PARKING ON VDOT ROADS
Ashburn Village Blvd (and all our roads serving single family homes) are VDOT controlled. AVCA does not have jurisdiction to enforce parking. Commercial trucks and/or trailers are not permitted to be parked on these streets. If you see one, you may call the Sheriff's non-emergency number 703-777-1021 to report the parking violation and an officer will ticket the vehicle. Or report online HERE.
Fishing Line Recycling
Announcing Fishing Line Recycling Containers
AVCA has installed monofilament fishing line recycling containers at our lakes. Please use them to properly dispose of used fishing line.
When disposed of improperly, monofilament can be hazardous to marine life, scuba divers and even boat propellers. Even when put in the trash, monofilament can end up harming wildlife at landfills. When possible it is best to recycle used fishing line.
Want to go Native?
May 10th at 7PM at the Lakes Community Center
Internationally recognized native landscaping expert and host of The Native Plant Podcast, John Magee, is coming to Ashburn Village to introduce you to a trend that is taking our nation by storm – using native plants in your landscape! Saves money. Better for your health. Better for the environment.
AVCA has been associated with John for several years now. We were fortunate to be one of the early movers in the “going native” movement when he installed our Pollinator Gardens at Ashburn, Tippecanoe and Beech Lake in 2017.
