Reston Referendum May Miss Quorum

The outlook for Reston Association's four-year effort to revise the community's governing documents for the first time in 22 years is increasingly dim, say association officials. The 60-day voting period on the revisions was scheduled to end today and the number of ballots turned in is still short of the 40% of Reston homeowners required to make it valid.

Officials say that if the revisions are not approved, the association would be severely hampered in its efforts to provide the services and upkeep of facilities the community requires. The association has taken advantage of a one-time-only opportunity to offer a ten day extension for people to vote, but they aren't optimistic that, given all they have already done to get people to respond, that the extension will be enough.

An earlier story on the referendum is here.
