Letter to Plan Comm-Oct 2019

Fairfax County Planning Commission, Fairfax, VA

Dear Chairman Murphy, Commissioner Hart, Commissioner Carter,

I am writing to urge you to vote to defer the Campus Commons proposal when it comes before you on Thursday, 10 October.  While this project has improved, it still contains significant flaws that are directly material to its readiness for consideration, especially since the developer is requesting final approval at this time and is slated to go before the Board of Supervisors less than one week later for a vote.

Write to protest Campus Commons

Today, one of our members wrote the attached letter to TF Cornerstone, the developer behind the Campus Commons project at Sunrise Valley and Wiehle, to protest their continuing pursuit of a 25 September hearing before the Fairfax Planning Commission.

Please write to the main TF Cornerstone VP in charge of community relations (Ms. Ebony Young) and also forward your email letter to the Fairfax County Planning Commission and Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.  Ask them to defer any hearing on this project until all community concerns have been addressed.

Here’s the letter, posted as a Word doc in case you’d like to cut and paste the info into your own letter and in your own words.

Letter to TF Cornerstone

Thank you for all you do for Reston!
