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.
