During September, Occoquan would normally be preparing for the Fall Arts & Crafts Show, but 2020 is a different kind of year. However, other activities are planned. On Sept. 4, Time Warp Rock will be playing in River Mill Park at 7:00 p.m. On the 25th there will a Trivia Night there starting at 6:30 p.m. For those interested in outdoor activity, on Sept. 26, which is National Public Lands Day, the nonprofit Prince William
Trails and Streams Coalition (PWTSC) will be sponsoring a trail work day on the Tanyard Hill Park property. This is a great way to help us get the hiking trail there operational. Please email the mayor, Earnie Porta, if you are interested in volunteering.
On Sept. 23, there will be holding a public meeting at Town Hall to review and discuss the latest renderings for the proposed Mill at Occoquan project. This is an important project in Town. Since seating is limited, Zoom technology will be available so people can watch and listen to the presentation remotely, and ask questions and provide feedback in a structured format. This is not the required formal public hearing and no votes will be taken at the meeting.
Town staff often gets recurring inquiries about particular issues in Town related to upkeep and maintenance or construction. To address those, a status update section on theTown web site will be implemented to provide information on the current status and steps planned to address outstanding issues. The first two status updates cover drainage from 430 Mill Street and construction and other issues on a portion of Center Lane.
Last, the Town thanks our Town Manager, Kathleen Leidich, for her service to the Town and wish her well as she leaves to pursue other opportunities. Prior Town Manager Kirstyn Jovanovich has returned to the area from Colorado with her family and has accepted the position of Town Manager beginning on Sept. 15.
Please contact the mayor Earnie Porta with any questions, comments, or concerns.
