|Sample Rendering From Four Mile Run Master Plan|
Re-purpose with a purpose: As part of the Special Use Permit process to re-purpose the old Duron building for community use, Parks and Rec Commission hosted a public hearing and presentation last week (agenda). It was a repeat of last-month's presentation, but this was a required step since the last meeting wasn't officially a public hearing. More than a dozen were in attendance and comments were extremely favorable. The SUP should go forward in June.
Bag up that mess: Show up on April 10th at one of three sites to help clean-up Four Mile Run! You'd be amazed what a difference you can make in a couple of hours (I've done this before and always leave feeling like a lot was accomplished).
Save the Date: Last year's inaugural Arlandria Clean-Up/Gardening Day was a big success. We're going to try and build upon that this year! Mark your calendars for the 2nd annual Arlandria Clean-Up and Gardening Day on April 24th from 9:00am until about 1pm. Full details will follow in the coming weeks.
Stay Tuned for More Open Space News: Preliminary discussions have begun about what to do with the new Open Space at 3550 Commonwealth Ave and how best to utilize the properties acquired for Four Mile Run Park expansion that will benefit the community now. We'll have more information on that as things get moving.
