I often get feedback via emali that my submission was forwarded to the appropriate party but I rarely get any more feedback on it unless I try to find the receipt email with the tracking number and login to see what has happened.

Details:Thank you for your submission. The lights at the Cavalier Park tennis and basketball courts are controlled individually. The on and off control for the tennis court lights is on the post by the gate where you enter the courts. If there is someone waiting to play tennis after you, do not turn the lights off as it will take 25 minutes for the lights to come back on. If someone does not turn off the lights, they will stay on until 10:15 p.m.

Hubcap Street Art Demolished in Arlington / East Falls Church

Hope you caught the display we reported in March.  The I-66 widening project has since wiped it out.   

Back then:

Washington Boulevard (at 27th St., N.)

The reticent artist, who goes by the single name, Flaco, told us, "Art is, by its very nature, fleeting and ephemeral, like life.  They are as one."

Falls Church Utility Pole Beautification Project

Residents of Dorchester Road, with the cooperation of the Public Works Department, have been making that street a miniature Avenue of the Americas.

All 50 state flags are available, as are all four branches of the US armed services.  If you want just a simple US flag, that is also allowable, but the neighbors look down on that as being "insufficient flair."

Risking the neighbors' wrath with just one flag.

This resident doubles up on American flags.  One on the porch; one on the pole.  Just to be safe.
"Welcome to Dorchester Rd., where our utility poles are the most patriotic in the metro area."
Contact the Falls Church Public Works Department here to get your flag(s).
