                        Further discussion ensued regarding Section 109.1-2-3, Recycling from Non-Residential Properties.

                        The question was called on the motion to approve the Administrative Items, as amended, and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Smyth, and Chairman Connolly voting “AYE,” Supervisor DuBois being absent.

 

                        Supervisor Kauffman asked to amend Admin 3, handwritten page 38, Section 109.1-5-5(f) by replacing “two weeks” with “ten days.”  This was accepted.

 

                        The question was called on the motion to approve the Administrative Items, as further amended, and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Bulova, Supervisor Gross, Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor Hyland, Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Smyth, and Chairman Connolly voting “AYE,” Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor DuBois being absent.

 

                        Supervisor Bulova noted that Admin 6 was being considered because it is a cul-de-sac that only serves the Washington Post and Dominion Virginia Power, and it relieves the State from having to maintain that portion of the road and is a security and safety issue.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTER

 

21.                   SAFE STAFFING ON FIRE EQUIPMENT  (12:10 p.m.)

 

(BACs)            Chairman Connolly noted the omission of an agenda item from the County Executive’s items and he asked Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, to provide details.

 

                        Mr. Griffin indicated that in the process of preparing this agenda package, he became aware of a grant application item submitted by the Fire Chief for a federal program for safe staffing of fire vehicles in furtherance of a new standard that was adopted several years ago recommending that every piece of fire equipment have four personnel on the equipment.  The staff recommendation was for 52 additional firefighters to staff the ladder trucks on a 24/7 basis.  The program, as outlined by the Federal Government in terms of a grant, would support, over a five year period, 20 percent of the cost from the Federal Government, with the difference to be paid by the County.  It would not include overtime and other expenses that the County may incur.  For 52 positions over a five year period, the total cost would be $26 million, and the Federal share would be slightly more than $5 million.  Mr. Griffin expressed his belief that this was not a program that the County can afford at this time in light of the upcoming openings of two new fire stations which will need to be staffed.  There is also a Policy question as to whether the Board supports the standard of “safe staffing” as promulgated, and whether that is a requirement that must be met on all the vehicles.  Presently the County meets that standard on many vehicles, but not all.

 

                        Discussion ensued regarding the formulation of the Federal Government’s contribution at 20 percent, or approximately $6 million, with the County being asked to commit to over $20 million over the next five years. 

 

                        Further discussion ensued regarding the uncertainty of the program’s renewal by the Federal Government.

 

                        Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to convene the Board’s Fire Commission, with additional information from the Department of Management and Budget and the Fire and Rescue Department, to review this matter.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

                        Supervisor Frey asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the Board with a summary on how the change to the standard occurred and the County’s position on that, prior to the Fire Commission meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

                        Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide the Board with additional information on grant funding available for services by the Fire and Rescue Department and the Police Department.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTERS

 

NV:nv

 

26.                   RECOGNITION OF GLORY DAYS GRILL AND THE FAIRFAX COALITION OF POLICE FOR THEIR EFFORTS ON BEHALF OF COUNTY POLICE OFFICERS  (12:21 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly recognized the wonderful work of the restaurant Glory Days Grill and the Fairfax Coalition of Police.  Last week they held an event to raise money for the scholarship funds for the children of the tragically slain officers, Detective Vicky Armel and Master Police Officer Michael Garbarino. 

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the owners of the Glory Days Grill and Marshall Thielen and the Fairfax Coalition of Police, Local 5000, to appear before the Board to be thanked formally and receive a certificate for their contribution to this effort to raise funds for the families of Detective Armel and Officer Garbarino.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Connolly announced that a study released this spring ranked the Washington DC Metropolitan Area as the “Best City for Teleworking” in the country.  He noted that the County leads the region in this effort.

 

Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board reach out to the Department of the Army and the BRAC decision makers to encourage them to find ways to persuade their affected workers to telework rather than drive to Fort Belvoir before transportation infrastructure is in place.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

28.                   FAIRFAX COUNTY GOVERNMENT RECOGNIZED AS A BEST PLACE TO WORK IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (IT)  (12:24 p.m.)

 

Chairman Connolly announced that Computerworld magazine recently released its list of the top 100 “Best Places to Work in IT” in the nation, including four County businesses, and, Fairfax County Government ranked number 98.  He provided copies of the list to the Board.

 

Therefore, Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite David Molchany, Chief Information Officer (Deputy County Executive), Wanda Gibson, Director of the Department of Information Technology, and any other appropriate individuals to appear before the Board to be recognized for this achievement.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

29.                   CELEBRATE FAIRFAX COUNTY EXPO WINNERS  (12:25 p.m.)

 

                        Chairman Connolly noted the success of this year’s Celebrate Fairfax festival including record attendance on some days.  He moved that the Board direct staff to invite the winners of the 2006 Celebrate Fairfax! County Expo to appear before the Board to be recognized for their hard work and outstanding exhibits.  He distributed copies of the lists of awardees.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 


30.                   AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATORS (AEDs) LIFESAVING RECOGNITION  (12:25 p.m.)

 

                        Chairman Connolly stated that at this year’s Celebrate Fairfax festival, someone had a heart attack, but, because of the availability of the AEDs in the Government Center, staff was able to save that person’s life.  Chairman Connolly noted that 137 AEDs are installed in County facilities and 580 at School facilities for a total of 717 units in 359 locations throughout the County.

                       

                        Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Stephen Wells, the career and volunteer members of the Department of Fire and Rescue, and Police officers, all of whom acted quickly and effectively to save a life on June 10, to appear before the Board for recognition.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

31.                   FIRE PREVENTION WEEK  (12:26 p.m.)

 

                        Chairman Connolly asked unanimous consent that the Board proclaim the week of October 8-14, 2006, as “Fire Prevention Week” in Fairfax County and direct staff to invite the appropriate representatives from the Department of Fire and Rescue to appear before the Board to be presented with the proclamation at the September 25 Board meeting.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

32.                   NATIONAL THERAPEUTIC RECREATION WEEK  (12:27 p.m.)

                        Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

33.                   ANIMAL CONTROL AND PRIVATE PEST CONTROL SERVICES  (12:27 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Bulova said that on May 31 she hosted a town meeting on the subject of animal issues.  She expressed appreciation to Chairman Connolly for making some opening remarks that set a great tone for the meeting.  The program dealt with animal behavior, wild animals that share land with County residents, the role of the Department of Animal Control, operations of the Animal Shelter, and preparing a plan for pets during emergency situations.  Michael Lucas, Chief of Animal Control, and Andrew Sanderson, staff, Animal Services, did an outstanding job describing wild animal behavior and to what sorts of situations Animal Control will respond.  Shelter Director Karen Diviney brought some adorable adoption animals from the Animal Shelter, and they were a big hit.

 

Supervisor Bulova said that it was clear from discussion during the question and answer portion of the agenda that some people are frustrated and unclear about whom to call when Animal Control tells them they should contact a pest control company for some wild animal complaints.  Apparently not all pest control companies will respond to animal calls.

 

Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive and appropriate staff to review procedures for responding to wild animal complaints, to assess the sufficiency of the private sector to respond to these sorts of complaints, and to make sure staff is providing residents with accurate information about whom they can contact for help.

 

Supervisor Bulova stated for the record that she continues to believe the County needs more staffing in Animal Control.  She added that they do a great job, but they appear to be spread rather thin to be able to respond in a timely and efficient manner in a County of this size.

 

                    Without objection, the request was so ordered.

 

                    Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to publicize the contact information for the animal rescue league in regard to injured wild animals.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

                    A brief discussed ensued about wounded birds and an exhausted carrier pigeon.

 

34.                   FAIRFAX COUNTY HISTORY MUSEUM  (12:31 p.m.)

 

                        (NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board heard the report of the History Commission and also discussed the storage of artifacts and records.  See Clerk’s Summary Item #10.)

 

Supervisor Bulova said that as soon as the Braddock District A Look Back at Braddock Task Force finished presenting its new book, Braddock's True Gold, its members began focusing on the next steps and other history-related issues they wish to pursue.  One of these is advocacy for the establishment of a Fairfax County History Museum.

 

Supervisor Bulova stated her understanding that space in the former Lorton Prison site has been designated as space appropriate for a history museum.  She also noted that the Chairman had expressed interest in this subject and that staff may already be exploring options and locations that might be available for such a facility.  

 


Accordingly, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide information on work that may be underway to establish a Fairfax County History Museum, and, in particular, the possibility of such a museum being developed in the Laurel Hill area.  If County staff, or the Laurel Hill Arts Commission, or the Re-use Committee has already given thought to the potential scope and costs of such a facility, and the potential for a public-private partnership, she asked that this information be included as well.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Discussion ensued regarding the need for a museum, centralized and decentralized approaches, and the storage and display of the County’s innumerable artifacts.

 

35.                   DEVELOPER DEFAULTS  (12:37 p.m.)

 

                        Supervisor Bulova noted that The Washington Post published an article on Sunday, June 15 entitled “Developers’ Neglect is Costly for Fairfax – Amenities Unfinished in Dozens of Projects.”  She stated that the Board’s Audit Committee took the lead in focusing on this issue.

 

                        Noting that the Board’s individual offices are not alerted to impending developer defaults until there are problems in the community, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to provide or implement a formalized notification process for alerting the Board offices to potential developer defaults within their districts and providing periodic reports to the Board.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

                        Chairman Connolly stated that he had a pending memorandum requesting information from the County Attorney’s Office regarding new legislation effective July 1 that gives the County broadened powers in dealing with developer defaults.

 

                        Following further discussion regarding developer defaults, Chairman Connolly relinquished the Chair to Vice-Chairman Bulova and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to alert the Chairman’s Office in addition to the District Supervisor Offices, of impending defaults.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

                        Vice-Chairman Bulova returned the gavel to Chairman Connolly.

 

                        Following further discussion of this issue, regarding staffing and staff’s action on developer defaults, Supervisor Bulova clarified that her request included a status report by staff on what was being done.

 

                        Supervisor Smyth asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to track proffer commitments in addition to bonding issues.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

                        Further discussion ensued, with input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, regarding the rapid increase in construction costs and the need and new legislative authority for an escalator clause in the formula for setting developer bonds.

 

36.                   CITIZEN CORPS  (12:44 p.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Hudgins said that the new Fairfax County Community Services Center, recently opened in Tysons Corner Center, will provide community space as well as a police sub-station.  She asserted that it is also a good place to promote County services and programs.  A May 24 issue of The Connection noted that this will be a location for “Classroom in the Mall” classes, Red Cross blood drives, and Neighborhood Watch.  It was also noted that the Department of Fire and Rescue staff will offer AED/CPR and emergency preparedness training.  Chief Neuhard, noting the importance of community relationships following 9/11 was quoted as saying, “We can’t do it at all, we need the community to be involved.”

 

With the Police substation, and Fire and Rescue staff presence, Supervisor Hudgins said it would seem that a new Community Services Center would be an excellent place to establish a display for all of the County’s Citizen Corps and affiliated volunteer emergency preparedness and response programs, a place to learn about and sign up for these programs, and perhaps a good location for training classes.  More volunteers are needed for the programs.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to coordinate with the Citizen Corps Council and Citizen Corps program administrators to actively promote the County Citizens Corps and affiliate volunteer training programs at the new Community Services Center and to provide a report to the Board at its September 11, 2006, meeting on what volunteer training opportunities could be provided, not only at the new Center, but also in other community centers.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

37.                   OTO DEVELOPMENT, LLC EXPEDITED BOARD DATE REQUEST (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (12:46 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that OTO Development, LLC has been diligently pursuing the review and evaluation of Final Development Plan Amendment/ Proffered Condition Amendment Applications FDPA C-696-03/PCA C-696-06.  These applications propose to establish two upscale, full service hotels on property identified as Land Bay IV with Dulles Station, as an option to the approved office uses.  A public hearing is scheduled before the Planning Commission on July 13, 2006.  The applicant has requested concurrent processing of the site and building plans, and a hearing date to be scheduled before the Board to allow the application to proceed in a timely manner.

 


Therefore, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct the staff of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to accept for processing the site and building plans associated with Final Development Plan Amendment/ Proffered Condition Amendment Applications FDPA C-696-03/PCA C-696-06.  She further moved that the Board direct the scheduling of a public hearing before the Board for a date certain no later than July 31, 2006.

 

Supervisor Hudgins noted that this motion should not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board on the proposed applications, and does not relieve the Applicant from compliance with the provisions of all applicable ordinances, regulations or adopted standards.

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor DuBois being absent.

 

39.                   SOUTHGATE NEIGHBORHOOD COMMUNITY CENTER OPENING (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (12:49 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that in 1997, a community task force was established to formulate a plan to redevelop the Southgate Neighborhood Community Center in Reston.  The task force included representatives from the Reston Association (RA) Board of Directors, which owned the property at that time, the local Southgate and Stonegate communities, the Reston Community Center, the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), the Department of Community and Recreation Services (CRS), the Police Department, and area businesses.  On January 7, 2003, the Board and RA entered into a Memorandum of Agreement whereby the County agreed to build and operate a new Southgate Community Center.

 

Supervisor Hudgins explained that the Southgate Community Center is governed by the Southgate Community Center Advisory Council.  Since its first meeting on May 17, 2005, the Council has been working with the CRS, the Hunter Mill District Office, and the community on defining comprehensive community services and recreational, educational, and cultural activities intended to serve the residents of the Southgate and greater Reston community.

 

Supervisor Hudgins announced and extended an invitation to the Grand Opening of the Southgate Community Center, located at 12125 Pinecrest Road in Reston, on Saturday, July 8, 2006.  Activities are scheduled from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., with the formal ceremony scheduled for noon.  The event is open to the public, with activities available for children and adults.

 

Supervisor Hudgins asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to assist in notifying the public and the appropriate media with information on the grand opening of the Southgate Community Center.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

40.                   PLUG-IN PARTNERS NATIONAL CAMPAIGN  (12:51 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross said that at the Board's Environment Committee meeting on March 27, Jim Gorby, Director of the Department of Vehicle Services, recommended that the County consider joining the Plug-In Partners National Campaign.  Plug-In Partners is a national grassroots initiative to demonstrate to automakers that a market for flexible-fuel Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) exists throughout the country today.  Several questions were raised at the March meeting, and additional information was made available through the County Executive's office.

 

            Supervisor Gross reported that at the June 12 Environment Committee meeting, there was consensus by the Board Members in attendance that the County should join the campaign and, therefore, she asked unanimous consent that:

 

·        The County join the Plug-In Partners National Campaign to promote the development and commercialization of plug-in hybrids by major automobile manufacturers.  Membership in Plug-In Partners requires no commitment of funds, and wide latitude is permitted in the exact structure of each jurisdiction's local efforts. The campaign suggests that the County estimate, if possible, the number of plug-in hybrids that would be considered for purchase for the fleet if they were commercially available, performed as projected, and carried a reasonable cost.  The County also would commit to supporting local, State, and federal policies that will promote flexible-fuel plug-in hybrid vehicles.

 

·        The Board direct staff to report to the Environment Committee every six months, or sooner, as developments in this environmental arena occur.

 

            Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

41.                   “SAVE THE CRABS, THEN EAT EM”  (12:52 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross said that the Chesapeake Club is a program sponsored by the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay Program and is aimed at preventing pollution from entering the Chesapeake Bay.  Associated with the Chesapeake Club effort was the County storm drain marking program, which works to raise awareness among the public that storm drains connect directly to County streams, which connect to the Potomac River and, ultimately, to the Chesapeake Bay.  Trash, pet waste, motor oil, paint, and other materials dumped or washed into storm drains are major causes of pollution in local waterways.  The radio, television, and print advertising for these two campaigns has been well-received in the greater Washington area.

 

Thanks to the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District and the Chesapeake Club, Supervisor Gross distributed to each Board member a Chesapeake Club T-shirt and handouts about the campaigns.  She also played "the talking sewer" sound bite from radio advertisements.

 

42.                   NACO ACHIEVEMENT AWARD  (12:55 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross said that she has been advised that the County was selected recently to receive a NACo Achievement Award for its Environmental Agenda and Environmental Improvement Program (combined documents) as an innovative environmental program.  As single documents, neither met the criteria for the award but, together, they made a strong case which is what the Board intended when it adopted the 20-Year Environmental Vision and staff implementation.  She said that once again, the County has been singled out for leadership in the environmental arena, a source of pride.

 

43.                   SALUTE TO QUICK THINKING  (12:56 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross said that County employees provide continuous good service to the residents of the County, but one incident earlier this month reflects some very quick thinking on the part of two summer temporary employees of the Health Department that may have saved a child's life.

 

On June 12, Mr. Alex Johnson and Mr. Brian McCracken were setting out mosquito traps in Mason District when a child about 10 years of age came running out of a house and flagged them down, asking for assistance.  When they stopped the county vehicle to inquire, the child told them that she was being chased by an adult that was under a restraining order to stay away from her.  The child previously had been molested by this individual, and was obviously terrified.  Alex and Brian acted immediately, taking the child out of harm's way and calling 911 for police assistance.  The police arrived, Officer Steven W. Faett (#2418) took control of the situation, and Mr. Johnson and Mr. McCracken continued on their way to set the remainder of the mosquito traps on their route.

 

Because they are summer temporary employees, Mr. Johnson and Mr. McCracken are not eligible for regular County performance awards.  However, Supervisor Gross asserted that they deserve to be recognized and thanked for their quick thinking.  Accordingly, she asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Alex Johnson and Mr. Brian McCracken to a future Board meeting to receive certificates of appreciation.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

44.                   CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR PNC BANK, N.A. (MASON DISTRICT)  (12:58 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross said that PNC Bank, N.A. has filed and will be diligently pursuing processing of a special exception application currently identified as Temporary I.D. # SE 2006-0171.  This application proposes to establish a drive-in bank on property identified on County tax map records as 71-4 ((1)) 28A.  The application has been submitted to the County, and the applicant will be working to address any staff and community issues as part of the development review process.  The applicant has requested concurrent processing of the site and building plans, and a hearing date to be scheduled before the Board to allow the application to proceed in a timely manner.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct the staff:

 

·        Of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to accept for processing the site and building plans associated with special exception temporary ID # SE 2006-0171.  

 

·        To schedule a public hearing before the Board as soon as possible after a recommendation is issued by the Planning Commission.

 

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, or adopted standards.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor DuBois being absent.

 

45.                   THOMAS JEFFERSON HIGH SCHOOL FOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (TJHSST) BOYS’ VARSITY CREW 8 ROWING TEAM TO COMPETE AT HENLEY ROYAL REGATTA (MASON DISTRICT)  (12:59 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross said that the TJHSST Boys’ Varsity Crew 8 rowing team has been invited to compete in the Henley Royal Regatta in the United Kingdom for the Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup from June 28 through July 2, 2006.

 

TJHSST, established in 1985 as a Virginia Governor's School for Mathematics, Science and Technology, serves nearly 1,800 students from Fairfax and surrounding counties in Northern Virginia.  The team has consistently been among the top performing crew teams in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area.  This year, under Coach Jim Granger, the team has won the Virginia State Championship, the Stotesbury Cup Regatta, and the Scholastic Rowing Association National Championship.

 

At the Henley Regatta, the TJ Boys’ Varsity Crew 8 rowing team will represent over 40 high school rowing teams from the greater Washington DC Metropolitan area in competition against top high school crew teams from around the world.  High school crew teams from the United States have won the Princess Elizabeth Challenge Cup just three times in the last 15 years.  By winning the Stotesbury Cup, they are now the number one seed from the United States to compete at the Henley Royal Regatta. As far as can be determined, the TJ Crew team is the only public high school in the world that is competing this year at Henley!

 

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board:

 

·        Recognize and congratulate the efforts of the TJHSST boys’ varsity crew 8 rowing team and wish them the best of luck at the Henley Royal Regatta.

 

·        Direct staff to invite the young men, their coach, and their parents to a future Board meeting to be recognized for their achievements. 

 

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

 

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board work with the County Executive’s Office to send an expeditious email on behalf of the Board to the appropriate TJHSST representatives.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

46.                   SPRINGFIELD MALL (LEE DISTRICT)  (1:02 p.m.)

 

Jointly with Chairman Connolly and Supervisor McConnell, Supervisor Kauffman said that if Springfield has a town square, at various times it has been located somewhere in Springfield Mall. Like it or not, go there or not, the mall remains the largest (at 80 acres) and best positioned piece of real estate in that part of the County.  In 1973, it opened its doors as a big, bright focal point for a community that had already been booming for close to 20 years.

 

In the mid-1980s, the Mall was revamped and repositioned with new parking structures, stores and Macy's as a lead anchor.  However, the retail market was changing fast and the mall's ownership did not keep pace.  Beginning in the early 1990s, Target not withstanding, the mall entered into a period of steady decline, disinvestment and, at best, benign neglect.  The decline in stores and the overall image of the mall has been a constant source of concern.  The community is hungry for change, for a quality place that is a source of pride.  

 

Supervisor Kauffman reported that last October, Vornado (a nationally recognized development and property management firm) purchased the managing partnership interest in the mall.  They have already invested in everything from increased security to the repair of leaking roofs.

 

Earlier this morning, the Board was briefed on the just concluded Urban Land Institute (ULI) study of the greater Springfield area conducted by a select panel of experts from around the country.  Among the panel's conclusions is that the "commercial uses are aging and tired," but that the Springfield Mall site is ideally situated to be a "regional town center."  The study recommendations also advise the County to use the "Vornado development as a catalyst" for the rest of Springfield.  The process can begin today.

 

In light of these ULI recommendations, the broad-based community support for reinventing the Mall, and the new owners' commitment to make significant, long‑term investments, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board authorize an out-of-turn plan amendment (OTPA) for the area bounded by Franconia Road, Elder Avenue, the Franconia-Springfield Parkway, and I-95 in the Franconia‑Springfield Transit Station area. 

 

The intent of this amendment is to spark a true mixed use redevelopment of the Mall that could include additional retail square footage, residential uses, office uses, mid-rise hotel use within an overall intensity cap of 2.0 floor area ratio.  The possible density level is intended as an incentive to ensure serious, quality reinvestment balanced against the need to protect the significant, public sector transportation investments made in greater Springfield over the last decade.  The evaluation of this site should also ensure a high quality design with an emphasis on mitigating impacts to adjacent communities.

 

This motion does not prejudice the review of this OTPA or any subsequent rezoning application and does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provision of any applicable ordinance, regulation, or adopted standard.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion.

 

There was a brief discussion of the motion.

 

The question was called on the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor DuBois being absent.

 

47.                   LENORE LANE (LEE DISTRICT)  (1:09 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman said that Lenore Lane at Telegraph Road has been temporarily closed to make room for construction associated with the Woodrow Wilson project.  Neighboring residents welcome this as they have long been plagued with cut-through traffic.  The results of a cut-thru study by the Department of Transportation show Lenore Lane and Timothy Drive were used by 176 vehicles in one hour with 165 of those being cut-through vehicles.  He noted that following a community meeting residents of the neighborhood are requesting that Lenore Lane between Telegraph Road and James Drive be permanently closed.

 

        Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman moved that the Board:

 

·        Direct the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to coordinate with the Department of Transportation (DOT) to draft the necessary engineering drawings and text to process the vacation/abandonment request.

 

·        Direct the County Attorney's office to coordinate with DOT to draft the necessary legal documents to process the vacation/abandonment request.

 

·        Direct DOT to coordinate with the Virginia Department of Transportation on the permanent physical closure of the road and begin processing the vacation/abandonment upon receipt of the appropriate engineering documents and text and legal documents.

 

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

 

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

 


48.                   FAIRFAX-FALLS CHURCH COMMUNITY SERVICES BOARD (CSB)  (1:11 p.m.)

 

(BACs)            Supervisor Kauffman announced that resignation of Ben Pepper, Lee District Representative, CSB after years of dedicated service.

 

                        Supervisor Kauffman referred to his written Board Matter and outlined Mr. Pepper’s accomplishments and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. Pepper to appear before the Board at a future meeting to be recognized for his years of service.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

49.                   LEE-MOUNT VERNON SOCCER ASSOCIATION’S U-12 PATRIOTS WIN CHAMPIONSHIP  (1:11 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman said that the Lee-Mount Vernon Soccer Association’s U-12 Patriots, led by head coach Lula Bauer, won the Virginia Youth Soccer Association State Cup Tournament in Richmond.  As State champions, the Patriots will represent Virginia in the Region I tournament that will take place June 29 – July 4 in Virginia Beach and will include teams from Maine to Maryland.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Kauffman asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the Patriots, their parents and their coaches, Lula Bauer and Pat Kelly, to appear before the Board to receive recognition for this accomplishment.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

50.                   INTENT TO DEFER PUBLIC HEARINGS (LEE AND MOUNT VERNON DISTRICTS)  (1:12 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Kauffman announced his intent, later in the meeting at the appropriate time, to defer the public hearing on a proposal to abandon segments of Lockheed Boulevard.

 

(NOTE:  Later in the meeting, it was noted that this public hearing was cancelled.  See Clerk’s Summary Item #81.)

 

Supervisor Hyland announced his intent, later in the meeting at the appropriate time, to defer the public hearing on Special Exception Amendment Application SEA 2003-MV-028.

 

(NOTE: Later in the meeting, this public hearing was formally deferred.  See Clerk’s Summary Item #66.)

 


51.                   AAA SCHOOL SAFETY PATROL AWARDS PROGRAM  (1:13 p.m.)

 

Jointly with Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor Smyth said that the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education’s Outstanding AAA School Safety Patrol Awards Program recognizes the most outstanding school safety patrols in 18 jurisdictions around the Washington metropolitan area.  Selection criteria include leadership, dependability, academics, promptness, neatness and industriousness.   

 

Miss Ariel Lu, a sixth grader at Fairhill Elementary School and Miss Breanne Coughlin, a sixth grader at Clermont Elementary, were among 18 safety patrols from the 35,000 in the entire Washington metro area selected to receive the AAA Outstanding School Safety Patrol of the Year for the 2005 - 2006 school year.  On June 1, 2006, the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education, which is a non-profit organization funded by members of AAA Mid-Atlantic, Incorporated, provided each student with a plaque commemorating his or her exemplary accomplishments and $150 in US savings bonds during a special ceremony at the Hyatt Regency in Reston. 

 

Therefore, Supervisor Smyth asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Miss Ariel Lu, Miss Breanne Coughlin, representatives from their respective schools, the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education representatives as well as the Police Department representatives to appear before the Board and receive a Certificate of Recognition at its next meeting on July 10, 2006.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

52.                   PROVIDENCE PERSPECTIVE  (1:14 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Smyth invited residents to submit historical recollections in words and/or pictures and welcomed them to join the Providence Perspective Project Committee by contacting her office.

 

Furthermore, Supervisor Smyth asked unanimous consent that the Board:

 

·        Direct the Office of Public Affairs to publicize this exciting project.

 

·        Request the assistance of other County agencies for this project as will be needed.

 

Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

Supervisor Frey reminded the Board that the Voices of Chantilly was the first oral history project in the County.

 


53.                   REQUEST FOR PUBLIC HEARING FOR PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 2003-SU-040 (SULLY DISTRICT)  (1:16 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Frey said that in March 2004, the Board approved Rezoning Application RZ 2003-SU-040, Special Exception Application SE 2003-SU-025, and Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 78-S-063-4 to allow retail and fast food uses in the southwest quadrant of the intersection of Route 28 and Westfields Boulevard.  Subsequent to that approval, the owner has identified several potential tenants which would provide needed and desirable services to the community, but were not contained in the list of permitted uses.  Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 2003-SU-040 is a request to amend the allowable uses to permit all C-6 permitted uses, except those which will be expressly prohibited in the proffers.  The application proposes no new construction.

 

Supervisor Frey noted that the Planning Commission public hearing is scheduled for July 27 and the applicant has requested that the Board hold its public hearing prior to the August recess.

 

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

 

·        Schedule a public hearing to be held before the Board on July 31, 2006, regarding Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 2003-SU-040.

 

·        Concurrently process building plans and permits for the application.

 

The applicants understand that this motion will not prejudice the consideration of the applications in any way.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor DuBois being absent.

 

54.                   CIVIL WAR SOLDIERS (SULLY DISTRICT)  (1:17 p.m.)

56.                   REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR COX COMMUNICATIONS  (1:20 p.m.)

 

Supervisor McConnell announced that Gary McCullum of Cox Communications has been promoted and will be leaving the County. 

 

Therefore, Supervisor McConnell asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite Mr. McCullum to appear before the Board to be recognized for his outstanding service to the County.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

57.                   LORTON POLLING LOCATION NOTIFICATION (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (1:22 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland said that due to the recent population increase in the Lorton and Laurel Hill area of the County, the Electoral Board and the Board of Supervisors split the Lorton Precinct and created a new Laurel Hill Precinct.  He added that some constituents said that many of their neighbors were unaware of this change and did not examine their new voter registration cards closely.  On the day of the Primary, some voters, out of habit, went to the old polling place for the Lorton Center Precinct at Lorton Station Elementary instead of the new one at the Grace Bible Church.  While the turnout was light for the Primary two weeks ago, Election Day this coming November could prove more problematic as more people are apt to cast their ballots.

                       

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct the Office of the General Registrar to mail a notification to all registered voters in the Lorton (617), Laurel Hill (628), and Lorton Center (625) precincts about why this change occurred and where their new polling place is located.  Chairman Connolly seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor DuBois being absent.

(c)     Consultation with legal counsel and briefings by staff members or consultants pertaining to actual or probable litigation, and consultation with legal counsel regarding specific legal matters requiring the provision of legal advice by such counsel pursuant to Virginia Code § 2.2-3711(A) (7).
