The Coalition for a Planned Reston (CPR) is proud to announce that SOS (Save Our Sunrise),
also known as Rescue Sunrise Valley, has joined CPR as an official member.

SOS quickly mobilized to protect their established neighborhood, located adjacent to the Wiehle
transit station area (TSA), from developer over-reach that would shatter their privacy and quality
of life.%SOS has endeavored to work with Campus Commons developer, TF Cornerstone*, who
initially neglected to include them in the required affected neighbor notification. SOS and all of
CPR, will continue to urge TF Cornerstone to modify its plans in order to satisfy the letter and
spirit of the Reston Master Plan.% To help attain that imperative goal, CPR’s entire membership
stands ready to address any and all Campus Common shortfalls.

CPR acknowledges that incomplete county planning has resulted in disastrous gridlock in the
entire Wiehle/Sunrise/Sunset area and that TF Cornerstone is not solely responsible for ‘fixing’
the situation.% HOWEVER, the success of their project and indeed all the Wiehle TSA depends
on their full and earnest cooperation to ameliorate the cumulative effects of huge density in a
condensed area. CPR and SOS particularly will advocate for a clear plan to enable new TSA
community members safely to access the Metro station across an already congested Wiehle
Ave.% Other major stakeholders with whom TF Cornerstone and county staff must collaborate
include Comstock, which owns the two western quadrants of the Dulles Toll Road/Wiehle and
JBG who own Midline, the NE quadrant.%

Welcome, SOS, to the CPR family.  We look forward to supporting you as we link arms to
promote a sustainable functioning One Reston!

*Note: TF Cornerstone is a for-profit developer not to be confused with Cornerstones, a local
non-profit, social services support organization.
