Meeting Round-Up. Thanks to all who attended our special meeting at Lena’s Wood-fired Pizza (and to Jason Yates and his team for sponsoring).  In addition to an opportunity to socialize, we had two speakers from the City – Helen Lee, Environmental Program Manager, on recycling issues (see https://www.alexandriava.gov/RecyclingAtHome#acceptable for an updated list on acceptable items) and Thomas Hamed, Transportation Manangement Plan Coordinator, on the upcoming Metro closure. Speaking of which…

Metro Closure. It’s now less than a month away – the Kiss-and-Ride lot already has closed to allow for the relocation of bus stops. Also note that the closure is now expected to run for an additional week in to September. Many details have only recently been announced, such as changes to the HOV rules in Old Town. The official WMATA information page for the project is https://www.wmata.com/service/rail/platformproject/index.cfm.

Spring Cleanup. In most of Rosemont, the spring pick-up day for large/odd items will be Saturday, May 11; north of Braddock Road, it will be Saturday, May 4. See https://www.alexandriava.gov/tes/solidwaste/info/default.aspx?id=84166.  Also, starting May 1, trash/recycling collection swill shift to summer hours, and start as early as 6am.

Fourth of July. Our annual Independence Day event at Maury Elementary School is tentatively on the calendar, but we will need volunteers; we expect to have more details soon.
