FINAL Approval DRB Meeting for Tall Oaks

The Reston Association Design Review Board (DRB) will be hearing a presentation by Lennar, the developer of the residential portion of the Tall Oaks property.  Lennar is seeking design approval from the DRB and this is likely the last opportunity that residents can have their voice heard.

The DRB meeting will be July 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm in the RA Headquarters Conference Center.

More details about the Tall Oaks project on the RA page can be found here.

Urgent! Two Upcoming Meetings on Tall Oaks Village Center Development

Please attend one or both meetings:

• The Reston Planning and Zoning Committee is meeting on October 19th at 7:30pm at the South Lakes High School cafeteria
• The Design Review Board meeting is on October 20th at 7:00pm at the Reston Association

Jefferson Apartments Group (JAG) has submitted their redevelopment plan for 154 residences in the Tall Oaks Village Center to the county.  Tall Oaks Village Center is just seven acres in size.

Their plan is not consistent with the Reston Master Plan guidance on Village Centers nor does it satisfactorily address community concerns expressed by the RA Board of Directors and the Tall Oaks community. Shortly before his death Robert Simon came to some of the public meetings and to express his unhappiness with JAG’s plan.

In a letter to Supervisor Hudgins concerning JAG’s plan, the RA Board made a straightforward declaration: JAG’s plan “falls woefully short of meeting even minimum standards sought for a village center.” In fact the submitted JAG plan falls short in just about all, if not all, of the areas of Tall Oaks community’s concerns as expressed at multiple meetings with the developer.

We need as many people as possible to attend the next two meetings to provide a united front and try and stop JAG’s current development plan for the Tall Oaks Village Center.

Please try to attend and bring as many supporters of the Village Center concept as you can. See you there.
