Reston Association has a tradition of supporting and maintaining a high quality of life for its community members. The dedicated and committed association staff carries on the tradition through a variety of efforts, all of which are under the guidance and direction of the volunteer Board of Directors. Association employees work diligently to organize, plan, deliver and continuously improve the various programs and services that association members enjoy.
In addition to overseeing the architectural and maintenance covenants regarding property improvements and usage, the staff also supports the work of the association’s various committees, publicizes upcoming events and meetings and maintains common areas, recreational facilities and natural resources such as Reston's four lakes. RA is actively involved in advocating for its members at the Fairfax County government level and is consistently recognized as one of the best places to live in the country.

Watch the video below to get a better sense of what the association and Restonians are all about or go to our Strategic Plan page to read about the association's specific goals for our organization and community.
Founded in 1964, Reston was influenced by the Garden City movement that emphasized planned, self-contained communities that intermingled green space, residential neighborhoods, and commercial development. The intent of Reston's founder, Robert E. Simon, was to build a town that would revolutionize post–World War II concepts of land use and residential/corporate development in suburban America.
In 1968 the Reston Community Association (RCA) was created to take responsibility for community programs. The Reston Home Owner Association (RHOA) was created in
1970 by consolidating the original home owner associations. In 1970, the new RHOA was given the deeds for approximately 1,000 acres of Reston’s open space, lakes, recreational areas and facilities by then owner, Reston Gulf, Inc. These facilities included Lake Anne, swimming pools, parks and bridges. RHOA was later renamed
the Reston Association in 1987.
Today we’re aligning every service and amenity with the evolving needs and wants of our expanding community. We’re increasing the value of homes and
properties — and of visitor and member satisfaction. And today we’re keeping RA’s members’ best interests in clear focus so that tomorrow we’re even more effective.
Reston Association is pursuing the path of attaining new accomplishments. We are an association that continuously creates better amenities, services and ways of living. And will always be at the forefront of advocating for a sustainable future.
