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.

The Civic League Board of Directors and committees is listed under the “About Us” tab.  We offer a warm welcome to the new members, and those returning members as well!!

**** Check out the “Events” Tab for important information on the upcoming General Membership Meeting scheduled for 22 Apr 2020.  The format of this meeting and the location are very different from the past.  Also there is a note regarding the COVID-19 situation and the possibility the meeting will be cancelled for now.

**** For the Apr 2020 Newsletter, we are mailing a postcard to every street address in our Larkspur Neighborhood.  The postcard gives a brief summary of upcoming events and invites everyone to download a copy of the full newsletter from this site.  If you did not receive a postcard, please let us know via the “Contact Us” feature on this website.   You may view or download your copy of the newsletter from the “About Us” tab, or from this link  –  Apr 2020 Newsletter.



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.
