The October Long Range Planning Committee meeting (LRP) began discussions on future alternatives for a community center either via expansion and possible purchase of the Grange/Old Schoolhouse or possibly building a new one on land in the center of Great Falls already owned by the County. Probably, a new community organization which need to be formed which can rent to non-profit organizations as well as to others for weddings, private meetings, conferences, etc. This discussion will continue at the next LRP meeting scheduled for Tuesday, November 30. The next meeting also will briefly cover potential future bond local usages.
During the recent debate between Dranesville Supervisor candidates, both supported the GFCA resolution for prompt immediate free use of the Old Schoolhouse on weekday evenings by non-profit organizations. LRP will follow-up with the FCPA and all Supervisors. LRP also will again send the Supervisor candidates a list of items and estimated cost not covered in the recently completed Grange interior and exterior improvements.
