A planning problem — As Fairfax County officials mull plans to increase Reston’s population density cap, a former member of the Fairfax County Planning Commission writes that Reston has a planning problem that must be addressed as new developments move forward. [The Washington Post]

Love says goodbye — Today is the last day that Virginia’s LOVE letters will be on display at Lake Anne Plaza. The display was installed on June 7.  [Lake Anne Plaza]

    The article states 4 items that need review
    Two of these are as a result of Hudgins policies
    She is on record as being for development without infrastructure in place
    She should be immediately recalled before she can do more damage

    • OneReally

      She is for development “without infrastructure” period! Just build and build.

      • Greg

        As long as there is at least 20 percent low-income housing.

        Shadowood for all!

            And Plumton

    More data centers in Loudon instead of office parks ?
    At least they wont generate additional traffic

    • Greg

      Those data centers generate tons of tax revenue, require very few government services, bring us cheap electricity, and leave the social ills of “workforce” housing to Reston.

  • I Miss Karen

    Any updates on the steps being rebuilt at Lake Anne Plaza, or the milling project on Wiehle? Or, is RN going to just continue copying and pasting articles and calling it journalism?

    • OneReally

      Watch your tongue! They’re not that kind of journalist.

      • 2 centavos

        According to the greener pastures principle you should see more and more Herndon articles.

        Karen couldnt hold a candle to this new bred journal.

  • Greg

    Oy, VY! We want, so badly, to straighten your Lincoln Logs aside your ghastly buildings every time we must endure seeing them.
