WCA Owner/Tenant Contact Update Form

(click here)

Maintaining current contact information helps the board and its committees reach owners and tenants with important board announcements as well as during emergency events such as a water/gas main break or to report storm damage to vehicles or other property.  Each owner and paying tenant should complete a separate form.  Non-resident owners should enter their address at the end of the form.  Note: You do NOT need to have a Google account in order to update and submit the form.

Oct. 23 Statement on Hidden Creek
Country Club Property in Reston
Since assuming office this year, one of the more contentious land use questions in Reston is whether the designation of the Hidden Creek Country Club property as a golf course in the adopted Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan should be changed. On this question I have long stated that any proposal to change the comprehensive plan for this property to allow additional development would need support from the surrounding communities.

The current owners of Hidden Creek have spent much of 2020, and for some time prior to my assuming office, exploring community interest in other uses for their property. While this outreach effort has given them the time and opportunity to make their pitch, it has also generated a good deal of uncertainty and even anxiety among neighbors. Earlier this fall I let the Hidden Creek owners know that I did not want the community to bear this uncertainty indefinitely. 

Based on a review this week of all direct communications with my office via emails, phone calls and letters, there is not support from surrounding communities for changing the comprehensive plan. In fact it is not even close – there are more than five residents against for every supporter of possibly changing the plan. Therefore, I do not support changing the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan’s current designation of this property as a golf course and consider the matter closed.

Although I do not play golf (just once in the past 33 years) I do recognize that the long-term use of this property as a golf course depends on people willing to pay to play golf. I encourage members of the community who wish to see this property remain a golf course to pick up the game and go play!
Groundbreaking for Lake Anne House
On Oct. 22, Board of Supervisors Chairman Jeff McKay and I were among the officials who joined Enterprise Community Development, Fellowship Square Foundation and the Fairfax County Department of Housing and Development to celebrate the construction underway to replace the current Lake Anne Fellowship House.

When completed in the summer of 2022, the new Lake Anne House will offer 240 apartment homes including 56 studio apartments, 178 one-bedroom apartments and six two-bedroom apartments that will serve senior residents with incomes at or below 60 percent of AMI (Area Median Income) for at least 30 years. Each resident will pay no more than 30 percent of their income toward their housing costs, including rent and a utility allowance. The existing buildings, constructed in the 1970s, pre-date the American Disability Act and accessibility is a big challenge for its elderly residents. Lake Anne was designed to directly remedy that, facilitating long-term aging in place.

The community will include supportive features such as on-site management and resident services offices and wellness clinic for visiting medical professionals, as well as a fitness center, arts and crafts room, large social hall, sunroom, game room and outdoor terrace.
