Coalition for a Planned Reston Requests County to Hold Off on PRC Zoning Amendment

by RestonNow.com August 8, 2018 at 10:15 am 7 Comments

After a round of meetings with county officials about a plan to increase Reston’s population density, the Coalition for a Planned Reston is asking Fairfax County officials to hold off on officially proposing the amendment until specific issues raised in the meetings are addressed.

A series of workgroup sessions concluded on July 30 regarding the proposal, which would increase the overall per person density in Reston’s Planned Residential Community from 13 to 16 people per acre.

CPR is requesting the following actions, agreed upon by stakeholders involved in the discussions, go into effect:

“Clarification and correction of the Reston Master Plan (RMP), identification of additional information that the County intends to share with the public, and acknowledgment of areas that require further dialogue.”

No dates for the formal introduction of the proposal have been set yet. CPR plans to hold a community meeting after Labor Day to discuss the outcome of the county meetings and seek additional community feedback.

    It would seem prudent for county officials to hold off on planning for the future of Reston until Amazon decides where to locate its second headquarters. If Amazon chooses Northern Virginia, the future of the region would change dramatically.

      Jeff Bezos will be tickled to know that 90% of Reston voted democratic and with open arms to welcome Amazon HQ and their employees and contractors.

        Amazon is making a business decision. The company is considering red and blue locations. Having said that, Bezos has bought a mansion in DC. He might want to live close to the headquarters,

          or he may want to live close to political action when he runs for office

      Prudence is for wimps
      Just ask Hudgins, the deciderer of what happens

    Unless the Reston and CPR engages Hudgins on the political front, they don’t have a hope
    Lobby the Democratic local and State organization and express their discontent with Representative actions.

    Since PRC have already won the popular vote to rein development and it is an election year, they need to show the Democratic party that inaction is not an option and will hurt them at every level

    Ken Plum is part of the party and needs to be dragged into the debate
    It is well past the time for his sitting on the sidelines and whining “its not my job” while lecturing us about history and other matters

    Just as Hudgins and Plum’s jobs depend on the Democratic Party and they cannot ignore them, the Fairfax County Staff cannot stonewall the Supervisor and State delegate

    The season for political activity is on us. Lets use it to make a difference by contacting the Fairfax County Democratic Committee (FCDC) Headquarters: https://fairfaxdemocrats.org/about/contact/
