UPDATED INFORMATION ITEMS:
- HALLOWEEN. Fairfax County issued the following guidance. “Traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating and large gatherings are NOT recommended this year, but there are safer alternatives for celebrating Halloween.” Fairfax City provided information on various activities grouped as Higher Risk, Moderate Risk, and Lower Risk. Following this guidance, we are not hosting the social event normally held at this time at the pool. For those who may go out to trick-or-treat anyway, please be mindful of whether homes are participating or not.
- ANNUAL MEETING – TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2020 (RAIN DATE NOVEMBER 19, 2020), 8:00PM, POOL PARKING LOT. Due to the challenges in securing interior meeting locations the 2020 Annual Meeting of the Members of the Association will occur in the Pool Parking Lot. Official participation by proxy is strongly encouraged. This is intended to be a short meeting due to the environmental considerations. There will be no food or beverages served, no door prizes will be given, there are no restroom facilities available, and no supplied seating – if you need a chair please bring your own. The meeting will be available to you virtually in the same manner as the monthly Board meetings currently are. Please see the annual meeting notice for additional information. The Annual Meeting Notice, Agenda, Proxy Form and Call for Candidates will be distributed in the near future. All residents, whether you are a renter or an owner, are encouraged to attend to find out the current status and way-ahead for our community – just this year we’d appreciate you attending virtually rather than physically. For our owners , please consider submitting your name for a Director position – fresh insights and enthusiasm are welcomed!
- BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING, NOVEMBER 19, 2020, 7:00PM. The November board meeting will be conducted via the RingCentral virtual meeting framework. See the website under ‘Meetings’, select the year (2020), then the meeting (20201119). Document #01-1 contains the information to join the meeting. Should the Annual Meeting have to proceed on the rain date this meeting will be either rescheduled or canceled.
- ELECTRONIC CONSENT FORMS. For those who may not know, electronic consent forms provide the Association the ability to send certain communications to you electronically only, thereby saving us the cost of printing and mailing those documents. The form is available on our website within Policy Resolution 17-04.
- Parking: With the addition of new residents to our community I thought I’d just give you a couple of thoughts. When parking in any curb-side parking have both your front and rear wheels on the concrete gutter. Do not park in any yellow painted curbs. The entire community (assigned and unassigned spaces) is permit parking only – have a permit in your vehicle or risk the vehicle being towed. If you are parked in any visitor space or at any curb-side parking, remember to move your vehicle every week, after ten days your vehicle is subject to towing. No parking or storage of any vehicles (e.g. trailers, motorcycles) on common areas. White-painted curbs are snow-emergency no parking areas – they will be marked prior to snow events that will activate those no parking zones. If you have questions or need more information, please review the October 2020 Community Rules and the 2020-2021 Snow Removal Policy on our website.
