Page 4, Revise RCIG footnote: The Reston Center for Industry and Government consisted of commercially and industrially zoned properties that were planned for office and R&D use and where covenants on the land limited retail use and prohibited residential and hotel uses. These covenants were voluntarily terminated by landowners in 2011. Page 43, Modify the first sentence under Service Street Streetscapes: Service streets are expected to provide access to parking, loading docks, waste management, utilities, and other back-of-house “back-of-building” operations. Page 45, Modify last sentence of the first paragraph under Wayfinding and Signage: . . . .provide directional assistance or location information (including street addresses) to pedestrians and motorists. Page 48, delete the fifth sentence in the second paragraph under Step-backs: Buildings four stories or less do not require a step-back. Page 104, After the third sentence under West Fountain Drive Subdistrict, add reference a new figure showing the urban blocks and green space concept for the Town Center North Mixed Use Area. A major urban park and community-gathering space should be located in the center of the subdistrict and a key design feature in organizing the layout of the subdistrict. A preliminary concept with potential street grid and central green space is shown on Figure X. This concept fosters the creation of several urban blocks that will form a logical extension of the development pattern established in the Town Center. Residential buildings should front on tree-lined streets and be designed with inviting street level facades.
