BEFORE YOU PLAN TO DIG
Posted on Feb 1st, 2018
Before you plan to dig, contact the ACC. Then, before you dig, dial 811 for Miss Utility. As a reminder, almost all exterior improvement projects require ACC approval prior to construction. Exterior improvements requiring approval range from changing the color of a front door to the construction of an addition.
The process for obtaining ACC approval is not difficult at all. Consult the Guidelines as you develop the project’s plans. Make sure the project complies with the Guidelines. Next, fill out an application with complete project details. Submit the application, via regular mail or email, to our management company. The management company will contact you if there are any questions about the application. Your project will be put on the agenda for the next monthly ACC meeting. The ACC will review all projects received during the month. You will receive a written notification of approval or disapproval within a few business days after the ACC meeting. Homeowners are welcome to attend ACC meetings.
There are resources to help you through the process. To begin with, the Guidelines are available here. Please consult the Guidelines for general requirements and then for the specific project that you are planning. The application is available here. There is checklist that will let you know, for example, if your project requires a plat map to be included with the application. Following the checklist is a good way to help make sure your application is complete. Lastly, if you still have questions, email the ACC at email@example.com and someone will help you.
Thank you very much for your cooperation with the process. The season for home improvements is coming up. The ACC is looking forward to working with you.

FOX MILL AND PINECREST ROADS SAFETY UPDATE
Posted on Oct 31st, 2017
The Fox Mill-Pinecrest Roads intersection continues to be a top road-related issue for homeowners. Unfortunately, a 2016 VDOT traffic signal study concluded that the safety situation is getting worse. On top of that, there are several other development projects in the works. This includes construction of a walkway on the north side of Fox Mill Road that will likely increase pedestrian traffic, a proposal to widen Fox Mill Road to four lanes, and another idea to connect Pinecrest to Glade, which would only bring more traffic to the neighborhood.
At the September FMEHA Board meeting, a new task force was officially created to advocate for: 1) immediate traffic control measures at Fox Mill and Pinecrest Roads that can increase safety, and 2) a long-term plan for Fox Mill Road that will address future development and the larger, structural issues that lead to many accidents at that intersection. That task force will work with other concerned organizations and citizens who have already created an online petition and website at www.foxmilltraffic.com.
The Hunter Mill District Transportation Advisory Council Meeting took place on September 27th at the North County Governmental Center located at 1801 Cameron Glen Drive in Reston. The Advisory Council provided updates on various transportation projects within the District and held an open floor to hear transportation related issues from the community. A presentation was given to the Hunter Mill Traffic Advisory by the task force. Check it out.

KETTERING TRAIL BRIDGE REBUILT BY GIRL SCOUT TROOP #2507
Posted on Jun 2nd, 2017
The Ketttering Trail Bridge was rebuilt by Girl Scout Troop #2507. This 32-foot long bridge was destroyed in 2014 by a fallen tree. The bridge connected the Fox Mill Parkland from Viking Drive and Tewksbury with the easement that runs all the way to Fairfax County Parkway. The troop has spent most of their year learning about planning, building and woodworking in preparation for this project to earn their Bronze Award. The Bronze Award is the highest honor that a Girl Scout Junior Troop can achieve.

Thank you neighbors for continuing to keep Fox Mill Estates a very safe community to live in. Over the past months we have seen crime remain low in our community and we hope that trend continues. By doing your part, we can all work together to achieve this goal. This includes locking your doors on both home and vehicles, placing valuables out of sight in your vehicle (including GPS, charging cables, etc.) and keeping the porch and motion lights on at night. It is a proven fact that communities that are well lit, create a deterrent to crime as thieves prefer to work under the cover of darkness. Recent patrols came across 1, 7 and 5 open garages in the middle of the night and while this is a decrease from previous months, we remind you to close your doors and protect your property.
If you see suspicious activity or have a complaint or concern, call the Fairfax County Non-Emergency number 703-691-2131 and report it or you may report it online http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/police or http://www. fairfaxcounty.gov/complaints and click on “Make a Report.” The more reports made for any illegal activity, the more likely it will be stopped as the statistics and data trends emerge.
If you are interested in volunteering with this committee, more assistance is always appreciated. Please forward an email to neighborhood_watch@ fmeha.org to see what you can do to help.
Let’s be Proactive rather than Reactive to these types of situations. “If you see something, say something.”
