January 21, 2021 – Reston, VA – The Reston Citizens Association (RCA) Board of Directors has adopted a set of Resolutions intended to outline community concerns with the latest draft of the Zoning Ordinance Modernization  (“zMOD”) project and the specific implications to Reston’s planned community.

In a statement, RCA President, Dennis Hays said, “RCA has carefully followed the progress of the County staff’s proposals in the zMOD project. We believe the Staff has gone far beyond the intended purpose of zMOD, proposing far reaching changes with little to no consideration as to the impact such changes would have on established communities.  

“Accordingly, the Board of RCA is compelled to join with civic and citizens’ associations from every corner of the County in opposing this draft of zMOD and we have adopted the attached Resolution at our meeting this past Monday.  As noted, we strongly urge the extraneous provisions of zMOD be removed  Should there be further interest, the appropriate place to ensure community involvement would be during any future consideration of a phase II of zMOD.”

Concerned citizens may wish to contact the Fairfax County Planning Commission (plancom@fairfaxcounty.gov) and the Board of Supervisors (ClerktotheBOS@fairfaxcounty.gov) to express their opinions on this issue. 

RCA’s Resolution follows this news release.
