Reasons to Join

There are a number of really good reasons to join, but principally you are “buying in” to neighborhood ownership and gaining a voice through our collective organization.

Here are our Top 10 Reasons to join in with our Civic League:

  • Community involvement through our meetings and newsletter.
  • Pipeline\communication to the City Council.
  • Pipeline\communication to the Police Department.
  • Pipeline\communication to City Services.
  • To have a voice in the continuity of the neighborhood through input and dialogue.
  • Knowledge of what is going on (development, roads, traffic, city capital improvements etc.) in and around Larkspur through our website and meetings.
  • Getting to know your neighbors and make some friends.
  • Neighborhood security through the sharing of information.
  • The Annual Larkspur Civic League Picnic.
  • Access to local and state representatives for our district. Representatives often speak at the General Membership meetings.

Successes in the Past:

  1. Preventing the use of Edwin Drive as a feeder to an onramp to I-264.
  2. Preventing the extension of Hoylake Rd to Baxter road.
  3. Halting the construction of the Department of Human Services on Independence Blvd.
  4. Halting the sale and redevelopment of Kempsville Greens Municipal Golf Course.
  5. When the streets of Larkspur repeatedly flooded after almost any rain, it was the Civic League (not individual phone calls and letters) that got the City to act to clear and repair neglected drains and improve drainage provided along the Dominion Power Right of Way.
