Where has this year gone? I look at the calendar and see that it’s November, and yet it feels like 2013 just got started. The sands have been flowing through the hourglass faster than usual this year.
One reason for that, I know, is that we’ve been dealing with so many major issues in Reston this year. The coming of the Silver Line and the associated revision of our Comprehensive Plan has been the biggest one, but looking back, it’s amazing how much we’ve taken on this year: The battle over the Reston National golf course. The proposed new RCC rec center. The Beta Plan and the future of our County libraries. The Lake Anne redevelopment. And those are just the ones I can remember off the top of my head. No wonder 2013 hss seemed to pass in the blink of an eye.
One advantage to the way we’ve been flying through the calendar is that it’s now time for one of my favorite events: RCA’s Citizen of the Year award. We’re now accepting nominations for the 2013 award. . . .Click here for the rest of Colin's call for RCA Citizen of the Year nominations.
