Zoning for Housing. On November 28, the City Council approved changes to the City’z zoning ordinance, which among other changes allows up to four housing units on existing lots zoned for single-family housing, but does not increase the maximum size of the buildings allowed. One of many media stories about the vote: https://dcist.com/story/23/11/29/alexandria-lawmakers-unanimously-eliminate-single-family-only-zoning/.

Holiday Decorations. It’s almost time for our third annual honoring of the best decor around Rosemont, but we need volunteers to help scout out nominees and then to select the winners. If you’re interested in helping, please let us know, or just send us suggestions for houses to view (jol@thirdamendment.com).

Leaf Collection. The second pass (of three) for leaf collection in Rosemont west of Russell Road is scheduled to start on November 28; east of Russell Road on December 4. For more information, please visit https://www.alexandriava.gov/LeafCollection.
