Electric car charging rules reminder

Last August, the WSHA Board clarified that it will approve electric vehicle charging under the following conditions:

  1. When the Cord

a. Can be installed from the resident's property to the resident’s assigned parking spot entirely over WSHA common property. Installations will not be approved that cross other residents’ property.

b. Can be buried under all sidewalls as installed by a licensed and bonded contractor

c. Can be stored at or below Grade, using a solution such as the following the Wiremold/Legrand Outdoor Ground Box, or a similar inground storage solution

2. The approved design has been submitted and approved by architectural control be aesthetically in keeping with community standards, and not interfering with the Board ability to the common area to the community for enjoyment, safety, or maintenance.

3. The resident has agreed to all easement, removal and agreements as determined based on the advice of legal counsel.

4. All Costs to be borne by the resident

Electric vehicles charging cords are not allowed over sidewalks or other common property, because these could create legal liability on the part of the association (1b) and do not meet our architectural control standards (2).

September Board meeting moved to 21st

The September Board meeting has been moved from Tuesday the 14th to Tuesday the 21st at 7:30 PM. The WSHA calendar has been updated. More reminders will be sent with the September newsletter and through the Westmoreland Square website.

Survey crew in floodplain

Fairfax County plans to send a survey crew into the floodplain sometime during the next three weeks to assess an outfall channel near the Nantucket development, on the other side of the creek. There is no cause for concern.

Dues credit, temporary Board nomination, picnic

At the July meeting, the Board voted to credit all homeowners with one quarters’ worth of dues.  If you have paid the June bill, you will not have to pay in September.  Homeowners who have not yet paid their June installments can take the credit now and paying the September bill as usual.

The Board is seeking nominations from homeowners and residents who would like to serve the remainder of Matt Loughran’s term, until the Annual Meeting in October.  No election is required.  This is an ideal opportunity to support our community and share your expertise with your neighbors.  If you are interested, please send a short email explaining why to Cat Follin at Sequoia, cfollin@sequoiamgmt.com, with a copy to Richard Shumann.

The Annual Picnic is back!  It will be Saturday, September 18, from 4 to 7 PM, in Jesse’s Park.  Tickets will cost $5 (children three and under are free) and include fried chicken, pork BBQ, black bean burgers, hot dogs, salads and dessert.  There will be a moon bounce for the kids.  Tickets are available from Penny Eastman.  The flyer will be on the website.

The August Board meeting has been rescheduled to Thursday, August 19, at 7:30 PM, instead of Tuesday the 10th.  The Zoom link is on the website calendar and will be included in the August newsletter.
