The Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce has formally sought from the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors dedicated seats on the Board of Governors of the Reston Community Center in a number proportionate to the share of property taxes collected for RCC’s benefit from Reston businesses. The RCC board now consists of nine adult members and two youth members. Since the percentage of the RCC tax borne by businesses is currently about 43%, the Chamber’s proposal would add 9 new members to the RCC board to be selected by the supervisors presumably upon recommendation of the Chamber board or of a Chamber-organized committee of all business entities owning real estate within the RCC district. Another solution involving reshuffling of existing seats would require the supervisors to ignore some of the uncontested winners of October’s preference poll.
