The Westover Village Civic Association is looking for Volunteers!

We have not held Board Member elections since 2018. If there is sufficient interest, we would like to hold elections during the meeting on October 27th.

The WVCA Board has traditionally been a minimal time commitment, with the board coordinating events with surrounding civic associations. We hope to see those begin again in 2022.

If you’re interested in getting to know your neighbors, and would like to help plan events with our surrounding community, please reach out to the current Board Members with your questions about specific positions! Most of the board is interested in passing the baton on to other members of the community. If you are interested in running for a position, please let us know before the meeting so we can prepare for a virtual vote. Board positions are stated as a 2-year commitment, but if there isn’t sufficient interest to running elections, we may want to discuss reducing the scope of the WVCA until there is renewed interest.

Please remember only active members of the WVCA can participate in voting. Members must reside or own property located within Westover Village’s neighborhood boundaries.

If you have not paid your $15 dues for 2021, you can make a payment through Paypal on our website.  Dues paid in advance of the 10/27 meeting will carry through the 2022 year.

Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Committee Delegate (NCAC) – Are you interested in how your Arlington tax dollars are spent? Do you want to have more sidewalks, better parks, improved streets, and pedestrian-friendly crosswalks? Do you want to hear about new projects and initiatives that are happening in other areas of Arlington? 

Over the past 25 years, the County has spent $62.7 million on Neighborhood Conservation projects to beautify and strengthen our neighborhoods.  This neighborhood improvement program needs a representative from WVCA. Currently, the program meets virtually 8-10 times a year for about an hour every month.
