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.
