      The Reston Association noted, “A quorum of households voted for this stupidly expensive, totally cost-ineffective idea because we convinced them it was good for the environment, or something, so it’s a done deal now, suckers, bwahahaha!”

    This is just in time. The traffic on Sunset Hills is getting far too light. I know someone who works in East Herndon and lives in East Reston. Evening commute can take an hour. This will surely help!

    260 residences, eh? That translates into another 400-500 cars registered in 20190.

      lol. You think Millenials drive. That’s cute.

    Workers at the Sunrise Valley convenience center lease space in the parking lot that will be developed. This is done because there is a shortage of parking space in their parking lot across Sunrise Valley Drive. This should make the businesses in the convenience center face a loss of revenue, The dental office may lose patients because of the lack of parking. There is no other parking nearby.

    Right on top of the metro and a quick bike ride from Reston Town Center? These homes sound great. Maybe I’ll move there once the whiny jerks on this blog finally give up and take their precious cars far far away from here.
