Fairfax may pay for garage at Wiehle Ave. Metro station


In this article we learn about Fairfax County‘s plans to help pay for a parking garage near a DC Metro stop that was originally supposed to be developer-financed.  Now, a parking garage generally isn’t anything exciting, but what is interesting about this is that the County is willing to foot a significant bill–an estimated $90 million–in an effort to help create TOD.  And not only that, but it sounds like the developer has agreed to do something nice with the parking garage, which can often become an eyesore when left to its own devices.  This is a good thing for Fairfax County and a good example to other local government entities.
