ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

 

NV:nv

 

25.                   HEPATITIS AWARENESS DAY  (Tape 4)

 

Chairman Hanley stated that the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board’s Alcohol and Drug Services Agency, the Health Department, and the Department of Fire and Rescue have requested that the County recognize June 21, 2003, as Hepatitis Awareness Day in conjunction with the annual Tim Harmon Run-Walk.  Accordingly, she relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and moved that the Board direct staff to invite the appropriate staff to appear before the Board at June 16, 2003, meeting to receive a proclamation declaring June 21, 2003, as “Hepatitis Awareness Day” in Fairfax County.  Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

There was a brief inquiry to Merni Fitzgerald, Director, Office of Public Affairs.

 

26.                   ENDORSEMENT OF LAUREL HILL ADAPTIVE REUSE CITIZENS’ TASK FORCE  (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (Tape 4)

 

In a joint Board Matter with Vice-Chairman Hyland, Chairman Hanley said that the Laurel Hill Adaptive Reuse Citizens’ Task Force, under the direction of the Board, has been working with the Lorton community and the Park Authority to guide the master planning of the adaptive reuse areas of Laurel Hill.  As part of its mission to help create a world class facility at Laurel Hill that honors the site’s history and adds to the County’s quality of life, the Task Force was encouraged to consider proposals for adaptive reuse areas of Laurel Hill (the former site of the Lorton Prison).

 

Chairman Hanley noted that the Board's direction to the Task Force stated that it may make recommendations for action regarding proposals that "seem appropriate for the property" and "which may come to fruition earlier than others."  As outlined in a letter from Tim Sargent, Chairman of the Task Force, copies of which were distributed to the Board, the members of the Task Force believe that the Lorton Arts Foundation (LAF) meets these criteria with its proposal for an arts, cultural, and educational campus at the site.  The Task Force states that the LAF proposal is consistent with the mission statement and selection principles adopted by the Task Force and with the Comprehensive Plan regarding the adaptive reuse of buildings in the Occoquan facility and has received broad community and public support.

 


Chairman Hanley stated that the Task Force recommended that the Board take the following actions:

 

·        Vote to endorse the LAF proposal for an arts center on the Laurel Hill site, making way for the filing of appropriate land use actions by LAF.

 

·        Direct staff to expedite the review process for the LAF proposal.

 

·        Direct staff to work expeditiously with the LAF on a lease agreement and any other actions needed to move this proposal forward.

 

Accordingly, jointly with Vice-Chairman Hyland, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board endorse the Laurel Hill Adaptive Reuse Citizens' Task Force recommendations and direct the County Executive to provide at the next Board meeting a timetable for implementation.  Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Connolly noted that there are two more public meetings scheduled to provide public input regarding reuse of the site and he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to publicize them as follows:

 

·        May 27, 2003, 7-9 p.m., Supervisor Bulova's Braddock District Office, Burke Lake Road.

 

·        May 29, 2003, 7-9 p.m., Fairfax County Government Center, Rooms 9 and 10.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Following further discussion, the question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

(NOTE:  Later in the meting the Board took additional action regarding the Laurel Hill site.  See Clerk's Summary Items CL#63 and CL#64.)

 

27.                   ANALYSIS OF METROBUS AND FAIRFAX CONNECTOR SERVICE  (Tape 4)

 

Chairman Hanley reminded the Board that recent newspaper articles noted the County's expenditures for Metrobus and the Fairfax Connector.  The issue is complex, with many factors having changed since the start of Connector service in the mid-1980s.  She said that now is an appropriate time for transportation staff to develop, in coordination with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (WMATA), an analysis of this issue to provide an historical and current perspective on bus service in the County.

 

Chairman Hanley stated that this review should include an "apples to apples" comparison of Metrobus and Connector service and include all costs such as operating, capital, garage, and bus acquisition and replacement costs.  She noted that capital costs related to the Connector service have been and continue to be funded with local funds.  She asserted that the review should also include a chronology of growth in size of the Connector fleet, how many buses have been replaced, et cetera.  Factors that have changed since the inception of the Connector include the unionization of the former contract employees, thereby increasing labor costs.  Also, since no federal funds are used for bus acquisition or replacement, 100 percent of these costs are local general fund dollars, an amount not reflected in a simple comparison of operating costs.  When Metro acquires a bus with federal funds, the County's share is approximately $5,500-6,000, compared with $250,000-300,000 in local funds for each Connector bus.

 

With reference to a newspaper article on the subject, Chairman Hanley stated that its thesis is that the County should take over all Metrobus service in the County based on operating cost comparisons, then a more detailed analysis is needed to determine the fully-burdened cost of such a strategy, as well as an analysis of services provided for passengers whose origin or destination is outside the County.

 

Accordingly, Chairman Hanley moved that the Board direct staff, in conjunction with WMATA staff, undertake a comprehensive analysis on this issue and report its findings by June 16, 2003.  Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, the question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board took additional action regarding this item.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#28.)

 

28.                   FAIRFAX CONNECTOR: ONE OF TEN MOST IMPROVED TRANSIT SYSTEMS OF 2003 ACCORDING TO METRO MAGAZINE  (Tape 4)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed the Fairfax Connector bus system.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#27.)

 

Chairman Hanley noted that the Fairfax Connector is one of the largest private bus operations in the country and provided copies of an article from Metro Magazine, a transit industry publication, in which the Connector was highlighted as one of the "10 Most Improved Transit Systems of 2003."  The Connector earned a spot on the list because of increased ridership and a focus on customer service.  In Fiscal Year 2002, ridership increased 11.8 percent, surpassing the 4.8 percent goal, and customer complaints decreased by 26.8 percent.

 

Chairman Hanley noted that the Connector achieved these results by surveying its customers and determining that reliability is their number one concern.  The Connector took steps to improve reliability by hiring a new contract operator and putting new buses on the road.  It also improved customer service by giving riders greater access to information through both a revamped website as well as staff to help riders at transfer points during rush hours.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide details on the funding of bus replacement.  Chairman Hanley noted that this coordinates with the Board Matter she presented on bus service (Clerk's Summary Item CL#27).  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Discussion continued briefly.

 

29.                   NATIONAL REGISTER NOMINATION FOR GREEN SPRING (MASON DISTRICT)  (Tape 4)

 

Chairman Hanley reported that she had received a letter from the Virginia Department of Historic Resources regarding its plan to present a national register nomination for Green Spring for the Virginia State Review Board and the Virginia Historic Resources Board.  Because the County is a certified local government, the Architectural Review Board is entitled to a 60-day comment period.  Accordingly, she asked unanimous consent to refer this item to the County Executive for appropriate action.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

 

30.                   FOLLOW UP TO JOINT BOARD MATTER REGARDING KINGS CROSSING INTERCHANGE PROPOSAL IN ROUTE ONE LOCATION STUDY AND OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS FOR INTERCHANGE DESIGN (LEE AND MOUNT VERNON DISTRICTS)  (Tape 4)

 

Supervisor Hyland reported that he and Supervisor Kauffman attended the public hearing on the Fairfax County northern Segment “C” of the Route One Location Study.  One of the major issues of contention at the hearing was the use of grade separated interchanges as designed by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).  Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that on April 7, 2003, he discussed the effect on Kings Crossing which would result from such an interchange.  

Supervisor Hyland stated that on April 23, 2003, the Mount Vernon Council approved a resolution regarding two of the interchanges on Richmond Highway/Route One that supports the interchange concept developed for the County by the Lesser Company which allows Richmond Highway traffic to move through a tunnel beneath a circular plaza for local traffic as preferable to those shown in the location study.  From feedback he received, he said that businesses and residents have come together on this pedestrian-friendly design based on the Lesser proposal.  In fact, during the display of exhibits which preceded the hearing, Tom Farley of VDOT indicated to the Mount Vernon District Transportation Commissioner his strong interest and support for the “circular plaza” design.

Supervisor Hyland said that the other proposed interchange, located at Buckman Road north and Route 235 north, is also addressed in the Council’s resolution.  In this case, the Council proposes a design which is signal-free which facilitates the flow of traffic for north and south bound Richmond Highway travelers.  Since Federal legislation (ISTEA) encourages facilitation of traffic flow because it reduces noxious fumes and air pollution, this lends more credence to and further supports the Council’s modified design proposal. 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a letter for the Chairman’s signature requesting strong consideration for these two proposals from the Mount Vernon Council of Citizens Associations, one for Richmond Highway at North/South Kings Highway and one for Richmond Highway at Buckman Road North/South and Route 235, as substitutes for the existing designs currently shown in the Location Study.  Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

Following discussion, Supervisor Kauffman asked to amend the motion to direct staff to review the four-lane section proposal north of Route 235 from a transit perspective, both short term and long term, of the effect of not securing an ample amount of right-of-way.  This was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board took further action regarding this issue.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#56.)

31.                   AMERICAN RED CROSS CERTIFICATE OF MERIT AWARDED TO FAIRFAX COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS  (Tape 4)

 

Supervisor Hyland stated that he was asked by Debbie Vanderbeek, Manager of the American Red Cross office for South Fairfax County located on Fort Belvoir, to bring to the Board's attention two American Red Cross lifeguards who saved a boy's life at the pool on Fort Belvoir on July 3, 2002.

 

The two lifeguards, Ms. Christina Aponte and Ms. Kelly Morgan, have been recommended for the American Red Cross Certificate of Merit which is signed by the President of the American Red Cross after the event undergoes an exhaustive research process.  Ms. Vanderbeek contacted Supervisor Hyland's office to find a special way to present the certificates to the two young ladies and asked if it could be done before the Board.  Ms. Aponte is a senior at Mount Vernon High School and Ms. Morgan is a college student residing in Fairfax Station.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Aponte and Ms. Morgan to appear before the Board at the next available meeting to receive recognition from the Board and to receive their American Red Cross Certificates of Merit.  Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

32.                   NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE US ARMY BRIEFING  (Tape 4)

 

Supervisor Hyland said that he currently serves as a member of the Board of the Army Historical Foundation and he has been asked by its Executive Director to  request time to brief the Board of Supervisors on the status of the National Museum of the US Army (NMUSA).  Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Army Historical Foundation and the Center for Military History to make a brief presentation on the status of the NMUSA to the Board of Supervisors at an appropriate time and date.  Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

33.                   BELLE HAVEN COUNTRY CLUB (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (Tape 4)

 

Supervisor Hyland stated that on November 18, 2002, the Board approved Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 98-V-042 in the name of Belle Haven Country Club, Incorporated.  Condition two of the Board's approval was that the special exception amendment application was granted only for those purposes, structures, and/or uses shown on the special exception plat approved with the application.  Two clay tennis courts shown on the approved plat intrude into a 50-foot wide County sanitary easement running across the country club's property.  The Belle Haven Country Club is now seeking permission from the County to construct these tennis courts in the location shown on the approved special exception amendment plat.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board authorize the County Executive to sign and execute an agreement that provides that the Belle Haven Country Club will compensate the County for any costs, to be determined by the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, for any maintenance of the sanitary sewer necessitated by the presence of the tennis courts and for any damage to the sanitary sewer as a result of the construction, maintenance, or use of the tennis courts.  The agreement also provides that the owner will hold the County harmless for any liability for damage to the tennis courts, or facilities appurtenant thereto, as a result of maintenance of the sanitary sewer.  The Belle Haven Country Club shall hold the County harmless and indemnify the County, including the defense of any suit, for any liability from any claim arising out of or in any way connected with the tennis courts, the maintenance thereof, or maintenance of the sanitary sewer necessitated by the presence of the tennis courts.  He noted that this matter was coordinated with the County Attorney.  Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor McConnell said that the Church of the Nativity is an existing church with a special exception for a private school of general education located at 6398 Nativity Lane in the Springfield District.  The church would like to add a small preschool operation to the existing school, and would like to be able to enroll students in this program this fall.  The church has recently filed Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 95-S-038 to achieve this objective.  Due to the straightforward nature of this application, and the applicant’s need to ascertain its status to enroll students for this fall, Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the processing of this application so that the Board may hear the request prior to the August recess.  The applicant is aware that expediting this application should not be construed to prejudice the consideration of this application in any way.  Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

40.                   POLICY GOALS TO THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (VDOT) THAT AIM TO PROVIDE ACCESS FOR PEDESTRIANS AND BICYCLISTS   (Tape 5)

 

Supervisor Hudgins stated that Virginia Transportation Secretary Whitt Clement recently submitted a list of policy goals to VDOT that aim to provide greater access for pedestrians and bicyclists.  Supervisor Hudgins stated that this new policy should greatly improve non-motorized transportation conditions in the County and listed Mr. Clement’s goals as the following:

 

·        Bicyclists, walkers and other modes of non-motorized transportation should receive the same consideration as motorized transportation in the planning, design, construction, and operation of Virginia’s transportation network.

 

·        Bike lanes, sidewalks, shared-use paths, or other accommodations should be included in the design of all new highway and major reconstruction projects, unless special circumstances exist that prevent the inclusion of such accommodations or a local governing body has formally requested that bike lanes or other access not be included in a particular project.

 

·        Access to the entire transportation system should be improved for bicyclists and pedestrians.  To achieve this goal, Secretary Clement has asked VDOT to review all existing restrictions affecting bike and pedestrian access to highway facilities.

 

·        Current funding procedures for bicycle and pedestrian facilities, including design, construction, maintenance and operations, should be reviewed to ensure that these facilities are treated in the same fashion as highway projects.

 

·        VDOT should identify recommendations for amending any statutory provisions that either hinder the inclusion or bicycle or pedestrian accommodations in construction or prohibit the use of state or federal transportation funds for stand-alone bicycle or pedestrian construction projects.

 

·        VDOT should ensure that all these activities are coordinated at the statewide and VDOT district levels, including the appointment of focused district advisory councils for pedestrian and bicycle issues.

 

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff from the Department of Transportation to work with VDOT to ensure that County transportation policies are compatible with this new guideline with VDOT.  Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved to amend the motion to direct staff to report with what the changes would be and the impact to the County of the implementation of these guideline policies.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the amendment to the motion.

 

Chairman Hanley restated the motion as directing staff to report with the impacts, both physical and fiscal, of the County’s standardizing its policies with the State.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Frey stated the Board previously directed staff to report regarding the impact of the addition of on road bike paths, as a part of every project, in addition to the sidewalks and trails.  Noting that the Board had not received a response, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to follow up on this issue.  Without objection, it was so ordered. 

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Hudgins accepted Supervisor Mendelsohn’s  amendment to the motion.

 

Chairman Hanley relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the current State policy. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

 

Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to include the impact of the cost of lives in the cost-benefit analysis.

 

Following discussion, Chairman Hanley restated the motion, as amended, to  include the following:

 

·        How the County’s policies compare/contrast with the current policies of the State.

 

·        What would be the Fiscal impacts of the County implementing the State policies.

 

·        What the State policy is and what its projection of what its costs will be.

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite Principal Gina Ross to appear before the Board to receive recognition for her contributions to the children of Fairfax County.  Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion.

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

 

43.                   VIENNA VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (Tape 5)

 

Supervisor Hudgins noted that the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department is celebrating its one hundredth anniversary this year.  The station will be holding an anniversary dinner at the end of May to commemorate its one hundredth anniversary.  Established in 1903, the Vienna station was the County's first volunteer fire department. One hundred years later, the department continues to provide exceptional services to the residents of the County and the Town of Vienna on a daily basis.  In addition, the career firefighters at Vienna's station were among the responders to the September 11, 2001, tragedy at the Pentagon, requiring the volunteers to staff additional emergency medical units around the County.  The work of all volunteer firefighters is invaluable and it is important to recognize this milestone in the history of the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department and the Town of Vienna.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite members of the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department to appear before the Board to receive recognition for their continual contributions to the County and the Town of Vienna and to be recognized on their one-hundredth anniversary.  Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

Supervisor Frey said that the Northern Virginia Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NVAIFA) has proclaimed the week of May 12-16, 2003, as "Life Insurance Week in Northern Virginia.”  NVAIFA has been helping people since 1945 when it was founded.  When tragedy or an untimely personal or business crisis strikes, members of NVAIFA and the companies they represent are there immediately to provide the financial solutions and assistance that insurance was designed to provide.  Insurance benefits cannot replace the individuals struck down by premature death or serious disability, but such benefits can permit the families to survive and businesses of those so afflicted to remain productive.

In support of NVAIFA and its continuing service to the residents of this County, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board proclaim the week of May 12-16, 2003, “Life Insurance Week” in Fairfax County and direct staff to  prepare and send a Proclamation.  Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.

·        Authorize the acceptance and schedule the necessary public hearing to permit DFS/Long to vacate and abandon the existing rights-of-way known as a portion to the cul-de-sac of Merrilee Drive.

 

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

 

54.                   PARK WATCH  (Tape 6)

 

Supervisor Connolly said that safety in the parks and on the trails is a paramount concern.  This Board has sponsored a number of initiatives that have enhanced safety for the adults and children who enjoy the parks and trails year round.

As valuable as this program is, there are still parklands that do not come under this safety umbrella.  Parkland under the purview of the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority and the W&OD Trail is excluded from the Park Watch program. 

 

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to convene a study group of representatives of various Park entities as well as the involved police departments and citizens to discuss ways that Park Watch might be expanded to include all parkland in Fairfax County.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

 

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

 


55.                   FUEL ECONOMY AT 22 YEAR LOW  (Tape 6)

 

Supervisor Connolly said that a report issued Friday by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reveals that the average fuel economy of the nation's cars and trucks fell to its lowest level in 22 years in the 2002 model year.  Included in his written Board Matter is a copy of Saturday's New York Times story on a trend that should deeply trouble the Metropolitan Washington region.  He noted that this region's noncompliance with EPA Clean Air standards threatens the health of the citizens as well as future federal transportation funding. 

 

Therefore, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct Chairman Hanley to write to the members of the Congressional delegation, bringing this report to their attention and asking that, as they debate the Energy Bill, they keep in mind the impact of dropping fuel economy on the air quality in the Washington region and all of the risks that brings and take appropriate action to see this crucial issue is addressed in that legislation.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

 

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