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.

Neighborhood Cleanup Day
Take pride in our neighborhood and help clean it up! Our next Neighborhood Cleanup Day is Saturday, March 28th. Please join the work crew at the dead-end of Beaufain at 9:00 am to help pick up trash. We will meet there and then spread out to clean the major roads. Bring your work gloves; the civic league will provide bags and picks.
Community Yard Sale
The dates for our next community-wide yard sale are April 11 & 18. Anyone can participate. The civic league will advertise; you do the rest at your place. Happy shopping!
The civic league is planning a bake sale in conjunction with our community yard sale on April 11 at 1801 Blue Knob Rd. For more information, contact Charlene Geiger at 479-2038. We need people to help bake and/or help at the sale. Please price your baked goods and drop them off at Charlene's the day before the sale - 5328 Beaufain. Please no store-bought items.
Pay Your Dues Online with Paypal
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!
