2019 FMEHA ANNUAL MEETING
Posted on Oct 25th, 2019
Wednesday, November 20, 2019
7:30 p.m. - Monthly Board Meeting
8:00 p.m. - Annual Meeting
Fox Mill Elementary School Cafeteria
2601 Viking Drive
Herndon, VA 20171
 
In accordance with the Bylaws of the Fox Mill Estates Homes Association, you are hereby notified of the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Homeowners Association. The purpose of the Annual Meeting is to elect two (2) people to the Board of Directors to serve for a term of three (3) years.  Currently, four (4) owners have submitted candidacy statements. Other nominations can be taken from the floor at the meeting.  
 
Candidate Statements:
 
Karen A. Conroy
I am honored to be a candidate for the Fox Mill Homeowners Board of Directors. I have lived in Fox Mill since 1993 and have served as a Board or a member of various committees for many of these years. I am currently a certified, professional community association manager and actively manage multiple properties across Northern Virginia. I have a demonstrated track record in increasing property values of several communities.
I will bring these years of professional experience and work to ensure we have the best volunteer Board in the area. That this, a Board whose decisions represent homeowners’ interests, utilize the latest techniques, are consistent with Fox Mill governing documents, and increase property values.
I will collaborate with homeowners and Board members to bring energy and ideas from across the community. Some of the issues that I have heard from homeowners as needing attention include: updating the over 30-year old governing documents of the Association, investigating how we may advance security and safety while maintaining privacy by utilizing new technologies such as Next Door and Ring.com, improving facilities and infrastructure such as the tot lots, signage and gazebos, and ensuring the Board is open, accessible, available and accountable.
I will be certain to represent your vote with the highest levels of integrity, accountability and commitment.
 
Joe Kamide
I'm truly interested in one of the FMEHA board seats.  I've recently retired from a Federal Government job with the U.S. Army and am a retired Army officer spending over 23 years on active duty with the Military Police.
Previously to moving to Fox Mill Estates, I was a board member and past president of my Home Owners Association, Birchfield Woods, in the North Point area of Reston.
I've lived in Fox Mill Estates with my wife, Jan, since 2003 and I believe I have a lot to offer to the community.  We have great neighbors on Magna Carta Road who, for the most part, work hard to keep up homes and property.  However, there is much here and in the rest of FME community that can be done to improve the curb appeal of some properties.  I am completely retired and have the time and energy to make whatever contributions that are needed
 
 
Marshall Nayer
My name is Marshall Nayer and I’ve lived on Framingham Court for almost 6 years.  My wife, Allison; two boys, Max (9) and Wes (4); and our dog Nikki have loved living in Fox Mill Estates since moving day.  I am the Senior Manager of Meetings at the American Society of Hematology, a professional association located in Washington, DC focused on serving clinicians and scientists around the world who work to conquer blood diseases.  In this role (and similar previous positions within the field), I’ve cultivated years of project management, budget development, and team-based collaboration experience – all of which will serve me well in a position on the Fox Mill Estates board.  In my spare time, I thrive in navigating our family’s busy weekends, which consist of kids’ sports (baseball, soccer, basketball, and ice hockey), social gatherings throughout the neighborhood and local area, and the occasional round of golf.  Fox Mill has meant a great deal to my family and I since moving here, especially the key life milestones: purchasing our first single family home, welcoming Wes, and let’s not forget the most important of all – honing yard work skills!  I look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with and serve alongside the other members of our community.
 
Nicole Roethel
My name is Nicole Roethel and my husband and I are coming up on our 2 year anniversary of moving into this great neighborhood.  We joke that we definitely bought the neighborhood and not the house because of the warm and welcoming neighbors we have.  We've noticed it's definitely a family affair here in Fox Mill with 3 siblings living within 5 houses of ours and their parents’ right up the street!  I'm interested in joining the board, as I was previously on my board at my condo complex and enjoyed helping to make the community a better place for all that live there.  I have a background in interior design/space planning as well as facilities so I take notice if things appear in need of repair or improvement and act upon these observations, not simply note them.  I look forward to joining the board helping bring improvements and creating an even more collaborative and social environment for the entire community.

KETTERING TRAIL BRIDGE REBUILT BY GIRL SCOUT TROOP #2507
Posted on Mar 18th, 2018
                     
             
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.
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.

Neighborhood Watch
Crime Report

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. However, neighboring jurisdictions are seeing a lot more vehicle break-ins around schools, soccer fields, etc. Wherever a lot of cars are located together seems to be where they are concentrating. They are looking for purses, wallets, GPS, phones, etc. -  anything quick to grab. Take precautions if you are out to place your valuables out of sight or in the trunk. Lock your doors on both home and vehicles, placing valuables out of sight in your vehicle (including GPS, charging cables, phones, etc.) and keeping the porch and motion lights on at night will deter crime. 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 0, 7 and 4 open garages in the middle of the night. We remind you to keep your doors closed and locked, including your vehicles to 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.” 

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.
