Driving, BrightView and Memorial Day
- On May 29, 2022
A few items of information for the community:
Safety Driving Tips
While driving in the neighborhood, please be mindful and obey the speed limits, pedestrians, and stop signs posted throughout the community. Many residents still, report instances of drivers not obeying the posted traffic signs and other infractions such as vehicles parked in the fire lanes or alongside curbs. Residents are reminded, parking in a fire lane or in other prohibited no parking areas in the Landmark Mews community violates Fairfax County ordinance and vehicles are subject to towing without notice.
It is critical to remember, as summer approaches and school aged children are outside, please use caution while driving and keep a sharp look out for children throughout the neighborhood streets.
- Drive slowly. By driving at or under the reduced speed limits, you can reduce or prevent risks of a severe accident.
- Exercise caution at intersections and turns. Look in all directions for potential hazards and children playing.
- Stop at all posted stop signs.
- Always give pedestrians the right of way.
- Always use caution when driving in the neighborhood.
- Observe the No Parking areas (yellow curbs) and Visitor Parking guidelines.
- Please obtain a LMCA parking decal for your permanent vehicles.
- If service vehicles require curbside parking adjacent to a residence during any type of service for a prolonged period, please ensure traffic cones are set up adjacent to the service vehicle as a precautionary measure.
Resident Parking Decals
To facilitate confirming which vehicles belong to residents and which do not, in 2009 the LMCA Board adopted a vehicle decal policy for all LMCA residents’ vehicles. Maria Santos, LMCA Secretary, maintains a list of residents’ decals matched to their vehicles. Information on the parking policy and procedures to request a parking decal can be found on the LMCA website.
Residents who dispose of a vehicle and acquire a new one can transfer the static cling parking decal and send an email to Maria with the new vehicle information – make, model, color, and license plate (state and #). If you forget to transfer the decal or need a new one, please email Maria with the updated vehicle information.
Over the past few months, we have noticed several resident vehicles without decals. The vehicle decal program is a requirement for all LMCA residents, and the policy will be strictly enforced. Additional information on decals can be addressed to Maria Santos at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brightview Landscaping Service
Brightview continue to be on site during the month of May performing various lawn servicing activities (e.g., inspecting and repairing the irrigation system, performing plants replacements, accomplishing general grass clipping, debris removal, and edging as required). If you have any questions or concerns, please contact LMCA’s Property Manager, Carl Halvorson, at email@example.com.
Upcoming Planned Project – Street Repaving and Improvements
The Board approved a plan to repair the streets (e.g., repair and fill cracks/lines and light spray over pavement), as well as paint the curbs, the house numbers on the curbs, and parking lines in the visitor parking lots. The work will occur mid to late summer. More details to follow.
Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for mourning the U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. It is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formerly observed on May 30 from 1868 to 1970. Memorial Day 2022 will occur on Monday, May 30.
Landmark Mews Community Association gives thanks to all the men and women of the Armed Forces who died serving their country. Land of the free, because of the brave.
