PRC Amendment Workgroup Sessions Begin This Week

by RestonNow.com July 16, 2018 at 2:00 pm 5 Comments

Fairfax County officials begin small workgroup sessions with representatives this week to discuss a controversial plan to increase Reston’s population density in areas targeted for growth.

The sessions are hosted by the Coalition for a Planned Reston, a grassroots organization and Reston Association. Staff from the Fairfax County Department of Planning and Zoning and Fairfax County Public Schools will be on hand to discuss questions.

The plan would increase density in Reston’s Planned Residential Community areas from 13 to 16 persons per acre. CPR and RA have opposed the plan, as proposed, amid concerns about the overall impact on infrastructure.

The schedule for the meetings is below. All workgroup meetings start at 6 p.m.

  • July 17 – Transportation – 12005 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston – Terrace Level (Live stream is not available. Recording will be uploaded).
  • July 18 – Parks and Open Space – 12005 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston – Terrace Level

    This site is going down hill fast. This is the first article written by RestonNow today; after a weekend. In spite of everything going on around Reston, and having just come off a weekend, there is apparently nothing to write about. Just sponsored content and a collection of news from other sites until 2:00pm. Sad. There has to be a middle school student around somewhere looking for part-time summer employment that could contribute something new and original, isn’t there?

      The vast majority of the “news” here are press releases.

    Agree, this site is becoming very boring. There is no original reporting nor is there anything other than reprints or links from other news sources….. Well I guess the opinion pieces from Kenny P are always fun.

      I am doing my best to add value. I mean I paraphrased Quint in Jaws. Heck we even had someone quote Bukowski last week! Together we can MRNGA.
