EFC Metro Station Development - Another Zimmerman Dumb Growth Mess

Hi Yupette,

Plans for the East Falls Church metro Station Development are now on the County's Web Site and it's a classic Chris Zimmerman "Guru of Gridlock" Dumb Growth mess. But that's what we get for re-electing Chris Zimmerman and allowing him to pack planning committees with his hand picked Dumb Growth dummies.

EFC got "Clarendoned" in a major league way.

Dump Zimmerman. The only 'vision' he's ever had or will ever have for Arlington is packing orange brick box buildings with 300 parking spaces under every building in every highway corridor and Metro corridor of Arlington.

Dump the Falls Church News Press and Arlington Sun Gazette while you're at it and bring in a couple new newspapers whose publishers and editors aren't complete flunkies for the developers and local chamber of commerce.

If they are going to model their "Smart Growth" on Pasadena California they should move to Pasadena California. Starting with Zimmerman.

Speaking of "Smart Growth" no one who is involved with "Smart Growth" will answer the following question: "What happens when 85,000 commuters from Tysons and Dulles arrive at the EFC Metro Station at 8 AM weekdays?"

Zimmerman was so shaken by being called the "Guru of Gridlock" by an activist that he had to retire into the CB break room to be revived by Tejada.

County Board hasn't taken so much s*** from activists since the Stadium brawl 5 years ago.

"Dumb Growth Mess" is exactly right. That's how it played out tonight with the neighborhood.

Yep, and does Condo
Chris walk the talk? Are you kidding? Right across the street from his single-family home is a specially reserved, activity and recreation free chunk of County parkland, preserved to serve Chris in perpetuity.

Gotta wonder how happy the chipper, hipster Clarendonites will react when the Christer's 85,000 Silver Line lemmings transfer to and fill up inbound Orange Line trains that bypass the Ballston, Virginia Square, Clarendon and Courthouse stops. Wait, I betcha he'll arrange a bike exchange program; Chrissy pooh's vision will move further West and we'll emulate Beijing.

Leave our EFC Neighborhood ALONE. Move your polluting, traffic congesting, middle-class neighborhood destroying dumb growth to Springfield, Dale City, Fairfax City, and elsewhere outside the Beltway. Arlington has suffered enough.

Jim Hursyz asked Zimmerman point blank about the 85,000 commuters who will arrive at EFC from Tysons and Dulles at 8 AM weekdays. Zimmerman could not and would not answer.

Zimmerscam also fortified his neighborhood with every conceivable "traffic calming" device to keep the Pike traffic generated by his form based charade out of his upscale enclave.

Yupette, how about a thread regarding mega dumb growth approved for Alexandria Potomac Yards?

Notice that Chamber of Commerce Realtor Scott McCaffrey is siding with the dumb growth developers and realtors. What an a$$hole.

Where were the Republican and Green candidates for County Board last night?

They were with their children at H.B. Woodlawn cheering the Frisbee team.

Oh dear, fireworks. And that dreadful man calling our sweet Mr. Zimmerman the "guru of gridlock." I am almost tempted to dispatch Mittens to micturate on his foot. But alas the state of traffic in lovely Barcroft won't permit Mittens to venture across the street. No fault of our eudemonic County Board Chairman and his peripatetic staff. No, the traffic can simply be ascribed to the monodomous nature of our dear and endearing civic culture.

Did you see the reporting in the Falls Church News Press about Tuesday's County Board EFC charade? Scott McCaffrey isn't the only media shill for the realtors, developers, and chamber of commerce.

Eudemonic. That means goofy, right?
