For the last two years, Supervisor Alcorn has led a task force of mostly Reston community residents to revamp the Reston Comprehensive Plan.  The task force has approved a final draft plan and now the county and RCA are reaching out to the community for their input on the plan.

According to the Reston Patch, the following meetings are already lined up to review different aspects of the plan:
