«CLERK'S BOARD SUMMARY REPORT OF ACTIONS OF THE FAIRFAX COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS MONDAY September 14, 2009 This does not represent a verbatim ...»

-- [ Page 8 ] --
TELEVISION CONVERSION (7:33 p.m.) Supervisor Herrity noted that as of June 12, television stations nationwide have been broadcasting exclusively in a digital format. Leading up to this date, there was growing concern that some of the County’s older adults and adults with disabilities would need assistance preparing for this nationwide transition.

Volunteer Solutions, a program of the Department of Family Services’ Fairfax Area Agency on Aging, recruited volunteers to install TV conversion equipment.

The Department of Cable Communications and Consumer Protection then trained these volunteers. Since that time, seven County volunteers installed conversion equipment into the homes of more than 179 senior County residents.

Supervisor Herrity asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite the following volunteers, Scott Bennyhoff, Elliott (Pete) Brown, John Peters, Albert (Len) Pfeifer, Randall Scott, Glen Willis, and Herb Won, to appear before the Board to be thanked and congratulated on a job well done and presented with a certificate of recognition. Without objection, it was so ordered.

80. FORECLOSURES AND AFFORDABLE DWELLING UNITS (ADUs)

(7:36 p.m.) Jointly with Supervisor Hudgins, Supervisor McKay said that the County has witnessed a steady increase in foreclosures on its stock of ADUs. Often, foreclosures by lenders who have provided first trust purchase money loans to ADU owners may be able to sell the properties at foreclosure free of the ADU restrictions if certain requirements are met. Although the Zoning Ordinance provides that the County is entitled to share in the foreclosure proceeds above the maximum control price, the unit is lost as affordable housing. In addition, a number of ADU purchasers have obtained loans in excess of the maximum control price for their units. Although no lender should be permitted to sell any of these properties at foreclosure for amounts in excess of the maximum control price, the present Virginia foreclosure statute does not adequately address this situation. The result has been confusion and uncertainty in virtually every foreclosure involving an ADU where a lender has provided financing in excess of the maximum control price.

In recognition of the inadequacy of the current foreclosure procedures set out in the Code of Virginia to fairly and adequately deal with ADUs, Supervisor McKay

moved that the Board:

81. WALKING TO SCHOOL (7:37 p.m.) Supervisor McKay said that a year ago, he presented a Board Matter about school districts that are updating an old method of getting children to school—walking.

One school district in Columbia, Missouri has redrawn its school bus route and instituted a ‘walking school bus’ where children are supervised by adults as they walk to school. The walking school bus concept is expanding into a number of communities across the country.

Supervisor McKay referred to his written Board Matter and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the County Executive again to share this suggestion with the School Board for consideration and action during the upcoming joint budget reviews or refer this to the Smart Savings Task Force as an agenda item.

Supervisor Hudgins seconded the motion.

Following a brief discussion regarding children walking to school, the question was called on the motion and it carried by vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor Gross being absent.

82. REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR LIEUTENANT

COLONEL SUZANNE DEVLIN (7:41p.m.) Supervisor McKay said that Lieutenant Colonel Suzanne Devlin has retired after 33 years of service with the Police Department. During those years, she held a variety of assignments including Station Commander, Patrol Division Commander, Internal Affairs Crime Prevention, Director of the Criminal Justice Academy, Deputy Chief of Administration, Acting Police Chief in 2004, and finally, as Deputy Chief of Investigation and Operations Support.

Supervisor McKay referred to his written Board Matter outlining Lieutenant Colonel Devlin’s accomplishments and asked unanimous consent that the Board direct staff to invite her to appear before the Board at a future meeting for formal recognition of her service. Without objection, it was so ordered.

83. NO BOARD MATTERS FOR SUPERVISOR SMYTH (PROVIDENCE

DISTRICT) (7:41 p.m.) Supervisor Smyth announced that she had no Board Matters to present today.

84. DULLES DISCOVERY SOUTH RIGHT-OF-WAY (SULLY DISTRICT) (7:42 p.m.)

it to acquire on behalf of the Park Authority a parcel at the terminus of Barnsfield Road, to serve as a buffer for the Sully Historic Site. The applicant also has acquired two parcels at the eastern end of Barnsfield Road at its intersection with Centreville Road, and now owns all of the land on either side of the entirety Barnsfield Road, except for the Park Authority "buffer" parcel.





Due to market and economic considerations unforeseen at the time the rezoning was approved, the applicant now intends to file a proffered condition amendment on a portion of the site, and a concurrent rezoning application as well as a special exception for increase in building height to facilitate development of a secure government office park. The proposed plan contemplates the elimination of Barnsfield Road and redevelopment of the underlying land, consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.

Therefore, on behalf of Supervisor Frey, Supervisor Cook moved that the Board authorize the inclusion of approximately 1.9919 acres of right-of-way for a portion of Barnsfield Road (Route 763) within the land area of Proffered Condition Amendment Application PCA 2003-SU-035, as well as rezoning and special exception applications to be filed concurrently therewith. The right-ofway areas to be included are adjacent to tax map parcels 34-2-((1))-2, 3A, 7, 8, 10A, 27 and 35. This motion does not relieve the applicant from complying with all regulations, ordinances, or adopted standards, and does not predetermine or prejudice the consideration of the rezoning applications or future abandonment/vacation requests in any way. Supervisor Hyland seconded the motion and it carried by a vote of eight, Supervisor Frey being out of the room, Supervisor Gross being absent.

85. RECOGNITION OF BURKE CENTER LIBRARY DESIGN TEAM

(BRADDOCK DISTRICT) (7:44 p.m.) Supervisor Cook announced that the Potomac Valley Chapter of the American Institute of Architects awarded the Burke Centre Library the 2009 Award of Merit for the building's "thorough integration of sustainable strategies." The Institute noted specifically the rainwater collection system and use of ample natural daylighting for the building interior.

Therefore, Supervisor Cook asked unanimous consent that the Board offer its congratulations to the architect of this project, Grimm and Parker Architects of McLean, Virginia as well as to Katayoon Shaya, a senior architect for the County, who served as project manager. Without objection, it was so ordered.

Chairman Bulova suggested that the Board look for an opportunity to express its appreciation to the team.

Supervisor Hyland said that for 20 years, the residents of Lookout Court have lobbied State representatives to have the street repaved. Improper construction and poor drainage caused the road to become increasingly cracked and full of potholes. Two weeks after Lookout Court finally received a fresh coat of asphalt, a telecommunications crew spray painted the road in preparation of a fiber optic cable installation, which will require them to cut and patch the court. The issuance of the permit to perform the utility work should have been better coordinated with the scheduled repaving.

Therefore, Supervisor Hyland asked unanimous consent that the Board direct the Department of Transportation to discuss this matter with Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) staff and report with information on how coordination is currently done and recommend possible improvements. Without objection, it was so ordered.

87. HYDRILIA IN WESSYNTON (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT) (7:47 p.m.)

Supervisor Hyland said that a resident of the Wessynton community recently spoke to him about the spread of hydrilla in Little Hunting Creek and the other coves and bays along the Potomac River and his concern that it is beginning to hinder navigation and threaten the lives of those who choose to swim where it grows. In the 1980s, the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACOE) Baltimore District entered into an agreement with Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia, and the Metropolitan Council of Governments (COG) to control hydrilla and other nuisance plants in the Potomac River under their Aquatic Plant Control Program. In the past few years, many creeks have been cleared of hydrilla as part of this program. However, due to budget constraints, last year the State withdrew funding for hydrilla removal. According to watermen and those who live along the water, the hydrilla is once again growing faster than has been seen in many years.

88. LOBSTERFEST (MOUNT VERNON DISTRICT) (7:48 p.m.) Supervisor Hyland announced that a lobsterfest and a ceremonial throw away of his last crutch event will be held on October 3 in Mount Vernon District.
