 Message from John Melnick, Waterview Cluster HOA President

Waterview Cluster held its annual meeting May 7th. The residents who attended elected a new board member Bruce Geyman. We welcome Bruce who lives at 11444 with his wife Nan Dearborn and daughter Zoe.  Bruce has been a regular cluster volunteer over the years and he looks forward to bringing his cluster experience to the Board of Directors.  The Board of Directors re-elected John Melnick board as board president and elected Aimee Freeman as the board vice president.  The board reported sound finances and steady management of our cluster assets.  I have attached a directory of the current Waterview Cluster Board of Directors and Appointees.  My priorities this board year (May 2014-May 2015) are entrance signage and establishing a covenants committee.

RELAC start date

I thought the community might find this information useful.  I received this email from RELAC yesterday.

RELAC is ready for the season and we will start cooling operations this Thursday May 8th, 2014.

Note that Chimney House Road will be offline until the Heron House switches from heating to cooling.
We are working with the engineers and will update you when that happens.

Our second year of ownership begins on May 30 and we are planning a public meeting at the RA facilities at the end of this month.

As soon as RA gives us a day that their conference room is available we will announce the date.  This meeting will detail
the improvements we made last year, planned capital investments for this year, re-evaluation of flat rate
fees, and much more.

Air conditioning-  703-349-3301. Our home cooling system uses water from Lake Anne which is distributed by the utility RestonRelac.  Air Conditioning services begin after the second 80 degree day or May 22 through October 9th. Houses can be on a metered or flat rate billing system.  RestonRelac will perform a free check-up on your a/c system and can provide referrals for repairs.

Boat registration and marina reservations The WV Cluster marina can be used for resident events and residents can store private watercraft. Boats need be registered though the WV clusters board. A sticker is provided to indicate a registered boat. Acceptable watercraft include: canoes, kayaks, rowboats and small sailboats. Watercraft should be stored on the boat racks located on either side of the marina. Gas powered watercraft are not allowed on Lake Anne. Pontoon boats can be owned by residents with waterfront homes. Pontoons are not stored in the WV marina. To register a boat or an event at the marina, contact Lisa Climo at 703-709-6169


Dues TWC Association Management bills WV owners for HOA dues quarterly. There is a 10% late fee for bills paid after 30 days from the due date. Unpaid HOA bills can result in collection action and liens on the residence.  Each year at the annual meeting the cluster announces the amount of the next year’s HOA dues.  Small yearly increases are common to maintain the required capital reserves. TWC can be contacted at 703-437-5800 and Timely payment of your HOA dues is vital for WV Cluster operations.


Events and Home Owners Association meetings-Cluster Work Days will be held in the spring and fall each year. Suggested tasks are provided by the landscape committee.

The next WV HOA General Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday May 7th 7:30PM at the Reston Community Center Lake Anne.  There will be another members meeting in December TBA.
