When the Wall Street Journal called Herndon, Virginia, one of the top three "boom towns" in the United States, they were referring to its remarkable growth during the past decade. While the community has doubled in population over the past decade, community leaders have managed to balance that growth with quality of life issue.
One of the best examples of Herndon's blending of commerce and character is the Herndon Municipal Center complex. The $16 million complex was completed in 1995 after more than a decade of careful planning to revitalize the historic downtown and ensure it would be a thriving "people place," reminiscent of Herndon's early, bustling days as a farming village. The Herndon Municipal Center complex includes a branch of the Fairfax County library system, a government office building, the Herndon Council/Fairfax District Court meeting facility, and the Town Green for special events and concerts. Development of the complex led to the revitalization of several historic commercial buildings in the area.
