Village News, 7/18/19

Dear West Springfield Village Neighbor / Friend,

Not much this week. Sorry to those who received more than one email last Thursday. Yet another email experiment failed, but we continue trying. 

National Night Out / Ice Cream Social – Tuesday, 6 August from 6 – 8:00 PM at the Village West Pool. We will again co-sponsor an ice cream social with the Village West Pool as our National Night Out. It will be open to all in the village, regardless of membership in our Civic Association or in the Pool. Pool Board of Directors will open the pool to all for swimming and ice cream starting at 5:00 PM and ending at 8:00 PM. I mean FREE ICE CREAM and a chance to SWIM – who wouldn’t want to join in the fun? 

Property Acquisition Rolling Road Homes – Homeowners along Rolling Road will be visited later this year by VDOT to discuss acquiring part of your property or simply moving the current utility easement back toward your front door. You may want to be prepared with a good plat drawing, your latest property assessment and a general understanding of eminent domain and easements. The Board of Directors of Kenwood Homeowners Association (townhomes on west side of RR near Old Keene Mill Road) are consulting with a lawyer and they invite you to join their case and to help share the lawyer’s costs. If you are interested, send an email to them at and please put “Rolling Road Expansion” in the subject line.

Glass Recycling – The purple bin is now in the back lot at the West Springfield Government Center and ready for your glass. Bill & Carrie Mast, 6805 Landor Lane are willing to accept your glass bottles, haul them to the purple container at West Springfield Government Center or to the I-95 Landfill to convert them back into a useful product instead of adding more to the landfill. For more information and additional locations of these purple bins - https://www.fairfaxcountygov/publicworks/news/regional-approach-glass-recycling-leads-creation-purple-can-club.
