Council Should Approve Harris Teeter Project


My wife and I, who moved to Falls Church City a little over a year ago to raise our two young children, are writing to express our wish that the Harris Teeter project be approved.

We feel that it would be an important step in the right direction – building upon the Spectrum mixed-use development – to making our city more walk-able and livable. We live off West St. a couple of blocks south of Broad, and we find ourselves disappointed that there are not more restaurants, pubs, and coffee shops we can easily walk to.

We are optimistic, however, that the City’s leaders and citizen volunteers understand the importance of making our city an attractive place for young families, many of whom leave urban environments when they have young children and then greatly miss the walk-ability and access (as we did, and do!) of urban living.

We feel the Harris Teeter project – and others mixed-use developments like it – are integral to helping Falls Church City continue its legacy of a great place to live and raise a family. Thank you for your consideration.
