Our community is governed by the Lakeport Cluster Association (LCA) with a set of regulations, standards, and governing documents, some from LCA and some from the Reston Association (RA). 

A. Design Standards and Related Resources

Before committing to any changes to the outside of your home or landscaping, read "Getting Started", check the Lakeport Cluster Standards (#1) and the RA Cluster Property Guidelines (#2), and submit an official application for Design Review Board approval (#3), if needed. Read the RA Design Review Overview (#4) for an overview of the Reston Design Review objectives. If modifying landscaping, consult landscape related guidelines (#5-#9).
