Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn will hold a town hall on Thursday, July 27, at 7 p.m. at the North County Governmental Center, 1801 Cameron Glen Dr., Reston, ahead of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors public hearing on the Reston Comprehensive Plan Amendment, (RCP) scheduled for Sept 12.
County staff and Planning Commissioner John Carter, who represents the Hunter Mill District that includes Reston, will discuss and answer questions about the plan amendment at the July 27 meeting. On July 19, 2023, the Fairfax County Planning Commission recommended that the Board of Supervisors adopt the Reston Comprehensive Plan Amendment as modified.
During the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, July 11, Alcorn said that due to new State statutory amendments (Code of Virginia, § 15.2-1427 regarding public notice and hearing requirements), the County needed to adjust the public hearing schedules on several items, including the proposed RCP. Changes to the Code force the county to reschedule its public hearings on the plan into September.
The good news for Reston residents, Alcorn said at the Board meeting, was that they would have more opportunities to provide additional comment, at Town Hall on July 27, via email and telephone on the mark-up of the plan in late August through early September 2023, and finally at the Board’s public hearing on Sept. 12, 2023.
