PWCA Information for Members and Residents (March 2019, Message #2)

Good morning. Too many things on my plate so I missed two other items in yesterday’s email.

1. YARD WASTE COLLECTION: will start next week. For those new to our community, during the season between March/April and December Fairfax County also mandates a yard waste collection service. This occurs on Wednesday (first pickup April 3rd) and usually runs through December with the following two Wednesdays in January for Christmas tree pickup. Fairfax County mandates yard waste be placed out in paper bags or in containers marked ‘YARD WASTE’. For brush or limbs; the bundles should be no longer than 4 feet in length, the overall bundle must be less than 2 feet in diameter, and no single limb or piece of brush in the bundle shall be larger than 4 inches in diameter. See our website or for further information.

2. VOLUNTEER LANDSCAPING PROJECT: SATURDAY, MARCH 30th, 8AM, Braddock Road entrance. Keeping our community well kept takes work. We use volunteer projects to augment our paid support contracts, thereby allowing us to make the best use of our funds. On Saturday morning we plan to sod an area at the Carriagepark Road bus stop and split some of our large grasses and replant them in other areas of our community. The work should take no longer than two hours – amount of work accomplished is dependent on how many volunteers we get out. Shovels, gloves, and another wheelbarrow would be appreciated…

Thanks for bearing with me two days in a row to read this message…



PWCA Information for Members and Residents (March 2019, Message #1)

Good evening to all. Several items for your consideration and potential
action tonight.

1. PERMIT PARKING RENEWALS: For Resident and Non-Resident Owners. The new PWCA owners’ parking permits will be distributed between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 7, 2019 and between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at the Pool Parking Lot. TENANT PERMITS ARE NOT IMPACTED. A postcard has been mailed to you with additional information. There are 30+ resident owners who have not submitted at least their applications in at this time. EFFECTIVE MAY 1st – ANY VEHICLE WITH A GREEN PERMIT WILL BE TOWED AS THOSE PERMITS WILL BE EXPIRED. If you have not submitted at least your application in – please do so AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. You are at risk to not have new permits ready for you in time – if that is the case you will either need to get temporary visitor permits or park off community property until you obtain your new permits. Registrations are requested with the applications to ease the issuance process – if you elect to bring your registrations on the 7th and the vehicle registration address and name does not synchronize with the owners’ information exactly you may be asked to return on the 13th to pick up your permits.

2. 2019 SPRING TREE WORK: is in final stages. Sod will be placed over the stump locations. If you are near those locations we are looking for volunteers to potentially water the sod. The Association will supply a flow meter and all equipment to water the sod. Please contact either or if you are open to help.

3. ROAD RAIDERS CLEANUP EVENTS: please consider joining these broader community initiatives. They occur each month – speak to Matt Strain or myself for more information. The Spring Parks & Lake clean up at Royal Lake and Lakeside parks will be Saturday April 27th.

4. EAGLE SCOUT PROJECTS: Should any of you know aspiring Eagle Scouts, the Association has several projects that would fit the requirements. Please contact if you are interested.

5. POOL SEASON: multiple projects will be occurring at the pool over the next two months. With Joan’s passing we REALLY need people to step forward to help with the social aspects of the pool operations. Please contact or if you can give some time to help your community.

6. EASTER EGG HUNT: will occur on April 20th from 11AM to 1PM. I’ll include the flyer in the next message or see the website. There will be a cleanup event staged that morning – more information to follow.

Have a great evening!



RESIDENT and NON-RESIDENT OWNER – Parking Permit Renewals


To those who have mailed or handed in their applications – thank you.

If you have not – it is IMPORTANT you get the application turned in AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Specifically, if you have not turned in your applications by MARCH 12TH (via mail or hand delivery) you are at risk of not receiving your permits before your current permits expire.

Expired permits will be towed once the implementation window has passed.

Tenants, you are NOT impacted by this renewal – your permits continue to follow the standard process.

The letter explaining the details of the process may be found in the “FEBRUARY 2019 NEWSLETTER AND INSERTS” post.

Thanks again to those who have turned in their documents and read this entire email – to the others, please get this taken care of in the next few days.
