Demolishing History in Herndon?
Thank you for publishing your story, “Residents Oppose Demolishing 113-year old Buildings” in your March 8th issue. I would like to make a couple of clarifications. The house at 725 Elden Street is 135 years old, not 113 years old. It is the second oldest home in downtown Herndon. This house is considered a historic/contributing structure and has protected status. Before such a structure can be demolished the applicants are supposed to show that the house is not structurally sound, or cannot be relocated, modified or sold, which the applicants have not demonstrated. Although the house is a residential building, the applicant has only made little effort to sell it as a commercial property, at a very high price, without commissions offered to real estate agents.
Uncertainties in the Spring Air
I’m usually pretty optimistic at this time of year. It's Spring! Things are turning green outside and I’m thinking of the coming farmers market season. Insofar as those things go, we are on track as usual in 2023. But I’m also very much interested in the political environment and the current one is filled with uncertainty. We’ve had a mild shock to our system with the surprise retirement of a 43-year institution, Delegate Ken Plum. Suddenly, we’ve got a scramble among a variety of at least five mostly untested Democratic candidates for Delegate. Two have run once for office and lost; another has served on the County School Board. John Farrell, a member of the Reston Association Board of Directors, is a first-time candidate for political office. And, we’ve yet to hear from the Republican Party, which to my knowledge locally has not taken on the alt right character of the national Republicans.
