Welcome to the first week of December! Here's a little of what's coming down the pike this week.


Get a little holiday shopping done on Monday. Here's your playbook for Cyber Monday.

The City of Falls Church Planning Commission meets Monday at 7:45 p.m. The agenda includes a public hearing and approval of the 301 West Broad Street Site Plan and Subdivision aka the new Harris Teeter store. For more information, see more of the agenda here.

Monday - Friday

Leaf collection continues this week, Monday through Friday, south of Broad Street. Crews will be concentrating on this area through Friday, Dec. 13. Rake loose leaves to the curb but avoid placing them in the street.  Pile leaves away from storm drains and water meter covers. Keep all other collection material at least five feet away from leaf piles.

For more information, call Public Works at 703-248-5083 (TTY 711).
