·        Request that the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) assist the region in meeting the emissions requirements outlined in the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, by providing funding for projects that specifically reduce vehicle emissions.

 

·        Request that the CTB approve the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority's recommendations regarding Fiscal Year (FY) 2005 Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality, Regional Surface Transportation Program, when they are approved in December 2003.

 

·        Request that the CTB approve funding for the priority projects listed in Attachments I and II of the Board Agenda item.  Attachment I provides background information on several of the recommended priority projects.  Attachment II recommends projects for funding in the Interstate and Primary Program.

 

·        Request that the CTB restore funding to projects that were initially funded in the Virginia Transportation Act of 2000, including the I‑66/I-495 interchange interim improvements, the I-95 fourth lane, the Richmond Highway project, and the Fairfax County Parkway (interchange at Fair Lakes Parkway/Monument Drive and widening from Sunrise Valley Drive to Route 123).

 

·        Reiterate the County's request that the CTB continue funding for the Dulles transit enhancements, including $7.4 million for the County's Express Bus Service and funding for the implementation of the Dulles Corridor Rapid Transit Project.  These projects will assist the region in meeting its air quality goals. In addition, request that the CTB continue its policy of allocating 85 percent of the surplus Toll Road revenues to transit.

 

·        Request that the CTB support the FY 2004 request for State transit capital and operating assistance to Northern Virginia, and approve the County's FY 2005 grant applications, including the RideSources grant application, when they are submitted in February 2004.  These programs contribute to reducing vehicle emissions.

 

·        Request that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) work closely with the County to implement the Richmond Highway Public Transportation Initiative including express bus service, and assorted improvements throughout the corridor.  These improvements will help meet air quality improvement standards and relieve congestion.

·        Request that VDOT reexamine its new policies of charging a flat four percent of project budgets for administrative costs to every project.  Staff would like the CTB to review this VDOT policy with respect to impact on delivering projects on time and on budget and determine if there is a more equitable way for VDOT administration to cover its costs.  The Board is specifically concerned with the $7 million additional charge to the Route 28 PPT A project.

 

·        Request that the CTB continue the Congestion Relief Program started this past year with a stronger emphasis on local project selection, and use the $808,000 that has previously been allocated to the Bus Fare Buy Down Program to provide ongoing bus service, marketing and transit ridership incentive programs in the Richmond Highway Corridor.

 

·        Request that the CTB seek ways to assist Northern Virginia funding Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's Infrastructure Renewal Program and critical items in its System Access Program, to ensure that the regions significant transit investments are protected and continue to provide the mobility and air quality benefits they were intended to provide.

 

·        Approve the letter to Secretary Whittington Clement, contained in Attachment III of the Board Agenda item, transmitting the recommendations of the Board and emphasizing its concerns regarding allocations to Interstate, Primary, and Transit projects, facilities, and services.  Attachments I and II of the Board Agenda item will also be attachments to the letter to Secretary Clement.

 

·        Designate Chairman Hanley to present the Board position to CTB at the Six­ Year Program hearing.

 

·        Encourage VDOT to be flexible in traffic operation decisions (flash at night, cycle lengths, pedestrian countdown signals, illuminated pedestrian crosswalks, lighted street signs).

 

·        With new Commonwealth policy, encourage VDOT to support stand-alone bike/pedestrian facility projects and for bike and pedestrian projects to be fully included within all road construction projects.

24.                   COUNTY TELEWORK EXPO A GREAT SUCCESS  (Tape 5)

 

On behalf of the Board, Supervisor Connolly congratulated Carol Stuart, Catherine A. Chianese, Thomas Mauter, Karrie Beckman, and all of the other County staff who worked to make the recent Telework Expo a success.  The goal of the Expo, organized by County employees for County employees, was to inform more employees of the benefits and possibilities of telework. He noted that the Expo moved forward the most aggressive telework plan of any local government in the Metropolitan Washington area.  He continued to challenge the other 16 jurisdictions to pursue telework efforts.

 

Supervisor Connolly stated that Ms. Stuart has been the inspiration for this successful telework program, and it has set the standard for the region as the County works toward a goal of 20 percent of eligible employees’ teleworking by 2005.  He noted that she is leaving the County next month.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Stuart and other County employees involved in the telework program to appear before the Board at the next meeting to report on the progress made toward the goal and to express appreciation to them for their ardent support for telework as part of the County’s transportation goals.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

25.                   WAIVER OF FEES FOR REMOVAL OF GREENWAY DOWNS RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT #13 (RPPD) AS AN RPPD (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (Tape 5)

 

Supervisor Connolly stated that citizens residing on Greenway Boulevard and West George Mason Road have petitioned for the removal of Greenway Downs RPPD #13.  This neighborhood finds that it no longer needs the assistance of an RPPD to have adequate parking for residents and have petitioned the County for removal.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to waive the $10 per household application fee required to remove an RPPD from the County’s RPPD registry.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

26.                   WAIVER OF FEES FOR WADE PLACE RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (Tape 5)

Supervisor Connolly reported that the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund announced that eight Virginia law enforcement officers were killed in the line of duty in 2003.  This matches the highest total for the Commonwealth ever recorded and is the third highest total of any other state in the nation so far this year.  He noted that this past week was the one-year anniversary of the death of Trooper C. Mark Cosslett, who died on I-95 in Newington while responding to a reported sniper shooting.  These tragic losses underscore the risks that police officers routinely face.

 

Given the recent number of police fatalities in Virginia, Supervisor Connolly moved that the Board reaffirm its commitment to support measures to make police officers safer.  He also encouraged County citizens, when they see County police officers on patrol, to take a moment to wave a greeting and thank them for the superb, but hazardous job these committed men and women do every day so all citizens can securely go about their lives.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

28.                   MAIN STREET CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER CELEBRATES 30 YEARS (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (Tape 5)

 

Supervisor Connolly stated that he learned that the Main Street Child Development Center is celebrating its 30-year anniversary.  Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite members of the center to appear before the Board at either the November or December meeting to be recognized for their 30 years of service.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

29.                   ADOPT A FAMILY PICK UP SITES  (Tape 5)

 

Supervisor Connolly reminded the Board that at last week’s meeting he spoke about the Adopt a Family program sponsored by the Office of Partnerships.  He noted that in previous years the pick up location had been the Government Center, but last year, because of security concerns regarding wrapped packages, the location was changed to Heritage Fellowship United Church of Christ in Reston.  He expressed his appreciation to that church, but noted his concern regarding the logistical hardship on residents of the southern part of the County to travel to Reston.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Partnerships to examine the possibility of arranging additional sites, such as the South County Center, to allow better access for constituents.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

35.                   TURNER FARM FEE WAIVERS (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT)  (Tape 5)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board noted recognition from the Dark Skies Association.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#20.)

 

Supervisor Mendelsohn noted that he previously presented an item to waive fees regarding Turner Farms and that he now needed to update it because the action had been too limited and did not include the observatory.  The Turner Farm Team has been working with the Park Authority over the last two years to develop park facilities and an observatory at the farm site.  He said that the observatory is being constructed almost exclusively with private funds. 

 

Accordingly, in consideration of the public benefit and the continued effort and dedication of the Turner Farm Team to the development of the park, Supervisor Mendelsohn moved that the Board waive:

 

·        The building permit application review fees.

 

·        Any and all other fees associated with any development or construction at Turner Farm Park pursuant to the adopted park master plan.

 

This motion does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards.  Supervisor Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

36.                   BAILEY’S CROSS ROADS VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT (MASON DISTRICT)  (Tape 6)

 

(A)                   Supervisor Gross stated that in 1991, the Board conveyed property located on Columbia Pike at Tax Map Number 61-4((1) parcel 20A to the Bailey’s Cross Roads Volunteer Fire Department.  The volunteers continue to operate a fire and rescue station from this property.  The deed from the Board to the Volunteer Fire Department contains an Automatic Reverter Clause which provides that should the property ever be used for a purpose other than a fire station, or should any part of the property be “sold, conveyed, leased or transferred to any person or entity other than a volunteer fire department,” then title to the property would automatically revert to the Board.

 

Supervisor Gross said that in 1995 and again in 1998, the volunteers asked the Board to agree that the Board’s reversionary interest in the property would not be triggered should the Volunteer Fire Department lease a portion of the site for telecommunications facilities.  The Board agreed to waive its reversionary interests in each instance and as a result, a monopole and various antennae have been located on the property.

 

Supervisor Gross stated that the volunteers recently approached her office about an easement that the Volunteer Fire Department would like to grant on the property without triggering the Automatic Reverter Clause.  Therefore, a public hearing needs to be scheduled before the Board to decide whether to waive any reversionary interest that the Board may have in the Bailey’s Cross Roads Volunteer Fire Department property, in the event that the volunteers grant the requested easement.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board authorize the advertisement of a public hearing to be held before the Board on November 17, 2003, at 3:30 p.m. regarding the proposal that the Board forego claiming that its reversionary interest would be triggered if the Bailey’s Cross Roads Volunteer Fire Department were to grant an easement to Unison Site Acquisition, LLC on property located at Tax Map Number 61-4((1)) parcel 20A.  Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

 

Following a brief discussion, with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

37.                   ANNANDALE WOMEN’S CLUB CELEBRATES ITS FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY (MASON DISTRICT)  (Tape 6)

38.                   DEBRIS PICK UP FROM HURRICANE ISABEL  (Tape 6)

Following discussion, Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, stated that staff would report with information on the status of the debris problem later in the meeting.

39.                   EXPEDITED PROCESSING OF A PENDING SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION BY FEDERAL REALTY PARTNERS LP (LEE DISTRICT)  (Tape 7)

 

Supervisor Kauffman said that Federal Realty Partners LP has recently acquired two existing shopping centers located on Richmond Highway.  The two properties are zoned to the C-6 District and were largely developed in the 1970s.  The new property owner intends to renovate the property, which will include improvements such as new building facades, landscaping, and better traffic circulation.  The first step of this renovation process is the filing of a special exception for a drive-through bank in proximity to Richmond Highway. The application has been filed and is likely to soon be accepted.  The property owner is under certain time constraints regarding site plan approval for the planned improvements, including the new bank.  A request has been submitted for expedited processing of the pending special exception.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Planning and Zoning to expeditiously process a special exception application for a drive-through bank filed by Federal Realty Partners LP.  Public hearings before the Planning Commission and Board should be scheduled in January 2004.  This motion should not be construed as a recommendation of this application by the Board and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards in way.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

40.                   KINGSTOWNE FAITH EVANGELICAL PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH'S ANNUAL FAITH 5K RUN/WALK (LEE DISTRICT)  (Tape 7)

 

Supervisor Kauffman said that on October 18, 2003, the Kingstowne Faith Evangelical Presbyterian Church held its annual Faith 5K Run/Walk.  It partnered with the Inova HealthPlex in Franconia­ Springfield to hold the event.

 

Supervisor Kauffman noted that more than 500 people participated, with the Koinonia Foundation being the chief beneficiary of the event.  Koinonia is a non-profit, charitable organization that provides medical needs, clothing, food, and helpful other agency referrals for needy individuals and families in the Franconia-Kingstowne area.

 

In light of the work that was put into this successful event by the organizers, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to invite the organizers to appear before the Board and be presented with a resolution commending their efforts.  Chairman Hanley seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

41.                   FUNDING OF STREET LIGHTS  (Tape 7)

46.                   REQUEST FOR STATE FUNDING FOR THE JUVENILE AND DOMESTIC RELATIONS COURT  (Tape 7)

 

                        Supervisor Hudgins said that she recently received a letter from Janet Muldoon, Chairperson of the Citizen Advisory Council of the Juvenile and Domestic Relations County Court.  Ms. Muldoon cautions that State funding continues to diminish but that, in spite of this, Fairfax County's Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court continues to set the State and national standard.  However, Ms. Muldoon requests that the Board include a request for appropriate State funding for the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court in its Legislative Program for the 2004 General Assembly.  Given the prior year challenges in providing the courts the support needed to meet its goals for rehabilitation and prevention, this matter merits further discussion.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board refer this issue and the letter from Ms. Muldoon to the Board's Legislative Committee for consideration.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTER

 

70.                   FLOODING CAUSED BY HURRICANE ISABEL (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (Tape 9)

 

(NOTE:  Earlier in the meeting there was additional discussion relating to this item.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#33.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said that the flooding caused by Hurricane Isabel resulted in significant damage to many homes in the New Alexandria section of the Mount Vernon District. Many of the damaged homes will need a significant amount of work that may require a special exception approval by the Board.  Some homes may need to be rebuilt and may require special exception approval.  The flooding caused by Hurricane Isabel created a significant hardship for the affected owners.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board authorize separate Board's Own Motion special exception applications to be filed with the owners as co-applicants for any of the properties within New Alexandria for which it is determined a special exception will be required to build new homes on these properties.  The homeowners will be responsible for all of the necessary engineering drawings, for submitting all of the necessary application information and materials to the County, including the affidavit, and for actually accomplishing the work.  This motion does not relieve the owner from compliance with any ordinances or regulations and does not prejudge the outcome of the applications in any way.

 

Supervisor Hyland said some of the properties in New Alexandria that were the subject of his first motion may also require variances of the minimum yard requirements.  This is due to nonconformities that have arisen over the years and because the lots on which the flooded houses exist may not have sufficient width or depth to accommodate, under current Zoning Ordinance setback requirements, the same home that existed before Hurricane Isabel.  He said these homeowners should be able to build their new homes with the same or lesser footprints that existed for the homes that now must be replaced.

 

Therefore, he moved that the Board authorize separate Board's Own Motion variance applications to be filed with the owners as co-applicants for any of the foregoing properties under limited circumstances.  Those circumstances would be limited to situations where it is determined a variance will be required to build new homes with the same footprint or a smaller footprint in any areas of the property in which the existing homes did not satisfy the current applicable yard requirements.  The Board would join the owner as a co-applicant if the existing encroachments into the required yards are not exacerbated in any way by the variance application. The homeowners will be responsible for all of the necessary engineering drawings, for submitting all of the necessary application information and materials to the County, including the affidavit, and for actually accomplishing the work.  It is noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from compliance with any ordinances or regulations other than the applicable yard requirements and does not prejudge the outcome of the applications in any way.  Approval of these motions would seek to ease the already heavy burdens of these property owners.  Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motions.

 

Supervisor Hyland further moved that the Board:

 

·        Authorize concurrent processing for any properties covered by the first two motions.

 

·        Direct staff to expedite the processing of any such applications.

 

Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Hyland amended his motions specifically limiting it to owners of existing properties.

 

Following further discussion, with input from Barbara A. Byron, Director, Zoning Evaluation Division, Department of Planning and Zoning, Supervisor Hyland amended his motions to establish a time limit of 12 months for property owners who were affected.

 

The question was called on the motions, as amended, and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Connolly and Supervisor Mendelsohn being out of the room.
