Please provide your name, address and e-mail and $15 with your check made out to “Bluemont Civic Association” to BCA Treasurer, PO Box 5134, Arlington, VA 22205. All information is for BCA use only. When we can resume membership meetings in person, dues can be paid at meetings.
A one-year use permit review associated with SP#57 to provide language instruction for up to 40 children (SemSem School), located at 4600 N. Fairfax Drive, is anticipated to be considered for the October 17, 2020 County Board meeting. The assigned planner, Anika Chowdhury, is requesting input on the referenced proposal, as this site is within Bluemont Civic Association and adjacent Ballston-Virginia Square Civic Association and Waycroft-Woodlawn Civic Association. The planner requests our comments by Monday, September 21, 2020. Because the short notice provided by the County does not allow time for the civic association's General Membership to meet to consider this request, interested neighbors are encouraged to contact Annika Chowdhury directly, and are welcome to copy the Bluemont Civic Association.
