Keeping Reston Looking Great

Members of the Reston Association benefit from a high aesthetic standard. Our community and its neighborhoods are attractive and well-kept. In fact, people who visit Reston, even briefly, often comment on the beauty of the community. This section of our website provides information and resources to help property owners understand their rights and responsibilities, and to assist members with the design and use/maintenance guidelines.

Reston's attractiveness is not accidental. The community has established guidelines and covenants for property owners to follow. This ensures the beauty and harmony of our community. Residents who move to Reston and signed Disclosure Documents agreed to comply with RA covenants.

Protecting the integrity of the Reston community and property values is a partnership — one that begins with community members. The partners include the elected and appointed community members who serve on Reston Association’s Board of Directors, Design Review Board and various committees. The policies and decisions of these groups are implemented by the Reston Association staff.

Reston Expo: Home, Garden & More

Reston property owners themselves play major roles in the process by planning ahead for exterior changes to their property and thus contributing to Reston's widely acclaimed aesthetic qualities. To help members with this endeavor, RA holds a free Reston Expo: Home, Garden & More each spring to provide residents with expert advice on home improvement projects. See a list of expert home improvement vendors (right column) who have offered their services at the most recent expo. Details about each annual expo will be announced on the RA WebTrac calendar several weeks prior to the event.
