Fairfax County staff are still reviewing a draft of Reston’s new comprehensive plan — a two-year-long effort to update the county’s vision for the area, including development goals.

A staff report — which includes responses to public comments — will be released early next year. The draft report covers 14 topic areas and was created after Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn in the January 2020.

At an October Board of Supervisors meeting, staff and some board members anticipated major changes to the draft text. Supervisors also noted that the plan may be ambitious or difficult to enforce.

County staff expect to offer updates to the Fairfax County Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors in December and January, respectively.

That means public meetings will be pushed into the spring of 2023.

In an October newsletter, Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn noted that he plans to have one-on-one meetings with the other supervisors in the coming months to discuss the plan.

“Residents should continue to provide written input or ask questions about the Reston Comprehensive Plan recommendations here,” Alcorn said in his newsletter.
