Give Feedback on Future Land Use in Northern Reston Town Center
May 4, 2010
As part of the Reston Master Plan Special Study, the public is encouraged to offer input about future land use in the northern part of the Reston Town Center on Saturday, May 22, 9 to 11:30 a.m. The public workshop will be held at the Langston Hughes Middle School cafeteria, 11401 Ridge Heights Road, Reston.
The workshop will focus on future residential and commercial development in the area near the Reston Regional Library, North County Governmental Center and INOVA Cameron Glen Care Center. It is envisioned that future development in this area should take be more complementary to the Reston Town Center.
Attendees will learn about current land use in this area and participate in small group discussions.
Public comments will help guide the Reston Master Plan Task Force as it develops recommendations for future land use for the Dulles Corridor. This includes the areas around the future Wiehle Avenue, Herndon-Monroe, and Reston Parkway Metro stations, as well as Reston Town Center. Community workshops about these areas are to gather public 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 in the fall and they will be sent to the Fairfax County Planning Commission for review early next year. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will then vote on whether to include the recommendations in the Comprehensive Plan for the corridor.
The draft agenda for the May 22 workshop, materials from previous workshops and public comments are available online.
