BOARD MATTERS

1. MOMENT OF SILENCE  (9:50 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly asked everyone to keep in thoughts Captain Greg Hedrick, Fire and Rescue Department, who is continuing his recovery from burn injuries he sustained while in the line of duty.  On behalf of the Board, Chairman Connolly extended well wishes to Mr. Hedrick.

 

Supervisor Smyth asked everyone to keep in thoughts the family of Carolyn Taylor, wife of Herbert Taylor, who died last week.  Supervisor Smyth said Mr. Taylor has done a great deal for the County, was one of the Lords Fairfax, and served on the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB).

 

Supervisor Hudgins asked everyone to keep in thoughts the family of Ms. Beverly Sharp, who died recently.  Ms. Sharp and her family were early Restonians and helped to develop the community and made many contributions, including her recent planning of Reston’s fortieth anniversary celebration.

 

Supervisor DuBois asked everyone to keep in thoughts the family of eight-year-old Cameron McClain, who died of leukemia.  He was the son of Haycock Elementary School principal Jay McClain.

 

Supervisor DuBois asked everyone to keep in thoughts the Cheatham, Price, and Buro families, and particularly Carol Buro, who is an employee with the Department of Family Services.  Over the holidays a terrible tragedy took place in McLean/Great Falls, which resulted in five deaths and forever changed the lives of these three families.  For the record, Supervisor DuBois commended the Police Department for its professional response to this case, and particularly its Victim’s Assistance Services staff for its ongoing work with these families.

 

Chairman Connolly noted that, as a result of this unfortunate tragedy, the homicide rate in the County increased.  He said that most of the homicides that occurred in the County involved either family-related members or acquaintances, and were not random killings.

 

(NOTE:  Later in the meeting, the Board discussed the County’s low crime.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#40.)

 

Supervisor Frey asked everyone to keep in thoughts the family of Laura Harsh, who died recently.  She was the daughter of Trudy Harsh, Sully District Representative to the CSB.

 

Chairman Connolly asked everyone to keep in thoughts the family of Ms. Agnes Morrison.  She was the mother of Patrick Morrison, former firefighter and member of the International Association of Firefighters.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

 

NV:nv

 

18.                   FAIRFAX KIDS CARE  (10:57 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly reminded the Board that, following Hurricane Katrina, “Fairfax Families Care” was formed to assist victims relocating to the County.  This organization, composed of businesses, non-profits, government agencies, and more, worked tirelessly to provide a warm welcome to the victims of this tragic disaster.  The organization addressed school enrollment, employment, and housing for persons displaced by that disaster.  As the community came together to raise funds for these individuals, many PTAs, school groups and other youths took the initiative to participate in the efforts.  In part because of these young people’s enthusiasm and work, Fairfax Families Care raised nearly $70,000 for the new members of the Fairfax Family.

 

Accordingly, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the youth that participated in the Fairfax Families Care efforts to appear before the Board to be recognized for their contributions to this effort.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

19.                   FAIRFAX COUNTY GOVERNMENT IS FIRST JURISDICTION TO MEET THE REGIONAL TELEWORK GOAL  (10:58 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that the County is the first of 19 jurisdictions in the Washington Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (COG) to reach the regional goal of 20 percent of the eligible workforce teleworking by 2005.  In 2000, as Chairman of COG, he initiated a regional goal, endorsed by the Board, to have 20 percent of the eligible workforce teleworking by 2005.  For Fairfax County, that goal meant having 1,000 employees teleworking by the end of 2005.  He said that as of December 30, 2005, the County has exceeded its goal.

 

Chairman Connolly expressed appreciation to the County Executive and to Catherine A. Chianese, Assistant to the County Executive, for their leadership.  His written Board Matter, distributed to all Board Members, also noted the efforts of department heads and a variety of messages and publicity. 

 

Chairman Connolly noted the environmental benefits by stating that 1,000 County employees’ telecommuting one day a week will save 1.8 million commuting miles, preventing 720,000 pounds of pollutants from entering the air everyone breathes, and taking cars off the roads.  He noted that telework is not only part of a solution to the region's air quality and road congestion challenges, but it is also a key element in continuity of operations.  With telework in place, when employees cannot get to their place of employment, operations can continue at some level.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly moved that:

 

·        The Board direct staff to invite the Fairfax Teleworks core team, Department of Tax Administration Director Kevin Greenlief, and other appropriate County leaders to be recognized at the January 23 Board meeting for their role in contributing to this historic achievement.

 

·        Board Members who represent the County on the COG Board and on the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board issue a challenge to area colleagues to get on board with teleworking.

 

Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

 

Discussion ensued regarding telework, County goals, State involvement, opportunities with Fort Belvoir under the Base Realignment and Closing (“BRAC”), local Chambers of Commerce and large employers, the importance of the involvement of utility companies that provide power and internet service, and statistics on teleworkers and potential teleworkers.

 

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

 

20.                   NATIONAL CHILD IMMUNIZATION MONTH  (11:07 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly said that each year the Health Department participates in National Child Immunization Month, a national program sponsored by the Center for Disease Control to emphasize the importance of immunizing children against 12 vaccine preventable diseases by the age of two. 

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim April 2006 as “Children’s Immunization Week” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite appropriate representatives from the Health Department and others to receive the proclamation at the March 23, 2006, Board meeting. Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

21.                   SAIGON BOULEVARD (MASON DISTRICT)  (11:08 a.m.)

 

Jointly with Supervisor Gross, Chairman Connolly stated that they have been working with representatives of the Vietnamese-American community who have requested that a portion Wilson Boulevard in the Falls Church area of the County be given the additional ceremonial designation of “Saigon Boulevard.”  This ceremonial designation would reflect the area’s role as a center of retail and cultural activity for the Vietnamese-American community in Northern Virginia.  On November 28, 2005, the City of Falls Church endorsed a resolution giving Wilson Boulevard this ceremonial name from Route 7 to Roosevelt Boulevard in front of the Eden Center.  Wilson Boulevard in this location is the boundary between the City and the County.   Ceremonial designation of this stretch of Wilson Boulevard by the County would allow both sides of the street to be similarly marked and signed.  This designation is not intended to change the name of this stretch of Wilson Boulevard, nor change any addresses along Wilson Boulevard.

 

Jointly with Supervisor Gross, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct staff to send a request to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) asking that agency to additionally designate the stretch of Wilson Boulevard between Route 7 and Roosevelt Boulevard as “Saigon Boulevard” and request that VDOT work with Fairfax County and the City of Falls Church to install signs with this designation.  Supervisor Gross seconded the motion.

 

Following a brief discussion, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, regarding any previous ceremonial designations, the question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

22.                   MEDICAL SERVICES FOR HOMELESS PERSONS  (11:11 a.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly stated that recently he visited the hypothermia shelter on Little River Turnpike, where he spent about five hours talking with members of the homeless community.  Subsequently he attended the holiday reception at the Williams Center that serves the homeless population.  He reminded the Board that the 2005 point-in-time survey of homeless persons identified 800 single individuals with no children.  He cited statistics about their medical characteristics which include the fact that 80 percent are either seriously mentally ill, chronic substance abusers, or have a dual diagnosis of mental illness and substance abuse.

 

Chairman Connolly noted that the County’s Health Department has public health nurses and nurse practitioners who provide services once per week at each of the emergency homeless shelters.  Those not in a shelter do not have access to medical care except emergency room services at the hospital.  Many of the medical conditions are readily treatable at a clinic, and many must manage medications.  Chairman Connolly cited the example of one homeless individual recently released from a hospital who carried plastic bags for the multiple medications that he had to take on a daily basis.  The man lives in the woods.

 

Chairman Connolly asserted that one of the missing pieces in the continuum of care is some kind of clinic that would be available strictly for the above-referenced population outside of homeless shelters.

 

Accordingly, Chairman Connolly moved that the Board direct the County Executive to work with the County’s non-profit and medical community to review options to provide access to health care for the homeless persons who are not served by the existing system and make recommendations to the Board as soon as possible.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

 

Discussion ensued regarding laws prohibiting involuntary intervention/commitment as well as the provision of dental care.

 

Supervisor Gross asked to amend the motion to include dental care, and this was accepted.

 

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

 

                        Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

23.                   NO BOARD MATTERS FOR LEE DISTRICT SUPERVISOR KAUFFMAN  (11:18 a.m.)

 

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

 

24.                   MOUNT VERNON COUNCIL RESOLUTION ON PROVIDING PUBLIC ACCESS TO RESTROOMS AT METRO STATIONS  (11:18 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said that the Mount Vernon Council of Citizens’ Associations passed a resolution on November 23, 2005, asking that the Board require the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) Board to make public restrooms more available and conspicuous to riders.  Furthermore, the resolution asked that County staff inspect and enforce all applicable rules and regulations regarding public restrooms.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board refer this resolution to the County Executive for recommendations.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Supervisor Kauffman, Chairman, WMATA Board, noted that he is working with WMATA staff about this issue.

 

25.                   JOINT BOARD MATTER WITH CHAIRMAN CONNOLLY ON A PRESS RELEASE FOR THE LAUREL HILL REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP) (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (11:19 a.m.)

 

With reference to his written Board Matter, presented jointly with Chairman Connolly regarding a Laurel Hill press release, Supervisor Hyland said that as part of the implementation of the recommendations of the Laurel Hill Adaptive Reuse Citizens Task Force regarding the reformatory and penitentiary areas, a Request for Information (RFI) was sent out and responses were received by 16 firms several months ago.  Responses to this RFI helped to craft a subsequent RFP to adaptively reuse the reformatory and penitentiary areas.  A cross agency team of County staff working in coordination with the Laurel Hill Project Advisory Citizens Oversight Committee has been moving forward to release the RFP.  It is anticipated that this will happen sometime this week.  As the responses to this RFP will inevitably shape the physical landscape of the Laurel Hill community, he asserted that those communities should be informed when the RFP is released.

           

Therefore, jointly with Chairman Connolly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to issue a press release on the Laurel Hill Request for Proposal when released by the Department of Planning and Zoning.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

26.                   JOINT BOARD MATTER WITH SUPERVISOR KAUFFMAN ON THE LAWRENCE V. FOWLER MEMORIAL AWARD FOR DISTINGUISHED SERVICE ON BOARDS, AUTHORITIES, AND COMMISSIONS (BACS)  (11:20 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Hyland said that the Mount Vernon District Representative to the Consumer Protection Commission (CPC) advised him that a long time servant of Fairfax County, Mr. Lawrence V. Fowler, had resigned his position on that same Commission after 41 years.  After doing some checking with the Clerk’s Office, Supervisor Hyland discovered that the County has the A. Heath Onthank Memorial Award for meritorious employees and the Barbara Varon Volunteer Award, but no award for honorable and dedicated service on Fairfax County’s many BACs.  He expressed his belief in the importance of Board recognition of honorable and dedicated service on BACs.

 

With reference to his written Board Matter on the subject, and jointly with Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the County Executive to work with the Clerk to the Board of Supervisors to help create the Lawrence V. Fowler Memorial Award for honorable service on a Fairfax County BAC.  Supervisor Kauffman seconded the motion.

 


Supervisor Kauffman noted that Mr. Fowler will be recognized on January 23, 2006, for his service on the CPC since its inception.

 

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

 

27.                   RECOGNITION FOR COUNTYWIDE NON-MOTORIZED TRANSPORTATION (TRAILS) COMMITTEE MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT REPRESENTATIVE KEVIN BRUGMAN  (11:22 a.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Brugman, a long time member of the Countywide Non-Motorized Transportation (“Trails”) Committee, to appear before the Board to be recognized for his service.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

28.                   MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT’S NINETEENTH ANNUAL TOWN MEETING PRESS RELEASE  (11:22 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland announced the Mount Vernon District’s Annual Town Meeting to take place on Saturday, February 4 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Mount Vernon High School’s Little Theatre, 8515 Old Mount Vernon Road.  Over the years it has grown to an event that draws more than 400 people from the Mount Vernon District.  He said that he will once again take everyone on a virtual bus tour of the district.  Invitations have been sent to Chairman Connolly, Supervisor Kauffman, County Executive Anthony H. Griffin, Chief Financial Officer Edward L. Long, Jr., as well as the Police and Fire Chiefs. 

 

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to issue the press release advertising Mount Vernon’s Nineteenth Annual Town Meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

29.                   SCHEDULING AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 78-C-098-2 (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (11:23 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins stated that Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 78-C-098-2, Tax Map 17-4((1)) 1, is pending for property formerly owned by the Prison Fellowship Ministries in Reston.  The application proposes residential development of the property in lieu of the currently approved commercial office uses and a small hotel use of the A. Smith Bowman or Arthur S. DeMoss House, which is on the County’s Inventory of Historic Sites.  This application will allow the preservation of this historic structure and the grounds.  The property owner has requested an expedited review of the application concurrent with the processing of the site plans.

 


Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff to:

 

·        Schedule the Board’s public hearing on Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 78-C-098-2 to be held on March 13, 2006.

 

·        Accept the concurrent processing of the site plan for this property.

 

Supervisor Hudgins noted that this motion shall not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board or staff on the proposed proffered condition amendment or site plan and 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, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

30.                   MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. DAY CELEBRATIONS  (11:25 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins circulated the program for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration at the Reston Community Center that will take place on January 14‑16, 2006.  The keynote speaker on January 16 will be Ezra M. Hill, an original Tuskegee Airman.

 

Supervisor Hudgins also noted that the County branch of the NAACP will celebrate the holiday at First Baptist Church in Vienna at 10 a.m. on January 16.

 

31.                   RECOGNITION OF OAKTON HIGH SCHOOL COUGARS’ STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS IN FOOTBALL AND BOYS’ CROSS COUNTRY (HUNTER MILL, PROVIDENCE, AND SULLY DISTRICTS)  (11:26 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Frey announced that the Oakton High School football team and boys’ cross country team earned State championships in their respective sports.  The football team defeated defending State champion Landstown to earn its first State football championship on December 10, 2005.  Equally impressive is the boys’ cross country team, which defeated the Jefferson Colonials in the State finals.

 

Accordingly, jointly with Supervisor Hudgins and Supervisor Smyth, Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the members of both the football and cross country teams of Oakton High School to appear before the Board for recognition of their incredible athletic accomplishments.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

32.                   PNC BANK (SULLY DISTRICT)  (11:27 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Frey announced that PNC Bank will be submitting a special exception application on property identified as Tax Map 54-4((1))53A.  The northeast boundary of the property is adjacent to a portion of the old Braddock Road right-of-way that is no longer necessary for public street purposes.  Braddock Road, north of Lee Highway, has been realigned so that this portion of the right-of-way is no longer necessary.  Therefore, PNC Bank has asked for the authorization of the Board to include a portion of Braddock Road in the special exception application.  Concurrent with the processing of the special exception application, the property owner will submit a request for the abandonment and/or vacation of that portion of Braddock Road to the Department of Transportation.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board:

 

·        Authorize the inclusion of that portion of Braddock Road in a special exception application to be filed by PNC Bank, N.A., on property identified as Tax Map 54-4((1))53A.

 

·        Authorize the County Executive to act as the agent for the Board in connection with such application, if necessary.

 

Supervisor Frey noted that 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 all applicable ordinances, regulations, and/or adopted standards.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board revisited this item.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#34.)

 

33.                   INOVA FAIR OAKS HOSPITAL (SULLY DISTRICT)  (11:28 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Frey stated that Inova Fair Oaks Hospital recently filed Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 2000-SU-032-2 and Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 84-C-076-8 for revisions to the approved development program for the hospital campus.  He met with the applicant representatives, and they are in the process of meeting with the community to resolve any issues that might arise.  The Planning Commission public hearing is scheduled for February 16, and the Board public hearing is scheduled for February 27.

 

Because there is a need to submit the site plans and building plans concurrently, Supervisor Frey moved that the Board direct staff to approve concurrent processing for the site plan and building plans while the related zoning applications are being processed.  The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion regarding the project, parking issues at the hospital campus, and the hospital orientation, the question was called on the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

34.                   PNC BANK AND RIGHT-OF-WAY (SULLY DISTRICT)  (11:31 a.m.)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board took action on this issue.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#32.)

 

Supervisor Bulova called the Board’s attention to the previous Board Matter regarding PNC Bank, and discussion ensued regarding the process for acquiring or disposing of the right-of-way.

35.                   KINGSLEY SOCCER TEAM (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (11:33 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth said that on November 12, 2005, the Kingsley Commons Soccer Club, in its first year, won the Little River Soccer Club recreational league divisional title.  The soccer program was inspired to promote teamwork and provide after school recreational opportunities for teenagers at the Kingsley Complex.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board direct staff to invite the Kingsley soccer team and the community to be recognized for their commitment and dedication to athletics.  Supervisor Gross seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being out of the room.

 

36.                   MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL FIELD HOCKEY TEAM (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (11:34 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth said that the Marshall High School field hockey team won the Northern Region Championship in 2005.  While not even qualifying for the regional tournament last season, this year the team was the Cinderella story of the falls sports season.  They shocked the region by going 19-6 and winning the Northern Region Championship on November 3. They did this in overtime, beating the three-time defending champion Woodson 2-1.

 

In recognition of the Marshall High School field hockey team for its victorious year by winning the Northern Region Championship, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board direct staff to invite the team and its coach to appear before the Board to formally commemorate their hard fought achievement.  Vice-Chairman Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being out of the room.

 

37.                   REQUEST FOR A CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION  (11:35 a.m.)

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova relinquished the Chair to Acting-Chairman Kauffman and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Carl Bouchard to appear before the Board for his many years of service.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

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

 

38.                   TRASH GUIDELINES  (11:35 a.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross said that last summer new recycling and trash guidelines were established for County residents in sanitary service districts.  One of the changes involved special pick-ups, which were limited to four per year.  This change has generated numerous complaints from constituents who, while not trying to abuse the system, have a need for more than four special pick-ups a year.  She noted the plight of new homeowners, whose predecessors used up all four special pick-ups during the move out, and now cannot access the service they pay for.

 

Although part of the change established a fee for so-called mega bulk collections, Supervisor Gross said that  Mason District has found that if the homeowner decides not to pay the mega bulk fee, apparently the huge pile can be left at the curb indefinitely because there is nothing to enforce removal.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to review the new policy and report with alternatives or suggestions to address these concerns.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

39.                   SCHOOL-AGE CHILD CARE (SACC) PROGRAM AT CHERRY RUN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (SPRINGFIELD DISTRICT)  (11:37 a.m.)

 

Supervisor McConnell said that her office was recently contacted by parents and PTA members from Cherry Run Elementary School regarding the need for a SACC program for the 2006-2007 school year.  The school's principal, Steven Gossin, has confirmed his support for the program and has committed the space needed for its implementation.

 

Based on the letters and phone calls that her office received in support of the program, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board consider for inclusion in the Fiscal Year 2007 Budget, funding for the establishment of a SACC program at Cherry Run Elementary School.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

40.                   MEDALLION  (11:39 a.m.)

 

(NOTE:  Earlier in the meeting, the Board mentioned the County’s homicide rate.  See Clerk’s Summary Item CL#1.)

 

Supervisor McConnell called the Board’s attention to medallions that were distributed around the dais commemorating 30 years of service for the Police Swat team.  She congratulated the team for doing a superb job.

 

Discussion ensued regarding the low crime rate of the County.


41.                   FLORIDA LEMON  (11:40 a.m.)

 

Supervisor McConnell showed the Board a Ponderosa Lemon from her hometown of Jacksonville, Florida.  It is the size of a grapefruit.

 

42.                   NEW DRANESVILLE DISTRICT STAFF MEMBER  (11:41 a.m.)
