The purpose of this update should be to identify the nature, location, and extent of future facilities and improvements at the base, and to evaluate potential impacts on the surrounding area, particularly as they relate to the transportation system. This was accepted.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide information regarding whether the Supplemental Environment Assessment of the relocation of army material command has ever been in the CIP. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following further discussion with input from Fred R. Selden, Director, PD, DPZ, Chairman Hanley asked to amend the motion that the Board endorse item number six (Department of the Army: Fort Belvoir) North Post Highway to Telegraph Road, as outlined in the Board Agenda Item dated June 17, 2002, and this was accepted.

Following further discussion, with input from Mr. Marshall and Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Connolly clarified his motion that the Board authorize staff to communicate, as part of the process, that the Board discussed the CIP and believed there was insufficient information for its consideration. Therefore, the Board is requesting additional information to assess the CIP and will make formal comments at the next Board meeting scheduled for July 1, 2002.

Chairman Hanley asked to amend the motion that the Board endorse items number one and six (Department of the Army: Fort Belvoir) Potomac Heritage Trail, and North Post Highway to Telegraph Road, and this was accepted.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

Following further discussion, with input from Mr. Marshall, Supervisor Connolly clarified that his motion included Mr. Kauffman's concerns about the impact it has on the County and the cumulative impact on the transportation network of the Army.

Teammates included:

The cheerleaders were Jessica Purks and Glyna Brooks from the Office of the County Executive.

38. GLEN CARLYN ROAD AND ROUTE 7 INTERSECTION (MASON DISTRICT) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Gross said that for many years the intersection of Glen Carlyn Road and Route 7 in the Culmore area has been an extremely busy one, for motorists and pedestrians alike. Staff has reviewed the intersection several times, but utility relocation costs have proved formidable. Improvements for vehicles need to be made, but pedestrian safety improvements also are vital.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to review the intersection and together with the Virginia Department of Transportation prepare a report on all the options that can be implemented to improve pedestrian safety at the intersection, with associated estimated costs. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

These two would constitute an approximate cost to the County of $68,500. The Center for Education will continue to provide beneficial educational services to the youth of Fairfax County.

Supervisor Hudgins moved a consideration item for the Fiscal Year 2002 Carryover, the waiver of the water availability and meter fees for the Wolf Trap Foundation's Center for Education at an approximate cost of $68,500. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Frey asked to amend the motion that the Board direct staff to formally request from the Water Authority a waiver/reduction of fees and if that is not possible then proceed with a consideration item, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

42. SOUTH LAKES HIGH SCHOOL TRACK AND FIELD TEAM (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the South Lakes High School Track and Field Team recently competed in the Virginia AAA track and field championships in Richmond. As a team, it finished tied for fifth in the Statewide meet. Two-time All-Met senior Richard Smith won the individual 800 meters and anchored the Seahawks' 4x800 relay team to victory. Other members of the victorious relay team were Jonathan Gohrband, Matt Greenspan, and Zack Haber. The meet in Richmond served as the culmination of an outstanding spring season for the South Lakes Track and Field Team.

Supervisor Hudgins said that in addition, the Madison High School softball team won the Virginia AAA Liberty District championship and finished the season with a record of 20-2. Several of Madison's softball players also received All-Met Honorable Mentions.

Without objection, it was so ordered.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the Board recognized other State Champions. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#49.)

44. COMMUNITY CHALLENGES TASK FORCE (Tape 6)

On January 23, 2002, Supervisor Bulova convened a Community Challenges Task Force in response to questions and concerns that she was receiving when she visited community associations in the Braddock District. The process began with an education about Virginia law, then went on to explore existing tools the County can use and examples of programs employed in other districts or jurisdictions (including the successful pilot projects in Lee and Mount Vernon). The process ended on May 22, 2002, with the group, which consisted of representatives from 11 communities in the Braddock District, unanimously recommending a slate of actions to be pursued. She expressed her appreciation to staff from the County Attorney’s Office, Health Department, Department of Planning and Zoning, and Police Traffic Safety for participating and assisting in the sessions.

Supervisor Bulova said that after the first four meetings, the group divided into two committees – the People Group, which dealt specifically with numbers of people in a household, and the Parking Group, which focused on parking. Final recommendations are a combination of "sticks and carrots." They deal mostly with the parking issues. The group eventually thought that it is not so much how many persons are living in a home, so long as their activities and behavior do not negatively affect their neighbors. The recommendations stress the importance of communication among neighbors, community outreach, and the empowering of neighborhoods with information about County and State laws and programs.

As recommended by the Task Force, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to report to the Board with how to produce and distribute a pamphlet designed to educate and empower neighborhoods to work in partnership with staff to address community challenges such as zoning violations, Health Department violations, traffic/parking violations, and upkeep of property. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Supervisor Bulova said that the Task Force recommended that communities be encouraged to greet new neighbors with "Welcome Wagon" baskets/packets, which would include information about how to be a good neighbor – "These are the rules we live by." They suggested that Northern Virginia Board of Realtors could encourage real estate agents to volunteer to work with community associations to distribute Welcome Wagon baskets/packets.

Following discussion, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County's Language Coordinator to work to provide pamphlets in multiple languages. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Bulova stated that the Task Force recommended endorsing several legislative items. The County Attorney’s office is prepared to bring several bills, two of them dealing with parking, to the Board for its consideration when the Board meets as a Legislative Committee. Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board refer the following to the Legislative Committee when it meets in September:

Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Gross asked to amend the motion to include a change to the timeframe in addition to increasing the fines, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Supervisor Bulova announced that the Task Force agreed to re-convene in September to discuss bills to be introduced at the General Assembly in January 2003.

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite members of the Community Challenges Task Force to appear before the Board to be thanked and recognized for this effort. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Kauffman commended Supervisor Bulova for her efforts on this issue.

45. PARKING IN P DISTRICTS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that the trend in single-family detached housing recently has been for larger homes on smaller lots. This trend is driven by several factors: buyers want less yard/lawn upkeep; development is clustered to preserve special site features or avoid problem areas; available sites are small and very expensive, and tree preservation is always an issue with the community.

In an attempt to save significant trees and allow a more flexible layout for new homes, the Board had been approving many private streets with a narrower profile in single family developments.

Supervisor Bulova said that she believed streets that were 30 feet wide from curb to curb could have parking on both sides of the street, and streets that were 24 feet wide from curb to curb could have parking on one side of the street. Based on these assumptions, as well as houses with two car garages as the standard, the County has not been requiring the applicant to set aside areas for guest parking.

The reality is that the Fire Marshal is only allowing parking on one side on 30 foot wide streets and no on street parking on streets less than 30 feet wide. The streets are not wide enough for fire equipment to maneuver especially on streets with reduced or no cul de sacs. Another factor limiting the parking is the popularity of a house type with a side-loading garage. On small lots, the driveway is shared by two houses with the side load feature. This precludes parking in the driveway because the vehicles need room to maneuver into the garages. The County is also approving plans with driveways less than 18 feet long so that even with front loading garages, the driveways may not be long enough to park a vehicle. She said that when households with more than two vehicles and/or SUVs too tall to clear the garage door are factored in, subdivisions are being created with inadequate parking for residents and no guest parking at all.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board:

Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

46. THE KEEPING OF BEES IN RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOODS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova said that recently a group of constituents contacted her office regarding a neighbor who has been keeping bees on a residential lot in a neighborhood of R-2 or R-3 density. According to the Code of the County of Fairfax as it now reads, up to four hives may be kept on any size lot in Fairfax County. This has caused the neighbors a great deal of distress. The neighbors believe that they are being denied the peaceful enjoyment of their property since, with large concentrations of bees so close, they cannot picnic or have a soda in their own backyards.

Supervisor Bulova said that the situation was brought to her attention when a ten year-old boy had to be hospitalized with a bee sting. As the population density increases, it is becoming statistically more and more likely that any bees kept in residential neighborhoods will be within 200 feet of a person who is allergic to bees. The keeping of bees on lots in such close proximity increases this statistic.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved to add the strengthening of the regulations on keeping bees to the Zoning Ordinance work program, specifically, to review the regulations dealing with lot sizes and minimum distances so as to provide the best environment to maintain healthy bee populations and peaceful neighborhoods. This motion died due to lack of a second.

47. UNION MILL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL'S MUSICAL PROGRAM (SPRINGFIELD AND SULLY DISTRICTS) (Tape 6)

Supervisor McConnell announced that she and Supervisor Frey attended the Union Mill Elementary School's musical program.

48. CONSIDERATION ITEM REGARDING RADAR GUNS (Tape 6)

49. WOODSON HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS' LACROSSE TEAM WINS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP (BRADDOCK AND PROVIDENCE DISTRICTS) (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board discussed high school State Championships. See Clerk's Summary Items CL#42 and CL#43.)

Supervisor Connolly announced that the Woodson High School Girls' Lacrosse team won the Virginia State Championship on Saturday, June 15, 2002, with an 8-7 sudden death victory over Rockbridge County High School. Accordingly, on behalf of Supervisor Bulova and himself, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite representative of the Woodson High School Girls' Lacrosse Team to appear before the Board to be honored for this accomplishment. Without objection, it was so ordered.

50. CIVIC PARTICIPATION WEEK (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly stated that the Attack on America was an attack on the democratic principles that are the very foundation of this government. Rather than discourage citizens, the attack strengthened the resolve of the American people to not only continue their level of participation in their communities and government, but to increase their participation. He said that a nationwide effort is underway led by members of Congress to mark the beginning of a weeklong showcase of efforts of renewal and commitment. Across this land citizens will engage in efforts of civic participation designed to underscore faith in this nation's democracy and honor those whose lives were lost.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board proclaim the week of September 11, 2002, as "Civic Participation Week" in Fairfax County. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

51. REMEMBRANCE WEEK (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly said that the Police Department has announced the "Ride To Remember." Bicycle riders will leave the World Trade Center site on September 8, 2002, and arrive at the Pentagon on September 11, 2002. The ride honors the public safety and military heroes killed in the Attack on America. Riders will represent a variety of law enforcement, fire and rescue, military and health care professionals. Participants will ride as a unit along the course of roughly 250 miles and each must raise $500 to participate. Money raised in this effort will benefit the Inova Regional Trauma Center at Fairfax Hospital.

Accordingly Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board proclaim the week of September 9, 2002, as "Remembrance Week" in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite participants in the "Ride To Remember" to appear before the Board to be recognized for their commitment to the memory of their fallen brothers and sisters. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

52. CASH PROFFERS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Connolly called the Board's attention to a letter dated June 11, 2002, to community leaders from two members of the School Board, Kaye Kory, Mason District Representative, and Christian N. Braunlich, Lee District Representative, regarding cash proffers. He expressed his concern about possible misleading information being presented.

Following a lengthy discussion, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to publicize the information provided on the County's website about the cash proffer issue. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Discussion continued briefly.

53. OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT REQUEST FOR THE OX HILL COMMUNITY (SULLY DISTRICT) (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey reported that he met with some residents of the Ox Hill community, which is located off Centreville Road, north of Route 50. This community is immediately adjacent to KSI's Chantilly Green project, which was approved by the Board two years ago. The residents of Ox Hill are unanimous in their decision to consolidate their property for the purpose of redevelopment. The Comprehensive Plan includes a recommendation that the land area be consolidated with the land area that is now being developed by KSI. Since the consolidation is not possible at this point, Supervisor Frey stated his belief that it is appropriate to direct staff to review the Comprehensive Plan for this area to evaluate the possibility of deleting the consolidation requirement.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to process an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment for the Ox Hill community. He noted that the applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the request in any way. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

 

54. NEPAL DAY (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey called the Board's attention to a letter from the Association of Nepalis in the Americas, Incorporated (ANA) and stated that the ANA is holding its twentieth annual convention at Westfields Marriott Conference Center from July 4-6, 2002, which he will attend on behalf of the Board. The ANA also requested that July 5 be declared Nepal Day. Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board declare July 5 as "Nepal Day" in Fairfax County and direct staff to prepare an appropriate proclamation for him to present on behalf of the Board. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

55. YOUTH CLUB SCHEDULING AT SCHOOLS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Frey referenced a letter from former Hunter Mill District Supervisor Robert B. Dix, Jr. to Chairman Hanley and School Board Chairman Stuart Gibson on coordination problems between the School Division and the County's Department of Community and Recreation Services on scheduling issues for youth clubs.

Following discussion, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a letter from Chairman Hanley to the School Board Chairman urging a meeting with Members of both Boards, the County Executive, and the School Superintendent to discuss this scheduling issue.

Following further discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to recirculate copies of the County Executive's response to Mr. Dix's letter. Without objection, it was so ordered.

The question was called on the motion, the second to which was inaudible, and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

56. SCHEDULING OF PUBLIC HEARINGS FOR REZONING APPLICATIONS RZ 2002-MV-002 AND RZ 2002-MV-018 AND PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 1996-MV-037-6 (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT) (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland said that Rezoning Applications RZ 2002 MV-002 and RZ 2002-MV-018 and Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 1996 MV-037-6 were advertised for a June 27, 2002, Planning Commission public hearing. The Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) just discovered that the advertisement for Rezoning Application RZ 2002-MV-002 (rezoning from the PDC District to the PRM District) was properly advertised, but the advertisement for the corresponding final development plan was inadvertently omitted.

Noting that staff immediately corrected the situation and readvertised the applications for the July 10, 2002, Planning Commission public hearing, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on July 22, 2002, for Rezoning Applications RZ 2002-MV-002 and RZ 2002-MV-018 and Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 1996-MV-037-6. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

57. EXPEDITED AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING REQUESTED FOR CAPITAL KIDS, INCORPORATED (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT) (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter regarding the daycare facility at Saint James Episcopal Church that Capital Kids, Incorporated has operated in the Mount Vernon District for several years. As a result of the planned remodeling of the church, the day care provider must vacate its current space in March of 2003.

A lease has been signed for space in the Woodlawn Shopping Center not far from the site of its current operation. That space was most recently used for a post office. Because the shopping center lies in the C-6 district, the applicant will need a special exception before it can establish a day care center there.

Supervisor Hyland stated that the daycare has found an interim site. In order for Capital Kids to provide uninterrupted child care services in the Woodlawn area of the Mount Vernon District, he moved that the Board direct staff to process the soon-to-be-submitted special exception application for Capital Kids, Incorporated on an expedited basis and that any site plan which may be required for the facility be processed concurrently with the special exception application. He 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 the land use application in any way. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

58. INTENT TO DEFER PUBLIC HEARING (LEE DISTRICT) (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman announced his intent to defer, at the appropriate time later in the meeting, the public hearing on Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 88-L-041 until July 1, 2002, at 3 p.m.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, this public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#65.)

 

59. OFF-SITE SIGNS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that the current Zoning Ordinance allows for the use of off-site freestanding signs in the Springfield Commercial Revitalization District (CRD). These signs are to identify geographic areas in the Commercial Revitalization area and are limited to 25 square feet and 8 feet in height. Banners, identifying district-wide events are also allowed. Two signs, meeting the Zoning Ordinance requirement, were recently erected in Springfield. While the signs were appropriate for pedestrian use, the small text size and low height made it impractical for visibility from vehicular traffic.

Supervisor Kauffman said that in working with the Central-Springfield Area Revitalization Council, several locations for larger off-site freestanding signs have been identified, primarily along the higher speed roads and interstate ramps. These signs are being referred to as gateway signs. The gateway signs would be higher and have larger text to increase visibility to vehicular traffic. Separate freestanding signs that meet the conditions of the current Zoning Ordinance would be used on the lower speed roads and areas more suited for pedestrian traffic.

The proposed gateway signs would have the following characteristics:

Supervisor Kauffman noted that the use of these gateway signs is not allowed by the current Zoning Ordinance, therefore, a Zoning Ordinance amendment is required. Accordingly, he moved that the Board add the Springfield CRD Sign Zoning Ordinance amendments to the 2002 Zoning Ordinance Amendment Work Program, subject to vote by the Development Process Committee chaired by Supervisor Frey. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Frey asked to amend the motion to include this proposed amendment into a comprehensive review of the sign ordinance as a Priority One item, and this was accepted.

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