Note: Town of Leesburg Announcement

Yard Waste Collection Begins Monday, March 30, 2020 (view message online)

Leesburg residents will have yard waste collected every Monday through December.

Leesburg, VA (March 27, 2020) – Beginning Monday, March 30, 2020, Patriot Disposal Services will begin to collect yard waste for those living within the corporate limits of the Town of Leesburg, every Monday.

Collection will begin a week early due to the high volume of yard waste. Please note, this service could be suspended, if needed, due to staffing of our haulers and Coronavirus updates. People should keep an eye on social media and the Town’s website, leesburgva.gov, in case we would have to suspend this service. Until then, a maximum of 10 bags (or 10 properly marked trash cans) will be picked up at each residents home per week. No exceptions.

Yard waste is limited to grass clippings, leaves, weeds and small twigs and must be placed at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on the day of collection, in biodegradable paper bags or in cans clearly marked as yard waste. The Town of Leesburg will provide residents with free “Yard Waste” stickers for this purpose. Residents can request stickers by calling 703-771-2790 or emailing [email protected].

Residents are being asked to mulch their grass clippings into their yards to minimize the yard waste volume. The following additional restrictions apply to yard waste:

  • No plastic bags or boxes.
  • Do not mix yard waste with trash or recycling.
  • No dirt, mulch, root balls, rocks or sod.

For more information, please visit the Town of Leesburg website at leesburgva.gov/yardwaste.

Spring Architectural Annual Inspections:

Please take note that Sequoia Management will begin the Annual Architectural Inspections in early April 2020. Please make sure to address any exterior items that may need attention in order to avoid receiving a violation notice.  Some common items we look for are posted below. Please note this list is not all inclusive and additional items may be cited if they are not in compliance with the Communities Architectural Standards.

Lawn Maintenance (See attached lawn maintenance tips): Overgrown lawns, weeds in lawns and landscape beds, dead or dying bushes, trees, and plants.

Paint: Chipping, peeling, bubbling or fading of paint on trim, shutters and front doors.

Miscellaneous Items: Public view storage of trash cans, recycling bins and miscellaneous items such as newspapers, garden tools, children’s toys, etc.

Repairs: Items in need of repair such as removal of mold/dirt from roof; rotted wood trim; broken fences, gates or boards; missing or damaged shutters; etc.

Maintenance: Items in need of maintenance such as yard work, deck and fence stain, cleaning of steps, fences, mailboxes etc.

If you are needing guidance on how to keep your lawn maintained, you may also contact the Loudoun County Garden Master at (703) 771-5150. They will be able to answer any questions you may have and provide suggestions to keep your property looking beautiful!

Spring Projects –Get Your Architectural Applications In:

As a friendly reminder, any exterior modifications made to your home or lot require approval from the Architectural Review Board before construction or installation. This includes decks, patios, fences, and large recreational play equipment (such as swing sets and trampolines). If you have already constructed or installed one of these items and did not receive approval, you must still submit an architectural application to the HOA for approval. Failure to do so will likely result in complications when you choose to sell your property. Please reference the Architectural Design Standards and Maintenance Standards for more information on lot maintenance and the application process.

Attention A&B Homeowners:

Please be reminded that the new parking policy rules are effective beginning Monday, August 20, 2018. The policies affect all parking in unmarked/open spaces by residents and their guests.

Please see the Parking Rules – Amendment Summary below:

  • Each townhome in Section A has received 2 hang tags. These hang tags only need to be used when a resident or visitor is parked in an unmarked (not numbered) parking space between 12:00 AM (midnight) – 6:00 AM.
  • Any vehicle parked in an unmarked (not numbered) parking space between 12:00 AM (midnight) – 6:00 AM must display a hang tag on the rear-view mirror. The hang tag must be visible and verifiable by looking through the front windshield.
  • Any vehicle parked in an unmarked (not numbered) parking space without a verifiable hang tag is subject to towing, without further notice, 7 days per week.
  • Both residents and visitors of residents are required to abide by these parking rules.
  • Having a hang tag does not guarantee you a parking space, but it does authorize that vehicle to park within the townhome section if the tag is displayed correctly.
  • Unmarked (not numbered) parking spaces are available on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Hang tags are non-transferable and not meant to be sold, rented, transferred or shared with neighbors.
  • Replacement hang tags cost $10 each. Please contact Sequoia Management immediately if your hang tag is lost or stolen, as the status of the tag and serial number correlated with your property must be updated.
  • The Board of Directors recommends locking all vehicles for general safety as well as to prevent theft of hang tags.
    Vehicles blocking or impeding pedestrian access to sidewalks is a violation of the Loudoun County public safety rules.
  • The regulations that exist for residents to acquire and use numbered spaces remains the same, and are listed in the Resolution. Vehicles parked in numbered spots with owner permission do not require hang tags.
  • Please note, that while the new parking policy goes into effect today, the Board of Directors and Management have established a 30-day grace period of enforcement of these regulations. During the grace period warning stickers will be placed on vehicles in violation of policies.

Towing of vehicles in violation of policies are effective beginning Tuesday, September 18, 2018.

If you did not receive your hang tags or have any questions regarding the new policies, please contact Shannon Cook at Sequoia Management or 703-803-9641.
