A significant chapter in the battle to rezone the Reston National Golf Course came to an end Friday after attorneys for the golf course filed a letter with the Supreme Court of Virginia indicating they would not be pursuing an appeal of a Fairfax County Circuit Court decision from November.
RN Golf Management has been trying to create a path to rezoning the property for residential development since 2012. Reston Association, along with residents and the grassroots organization Rescue Reston, has been fighting to protect the land from development. While attorneys for the golf course said they might still “choose to pursue available development options in the future,” the decision to not take the case to the highest court in the state is a major victory for proponents of preserving open space.

On Nov. 6, 2015, the circuit court, in agreement with RA, vacated and voided an April 15, 2015, county Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) decision concerning the golf course. The motion for summary judgment was supported by the RA as well as individual homeowners and cluster associations abutting the golf course.
Legal representatives of Reston National Golf Course filed notice Dec. 22, 2015, indicating they would bring the ongoing land-use battle against RA and other individuals to the state's Supreme Court. That effort ended with the filing of today’s letter by RNGC attorneys.
