The meeting will be at the Cascades Library, conference room B. The meeting is scheduled from 7pm through 9pm.

Petition for Pedestrian-frieldly Measures at Augusta and Mountain Laurel

Danielle, in addition to her much appreciated work improving our tot lot, is heading up a petition to get Loudoun County and VDOT to make it possible for us to safely cross Augustra Drive near the pool house. (Westerley is on both sides of Augusta.) Part of the process of getting the county and state to look into it is to present them a petition from the people living nearby—us.

We'd appreciate it if you'd review and respond to the petition.

(The street is known as Mountain Laurel Terrace on the east side of Augusta and Vermont Maple Terrace on the west side.)

Sending Written Statements for Thursday's Parking Meeting

If you are a resident or owner and are unable to make Thursday's meeting, you may send a short written statement to be read at the meeting. Please keep statements short; several paragraphs at most. If time requires, we reserve the right to only read aloud part of the statement.

Please send statements to the board via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Include if you'd like your name to be read and, if so, the pronunciation of your name.

Special Meeting on Parking

The Board is holding a special meeting on parking. Owners and residents are invited to attend and offer their suggestions.

The purpose of this meeting is to first determine which problems we'd like to (and can) solve with a new parking policy and then, once we've agreed on our goals, write down requirements specific enough to send to the lawyers so they can actually draft a policy resolution.

When?7pm on Thursday, September 11, 2014
Where?Pool House, or nearby

Agenda

  1. Quick decision—who is taking minutes? (Presumably the secretary.)
  2. Quick decision—meeting end time: do we adjourn at 8pm no matter what, or will we allow it to go longer? (Decide this at the meeting, but /before/ we start arguing).
  3. Residents open forum (limited to topics germane to the meeting, and of a limited length depending on how late we've decided to go).
  4. Identify goals of/problems we're solving with a new policy.
  5. Decide if we're doing any of the major changes: assigned parking, parking passes, etc.
  6. Ideas to achieve each goal
  7. Write something up to send to legal or alternatively select someone to write that up. Decide if it should be sent ASAP or presented at the next board meeting for approval.
