INVITATION: Reston 2020 Committee Looking for Working Group Volunteers

Enclosed for your information is an invitation from Reston 2020 Committee Co-Chair Richard Stillson to participate in the planning for Reston's future. As noted, the Reston 2020 committee is creating several working groups to look at key Reston development issues to assist the ongoing Reston Master Plan Special Study Task Force. Here are the details:

The Reston 2020 Committee is a committee of the Reston Citizens Association which monitors land use planning in Reston. Currently, we are most involved with monitoring and helping the Task Force of the Reston Master Plan Special Study. As a way to better educate ourselves and provide a way for many people to participate in the planning process, we are forming working groups concerning several important areas that the Task Force will be considering. These are:

• Transportation;
• Environment;
• Parks, Recreation and Public Facilities;
• Residential and Urban Design, and Livability.

We hope the groups will read studies concerning their topics that have been done on other areas, beginning with the Tyson’s Corner Planning Task Force, invite outside experts to obtain their views, and organize field trips to inspect and better understand the areas affected by the planning. They will work closely with the advisory committees of the Reston Association who are working on similar topics. They will prepare brief written reports and presentations on what they learn and provide the Task Force with their views.

We hope that you may be interested in participating in one of the groups. They will meet at least once per month and will be chaired by a member of the 2020 Committee. It will require some commitment of time and effort over the next several months but it will be well worth it to be able to contribute to the planning process. Please e-mail me by February 19 if you are interested and state which of the groups you would like to join. Thank you.

Dick Stillson
Co-Chair, RCA’s Reston 2020 Committee
