Reston Association recently kicked off a comprehensive evaluation of its recreational facilities. The organization is seeking members for a new recreational facilities working group that will evaluate the current inventory, condition and usage of RA facilities.
Members who are interested in applying should do so by March 31. Interviews will be conducted by the Board Operations Committee on May 4 at 6:30 p.m. at RA headquarters (12001 Sunrise Valley Drive). The application is available online.
The workgroup is tasked with the following:
- Evaluate the number, condition and use of facilities like pools, tennis, ballfields, playgrounds and pavilions
- Review the long-term operational, maintenance and capital costs for RA facilities
- Evaluate usage trends for RA facilities using existing data
- Recommend to the board a process for closing or converting existing facilities to other uses.
The Park & Recreation Advisory Committee is temporarily suspended until Feb. 2021 as the new workgroup begins the analysis.
