Thank you, Reston!

To all the wonderful Restonians and other neighbors in our broader Fairfax community, we want to extend our deepest appreciation for your support over the past two years against the proposed zoning amendment that would have increased the density cap in our Planned Residential Community (PRC) area.  Your many letters and phone calls to members of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission, your participation in the community meetings held in Reston, including the pivotal October 2017 public meeting at South Lakes High School, Continue reading “Thank you, Reston!”

PRC zoning amendment hearing CANCELLED

At today’s Board of Supervisors meeting, Hunter Mill District Supervisor Cathy Hudgins moved that the BOS defer indefinitely consideration of the proposed zoning amendment for the Reston PRC plan regulations. The Board concurred.

Now that the PRC zoning amendment has been deferred indefinitely, there is no longer a meeting to attend tonight. The BOS will be considering other issues, but Reston’s PRC zoning is no longer among them.

We will continue to keep all of you informed on the latest developments on the PRC.

Thank you again for your support for our planned community!

Breaking news on the Reston PRC zoning amendment!

It has just been confirmed that Supervisor Hudgins will be bringing forward a motion to “Indefinitely Defer” the proposed Reston PRC Zoning Amendment that was scheduled for public hearing tomorrow March 5, 2019.

If this motion is made and passed, the Amendment essentially will be killed, but we cannot be sure at this time.

This motion is expected to occur during the Board Matters portion of the meeting, usually late morning. All meetings are televised on Channel 16streamed live online and available to view on demand following the meeting.

CPR will communicate with the community about the final status of the zoning amendment as soon as the Board of Supervisors votes on the motion to defer.

If things go as we hope, the community can cancel their plans to attend the Public Hearing.

Stay tuned, and thank you!

Thanks, CPR supporters! (Plus, another P&Z meeting!)

Hello CPR supporters!

I’m posting the agenda for Monday evening’s Reston P&Z meeting (6.25.18 P and Z agenda) but wanted to share some additional thoughts.

First, for all who attended last Monday’s P&Z meeting (18 June), please accept our heartfelt thanks. Someone who attends regularly said there are usually only 4-5 residents present at these meetings. But Monday at least 15 people were there, including several up on the front Continue reading “Thanks, CPR supporters! (Plus, another P&Z meeting!)”
