Park Authority Public Meeting on Hogge Master Plan Set

From the Fairfax County Park Authority:

The Fairfax County Park Authority is holding a Public Information Meeting to gather public comment on the draft master plan for the Boyd A. and Charlotte M. Hogge Park located at 3139 Glen Carlyn Road in Falls Church, VA. The meeting will be held on Monday, November 15, 2010 at 7 p.m. in the cafeteria at Glen Forest Elementary School, located at 5829 Glen Forest Drive in Falls Church, VA.

Hogge Park includes approximately six acres of land in the Baileys Crossroads area of the Mason Supervisory District.  The site is characterized by a mixture of open lawn areas and a wooded floodplain.  After acquiring the property, the Park Authority initiated the master plan process to guide future development of the site.  This process seeks to balance local recreation needs and community preferences together with site-related issues such as public access, site assets and physical constraints. 

Falls Church Becomes 'The Little City'

From the City of Falls Church:

“The Little City” slogan and logo are now registered trademarks of the City of Falls Church Economic Development Authority.  The U.S. Patent and Trade Office approved applications filed earlier this year by Erik M. Pelton and Associates on behalf of the EDA.  The law firm donated its services to the project. 

“We are excited to continue our campaign to promote The Little City of Falls Church, VA, with the knowledge that our message is unique in the marketplace and now protected by trademark status,” commented David Tarter, chairman of the Falls Church EDA.   He also expressed the EDA board’s appreciation for Mr. Pelton’s pro bono services in support of the branding effort.
