The Reston Citizens Association Board of Directors has decided to fill the three vacant seats on the Board at its next meeting on Feb. 24. One vacancy was created when Gary Lee Thomas resigned.  The other two slots were left unfilled at the last election due to a shortage of candidates, says RCA president Colin Mills.

Applications will be accepted using the standard RCA Board application form through Feb. 17. Board members will review the applications, interview the applicants at the Feb. 24 meeting  and select up to three to fill the vacant slots. Those selected to fill the vacancies will have to run in this spring’s regular RCA Board election to retain their spots for a two-year term.

The Board decided to fill the positions immediately in light of the numerous important issues confronting the Reston community now. RCA says that most important are:

  • Phase 2 of the Reston Master Plan process which will look at redeveloping the village centers and other areas of Reston.
  •  Community participation in the Phase 1 (Dulles Corridor) Master Plan implementation group that will grapple with how the plan’s vision is achieved.
  • The possibility of a new Reston recreation center and the numerous issues concerning its possible location, cost, financing, and facilities.
  • Enhancement of educational opportunities in Reston from high-tech vocational training to bringing a major graduate university technology campus to Reston’s urban core, and tackling tough issues in protecting our environment as Reston continues to grow and re- develop.

To qualify for a position on the RCA Board of Directors, applicants must live in Reston as defined by the Reston special tax district (includes Reston Town Center and other non-RA areas); be at least 16 years old; and  complete and submit an application by Feb. 17 to Colin Mills at [email protected].
