NV:nv

 

23.                   COMMUNITY PARKING DISTRICTS (CPDs)  (11:20 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Chairman Connolly said that recently the Board conducted several public hearings to establish CPDs in neighborhoods throughout the County.  The Board heard from residents frustrated by boats, trailers, and recreational vehicles parking in their neighborhood.  The following were among residents’ complaints:

 

·       Parking of boats and trailers by nonresidents.

 

·       Expired tags and stickers on vehicles.

 

·       Out-of-state license plates.

 

·       Impediments to sight distance and traffic flow.

 

·       Other health and safety risks.

 

Chairman Connolly acknowledged that the establishment of a CPD eventually provides citizens with relief, but he said that it is a cumbersome, time consuming, and expensive process that affords no resolution until its final implementation.  He asserted that a coordinated approach to the enforcement of existing ordinances may provide communities with interim relief.  He said that an enforcement matrix for these vehicles may be of assistance to all involved.

 

Accordingly, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and moved that the Board direct the County Executive to convene a committee to research and prepare materials to guide enforcement.  He said that representatives should include, but not be limited to, staff from the following County agencies:

 

·       County Attorney’s Office.

 

·       Police Department.

 

·       Fire Marshal (Department of Fire and Rescue Services).

 

·       Department of Tax Administration.

 

·       Department of Transportation.

 

·       Health Department.

 

·       Zoning Enforcement Branch, Zoning Administration Division, Department of Planning and Zoning.

 

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

Supervisor Hyland asked to amend the motion to also direct staff to examine the existing CPD rules with a view toward streamlining them to address the aforementioned issues, and this was accepted.

 

Following a brief discussion about the rules and regulations for CPDs, the question was called on the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

Supervisor Hudgins said that in reviewing her Personnel Committee records, she noted that no report has been forwarded to the Board regarding the status of the Pay for Performance Appeals Process.  Accordingly, she asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the ongoing appeals data for the Board to continue the evaluation of Pay for Performance.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

25.                   COMMUNITY SOFTBALL GAME (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (11:23 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that as part of its community outreach efforts, Infinity Broadcasting Corporation, the owner of both WPGC and WHFS, sponsors events throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan region. These events aim to encourage local youth, governmental agencies, and service providers to collaborate with one another, fostering relationships based on respect and communication, while also discouraging violence.

 


Supervisor Hudgins said that as part of this summer's activities, on August 10 from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m., WPGC 95.5 and WHFS - El Zol Radio will be playing in a community softball game against officers from the Police Department, Reston District Station; the Hunter Mill District office; and local youth from the Reston Teen Center.  The game will begin at 6 p.m. at Baron Cameron Park in Reston.  As well, there will be an opportunity for a game of soccer at an adjacent field.  Staff from the Department of Systems Management for Human Services, Region 3 office, will be present to share information on available services.

 

Supervisor Hudgins stated that the multi-agency collaboration of the Police Department with the other agencies is indicative of how the many working parts of local government can work together, forming the appearance of a single unit doing good public outreach.

 

Supervisor Hudgins encouraged fans to come out to enjoy the game, meet radio personalities, and get to know some of the police officers in a friendly and fun-loving environment. 

 

Supervisor Hudgins distributed a flyer about the event and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to publicize it.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

26.                   REQUEST FOR CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR PARKRIDGE VI (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (11:25 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that Walker FLP Limited Partnership is processing a special exception application to allow for the option of hotel use on the site and some dimensional changes, including an increase in bui1ding height, to improve landscaping and other design goals.  Parkridge Center is a 46-acre office campus located in the southwest quadrant of the Route 267/Hunter Mill Corridor.  The proposed application addresses the development of Parkridge VI, the final phase of the master planned Parkridge Center office campus, and the application does not increase the allowed density on the site.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff in the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to review and process the site plan and minor site plans for the property identified as Tax Map 018-3 ((01)) 7B and 7G Pt. filed by Walker FLP Limited Partnership concurrent with the staff review of pending Special Exception Application SE 2005-HM-010.  She noted that 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.  Vice-Chairman Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Chairman Connolly being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 


27.                   RECOGNITION OF FLINT HILL SCHOOL (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (11:27 a.m.)

To acknowledge this milestone, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to prepare a resolution of congratulations for Flint Hill Elementary and to invite the appropriate representatives to appear before the Board on September 12, 2005, to receive it.  Vice-Chairman Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of eight, Chairman Connolly being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

28.                   RECOGNITION OF MS. LINDA WIMPEY  (11:27 a.m.)

32.                   TIMBERLANE FIRE – REQUEST FOR RECOGNITION AND EARLY START FOR SEPTEMBER 12, 2005, BOARD MEETING (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (11:30 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth said that on Sunday, July 3, 2005, the Fairfax County Fire Department responded to a four-alarm fire that was in progress at the Timber Lane Village Garden Condominiums located on Lee Highway.  Firefighters saw fire visible from the front and sides of the condominium on several floors and were able to bring this fire under control in about 50 minutes.  Furthermore, investigations yielded that the fire was an accident that stemmed from a natural-gas furnace located on the third floor.  Of the 100 residents living at Timberlane, dozens of residents were displaced and one resident was hospitalized due to serious burns.

 

Supervisor Smyth said that it was a terrible experience for everyone, but from that experience there were a number of examples of heroism, resilience, and individuals offering a helping hand, as follows:

 

·       Mr. Rajesh Thanju, who heard an explosion, called 911, and then proceeded to knock on his neighbors' doors, and finally, yelling from the courtyard for his neighbors to get out of their homes and to safety.

 

·       Mr. and Mrs. Islam, who had recently renovated their home that burned down.

 

·       Mr. Bob Anderson, who came to her office to use the telephone and left with a handful of "222-Need Help?" flyers to be distributed to others.

 

·       The Timber Lane Elementary School and the Parent/Teacher Association who set up temporary shelter at the school for families with children.

 

·       The Red Cross.

 

·       Department of Human Services, System Management.

 

·       Faith based community and leaders in the community who set up a discussion table together with some of the individuals already mentioned, who came up with further solutions.

 

·       Fire departments that responded from Fairfax County, Arlington County, City of Alexandria, and City of Fairfax.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Smyth asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the heroes and helpers from the Timberlane fire to appear before the Board at the September 12, 2005, meeting to be recognized.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Discussion ensued, with input from Merni Fitzgerald, Director, Office of Public Affairs, regarding the schedule.

 

Following further discussion, with input from Catherine A. Chianese, Assistant to the County Executive, it was noted that the Revitalization Committee meeting is scheduled for 8 a.m., September 12, 2005.

 

Chairman Connolly announced that the September 12, 2005, Board meeting will begin at 9 a.m.

 

33.                   REQUEST FOR EXPEDITED PROCESSING FOR PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 80-P-039-9 (HUNTER'S BRANCH) (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (11:32 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth said that Hunter's Branch, a PDC zoned development is partially governed by proffers approved pursuant to Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 80-P-039-5.  Certain secondary uses are specified in those proffers, and Hunter's Branch Partners LLC is requesting that the approved proffers be amended to permit colleges and universities as an approved secondary use.

 

Supervisor Smyth said the University of Southwestern Missouri is seeking to locate within Hunter's Branch, but is unable to do so due to limitations in the proffers.  The proposed satellite campus would have no more than 60 students, with 30 at any time, as well as two professors.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board direct the Department of Planning and Zoning to expedite Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 80-P-039-09 to the greatest extent possible after the scheduled Planning Commission public hearing.  This motion does not prejudice in any way the consideration of this PCA, nor does it relieve the applicant from compliance with the provisions of all the applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 

34.                   AUDIT COMMITTEE – ALTERNATE POSITION  (11:34 a.m.)

(APPT)           

(BACs)            Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and moved:

 

·        To create an alternate position for the Board's Audit Committee.

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

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

35.                   BURKE CENTRE VIRGINIA RAILWAY EXPRESS (VRE) STATION PARKING FACILITY (BRADDOCK DISTRICT)  (11:35 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Bulova said that from September 2003 to February 2004 her office hosted a Community Task Force regarding the design of a structured parking facility at the Burke Centre VRE Station.  What started out as contentious ended with the unanimous adoption of recommendations for a design, as well as improvements to non-motorized access to the station.  Community representatives from neighborhoods on both sides of the railroad participated in the process.

 

Supervisor Bulova said the parking facility is expected to be under construction by August of next year.  In the meantime, her office has continued to work with County staff and task force members to plan for better pedestrian access to the station.  A number of trails and trail improvements have been identified that would make it easier for VRE riders to walk or bike to the station, instead of driving their cars and parking at the site.  She said that having these improvements in place during construction of the station would be one of several measures to provide alternatives to VRE riders whose parking will be displaced during the 18 months the garage will be under construction.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board include a Consideration item in the amount of $696,000 in the Fiscal Year 2005 Carryover Review to fund priority pedestrian and intersection improvements in the vicinity of the Burke VRE Station.  The improvements include a series of trail connections and stream crossings between the VRE Station and the Burke Centre communities to the south, and pedestrian improvements at the Burke Centre Parkway/Roberts Parkway intersection.  This funding will be supplemented by an amount of $150,000 in existing capital project funds and $154,000 in revenue from the Virginia Department of Transportation.  The balance in General Funds that is need for the project is $696,000.  The second to this motion was inaudible.

 

Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Kauffman and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to, between now and Carryover, provide information regarding how similar projects are funded.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

                        Acting-Chairman Kauffman returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

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

36.                   INTENT TO DEFER BOARD DECISION INDEFINITELY ON REZONING APPLICATION RZ 2004-MV-030 (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:39 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland announced his intent, later in the meeting at the appropriate time, to defer Board decision on Rezoning Application RZ 2004-MV-030.

37.                   OUT-OF-TURN PLAN AMENDMENT S05-IV-LP3 (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:39 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said that on February 28, 2005, he moved to authorize Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment S05-IV-LP3 for tax map parcel 107-2 ((1)) 8, a four-acre property located on the northern edge of the Lorton Town Center.  The Plan amendment sought to expand residential use onto the property.  The nomination resulted from concerns over a by-right development of a storage facility adjacent to an existing residential development.  However, due to the limited availability of land on which the storage facility could relocate, the development of the storage facility has continued, and the attempts to acquire the land for residential development will cease.  The storage facility has worked with the neighboring community to enhance buffering and to minimize the visual impact of the development to ease the transition.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved to defer the public hearing on Out-of-Turn Plan Amendment S05-IV-LP3 indefinitely.  Supervisor Frey seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Hudgins being out of the room, Supervisor McConnell being absent.

 


38.                   FORT HUNT LITTLE LEAGUE WINS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:40 a.m.)

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the team to appear before the Board to be recognized for its incredible victory on August 1, 2005.  Without objection, it was so ordered.
