• Park CleanUp ShoppingCartBe a TRAC Star with TRCA!

    Spring is here and in honor of Earth Day, TRCA is trying something new. Please join us on Sunday, April 24th
    at 12:00 p.m.
    for the inaugural Taylor Run Annual Cleanup (TRAC). Meet us at either Chinquapin Recreation Center or Angel Park, whichever is most convenient. We will work our way along the Taylor Run waterway and meet in the middle. Gloves, bags, snacks, and 
    beverages will be provided. Now's the time to pull out those waders! Bring the family and come out and do something great for the neighborhood! 

    Volunteers will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a $25 gift card from Greenstreet Gardens, a native flowering plant, and other great prizes. We'll also have goody bags for the kids.

     Thanks to our sponsors: Greenstreet Gardens, Starbucks, Sugar Shack Donuts, Safeway, and The Fresh Market.

    GW MemorialTRCA's Annual Spring Meeting 

    TRCA's Annual Spring Meeting is Monday, April 11 at the George Washington Masonic National Memorial (101 Callahan Drive) from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Bob Garbacz of the city's Department of Transportation & Environmental Services will discuss changes to and issues with traffic patterns in our neighborhood.

    We will also hold elections for the TRCA Executive Committee.  We currently have a few open positions and would love to
    hear from residents who want to help their neighborhood. We are currently underrepresented in areas near Taylor Run itself,
    in King's Cloister, and on the northeastern boundaries of our neighborhood. We are looking for people who are willing to push dialogue with the city of Alexandria, whether your focus is on transportation or crime, parks or education. The time commitment varies based on the role(s) that you want to take. We meet once a month save for during the summer, and we want to hear from you. Email TaylorRunCA@gmail.com for more information or to have your name on the April slate.
