The following person participated in the public hearing on this item:

Harry P. Hart, 207 North Washington Street, attorney representing the applicant, was available to answer questions.

Mayor Donley directed questions to Mr. Hart with respect to parking and to have it in place by the opening of the new school year.

Transportation and Environmental Services Director O'Kane and Attorney Hart responded to the Mayor's questions.

Mr. Hart stated that he and Mrs. Tucker of Lynhaven have spoken about the most current proposal at which they are looking with nose-in parking which puts more parking spaces towards Reed Avenue. He indicated that there is about 350 feet from the south to the north end of the property along Commonwealth Avenue. If you park cars at about 20 feet per space, that's about 15 parking spaces that can go parallel, and if you park in 10 feet wide spaces and angle in that's a lot more spaces. You can get the same 15 parking spaces that you could get parallel parking on Commonwealth Avenue in half the distance if you angle them. He stated what they are looking at and comparing the costs because it makes a difference. Suppose you angled in the 15 cars, instead of doing the whole 350 feet, and suppose you took the same number of cars you could get there and parallel park and angled them in close to Reed Avenue, and then had a drive aisle that you drove out onto and drove around to nose out onto Commonwealth Avenue. The engineer is looking at it. There is about 45 feet of City-owned property there to do that and they are looking at it to see whether it is something that is both economically feasible and reasonable to do from a traffic standpoint. The applicant will work with staff on this.

Councilwoman Pepper spoke to Ms. Doherty's concern about the lack of any major inclusion of bicycle spaces within the TMP in the garage. She requested the inclusion of some 200 bicycle locker or rack spaces.

Mr. Hart stated that they have talked with Del Ray and he has agreed with Bill Hendrickson of Del Ray and Richard Rose has agreed with him that they will make a reasonable provision for bicycle storage in the garage. He will work with staff on what is reasonable in that regard.

Council Member Walker expressed concern about the complexity of the intersection of Route 1 and East Reed Avenue. She would like to see some additional pedestrian movements addressed in the transportation management plan with the request to continue to work with the City to see if we can figure out easier ways to get across Route 1. She would be happy to work with them to get a better bus stop.

Mr. Hart would be happy to work with the City on this.

WHEREUPON, upon motion by Councilwoman Pepper, seconded by Vice Mayor Euille and carried unanimously, City Council approved the recommendation of the Planning Commission and approved the request, subject to compliance with all applicable codes, ordinances and staff recommendations, and with the request that the applicant work with the City in having bicycle storage in the parking lot.

ORDINANCE NO. 4039

AN ORDINANCE to amend and reordain Ordinance No. 2165, to grant a one-year extension of franchise rights to Bell Atlantic-Virginia, Incorporated, formerly known as the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company of Virginia.

WHEREAS, on March 22, 1977, the city council enacted Ordinance No. 2165 which granted a franchise to the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company of Virginia and its successors and assigns "to use the streets, alleys, and other public places" of the City of Alexandria, "and to acquire, erect, maintain and use posts, poles, wires, manholes, ducts, cables, conduits, electrical conductors, fixtures, appliances, appurtenances, and all other necessary apparatus in, under, over and along the streets, alleys and public places of the city for the purpose of providing a telephone and telegraph service and system within the corporate limits of the city";

WHEREAS, Section 17 of Ordinance No. 2165 provided that the franchise rights and privileges provided by the ordinance were to continue for a term of twenty years from May 1, 1977;

WHEREAS, the twenty-year term contemplated in Ordinance No. 2165 expired on May 1, 1997;

WHEREAS, on March 18, 1997, the Virginia General Assembly approved legislation amending and reenacting sections 56-458 and 56-462 of the Code of Virginia, relating to payments by telephone companies to local governments for the use of the localities' rights-of-way (the “1997 Legislation”);

WHEREAS, the 1997 Legislation, which was to expire on July 1, 1998, prohibited cities in the Commonwealth from imposing on telephone companies any fees, including franchise, permit and inspection fees, and from requiring the provision of in-kind services or physical assets from such companies, in return for the right to use any public rights-of-way, except to the extent that such fees, in-kind services or physical assets were required to be provided by ordinance, permit, agreement or franchises as of February 1, 1997;








WHEREAS, due to the 1997 Legislation and in anticipation of new legislation being adopted during the 1998 session of the General Assembly, the city council enacted on October 25, 1997, Ordinance No. 3961 which extended the franchise granted by Ordinance No. 2165 to Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company of Virginia (then known as Bell Atlantic-Virginia, Incorporated (“Bell Atlantic”)) and its successors and assigns for an additional two-year period until April 30, 1999;

WHEREAS, on July 1, 1998, the 1997 Legislation expired and was replaced with other amendments to sections 56-458 and 56-462 of the Code of Virginia, adopted by the General Assembly during its 1998 session, which established a fee system that localities could impose on telephone companies in return for their use of the localities' rights-of-way (the “1998 Legislation”);

WHEREAS, on June 13, 1998, the city council enacted an Ordinance No. 4011 which imposed the fee system authorized by the 1998 Legislation on Bell Atlantic, the successor to Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company of Virginia;

WHEREAS, due to other pressing business, Bell Atlantic and the city have been unable since the enactment of the 1998 Legislation to negotiate the terms of a new long-term franchise allowing Bell Atlantic to use the streets, alleys, and other public places of the city; and

WHEREAS, the city council has determined that it is in the public interest to extend for an additional one-year period the franchise granted by Ordinance No. 2165 to Bell Atlantic, as the successor to the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company of Virginia, so to provide to staff of the city and Bell Atlantic additional time to negotiate a new long-term franchise; now, therefore
THE CITY COUNCIL OF ALEXANDRIA HEREBY ORDAINS:

Section 1. That, pursuant to Article VII, Section 9 of the Virginia Constitution and Article 1 of Chapter 21 of Title 15.2 of the Code of Virginia, Section 17 of Ordinance No. 2165, which defines the term of the franchise that the ordinance grants to the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company of Virginia and its successors and assigns, be, and the same hereby is, amended to set the term at 23 years, such that the franchise shall expire on April 30, 2000, unless sooner voluntarily surrendered by the franchisee with the consent of the city council, or unless sooner forfeited as provided by law.

Section 2. That Ordinance No. 2165, as amended by Section 1 of this ordinance, be, and the same hereby is, reordained.











Section 3. That this ordinance shall be effective upon the date and at the time of its final passage.

Section 2. That the authorization hereby granted to establish and maintain said encroachment shall be subject to and conditioned upon Owner maintaining, at all times and at its own expense, liability insurance, covering both bodily injury and property damage, with a company authorized to transact business in the Commonwealth of Virginia and with minimum limits as follows:

Evidence of the policy and any renewal thereof shall be filed with the city attorney's office. Any other provision herein to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event this policy of insurance lapses, is canceled, is not renewed or otherwise ceases to be in force and effect, the authorization herein granted to establish and maintain the encroachment shall, at the option of the city, forthwith and without notice or demand by the city, terminate. In that event, Owner shall, upon notice from the city, remove the encroachment from the public right-of-way, or the city, at its option, may remove the encroachment at the expense and risk of Owner.
