Reston Connection Article

Ed Hass knows where the foxes keep their dens along the Reston National Golf Course. He found an occupied den this spring, and when the kits were born he took more than 100 photos.

Fairfax Times Editorial

“Should NML prevail and we have to suffer the loss of open space and the huge increase in traffic congestion their plans would bring to pass, “Community Impact Day” will take on a whole new meaning, one the company won’t have to live with, but we the citizens of Reston will.”
-Reston Resident Dennis R. Read in the Fairfax Times, 8/7/15

Rescue Reston to Hold 2nd Annual Golf Tournament

Mark your calendars now! On Monday, October 3 Rescue Reston will hold its 2nd annual fundraising golf tournament at Reston National Golf Course. Rescue Reston is the citizens’ organization created four years ago to prevent Northwestern Mutual’s plans to destroy 166 acres of recreational open space in Reston. Rescue Reston joined Reston Association and Fairfax County to bring three separate issues before the Board of Zoning Appeals and the Circuit Court. Over the last four years, the law firm of Greehan, Taves, Pandak & Stoner has expertly represented Rescue Reston. The success in the court system increased the need for legal defense funds. Through specific fundraising events organized by Rescue Reston, including door-to-door solicitations, the organization has resolved 74% of the $151,169 four-year legal bill. Rescue Reston is self-funded and is separate from Reston Association and Fairfax County. “We have a strong committee and are working very hard for this year’s golf tournament to resolve this last portion of our legal obligation. We are off to a great start this year with significant contributions. Yet we have a way to go. There are plenty of opportunities for members of the community and businesses to participate in or sponsor the tournament” said John Pinkman, chairman of the golf tournament. Sponsorships are available at many different levels. A unique sponsorship offered this year is the “First Responder Foursome,” an opportunity to honor those who serve by sponsoring four first responders for an afternoon of golf. You can also choose three first responders to join your foursome. Sponsoring a South Lakes High School Golf Team Student Athlete Foursome is also a choice.... read more

Reston Citizens Association Press Release Reston Citizens Association Announces that the Supporters of Rescue Reston Will be Honored as 2015 Citizen of the Year [RESTON, VA]—March 18, 2016— The annual Reston Citizen of the Year Award traditionally honors an individual who has contributed to the quality of life in Reston, helped others in need and acted with the goals of Reston in mind, without thought of personal benefit or recognition. This year, the Reston Citizens Association (RCA) is proud to announce that the 2015 Reston Citizen of the Year will be awarded to the supporters of Rescue Reston, a grassroots organization comprising thousands of Restonians who came together to defend Reston National Golf Course as open green space and succeeded in doing so after mounting a long and resolute public campaign and legal battle. “Typically, RCA has awarded the honor to an individual from Reston, but chose Rescue Reston for 2015 because it greatly represents the things that make Reston very unique –- strong community involvement and passion for core founding principles such as preserving open green space and having ample recreational facilities within the community,” said Sridhar Ganesan, president, RCA. “Thousands of citizens united behind the Rescue Reston cause which resulted in a great public common good for Reston.

RN Golf Management Decides to NOT Appeal to Virginia Supreme Court

Today, our attorney received notification from the attorneys for Reston National Golf Course (RN Golf, LLC) of their decision to not appeal the December 4, 2015 Fairfax County Circuit Court decision that granted the motion for summary judgment filed by Fairfax County. As previously reported, RN Golf attorneys had filed their notice of appeal on December 22, 2015. While RN Golf has stated they do not intend to take the case to the Virginia Supreme Court, they are keeping their options open to “pursue available development options in the future.” Rescue Reston views today’s action as a very positive moment in the fight to save the 166 acres of open, recreational space that is integral to Reston’s vision as a Planned Residential Community. We are incredibly grateful for the actions of Reston residents, Rescue Reston members, Reston Association and Fairfax County and in awe of how the community stood together during this arduous process. Rescue Reston will provide updates soon regarding ongoing actions needed to remain vigilant in monitoring and continuing to protect this valuable Reston amenity.
