RCA and its Reston 2020 Committee Part Ways

By mutual decision of both groups, effectively immediately The Reston Citizens Association and its Reston 2020 Committee have agreed to terminate their affiliation with each other.

Established by RCA, the Reston 2020 committee has operated as an independent committee of RCA for the past six years publishing detailed analysis, blogs and other communications, and representing the community in public meetings on issues that impact Reston. 

The RCA Board of Directors thanks the Reston 2020 Committee for the invaluable contributions and their tireless efforts on behalf of Reston.


The RCA Board wishes the Reston 2020 Committee continued success and look forward to collaborating with it on issues of joint concern to ensure Reston continues to remain a premier community in the Washington DC Metro area where people wish to live, work and play.

Call for Candidates for RCA Board

Download Candidate Form Here


The annual Reston Citizens Association election for its Board of Directors is again gearing up!

2014-15 has been a very eventful year for Reston and RCA.  We had Reston Master Plan Phase II planning process that got underway in the middle of the year and RCA actively participated in it and helped the community stay abreast of the developments. 

We had other meaningful issues that came up during the year such as potential Lake Anne Fellowship House redevelopment and continuing issues like Reston National Golf Course or Fairfax County Public Library system or an indoor recreation center in Reston. 

This upcoming year is going to be another exciting one for RCA, as we continue to focus on educating and engaging the community and representing their voice.

If you want to take an active role in the future of Reston, please consider running for a seat on our board!


There are five seats up for election for the 2015-16 year, one seat for Town Center/Lake Anne/Tall Oaks District Director and four At-Large Director positions.  

To run for Town Center/Lake Anne/Tall Oaks District Director seat, you must live in SMALL TAX DISTRICT 5, be a Reston resident, and vote in designated precincts/polling places within Reston districts.  Those precincts for the Town Center/Lake Anne/Tall Oaks District are Reston I, Reston II, Reston III or Cameron Glen Precinct and the corresponding polling places are Forest Edge Elementary or Lake Anne Elementary schools. The elected director for this position will serve for one year.

For the At-Large Director position, you may live anywhere in SMALL TAX DISTRICT 5. All of the At-Large Directors will serve 3-year terms. That’s it. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve lived in Reston for 30 days or 30 years, whether you’re a homeowner or a renter, what political party you belong to (RCA is non-partisan), or whether you’re younger or older (as long as you’re at least 18). 

If you want to actively promote Reston’s vision and planning principles, sustain and enhance its quality of life, please fill out an application for our election, which will be held this year between June 7 and June 22nd. The RCA application is available online here.   Your completed application must be received by RCA by May 23rd by email or by mail (2033 Approach Lane, Reston, VA 20191).
