Once again, Walden Cluster enjoyed a fun Halloween! Thanks to all who participated, including Jacinta, who organized this event, the Fairfax County Fire Department, who visited the neighborhood and led the Halloween parade, and everyone who decorated the playground or provided goodies.

In order to clarify Walden Cluster’s window replacement options, the Walden Board recently worked with Reston Association’s Design Review Board (DRB) to refine the window alternatives available to Walden residents. If you are interested in replacing your existing windows, please refer to Section 13, Windows, of the guidebook to review the options available for your townhouse. And remember that all window replacements require the submittal and approval of a DRB application by Reston Association.
The updated guide is linked below, and it is also available in the left frame using the “Cluster Design Standards” link.
Walden Cluster Design Standards (August 2014)
Reston Association has selected Walden Cluster’s Halloween Parade and Party as the neighborhood association event of the year. In a message sent to cluster members, the Walden Cluster board states, “Jacinta Jones and Jami Andrews are to be applauded for their creativity and commitment in hosting this fun-for-all-ages Walden community event. We wish to thank them for their service and congratulate them on this recognition.”
A red fox has been seen in Walden Cluster over the past month or so, and during the recent snow, it was photographed near the cluster dock. Here are some of the pictures taken. You can click on either of the pictures to get a better view.
Typically, red foxes range from 12 to 18 pounds. They primarily feed on small rodents (8 pounds or less), but they will also eat plants. They’re most active at dusk and dawn. (The pictures above were taken in early morning.) If you have any concerns about a fox being in the neighborhood, there is an informative article about foxes published by The Humane Society in the link below.
