  • Help Regarding Break-In at Metrorail Site – 8/3/20

    PYC is requesting the assistance of Potomac Greens residents.

    Someone broke into the Metrorail station worksite at the community’s north end this weekend and stole PYC hand tools.  The gate was locked when the workers left Saturday afternoon, but it was open Sunday morning.  Please take a look at any video from Ring doorbells or security cameras you might have to see if you captured anything that you believe could be related to the theft.  I would focus on the time frame from sundown Saturday to sunrise on Sunday.  Please contact Steve Crime ( if you find anything that ...

  • Pool Update – 7/10/2020
    After our June 25 update to the community following the announcement of Virginia’s Phase 3 re-opening guidance, a few residents kindly volunteered to work with the Board to create a proposal for operating the PG pool during Phase 3. The proposal aimed to address social distancing, enhanced cleaning requirements, enforcement of the rules to mitigate the legal liability of our HOA, and other matters. When we felt the plan sufficiently addressed our concerns and the Phase 3 guidelines, we asked our HOA’s attorneys and insurance company for their evaluation of the plan and associated risk to the HOA. Unfortunately, even with all of the precautions ...
  • Upcoming Landscape Work – 7/2/2020

  • PYMIG & Potomac Yard Design Advisory Committee (PYDAC) Updates – 6/24/2020

    There are two items of interest to the community.

    PYMIG Update.  Virginia Polytechnic and State University (Virginia Tech) approached the City with a request to submit a proposal to WMATA, adding “VT” as a secondary name of the future Potomac Yard Metrorail station name:  Potomac Yard would become Potomac Yard-VT.  If the name change process is conducted now, the City and WMATA anticipate there will be no impact on the station construction schedule or costs, since wayfinding signage and materials costs are built into the station construction budget. Changing the station name at a later date could cost hundreds ...
