Alexandria’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Activities is proposing a new quarter-mile walking trail, synthetic turf field, dog park, public orchard and many more amenities to Chinquapin Park as part of its draft improvement plan.
Residents are encouraged to comment and state their preferences on the draft plan through an online survey. Additional details available here.
The membership year runs from January 1 through December 31, and the annual dues are $15 per household. The TRCA utilizes these dues for several purposes, including funding scholarships, the neighborhood fall party, National Night Out, and Earth Day event(s). Dues also are used to pay for printing the newsletters, special events, and maintenance of the TRCA website.
Woodbine nursing home
TRCA has been informed that Cambridge Healthcare, owner of Woodbine Nursing Home on King Street, is planning to expand their facility by building a 4-story Assisted Living facility on the vacant lot adjacent to the current Woodbine building. As this plan may affect residents in the TRCA community, the TRCA looks forward to serving all residents of the area in better understanding Cambridge Healthcare’s proposal and its potential impact on our neighborhood.
The TRCA holds a general membership meeting each fall and spring at the George Washington National Masonic Memorial. Meetings usually last between one and two hours. The Executive Committee meets monthly with the exception of June, July and August, as well as, November and December.
