Keep Our Neighborhood Beautiful!
- Published on Monday, February 25, 2013 9:25 PM
It’s getting to be that time again, where our residents are venturing out of their homes for a quick walk through the neighborhood. We are all anticipating the warmer weather that’s soon to come, but for those of us who have dogs, we have the added responsibility of picking up after our furry friends. The Board has heard complaints recently about several pet walkers who aren’t doing their duty (pun intended.) We bought and maintain several Dog Waste stations around the community to make it easier to dispose of your dog’s mess. It’s sad that we should have to remind people that this is a basic obligation, but somehow there are a few who just don’t get it. What’s even sadder is to find dog waste just a few steps from the waste station.
We ask for your cooperation in keeping our sidewalks and grassy areas clean. We don’t pay people to clean this stuff up; if you leave it, chances are it’ll be there when you come back again, unless a good neighbor has done it for you. Do YOU really want to see this mess when you stroll around the area? Please do your part…Fairfax County considers this littering, and so do we.
Support for Deployed Service Members

If you’re one of our military members, we salute you for your service, and we appreciate the sacrifices you and your family make on our behalf. As a community, we want to make any deployments you may have as painless as possible while you’re gone. If you can keep us informed when you’re away from home for an extended period, there are several things we can do to make things easier for you. For instance, we can ask the Neighborhood Watch committee to keep an eye on your home and vehicle(s) if they’re parked outside. We would make sure your stored vehicle isn’t designated as abandoned, and towed away. Finally, we may be able to get volunteer help for your yard or to run errands if your spouse is overwhelmed with all of the little jobs you used to do.
Again, thank you for your service to our country. We wish you the best in your endeavors, and if you deploy, we look forward to seeing you back home safely.
