THERE WILL BE NO TRASH OR RECYCLING COLLECTION ON THANKSGIVING DAY (Thursday, November 27)!

The American Disposal Office will be closed, and no services will be provided. Our recycling collection (only) make up day will be the Saturday after the holiday (November 29th). Regular trash collection will resume on Monday, December 1. Remember, on make-up days, crews come through neighborhoods earlier than normal; so please make sure items are curbside (in front of your own house) the night before.


 

Runnymeade's First Annual Community Halloween Parade was an outstanding success. Thanks to everyone who participated, and special thanks to Brian Kirby, new Activities and Events Chair. Brian was known to many in Runnymeade as the Water Balloon Toss guy. Now he is also known as The Man in the Yellow Hat!

Street Painting and Tree Trimming

 

November 5, 2014

 

ATTENTION ALL RUNNYMEADE RESIDENTS AND GUESTS

 

Runnymeade is finishing street lines painting on Ambassador Way as well as: four visitor parking spaces across from 6015 – 6021 Heatherwood Drive; a reserved parking space number 255 on Castletown Way; and a visitor space on Castletown Way to the left (facing the space from the street) next to current space 255, on Wednesday, November 5, 2014.

 

On the same day, Wednesday, November 5, 2014, Premium, our Grounds Contractor, will perform tree trimming of overhanging and dead branches in common areas of Runnymeade on Heatherwood Court and Crown Royal Circle. 

 

Both of these projects must be done at this time.  We appreciate your cooperation.

 

This work requires all vehicles to be removed on November 5, 2014, from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., from the following areas:

 

  • all of Ambassador Way
  • the unreserved parking spaces directly across from 6015 – 6021 Heatherwood Drive
  • the reserved parking space number 255 on Castletown Way
  • the unreserved parking space on Castletown to the left of 255 (as you face the space from the street).
  • Heatherwood Court reserved parking spaces:        210, 220, 221, 222, 223, 224, 225, 226, 227, 228, and all unreserved parking spaces immediately surrounding those reserved spaces
  • Crown Royal Circle reserved parking spaces:        4, 5, 6, 14, and all unreserved spaces immediately surrounding those reserved parking spaces, as well as the unreserved parking spaces directly across from  reserved parking space 65.

 

Your vehicle(s) must be moved off the streets and parking spaces noted by 8:00 a.m. on November 5 and must remain off until after 5:00 p.m. the same day in order for this necessary work to be completed.  You MUST move your vehicle(s) or it/they will be towed or relocated at your expense.  This must be done to afford the contractors the space they need to do their work, as well as to avoid damaging your vehicle(s) during the work.   Garage townhome residents:  you may leave one vehicle in your driveway, provided it does not hang over the sidewalk or the yellow marked curbs.

Runnymeade Homeowners Association Board Meeting
 
 

The November RHOA Board meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 25 at 7:00 pm at the Franconia Governmental Center.

The RHOA Board of Directors and interested homeowners generally meet on the 4th Tuesday of every month with the exception of December. The Board has to schedule its monthly meetings around the availability of meeting sites, so dates and locations are sometimes changed for that reason. Residents are advised to check this website for updates as changes can be made at the last minute that are beyond our control. Also, schedule changes are e-mailed to residents who sign up for the RHOA-Web-Site-News notifications.


 

The next ACC meeting . . .
 
The Runnymeade Architectural Control Committee (ACC) normally meets the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm. at the offices of Jeffrey Charles & Associates, 6422 Grovedale Dr., Suite 201-C, Alexandria, VA 22310, in the upstairs conference room.  

The ACC has to schedule its monthly meetings around the availability of meeting sites; so dates, times, and locations are often changed for that reason. Residents are advised to check the Community Sign and this website for updates, as changes are often made at the last minute that are beyond the ACC's control. Also, schedule changes are e-mailed to residents who sign up for the RHOA-Web-Site-News notifications on the home page of Runnymeade.org.  For the location and time of the next meeting, you can also always call Jeffrey Charles & Associates at 703-924-5900.

Have you ever wanted a handy list of what you should and should not put out to be recycled?

American Disposal, our trash contractor, has just prepared a colorful flyer that you can post on your refrigerator or kitchen bulletin board. To get a copy, just click here:

Protect Our Water

When it rains, the water running along our streets vanishes down storm drains in Runnymeade. Although many people assume otherwise, the water in a storm drain does not go to a wastewater treatment plant. Instead, it drains
directly into Cameron Run, which leads to the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay.

This means motor oil, pesticides, paint, yard debris, harmful fertilizers, and trash all have the potential to impact our drinking water, as well as impair or destroy many forms of aquatic life.

Fortunately, there are some steps we can all take to make a difference:

 

·         Storm drains are NOT trash cans! Put trash and recycling where it belongs, not in our streams.

·         Properly dispose of motor oil — one gallon of oil can pollute two million gallons of water

·         Don’t let suds from washing your car go down the storm drain – they can be toxic to wildlife.

·         Scoop the poop. Help keep harmful bacteria from dog waste out of our waterways.

·         Be careful with fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides. Use only when necessary, apply when rain will not wash them away, and sweep up excess.
 

·         Prevent and report storm drain dumping. If you see hazardous wastes like paint, pesticides, or motor oil dumped in storm drains, report it to Fairfax County at 703-691-2131, TTY 711.


Only Rain in the Storm Drain! Make sure that nothing other than water ever goes down your storm drain. Help keep water safe for children and future generations.
