There is an ongoing issue of very sick and deceased birds in our area that the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources is working to diagnose. In the meantime, the Animal Welfare League of Arlington (which also serves City of Falls Church residents) urge you to take down any birdfeeders to help limit the spread of this illness.

We are asking Arlington Co (and DMV) residents to bring their birdfeeders inside for the time being. Due to the unknown illness in local birds, we are looking to take as many precautions as possible to keep illnesses from spreading (and birdfeeders can be a common source of illness). As we get more information, we will let you know when you can put your birdfeeders back outside!

The City is under a Flash Flood Watch now through midnight. Slow moving thunderstorms may produce several inches of rain, resulting in flooding.

"Turn Around, Don't Drown" isn't just for your safety. When you attempt to cross a flooded road, you put your life at risk and the lives of first responders and rescue teams, too. So please, if you encounter standing water: turn around.

Flash Flood Watch this (Thu) afternoon thru midnight. This is for the potential of flash flooding due to slow moving storms with very heavy rain. Be ready to act if warnings are issued, or flooding is observed. #TurnAroundDontDrown

Street Sweeping

Street sweeping returns this week: residences South of Broad St. will be swept on Monday and Tuesday; residences North of Broad St. will be swept on Thursday and Friday.

Street sweeping helps keep trash and other pollutants out of our waterways, but vehicles parked on the curb reduce the effectiveness of the sweepers since most debris accumulates in the gutter pan. So please, when the sweepers are in your neighborhood, find somewhere else to park your car! Visit www.fallschurchva.gov/sweep to learn more.

General information

The City is part of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Statistical Area, and is located only six miles from the Nation's Capital and inside the Capital Beltway. The City's downtown is situated at the intersection of Virginia Route 7 and U.S. Route 29. The City is served by Interstate 66, the East Falls Church and West Falls Church Metro stations, and by several convenient bus routes. Falls Church dates back to the late 1600s as an early Colonial settlement shared with Native Americans. The community was established around The Falls Church (Episcopal) that was founded in 1734. Falls Church became a township in 1875 and an independent city in 1948, when parents successfully obtained its separation from Fairfax County in an effort to establish a highly acclaimed school system.
