Save the Date: Work Sessions Scheduled for PRC Proposal in July

by RestonNow.com June 29, 2018 at 2:30 pm 8 Comments

Amid concerns about a proposal to increase Reston’s population density in the Planned Residential Community district, the county is kicking off a series of work sessions with stakeholders this month.

The meetings will address four areas of concern highlighted by Reston Association and the Coalition for a Planned Reston, a grassroots umbrella organization. The concerns were voiced and rebuffed in letters to the Fairfax County’s Department of Planning and Zoning earlier this year.

The schedule for the work sessions, which each focus on one subject area, is below. Each session will be held at 6 p.m.:

  • July 17 (Transportation): 12005 Sunrise Valley Drive
  • July 18 (Parks and Recreation): 12005 Sunrise Valley Drive
  • July 24 (Schools, Infrastructure, Fire and Rescue):  12001 Sunrise Valley Drive
  • July 30 (Planning):  12001 Sunrise Valley Drive

      Hudgins and the developers

  • Evey Hammond

    Please don’t just complain in the comments. Go to the meeting and be heard there.

      Hudgins and her tame FC Planning Department are deaf to constituents
      Thats a proven fact

      LOL! You earnestness entertains me. I think it will amuse the Board and their “stakeholders” as well.

    Contrary to the cynics commenting on this article, I would like to encourage Restonians to attend the meetings–preferably all of them, but certainly the ones in which you have a specific interest. First, it will give an opportunity to learn about the issue under discussion. Second, it will show you the county’s (lack of) response to the concerns CPR and RA have expressed about the proposed PRC zoning amendment. Third, it may give you an opportunity to insert your own questions & comments about the proposal, the process, and the county’s thinking.

    It is really important that Restonians stand together on this matter or we will certainly lose the Reston we love. Ben Franklin said it clearly, “We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.” It’s your Reston. Let’s move forward with an evolving Reston that meets the needs of residents as well as developers.
