Reston Citizens Association (RCA) today announced elections between May 20 and June 20 for four district seats on its board of directors. Restonians interested in joining the RCA Board are invited to file completed candidate forms by May 13, 2016.
The Reston Citizens Association (RCA) is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c) 4 corporation serving over 60,000 people who live in Reston. Founded in 1967, RCA is the only community-wide, non-partisan, and action-oriented organization in which everyone that lives, works and plays in Reston has a voice. RCA comprises a 13-member Board of Directors elected by Reston residents with the directors serving three-year terms.
“Rapid development and how it could affect Reston’s infrastructure, open spaces, and quality life have been at the forefront for Reston and RCA in 2015-16. The future of Tall Oaks village center, St. John’s Woods, Reston Regional Library and Reston Town Center North redevelopment are just a few of the development planning activities that RCA has actively participated in and helped the community stay abreast of the updates and potential impacts to the Reston community”, said Sridhar Ganesan, president, RCA.
“This upcoming year is going to be another exciting one for RCA, as we continue to focus on educating and engaging the community and representing their voice”, he said.
Among other meaningful and impactful issues identified by Board members and citizens are potential FCPS budget shortfalls that could impact Reston schools, the implementation of Fairfax County Police Review Commission’s recommendations, potential development of a County septage facility and continuing issues like preserving Reston National Golf Course.
