Annual Exterior Inspection Completed
Water’s Edge HOA conducted the annual community-wide property exterior inspection in May, with violations sent via US Mail and updated to the owner's SCS account.  The inspection is designed to ensure that we all maintain our homes in accordance to all Architectural Regulations and HOA Covenants, and more importantly, to ensure all our property values are protected. 
 
      
If any violations are noted on a property, photo documentation is recorded, a report is created and the homeowner is sent (in writing) a listing of all violations which need to be corrected. 
 
If you received a violation notice, homeowners have 30 days to correct noted violations. If a homeowner needs an extension to arrange for bids and the work to be completed, owners may request a one-time 30-day extension. An extension must be requested through Anastasia Demos, our Community Manager, at SCS.
 
In order for any homeowner’s violation to be cleared and removed from their record, the owner must complete and return to SCS the Notification of Violation Correction form that is included with the violation letter, along with documentation showing the violation has been corrected. 
 
If you have multiple violations, you need to provide documentation for each violation corrected such photos of the corrected area, the contractor’s invoice (not just an estimate), receipts, etc., that may help show the corrected violation.
 
Failure to return to the abatement form or providing proper documentation may result in you receiving a hearing a letter, resulting in an additional expense to the homeowner.
 
Questions should be directed to Anastasia or the Water's Edge ARC.
 
We thank all owners that quickly correct
any and all violations.

Good Neighbor Parking...
Can You Park in your Driveway?
We ask all residents to please be a good neighbor and fully utilize ALL of their private parking spaces, including your garage and driveway BEFORE parking your any vehicle in our limited number of guest parking spots.  This way we always have enough spots for overflow and our guests.
 
We thank you for your cooperation.

REMINDER to Townhouse Residents...
Fire Pits & Chimeneas are Illegal
For townhome residents in Fairfax County, using ANY type of portable outdoor fireplaces, including fire pits, chimeneas or other forms of solid-fuel portable fire places are illegal per Section 307.4.3 of the Fairfax County Fire Prevention Code.
 
 
This law was created to reduce risk of house fires, property damage, occupant displacement, and personal injury or death from the operation or storage of portable outdoor fireplaces in or around townhouse structures. Potential fire risks associated with misuse of portable outdoor fireplaces is high. A popping ember, an unattended fire pit or improper disposal of leftover ashes can result in accidental ignition of a deck, patio, furniture, or vegetation that could start a fire that burns not just your townhouse, but several of your neighbor’s townhomes.
 
For violators, Fairfax County can assess a fine up to $2,500 and up to 12 months in jail, or both for each violation.
 
This law does not apply to single-family homes, but single-family homeowners are reminded to use any fire source safely and responsibly and always have a fire extinguisher nearby.

Please Break Down Boxes for Recycling
Please do not place large boxes that are not broken down and flattened next to your recycling bin for pick-up.  Please break them down flat and place them in your recycling bin.  If you have more boxes than can fit into your recycling tote, please flatten all of them for easier handling by our hard-working trash  collectors.

Water's Edge News
ARC Guidelines Updated
Section 32 - Roofs and Shingles
The ARC Regulations (section 32) have been revised and reposted to the HOA website.
 
The newly added language is highlighted in red:
 
32.   Roofs and Shingles    
Replacement of roof shingles requires an application to the ARC, even if the color, style, size, and material are an exact duplicate of the original roofing material.  Only full roofing material replacement is allowed, i.e., no partial replacement will be approved.  Emergency replacement of single or several shingles or a small area is permitted that best matches the existing shingles upon approval by the ARC.    All homes and structures within the community shall only use roofing materials approved by the ARC.
 
The new ARC Guidelines are available on the Committees - Architectural Review - ARC page - ARC Regulations & Application Form section.

Trash & Recycling Update
Missed Collection??
Due to the ongoing shortage of trash and recycling truck drivers and pick-up helpers, missed or delayed collections are becoming common across NOVA. 
 
If American Disposal misses a pick-up, please leave your trash and/or recycling tote curbside for an additional 24 hours. Usually, American will reschedule any missed collection for the following day.
 
Additionally, since trash and recycling may be curbside for  longer periods it's critical that ALL trash, bags, boxes, etc. are securely in a trash or recycling wheeled tote, to avoid being susceptible to wind and being scatters around the community and onto your neighbor's property.
Thank you for your cooperation.
