U.S. Army officials are considering a developer's proposal to create a military theme park, hotel and entertainment district near Fort Belvoir. The plan is billed as possibly drawing a million tourists a year. The Post's story is here.
There are 22,000 new jobs coming to the fort and triggering new traffic concerns. What do you think about the theme park idea?
