The Reston Comprehensive Plan Study Task Force is scheduled to wrap up its review process this summer following a yearlong effort and more than two dozen meetings. Its recommendations will then be shared for feedback at town hall meetings and dialogues with stakeholders such as homeowner associations, community organizations and business groups.
Since May 2020, the Reston Comprehensive Plan Study Task Force members have been working diligently, with the support of the county’s Department of Planning and Development, to review and propose updates to key elements of the Comprehensive Plan including the planned balance of ongoing redevelopment, infrastructure and the environment across all of Reston.
Topic areas under review include:
- Planning Principles
- Parks & Open Space
- Village Center Density
- Public Art
- Public Health
- Affordable Housing
The review process of the Reston Comprehensive Plan was initiated in January 2020 by Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn and approved by the Board of Supervisors for additional study and community input.
“The review process has been somewhat slowed by the pandemic, but I am very excited by the work and the collaboration by the task force, as well as county agencies including the Department of Planning and Development and Department of Transportation, among others. We still have several months of work ahead, but I believe the outcome will reaffirm Restonians’ decision to live in a planned, equity-focused community,” noted Supervisor Alcorn.
