Octorber Warbler WV Cluster Newsletter

Waterview Warbler
Fall is in the air. Kids are back in school and thoughts are turning to fall time activities: football, Halloween and sweater weather. Fall is a time of preparation in the Cluster. We will have our Fall Work Day to ready the Cluster for colder weather. We are also using the remaining warm days to make repairs to commonly held property. We hope as leaves change color and the days shorten you continue to enjoy life in Waterview.
Fall Cluster Work Day: Oct. 4
Please join us on Oct. 4 for our Fall Cluster Work Day. We will meet at 8:30 at the Marina for donuts, bagels, coffee and juice. You will then be invited to choose a task from the list of activities prepared by the landscape committee. Tasks vary from picking up fallen sticks and limbs to weeding and planting. Cluster work day is also a great time to take a look at your carport and clean it out. At lunchtime we will have potluck lunch with the Cluster providing hotdogs and beverages. We hope everyone can join us! 
Lake Anne Redevelopment Meeting Just for Waterview: Sept. 29
Lake Anne Development Partners have scheduled a special meeting to talk with residents of Waterview Cluster about the planned redevelopment of Lake Anne Plaza. This meeting will be on Monday, Sept. 29 at 7:00 in the Rose Gallery at the Reston Community Center-Lake Anne. The goal of this meeting is provide an update on redevelopment plans and specific impacts on Waterview Cluster. 
Carport Repairs and Repainting
The Waterview Cluster Board recently contracted with Michael Landgrover to make repairs to the Cluster's carports. The repairs include replacing spalling brick, wood repair and repainting the exteriors. Michael began the repairs in the beginning of this month and they are expected to continue to the end of the month. Repairs are estimated to cost $16,000. 
Tree Care    
We have couple of trees on Cluster property that are not faring well and will be removed by Care of Trees. There are currently two Virginia Pines and one White Pine slated for removal this fall.  In addition there is one failing Red Oak in the wooded border near 11478 OL that may need to be removed.  All four removals will require the use of a large crane. We will keep you posted about actual dates of tree removal. 
Trash Pick Up Reminders 

Everyone is reminded that trash pick up is Monday and Thursday with recycling pick up on Monday and brush pick up on Wednesday. There is trash pick up on all holidays except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year. Please put your trash the night before or the morning of and take your trash bins in later that evening. Also, it is strongly suggested that trash be put out in bins and not just in trash bags. These efforts help keep our neighborhood looking tidy.

This event will also provide a sneak preview of GRACE's new dynamic exhibition, LineWorks: Drawing Redefined.  We are the first public group invited to see this exhibition and we hope that even if all the little details haven't yet been completed you will enjoy the artworks.

LineWorks :Drawing Redefined presents a variety of multi-media works by five artists who utilize line as an essential element in their work.  Featured artists Lee Gainer, Sarah Irvin, Nikki Painter, Foon Sham and Sarah Weinstock all create work that relies fundamentally upon line drawing.  In addition, they all explore how memories are formed, collected and forgotten,  using drawing to document their experiences.  The Greater Reston Arts Center's Gallery  will be reconfigured into five independent spaces, each presenting a different and innovative process, expanding the definition of drawing itself.

For more information about this event, call the Museum at 703-709-7700 or email restonmuseum@gmail.com
