Supervisor Hyland referred to a MVCCA resolution that pertains to Health and Human Services Planning for Fiscal Year 2003. It expresses the Council’s support for sustaining priorities, programs, and services for the County’s most vulnerable populations.

Although the Budget has already been approved, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board refer the letter and resolution to staff for a comprehensive response providing complete information on the outcome of the Board’s budget actions. Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

25. MOUNT VERNON COUNCIL OF CITIZENS ASSOCIATIONS (MVCCA) RESOLUTION CONCERNING THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION'S (VDOT) PROPOSED INTERCHANGE AT BUCKMAN ROAD - MOUNT VERNON HIGHWAY AT ROUTE ONE (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland said that the Council maintains that the revised design improves the flow of traffic by eliminating traffic signals, eliminates start and stop movements, and provides adequate stacking lanes.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board refer the resolution to staff for review and recommendations to the Board as to further action. Without objection, it was so ordered.

26. GEORGE WASHINGTON'S WILL (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland said that he recently received a letter from Edith Sprouse, Archaeologist Representative, History Commission, who has recommended that the will of George Washington be placed on display at the next Celebrate Fairfax fair which will be held at the Government Center beginning June 7 and ending on June 9, 2002. He noted that George Washington's will is among the most valuable historic documents in the County’s possession. Having it on display at the Celebrate Fairfax fair provides an appropriate venue for fair visitors to see it firsthand.

 

Supervisor Hyland added that permission has been granted by the court, provided it is secure and guarded while on display. Ms. Sprouse has been told the cost would be $35 per hour for a security guard, but the Sheriff has indicated that he lacks the funds to absorb this cost.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the County Executive to find a way to fund the security measures needed to protect George Washington's will as required by the Court in order to allow more of citizens and fair visitors a greater opportunity to view George Washington's will at the Celebrate Fairfax fair. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Kauffman suggested placing the History Commission display and the Sheriff's Office display next to one another at the fair.

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

27. REQUEST CONCERNING OPEN SPACE REGARDING LAUREL CREST SUBDIVISION (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland said that an engineering error on the subdivision plat for the Laurel Crest Subdivision has resulted in a number of units within the development not meeting minimum setback requirements. A resubdivision of 22 of these lots will correct the error, but will result in a minor reduction in open space of about 1,419 square feet.

Supervisor Hyland said that staff has reviewed the subdivision plat and original site plan for the property. With this reduction, the project will continue to be in compliance with open space requirements. To allow the approval and recordation of the revised plat for the Laurel Crest Resubdivison, an offer of the open space being configured back into the lots must first be made, and has been made by the developer.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board refuse the offer of 1,419 square feet of the open space for the Laurel Crest Subdivision, as provided for in Paragraph 4 of Section 2-702(4) of the Zoning Ordinance. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

28. PROGRESSO HISPANO SEEKS INTERIM SPACE (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland said that Progresso Hispano provides English as a second language classes, job skill training, good parenting classes, citizenship classes, and other needed support services to the Hispanic community within Fairfax County. On April 29, 2002, the Board approved $200,000 to renovate the County-owned Walt Whitman facility to house this program.

Supervisor Hyland said that Progresso Hispano is currently providing services and is in need of interim space until the Walt Whitman renovations are complete. With the opening of the South County Center and the consolidation of County programs, County leased space is available that can be utilized for this interim use. The Fairfax County Health Department occupied space at 6301 Richmond Highway. The County leases this space at very favorable terms of $5.32 per square foot. The lease for this space terminates on March 31, 2003, and will not be renewed with the moving of the Health Department. Due to the favorable terms, the County was not able to negotiate an earlier termination date.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to proceed to execute the necessary agreements to provide the available space located at 6301 Richmond Highway to Progresso Hispano as an interim measure not to exceed either the completion of the renovations to the Walt Whitman facility, nor the current lease termination date of March 31, 2003. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

The applicant, Ms. Eileen Dowds Minarik, desires the school to be open for school year 2002-2003, which begins September 4, 2002.

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 018-3 ((6)) 007-A concurrentLY with the review of Special Exception Application SE 2002-HM-009. This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinance, 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 nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

34. FREEDOM GROVE (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hudgins said that on September 11, 2001, many lives were lost in New York and at the Pentagon including two Reston residents, Ms. Norma Cruz Khan and Mr. Leonard Taylor. In an effort to remember Ms. Khan and Mr. Taylor and to provide a peaceful and contemplative place for reflecting on the September 11 events, the Reston Association and the community planted trees and shrubs and dedicated the area as Freedom Grove. An artist was commissioned to design a plaque to memorialize the loss of Ms. Khan and Mr. Taylor as well as other victims of September 11, 2001. The community is invited to attend a very special event on May 8, 2002, at 4:30 p.m. for the unveiling of the plaque designed by artist Kathy Kaplan.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Reston Association to appear before the Board to be recognized for their compassion to the families and victims of September 11, 2001, and for designing and dedicating Freedom Grove. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

35. GREEN HEDGES SCHOOL (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hudgins said that in 1965, Frances and Kenton Kilmer founded the Green Hedges School on a small farm in the town of Vienna. In addition to the school, Frances and Kenton Kilmer were committed to the community and were involved in the development of the local library and many other civic activities in Vienna. Green Hedges School has always placed an unusually high value on scholastic excellence within its student body with a focus on the importance of a good education as the hallmark for positive contributions to society and the community. Green Hedges School is celebrating 60 years of providing educational excellence in the Vienna community.

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board recognize the Green Hedges School community for its 60 years of contributions to the education of students and to the Town of Vienna. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

North of these uses, adjacent to Route 50, hotels and restaurants are planned.

Supervisor Frey said that the owner of the property has approached him with a request to amend the Comprehensive Plan to permit a furniture store in that area. As a basis for their request, the owners have cited the low traffic generation and low parking requirement associated with furniture stores, compatibility with the approved retail uses, and the change in the proposed access to the Air and Space Museum Annex. The site in question had been proposed for recreational uses, which were anticipated to complement the Air and Space Museum Annex, but since the Annex access from Route 50/Lee Road will be limited to employees and service vehicles, the owners believe that this site is no longer appropriate for those uses.

Supervisor Frey reported that he had discussed this request with staff from the Planning Division of the Department of Planning and Zoning and staff thinks that there is merit in further analysis to the requested change. Accordingly, he moved that the Board direct the staff of the Department of Planning and Zoning to consider an out-of-turn Plan amendment to add an option for a retail establishment, limited to a furniture store, within Land Unit I of the Dulles Suburban Center, and limited to that area south of Chantilly Crossing Lane and the EQC that traverses Tax Map Parcel 34-3-((1))7D. He noted that this motion does not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. Supervisor Hudgins second the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

39. SE NECESITA AYUDA (Tape 9)

Supervisor Connolly stated that according to the 2000 Census, the Hispanic population of the County was calculated at 11 percent or 106,672 of 969,749 residents in the County. He recently noted that the Fairfax Area Agency on Aging’s publication entitled Services for Older Adults in the Fairfax Area Frequently Called Numbers lists bilingual services for Chinese-Mandarin, Chinese-Cantonese, and Korean, but none for the Spanish-speaking population. He noted that staff had indicated that there were only volunteers in those languages.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to assess the bilingual services offered by the Fairfax Area Agency on Aging and correct this serious omission to ensure bilingual services in Spanish. Without objection, it was so ordered.

40. REQUEST TO INCREASE THE VIRGINIA ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROGRAM (VASAP) FEE (Tape 9)

Supervisor Connolly said that as a follow up to Board concern about the Fairfax County Alcohol Safety Action Program budget for Fiscal Year 2003 that was called to the Board’s attention during the Inventory of County Activities, Programs, and Services presentations, the Legislative Committee discussed funding alternatives to pay for the increasing cost of services. During that discussion, staff noted that the VASAP Commission could grant authority to the County to add a differential or surcharge fee to address the rising cost of running the program. The Committee decided to wait to see if the General Assembly would address the issue and it did not do so.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the draft letter attached to his written Board Matter be sent from the Chairman on behalf of the Board to the co-chairmen of VASAP requesting the Commission to permit the County to add a differential to its current fee schedule. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

41. NOMINATION FOR THE FAIRFAX-FALLS CHURCH COMMUNITY SERVICES BOARD (Tape 9)

(BACs) Supervisor Connolly announced his intent at the next Board meeting to nominate Mr. Herb Taylor for reappointment as the Providence District Representative to the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board.

42. WEGMANS FOOD SERVICES (Tape 9)

Supervisor McConnell 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 an upcoming application regarding Wegmans Food Services, Incorporated. This application will be associated with the previous Rezoning Application RZ 98-SU-040. She noted that 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 Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

Following additional comments, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to expedite this application. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

43. FAIRFAX CORNER MIXED USE APPLICATIONS (Tape 9)

Supervisor McConnell said that Fairfax Corner Mixed Use LC has submitted proffered condition amendment and final development plan amendment applications for the property identified as Tax Map 56-1-((1))-47B, 47B1, 47B2 and 56-2-((1))-75. The present use is site plan approved and graded and one building is under construction. The application proposes some change to the office, retail, and residential mixed-use.

Supervisor McConnell stated that the Planning Commission public hearing on the application was deferred to June 20, 2002, to provide staff and the applicant more time to work out the details, but with the understanding that a date certain in July for the Board hearing would be obtained. The applicant has requested that the public hearing be held before the Board on July 1, 2002, and staff has no objection to the request.

Accordingly, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to schedule the public hearing on Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 87-S-039-5 and Final Development Plan Amendment Application FDPA 87-S-039-9 on July 1, 2002. She noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of the rezoning application in any way. Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

44. SALES TAX REFERENDUM FOR TRANSPORTATION (Tape 9)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board took a position supporting this referendum. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#18.)

Supervisor McConnell stated that she discussed the sales tax referendum for transportation with Daniel Domenech, School Superintendent, and reported that he fully supports its passage. She expressed her appreciation for his support.

45. LETTER FROM STUART GIBSON, SCHOOL BOARD CHAIRMAN (Tape 9)

Chairman Hanley stated that newspapers reported last week that she had received a letter from School Board Chairman Stuart Gibson, but when the article appeared she had not yet received the letter, nor had she been given a chance to comment. She said that she did receive the letter and has responded. She indicated that she would circulate to the Board copies of the letter and her response.

 

Supervisor Frey said that he had received a letter from the Schools regarding how the Maryland legislature funds its schools. Discussion continued briefly.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, copies of the letters referenced by Chairman Hanley were distributed to the Board. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#59.)

46. RECESS/CLOSED SESSION (Tape 9)
