The Boy Scouts will be placing luminaries at the entrances to Fox Mill Estates again this Christmas Eve.
If you'd like to join in the tradition to decorate in front of your home, they will be selling the candles, cups, sand, and bags in the Fox Mill Pool parking lot on Sunday, 17 Dec. from 1:00PM to 3:00PM.
The luminary kits will be $7.00 for a set of 10 [same price as the last 8 to 10 years]. The candles burn about 10 to 12 hours, and are usually set up at dusk.

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.

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.
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 email@example.com and we will contact you about how you can help. Thank you and we wish you a safe winter season ahead.
