October 2020 CCCA Newsletter

Meetings, Meetings, Meetings:  We’re in a period of many virtual meetings that will affect our community.  Plus we have 6 Livability 22202 working groups started which are actively working.  This is why a) we aren’t holding CCCA meetings; and b) this newsletter is late.  We try to post regularly on our CCCA Facebook page and as often as possible on our CCCA and Livability22202 websites.  This Newsletter covers many of them—read this carefully.  Stay tuned for updates. We really need volunteers for a number of issues—please consider getting involved.

1.  Community Outreach and Feedback:  With so much going on that can affect the lives of all residents in Crystal City, not to mention all of 22202, keeping you all informed and getting your input is increasingly critical.  Its not enough to have a few people representing some 10,000 or more in the County’s SPRC development process.  Or a larger group of volunteers participating in the (now) 6 working groups of Livability 2220.  We really need to hear from residents who don’t have time to get actively involved.  With so many Livability and community engagement meetings, we haven’t even tried to organize a CCCA virtual meeting.  We may be going out with some surveys in the near future, but they need to be based on information we have provided, or will provide. We absolutely want your input to appropriately represent you.
