February Announcements

It’s really winter!  The blizzard of 2016 may have been disruptive, but it also afforded many of us the chance to connect with our neighbors.  With so many cars buried in the snow, it was natural for many residents to travel by foot, if only to enjoy the beauty of a fresh snowfall. FSNA thanks those who worked so hard in the days after the storm to clear a safe path.  It’s also very heartening to know that so many of you think of your neighbors who need help with the heavy lifting. For folks who are unable to shovel, even just giving them clear access to the sidewalk or street makes a huge difference!

The City Fire Chief, Andrew Baxter, recently shared news of his team’s efforts during the storm:  “Our troops did an amazing job throughout the storm during difficult conditions. We added additional staffing and utilized two four-wheel drive units that provided improved access to some of our neighborhoods that were greatly affected by the snow. We had a “near-miss” fire in an apartment building on JPA across the street from Fry’s Spring Station during the storm. Fortunately, a rapid, robust response was able to keep a contents fire on the balcony from extending into the building.”

Charlottesville is looking for a new Police Chief.  From the City Director of Communications: “The search for the next Charlottesville Police Chief is underway and the City of Charlottesville is seeking feedback from the public.  Anyone with thoughts about what they would like to see in the next Chief of Police may email
