Many of you have expressed concern about the increased traffic and speed of vehicles on Beverly Drive. As a result, the Strathmeade Square Community Association Board requested that Fairfax County perform a traffic claiming study. The result of that study indicates that vehicles were in fact traveling at excessive speed and posed a threat to safety, especially during peak hours when there was increased traffic and students were waiting for or being discharged from busses.
The County has proposed a traffic calming plan which the Strathmeade Board has adopted but before any such plan can be instituted there are a number of steps that must be performed. Next in the process is to hold a community meeting where residents can hear what is proposed and ask questions to be better informed before a vote by the community residents is taken on the proposal.
The Community meeting is scheduled for:
Thursday, March 14, 2019
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Thomas Jefferson Library
7415 Arlington Boulevard
Falls Church, VA, 22042-7409
Please note that this meeting is for informational purposes only. Before a final decision is made to proceed with the traffic calming proposal, a community vote must be held after 30 days’ notice. Sometime after the community meeting, all owners in Strathmeade Square that live on courts that access to Beverly Drive or Thompson Road, and those who live in a portion of Prosperity Heights (area bounded by Monarch Lane and Happy Heart Lane), will be provided with such notice, given detailed information about the proposal, and be asked to vote on its approval.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting on this important step in our communities’ safety.
President, Strathmeade Square Community Association.
