Founders Week Continues With Lecture on Reston’s Impact

by Karen Goff April 6, 2016 at 2:45 pm 0

 Reston’s Founders Week continues on Wednesday with this seminar:

The Future of the American Suburb: Lessons from Reston by Patrick Phillips, CEO of Urban Land Institute (ULI) at RCC Lake Anne, 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6. Free.

People who attend will hear about the impact Reston has had on suburban development. Phillips will discuss the special characteristics of Reston that have been influential in shaping other suburban communities across the U.S.

Organizers such as Reston Association, The Reston Historic Trust and Reston Community Center have expanded Reston’s traditional Founders Day into Founders Week for 2016. Reston founder Robert E. Simon died in September at age 101, and holding a whole week of tributes and events is a great way to honor him, organizers said.

Simon would have turned 102 on April 10.
