Offer Feedback on Future Land Use Near Wiehle Avenue Metro Station
March 10, 2010
As part of the Reston Master Plan Special Study, the public can offer input about future land use around the Wiehle Avenue Metro station on Saturday, March 20, at 9 a.m. The public workshop will be held at the Langston Hughes Middle School cafeteria, 11401 Ridge Heights Road, Reston. The draft agenda for this workshop is available online.
It is envisioned that future development in this area should take advantage of its proximity to Metro while preserving nearby neighborhoods.
Because this workshop focuses on land use for this entire area, it will
not include discussion about the proposed county-owned, park-and-ride
garage and mixed use development at Wiehle Avenue.
The Reston Master Plan Task Force will develop recommendations for future land use for the Dulles Corridor. This includes the areas around the future Wiehle Avenue, Reston Parkway and Herndon-Monroe Metro stations, as well as Reston Town Center. Community workshops will be conducted for each of these areas, so the public can offer their input. Public hearings also will be held later this year on the overall recommendations for the corridor.
The task force is scheduled to present its recommendations this summer and they will be sent to the Fairfax County Planning Commission for review this fall. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will then vote on whether to include the recommendations in the Comprehensive Plan for the corridor.
Materials from previous workshops are available online.
