New Land Use Process for Reston
Supervisor Hudgins introduced a new Land Use Process, Reston Land Use Launch, at the Reston Planning and Zoning meeting on Monday, October 17. This new step in the local land use process is an attempt to share these proposals with the larger community earlier in the land use process and afford an earlier opportunity for community engagement.
After applications are officially accepted by the County, Supervisor Hudgins will then coordinate the Reston Planning and Zoning committee to schedule a public informational meeting. This will give the community notice of pending applications earlier in the land use process. Notifications will be published in the Hunter Mill Highlights newsletter, eBlast, and Hunter Mill Facebook. Contact Goldie Harrison at the Hunter Mill District office for information.
