RCA Updates (May 2017)
As always, please share these updates with neighbors who may not be receiving the information (and let us know if email addresses need to be updated, etc.).
Next Meeting. The next Rosemont Citizens Association meeting will be on Monday, June 5, 7:30pm at the Commonwealth Baptist Church (700 Commonwealth Avenue – entrance at the rear). We will have two speakers – 1) from Alexandria Renew Enterprises, to discuss the water recovery/discharge services that the company provides for the City of Alexandria; and 2) from Alexandria T&ES’s Stormwater Management program, to discuss the fee for stormwater adopted as part of the City’s 2018 budget and its implications for homeowners. Hope to see you there!
Volunteers Needed. We would like to resume the annual tradition of holding a Fourth of July event at Maury Elementary, but a volunteer is need to take the lead role in organizing the event. Please let us know if you’re interested – there should be plenty of “old hands” to help.
