Morning Notes - Winter

Not All Reston Town Center Eateries Will Validate Parking — Reston Patch recently polled many of the restaurants in Reston Town Center about whether they plan to validate customers’ tickets once paid parking launches Jan. 3. Out of 32 restaurants that responded, only 16 said they had plans to validate, while 12 said they would not, and 4 said they were still unsure about their policy in 2017. [Reston Patch]

Fairfax County Official Looks to Save More Trees  — Although it appears a developer followed the letter of the law, a member of the Fairfax Tree Commission is unhappy with the number of trees that were cut down to make way for a new development in Great Falls recently. Commission chairman Robert Vickers suggested the county’s law needs an overhaul to protect more local trees from development. [InsideNoVA]

Close Out 2016 With Some New Year’s Eve Golf — Herndon Centennial Golf Course (909 Ferndale Ave.) is set to host a New Year’s Eve Golf Scramble on Dec. 31. Start the morning off with a champagne breakfast followed by a tournament. The $60 registration fee covers green fees, cart fees, range balls and the chance to win prizes. [Town of Herndon]

    It doesn’t mater to me, RTC restauranteurs, whether or not you validate parking. I’m still boycotting RTC until BP drops their ridiculous paid parking policy.

      And by not frequenting those restaurants, you won’t be paying the meals that didn’t pass, so in effect you’ll be saving double the tax. That should just about cover half the rise in RE taxes you’re going to have to pay.
