Reston Transit Station Areas

Heron HouseAbout

In February of 2014, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors adopted an amendment to the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan establishing the Reston Transit Station Areas (TSAs). It capitalizes on the framework originally envisioned for the new town by creating a transit-oriented development strategy that allows for Reston’s continued economic and physical growth, while maintaining its legacy of walkability, sustainability, innovation, and inclusiveness.

The vision for the TSAs calls for dynamic, multimodal environments where open space, landscape elements, and buildings are used as organizational elements to create beautiful spaces. The TSA environment will foster bicycling, pedestrian movement and an enhanced connection between people and nature. The desired character will be created through the integration of buildings, sidewalks, plazas, and public art with natural elements such as tree canopies, open space and water features.

Board Initiates Process to Amend Reston Comprehensive Plan

On January 14, 2020, the Board of Supervisors initiated an amendment to the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan for Reston.

“It has been five years since the current Comprehensive Plan for Reston was adopted,” said Supervisor Alcorn. “And the time is right to review key elements of that plan, including the balance of existing and planned development, infrastructure and the environment across all of Reston.”

Supervisor Alcorn estimates that the plan review and community engagement process will be approximately 12 to 18 months. Opportunities for community input will include a community task force, public meetings and additional engagement processes.

Reston Design Guidelines

The Guidelines provide detailed urban design and streetscape information to complement the existing Comprehensive Plan and apply to development proposals.
