Blocking Sidewalks/Parking on Lawns
To help ensure the safety of the Members and their loved ones, the Association is taking steps to improve enforcement of vehicle & parking issues. Parking in a manner that blocks the Association owned public sidewalk in Private Street Neighborhoods is a violation of the Ashburn Farm Association Parking Policy and endangers pedestrians when they are forced into the street to walk around an obstruction that blocks the sidewalk. Vehicles that park on driveway aprons, or in another manner that blocks the public sidewalk will receive a violation letter from the Association and could be invited to a 55-513 Hearing, where fines can be assessed. Vehicles that park on driveway aprons and extend back into the drive lane will be invited to a 55-513 Hearing &/or towed. Parking on lawns is also prohibited & is a violation of the Association Standards.
Reserved Parking is assigned by lot numbers. Click here to locate your lot numbers using your house number and street name.
Any resident on a street with reserved parking who finds an unauthorized vehicle in his/her reserved parking space may initiate immediate towing of the unauthorized vehicle, however, residents are strongly encouraged to solve any problems with the owner of the offending vehicle, if possible, prior to implementing towing of the same.
Only residents with reserved spaces may call an authorized towing company to remove an offending vehicle from their reserved space. The initiator of the tow must be present when the towing company arrives and must provide the towing company with a driver’s license. The driver’s license will enable the towing company to verify the initiators address to ensure that it corresponds to the reserved parking spaces assigned to a particular townhome. The initiator of the tow must sign an impound slip authorizing the tow.
