The Springfield Civic Association (SCA) welcomes you as we enter a new era, a Springfield Renaissance, if you will. The General Services Administration (GSA) has announced that the new headquarters for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will be built in Springfield (https://www.bizjournals.com/washington/news/2017/08/24/gsa-picks-a-new-headquarters-site-for-the-tsa.html). The TSA will only spur further interest in Springfield and expedite development of Phase II of the Springfield Town Center, et al. New hotels, restaurants, grocery stores, residences and office space should be on the rise bringing new activity and a welcome breeze of renewal. The SCA has helped to make this happen by partnering with the Fairfax County government, local businesses, adjoining civic associations, and homeowner associations. SCA’s tradition of community activism and grass roots engagement is alive, well, and looking to the future. Come be a part of it! There is something for everyone and your contributions will only make us a more vibrant community.
The SCA participates directly in the Lee District Land Use Committee (LDLUC); the Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) of the Franconia Precinct of the Fairfax County Police Department; Friends of Lake Accotink Park (FLAP); Lee District Association of Civic Organization (LDACO); Fairfax County Federation of Citizens Association (FCFCA www.fairfaxfederation.org); and with the Virginia State Assembly and VDOT concerning road issues.
SCA meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each of the following months: September, November, January, March and May. All meetings run from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., with light refreshments served before and after, and are held at Crestwood Elementary School on Hanover Avenue. The SCA Board strives to keep the presentations relevant to our evolving circumstances. Some of our meeting topics are Springfield revitalization and business development, code compliance, emergency management, and briefings from our local elected officials. Your ideas and concepts are welcome and hereby solicited.
The SCA advocates in a non-sectarian and non-partisan way for your property, your security, and a cohesive community. Our initiatives have moved the County to action on numerous fronts. We work with the business community by shopping local; we are an economic force that businesses want to associate with. Further, the SCA continues to lead with our long involvement with Springfield Days (www.springfielddays.com) and the Springfield 5k Road Race (www.runspringfield.org) both of which show off our schools, parks, neighborhoods and the central business district. The SCA actively seeks to partner for the greater good. Join us on Facebook; we encourage you to participate to the extent you are able and help us in building a better Springfield.
