The Reston Master Plan Special Study  

Reston Area Study  

The Reston Master Plan Special Study is a two-phase planning study to identify appropriate changes to the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan to help guide future development in the planned community of Reston and adjoining areas located along the Dulles Airport Access and Toll Road (the Dulles Corridor). Phase I of the Study proposed updates to the Comprehensive Plan for the Reston-Herndon Suburban Center and the areas around the planned Wiehle-Reston East, Reston Town Center and Herndon Metrorail stations. Phase I concluded with the Fairfax County Board of Supervisor's adoption of the Reston Transit Stations Comprehensive Plan amendment on February 11, 2014. Learn more about the first phase of the Study by reading this fantastic Phase I summary brochure and then visiting the Phase I website.

Phase II of the Study will propose Fairfax Comprehensive Plan text pertaining to the wider Reston community including the residential neigborhoods, Village Centers, Convenience Centers, and commercial area north of Baron Cameron (just north of Reston Town Center). See the Phase II study area.

The Study is now in Phase II. Fairfax County staff and the Office of Supervisor Hudgins hosted an Open House on Saturday, June 7th to introduce the Phase II planning process, accept community comments, and provide the community with an opportunity to ask questions of staff from numerous county agencies. Agencies represented included Planning Division, Transportation Planning Division, Fairfax Park Authority, and the Office of Community Revitalization.

Additional meetings have been conducted to present and discuss draft Reston Master Plan text. Visit the Meetings page to learn more.
