James Lee Conservation Plan Board Matter

November 21, 2005
Temporary Extension of the
James Lee Conservation Plan

Mr. Chairman:
The Board of Supervisors adopted the James Lee Neighborhood Improvement Program and Conservation Plan on December 8, 1980. The Conservation Plan's controls, regulations and standards to guide the conservation and rehabilitation in the community, are set to expire on December 8, 2005. However, James Lee community representatives have requested that the Conservation Plan be amended to extend the timeframe, among other things.

The Conservation Plan provides that any proposed amendments shall be submitted to the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) for a public hearing, prior to the Board taking action.


Therefore, I move that the Board approve an emergency resolution to extend the effectiveness of the James Lee Conservation Plan temporarily for 60 days from today, November 21, 2005, to allow the Housing Authority to hold a public hearing on December 15th on a proposal to amend the expiration date of the Conservation Plan by six months to June 15, 2006.

I further move that the Board authorize a public hearing on January 9, 2006 for a six
month extension, which will allow adequate time to obtain public input on any proposed
amendments to the Conservation Plan and to coordinate with the appropriate County
agencies which must review proposed final amendments to the Conservation Plan.

Since a portion of the Conservation Plan is located in the City of Falls Church, which also adopted the Conservation Plan in 1980, these temporary extensions would only apply to the Conservation Plan area within Fairfax County's jurisdiction. To ensure that the County and City effectively coordinate the extension and possible modifications to the Conservation District Plan, I move that the appropriate Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) staff coordinate with their counterparts in the City of Falls Church.

These motions do not prejudice in any way the consideration of the pending review of amendments to the
James Lee Conservation Plan.
