Reston Association Board to Give Status Report on Lake House Review

Reston Association

Among the items on the agenda for this month’s meeting of the Reston Association Board of Directors is a report on the status of the Lake House review. In addition, the Board’s executive session is scheduled in part for the purpose of discussing “contractual matters related to Tetra/Lake House review.”

Board Vice President Michael Sanio is scheduled to deliver the report during Thursday’s meeting. No details about its contents were made available within the meeting packet.

The Lake House, formerly known as the Tetra building, is located off Baron Cameron Avenue between Lake Newport Tennis and Brown’s Chapel Park. Reston Association passed a referendum to buy the building in May 2015 for $2.6 million. Needed renovations were budgeted for about $259,000; however, that number quickly ballooned to $655,000.

An independent review of that cost was planned, with a local group called Mediaworld Ventures LLC announcing they would do the work for a $1 fee. After months of negotiations over the details, that proposal fell through with finger-pointing from both sides.

Among other items on the agenda for the meeting are the following:

Overview of Elections & Referenda Resolution 3; Campaign Rules & Standards of Conduct

Public Hearing — Addition to Property Request Sunrise Square

RA Position on Reston Transportation Funding Plan

Fairfax County Specimen Tree Designation Request

Capital Improvement Planning — Lake Anne Dock & Dredging Project

The board meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday at RA’s offices (12001 Sunrise Valley Drive).
