Proposed PRC Zoning Ordinance Amendment – Update
From Supervisor Hudgins

Over the course of the past year and half, the Department of Planning and
Zoning, in coordination with the Hunter Mill District Office, has hosted both
large and small community meetings to discuss the proposed Reston PRC
Zoning amendment. As indicated when the proposed amendment was
announced, the goal has been to revise the maximum overall density of 13
persons/acre permitted in the Reston PRC to implement the long-term planned
residential growth contemplated in the adopted Comprehensive Plan for the
Reston PRC. This long-term growth is limited to the Reston Town Center, the
Village Centers and a few sites that have long been planned for non-
residential or high density residential use. This PRC amendment does not
facilitate residential development on either of Reston’s two golf courses
because these are planned to remain golf courses under the adopted Reston
Master Plan.

In July 2018, at the request of CPR and Reston Association, staff participated in
a series of “small group work sessions” that were designed to address concerns
relating to schools, parks, transportation and zoning as these were critical
issues that surfaced from the various meetings. These discussions have
provided a greater understanding and clarity on these topics and staff has
agreed to clarify certain points such as the portions of the village centers
where redevelopment is appropriate as well as developing an overall future
population target for Reston as was done for the original Reston Master Plan.

At this point, I have requested that staff present the proposed PRC Zoning
Ordinance amendment to the Board at the December 4, 2018
Board meeting for authorization to advertise public hearings on the proposed
amendment early next year. After having significant community input, the
persons per acre range will be advertised from 13 to 15 persons per acre,
instead of the previously recommended maximum of16 persons/acre. My
office and county staff will continue the dialogue as the process moves
