28. AMERICAN RED CROSS MONTH (Tape 6)

Chairman Hanley stated that the Month of March is nationally recognized as American Red Cross Month. The National Capital Chapter of the American Red Cross has requested that the County recognize the "Together We Prepare" emergency preparedness campaign to encourage community awareness for disaster planning.

Therefore, Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the American Red Cross to appear before the Board at the March 10, 2003, meeting to receive a proclamation declaring March as "Red Cross Month" in Fairfax County. Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

31. CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF PLANS FOR REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2002-SP-033 (SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT) (Tape 7)

Supervisor McConnell said that pending Rezoning Application RZ 2002-SP-033 is a request to rezone four parcels of land along Braddock Road, tax map numbers 66-2(1))11, 12, 13, 14. The applicant has requested concurrent processing of the subdivision plan to ensure certain contractual obligations are met.

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board approve concurrent processing of the subdivision plan and engineering approvals associated with pending Rezoning Application RZ 2002-SP-033. This motion does not relieve the applicants from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of this application in any way. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

32. SPRINT PCS/APS REALTY AND EQUIPMENT COMPANY, LLC AND THE ANNANDALE VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT - PUBLIC FACILITIES APPLICATION 2232 M02-10 AND SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 2002-MA-020 (MASON DISTRICT) (Tape 7)

Supervisor Gross said that Sprint PCS and the Annandale Volunteer Fire Department have filed a special exception application for the property identified as Tax Map number 58-4((1))62. She added that this application has been heard by the Planning Commission and is scheduled to be heard by the Board on March 24, 2003. The applicant has been prepared for a February Board public hearing, but due to a scheduling error, has been delayed. To facilitate the process, the applicants have requested that the required minor site plan be reviewed concurrently while they await their new Board date.

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to permit processing of the minor site plan associated with this application concurrently. This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on the special exception application by the Board, and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

33. ERRORS IN VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION'S (VDOT) STREET NAME DATA BASE (Tape 7)

Supervisor Bulova noted that area residents are still digging out from the recent storm and forecasters are predicting more snow to come. She said that an important item to be added to the agenda is the problem with streets missing from the VDOT database.

Supervisor Bulova noted that she heard from a number of residents who called in their streets to VDOT and were told that their streets were not in the State system. For residents who have lived on these streets for 40 years and have had their streets plowed in the past, this news came as a shock. Residents' disbelief grew after they checked and confirmed that their streets have route numbers.

Supervisor Bulova said that in some cases, the name was entered incorrectly into VDOT's database. For example, Argonne was entered as Augonne. She referred to her written Board Matter and outlined other examples of errors in VDOT's system.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to work with VDOT to assist in updating and correcting the street list as soon as possible. Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley asked to amend the motion to direct staff to prepare a letter on behalf of the Board indicating that County staff will work with VDOT staff on this issue, and this was accepted.

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, the question was called on the motion, as amended, and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Mediation and training services are provided by more than 100 professionals who work with NVMS as mediators, trainers, facilitators, program designers, and project coordinators. NVMS has mediated more than 4500 cases and worked with many courts and federal agencies in the region to assist in the development, design, and/or operation of mediation programs.

Supervisor Bulova said that NVMS is committed to the idea that every problem is best resolved directly by the people who are affected. NVMS have provided to help individual citizens, courts, churches, schools, employers, tenants, and landlords in a manner affordable to everyone, without regard of ability to pay.

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to invite NVMS to appear before the Board on March 10, 2003, so that it can be recognized for its work in the community. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Supervisor Bulova said that March is officially Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Month in the State of Virginia, and will be recognized as such by the governor.

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to invite the Fairfax County ADR Program to appear before the Board on March 10, 2003, to receive a separate proclamation that recognizes March as Alternative Dispute Resolution Month. Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

Supervisor Hudgins briefly addressed the issue of new developments not in the VDOT system and still being under bond.

Supervisor Gross asked to amend the motion to include better coordination with the Police Department regarding snow removal, and this was accepted.

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

AFDC's current lease will terminate in December 2003, making it necessary for it to relocate to a new facility.

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to:

This motion does not relieve AFDC from compliance with the provisions of all applicable ordinances, regulations, and adopted standards and does not prejudice in any way the consideration of this special exception. Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

39. FOURTH ANNUAL PROVIDENCE DISTRICT ENVIRONMENTAL WORKSHOP (Tape 7)

Supervisor Kauffman stated that Christopher Companies is preparing to file a rezoning application in Lee District after successfully receiving Area Plans Review (APR) approval of a Comprehensive Plan change through the APR process. The APR nomination was approved by the Lee District Land Use Committee, Planning Commission, and the Board, and the applicant is now prepared to file a subsequent rezoning application that is in harmony with the new adopted Plan language. This application necessitates the vacation and/or abandonment of portions of the existing right-of-way currently known as Villa Street.

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize the filing of a rezoning application in the name of Christopher Management, Incorporated on portions of right-of-way currently known as Villa Street. He noted that approval of this motion shall not prejudice the rezoning application and does not relieve the applicant from compliance with any ordinances, codes, or adopted standards in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

42. SNOW REMOVAL FROM PEDESTRIAN WALKWAYS (Tape 8)

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed snow removal. See Clerk's Summary Items CL#33 and CL#35.)

Supervisor Hudgins commended the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) for its snow removal from the streets following the heavy snow accumulation from the February 15, 2003, snowstorm. She noted, however, that those residents who walk, bicycle, and use public transit face serious impediments. Several constituents called her office to express concerns about the dangerous conditions at bus stops. Since residents are encouraged to use public transportation as much as possible to relieve road congestion, particularly in inclement weather, she expressed her belief that more should be done to make conditions safe for pedestrians. She noted that the current standard is unacceptable because snow removal on streets makes conditions worse for pedestrians.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to work with the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, the Department of Transportation, and VDOT to determine what strategies can be taken to assist how snow removal from walkways, particularly at bus stops, can be accomplished to assist pedestrians using public transit after snowstorms. Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

Because of the contractual obligations and timelines relating to the drive-in bank, the applicant is requesting an expedited Board date for the public hearing.

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board authorize a Board public hearing date for the first available date following the Planning Commission's recommendation for Proffered Condition Amendment Applications PCA 88-C-091-08 and PCA 88-C-039-08, Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 89-C-027-09, and Rezoning Application RZ 2002-HM-044. She 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 this application in any way.

The trip will be paid for through extensive fundraising in the coming months. South Lakes High School encourages County residents to support the China trip by attending its May performances of "Singin’ in the Rain."

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite members of South Lakes High School Theater Arts Department who will be traveling to China to appear before the Board for recognition of their noble efforts to explore diversity in theater arts and to share the arts of the County with other cultures.
