In 1986, Tantallon North was a small scattered community of about 100 homes. Autumnwood Lane consisted of a distinct section of paved roadway separated by a metal barrier and a long section of unpaved dirt trail passable only by motorcycles and/or all -drive vehicles. Othman Drive was a dead-end street with only a few houses completed. Ishtar and Aten Streets each contained two complete houses and were basically dirt trails. Construction of homes on Hazem Court and Othman Court was just in the beginnings stages. Residents had many concerns about the slow pace of progress in such fundamental areas as street paving and street lighting. Additionally, other services such as snow plowing, street cleaning and police patrols were either poor or non-existent. In June 1986, a committee was formed to organize the Tantallon North Area Civic Association. That committee created and distributed a letter of interest to each of the approximate 100 houses in the area, inviting them to an organizational meeting at Harmony Hall Regional Center. The agenda was specific and listed a number of area concerns. A kickoff meeting was held as planned on July 15, 1986 beginning the Tantallon North Area Civic Association (TNACA).
As of January 2018, the Tantallon North Area has grown to approximately 500 homes. Our boundaries include Flaim Lane to Syria Court on Fort Washington Road, Sero Estates Drive and intersecting streets, and Autumnwood Lane from Fort Washington Road to Braeburn Street.
The Tantallon North Area Civic Association is an active and necessary organization continuing to provide volunteer assistance, leadership, and a community voice for its residents.
TNACA is involved with its community to address concerns of crime prevention, trash and leaf collection, street lighting, fire and road safety, scholarships, animal control, Neighborhood Watch, snow plowing, beautification, transportation issues, resident communications and other community and local government partnerships.

Dear TNACA Community
Because of your giving spirit and generosity, our Education Committee was able to deliver Christmas envelopes for two needy families at each of our community schools (Potomac Landing, Accokeek Academy, and Friendly High School). The total of six envelopes each contained a $100 Walmart Gift Card and a Giant or Safeway Gift Card. The principals and guidance counselors were so appreciative of our community partnering with them to make a positive difference. Thank you TNACA Community for caring for our children and their families who are less fortunate!!!
The Education Committee will continue to highlight and recognize children in our community with your help.

TNACA Let's Help Our Neighbor - From our President Ralph Davis
TANTALLON NORTH AREA CIVIC ASSOCIATION
Our neighbors, Mr. & Mrs. Alonzo Black, who reside at 11903 Ambrose Lane, are currently facing a medical hardship. The Black’s 38-year-old daughter, Avyka Campbell, has been diagnosed with a rare form of anal cancer which causes severe pain, discomfort, and renders her incapable of performing routine activities. In June, she learned that the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes, had progressed from Stage 2 to Stage 3, and that an even more aggressive treatment plan is necessary for her survival. Her treatments this time will include two cycles of chemotherapy infusions over six weeks, followed by seven weeks of daily chemotherapy pills, more chemotherapy infusions, and twice daily radiation. Below is the Channel 4 Interview Tracee Wilkins Link:
