McKay: Springfield Mall is Safe for Shoppers
Poll shows shoppers aren't so sure.
Fairfax County’s Lee District Supervisor Jeff McKay thinks the Springfield Mall is still a safe place to shop, but he understands why some area residents might be too spooked to visit the half-empty facility.
A poll running now with the story on Rose Hill Patch shows about half of respondents say they do not feel safe at the mall, even though most of the crime there is shoplifting.
McKay believes pending redevelopment will help shoppers feel safer.
