LANDMARK MEWS COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION PARKING AND VEHICLE POLICY
With the holiday season upon us, we remind all residents and their guests to abide by the Landmark Mews Community Association (“LMCA”) parking policy outlined below.
It is the policy of the Landmark Mews Community Association to provide adequate visitor parking between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. daily, comply with the Fairfax County code regarding fire lanes as it applies to the interior private roads of the Community, maintain, and protect the common areas as required by the Landmark Mews governing documents, and take prudent action to safeguard the public health and safety.
Residents who fail to abide by these rules, or whose visitors do so, are subject to enforcement actions and penalties including fines, towing at the owner’s expense; and suspension of rights to use any common area including the streets.
The Property Manager is responsible for parking monitoring and recordkeeping. The Covenants Committee is responsible for enforcing vehicle restrictions on or concerning homeowner property. The Board is responsible for enforcement actions including the imposition of fines and towing. The Board herein delegates authorization for towing to the President, upon recommendation of the Property Manager. Residents are responsible for keeping their vehicles licensed, registered, and in good working order, and for following the rules governing vehicles and parking, as well as the Declaration of Covenants, Architectural Guidelines, and any other authorities promulgated by the Board.
Common area parking spaces are marked “Visitor” and are reserved for visitors. Residents may park in the visitor parking spaces only between 8 p.m. and 10 a.m.; however, a resident may park in the visitor parking area during designated visitor hours with a note on the dashboard of their vehicle indicating the reason (e.g., garage/driveway unavailable). Please note, Residents should exercise constraint and use this parking area for a limited time, it is not for prolong usage or intended to be used as a permanent parking location for Resident owned vehicles.
Please note: Visitors who park in the lot must post a note on the dashboard of their vehicle identifying the resident and address that they are visiting. Visitors who stay longer than 10 consecutive days must abide by the same parking restrictions as residents (see above).
Thank you for assisting LMCA to provide adequate parking for all resident visitors and for adhering to the LMCA Parking and Vehicle Policy.
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 vehicle can transfer the static cling parking decal and send an email to [email protected] 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 request a new parking decal on the website.
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.
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.
CMC is Pleased to Offer Direct Payment Service to Homeowners
Although many of you are familiar with direct debit payments, below is a summary of a few of the most frequent questions:
What is direct debit payment?
Direct debit payment is a convenient, efficient, electronic payment alternative to paper checks. When you use direct payment, you authorize CMC, on behalf of the Association, to electronically collect your assessments from your personal checking/savings account.
Instead of writing a check every month, your bank will automatically make the payment to the Association’s account on the third (3rd) business day of the month.
Why use direct debit payment?
You will save time preparing payments, save money on postage and eliminate the charge of a late payment. You will never forget to make your assessment payment because it is done automatically.
The Association benefits because its operating account receives interest on funds daily. For more information, visit the TownSQ webpage. https://app.townsq.io/login
