The redevelopment project for Herndon's downtown, which will bring retail and residential space to the historic downtown area, is continuing its forward momentum. At its Public Hearing on December 14, 2021, the Herndon Town Council approved a Memorandum of Understanding with the Board of Supervisors of Fairfax County to accept a grant from the Fairfax County Economic Opportunity Fund (EOR) in the amount of $5 million for the project. This new grant aligns with the town's commitment to Comstock, its development partner, to work in good faith to bring the project to fruition.
Comstock anticipates a groundbreaking in the spring. News on the relocation of Arts Herndon and temporary relocation of downtown parking will be announced shortly; bookmark the town's website for updates.
