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.

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.

Is your mailbox in good condition and repair showing no signs of rust? Mailbox doors and flags should  be present and in working order.

If you can’t read your sign, neither can emergency personnel! 
Pipe stem signs are privately owned and maintained by the property owners on the pipe stem.
One person on the pipe stem needs to take the initiative to order for the “stem.”

For the safety of our community’s walkers, joggers, and strollers, just a friendly reminder to all homeowners to keep the sidewalks near their homes clear of overhanging tree limbs and encroaching shrubbery.  Please survey your property adjacent to sidewalks, and clear all intruding shrubbery to allow safe passage.
Fairfax County Police are warning residents of Herndon and the rest of the county to be on the lookout for bears, as spring is the time of year when black bears and cubs start to emerge from their winter dens. And we've had bear sightings in the area numerous times in recent years.
Black bears and their cubs typically emerge from their dens in mid March to early May, so it is prime time for bear activity in Virginia. While bears typically avoid humans, they may wander into suburban areas to dig through garbage cans, gobble up pet food, or pick through shrubs that produce berries, according to a report from the Fairfax County Police Department.
A black bear was caught on video last June scampering through Herndon's Fox Mill Estates. Bears are often sighted in nearby Great Falls, and it's not uncommon to see them wander into suburban areas like Reston and Herndon.
The best thing to do if you see a bear is to remove the food source as soon as it is safe to do so, which usually resolves the problem, sending the bear looking for food elsewhere.
Be very wary of female bears with cubs, who should never be approached. A female bear will usually send her cubs up a tree and leave the area when sensing danger, returning when it is safe. But if you hear her "woof," slap the ground, or clack her teeth together, you're getting a warning you should heed.
The Fairfax County Wildlife Management Specialist and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries has the following tips for residents:
  • Keep a respectful distance. In most cases, the bear will move on quickly.
  • If a bear is up a tree on or near your property, give it space. Do not approach.
  • Bring your pets inside to provide the bear a clear path to leave your property.
  • If you see a very small cub, do not try to remove it from the area or “save it.”
  • Secure your garbage in bear-resistant trashcans or store it in a secure building.
  • If you have a trash collection service, put your trash out the morning of the pickup, not the night before.
  • Do not store household trash, or anything that smells like food, in vehicles, on porches or decks.
  • Keep your grill clean.
  • Don’t put meat scraps in your compost pile.
  • Don’t leave pet food outdoors.
  • Remove bird feeders if a bear is in the area.
  • Encourage your neighbors to take similar precautions.
Remember, it is illegal to feed bears. If you see a bear, call the Virginia Wildlife Conflict Helpline at 855-571-9003.
Another concern brought to our attention is foxes in yards, and specifically foxes exhibiting mange. Mange is a condition where the animal loses a good bit of its fur and appears naked. The mangy fox has increased parasitic conditions and loses its ability to regulate its temperature. If you see a fox with severe mange, call Animal Control at (703) 691-2131. The Fairfax County Wildlife Diseases link can assist you in determining if an animal has mange or a disease. Also included is an article about keeping foxes out of your yard and tips from The Humane Society

Crime Report

Fox Mill Estates remains a very safe community to live in. We remind you to keep your vehicles locked as many reports in the local area show vehicles entered and ransacked because they are unlocked. Some of these have resulted in garage door openers being used to enter residences. Remain safe and vigilant and report any issues immediately.  On recent patrols, we found 1, 17 and 8 garage doors open between 1am and 4 am. Even though this is a very small percentage of homes here in Fox Mill, it represents an easy opportunity for criminals to take advantage of you, our homeowners.  Your home is your largest investment, so locking doors and windows is the easiest way to protect that investment.  We have seen many more homes recently that leave the porch light or security lights on at night and we encourage those that don’t to do so. Let’s see if we can all turn a light on and “light up the night.”  If you see suspicious activity, call the Fairfax County Non-Emergency number (703) 691-2131 and report it or you may report it online (www.fairfaxcounty.gov/police) then click on make a report.  The more reports of this illegal activity, the more likely it will be stopped as the statistics and data trends emerge.

Reminder – To help keep crimes to a minimum, lock the windows and doors to your home and leave the porch light on. Lock your vehicle and store valuables out of sight. Another deterrent would be installing security lighting or low-profile security cameras. Most criminals/thieves will shy away from areas that are well lit and easy for them to be seen. Emergencies call 911. Complaints can be called in to the non-emergency number for the Fairfax County Police (703) 691-2131. Complaints and concerns can also be filed online via the following link: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/complaints/.

Let’s be Proactive rather than Reactive to these types of situations.  “If you see something, say something.” 

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 at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/police. Complaints may be filed on the same page by clicking “File a report.”  The more reports made for any illegal activity, the more likely it will be stopped as the statistics and data trends emerge. 

Streetlight Update
Streetlight maintenance in our community is on ongoing process. If you see a streetlight out, please, send us an email to neighborhood_watch@fmeha.org or you can report it online on www.dom.com. Please make sure to have the pole numbers and the problem to report in the email form. Ex (CO220/VG27). If the pole doesn’t have a number, please indicate the closest address to the pole in question.

Volunteers Needed: If you would like to volunteer to help our neighborhood watch program be even better, please email your name and phone number to neighborhood_watch@fmeha.org and we will contact you about how you can help. Thank you and we wish you a safe winter season ahead.
