Holiday Dessert Meet & Greet

Thanks to all who came out to possibly the “first annual” Holiday Meet & Greet!  In our eyes, it was a tremendous success, and I loved having the opportunity to host it. 
If you left anything behind and would like to claim it, please send me an email at  We can make arrangements.  There is a very nice red and white umbrella that was left behind as well.  I am sure it wants to be returned to the proper owner.
Thanks again and HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!!

Arlington Public Schools Survey

Exerpt from an email forwarded from Lynn Durbin:

Dear Friends and Neighbors:
These are extraordinary times for our nation, our state and our community. Everywhere you turn, you hear or read stories about how our national economy is affecting all walks of life, and the Arlington Public Schools is no exception.
Based on the most recent revenue forecasts from the state and county, APS is facing as much as a $47 million deficit for the 2010-11 school year. It is imperative that we continue our efforts to ensure a high quality education for our children while crafting a fiscally-sound plan for the coming school year.
Over the past few months, APS has held a number of community conversations and forums about the budget challenges that we face. If you haven’t attended one of those meetings, or even if you have attended but still have additional ideas, please take the time to complete our online budget survey to share your ideas and viewpoint. The survey is at
Although I can’t promise that we will implement everyone’s ideas, all feedback is welcome. The information from the survey will help me as I work with staff in the coming weeks to develop a budget proposal that helps the Arlington Public Schools continue to provide excellent support for our community’s greatest asset – our children.

Columbia Pike Eastbound Lane Closure

Exerpt from an email from Pamela Holcomb, Managing Director Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization (CPRO) to:

For those interested, here is a bit more information re: the construction
underway at the corner of Columbia Pike and S. Quinn Streets. The work
going on at this location is a part of what is called the "Gravity 3 Water
Main" project that is being undertaken by the County's Water Sewer & Streets
Division. It involves the installation of a new 20" water main originating
from the north side of the County, down Washington Blvd., crossing Columbia
Pike and heading south across the golf course, etc. As already noted, the
work involves some lane closures in order to contain the work area and
provide optimum safety for traffic and pedestrians. The lane closures will
be both the Southbound lane from Quinn St. to 10th St. and Columbia Pike
(headed East) from S. Rolfe to S. Quinn. We do not have information on the
exact length of time these lane closures will be in effect but have been
informed that construction work in this particular area is supposed to
extend to the month of October. We will report on the status of the project
in our September CPRO e-newsletter.

Citizen Emergency Response Training Begins in September

Individuals who live and/or work in Arlington County are invited to participate in Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training. The eight-week course, which follows a national curriculum, trains citizens to be safer in their own home and workplace and to save and sustain lives in the event of major disasters. Topics covered include disaster preparedness, disaster medical operations, fire suppression and utility shut-off, disaster psychology, team organization and terrorism. Participants must be at least 18 years old (16 and up if accompanied by an adult) and able to participate in all aspects of the training, some of which requires lifting and carrying. Two courses, which meet six weeknights and two Saturdays, are scheduled to begin in September. To-date, over 400 County residents have completed this free training, many of whom are active members of neighborhood teams. Contact for additional information.

Arlington View Clean Up Day: Saturday September 19th

Exerpt from an email from Jorge Laura, Housing Outreach Program Coordinator/ Inspector, to Eugene Hubbard, President of the Arlington View Civic Association:

Dear Mr. Hubbard:

After consultation with the office of Environmental Services and the Neighborhood Strategic Areas (NSA) inspector, I am pleased to inform you that Arlington View has been selected for a Neighborhood Clean-up day. Please understand that we are not able to offer this program every year to your neighborhood.

The purpose of the NSA Clean up Program is to encourage resident involvement in neighborhood problem solving, particularly related to improving the environment. The program will improve the appearance of the neighborhoods by reducing the accumulation of discarded household goods, excess building materials, used recreational equipment and some automobile parts accumulated in private property. The clean up event may be paired with other neighborhood event such as a community picnic, yard sale, or other activities that involve residents and owners from all segments of the community to enhance community pride.
