July 25, 2023 Board Matter: Reston Transit Station Area SSPAs and Comprehensive Plan Amendment Work Program


As the Board is aware, we adopted a new Comprehensive Plan Amendment Work Program in April of this year. In Hunter Mill, there are ten Site-Specific Plan Amendment nominations identified as “Tier 3” reviews and noted together on the work program as the Reston TSA study. These were placed on the work program in a deferred status until completion of the Reston Plan amendment, at which point development of a formal schedule and the review of these areas would begin.

As the Board is aware, due to recent changes in state code affecting public hearings, the Reston Plan amendment public hearing will be held before the Board of Supervisors on September 12, rather than today as originally scheduled.

While the ultimate outcome of each of these SSPA nominations is still to be determined, there are common themes across the nominations in Reston that would greatly benefit from staff research and analysis that has not yet started. In order for staff to begin this important preliminary work on these nominations prior to the pending adoption of the Reston Plan amendment, I propose that we move these items from Tier 3 to Tier 1 on the Work Program.



Therefore Mr. Chairman, in order for important preliminary staff work to commence, I move that the Comprehensive Plan Amendment Work Program be revised to include the items identified as “Reston TSA Study” items—CPN22-HM-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, and 14—as Tier 1 items
