Nova is the definition of a transient area. So many people move in because of white collar work, for the last 20 years NoVa has been different.
If Northern Virginia has its own forum- then so should Richmond!

NoVa houses an extremely large number of people. NoVa is built by several counties. Only one county above was named and it hosts over a million. Add in Prince William, Arlington, Loudon.... Nova hosts the Dulles Corridor which a few dozen big business call home. There is no way NoVa is given justice by grouping it with all the rest of Virginia. Like I said before, NoVA also hosts a huge number of transients. People get relocated to and from the area in large numbers. A boss transfers in from Texas lives in Ashburn and he gets relocated to Kansas. Meanwhile his house is rented to an interim VP from Cleveland. NoVA is like that and does deserve it's own board.

Yes. Considering the huge population and the number of threads that deal with NoVA. Absolutely.

Oh, yes, better keep NOVA away from old backwards Virginia. I mean, we're not Virginians, we're from DC!

Oh please. The people commuting in from Spotsylvania, Front Royal, Luray and Opal and Sumerduck and oh yeah, Charlestown.....those slots owe me big time, surely can post opinion on traffic, but really the forum would be for people looking to live in NoVa. Those places are not NoVa, they are the outskirts of rural VA or the outskirts of NoVa. A NoVa forum would deal with people moving right into the thick of the crap....NoVa is a big beautiful melting pot of nice people, rude people, neighbors that hate each other, neighbors that love each other and we all end up sitting on rt 50 for 2 hours to go 10 miles.....it's a mix in NoVA that works, that only those that "live" there can tell people about.... People in DC can attest to life in NoVA, those in SE and those in NE, both deal close to the place the proposed forum would deal with...shoot, DC maybe could be a part of NoVA as far as the forum deals with.....Everyone from NoVA trash men to truck drivers to admins to CEO's have dealings in DC.
As for rural VA, land and housing in rural VA is at a premium a good percentage of people cannot afford... If someone considers themselves a backwards Virginian, that's a shame. I personally think if you have a VA birth certificate, you're way ahead than anyone born to any other state.... I may not live in VA anymore, but I will always call it my home...and if I never get back there, I will always miss VA.
