2013 Annual Membership Meeting

We will be holding our annual board meeting on Wednesday November 20th, at the TCC Joint Use Library. During this meeting we will elect new board members for 2014. We need more board members and fresh ideas. The board currently consists of seven members and we should have ten. In addition to expanding the number of board members, we also need volunteers to participate in various committees. This will be a crucial year as the pool property is sold and a plan to utilize some of those proceeds for neighborhood improvement is created/implemented.

Sale of Pool Property Approved

Dear Neighbor:
 
The SWCA received final approval from the City Council for the sale of the pool property on Rothwell Court. The SWCA membership has also voted for the sale of the pool property with an overwhelming 79 votes for and 7 against. We will now begin to subdivide the lots and put them up for sale. The lots can only be used to develop single family dwellings and the pool must be removed. We will keep you updated as the sale process unfolds.

We have mailed a final proxy for the sale of the pool area on Rothwell Court to all SWCA members. Please remember to vote and drop it off in the locked mailbox by the office. The office will be closed from Jan 1 to Jan 12th.

Property Sale Update

 
We had our meeting with the Virginia Beach Planning Commission this week and they have approved our sale of property. We will need to receive final approval from the City Council in January but expect them to accept the recommendation of the Planning Commission. The pool area at Rothwell was the property approved for sale as the Revere Park area was more suitable of the Planning Commission's definition of "open space." It is unfortunate that we have to proceed with the sale of any property but we feel that this is in the best interest of the community. We will be sending a proxy vote by mail to all SWCA members for approval of the Rothwell property sale. If you have any questions about the process please let us know. We will continue to provide updates as they become available.
 
Following final approval from City Council, SWCA will need to subdivide the property. We will probably have three 7500 square foot lots. We will be putting the property up for bidding and build houses to fit in with the existing homes.
