Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Council on Environmental Quality NEPA Regulations (Code of Federal Regulations, Title 40, Parts 1500-1508), the Department of Defense, Washington Headquarters Services (WHS) has issued a Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) for the construction of the Pentagon Remote Delivery Facility (RDF) Roof Structural Strengthening Project.

To meet the needs of the military branches that operate flights at the Pentagon, the RDF Roof must support certain helicopter vehicle weights under both landing and operation conditions. The Project would enhance the structural integrity of the RDF Roof and convert the Pentagon Heliport (located on the RDF Roof) into a permanent facility that sustains the safe operations of aircraft.

Cody Chance and Dick Nathan of Long & Foster are hosting an online workshop on the topic of “down-sizing” Wednesday, April 21 from 5-6:30 p.m. Every great endeavor begins with a great plan. This workshop will give you the tools to design your plan.

We have created a workbook with an extensive planning guide to enable you to design a personalized written plan for your move, and more than twenty pages of resources specific to Northern Virginia to help you along the way! These resources will help you to find the best people to assist you in your move, and help you get the belongings that won’t move with you into the hands of people who will value them. The workshop format is a “guided group discussion” of the workbook, with a chance for the participants to ask their own questions, and special guest presenter Alexandra Fry of Orchestrated Moves will be joining us to share her many years of expertise in organization and moving.

Many Arlington residents (more than 1,400 signed an online petition) have been working for more than a year to save the Febrey-Lothrop house and 9-acre estate as a park in Arlington. The local historic review board ruled it historic four months ago; the county parks and recreation commission wants the land for a park. The residents of Arlington need this open, green space and parkland more than the developer to build more $2 million mansions for rich people.

Sadly, the county board let the owner demolish the historic Febrey house in late March, but we still feel that the surrounding 9 acres hold historic value and value as a public park. The county board has showed already it intends to reject historic designation and protection of this land at its public hearing on April 17. We need legal funds to insure that the county government faithfully administers the state historic preservation law, and does not allow the last major open tract of land that still has much history in Arlington to be bulldozed.

Gallery Underground’s Focus Gallery presents, during the month of April, Urban Soul, a solo show of works by Gustavo Forselledo — expressionist images of Washington, D.C. and other cities worldwide, with a special emphasis on Uruguay, where the artist was born. Forselledo, who has been influenced by Uruguayan masters Carols Paez Vilaró and Joaquín Torres García, presents the acrylic and ink images on canvas and hardboard as acquiring their own movements so the observer can perceive the rhythm and soul of the cities depicted.

The exhibit encompasses two series of urban landscape paintings: expressionist images of Washington, D.C. and other cities worldwide, and Uruguayan urban icons and figures dancing the tango. Forselledo was born in Montevideo, Uruguay and is currently living in Arlington.
