Thanks to the Falls Church News-Press for their mention of volunteers needed by our organization. We appreciate their coverage of the Greater Falls Church area, including Seven Corners, Timber, Greenway Downs, and our own Jefferson Village neighborhood!
Here is a link to the mini-article for those wanting to see! https://fcnp.com/2020/01/30/jefferson-village-group-seeking-volunteers/
Although nothing superb, Dominion Power's crew completed repairs to the streetlight at the corner of Marshall and Carlton in less than two weeks. Not a huge change but perhaps making that corner a bit safer for pedestrians in the evenings.
If there is a streetlight out in your area, residents can contact Fairfax County and Dominion to have the situation corrected. The website for links and more info is: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/publicworks/capital-projects/report-streetlight-outage.
On Wednesday, January 22nd some of our members attended an open house at the Providence District center presented by Supervisor Dalia Palchik. Residents from all over the district dropped in with more than 100 people in attendance. This included several members of last year's primary contest, now eager to contribute in their own capacities.
While enjoying some delicious refreshments, residents were given an opportunity to mark their homes on the map of the district and to record their concerns on a posting board for others to view. In addition, everyone enjoyed meeting the Supervisor's new staff, including Vanessa Simpson, Outreach Director for the eastern portion of the district. Thanks again to all!
As you have probably noticed, the JVCA has updated the community website. In addition to a more cost-effective hosting service, the site also features a streamlined format with a focus on information about the neighborhood, communication to residents, and even sharing on the blog posting. Welcome!
Be sure to check out the changing content of the various pages. Also, we encourage everyone to comment as often as possible on blog posts or even submit your own content for consideration in this space. The website is about all of us and letting others know what a great community Jefferson Village is to call home.
