The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved a recommendation in January 2020 by Hunter Mill District Supervisor, Walter Alcorn, to initiate a process for additional study and community input on the 2017 Reston amendment of the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan. The plan review and community engagement process are expected to take 12-18 months. Residents will be able to provide feedback about the plan during public task force meetings.
Reston Association is represented on the 21-member task force by the Board of Directors secretary, John Mooney. RA COO, Larry Butler, is also involved with the task force as an alternate. At the conclusion of its work, the task force will provide a report to the Planning Commission and the county Board of Supervisors.

On Feb. 11, 2014, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors adopted an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan for the Transit Station Areas in Reston. This act was the culmination of a multi-year effort that included a Task Force and other forms of citizen outreach and engagement.
Following that, on June 2, 2015, the Reston Phase II Plan amendment (for Village Centers and Residential areas) was adopted by the board. That second Plan Amendment sought to align the recommendations in the Comprehensive Plan with the existing development in Reston.
Since that time, more than 30 re-zonings have been approved including millions of square feet of development in Reston’s transit station areas. And there has been a lot of discussion in the community about how Reston is changing, and how Reston should and should not change in the future. In reviewing the existing Comprehensive Plan, I believe that there are a few areas that would benefit from additional study and community input.
As such, I move that the board authorize a plan amendment for Reston that focuses on the following areas:
I further move that staff work closely with me to develop an approach and timeline for the plan amendment.
