Reston Now Weekend Discussion Topics

We’ve reached the end of August and the Labor Day holiday is nigh. Before we head off into the big three-day weekend, though, let’s take a look back at the biggest stories on Reston Now in recent days.

The following articles were the five most-clicked links on Reston Now this past week.

  1. Fairfax County School Board Vote is Tuesday (Karen Keys-Gamarra won the election.)
  2. Mouthpiece for Reston Town Center Merchants Says His Business Is on the Outs
  3. Arrest Made After Attempted Robbery in Hunters Woods Parking Lot
  4. Now Open: Coopers Hawk Winery and Restaurant on Sunset Hills Road
  5. Arrest Made in Attempted Sexual Assault Earlier This Month Near Tall Oaks

This week also saw the first community input meeting on the Hook Road Recreation Area project from Reston Association, which came with controversy along with the beginning of the discussion. We will continue to follow that process as it progresses over the next several months.

And in late-breaking news Friday, At-Large Director Ray Wedell informed Reston Now that he will resign from the RA Board. We’re continuing to follow that story and will provide more information when it becomes available.

In addition, the week marked the one-year anniversary of an unsolved hit-and-run pedestrian death on North Shore Drive. Police are still looking for information.

Feel free to discuss these topics and anything else that happened locally this week. Have a great weekend!
