NEWS   

Westover in SocialMedia.   Thanks to relatively new neighbor Hope Miller, the Westover Village  Civic Association is going on line in a big way with new Westover pages on Nextdoor and Facebook.   These will allow all Westover residents to commnicate with each other, and find out about talented plumbers, roofers, and other handy folks in the area, or tips on tasty sushi or Mexican food around here.  Sign up at the sites and join the conversation.    https://westovervillageva.nextdoor.com     https://www.facebook.com/westovervillagearlington   

   Now in its 13th year, the Neighborhood College offers an opportunity for county residents to sharpen and practice their interpersonal communication skills, meet and discuss current issues with elected officials and key professional staff members, and learn how the county government functions and how to become more active and effective in community affairs.
   Participants in previous years have gone on to become active in their neighborhood associations, in volunteer organizations, and as advocates regarding issues of interest to the community.
   In 2012, Neighborhood College participants met with County Board member Walter Tejada, Commissioner of Revenue Ingrid Morroy, County Manager Barbara Donnellan, and head Arlington County Police Department's Criminal Investigations Section Michelle Nuneville and Sheriff Beth Arthur, among others.   Participants also took part in individual projects that included attending Arlington Circuit Court, speaking on an issue of concern to the County Board, learning about plans for affordable housing in Arlington, riding on patrol with members of the Arlington Police, and investigating volunteer opportunities in Arlington County.
    Residents who are committed to improving their neighborhoods, interested in neighborhood issues, and willing to bring energy to neighborhood activities are encouraged to apply.  For more information or an application, interested Arlingtonians may call  703-575-8152      , email
