Give Feedback on Future Land Use Near Reston Parkway Metro Station
April 7, 2010
As part of the Reston Master Plan Special Study, the public is encouraged to offer input about future land use around the Reston Parkway Metro station on Saturday, April 17, 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.
The workshop will focus on future residential and commercial development within a half-mile of this station. It is envisioned that future development in this area should take advantage of its proximity to Metro while preserving nearby neighborhoods.
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, Reston Parkway, and Reston Town Center Metro stations. Community workshops about these areas are being used to gather public input, and the final workshop will be held on May 22 about the Reston Town Center. 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.
