Welcome to Restonian, a blog about all things Reston (tm). Warts and all.
But what, you may ask, is Reston (tm)? For the definitive answer, let us point you to the introduction to the seminal work, Reston: The First 20 Years.
For a long time, Reston was an idea, a plan, a dream. It would be a place, said the planners and dreamers, where people would be able to work where they lived. The countryside would co-exist with the city, with ducks and geese parading past the stores and townhouses lining the manmade lakes, and trails leading from apartments to glades of trees. Reston would not only be a new town, but a new way of living.
Shorter version, set to music:
Well, I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And adhere to cluster regulations
on the placement of recycling bins in or near carport areas.
Forgive us if we get a bit emotional.
