Reston Gets Billing on Three Silver Line Metro Stations; Herndon Likely To Be Annoyed By Choices, Restonian, March 29, 2011

Restonite always says it so much better than those stuffy official statements.    So here it is, complete with that sharp-stick-in-your-eye spin from the Restonian blog.



The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has formally recommended the names for the upcoming Silver Line Metro stations. They'll likely please Restonians and annoy Herndonians.
The stations will be named:

Tysons-McLean
Tysons I & II
Tysons Central
Tysons-Spring Hill Rd
Reston-Wiehle Ave
Reston Town Center
Herndon-Reston West
Herndon-Dulles East

The Board of Supervisors pointed out that each proposed station name connotes a community: Tysons, Reston, Herndon, or McLean. Some include street names while others include the name of shopping malls and a town center.
This will likely rile the folks in our tolerant neighbor to the west, who didn't want to befoul their town's good name by having to share a station name with the other Reston. . . .
