About Us


Welcome to the community website for the Greater Westover area, which is made up of the following four Civic Associations:  Tara-Leeway Heights (TLH), Leeway Overlee (LO), Highland Park-Overlee Knolls (HPOK), and Westover Village (WV).  

This site is run and maintained by volunteers.  The hope and plan for this site is to list events, helpful information, news, stories, blog posts, and publish a digital (and paper) newsletter. It will be similar to Nextdoor, but with less posts about items for sale and lost pets.

Please feel free to be in touch with ideas or requests, or if you would like to help with this project (we are always looking for volunteers to add and submit any content related to the Greater Westover area. To sign up to help, please contact us).

To sign up to receive the digital newsletter, please complete this form.

Stormwater Mitigation


The four civic associations comprise the Torreyson Run watershed, and our residents and businesses suffered a great deal from the July 8th storm that overwhelmed the county’s storm water management systems. This letter was an attempt to work with the county board to ensure storm water management improvements in our watershed.

More

This document is a "story map" prepared by the County to explain the history of Arlington's effort to manage stormwater, and to describe how a combination of storm characteristics determines whether a stormwater system is sufficient to prevent community flooding.

More

Arlington is working toward flooding resilience through defining balance between private and public responsibility; scaling levels of flood protection and mitigation; and needs based investment. Read more for Information on work groups, workshops, flood proofing, how to be prepared, and the county stormwater management program.

Arlington Community Corps


Arlington Community Corps
The Arlington Community Corps is a resident initiative to support and leverage existing grassroots efforts to bring the community together and support each other neighbor-to-neighbor, which is crucial to our getting through this pandemic.

We need to ensure that neighbors are helping neighbors. The more of us who can lead, organize, and volunteer, the more resilient we can be as a community and the faster we can recover after the crisis has passed. To join or find out more, please visit ArlingtonCommunityCorps.org.
