Learn About Reston's Future! Community Forum This Thursday

Is Reston’s quality of life important to you?  Wondering what effects the development around the Silver Line will have on our community?

In the next two decades, Reston will almost double in size due to the development around the new Metro stations.

  • 40,000 new corridor residents
  • 62,000 new jobs (bringing commuters)
  • Parks, sports fields lacking in plans & developer proffers
  • Traffic gridlock mornings and evenings
There are grave concerns about whether we'll get the needed road improvements, parks, sports fields, and more.  The window is closing fast on holding the developers accountable in these areas.  It’s not too late, but we need YOUR input before the Comprehensive Plan is adopted by the Planning Commission in November.

Come to the Community Meeting on the Phase One Comprehensive Plan for Reston.  This meeting is co-sponsored by the Reston Citizens Association (RCA), Reston Association, and the Alliance of Reston Clusters and Homeowners (ARCH).

This is your chance to find out what changes may be coming, and what those changes will mean for Reston – good and bad.  You’ll also be able to make your voice heard on Reston’s future development, and we’ll tell you what you can do to get involved.
