Tall Oaks Petition

Retain Tall Oaks as a Village Center and protect our community

WE ALL WANT DEVELOPMENT – SMART and BALANCED

The current plan for the re-development of Tall Oaks is to basically create a new cluster.  The developers want to add 154 new homes with only 5,000 square feet of open space and 8,500 square feet of retail space (the equates to 2-3 small businesses). Currently, the occupied retail space (Fur Factory, Kumon, Paradise Nails, Pho 75, Mama Wok, Cleaners, Veterinarian, and Piasanos) is close to 20,000 square feet, according to Jefferson Apartment Group.

Tall Oaks community needs and deserves a Village Center with retail that we can walk to and green space where the community can gather.  A balance of residential and retail in a plaza-like setting would be a good compromise.

Let Reston Association know you are in support of a mixed use Village Center.  Ample retail on bottom and residential above.
