Someone left their mailbox open in the group of mailboxes to the left just as you drive into Harpers Square Court. There is mail in the box that is visible. If you have a mailbox in this grouping, please check your box.
Please take your trash and recycle bins back to your house from the curb by Saturday morning after the Friday pickup. Don’t let them sit at the curb for days. Your neighbors do not like to look at them. If you are not going to be home, please make arrangements with someone else to move them for you.
Also, we do not have reserved parking spots, so it is not acceptable to block a spot with an item to reserve it. If you need a specific spot for a few days for some reason (elderly person visiting, home contractor work), please let a member of the board know and we can work something out with your neighbors.
Around 4:45 AM this morning you might have been awakened by the helicopter over our neighborhood or seen the Fairfax County police surveiling our cluster. Someone attempted to break into an occupied single family home behind us on Wilder Pointe Lane around 4 AM. The police were searching for the suspect. We do not have any additional information or know if the suspect was caught. Please be diligent about locking your house doors and windows and well as your vehicles. And call 911 immediately if you see anyone suspicious in the neighborhood day or night.
A fluffy grey rabbit was found by one of our homeowners in a front yard on Barton Hill Court. The bunny is obviously domesticated. The bunny has been taken to the Fairfax County Animal Shelter where it has been placed on a 6-day hold to see if it is claimed by its owner. The 6 days runs out tomorrow, July 6. So if you are missing a bunny, please call the shelter immediately. If the bunny is not claimed, it will be put up for adoption. The shelter has informed us that it will most likely be adopted immediately because it is very cute and domesticated.
If you have a regular newspaper delivery every day, the Washington Posts were left on the side walk at the main entrance to the cluster this morning. Please go get yours. They will be recycled if they any are left after 8 pm tonight.
Reston Association has given HSCA residents permission to park overnight in the lots associated with the tennis courts and soccer field at the bottom of Barton Hill Road with a few caveats:
- Only overnight parking is permitted, you can’t leave a vehicle there all day.
- You can’t park in the soccer side lot until after the last soccer practice/game of the day.
We have also notified the residents of the single family homes on Barton Hill Road and Wilder Point Lane that we will be parking on the roads over the next two days. But please don’t block any driveways or impair vision at intersections.
It looks like the weather is going to cooperate, so the parking lot sealing and painting will start tomorrow morning. All vehicles need to be removed from the parking lots by 7:00 AM tomorrow morning and will not be permitted to park in our lots until Wednesday evening. No exceptions. Any vehicles left in the lots after 7 AM tomorrow morning will be towed to Barton Hill Road at the owners expense.
