Here are the top Tysons Reporter stories of the year

2021 is almost over.

It’s been a topsy-turvy year, starting with the heartening, albeit sometimes tricky distribution of COVID-19 vaccines and ending with the grim uncertainty introduced by the omicron variant.

Fairfax County was beseiged by cicadas and controversy over its new police chief, overhauled its zoning code, and committed to reducing its carbon footprint. Students returned to in-person classes, while school board members faced — and survivedrecall campaigns.

In the Tysons area, notable developments included plenty of, well, development, from the approval of plans for McLean and West Falls Church to Capital One Hall’s arrival as a major performing arts venue. Tysons Corner Center hosted a mass vaccination center, and Tysons Galleria welcomed Black Santa to one store while revamping another.
