Charlestowne Area Civic League
Objectives & Purpose
A. The purpose of this League shall be to encourage participation in all activities that have to do with the civic, social, and cultural betterment of the Charlestowne Area.
B. To uphold the principles of good government and take an active interest in the affairs concerning the Charlestowne Area and the City of Virginia Beach, Virginia.
C. To cooperate with the other organizations engaged in the furthering of civic affairs.
Charlestowne is composed of four subdivisions:
- Charlestowne East
- Charlestowne Lakes
- Charlestowne Woods
There is also a Charlestowne Lakes South, located a little farther down Centerville Turnpike, but it is not part of our Civic League. For more information concerning Charlestowne Lakes South, check out their website at http://clsouthcl.com.
Due to our close proximity to the Christian Broadcasting Network (which is in a No-Fly Zone), we very rarely hear any jet noise either.

National Night Out
National Night Out is an annual event designed to build neighborhood spirit and fight crime by strengthening the ties between the police and the community. The goal is to heighten crime-prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs, and most importantly, send a messge that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. This year we will celebrate National Night Out on Tuesday, August 2nd, at the Charlestowne East Park, located at the corner of Legare and Dalrymple, from 6-8 pm. Many activities are planned, along with various vendors.
Have You Paid Your Dues?!
Dues are $15 per year per family, due in January. The money goes toward the entrance signs (repair and landscaping around them), the newsletters, Neighborhood Watch, annual picnics, Share Your Light Night, neighborhood clean-up supplies, advertisement for our yard sales & meetings, and CCO dues, among other things. It is a small investment for a nicer neighborhood!
