Have you weighed in on the proposed indoor recreation center for Baron Cameron Park yet?
Reston Community Center is considering building a facility that would include an indoor pool on several acres of the 68-acre park, which is owned by the Fairfax County Park Authority. Consultants from Brailsford & Dunlavey estimate the center could cost $20 - 33.5 million, depending on the size of the facility.
There are two chances to speak up on Monday:
Reston Community Center will hold a long-range planning committee at RCC Hunters Woods at 6:30 p.m. The RCC Board of Governors will be discussing the Brailsford & Dunlavey feasibility study, which was released last week. There will be a public comment time.

Reston Associaton will hold a special board meeting on Monday at 6 p.m. One of the topics for discussion is RCC's proposal - and if any. Public comments will be at the start of the meeting.
RA Environmental Advisory Committee has recommended to the board of directors that they "ensure that any future development that takes place at Baron Cameron Park results in a positive addition to the community with no negative impact on neighboring Reston Association property. "
The EAC says there should be no increase in stormwater run-off; no net loss to Reston’s tree canopy; no decrease in open space; and that the board should "strongly encourage Reston Community Center to consider other locations for a facility that better align with Fairfax County’s commitment to Transit-Oriented Development " as well as seek developer proffers that would reduce the long-term cost to residents of Small Tax District 5.
