Mr. Herrity said that rather than help subsidize housing for people making upward of $100,000 a year, he would like to see those funds help fill some of the $1.6 billion in estimated transportation needs for the area over that time period.
“Absent a good transportation network, developers may not be willing to take the risk of developing, and the future potential of Tysons may not be reached,” he said. “This is why … dollars must be used to fund transportation improvements, not [to] subsidize housing for those making $70,000 to $120,000 per year.”
