Summary Notes from Reston Focus Groups, July-October 2008, Fairfax County Department of Planning & Zoning

In mid-2008, the Fairfax County Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) conducted a series of nine focal groups with Reston civic leaders about the Reston Master Plan as directed by Hunter Mill District Supervisor Cathy Hudgins and the Board of Supervisors. Virtually all Reston civic groups participated, including representatives from:
-- Alliance of Reston Clusters and Homeowners (ARCH)
-- Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce
-- Reston Association (RA) Board
-- RA Design Review Board
-- RA Transportation Advisory Committee
-- RA Planning and Zoning Committee
-- Reston Citizen Association (RCA)
-- Reston Community Center (RCC)
-- Working Alliance of Town Center Homeowners (WATCH)
The DPZ also took comments from residents who observed the focus group sessions.

The enclosed document, also available at the County's Reston Master Plan study site, provides a compilation of the comments made during those nine sessions. It is an important listing of what Restonians think about Reston and how its future ought to be addressed. It illustrates the range of issues and opportunities Restonians see for Reston's future and is good background for anyone participating in the ongoing Comprehensive Plan review process. The notes present an impressive understanding of Reston now and imagination, vision, and concern about its future.
