      Park Clean-up Volunteers Wanted

      Lauren Trabert, a TRCA Executive Committee member, is once again heading up our efforts as part of the Alexandria City's Adopt-a-Park program for Angel Park (201 West Taylor Run Parkway), Chinquapin
      Park (3210 King Street), and our smallest area park at 701 Upland Place. Each weekend between April and November, members of the TRCA are cleaning up these parks as part of the city's beautification efforts
      and a city-wide competition for funds so that we may improve the open spaces of Taylor Run. Last year,
      the TRCA earned $1,865 for its clean-up efforts. Email Lauren (laurentrabert@gmail.com) if you are
      interested in signing up. She sends out an informative email on the Thursday prior to your scheduled clean-up.

    Woodbine Concept Plan Submitted

    Neighbors continue to oppose any rezoning

    On June 26, 2014, a small group of neighbors representing the Taylor Run Citizens' Association (TRCA) met with members of the Planning and Zoning Office at city hall to discuss a June 13, 2014 Concept Proposal submitted by King Street, LLC., the group representing the developers for the Woodbine property. The most recent plan makes changes to the proposed building but still does not fit with the neighborhood. TRCA remains strongly opposed to the rezoning of the 1.3 acre lot located at 2811 King Street.  It is currently zoned for residential development (R8) and the surrounding neighbors are unanimous in their belief that it should remain so. The RB zoning designation that the developer now requests is for “nonresidential uses of a noncommercial nature" (municode 3-701).

    Meetings

    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.
