Sunday Forum on Local Real Estate Development

League of Women Voters Hosts Forum on Local Real Estate Development

The League of Women Voters of Falls Church will host a local issues forum Sunday February 21 entitled “Understanding Commercial Real Estate Development in Falls Church: Four Perspectives.” The forum will be held from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Falls Church Community Center, 223 Little Falls Street.

Commercial real estate taxes now represent more than 10 percent of city revenues and commercial real estate development now impacts the city on many different levels. The forum is designed to share the perspectives of government officials, developers, retailers and local residents on this important issue.

The discussion will feature a panel of speakers: City Councilman Phil Duncan; Bruce Leonard, managing principal of Streetsense, a collective involved in designing retail projects around the country and metro area; Keith Thurston, president of the Village Preservation and Improvement Society; and developer Robert Young, principal in The Young Group. Following their presentations, the forum will include a question-and-answer period.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information on the Falls Church League and its activities go to www.lwvfallschurch.org <http://www.lwvfallschurch.org/>
