Hi Neighbors,


Please consider writing an email/letter to support Shreve Road improvements

A template you can personalize, as needed, is in forwarded email below.  Thanks, Jeremy!



A few other community related action items…as Memorial Day approaches….

You may also consider Joining the effort:


PHCA has started its own Facebook page here:  Join PHCA Facebook Page/Group


You might also consider joining Nextdoor about 65% of the neighborhood is already there.


The food drive continues at Shrevewood Elementary each weekend, see prior PHCA email of 5/4/20 here:!forum/PoplarHeights


Finally, been looking for a vendor, or industrious person (me, at the rate I am going), to paint house numbers on the curb for a reasonable price; as are at least 8 other homes in the neighborhood.  Ideas/referrals welcome.



Stay Home, Save Lives!

Peace & Regards,

---Keith Callahan

As a reminder, Sunday is the deadline to email support statements for the Shreve Road grant. There is only funding for 36% of the applications, so we need your voice!




Dear Neighbors,

We need your help. The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) is considering a $6.9 million transportation grant to make improvements along Shreve Road from the W&OD to Route 7. This grant would make needed pedestrian improvements, including at the dangerous turn near the Vulcan factory. Public support is an important factor and funding is competitive. 

Can you take a few seconds to send an email for Shreve Road improvements?

Please send an email to the address below expressing your support for the West Falls Church application. It doesn't have to be long or detailed, but below is a sample letter that you can customize with your perspective.  Be sure to include your first and last name and zip code.

As a resident in the Shreve Road community, I write to share my strong support for the West Falls Church Access to Transit and Multimodal Connectivity application.

Transportation improvements along this portion of Shreve Road are greatly needed. Our community uses the pathway daily for access to metro and retail, however the design of the road and lack of protection puts our families in danger. Earlier this year, the Virginia Department of Transportation reduced the speed limit on this portion of Shreve road in response to the number of vehicle accidents. However, without the investments from this grant application, there will not be adequate protection to advance the use of multimodal transportation.

Expanding commercial development will increase the number of vehicles on Shreve Road. Without adequate capacity for pedestrians and bicycles, residents will be forced to add to the number of vehicle trips to reach nearby destinations, including the metro.
