Southgate Community Center In Reston To Be Renamed

Southgate Community Center in Reston may be getting a new name soon. Fairfax CountySupervisor Walter L. Alcorn (D-Hunter Mill District) presented a Board Matter at the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Meeting of May 4 that staff from the Department of Neighborhood and Community Services (NCS) work with the community to rename Southgate Community Center in recognition of Supervisor Catherine M. Hudgins. The Board unanimously approved the motion. According to Reston Connection, "Southgate Community Center (SGCC) is located at 12125 Pinecrest Rd, Reston. Fairfax County operates it on land leased for free owned by Reston Association. When reading the Board Matter, Alcorn said that Hudgins "worked tirelessly to negotiate the land lease, ...secure the financing, review the building design, monitor its construction, and support the center's program activities.  "One of Supervisor Hudgins' biggest accomplishments and one that is a lasting legacy is the re-creation of the Southgate Community Center as a County-owned facility in Reston in 2006," Alcorn said." As per Reston Connection, "During Covid-19, the Center hosts a School-Aged Children's program through the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood & Community Services and offers online youth programming created by the Center's management staff. IN 2006, Gerald E. Connolly (D), then Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, attended the Center's Grand Opening. In 2021, U.S. Congressman Gerald E. Connolly (D-11) recalled the work Hudgins put in to secure the Center and his thoughts about renaming it in her honor."
