The NC program is the only County program exclusively serving residential communities. County staff works with community members and civic associations to develop NC Plans, which establish a neighborhood’s vision and identify improvement projects. These projects include:
Tyrol Hill Park/Columbia Heights West
Big Walnut Park/Tara-Leeway Heights
N. Vernon Street/Ballston-Virginia Square – missing sidewalks
N. Patrick Henry Drive/Dominion Hills – wide street, fast traffic
S. Oakland Street/Douglas Park – missing sidewalks, curbs, gutters
N. Vernon Street – transformed
N. Patrick Henry Drive – transformed
S. Oakland Street – transformed
