We are pleased to post the final report of the BCA Bluemont Village Center Task Force, presented to the BCA at its membership meeting on December 17. You may find this report under the More Information tab.
We appreciate the hard work of all committee members and the input of the many individuals who assisted with this report. BCA will continue to closely monitor developments regarding the local Safeway located on Wilson Boulevard.
At this writing, we have no new reports from Safeway, and we do contact them regularly. This Task Force will continue its work through the summer and into the fall.
Happy Spring to all. The next meeting of the Bluemont Village Center Task Force will be on Tuesday, April 22, at 7 PM, at the home of K. Mattos, 5310 N. Bluemont. BCA members are welcome. Due to limited space, please call in advance if you wish to attend: 703-524-2793. Thanks.
Our Task Force wanted you to be aware of rumblings in the business press about investor interest in purchasing Safeway operations. Here is a recent story from Bloomberg news about this.
It is premature to speculate what impact this might have on our local Safeway. Our Task Force reported at last week’s BCA meeting that we have been in communication with Safeway representatives, and that we expect to learn of yet-to-be defined developments in a few weeks.
We will continue to update BCA membership both on this blog and at BCA monthly meetings, and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
