A note from your civic association president...

Happy Holidays from your Tara Leeway Heights Civic Association neighbors! Your TLHCA board of directors wishes for all a safe festive season responsibly shared with family and friends.

Since our summer printed newsletter landed in your real mailboxes in July, it certainly seems that a lot has happened in our neighborhood.

The two massive public works projects just east and west of us have made significant, visible progress. Virginia Hospital Center’s big expansion on the old Edison site remains on track. And our new neighborhood school is also set for its scheduled opening September 1, 2021. I have an exciting, much more detailed report for you below on developments around the new school.

We are continuing our series of conversations with our Westover merchants in this newsletter. This time, we speak with the owner of the Westover Market and Beer Garden.

Efforts continue to rename and reimagine Lee Highway. We have an update for you on that effort.

And as Christmas draws near in this time of COVID, we offer profiles of a couple of local organizations who assist those in the greatest need.

Please consider joining our membership ranks. A form to do so is enclosed below. And don’t forget our next meeting is January 5 at 7:00!

On behalf of all of your TLHCA board members, please accept this heartfelt wish for health and happiness for you and your families.

John Ford, President, Tara-Leeway Heights Civic Association

Check out our Winter newsletter for the latest updates on Renaming Lee Highway, the Westover shops, our new Elementary School, and an update on how to help our neighbors in need.

2020 Civic Association Dues

Many residents are unaware of our civic association and our role in helping the Tara-Leeway community. Well, the board is working to change that - and we encourage you to check out our website for the basics on what we seek to do on your behalf. Aside from helping address that nagging tree in the sidewalk or representing your interests to county staff, we aim to host or facilitate more social events and opportunities to engage as many as possible in civic activities. These things cost money however, so we kindly ask for a small annual contribution of $10.00, which can be paid for one or two years at a time.

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.
Pay with PayPal
