Wiehle Pedestrian Crossing Study Group Begins!

Hunter Mill Supervisor Convenes Meeting on Proffered Pedestrian Crossing

The SOS team has been following up on the commitments TF Cornerstone promised in its proffers to the community.


The Hunter Mill Supervisor has called a community meeting on January 13, 2020.


Below is the announcement from the Hunter Mill Supervisor’s office:


Good Morning All:

As you may know, TF Cornerstone, is the owner of the Campus Commons property located at 1900 and 1902 Campus Commons Drive in Reston, Virginia.  On October 15, 2019, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved rezoning application RZ 2017-HM-018 to permit the development of two residential buildings and an additional office building on the Campus Commons property, subject to certain proffered conditions (http://ldsnet.fairfaxcounty.gov/LDSnet/ldsdwf/4693075.PDF).

Under the proffers, TF Cornerstone is required to coordinate with the Hunter Mill District Supervisor’s office to convene a study group that will evaluate options for a pedestrian crossing of Wiehle Avenue between the Campus Commons development and the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station.  The options may include an at-grade crosswalk, an above-grade pedestrian bridge, and/or a below-grade pedestrian underpass.  The development plan associated with the rezoning approval includes a potential at-grade crosswalk and three potential pedestrian bridge configurations.  The study group is to provide a recommendation for a preferred option to the Board of Supervisors.  Fairfax County Staff will evaluate the study group’s preferred option and also make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors.  The Board of Supervisors will approve the pedestrian crossing to be implemented.

The purpose of this email is to invite you to a meeting to initiate the study group, which the proffer specifies must be done within 90 days of rezoning approval.  The meeting will be held on January 13, 2020, from 7:00pm – 8:00 pm, at the Hunter Mill District Supervisor’s office (1801 Cameron Glen Drive, Reston-Community Room A).  This initial meeting will provide  background on the approved rezoning, an overview options for a pedestrian crossing, and a process and timeline for the study group to develop and make a recommendation.   

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.  Please email or call me at 703-478-0283 if you have any questions.
