You’re invited to give feedback on future land-use near proposed Wiehle Avenue Metro Station
As you may know the new Silver Line is being planned to take commuters from Reston/Herndon into the City. The Wiehle Metro Station will be located just west of Tyson’s Corner at Weihle Avenue. Planners and adminstrators have invited the public to offer input about the land-use around the proposed station on March 20, at 9 a.m. The public workshop will be held at the Langston Hughes Middle School cafeteria, 11401 Ridge Heights Road, Reston. The draft agenda for this workshop is available online.
The goal of this development is to take advantage of proximity to Metro while preserving nearby neighborhoods. The Reston Master Plan Task Force will develop recommendations for future land use for the Dulles Corridor. This includes the areas around the future Wiehle Avenue, Reston Parkway and Herndon-Monroe Metro stations, as well as Reston Town Center. Community workshops will be conducted for each of these areas, so the public can offer their input. Public hearings also will be held later this year on the overall recommendations for the corridor.
The task force is scheduled to present its recommendationsthis summer and they will be sent to the Fairfax County Planning Commission for review this fall. The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will then vote on whether to include the recommendations in the Comprehensive Plan for the corridor.
Materials from previous workshops are available online.
