    I ask all RestonNow readers to take the time to read and sign the Reston 20/20 petition to block another added tax on Reston intended to improve roads in the station areas. While both the developers and County will rake in huge bucks from the development in these areas, residents will earn not a cent but still have to pay an added tax.

    And, from a broader Reston perspective, the County’s specific intent is to make traffic congestion WORSE on all the Dulles Corridor roadways, including through streets like Reston Parkway and Wiehle.

    Why should any Restonians pay more for worse transportation service?

    Thanks for your support.

      It’s almost like they have taken a bet to see how much they can get away with.

    The developers should have to pay for the building and the roads, not the people who were living here before the developers got greedy.
