Plans Aired to Address Roadway Congestion

LEADING COUGARS INTO A NEW ERA

BRIAN TROMPETER Staff Writer

State and local officials are working on a slew of initiatives to reduce a key source of aggravation for Northern Virginians: traffic congestion. Officials briefed local residents about those plans May 9 in McLean High School’s cafeteria. VDOT, Maryland Seeking to Relieve American Legion Bridge Backups: Supervisor John Foust (D-Dranesville) called it “wonderful news” that the Maryland state government was “aggressively” beginning to study the possibility of adding capacity on Interstates 495 and 270, which would help relieve congestion in Northern Virginia. “You know as well as I do where the traffic is coming from,” he told local residents at the meeting. “It’s coming from Maryland and it’s backing up all the way from 270 down and across the American Legion Bridge.” Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) wants construction for such improvements started by 2020, but Foust said that timetable likely is unrealistic. The Commonwealth Transportation Board has authorized a $6 million environmental study for the possible extension of I-495 Express Lanes along 3 miles Continued on Page 21

Renovation, Expansion Is on Track for Completion BRIAN TROMPETER Staff Writer

Bolstered by a long spate of clear weather, construction on the McLean Community Center’s expansion and renovation is only slightly behind schedule and still below budget, center officials said. Center leaders, accompanied by Fairfax County elected officials and local civic activists, broke ground last March for the $5 million project.

Vienna Council Adopts FY19 Idiopathic Pulmonary Budget, Keeps Tax Rate Level Fibrosis (IPF), a BRIAN TROMPETER Staff Writer

Vienna Town Council members on May 7 unanimously adopted a $38.65 million fiscal year 2019 budget that will hold the town’s real-estate tax rate steady for the fourth straight year. The new budget, which will take effect July 1 when the new fiscal year starts, is 4.7 percent higher than the one adopted last year. The Council concurred with Town Manager Mercury Payton’s recommendation to keep the real-estate tax rate at 22.5 cents per $100 assessed valuation. Most residential property owners will pay more because assessments rose an average of 4.5 percent. In addition, Vienna property owners pay Fairfax County’s real-estate tax, which the Board of Supervisors this spring raised by 2 cents to $1.155 per $100 valuation. Most town employees will receive 3.5percent salary increases and those whose work performance at minimum exceeds expectations also may benefit from a onetime, two-tiered bonus program. Twenty-seven police positions lower than the rank of sergeant will get 5-percent salary hikes in an effort to keep the town’s police department competitive

with those in surrounding jurisdictions. The new budget also will contribute funds to cover an 18-percent increase in employees’ health-insurance costs. The town’s water rates will rise 3.5 percent, sewer rates will increase 10 percent and related service charges will go up 10 to 15 percent. Those increases, recommended by a recent study, are aimed at helping the town cover costs, debt service and infrastructure investments for those services, officials said. Residential water customers on average will see $13.61 increases in their quarterly bills, said Town Manager Mercury Payton. The fiscal 2019 budge will pay for three new full-time employees – a transportation planner/engineer and two maintenance workers – plus a part-time assistant in the Water and Sewer Division. The budget also will finance a biennial survey of town residents, $20,000 worth of park improvements and a comprehensive update of Vienna’s zoning code, which has not been revamped substantially since 1969. Nearly $25.5 million in the new budget will go to the general fund, about $8.6 million to the Water and Sewer Fund, $4.2 million for debt service and $364,000 to the Stormwater Fund.

New Garden Provides Students Insights on Science BRIAN TROMPETER Staff Writer

The paths were muddy and the plants had just begun to sprout, but Green Hedges School students eagerly swarmed over a new Science & Native Garden following an April 27 dedication ceremony. The 5,600-square-foot garden, which features about 600 flowers and plants that are native to Virginia, is designed to enhance the Vienna private school’s biology and ecology programs, said Head of School Robert Gregg. The garden was built on the site of a former house on Green Hedges’ property and has a two-space parking area in front that is used by maintenance crews. In addition to plants and flowers, the garden features meandering pathways, a water feature surrounded by colorfully painted rocks and a gathering area with logs and stumps, where students and teachers can relax and reflect on their surroundings. The ceremony was the culmination of two years’ worth of efforts, which included fund-raising at a special “raise the paddle” initiative during the school’s 2016 gala auction, Gregg said. Ever since the school’s founding at the Arlington home of Frances and Kenton Kilmer in 1942, “it remains fitting that Green Hedges’ program be one where all learning is interconnected, where all facets of the brain are engaged and where there is an appreciation for the aesthetic,” he told the crowd. The school, which moved to its current location at 415 Windover Ave., N.W., in Vienna in 1955, held 75th-anniversary celebrations at the start of its 2016-17 school

year. Green Hedges serves students in prekindergarten through eighth grade. The garden dedication featured recitations of the Pledge of Allegiance and Green Hedges’ creed, a performance of “Inch by Inch” (aka “Garden Song”) by the school’s first- and second-graders, and the singing of school song “My Master Hath a Garden,” with keyboard accompaniment by student Ryane Jones. Eighth-grader Richie Kallas, wielding oversized scissors brought by Vienna Mayor Laurie DiRocco, cut the ceremonial green ribbon that was strung between

two trees. Students Kayla Schulenberg, Matthew Giuntini and Sofie Levine thanked math teacher Matthew Fisher for his efforts at bringing the garden to fruition and involving all the students in the project. The trio gave Fisher a toy tractor, a hat to shade his head from the sun and a gift envelope. Gregg also gave a gift basket to Marlise Green, whose seventh-grade daughter attends the school, for helping design the garden. Green, co-owner of Landscape Management Group in Arlington, produced a computer-aided-design sche-

matic of the garden, showing the various flower and plant groupings in a rainbow of colors. The new garden aligns well with Green Hedges’ strategic plan, which aims to give children and teachers the best possible tools and most nurturing environment, said Gharun Hester, chairman of the school’s Buildings and Grounds Committee. “Today, Green Hedges has reached another very proud and successful moment in its history and is poised for only greater moments in the future,” Hester said.

Oakton Principal Aims to Keep School Moving Forward BRIAN TROMPETER Staff Writer

Before becoming Oakton High School’s new principal, Jamie Lane visited one of the school’s Exhibitions of Learning events and came away awed. One student told Lane about her passion for makeup, another discussed nuclear fusion and a third expounded on songwriting. Afterward, the school’s teachers talked about innovative educational techniques they had tried. “It’s been fabulous,” said Lane, who took over her new duties April 16. “I was excited to finally get in and get started.” Lane succeeded 13-year Oakton High principal John Banbury, who had been promoted to executive principal for Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) Region 1 and now is serving as interim principal at Lake Braddock Secondary School. Two years ago, when Lane was an assistant principal at McLean High School, she decided she wanted to become a principal and observed as her boss, principal Ellen Reilly, made decisions. Reilly encouraged her to take risks and provided 4

honest feedback. “I’m very fortunate to have had a series of mentors who believed how important it is to develop the people around you,” she said. “I’ve learned a very deep sense of reflection and I hope never lose that . . . You always have to be reflecting on how you can get better and improve.” One key lesson from her mentors: Always listen to and learn from students, staff and parents. Lane now is getting a sense of those groups’ visions for Oakton High, in preparation for developing a fiveyear plan. “It has to be everyone’s vision together, not just me,” she said. “I’m the big-picture to put it together and keep us moving in that direction.” Oakton High, with 2,700 students and 200 staff members, is larger than McLean High and offers myriad opportunities for students to explore their individual ideas and passions, she said. Oakton High is preparing for major renovations that will extend the front of the building; eliminate the current street in front of the entrance; and add a new main office, library, media center, science

wing and collaborative spaces. The fouryear project is scheduled to conclude in 2022. “We already have Cougartown of trailers,” she said. “It’s going to be a really beautiful facility, when all is said and done.” When hiring educators, Lane looks for those who have a passion for teaching and keep the focus on student learning. You can teach them the logistics of how to run a classroom, but you can’t teach them to be passionate about what they’re doing and how to relate to students,” she said. A former cheerleading coach, Lane grew up in Somerset County, N.J., is the mother of two girls. In her free time, she enjoys running and family time. Lane’s mother is a special-education teacher and her father a professor at Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa. Lane holds a bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Pennsylvania State University and a master’s in educational leadership from George Mason University. She began her FCPS career 12 years

ago as a social-studies teacher at Westfield High School in Chantilly. As an assistant principal at McLean High, she supervised the special-education, science, social-studies and fine-arts departments and helped improve teaching strategies, which led to yearly increases in Advanced Placement scores, school officials said. She also improved McLean High’s teacher-mentoring program, implemented better financial guidelines and procedures for the performing-arts program, and enhanced student engagement via a project-based-learning committee, school leaders said. Lane built community at the McLean High departments she oversaw and took over the school’s mentorship program, where she infused excitement into student-government leaders, Reilly said. “She taught them through a curriculum about the qualities true leaders have and empowered them to explore their own strengths,” Reilly said. “This allowed the student executives to become the decision-makers and make an impact in a student-led program.”

Our View: Be Aware of Social-Media Targeting Back in the day – 65 and 70 years ago – when television was first making its appearance in communities across the nation, a curious phenomenon transpired. A local advertiser – say, a pizza palace – would buy ad time asking the public to come on down and grab a slice. Hundreds of people would then get up from their living rooms and, almost robotically, drive to the restaurant, en masse. Why? Because their new television told them to. We think we’ve evolved a tad, become a bit more savvy, more discerning, when it comes to advertising of all sorts. But the facts suggest otherwise. Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives last week released more than 3,500 Facebook and Instagram ads purportedly devised by Russians to try and influence voter behavior in the 2016 presidential election, in particular attempting to undermine Hillary Clinton both in the Democratic nomination process and general election. What’s interesting about this crop of advertising is how targeted it was – using social-media metrics, it was pos-

sible to tailor an ad to an individual’s particular bias. A right-winger angry with immigration policy? There was an ad for that. A Bernie Sanders supporter eager to push the Clintons off the political stage? There was an ad for that, too. The effort was so micro-targeted that it even included Virginia-specific issues. Nearly 13,000 Virginia residents saw, and about 400 clicked on, an ad aimed at those who contend support for Confederate heritage does not equate to hate. That ad cost $105 (paid to Facebook in Russian rubles) to place, according to reporting in the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Guess not much has changed since those ads in the early days of television. The herd mentality remains. Advertising in general is a positive thing. But an old adage of politics – “trust, but verify” – is something to keep in mind. Now more than ever. Or, as was said in the journalism profession before the days of fact-checking went out the window, “If your mother says she loves you, check it out” before believing it.

There Are Ways to Even the Playing Field at TJ Editor: Like the classes before it, the prestigious Thomas Jefferson High School for Science & Technology Class of 2022 will have very few black and Hispanic students, and only one percent of students will be low-income. In a February editorial, the Sun Gazette asked whether there might be a way to reduce the racial and economic disparities in TJ admissions without altering admissions standards or implementing quotas or lotteries. The only way to increase the number of underrepresented students at TJ is to do for them what the parents of admitted students do for their children: • Place all bright children in advanced academic programs; • Understand the advantages of a TJ education and plan a long-term admissions strategy;

• Provide children with intensive, quality extracurricular math instruction, so that they excel in classes and are ready for the next level, beginning as early as possible; and • Obtain test preparation and tips for navigating the TJ admissions process. Fairfax County Public Schools has made great strides in ensuring that underrepresented bright students are placed in advanced programs, and while both FCPS and private-outreach initiatives have provided admissions information and short-term test-prep, no program has provided the kind of quality math enrichment that the students admitted to TJ receive. It’s important to continue to ensure that the public schools serve all students, but it’s equally important to realize that no matter how much time, effort and money we pour into our schools, it

is unlikely to make a significant difference in closing the gap between highachieving white and Asian students on the one hand and high-achieving black, Hispanic and low-income students on the other. To close the “excellence gap,” we must acknowledge how it is that some students, particularly the children of Asian immigrants, achieve at such a high level: hours of extra-curricular work, much of it led by highly qualified and knowledgeable instructors. To close the excellence gap, we must find a way to provide the same level of quality enrichment to the students who need it most. Hilde Kahn McLean The writer, a parent of three TJ graduates, is the author of “Closing the Excellence Gap.”

Editor: There aren’t many D.C.-area job descriptions like this: “Corral chickens, slop pigs, feed family with hearth cookery, extensive gardening, child supervision, textile creation and repair, interaction with the public and substantial knowledge of life for an 18th-century tenant farm family in Virginia.” As a kid in Falls Church, I had few of those skills. That’s why my time as a volunteer “farm child” and, later, a substitute “farm wife” at Claude Moore Colonial Farm at Turkey Run remains

precious. Turkey Run, as we called it, prepared me for life in a way that nothing else could. According to recent reports, the National Park Service and Friends of the Claude Moore Colonial Farm, which runs the park, have been unable to come to terms on a new agreement. One has to wonder what’s behind this. Is the closure of a largely self-sufficient park near D.C. beneficial to the National Park Service’s reputation? Is there some new plan in place to develop the area? Will someone make a big one-time profit by selling off

parkland to extend suburbia? I no longer live in Northern Virginia. I can’t adequately lobby Virginia politicians or National Park Service officials. However, I carry the experiential wealth of learning that this park offered volunteers and tourists every day. It’s would be short-sighted indeed to close this McLean institution.

Closure of Claude Moore Would Be Major Loss

Details Emerging on Proposal for Southside Park BRIAN TROMPETER Staff Writer

Vienna Little League leaders are refining and pressing forward with their plans to convert Southside Park’s Field 2, an unlighted softball diamond, into a pair of smaller, lighted diamond fields. Board member Aaron Georgelas, who first brought the proposal to the Vienna Town Council last August, provided additional information at a May 14 work session. Besides the two new fields, which would place outfield fences the regulation 200 feet from home plate, improvements would include a small, square field for several sports; dugouts and light-emitting-diode (LED) lighting; modern stormwatermanagement methods; a backstop with canopy; batting cage; and safety netting for spectators. If the Town Council eventually approves the plans, league officials hope to start construction next January and finish in time for opening day that spring. Vienna Little League was established in 1952 and now has 92 teams on which more than 1,000 boys and girls from ages 4 through 12 participate. The league’s boundary was expanded by 3 square miles this year and those extra players, combined with a 10-percent spike in registration for ages 4 through 6 and greater player-retention rates, mean the demand

for fields is going up. “Our concern is very basic: We’re running out of fields,” Georgelas said. In addition to Vienna Little League, Southside Park’s users include Golden Girls Senior Women’s Softball Organization, Greater Vienna Babe Ruth, Vienna Girls’ Softball League and Vienna Youth Inc. Little League leaders met with those groups last November and held a separate meeting with the Vienna Girls’ Softball League on April 3. League officials also held an on-site meeting with the park’s neighbors on April 25. Traffic volume is a concern in those neighborhoods, so town officials are promising increased police enforcement on Ross Drive. Residents also could petition the town for traffic-calming measures, which would have to be reviewed by the Vienna Transportation Safety Commission and approved by the Town Council. The park’s hours of operation, which would not change if the new fields were approved, are weekdays from 5 to 10:30 p.m. and weekends from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. The site is open for public use when games are not scheduled. Southside Park now has 47 parking spaces and would have 48 under the new design. In addition, 20 approved spaces that never were built during a 1996 renovation could be constructed, for a total of 68.

Ball fields usually require six lighting poles apiece, but because the Southside fields would be located side-by-side, it’s possible only 10 light standards would be necessary, Herman said. While construction of the new fields would require the removal of some trees, Little League leaders touted the benefits of improved stormwater-management methods that would be implemented. League officials also will evaluate whether to install grass or synthetic turf on the new fields. Using synthetic turf would reduce the amount of water needed for irrigation and

eliminate the use of fertilizers and pesticides, plus emissions from lawn-mowing equipment, they said. The artificial-turf fields would need to be replaced about every 10 to 12 years, at a cost of several hundred thousand dollars. (Fields used for football and soccer receive greater wear and must be replaced several years earlier, they said.) League officials now will refine plans for their Southside Park field proposals. “We’re flexible,” Georgelas said. “We want it to be a beautiful addition to the park.”

Public-Safety Notes STUDENT ARRESTED FOR ASSAULT AFTER ALLEGEDLY KICKING PRINCIPAL: Vienna police officers responded

May 7 at 10:21 a.m. to a report that two juvenile students were walking away from Cedar Lane School, 101 Cedar Lane, S.W. Police located the students and transported them back to the school. One of the students complied with the school’s staff, but the other student became belligerent and her grandmother was notified to come pick her up, police said. The juvenile then became uncooperative and disorderly, refusing to leave with her grandmother, police said. During the incident, the juvenile allegedly kicked the principal, police said. Police arrested the girl on charges of assault and transported her to the Fairfax County Juvenile Intake, where she was released to the custody of her grandmother.

ELDERLY VIENNA RESIDENT PLUCKED FROM HOME DURING KITCHEN FIRE:

A Vienna police officer, who was the first emergency responder to arrive at a reported house fire in the 300 block of Plum Street, S.W., on May 5 at 1:04 a.m., worked with a neighboring resident to remove an elderly resident from the home. The neighbor told the responding officer that he had been attempting to get the house’s elderly resident out. The officer and the neighbor observed the resident, entered the home and brought him

outside safely. The two then re-entered the home to ensure no other people were still inside. Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel arrived at the scene and also searched and cleared the house. Authorities determined that food on the stove caused the fire, which did not structurally damage the home. Rescue personnel evaluated the resident and neighbor at the scene, but they did not require further medical assistance.

A motorist fled her vehicle following an accident May 3 at 133 Maple Ave., E., but did not secure the vehicle first, causing it to hit another car, Vienna police said. The incident occurred at 4:09 p.m. when a driver was attempting to make a left turn onto Maple Avenue from private property. The motorist was unable to see a second vehicle approaching in the left lane, due to traffic stopped in the right lane. As the turning vehicle entered the roadway, it was struck by the second vehicle, police said. The second vehicle’s airbags deployed, causing that driver to believe her vehicle was on fire, police said. The struck vehicle’s driver, who showed visible signs of non-life-threatening injuries, exited her vehicle without putting it in park, causing it to drift across the roadway and strike a

third vehicle, causing minor damage, police said. Police did not issue tickets in either accident, authorities said. BIRD’S NEST ON TOP OF OUTDOOR LIGHTING FIXTURE SPARKS FIRE IN VIENNA AREA: The Fairfax County Fire

and Rescue Department on May 4 at 9:41 p.m. dispatched units to a reported house fire in the 1600 block of Trap Road in the Vienna area. Responding units found fire showing from the rear of the two-story, single-family home. Units quickly extinguished the blaze and no civilian or firefighter injuries were reported. Two adults were home at the time of the fire. While investigating an odor of smoke and sounds of popping and cracking, the occupants discovered the fire on the exterior of the home. The home had working smoke alarms, but the occupants discovered the fire before they sounded, officials said. Fire investigators determined the fire was accidental in nature and started on an exterior light fixture in the back of the house. Radiant heat from a halogen bulb in a light fixture ignited a bird’s nest on top of the light, officials said. The fire displaced two occupants, who declined assistance offered by the Red Cross. The fire caused about $70,000 worth of damage, officials said.

VIENNA POLICE INVESTIGATE AFTER UTILITY WORKER IS SEEN EXITING HOME: A woman residing in the 400

block of Marshall Road, S.W., returned home May 2 at 12:19 p.m. to find that the rear door to her home was not completely shut, Vienna police said. While reviewing her security system, she observed a UtiliQuest employee walking around the house, then exiting the rear door. Vienna police located the employee, who said he was at the house to mark utilities when he thought he heard a noise and smelled gas coming from the home. The employee said he had found an unsecured window, checked the home for issues and left after finding no problem. Vienna police continue to investigate this case. DRIVER SUFFERS MEDICAL EMERGENCY, DRIVES INTO SIDE OF CREDIT UNION: A motorist was attempting to

park in the parking lot at Navy Federal Credit Union, 820 Follin Lane, S.E, on May 5 at 12:55 p.m. when he suffered a medical emergency, Vienna police said. The medical crisis caused the man to drive off the lot, through some bushes and into a metal fence, a fixed light post and the side of the building, police said. MONEY, PROPERTY TAKEN FROM BIRD SHOP IN McLEAN: Between May 5

‘18 NVCC Grads Saluted for Surmounting Hurdles SCOTT McCAFFREY Staff Writer

Newly minted graduates of the commonwealth’s largest institution of higher education were sent to the next phase of their lives better GRADS for the experience, 2018 speakers said. “You leave with a confidence that will fortify you. You leave us with both self-confidence and aspirations. Your impact on our region and the world can be greater than you ever imagine,” Northern Virginia Community College president Scott Ralls said at the college’s 52nd annual commencement, held May 12 at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow. “These past few years . . . will launch you,” added Brenda Medrano-Frias, the student representative to the college’s board, who is headed to Georgetown University to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Medrano-Frias said she was “directionless and lost” when she first began classes at NVCC, but benefited from personalized attention and flexibility at the college. “Think about the people who helped to guide you,” she told fellow graduates.

“I always found myself surrounded by true mentors and role models.” “Each of you in your own way is a bright new star. Don’t forget us,” said Todd Rowley, who both chairs the college’s board and is working toward a midcareer degree (in cybersecurity) himself, expecting to complete his studies in two semesters. Delivering the commencement address was Del. Elizabeth Guzman (D-Prince William), a native of Peru who earned an associate degree in office management at NVCC in 2003 before going to earn undergraduate and graduate degrees from Capella University, American University and the University of Southern California. “It brings back memories,” Guzman, who became a U.S. citizen in 2005, said as she surveyed the students awaiting their diplomas on a toasty Saturday afternoon. “What a great school.” Guzman told the graduates, whose origins span the globe, that the U.S. needs to remain a welcoming place to all who want to pursue their dreams. “Immigrants help to build the thriving economy of this country,” she said. “I want to protect the American Dream

for my children and your children and our grandchildren.” Each year, more than 7,200 students are eligible to participants in commencement exercises, having completed requirements for degree and certificate programs. Among the crop of 2018 graduates were the husband-and-wife duo of James and Elizabeth Williams. Set to celebrate their first wedding anniversary in June, they returned to school at ages 31 and 26, respectively. Despite initial trepidation, the experience was a positive – and even fun – one, James Williams said. “We always kept each other on track and held one another accountable for completing assignments and not missing

classes,” he said in a university release. “We became a constant source of encouragement for each other.” “I’ve turned into a completely different person,” Elizabeth Williams said of the end result. At the ceremony, Elizabeth Williams graduated magnum cum laude with a degree in business administration and James Williams cum laude with a degree in general studies and certificate in construction supervision. Both are moving on to George Mason University. Theirs is the type of story NVCC administrators, educators, alumni and new graduates like to shout from the rooftops. “Always remember you started here. And be proud,” Medrano-Frias said.

Real Estate Featured Property of the Week

A Vienna Equestrian Showplace

The Allure of Hunt Country Is Found in a Close-In Locale

When opining on a home, we choose our superlatives with care. Every home selected for inclusion here is far above average, our policy is to never over-sell a home’s charms with hyperbole. With this week’s featured property, there is little chance of that. Set on nearly 8.5 acres in Hunters Valley near Vienna, the home offers all the amenities of a Hunt Country estate with close-in access. Custom-built by BOWA, the home showcases exceptional appeal from the moment a visitor arrives, with stunning architectural updates throughout more than 11,000 square feet of interior space. And the amenities are just beginning, as the home – set at the end of a culde-sac for immense privacy – is equally a showstopper in the outside, with a lovely pool (and slate deck) plus stable and paddock areas, all surrounded by woods for privacy. It’s a manor that would be at home among the gracious estates of The Plains and Upperville, yet there is no need to drive all that way. It can be found much closer to the corridors of power. The property currently is on the market, listed at $3,990,000 by The Yerks Team with Donna Moseley and John McNamara of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.

Designed by renowned architect Thomas French, and having benefited from TLC and a conscientious renovation in 2017, the home retains classic allure that begins in the welcoming foyer that leads to the formal rooms, with topquality accoutrements all around. The kitchen area offers stunning custom appointments and a sun-drenched breakfast room, with a catering kitchen nearby. The family room and library each offer sunny dispositions. The master retreat was designed to be a testament to casual luxury, with vaulted ceilings and rustic lighting, a sitting area, luxury spa and balcony. Five bedrooms (four en-suite) on the upper level are augmented by an in-law suite and playroom. The walkout lower level is home to a recreation room and changing spaces for the extroardinary pool, which offers an infinity waterfall, wading area and

hot tub to round out a celebration of grace and style. Do not delay: When might such an opportunity present itself again?

L.A., Atlanta, San Francisco Have Top 2018 Neighborhoods The Oaks in Los Angeles, Tuxedo Park in Atlanta and Presidio Heights in San Francisco rank as the most popular neighborhoods in the nation among prospective purchasers, according to new data from Zillow. To identify the nation’s most popular neighborhoods, Zillow looked for places with the highest number of page views per listing during the first three months of 2018. Among the 20 most popular neighborhoods on Zillow’s list, 15 are along the West Coast in either California or the state of Washington. (The Woodland-Normanstone neighborhood in the District of Columbia was the lone community in the local region to make the list ranking 14th.) For the most part, top neighborhoods are among the toniest in some of the most expensive cities in the country. While this doesn’t show a likelihood that more people will be buying homes and moving in, it does show how many people wish they could, or are curious about the neighborhood. The typical for-sale listing in The Oaks neighborhood has received almost 13,000 page views so far this year, compared to 365 page views on the typical U.S. home. The median list price in the neighborhood is about $3.7 million, more than double the median list price in the city of Calabasas, Calif., as a whole, where the neighborhood is located. The typical home for sale in The Oaks is about 5,600 square feet – 3,800 square feet larger than the median U.S. home. Tuxedo Park, the second most popular neighborhood on Zillow’s list, is in the city of Atlanta. The typical home for sale in this neighborhood is listed for just under $1.9 million and is 5,476 square feet. “Real estate shoppers are usually very aspirational, so it’s no surprise we have a lot of shoppers looking outside of where they can likely afford and, instead, looking at beautiful homes in desirable areas,” said Zillow senior economist Aaron Terrazas. “We see these more posh neighborhoods drawing shoppers in, but ultimately, these probably aren’t the neighborhoods most will end up in – but it’s hard to blame these buyers, because really, who hasn’t dreamed big when home shopping?”

McLean Day is Back and Better Than Ever H

ere’s a primer on what to expect at this year’s McLean Day festival. McLean Day 2018 is produced by the McLean Community Center (MCC). The festival will be held on Saturday, May 19, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Lewinsville Park, 1659 Chain Bridge Road. Admission is free. HISTORY OF A FESTIVAL

Now in its 103rd year, McLean Day began in 1915 when the McLean School and Civic League sponsored a festival to raise funds for school and community projects. Throughout the years, various community organizations kept it going, until MCC began producing it in the mid-1970s. In 1988 it moved to Lewinsville Park, where it has remained. LARGE RIDE PREVIEW

The party starts early this year! On Friday, May 18, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. patrons can come to Lewinsville Park to enjoy the large, ticketed amusement rides just inside the entrance on Chain Bridge Rd. Ride prices vary and some rides have height requirements. RIDES AND MORE AMUSEMENTS

A variety of popular large amusement rides can be enjoyed at McLean Day. Younger children can enjoy a “Kids’ Way” area that features ticketed rides especially for them. There will also be several free games and activities all over the park, including Bubble Ball, a climbing wall, laser tag and Squeals on Wheels Petting Zoo. CARNIVAL

Come hungry to McLean Day! The food options are numerous as food trucks are located around the park. Two large covered tents with picnic tables are conveniently located close to food vendors. MUSIC, MARTIAL ARTS & MCLEAN COMMUNITY PLAYERS

McLean Day now has two stages for entertainment—which means there is something for everyone to enjoy. Main Stage acts include: Mars Rodeo, Abada-Capoeira DC, The Harry Bells, The McLean Community Players and Still Surfin’. In addition, the McLean Citizens Association will present its annual Teen Character Awards at 3 p.m. Returning for a second year, is the Children’s Stage. Performers include students enrolled in Joy of Dance classes at MCC, as well as popular children’s entertainers Alex and The Kaleidoscope, Rocknoceros and Mister G. YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE

Nine Dranesville District 1A residents are running for seats on MCC’s 2018-19 Governing Board. Four adults are vying for three adult seats and five teens are vying for two student seats (one for the Langley High School boundary area and one for the McLean High School boundary area) on the 11-member board. Voting instructions and candidate information are available online at www.mcleancenter. org/about/candidates. FREE PARKING AND SHUTTLE SERVICE

Parking is not available at Lewinsville Park on the day of the festival, so MCC

strongly encourages participants to use its free shuttle service. Starting at 10:25 a.m. and running through 6 p.m., shuttle buses will run from the park to three satellite parking sites: McLean Baptist Church, 1367 Chain Bridge Road; Trinity United Methodist Church, 1205 Dolley Madison Blvd.; and Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, 1545 Chain Bridge Road. LET’S ALL HAVE FUN

Balloons, cigarettes, alcohol or other controlled substances are not permitted on the park grounds. Political candi-

dates, exhibitors and other venders must contain their activities to their assigned booths. Soliciting is not allowed on the grounds of the park during McLean Day. Patrons are encouraged to be aware of their surroundings and to report suspicious activities to Center staff and Police and Fire personnel. STAY IN THE KNOW – GET THE MCLEAN DAY APP

Candidates Vie for MCC Governing Board

O

n Saturday, May 19, the McLean Community Center’s (MCC) annual Governing Board elections will take place at McLean Day 2018. Residents of Dranesville Small District 1A can cast their votes from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Lewinsville Park, 1659 Chain Bridge Road. The board sets policy and provides general oversight for all programs of the Center and its facilities, including the Alden Theatre and the Old Firehouse Teen Center. Three adult positions and two youth positions are open this year. The adult candidates who receive the three-highest vote counts will serve three-year terms. Youth candidates, one from the McLean High School boundary area and one from the Langley High School boundary area, will serve one-year terms. Youth candidates do not have to attend these schools to serve on the board. ADULT CANDIDATE PERSONAL STATMENTS MARIA FODERARO-GUERTIN

I’m excited to run as a candidate for the board of the McLean Community Center. My husband and I have lived in McLean for 14 years. We’re grateful to be raising our twins in such a wonderful

community. I have been a foreign language and history teacher for 20 years. I have broad experience working with companies and nonprofits facing budget challenges. I’ve been pleased to work with many organizations advancing core values my parents instilled in me: volunteerism and hard work. With your vote, I will continue that work with our board to expand offerings for our vibrant community. CAROLE HERRICK

McLean Community Center opened in 1975; thus, it has served residents of Small District 1A for 43 years. It is the community’s jewel. Among its many features, the center provides community information, classes, lectures, meeting space, a kitchen, the Susan B. DuVal Art Studio, the MPA gallery, the Alden Theatre and a teen center. Years ago, I served three terms on the Governing Board, followed by Friends of MCC. Soon a more modern center will open. I hope to be the connection with the vision of those who created the original center and those providing a vision for its future. TERRI MARKWART

As a member of the McLean Community Center Board, I will support the mission of the Center by promoting a sense of community through its programs

BETTER

RAJ MEHRA

I am running for a seat on the McLean Community Center board because I care deeply about the community. My family has been residents of McLean since 2003 and my wife and daughters grew up in McLean. We are supporters of the McLean Project for the Arts, I have served for the last five years on the board of the Greater McLean Chamber of Commerce and when my children were younger, I was a coach for McLean Youth Soccer and McLean Basketball. The charm of McLean is what I treasure most, and I want to help preserve this. Youth Candidate Personal Statements LANGLEY HIGH SCHOOL BOUNDARY AREA CANDIDATES BRIAN KIM

see well enough to reach his full academic potential? Be sure. Four out of ten grade school children have vision problems which inhibit school achievement... vision problems that often to undetected by the basic “20/20” eye test administered by most schools.

and renovated facilities while respecting the tax dollars of the residents of Small District 1A. I am an 18-year resident of McLean with three children in our public schools. As Langley High School’s past PTSA President, former GMU adjunct professor, member of Redeemer Lutheran Church, TEDxTysons, Tysons Interfaith, Safe Community Coalition and McLean Youth/Langley athletics volunteer, my experience will work for the residents of Greater McLean. Thank you for your vote.

Hello, my name is Brian and I am a student at Langley High School. I am running for a position on the Governing Board to become an active member of my community. I have had previous experiences as a campaign organizer at the Fairfax County Democratic Committee, an intern at Sejong Geriatric Hospital and a volunteer at Sibley Memorial Hospital. At Langley, I am a member of the Debate Team and Varsity Golf Team. Overall, I am not only interested in working with professionals and other students, but also eager to participate in the administration of McLean. MEGAN MARKWART

A lifelong McLean resident and sophomore at Langley, I’ve been attending MCC programs since I was born—tagging along with my siblings to Music Together class. Redeemer Lutheran Church and my family taught me the importance of giving back and sports taught me the value of working together as a team. I work at McLean Hardware, play Langley Field Hockey, JV Soccer Captain and elected Class of 2020 SGA representative. I am also interested in being part of the discussion about how to increase youth programming at the Old Firehouse and the newly renovated MCC. Thank you for your vote. MCLEAN HIGH SCHOOL BOUNDARY AREA CANDIDATES SERENA AURORA

I believe that student governors have a

special role and should always try to assess issues and decisions from the point of view of other students. Being student governor is about making sure that all perspectives are considered. I want to become a youth governor to learn more about how the community is run and to support the people in it. I have gained many experiences ranging from leading and participating in various committees to holding leadership roles. In all, I want to have a better understanding of the main concerns and policies that affect the children in our community. LAUREN HERZBERG

I am a second-generation McLean resident; I love this town and the people that make it up. McLean High School has fostered my love for field hockey, where I was JV captain and Varsity player, developed my interest in business through DECA and spurred by fascination with the Spanish language. My true passion lies in serving others. I volunteer for Jill’s House, where I provide care for children with disabilities. I pledge to implement my love for service into the McLean Community Center and promote leadership programs to prepare McLean’s youth for the future. KIMYA SHIRAZI

The identity of a community is characterized by the degree to which its members are engaged with one another. As a member of the McLean community for 16 years, I’ve always felt the unique sense of inclusion that its people, events and resources offer. I’m currently a junior at McLean High School who is running for the McLean student position on the McLean Community Center Board. My primary intention for wanting this position is because I aim to play an influential role in heightening McLean’s collective involvement, the same quality which I admire about the community in the first place. Write-in Candidates are allowed. Write-in candidates must receive at least 10 votes from 10 residents of the Center’s tax district to have their votes counted. For youth write-in candidates, the 10 votes must come from teens who live within the same high school boundary area as the candidate. Absentee ballots are available. A resident may request an absentee ballot package by phone (703-790-0123) or email (elections@mcleancenter.org), or may pick one up at three of MCC’s sites: Administrative Offices, at 6631 Old Dominion Dr.; Class Program/Registration Office, at 6645 Old Dominion Drive; or the Old Firehouse Teen Center, 1440 Chain Bridge Road. Completed absentee voting affidavits and ballots must be received at one of the three sites by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 16.

McLean Day draws on more than a century of history s McLean Day has moved into its second century, it presents a perfect opportunity to take an entry-level course in the history of the event, which was established in 1915 and was the first festival of its kind to be held in Fairfax County. The first “McLean Day” was sponsored by the McLean School and Civic League, with the support of the McLean Volunteer Fire Department. It was held in an open field adjacent to the school. The purpose of the event was to raise funds for various school and community projects. The first festival went on for several weeks, unlike the one-day festival held today. In the early years, the festival was held on the Saturday preceding the Democratic primary in August, which made it as popular with political candidates seeking office as it was with the local residents. Attractions included carnival games, a baby show, dancing, performances and a lot of homemade refreshments. A favored event was the “jousting” tournament. Men, dressed as knights from the Middle Ages, rode horses at full gallop while attempting to place a lance through a tiny ring. The winner had the privilege of crowning his “lady” “Queen of Love and Beauty.” While much has changed over the years, McLean Day’s success is still due to the support of the community. Many McLean-based, civic organizations participate at some level every year. After the McLean Community Center was established in 1975, the event was held at the Center. In 1989, after teaming up with many community groups, including the McLean Business and Professional organization (now the Greater McLean Chamber of Commerce), the Center moved McLean Day to its current location, Lewinsville Park. Today, McLean Day is as vital, strong and well-loved by the community as it has ever been.

Team Undefeated In District Action A Staff Report

Madison Wins Last Two; Oakton Wins Opener DAVE FACINOLI Staff Writer

Add one more to the many previous outright regular-season district baseball finishes BASEBALL first-place the Madison Warhawks have earned in the high school team’s long accomplished history. The only thing different about this year’s Concorde District top finish is the title is something new, because Madison is playing in the league for the first time. A 3-1 road victory over the Oakton Cougars on May 8 ended the Warhawks’ regular-season with a 13-6 overall mark, 6-2 district record and a two-game win-

ning streak. Madison will be the top seed in the Concorde tournament and earns an automatic berth to play in the region tournament. The Warhawks first districttourney game is May 15 in a semifinal contest at Madison. The Warhawks played in the Liberty District for the past 24 years or so, where they won numerous regular-season and tourney crowns. “We had one returning [position player] starter back, so the guys really grinded and played tough. I’m proud of them for that, and this feels good,” Madison coach Mark Gjormand said. “It’s nice to finish with a win like that.”

Madison trailed Oakton (8-11-1, 3-5) 1-0 through five innings as junior righthander Jack Whipp kept the Warhawk hitters off balance with changeups. He went 51/3 innings with three strikeouts. “We have seen so many strong arms this season, tonight their guy did a great job,” Gjormand said. Madison scored its three runs in the sixth on RBI singles by Josh Gjormand and Zach Perkins, a walk to Kyle Novak, Sam Kobayashi getting hit by a pitch, an Oakton error and two wild pitches. Madison had six hits (all singles) with

Most of the talk is about the game at hand, and things like playing time for certain players, questioning a strategy, remarking about an umpire’s call, or the mood or health of some of the players. Conversations do venture into other subjects at times – often about the players, like their health or an injury – since many of the spectators are parents, relatives, neighbors, friends or fellow students. The choices of where particular senior players might be attending college, and being put on waiting lists, often are popular topics. Summer teams and the soaring participation costs is whispered about. Beach week, an annual post-graduation celebration for high school seniors, summer vacation sites and plans, plus whether college freshmen will be allowed to join a social fraternity or sorority can be quite interesting chatter to hear. The conversations were a little different sitting among softball spectators from the St. Mary’s Ryken high school girls team in southern Maryland during a May 5 tournament championship game at Holy Cross in Montgomery County. Instead of Virginia colleges, various Maryland schools were more the topic – the University of Maryland, UMBC, Bowie State, Salisbury University, St. Mary’s and some of the community colleges. The traffic talk differed. What was up along Routes 5 and 301 in Maryland, the Maryland side of the Capital Beltway, Rockville Pike, and the Woodrow Wilson Bridge? Names of unfamiliar restaurants and adult slowpitch softball leagues in Maryland were mentioned. Those many topics can all make for good listening.

Panthers Stay Stingy, Capture League Tournament Title DAVE FACINOLI Staff Writer

The Potomac School Panthers (13-1) continued their stretch of playing strong and stingy softball in recent weeks by defeating the SOFTBALL top seed Flint Hill Huskies, 6-2, May 12 in the championship game of the Independent School League’s AA Division girls high school tournament at Episcopal High School. The second-seeded Panthers have won 10 games in a row and were 3-0 in tournament, avenging their only loss of the season by defeating defending champion Flint Hill in the final. Flint Hill (12-1) downed Potomac School, 5-1, during the regular season. “We were much sharper in this game compared to the first time we played them,” Potomac School coach Wayne Loving said. “We have been playing well. We’ve been hitting, playing good defense and getting good pitching.” Loving said that infielders Charlotte Thompson, Caroline Brown and Caroline Semel have been solid. defensively all season.

The ISL tournament title was the first for Potomac School in six years, which was also the first season Loving took over as head coach. In the final, Potomac School scored two runs in the first inning then four in the seventh. Anna Takis had three hits and two RBI and Maria Urban (RBI), Caroline Semel and Kat Plaza each had two hits. Kate Newton and Caroline Culp had an RBI each. Urban (6-1) went seven innings on the mound, with eight strikeouts to get the win. The runs were unearned.

Natalie Plaut fanned seven for Flint Hill. “Maria really pitched well and was in control the whole game,” Loving said. Potomac School routed Holton-Arms, 16-1, in the first round as Culp (7-0) threw a four-hitter. Urban had three hits and Semel and Caroline Jackson had two each.Against National Cathedral School in the semis, Potomac School won 15-0. Takis had three hits, Plaza had two hits and two RBI and Urban had two hits and was the winning pitcher with four strikeouts. “We have strong hitting throughout the lineup,” Loving said. Potomac School has allowed just six runs in its last five games. Flint Hill was 2-1 in the tourney, downing Sidwell Friends, 18-3, in its opener as Plaut (two hits) and Sarah Davisson (two hits) combined on a three-hitter. Aubree Phillips had two hits and two RBI. Tess Brady and Sarah McCue each drove in three runs. Flint Hill routed St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes, 12-2, in the semifinals. Kathleen Boyce had three hits and two RBI. Lauren Meier added two hits and Amber Carrico had two RBI. Plaut fanned seven to get the win.

High School Roundup MADISON SOFTBALL RANKED THIRD IN NATION: The undefeated Madison

Warhawks (20-0) made a big one-week jump in USA Today’s national girls high school softball rankings, jumping from seventh to No. 3 in the country in last week’s poll. That move came after Madison’s most recent win, a 19-0 victory over the Oakton Cougars. Madison, which has a two-season 34-game winning streak and a 48-1 twoseason record, is the top seed in this week’s Concorde District tournament. The two teams ahead of Madison in the USA Today poll are Hamilton (321) from Chandler, Ariz. and Neshoba Central (32-0) in Philadelphia, Miss. BASEBALL ACTION: The Langley Sax-

ons (9-12) were a first-round home winner in Liberty District high school baseball tournament playoff action May 11. Langley defeated the WashingtonLee Generals, 8-4, as Max Trautwein homered and had two hits, Timmy Swiers added two hits, Michael Sevila had a two-run single, Colter Carton doubled and had a sacrifice fly and Cooper Davis had an RBI single. Nick Gasparis had Langley’s other hit and stole a base. Right-hander Kenny Lippman (5-1) went six innings to get the win. He allowed three hits, one earned run, did not walk a batter and struck out four. He had a perfect game for three innings. “Kenny pitched great, we swung the

bats and took advantage of opportunities when they made some errors,” Langley coach Kevin Healy said. n For the first time since 1996, the Potomac School Panthers are the outright Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference regular-season baseball champions. The high school team clinched that title with an 11-0 victory over Georgetown Day on May 8. The Panthers (16-5) became the top seed in the MAC tournament, received a first-round bye then won a semifinal game over Maret, 4-3, on May 12.. In the win over Georgetown Day, Michael Hansan had three hits and four RBI, Carter Bosch and Tristan Nelson each had two hits, Jon Schooner had three RBI and T.J. Sharkey had one. Brendan Mabus and Matt Plaza combined for the shutout. Against Maret, Hansan had two hits and Nelson and Tommy Riley had RBI. Potomac School scored the winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Panthers were scheduled to play St. James in the championship game that had not been scheduled when the week began. The No. 2 seeded and defending champion Flint Hill Huskies (16-9) routed St. Andrews, 12-2, in first-round MAC tourney action, then lost to St. James, 3-2, in the semifinals. Justin Taylor had three RBI for Flint Hill against St. Andrews. Jackson Werth

recognized Potomac School freshman Aalia Husain as an All-American. “Aalia is an outstanding squash player, and her sportsmanship is unparalleled,” Potomac School coach Carole Grunberg said. Husain played the No. 1 singles position for Potomac School. At the high school national championships, Husain led Potomac to the Division IV national title, going 4-0 in singles play.

Junior left-hander Matt Howat (4-0) threw a complete-game two hitter with six strikeouts to get the win for Madison. Both hits came in the fourth inning, one on a misjudged fly-ball double by Jared Kimbel, then an RBI single by J.P. Neary. Howat then retired 10 of the final 11 batters he faced. He walked two in the game with a pitch-count just over 90.

“Matt was excellent. He has been all year,” Mark Gjormand said. Looking ahead to the postseason, Novak said the Warhawks have the right approach. “It was cool to win this game against Oakton, but we won’t put more importance on any one game more than any other,” he said. Oakton is the defending Concorde

doubled and had an RBI, and Garrett Canterbury, L.A. Rice and Brendan Albrittain each had a hit and an RBI. Albrittain was the winning pitcher. Flint Hill used five pitchers. L.A. Rice had four hits and Kevin Kuykendall two against St. James. Potomac School and Flint Hill each were scheduled to play opening-rond action in the Division I private-school state tournament earlier this week. Potomac School was the eighth seed and Flint Hill the sixth. OAKCREST GOLF: The Oakcrest girls golf team defeated Bishop Ireton, 174189, in a recent nine-hole match.

between the Dulles Toll Road interchange and the American Legion Bridge. VDOT will hold a public-information about the study June 11 at 6:30 p.m. at Cooper Middle School in McLean, said Allison Richter, who works for the agency in Arlington and Fairfax counties. Law Enforcement, Neighborhood Restrictions Aimed at Reducing CutThrough Traffic: Some McLean residents are unhappy that American Legion Bridge traffic backups are prompting motorists to find shortcuts through local neighborhoods and then causing gridlock when too many motorists try to negotiate the intersection of Balls Hill Road and Georgetown Pike near the Beltway. Master Police Officer John Alford of the Fairfax County police, who since April 4 has been conducting increased traffic enforcement at that intersection, said officers ticketed 19 drivers that first evening, including one for driving while intoxicated. Two days later, police during a three-hour evening period ticketed 20 drivers and made two felony arrests, one of which was for narcotics. Fairfax County police Capt. Alan Hanson, the new commander of the McLean District Station, told residents to call him if they desired the presence of a speed trailer on their street to deter speeders. Such measures, plus additional enforcement, typically force behavioral changes in drivers for as long as monitoring continues, he said. VDOT has tried to help neighborhoods control the influx of vehicles by installing temporary traffic-monitoring cameras, larger “Do No Block the Intersection” signs topped by orange flags, additional “No U-Turn” signs, Richter said. Smartphone apps are complicating efforts to reduce cut-through traffic, said John Schell, chairman of the McLean Transportation Advisory Group. “The biggest problem we face, I think, is that if you change the traffic on one of the streets, Waze [one of the apps] will have all the drivers go on another street,” Schell said. “This really is a community – not a street-by-street, neighborhood-byneighborhood – kind of problem.” To qualify for Fairfax County’s cutthrough restriction program, neighborhoods must prove their roads have at least 150 cut-through vehicles in one direction during a peak hour and show that total accounts for more than 40 percent of traffic in that time period, said Neil Freschman of the Fairfax County Depart-

egarden at three, Andrew Lacaden at four, Nabil Lahou at five, and Oscar Tidd at six along with Ian Kuester, Kiah Spraker and Matthew Johannsen. McLean’s lone loss in district play was to South Lakes, 5-4, with two starters missing. McLean won the rematch, by a 7-2 score with those starters back ment of Transportation. Officials distributed a map showing several streets and neighborhoods just to the east of I-495 and Georgetown Pike that residents have asked be reviewed for possible anti-cut-through measures. These include Langley Forest; Thrasher Road; Earnestine Street; Elmwood Estates; Beverly Manor; Kings Manor; and Carper Street and Dead Run Drive. That last location has qualified for a cut-through project, Freschman said, adding that the next step will be collection of a sufficient number of petition signatures to move the project forward. Officials then would produce a plan; before implementing it, they would query the community further to make sure residents understood the potential impacts. “If any kind of cut-through restriction is implemented . . . it applies to all vehicles” except school buses and emergency vehicles, Freschman cautioned. “We currently do not have the authority in Fairfax County to have a program that is residents-only.” VDOT Plotting Relief at Balls Hill Road, Georgetown Pike: VDOT officials also outlined a proposal to cut gridlock at Georgetown Pike and Balls Hill Road. Northbound traffic on Balls Hill, which now uses the same lane either to go straight or turn left, experiences average delays of 88.8 seconds during the morning rush hour and 81 seconds in the peak evening period, said Tom Folse, a VDOT traffic engineer. VDOT’s proposal would eliminate a traffic median there, build a new southbound lane where a VDOT staging area is and install a third turning lane on northbound Balls Hill Road. This would allot separate lanes to vehicles turning right or left or heading straight. The stop bar for eastbound Georgetown Pike traffic would be moved slightly to the west under this scenario. Through traffic on northbound Balls Hill Road would see delays reduced by an estimated 46.7 seconds in the morning peak period and 42.6 seconds during the evening rush. Left-turning northbound traffic there would see more modest delay reductions of an estimated 4.6 and 7.5 seconds, respectively. This proposal would require utility relocation, stormwater management, and the milling and paving of the existing road, plus the new lane and shoulder, Richter said. The $1.5 million project would require about two years for design work, utility relocation and construction, she said, adding that VDOT and Fairfax County officials still must find funding for the initiative.

Continued from Page 1 glass. • The central lobby has been lengthened toward the back and will feature a new stairwell leading upstairs to the McLean Project for the Arts. The lobby also now will be home to the center’s front desk. • An enclosed courtyard will be open to the sky, have plantings and benches, and offer a garden-like atmosphere, Sachs said. The courtyard improvements will be financed in part with a $50,000 gift from McLean residents Roberto and Gloria Maria Federigan. “It will be a feature that not too many facilities have,” Sachs said. • A new multipurpose room constructed at the site’s rear will be used primarily for the center’s dance and exercise programs and have a sprung-wood floor that’s softer to land upon, Sachs said. The room’s floor-to-ceiling windows will use “fritted” glass that allows people inside to see outdoors clearly, but obscures the view of the room from outside. • A new conference room in the facility’s expanded area also will offer appealing outdoor views, Sachs said. • A former small conference room has been converted to an office suite for the center’s theater staff. • The center’s community room, long

used for meetings by groups such as the McLean Citizens Association, will be renovated thoroughly. The room’s wooden floor will be refinished and the ceiling coverings and soundproofing will be new. • Some of the site’s office areas will be reconfigured, with a former small meeting area converted into a staff break room. A new vending-machine room will be located on the other side of the building from the site’s old one. • The entire building now will be covered by a sprinkler system. • Center officials have added some parking spaces by reconfiguring the lot. The facility will have the 298 spaces required by the county, Sachs said. • A retention area built on the center’s grounds will aid with stormwater management. Water-storage areas beneath the parking lot will release stormwater slowly, instead of in a torrent, said Joe McGovern, the center’s facility manager. • Lighted bollards will better illuminate the walkway in front of the center, Sachs said. The renovated building will seem much more open and have glassed-in walkway extending around the enclosed courtyard, Sachs said. Downstairs areas will be renovated, but not altered substantially, McGovern said. The project is about two weeks behind schedule because of underground-utility rerouting and weather difficulties, but officials hope to make up some of that time during execution of the remaining inte-

rior work. “They can have different trades going on at the same time now,” McGovern said of the construction crew. “They’re largely out of each other’s way.” The community center’s Alden Theatre was not part of the project’s scope and will not be modified. The theater receives regular maintenance and is in good condition, Sachs said. “It’s ready to go, ready to get people back in there,” he said. So far, the project has not experienced major structural hiccups of the kind that bedeviled the expansion and renovation of the Vienna Community Center, which reopened to the public last fall several months behind schedule.

“We’ve got a good team of people who’ve been staying on the project throughout,” Sachs said, especially crediting personnel from the Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services. There has been “a lot of hands-on, a lot of eyes-on, a lot of watching this as it’s been going,” he said. “Everything has been pretty smooth.” The project is completely funded and so far is coming in under budget. Officials have set aside funds to cover whatever exigencies occur in the future, he said. “If all continues on schedule, we will be back in operation in time for our winter/spring season of classes and programs beginning January 2019,” Sachs said.

Transportation Notes DULLES TOLL ROAD FEES MAY RISE IN 2019: Fees paid by motorists on the

Dulles Toll Road would jump by about one-third starting next year under a proposed schedule listed in a report to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA). Motorists making all but the shortest trips since 2014 have paid $2.50 at the mainline plaza and $1 at exit ramps, for a total of $3.50. According to the staff report, tolls would hold steady through this year, but from 2019 through 2022 would rise to $3.25 at the mainline plaza and $1.50 at exit ramps, bringing the total to $4.75. Tolls would keep increasing in the decades ahead, under the tentative schedule. From 2023 through 2027, the total would be $6 ($4 at the mainline plaza, $2 at exit ramps); from 2028 through 2032, the total would be $7.25 ($4.75 and $2.50, respectively); from 2033 through 2037, the total would be $8.75 ($5.50 and $3.25); from 2038 through 2042, the total would be $10 ($6.25 and $3.75); and from 2043 through 2058, the total would be $11.25 ($7 and $4.25). MWAA’s board of directors will review the toll report at its May 16 meeting. The proposed schedule calls for MWAA’s board on June 20 to authorize

the agency to proceed with the regulatory process for the proposed rate adjustments and their effective dates. The Airports Authority would accept public comments about the proposed increases during July and August (the starting and cutoff dates for that period have yet to be determined), followed by reports on those comments in September and board action on the toll increases on Oct. 17. MWAA has not yet determined when in 2019 the higher tolls would be implemented. For more information, visit www. mwaa.com/board-meeting-schedule.

by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The deal has won approval from the U.S. Department of Justice. Southwest inaugurated service to Reagan National in July 2012 with once-a-day service to Austin. It has grown to have a market share of about 14 percent of all passengers at the airport, ranking behind only dominant American Airlines. Alaska Airlines began service to Reagan National in early September 2001 with service to Seattle and on to Anchorage. Today, it ranks sixth in passenger totals at the airport, carrying about 3 percent of all passengers.

The airline has announced plans to lease additional take-off and landing slots at the airport from Alaska Airlines.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority on May 17 will welcome a new carrier – Volaris – to Washington Dulles International Airport. The carrier is starting up service to San Salvador, El Salvador, with connecting service to San José, Costa Rica. “The carrier’s model provides a new, low-price option for people traveling to El Salvador and Costa Rica, particularly entrepreneurs and those visiting friends and relatives,” MWAA officials said. The inaugural flight arrives at 11:35 p.m. on May 13 and departs at 1:52 a.m. on May 17, using Airbus A319 aircraft. May 17, 2018 27
