Board Matter

Arlington County Public Safety Radio System Upgrades
Expedited processing of
FDPA - C - 108-3 and the
associated 2232 application

December 5, 2005

Mr. Chairman:
The Arlington County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is in the process of upgrading its public safety radio system. This system supports Arlington County's emergency first responders (police, fire and emergency medical), and also the City of Falls Church and mutual aid operation with Fairfax County. Arlington is also replacing its public safety mobile digital communication system for public safety.

Since 1991, Arlington County has utilized the building at 6400 Arlington Boulevard, Tax Map 51-3 (1) 1B, currently BB&T Bank, for a telecommunication facility in addition to sites within Arlington County. That facility/final development plan was approved on October 22, 1991.

Arlington County OEM has filed the necessary Section 15.2-2232 application with the Department of Planning and Zoning, and has also filed a required rezoning application package, to include building ownership concurrence. Arlington County is requesting approval of new radio antennas and microwave dish antennas to support its communication systems. Arlington also utilizes space within the building to house the necessary radio system equipment.

Arlington County OEM has requested expedited processing of its applications.


I move that the Board direct staff of the Department of Planning and Zoning to proceed with expedited processing of Arlington County's pending 2232 application and FDPA-C-108-3.

This motion does not relieve the Applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not prejudice the consideration of the pending 2232 and FDP applications in any way.
