Our 13-member Board of Directors consists of leaders in business, economic development, real estate, and the community at large. We strive to make Richmond Highway a place where people want to go to, as opposed to just travel through, and we believe in the great potential Richmond Highway has to offer the Northern Virginia area.

RSVP Northern Virginia would like to share this wonderful interview released today with Pam Michell, executive director of New Hope Housing Inc. We talked with Pam about the lack of affordable housing in Fairfax County and what New Hope is doing to address the problem. The podcast can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-sVrOADNjY Pam, who has been with New Hope for 27 years and is one of the most knowledgeable people in the area on the subject of affordable housing on the Route One Corridor, shares her insights on the complexity of the problem and how you, as an RSVP Northern Virginia volunteer, can play a big role in helping those who are struggling to get a roof over their heads transition to long term housing. To sign up to become an RSVP volunteer please call Carly on the RSVP Hotline at 703-403-5360 To see the complete library of RSVP Nova Podcasts, please visit our Youtube page at. https://www.youtube.com/results… #RSVPNOVA #affordablehousing #NEWHOPEHOUSING
Any possibility of a Chick Fil A coming to the Highway?????
I hope SFDC is paying attention to the NOVUS development proposal next to King's Crossing. County staff is at the moment to my understanding recommending a denial of the application over fair share contribution issues. There needs to be intervention and remediation between the county staff and NOVUS to work this out otherwise we are facing another failed attempt to bring a significant revitalization project that the surrounding communities want to see move forward. I moved to the Richmond Highway corridor in 1981 and have witnessed one iteration after another about moving forward on revitalizing the corridor. The same unsightly, run down strip shopping center at the top of Fairview Drive remains after 36 years of living in the Spring Bank and if the current proposed project fails, chances are that it will remain and JBG Companies, the current owners of the property, in my view will likely do a by right development of just another strip shopping center robbing the surrounding communities and Fairfax County of anything that remotely resembles revitalization. Fairfax County has been collecting fair share contributions from developers for decades but I've never seen a nickle of that money spent on Richmond Highway revitalization. The money has gone and continues to go to redevelopment in places like Tysons and Reston. It is almost as if the Richmond Highway corridor will be forever deprived of any substantive revitalization to which the citizens of this area feel we are equally entitled to. The unequal treatment of how revitalization is planned and implemented in Fairfax County is detrimental to our future economic and infrastructure needs for this part of Fairfax County. The NOVUS project couls be a key component for beginning the first real trend for revitalization on the Mount Vernon side of the north end of the Richmond Highway corridor. Elected officials and county staff need to work as hard with the NOVUS developers to make this project happen as they have with developers in Tysons and Reston. To let this proposal fail will only reinforce the long held belief by many residents that this end of Fairfax County does not get the attention it deserves from county officials.
