Group to Review Reston Association’s Docks, Lakes and Boats Policies

In response to residents’ concerns, Reston Association’s Board of Directors created a working group to review policies that govern how lakes, docks and boats are used.

Over the last several months, several RA members complained that docks were often being used non-RA members and policies were not being adequately followed.

The working group, which will have roughly 15 members, will work through November to present recommendations to the board. Candidates will be interviewed by the Board Operation Committee in May. RA members interested in participating should email [email protected] by April 30.

The group’s objectives are below, via Reston Association:

1. Examine the number and types of boats and docks currently on each of the association’s lakes and ponds.

2. Identify any and all environmental impacts docks and boats have on the association’s lakes and ponds.

3. Hold focus groups and public meetings to obtain input from lakefront property owners as well as other RA members.

4. Review all the current governing documents on lakes, docks and boats.

5. Recommend amendments to the governing documents.

6. Identify the impact of RA rules on lakes, docks, and boats on the lakeside property owners’ use of their properties.

7. Identify enforcement issues, especially from the perspective of lakeside property owners and RA staff.

8. Recommend a plan for possible amendments to the governing documents that best resolve issues in objectives 1-7.
