ADMIN 23 – AUTHORIZATION TO ADVERTISE A PUBLIC HEARING TO AMEND THE CURRENT APPROPRIATION LEVEL IN THE FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2007 REVISED BUDGET PLAN (“CARRYOVER”)

 

(A)                   (NOTE:  Earlier in the meeting, the Board took additional action regarding this item.  See pages 6 and 7.)

 

                        Authorized the advertisement of a public hearing to be held before the Board on September 11, 2006, at 10 a.m. to consider amending the current appropriation level in the FY 2007 Revised Budget Plan.

 


ADDITIONAL BOARD MATTER

 

11.                   PROPOSED FISCAL YEAR (FY) 2008 BUDGET DEVELOPMENT GUIDELINES  (11:22 a.m.)

 

                        Supervisor Bulova said that information provided by the County Executive on the FY 2008 revenue and economic outlook was the framework for the County-School discussion on the budget that was held earlier this month.  She said that it appears that growth in County revenues would be moderate and significantly less than that experienced in the last several years, increases in County and School spending would be limited in FY 2008.

 

                        Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved:

 

·          That the Board direct that increases in County spending, excluding School Operating, County and School Debt Service, and Metro and New Facilities, be held to no more than 3 percent over the FY 2007 Adopted Budget Plan.

 

·          That the School Board and the Superintendent of Schools be provided with a target for limiting an increase to the FY 2008 County’s transfer to the School Operating Fund of no more than 3.5 percent over the FY 2007 Adopted Budget Plan plus an additional $8 million to fund the second phase of the School’s Initiatives for Excellence (bringing the total increase to 4.03 percent).  The motion assumes that the School Board and the Board of Supervisors continue to work together to identify and implement strategies to achieve and maintain excellent quality for County and School services.  The School Board has also indicated, and the Board of Supervisors would support, that the Schools would potentially reprioritize existing resources to meet the phase-in of all-day kindergarten.

 

·          That the Board direct that balances at the FY 2006 Carryover Review and during FY 2007 be held in reserve to fund expenses in FY 2008 ensuring that non-recurring funding is dedicated to non-recurring expenditures.

 

Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion.

 

Discussion ensued concerning the second bulleted item.  Supervisor Kauffman asked to amend the motion to change target to cap.  Following further discussion, the input from Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, Supervisor Bulova moved to amend her motion as follows:

 

·          Change target to targeted cap.

 

                        This was accepted.

 

                        Following further discussion, the question was called on the motion, as amended, and it carried by unanimous vote.

50.                   HUNTINGTONFLOODING  (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (12:24 p.m.)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the Board recognized staff and volunteers who provided flood assistance.  See Clerk’s Summary Item #2.)

 

Supervisor Hyland reported that on Wednesday, July 5, he walked along Cameron Run next to the flooded Huntington community with staff from the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) and saw where eight feet of water came crashing over the banks, inundating the homes of 158 residents in Arlington Terrace and Fenwick Drive.  He inquired of staff why there was no wall running along Cameron Run to keep out the water, and they concurred that it might be a good idea.

 

Supervisor Hyland said that two days later, ten minutes before conducting the fifth Town Hall meeting in Huntington regarding the flooding, he was briefed by staff as to the scope of the study to be requested of the Corps of Engineers.  He was advised that staff had found a storm drainage study completed in 1982, at the Board’s request, by Camp, Dresser and McKee, Incorporated which provided a comprehensive report recommending a solution to flooding in the Huntington community which he asserted could have prevented this disaster.  He distributed to the Board a number of previous related studies.

 

Supervisor Hyland said that in addition to the conclusions reached in these earlier studies that dredging, levees, floodwalls, or a combination thereof, could protect this community against a 100 year storm, the tremendous change and development in the Cameron Run Watershed since 1970 must be acknowledged.  This watershed, stretching from the Potomac River at the George Washington Memorial Parkway, reaches almost to Tysons Corner, draining almost 42 square miles and takes in the massive development in the Eisenhower Valley of the City of Alexandria.

 

                  Supervisor Hyland asserted that Capital Beltway development, interchanges at the mixing bowl, Telegraph Road, Richmond Highway, the replacement of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, development on either side of the Beltway, development of the Eisenhower Valley, and storm drainage improvements to Cameron Run to prevent flooding in the City of Alexandria have cumulatively and dramatically changed the amount and intensity of water flooding through Cameron Run next to the Huntington Community and nothing has been done to protect these residents.  He added that in the 1960s, Cameron Run was a deep water body, where one could swim and fish, but today it is flat and shallow because of silting.

 

Supervisor Hyland noted that the citizens in Huntington are not wealthy people.  Most are low income families who have no insurance because many of the properties are outside of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”) designated flood zone.  He asserted that it is an area of affordable housing which the County cannot afford to lose and must preserve.  He further asserted that this flooding could have been prevented and that future flooding must be prevented.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board direct:

 

·         DPWES to review and update the Camp, Dresser and McKee report of 1982 to current conditions to determine if the recommended flood control improvements contained therein will protect the Huntington Community.

 

·         The Risk Management Division and the County Attorney’s Office to review the responsibility and liability of the County, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the Federal government for Huntington’s flood damage.

 

·         County staff to return by the Board’s first meeting in September with a plan to construct a flood wall or other alternative structures and facilities to prevent future flooding in the Huntington Community.

 

·         Staff to add a Budget Consideration Item in an amount considered necessary for staff to update the 1982 report through a contract with the Corps of Engineers and to begin planning for a project to remedy this problem of flooding in the Huntington community.

 

                        Chairman Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

Supervisor Gross asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to report with information on any projects that must be set aside because of this new request.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

51.                   OUTDOOR INTERACTIVE FOUNTAINS  (12:29 p.m.)

 

With reference to his written Board Matter as distributed around the dais, Supervisor Hyland, jointly with Supervisor Kauffman, raised the issue of public safety concerns and requirements regarding outdoor interactive fountains.  Jointly with Supervisor Kauffman, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to review this item and examine applicable rules and regulations.

 

Anthony H. Griffin, County Executive, noted that the issue with Fairfax Corner has been resolved and that it related to the cleanliness of the water.

 

Without objection, the request was so ordered.

 

Discussion ensued regarding fountains and public safety and the need for clear direction.

 

52.                   LOTCONSOLIDATION SUBMISSION FEE EXEMPTION  (12:32 p.m.)

 

As he had noted in Board Matters at previous meetings, Supervisor Hyland said that Hollin Hall Village is threatened with infill development that could double the density of homes in that community.  With reference to his written Board Matter, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to initiate the process to amend the Subdivision Ordinance to create a fee exemption for minor lot line adjustments for consolidating two lots into one when a residence has been constructed previously on two lots and report with its findings.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 


53.                   RESOLUTION FOR MRS. ANNE TROTT’S ONE HUNDREDTH BIRTHDAY (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (12:33 p.m.)

           

                        Supervisor Hyland announced that on August 9, Mrs. Anne Troth will celebrate her one hundredth birthday.  Accordingly, he asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to prepare a resolution in commemoration of this momentous occasion.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

54.                   SCHEDULING OF PUBLIC HEARINGS  (12:33 p.m.)

 

                        With reference to his written Board Matter and corresponding email, Supervisor Hyland noted that at the last Board meeting, a Mount Vernon District resident had to wait almost four hours past the scheduled public hearing start time to speak on the Transportation Plan.  Accordingly, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive to review the email and provide recommendations.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

55.                   LAW LIBRARY  (12:34 p.m.)

 

With reference to his written Board Matter on the subject, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to add improvements to the County’s Law Library in the amount of $193,000 to the Consideration Item list for Carryover.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

56.                   WILDWOOD REZONING VACATION (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (12:34 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hyland stated that Calvert Homes, Incorporated has filed a rezoning application for properties located in the Mount Vernon District of the County, which includes Tax Map numbers 107-2 ((2)) 15-22 and 24a, along with a small portion of Midway Place, a public right-of-way, located east of Wildwood Street in the Wildwood Subdivision and shown on Tax Map number 107-2 ((2)).  Since the affected portion of Midway Place is a public right-of-way, its inclusion in the rezoning application requires the authorization of the Board.  This portion of Midway Place is a dead-end that the applicant proposes to vacate to allow a continuous frontage of residential property along Wildwood Street.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland moved that the Board authorize the filing of a rezoning application on the section of Midway Place located east of Wildwood Street in the Wildwood Subdivision, as generally identified in the rezoning application filed in the name of Calvert Homes, Incorporated, and as also shown on Tax Map 107-2 ((2)).  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 


57.                   CONGRATULATIONS (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT)  (12:35 p.m.)

 

(NOTE: Earlier in the meeting, the community presented an award to Supervisor Hyland.  See Clerk’s Summary Item #2.)

 

                        Chairman Connolly congratulated Supervisor Hyland on his award from the Huntington community.

 

58.                   LAKEBRADDOCKCOMMUNITY ASSOCIATION (LBCA) ASHBOURN POOLHOUSE ADDITION FOR COMMUNITY OFFICE SPACE: REQUEST FOR EXPEDITIOUS AND CONCURRENT PROCESSING FOR MINOR SITE PLAN AND ASSOCIATED APPLICATIONS (BRADDOCK DISTRICT)  (12:36 p.m.)

 

                        Supervisor Bulova stated that the LBCA, a non-profit homeowners association of 1,300 detached and townhouse residences, is working diligently to correct a 30 plus year zoning violation.  The LBCA had been operating out of a two-story, walkout residential unit that was not zoned for office or lawn equipment storage and repair.  Also, the office was not accessible under the Americans with Disabilities Act.  To correct the deficiencies and remove the non-compatible uses from the stick row of residential units, LBCA is pursuing approval to build an addition to its pool house at Ashbourn Drive.  Due to the use of the existing building as a pool facility during the summer months, the construction of the addition needs to begin in early September to be completed by May 2007.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova moved that the Board direct the Director of the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services to expedite processing for, and review concurrently, the minor site plan and remaining plats, waivers, permits, and related documents and applications to allow construction to begin as soon as possible.  She noted that this motion does not relieve the applicant of compliance with the provisions of any applicable ordinances, regulations, or adopted standards.  Supervisor McConnell seconded the motion, which carried by a vote of nine, Supervisor Hyland being out of the room.

 

59.                   THE GIBSON-PARKER FAMILY CELEBRATION OF THE ILDA COMMUNITY (BRADDOCK DISTRICT)  (12:38 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Bulova noted that in the Braddock Oral History Book, Braddock’s True Gold, there are several mentions of a community called Ilda.  Founded in the 1860s by ex-slaves Horace Gibson and Moses Parker, the little community grew as residents purchased small five-acre lots, which were part of the Ravensworth Plantation, near the corner of Guinea Road and Little River Turnpike.  Mr. Gibson and Mr. Parker were both blacksmiths, and they opened up a blacksmith shop at the corner of Little River Turnpike and what is today Prosperity Avenue. 

 

Supervisor Bulova said that recently old graves were discovered at the southwest intersection of Guinea Road and Little River Turnpike.  Already described as “The Old Cemetery” on nineteenth century maps, local tenant farmers, African-American slaves, and freedmen are believed to have been interred at the cemetery.  The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is conducting testing on the skeletal remains found at the site and plans to re-inter the remains at Pleasant Valley Memorial Park Cemetery in Annandale.  Additionally, the History Commission is planning to have a historic marker installed at the re-internment site. 

 

Supervisor Bulova said that she was contacted by Dennis Howard, who participated in the A Look Back at Braddock Oral History project and is a descendent of the Gibson-Parker family.  Mr. Howard believes that some of the remains discovered at Guinea Road and Little River Turnpike may be his ancestors. 

 

Supervisor Bulova explained that Mr. Howard and his family are planning a family reunion and celebration of the Ilda Community on September 30.  She added that she will be attending part of the celebration during a ceremony at Pleasant Valley Memorial Park Cemetery from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. and has offered to present a Proclamation honoring the Gibson-Parker family.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Bulova asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Office of Public Affairs to prepare a Proclamation, and that it be signed by all Members of the Board.  Without objection, it was so ordered.

 

60.                   VIRGINIA’S CLEAN AIR INTERSTATE RULE (CAIR)  (12:40 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross said that the Washington, DC Metropolitan area, including the County and the rest of Northern Virginia, is currently working to develop air quality measures and practices that would help the region meet new federal standards for both ground-level ozone (smog) and particulate pollution (haze).  A key regulation under development by the Commonwealth of Virginia’s State Air Pollution Control Board (SAPCB), the CAIR, has important implications for meeting these standards.  She asserted that it is critical that the County file comments during the 60-day public comment period on the VA CAIR rule, July 10 to September 8, 2006.  In addition, she said that testimony at the public hearing on August 24 will be very valuable.  She provided additional background information to the Board.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board:

 

·         Approve the letter which urges the SAPCB to consider modifying the proposed rule (revision E05) to conform to the requirements of HB 1055 (SB 651) that was adopted by the 2006 General Assembly and endorsed by the Board.

 

·         Direct the County Executive to arrange for the County to give testimony at the public hearing on August 24 in Richmond regarding this proposed rule (revision E05).

 

Supervisor Smyth seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being out of the room.

 

A brief discussion ensued regarding the public hearing, with input from Kambiz Agazi, County Environmental Coordinator.

 

61.                   REQUEST FOR EXPEDITED PROCESSING OF PROFFERED CONDITION AMENDMENT APPLICATION PCA 2001-MA-049 (MASON DISTRICT)  (12:43 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Gross said that on June 3, 2003, the Board approved Rezoning Application RZ 2001-MA-049 filed by Seville Homes LLC.  That rezoning permitted the development of 12 homes in the PDH-5 District along Evergreen Lane in Annandale.  Since one of the benefits of that rezoning was the redevelopment of several unsightly properties, one of the proffers phased the new development to the removal of the existing homes.  One of the existing homes is occupied by a physician who, unfortunately, is taking longer to close his practice than originally anticipated.  A proffered condition amendment has been filed to amend the phasing proffer to permit the doctor time to close his practice while still permitting the development to proceed.

 

Noting that she discussed the situation with staff, Supervisor Gross moved that the Board direct staff to expedite the processing of Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 2001-MA-049.  This motion shall not be construed to prejudge the outcome of the application in any way.  Vice-Chairman Bulova seconded the motion, and it carried by a vote of nine, Chairman Connolly being out of the room.

 

62.                   STATUS OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT WAITING LIST FOR HOUSING  (12:44 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins reported that every month her office assists Hunter Mill District constituents and individuals from across the County with their housing needs, often including an individual’s status on the County’s housing waiting list.  In a particular case, a status check revealed that a shelter resident in question had a place holder on three of the programs.

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that, moreover, a July 20 article in the Washington Examiner reported that the County’s waiting list had jumped by approximately 1,000 names in one month’s time to 13,173.  While the County attempts to eradicate homelessness in the County, she expressed her hope that it is not moving drastically in the other direction.

 

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

 

·         A detailed response as to what was the cause in the sudden increase in the County’s wait list.

 

·         A detailed assessment of the County’s housing waiting lists, how clients on the waiting list are tracked as they move from place to place waiting for housing, and how the County prioritizes the list by need and income bracket.

 

Supervisor Frey seconded the motion and asked to amend it to direct staff to provide information on the Redevelopment and Housing Authority’s action regarding a change in the income levels allowable for assistance to explain its expected ramification to the waiting list also, and this was accepted.

 

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

 

63.                   COPPERMINEELEMENTARY SCHOOL(HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (12:48 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that the School Board filed Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 2002-HM-035 for its property located on Tax Map Parcel 15-4-((1))-35A, the site of the future Coppermine Elementary School.  The application proposes to amend the previously approved proffers to permit the School Board to reverse, and slightly modify, the previously approved building footprint.  Minor revisions to the layout of the recreational fields will provide better grading options and will enable enhancements to the on-site screening.  No additional improvements or increase in intensity of use are proposed with this amendment. 

Supervisor Hudgins noted that the School Board's site plan for Coppermine Elementary School is ready to be filed, and site plan review must begin to enable the school to open as scheduled in September 2008.  Expedited review of Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 2002-HM-035, and concurrent site plan review, are essential for the School Board to maintain this schedule.  The reconfigured site layout has received support from the Department of Planning and Zoning’s Zoning Evaluation Division (ZED) and the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) because it is more favorable in a number of ways than the site layout previously approved.

Therefore Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board:

 

·         Direct DPWES to process the Coppermine Elementary School site plan concurrently with the review of Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 2002-HM-035.

 

·         Direct ZED to give expedited review of Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 2002-HM-035, with a Board public hearing date on or before December 4, 2006.

 

·         Authorize the ZED to waive the filing fee for Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 2002-HM-035.

 

Supervisor Hudgins noted that this motion shall not be construed as a favorable recommendation by the Board or staff on the proposed application 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.

 

Following discussion, with input from David P. Bobzien, County Attorney, regarding the Board’s authority to waive the fee, Supervisor Hudgins asked to amend her motion to make it conditional upon the County Attorney’s determination that it is permissible, and this was accepted.

 

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

 

64.                   WAIVER OF FEES FOR THE VIENNA POLICE DEPARTMENT (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (12:52 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins stated that the Town of Vienna Police Department is preparing to start interior renovations of the Town Hall Basement located at 217 Center Street, South, for use by the Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Section.  The department will be submitting the plans and application for the project which will require building permit and subsequent inspections by the County’s Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES).  The cost of applicable permit and inspection fees is approximately $2,000.  The Town has requested a waiver of all County building and inspection fees for the interior renovations of the Town Hall basement for the use by the Vienna Police Department.

 

Accordingly, Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board direct staff of DPWES to exempt the Town of Vienna from all building and inspections fees associated with the Vienna Police Department’s renovation of the Town Hall basement located at 217 Center Street, South, Vienna.  Chairman Connolly seconded the motion, which carried by unanimous vote.

 

65.                   HERITAGE FELLOWSHIP UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST (HUNTER MILL DISTRICT)  (12:53 p.m.)

 

Supervisor Hudgins said that the applicant Heritage Fellowship United Church of Christ has pending Rezoning Application RZ 2006-HM-001 and Special Permit Amendment Application SPA 84-C-045 and has been working with County staff, the Hunter Mill Land Use Committee, and the community to address concerns raised by the community.  Their efforts have been successful at addressing most concerns raised, and they have requested an expedited review of the application concurrent with the processing of the site plan.

 

Supervisor Hudgins moved that the Board:

Supervisor McConnell moved that the Board direct staff to concurrently process the site plan with the final development plan amendment.  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.  Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.

Jointly with Supervisor Kauffman, Supervisor Smyth referred to applications for development at Metro stations and how the site is developed with private development and how it interrelates with the Metro station and parking at the Metro station.

 

Therefore, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board:

 

·         Direct County staff, in consultation with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), to review Metro Station parking policies to determine the possibility of creating flexible parking policies tailored to fit the future functional needs of each Metro station.

 

·         Re-evaluate Metro and Connector Bus service needs at transit stations before new transit oriented developments are constructed to ensure that expanded bus service is coordinated to meet the anticipated demands for service in a timely fashion.

81.               CONCURRENT PROCESSING OF SITE PLAN ASSOCIATED WITH SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION SE 2006-PR-008 (PROVIDENCE DISTRICT)  (1:17 p.m.)

To that end, and with the applicant’s full understanding of the risks associated with concurrent site plan processing, Supervisor Smyth moved that the Board approve concurrent processing of the site plan for the pending Special Exception Application SE-2006-PR-008.  This motion does not relieve Sonic Development from compliance with the provisions of all applicable ordinances, regulations, and adopted standards and does not prejudice in any way the consideration of their Special Exception application.  Supervisor Bulova seconded the motion and it carried by unanimous vote.
