Thursday Morning Rundown

Sidewalk in Reston

New Land For Park Authority — The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has transferred 11.7 acres of land near Dulles Station Boulevard to the Fairfax County Park Authority. The property in Herndon will be known as Dulles Rock Hill Park.  A community park will be established through a developer proffer agreement in the near future. The park facilities were proffered as part of a nearby rezoning case for a 411-unit multifamily project that could not accommodate on-site recreational facilities. The applicant has agreed to spend $1.5 million to create a park on the property and maintain it in perpetuity.

Kudos To Scholars — Several local high school seniors have been named National Merit Semifinalists. Isabel Garvey, Allison Johnson, and Sahana Thirumazhusai of South Lakes High School and Robert Moore and Charlie Shen from Herndon High School are among the 205 Fairfax County Public Schools students named to the prestigious list.

Waiting List For FCPS Renovations — Of Fairfax County’s 196 schools, 63 sit on an ordered list of schools waiting for upgrades. One reason the line moves slowly is lack of funding. [Fairfax Times]

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy.
