Hamm represents Weller Development Co. and War Horse Cities, two Baltimore-based developers who purchased the golf course in 2019. The study group was established so Reston National had a forum to discuss issues about the future of the golf course with local officials and neighboring residents. "The first topic that we're bringing up in this study group is our property lines and vegetated buffers or trees," Hamm said, in an interview prior to the meeting. "We spent a very significant amount of time and effort, working with Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc. to assist us in understanding the condition of these areas."

A representative from Weller Development Co., one the developers who owns the Reston National Golf Course, reached out to O'Doyle to offer assistance. "He said his boss read the Patch article and wanted to see if there's some way they could help the gardeners," she said. "He goes, 'We don't really have plants like this, so we can't offer you guys plants, but could better security be helpful?' I'm like, 'Sure, if you want to work with RA, I'll help you." "I think it's nice for the gardeners to know that somebody in the business community is willing to say, 'Hey, we noticed. Is there something we can help with?'" she said.
