64. MAIN STREET CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER FINDS TEMPORARY HOME (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly reminded the Board that in September the Main Street Child Development Center was given notice that it would have to vacate its space by the end of July due to renovation and expansion of the church that has been its home for the last 29 years. The Child Development Center provides childcare for many low-income families from the County and the City of Fairfax who were then put at risk of losing their childcare provider.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

66. LANGUAGE CARDS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly stated that he recently met with the graduates of the thirty-eighth session at the Criminal Justice Academy. One year ago he was honored to be the keynote speaker at the graduation of that session and that night he invited the graduates to join him one year later so he could learn what their first year was like and ways that Fairfax could improve.

Supervisor Connolly noted that one of the suggestions raised at the meeting pertained to language problems. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct the Public Information Offices of the Police and Fire and Rescue Departments to join with the Office of Public Affairs to develop a laminated card that would allow individuals to identify the language they speak. He envisioned a card that would have in each language "I speak _" and then an English identification of the language.

He did note that Lake Braddock Secondary School did go on to win the State Championship.

This was the team’s third consecutive state tournament appearance. While the Hawks lost the game to Cave Spring in a semifinal match-up, they won in many other ways and their success is due to the dedication of their coaches, their players, and the athletic and academic support of the entire Hayfield community.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to invite the members of the Hawks Boys’ Basketball team, their coaches, and principal to a future Board meeting to receive formal recognition for their efforts.

Last year, these volunteers accomplished several other important natural resource management projects in Virginia, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania. Huntley Meadows and the Park Authority have benefited from the hard work of Americorps volunteers for the past three years.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to invite Ms. Mary Beth Misluk and members of the Americorps Team 11 to appear before the Board at a convenient time before they leave the area, to receive formal recognition for their efforts. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor Mendelsohn not yet having arrived.

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, Supervisor Mendelsohn’s absence was explained. See page 1.)

Therefore, on behalf of Supervisor Mendelsohn, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services and the Department of Planning and Zoning to proceed with concurrent processing of this application. He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provision of any and all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards, and does not constitute support by the Board for the special exception amendment application.

The application would preserve the existing home on the property and establish three additional lots, as well as preserve environmentally sensitive features of the property. He noted that the applicants continue to work with the County and the McLean Citizens' Association on issues relevant to this application.

Therefore, on behalf of Supervisor Mendelsohn, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, and the Department of Planning and Zoning to proceed with concurrent processing of this application. He noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provision of any and all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards, and does not constitute support by the Board of Supervisors for the Special Exception application. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor Mendelsohn not yet having arrived.

74. FAIRFAX CORNER SHARED PARKING MOTION AND A-2 – APPROVAL OF AN INITIAL PARKING REDUCTION REQUEST FOR FAIRFAX CORNER TOWN CENTER (SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT) (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting action was deferred on Action Item A-2. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#19.)

Supervisor McConnell said that the applicant for the Fairfax Corner mixed-use project has requested a shared parking reduction, which has been under review for almost two years. The main unresolved issue is how much theatre parking needs to be provided on weekday afternoons.

Supervisor McConnell said that staff has utilized a 1983 ULI Study which indicates that 70 percent of a theatre's parking should be available on a weekday afternoon. The applicant has conducted actual surveys of four different theatres, three in Northern Virginia and one in Florida at three different time periods - July, Christmas week, and January. The applicant's data indicates that less than 30 percent of a theatre's parking is used on weekday afternoons. The applicant has proposed that 35 percent of the theatre parking will be available on weekday afternoons.

Supervisor McConnell noted that in this case, the applicant's data is more accurate and relevant than the 1983 ULI study. She noted that this applicant intends to invest over $100 million in this mixed-use project.

Supervisor McConnell noted that if the parking proves not to be adequate, there is a condition - found in the fifth bullet of the attachment distributed with the Board Matter - which allows the Board to require the applicant to provide additional parking. The County is fully protected if there is a problem.

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board approve an initial parking reduction for Fairfax Corner pursuant to the staff recommendation with the modification to the staff recommendation as distributed and as follows:

Supervisor McConnell noted that this would result in a minimum of 2,336 parking spaces provided for Phase I/IA and a minimum of 2,990 parking spaces provided for buildout.

Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Discussion ensued with input from Richard B. Hayes, staff, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, and Frank McDermott, attorney for the applicant.

Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, stated that staff would provide a total review of this application since its inception.

Following further discussion, with input from Mr. McDermott, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn not yet having arrived.

75. DIXCENGATO REZONING APPLICATIONS (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell said that on January 28, 2002, the Board authorized the inclusion of right-of-way for portions of Ruffin Drive, Deming Drive, Butler Drive, Legato Road, Dixie Hill Road, Rhett Lane, and Quality Street within the land area of the Centex Homes DixCenGato rezoning applications. The application has been reviewed by staff and, in response to staff's comments, the applicant has added new parcels, rendering the three application areas contiguous and resulting in the consolidation of the three rezoning applications to one. The consolidation of additional parcels enables the applicant to reconfigure roadways and ensure provision of the appropriate infrastructure. To that end, Centex has requested Board authorization to include additional right-of-way within the application land area.

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of 10.56519 acres of right-of-way for portions of Ruffin Drive, Butler Drive, Dixie Hill Road, Rhett Lane, and Legato Road, and all of the right-of-way for Deming Drive, 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:

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 Frey seconded the motion.

Supervisor Frey noted for the record his desire to continue having a street named Quality.

The question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn not yet having arrived.

76. LANDMASTER, INCORPORATED (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell said that Landmaster, Incorporated has filed a rezoning application on its property identified as Tax Map 77-1((1)) 5. The application requests rezoning from the C-8 District to the I-5 District in this industrial area on the north side of the Norfolk Southern railway. A section of Hill Street bisects the property and will be the subject of a vacation application.

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of the subject portion of Hill Street to be included in the application. 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 Frey seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn not yet having arrived.

77. CONVEYANCE OF ABANDONED SUMMIT DRIVE RIGHT-OF-WAY (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell said that on August 6, 2001, the Board abandoned a segment of Summit Drive right-of-way north of Lee Highway. The abandonment was done to realign the right-of-way in accordance with the Board's approval of Rezoning Application RZ 2000-SU-012. Centex Homes has requested that a portion of the abandoned right-of-way be conveyed to Centex Homes to develop the property in accordance with the approved development plan. Centex has requested that the Board schedule the appropriate Board public hearing for April 29, 2002, and staff does not object to the requested date.

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to schedule the appropriate public hearing on the conveyance of the previously abandoned Summit Drive right-of-way to occur on April 29, 2002. She noted that this motion does not in any way prejudice the Board's consideration of the request to convey the abandoned right-of-way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn not yet having arrived.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTER

NV:nv

109. ROUTE 28 BOND ISSUE UPDATE (Tape 15)

Chairman Hanley raised the issue of action by the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors regarding a Route 28 transportation improvement bond.

Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, called the Board’s attention to copies of the staff report prepared by Loudoun County for its Board of Supervisors which he distributed earlier in the day. He reported that the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors directed staff to work on Alternative Four, which was to direct Loudoun County staff to work with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Fairfax County staff to develop a proposal that would include a reduced moral obligation on both counties.

Leonard P. Wales, Assistant Director, Department of Management and Budget, briefed the Board on the matter and said that the State would refund its own bonds but extend the term. The result is to dramatically reduce the amount of debt service from the tax district that goes to servicing State bonds. The surplus revenue would be leveraged into a local bond issue by one of the County Economic Development Authorities that would be backed by the counties sharing a moral obligation pledge that should generate about $70 million. This would be added to the State’s $70 million for a total construction fund of $140 million. The counties would provide a limited moral obligation of about $35 million of any new money.

Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct the County Executive to continue working with Loudoun County and VDOT to come to an agreement along the lines described by Mr. Wales. Supervisor Frey seconded the motion.

Following further discussion, with input from Mr. Wales, the question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor Kauffman being out of the room.
