to Australia and to the Americas. Butch Cassidy was robbing trains in the wilds of Wyoming and San Francisco State University was chartered. The world lost one of its great composers when Johann Strauss passed away and the US entry Columbia won the America's Cup, defeating Sir Thomas Lipton's British entry.

Supervisor Connolly noted that born 103 years ago were Duke Ellington, Jascha Heifetz, Alfred Hitchock, Hoagy Carmichel, Ernest Hemmingway and his constituent: Ms. Mabel Hankes.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board send best wishes to Ms. Hankes on the occasion of her 103rd birthday and direct staff to send her a Certificate of Recognition. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

32. COOPERATIVE GRANTS GRANTS PROGRAM (COOP) (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that COOP, implemented by the National Association of Foreign Student Advisers (NAFSA): Association of International Educators and funded by the Department of State, is accepting proposals from US based institutions of higher education and nonprofit organizations for the Muslim Intercultural Exchange Grant competition.

The Muslim Intercultural Exchange Grants are awards in the range of $2001- $10,000 to create opportunities for students from predominately Muslim countries to engage in exchange with US peers and their host communities, and to increase resources and understanding about the Muslim world.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to inform the citizens of Fairfax County about this opportunity through the NAFSA: Association of International Educators website at www.nafsa.org. Without objection, it was so ordered.

33. PROPOSED PUBLIC FACILITIES MANUAL (PFM) AMENDMENT (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that recently a letter of credit submitted to the County by a local bank was rejected because of a procedural matter. Presently the County uses the Sheshunoff rating system, which only includes commercial banks in its listing of approved institutions. Therefore, when a local bank receives the required co-signing from a non-commercial bank, it is automatically rejected because it does not appear on that particular list. He added that he has discussed this with Robert Mears, Director of Finance, who would like to be able to correct this procedural limitation. One solution may be to give the Director of Finance the flexibility to use other rating institutions, such as Standards and Poors, in addition to Sheshunoff, when looking at noncommercial banks. This would require an amendment to the Public Facilities Manual (PFM).

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to initiate staff action to bring a proposed PFM amendment to the Board for consideration. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

34. PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, CHAPTER 112 (ZONING ORDINANCE) REGARDING STORAGE YARDS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that he has discovered that car dealerships in the Tysons area are using excess parking spaces at various locations in industrial districts to store new cars. He noted that storage of new motor vehicles is not permitted in any Commercial District as a matter of right, by special exception, or special permit.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Zoning Administrator to review this issue and to prepare as appropriate a Zoning Ordinance amendment which would permit "Storage Yards" for the storage of new motor vehicles either by right or by special exception in the commercial and industrial districts. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Connolly clarified that the proposed amendment would be included in the worklist of items for the Board to prioritize.

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

35. EXPEDITED IMPLEMENTATION OF WEB SITE LINKS TO PRE-SUBMISSION MEETING APPLICATION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly noted that the land use application process can at times become a long and trying experience to citizens and community organizations that have limited direct experience with the County's system of land use planning and zoning. The Board created the Places of Worship Ombudsman position to shepherd religious organizations though the process. Additionally, the Department of Planning and Zoning has provided applicants the opportunity to meet with staff from several reviewing agencies in pre-submission meetings. These meetings have helped to reduce errors in applications, essentially streamlining the process, allowing for quicker review of applications, thereby saving time and money for citizens and the County simultaneously.

Supervisor Connolly said that it has been brought to his attention that information pertaining to the availability of pre-submission meetings is not readily available. The application for a pre-submission meeting is currently located under several layers of web pages that most people could never find unless they were expressly directed there.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the Department of Information Technology to expedite adding the pre-submission meeting application web link to the home pages of the Office of Transportation, Department of Fire and Rescue, Water Authority, the Department of Planning and Zoning, and the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

36. PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 88-D-005-5 (WEST*GROUP) (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that West*Group is in the process of submitting Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 88-D-005-5 that would result in the construction of housing in the heart of Tysons Corner. To be able to proceed with the application, West*Group is required to re-calculate tabulations for the gross tract area. A portion of this land bay includes the County-owned Transit Station located at Tax Map 29-1-0014-A. As a result, the County will be required to engage in the process of full disclosure related to Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 88-D-005-5. The Transit Station is not otherwise affected by this application except for the above-described density conversion and re-allocation recalculations.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board:

This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on this application, nor does this motion relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or standards, in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the Board took further action regarding this issue. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#67.)

37. THIRD ANNUAL PROVIDENCE DISTRICT ENVIRONMENTAL WORKSHOP (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly announced that the third annual Providence District Environmental Workshop will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2002, at the Luther Jackson Middle School located at 3020 Gallows Road, Falls Church from 9 a.m. until noon.

Supervisor Frey reported that three teams of students representing Oak Hill Elementary School recently won highest honors in the first of three meets of this year’s WordMasters Challenge, a national language arts competition entered by 250,000 students annually. He moved that the Board direct the staff of the Office of Public Affairs to invite the students to appear before the Board for recognition of this outstanding achievement. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

39. WAIVER OF LANDFILL FEES FOR PARTICIPANTS IN THE ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY PROGRAM (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey stated that a citizen recently called to his attention the fact that participants involved in the Adopt-a-Highway program who take the collected refuse to the landfill directly (rather than leaving it bagged along the road for pickup by the Virginia Department of Transportation) have to pay landfill fees. Accordingly, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to investigate whether there are ways that these fees could be waived for persons demonstrating participation in the program.

Following input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, without objection, the request was so ordered.

40. RECOGNITION OF LOCAL WINTER OLYMPIANS (Tape 8)

Jointly with Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the following two County residents to appear before the Board in recognition of their achievements for participating in the recently-completed 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah:

Supervisor Connolly asked to amend the request to direct the Office of Public Affairs to coordinate with his office when Mr. Weiss will appear, and this was accepted.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

41. RECOGNITION OF HABITAT FOR HUMANITY PROJECT (Tape 8)

Supervisor Bulova reported that a unique partnership is working together to increase the County’s stock of affordable housing. Three to four acres of land on Stevenson Street in the Springfield District located across Lee Highway from the Braddock District was provided to Habitat for Humanity by the Redevelopment and Housing Authority. She said that a consortium of churches, clubs, families, non-profits, and businesses are working with Habitat for Humanity to construct what will eventually be a total of 18 attractive and affordable townhomes. People who will eventually live in these homes are also required to work on the homes as "sweat equity" as a condition of ownership.

Supervisor Bulova said that one of the homes is being constructed by the following sponsors:

Accordingly, jointly with Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the participants in the Stevenson Street project to appear before the Board to be thanked and recognized for their unique and exemplary work. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to list the specific churches in the Ecumenical Council of Great Falls when this item returns to the Board. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, will also provide a list of County employees who participated in the program.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting this public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#52.)

43. DONATION OF PUMP TRUCK BY FRANCONIA VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT (Tape 8)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that as reported in a recent edition of The Washington Post and the Springfield Times, the Franconia Volunteer Fire Department donated its spare pump truck to Engine Company Number 3 in the Bronx, New York. Engine Company Number 3 lost its only pumper truck in the rubble from the collapse of the World Trade Center caused by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Supervisor Kauffman stated that through the magnanimous act of the Franconia Volunteer Fire Department, that station in New York is now back in operation.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Without objection, it was so ordered.
