Old Business:

  • Tree Removal – All work is complete and board has paid all invoices to date.
  • NVTC – The Association will continue to engage with Supervisor John Cook's office concerning the need for stormwater management improvements necessitated by upstream development of the Northern Virginia Training Center site (next meetings October 18 and November 20) and the potential development of a housing community in the area northeast of Braddock Road and Roberts Road (next meetings October 25 and November 20).
  • Landscaping – Board approved 5-0 quote from The Outdoor Man to do maintenance and beautification on the HOA easements at Commonwealth Boulevard and Sideburn Road.

New Business:

  • Homeowner's Concern – Ms. Carolyn Griffin (10213 Pumphrey Court) attended the HOA monthly meeting to share her concerns about recent demonstrations on the corner of Roberts Road and Commonwealth Boulevard.  Ms. Griffin desired to understand who owns the land at that intersection, what are the rules about protests/demonstrations at that location.  She also asked if there is a document that shows the land is private property.  The Board informed her that some of the property is owned by KPWCA and some is owned by Fairfax County Public Schools.  The Board will seek legal counsel on how to proceed.

Hearing no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
