Commentary: On RTF's lack of progress, Reston Patch, John Lovaas, July 17, 2011

In his latest Reston Patch commentary, John Lovaas takes aim at the lack of progress in the Reston Task Force's work. 
The Reston Master Plan Special Study Task Force, the RMPSSTF to its really close friends, is a gang of 25 appointed by Hunter Mill District Supervisor Catherine Hudgins.

Most urgent, Hudgins rightly told her charges, was Phase One—planning for the three train stations-to-be currently zoned industrial. Phase One was to be complete and approved by the Fairfax Board of Lords by Summer 2010.  Phase Two, the other 6,000 acres of Reston, was to be done by the end of 2010.  You know, before the redevelopment gang levels it “by right."

The Task Force moniker alone, RMPSSTF, should have tipped us that timeliness was not to be the modus operandi of the developer-dominated group.

Sure enough,  here we are in the second half of 2011 and the conclusion of Phase One is not even in sight. . . .
