April 2017 Newsletter


Dear Members and Friends, On April 25, 2017 at 1800, the Club will hold a Town Hall meeting regarding the proposed VDOT Sound Barrier project. As many of you know, the Club must advise VDOT whether VDOT should build a Sound Barrier on VDOT’s land that adjoins the Club property along I-395. VDOT has allocated several million dollars to build a Sound Barrier. There is no cost to the Club. The decision on whether to build the Sound Barrier, in whole or in part, along with the barrier’s composition, rests entirely with VDOT. VDOT will take our wishes into account when it makes its decision. The Board of Governors will decide the Club’s position at its June meeting. To consider this matter, we have arranged for VDOT representatives to brief the Membership at a Town Hall meeting. While VDOT can summarize its views at the Town Hall meeting, you can find additional information about the I-395 project in general, and with respect to the proposed Sound Barrier on VDOT’s website: www.virginiadot.org. To be clear, VDOT’s proposal is a one-time offer, and one that has both positive and negative consequences. If the Sound Barrier decision is important to you, you should review the available information, attend the Town Hall meeting, and communicate your views to those who serve on the Board of Governors before the Board’s June 28, 2017 meeting.

John C. Tuck CAPT, USNR, Retired Chairman, Board of Governors
