ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

 

PMH:pmh

 

24.                   DIRECT CARE WORKERS  (11:48 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly noted that direct care workers’ collaborate closely with other health care providers to provide quality care to all citizens.  The well-being and happiness of many patients depends greatly on direct care workers’ such as nurse’s aides, caregivers, personal care workers, and home care aides.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim June 9-16, 2005, as “Direct Care Workers Week” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite the appropriate representatives from the Long Term Coordinating Council to be recognized with the proclamation at the June 6, 2005, meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

25.                   MOSQUITO AWARENESS WEEK  (11:48 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that the Health Department works diligently each year to inform citizens of methods to prevent mosquito bites.  This campaign is recognized across the Commonwealth as a model preventative measure localities can take to help protect their citizens.  This year the County was also asked by the Virginia Department of Health to pilot a tick prevention awareness campaign.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim June 19-25, 2005, as “Mosquito Awareness Week” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite the appropriate representatives from the Health Department to be recognized with the proclamation at the June 20, 2005, Board meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

26.                   COUNTY GOVERNMENT TELEWORK PROGRAM INCREASES STEADILY; LEADERSHIP TEAM URGED TO ENCOURAGE PARTICIPATION  (11:49 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that in 2000, as Chairman of the Metropolitan Area Council of Governments, he initiated a regional goal, endorsed by the Board, to have 20 percent of the eligible workforce teleworking by 2005.  With 825 County employees now actively participating in the telework program, the County leads the region in this effort to take cars off the road, fight gridlock, and improve air quality.  That number represents over two thirds of the County's goal to have 20 percent of its eligible workforce teleworking by the end of 2005.

 

The County's telework program is growing steadily, with new teleworkers signing up all the time.  The County Executive is to be commended for his continued commitment to keeping the County at the cutting edge of this regional effort.  In his office's latest effort to boost the telework participation even further, earlier this month a program was started to encourage the County's top management to redouble their efforts toward the regional goal.  The head of every department in the County attended the "No Place Like Home" event held in the Government Center. The importance of encouragement from managers was discussed if employees are going to learn to work differently, utilizing technology to stay in communication while working from home or from telework centers.  Departments were honored with special awards in keeping with the theme:  The Yellow Brick Road Award (for the teleworker with the longest commute); the Good Witch Award (for the Department that has promoted telework the longest); the Dorothy Award (for the newest teleworker); and the Ruby Slippers Award (for the department with the most teleworkers).

 

One-thousand County employees telecommuting one day a week will save 1.8 million commuting miles, preventing 720,000 pounds of pollutants from entering the air we breathe.  Teleworking is not the only solution to the region's air quality and road congestion challenges, but along with mass transit and carpooling, it is a critical one.  In addition, teleworking plays a necessary role during emergencies.  It is an important part of any emergency preparedness effort.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to prepare certificates of commendation for Catherine A. Chianese, Assistant to the County Executive, and all the members of the telework team for their enthusiasm, creativity, and resolve to assure that the County continues to lead the region in the effort to achieve the critical telework goal.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

27.                   FORT BELVOIR  (11:50 a.m.)

 

Jointly with Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor Hyland, and Supervisor McConnell, Chairman Connolly said that on Friday, May 13, the Department of Defense issued its report on base closures and relocations.  As a result, Northern Virginia is going to sustain both the largest single loss of jobs with over 23,000 jobs cut from Arlington and Alexandria, and the single largest addition of net new jobs with the addition of 18,000 jobs in Fort Belvoir and the Engineering Proving Grounds (EPG).  This sudden infusion of new employees brings with it the challenge of how to incorporate these jobs and the people who fill them into an area where the major road network has, with the exception of paving and widening, remained largely unchanged since tobacco was rolled down what is today Richmond Highway.

 

Six years ago the Board requested a study of extending transit service from the Franconia-Springfield Metro Station to the EPG and southward to the Main Post of Fort Belvoir.  Similarly, the County and the Virginia Department of Transportation recently finished an exhaustive review of the future roadway improvement needs of Richmond Highway and concluded that a transit link was needed tying Fort Belvoir to the Huntington Station.  This influx of jobs will have a large and unanticipated impact not only on the transportation system, but across the infrastructure spectrum, affecting schools, air quality, and housing stock, to name but a few.  County staff resources must be brought to bear and a single point of contact must be chosen, to ensure that information is shared quickly and seamlessly between Fairfax and the US Army.  The "implementation plan" to be drafted by Fort Belvoir over the next 90 days must be a first cut, and community input and guidance must be sought, so that and long-term strategy can be crafted to ensure the lasting success for the Army, the current community, and the future of this area.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that:

 

·       A meeting of the Board's Fort Belvoir Committee be scheduled with dispatch to ensure that Board colleagues, staff, and the public have a chance to be fully briefed on the scope of the proposed changes.

 

·       The Board declare its firm conviction that when the federal government makes a decision that adds 18,000 jobs to the County, it has a special obligation to help in a substantial and significant way to offset these impacts.

 

·       The Board exhort its congressional delegation for assistance in the dedication of funds for transportation improvements in the Richmond Highway corridor and its environs, including but not limited to the extension of rail from Huntington to Fort Belvoir itself, the extension of rail from Franconia-Springfield to the EPG and from there to Fort Belvoir, enhanced bus services, and other sundry road improvements.

 

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion of the motion, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report with information regarding a commuter train to new facilities.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Supervisor Smyth asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review the possibility of using a study similar to the license plate study regarding the Vienna Metro to determine where the 18,000 people are currently living and where they are coming from.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

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

 

28.                   TYSONS COORDINATING COMMITTEE  (12:08 p.m.)

 

(BACs)            Jointly with Supervisor DuBois, Supervisor Hudgins, and Supervisor Smyth, Chairman Connolly said that Tysons Corner is the economic engine driving the County to and through the 21st Century, and the conditions established by this Comprehensive Plan update must continue to foster the economic vitality of the urban center.  The continued commercial success of Tysons plays a major role in providing enough revenue to allow the Board to keep providing tax relief to homeowners.  The residents of the County cannot afford an economic decline in Tysons Corner.  In addition, Tysons needs a better mix of residential and commercial development to mitigate traffic congestion.  Tysons must also remain a center for retail activity.

 

Mission: With this goal in mind, the mission of the Tysons Coordinating Committee is to update the 1994 Plan to:

 

·       Promote more mixed use.

 

·       Better facilitate transit-oriented development.

 

·       Enhance pedestrian connections throughout Tysons.

 

·       Increase the residential component of the density mix.

 

·       Improve the functionality of Tysons.

 

·       Provide for amenities and aesthetics in Tysons, such as public spaces, public art, parks, etcetera.

 

Scope:  The scope of the Council's charge is to:

 

·       Focus on transit nodes.

 

·       Folding the APR nominations into this process.

 

·       Ensure that transportation impacts are addressed.

 

·       Help define the future of Tysons.

 

Composition:  A diverse mix of stakeholders from the community, businesses, and major employers.  The Committee shall build on its existing membership of 13 by:

 

·       Adding one district representative from those not yet represented, if desired - Mason, Mount Vernon, Lee, Springfield, Braddock, and Sully.  These representatives may be anyone living in each of those districts, and are to be appointed by the District Supervisors; (6).  Inviting the Chamber of Commerce and TYTRAN each to nominate three representatives (employers, employees, small and minority business representatives, etcetera); (6).

 

·       Adding the Tysons neighborhoods on both sides of Route 123, and Westwood at Ashgrove, to each nominate one representative; (3)

 

·       Adding one representative each from Dranesville and Hunter Mill District neighborhoods or coalitions; (2).

 

·       The appointing of a chair by the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors.

 

Process:  The Tysons Coordinating Committee should employ informational and educational outreach methods such as:

 

·       Community focus groups, using professionals to conduct/facilitate to:

 

·       Share visions and ideas.

 

·       Move to a shared vision of what Tysons can be.

 

·       Collect community ideas, concerns, and issues.

 

·       Specific working groups as deemed necessary and useful (these working groups can add others from the community who will not serve on the Council itself).

 

·       Public outreach presentations to civic associations, community meetings, business and Chamber meetings, and those four meetings that may be authorized.

 

·       Community meetings.

 

Timeline:  The Committee should complete its work in the next 15 months.  The Committee, with assistance from County staff and the facilitators, should review an appropriate report and plan amendment(s) as necessary for Planning Commission and Board consideration.

 

Supervisor Smyth seconded the motion.

 

Supervisor Smyth noted that the expansion was requested by the existing committee because of the challenges the committee faces in doing public outreach to everyone who is interested in the future of Tysons.   The primary mission of the committee is still public outreach, gathering input from the public, and making the planning process as inclusive as possible.   A community vision as the basis for the Tysons planning study is desired.

 

Following discussion of the Committee, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the timeframe to complete the work be 12-15 months.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

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

 

29.                   ABSENCE OF SUPERVISOR HUDGINS (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (12:16 p.m.)

Supervisor Bulova announced that Robin Smith, who is a nurse at the County Adult Detention Center, has been named “Nurse of the Year” by the Washington Post.

 

In an article in the Sunday, May 8, 2005, section of Healthcare Jobs in the Post, Nurse Smith is described as “. . .hardworking, very knowledgeable, and dedicated to her work” in the very high-risk population of 1,500 inmates.  According to medical technician Munir Ahmad “It’s not uncommon to find Robin meeting with . . . inmates several times a week to help them become compliant with their prescribed treatment plan.”  Her boss Donna Mayne says she has witnessed the difference Nurse Smith has made in the lives of the individuals she serves with her “kind, assertive, and positive attitude.”

45.                   REZONING ON BLAND STREET (ROUTE 1155), EAST OF BRANDON AVENUE (ROUTE 371) (LEE DISTRICT)  (12:34 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman said that KSI Services, Incorporated, wanted to file a rezoning application in the Springfield Central Business District that required the Board’s authorization because there was a small piece of property that was a right-of-way owned by the Board.  The-right-of way in question was the “stub” portion of Bland Street (Route 1155), east of Brandon Avenue (Route 371) just before Bland Street becomes a private right-of-way, as part of a potential rezoning application which included the aforementioned portion of Bland Street and Tax Map Numbers 80-4-((1))-6F, 4A and 4.  The potential rezoning proposed to vacate the right-of-way “stub” to allow the applicant to slightly realign Bland Street as part of the rezoning.  The rezoning is located directly west of I-95, south of Commerce Street, east of Brandon Avenue, and north of Old Keene Mill Road.  The rezoning in question would be filed by Midtown Springfield, LLC, and developed by KSI Services, Incorporated.  The rezoning application sought to change the zoning district from the existing C-4, C-6, and C-8 Zoning Districts to a density not to exceed that allowed under the PRM Zoning District.

 

Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize the filing of a rezoning application on Bland Street (Route 1155), east of Brandon Avenue (Route 371), as generally identified in the pending rezoning application filed in the name of Midtown Springfield, LLC.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hudgins being out of the room.

 

Supervisor Kauffman noted that approval of the motion would in no way prejudice the substantive review of the pending rezoning in any way.

 

46.                   PUBLIC HEARING DATE FOR A REZONING CASE IN THE RICHMOND HIGHWAY COMMERCIAL REVITALIZATION DISTRICT (CRD) (LEE DISTRICT)  (12:36 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman said that Landmark Property Development had a rezoning case pending before the Planning Commission and Board located along Buckman Road and Richmond Highway in the Lee District.  The application was in the Richmond Highway CRD and had been embraced by local citizens and the Southeast Fairfax Development Corporation, the local revitalization agency.

 

The applicant currently has a Planning Commission public hearing date of June 16, 2005.  Consistent with CRD guidelines, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board direct staff to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on August 1, 2005.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hudgins being out of the room.

 

Supervisor Kauffman noted that the motion would in no way prejudice the review of the rezoning application by the Board and would not relieve the applicant from any ordinance requirements or adopted standards in any way.

 

47.                   HISTORIC DISTRICT SHUTTLE (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (12:37 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland announced that when the Department of Defense (DoD) released the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) List, it announced the migration of 18,000 people to the southeastern corner of the County which would undoubtedly have a significant impact on the infrastructure and services the Board has committed to provide its citizens.  As the Board works with its State and congressional delegations to mitigate the impact of DoD’s announcement, Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that the growth of Fort Belvoir would not be constrained to the BRAC’s recommendations.  He added that while the arrival of 18,000 people to the Mount Vernon District was substantial, the completion of the Army Museum at Fort Belvoir would bring more than five times that amount annually and that it would be wise to use the hotel occupancy tax, which the County receives partly from tourism, to provide a service that helped manage traffic congestion and afford tourists the opportunity to see some of the other historic sites the County has to offer.

 

Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct staff to review the feasibility and cost of using the Hotel Occupancy Tax to operate a shuttle from Mount Vernon Estate to Gunston Hall with stops at the Grist Mill, Woodlawn Plantation, the Army Museum, Pohick Church, the Lorton Arts Foundation, and the Cold War Museum.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion. After discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Hyland asked to amend the motion to direct staff to:

 

·       Evaluate the cost of a shuttle.

 

·       Review, for next year, financing options.

 

This was accepted.

 

Further discussion ensued concerning the County’s hosting of the Spring Board meeting of the Virginia Association of Counties this past weekend.  Chairman Connolly thanked Supervisor Hyland for the work he did to enable their colleagues from around the State to see Mount Vernon, which provided an excellent opportunity to enjoy a sense of the history in the County.  Chairman Connolly also thanked County staff for their efforts.

 

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to commend Angela Carson, a contract bus driver who participated in Saturday’s activities, for her driving skills and for being such a good sport in taking care of the participants.

 

The question was then called on the motion, as amended, and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hudgins being out of the room.

49.                   ADDITION OF PROPERTIES TO BE STUDIED FOR INCLUSION IN THE CENTREVILLE HISTORIC OVERLAY DISTRICT (SULLY DISTRICT)  (12:44 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Frey said that on August 2, 2004, the Board supported his motion to examine expansion of the Centerville Historic District which included researching properties proposed for inclusion in the Centreville Historic Overlay District.  On February 7, 2005, the Board supported his motion to include additional properties in the study.  The work group has had a considerable number of discussions regarding the boundaries and they have requested that remains of the forts be included in the study. 

 

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

 

·       Include the following properties in the research of the proposed boundaries: 54-4 ((10)) A, 54-4 ((14)) B, 54-4 ((2)) 2, 54-4 ((4)) 4, and 54-4 ((2)) 11

 

·       Add the following roads that connect to the forts, making it contiguous with the proposed expansion area:

 

·       Wharton Lane – beginning before the intersection with Pickwick Road and continuing up to parcel 54-4 ((10)) A

 

·       Pickwick Road – beginning at the intersection with Leland Road and continuing up to 54-4 ((14)) B.

 

Chairman Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hudgins being out of the room.

Discussion ensued with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, regarding the report, which he said should be coming to the Board in September.

 

52.                   FAIRFAX COUNTY PARKWAY DELAYS  (12:54 p.m.)

 

Supervisor McConnell said that recently she had a visit from Colonel Williams and members of his staff at her home, for a briefing on the Base Realignment and Closure Commission.  One of things discussed was the delay in the Fairfax County Parkway for possibly a year by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) because of two sections of land – one has contamination and one has possible unexposed ordinances.

 

Supervisor McConnell said that she spoke with Secretary of Transportation, Pierce Homer, and expressed her concern regarding the delays and said that Mr. Homer asked her to put her concerns in writing.  She said that she will be sending a letter today, with copies also being sent to Senator Warner and Governor Warner.  She encouraged her colleagues to do the same.

 

Supervisor McConnell said that she doesn’t understand why two small pieces in the road can not be written out in some legal document to say that these will be done later, and let VDOT start at both ends and meet there.  She said that it is her understanding that there is a policy or law that states that the Federal government cannot turn over contaminated land.  Supervisor McConnell said that the County should move on this issue to ensure that the Parkway is completed in an expeditious manner.

 

Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Attorney to research this matter.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

Discussion ensued with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, regarding the time constraints.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

 

56.                   MARTHA V. PENNINO POST OFFICE (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT) (3:21 p.m.)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting this issue was mentioned.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#29.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins announced that she attended the renaming ceremony of the Reston Post Office to the Martha V. Pennino Post Office.

 

57.                   HBL, INCORPORATED (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (3:21 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that HBL, Incorporated is processing a special exception amendment application to permit construction of an automatic drive-through on an existing dealership site in Tysons Corner.  This car wash will permit much improved recycling of water and will allow for less water usage than hand washing.

 

The County recently deferred the Planning Commission public hearing due to an error on the tax map.  This error has since been corrected, and the applicant is eager to move forward with the public hearings.  The applicant has worked closely with staff and the Hunter Mill Land Use Committee to respond to questions and issues raised throughout the review process.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct the Office of the County Executive to schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board regarding Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 82-C-063-4 on July 11, 2005.  This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances or adopted standards and does not prejudice the consideration of this application in any way.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Gross and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

58.                   GIRLS FINANCIAL LITERACY WEEK  (3:22 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that in a 2000 Gallup poll, women ranked financial issues as the most pressing personal concern in their lives ahead of family, health, time, stress, and equal rights.  The Foundation for Financial Literacy found that 84 percent of girls are concerned about staying out of debt.  Women on average still earn less than men (about 75 cents to every dollar a man makes).  Women are three times more likely than men to work in part-time jobs where pay is lower and pension benefits are less available.

 

In response to these concerns, the Girls' Advisory Board of Capital Financial Partners and the Department of Community and Recreation Services are co‑hosting a Financial Literacy Event for Teenaged Girls on Wednesday, June 29, 2005.

 

During a special half-day event, teenaged girls will experience the financial realities of adulthood by assuming the role of a 25 year-old woman.  Each participant will randomly receive an occupation and the associated monthly income and a family situation such as living alone, being a single parent, or married with three children.  She will then have several hours to make financial decisions about how to live her life.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board:

 

·       Proclaim June 27 - July 1, 2005, as “Girls Financial Literacy Week” in Fairfax County, and urges all residents to join in educating their children on financial management and fiscal responsibility.

 

·       Direct staff to invite them to appear before the Board on June 6, 2005.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

59.                   DISABILITY SERVICES BOARD (DSB) – YEAR OF TRANSPORTATION  (3:25 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that she has received complaints and became concerned about the limited options and reliability of the transportation modes available to the disability community.  She has also been contacted by DSB, to determine how DSB and the Board of Supervisors can work together to address these concerns.

 


As a first step, Supervisor Hudgins suggested that public meetings be held to determine specific areas in need of improvement and current barriers to service. She added that a team with representation from any or all of the following departments could be established, and tasked to hold public hearings in at least three areas of the County:

 

·       The DSB

 

·       FASTRAN

 

·       Area Agency on Aging

 

·       Department of Systems Management

 

·       Department of Family Services

 

·       Community Services Board

 

The meetings would be chaired by Department of Transportation.  With the information provided through these public hearings by members of the disabled community, the Board would begin to identify and address the specific problems and necessary improvements required to resolve the growing trend of underserving the disabled community in their transportation needs.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to develop an initial work plan by the July 2005 timeframe for conducting outreach to people with disabilities, including advertising and holding public forums, to address the limited options and reliability of the transportation modes available to the disability community; and produce a final report to the Board by October 1, 2005.  Supervisor Smyth seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Gross and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

60.                   GREATER RESTON ARTS CENTER, INCORPORATED (GRACE) (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (3:28 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that the Fiscal Year 2006 Adopted Budget included the approval of contribution to GRACE for the exhibition of Fairfax County art and artifacts in lieu of leasing space in the GRACE Arts and Cultural Center.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct the County Attorney to review a proposed Memorandum of Understanding concerning the arrangements with GRACE as to the exhibition of Fairfax County art and artifacts in the Reston Town Center Art and Cultural Center with recommendations for approval at the next meeting.  Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Gross and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room.

 

61.                   RECOGNITION FOR MS. CLARA JOHNSON (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (3:29 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that Clara Johnson is the building supervisor at Hunters Woods Elementary School for the Arts and Sciences and has been named Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) 2005 Support Employee of the Year.  She is a 29­year veteran of FCPS, and has been the building supervisor at Hunters Woods since 1979.  This recognition continues her career of successes because in 1982, Ms. Johnson was also recognized by FCPS as the Building Supervisor of the Year.

 

Her leadership is evident.  She is widely praised for her dedication to the school and students and for her positive, can-do attitude from handling facility needs to keeping the building secure - to making certain that things functioned seamlessly during the school's recent renovation - to her ability to keep a calm atmosphere in the cafeteria during lunchtime and for serving as a positive role model for students.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Ms. Clara Johnson to appear before the Board, on Monday, June 20, to be congratulated for being named Fairfax County Public School 2005 Support Employee of the Year.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

62.                   THE COALITION FOR HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES IN THE COMMUNITY FOR EVERYONE, INCORPORATED (CHOICE)  (3:30 p.m.)

 

Jointly with Chairman Connolly, Supervisor Hudgins announced that on Friday, May 20, CHOICE presented the Board with a CHOICE award for its commitment to affordable and accessible housing and publicly premiered Rolling production’s “CHOICE Home Modification Program Video.”

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board:

 

·       Extend its appreciation to CHOICE for its outstanding work in assisting persons with disabilities with home modifications.

 

·       Direct the Office of Public Affairs to broadcast the Rolling Production’s “CHOICE Home Modification Program Video” so that all in the County can see the wonderful work of CHOICE.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Hudgins announced that to further the on-going success of the community input at Channel 28, she will create a study group representing a wide variety of community organizations to establish a format for creating an operating structure for the governance of community cable broadcasting on Channel 28.  The group will be tasked with creating a mission statement, organizational by-laws and a memorandum of understanding to operate community cable within Reston.  She said that the group will include community group representatives, student representation, local show producers and professional County staff.  She said that it is her hope that a first draft of the work product will be available in January 2006, a final draft available in March 2006, and that the completed documents will come before the Board in June 2006.

 

Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff from the Office of the County Attorney and the Department of Cable Communications and Consumer Protection to assist and participate with the study group.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

                        Chairman Connolly submitted items for the record.
