Daffodils and Donuts Day Postponed to November 5th

We hear it's going to rain, a lot, this Sunday.  Rain is good for daffodils, but not for our spending time outside planting them.  So the Daffodils and Donuts day will be rescheduled for Sunday, November 5th, but otherwise the same plan: meet your neighbors on the plaza near the horse statue at 10:00 for coffee and donuts prior to cleaning up our common areas and planting some spring flowering bulbs. Donations of daffodils, crocus, windflowers, etc. would be appreciated.  

So mark your calendars again and join your neighbors for a bit of socializing and work to beautify the cluster.

Yard Waste Container Rule

    The Cluster has received the a letter from our refuse collection contractor, American Disposal Services, regarding an earlier announcement that yard waste would only be accepted in paper yard waste bags.  As explained in the excerpt below, this change will not take place as announced. Although plastic bags are still acceptable, ADS advises that clear plastic bags must be used for yard waste.

RE: Plastic Bags for use with Yard Waste Still Accepted in Fairfax County

Dear Valued Customer,

     We informed you recently of the County’s new rules for yard waste collection, specifically about plastic bags. The regulatory change that affects how yard waste is collected has been postponed indefinitely. Therefore, at this time there will be no change to our collection procedure and we will accept plastic bags. If anything does change later, we will notify you at that time. However, we would like to encourage the use of bio-degradable paper bags and or the use of personal containers marked for “yard debris”.

     The best alternative is to leave grass clippings on the lawn, where they will quickly biodegrade and add nutrient value to your lawn. If you choose to use plastic bags, please remember they must be clear plastic bags. We do not accept black plastic bags or bags that cannot be easily identified as yard debris material.

     We appreciate your business and look forward to continuing to provide you with the highest level of service.

Thank You,

American Disposal Services

Lake Anne Village Center Historic District

To:  Washington Plaza Cluster Members

From:  Geoff Hurwitz, President, WPCA Board

Subject:  Lake Anne Village Center Historic District

You should have received a letter from the Virginia Department of Historic Resources (DHR) Virginia's historic preservation office, regarding the nomination of Lake Anne Village, including our entire cluster, to the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register.

The DHR will conduct a public information hearing beginning at 7:00 pm in the JoAnn Rose Gallery, Reston Lake Anne Community Center.  The purpose of this hearing is both informational and to provide an opportunity for public participation including the right of stakeholders to state their support for, or objection to, listing in the registers.

The WPCA Board has determined that this listing is in the best interest of our cluster and will communicate our support for the listing.  The listing is outstanding recognition of the unique architectural significance of our homes, and may also provide assistance to our ongoing preservation activities.  Further, the Board sees no disadvantages of being listed on these Registers.  We encourage individual cluster homeowners to comment as well.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
