Snowblowers available from the County

Snowblowers available from the County

Help Clear Neighborhood Snow this Season!

TLHCA is seeking a group of volunteers who would be willing to manage a snowblower on behalf of the civic association for the 2016-17 winter season. If interested please email by Sunday October 2.

See County's announcement below for more information.

The Department of Parks and Recreation lends a limited number of snow blowers to civic associations and community groups, increasing the number of passable sidewalks during snow events. Our goal is to ensure snow blowers are geographically distributed throughout the county. Snow blowers are loaned to groups who agree to plow for the public good and who meet specific criteria. Applications due Oct. 15; trainings are on Nov. 2 and 5. Learn more at

Westover Garden Apartments Update

After the recent demolition of several garden apartment buildings in Westover to make room for new townhomes, the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing (APAH) is stepping in to purchase several buildings and plans to keep rents affordable for these buildings into the future. The purchase will require a loan from Arlington's Affordable Housing Investment Fund (AHIF), which will need to be approved by the County Board at its meeting later this month.

The County's Historic Affairs and Landmark Review Board (HALRB) is also considering whether to place the Westover neighborhood into a local historic district. The historic district proposal does not impact any property in the Tara-Leeway Heights Civic Association boundaries. For more information visit the County's Westover Neighborhood Study page.
