BALLSTON-VIRGINIA SQUARE

Civic Association Legacy Home Page



Introduction

Effective November 27, 2010, the Ballston-Virginia Square Civic Association (BVSCA) has a new homepage: www.ballstoncivic.org. The new website has information about upcoming meetings, area news, links to other important information concerning the Civic Association and an ability for citizens to submit concerns/issues from the site. Also, our blog will provide updated information regarding issues facing our community. This will continue to be a work in progress. If you have suggestions, please let us know, so we can make our new website the best tool possible for the Civic Association. If you have ideas, send us an email at info@ballstoncivic.org.

The Ballston-Virginia Square Civic Association community is located in the heart of Arlington County, Virginia. The boundaries of the BVSCA community are Glebe Road on the west, Kirkwood Road on the east, Route I-66 on the north, and Wilson Boulevard on the south. The BVSCA community is predominately a residential neighborhood with older single-family homes and small low-rise apartments and newer condominiums and townhouses. In 1979, the Orange Line of the Metrorail system brought two Metro subway stations to our area. This has resulted in high-rise development of office and condominiums along the Metro Corridor, such as the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) Training Center, Lexington Square Condominiums, Tower Villas Condominiums, Virginia Square Condominiums, and Virginia Square Plaza Apartments near the Virginia Square-GMU Metrorail station; and the National Science Foundation, Alta Vista Condominiums, the Ballston Place Apartments, Richmond Square Apartments and The Jefferson by Marriott -- a senior living condominium community near the Ballston-MU Metrorail station.

Beginning in 1996, a major expansion of the George Mason University Arlington Campus has been in process near the Virginia Square Metro stop. Also, several new townhouse projects have been developed in recent years between Washington Boulevard, North 11th Street, and North Fairfax Drive.

The BVSCA community contains three parks, three schools, the Arlington County Central Library, Arlington's School Administration Building, and Arlington's Planetarium. Our community also contains four churches, a YMCA, the Ballston Commons Shopping Center, numerous retail establishments, and very fine local restaurants. Also, close by is the Virginia Hospital Center; excellent bike trails linking to Mount Vernon and Front Royal, Virginia; and Fort C.F. Smith, one of the best preserved remains of a Civil War fort located in the Washington, D.C. area (see the BVSCA Newsletter September/October 1994 described below for additional details about this property's historical significance).

Our civic association participates in public meetings on important issues affecting our neighborhood. For example, we participate in County Board meetings, Arlington County Planning Commission meetings, Arlington County Civic Federation meetings, and Arlington County legislative hearings. The Ballston-Virginia Square Civic Association sponsors increased public participation in our community with formal surveys of our members on important issues affecting our community; candidates night debates; presentations by applicant representatives on proposed site plan and development projects; and discussions on issues of concern affecting our community (e.g., crime, taxes, bonds, parking/traffic issues, aggressive panhandling, and County spending priorities).
