Bulova Stresses Multi-Use Developments in State of the County Video

bulova-tysonsFairfax County Board of Supervisors Chair Sharon Bulova did away with the traditional State of the County address this year, instead producing an 18-minute video to provide a more compelling report on the county’s progress.

In the video, Bulova touts the county’s efforts to encourage mixed-use development projects to provide denser, transit-friendly neighborhoods where residents can live and work without having to jump into their car several times a day.

The video highlights development in Tysons, which Bulova notes is the 12th-largest business district in the nation. Construction of the Metro Silver Line through Tysons and on to Reston is expected to be completed near the end of the year and the county has been pulling out all the stops to encourage redevelopment in the area.
