Tonight: Two Important Decisions For Reston Association Board

Reston AssociationReston Association will be deciding Thursday on two issues that will affect the community in the long and near term.

The first — what should assessments be for 2014? The board has been discussing the needs of the association for months, and has considered taking out a loan of up to $2.5 million.

The board voted last week that the assessments will rise no higher than $634 in 2014.  The amount could be less, says RA president Ken Knueven. If they go to $634, it will be a rise of $44 from 2013, and a rise of more than $200 per household in the last decade.

The second — Should RA agree to a land swap with Republic Land Development? RA owns a 1.1-acre plot of wooded land close to the current Lake Anne Plaza parking area. Republic, the chosen firm for the redevelopment of Crescent Apartments and the nearby area, says it needs the land for a public parking garage and would give RA a similar sized plot of land and hundreds of thousands of dollars in improvements in return. Many in the community have protested the removal of trees for parking.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at RA Headquarters, 12001 Sunrise Valley Dr. There will be a public comment period.
