Thunderstorm Damage?

How has Arlington Village faired with these last two storms that have wreaked havoc on the rest of the area? Any damage to report?

25 MPH Flyer

Ok...a lot of folks have been writing about the flyer that went out. Anybody else have thoughts on it? We were under the impression that only Arlington Village business could be posted at the garbage cans and put in everyone's door. (Reminder to everyone that ONLY mail should be put in the mail slot per Federal law.)

Can any group post at the garbage cans and send out flyers from the office?

As for the NASCAR drivers in the village...some roads already have speed bumps. Didn't the city do a review of the Arlington Village traffic and it didn't meet the criteria for more "traffic calming" measures?

Outside Lights

I heard that the Board is thinking about replacing them. Has anyone else heard this as well? Something needs to be done about them. They look horrible and don't work that well either.

Poll: Do you think people should be watering their grass?

I've seen various watering going on throughout my village walks. We all pay for the water through our condo fees. Opinions on how the water is used?

Twisted Vines - New Spot on the Pike has been a few months since Twisted Vines opened up. Any thoughts about its presence on the Pike? I've gone in a few times. The service was good and the atmosphere relaxed. Definitely a step up from LA Bar and Grill.
