Patch to Expand to Tysons Corner
Patch will launch a new Tysons Corner site in August.
We heard your requests for a Patch website in the Tysons Corner area, and we're responding!
Patch plans to launch a new site for the Tysons Corner community in late August.
With a growing population and major infrastructure and business development in progress, Tysons Corner residents and businesses will receive more local news coverage and a platform for community information and engagement.
Patch, a community-specific news, information and engagement platform, launched in Virginia in 2010. Patch.com currently reaches residents and businesses across 30 websites in our area from Leesburg to D.C. and as far south as Fredericksburg (and closer to home, in Vienna, McLean, Oakton, Reston and Falls Church).
With the addition of Tysons Corner Patch, this raises the number of Patch.com sites in Northern Virginia and the District to 31 — with more on the way later this year.
Patch started in 2008 with three sites in New Jersey and has grown to more than 850 sites nationwide. Patch is owned by AOL.
It Starts Now
