HOA Committee(s) Volunteer/Recruitment Annual Meeting (New)
By Clint Herbert, President on January 22, 2023
The Lorton Valley Homeowners Association Board of Directors (LVHOA BoD) announce we are hosting our inaugural annual meeting for the purpose of welcoming and familiarizing our volunteer residents who are ready to step up (or who have already stepped up), and support the various committees the HOA has to assist the BoD in managing our community. We also will use this forum to recruit additional volunteers to join the ranks of residents already volunteering. We have numerous committees that continue to require interested and committed residents (homeowner and tenant alike) who can lend their time and talent to reinventing and reinvigorating these committees with an eye towards creating and sustaining community events, improving community communications, ensuring compliance with community policies and guidelines, adjudicating violations of community covenants, and ensuring common areas are maintained and used properly.

The committees listed below are in need of your interest and commitment. There are no term limits...you volunteer until you decide you are done!

Dog Waste/Dog Trespassing on Private Property
By Clint Herbert on January 4, 2023
Dear Lorton Valley Homeowners and Residents,

Over the course of the years here in Lorton Valley the Property Management and Board of Directors have been faithfully and aggressively fighting the good fight regarding dog owners failing (refusing) to pick up their pet's waste or continually allowing their dog to enter (encroach) on others' property. In our continuing efforts we have recently spoken with Fairfax County Authorities regarding new and more enlightened processes we as a community can take. While the HOA can and will continue to aggressively pursue those pet owners who allow their pets to defecate in and around the common areas; to include our playgrounds, the county have made us aware of a program of direct benefit to you the homeowner: Homeowners in Fairfax County are able to download a form letter (available on our website) with which you may communicate with the offending neighbor regarding allowing their pet to enter your property. Allowing a pet to enter another's property is a violation of Fairfax County Code Section 41.1-2-15. "Permitting animals to trespass", which can result in a $250 fine and a Class 4 misdemeanor on the individuals criminal record. Please take the time to understand this advisory and take the necessary action to properly control your pet. Period!

Cleaning up after your pet is NOT Optional! Nor is keeping them leashed or NOT housing them outside!

Please contact our Property Manager, Mr. Randy Kline for further information and/or assistance in understanding this communication.

P.S. This letter may, from time to time, be updated to reflect changes in county law.

Upcoming Events
Critical Community-Wide Homeowners Vote
Sunday, January 8th to Tuesday, January 31st
Dear Homeowner,
 
The Lorton Valley Homeowners Association wish you and yours a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!  As a reminder in this new year, it is crucially important that you, as a homeowner, submit your vote on the recommended Annexation of the 30 luxury townhomes scheduled for start construction in 2023.  Participation is essential as the results of this vote will impact our community for years to come. The HOA requires 336 (67%) of the community’s 502 units to vote in the affirmative for annexation.  Any percentage less, the new development will remain a standalone self-managed HOA costing us tens of thousands of dollars annually in lost revenue from monthly assessments via the new subdivision.  We truly need your participation, support, and vote for annexation!
 
Documents concerning the new townhome subdivision are located at the www.lortonvalley.com website.  The access tab is located on the home page at the lower left column. Please click the tab for “Hughes Property Development”.  This will direct you to previously mailed information about the new townhome property for your review.
 
You will also notice that you can continue to download a paper ballot and submit it to the Community Manager Randy Kline, Randy.Kline@fsresidential.com either at the onsite office or placed into the lockbox located inside the Community Clubhouse near the water fountain. An online voting link has also been established for your convenience.  Specific instructions will be sent to you via email from “Vote-Now” to gain access to the Electronic Ballot.  All voting platforms (i.e., paper ballot, electronic ballot) will initially run through January 31, 2023.  Continuing on or about 31 January 2023,  the HOA will began a phone campaign targeting to those who have not yet voted followed by a door to door visit for those homeowners living in the community who continue being non-responsive.  Those absentee homeowners living outside the community will be contacted by phone, email, and certified letter until we are able to encourage you to participate as a proper stakeholder in your HOA community!  Indeed, regardless of your current status, resident or absentee homeowner, HOA supporter or not, it is your obligation and responsibility to engage in self-governance for your HOA community.
 
Thank you in advance for participating in this critical vote.
