Last Thursday evening, I had the opportunity to meet with the Brentsville District Supervisor, Wally Covington. Fortunately, we have done much needed work to our roads in the area over the past 2 years. Unfortunately, Mr. Covington expressed concerns about future budget cuts coming from the Governor’s office in the future.
We spoke about future projects coming to our area. I know this information is very valuable to my clients who are looking to the future for investments. I also get calls about future schools to deal with overcrowding issues. I have also included information on potential projects that will greatly effect our area.
The Arts Center that is under construction across from George Mason is under construction. George Mason is also in the process of acquiring more land to expand the Freedom and Aquatic Center. They are also very interested in putting in student housing in the coming years, and this is only the begining. The road network in this area is going to work well with businesses, the college campus and the community. Mr. Covington expressed that the future development of this area is slated to be modeled after the communities you would see in Blacksburg or Charlottesville.
Here is some more information that you might find useful:
*A new high school is being planned on Kettle Run. (Projected to open in 2011)
*The movie theatre and other high-end restaurants are in the process of going up at Wellington and Linton Hall. The movie theatre has been delayed due to the fact that it was bought out by another company.
*The construction on Linton Hall and 28 should be completed by the end of the year.
*The New Wegman’s grocery store, on 29, is scheduled to open in November.
*A Fire Station is being planned to be built close to the Freedom and Aquatic Center.
*The REAL work on 29 and 66 is scheduled to begin on 2010.
