Fort Belvoir to create 8,500 new Jobs

Released today as well was the announcement that Fort Belvoir, located 23 miles South of DC, will be hiring 8,500 new employees based solely in their Engineering Proving Ground. Unfortunately the hiring comes amidst the change of the original 18,500 that were projected to be hired in our area.

Keep this in mind when the total hiring quota is 12,000, due mainly from the base realignment. What would you say if I said the surrounding area near the base is 85% single family homes and residential areas?
