    2. Construction Traffic Safety & Street Lights – 9/23/20
      The Board would like to re-up the following two requests:
      First, if you have any photos or videos of construction vehicles disobeying stop signs or speed limits while driving through Potomac Greens, please send them to the Communications Committee at
      Second, if you submitted a 311 ticket to the City regarding one of the new, bright streetlights outside your home and you haven’t yet heard from the City or a PG HOA Board member, please send an email to the Communications Committee at before Monday, ...
    3. Metrorail Station Construction Update – 9/17/20

      Update: 9/16/2020

      The latest construction photos of the Metrorail Station are attached.  As you can see, work seems to be moving along.  These photos show the installation of green rebar for the floor of the headhouse platform, two photos showing progress on installing the black rebar for the headhouse basement, and the northwest side of the headhouse.

    4. Construction Traffic Safety Concerns – 9/9/20
      The Board continues to be in conversation with the City and WMATA about how to keep our streets safe while the new Metro station is being built and the volume of construction vehicles traveling through PG is high. The Alexandria PD patrols our area intermittently, and the City has invested in radar equipment to measure speed, but the equipment is currently on back order (it will be installed in PG as soon as it’s delivered).
      In the meantime we’re seeking video or photos that show construction vehicles driving unsafely, not obeying the 25mph speed limit, or not stopping at stop signs. ...
    5. PYMIG Sept 2nd Update – 9/4/2020

    6. Metro Shuttle Update – 9/1/20
      The responses to the Metro shuttle survey last week showed that our community’s demand for shuttle service hasn’t yet returned to a level that justifies resuming its service. The majority of respondents reported that if the shuttle were running now they would use it zero days per week. However, we understand that residents’ commutes might change in the coming weeks and months, so we plan to conduct this survey again in a month or so, and as needed thereafter, to make sure we know if and when the demand for the shuttle ramps back up.
      Meantime, thanks to all who took ...
    7. Virtual Board Meeting Sep. 17 – 8/26/20

The Board may enter into executive session from 6:30-7:00 pm to discuss legal or contract matters.

If you plan to ask a question during the homeowners forum, please also send that question to Christie.
      As ...
    8. Pool Closing & Shuttle Survey – 8/23/20

      As we near the end of the summer, the Board has two updates for the community, one about the pool and one about the Metro shuttle.

      Regarding the pool, Governor Northam has not changed COVID-related restrictions and guidance as they relate to Alexandria, so the PG pool will close for the year in the coming weeks.

      Regarding the Metro shuttle, given that WMATA has begun to ramp back up toward its normal capacity, we’d like to get a sense of the current demand for resumption of the shuttle service. Please fill out this 2-question survey and let us know ...
