OPENING

1. Calling the Roll.

The Meeting was called to Order by Mayor Donley, and the City Clerk called the Roll; all Members of City Council were present except Council Member Rich.


2. Public Discussion Period.

(a) Stephen Smith, 3011 Meeting Street, Falls Church, VA, representing the Science Center of Northern Virginia, gave an overview of what the Science Center is all about. The Science Center of Northern Virginia is an educational non-profit corporation in Virginia that wants to bring a full-service science and cultural center to Northern Virginia, but more particularly to the City of Alexandria. A slide presentation was given of the proposed science center. They are starting to explore the possibilities of locating the center in Alexandria.






(b) Jonas Neihardt, 725 South Pitt Street, representing the All-Tunnel Alliance, thanked Council for its advocacy on behalf of Alexandria on the issue of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and tunnel controversy.

(c) Ben Brown, 810 South Lee Street, representing the All-Tunnel Alliance, also thanked the Council for its support. He spoke to the costs of the Monitor-Merrimac Tunnel which is located in Newport News, VA. He indicated that the Design Center has been requested to get them comparables on the last eight reasonably and similarly-scaled tunnels because they think there is an enormous discrepancy in the figures that are being published.

Vice Mayor Pepper requested the City Manager to arrange for the Council to see a film on the I-90 completion project which Mr. Brown alluded to.

Mayor Donley stated at a recent meeting he attended with City staff, David Keever from the Coordinating Committee, and David Gendell from the Federal Highway Administration, with respect to these issues and thought that there was some consensus reached that (1) the construction time periods which were stated at the coordinating committee last month to be 12 years are grossly inaccurate, which was a concern; (2) due consideration and study will be given to the cost elements relative to a ten-lane option as opposed to a twelve-lane option, one that would not necessarily include dedicated HOV facilities which he believes will dramatically reduce the costs; and (3) they have been asked to look at differing construction methodology. Mr. O'Kane and his staff will promote the Alexandria position.
