Retiring Officers

The LaVale Civic Improvement Association (LCIA) works with Allegany County Government as a link to the residents of the LaVale area.  It helps maintain three parks and two tennis courts in LaVale and applies for open space funds to help improve the LaVale Area.  One of the main projects is the Annual LaVale Sidewalk Clean Sweep Day during April.  In addition the LCIA works with the Braddock Run Watershed Association and the LaVale Athletic Association.

The LCIA meets on the fourth Monday of each month from March through November, with the exception of May.  Memorial Day falls on the fourth Monday so the May meeting will move to Tuesday May 28th at 6:30 at the LaVale Library.  All LaVale residents are invited to come to these meetings with questions, ideas and concerns about their area.  For details about the organization see www.lavale.org or call William Kight at 301-707-6144.

The Allegany County Commissioners, members of the LaVale Civic Improvement Association and the YMCA playground inspectors dedicated the new playground at Holly Avenue Recreation Area on August 8, 2005.


This project, that also included a new maintenance shed, was made possible through a grant awarded by the County Commissioners that was funded through the State of Maryland's Program Open Space.


As Local Sponsor of the park, the LaVale Civic Improvement Association provided planning of the project and 10% of the project cost. The playground was installed by Playground Specialists, Inc. of Emmitsburg.
