The Washington Business Journal Likes Us and So Will You

Town of OccoquanThe latest edition of the Washington Business Journal (WBJ) has named Town of Occoquan and the Occoquan River Communities in the top 13 communities to watch in the DC Metro area in the future.

Having recently posted about New Urbanism in Northern Virginia it was interesting to see the WBJ cover some of the same thoughts expressed in my post.  Stating that Gen X and Gen Y buyers are looking to finding live, work and play neighborhoods with good transportation options to Washington DC.

Occoquan was selected due to its historic charm and it's location between Fort Belvoir and Quantico.  In addition to the Town of Occoquan itself the WBJ recognized Belmont Bay and Lorton as smart growth developments which are contributing to the success of the area.  With multiple Virginia Rail Express stations close by, the area is ready to grow with the new jobs (BRAC) slated to move to the area.

As a member of the Occoquan River Communities it is nice to see our vision for the area being recognized.  We are meeting with economic developers and community leaders to continue our mission of making Belmont Bay, Lorton and the Town of Occoquan  the next destination that residents of Northern Virginia will want to call home.

I have been to Occoquan many times and I like it, too.  Congratulations on the recognition your town received.

Once again you are on top of the news for your area!  I'm glad that I made the move out of the crowded tysons area to Belmont Bay.  Waking up in the morning to the sound of the birds is much better than the trash trucks I used to hear.

Shirley-I'm glad you have had the chance to come to Occoquan and our area.  This hidden gem may not stay hidden much longer.

Pat-thanks for the kuddos.  It helps that I am an active member of the ORC.  I'm glad you are enjoying the change from the noise of Tysons Corner for our quieter part of the area.
