Testing is slated to begin on Thursday (April 7). A small drill rig will be used to complete the work via the cluster’s parking lot.
The work is the last step required by Fairfax County to move forward with the field’s redevelopment. It’s also required prior to site plan approval.
Reston Association plans to repurpose the field into a more welcoming community area to activate the site.
A pathway is planned on the perimeter, along with a walkway that cuts through the entire area. Features include a rain garden, library book share, major landscaping, and mile markers throughout the site.
A groundbreaking date has not yet been determined. RA needs the county to approve the redevelopment plan, because it will affect a major area.
“Once this testing has been completed and hopefully is within requirements, RA should be cleared with an approved minor site plan,” RA spokesperson Mike Leone told FFXnow. “If not, we might have to reconfigure a few minor things in the design to bring it to code.”
RA worked with neighboring property owners and associations to reactivate the site, which has not been used to its fullest extent in past years. The Hunters Woods Neighborhood Coalition encouraged RA to repurpose the ball field, which is no longer used by the Reston-Herndon Little League.
Kimley-Horn Associates has been working with RA on the project.
This work is related to the redevelopment of the field, and we require this test boring to fulfill the county’s requirements prior to site plan approval.#Reston #EnjoyReston #HunterWoods pic.twitter.com/kAzBJiTs4o
