April 10, 2018

Dear Madam Supervisor:

We are writing on behalf of Coalition for a Planned Reston regarding the status of your commitment to facilitate working sessions with CPR and County staff. We are aware that you informed Leadership Fairfax that the County would be “moving forward” with zoning density amendment, and request your clarification whether this means that you are withdrawing your willingness to proceed with the process discussed in our meeting of February 13.

CPR was established to help educate the residents of the greater Reston community about issues that directly affect our lives — and the lives of our children and grandchildren.

CPR leaders interviewed on density concerns

This interview, posted on the Reston2020 blog and on YouTube, is with three of our key leaders in the Coalition for a Planned Reston: Bruce Ramo (Reclaim Reston), Dennis Hays (Reston Citizens Association), and Terry Maynard (Reston2020).

In this video, they explain in detail and with clarity the core issues of concern with the ongoing development and the proposal that Fairfax County’s Board of Supervisors increase the density cap in Reston’s planned residential community from 13 to 16. The impact is significant on our quality of life, transportation infrastructure, school overcrowding, and loss of green space, all of which were part of Reston’s original core design values.

This is 60 minutes long but is well worth watching.
