Reston Community Center To Conduct Hearings

Reston area residents are invited to public hearings Saturday (Feb. 11) and Wednesday to discuss the future of the Reston Community Center.

The key issues, according to a letter sent to residents, "concern the relative balance between the benefits the center affords its community and the tax burden it imposes, and the extent of consensus among various segments of Reston as to whether the current balance is appropriate."

The community center is supported by residents of Small Tax District No. 5. They pay an additional 5.2 cents for each $100 of assessed value on real estate to fund the center. The district includes Reston and some adjacent neighborhoods.

Other issues under consideration are sources of funding, the tax rate, boundaries of the tax district and the pricing of programs.

Written comments can be sent by e-mail to . Individuals speaking at the meetings will be allotted two minutes; speakers representing an organization will be allowed three minutes.

Saturday's hearing is at 1 p.m. at the Hunters Woods center, 2310 Colts Neck Rd. The Wednesday hearing is at 7 p.m. at the Lake Anne location, 1609-A Washington Plaza. For more information, call 703-476-4500.
