Check out this article in The Patch that cites data by realtor Eve Thompson and suggests that the flood of new development may be behind it. (Here’s her original post in Reston Now with more details.)

PRC Zoning Amendment Update

This is a message from the Coalition for a Planned Reston (CPR), a volunteer group of residents from the Reston Citizens Association, Reclaim Reston, and Reston 20/20, who are concerned with planning and zoning issues that threaten our planned, diverse and welcoming community. 

Winter has arrived with a fury and the struggle continues to stop Fairfax County’s effort to pass a zoning amendment increasing the density of Reston. Here is an update of what you may have missed during the holidays:
