(General Discussion. Councilwoman Pepper stated that she would abstain from participating in the discussion and voting on this item. Some years ago, she received a very generous contribution from a party that is involved in this item. Although she felt that she could be objective in this matter, she wanted to be absolutely certain that there is no doubt in anyone's mind.

Councilman Speck brought up an issue related to revenues that has a long-term consequence. He indicated that some time early next fall he really hopes that Council can have some specific discussion about the issue of docking fees versus the personal property tax.

Councilman Jackson stated that he does plan to vote tonight and vote in the affirmative to Councilman Speck's motion. He stated for the record as he always does when this issue comes up, that he received a contribution from a party who is an interested party in this matter tonight, but he does not have a conflict under the law and he does intend to exercise the responsibility that he was elected to exercise which is to vote on every issue where he does not have a conflict. He stated that if he had had any kind of conflict from the very beginning he would not have accepted the contribution from the individual. He indicated that there is an item on the docket, item 59, where he will be abstaining because he does have a conflict because of his employment. He stated that he felt that this matter is quite a bit different and he felt that he would be remiss in his responsibilities if he did not vote.)

WHEREUPON, upon motion by Councilman Speck, seconded by Vice Mayor Cleveland and carried on a vote of 6-to-0, City Council (1) approved a five-year license agreement with the Potomac Riverboat Company to berth a commercial vessel at the City Marina; and (2) authorized the City Manager to sign the agreement.

(A copy of the City Manager's memorandum dated June 11, 1993, is on file in the office of the City Clerk and Clerk of Council, marked Exhibit No. 1 of Item No. 45(a); 6/22/93, and is incorporated herewith as part of this record by reference.)

(General Discussion. Ms. Davis, Director of Housing, responded to questions asked by Members of City Council.)

WHEREUPON, upon motion by Councilwoman Pepper, seconded by Vice Mayor Cleveland and carried unanimously, City Council (1) approved a $300,000 low-interest loan to Carpenter's Lodgings, Inc. (CLI), to assist in the purchase and renovation of the subject property, contingent upon the anticipated receipt of sufficient monies in the Housing Trust Fund, to be disbursed after CLI receives commitments for all other required permanent financing. Staff recommends that the loan be provided for a term of 20 years, with no payments and no interest during the first five years, and with the loan fully amortized over the next 15 years. Loan payments would be made annually in years 6 through 20.

NOTE: The Affordable Housing Advisory Committee voted on June 3 to support the reservation of $300,000 for this project, to be disbursed upon the assurance of permanent financing that does not materially change the nature of the project.

WHEREUPON, upon motion by Councilwoman Pepper, seconded by Vice Mayor Cleveland and carried unanimously, City Council (1) determined, in this instance only, that the public hearing on the Conversion Assistance Plan held by the Landlord-Tenant Relations Board on June 15 is sufficient and that Council need not hold an additional public hearing. This is recommended because City approval of this project prior to Council's summer recess is a critical factor in improving the project's chances of receiving the remaining needed private interim financing as well as the requested permanent financing currently being considered by the state; (2) approved the Alexandria (Bowen) Apartments Conversion Assistance Plan with the Landlord-Tenant Relations Board recommendations (Attachment I and II of the City Manager's memorandum); and (3) authorized the City Manager to sign a legal conversion agreement between Carpenter's Lodgings, Inc., and the City of Alexandria.

The representatives of the civic associations and ATA are in agreement with this approach. The voting was as follows:

Speck "aye" Cleveland "aye"
Pepper "aye" Donley "aye"
Ticer "aye" Jackson "aye"

He stated that he favors tenant representation in any further discussions about the future of this public housing. (A copy of Vice Mayor Cleveland's statement is on file in the office of the City Clerk and Clerk of Council, marked Exhibit No. 1 of Oral Presentation (b); 6/22/93, and is incorporated herewith as part of this record by reference.)

Members of City Council participated in the discussion.

(c) Councilwoman Pepper congratulated all of the T.C. Williams High School seniors who graduated on June 21. She thanked all of those people who worked so hard to make the all-night graduation party a success.

(d) Councilwoman Pepper congratulated those for making the Alexandria Red Cross Waterfront Festival a smashing success again this year. She indicated that there were no complaints and no arrests by the end of the three-day event. She stressed that that really is quite a statement.

(e) Councilwoman Pepper indicated that some years ago she had urged that the City have a study of the Duke Street Corridor in terms of improving its appearance. She has expressed concern about all of the corridors throughout the City. She indicated that now, at least, the Duke Street Corridor is going forward with an urban design element and she looks forward to seeing what comes out of it. She stated that she understood that the civic associations that are involved or near the Duke Street corridor have been or will be notified for their participation in this.




22


Mr. Lynn indicated that staff had put in the mail to all of the neighborhood organizations along Duke Street an invitation to work with staff in developing urban design guidelines as the City has already done on Mt. Vernon Avenue. He is sending Council the first draft of guidelines for Mt. Vernon Avenue.

(f) Councilman Donley reported that he recently met with four counterparts from Russia at the National League of Cities. It was a very interesting discussion about the difficulties that the Russian government is having in terms of privatization of industry, the private ownership of property as well as intergovernmental relations. He indicated that they are experiencing the same problems in two years that the City has been experiencing for two-hundred years.

(g) Councilman Donley indicated that he recently gave a presentation to the King Street Metro Enterprise Team regarding some business development issues. One of the items that they brought up was the trolley that would go up and down King Street. The core of the issue revolves around increased access in the Central Business District.

Councilman Donley requested the City Manager to contact KISMET and get some representatives from DASH and the City government to meet with them and talk about how we might improve transit access to the Central Business District. He indicated that they concentrate on particular heavy periods of time, i.e. the Christmas season, weekends and evenings in the summertime and in coordination with special events that might occur in the City. He stressed that the City needs to pay attention to the increased transit demands, not only the demand but also the benefits of increased off-street parking as well as reduced vehicular traffic here in Old Town.

Mayor Ticer suggested that staff look into all of the research that was done a couple of weeks ago with respect to a specific proposal by Cynthia Fondriest.

Mr. O'Kane and the City Manager participated in the discussion.

(h) Council Member Rich announced that Project New Course is sponsoring a debate on the issue of elected school boards on Tuesday, June 29, at T. C. Williams High School. Project New Course is a non-partisan grassroots organization interested in the long-term future of the City and fostering honest debate and discussion on issues that affect this City. He indicated that Vice Mayor Cleveland and Councilman Speck will be on opposite sides of the issue. Vice Mayor Cleveland is in favor and Councilman Speck is in opposition.

(i) Councilman Speck pointed out one thing with respect to the Waterfront Festival and that is that he was down in the area of the Festival very early Monday morning and he was amazed at the absence of any evidence that there had been a Festival. They did an extraordinary job of cleanup. He, with the concurrence of Council, requested the City Clerk to convey Council's appreciation to the respective department heads of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities, Transportation and Environmental Services, and the Police Department with a request to them to pass it along to their employees that they did a mighty fine job. It sure is nice to have the debriefing on that as positive as it was.

Members of City Council agreed to Councilman Speck's comments.




23


Mr. Kauffman, Director of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities, stated with all due respect to our respective staffs who did work very hard throughout the entire Festival and the trash removal was done as expeditiously as possible, but the Red Cross themselves had a core group of volunteers that really pitched in.

City Council also requested the City Clerk to extend a very special appreciation to the Waterfront group of the Red Cross for its effort.

(j) Councilman Speck requested that Mr. O'Kane, Director of Transportation and Environmental Services, and the Police Department report back in the fall with recommendations on any changes that can occur to improve traffic safety in the 2700 block of Russell Road. This was the site of a recent traffic fatality.

Mayor Ticer also requested that staff check the corner of Payne and King Street also with respect to safety.
