May 17, 2016
There's a new face for rec in Breck.
On May 16, Breckenridge town manager Rick Holman announced the promotion of Scott Reid to serve as the director of recreation for the town. Reid currently heads up the open space and trails division in the Breckenridge Community Development/Planning Department.
"It's truly a testament to the town's strong leadership culture that we are able to promote great talent within our ranks," Holman said. "Scott has proven himself capable for this new challenge and I am excited to see him continue to grow within our organization. He takes over a thriving recreation department with a wonderful staff, plus great facilities and programs."
Reid is no stranger to the town's inner workings. He has worked for the town for over 10 years in the open space and trails division, where he managed all aspects of the program, including land acquisitions, natural surface trail construction and management, river restoration and community partnerships. Prior to working for the town, Reid worked for Summit County's open space department, managing the rec path and natural surface trail program.
Reid's formal education includes a master's degree from Virginia Tech in Park and Recreational Resource Management. He has additional experience as a ski patroller, an outdoor education instructor and the education director for the Leave No Trace Center for outdoor ethics.
"I welcome the opportunity to serve the Breckenridge community as the director of recreation," Reid said. "As the recreation department considers its next 25 years of existence, I look forward to providing leadership to support the recreational interests of the Breckenridge and Summit County citizens and visitors."
