Dear Neighbors,
 
Spring is in the Air.  We are starting to see some of our neighbors out sprucing up their yards and homes.  It is good to see the efforts being made to keep Fairland Towns looking “flash” and ensuring our neighborhood remains a preferred place to live.

Winter Open Meeting.  We had a fair turnout of homeowners at our February meeting.  We spent a good amount of out time hearing what is on the minds of our residents.  Minutes are included on our Fairland Towns website.

Parking.  We have had a rise in parking complaints regarding improperly parked cars across the neighborhood.  So far, each was resolved with a freindly conversation. Homeowners are reminded that it is against HOA rules to park anywhere but garages, drives and designated parking spaces.  You cannot park on the street along yellow curbs or in front of your own driveway.  We own our roads, and this policy is for safety of residents and children, to ensure access for fire and rescue vehicles, and facilitate trash and postal vehicle services.  Improperly parked vehicles are subject to tow and impoundment at owner expense.  HOA by laws state that homeowners can have a MAXIMUM of 2 vehicles (including guests) parked in common area parking at any given time.  Of course, we understand short term visitor parking needs.  However, long-term parking of more than 2 vehicles is a violation.  We prefer not to go to a “parking permit” system, as has been suggested.  Please be considerate.
 
Road Repair.  We renewed efforts toward making repairs on the Irvin Court roadway.  The contractor advised that we postpone the French drain and resurfacing until next year when costs are expected to reduce signifianctly due to economic forecasts.  In consultation with present and past board members and residents, we will look to do those repairs next Spring, and use that opportunity to possibly do more extensive road maintenance, finances permitting.

Spring Clean-up and Garden Blitz.  Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 27, 9:00-12:00 and our FT neighborhood spring cleaning. Sure would be nice to see a few more of our neighbors out to lend a hand for even part of the time – its ALL of OUR neighborhood.  We are also looking to use this as an opportunity for everyone to get out into their own front garden and spend some time making the grounds look great for yourself and your neighbors.  If you need some physical assistance in doing that, please contact  me ahead of time and we will get someone to pitch in and help you.  Anyone interested in assisting a neighbor in that regard is also asked to notify  me.   More to follow.

Power Washer Available.  The HOA has purchased a portable Ryobi power washer (2500psi) for use by all Fairland Towns homeowners.  It is the perfect way to spruce up your exterior brick, windows, decks, fences, garage doors, drives and sidewalks.  It will be available to checkout on weekends, starting March 30, in four (4) hour blocks.   There will be no charge, but we will require users to sign a responsibility waiver and leave a fully refundable cash deposit to ensure timely return.  Homeowners can call/text me (Kevin) at 703-772-6216 to reserve the washer (pending my availability).

Architectural Review Board (ARB).  Sincere appreciation to those who have addressed the home repair issues from our November ARB walkaround.  Unfortunately, there are some us who have not yet done so, and some who have been out of compliance for more than a year, and one home for almost 10 years.  You have high expectations of the HOA Board to address your concerns; likewise, we expect your willing and timely cooperation to keep the neighborhood standards high -- that is what you elected us to do! .  We prefer not to enforce compliance through monetary means, but may look to do so to ensure fairness and that all homeowners are held to the same standards.  The next ARB walkaround will be in late March, and any needed notifications mailed in April.  Consider volunteeering to assist Hector in that walkaround and help to assess our neighborhoods's architectual standards.  Contact Hector directly.

Are you IT Smart?  We could use someone with tech/comuter savvy to help us cleanup our web page.  Please contact me to pitch-in.
 
Until next newsletter, spread kindness!
 
Cheers, Kevin, Ronda, Hector, Jeff and Neil
