Cluster Design Standards
The Cluster standards are maintained officially by Reston Association’s Design Review Board (DRB), and govern the exterior appearance of all structures and grounds within the Cluster, including home exteriors and components (paint, windows, doors, fences/decks, retaining walls, etc.) and common area structures such as carports. All exterior features within the Cluster are required to conform with Cluster standards. Any and all exterior changes to a homeowner’s property must be first reviewed and approved by the DRB. Click on the link below to obtain an application form for a DRB review of your planned improvement project: Reston Design Review Board Application
Maintaining or refurbishing an already approved exterior feature does not need review or approval as long as it retains its original DRB-approved design. It is always a good idea to check with Reston Association before making any changes to the exterior of your home or property. For more information on this process, visit the Reston Association Website. The Colts Neck Cluster Standards are provided as a series of .PDF files on this page.
Several years ago the Colts Neck Cluster board of directors put together a handbook for cluster homeowners. The handbook contains information on cluster history and operation, home design standards, parking regulations, home maintenance tips, and much more. The handbook is available as a PDF file here – Colts Neck Cluster Homeowner’s Handbook.
Reston Association – Property Owner Resources
The Reston Association maintains a helpful webpage of resources for Reston property owners, including information about the design review process and related forms, how to obtain resale disclosure documents, how cluster associations operate, and more. Visit their home page for these and other resources.
Reston Association – Governing Documents
The Colts Neck Cluster Association is organized within Reston Association and is therefore governed by RA’s governing documents. These are available on RA’s website at this link. Article VII of the Deed of Dedication provides rules for Cluster operations.
Trash and Recycling
Trash is collected twice weekly, on Mondays and Thursdays. Recycling is collected once weekly, on Thursdays. During spring and summer, lawn waste is picked up on Wednesdays. Trash and recycling service for the cluster is provided by AAA Recycling and Trash Removal. For information about this service, including what trash will be collected and what is recyclable, please visit this web page. For disposal or recycling of chemicals, electronics, building materials, and other items see the Fairfax County web page on recycling and trash.
Each home in the cluster is assigned one covered parking space in the carports that are owned and maintained by the Colts Neck Cluster Association. All other parking spaces are open to cluster residents and their guests. During snowstorms, certain areas must be left clear for piling snow cleared from the road – see the Cluster Snow Map below for details. For more information on parking regulations, see the current Cluster Bylaws, or the Cluster Handbook, described above.
