The Reston Association’s Board of Directors is slated to hold its latest meeting tomorrow evening, with discussion on parks and recreation and community engagement committee appointees.
Parks and Recreation Looks to Form Sports Council
The board is is expected to vote to adopt the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee’s 2017 goals and recommendations, which it presented in October.
Among them, PRAC has recommended the formation of a Sports Council consisting of representatives from several area sports organizations. The council would work to coordinate the use of Reston facilities and manage a community calendar of events, among other goals.
The council also would help keep RA staff informed of needed improvements and repairs for facilities and work with staff to ensure proper lighting for outdoor facilities and paths.
The committee’s recommendations are not expected to have any effect on the RA’s budget. But the board would consider any funding needs that may arise.
Community Engagement Advisory Committee Appointments to Get Vote
The board is expected to vote on the appointments of Colin Mills and Carol Nahorniak as the chair and vice-chair, respectively, for the board’s Community Engagement Advisory Committee for terms of one year.
Nahorniak is an incumbent member of the committee, and works at Myers Public Relations, which represents Reston Town Center.
Mills has served as the committee’s chair for the past two years, and has sat on other civic boards, including the Reston Citizen’s Association and the Reston Community Center’s Board of Governors.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at RA Headquarters (12001 Sunrise Valley Drive) at 6:30 p.m. and is open to the public. A portion of the meeting will allow for locals’ comments.
