Reston Association/Credit: RAThe 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.

    There are several other key items on the agenda that those who want to know what’s going on before it happens might want to tune in to watch:

    7:25 pm – Multimodal Transportation Committee re: proposed letter re: Soapstone Crossing
    7:40 pm – Land Use – Expectations re: new development in Reston by RA’s Land Use Attorney
    8:15 pm – Fairfax County Dept. of Transportation presents information on the Funding Plan for the Grid of Streets. Learn how & why many of your neighbors (or you depending on where you live) are about to receive a new tax for the New Year. Perhaps you are in favor of it, perhaps against it, but don’t say you weren’t told about it!

    You can watch it live (or later) at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-OS1uo0gZU.
    All times are approximate.

        Correct. The meeting starts tonight at 6:30 p.m. You can view it after the fact, but not before!

          Actually, it is streamed, so you can watch live starting at 6:30PM, but it will probably affect your digestion of dinner.
