Wanted: July 4th Parade Coordinator

Lago Mar celebrates July 4th the good ol' fashioned way:  with a Parade of home-grown floats and a picnic complete with family entertainment.

Our veteran coordinator, Mike Mundy, will be stepping aside after many years of awesome leadership.  Mike has hints and ties he is ready to pass on to the next parade coordinator who will organize volunteers, start the parade, and manage judges for the floats. Mike will still be with us to obtain the permits required.

If you and/or a friend can step up to the plate to keep the special tradition going, please contact lagomarVP@gmail.com or any board member for more information.

Short Term Rentals Update

The following was taken from vbgov.com.

The Virginia Beach City Council has been studying possible regulations for short-term home rentals, like those romoted on Airbnb and other sites, out of concern for how rentals affect quiet residential neighborhoods – especially with increased traffic, parking and noise. The council also wants to ensure the safety of visitors who rent homes, apartments or rooms.  

To assist with this work, the Council appointed an ad hoc committee to make recommendations.  See the Committee Recommendations

The Council also adopted an ordinance requiring owners who rent their homes to register with the Commissioner of the Revenue. Such rentals are required to pay city and state taxes, the same as hotels, motels and bed & breakfasts.

Frosty in the Park - Cancelled

We are very sad to announce that we will be cancelling this year's “Frosty in the park” Toys for Tots Drive.  The weather is supposed to be really bad (heavy rain all day\night).  Unfortunately, there is no rain date. 

Please take your toys to your schools (if they are having a donation station) and mention our neighborhood.  Any toys that have been dropped off already will be delivered to the main station in Kempsville.

Thank you to all of you who have volunteered already.  This is one of our favorite events; we will try again next year.

We are truly blessed to live in a place where we love our friends we call neighbors.  

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Your Lago Mar Civic League
