ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

 

NV:nv

 

56.                   APPOINTMENT TO THE AGRICULTURAL AND FORESTAL DISTRICT COMMITTEE  (6:58 p.m.)

 

(APPT)            With reference to his written Board Matters, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and moved the appointment of Supervisor Joan DuBois as the Board of Supervisors' appointee to the Agricultural and Forestal District Committee.  Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

57.                   PROTECTING THE WASHINGTON AND OLD DOMINION TRAIL  (6:59 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority's Washington and Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park (W&OD Trail) extends 45 miles through Arlington, Fairfax and Loudoun Counties, and the City of Falls Church and the Towns of Vienna, Herndon, Leesburg, Hamilton, and Purcellville and is considered the backbone of Northern Virginia's trail system.  The park is a popular recreational and environmental resource with citizens.  Recently Dominion Virginia Power proposed construction of a new, 230kv transmission line along the W&OD Trail right-of-way from east of Leesburg to east of Purcellville.  The construction of this transmission line would require the clearing of a 100-foot wide swath underneath the proposed power line.  It is estimated that along the 11-mile length of the proposed transmission line, 26,000 trees would have to be removed.  The construction would also eliminate the heavily used bridle path that parallels the main W&OD Trail in this location.  Additionally, the W&OD Trail in this area would be closed for nine months during construction.  Because of the significant nature of this project, it must receive approval from the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors in the form of a Special Exception and must also be approved by the State Corporation Commission (SCC).

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to contact both the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors and the SCC to express its deep concern about the ramifications of this project and to encourage Dominion Virginia Power to try alternative methods with less environmental impacts. Supervisor McConnell and Supervisor Smyth jointly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

Chairman Connolly clarified that staff should provide letters for review to send to Loudoun County, the SCC, and Virginia Power.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, there was additional discussion regarding the W&OD Trail.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#76.)

 

58.                   NATURAL LANDSCAPING  (7:01 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that at the Board's Environmental Committee meeting on Monday, June 14, 2004, the Committee discussed the County's air quality implementation plan.  However, the aggressive and widespread use of natural landscaping was not included in staff’s suggested implementation steps for the air quality protection strategy.  Employing this practice will not only help improve the air quality, but will also reduce the need and expense of mowing, pruning, edging, and using fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a specific plan to identify all County properties where natural landscaping could be used, where lawns could be reduced, to work with the Schools' staff to do the same, and report with a Countywide implementation plan.  Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

59.                   GUM SPRINGS GLEN WINS AWARD  (7:02 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) received the National Association of Counties' (NACo) 2004 Achievement Award for Gum Springs Glen, a 60-unit independent senior living facility that offers seniors of moderate income the opportunity to live in an affordable retirement community.  Awarded annually since 1970 as part of NACo's New County, USA campaign, the Achievement Award recognizes innovative county government programs called County Model Programs. 

 

On behalf of the Board, Chairman Connolly congratulated the FCRHA for another job well done and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to issue the appropriate communication from the Board to Gum Springs Glen and the FCRHA congratulating them on this achievement.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

60.                   ALL FAIRFAX READS  (7:03 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that in 1998 a Seattle librarian launched a national initiative called "One Book, One City," which invited citizens from across the nation to read the same book, in an effort to encourage community engagement.  The initiative was a huge success; hundreds of jurisdictions since then emulated the activity.  In a similar effort, this summer the Fairfax County Library, along with George Mason University and the Friends of the Reston Regional Library, will launch "All Fairfax Reads."  The library selected Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird for the inaugural venture of this event because it revolves around a community that learns to accept great diversity – such as Fairfax County.

 


Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to publicize this initiative, and invite representatives from the County Public Library, George Mason University, and the Friends of the Reston Regional Library to appear before the Board to receive a resolution recognizing this effort at the July 12, 2004, Board meeting.  Supervisor Gross and Supervisor McConnell jointly seconded the motion.

 

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

 

61.                   FAMILY DAY – A DAY TO EAT WITH YOUR CHILDREN  (7:04 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly stated that the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) has consistently reported that children in families that eat together regularly are far less likely to succumb to pressure to use alcohol and drugs.  Since 2001 CASA has hosted an annual event, "Family Day," to encourage families to eat with their children. This year CASA invited the County to participate in this event.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board proclaim September 27, 2004, as "Family Day – A Day to Eat Dinner With Your Children" in Fairfax County and direct the Office of Public Affairs to prepare and send a proclamation to the appropriate representative from CASA before September 27, 2004. 

 

Following brief comments, Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

62.                   FEE WAIVER FOR CLEMYJONTRI PARK (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT)  (7:05 p.m.)

 

Jointly with Supervisor DuBois, Chairman Connolly presented a Board Matter regarding Clemyjontri Park, the gift of Mrs. Adele Lebowitz who donated her 18‑acre estate in McLean to the Park Authority in 2000.  Her only request was that development of the park would include a playground where children with disabilities could enjoy a play experience that is truly without barriers.  Many persons in the private sector are working to attract private donations and in-kind private donations to make this happen.

 

Therefore, jointly with Supervisor DuBois, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board waive the requirement for the payment of review fees set forth in Section IV(C) of the procedures adopted by the Board on February 24, 2003, regarding proposals made pursuant to the Public-Private Educational Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002, for a proposal submitted to the County for the development of Clemyjontri Park in McLean for use by disabled children, provided that any such proposal include a donation by the party making the proposal of substantial materials or services, or both.  Supervisor DuBois seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

63.                   CERTIFICATE HONORING THE TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ANNANDALE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT PLANNING COMMITTEE, INCORPORATED (MASON DISTRICT)  (7:06 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross announced that next month will mark the twentieth anniversary of the Annandale Central Business District Planning Committee.  Starting under the name Annandale Beautification Committee, the group met for the first time in July of 1984.  Initially the citizen committee focused on the clean up and beautification of the Annandale business district.  Three years later, the group changed its name to the Annandale Central Business District Planning Committee and began envisioning a larger mission for the organization.  Today, the committee works closely with the Office of Revitalization and other County agencies on the revitalization of the Annandale Commercial Revitalization District.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to prepare an appropriate certificate for presentation to the Annandale Central Business District Planning Committee, Incorporated at the July 12, 2004, Board meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

64.                   APPOINTMENT TO THE POTOMAC WATERSHED ROUNDTABLE  (7:07 p.m.)

 

(APPT)            Supervisor Gross said that currently there is a vacant Alternate position for the County to be filled on the Potomac Watershed Roundtable, which she chairs.  Until recently, this alternate position was held by John Wesley White, former Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services.

 

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Acting Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, Jimmie D. Jenkins, be appointed to fill the Alternate position for the County.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

65.                   CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 2004-MA-003 (MASON DISTRICT)  (7:08 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross said that Loehmann's Plaza Limited Partnership has filed a special exception application on the property identified as Tax Map Parcel 50‑3‑((1))-5 and 5A.  This application includes a waiver of the open space requirement to implement improvements throughout the site.

 


Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to permit processing of the site plan associated with this pending application concurrently.  This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation on the special exception application by the Board, and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards.  Supervisor Smyth seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

66.                   AUTHORIZATION FOR AN OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT ON CHESAPEAKE BAY PLAN REQUIREMENTS  (7:09 p.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Gross said that on June 14, 2004, the Board's Environmental Committee received a briefing from staff regarding the development of the proposed amendments to the County's Comprehensive Plan and a related Comprehensive Plan supplement to satisfy the requirements of the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Area Designation and Management Regulations.  Staff noted that the public hearing dates before the Planning Commission and Board have been tentatively scheduled for this fall, but that the Board's authorization is needed for this proposed plan amendment to be forwarded for consideration.

 

Therefore, as Chair of the Environmental Committee, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board authorize consideration of an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment that would satisfy the Comprehensive Plan requirements of the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Area Designation and Management Regulations.  Chairman Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

67.                   ENDORSEMENT AND ADOPTION OF ENVIRONMENTAL EXCELLENCE 20-YEAR VISION PLAN FOR FAIRFAX COUNTY  (7:10 p.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Gross said that last week the Board's Environmental Committee reviewed the "Environmental Excellence" 20-year vision plan, copies of which were attached to her written Board Matter.  The plan is organized into six areas, including growth and land use, air quality and transportation, water quality, solid waste, parks/trails/open space, and environmental stewardship, and centers on two principles:

 

·        Conservation of the limited natural resources must be interwoven into all government decisions.

 

·        The County must be committed to provide the necessary resources to protect the environment.

 

Supervisor Gross said that the County already is a leader on environmental issues, both regionally and nationally, and the proposed 20-year vision plan will provide more guidance for Board Members, County staff, and the community when making decisions that have environmental impacts.  She noted that Chairman Connolly is one of the original drafters, along with a group of County residents.  The Environment Committee agreed to recommend that the plan be presented to the Board for consideration and ratification.

 

Therefore, as chairman of the Environmental Committee, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board endorse and adopt the Environmental Excellence 20-year vision plan for the County.  The County Executive will be directed to disseminate the plan to staff and the Environmental Coordinating Committee for follow-up action.  Chairman Connolly seconded the motion.

 

Supervisor Gross said that none of the recommendations in the vision plan will happen overnight. Some legislative changes may be necessary to accomplish the vision goals. It may mean changing the way staff decisions are made or implemented, and some of the plan will need strong community support to succeed.  If these important steps are taken now, the County’s children will be able to look back and see that the Fairfax County of 2024 was the beneficiary of some very important Board actions taken in 2004.

 

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

 

68.                   KIDSAVE INTERNATIONAL  (7:13 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Board was notified last fall that the Department of Family Services (DFS) planned to enter into a partnership with Kidsave International (Kidsave) to find adoptive homes for hard-to-place children who are in the foster care system.  The local program, Kidsave Fairfax Weekend Miracles, will provide children who have adoption plans with the opportunity to spend weekends with host families who will advocate to find families to adopt them.  The goal of the program is to enable families to meet foster care children through weekend visits, to introduce children to families who might be interested in adopting them, and to find each child who desires to participate in the program a permanent family or a connected relationship with at least one adult.

 

A partnership agreement was entered into by DFS and Kidsave on October 30, 2003.  On February 24, 2004, the Board co-hosted a breakfast with Kidsave International to celebrate the unveiling of Kidsave Fairfax Weekend Miracles.  DFS and Kidsave have been developing program protocols for staff and a curriculum for training host families and other volunteers.  The first children participating in the program will attend Kidsave adoptive home recruitment events in the community over the summer and will begin weekend visitation in the homes of host families in the fall.

 

Kidsave brought the County initiative to the attention of US Representatives Tom Davis, Jim Moran, and Frank Wolf in January 2004.  Representatives Davis and Moran submitted the Kidsave Fairfax Weekend Miracles initiative to the Labor, Health, and Human Services (HHS) Appropriations Subcommittee for funds in the amount of $269,995.  The funds will be used to support Kidsave International's costs for Fiscal Year 2005 for the program.  The subcommittee will mark up the bill later this summer.  It is Kidsave's goal to preserve the language in the Labor HHS appropriations request in the final appropriations legislation. It is anticipated that the Congress will vote on the bill in the fall.  Kidsave will be visiting the two congressmen in early July to remind them of the need for the funding.  Meetings will also be requested with the other members of the Virginia Congressional Delegation to inform them about the initiative.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board support this appropriation to fund Kidsave Fairfax Weekend Miracles and to authorize appropriate action in support of such appropriation, including a letter to the Congressional Delegation.  The second to this motion was inaudible.

 

Chairman Connolly stated that, if passed, this motion would direct staff to draft a letter for his signature in support of the appropriation.

 

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

 

69.                   CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR FAIRFAX WATER STAFF (7:17 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins shared the experience of one of her constituents with the Fairfax County Water Authority, now known as Fairfax Water, its newly adopted trade name.  She noted that Fairfax Water is a large and complex agency.

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that on the evening of Sunday, May 30, 2004, Mr. John Schilling of Reston was notified by a neighbor that his water meter was leaking.  Mr. Schilling quickly contacted Fairfax Water at approximately 5 p.m. to alert them of the problem.  In less than one hour's time, Mr. Steve Daniels of the Customer Service Field Division responded to the site.  To the great pleasure of Mr. Schilling, the problem was identified, a new water meter installed, and the issue resolved, saving costly expenses and aggravation.  Mr. Schilling contacted her office to convey his gratitude.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins said that considering that all utility services and their workers are often underappreciated and criticized, she asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to prepare and send a certificate of recognition to Charlie C. Crowder, Jr. General Manager; Dave Rasmussen, Director of Support Services Division; and Mr. Steve Daniels for Fairfax Water's quality and dependable service.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 


70.                   TRANSIT SHELTERS  (7:18 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that she received a letter about a program that provides state-of-the-art transit shelters to cities such as New York; Los Angeles; Philadelphia; Washington, DC; and Toronto.  Smart Street Solutions offers bus shelters that display advertisements and provides what they claim is cost effectiveness and cost savings.  The benefits they list include revenue sharing and the display of government sponsored service messages.  Smart Street Solutions replaces and expands the existing bus shelter program.  This program also offers on-the-spot maintenance providing emergency service, glass replacement, graffiti removal, illumination, structural integrity, and cleanliness by an in-house program.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to gain additional information about Smart Street Solutions and provide the Board with feedback.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

71.                   CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF CITIZENS  (7:19 p.m.)

 

                        Supervisor Hudgins said that more than 291 American governments have passed resolutions to ensure the constitutional rights of citizens.  Across the continent, from the state of Alaska to the state of Maine, elected officials have expressed their support for basic freedoms.  Locally, Montgomery County, Alexandria, and Arlington have petitioned State and federal officials to maintain national security while preserving individual liberty.

 

Supervisor Hudgins stated that numerous church groups, citizen activists, and individual citizens contacted her to bring their concerns to the attention of the greater community as well as before the Board.  She said that the document attached to her written Board Matter addresses many of their expressed concerns, issues that may have an adverse effect on County residents as well as County employees.  Therefore, she moved adoption of the Resolution as presented and requested wide dissemination.  Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

 

Discussion ensued, with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney.

 

Supervisor Kauffman pointed out that there is a lot of information and misinformation about the Patriot Act.  He found Slate's online four-part series, a Guide to the Patriot Act, to be the most informative and commended it to the Board and interested parties at http://slate.msn.com.  He distributed copies of the article, and pointed out some positive aspects of the Act and Fairfax County’s involvement with terrorists.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved a substitute motion that the Board direct the County Executive to have every County agency potentially impacted by provisions of the Patriot Act report how they have been directly benefited or harmed by this Act.  This would include County law enforcement agencies and libraries.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion.

 

Supervisor Bulova distributed an alternative resolution for Board Members to consider at an upcoming meeting.

 

Following further discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, the question was called on the substitute motion (Supervisor Kauffman’s), and it CARRIED by a recorded vote of five, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hudgins, and Supervisor McConnell voting “NAY,” Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to expedite the requested report.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

72.                   RESEARCH AND GATHERING OF INFORMATION REGARDING BUS RIDERSHIP (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (7:42 p.m.)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board took action regarding Fairfax Connector Route 105.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#16.)

 

On behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman said that questions have been raised about the advisability of continuing the Fairfax Connector 105 Service along Tis Well Drive.  This was the site of the tragic accident last week.  Questions remain about the quantity and points of origin for the ridership of that Fairfax Connector bus.  To make the best recommendation regarding the future of this route, the community, the staff, and the Board need to have accurate and up-to-date information regarding the ridership of the route by individuals who reside in the Mount Vernon House, the Mount Vernon Nursing Home, or utilize the mental health center.

 

Therefore, on behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to compile the relevant statistics on this route so that an informed decision may be made as to how to balance the needs of the community and the needs of the individuals who live in Mount Vernon House, the Mount Vernon Nursing Home, and the mental health center and that this information be provided no later than two weeks from today because of the urgency of this matter.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

73.                   REQUEST FOR EXPEDITED SCHEDULING OF REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2003-MV-045 (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (7:43 p.m.)

 

On behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman said that Rezoning Application RZ 2003-MV-045 involves a six-acre tract in the Mount Vernon District which is the last piece of an estate belonging to Mary Plaskett Evans, a descendant of the early settlers of Lorton.  There is a strong desire by Ms. Evans to conclude the consideration of the rezoning of this property before the end of the summer.  To accomplish that goal, the Board must consider this matter on August 2, 2004.

 

Supervisor Kauffman noted that the Planning Commission held a public hearing on May 27, 2004, and deferred its decision.  Due to limited Planning Commission meetings in June and July, it may not be possible to have a decision made by the Planning Commission in time to advertise and schedule the public hearing before the Board on August 2, 2004.  He added that the Board can agree to an expedited scheduling process and allow this to happen.

 

Therefore, on behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board grant expedited scheduling for Rezoning Application RZ 2003-MV-045, National Capital Land and Development, Incorporated to allow scheduling of a public hearing to be held before the Board on August 2, 2004.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

74.                   REQUEST FOR EXPEDITED SCHEDULING OF REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2004-MV-020 (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (7:44 p.m.)

 

On behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman said that Gunston Center, LLC, the applicant for Rezoning Application RZ 2004-MV-020, requested expedited processing.  Accordingly, on behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman moved expedited processing for Rezoning Application RZ 2004‑MV‑020.  He noted that this does not prejudice the consideration of the application in any way.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

75.                   BRIARWOOD TRACE DEVELOPMENT RECOGNITION (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (7:45 p.m.)

 

                        Supervisor Smyth recognized the Briarwood Trace Development as another example of the future of affordable housing in the County which has come about because of the commitments of the citizens of Briarwood, the Christopher Companies, Habitat for Humanity, and Fairfax County Housing and Community Development.

 

Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and, along with Supervisor Smyth, asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Christopher Companies, Habitat for Humanity, the Briarwood Citizens’ Association, and the Department of Housing and Community Development to appear before the Board at its July 12, 2004, meeting for a brief presentation and to thank them for their hard work regarding affordable housing in the County.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

                        Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

Supervisor Smyth invited Board Members and the public to the official groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, June 24, 2004, at 4 p.m. at Briarwood Trace.

 

76.                   PROTECTING THE WASHINGTON AND OLD DOMINION (W&OD) TRAIL  (7:46 p.m.)

 

                        (NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, action was taken on this issue.  See Clerk's Summary Item CL#57.)

 

                        Supervisor Smyth referred to the issue of clearing trees along the W&OD Trail in the County and she moved that the Board direct staff to report with information:

 

·        Regarding clear-cutting and replanting of trees.

 

·        So that the information can be provided to constituents.

 

                        Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to address the issue of  maintaining  trees for their aesthetic value versus the clear-cutting of trees necessary to protect power lines.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

                  Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

                        The question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

77.                   RETIREMENT OF JEAN V. WHITE, DIRECTOR, FAIRFAX COUNTY PARK FOUNDATION  (7:48 p.m.)

 

                        On behalf of Supervisor Frey, Supervisor McConnell said that Jean White will be retiring from the County on June 30, 2004, after 25 years of service.  Ms. White spent almost 20 years as Director of the Office of Public Affairs, during which time she worked with five different boards.  When she left the Office of Public Affairs, she was the longest tenured county public affairs director in the US.

 

                        She was a founder of the Virginia Communicators Association and President of the National Association of County Information Officers.  For the past three years Ms. White served the County as Executive Director of the Fairfax County Park Foundation.

 

                        Therefore, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. White to appear before the Board on July 12, 2004, to be honored for her many years of excellent work and commitment to Fairfax County.  Without objection it was so ordered.

78.                   BOARD POLICY REGARDING DEMOTED EMPLOYEES  (7:50 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman referred to an article in the Washington Post on June 20, 2004, regarding the recent problems within the Department of Telecommunications and Consumer Services, which indicated that the Board has a Policy whereby demoted employees do not see a concurrent demotion in their salaries.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to report to the Board's Personnel Committee on options for changing this Policy.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

79.                   REQUEST FOR AN OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT (LEE DISTRICT)  (7:51 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman said that as part of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge improvement, the exit ramps from the Beltway to Telegraph Road will be altered. Several businesses on the west side of Telegraph Road between Huntington Avenue and Lenore Lane have been acquired to accommodate the new ramp system.

 

Supervisor Kauffman explained that the new system will realign and extend what is now East Drive across Telegraph Road to Lenore Lane.  The road connection will change the orientation of tax map parcel 83-1 ((01)) 009, a vacant property located on Burgundy Road.  The parcel is planned and zoned for office use, but adjacent properties are planned for retail use due to their orientation and proximity to Telegraph Road.  There is a need to examine whether this parcel also may be appropriate for retail use as the result of this change in circumstances.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment to consider retail use at an intensity up to .25 floor area ratio for tax map parcel 83-1 ((01)) 9.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

80.                   REQUEST FOR AN OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT (BEACON GROVETON CORE AREA) (LEE DISTRICT)  (7:52 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman said that parcel 92-2 ((1)) 13A is located south of Memorial Street on Richmond Highway in Land Unit D in the Beacon Groveton area.  The parcel is currently planned for office use at .70 floor area ratio (FAR).  Given its proximity to the Beacon Groveton core area, the Groveton Community believes it would be worthwhile to consider this area for high density residential mixed use. The Beacon Groveton CBC core is planned for the highest intensities in the Richmond Corridor, and residential use may be an appropriate extension of the envisioned activity center.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize an Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment to consider high density residential with support retail and office use at an FAR of 1.8. Supervisor DuBois seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

·        Ms. Shirley Magalis - three year term

 

·        Ms. Eleanor "Joyce" Hearst - three year term

 

Supervisor DuBois seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey and Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

82.                   REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR TOM FARLEY, DISTRICT ADMINISTRATOR FOR THE NORTHERN VIRGINIA DISTRICT, VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (VDOT)  (7:54 p.m.)

Supervisor Kauffman referred to his written Board Matter and outlined Mr. Farley's service to Northern Virginia.
