Community Forum to Review Master Plan

With the Reston Master Plan Special Study Task Force work nearing completion, Supervisor Cathy Hudgins (D-Hunter Mill) is hosting a community meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 22, 7 p.m., to review the draft language for the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan. The plan will guide development around the three transit station areas in Reston through 2030. The meeting will be held at South Lakes High School, Lecture Hall, 11400 South Lakes Drive, Reston.

In 2010 Supervisor Hudgins initiated Phase I of the Reston Comprehensive Plan study, appointing a task force of 25 individuals, organization representatives and landowners. The Reston Master Plan Special Study Task Force was chaired by Patricia Nicoson. Numerous Task Force and special community meetings were held, generating energetic and spirited discussions.

Supervisor Hudgins invites all interested Reston residents to join the discussion. The Task Force has been meeting for nearly three years to create plan language that will guide the land use and zoning growth around the Metro stations.

To reserve space or for questions regarding the meeting, contact Goldie Harrison, Hunter Mill District office at 703-478-0283.
