Population and Geography based on 2020 census
Why was my previous comment deleted? Overall, the map is not representative of the electorate. It deletes the Democratically held Senate seat of John Edwards in SW Virginia and gerrymanders districts in NOVA to protet incumbents. Currently Alexandria is represented by three senators due to gerrymandering. Our two delegates also serve Arlington and Fairfax. The map should be drawn to allow Alexandria to have at least one delegate whose sole focus is Alexandria.

I prefer the boundaries of District 3 in concepts A1/A2 to those in the B series. A1/A2 more closely conforms to the current House of Delegates District 49 and keeps more of the Columbia Pike corridor, a significant community of interest in S Arlington and Fairfax, together.
Moving the line to Braddock Road would effectively remove Rosemont from the 45th which is a terrible idea. Rosemont and Del Ray are intertwined communities. I would note that some of the comments to move the line to Braddock are politically motivated due to the outcome of the primary in the 45th, which resulted in a clear loss of an incumbent. The lines are well drawn at the present time for the 2nd district.

Districts 1 and 2 need to shift a litte. The dividing line should move slightly east and north so that homes assigned to school districts are kept together. The Scroggins Road/Timberbranch Parkway area of Alexandria should be in the 46th HoD, not the 45th. Move the line to Braddock Road.
Although I applaud the drawing of 3 (rather than 4) House districts for Arlington (with two of them entirely within the County), much of the details are puzzling. North Arlington District 5 should include Dominion Hills, Madison Manor, Ballston, Bluemont and Virginia Square neighborhoods. We all use the metro stations in Ballston and Virginia Square and eat and shop throughout the Ballston Corridor (East Falls Church to Rosslyn at the Potomac River). South Arlington (District 4) appears to split the neighborhoods in the Columbia Pike corridor. As mentioned earlier, those neighborhoods center on the Columbia Pike transportation corridor (ART bus 16) with its vibrant shopping and dining areas. Please reconsider these districts.
I like the inclusion of the Fairlington section of Arlington which becomes an integral part of a District dominated by Arlington.
I'd prefer to see districts that are as round as possible. If that's impossible, the A2 boundaries seem less "gerrymandered" and suspicious to me than the B2.
A reasonable map for District 14 that keeps together similar communities. The deviation from the target population overall for the A2 map appears to be less than the B2 map, which is good.
wrt the boundaries as drawn here, this is a District that is well represented for transportation, land use and regulation issues
Putting Pentagon City and Crystal City in the same district as North Arlington is very strange. These two areas are incredibly different and far apart.
It would make more sense for the communities of South Riding/Willowsford South/Middleburg (running along Route 50 and Braddock Road) be in the same District while Brambleton/Ashburn (running along Route 7) be in another. It takes 40+ minutes to drive from South Riding to Route 7 on a good day. District 26 is far too geographically spread out given the density of population in that part of Loudoun County. Also -- keeping Leesburg in the same District as the area of Loudoun County west of Route 15 does not make sense. They are two completely different communities of interest. (District 29).
Please do not split up Tysons Corner into 3 districts (14, 15, and 6). Tysons Corner, Virginia needs to be in the same district, much like all of the other CDPs in Fairfax County. Please Keep Tysons Corner together!
I don't like how Tysons is carved up into many districts and partially placed in the same district as Vienna (14). Even though it might not look as aesthetically pleasing, Vienna and Tysons are very different communities with conflicting interests and should be separated as such. Instead this district should be pushed southward, preferably either GMU or Jason Morgan's suggestion.

Proposed District 14 appears to be an improvement over existing District 35. That being said, this region of District 6, extending east to I-495 and extending south to either route 29 or route 50, should probably be part of District 14. There is quite a bit of a break in the communities around Route 29 that are east and west of I-495, so I think the benefit of keeping them together in a single district is limited. The north/south ties here are stronger than the east/west ties, thus warranting putting this region into District 14.
This is a beautiful map

This is a good grouping of neighborhoods that have many commercial and cultural links. It would be nice to include GMU with more of the neighborhoods where staff members live, but it's more important to keep the university in one district.
I like the A maps better than the B maps. This map does a much better job keeping communities of interest together and is relatively compact. I also appreciate that this map creates two potential Asian opportunity districts in Districts 26 and 17. I ask that you keep these districts as Asian opportunity districts and potentially increase the Asian population inside of them. While there are issues that can be addressed with these maps, I also ask that the Commission use this map as its baseline.
House District 32, not Senate. Once again, a nice representative district that will benefit the area.
I represent the Salem District of Culpeper County as a member of the Board of Supervisors. District 32 looks good to me. I very much like Culpeper and Madison having a single representative in the Virginia Senate.
This map effectively keeps the community of Western Fairfax or Centreville/Chantilly intact.
