Planning Commission Rejects Cap Increase

On Wednesday evening the Planning Commission voted to recommend that the Fairfax Board of Supervisors not approve the proposed zoning amendment to increase the density cap for the Reston Planned Residential Community (PRC) areas. While the Board of Supervisors has the discretion to ignore the Planning Commission’s recommendation, CPR is hopeful that the Board of Supervisors will agree, and implement recommendations by the Commission to engage the public further.

The Planning Commission’ recommendations reflect the sense of the Reston community, through your letters, emails, phone calls, and direct participation in opposition to the density increase. Clearly the future of Reston as a planned community relies on engaged citizens. CPR will continue to keep you informed about the density cap issue and appreciates the commitment of Restonians to the values of our community: diversity, environmental stewardship, and quality of life for all.
