The Clock Tower Plaza in Herndon, Va, and the area of apartments around it is great community to be a part of. It is right off of Centerville Rd. and you can see the Clock Tower from the many surrounding homes. In the plaza itself there is a wide range of goods and services. From the one of a kind pizzeria, Rubinos, to a tailors shop for clothes and shoes. There really is every kind of store that you can think of there. I myself can walk from my home to the Shopper’s Warehouse and back in a matter of five minutes. There is a great place to go play pool, right above a Gold’s gym. There are fast food and dine in restaurants, an auto service station, a gas station, and a good variety of small independently owned businesses.
The community around the Plaza is a great place to live. There are many apartments and town houses centered around the plaza and Mcnair Elementary School. The people in the community are very diverse and there are many families with children. It is a great place for a child to grow up and make good lasting relationships. If there were three words I would use to describe the area, I would say convenient, diverse, and friendly.

You’re invited to give feedback on future land-use near proposed Wiehle Avenue Metro Station
As you may know the new Silver Line is being planned to take commuters from Reston/Herndon into the City. The Wiehle Metro Station will be located just west of Tyson’s Corner at Weihle Avenue. Planners and adminstrators have invited the public to offer input about the land-use around the proposed station on March 20, at 9 a.m. The public workshop will be held at the Langston Hughes Middle School cafeteria, 11401 Ridge Heights Road, Reston. The draft agenda for this workshop is available online.
The goal of this development is to take advantage of proximity to Metro while preserving nearby neighborhoods. The Reston Master Plan Task Force will develop recommendations for future land use for the Dulles Corridor. This includes the areas around the future Wiehle Avenue, Reston Parkway and Herndon-Monroe Metro stations, as well as Reston Town Center. Community workshops will be conducted for each of these areas, so the public can offer their input. Public hearings also will be held later this year on the overall recommendations for the corridor.
The task force is scheduled to present its recommendationsthis summer and they will be sent to the Fairfax County Planning Commission for review this fall. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will then vote on whether to include the recommendations in the Comprehensive Plan for the corridor.
Materials from previous workshops are available online.
