 Open Discussion:

Answer: This has been an ongoing challenge. Larry Velte will submit an article to the Kings Park West Herald regarding the differences. Both the Civic and Community Associations face this ongoing challenge. The KPW Community Association cannot change its name, per the Virginia Statutes on HOAs.

Answer: Possibly. New homeowners should have received a HOA disclosure packet when they bought the property stating that they were HOA members.  The HOA tried before to change its name to something distinctive from the Civic Association, but was not allowed to do so.

Answer: The board will get in touch with Fairfax County on that issue.

Answer: The Board will look into this issue and address it, possibly hiring a tree trimming company to do the work.
