The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) has a couple of new leaders.
NVTA plans transportation projects that will impact Northern Virginia.
Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Chair Phyllis Randall will be Chair for 2020.
Randall is replacing outgoing Coles District Supervisor Marty Nohe, according to a release from NVTA.
“It has been an honor and privilege to serve Northern Virginians and work with such fantastic leaders in the region. Being a part of an entity that is focused on keeping the region moving and less time on roadways, has be[en] extremely rewarding.” Nohe said in a release. “I will always cherish my time with the Authority, and I have no doubt Northern Virginia will be in capable hands with Chair Randall taking the helm.”
City of Manassas Mayor Hal Parrish was voted to serve as Vice Chair.
Parrish is also the Finance Committee Chair and became a member when the Virginia General Assembly established NVTA 17 years ago.
“The Authority’s unique approach to addressing congestion through regionalism is a shining example of how collaboration across jurisdictional lines can truly have an impact on Northern Virginians and the D.C. region as a whole,” Parrish said in a release.
Dumfries Mayor Derrick Wood has been reappointed to the Town Representative role.
“It is an honor continuing to serve on the Authority and being a part of some of the most important transportation planning in our region that will shape our infrastructure and help mitigate congestion,” Wood said in a release.
NVTA will host its first meeting for 2020 at 7 p.m. on January 9. Community members will be able to provide input about transportation at an Open House that is being held at the organization’s offices, 3040 Williams Drive, Suite 200 in Fairfax, at 6 p.m.
