Virtual and In-Person Program  Hosted by the Reston Historic Turst & Museum 

 The Reston Historic Trust & Museum is pleased to announce a new program presented by Anne Rachel Flynn, Deputy County Executive of Fairfax County, who will be discussing Placemaking in Fairfax County at 7:00pm on November 18 at Reston Community Center Lake Anne. Flynn will discuss the importance of “placemaking,” a community focused approach to planning and designing public spaces, in creating great neighborhoods and community centers – and provide examples of this throughout the County, including Reston. Flynn will also discuss the development of Fairfax County over time: its transportation systems, land use patterns, and economy. 

Rachel Flynn joined Fairfax County in February 2019 as the Deputy County Executive — overseeing Planning, Building, Transportation, Economic Initiatives, Public Works, and Parks. Prior to moving to Fairfax, she worked for Google as Director of Planning and for Lennar/FivePoint Communities in Northern California. She has been honored with numerous awards from civic and professional organizations for successful master plans, historic preservation efforts, progressive environmental initiatives, and innovative GIS/technology programs. Rachel holds degrees from Harvard University and Catholic University.
