Lynhaven's Ribbon Cutting
Was a Success!
On July 26th, Wesley Housing, Vice Mayor Justin Wilson, Alexandria officials, our project partners, and residents gathered for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of Lynhaven Apartments renovation. The rehabilitation included both exterior and interior improvements to the affordable 28-unit garden apartment community.
Lynhaven residents are thrilled with the upgrades. "Living across the street from the rec center and being so close to the Latino market and restaurants ... our home is a blessing for so many reasons," said mother of three, Mirabelle.

New flooring, cleanliness, and the aesthetics of the units are favorite features among residents. Twelve-year-old Marta said, "My favorite part of the renovation is I get to live in a brand new home I never expected to have."

Wesley and Bozzuto Selected for Cameron Valley Redevelopment
Beginning in 2014, the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority (ARHA) sought partners to assist with the redevelopment of five of its communities. Recently, ARHA selected The Bozzuto Group and Wesley Housing as the top-ranked developer for the redevelopment of its Cameron Valley site. The site is currently comprised of 40 rental units built in 1985. ARHA and Bozzuto-Wesley are starting negotiations on a term sheet that will define their roles in this exciting project. 

*Correction: The timeline for this project was erroneously reported in a previous eNEWS distribution. A schedule for the Cameron Valley project has not been set. 
Youth Celebrate the Olympics at Summer Camp!
This year, Wesley's Summer Camp is Olympics-themed. Rising 1st through 6th graders are exploring career paths, doing hands-on science projects, and learning new skills that build confidence.

Combating Summer Learning Loss
Keeping our youth engaged in educational activities helps them stay on track for success over summer break. Campers have been participating in research and writing projects about the history and traditions of the Olympics, cultural diversity represented at the games, good sportsmanship, and their personal reflections.
A favorite part of camp is the daily STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) class provided by engineering students. Campers are working on their own "robots" (above) and have followed step-by-step instructions to build models. They also created straw "rockets" after learning about aerodynamics.
