Fairfax County Decision-Makers Driving 'Public Lands for Public Good'


Hey, Yupette,

'Public Lands for Public Good' debate in Arlington? What a hoot! Who's driving 'Public Lands for Public Good'? Arlington's so-called 'decision makers' who live in beautiful suburban Fairfax County, of course! And not just Barbara Donnellan and hundreds of County and APS employees who work for her, but Fairfax County residents who belong to the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, Committee of 100, developers, planning consultants, lawyers, bankers, and many, many others who are packing as many people and vehicles into our tiny County as they can, with the help of Lexus Liberal New Urbanist Super Nimbys, like County Board Chairman Jay Fisette.

So what's going on where THEY live a few miles up Columbia Pike from Arlington? As you can see from the photo, life goes on, on Lake Barcroft, in Sleepy Hollow, and elsewhere off the Pike same as always.

Thanks for this blog.

Then there's the Media which is almost totally controlled by non-residents.

Anyone watch the Hallmark Channel last night? Christmas romance filmed in Portland Oregon with NO streetcars, NO bicycles, and everyone driving everywhere one per vehicle.

I had to laugh... a Christmas romance filmed outdoors in July 'cause average temp in Portland in December is about 45 degrees and total rainfall is more than 6 inches.

New Urbanists want YOU to live in a crowded urban mess. THEY get to live in classic suburbs that haven't changed in 50 years.

Ride a bicycle in Portland in November, December, January and February? Daytime high temp reaches 50 and rainfall averages about 5 inches per month.

How many millions has Arlington spent so 2,000 residents can ride bicycles to work in summer and 200 can ride bicycles to work in winter?

So those of us who are over 55 and HATE bicycles have our tax dollars used to tell us to ride bicycles in winter?

FIRE the Looney Tunes Non-Resident "New Urbanists" starting with Barbara Donnellan.

I have lower back pain from years of hard physical labor working on construction jobs. No way I'm going to ride a bicycle.

For what's already been spent on making everyone ride bicycles in Arlington 24/7/365 we could have ART bus service in all neighborhoods.

Let non-residents who want Arlington to be just like Portland --- go live in Portland.

Portland has 48 degree average daytime high temps PLUS a total of 30 inches of rain (not counting sleet and snow) between November 1st and April 1st.

We're not supposed to ride bicycles 24/7/365, we're supposed to ride $3,000 bicycles 24/7/365.

Thanks for this blog. Yes, I would like to take an ART bus from near my home to the supermarket, buy $50 worth of groceries, and then have the ART bus driver drop me off in front of my home. I would consider selling my 5-year old Prius if ART could provide such a service.

Yes, please redevelop this pasture in Sleepy Hollow for affordable housing...why does every park and nature center in Arlington have to be re-developed for affordable housing by Fairfax County residents who live in Sleep Hollow?

County Government can't do that Linda. It's too rational, responsible, and common-sense for them to handle.

I think Barbara Donnellan will retire next year. Too many poor decisions, too much bad planning.

Keep Sleepy Hollow Sleepy !! Pack all the urban hipsters and their low-wage servants, dogs, bicycles, pub crawls, etc. into Arlington County !!

Time for the Lexus Liberals and County Club Republicans to do their share --- redevelop the Washington Golf and Country Club into affordable housing.

I am sick and tired of County Staff telling us we have to ride bicycles in the winter.
