On Sept 4, 2013 Fairfax County informed us that our grant submission entitled "Pleasant Valley - Keeping it Safe and Beautiful" was selected and recommended for funding! There were 19 projects selected to receive funding and we were one of them receiving $3880! There is a mandatory meeting on Sept 24th at the Fairfax Co Govt Center where we will learn more about this year's program. We are experienced grant recipients as having just completed the work of our Fiscal Year 2012 grant award which enabled us to renovate the pool house bathrooms and improve the grounds. This year's award will be to repair the sidewalk and pool deck caulking, continue to improve the grounds, and upgrade the much needed electrical infrastructure. We will need volunteers as in the past to fulfill our "sweat equity" commitment. Also we will look for "in-kind" contributions from local public or private organizations. All of these investements are required in order for us to secure the funding. This additional revenue source is key to our ability to keep the pool and our grounds a fun and safe place for our membership and increases property values for all Pleasant Valley residents. Congrats to us and much thanks from the county!
