Runnymeade Homeowners Association Board Meeting
The next RHOA Board meeting will be held Tuesday, May 23, 2017, at 7:00 pm at the Franconia Government Center, 6121 Franconia Rd.,  Alexandria, VA 22310, in the community room.  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 Architectural Control Committee (ACC) generally meets the second Tuesday of each month.  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.

Eco-Fact

5 Ways Trees Help Us Everyday:

  1. Trees located along streets act as glare and reflection control
  2. Trees cut down on noise pollution by acting as sound barriers
  3. Trees provide shade, reducing yearly heating & cooling costs by nearly $2.1 Billion
  4. In 1 year, an acre of trees can absorb as much carbon dioxide as produced by a car driven up to 8700 miles...that is more miles than it would take to drive around the world.
  5. Trees improve water quality by slowing and filtering rainwater.

 




 

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.


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.
