Plan Seeks to Revive North Woodbridge With Dense Development
(Washington Post) — Woodbridge resident John Karhnak said he remembers when his neighborhood was vibrant and home to a host of businesses. He remembers when the Marumsco shopping plaza was crowded and difficult to navigate.
Now it is a different story.
Instead of a sea of cars at the shopping plaza, maybe a couple of dozen are parked outside the few discount stores left in the mostly vacant center. The rest of the Route 1 stretch through north Woodbridge is dotted with car repair shops, vacant buildings and deserted properties.
