Community Meeting on February 16 - Resurrection Lutheran
TLHCA is holding a community meeting on Feb. 16th at 7:00 pm at Resurrection Lutheran to discuss several Arlington events and initiatives. The agenda will include:
Arlington's Community Facilities - Ginger Brown, Co-Chair of the recent Community Facilities Study, will be on hand to provide an update on the study and the next steps.
Public Safety Update - Corporal Beth Lennon will provide an update on recent police and public safety issues in the neighborhood.
Neighborhood Conservation Improvements - Hear an update on the County's process and share ideas for needed improvements.
Virginia Hospital Center Status - Our liaison will provide a brief update on the expansion plans and process.
Other Neighborhood Issues - Are there other issues you'd like to discuss? Civic Association board members will be available to answer questions and provide updates on other activities and neighborhood issues.
Ideas for Neighborhood Improvements?
TLHCA will be recommending our next neighborhood conservation improvement project this spring. Examples of past projects include the Big Walnut Park improvements and the ongoing (almost complete) improvements along Patrick Henry Drive. Do you have an idea for a new project in the Tara-Leeway Heights neighborhood? If so, send us your idea or attend one of our upcoming board or community meetings.
Thank you to all of those who have paid dues to the TLHCA for the 2015-2016 year. This year's membership has been below prior years so our income has declined as a result. We use these dues to support neighborhood social events, community meetings, and communication, so please support our efforts!
Dues are $10.00 per year. If you have not yet paid your dues, please click on the link below to pay via PayPal. Dues payments can also be sent to PO Box 50022, Arlington, VA 22205.
In December, the County approved an agreement that will grant Virginia Hospital Center an option to purchase the County-owned land north of the hospital. Presentations on conceptual ideas for the expansion are expected over the next several months.
In November, the County held a four-day community visioning charrette (workshop) with area residents, facilitated by a nationally recognized design firm. The County's design consultants will present the results of the charrette on Saturday, February 6, Yorktown High School, 10 am to 1 pm.
