Election Officials Needed
Posted on Jul 13th, 2019
November 5th seems like a long way away, but the Chesapeake Registrar’s office is calling for volunteers to serve that day in one of the voting precincts. If you are interested, a four hour training class is required (two hour ‘refresher’ if you have volunteered in the past.) Training classes will be held Oct 16th to 23rd at the General Registrar’s office located at 411 Cedar Road. To learn more please call 757-277-9797.
KWCL In Need of Storage
Posted on Apr 25th, 2019
Can you help us with our storage problem?
Over many years the Civic League has accumulated a significant amount of equipment and other assets that have inhabited space in the sheds and garages of many of our KWCL Board Members. From tables to traffic cones; canopies to carolling sheet; prizes to a public address system; things are stacking up! Consequently, the KWCL board is looking for a storage solution. The obvious solution would be to secure storage space at a rental facilities but this is can be an expensive proposition and could require a bump in membership fees down the road. Alternatively, we would like to hear from anyone who might have extra space to provide or rent to the KWCL. A 10’ x 10’ space would work very well. Please contact us if you can help.

What's Up
City of Chesapeake Bulk Pick-up Service
Have you noticed the large truck with boom arm and claw that occasionally comes through the neighborhood? That is the ‘bulk pick-up service’ that the City offers. If you have limbs or other yard debris that won’t fit into clear plastic bags you can pile it at the curb in front of your home and the city will pick it up.
To initiate the service please call bulk pick-up at 757-382-2489 before 5 pm on Thursday. Limbs and branches should be cut to 4-foot lengths or the claw will not be able to grab them.
Please note, after the truck leaves you are responsible for sweeping up any leftover debris. This is actually a city ordinance (Section 62-7). More than that, as we get into the season with potentially heavy rainfall, leaves and small twigs can quickly clog the storm drains and cause backups into the street. Please help keep the community safe by cleaning up the leftovers.
Kemp Woods has a Facebook page too! If you're on Facebook, "Like" our page so you can follow us for updates and events.  Just click on the icon below to visit our Facebook page.
Kemp Woods Civic League Minutes and Newsletters are another way to stay informed with Kemp Woods news and events. Just use the Minutes and Newsletter links on this Home Page - Navigation Bar.  
Our website has gone through a recent upgrade to catch up with the latest software version.  Most of the changes will not impact how our registered users interface with the website. In fact, most of the changes will only be apparent to the website administrator.  Our volunteer web admin is still learning to navigate the new changes and hopes to soon implement a few new features the KWCL Board has in mind.
Residents who were previously registered on the website will have to update their password during the Logon process by clicking on the Forgot Password link. The same is true if they forgot their username and need to use the Forgot Username link. Instructions will be sent to the email that is registered on website. Anyone whose registered email is no longer valid, should re-register as a new user. In fact, if you haven’t been on the site for a while, you may just want to re-register to make sure all your information is up to date.
Only Kemp Woods residents can register on the website. Membership to the Civic League is not required. Each registrant will be verified as a resident in our neighborhood before given approval.  There are Public areas on our website that do not require registration or logon to view, however they  are very limited.  Only registered users get full access to all pages on the website, while they are logged on.

There are two choices for registration:
KWCL Membership and Web Access (Join or renew membership & full web access)
Web Access Only  (Full web access, no KWCL membership)
The website is a good way to get information about your Civic League and community.  It is also an excellent way to get questions answered by your KWCL Board.  It is provided as resource for our residents. Residents who have questions about registering, website navigation, or anything regarding Kemp Woods, please use the Contact Us feature on this page.
