Last Friday was the deadline to submit comments for Phase II
of the Reston Master Plan Special Study. Terry Maynard summed up the thoughts
we hear most often in his cover letter to the County:
“A theme that runs throughout these coordinated comments is
that Restonians generally like suburban Reston the way that it is and believe
few changes should be made.”  He
continues: “We offer some flexibility in the village center mixed-use
areas.  We also lay out some general requirements for any future
redevelopment.  All of our ideas are driven by the Reston Vision and
Planning Principles approved by the Reston Task Force and incorporated in the
Comprehensive Plan.”
Read the ideas
about planning needs for Phase 2 of the Reston Master Planning effort from RCA’s
independent committee, Reston 2020.
Rescue Reston submitted comments
also. Reston National Golf Course is not the focus of the Phase II study, but
it is a good opportunity to publicly thank our County Supervisors for their
support to date. It also allows us to remind developers how positive it is to
have this tax-free amenity so close to Reston residents and office workers.
