What's Happening in Our Neighborhood

As with any vibrant community, we have many issues that come up that affect our daily lives. We live in a county where we can have an impact with our thoughtful input. In the future, our website will be adding new issues as they arise in the community. We welcome your input about new issues that affect our community.



The schools serving our community are Discovery Elementary, Williamsburg Middle School and Yorktown High School. Of course, we have many concerns about our schools with the most pressing one relating to remote learning during the COVID crisis.

Lee Highway

Arlington County is currently working on a Lee Highway Revisioning Plan that will have significant impact on the section of Lee Highway that is part of our community. We will be monitoring their plans and providing input as the plans are developed

Traffic Safety

Over the past several years the residents of the Old Dominion Citizens Association (ODCA) have met repeatedly with Arlington County traffic officials to discuss what measures can be taken to increase safety on both major thoroughfares. 

Salt Storage Property

The Salt Dome and adjacent properties are going to be redeveloped in the coming years. We have been strong proponents for encouraging the creation of a park and neighborhood meeting facility. We continue to monitor the County’s work on this property and will report news as we hear it

Fire Station #8

Fire Station #8 is going to be rebuilt in its current location. We worked hard to ensure that the County understood our needs and desires during the decision process and we are monitoring the progress of the rebuilding process.


The Old Dominion Citizens Association (ODCA) represents the diverse thoughts and ideas of our community members  – our friends and neighbors.  We work with the Arlington County Board and other working groups that address issues of concern to us.  Please feel free to get in touch if you have ideas, thoughts or issues that you’d like to share with us.
