31.                   HAND AWARD  (2:37 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that during the recess he had traveled to Maryland to receive the regional HAND award presented to the County for its dedication of one penny of the real estate tax rate toward affordable housing.  HAND is a regional housing network of nonprofit developers.

 

32.                   YOUNG DRIVERS SUMMIT  (2:39 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly expressed his appreciation to Board Members for their participation in the Young Drivers Summit held on June 3 at the Government Center.  He named many of the participants and expressed appreciation to the Lieutenant Cynthia McAlister and her team in the Police Department their outstanding efforts in coordinating the summit as well.  He also thanked Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive; Catherine A. Chianese, Assistant to the County Executive; and other staff for their part in making the event a success.  He briefly recapped the event and urged the Board to work with its colleagues on the School Board to revamp drivers’ education.

 

Discussion ensued with input from Mr. Griffin regarding the summit.

 

33.                   INVOLUNTARY TOWING OF VEHICLES  (2:44 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that Senate Joint Resolution 330 established a joint subcommittee to study the potential State regulation of the vehicle towing and recovery industry.  The subcommittee is chaired by Senator Jay O’Brien who  asked the County to make a presentation at a meeting or public hearing to be held in the Government Center on June 21, 2005, at 7 p.m.  The focus of the study is towing without the consent of the owner or operator of a vehicle, known as “non-consensual” or involuntary towing.  

 

Chairman Connolly said that the issue of involuntary towing has been of concern to the Board as well, and information is being assembled for presentation to the subcommittee on the problems experienced by County consumers whose vehicles have been towed without their consent.   In addition, he recommended that the County convey the following positions to the subcommittee:

 

1.     Preserve the broad authority currently in State law permitting local regulation of involuntary vehicle towing.

 

2.     Do not diminish the current ability of local law enforcement officials to negotiate with towing companies the terms of contracts for police-requested towing services. 

 

3.     Support requiring towing companies to accept reasonable forms of payment for vehicle towing and storage charges for involuntary towing from private property.

 

4.  At the federal level, support House Resolution HR 1173 introduced by Congressman Jim Moran.  This legislation would restore to states and local governments the broad regulatory authority over involuntary towing which was partially preempted by a 1994 amendment to the Federal Aviation Administration Authority Act.  He noted that Congressman Moran also is pursuing related language on towing in the federal transportation reauthorization legislation. 

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board:

 

·       Authorize staff to prepare a presentation, as previously outlined, for the June 21 joint subcommittee meeting.

 

·       Endorse HR 1173 introduced by Congressman Moran to restore to states and local governments broad regulatory authority over involuntary towing.

 

·       Direct legislative staff to continue to monitor the progress of the State study as it unfolds. 

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova seconded the motion and relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Kauffman and asked to amend the motion to add the words “in addition to cash” following “reasonable forms of payment,” as outlined in number three and this was accepted.

 

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

 

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Hudgins being absent.

 

34.                   TESTIMONY BEFORE THE SENATE FINANCE TRANSPORTATION SUBCOMMITTEE  (2:47 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that on May 19, 2005, Senator John Chichester, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, announced the creation of the Senate’s Statewide Transportation Analysis and Recommendation Task Force (START).  It is a working group consisting of 10 members of the Senate and 15 citizens from across the Commonwealth that will look at transportation needs for the twenty-first century.  The chief function of START will be to develop a transportation action plan.  From this effort, legislative and budget proposals will be introduced in the 2006 Session.

 

Chairman Connolly said that Senator Charles Hawkins, chairman of the Senate Finance Transportation Subcommittee, will coordinate the effort.  On June 20, that subcommittee will meet at Northern Virginia Community College.  The focus of the meeting will be local land use decisions and transportation. 

 

Chairman Connolly announced his plans to attend the Senate Finance Transportation Subcommittee’s meeting scheduled for June 20 in Northern Virginia and moved that the Board authorize him to testify on behalf of the Board regarding the County’s experiences and techniques for managing the transportation challenges and land use planning and to identify ways that the State could be of assistance in that effort.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Kauffman asked to amend the motion to include comments regarding the reliance on real property taxes and the issue of the proffer system and the necessity for additional flexibility to match public facilities to the pace of development, and this was accepted. 

 

Chairman Connolly invited Board Members to share additional thoughts or comments on this subject by emailing him or Susan Mittereder, Legislative Liaison.

 

Supervisor Smyth asked to amend the motion to include the issue of adequate public facilities, and this was accepted.

 

The question was called on the motion, as amended, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Hudgins being absent.

 

35.                   JOINT LETTER ON POTENTIAL PRORATION OF STATE BASIC AID TO SCHOOL DIVISIONS  (2:50 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that he learned that State basic aid to school divisions may be prorated and this will have a negative impact on the County, the loss of approximately $750,000.

 

Chairman Connolly said that staff prepared for his signature a joint letter with the Chairman of the School Board to the State delegation expressing concern at this potential cut and encouraging the County’s representatives to work with the Governor to redress this underfunding of basic aid.  He distributed copies of the draft letter.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board endorse the joint County/School Board letter for immediate distribution to the State legislative delegation.  Vice-Chairman Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Hudgins being absent.

 

36.                   DOMESTIC VIOLENCE  (2:51 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly noted that the Board is concerned about domestic violence.  On June 15, 2005, the County will participate in the national domestic violence lobby day in Washington, DC sponsored by the National Network to End Domestic Violence.

 

Chairman Connolly said that the federal Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), originally enacted by Congress in 1994, provided millions of dollars in funding to support myriad services and programs, such as the national 24-hour domestic violence hotline, emergency shelters, and many others.  In 2000, Congress expanded and reauthorized VAWA for five additional years.  Because VAWA will expire on September 30, 2005, he asserted that the County needs to fight for the reauthorization and expansion of VAWA as a top priority for Congress this year.  

 

Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board add VAWA to its federal legislative agenda. 

 

Following discussion, Supervisor Gross asked to amend the request to also include a request for services for victims with English language deficiencies, and this was accepted.

 

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

 

37.                   REQUEST FOR DEFENSE BASE REALIGNMENT AND CLOSURE COMMISSION (BRAC) HEARING IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA  (2:53 p.m.)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed some implications from BRAC.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#20.)

 

Chairman Connolly noted that BRAC is holding its meeting for the region in Baltimore on July 8, and that Maryland might have an advantage regarding military jobs because of the location of the meeting.  Therefore, he moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a letter immediately, for his signature, on behalf of the Board, to join the Northern Virginia Regional Commission and other Northern Virginia jurisdictions in requesting BRAC to hold another regional hearing in Northern Virginia.  Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Hudgins being absent.

 

38.                   DANGEROUS DOG WEB PAGE  (2:55 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that on March 21, 2005, the Board approved the creation of a process whereby legally identified dangerous dogs can be identified by the community on the internet so residents can take appropriate measures for their safety.  He reported that the Animal Services Division of the Police Department has added a section to its website that lists dangerous dogs by owner’s name and address, the dog’s name and breed, and the type of bite that resulted in the listing.  He circulated a news release and the list of dangerous dogs.  He expressed appreciation to the Police Department for acting with alacrity.

 

A brief discussion ensued regarding the list.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

39.                   NO BOARD MATTERS FOR MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT SUPERVISOR GERALD W.  HYLAND  (2:56 p.m.)

 

                        Supervisor Hyland announced that he had no Board Matters to present today.

 

40.                   CAPPIES  (2:56 p.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois announced that she and Chairman Connolly had the pleasure of attending the Cappies, the high school theater awards show held at the Kennedy Center.  Chairman Connolly noted that the Board may wish to invite Judy Bowns and Bill Strauss, Cappies Co-Founders, to appear before the Board for recognition.

 

41.                   TECHNOLOGY AND THE ARTS  (2:57 p.m.)

 

Supervisor DuBois announced that she and Chairman Connolly attended the first annual Council for the Arts of Herndon Technology and the Arts competition.  She said that computer and digitally created artwork by local high school students were shown and awards were given.  She circulated some artwork to the Board.

 

A brief discussion ensued.

 

42.                   REAL ESTATE TAX ASSESSMENT REVIEW AND NOTIFICTION DEADLINE  (2:58 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth noted that she is aware that this year's real estate assessment period has placed an enormous burden on staff members of the Real Estate Division (RED) of the Department of Tax Administration (DTA) and she said that she appreciated all their hard work.  However, several Providence residents contacted her office during this 2005 real estate tax assessment period due to challenges they faced while conducting business with RED.  Two of the critical challenges they faced were that of receiving untimely and inappropriate responses which hindered their case preparation to the Board of Equalization (BOE).

 

Supervisor Smyth noted that according to a letter sent out by RED, property owners would have to submit their appeals to DTA by April 4, 2005, to complete its review by May 18, 2005.  The residents facing untimely notification claimed that the above statement does not mean that DTA would respond by May 18, 2005.  In fact, three residents received denial notifications only four to five days prior to the BOE Appeal deadline of June 1, 2005.

 

Supervisor Smyth added that the second critical challenge was that residents were not furnished with complete information on which RED based its decisions on appeals cases. This incomplete information also reflects the lack of coordinated research with other County agencies.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board direct the County Executive to examine the review and notification process utilized by RED and recommend changes that will enable residents to attain timely and complete information on their appeals cases.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of seven, Supervisor Hyland and Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Hudgins being absent.

 

43.                               AN OLD GLORY*OUS CELEBRATION FOR FLAG DAY  (3 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth said that the Tysons Corner Center is hosting an Old Glory*Ous Celebration for Flag Day on June 14, 2005, at the Tysons Corner Center.  This will be the first-of its-kind national partnership of multiple shopping center developers and the AMVETS and VFW organizations and will feature simultaneous raising of the flag and recognition ceremonies at 1 p.m. (est.) at more than 400 shopping centers nationwide.  She described all the various local celebratory events relating to Flag Day.

Therefore, Supervisor Smyth, jointly with Chairman Connolly, Supervisor DuBois, Supervisor Hudgins, and Supervisor Kauffman, asked unanimous consent that the Board show unanimous support for this event by proclaiming June 14, 2005, as "Tysons Corner Center Old Glory*Ous Flag Day Celebration Day" and direct staff to prepare a proclamation to be read at the event.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

44.                   NOTTAWAY NIGHTS (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (3:02 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth announced that Nottaway Nights held its first concert of the season on Thursday, June 2.

(BACs)            (NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board deferred some appointments to the Tysons Corner Transportation and Urban Design Study Coordinating Committee.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#14.)

 

                        Chairman Connolly noted that the Board deferred some appointments to the Tysons Corner Transportation and Urban Design Study Coordinating Committee because the Board was still awaiting word from various sources.  He asked Supervisor Smyth to contact the appropriate parties to make a determination.

 

                        Supervisor DuBois raised the issue of the addition of representatives from the Reston and Herndon Chambers of Commerce, but Chairman Connolly said that the Board would defer that action until June 20.

Edwards Amphitheater in Mason District Park.  The amphitheater was rebuilt following its destruction by fire on October 17, 2004.  Supervisor Gross thanked the Board and County staff for their strong support to her request to expedite all of the necessary permits that enabled the rebuilding of the amphitheater in seven and a half months.  She said it was an incredible team effort, and she invited everyone to visit this wonderful new facility.

AND

 

REQUEST FOR RECOGNITION OF CHEF CHRISTINE GLONINGER, RECIPIENT OF ANNANDALE HIGH SCHOOL’S FAMILY AND CONSUMER SCIENCES TEACHER OF THE YEAR AWARD (BRADDOCK DISTRICT)  (3:07 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Bulova said that a unique partnership between the restaurant and hospitality industry, the school system, the County, and the community has enabled the construction of Annandale High School’s exciting new state-of-the-art kitchen and restaurant known as The Bistro.  She said that this project, which began about four years ago, had literally grown from the ground up thanks to a unique collaboration which included the following:

 

·       The Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington

 

·       Cini-Little

 

·       Gill Group, Incorporated

 

·       Carson Malliton Associates

 

·       Stratford College

 

·       Guest Services, Incorporated

 

·       A. J. Dwoskin Associates

 

·       Landsdowne Resort

 

·       Optimum Hospitality Services

 

·       Clyde’s Restaurant Group

 

·       Virginia Delegate James Dillard

 

·       School Board Member Tessie Wilson

 

·       Staff from the Fairfax County Public School Administration

 

·       Staff and the Parent, Teacher, and Student Association of Annandale High School

 

Supervisor Bulova said that the students of the Culinary Arts Program, under the direction of Chef Christine Gloninger, represent the diversity of Annandale High School, both educationally and culturally.  They now have the benefit of the best equipment available to pursue careers in the hospitality industry, either directly after high school or after continuing on to college.  Chef Gloninger’s students have catered 20 events since the end of March 2005.  The new training facility was featured in the May 2005 issue of Restaurant Digest and will be published again this summer in a national sanitation magazine.  An overview of this state‑of-the-art kitchen and restaurant is being aired daily through June 15 on Channel 21, the Red Apple Program.

 

Recently Chef Gloninger, Chairman of the Department of Family and Consumer Science Program, was awarded the Fairfax County Family and Consumer Sciences Education Association Teacher of the Year Award for 2004‑2005.  Although the challenges Chef Gloninger faced during the renovation process were tremendous, she continued to teach her students and prepare them for their future professional endeavors.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the following individuals to appear before the Board to be thanked and recognized for their impressive achievements:

 

·       Chef Christine Gloninger

 

·       Restaurant Association Representative Frans Hagen

 

·       Acting Principal George Keim

 

·       Braddock District School Board member Tessie Wilson

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

50.                   PUBLIC HEARINGS WITHDRAWN (LEE DISTRICT)  (3:10 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman announced that the following Special Exception applications had been withdrawn:

 

·       SE 2003-LE-028

 

·       SE 2003-LE-029

 

·       SE 2003-LE-031

 

(NOTE:  Later in the meeting, the Board formally accepted these withdrawals.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#59.)


51.                   GANG ACTIVITY (LEE DISTRICT)  (3:11 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman said that in March of this year, his office received a written complaint about overcrowding, suspicious car activity, and other unusual activity at 6807 Lynbrook Drive.  He referred the complaint to the Franconia Police Station and the Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ), and they found nothing suspicious nor any violations.

 

Supervisor Kauffman referred to the disturbing story in last Friday’s Washington Post about MS-13 gang activity by one or more residents at 6807 Lynbrook Drive.  A police swat team was called out the day before to arrest a member of the household for malicious wounding – a machete attack on Augusta Drive on Sunday, May 29.  He raised the following concerns:

 

·       Signs of trouble that were missed by the police and the DPZ.

 

·       That this adds a new dimension to the overcrowding and multi‑family issue.

 

·       The possibility that these properties could be hiding gang members and gang activities under the County’s nose.

 

·       The possible risk to the inspectors and police who are sent to inspect the properties.

 

Supervisor Kauffman noted that there needs to be more direct communication between the police and inspections staff.  Inspectors should be trained to recognize red flags that point to potential gang concerns.  He added that County resources committed to Strengthening Neighborhoods, Building Communities must be reviewed to ensure that those resources are focused on the issues affecting neighborhoods.

 

Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to prepare language for the 2006 Legislative Program that would make brandishing a machete a violation in the same way that brandishing a firearm is now a violation. 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to write a letter to the State Crime Commission requesting that it:

 

·       Examine these issues including the use of machetes as an instrument of terror.

 

·       Recommend legislation on specific penalties to deter their use.

 

·       Work with the County law enforcement to determine the necessary tools.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

A brief discussion continued with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, regarding machetes.

 

52.                   FAIRFAX COUNTY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY (EDA) NAMED ONE OF TEN TOP ECONOMIC ORGANIZATIONS  (3:20 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Frey announced that Site Selection Magazine named the EDA as one of the top ten economic development organizations across North America for 2004.

 

Following discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, and Merni Fitzgerald, Director, Office of Public Affairs, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board recognize the EDA for this achievement during their joint meeting scheduled for June 20, 2005.  Without objection, it was so ordered. 

 

53.                   POWER OUTAGE  (3:21 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that although the building was experiencing a power outage, the Board meeting was still being cablecast and the public was able to hear the Board meeting.

 

54.                   GREATER RESTON ARTS CENTER, INCORPORATED (GRACE) (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (3:22 p.m.)

 

On behalf of Supervisor Hudgins, Chairman Connolly said that GRACE, a non‑profit, tax exempt, arts organization, has presented a proposed agreement to the County in which GRACE would exhibit County art and artifacts in an 800 square-foot space in the new Reston Arts and Cultural Center for 30 days each calendar year for the next 20 years.  In exchange for the services provided by GRACE in presenting this annual exhibit for the next 20 years, the County would make a one-time contribution to GRACE of $50,000.  In the alternative, in accordance with the proffers adopted in Rezoning Application RZ 85-C-088, Grace has offered to lease an 800 square-foot room to the County in the Art and Cultural Center for a permanent exhibition of County art and artifacts at a fair market rate, which would cost the County $36,000 per year, or $720,000 if it was for a 20 year period.  At a one-time cost of $50,000, the proposed agreement presents a significant cost savings for the County.

 

Therefore, on behalf of Supervisor Hudgins, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and moved that the Board reject the offer from Grace for an 800 square-foot space for $36,000 per year and direct the County Executive to sign the proposed agreement providing for an annual exhibit for 30 days a year of County art and artifacts for the next 20 years in exchange for a one-time $50,000 contribution from the County.  Supervisor DuBois seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor McConnell being out of the room, Supervisor Hudgins being absent.

 

55.                   NO BOARD MATTERS FOR SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT SUPERVISOR ELAINE McCONNELL  (3:24 p.m.)

 

On behalf of Supervisor McConnell, Chairman Connolly announced that she had no Board Matters to present today.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.
