About this campaign

Funds are used to support the defense of Reston’s north and south golf courses. Reston’s Master Plan promised permanent open recreational space, and it is our combined strength as a grassroots community effort that will fight against speculative development interests with deep pockets. http://www.rescuereston.org/

Rescue Reston works to defend Reston's recreational green space at the 164-acre North Course, Hidden Creek Country Club, and at the South Course, Reston National Golf Course, a 166-acre Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program Golf Course on the Chesapeake Bay watershed. The land use designation of both properties is private recreation use, more specifically to remain as golf courses.

In doing so we are guided by the following principles:

-Maintain the sense of community that Reston has enjoyed for more than 50 years through thoughtful planning and zoning.
-Protect this space from development that is counter to the adopted Reston Master Plan and the vision for Reston laid out in its founding as an ideal place to live, work and play.
-Prevent the destruction of the Restonian way of life that includes concentrated open spaces where nature can thrive and people can enjoy wildlife and natural horizons.
-Sustain the vision that Reston offered homeowners of a community dedicated to preservation of open space and limitations on development.
-People bought homes here with the understanding that Reston would maintain a geography of lakes, golf courses, and open spaces forever free from houses, commercial space, or other development.
-Preserve the guiding premise of Reston as a true planned community, which continues to attract families, individuals and businesses.

Given the huge density already approved in our planned community, NOT ONE SQUARE FOOT of open space can be lost!!! Golf Course open space is integral to the functional balance for our planned community to remain sustainable.

I have lived in Reston for 50 years; I know the RPC zoning required open space acreage to balance clustered housing.

To prevent big developers from overcrowding an already overpopulated town/neighborhood(s). I bought my townhome because it was near/on the golf course where I'm not looking straight into someone else's house.

Reston is unlike any community in Northern VA; and, I would think, far beyond. Caving to developers and losing our unique character would be a seriously tragic move toward homogenized boredom. We don't need to redevelop EVERYthing!!
