As Noted in our Post No 2, Fairfax has two Parks & Recreation agencies, the Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA), and the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services (NCS), formerly Community and Recreation Services (CRS).
Through their recreation centers (FCPA) and community centers (NCS), both agencies offer recreation facilities and programs. Teen and senior centers are housed at NCS recreation centers.
The agencies’ other primary missions are nature preservation (FCPA), historic preservation (FCPA) and social services (NCS). FCPA is run by an appointed board; NCS is under the County Executive.
This to propose merging one or more of their functions.
