  • Upcoming Landscape Work – 7/2/2020
    Starting the week of July 6th, the crews from Grounds Management will begin the summer clean up of landscaped areas. This includes leaf removal, weeding, light pruning, and fresh mulch. Please have your outside front hoses hooked up and in working order. The crews like to water shrubs that look wilted. Hydrangea especially struggle in the heat.
    Residents who would like to opt out of this service can contact Christine Beruete / Sentry Management (see “Contact Us” for info) for a blue reflector. If you currently have a blue reflector, please be sure it is visible. Corner lots ...
  • PYMIG and Construction Updates – 6/30/2020

    There are two items of interest to the community.

    PYMIG Update.  The June construction update video is now available on the City of Alexandria’s website at http://alexandria.granicus.com/ViewPublisher.php?view_id=29&coa_clip_id=4521&coa_view_id=29.  Slide 7 contains the construction schedule for the next three months.  Slides 8-12 and 17-20 include current photos of station construction on the Potomac Greens side of the project.

    Construction Update for the Pocket Park.  Fred Robertson, the WMATA project manager, contacted us to tell us that PYC had ordered the wrong style of benches for the circle. Instead of the City’s standard black metal benches, PYC ordered wooden benches similar to what we ...

  • Pool / Gym / Metro Shuttle Update from Board – 6/24/2020

  • 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 ...

    Agenda 6-18-20

  • Construction Update & New No Parking – 6/11/20

    There are two items of interest to the community:

    1. Metro Station Construction. The builders have installed 1400+ Controlled Modulus Columns (CMCs) to support the weight of the new metro station instead of using driven piles. The massive piece of CMC installation equipment, brought into the site four months ago, was removed yesterday aboard a large flatbed truck that measured 114 feet long from cab to the rear trailer.  Over the next six months, the builders will be pouring cement for the station’s foundation and platforms and will be placing additional fill to bring the area up to track level.
    2. 3-Way Stop at ...
