Fairfax Planners Have Quick Guide to Village Center Ideas

CVS at South Lakes Village Center Before you attend Saturday’s Reston Master Plan Phase II meeting, take a look at what residents had to say at the last meeting, on Oct. 18.

Fairfax County has taken the feedback and condensed it into a pros-and-cons packages for each of Reston’s village centers.

See the entire pros-and-cons summary here.

Fairfax County planners are in the process of obtaining community feedback about Reston’s neighborhoods and village centers. This will help guide planning in the event that Reston — which is expected to grow with the arrival of Metro — wants to expand or re-renvision its village centers and surrounding neighborhoods.

There is a “strawman” working draft as a guide, but the county welcomes community feedback before there is a final version. Fairfax County planning staff says it hopes to have the final Phase II document drafted by mid-2015.

Whatever changes — if any — are incorporated into the plan will not be a regulatory document and any structural changes will have to eventually go through the Reston Association’s Design Review Board, as well as county planning and zoning and the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.

Saturday’s meeting, at Aldrin Elementary School at 8:45 a.m., will further discuss the village centers, particularly alternate sues for the half-empty Tall Oaks Village Center, as well as the future of the Baron Cameron retail area at Reston Parkway and Baron Cameron Avenue.
