New Blog Fosters Two-way Communication
With Park Users
Stories and Perspectives, a new blog created by the Fairfax
County Park Authority (FCPA), will feature interesting content and
diverse perspectives on park-related topics. Beginning in March,
visitors to the blog will find informative posts from staff, stakeholders,
volunteers and Park Authority Board members that address provocative
issues or simply highlight success stories which may have previously
gone overlooked. Posts will provide context to better understand
current park initiatives, and present expert opinions. Readers are
encouraged to submit comments to further the conversation. With
420 parks in the FCPA’s system, there is a wide variety of
ideas, opinions, and stories to share and discuss. \

The Vistors are Coming! The Vistors are
Tourist season is about to explode in the Washington area and maybe
you have some friends or relatives who will be visiting. Show them
how in the know you are by using these tips to get into the most
popular monuments and attractions.
The warmer weather just around the corner means sightseeing houseguests
are about to descend. So what will it be? Parading around the president’s
place? Checking out dinosaur bones? Gawking at the cherry blossoms?
We can help you come up with a game plan, whether your guests are
the kind who like to have the schedule planned out for months and
written in stone or those who just like to hop on the Metro and
wing it. (For that matter, it isn’t too soon to start planning
for next year’s guests either.) More
Emergency Planning Guide
With the severe weather in our part of the country over the past
year, we thought it would be helpful for you and your family to
have information on planning for an emergency.
Has your family discussed how you will handle a large-scale emergency?
What if you are at work, your spouse is stuck in traffic, your children
are in school and you can't communicate with each other? Will everyone
know what to do?
There is no way to completely plan for every emergency, but there
are steps you can take to make sure you are prepared for different
emergency scenarios. More

Transforming Tysons Corner
By 2050, Tysons will be transformed into a walkable, green urban
center based on a plan approved by the Board of Supervisors that
updates the land use plan and zoning ordinance for Tysons. The Board
also adopted 20 follow on motions to guide progress. The plan envisions
Tysons as home to up to 100,000 residents and 200,000 jobs by 2050.
It will become a 24-hour urban center where people live, work and
play — instead of a sprawling suburban office park.
Because the plan was designed to take advantage of the four new
Metro stations coming to Tysons in 2013, 75 percent of future growth
will be within a half mile of these stations. Many offices and homes
will be a three to six minute walk from the stations, allowing people
to get around on foot, bicycle, bus or Metro. For more information,

MAJOR TRAFFIC PATTERN CHANGE SCHEDULED
I-495 NORTH LEFT EXIT TO I-66 WEST CLOSED
The left exit from I-495 north to I-66 west is permanently close
to traffic. Drivers are required to use the existing right exit
ramp, Exit 49A, I-66 west. The right exit ramp will have two lanes
to accommodate the additional traffic.
Motorists will need to be in the right lane on I-495 north as they
approach the I-66 interchange to access Exit 49A, I-66 west. The
merge point onto Exit 49A, I-66 west has been relocated to just
before the I-66 overpasses.
The closure of the left exit ramp was necessary to shift traffic
to the new Beltway outer lanes and allow progress on a new HOT Lanes
access ramp that will be built in place of the existing left exit
for I-66 west.
Please use caution in this area as a new traffic pattern will be
in place. This work is part of the Capital Beltway High Occupancy
Toll (HOT) Lanes Project.

Introducing Traffic Jam Mobile
Leewood is a great place to live, but let's face it, the construction
and traffic are not. How many times have we left the house or office
only to only get stuck in bumper to bumper traffic. There are plenty
of websites dedicated to helping you keep informed about the traffic
in our area and we have created a mobile - friendly webpage with
helpful links you can use to take some of the stress out of traveling
on the area roadways. We hope you bookmark it to your device and
it helps you avoid getting stuck. More>

Recycling & Cleaning up Broken Compact Fluorescent
Many people are unaware that a broken compact fluorescent light
bulb (CFL) can be hazardous. While CFLs are energy efficient and
generally safe to use, be aware that, if broken, you must take special
care in disposing of them. Mercury is a silvery liquid metal identified
by the atomic symbol Hg. Mercury. CFL bulbs get their energy efficiency
from the mercury they contain. However, you must take extreme care
when cleaning up a broken bulb because mercury can be fatal if taken
in large enough amounts. We have created a page with helpful information
on recyling these bulbs and tips you can use in case you break one
in your home. More >
