Reston Association’s Board of Directors plans to defer $1.3 million in capital work for the upcoming 2021 capital budget.
Although budget deliberations continue, RA staff have identified six projects that will likely be deferred to future years. Plans for deferrals come as nearly $600,000 in capital work has been adjusted or added, including the renovation of Lake Thoreau Pool and general increases in costs for construction and materials.
Plans for Lake Anne Dam, which currently does not meet state safety codes for overtopping Wiehle Avenue during a design flood, could be deferred. Currently, a state committee has been forced to evaluate dam regulations for all structures in Virginia, according to draft meeting materials. The outcome of those discussions could take up to two years to formalize.
“We will maintain our provisional approved status with the state with no penalties enforced,” according to RA meeting materials.
A more comprehensive renovation of the Glade Tennis Court may also require the deferral of that project. Staff found that more work beyond planned that grading and lighting retrofitting is necessary.
Other deferred project include:
- The addition of seven vehicles and mowers
- Lake Newport pool siding
- Glade Pool floor coating, cabinets and counters
- Newbridge cabinets and counters
So far, the $3.45 million draft budget includes the renovation of Lake Thoreau Pool, with project costs being split between 2021 and 2022.
The meeting is set for Thursday, Oct. 22 at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom.
