On Wednesday, April 19, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority held its monthly business meeting at Loudoun’s Washington Dulles International Airport.

Lori Aratani, a transportation and development specialist for the Washington Post, tweeted out updates from the discussion on Dulles Airport, including new retail expected to open in the terminal:

Last week, Dulles Airport unveiled a photo exhibit in its main terminal featuring iconic scenes from Beijing. This was the reciprocal part of a marketing agreement between Dulles and Beijing airports that Loudoun Economic Development had a hand in inaugurating last spring.

For the last year, scenes from Loudoun County have been on display for the millions of travelers in Beijing Capital International Airport.

Aratani also tweeted updates on Metrorail’s Silver Line construction to Loudoun County, which is more than half complete:

Loudoun has more greenfield space around the Metro than any other county in the region, which provide great opportunities for mixed use developments. If you have questions about Loudoun County developments and available parcels and properties, contact Economic Development’s Karen Lanham.

    The County needs to better plan and manage ALL aspects of this growth, including adequate traffic lights, street and median maintenance, and police presence. Rte 50 along the southern border of LOCO is a dangerous, dirty eyesore, while new construction continues to explode. Look around; the country’s fastest growing county looks not much better than metro areas around Philadelphia and New York City. Disgraceful.
