RE: Application #A 2012-HM-020

Began 48 years ago when Gulf Land, as the developer of
Reston, was in charge.
Reston Planning & Zoning evolved from an RCA
committee. RCA’s
position is that the use of
RNGC land is as a golf course.
In February 2014 the BoS adopted phase I of the
Reston Master Plan which calls for reliance on greater Reston’s existing public
and private park and recreational facilities in order to meet
Service Level Standards for Urban Parks as defined in Appendix 3 of the
Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan.
These Park and Recreation Service Level Standards are
based on both population and employees
County Service Level Standard calls for 1 hole of golf for every 3,200 persons.
With the planned population growth of both residents and employees in Reston,
we currently have the required 36 holes, with it being so important that 18 of
them are a public course – Reston National.
is clear that our County Supervisors are counting on Reston’s Golf Courses to
provide active recreation for the incoming residents and employees of the
Reston Transit Station Areas, as well as the region.

Until this appeal was
filed, no one ever considered Reston National Golf Course to be
anything other than a golf course.  Our
Board of Supervisors was and is relying on Reston’s privately owned recreation
areas to contribute to the planned growth of this community.
