Invitation To Meeting With Sanitation Authority


The folks from the Carlyle Towers Community Affairs committee would like to invite ALL fellow residents to a meeting TONIGHT at Carlyle Towers regarding the Alexandria Sanitation Authority’s proposed expansion in our neighborhood. This proposed expansion is now making its way through the City process and definitely affects ALL residents, especially those over at the Alexan Carlyle.

For those of you that don’t know about their proposed expansion, a little history.

After years of negotiation and months of court delays, the Alexandria Sanitation Authority has taken ownership of a ten-acre parcel of land (blocks 29 & 30 in Carlyle) adjacent to the facility through imminent domain.

ASA acquired the Hooff’s Run property by filing a certificate of take with the Alexandria Circuit Court and paid the appraised value of $20.4 million to the court on December 29, 2008. The Circuit Court determined the final amount of compensation to be paid by ASA at a later trial.

Under the action, ASA took immediate title and possession of the land that it will use to expand its current facility to meet new Virginia environmental regulations regarding nutrient removal designed to help restore the health of the Chesapeake Bay. The design of the new facility will begin immediately. The acquisition came after years of failed negotiations with the previous owner, Hooff Fagelson Tract LLC.

So, please come with questions to find out about what is happening in our community. It should be an elightening evening. I hope to see you there!

TIME: 7:00pm
WHERE: Carlyle Towers – South Building

Did the community identify specific issues of public concern about the new sewer expansion last night at the meeting? Does your community association plan to contact the City about your concerns?

I’m also interested in knowing how long Carlyle Towers has had a Community Affairs committee. I think it is a great idea. I’m not sure if our new HOA has registered with the city as an organization, but I realize that is important if we would like to be contacted when there are changes in store for the Carlyle district.
