I think the Fairlington and Bailey's Crossroads sections of Arlington should be part of a Senate District that has an Arlington focus, and should not become part of a Disrict heavily dominated by Alexandria.

I kept looking into this and it looks like the boundaries here between districts 4 and 6 are based, at least in-part, on boundaries that were based an old census designated place for Tyson's Corner. But the boundaries here do not match the most recent boundary for the Tyson's CDP (https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/fact/map/tysonscdpvirginia/PST045219). More importantly, the Tyson's CDP extends too far south in this region. To the extent that this region between Chain Bridge Road, Leesburg Pike, and 495 is going to be split between districts, it should follow how Fairfax County distinguishes between Tyson's Corner and the surrounding communities for specialized development (see https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/tysons/tysons-corner-interactive-portal and attached).

I urge the Virginia Redistricting Commission to avoid including Fairfax County in districts that are primarily Alexandria districts. Instead, include Arlington County areas to “fill out” Alexandria districts. There are a few reasons to take this approach: First, Alexandria and Arlington have recently worked closely on the Crystal City (Arlington County)/Potomac Yard (Alexandria) “National Landing” area where the Amazon Headquarters 2 and the new Virginia Tech Innovation Campus will be. The relationship between the two jurisdictions over this geographic area will continue for many years to come. The second reason is population size. Alexandria has a population of 159,467 and Arlington’s is 238,643. Fairfax at 1,145,670 is so much larger than either Alexandria of Arlington. Fairfax County’s challenges are more numerous and more complex. A senator who represents both Alexandria and Fairfax County will likely have to spend a lot of time on Fairfax County issues although she/he represents only a very small number of Fairfax County constituents. Make the combination Alexandria-Arlington County, not Alexandria-Fairfax County. Finally, under no circumstances should a senator have to represent constituents in Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax County. That senator will will have to split her or his time too many ways if she/he has to work with those three local governments’ legislative agendas.

While Fairfax County Parkway is generally a good dividing line between districts 16 and 17, the Fox Mill neighborhood actually extends a little further down Pinecrest Road via a bridge over the parkway. I'm attaching a map from the Fox Mill Estates website (fmeha.org) that shows which roads in particular are part of the community. I'm from the eastern part of Fox Mill however, so I recommend getting more feedback from the Fox Mill residents west of Fairfax Co Parkway.

Please note that the comment attached to the pin to the west of here doesn't make sense because the pin was incorrectly placed. A correctly placed pin with this comment has been added in the correct spot.

I like how Northern Merrifield is kept together with neighborhoods to the north and west that share a number of interests---particularly with respect to shared infrastructure. It may make sense to extend this boundary east all the way to I-495 as these neighborhoods across from Gallows Road share similar strong interests.

This is a repeat because the previous comment was pinned to the wrong spot (I didn't realize when closing an unfinished comment and clicking to reopen it that it would move the pin; the other pin is between Prosperity Avenue and Wyndford Dr, a bit West of Hillside Pl; it doesn't make sense given its location). The comment that was meant for this location: This whole section doesn't make sense. Why does Amber Meadows Dr. fall in District 6 while the road it is connected to falls in District 4? I think this whole chunk should be in District 6, all the way to Maple Ave and Leesburg Pike, with adjustments better hit the target populations made elsewhere along the borders.
