35.                   REQUEST FOR EXPEDITED PROCESSING FOR SPECIAL  EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 2003-HM-010 (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (Tape 5)

 

                        Supervisor Hudgins said that Jacques J. Moore filed an application for Special Exception Application SE 2003-HM-010 which requests a special exception to expand the existing vehicle sale, rental, and ancillary service of the Moore Cadillac dealership.  Due to contractual obligations with deadlines, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the processing of this application and schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on September 29, 2003.  This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board on the proposed application and does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of all applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards and does not prejudice the consideration of this application in any way.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Frey being out of the room.

 

36.                   WAIVER OF THE FEES FOR USE OF THE SHOWMOBILE (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (Tape 5)

37.                   REQUEST FOR AUDIT OF FISCAL POLICIES OR PRACTICES OF THE RESTON COMMUNITY CENTER (RCC) (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (Tape 5)

 

                        Supervisor Hudgins stated that the Reston community was startled to learn that the RCC lost two critical programs for its youth, Support on Suspension (SOS) and middle school after-school activities, as a result of financial discrepancies in its youth program.  In an effort to retain the SOS program, Supervisor Hudgins contacted the Department of Management and Budget (DMB), and, in following up with RCC staff and working with DMB, the funding is continuing for the SOS program, which successfully provides productive activities for local students serving school suspensions.  While she was given assurances that the problem does not reflect any wrongdoing, she believes the community should also be assured that RCC is still the well managed facility the community has come to respect.  While she has asked the County Executive to review the matter, she now believes this is an opportunity for a thorough review of the fiscal management practices of RCC.

 

                        Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct the Auditor of the Board to:

 

·        Review the fiscal policies or practices of the RCC.

 


·        Expeditiously report its findings to the Board.

 

Chairman Hanley seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

38.                   RECOGNITION OF MADISON HIGH SCHOOL’S BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL TEAMS (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (Tape 5)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Madison High School baseball and softball teams have again proven themselves the class of the Northern Region.  For the second straight year, the Madison baseball team captured the Northern Region title with an 8-5 victory over Robinson Secondary School on Saturday. A day earlier, the Madison softball team defeated Oakton High School 1-0 to also gain the Northern Region title.  Both squads will now enter their State tournaments. She said that the Hunter Mill District is very proud of both teams and excited to see them do well in the State tournaments. 

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite the Madison High School baseball and softball teams to appear before the Board to receive recognition for their outstanding seasons and their dual Northern Regional championships.  Supervisor Bulova and Supervisor Hyland jointly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

39.                   COMMUNITY MEETING FOR AN UPDATE ON THE DULLES CORRIDOR RAPID TRANSIT PROJECT  (Tape 5)

41.                   MILITARY EXERCISES (MASON DISTRICT)  (Tape 6)

 

Supervisor Gross said that last Thursday night many Mason District residents experienced a severe scare when an apparent NORAD military exercise sent F‑15s over their neighborhoods at a very low altitude.  Although later newscasts announced the exercise, no advance warning apparently was made available to alert residents that they would not be in danger. She said that she has received a number of calls and e-mails inquiring why such tests are conducted in a heavily populated area, and what they can do about it.

 

Supervisor Gross noted that military exercises are outside of the jurisdiction of Fairfax County.  However, this incident raises some serious questions about notification and safety, and deserves greater scrutiny. 

 

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to the County Executive for examination and recommendations that the Board might want to forward to the appropriate federal officials. 

 

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

 

42.                   SPOTLIGHT BY STARLIGHT (MASON DISTRICT)  (Tape 6)

43.                   INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 97-V-033 (MOUNT VERNON COUNTRY CLUB) (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (Tape 6)

 

Supervisor Hyland announced his intent, later in the meeting, to defer the public hearing on Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 97-V-033 until June 16, 2003, at 5 p.m.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the public hearing was formally deferred.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#54.)

44.                   REQUEST FOR WAIVER OF FEES FOR THE LORTON ARTS FOUNDATION (LAF) (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (Tape 6)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, additional action was taken regarding the LAF.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#15.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said that earlier in the meeting, the Board approved the agency agreement permitting the Lorton Arts Foundation (LAF) to move forward with a rezoning and site plan for the property known as "Parcel G" of the former Lorton Correctional Complex.

 

Supervisor Hyland said that in anticipation of this action, the Executive Director of the Foundation [a 501(c)(3), non-profit corporation] made a request to have any and all fees associated with the rezoning waived.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board waive any and all fees associated with the LAF rezoning application.  Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion.

 

Following input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

(NOTE:  Later in the meeting, additional action was taken regarding the LAF.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#45.)

 

45.                   ADDITIONAL ACTION REGARDING ACTION ITEM A-5 - APPROVAL OF A LIMITED REVOCABLE AGENCY AGREEMENT BY AND BETWEEN THE BOARD AND THE LORTON ARTS FOUNDATION (LAF), INCORPORATED AND A TEMPORARY REVOCABLE LICENSE FOR ENTRY AGREEMENT TO ALLOW LAF TO ACCESS THE OCCOQUAN WORKHOUSE AREA (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (Tape 6)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, additional action was taken regarding the LAF.  See Clerk's Summary Items CL#15 and CL#44.)

 

Supervisor Hyland referred to Action Item A-5 and noted that because it is uncertain at this time exactly what insurance coverage and terms will be available to the LAF, it is appropriate for the County Executive to be authorized in the Temporary Revocable License for Entry to approve, if necessary, insurance coverage and terms that may differ from those specified in paragraph 5 of that agreement, but which provide materially similar insurance protection.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved to amend the motion (made earlier in the meeting) that the Board concur in the recommendation of staff and authorize the County Executive, on behalf of the Board, to enter into the Limited Revocable Agency Agreement with LAF and the Temporary Revocable License for Entry agreement providing that the first sentence of paragraph 5 of the Temporary Revocable License for Entry agreement shall be revised to read:

 

·        "The Licensee shall, during the continuance of all activities under this Revocable License Agreement provide the following, or, subject to the prior written approval of the County Executive, other materially similar substitutes."  Approval of the Limited Revocable Agency Agreement and the Temporary Revocable License for Entry agreement is made by the Board in its capacity as owner of the Occoquan Workhouse property only, and not in its governmental or regulatory capacity, and shall in no way prejudice the substantive review of any rezoning applications or site plans filed."

 

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

 

46.                   MASTER JHOON RHEE AND TAE KWAN DO  (Tape 6)

 

Supervisor Frey said that Jhoon Rhee, the creator of Tae Kwan Do, is celebrating his seventieth birthday on June 7, 2003.  In addition, this year is the fortieth anniversary of Tae Kwan Do in Fairfax County.  Master Rhee has trained many students, including elected officials at the highest levels of government, and the most famous celebrities.

 

In light of all of Master Rhee's accomplishments and to commemorate his seventieth birthday and the fortieth anniversary of Tae Kwan Do in Fairfax County, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board declare June 7, 2003, as "Jhoon Rhee Day" in Fairfax County and that the Chair communicate this and the Board's best wishes to him.  Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Mendelsohn seconded the motion.

 

Following a brief discussion, the question was called on the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

Chairman Hanley noted that the map that shows the data that is being mapped that adds onto resource protection areas does not have any other information on it.  She relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Hyland and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to impose major roads on top of that map.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Vice-Chairman Hyland returned the gavel to Chairman Hanley.

 

Supervisor Kauffmann asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to identify revitalization areas on the map.  Without objection, it was so ordered.
