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

Christmas on the Canals

Several of our neighbors would like your help starting a new tradition in Lago Mar. 

  • For residents living along the canals in Lago Mar, consider adding some decoration that can be seen from the canal -- nothing too elaborate to add stress to your life, just a little twinkle & shine
  • Boaters:  decorate your craft and cruise the canals to see decorations on the shore while showing off your floating holiday spirit.

Perhaps, if there is enough interest, someday we'll pick a specific date or two for a holiday celebration along the waterways of Lago Mar.

Please feel free to leave a comment if your yard, or boat, is one to be seen in 2017.

Santa is coming to Lago Mar!

Variance at 2221 Vadito Way

The owner of 2221 Vadito Way is currently renting out his pool house on a short term basis.  The owner is requesting a variance to turn his pool house into a separate dwelling unit.  There is a hearing on October 4, 2017 at 2 PM EDT to discuss this with the city. 

The Lago Mar Civic League opposes this variance because it could devalue our homes and threaten the things we love about Lago Mar.  It's one thing to convert your pool house to an in-law suite for a family member and another to rent out your pool house to different people every weekend.  It's not fair to your neighbors to turn your pool house into a hotel; to invite strangers into our neighborhood.  That's not why we chose to live here.

Click the link below to sign a petition to let all parties know that we, the neighbors, insist that the Virginia Beach City Ordinances be upheld and our neighborhood is protected.
