We now must ask our elected officials and government staff to stand up for our neighborhoods! You can write one email and put all of the addresses in the “To” line, or send individual emails.
What to include in your email/notes to your officials:
The neighborhood was not consulted in the proposal that was now in front of staff and we need to be involved now.
The South Reston Gateway to the Metro needs to accessible to the whole community.
The developer’s land use plans must be approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. The Board consists of a county-wide chair and a representative from each district. Our current Board Chair is Jeff McKay and our Hunter Mill district representative is Walter Alcorn.
If you are concerned about the crosswalks and the traffic and risks to pedestrian safety they will cause, it is important that you also reach out to our Virginia State Senator, Janet Howell, and our Virginia State Delegate, Ken Plum. They are our neighbors and can be our voice with the Virginia Department of Transportation.
John Carter is the Hunter Mill District Planning Commissioner. He has worked closely with the community and community groups to mitigate unbridled development.
This project will have a direct impact on neighborhoods currently in the Reston Association (RA). If you agree that RA should be standing up for our neighborhoods, email the RA staff and Board as well. Sarah Salvaraj-D’Souza is the RA Board President and Larry Butler is the Acting CEO.
