Fairfax County Budget & Real Estate Assessments Y2020
Employee pay, school funding and real estate assessments all increasing once again

Fairfax County Budget Y 2020The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors announced the County Executive’s proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2020 is based on a tax rate of $1.15 per $100 of assessed value.  Assessments in Annandale have averaged 2.77% both last year and this, which is on the high end.   Just five years ago the county real estate tax rate was $1.09 while each year assessed value jumps higher than the county average.  County wide 76% of all homeowners will see an increase, and quite certainly all of Annandale.  The end result is that elderly home owners on fixed income and low income individuals out are all but frozen out of this market.

The proposed General Fund budget has increased to $4.44 billion, up $161.74 million.   This sum does not include federal and state grants. The prime real estate markets in Fairfax are now spaces near the Silver Metro Line, which has helped position Tysons, Herndon, and Reston as the financial powerhouses within the county.  

Y2020 budget includes a general fund transfer to Fairfax County Public Schools of $2.35 billion as requested by the School Board.  This is 4.11% or $86.46 million, increase over the current FY 2019 school budget.  School Debt Service transfer increased by $4.60 million which assumes $180 million in School Bond sales and School Capital Construction at $13.1 million.  READ MORE

What's in a Name?
The Origins of the Street Name, John Marr Drive

Marr Incorporated Builders Developers, Annandale, VAAll too often when history is being reported, let alone printed, facts are assumed when no explanation for an event or experience can be documented.  What is the "most logical" is proposed to fill in the blank as is often done with gaps in family or community history.  After a time in the public lore, the assumption becomes fact in the minds of many. Years ago a very affable new resident went in search of Annandale history and had his conclusions printed in a local circular. Whenever facts did not emerge, assumptions were inserted.  Many ridiculous stories appeared and since they appeared in print, without any editorial fact checking, many readers took them to be gospel. Many erroneous stories have been told about the Annandale United Methodist Church during the Civil War.  The stories are bold and far more exciting than the truth.  None-the-less, they are fabricated stories.
(SEE:  www.annandalechamber.com/annandale_united_methodist_church.rhtml)

Another example is the origin of the street name, John Marr Drive in Annandale.  The "assumption" proposed and now often believed to be fact is that it was named for a John Quincy Marr who Wikipedia tells us," was a Virginia militia company captain and the first Confederate soldier killed by a Union soldier in combat during the American Civil War.  Marr was killed at the Battle of Fairfax Court House, Virginia on June 1, 1861.”  Marr grew up in Warrenton and is not reported to have come any closer to Annandale than Fairfax Courthouse.

Instead, it is possible that the road was named for a local resident whose company, Marr, Incorporated, was in the building, developing, and real estate business.  Let’s be clear, this is proposed as the origin of the name, not yet a confirmed fact.  READ MORE

Annandale REAL ESTATE: Brighter Days and Greater Opportunities for Annandale

VA Tech Campus Potomac Yards, conceptual rendering by VA TechAs everyone has heard, Amazon will move about 50% of its second headquarters operation to Crystal City.  The average salary of those Amazon employees is reported to be $150,000 per year, with the first 400 folks starting next year.

The estimated number of jobs created directly by Amazon is 25,000 with a total estimate of direct and indirect jobs created at 62,000.  Those are eye-popping numbers, but what do they mean for Annandale and its residents.

Although I’m certain that the highest paid employees at Amazon will likely opt for houses in Arlington or D.C., there are a high number of employees that will not pay the price tag necessary to locate that close to the new headquarters.  So what is the next, most logical spot for those people.

Well, they could choose the tony atmosphere of Old Town Alexandria, but given the cost of that housing it will still require a hefty salary or an inheritance from Aunt Mildred.  So, if you cross over 395 you wind up in Annandale country and that is where I expect plenty of Amazon employees to land in the next five years.

VIEW ON NATURE:  Nevermore

A group of ravens is known as an unkindness_ treachery or a conspiracyOf all the birds of Virginia, ravens are the most revered, mysterious, and interesting.  The northern raven is a large, pure-black bird standing 25 inches tall and weighing over 2.5 pounds with an impressive 4+ foot wingspan.  Ravens can live to 40 years in captivity and 21 years in the wild, which is a very long bird lifespan. Young birds may travel in flocks called a “conspiracy” or an “unkindness”, attributed to their stressful behavior in juvenile conglomerations until pairing off and mating for life.

Raven’s vocal repertoire is amazing - 33 different categories of vocalization!  I’m always amazed at their gurgling croaks, shrill and rasping calls, and rapid series of loud, un-birdlike wood knocking sounds that echo along the cliffs on Skyline Drive where ravens thrive. In captivity, they can be taught to speak like parrots which floored me when I heard one speak in a deep voice.  They are also amazing mimickers of other birds and animals and even manmade sounds such as engines, flushing toilets, musical instrument.

ENERGY SENSE

Value Your Power this Winter by Saving Energy at Home

Andy FarmerEach year, it seems as though winter comes to Virginia earlier than it did the year before. At the end of last year, several areas in the state received unexpected snow before Thanksgiving. In Richmond and other areas in the South, a heavy winter storm dropped a foot of snow well before the official start of winter on Dec. 21.

To stave off colder temperatures during inclement weather, many people tend to crank up their thermostats to their homes warm. Doing this may make your home more comfortable, but it also increases your energy use and can lead to higher electricity bills.

Not sure how to prepare your home for winter? Follow Virginia Energy Sense’s suggestions and tips listed below to curb unnecessary energy use during the winter:

Winter Energy Saving Tips

Programmable thermostats – You can save energy and keep your costs in check by keeping your thermostat at 68 degrees Fahrenheit while you are at home. A smart thermostat learns your behavior and it lets you control your home’s temperature from your smartphone.

Swap in LEDs – If you use traditional incandescent lightbulbs, you may want to reconsider. Switch them out for LEDs that will use up to 75% less energy and last several times longer!

Turn on your fans – Since hot air rises, run your ceiling fans in reverse to circulate it back to floor level.

Don’t block the heat – Clean warm-air registers, baseboard heaters, and radiators. Make sure they are not blocked by furniture, carpeting, or drapes.

Has Been Contributing Vital Programs and Services to the Annandale Community for 38 Years.

The new Smith-Kogod Cultural Arts Center  What’s Happening at the J?

Have you passed by Little River Turnpike at Guinea Road lately? If yes, perhaps you’ve seen the skeletal structure of the soon-to-be Smith-Kogod Cultural Arts Center at the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia (JCCNV, the J). The renovation of what was the original JCCNV building is just a small indication of the construction taking place to better serve the community. Every day, the J welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds to its Fairfax campus (8900 Little River Turnpike) and its satellite locations throughout Northern Virginia.

FITNESS & WELLNESS
Helping people feel their very best, the J offers group classes for people at all fitness levels throughout the week and has personal trainers on staff for those who prefer one-on-one workouts. Exercise classes offered include yoga, Pilates, cardio cycling, SUP Yoga (stand-up paddle board), FUNctional fitness, and more. In addition to its “land” classes, the J’s Aquatics Center offers year-round water aerobics and competitive swimming programs for all ages and abilities. Our heated, six-lane, 25-meter swimming pool has a graduated depth from 3.5’ to 8’ and includes a permanent access ramp for use by individuals in wheelchairs, small children, and others with special needs. Recent improvements include anti-
slip flooring and a new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system that greatly improved air quality on the pool deck. Additionally, the recently renovated men’s and women’s locker rooms now include wet and dry areas, private showers, saunas.

Watch in 2019 for a brand new 3,800+ square foot fitness center to open on the west end of the building. The new space will be more than....READ MORE


MEET THE ARTISAN:  Dan Burke

Professor Dan Burke in his workshopDan Burke came to woodworking after a career in academics and research.  He received a doctorate in microbiology from Purdue University and then spent over 20 years as a researcher and teacher in molecular biology at several universities (University of Illinois, Mercer University and Seton Hall University), serving as Chairman of Biology at the latter two institutions.  He then spent seven years working on educational reform in K-12 math and science at the National Science Foundation as Senior Staff Associate for Education System Reform. In this position, he worked with the Superintendents of the 25 largest urban school districts in the country and a number of consortia of high-poverty rural school districts.  After leaving NSF, Dan started the educational research group at the Center for Naval Analysis Corporation.  He retired from CNAC but went back to work at the request of New York University to serve as Director of the Doctoral Program in Computational Biology.

Dan has published a number of papers in biology research journals and articles on curriculum development, teacher professional development, and the use of computer modeling to better understand the function of school systems.  He has been awarded a number of grants in both molecular biology and education research.

His career as a woodworker began when he and his wife, Susan, moved to Annandale in 1996. They wanted a built-in bookcase for their new home so, at the suggestion of his wife, he took a basic woodworking course at the Woodworkers Club in Vienna. "It was fun, and showed me I could build the bookcase.  After building the bookcase (six months of work), he had leftover wood that was used to build a small bookcase.

Still having some "nice looking scraps” he tried his hand at making jewelry and keepsake boxes and found he really enjoyed building them.  Eventually all their family and friends had gift boxes and the house was filled with furniture he had built.  This forced him into a sort of “semi-professional” status.  “If I didn’t sell my work, I would have no place for it.”

New Zoning Adopted
for Small Scale Production

Small Scale ProductionPreviously, craft manufacturing was only allowed in industrial districts, except for craft breweries and distilleries. Now, these producers will be allowed in most commercial and mixed-use districts, from Annandale and Richmond Highway to Tysons and Reston.  The new rules define small-scale production broadly to include the entire manufacturing process from design to production to packaging.

The rules also allow these makers to offer retail sales, training and education.Small manufacturers would be limited in size to 6,000 to 10,000 square feet, depending on the zoning district where they’re located. However, most craft manufacturing businesses are less than 5,000 square feet.

The new regulations also include restrictions to ensure these small businesses are good neighbors, such as requiring production and storage to be inside to prevent noise or odor.

The zoning regulations also require these manufacturers in commercial or mixed-use districts to offer retail sales, tours, classes or other direct interaction with the public.  READ MORE

Smashing the Myth

ImmigrationThe Alexandria Workforce Development Center recently released New Americans in Alexandria, a report detailing the economic contributions and impact of immigrants in Alexandria. In addition to their financial contributions, the report details the role that the immigrant population plays in the local labor force as well as their contributions to the city's recent population growth.

The immigrant share of the Alexandria population in 2016 was 28%  while contributing $262.4 million in federal taxes and $102.2 million in state and local taxes, $150 million to Social Security and $39 million to Medicare. Time to just stop the talk about immigrants being given a free lunch.  In the city of Alexandria 12.3% of immigrants received Medicare or Medicaid, compared with 18.4% of US born residents.  Approximately 55.8% of immigrants had private healthcare coverage, while only 12.9%  had public healthcare coverage.

Several key industries in Alexandria provide jobs to immigrants.  In fact 62.2% of workers ...READ MORE

Snow Preparedness
VDOT requests that before a storm, residents put all cars in their driveway, leaving the street clear for plowing, especially on cul-de-sacs. 
If that is not possible, park on the odd number side of the street.

The Virginia Department of Transportation’s neighborhood-plowing website and plow-tracking program will again bJohn Marr Drive at Columbia Pikee among the tools the agency will use this winter in northern Virginia.

“We have seen a great success in the website so far,” said Branco Vlacich, VDOT’s maintenance engineer for northern Virginia, at the annual snow briefing. “Even in past year’s heavy snows we saw a drastic drop in customer service calls, and we think that is because drivers and residents can get instant answers to their questions with real-time visuals of road conditions and specific progress of our snow crews.”

EMERGENCY NUMBERS AND CONTACTS

Tips to Prevent Frozen Water Pipes

Call ServPro 703.237.8800When cold spells set in this winter, that spells potential trouble for your water pipes. During the height of a cold snap last winter, Fairfax Water reported hundreds of frozen meters.

Here are some steps you can take to avoid frozen pipes when colder weather fills the air this winter:

  1. Always know where your main water shut off valve is located.
  2. If you haven’t already, make sure the water line to outside faucets is turned off and the line is drained. Drain each outdoor spigot after turning off the valve to prevent any remaining water from freezing and bursting the pipes. Some spigots have anti-siphon devices that must be opened to properly drain the line.
  3. If your water pipes do freeze, never try to thaw a pipe with an open flame or torch. Always be careful of the potential for electric shock in and around standing water.
  4. If you will be away from your home, keep the thermostat at a reasonable temperature to make sure all areas with water pipes are kept above freezing.
  5. Eliminate drafts. Check around the home for areas where water supply lines are located in unheated areas and take measures to prevent the flow of cold air in these areas. Both hot and cold water pipes in these areas should be insulated. Insulation supplies are available at your local home improvement or hardware store. Want to find those drafts? Then borrow a thermal camera from a library!
  6. Whenever temperatures drop into the teens, it’s suggested you leave a thin, steady stream of water running. This stream should measure out to be about a quarter gallon of water per minute.

If you have questions or need assistance, contact Fairfax Water at 703-698-5800 during normal business hours or after-hours/emergency number 703-698-5613.
