New Business:

Tree on Nottinghill:  It is on KPWHOA property and is dead.  Jim will call J&L for removal, along with a branch on an adjacent tree.


No damage from the hurricane has been reported.


Common land bridges: The Board discussed the issue of unauthorized bridges, including how they affect the HOA’s insurance coverage should someone get hurt on these structures.  This fall we will visit the area to see if the bridges are still in-place. If they still exist we will take the necessary steps to remove them.


Civic Association Meeting- They have requested a Board member at the meeting on September 27th to discuss common land, along with Fairfax County.  Larry and Armand will represent the Board.


Joe received an inquiry from a realtor regarding the policy of fences located on common land. The suggestion by the realtor involved was to provide a waiver to allow the fence to remain as is, or to possibly allow the homeowner on Allenby to purchase the property.  Joe explained the problem with the waiver (liability and the covenant statement regarding use by all the members) and also the logistics of trying to sell the property.  The realtor admitted they were pretty sure they already knew the answers, but thought they would ask anyway.


There will be a public hearing on September 27th regarding a new cell phone tower at the Commonwealth pool.



Hearing no new business, Linda motioned to adjourn; Larry seconded. Concluded at 8:12 pm.
