(BACs)            Supervisor Hudgins moved to reconsider the Board’s action on C-1 – Approval of Proposed Revisions to the MOU Between the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the RCC Board of Governors from the May 24, 2004, Board meeting.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, and it carried by a recorded vote of eight, Supervisor DuBois and Supervisor Frey abstaining because they were absent from that meeting.

 

Supervisor Hudgins moved approval of the revised MOU between the Board of Supervisors and the RCC Board of Governors that was attached to the Board Agenda Item from May 24, 2004.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

24.                   WEEK OF GREAT CONFERENCES  (11:25 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Chairman Connolly announced that last week the County held two summits.  One was the affordable housing summit and the other was the “Early Learning is Good Business” summit, which focused on early childhood learning. 

 

Chairman Connolly noted that one of the recommendations from the affordable housing summit is to create a task force focused on preservation.  He said that he and Supervisor Hudgins would return with the structure and suggested membership of that task force.

 

A brief discussion ensued regarding these exceptional conferences.

 

25.                   CERTIFICATE OF PUBLIC NEED GOVERNING BODY NOTIFICATION  (11:28 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Chairman Connolly reminded the Board that beginning July 1, 2004, local health planning agencies will be required to notify local governing bodies when a Certificate of Public Need application is filed in their jurisdictions.  He provided copies of the resolution that created the County’s Health Care Advisory Board (HCAB).  Because the HCAB is responsible for coordinating the activities of the Board with the County Executive and other County agencies, he asserted that the HCAB is clearly appropriate for the responsibility of notifying the Board of these applications.

 

                        Accordingly, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and moved that the Board designate the HCAB as the responsible party for notifying the Board when a Certificate of Public Need application is filed beginning July 1, 2004, as required by House Bill 391 and Senate Bill 86.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Gross being out of the room.

 

26.                   SUBSTANCE ABUSE AWARENESS WEEK  (11:28 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that substance abuse awareness week is an annual event that provides a series of educational programs throughout the County on a variety of substance abuse treatment and prevention topics.  He moved that the Board proclaim November 15-19, 2004, as “Substance Abuse Awareness Week” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite the appropriate representatives from the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board and others to receive the proclamation at the November 15, 2004, Board meeting.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

27.                   CHESS CHAMPIONS  (11:29 a.m.)

 

Jointly with Supervisor Frey, Chairman Connolly announced that the Bull Run Elementary School chess team won the 2004 Virginia State Scholastic Chess Championship.  Jointly with Supervisor Frey, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite the members of the Bull Run Elementary School chess team to appear before the Board to be presented with certificates commending their achievement at the June 21, 2004, Board meeting.  Supervisor Frey seconded the motion.

 

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

 

28.                   HOUSING ASSOCIATION OF NONPROFIT DEVELOPERS (HAND) AWARD  (11:30 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly reminded the Board that the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (RHA) received the “Best Project of the Year in Northern Virginia Housing Achievement Award” from HAND for Gum Springs Glen, a very successful mixed use project and public-private partnership located along Richmond Highway.  This 60-unit independent senior living facility offers seniors of moderate income the opportunity to live in an affordable retirement community and is a perfect example of an innovative solution to battling the affordable housing crisis facing Fairfax today.

 

Accordingly, jointly with Supervisor Hyland, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite the appropriate representatives from the RHA and Gum Springs Glen to appear before the Board to be recognized for this outstanding achievement at the June 21, 2004, Board meeting.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

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

 

29.                   AMERICAN YOUTH PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA  (11:32 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that the American Youth Philharmonic Orchestra gives approximately 400 promising young musicians from over 100 schools throughout the region the opportunity to progress and excel not only as musicians, but also as future community leaders.  The 2004-2005 concert season will mark the fortieth anniversary of this outstanding organization.

 

Accordingly, Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the American Youth Philharmonic Orchestra to be presented with a resolution to honor and recognize their fortieth anniversary and accomplishments throughout the region at the September 13, 2004, Board meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

30.                   HEPATITIS AWARENESS DAY  (11:32 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that on June 26, 2004, citizens throughout the region will participate in the annual Tim Harmon Run-Walk in memory of Tim Harmon, the past director of Residential Services for Alcohol and Drug Services, in an effort to educate and raise the awareness of citizens of the impact that Hepatitis C has on both individuals and their families while also keeping the memory of a dedicated public official alive.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board proclaim June 26, 2004, as “Hepatitis Awareness Day” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite appropriate representatives from the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board, the Health Department, and the Fire and Rescue Department to be presented with the proclamation at the June 21, 2004, Board meeting.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

31.                   INTRODUCTION OF DRANESVILLE DISTRICT SUMMER INTERN  (11:33 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois introduced Ryan Fay, the new summer intern for her office.  He is a third year student at the University of Virginia.

 

32.                   MEDIA COVERAGE OF THE HERNDON FESTIVAL (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT)  (11:34 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois expressed her grave concern over the negative television coverage of the recent Herndon Festival.  The media implied that there were safety concerns for violence at this annual family-oriented community festival.  She noted that police coverage is routine at these events.  She praised the Herndon Town Council, and specifically the Herndon parks and recreation director, for providing the community with such a wonderful event.

 

A brief discussion ensued.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board made additional mention of this media coverage.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#34.)

 

33.                   SCHEDULING OF THE PUBLIC HEARING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 2004-PR-016 (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (11:38 a.m.)

 

(A)                   Supervisor Smyth stated that Prentiss Properties Acquisition Partners, LP filed Special Exception Application SE 2004-PR-016 for the Willow Oaks Corporate Center to permit the University of Phoenix, an accredited university, to have a second location in Fairfax County.  The corporate center is zoned C-3 and, while schools are deemed a by-right use, universities require a special exception.  She asserted that this university would contribute to the revitalization of Merrifield by allowing residents and workers an opportunity to pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees locally.  With most students attending classes at this university after normal working hours, additional traffic impact should be limited.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board direct staff to change the public hearing date for Special Exception Application SE 2004-PR-016 in the name of Prentiss Properties Acquisition Partners LP, located at Tax Map 49-3((1)) 140 from September 27, 2004, at 3:30 p.m. to August 2, 2004, at 4 p.m.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

 

Supervisor Smyth added that this motion does not prejudice in any way the consideration of this pending application.

 

The question was called on this motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

34.                   MEDIA COVERAGE OF INCIDENTS  (11:39 a.m.)

 

(Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed the negative media coverage of the Herndon Festival.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#32.)

 

Supervisor Gross echoed Supervisor DuBois’ concerns about media coverage of incidents.  She invited representatives of the media to cover the County’s after school programs, library programs, and other kinds of intervention programs designed to alleviate gang activity and help children make the right decisions.

35.                   EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS FOR COMMUNITY ASSOCIATIONS  (11:40 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Bulova said that a community association president asked if there was some kind of a plan for activating community associations when an incident is expected or has occurred, pointing out that when power is out, for instance, neighborhoods could help with disseminating information and looking in on each other.  She is familiar with the Community Emergency Response Team training that her sister community, Canterbury Woods, has undergone, but hoped there was something less intensive than that, more focused on communication.

 

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this issue to Volunteer Fairfax and to staff responsible for developing contingency plans for emergency preparedness in the County and that a response be provided to the Board.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

36.                   ROBINSON MIDDLE SCHOOL AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS (BRADDOCK DISTRICT)  (11:41 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Bulova said that she attended a planning meeting last month for an after-school program for middle school students at Robinson Secondary School.  The meeting was facilitated by Susan Lydick, Coordinator of the Robinson Community Coalition, and was attended by a number of Robinson pyramid parents and representatives for the Partnership for Youth and Safe and Drug Free Youth.  The program was being planned to be held at the Mott Community Center, with transportation provided from Robinson Secondary School.  She said that parents were very enthusiastic about the program, and had an interesting discussion about its cost.  As presented, the after-school program is supposed to be free to parents.  Parents at the meeting felt that they should be charged something for enrolling their children in the program.  Their reasons were:

 

·        They were already paying for SACC and they would expect to be charged.

 

·        If they paid for the program, they would feel committed to have their children attend, rather than feeling that attendance was optional.

 

·        A program requiring some payment would be viewed as more of a "professional" enterprise and that a "free" program would be construed as being a less professional "volunteer" effort.

 

·        Funding collected from parents could be used to subsidize parents who cannot afford the cost.  The funds could also be used to help with transportation costs to help sustain the program.

 

Supervisor Bulova said that she was very impressed with these remarks and offered to take their recommendation to the Board.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board refer to staff  the issue of charging parents for Middle School After-School Programs on a sliding scale (like School Age Child Care), listing the reasons raised by Robinson Secondary School parents and that a response be provided to the Board.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Acting Chairman McConnell and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to include the Partnership of Youth on the list.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Acting Chairman McConnell returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County's recreation staff to work closely with the school system to determine if existing programs could be modified or expanded rather than creating new programs.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to:

 

·        Work with the School Board to review the current array of after‑school programs to assess what the needs are versus what is already out there and then determine how to fill the voids.

 

·        Include the Virginia Extension Service on the list.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

37.                   REFILING OF REZONING APPLICATION NUMBER RZ 2003-HM-042 (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (11:45 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that Rezoning Application RZ 2003-HM-042 was filed to rezone Tax Map parcels 28-4 ((1)) 22B and 23, situated at the end of Irvin Street.  One side of the property is traversed by Bartholomew Court, which has been used by the public for decades.  The rezoning application proposes to extend Irvin Street into the site to Bartholomew Court at the far end of the property and include Bartholomew Court in the application property for the rezoning.  The County Attorney, the applicant, and staff reviewed this matter and concluded that, although the Board may not have formally accepted the dedication of Bartholomew Court as a public right-of-way, given the decades of public use of this roadway, it would be appropriate for the Board to consider abandoning any rights to Bartholomew Court, which will then revert to the owner of the application property.  The new development would result in a public street being closer to the homes currently served by Bartholomew Court.  To proceed with the rezoning application, Bartholomew Court needs to be included in the land area of the rezoning application.  Supervisor Hudgins said that she understands that the application to abandon Bartholomew Court will be filed by the applicant for future consideration by the Board.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board concur in the filing of a rezoning application that includes Bartholomew Court.  This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board on the rezoning application or the application to abandon Bartholomew Court and does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of all applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

38.                   REQUEST FOR DEE COTTON TO RECEIVE A RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING THE HISTORICAL ROLE OF "ROSIE THE RIVETER" IN THE NATION'S HISTORY  (11:47 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that in the past month the nation has stopped and reflected on the contributions made by the Greatest Generation, those whose efforts are highly valued for making the "World Safe for Democracy."  The generation that went to war was supported on the home front by more than 6 million women who filled positions traditionally held by men.  While symbolized nationally by "Rosie the Riveter," women across America worked as welders, engineers, managers; working on production lines, they made military equipment at record speeds.  Women entering the work force in non-traditional roles in record number dramatically increased both gender equity and racial integration.  Because so many women entered the work place, it created public acceptance for employer sponsored child care.  A great deal of change occurred with little fanfare.  Supervisor Hudgins said that Reston is fortunate to have its own "Rosie the Riveter," Dee Cotton.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board pay tribute to all of the County's "Riveters" and direct staff to invite Ms. Cotton to appear before the Board on behalf of all Rosie the Riveters to receive a Resolution recognizing the historical role of "Rosie the Riveter" in the nation's history.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

39.                   CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR THE NEWLY INSTALLED MEMORIAL PLAQUE DEDICATED TO THE FORMER CIVIL WAR SOLDIERS OF THE TWENTY-SIXTH REGIMENT, FREED SLAVES, FORMER SLAVES, AND THEIR DESCENDANTS (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (11:48 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that Memorial Day traditionally provides the community with an opportunity to honor those who have served the nation in wars both foreign and domestic.  This past Memorial Day the Vienna community had a rare moment to reflect on the Civil War service to the Union Army by soldiers in the twenty-sixth Regiment under the leadership of Captain H. L. Salisbury.  Through Captain Salisbury's efforts, a cemetery for the former soldiers of the twenty-sixth Regiment, freed slaves, former slaves, and their descendants was established.  In 1892, the land he purchased was transferred originally to the United Order of the Sons and Daughters of the Liberty Lodge Number Nine.  In 1986, the last remaining Lodge trustee deeded the cemetery ownership to First Baptist Church of Vienna.  A plaque to recognize this cemetery's illustrious history was unveiled on May 31, 2004.

 


Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board pay tribute to the community's past and direct staff to:

 

·        Prepare and send a Certificate of Recognition for the newly installed memorial plaque to First Baptist Church of Vienna.

 

·        Widely disseminate the location of this historic location.

 

·        Include cemetery information in the next printing of the African American Landowners, Churches, Schools, and Businesses (1860-1900) map.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

40.                   PROPOSED RESOLUTION REGARDING THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF CITIZENS  (11:49 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that she has a proposed resolution regarding the Constitutional Rights of Citizens that she will circulate to Board Members for input.  She said that she would present it at the next meeting.

41.                   FLAG CEREMONY (SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT)  (11:50 p.m.)

 

Supervisor McConnell announced that she attended the Greenbriar East flag ceremony provided by the first graders.

 

42.                   REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR MR. BARRY BRADY (LEE DISTRICT)  (11:51 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman said that on Friday, June 3, 2004, Barry Brady retired as General Manager of the Hilton Springfield.  He referred to his written Board Matter and outlined Mr. Brady's accomplishments.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Brady to appear before the Board at a future meeting for formal recognition and that a certificate be prepared to present to Mr. Brady for his many years of service.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

A brief discussion ensued with input from Merni Fitzgerald, Director, Office of Public Affairs.

 


43.                   CORRECT MAINTENANCE OF TREES UNDER COUNTY CONTRACTS  (11:53 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said Mr. Alfred Aitken attended the Fairfax Tree Forum II and received information regarding proper mulching of trees.  However, he did see examples of trees being maintained through County contracts which do not conform to the guidelines for mulching described at the Tree Forum. 

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board:

 

·        Refer these issues to staff for review of the current tree maintenance contracts and the information provided at the Fairfax Tree Forum II.

 

·        Direct staff to report with recommendations for any needed policy or procedural changes in amending or letting such contracts.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

44.                   RECOGNITION OF THE THIRTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CARTER GOSPEL SINGERS (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:54 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said that the Carter Gospel Singers were organized in 1970 when Juanita Gibson (mother of Mayre Elizabeth Thomas from the Gum Springs community) needed backup singers for skits and poetry readings being performed in conjunction with the Urban League throughout metropolitan Washington.  The group recently celebrated its thirty-fifth anniversary with a concert at Woodlawn United Methodist Church.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a certificate of recognition for the Carter Gospel Singers on the occasion of their thirty-fifth anniversary and that arrangements be made to have the current and past members of the group appear before the Board and perform subject to time and space limitations.  Chairman Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

A brief discussion ensued.

 

45.                   RECOGNITION OF THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE WEST POTOMAC HIGH SCHOOL STEP TEAM (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:55 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said on Saturday, March 27, 2004, the West Potomac High School Step Team traveled to Atlanta, Georgia for the Regional Step Off Competition.  The team won in three categories -- Best Theme, Best Spirit, and first place - Southeast Regional Champions.  It competed against 30 teams from Maryland to Florida.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to prepare a certificate of recognition congratulating the West Potomac High School Step Team on the occasion of the Southeast Regional Championship and that arrangements be made to have the team appear before the Board to accept the recognition.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

A brief discussion ensued.

 

46.                   NAMING OF QUANDER BROOK (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:56 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland stated that at its Wednesday, May 26 meeting, the Mount Vernon Council of Citizens Associations discussed and passed a resolution recommending and requesting the naming of an unnamed tributary to Hunting Creek originating from various spring sources in the Spring Bank neighborhoods to be officially named Quander Brook.  This name is in recognition of the Quander family and their historical connection to, and involvement with, the Spring Bank area.  The resolution further asks the Board to acknowledge the naming of this unnamed tributary and to notify staff of such action.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board name this tributary Quander Brook and direct staff to take appropriate action to survey, and add the name to the current electronic version of County maps and all future versions of County maps.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

                        A brief discussion ensued.

 

47.                   INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2003-MV-059 (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:58 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland announced his intent, later in the meeting at the appropriate time, to defer the public hearing on Rezoning Application RZ 2003-MV-059 until July 26, 2004, at 3 p.m.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the public hearing was formally deferred.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#59.)

 


48.                   INTENT TO DEFER THE PUBLIC HEARING ON SPOT BLIGHT ABATEMENT ORDINANCE FOR 4800 OLD MILL ROAD (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT  (11:58 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland announced his intent, later in the meeting at the appropriate time, to defer the public hearing on Spot Blight Abatement Ordinance for 4800 Old Mill Road until July 26, 2004, at 3 p.m.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the public hearing was formally deferred.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#53.)

 

49.                   MASTERFILE PLANS AND PERMITS MUST COMPLY WITH THE 2000 UNIFORM STATEWIDE BUILDING CODE  (11:59 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Frey said that beginning on October 1, 2004, all masterfile plans and permits must comply with the 2000 Uniform Statewide Building Code.  Currently, the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services has more than 2400 plans on file for house-types utilizing the master plan system.  These plans all need to be revised and reviewed to ensure compliance with current standards if they are intended to be used for construction beginning October 1, 2004.  Any plans which are not revised by this date will be discarded, and all new plans will be required.  It is his understanding that it is currently taking approximately six to eight weeks to review the current residential workload of approximately 140-150 new residential plans per month.

 

Supervisor Frey noted that to date, a very small number of masterfile plans have been resubmitted, which indicates impending delays as the deadline approaches for compliance.  He added that he has emailed a number of residential builders reminding them of this deadline and encouraging them to file new plans expeditiously.

 

Supervisor Frey said that this issue has been the subject of two letters to the industry which provide greater detail.  The letters can be reviewed at the following website:

(c)        Consultation with legal counsel and briefings by staff members or consultants pertaining to actual or probable litigation, and consultation with legal counsel regarding specific legal matters requiring the provision of legal advice by such counsel pursuant to Virginia Code § 2.2-3711(A)(7).

ACTIONS FROM CLOSED SESSION

56.                   PURCHASE OF HISTORIC GRAVESITE (MASON DISTRICT)  (3:58 p.m.)

 

(R)                   Supervisor Gross noted that it has come to her attention that there is an abandoned graveyard in the Mason District that the Fairfax County Park Authority has been maintaining for many years. The graveyard is located on property that contains approximately 8,000 square feet, is zoned to the R-3 District, and is identified on the Fairfax County Tax Assessment Map as 72-2((7)) parcel 15A.  This property is an integral part of two other parcels of property the Park Authority has been leasing for public park purposes, which parcels are identified on the Fairfax County Tax Assessment Map as 72-2((7)) parcels 1 and 15. The cemetery property has historical significance because it was established in the 18th century, is registered as an archaeological site with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources, and a Revolutionary War soldier is buried there. Because of the cemetery's historical significance and because of its proximity to other property that is used for public park purposes, I believe that the cemetery property should be acquired by the County for public park purposes.

 

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board adopt a Resolution which authorizes and directs the County Attorney to acquire, on behalf of the Board as soon as possible, the fee simple absolute interest in the cemetery property by gift, purchase, eminent domain, or otherwise.   Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor DuBois, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Smyth, and Chairman Connolly voting "AYE," Supervisor Kauffman being out of the room.
