Friday Updates and Information - October 2, 2020
Posted on October 2, 2020 3:30 PM by AVCA Management
Hello and Happy Friday, 
 
The Board held our September Board Meeting this past Wednesday. Thank you to our residents for dialing in. 
  • The Annual Meeting is October 15th. We have quorum and thank all our awesome homeowners for mailing in and going online to vote. 
  • We will have a November and December combined Board meeting on Dec. 8th. (virtual)
  • The Board made adjustments to the 2021 Draft Budget.
  • We discussed the Villager and whether we want to go Bi-monthly or Quarterly. We will also place it online. No decision was made.
  • We discussed Capital Expenditures that the Board and homeowners have recommended.
  • We ordered 200 trees to be placed in certain parcels of common area, per advice of the Department of Forestry. 
 
Areas for improvement that were discussed. Sample ideas:
  • Choptank Field – the workout stations around the field are very old and worn / wet swampy areas in the field.
  • Building a path around the Mills Field to walk when kids are practicing
  • Adding seating areas to courts and fields 
  • Sprucing up Fincastle Field – the Baseball field needs attention. It is being used for dogs to run around. Dogs are not allowed on the fields.
  • The Volleyball sand court needs to be refreshed and a border placed around the sand.
  • The Basketball Courts at Fincastle Field need attention.
  • The Basketball Courts at the Woods need attention.
  • Reviewing all 13 tennis courts and comparing with the Reserve Study for scheduled maintenance. 
 
We are looking at all aspects of the Village and prioritizing.

Trees
The Board discussed the Association's tree policy. The policy is very clear, moving forward there are just some questions regarding tree removal that was done in the past. If a tree is dead in a wooded area, our policy is to cut and lay it down. We are following up on complaints regarding trees located in swale areas, trees in swampy areas, trees that were cut and stacked in areas. All of this was done years ago, but it is something we are looking to clean up or be able to explain why it is the way it is. Once these areas die back for the winter, we can more easily assess the issues. Our tree company has a licensed arborist on staff. Ron, our Project and Facilities Manager, met and walked with the Department of Forestry and they made great recommendations. We have contacted the County for specific guidelines on all swale, preserve and storm drain areas. Ron will meet with the Loudoun County Arborist and the Department of Forestry again soon.
