Commentary: Master Plan Task Force in Election Year Stall, Reston Patch, June 4, 2011, John Lovaas

In mid-2009, Fairfax County told us reviewing and revising Reston’s original Master Plan was a priority matter.

In fact, a couple of years earlier the county’s planning chief had told a Reston audience that revising the Plan was urgent.  Reston was vulnerable, he said, because the original Master Plan with its density “blobs” drawn when Reston was all meadows left the community vulnerable to high density development where it no longer made sense. . . .

Here we are in June 2011.  Is the revised Master Plan complete?

No. In fact, the Task Force is still in Phase One in what appears to be a holding pattern.  . . .
