  • Nelly Custis Park Planning. The Nelly Custis Design Working Group begins its efforts on June 7.  A design should be completed late summer or early fall with the hope to bring it to the Civic Association for approval later this fall.  The timeline will be posted on the project’s web site in the near future. Visit https://projects.arlingtonva.us/projects/nelly-custis-park/for updates.
  • Water Pollution Control Plant. A consultant for the Water Pollution Control Plant will talk about the master plan for dealing with solids at the plant. County staff have identified four options, from simply upgrading the current process to building a digester to generate biogas to power the plant or perhaps as fuel for buses. Although staff believe emissions from biogas combustion would be minimal, burning of biogas at the plant would represent a continuous point source of emissions affecting air quality in the immediate area. However, the results of an air quality modeling study will not be known until after the master plan is finalized.A “regional solution” involves trucking biosolids to the nearby Blue Plains plant in DC. This could reduce initial capital investment and point sources of emissions. Staff is investigating this solution, but it is currently not being considered as an option in the master plan.In all, there appears to be a desire to work collaboratively with the community, but the neighborhood will have to stay engaged and push for the final master plan to include responses to the air quality study and regional solution.
  • Planning for the Boo-Ha-Ha Festival. Planning is well underway for the fall festival held in October each year. Jenny Sullivan will update us on plans to increase sponsorship, provide a mechanism for neighbors to donate, recruit volunteers and performers, etc.
