Reston is Virginia’s first planned community and ranks #7 of the top 100 best places to live in the United States by Money magazine. This is largely due to the adherence to the Reston Master Plan and to careful development within the Reston community.
The development of Reston National Golf Course would be detrimental to the very thing that makes Reston special—a beautiful, thriving and diverse community achieved through well-balanced planning that matches available space and infrastructure with residents. Further development of this open space would weaken our current infrastructure, overburden the existing roads, and add additional students to Reston schools already operating at capacity.
The approval of this proposed development opens the door to alteration of the Fairfax County Comprehensive plan. If it can happen in Reston, it can happen anywhere in the county.
