    After many months of planning, the all-volunteer leadership team of McLean, Virginia’s “Aging in Place” initiative is pleased to announce our new name, accomplishments to date, and development plans.

    New Name
    Those attending the October 2011 Forum held at Capital One Headquarters and subsequent Phase I/Phase II meetings will recall that the initiative was originally known as “McLean: Creating a Supportive Community for All” or “McLean--A Community for All.” The new name “McLean Community: A Village for All Ages (MCVA)” retains the inclusive, multi-generational, supportive, neighbor-helping-neighbor aspect of our organization, while linking it to the nationwide, indeed international, “Village” movement aimed at helping older adults and adults with disabilities “stay in place” in their own homes and communities.

    MCVA aims to to introduce programs that address unmet needs in the local community, such as McLean Senior Source that help make our community livable, friendly, and connected. Rather than create programs and offerings like the ones that already exist, MCVA promotes the activities of local organizations. MSS is staffed by trained volunteers and is located at the McLean Community Center. You can reach MSS by phone at 703-300-1751, e-mail, McLeanSeniorSource AT gmail.com, and in person by visiting the MSS desk in the lobby of the McLean Community Center, 1234 Ingleside Avenue, McLean, VA 22101. Hours of operation are Tuesdays through Thursdays, 10 am to 2 pm.

    New Website  For more information about MCVA, our history, mission, and programs, check out the new MCVA website at http://www.mcva.weebly.com Feedback and suggestions are welcome.

    Leadership Team and Planning Groups During this third phase of planning and implementation, MCVA’s current leadership team consists of six volunteers: Renuka Chander, Chair; Courtney Nuzzo, Vice Chair; Judy Seiff, recent Past Chair; Betty Yurkewitch, Leader McLean Senior Source; McLean Village Exchange Leader (TBD); and MCVA Public Relations and Outreach Leader (TBD).

    What’s Next?  The leadership team invites greater community and volunteer involvement in MCVA. We welcome suggestions for programs that address unmet needs and leverage the unique value of MCVA to the McLean community. MCVA invites more volunteers to join our Committees. Email the leadership team at McLeanCommunityVillage AT gmail.com.

    DCist featured our neighborhood as the hottest neighborhood to buy property in the DC Metro area for 2013: http://dcist.com/2013/01/pimmit_hills_petworth_listed_as_hot.php.

    from the article:
    "Pimmit Hills is right between the commercial haven and employment hub of Tyson's Corner and Charming main street-esque Falls Church City. With an abundance of flat large lots, enhancement of the Tyson's Corner area and additional transportation options Pimmit Hills looks to be a popular place for years to come," said Redfin agent Rob Wittman.

    The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, together with the Fairfax Area Commission on Aging, is working to continue progress toward creating a more livable community for its older residents.

    This summer, they are hosting community forums throughout the county to hear what residents have to say. Focus areas include housing & transportation; easy access to services; and healthy lifestyles & community engagement.

    This is your chance to share your ideas on what we need to do together to ensure the county continues to be a livable, lifelong community for its growing older population.
