Reston Association’s Board of Directors to Hold Listening Sessions with Members

Continuing a practice embraced by previous candidates for the Reston Association’s Board of Directors, the board will host four member listening sessions starting next month.

Residents in each voting district will be able to provide feedback and learn more about updates on district-related topics, as well as community members. Each listening session is hosted by the board member representing the district.

RA Board President Andy Sigle said he hopes to see strong attendance at the listening sessions.

“The district listening sessions are designed to make sharing thoughts and ideas about our association easy,” Sigle wrote in a prepared statement “Drop in, chat with neighbors, staff and board members. Listen to a short talk from a board member on current association issues and priorities and then share your views.”

Details for the sessions are below:

  • September 26: North Point District with John Mooney (The Lake House, 11450 Baron Cameron Avenue)
  • October 3: South Lakes District with Julie Bitzer (Walker Nature Center, 11450 Glade Drive)
  • October 10: Hunters Woods/Dogwood District with Caren Anton (Southgate Community Center, 12125 Pinecrest Road)
  • October 17: Lake Anne District with Sherri Hebert (Reston Community Center Lake Anne, 1609 Washington Plaza)

  • Why do you bother?

    Translation: “The board will suffer through hours of “listening” to members to fool them into thinking their opinions have any value. Note that there is no mention of “action.” “

    What this article fails to mention is that the RA Board will meet on August 20–before these listening sessions–to decide what to say to Hudgins about the planned PRC zoning density increase. Rumor has it that it will abandon its position last August of keeping overall density at 13 people per acre for a “compromise” at 14.5 just weeks after the County offered 15 people per acre.

    That’s not a compromise. That’s a complete collapse of RA’s position under Andy Sigle and Larry Butler.

      They should say to Hudgins:
      You’re fired!
      That might make her listen, but I doubt it
