Welcome to The Meadows' Website!


On behalf of The Meadows' Board of Directors, welcome to our website.  Please feel free to navigate through our many menus on our public domain.


Welcome To Our New Property Manager

Congratulations to Donna Cogswell, who this month (March 2021), became The Meadows’ new Property Manager. Donna not only has been serving as The Meadows’ Assistant Property Manager over the past several years, but also was a resident of our Community years ago. She says “The Meadows has a special place in my heart because this had been my home at one time”. She has demonstrated this on numerous occasions through the care she has shown to residents and in working to improve the appearance of The Meadows. Donna’s positive enthusiasm and hard work serves our Community well.


IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR
BOARD AND ASSOCIATION MEETINGS UNDER COVID-19

Due to the government-mandated COVID-19 safety protocols, which include restricted occupancy for our Clubhouse, meetings of the Association and Board of Directors will be switching to an online platform (Zoom), effective immediately

PLEASE NOTE: To access the link you will need to have a user name and log in password for The Meadows website. This can takeup to 72 hours to generate, so please go to www.mymeadows.net to register for a user name and password for this site as soon as possible, if you do not already have one.

Even on Zoom, co-owners will have the opportunity to speak to the Board as usual during the Guest Forum portion of the agenda. We hope you will join us and appreciate your patience as we work through this new (to us) technology and adapt to ever changing “new norms”.


The President's Corner (May 2021)

It is with relief and pleasure that I can announce that our Meadows office is, once again, fully staffed. Donna Cogswell was promoted from Assistant Property Manager to Property Manager effective March 1. Amini Bonane was hired to fill the position of Office Clerical Assistant to the Property Manager commencing April 19.

Donna, as many of you know, has worked as the Assistant Property Manager at The Meadows for a number of years, during which time she has gotten to know many of the residents here. Her knowledge and experience, coupled with her concern for our Community and its residents, has made her an asset to us all.

Amini Bonane comes to us with excellent qualifications. She looks forward to learning certain aspects of working in a Property Management office and also in assisting the residents with their many needs which fall under her job responsibilities. We welcome and congratulate both Donna and Amini in their new positions!

Donna will be resuming inspections of the outside of our homes and grounds. Please refer to your Rules and Regulations to ensure you are in compliance. Many have items stored under your steps. You must remove them. No items are to be stored there. Make sure you are not using your balconies and patios as storage areas. We all have storage space in the trash bins that were once used for our trash containers.

Flower beds continue to be of concern. Everyone received a flyer recently giving you until April 10 to notify The Meadows office if you desired to maintain your flower beds, otherwise, the landscape company will be eliminating the beds. There are far too many neglected flower beds, resulting in an unsightly appearance of our community. Residents are required to maintain, weed, mulch, etc. their flower beds once creating them. It is not the responsibility of Advantage, our landscape company, to do so. Once again, I urge you to contact The Meadows office immediately if you wish to keep your flower beds and maintain them, otherwise they may be eliminated. Also, NO VEGETABLES are allowed to be planted outside.

It seems as though many residents are under the erroneous impression that the expense of hauling away bulk items is an expense which is supposed to be included in our condo dues. This is NOT correct! Any bulk item requiring removal, is the resident’s own responsibility, for not only making the arrangements for its removal, but also for the cost of having it removed. Residents may contact Haul Share (our current bulk company) by three means, preferred methods are: 1. Website: www.haulshare.com 2. Email: [email protected] or for individuals not having access to computers, 3. call 703-921-4285. You may also contact any other company you prefer, to make arrangements for picking up your bulk items, but these items cannot be placed outside PRIOR to Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. for Thursday morning early removal. Bulk items must be kept in one’s own home until then. If other arrangements are made for pick up other than Thursday mornings, do not place the items outside until the time of pickup. It is not fair to residents who follow the rules to have to pay for all the residents who are disregarding the rules and whose violations are drastically increasing our monthly condo dues every year as a result of their ignoring the Meadows Rules and Regulations. Residents are tired of seeing piles of bulk items sitting for days outside prior to removal. This has become an eyesore which can no longer be tolerated. PLEASE REPORT IN WRITING TO THE MEADOWS OFFICE THE ADDRESS OF ANYONE SEEN IN VIOLATION OF THIS RULE. YOUR NAME WILL REMAIN CONFIDENTIAL.

There will be no Spring yard sale nor will there be a temporary dumpster on-site this spring, as in the past. All social functions are cancelled for 2021 due to Covid-19.

It will take every resident’s cooperation to not only improve the appearance of our community but also to prevent the spiking of our condo dues. Let’s all work together to make this a community we can be proud of!
