Attorneys for RN Golf Management LLC (of which Northwestern Mutual is the majority owner) have once again delayed their hearing before the Fairfax County Board of Zoning Appeals.
Rescue Reston board members were disappointed, but not surprised, to learn that attorneys for the owners of the Reston National Golf Course, RN Golf Management LLC (of which Northwestern Mutual is the majority owner) once again have delayed their appeal hearing before the Fairfax County Board of Zoning Appeals.
Comments from Rescue Reston Executive Director David Stroh, “We presume that the owners recognize the weakness of their case attempting to oppose the County Zoning Administrator’s determination that the Reston National Golf Course is clearly zoned as permanent open space. What they hope to accomplish by yet another long delay of the hearing is unclear, but we are looking into our options with Rescue Reston’s attorneys Greehan, Taves, Pandak & Stoner, PLLC.
“The most important thing our community can do right now is to show the Board of Zoning Appeals and our County Supervisors where we stand and why. Together we can show them that we support the Zoning Administrator’s determination and the County’s long-standing Comprehensive Plan for Reston. We can stand together and show that we do not appreciate and will not stand quietly by when anyone attempts to destroy the open space that makes Reston unique — one of Money Magazine’s top 10 places in the country to live – even if they have deep pockets to fund their attack.
“The Rescue Reston May 5th rally/Spring Into Action fundraiser at Hidden Creek will go on! A strong showing of support will send a message to Northwestern Mutual. If the goal is to wear us down, then they do not understand what Reston is, who we are, and what we Restonians are made of.”
The hearing date has been moved to September 25, 2013.
