Restonians will have the chance to take a peek at new development ideas for their town.

Reston’s Phase II Open House will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. June 7 at United Christian Parish Church to introduce plans for town center redevelopment and some residential areas.

Supervisor Cathy Hudgins and the county Department of Planning and Zoning will be hosting the event at 11508 North Shore Drive.

“I think the most important point of Phase II is to have everyone in the community engaged,” said Hudgins. “This will be more about walking around and talking than speeches and presentations.”

Phase I focused on the areas surrounding the future Metrorail line. Phase II focuses on the wider Reston community.

She said the plans are not final - this is just a way to get public feedback and introduce the phase.

She said because Lake Anne village center already has its own revitalization plan, it will not be a part of Phase II.

“There are other village centers that have failed, and they need to be looked at,” she said.

She said she expects this phase to be developed over the next year before it goes before the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors for approval.

“It won’t take four-and-a-half years, that’s for certain,” she said. “I think it will be a very engaging experience.”

Reston Citizens Association President Ken Knueven said members of RCA will be at the open house to look at some of the zoning and land changes that are being proposed.

“I think with Phase II, there is a lot coming,” he said. “Stay tuned, because RCA will be discussing it in the future.”
