Following discussion, Chairman Hanley clarified that the review would include the costs associated with the program.

Following further discussion, Supervisor Gross asked to amend the request to direct staff to include this item in the agenda of the Board's next Revitalization Policy Committee meeting scheduled for February 10, 2003, and distribute to the committee members the countywide report on the costs.

Following input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, without objection, the request, as amended, was so ordered.

 

27. PHOTO RED LIGHT INFRASTRUCTURE (Tape 5)

Chairman Hanley stated that she had discovered that the County must implement the Photo Red Light Program in a different manner from other jurisdictions with the program. Other jurisdictions are using the existing infrastructure (conduit and poles) already associated with the traffic signals, yet the County must make a separate installation. County installation costs have ranged from $25,000 to $38,000 per location.

Chairman Hanley noted that the Photo Red Light Program was enacted as a safety program and she asserted that its operation could be more cost effective if existing infrastructure could be utilized. Accordingly, she moved that the Board direct staff to communicate the Board's concerns to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Commissioner and request that VDOT work with the Department of Transportation to:

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

28. RECOGNITION OF CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE BEARS IN CRUISERS PROGRAM (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly recounted the story of the teddy bear, named for President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt. Supervisor Connolly noted that County Police cruisers are equipped with a wide range of tools needed by officers in the performance of their duties. Many cruisers are equipped with teddy bears to assist an officer trying to calm and comfort a child during a difficult situation. The bear is a gift, something for the child to hold onto and take away.

Supervisor Connolly stated that the May Department Stores Company, owner of Hecht’s and Lord and Taylor at Tysons Corner Center, recently celebrated the one hundredth anniversary of the teddy bear. As part of the company’s commitment to children and children's charities, it donated 60 bears to the McLean District Police Station for use in police cruisers.

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives of the May Company, Tysons Corner Center, and the McLean District Police Station to appear before the Board to be recognized for their contributions to the "Bears in Cruisers" program. Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

29. INTENT TO DEFER PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING REVISIONS TO THE CHESAPEAKE BAY PRESERVATION AREA DESIGNATION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that the public hearing on proposed amendments to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapters 101 (Subdivision Ordinance), 112 (Zoning Ordinance), 118 (Chesapeake Bay Preservation Ordinance), and to the Public Facilities Manual, scheduled for 4:30 p.m., will be deferred because the Planning Commission has not made its recommendation.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, this public hearing was formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#68.)

30. PUBLIC HEARING ON THE ENVIRONMENT (Tape 5)

Supervisor Mendelsohn announced that the Environmental Quality Advisory Council will hold its rescheduled public hearing on the environment on Thursday, February 20, 2003, at 7:30 p.m. in Conference Rooms 2 and 3 of the Government Center. The originally scheduled public hearing was postponed because of snow.

Accordingly, Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to publicize the event and that persons desiring to be placed on the speakers list should call the Department of Planning and Zoning at 703-324-1210. Without objection, it was so ordered.

31. 2003 COMMUNITIES THAT CARE YOUTH SURVEY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Mendelsohn raised the issue of the 2003 Communities that Care Youth Survey. He noted that the School Board has a pending motion on this survey which it will discuss at its meeting scheduled for February 13, 2003. With reference to the Board's previous discussion on this topic and his discussions with the County Executive, he noted that there is now agreement on restructuring the questions regarding sexual activity.

Following brief input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board direct staff to put the survey on hold until the annual budget timeframe to allow time for the:

He further moved that no survey be conducted until positive action is taken by the School Board and the Board of Supervisors to authorize it after their review of the aforementioned three areas. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

Following discussion, with input from Mr. Griffin; Mark Searle, President, Fairfax Partnership for Youth, Incorporated; and Mary Shaughnessy, Director of Student Services, Fairfax County Public Schools, Supervisor Hyland moved a substitute motion to defer action until February 24, 2003. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which FAILED by a recorded vote of five, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn voting "AYE."

The question was called on the main motion, which FAILED by a recorded vote of seven, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn voting "AYE."

Supervisor Mendelsohn asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Attorney to determine whether the use of this survey violates Title XX, Chapter 31, of the United States Code and to share his findings with the School Board Attorney. Without objection, it was so ordered.

32. LEAF COLLECTION (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross reminded the Board that the County provides leaf collection, for an additional fee, for about 19,000 households. Some of those households are in Mason District and her office has received many complaints about the timing of leaf collection, inaccurate signage, and streets or areas that were missed in the planned three sweeps of each area.

Supervisor Gross noted that despite some County initiatives to improve service, the County's leaf collectors are dependent on the whims of Mother Nature. Leaves fell much later than forecast and then heavy, early snows slowed the pickup. Leaves were still being collected last week, nearly a month later than usual. She said that residents who are paying for leaf collection service are upset, often with good reason.

Therefore, to ensure that leaf collection service meets the expectations of constituents, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the County Executive to review the current leaf collection program and make recommendations for improvements for the 2003 leaf season. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

Supervisor Kauffman suggested that staff review options for flexibility to base pickups on when leaves have fallen in certain areas.

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

33. GEESEPEACE (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross explained that GeesePeace is a public private partnership that started in Mason District four years ago to humanely eliminate the nuisance aspect of Canada geese in Fairfax County. From its small beginning at Lake Barcroft, GeesePeace has spread to other communities across the country, including New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. Fairfax County remains its best and most successful demonstration. Approximately 4000 fewer goslings have hatched since GeesePeace began its effort, in conjunction with the Park Authority and the County's wildlife biologist, to train volunteers to identify and locate nesting areas, treat the eggs, and interact safely with Canada geese.

Supervisor Gross said that goose nesting season is approaching, and it is important for more volunteers to join the effort. Two free training sessions are scheduled: Saturday, March 8, from 2 until 4 p.m., and Monday, March 10, from 9 until 11 a.m. Both sessions will be held at the Audrey Moore Recreation Center at Wakefield Park.

Therefore, in an effort to publicize these free training sessions more widely, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to include the GeesePeace training opportunities in its electronic and print notices. Without objection, it was so ordered.

34. EMPLOYEES ON ACTIVE DUTY (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross stated that in October 2001, the Board authorized assistance to County employees who were called to active duty with the National Guard/Military Reserve. The assistance included a leave transfer program, continuation of the employer contribution to life and health insurance if the employee was on leave without pay, and a pay differential if the military pay salary was less than County pay. Fortunately, only 38 County employee/reservists were called to active duty in that first year.

Supervisor Gross said that as the White House continues to prepare for war, the number of County employees who may be activated for wartime military service is likely to increase. While the County Executive has indicated continuation of County assistance unless otherwise directed, she moved that the Board reaffirm its commitment to maintaining the programs that aid County employees who are called to active duty. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

35. RADLEY ACURA SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION (MASON DISTRICT) (Tape 5)

Supervisor Gross announced that a Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 85-M-086 has been filed for a vehicle sales, rental, and ancillary service establishment for Radley Acura on Columbia Pike in the Baileys Crossroads area. As part of that case, the applicant has also requested vacation of a portion of the frontage right-of-way currently used as a service drive. The service drive itself will be removed with the Columbia Pike streetscape improvements.

Supervisor Gross said that while research is ongoing, it appears that the County owns the underlying fee for the area to be vacated, which would require the Board to concur in the filing of the application. Therefore, erring on the side of caution, she moved that the Board concur in the filing of this Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 85-M-086 on the area of right-of-way to be vacated. The applicants have been informed and understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Connolly, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

36. BRADDOCK DISTRICT'S FIRST COMMUNITY DIALOG ON TRANSPORTATION AND LAND USE (BRADDOCK DISTRICT) (Tape 6)

Supervisor Bulova reported that the Braddock District hosted its first Community Dialog on Transportation and Land Use on January 22, 2003, and she distributed a packet of materials to Board Members that was handed out at the Community Dialog. She said that the first meeting was an open discussion among the members and over 40 individuals attended, many of whom signed up for the full nine-session series. Supervisor Bulova said that the first discussion had to do with why people voted for or against the sales tax for transportation referendum and she will share the meeting summaries with Board Members. She also reviewed some packet items that included the subjects that are scheduled to be discussed at the meetings that will follow and a list of guest speakers who will serve as panelists. Supervisor Bulova said that the first part of each meeting will be devoted to education and the second to transportation. She said that the packet also includes "Rules for Participation and Voting" and that she will be reporting on the Community Dialog's progress.

37. RECONSIDERATION OF THE BOARD'S ACTION REGARDING REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2002-SP-004 AND SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 2002-SP-032 (SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT) (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell reminded Board Members that at its meeting held on January 6, 2003, the Board held a public hearing in the matter of Rezoning Application RZ 2002-SP-004 filed by Equity Homes and concurrent with Special Exception Application SE 2002-SP-032 and subsequently voted to approve the two applications subject to proffers and development conditions, respectively. Following that action by the Board, it was discovered that proper notice as required by the Zoning Ordinance had not been given to an adjacent property owner.

In light of that discovery, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board:

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

Chairman Hanley expressed concern for the number of re-advertisements needed since the beginning of this year.

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

38. ADVENTURES IN DRIVING - SURVIVE THE RIDE (Tape 7)

Jointly with Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor McConnell said that as the Virginia Department of Transportation's (VDOT) Director of Communications for the Springfield Interchange Construction Project, Steve Titunik was well aware of the safety challenges to experienced drivers, and especially to newly minted high school drivers. To address the needs of young drivers, Mr. Titunik and Ms. Jennifer Finstein of VDOT's Crash Course Program for high school students wrote a safety guide aimed at young drivers between the ages of 14 and 16. Adventures in Driving - Survive the Ride, a handbook for teens aimed at reducing the high accident and fatality rate in this age group was released by VDOT on Friday, December 6, 2002.

Supervisor McConnell said that this handbook is now used in the Fairfax County Public Schools Crash Course driver education program. The guide was developed with the support of Fairfax County high school students and is written in language teenagers can relate to. It contains real-life photographs, statistics, and tips on handling driving situations in all kinds of weather. Several Fairfax County driver education teachers and the State Police also developed content for the guide. Adventures in Driving - Survive the Ride is proactive. It gives students information they need to safely navigate Virginia's roads and teaches them about the real dangers, risks, and consequences of driving, before bad driving habits are established.

Jointly Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to invite Ms. Finstein and Mr. Titunik to appear before the Board at a future meeting for formal recognition for all their efforts associated with this project. Without objection, it was so ordered.

39. DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES (DMV) LINES (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell expressed concern about the length of time citizens are waiting in line at the DMV.

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to review the issue. Without objection, it was so ordered.

A brief discussion ensued.

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

40. REVIEW OF EMPLOYEE TIME REPORTING PROCEDURES (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that at the January 6, 2003, meeting the Board was presented with an innovative and efficient way of administering the personal tax payment process. There was a brief discussion on the efficiencies of other systems, in particular the time reporting process. She said that at the time she had mentioned the redundancy of the time reporting system, whereby employees must access the time reporting system to confirm regular time and/or input deviations. Office personnel must then lock the data, after which the department coordinator must confirm and submit to payroll. Payroll reports are generated every two weeks for filing. Supervisor Hudgins said that this process seems outdated and cumbersome based on today's technology and that many large corporations have gone to strictly reporting deviations with each employee being accountable for the accuracy of data being reported.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review the existing time reporting procedures to determine if there are ways to improve the efficiency of the existing system. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to the Department of Human Resources for review and that it report its findings in the form of an Agenda Item at the Board meeting scheduled for February 10, 2003. Without objection, it was so ordered.

41. RECOGNITION OF THE EDUCATION RETIREMENT HOUSING CORPORATION (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Education Retirement Housing Corporation of Virginia is celebrating 25 years of providing quality, affordable housing for seniors and physically and mentally challenged citizens of the County. The Fairfax Education Retirement Housing Corporation is dedicated to providing quality of life housing for seniors and mentally and physically challenged citizens. The residents have access to a variety of group and individual activities such as a fully current library, arts and crafts activities, and personal grooming facilities. Tysons Towers offers something for everyone through classes, specially organized events, and celebratory parties that are organized through a full-time social director. The building provides a 24-hour desk and management staff focusing on all the needs of its residents. Tysons Towers is a federal and state subsidized facility.

In recognition of 25 years of providing quality and affordable housing to seniors and the physically and mentally challenged citizens in the County, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the representatives of the Fairfax Education Retirement Housing Corporation to appear before the Board for recognition for their quarter century of providing affordable housing. Without objection, it was so ordered.

42. INFORMATION FOR CITIZENS NEEDING ASSISTANCE (Tape 6)

Supervisor Hudgins said that Ellen Graves of her staff encountered several individuals coming to the Hunter Mill District office looking for coats of which they have found that there is a growing need. As a result of advertising in the newspaper for coats for needy individuals, the Hunter Woods District office has been inundated with coats and the staff has been working in partnership with Reston Interfaith for distribution. Supervisor Hudgins thanked all of the citizens who responded to the request by contributing coats.

Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to post information and the names of charities in the County that directly help the homeless so that citizens will know where to go for assistance. Without objection, it was so ordered.

43. MOUNT VERNON'S SIXTEENTH ANNUAL TOWN MEETING (Tape 7)

Supervisor Hyland said that Mount Vernon's sixteenth annual town meeting held at the Mount Vernon High School's Little Theatre attracted more than 400 people from the Mount Vernon vicinity.

Supervisor Hyland expressed his appreciation to panelists and guests - Chairman Hanley; Lee District Supervisor Kauffman; Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive; and Edward Long, Chief Financial Officer.

44. WAIVER OF THE FEES FOR THE SHOWMOBILE (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT) (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland said that the Martha Washington Community Library has planned its annual event called Diversity Day. This program started three years ago as a way to celebrate and showcase the richness of the community's growing diversity. The Library holds the event in April, which is Diversity Month. Planning for the Fourth Annual Diversity Day to be held in April 2003 is already underway. The date for the program is April 26, 2003.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board:

Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

45. REQUEST THAT TRAIL BE NAMED IN HONOR OF MR. WARREN B. JOHNSON (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT) (Tapes 7-8)

Supervisor Hyland said that the Mount Vernon Manor Citizens' Association (MVMCA) has requested that a portion of Fairfax County's trail system be named for Warren B. Johnson, a longtime contributor to Fairfax County and the Mount Vernon community. MVMCA ask that the portion of the trail system be named the Warren B Johnson Memorial Trail.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board refer this to staff for follow-up and coordination with the MVMCA president in the hope that the Warren B. Johnson Memorial Trail can be dedicated in the spring of 2003. Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

46. REQUEST TO WAIVE FEES FOR THE LORTON AMERICAN LEGION POST 162, INCORPORATED (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT) (Tape 8)

Supervisor Hyland said the Lorton American Legion Post 162, Incorporated has requested a waiver of the fees to apply for a special permit application. He added that the proposal is to locate one 10' x 32' trailer and place it on its adjacent parking lot. The cost of Fairfax County's fees are high and the trailer cost barely exceeds these fees.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board support a waiver of the special permit application fee and other fees that may occur. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Following input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

47. ATHLETIC TRAINING FACILITIES ASSOCIATED WITH A PUBLIC USE (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey noted that last week the Fairfax County Park Authority revised its application on Quinn Farm property to delete DC United as a partner to its development proposal. After months of discussion, it was clear that no agreement could be reached with DC United that would have provided a significant public benefit to the County.

Supervisor Frey said that the Park Authority will continue to process the 2232 public facility application to request nine lighted, irrigated rectangular ball fields on the Quinn Farm and the public hearing will be held in the next couple of months.

Supervisor Frey pointed out that the Board authorized staff to prepare an amendment to the Code of the County of Fairfax, Chapter 112 (Zoning Ordinance), that proposed to permit by special exception athletic training facilities associated with a public use in the R-C District. It appears that this amendment is no longer necessary.

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct the Zoning Administration Division, Department of Planning and Zoning, to withdraw the proposed amendment. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

 

48. BUSY KIDS CHILD CARE CENTER (Tape 8)

Supervisor Frey said that Busy Kids Child Care Center is operating at 13880 Metrotech Drive in the Sully Place Shopping Center under Special Permit Application SP 94-Y-068. The operator has leased adjacent space within the shopping center and desires to expand the enrollment. As a result of the Zoning Ordinance amendment relating to child care centers, this site now requires a special exception. Due to circumstances beyond the applicant's control the special exception application submission has been delayed. Staff has indicated that it is possible to process the application on an expedited basis due to the limited scope of the review.

Accordingly, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board:

The applicant understands that this motion does not relieve them of any obligation, ordinance, or standards, and will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

49. INTENT TO DEFER PUBLIC HEARINGS (Tape 6)

Supervisor Kauffman announced his intent later in the meeting, at the appropriate time, to defer the following public hearings until February 24, 2003:

(NOTE: Later in the meeting the public hearings were formally deferred. See Clerk's Summary Item CL#57.)

50. PUBLIC HEARING FOR PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA C-448-27 (LEE DISTRICT) (Tape 8)

Supervisor Kauffman said that Kingstowne Shopping Center I, LP has filed an application to amend the proffers to allow for more than one eating establishment in Building D of the Kingstowne Shopping Center. Current proffers limit the number of eating establishments in Building D to one. There is support in the community for this amendment and there will be no physical changes to the site.

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on April 28, 2003, at 3:30 p.m. on Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA C-448-27 by Kingstowne Shopping Center I, LP. This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by unanimous vote.

51. RECESS/CLOSED SESSION (Tape 8)

At 1 p.m., Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board recess and go into closed session for discussion and consideration of matters enumerated in Virginia Code Section 2.1-344 and listed in the agenda for this meeting as follows:

(a) Discussion or consideration of personnel matters pursuant to Virginia Code § 2.2-3711(A)(1).

(c) Consultation with legal counsel and briefings by staff members or consultants pertaining to actual or probable litigation, and consultation with legal counsel regarding specific legal matters requiring the provision of legal advice by such counsel pursuant to Virginia Code § 2.2-3711(A)(7).
