What is an “Affected Party”?
An Affected Party is any owner of property subject to the Reston Deed whose believes that their property will be materially impacted by an applicant’s proposed change. Affected Parties can present information related to an application during a DRB Panel meeting. Affected Parties are also notified about DRB decisions and other actions related to the application, and about applicant appeals of DRB decisions. Affected Parties may also file appeals of DRB decisions.
To register as an Affected Party, check the appropriate box when signing the application to note your intent to register as an Affected Party, and within 5 days of signing the application, submit to the DRB staff, a written statement of your concerns about the project.
