Yorktown Beats W-L — “Led by a shutdown defense and a power running offense, the visiting Yorktown Patriots blanked the Washington-Liberty Generals, 27-0, in the final regular-season football game for the Arlington high-school rivals the afternoon of Nov. 5. The teams finished in a three-way tie for second in the Liberty District with 4-2 records. Yorktown and W-L advance to the eight-team 6D North Region tournament, beginning with first-round action Friday, Nov. 11.” [Sun Gazette]

House May Get Historic Designation — “Arlington in recent years has lost several homes to the wrecking ball after their owners refused to support community efforts at including them in local historic districts. But in the latest instance, the homeowner and preservationists are on the same page. As a result, it could be just a few weeks before Arlington County Board members formally designate a Virginia Square property – known as the Anderson House for a couple who lived in it long ago – as its own historic district.” [Sun Gazette]

Holiday Market This Weekend — “Alanna Rivera Studios presents the Cherrydale Holiday Art Market showcasing artists and makers from Arlington, D.C., and Maryland.

It is the decision of the United States Department of Defense (DoD) Washington Headquarters Services (WHS) to implement the Proposed Action: the 2024 Pentagon Reservation Master Plan Update (Pentagon Master Plan) as the framework to guide future decisions regarding land use and infrastructure at the Pentagon site and Mark Center. The Pentagon Master Plan aims to provide an update to the existing conditions at the Pentagon and Mark Center and presents projects and revisions to land use categorizations that will address the specific needs to reduce the Pentagon’s environmental impacts and advance sustainability, security, and resilience. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review has been completed through preparation of a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate environmental impacts arising from implementation of the projects. WHS has concluded that no significant impacts to the human or natural environment will result from implementation of any projects, and recognized negative effects will be reduced by adherence to standard best management practices, applicable permit and consultation conditions, and standard operating procedures. This decision is further documented in the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) signed on March 20, 2024.

This notice announces the availability of the FONSI to implement the 2024 Pentagon Reservation Master Plan Update.

For further information and to request a copy of the Final EA or FONSI, please contact Brian King, Environmental and Sustainability Program Manager, WHS/Facilities Services Directorate/Standards and Compliance Division/Environmental and Sustainability Branch; (703-614-3658 or [email protected]).
