Welcome to the Neighborhood

Since the 1960s the Larkspur neighborhood in Virginia Beach, VA has been a close knit community of almost 800 homes with an active civic league and neighborhood pool.

It is within walking distance of Kempsville Greens Golf Course, Mount Trashmore  Park, and the Kempsville Recreation Center. It also brags easy access to I-264 and Virginia Beach’s vibrant central downtown district.

The neighborhood features large treed lots, increasing property values, and a desirable school district.

****  We have the guest speaker speaker agenda set for the upcoming General Membership Meeting scheduled for Wed, 15 Jan 2020. Please go to the “Events” Tab for the details. As always, if you have a topic you would like to see presented at one of our meetings, please nominate it through our “Contact Us” tab on this site. Hope to see you there – again 15 Jan 2020 7:00 pm.

**** SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING US CENSUS 2020

The U.S. will conduct the next census in 2020. The Larkspur Civic League was asked to help by publicizing the census and also to make information available concerning U.S. Census Bureau employment opportunities. In addition to the below information, the local census Recruiting Assistant will attend our next General Membership Meeting (15 Jan 2020) to provide additional details and discuss employment opportunities.
A short summary of 2020 Censuses & opportunities:
*The most immediate benefit will be local jobs at $18 an hour. These jobs will be ideal for people looking for supplementary income either full or part-time flexible hours available.
*The results of the 2020 Census will help determine each state’s government representation.
*The more complete our population count, the more federal funds we will receive. These funds are used for schools, hospitals, roads and more. We have a great need to hire census takers to get as complete of a population count as possible.
As a census taker, you’ll know you are earning competitive wages and serving your community in a way that will help for decades to come. Although selection of applicants for census taker positions starts in January, it is urgent that applicants apply as soon as possible. This is a federal job and background checks take some time to complete. Training starts in Mar 2020.
