Needed BVSCA Member Volunteers for Membership Year 2006-2007

The Association is still searching for BVSCA members to step forward and volunteer for the position of Treasurer and Editor of the BVSCA Newsletter. Please help if you can. If are interested, please contact Dennis Burr by e-mail at, or call (703) 841-1679.

Presentation on the Revised Funeral Home Site Plan

In July 2005, the Arlington County Board approved a Site Plan for 135 unit mixed use project at the site of the Arlington Funeral Home (N. Quincy Street at Fairfax Drive). This mixed use project was also known as the Virginia Square Park Condominiums and the approved project included a 12 story building, 2,648 square feet of retail space, and 8,193 square foot "black box" theater. The existing Funeral Home would remain in place. The developer of the project, Trammell Crow Residential, sold the project to WCI Communities after the Site Plan was approved.

Representatives of the Site Plan Applicant will present their proposed revised Site Plan for this project, which will include several innovative approaches and changes. Please attend the meeting and express your views on their proposed revised plan.

Join BVSCA Today - Stronger Homeowner's Association Guarantees Better Neighborhood!

One BVSCA goal for this year is to increase membership and encourage BVSCA residents to participate in their Civic Association. This includes new members just learning about BVSCA and all previous members who have lost touch. There are several of you - you know who you are. BVSCA needs you. Your experience, knowledge and voice are invaluable to the Association.

The purpose of BVSCA is "to take action to protect and promote the welfare and livability of the Ballston-Virginia Square Civic Association's neighborhoods in particular, and in Arlington, in general" (By-laws of BVSCA). Only with a large, active and vocal membership can BVSCA be effective in its dealings with the County officials.

Residents can join by filling out the membership application and paying membership dues. You can do this either by 1) coming to a BVSCA meeting, or 2) by mail. The membership application is on BVSCA's web page and on the front of BVSCA newsletters.

Dues are $10 per person. Dues are payable when first joining and are renewable each year on or before the anniversary of that date. New members and members who have not paid their dues in the last three years must wait 30 days after paying their dues before receiving voting privileges. Dues are used to help fund the Association's activities and sponsored events. Join the BVSCA today!
