Home : About Us : QOLCOMM

QOLCOMM is a communication initiative to increase engagement throughout Joint Base Andrews by encouraging the community to provide quality of life feedback and ideas. The suggestions are collected monthly by the First Sergeants Council then approved and prioritized by senior leadership. After final approval, suggestions will be added to the "Pending QoL Submissions" for tracking and feedback.

There is a deep hole in the ground next to the sidewalk, opposite the street drain at the southwest corner of White Ct and Virginia Ave.  It is hazardous to anyone walking, biking or running on the sidewalk there, because one misstep could cause a serious injury.  It has been like this for at least six months or more.
The youth baseball fields are in need of improvement to both the infield and outfield. The dugouts are falling apart and pose a major safety risk to the children as the roofing (or lack thereof) is falling in and the fence is mess up in multiple spots. A water fountain would also be nice out there.
Multiple areas on base are in need of better lighting. This poses safety concerns to families when people are out walking early in the morning or late in the evening. They have been replacing old lights but not installing new lighting in areas that are not well lit.
