ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

 

NV:nv

 

26.                   HANDICAPPED PARKING SPOT SIGNAGE ENFORCEMENT  (11:17 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly reported that his office was recently contacted by a constituent who had a complaint regarding a business in the County that lacked the proper above-grade signage marking its handicapped parking spot, in violation of both the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code and the County's enforcement of such violations.  When the constituent first contacted the County to report the violation, he was directed to the Office of Site Development Services in the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES), where he was told that the property owner must be referred to the County by the citizen before any action could be taken.  After the constituent contacted Chairman Connolly’s staff regarding this situation, they discovered that the Office of Building Code Services, also in DPWES, does indeed investigate and enforce such violations once they are brought to its attention by citizens.  Chairman Connolly expressed his concern that County citizens are given different answers to the same question by the same department, especially on such an important issue.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to examine this matter and report with a clear and coherent Policy regarding the enforcement of proper signage for handicapped parking spots.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

27.                   IMPROVEMENTS TO THE ONLINE LAND DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM (LDSNET)  (11:18 a.m.)

                        Supervisor Smyth commented that all of the attachments to staff reports are not yet available online.

 

                        Without objection, the request was so ordered.

Accordingly, Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff of the Office of Public Affairs to publicize this event.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

32.                   BOARD'S TRANSPORTATION PLAN - CHAIRMAN'S INITIATIVE  (11:22 a.m.)

 

In keeping with a pledge he made last fall regarding proceeding with a comprehensive transportation initiative, Chairman Connolly presented his plan in writing to the Board.  The four-year plan (fiscal years 2005-2009) outlines a $100 million initiative that improves some highway and transit projects, some spot intersection improvements, and some pedestrian improvements throughout the County.  Funding will be a combination of an advance commitment of $50 million in RSTP and GMAQ funds (Federal and State Match) as well as $50 million in general obligation bonds (in addition to $115 million transportation bond sale planned for November 2004).  Chairman Connolly said that projects were selected that can realistically be completed within the next four years, that do not have other sources of funding, and will provide significant congestion relief for minimal capital outlay.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board endorse this initiative.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Kauffman asked to amend the motion to add under the category “Spot Intersection Improvements” the construction of a left turn lane on South Kings Highway westbound onto Harrison Lane.  This was accepted.

 

Further discussion ensued regarding the implementation of the plan, with input from Young Ho Chang, Director, Department of Transportation, and Edward L. Long, Jr., Chief Financial Officer.

 

Supervisor Hudgins asked to amend the motion to consider as a priority piece, under “Major Transit and Highway Projects, Centreville Road Improvements (Sully),” the inclusion of the mile of uncompleted area further down the road that has been on hold. 

Following discussion, Chairman Connolly amended his motion to direct staff to cost out the referenced project and add it to the list, and this was accepted.

 

Following input from Mr. Chang, Supervisor McConnell asked to amend the motion to direct staff to provide an implementation plan should this initiative be approved, and this was accepted.

 

Further discussion ensued, with input from Mr. Chang.

 

Chairman Connolly clarified that the projects on the list have some flexibility for substitutions and additions as the plan proceeds.

 

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

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

33.                   PORTABLE STORAGE UNITS  (11:41 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said that a new phenomenon has come to the Mount Vernon District, and probably the County as a whole, the advent of the portable storage units springing up in communities and in front of homes which need additional storage for a given period of time. 

 

Supervisor Hyland said that what seemed to be a good idea – large (12-16 feet by approximately eight or more feet), weather resistant, portable storage boxes, delivered to a site for placement in a homeowners’ driveway for a limited time period, such as a move into a home or during renovation projects, has taken on different dimensions.  He said that his office has received reports of the misuse of these units, such as their permanency and size and location, without regard to the limitations set forth in Article 10 of the Zoning Ordinance.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to review the issue of portable storage units and report with recommendations for modifying the Zoning Ordinance to prevent these units from becoming an undesirable use in residential areas.  Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, Chairman Connolly noted that this issue would be put on the agenda for the March meeting of the Development Process Review Committee as part of the staff review.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Smyth asked to amend the motion to expand the scope to include commercial districts, and this was accepted.

 

Supervisor DuBois asked to amend the motion to include a review of the enforcement and time limitations on large refuse containers that are used in residential areas during remodeling projects, and this was accepted.

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor Kauffman, and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

34.                   PROPOSED TRIBUTE TO THE LATE MR. LOUIS V. GENUARIO (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:47 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Hyland said that last month Mr. Louis V. Genuario, Mount Vernon District  Representative to the Fairfax Area Disability Services Board, died.  Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter and outlined Mr. Genuario’s significant accomplishments.

 

Because of Mr. Genuario’s role in the upcoming renovation of the Board Auditorium to make it more accessible to persons with disabilities, Supervisor Hyland moved that, upon completion, the Board dedicate the upper seating area of the auditorium in honor of Mr. Louis V. Genuario and identify it with a plaque indicating the role he played on the Fairfax Area Disability Services Board in bringing about these modifications to benefit County residents with disabilities. 

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Hyland revised his motion to dedication of a plaque in the appropriate area of the Board Auditorium in honor of the late Mr. Genuario to recognize his contribution.

 

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board refer to the County Attorney the criteria for naming County facilities.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the question was called on the pending motion.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#36.)

 

35.                   MOUNT VERNON’S SEVENTEENTH ANNUAL TOWN MEETING  (11:50 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland expressed his appreciation to Chairman Connolly; Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive; Edward L. Long, Jr., Chief Financial Officer; and other staff for participating in Mount Vernon’s Seventeenth Annual Town Meeting held on January 31, 2004, which was successful and well attended.

 

A brief discussion ensued.

 

The videotape of the meeting will be replayed on Cable Channel 16 at the following times:

 

·        Friday, February 13 at 8 p.m.

 

·        Saturday, February 21 at 9 a.m.

 

Extra copies of the tape will also be available for loan to citizens by the end of this week at Mount Vernon District Libraries and at Supervisor Hyland’s office. 

 

36.                   VOTE ON PLAQUE HONORING THE LATE MR. LOUIS V. GENUARIO  (11:52 a.m.)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board made a motion regarding a plaque to honor the late Mr. Louis V. Genuario.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#34.)

 

The question was called on the motion, as amended, to dedicate a plaque in the appropriate area of the Board Auditorium in honor of the late Mr. Genuario to recognize his contribution, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Kauffman and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

37.                   REQUEST FOR EXPEDITED AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF THE SITE PLAN WITH THE SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION FOR SUNTRUST BANK (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:53 a.m.)

 

With reference to his written Board Matter, Supervisor Hyland said that Sun Trust Bank will lose parking spaces because of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge construction project.  He noted that due to the Virginia Department of Transportation’s (VDOT) recent taking of 5,184 square feet of its property for the construction of highway improvement associated with the new Woodrow Wilson Bridge, Sun Trust Bank must file a new special exception application and site plan.  In addition, VDOT needs a 12-foot plus wide strip across the entire frontage of the site for a temporary construction easement adjacent to the taking.  This site, zoned in the C-8 District, appears in a Highway Corridor and Floodplain Overlay District, and falls within the Commercial Revitalization District.

 

With the highway taking, the bank will lose six of its 12 parking spaces and the other six spaces will be lost during the construction process.  The applicant believes that this is a situation that could put the bank out of business at this location if it is unable to recapture or relocate these parking spaces elsewhere on or adjacent to the site.  To this end, the bank has been negotiating with VDOT to acquire a portion of the adjoining property to the west (former Sun Oil site) equal in area to the land lost in the highway taking.  The plan shows an equal area land exchange in which the bank goes from its current 12 parking spaces to 26 parking spaces by relocating its drive-in window.  

 

As outlined in Supervisor Hyland’s written Board Matter, the applicant advises that a new special exception application will be required regardless of whether it uses the proposed new layout shown or if the drive-in window is left as is and provide only the number of parking spaces lost on the new land exchange area.  Thus, the bank has elected to proceed with the special exception and site plan providing the additional spaces.  This makes it imperative that the site plan and special exception application be worked together so that construction on the new parking spaces for the bank can be constructed prior to or simultaneously with any highway construction.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to expedite and concurrently process the Sun Trust special exception application, site plan and associated permits.  This motion, the second to which was inaudible, carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Kauffman and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

38.                   ABSENCE OF MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT SUPERVISOR HYLAND  (11:53 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland announced that he would be attending a memorial service for a citizen of the Mount Vernon District and, therefore, would not be present for today’s closed session.

 

39.                   SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION WEEK  (11:53 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross announced that the week of April 25-May 2 is Soil and Water Conservation Week in Virginia.  She said that while conservation-minded behavior should be encouraged year-round, Soil and Water Conservation Week brings special attention to the importance of natural resources.  She noted that this year’s theme “The Living Soil,” is especially appropriate as the County continues its work to reduce sediment and erosion in County ponds and streams.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board declare the week of April 25-May 2 as “Soil and Water Conservation Week” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite the members and staff of the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District to receive a proclamation at the April 26, 2004, Board meeting.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Kauffman, and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

40.                   REPORT OF THE COMMISSION ON AGING AND SCHEDULING OF A HUMAN SERVICES COMMITTEE MEETING  (11:54 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Gross stated that the Fairfax Area Commission on Aging prepared a report of its activities during 2003, which was the thirtieth anniversary year of the commission.  The report was distributed last month to Board Members by their appointees, and it outlines not only the commission’s activities, but also highlights some of the following issues that senior citizens face now and will face in the future:

 

·      A concern that maintaining current budget expenditures will not meet the needs of this growing population in the future.

 

·      The importance of partnerships with non-profit organizations to deliver services to seniors.

 

·      The need for more affordable assisted living as well as “visitable” housing now and in the future.

 

·      The future of long term care.

 

Supervisor Gross commended the Commission on Aging for its work on behalf of all senior residents in the County and urged Board Members to read the report.  She asked unanimous consent that the Board direct:

 

·      Staff to make the report available on the County’s website.

 

·      The Office of Public Affairs to highlight the findings of the report for interested media.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

On behalf of the Board, Supervisor Gross sent get well wishes to Grace Starbird, Director, Area Agency on Aging, who suffered a serious fall when she was out jogging.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to schedule a meeting of the Board’s Human Services Committee to include as an agenda item discussion of this report.  She noted that a number of items from the Long Term Care Task Force had been referred to the committee.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

41.                   INCLUDING PEOPLE WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES MONTH  (11:58 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Bulova stated that throughout the United States, March will be celebrated as Including People with Developmental Disabilities Month.  She said that in March in Fairfax County, the Arc of Northern Virginia, in conjunction with People First, a self-advocacy group for people with developmental disabilities, and the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB), will educate the public about the abilities and needs of people with developmental disabilities and their families.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim March as “Including People with Developmental Disabilities Month” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite the Arc and the CSB to appear before the Board on March 8, 2004, to accept this proclamation.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 


42.                   COMMUNITY DIALOG IN BRADDOCK DISTRICT  (11:59 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Bulova reminded the Board that last month she announced that she would be hosting a Community Dialog on Gang Activity and Revitalization Issues.  This dialog is a five-part series, beginning February 11 and concluding June 9.  While the dialog focuses on the Annandale area, where some gang activity is known to exist, the series is open to anyone interested in learning more about the emergency of gangs in this area and prevention programs and resources available.

 

Supervisor Bulova said that as part of the dialog, the US Department of Justice will be facilitating a weekend “Community Engagement” with stakeholders in the Annandale area.  Dialog sessions will include speakers such as Paul McNulty, US Attorney for the Eastern Division of Virginia, Jose Vanegas of Barrios Unidos, Mark Emery of the Partnership for Youth, and officials from the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.  The County’s Police Gang Unit will set the stage on February 11 with a description of gangs active in the County and what the community should be aware of.  The May session will examine the role revitalization can play in strengthening older communities.  Chairman Connolly, Supervisor Gross, and Braddock District School Board Member Tessie Wilson will participate in the last meeting of the series on June 9 when the discussion will involve tackling community challenges, particularly the emergence of gangs, at the grass roots level.

 

Supervisor Bulova distributed copies of a syllabus for the series, along with information about the Justice Department’s Community Engagement.  The dialog series will be held at Braddock Elementary School at 7825 Heritage Drive in Annandale.  Programs are scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m.  She asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to publicize this effort.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

43.                   AUTHORIZATION TO ADVERTISE A PUBLIC HEARING FOR REZONING/FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN APPLICATION RZ/FDP 2003-PR-037 (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (12:02 p.m.)

 

(A)                   Supervisor Smyth said that James Audia and Manuel Serra, the applicants for  pending Rezoning/Final Development Plan Application RZ/FDP 2003-PR-037, are seeking to rezone a 4.38 acre industrial property to residential.  During the review of the application, it was discovered that a narrow strip of land running along the Kingsbridge Drive frontage of the property is owned by the Board.  This parcel, less than five feet in width, separates the Beech Grove property from Kingsbridge Drive.

 

To provide safe and convenient access to Kingsbridge Drive from the Beech Grove property, access is desired across the Board's parcel.  The Facilities Management Division of Department of Public Works and Environmental Services indicated that the property is considered surplus and has negotiated the conveyance of the County-owned property to the applicant.  In accordance with Board Policy and Section 15.2-1800 of the Code of Virginia, a public hearing is required prior to the disposition of County-owned property.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board authorize the advertisement of a public hearing to be held before the Board on March 15, 2004, for the conveyance of County-owned property identified as Tax Map 48-3 ((25)) to James Audia and Manuel Serra and authorize scheduling of this public hearing concurrent with the public hearing associated with Rezoning Application RZ 2003-PR-037.  This action in no way relieves the applicant of any County regulations and requirements or indicates Board support for the pending zoning application.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Hyland, and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

44.                   CHOCOLATE CANDY ROSES  (12:04 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross distributed chocolate candy roses to Board Members and explained that the roses were made by the Children of the Morning Star Group, which is a program of Hispanics Against Child Abuse and Neglect.

45.                   INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 2002-DR-036 (DALEVIEW NURSERY, LLC AND MAISON ET JARDIN, LTD) (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT)  (12:04 p.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois announced her intent, later in the meeting, at the appropriate time, to defer the public hearing on Special Exception Application SE 2002‑DR‑036.

 

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

 

46.                   AUTHORIZATION TO ADVERTISE A PUBLIC HEARING FOR REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2003-DR-031 (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT)  (12:05 p.m.)

 

(A)                   Supervisor DuBois said that Winchester Homes, Incorporated, has submitted Rezoning Application RZ 2003-DR-031 for a residential property identified as Tax Map Parcels 440-2 ((1)) 20, 21, 22, 22A, 22B, 23, and 24A, and 40-2 ((34))-A.  The consolidated property is presently zoned R-1 and R-3, and the applicant is requesting rezoning to the PDH-5  District.

 

The Planning Commission hearing on this application was deferred to February 26, 2004, and subsequently to March 18, 2004, to provide staff, citizens, and the applicant more time to address some remaining concerns.  To accommodate several timing issues, the applicant requested that the Board authorize a date certain for the Board hearing.

 

Therefore, Supervisor DuBois moved that the Board authorize the advertisement of a public hearing to be held before the Board on March 29, 2004, at 3:30 p.m. regarding Rezoning Application RZ 2003-DR-031.  This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any consideration of the rezoning application in any way.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell, and Supervisor Frey being out of the room.

 

47.                   LETTER OF APPRECIATION TO STAFF AT FRYING PAN PARK (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (12:06 p.m.)

Supervisor Hudgins referred to the written Board Matter and outlined the accomplishments of the students.

 

Jointly with Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to invite the students to appear before the Board to receive recognition for their outstanding contributions to the community and for having been named the 2004 top youth volunteers in Virginia.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

49.                   TEMPORARY PEDESTRIAN FACILITIES IN THE RESTON TOWN CENTER (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (12:09 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that her office received several calls regarding the need for temporary pedestrian facilities in the Reston Town Center.  As the Town Center continues to expand, the Board is presented with a challenge to ensure that residents living in the area and visitors can safely walk to nearby attractions.  Residents of the Market Station development live very close to the Town Center, but due to ongoing construction projects, it is difficult for them to walk there.

 

Supervisor Hudgins noted that as the County grows in the future, it is important that the County provide safe non-motorized access around and through construction areas.  She added that a mix of residential, commercial, and retail uses allows residents to rely less on their vehicles for transportation only if the County can provide them with adequate alternative facilities.  

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that this matter be forwarded to the Development Process Committee for consideration.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, 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.

 

50.                   RESTON CHORALE’S WORLD PREMIER (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (12:11 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that on March 19, 2004, at 8 p.m., the Reston Chorale‘s World Premier of “A Journey to Freedom, Honor and Glory” composed by Julius P. Williams will take place.  The performance will honor the life and martyrdom of Jonathan Myrick Daniels.

 

Supervisor Hudgins noted that at the Alexandria campus of Northern Virginia Community College, under the direction of Frederick Wygal, the Chorale's performance will include narration by Del Walters, and solos by soprano Patricia Miller and tenor Harv Wileman.

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that underwritten by the generous gift of John and Sue Adney, the Reston Chorale commissioned the work to celebrate and educate the community on the humanitarian Jonathan Myrick Daniels.  The story of his commitment to the civil rights movement and his death while protecting the life of a young girl needs to be retold to a new generation and a future audience.  The Chorale has partnered with the Reston Community Center and the Reston Historic Trust, as well as Virginia Military Institute, to emphasize the enduring virtue of his personal sacrifice.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to share the news of this world premier to the greater County community.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Supervisor Hudgins encouraged Board Members to attend this historic performance.

 

51.                   REQUEST FOR A PROCLAMATION RECOGNIZING SCHOOL DIVISION SUPERINTENDENT DANIEL A. DOMENECH  (12:13 p.m.)

A brief discussion ensued.

 

52.                   BOARD RETREAT  (12:14 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Frey announced that a Board Retreat is scheduled for this upcoming weekend.   He expressed concern that a retreat has been scheduled 2.5 hours away from the County in Stanley, Virginia.

 

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board revise its plan and hold the retreat in the County.  Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Hudgins moved a substitute motion that the Board proceed with its plans to hold the retreat and make plans in the future to hold such retreats in Fairfax County on a regular basis.  Chairman Connolly seconded the motion.

 

Following additional discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, the question was called on the substitute motion and it CARRIED by a recorded vote of seven, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor McConnell voting "NAY," Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

The question was called on the main motion, as substituted, and it CARRIED by a recorded vote of eight, Supervisor Frey voting “NAY,” Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

Chairman Connolly expressed his appreciation to Supervisor McConnell for hosting the retreat.
