ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

 

NV:nv

 

25.                   COLONEL WILLIAMS DAY  (11:15 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that this Board Matter was presently jointly with Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, and Supervisor McConnell.  He noted that Supervisor McConnell was not present at the meeting because she is recovering from a fall where she fractured her leg.  On behalf of the Board, he wished her well.

 

Chairman Connolly announced that Colonel Thomas W. (“T.W.”)Williams, who took command of Fort Belvoir on July 11, 2002, is being promoted and will be managing 28 installations in the Army’s Northeast Region.  Accordingly, on behalf of Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, and Supervisor McConnell, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and moved that the Board:

 

·        Proclaim June 14, 2005, as “Colonel Williams Day” in Fairfax County in conjunction with the US Army Birthday.

 

·        Direct staff to invite him to be recognized with the proclamation at the June 6, 2005, Board meeting. 

 

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

(NOTE:  Later in the meeting, the Board declared US Army Week.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#26.)

 


26.                   ARMY WEEK  (11:16 a.m.)

 

With reference to the previous Board Matter, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board proclaim June 6-13, 2005, as “US Army Week” in Fairfax County and invite the US Army Fife and Drum Corps to be recognized with the proclamation following its performance at the June 6, 2005, Board meeting.  Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor Kauffman jointly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

27.                   LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE AND FEDERAL CONCERNS  (11:17 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Chairman Connolly asserted his belief that the County needs to improve on its coordination of federal legislative needs and concerns.  He noted that annually he meets with all five members of the County’s Congressional delegation, but said that more should be done to prioritize County needs, especially non-transportation priorities.  The Board’s Legislative Committee has historically been the avenue through which the Board initiates requests for legislation in the General Assembly, as well as reviewing the effects, and following the processes of various proposed state legislation.  The Board does not currently have a similar, coordinated process for reviewing, requesting, and following pertinent federal legislation.

 

To better coordinate the County’s federal legislative needs and concerns, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board approve a new process to expand the Legislative Committee’s purview to include federal legislative issues.  As outlined in his written Board Matter on the subject, copies of which were distributed to the Board, the Legislative Committee staff should elicit recommendations from the various County agencies for requested federal legislation to be discussed at the first committee meeting focusing on federal legislation.  The Legislative Committee staff should also be prepared to receive federal legislation requests and questions from Board Members through memorandums and Board Matters, as is the current practice for State legislation.  The process will begin with Legislative Committee meetings in September.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

Discussion ensued, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, regarding the current process, the procedure for issues that need immediate attention, and the earmarking of funds.

 

The question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board discussed a response from Senator Warner regarding federal legislation.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#31.)

 


28.                   AGREEMENT PROTECTING THE W&OD TRAIL  (11:26 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly reminded the Board that it formed the W&OD Trail Citizens’ Task Force to facilitate an agreement with Dominion Virginia Power to mitigate some of the tree-clearing problems on the trail.  His written Board Matter, distributed to the Board, provided background information on the issue.

 

Chairman Connolly said that with the new agreement he, Supervisor Hudgins, and Supervisor Smyth had the opportunity to celebrate with the task force and the community a success story.  Accordingly, jointly with Supervisor Hudgins and Supervisor Smyth, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to invite members of the W&OD Trail Task Force and representatives of the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority and Dominion Virginia Power to appear before the Board to be recognized for their efforts in successfully negotiating this agreement to preserve the W&OD Trail.   Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor Smyth jointly seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of six, Supervisor DuBois, Supervisor Frey, and Supervisor Kauffman being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

29.                   WETLANDS MITIGATION  (11:27 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Chairman Connolly said at its April 26, 2004, meeting, the Board directed staff to review and recommend steps for implementing a tidal wetlands mitigation and compensation policy, and furthermore to transmit its findings to the Wetlands Board for consideration.  He distributed copies of the Tidal Wetlands Mitigation and Compensation Policy as adopted by the Wetlands Board on March 30, 2005, along with a transmittal memorandum from the Department of Planning and Zoning.

 

Accordingly, Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board refer the draft Policy to the next meeting of the Board’s Environmental Committee for consideration.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

30.                   RESPONSIBLE FATHERHOOD WEEK  (11:27 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said June 13–20, 2005, is Responsible Fatherhood Week with an important message to inculcate in the community that fathers are an important and essential influence in everyone’s lives and the lives of children. 

 

Accordingly, Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim June 13-20, 2005, as “Responsible Fatherhood Week” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite representatives from the Fairfax Fatherhood Collaborative; Opportunities, Alternatives, and Resources (“OAR”); and the Office of the Sheriff to receive the proclamation at the June 20, 2005, Board meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

32.                   ENGINEER PROVING GROUNDS AND THE COMPLETION OF THE FAIRFAX COUNTY PARKWAY  (11:28 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that he, Supervisor Hyland, and Supervisor Kauffman were stunned to learn that the Virginia Department of Transportation recently decided to wait until the Environmental Protection Agency has formally provided a certificate under the resource recovery act process before accepting the EPG land for the completion of the Fairfax County Parkway.  He noted that this requirement had not been articulated until now and that this will delay the goal for completion of the parkway by 2007.

 

Following discussion, Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to arrange an appropriate meeting to resolve this issue.  Following input from Anthony H. Griffin, without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

33.                   ESCROW AGREEMENT FOR THE FAIRLEE/METROWEST TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT (TDM) (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (11:32 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth reminded the Board that during its review of the Comprehensive Plan Amendment for the properties included in the Fairlee/Metro West development, one of the primary concerns regarding the development was its ability to achieve the significant peak hour trip reductions established in the Comprehensive Plan (47 percent for the residential portion of the development and 25 percent for the office during the peak hours).  To verify whether the site will be able to attain these reductions, the applicant agreed to pay for a study that would identify best practices in the area of TDM, measure and analyze the current level of trip making for nearby and comparable developments, and prepare a recommended TDM program for the Fairlee/Metro West site to achieve the reductions called for in the Comprehensive Plan.

 

Supervisor Smyth said that a scope of work for this study has been completed, and a consultant has been selected to perform the work.  While the applicant has agreed to pay for the study, project technical oversight and management for the study will be provided by the Department of Transportation (DOT) in coordination with a technical review committee that has been established.  Because it is extremely important for public confidence in the study that the consultant report to the County and not to the applicant, funding for the study is to be placed in an escrow account funded by the applicant, but managed by the County.  Payments will be made from the escrow account to the consultant only at the direction of the Director of DOT.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board authorize the County Executive to execute an escrow agreement on behalf of the Board that will govern payments to the consultant for the TDM study at such time as the County Attorney is satisfied that such agreement is acceptab1e as to content and form.  Supervisor DuBois seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

34.                   PINE SPRING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL’S FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (11:34 a.m.)

Supervisor Smyth noted that this past weekend she helped to celebrate Timber Lane Elementary School’s fiftieth anniversary and now it is time for the fiftieth anniversary celebration of Pine Spring Elementary School.  The school is located between Routes 50 and 29.  She noted that the school boasts richness in its student body diversity and has won many awards.

Accordingly, Supervisor Smyth asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim Saturday, June 8, 2005, as "Pine Spring Elementary School Day" in Fairfax County and direct staff to prepare the proclamation that will be read at the celebration events that day.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

35.                   LAND USE SEMINAR (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (11:34 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth reported that she held her first land use seminar meeting last week, and it was very successful.  She announced that the second seminar will be held the evening of Monday, May 16 at Fair Hill Elementary School.  The Comprehensive Plan, rezonings, special exceptions, and the 2232 public facilities process will be on the agenda.  She invited those interested to attend.

 

36.                   RECOGNITION OF THE GREATER RESTON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE INCUBATOR PROGRAM (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)   (11:35 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that in five short years the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce Incubator Program supported 32 entrepreneurs and celebrated the success of 21 graduates.  Job creation and increased regional prosperity are the program’s primary goals.  The firms, many of them women and minority-owned, received more than $7 million in investments, added more than 80 jobs to the regions, and occupy more than 23,000 square feet of office space.  All of this was accomplished primarily though volunteers.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce to appear before the Board on June 20 to be recognized and commended for the outstanding successes of the Incubator Program for over five years of entrepreneur support.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

A brief discussion ensued regarding the number of presentations scheduled for upcoming meetings, with input from Merni Fitzgerald, Director, Office of Public Affairs.

 

37.                   PUBLICITY FOR KIDS SERVE TOO PROGRAMS  (11:36 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that Kids Serve Too, a non-profit organization formed by military spouses, is eager to obtain support from the County to publicize its programs for the children of active duty reservists.  The group, with its non-profit organizational headquarters in Reston, supports two informational websites.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to widely publicize and disseminate information for the Kids Serve Too programs which were recognized in April by Congress’ establishment of the “Month of the Military Child.”  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

38.                   REQUEST FOR CONCURRENT PROCESSING (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (11:37 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that L. Farnum Johnson, Jr. and Jeffrey J. Fairfield, Managing Co-Trustees of the Ruth C. Launders Marital Trust; David I. Meiselman and Winifred C. Meiselman, Trustees; and the Meiselman Family LLC filed proffered condition amendment, rezoning/final development plan, and special exception applications affecting Tax Map 16-3((1))4, 4B, 4C, 5, 5A, and 39, all currently scheduled for a public hearing to be held before the Planning Commission on June 29, 2005.  The applicants requested concurrent processing of the stormwater management plans and zoning applications to expedite the construction process.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff in the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to review and process the stormwater management/infrastructure plans for the property identified as Tax Map 16-3((1))4, 4B, 4C, 5, 5A, and 39 concurrently with the staff’s review of pending Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 79-C-037-5, Rezoning/Final Development Plan Application RZ/FDP 2002-HM-043, Special Exception Application SE 02-HM-046 filed by L. Farnum Johnson, Jr. and Jeffrey J. Fairfield, Managing Co-Trustees of the Ruth C. Launders Marital Trust; David I. Meiselman and Winifred C. Meiselman, Trustees; and the Meiselman Family LLC.  She noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Smyth being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

39.                   LAKE ANNE REVITALIZATION FOCUSES ON VALUES (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (11:39 a.m.)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board took action regarding the Lake Anne Commercial Area Revitalization Study.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#19.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins noted that earlier in the morning when the Board approved funding for the Reston Community Reinvestment Corporation, it was moving into the second phase of the revitalization project.  She stated that during the first phase, four public hearings were conducted, and she provided details.  The next phase will engage the Lake Anne residents and other stakeholders in seven focus groups to shape the direction of future growth and development in the Village Center. 

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that the seven focus groups will be held May 17 through 23, with the larger public meeting scheduled for May 24.  A three-day charrette will follow in June. 

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to publicize the press release she circulated with her written Board Matters. 

 

Chairman Connolly clarified that this item should be publicized on Comcast in Reston.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

41.                   THE FOUNDATION CENTER’S COOPERATING COLLECTION WEBSITE  (11:41 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross said that she had recently attended a Statewide meeting of Virginia watershed roundtables at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia and learned of an exciting new opportunity that could be of great assistance to the County’s constituents and the non-profit community.  A website called the Cooperating Collections, administered by The Foundation Center, provides online access to more than 77,000 philanthropic organizations.  The information available includes annual reports, websites, funding statistics, and even how to apply for tax returns.  After speaking with Edwin S. (“Sam”) Clay, Director of the Libraries, she learned that the County’s libraries could subscribe to the service for a fairly small membership fee. 

 

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the County Executive to work with the Libraries to ensure that The Foundation Center’s Cooperating Collection website becomes available as soon as possible.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

42.                   STATEMENT OF SUPPORT FOR THE GUARD AND RESERVE  (11:43 a.m.)

Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to review, and if appropriate, support the pledge by signing the statement.  Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hudgins and Supervisor Smyth being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

44.                   NINETIETH ANNUAL MCLEAN DAY FESTIVAL (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT)  (11:47 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois announced that the McLean community is celebrating its ninetieth annual McLean Day Festival to be held on Saturday, May 21  at Lewinsville Park from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.  This annual day of fun for all ages includes carnival rides, games, craft booths, and exhibits.

 

Supervisor DuBois noted that the first McLean Day was held in 1915 at the Civic League Lot which was later donated to the Franklin Sherman Elementary School. For more information, call 703-790-0123.

 

Supervisor DuBois asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to help publicize the event.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

45.                   ABATEMENT OF AIRPLANE NOISE OVER THE MCLEAN/LANGLEY AREA (DRANESVILLE DISTRICT)  (11:48 a.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois said that on April 27, 2005, the McLean Citizens Association adopted a resolution regarding the abatement of airplane noise over the McLean/Langley area.  The resolution addressed concerns about aircraft that are not following noise abatement procedures north of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.  These procedures call for aircraft to follow a flight path directly over the Potomac River for a distance of ten miles upstream of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.  Specifically, the resolution endorsed the recommendations of the FAR Part 150 Noise Compatibility Program Update for the Airport and called for Congressman Wolf to request the Federal Aviation Administration to provide fast-track approval of a recommended noise abatement measure within this document that would set the stage for the implementation of more advanced navigational procedures at the Airport, thereby increasing the precision of flight tracks along the Potomac River corridor.

 

Supervisor DuBois pointed out that in October the Board endorsed comments supporting the Part 150 Update document.  The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) has since transmitted its recommended Part 150 Update to Federal Aviation Association (FAA) for approval.  MWAA cannot begin to implement the recommended noise abatement measures until receiving FAA's approval; at this time, it is anticipated that such approval will be forthcoming by the end of this year.  Expedited approval of the recommended noise abatement measure addressing improved navigational procedures would allow efforts to develop such procedures to begin sooner, and she circulated a draft letter to the FAA, for the Chairman's signature on behalf of the Board, that would support such an action.

 

Therefore, Supervisor DuBois moved that the Board authorize the transmittal of the letter from the Chairman to the FAA.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion regarding improved navigational procedures, the question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of six, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Hyland, and Supervisor Smyth being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

46.                   BOY SCOUT TROOP NUMBER 893 ANNUAL FLEA MARKET (SULLY DISTRICT)  (11:50 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Frey announced that Boy Scout Troop Number 893 is holding its annual Flea Market on May 14, 2005, at the Dulles Expo Center.  This annual fundraiser is a much anticipated event that the entire Centreville/Chantilly community looks forward to each year.

 

Supervisor Frey noted that in the past the Board has waived trash fees at the I-66 Transfer Station for clean-up after the event.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board waive all trash fees associated with the clean-up of the flea market.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

47.                   MS. TARA ADISESHAN WINS ESSAY CONTEST (SULLY DISTRICT)  (11:51 a.m.)

Hall, a veterinarian from Centreville served many years on the Animal Services Advisory Commission and the Animal Shelter Advisory Commission.  He noted that she died in 1999 and this past year the County opened at the shelter the first “dog runs” which was something that Dr. Hall supported for many years.

 

Supervisor Frey moved that the Board:

 

·        Name the “dog runs” in memory of Dr. Hall and her commitment to animals.

 

·        Use the proposed language on the plaque as distributed to the Board.

 

Chairman Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hudgins and Supervisor Smyth being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

49.                   RECOGNITION OF THE TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF CHRISTIAN RELIEF SERVICES CHARITIES (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:55 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said that 20 years ago, Eugene L. Krizek founded Christian Relief Services Charities, an international charitable organization dedicated to help those in need both in the United States and around the world.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that Christian Relief Services Charities Founder and President, Eugene Krizek, appear before the Board to be recognized for its twentieth anniversary on June 20, 2005.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

50.                   SOUTH COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL REQUEST FOR EXPEDITIOUS PROCESSING FOR SIGNAL LIGHT AND SIDEWALK ALONG SILVERBROOK ROAD (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:50 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said that the new South County High School will be opening for the first time on September 6, 2005.  The high school, located on Silverbrook Road at the northern intersection of Laurel Crest Drive in Lorton is a principal arterial roadway that is being upgraded to a four-lane divided road this summer and students from the adjacent Laurel Hill subdivision (and other area neighborhoods) will be required to cross Silverbrook Road on foot to reach the school.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the review process for the signal light and the sidewalks.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hudgins and Supervisor Smyth being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

51.                   CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION AMENDMENT APPLICATION SEA 2002-MV-028 – 8021 A EAST BOULEVARD DRIVE (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:56 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland referred to his written Board Matter outlining the need for a special exception amendment for Special Exception Application SE 2002‑MV‑028.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to:

 

·        Expeditiously process Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 2002-MV-028 to be filed by Scott A. and Phyllis P. Crabtree.  Concurrent hearings before the Planning Commission and Board shall be scheduled prior to the August recess, if possible.

 

·        Accept for expedited and concurrent processing plans, architectural drawings, and any other drawings as may be necessary for ongoing construction, in conjunction with Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 2002-MV-028.

 

Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hudgins and Supervisor Smyth being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

52.                   AMERICAN LEGION POST 176 CELEBRATES ITS FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY (LEE AND SPRINGFIELD DISTRICTS)  (11:58 a.m.)

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Jim Kampanos, commander of the American Legion Post 176 and other members of the Post to appear before the Board at a future meeting for formal recognition.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

53.                   LANDMARK PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT, LLC (LEE DISTRICT)  (11:59 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman said that Landmark Property Development, LLC, has filed a zoning application on the Rolling Hills subdivision.  This subdivision includes an internal public street, Rolling Hills Avenue.  Under the proposed site layout, Rolling Hills Avenue would be vacated/abandoned and new internal streets would be created to serve the proposed development.

 

Supervisor Kauffman noted that County requirements specify that applications on property owned by a party other than the applicant require the endorsement of the property owner before such an application can be heard.  Because the County owns the underlying portion of Rolling Hills Avenue, the applicant is requesting Board concurrence in the filing of the application.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board indicate its concurrence of the inclusion of Rolling Hills Avenue in Rezoning/Final Development Plan Applications RZ/FDP 2004-LE-021.  This motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board on the proposed application, and does not relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hudgins and Supervisor Smyth being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

54.                   SOUTH VAN DORN III (LEE DISTRICT)  (Noon)

 

Supervisor Kauffman announced that at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, April 26, the South Van Dorn III was finally opened to traffic, completing a project that began back in the mid 1970s.  This half mile, four-lane divided roadway runs from King Centre Drive/Greendale Village Drive to Telegraph Road and links the Telegraph Road area to the south with Kingstowne, Franconia Road, the Beltway, and the Van Dorn Metro station to the north.  Extending Van Dorn Street south of Franconia Road to Telegraph Road has been part of the County's Comprehensive Plan since 1974.  Building the road became a condition of the Kingstowne development plan in the mid 1980s and the Kingstowne developer proffered (committed to build) South Van Dorn Street.

 

Supervisor Kauffman distributed an article that he wrote for Lee District civic and homeowner association newsletters.  It details the longest half mile road in the Commonwealth and its myriad detours-from wetlands discovery to mitigation; passing by road reengineering, standing water, and the whimsical effects of Mother Nature on the best planned schedules of the best transportation engineers.

 

Supervisor Kauffman announced that on June 16 between 6:30 and 8 p.m. there will be a gathering at the Snyder Center in Kingstowne to recognize this event.

57.                   MACHETE LEGISLATION  (12:05 p.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Kauffman said that an incident occurred at Lee High School involving an individual displaying a machete as a form of intimidation.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board refer to the Legislative Committee the issue of amending the Code of Virginia, a section dealing with the use of a machete as an instrument of intimidation.  Without objection, it was so ordered.
