On May 12, 2017, Reston Association (RA) approved the Hawthorn HOA Board’s request to allow for a new style of rear light. Previously, Hawthorn home owners were allowed to use the Progress Lighting jelly jar style light. However, Progress Lighting stopped manufacturing jelly jar lighting options, so the board decided to find an alternative.
As of May 12, residents may now install Progress Lighting P5756-10 solid brass, bright finish lamps for their rear lighting fixtures.
Jelly jar fixtures are still an option – and they do not have to be from Progress Lighting. You have the option to get them from any company, assuming that they are polished brass in color. You may also paint jelly jar fixtures of other colors so that they appear brass in color. For example, you may purchase two black jelly jar fixtures, spray paint them with Krylon or Rust-Oleum metallic brass paint, and then install them.
Please note: You may only install either jelly jar-type fixtures OR the P5756-10 fixtures. No other types of lights are approved. In addition, both back lights must be the same type. For example, you may not have one jelly jar and one P5756-10.
