Reston Association selects vendor for new website

Reston Association’s Board of Directors selected the web development company CivicPlus as the vendor for its website redesign — a project that has been in the works since 2020.

At a Dec. 14 board meeting, RA Chief Operating Officer Peter Lusk said staff have been working on fine-tuning the details of the new design.

“There was an extensive effort in June, both on the staff side and in collaboration with the IT committee, to select the right vendor and keep this project moving to start work,” he said.

Lusk said the new website will be fully customized with new menu structures and improved communication tools.

RA’s website was abruptly taken down in 2020 due to outdated technology and stability issues. Financial records were lost in the process, and some information was not backed up.

RA moved to establish an information technology committee in March 2021 to navigate the website and other tech issues, which were outlined by consulting firm Wipfli last year.

Earlier this year, the association said it hoped to launch the website by the end of the first quarter of 2024.

“We’re all very excited to get it moving,” Lusk said.

Since the website was taken down, RA’s platform has been running on Squarespace.
