BOARD MATTER

Chairman Connolly said that last week the County had one of the most difficult weeks in its history.  The Police Department, in its 66 year history, lost its first police officer, Detective Vicky Armel, in a violent assault. 

 

Supervisor Frey spoke about the tragic event at the Sully District Police Station and the outpouring of support and sympathy from everyone.  He thanked the Police Department, whose members never lost sight of the fact that their responsibility is to protect the community.  He said the officers were as concerned for the civilians as they were for their officers, ensuring that everyone in the building, such as his staff and the custodial crew, was in a secure location while the events unfolded outside.

 

Chairman Connolly announced that a trust fund has been set up for the Armel Family, in care of the Fairfax County Federal Credit Union, located at 4201 Members Way, Fairfax, Virginia, 22030.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to frequently publicize this information on Channel 16.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

Other Board Members also thanked the Police Department and expressed their concerns about the tragic event and the funeral procession for Detective Armel.

 

Supervisor Frey said that Officer Mike Garbarino, who was wounded in the assault, is still in the hospital in very serious condition.  He asked everyone to keep Officer Garbarino and his family in thoughts and prayers.

 

Supervisor Hyland said that he was in California attending the National Association of Counties (NACo) Board meeting when he received information regarding the funeral services for Detective Armel.  Several of the corporate members who are associate members of NACo learned of the tragedy and approached him and asked for information as to how they could contribute.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to prepare a letter to the corporate community of the County asking them to become involved in the fundraising efforts.

 

Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked to amend the request that the Board direct the County Executive and the Police Chief to head this effort.  Without objection, the request, as amended, was so ordered.

 

Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

(NOTE:  Later in the meeting, the Board discussed this tragedy further.  See Clerk’s Summary Items #3 and #30.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman asked everyone to keep in thoughts the family of Jong Won Lee, a Metro employee who was struck and killed by a train at the Dupont Circle Metrorail Station as he performed routine maintenance work.  Mr. Lee was a resident of Springfield who leaves behind three small children.  Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report with information regarding whether the County can provide any assistance.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

28.                   DEVELOPMENT OF DISBURSEMENT PROCEDURES FOR THE TREE PRESERVATION AND PLANTING FUND  (12:28 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth reminded the Board that it approved several recent Providence District rezoning applications that included contributions for tree planting to a new County Tree Preservation and Planting Fund.  The development of the Fairfax County Tree Preservation and Planting Fund necessitates that the Board develop a consistent Countywide protocol guiding the disbursement of collected proffered tree planting funds.

 

To that end, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board direct the staff of the Urban Forest Management and Land Development Services in the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, and the County Attorney’s Office to develop and report with a set of suggested general policies and standards guiding the County disbursement of collected proffered tree planting funds.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

30.                   ASSAULT WEAPONS  (12:29 p.m.)

 

                        (NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board reflected on tragic events at the Sully District Police Station.  See Clerk’s Summary Items #1 and #3.)

 

                        With reference to the tragic death that occurred last week, Supervisor Hudgins asserted that the County needs to deal with two issues: mental health treatment and its accessibility and United States House Resolution HR 654 entitled “50 Caliber Sniper Rifle Reduction Act” regarding the regulation of assault weapons.  Federal legislation banning such weapons expired.  She asserted that the availability of such weapons for non-military combat use is not needed in the community.

 

                        Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board forward to its Congressional Delegation the encouragement that its members continue to address this issue at a federal level to ban 50 caliber weapons. 

 

                        Following discussion regarding the penetration of the bullets into the cinderblock walls of the Sully District Police Station, Chairman Connolly restated the motion as directing staff to communicate with the Congressional Delegation the view of the Board, should it be the view of the Board, to ban assault weapons.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

                        Following discussion regarding consideration at the Board’s Legislative Committee and a previous Board position, Chairman Connolly noted that the motion essentially is to restore the previous federal ban on the purchase and possession of assault weapons that Congress allowed to expire.

 

                        Following discussion regarding previous staff analysis of federal legislation and the judicious wording of the proposed letter to the delegation, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide copies of the legislation to the Board.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

                        Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board defer action on this item until later in the meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, the Board took action on this issue.  See Clerk’s Summary Item #49.)

 

31.                   A LOOK BACK AT BRADDOCK HISTORY PROJECT DEBUT OF THE BOOK: BRADDOCK’S TRUE GOLD  (12:39 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Bulova said that on April 4, 2005, she announced that her office, working with a Community Task Force (which now numbers about 30 people), initiated a History Project called A Look Back at Braddock.

 

       The goal of the task force was to:

 

·    Gather written anecdotes, photographs, and historic materials.

 

·    Record and transcribe oral histories from long time residents of the Braddock District area.

 

·    Produce a layered map tracing the boundaries, landmarks, and features of Braddock District from early history to the present.

 

·    Conduct a Student History Paper Competition.

 

Supervisor Bulova reported that in March of last year, Jeanne Niccolls, Park Authority Collection Manager, provided task force members with training on how to conduct oral history interviews.  Throughout the summer and fall, the Braddock District conference room became a TV studio, as about 50 area residents filed through to share their memories of the Braddock District area.  A coat closet was converted into the repository for memorabilia.  In July of last year, cash prizes were awarded to the first, second, and third prize winners of the student essay contest.

 

Supervisor Bulova noted that this month, the writers, Marion Meany and Mary Lipsey, completed the final draft of a book - a collection of old stories and memories, full of beautiful color photos and graphics provided by Gil Donohue, and an inserted history map, authored by task force member John Browne.  The student essays are included in the book as well.  The book and maps are being printed and will be debuted at a VIP reception the evening of June 2, during Lake Accotink Park Heritage Days Celebration.  Board Members should have already received an invitation to this event.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite members of the A Look Back at Braddock Executive Committee to the June 5 Board meeting to be thanked and recognized for their incredible work, and so that they can present the book, Braddock’s True Gold, Memories of Twentieth Century Life in the Heart of Fairfax County, to the Board. 

 

Following discussion, with input from Merni Fitzgerald, Director, Office of Public Affairs, regarding the presentation schedule, without objection, it was so ordered.

 

32.                   REQUEST FOR PRESENTATION TO THE BOARD OF IN THE PATH OF HISTORY: VIRGINIA BETWEEN THE RAPPAHANNOCK AND THE POTOMAC: AN HISTORICAL PORTRAIT BY AUTHORS RUTH PRESTON ROSE AND ROSS NETHERTON (BRADDOCK DISTRICT)  (12:42 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Bulova said that preserving history is crucial to the safeguarding of events that have shaped the future of the region.  Through the completion of In the Path of History: Virginia Between the Rappahannock and the Potomac: An Historical Portrait, Nan Netherton, Ruth Preston Rose, and Ross Netherton have accomplished this feat.  In the Path of History is a sampler of the history that remains in the County and surrounding jurisdictions, from the northernmost part of Loudoun County to the southernmost part of Lancaster County.

 

Supervisor Bulova stated that it was the late Nan Netherton who first caught sight of the need for this book, and planned, researched, and coordinated its effort.  She did not live to see its completion, but she worked on this book until the time of her death.  In 2004 the Virginia General Assembly adopted a joint resolution in recognition of her outstanding career in history.

 

Supervisor Bulova said that Mr. Netherton and Mrs. Rose would like to formally present a copy of In the Path of History to each Member of the Board.  Therefore, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to coordinate this presentation at a future Board meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

Supervisor Hyland reminded the Board that as part of the Final Decree in Roubin Associates, LLC v. Board of Supervisors, In Chancery Number CH‑2004‑0192512, the Fairfax County Circuit Court ordered the Board to take legislative action to rezone property located at Tax Map Number 99-1 ((1)) parcel 5E to an industrial zoning district classification found by the Court to be reasonable.  Therefore, public hearings on the property owner’s rezoning application have been re-advertised to be held before the Planning Commission on June 15, 2006, and before the Board on July 10, 2006.  To ensure that the deadlines established in the Final Decree for rezoning this property are met, it is necessary for the Planning Commission to complete its work on this matter and report its recommendations to the Board in advance of the Board’s July 10, 2006, meeting.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board:

 

·        Refer this matter to the Planning Commission for its recommendations on this application, including all of the Board’s options for rezoning this property as specified by the Court in the Final Decree.

 

·        Direct the Planning Commission to report with its recommendations to the Board regarding this application and all the Board’s options for rezoning this property on or before June 30, 2006.

 

Supervisor Frey seconded the motion.

 

Chairman Connolly announced that he would not be supporting this motion, in protest to the action of the Circuit Court, because he believes the court has exceeded its authority.

 

The question was called on the motion and it CARRIED by a recorded vote of eight, Chairman Connolly voting “NAY,” Supervisor Kauffman being out of the room.

Supervisor Kauffman noted a quote from Congressman Davis that said “Congressman Moran and I will continue to fight for every dollar to fund the necessary infrastructure improvements to the Belvoir area.”

 

36.                   MOUNT PLEASANT BAPTIST CHURCH TO HOLD A “POLICE APPRECIATION DAY” IN MEMORY OF DETECTIVE VICKY ARMEL (MASON DISTRICT)  (12:48 p.m.)

 

(NOTE:  Earlier in the meeting, the Board discussed the tragic shooting of Detective Vicky Armel.  See  Clerk’s Summary Items #1 and #3.)

 

Supervisor Gross announced that Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, one of the oldest African-American churches in the County, is holding a “Police Appreciation Day” in memory of fallen Detective Vicky Armel, on Sunday, May 21, 2006.  She said that Pastor Harry J. Pilson of the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, who serves as a chaplain for the Police Department, has extended an invitation to the Mason District Police Station as well as to the
Chief of Police, and all County police officers to attend either of the two prayer services scheduled at 7:45 a.m. and 11 a.m. at the church located at 6477 Lincolnia Road, near its intersection with Columbia Pike in Mason District.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to publicize this event so that all members of the Police Department, their families, and the community will be aware of it.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

(NOTE:  Later in the meeting, the Board discussed tributes for Detective Armel.  See Clerk’s Summary Item #38.)

Supervisor Gross said that to expedite the application process for Rezoning/Final Development Plan Application RZ/FDP 2005-MA-014, the applicant has requested concurrent processing upon submittal of the site plan with the pending rezoning application.  This project has been in the works for a very long time and concurrent processing would be appropriate.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that Bannerwood Investments, LLC, be granted concurrent processing on Rezoning/Final Development Plan Application RZ/FDP 2005-MA-014.  This motion should in no way be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board on the said rezoning application or any subsequent development applications.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

 

38.                   VICKY ARMEL TRIBUTE  (12:49 p.m.)

Supervisor Gross said she received an email from a lieutenant of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, a Mason District resident, who said that Stonecroft Boulevard should be considered to be renamed Vickie Armel Boulevard.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that this issue be added to the list of suggestions.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Chairman Connolly said that Supervisor Frey and his colleagues at the Sully Station should be allotted plenty of time to discuss the suggestions.

The Seventh Annual Girl Power Conference is scheduled for June 24, 2006, at the Government Center.  This year’s title is “Girl Power: Where Girls Make Great Choices.”

Supervisor Hudgins circulated to Board Members pending legislation (United States House Resolution HR 654 entitled “50 Caliber Sniper Rifle Reduction Act”) that has been introduced by Congress Jim Moran and others.

 

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board go on record as supporting HR 654 in its banning of automatic weapons as described in the findings.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

Following discussion regarding weapons, Supervisor Gross suggested that the Board endorse the reinstitution of a ban on assault weapons that previously was the law of the land rather than a particular bill.

 

Supervisor Hudgins amended the motion that the Board:

 

·        Go on record opposing automatic weapons.

 

·        Ask Congress reconsider the expiration of the ban on automatic weapons.

 

·        Continue to monitor and direct staff and/or the Legislative Committee to respond to the proposed legislation.

 

·        Go on record and communicate to the Congressional Delegation the Board’s concern that automatic weapons, as used in the incident at the Sully District Police Station, are wholly unacceptable in protecting citizens, most specifically the public safety individuals that have gone on record equally opposed to automatic weapons.

 

Chairman Connolly restated the motion that the Board:

 

·        Reaffirm its support for the reinstatement of the assault weapons ban that had been part of federal law but was allowed to expire.

 

·        Refer HR 654 to the Legislative Committee and staff for further review, recommendations, and analysis.

 

This was accepted.
