BVSCA Membership Meeting March 2007
Place: BVSCA's community room located on N.Utah Street between the Willow Restaurant and the Windsor Plaza condominiums.
At our next Membership Meeting, the Association will discuss the latest status of the revised Funeral Home Site Plan, including the potential impact of the originally approved site plan requirements, such as the affordable housing component of these requirements, and how the proposed development has been affected. BVSCA representatives Cliff Chieffo and Lew Gulick will be reporting back on the results of their latest coordination with County Staff on this project.
We have been provided with an inventory report to use as a planning tool. It contains maps that show the status of our curbs, gutters, and sidewalks and related features. There is a park survey that will help us identify additional needs for parks within Ballston Virginia Square and parks that we use beyond our neighborhood area. Helpful maps and material has been given to us covering our street lighting and our traffic calming features. Included is a framework for making estimates of BVSCA needs that will simplify our task. We are not being asked to establish priorities at this time. The task for now is to identify infrastructure requirements for BVSCA for use in planning developments and construction in the future. These data will permit the County to allocate funds for work. Obviously, the converse is true as well; if we DON'T use these materials to set some priorities, or a "wish list", if you will, we won't be getting any funding for projects we deem important to the entire BVSCA area.
First, we want to verify the information that has provided for us in the maps and charts. Preliminary observation and evaluation shows some information and data to be very accurate. Refinement will be necessary in some material to reflect recent and ongoing construction within BVSCA. After that, our team can collect information regarding the work we would like to see accomplished that has not been reflected in the County's maps and worksheets. We will cross check with our Neighborhood Plan and other documents to ensure that we have covered everything about where we live as thoroughly as we can.
Priorities have not been requested at this point. That will come after we have outlined the work needed in BVSCA. Right now we need BVSCA members and citizens to volunteer time to work on our NIP. What we provide to the County will heavily influence the improvements we can expect in the coming years. County staff members will visit with us during BVSCA meetings. We look forward to furnishing quality information to the County regarding our infrastructure needs.
