January Civic League Meeting

Welcome to 2024!! Our next civic league meeting is Tuesday, January 16th, 7:00 pm, in the Shelton Park Elementary School cafeteria (enter behind the school).  Please see the attached map for parking.

We’ll have guest speakers from the city traffic engineering office to explain the schedule of the upcoming gate closures at Joint Base Little Creek.  As most residents know, Lake Shores has a lot of cut-through traffic to and from the base.  It’s mostly on Jack Frost, but when traffic gets backed up on Independence going to the main gate (gate 5), cars bail out to Shelton and School Roads to Jack Frost.  Traffic also traverses down Tern to cross Shore Drive illegally from Lake Shores Road.

We’ll also ask for your ideas for programs and speakers.  In the past we’ve had the Commonwealth’s Attorney discuss internet scams, a presentation on elder law issues (do you have a will AND revocable trust?), flood insurance, fire safety from the VBFD, and many others.

If you paid your dues earlier this year, you’re covered for the remaining three meetings before our summer break.  It’s only $10 a year per household and you need to be a member to vote on any issues.

Please park in the rear of the school and access the cafeteria through the double glass doors.
