12.                   I-3 – INFORMATION REGARDING “DULLES TOLL ROAD TOLL FACILITIES REVOLVING FUND”  (11:03 a.m.)

 

The Board next considered an item contained in the Board Agenda dated January 24, 2005, regarding the Dulles Toll Road Toll Facilities Revolving Fund.

 

Supervisor Hudgins noted that the response to the Board’s concerns were contained in a letter from Whittington Clement, Virginia Secretary of Transportation.  Supervisor Hudgins pointed out that while there were still questions that remained, she was particularly concerned about:

 

·        The amount of revenue being collected from the tolls.

 

·        How that revenue was being used.

 

·        How the County was meeting what was an early 1990s resolution that required an allocation of surplus toll funds be set aside for transit.

 

·        How the tolls might be implemented and assurances that the increases would be relative to what was needed and not beyond.

 

Richard Stevens, Dulles Rail Project Coordinator, Department of Transportation, stated that Supervisor Hudgins had identified most of the items that were contained in a letter that the County planned to send to the Virginia Department of Transportation.  He noted that the State had not yet released its study on the toll road with regard to increasing the tolls, so the County was not aware of what the excess toll revenue would be on an annual basis. 

 

Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and announced that he had circulated to Board Members a draft letter to Secretary Clement incorporating Supervisor Hudgins’ points, and asked unanimous consent that he be authorized to sign that letter and send it to Secretary Clement for the additional information.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that a letter be prepared for his signature and that of Supervisor Hudgins to send to the leaders of the Western Alliance for Rail to Dulles incorporating this information so that they have it as well.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Vice Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 


BOARD MATTERS

 

NV:nv

 

13.                   AUTHORIZATION TO SEND LETTER REGARDING REIMBURSEMENT FOR PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURAL  (11:10 a.m.)

 

With reference to his written Board Matter regarding reimbursement for the presidential inauguration, copies of which were distributed to the Board, Chairman Connolly noted the importance of the quadrennial inauguration ceremony.  However, he objected to the fact that the Federal Government shortchanged the region by requiring the District of Columbia (DC) to use its Homeland Security funds to pay for the reimbursement of the cost for the additional security required in the first inaugural ceremony in the post September 11, 2001, world.  Because the County participated in providing enhanced security in downtown DC in the inaugural week, he stressed the importance of regional consensus about this matter. 

 

Accordingly, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and moved that the Board direct the County Executive to work with the participating jurisdictions on a letter for his signature, and perhaps others in the region, to the congressional representatives expressing these concerns and asking for their immediate assistance in mediating them.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion. 

 

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

 

14.                   IMPACT ON REAL ESTATE TAX RATE REDUCTION OF GENERAL ASSEMBLY LIMITING LOCALITIES’ MEALS TAX AUTHORITY  (11:13 a.m.)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed a report on General Assembly activities.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#6.)

 

Chairman Connolly stated that members of the General Assembly introduced a number of bills that would affect the existing meals tax in various jurisdictions.  Several bills would restrict the ability of cities and towns to enact meals taxes in their respective jurisdictions, requiring some to pass referenda.  This would affect a number of cities and towns in the local area.

 

Accordingly, Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to determine and inform the Board how many additional cents the Board could reduce the real estate tax rate if the County had a meals tax similar to the surrounding jurisdictions so that the Board may communicate this potential additional real estate tax rate reduction ability to local General Assembly members.   Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

15.                   ADULT-ORIENTED BUSINESSES  (11:14 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly noted that an adult video chain recently opened a store in Centreville near the Historic District and a child-care facility.  Since the opening of this establishment, his office received correspondence from constituents from all parts of the County urging the Board to further define what constitutes an adult business based on the products they sell or rent.  Many of these constituents state that Fairfax County has the authority to enact measures without infringing on anyone’s right to free speech, and that many localities have done so.  Several years ago the Board asked staff to opine on the subject of such businesses, and several options were put forth, but not adopted.  He asserted that it is time to take another look at this issue.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive, the County Attorney, and any other County staff relevant to this issue, to investigate the requests of the citizens and report with dispatch to the Board with options for Board consideration regarding further regulation of these businesses.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Frey asked to amend the motion to:

 

·        Incorporate this item into the staff’s draft priority one zoning ordinance amendments.

 

·        Direct the County Attorney to recirculate his memorandum from 1996 on the subject and provide any legal updates.

 

This was accepted.

 

Following further discussion, Chairman Connolly clarified that the request included anything in the intervening nine years that gives the Board more leeway on the subject and the ability of other communities to regulate regarding this issue.

 

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

16.                   NATIONAL ENGINEERS WEEK  (11:18 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly noted that it is time for the annual National Engineers Week.  Therefore, he asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim February 20-26, 2005, “Engineers Week” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite appropriate representatives from the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services and other engineer representatives to receive the proclamation at the February 7, 2005, Board meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

17.                   WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH  (11:19 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that it is time for National Women’s History Month in March.  Therefore, he asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim March 2005 as “Women’s History Month” in Fairfax County and invite appropriate representatives from the Office of Equity Programs and the Office for Women to receive the proclamation at the February 28, 2005, Board meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

There was a brief inquiry to Merni Fitzgerald, Director, Office of Public Affairs, regarding the number of scheduled presentations.

 

18.                   RETIREMENT OF WALTER MESS FROM THE NORTHERN VIRGINIA REGIONAL PARK AUTHORITY (NVRPA)  (11:19 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Chairman Connolly announced that Walter Mess, a member of the NVRPA’s Board since its inception in 1959, is retiring from service.  He served as its Chairman for 30 years, only the second chairman since its founding.  Though he represents the City of Falls Church on the NVRPA Board, Mr. Mess’ service to the County and to the region has been invaluable.

 

Accordingly, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Mess to appear before the Board to be recognized for his decades of public service to the NVRPA and to the citizens of Northern Virginia.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion regarding the fact that Mr. Mess recently celebrated his ninetieth birthday, the question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

19.                   SEVENTEENTH ANNUAL POTOMAC WATERSHED STREAM CLEANUP  (11:20 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that the County is about to celebrate the Annual Potomac Watershed Cleanup.  The Fairfax Watershed Network is a dedicated group of organizations, agencies, and individuals that support and promote the improvement and protection of the County's streams and watersheds through outreach and education efforts. 

 

Chairman Connolly announced that the Seventeenth Annual Potomac Watershed Cleanup will be held on Saturday, April 2 from 9 a.m. until noon, rain or shine.   The cleanup, which has been growing steadily over the years, is sponsored by the Alice Ferguson Foundation, which will provide various supplies.  Last year over 3,600 volunteers across the region participated in the event and removed 162 tons of trash from the watershed in three hours.  In Reston alone, 121 volunteers helped remove 3.2 tons of trash from Reston's streams, and in Mason Neck, over 20 miles of shoreline were cleaned of trash.

 

Accordingly, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board:

 

·        Declare April 2, the first Saturday in April, as “Fairfax Clean Stream Day” in Fairfax County and reiterate its support of stream cleanup efforts throughout the County.

 

·        Direct the Office of Public Affairs to disseminate this information to the public to encourage participation in this event. 

 

·        Direct staff, at the appropriate time before or after the event, to invite the appropriate representatives to appear before the Board to receive a proclamation.

 

Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and noted that she had planned a similar Board Matter for presentation today.  She asked to amend the motion to direct staff to waive the fees at the waste-to-energy facility for disposal of trash collected by the volunteer teams, and this was accepted.

 

Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that this Board Matter be considered a joint Board Matter with Supervisor Gross.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

20.                   FAIRFAX COUNTY GANG PREVENTION COUNCIL HOSTS FIRST SUMMIT  (11:23 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that the Fairfax County Gang Prevention Council will host a Gang Prevention Summit on the morning of February 25 at the Fairfax County Government Center.  The Board and members of the public are welcome.  More details will follow.

 

Vice- Chairman Bulova relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Kauffman and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to distribute information regarding this event.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Acting-Chairman Kauffman returned the gavel to Vice-Chairman Bulova.

 

21.                   TELEWORK AND COUNTY CONTRACTS  (11:24 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly reminded the Board that the County is setting the pace for local governments in the race to meet the regional goal of 20 percent of eligible employees’ teleworking by the end of this year.  Recently a regional conference was held in Tysons Corner to expand the effort to encourage private companies to set and meet similar goals.  He asserted that it is critical to the region’s air quality, traffic congestion relief, and continuity of operations in emergencies from weather to Homeland Security, that the County continue to look for opportunities to encourage more and more employers to set up telework programs.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to explore with staff the feasibility of requiring or encouraging companies that bid on County contracts to have telework programs for their employees in place and report to the Board in a timely manner.  Supervisor Smyth seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion in reference to air quality, Supervisor Kauffman asked to amend the motion to direct staff to include the feasibility of requiring or encouraging companies bidding on County construction projects to use off-road vehicle pollution control devices.  This was accepted.

 

Following further brief discussion, the question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being out of the room.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

22.                   TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE GREATER MERRIFIELD BUSINESS ASSOCIATION (GMBA) (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (11:26 a.m.)

 

Jointly with Chairman Connolly, Supervisor Smyth announced that the GMBA is celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year.  Merrifield has undergone tremendous change over the past 20 years, transforming from a light industrial/warehouse and distribution district into a major employment center with substantial residential development.  GMBA was among the first to recognize the underutilized potential of Merrifield and played an important role in the most recent efforts to re-plan portions of Merrifield to accommodate pedestrian oriented mixed uses.  With the ongoing implementation of the Merrifield Plan, including the development of a town center and transit oriented mixed uses, she said that Merrifield is again poised for dramatic changes.

 

To recognize the positive contributions GMBA has made to the County, Supervisor Smyth, jointly with Chairman Connolly, moved that the Board direct staff to invite the officers of GMBA to appear before the Board to formally commemorate and recognize its twentieth anniversary.  Chairman Connolly seconded the motion.

 

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

 


23.                   TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE MERRIFIELD FIRE AND RESCUE STATION NUMBER 30 (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (11:28 a.m.)

 

Jointly with Chairman Connolly, Supervisor Smyth announced that the Department of Fire and Rescue commemorated the twenty-fifth anniversary of the opening of the Merrifield Fire and Rescue Station, Station Number 30.  The celebration was scheduled for Saturday, January 22, but it was postponed because of the snow.  The Station actually opened on December 10, 1979.  The Merrifield Fire and Rescue Station is located at 8739 Lee Highway, which is also the address of the Providence District Supervisor's Office.  Supervisor Smyth said that the commemoration of the twenty-fifth anniversary will include the dedication of Tower Ladder 430 in memory of Captain Wilfred Seng, former shift commander at Merrifield, who died in the line of duty in 2003. 

 

After providing details about the operation and impact of Merrifield Fire and Rescue Station, Station Number 30, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board recognize the Merrifield Fire and Rescue Station for its 25 years of service to the community and the County and direct staff to invite representatives to appear before the Board at its February 7, 2005, meeting.  Chairman Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being out of the room.

 

24.                   CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION FOR QUEEN OF APOSTLES CATHOLIC PARISH (MASON DISTRICT)  (11:30 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross stated that the Most Reverend Paul S. Loverde of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington filed a special exception application for Queen of Apostles Catholic Parish.  The application proposes a minor building addition as well as site modifications, including additional handicapped parking spaces.  The application received a favorable recommendation from staff, the Mason District Land Use Committee, and the Planning Commission.  The application is scheduled for public hearing before the Board on February 28 and the applicant is anxious to commence construction.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to permit processing of the site plan and any architectural drawings associated with this pending application concurrently.  She noted that 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 Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Frey being out of the room.

 


25.                   COMMISSION ON ORGAN AND TISSUE DONATION AND TRANSPLANTATION  (11:31 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Gross announced that the Commission on Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation will celebrate its tenth anniversary on April 25.  She noted that Fairfax County was the first, if not the only, local jurisdiction in the country to have a Board-appointed commission devoted to organ and tissue donation and transplantation. 

 

To coincide with the national observance of Donate Life Month, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim April as “Donate Life Month” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite current and former members of the Commission on Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation to appear before the Board for recognition on April 25.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

26.                   FALLS CHURCH WATER (DRANESVILLE, MASON, AND PROVIDENCE DISTRICTS)  (11:35 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross reported that it has come to her attention that the City of Falls Church may consider recommending a rate differential for water customers in the County that is different than within the City of Falls Church.  She noted that thousands of customers in the County receive their water from the City of Falls Church, and a differential rate would create an inequity for County constituents who would face higher rates for the same service simply because they are County residents.

 

Accordingly, in an effort to protect County constituents from such an action, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to review this matter with Falls Church city officials and report his findings to the Board at the next meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Chairman Connolly noted that he presented a similar Board Matter several years ago [April 28, 2003], and discussion ensued.

 

Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the legislative staff to explore legislative options to preclude this kind of action, and report with information at the January 28 or February 4 Legislative Committee meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

Supervisor Gross noted that the Falls Church City Council requested recommendations from its staff by February 28.

 


Discussion continued briefly regarding City Council control over the rate.

 

Following input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Smyth asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide an update on the upgrades in Tysons Corner to the water system.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

27.                   REQUEST TO EXPAND ANNANDALE HIGH SCHOOL RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING DISTRICT (RPPD) (BRADDOCK DISTRICT)  (11:35 a.m.)

 

(A)                   Supervisor Bulova noted that the Board approved an advertisement of a public hearing to expand the Annandale Terrace RPPD (District 37) on the following roadways: Gaylord Drive from Mayfield Drive to the end, Weyburn Drive from Mayfield Drive to Medford Drive, and Weyburn Drive from Medford Drive to the end.  The community inadvertently requested these roadways be included in the Annandale Terrace RPPD.  Due to this misunderstanding, Supervisor Bulova asked the Board to cancel the previously approved advertisement.

 

Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct staff to advertise a public hearing to be held before the Board to expand the Annandale High School RPPD (District 14) to include the above-mentioned blocks.  The Department of Transportation has the appropriate completed petitions as well as the filing fees.  Student parking on residential streets around Annandale High School continues to be a serious problem, and expansion of the RPPD is needed. 

 

Following a brief discussion, Chairman Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

28.                   LINK (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (11:37 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that in 1986, as part of the Transportation Plan for Reston Town Center, LINK was created to encourage the Reston Town Center retail office and commercial business employees to use public transportation.  LINK, working with the Department of Transportation, has been a source for transportation schedules and information for the community.  Under the leadership and direction of Karl Ingebritsen, LINK’s first and only director, it has continued to play a pivotal role in the successful development of the Town Center.  She said that she has received notification that after nearly 20 years of service, Mr. Ingebritsen has resigned.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Ingebritsen to appear before the Board at its next meeting scheduled for February 7, 2005, to be recognized for his dedication and extensive service to the community and the County.

 

Following a query to Merni Fitzgerald, Director, Office of Public Affairs, regarding the number of recognitions scheduled for the next meeting, without objection, it was so ordered.

 

29.                   EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES (EMS) TRANSPORT BILLING BROCHURE  (11:38 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins called the Board’s attention to a brochure which she said all Board Members should have received in the mail regarding the EMS transport billing which is scheduled for implementation in April 2005.  She said that it is a very nice brochure, but has raised some concerns.  While it has an interest to all of the community, it has a great deal of interest to seniors in the community.  She noted that the font size used on the brochure is very small.

 

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, regarding the transport billing implementation date, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to determine whether input had been sought from members of the community, as she had previously requested.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the staff to consult with the Fire Chief and report with the following information:

 

·        What the process was for developing the brochure.

 

·        What can be done to improve the process.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to send the brochure to the Commission on Aging for review and/or recommendations before it is reprinted.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Supervisor DuBois asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff, in the future when sending out brochures similar to this one, to provide the Board with copies for review prior to distribution.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

31.                   SUPER BOWL  (11:43 a.m.)

Chairman Connolly announced that he would be attending the open house.

 


37.                   KINGSTOWNE FAITH 5K RUN/WALK (LEE DISTRICT)  (11:47 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite representatives from the Kingstowne Faith 5K Run/Walk Organizing Committee to a future Board meeting for formal recognition and to be presented with a resolution thanking them for their efforts.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Supervisor Kauffman noted that the October 16, 2004, Run/Walk was a huge success and over the past three years the race has been run, over $24,000 was donated to the Koinonia Foundation to help needy families.

 

38.                   RECOGNITION OF THE JOEY PIZZANO MEMORIAL FOUNDATION (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT)  (11:48 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois acknowledged a special couple, Bob and Paola Pizzano, who created the Joey Pizzano Memorial Foundation, after the tragic drowning of their son, Joey, a wonderful six-year-old child with a developmental disability.  Turning their grief into something productive, the Pizzano family created a memorial foundation in the name of their son Joey to help children with special needs, especially to foster an enjoyment of the water which Joey loved so much.

 

For the last four years, the Joey Pizzano Memorial Fund has completely funded the swim program operated by Department of Community and Recreation Service Therapeutic Recreation Services Division.  These funds pay for pool admissions, adaptive swim instructors, transportation, and lifeguard certification training for volunteers.  Over 500 school-aged children with disabilities from the County have benefited from this program. Their foundation has contributed over $30,000 to this cause.

 

In 2004, the County government was honored by the National Association of Counties for the Joey Pizzano Program with an Achievement Award and "Best of Category" in Parks and Recreation.  Mr. and Ms. Pizzano have ensured that Joey's legacy lives on through the many children who participate in this program. Under their leadership, they have enabled children and adults with disabilities the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to be safe in and around water.

 

Therefore, Supervisor DuBois asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. and Mrs. Pizzano to appear before the Board to be recognized for their dedication and commitment to ensuring that children and adults with disabilities who live in the County are given the opportunity to learn swimming safety skills.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

39.                   VOLUNTEERISM IN DRANESVILLE DISTRICT  (11:49 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois said that Ms. Shelia Wynne’s kindergarten class at Chesterbrook Elementary School, with the help of fifth-grade Book Buddies from Ms. Karen Hershey’s class, took ordinary, brightly colored polar fleece and felt and made 20 scarves by hand, that were distributed to the Center for Creative Nonviolence in Washington, DC, shortly before Christmas to be given to homeless children.  With full support from their parents who also donated books to the Center, which they selected from Ms. Wynne’s Wish List for the annual book fair, this was a hands-on learning experience and taught the children how they could make a difference in another child’s life.

 

Therefore, Supervisor DuBois asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the students from Ms. Wynne’s kindergarten class and their parents, as well as their Book Buddies from Ms. Hershey’s fifth-grade class to appear before the Board to receive its thanks for a job well done.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

·        Determine how much of the carryover savings are “one time dollars” that are being applied to ongoing expenditures.

 

·        Compare the dollar value of the one percent cost of living and the No Child Left Behind funding with the cost of reduced class size.

 

Without objection, the request, as amended, was so ordered.
