40. DULLES RAPID TRANSIT PROJECT (Tape 7)

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) has released its Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Dulles Corridor Rapid Transit Project and has scheduled public hearings on the EIS in late July. All of the build alternatives for Bus Rapid Transit and/or metrorail being proposed by WMATA may create substantial impacts on the residential communities surrounding these transportation facilities. There are several residential communities in the vicinity of this project that are expected to experience increased noise and vibration impacts, as well as increased traffic.

Supervisor Mendelsohn expressed concern about the neighborhoods near the West Falls Church Metro Station, which is proposed to accommodate 26 additional rail cars at its Service and Inspection Yard. He said that he is particularly concerned about the impact of the Service Inspection Yard on homes in the Lemon Road community. Rail cars entering and leaving the yard at late night and early morning hours are a source of increased noise, loud horns and squealing breaks. The project team has identified this impact, but has not specifically proposed any mitigation strategies.

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that the current noise abatement recommendations for properties near Hallcrest Heights include a three-foot tall parapet along the aerial rail sections next to residential areas. It is clear that this may be insufficient to reduce the noise generated by the meeting of rails and wheels on a curve.

Supervisor Mendelsohn said that in addition, significant noise and traffic impacts may be caused by the proposed 2000 car parking structure on Route 7 at Tysons Corner. The current proposals do not address the noise impact that could reasonably be expected from increased traffic, which already exceeds levels predicted in 1981.

Therefore, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to communicate the concerns detailed above regarding noise and traffic impacts of the Dulles Corridor Rapid Transit Project to WMATA staff and to request a written response from WMATA addressing these concerns and plans for appropriate mitigation efforts. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion.

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

41. SUPERVISOR MENDELSOHN ANNOUNCES HE WILL NOT SEEK RE-ELECTION (Tape 7)

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that he will not be seeking re-election as the Dranesville District Supervisor.

There was a brief discussion.

42. PEDESTRIAN SAFETY (Tape 7)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting the Board discussed another pedestrian safety issue. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#14.)

Jointly with Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman said that pedestrian safety is a significant and growing concern along the Richmond Highway corridor.

Supervisor Kauffman noted that earlier in the day the Board took action to implement a pedestrian safety program and pedestrian improvement plan to begin addressing such significant safety issues Countywide.

To further assist these efforts along what has proven to be the County's most dangerous corridor, and jointly with Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a Consideration item regarding the transfer of the remaining balances in the Fiscal Year 2002 Lee and Mount Vernon District office budgets to County Fund 307, Sidewalk Construction. These funds could then be appropriated to projects for pedestrian safety along the Richmond Highway. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

Supervisor Kauffman noted that contained in the written Board Matter are letters of support from Captain Shawn Barrett, Commander of the Mount Vernon Police Station and Mr. Dave Lyons of the "Safe Crossings Campaign." Both the Mount Vernon Police and the citizen-led "Safe Crossings Campaign" have been instrumental in promoting pedestrian safety along the highway corridor and seeking solutions to this important issue.

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

43. WAIVER OF FEES FOR USE OF THE SHOWMOBILE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova said that on Tuesday, August 6, 2002, the Middleridge community will be holding a National Night Out in the Middleridge Park, off Governor Yeardly Drive in Fairfax. The neighborhood is planning a number of activities including games for the children and a live concert. They have arranged for the County's Showmobile so that they will have a stage and electricity.

To help the Middleridge community with this safety-oriented activity, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board waive the fees for use of the County's Showmobile. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

44. AUDIT OF SCHOOL SPENDING/PROGRAMS (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova said that last month the Board of Supervisors joined the School Board in a joint discussion about the County's economic situation, revenue projections for the current and next fiscal year, and State and federal policies and potential legislation that could affect Fairfax County schools. They also engaged in a brief discussion with individuals from School Match who were interested in performing an audit of the Fairfax County Public Schools. Marty Irving, Chairman of the Schools' Foundation, said at that time that the Foundation would consider participating in the funding of such an audit (whoever performed it), but would only do so knowing that the Board of Supervisors concurred with the scope of the evaluation.

Supervisor Bulova noted that whatever organization conducts the audit, she agrees with the Foundation that the study include an evaluation of issues/programs/areas that the Board of Supervisors would like to see examined. She said that she has agreed to solicit from Board Members a list of items that the Board would like to have included in the scope of an audit. Through informal discussions with some Board Members, she assembled a list that includes the following things:

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to forward the questions to the School Board as issues of the Board of Supervisors' request to be included in the scope of an evaluation of school programs and funding. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor McConnell referred to the following question: "Is the County providing special education to children way beyond what is required for those with physical or mental disabilities?" She pointed out that federal law mandates that special education must be customized.

Supervisor Bulova clarified the question as follows: Does Fairfax County exceed the federal requirements in providing special education to children way beyond what is required for those with physical or mental disabilities? And, if so, by how much? Does the County go beyond the children who would be eligible under that law?

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to design the questions in essay form. Without objection, it was so ordered.

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

 

45. INTRODUCTION OF BENJAMIN CLICK, INTERN (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman introduced Benjamin Click, who is participating in the County Executive's student internship program. He added that Mr. Click attends West Springfield High School.

46. QUESTIONS REGARDING THE COUNTY'S RECYCLING PROGRAM (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross said that recently several constituents have been faced with cleaning out their homes due to preparations for sale or as the result of a fire. In some cases, these are situations that border on hoarding, so that families are faced with excessive amounts of trash or items for bulk pick-up, which can remain at curbside for weeks awaiting space on a truck.

Supervisor Gross noted that if residents have private garbage collections, they can rent a roll-off from their hauler to help deal with the problem. However, if they are in a sanitary service district, as many Mason District residents are, the situation may be more difficult. The following questions arise:

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that this issue be referred to the County Executive for response and recommendations. Without objection, it was so ordered.

47. REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR CAPTAIN DANNY BICKMAN (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross said that Fire Captain Danny Bickman recently retired after 35 years of service to the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department. Captain Bickman's outstanding record is well-known, and his leadership in the Urban Search and Rescue Team is exemplary.

In recognition of his 35 years of service to the people of Fairfax County, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to invite Captain Bickman to be honored at a future Board meeting. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Kauffman and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

48. INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 01-M-041 (KFC OF AMERICA, INCORPORATED (MASON DISTRICT) (Tape 7)

NV:nv

53. STREETLIGHTS (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hudgins said that she was recently contacted by a constituent concerned with the lack of oversight that Dominion Virginia Power maintains over the streetlights they are charged with maintaining in the County. In accordance with its agreement with Fairfax County, Virginia Power requires that the company be notified by an outside party of specific outages in order to replace the bulb and repair the outage. This can cause problems and lapses in the lighting of streets when constituents are not vigilant enough to report all outages. Streetlights in Fairfax County play a critical role in the safety of drivers and pedestrians who use the roads after dark.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff in the Office of Public Affairs to publicize information about the streetlight agreement between Fairfax County and Dominion Virginia Power, particularly the importance for residents to call Dominion Virginia Power at 1-888-667-3000 to report streetlight outages. Additionally, staff must inform residents that the current agreement with Dominion Virginia Power holds that the County will receive bill credits if the work is not completed in a timely fashion.

Supervisor Gross noted that the pole number must be reported for streetlight outages.

Following a brief discussion, without objection, the request was so ordered.

54. DOG PARK (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hudgins noted that on July 13, 2002, the Hunter Mill District added another dog park with an opening in Vienna.

57. NEW STAFF MEMBER (Tape 8)

Supervisor Connolly introduced and welcomed Brent Krasner, a new staff member who will be handling transportation issues in the Providence District Office.

58. FAIRFAX COUNTY SETS THE TELEWORK STANDARD FOR THE REGION AS JURISDICTIONS CONFRONT IMPLICATIONS OF COURT RULING ON NON-COMPLIANCE WITH ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY'S (EPA) AIR QUALITY STANDARDS (Tape 8)

Supervisor Connolly referred to his written Board Matters which noted that a recent court ruling has put the Metropolitan Washington region in immediate non-compliance with EPA air quality standards. Of all behavioral changes that can be made – including the highly effective park and ride stations – telework has been found to be the single most effective measure in reducing ground level ozone. He asserted that the County has one of the best local telework programs in the region and he wanted to highlight what the County is doing which may serve as a model for other municipalities. He also indicated his belief that the region is losing some momentum at the local level. He noted that the County hosted one of the most successful telework conferences in the country, the Washington Area Conference on Telework (WACOT), cosponsored by the County, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG), and the International Association and Conference on Telework (ITAC) and held in the Government Center on October 24, 2000.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct Carol Stuart Goldberg, manager of Fairfax County’s Telework Expansion Project, to appear before the Board in September and report on the state of telework in Fairfax County government. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board formally endorse another WACOT to be held in 2003 and that this endorsement formally be transmitted to COG.

Supervisor McConnell asked to amend the motion to include the Economic Advisory Committee in the conference and this was accepted.

Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, as amended, and it carried by unanimous vote.

59. CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY SEATS (Tape 8)

Noting that he shares space with Fire Station 30 and with reference to his written Board Matter, Supervisor Connolly said many citizens come to the fire station and even to his office requesting assistance with the correct installation of child safety seats. His office discovered that there are many different programs and there is confusion among the citizens as to where and when to go for assistance.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to review the present system of providing child car seat inspections with the goal of offering a comprehensive one-stop information point. A component of this review should be ways to encourage the private sector to expand the inspections also. Without objection, it was so ordered.

60. UNITED WAY (Tape 8)

Supervisor Connolly said that recently there have been a number of articles appearing in the local press concerning financial accounting practices employed by the United Way of the National Capital Area. Questions have been raised concerning the amount of money taken out for overhead as well as whether local donations are subjected to what is euphemistically called "a double haircut" – that is, overhead costs deducted by the local United Way and then a second time by the parent or regional United Way. Since donations are funneled through the Fairfax-Falls Church United Way in order to reach the United Way of the National Capital Area, he expressed some concerns about the possibility of a "double haircut." With Fairfax County Government and Fairfax County Public School employee contributions representing a significant portion of the monies collected in the annual campaign, he asserted that it is imperative that employees have factual information regarding the ultimate disposition of their donations.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to report on the manner in which donations to the United Way are handled. Answers should be provided for the following questions:

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley asked to amend the motion to invite representatives of both the local and/or national capital council to address those questions, rather than the County Executive. This was accepted.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, as amended, and it carried by unanimous vote.

61. PROPOSED LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE MEETING DATES (Tape 8)

Supervisor Connolly provided the Board with the schedule of Legislative Committee meeting dates and other related dates. The first committee meeting will be Friday, September 13, at 4 p.m.

62. DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT (HUD) CATCH 22 (Tape 8)

Supervisor Connolly said that a constituent who is a resident of Yorkville Cooperative, an affordable housing cooperative in Providence District, contacted his office because he was recently told that he is ineligible for the County’s First Time Homebuyer Program. According to the constituent, he was notified that he is ineligible because he lives in a cooperative, despite the fact that he does not own the unit and has no right to sell it. According to County staff, individuals, even if they receive Section 8 certificates, are defined by the Present Ownership Interest Statue as "tenant shareholders with an interest," because they may claim mortgage interest on their taxes. Some residents may not be aware of such a deduction, and those that are, seldom claim it because it is usually so small. If this constituent were to move out into another rental property (one that is not a cooperative), HUD regulations say he has to wait three years before he would be able to reapply for the First Time Homebuyer Program. With overcrowded shelters and affordable housing rapidly diminishing the County needs to encourage those in affordable housing to become homeowners.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to work with staff, the Housing Authority, and HUD to explore initiatives, including legislation, that would allow Section 8 residents of affordable housing cooperatives to participate in the First Time Homebuyer Program, and report his findings. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

63. INDIRECT RATE INCREASES AND COX COMMUNICATIONS (Tape 8)

Supervisor Connolly said that several constituents have contacted his office regarding Cox Communications' digital upgrade. According to his constituents, although Cox advertised that it would not raise rates on its analog service, it has indirectly increased the price by forcing them to get digital. Supervisor Connolly said that his constituents have advised him that before the digital conversion, they received up to four premium channels, but after the conversion, if they wish to stay with analog, the four premium channels are taken away. If they wished to continue with their old cable lineup, that may include the four premium channels, individuals are forced to purchase digital, resulting in a price increase.

Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to investigate whether this "indirect rate hike" constitutes a violation of the franchise agreement or any other Consumer Protection standards, or the pledge Cox representatives made to the Board not to raise its rates, and advise the Board what if, any action, might be taken. Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the Board took action regarding another issue with Cox Communications. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#93.)

64. TEN FAIRFAX COUNTY RESIDENTS HONORED BY A&E NETWORK FOR EXTRAORDINARY COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTIONS (Tape 8)

Supervisor Connolly referred to his written Board Matter which announced a recent event that honored an impressive group of Fairfax County residents. Ten individuals, including former chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Jean Packard, were honored this month for their extraordinary contributions to this community at a ceremony in Tysons Galleria sponsored by A&E Television Network. The event was part of A&E’s "Biography 15 Years Celebration Tour," a 10-city nationwide tour. Ms. Packard was honored for a lifetime of community work, especially her formidable contribution to environmental quality in this region. Other honorees included the following persons who were involved in the rescue and relief efforts at the Pentagon following the September 11 terrorist attack:

Also honored were:

 

65. LORTON CELEBRATION (Tape 8)

Supervisor Connolly expressed his concern about the possible scheduling of the Lorton celebration for August 24 because many persons may not be available at that time. Discussion ensued about the scheduling challenges, with input from Merni Fitzgerald, Director, Office of Public Affairs.

66. MOUNT VERNON COUNCIL PROPOSES INCREASE IN FINES (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland said that at its meeting on June 26, 2002, the Mount Vernon Council of Citizens Associations approved a resolution requesting the Board to increase fines for drivers convicted of failure to yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing a street or highway as follows:

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to staff for review and recommendation to the Board. Without objection, it was so ordered.

67. RECOMMENDATION FROM THE WETLANDS BOARD (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland said that he has received two proposals which are contained in his written Board Matters from the Fairfax County Wetlands Board requesting that they be included in the 2003 Legislative Program to the General Assembly.

Supervisor Hyland noted that one proposal involves wetlands mitigation and the other request repealing exemption for State and local government wetlands projects, i.e., require permits from wetlands boards.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to the Board’s Legislative Committee for review and recommendation. Without objection, it was so ordered.

68. REQUEST FOR CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR SKYVIEW PARK (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter regarding Skyview Park which was a request to have the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) concurrently process the preliminary plat, site plan, and subdivision plat for the Skyview project. Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the staff of the DPWES to concurrently process the preliminary plat, site plan, and final subdivision plat for Skyview Park. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Frey, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

69. LETTER DATED JULY 9, 2002, TO THE NATIONAL CAPITAL PLANNING COMMISSION (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland said that in reviewing staff’s comments addressed to Mr. William Dowd pertaining to the Sub Area Master Plan Update for Fort Belvoir’s Regional Community Support Center, he observed that the letter was signed by staff and in the first paragraph it indicates that the comments contained in the letter ". . . represent the views of County staff and do not necessarily represent positions of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors."

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to resubmit this letter with a cover letter from the Board under the Chairman’s signature indicating that these staff comments have been fully endorsed and represent the position of the Board. Without objection, it was so ordered.

70. REQUEST TO RECOGNIZE DAVIS INDUSTRIES (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland said contained in his written Board Matters are photographs of Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department (FRD) personnel as they practice cutting into cars on the property of Davis Industries to become expert at retrieving accident victims in an effort to save lives. These practice sessions are held regularly at Davis Industries, which makes its facilities available to FRD practice teams.

Supervisor Hyland said that in addition to helping firefighters hone their skills in this practical manner, Davis Industries has generously donated to the FRD’s efforts for burned children. Davis Industries is one of ten locations that the FRD uses for collecting donated aluminum cans for our program of Aluminum Cans for Burnt Children. In addition, Davis Industries has made donations to burned children. In 1995, when the Oklahoma bombing occurred, Davis Industries made a dollar for dollar match of $50,000 for the children of Oklahoma City.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives of Davis Industries to appear before the Board for recognition of their meaningful and generous support of FRD’s efforts regarding both the use of their facilities as well as their help with the burned children campaign. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Frey, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

 

71. REQUEST FOR STAFF TO REVIEW THE CODE OF THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX, CHAPTER 6 (WEAPONS), SECTION 6-1-2.1 (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland said that he received an email from Ms. Kathy Corish in which she indicated that her niece received a BB-gun for Christmas, which according to the current Code of the County of Fairfax she has been unable to use because she is in the "wrong part of the County." Also contained in his written Board Matters is an email from Mr. Frederic Meeker (the purchaser of the 50 acres) in which he challenges the constitutionality of prohibiting the use of BB-guns because he has been informed that the property in question is in the "wrong part of the County."

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board refer this matter to staff for review and recommendation as to whether or not to amend the Code of the County of Fairfax to accommodate discharging BB-guns based on the size of an undeveloped parcel. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

72. TRAILS IN OCCOQUAN (Tape 8)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed the Occoquan Watershed. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#6.)
