The Board of Directors is keeping a close eye on updates from local government, county departments, the pool company, and our legal representation related to the upcoming pool season. Governor Northam has recently announced that Loudoun County will not be reopening for Phase 1 until at least May 28th. Pools that open in Phase 1 are restricted to less than 10 individuals, no tables or chairs are available for use, and individuals in the pool are limited to swimming laps.

The Board of Directors is continuing to move forward and to carefully prepare for a pool season that follows the guidance of state and local authorities. We will continue to update East Stratford residents with the latest information as it becomes available. We also recommend that homeowners continue to submit pool pass forms and review the pool rules to ensure they are ready for the pool season.

UPDATE: You can now submit your pool pass forms online, please visit eaststratfordhoa.com/poolreg to register for pool passes/stickers.

**Note if you have already submitted your application you do not need to resubmit online.**

In order to assist with practicing social distancing, the path around the lake will have signs in place that limit the walking path to ONE-WAY (clockwise). We appreciate your cooperation in walking one-way 🙂 

Please continue to practice social distancing and stay safe!

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.

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.
