At this time, Reston has a 13 person per acre cap (maximum allowable density) on the community's population. With some 6,300 acres of area covered by Reston zoning, that works out to about 81,000 people allowed in Reston. Right now, Reston population sits at about 60,000 (the US Census American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year estimate for 2013 was 59,333). The Reston Master Plan, while offering no specific maximum at full development, suggests future population could exceed 100,000.
We do know, however, that the County zoning staff has discussed Reston zoning from documents we acquired from the Fairfax County website. Still, we don't know who it has met with to discuss re-zoning, but we offer below the two documents below from early this year that (a) show how the zoning calculations are made (Powerpoint presentation) and (b) an outline of the options that are available. We are pursuing more information from the County staff that we will share with you.
