History of Announcements

  • Trash/Recycling Toters Available

How can townhome residents procure a trash and/or recycling toter that complies with the County & AFHOA Standards?

The Association has been working with Patriot Disposal to provide hard-sided containers with tight-fitting, attached lids. An agreement has been made that facilitates townhome owners leasing a 32-gallon recycling and/or trash toter, for a one-time administrative fee of $20 for one container and $15 for a second. These containers will be replaced by Patriot for issues arising from normal use for the life of the service contract. There will be a replacement charge for each toter or bin that is lost, stolen, or damaged.

Please email Kristen Cornwell at kcornwell@afhoa.net or call 703-729-6680 to order a toter. Provide your full name, address, the number of toters you need, and how you intend to pay the administrative fee, (added to your HOA account with Summit Management or by check, mailed in or dropped off at the Association Office). The first distribution of these containers is tentatively scheduled for the last week in April.

Association Members who would like additional toters should contact Patriot Disposal and lease them for $25 each.

NOTICE: The 18-gallon open-top recycling bins previously provided by Patriot Disposal to the townhomes will be collected and disposed of if put at the curb for collection, as they do not comply with the Association’s or the County’s standard for storage or disposal of recycling or trash. This will begin April 1, 2019.

  • Trail Closure

The trail located behind the Crossroads Tennis Courts is closed from Claiborne Parkway to the trail intersection at Wayside Circle and Cross Breeze Place for tree removal.  The trail is expected to be closed for approximately two days.  Please avoid the area until work is completed.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

  • Gov’t Shutdown/Furlough Relief

The Association has been approached by Association Members affected by the Government Shutdown and Furlough, seeking relief from late and administrative fees for unpaid Association assessments. The Association Board of Trustees has unanimously approved a measure that will suspend late and administrative fees applied by the Association to HOA accounts past due for Association Member accounts in good standing as of December 31, 2018. This relief from late and administrative fees will be in effect for a period of 90 days past the date the Shutdown/Furlough has ended to allow those affected to bring their HOA account current. This does not waive or reduce the monthly Association assessment. This policy will be applied retroactively and will allow Government Employees and those directly affected by the Shutdown/Furlough that have been unable to pay the January 1, 2019 Association assessment to seek relief. The Association will require proof of employment by the Federal Government or an affected department thereof; that one is indeed affected by the Shutdown/Furlough and proof of Association Membership. This should include a federal government photo ID for Association Members on record with the HOA / Loudoun County as the owner of a property in Ashburn Farm. Or a state issued ID and/or utility bill along with a federal government ID, etc. You will need to provide the necessary information to the Association Office staff at the Windmill Community Center on Windmill Drive to be added to the Shutdown / Furlough Relief List.

  • WIND DAMAGE IN ASHBURN FARM

The Association would like to thank everyone who has reported falling trees/limbs since Friday. Your patience and understanding during this situation was greatly appreciated. The Association is currently in triage mode and is assessing each individual situation. The staff and contractors are dealing with the most severe/dangerous issues first, but will be responding to each situation as quickly as possible. If you have spoken with someone at the Association, sent in an email, or the tree is blocking an Association sidewalk or path, we’ve got you on the list and are working as quickly as we are able.

If you have not reported damage to your property from a common area tree, please contact the Association Office at 703-729-6680, or maintenance@afhoa.net.

On properties where there is damage to a home or other structure from a common area tree, the Association is asking those property owners to contact their homeowners insurance provider and/or their own tree service to remove the tree from the home or structure. The Association will not remove trees that have fallen onto your home, deck, shed, etc. Virginia state law considers these incidents “acts of god”, and the tree or fallen debris becomes the property of the person whose property it fell onto, at the property line.

The Association will do its best to be a good neighbor, and will remove common area trees from fences with permission from the property owner. If there is good vehicle access, and our staff or contractors are doing similar work in the area, the Association is glad to help remove debris that fell from the common area onto your property. Please place the debris near the common area tree that fell, just outside of your property boundaries where it can be accessed. The Association will not haul away debris created by trees that originated from private or neighboring properties.

We appreciate your continued patience as the staff and contractors work to resolve all of the tree issues in the community!

 

  • COMMON AREA SPRAYING

Crews will be on the property beginning 3/1 to spray turf applications to control grassy and broadleaf weeds (weather permitting). The spraying will continue for approximately 7-10 days. Notification flags will be placed near or on areas that have been treated to remind pedestrians, children, and those walking pets to stay out of treated areas until they have dried.
