Fox Mill Estates Homes Association A residential community in Oak Hill, Virginia.
(2)

Fox Mill Estates consists of 1,144 single-family colonial, traditional, and contempory homes built between 1972 and 1985 on lots ranging from ¼ acre to ½ acre. Although the site was originally farmland that was cleared for construction, the residents have planted so many trees that in the spring and autumn the gardens in front of the houses blaze with color. The community is located in western Fairfax County near the town of Herndon, Virginia and the community of Reston, Virginia. It is bordered by Lawyers Road, Reston Parkway, West Ox Road, Fairfax County Parkway, and Fox Mill Road. This location provides quick access to the high-technology Dulles corridor and all it offers. View street map of Fox Mill Estates Fox Mill Estates is strategically positioned for a commute into Washington, DC, have great schools, are conveniently located to many restaurants and shops, and have numerous places of worship. Fox Mill Estates boasts two swim-and-tennis clubs (Fox Mill Swim and Tennis Club & Pinecrest Swim & Tennis Club), several "tot lots," gazebos, a pond, creeks, and great neighbors. It includes 57 acres of common land. The inhabitants of Fox Mill Estates are known to take their civic duties seriously and turnout is high among voters even in off-year elections. Because the neighborhood is so pleasant, with a pond and a creek as well as several groves of trees in the common areas, families trading up from one house to another often choose to stay in Fox Mill. And yes, some residents still see an occasional fox in the woods, as well as woodchuck, rabbits, and even deer.

Pick Up After Your Pet, Please!

Cleaning up after your pet is the neighborly thing to do and a sign of responsible pet ownership. It is also the law in Fairfax County. There are dog-waste stations within Fox Mill Estates.

Did you know that pet waste left on the ground is a potential health problem? Here’s what the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District has to say:

“Pet waste left on the grass or in the woods makes its way to storm drains every time it rains. Storm drains lead to lakes or streams that ultimately lead to the Occoquan Reservoir and the Potomac Rivers, our drinking water supply. Pet waste may carry disease-causing organisms, which make water unsafe for swimming and more costly to treat for drinking.”

So, please, for the benefit of all, “Scoop it up and bag it!”

Trash and Recycling Containers.

Two trash removal major companies serve our community. However, the companies operate on different schedules. As a result, trash containers are visible curbside almost continuously. Nevertheless, please observe the following guidelines. Trash and recycling containers should be put on the curb the evening before the pickup day. Trash and recycling containers should be put back out of view no later than the evening of the pickup day.

If you are selling your home in Fox Mill Estates, check the ACC Application Archives at www.fmeha-acc.org to make sure there is a record of approval on file for each improvement. This will help avoid any problems when you order a resale packet from the property management company. If an improvement has no record of approval - e.g. you have a deck, but it’s not on file - then submit an ACC application for after-the-fact or as-built approval.

It's a good idea to check your status even if you aren't selling right now.

04/04/2018

ACC inspections start this week. Common things to check include:

Siding clean and free of dirt, mold or algae.
Trailers and watercraft kept out of sight.
The paint on wood trim, entrance doors, and garage doors in good condition with no visible signs of peeling.
Fence posts and slats and deck boards firmly secured.
The yard and driveway free of debris.
House numbers securely attached to house and visible from street.
Portable basketball equipment located on your own property and not in the public street or the grassy area between the street and sidewalk.

04/03/2018

New for 2018. When the FMEHA ACC sends out violation notices, we rely primarily on voluntary compliance to correct the issues. Most of the time this works. However, sometimes it does not.

There were over 100 violations from 2017 that were not corrected. Homeowners should be aware that the FMEHA might, when a situation warrants it, seek legal action to compel compliance. Should the FMEHA prevail in court, the FMEHA is entitled to seek to
recover its legal expenses from the homeowner.

If you do receive a violation notice, please treat it seriously and make any necessary repairs promptly.

If you want to check your home's status the Application Archives are online at fmeha-acc.org.

03/30/2018

Mostly sunny and in the low 60's this weekend. Good time to get a jump on exterior improvements and clean-up. The FMEHA ACC inspections start this April. ;) Go Fox Mill!

Halloween Safety: “Trick or Treat” - Fairfax County, Virginia

Happy Halloween! As you all celebrate and send kids out into the neighborhood, please have a great time and enjoy the season. Eat lots of candy!

At the same time, please remember to take an extra level of precaution for safety and security. Unfortunately, we know this is one of the most dangerous nights of the year for pedestrians. Please drive carefully! Light your kids up with reflectors. And, watch for dangerous vehicles. Do not hesitate to write down and report the make and model and license plate number if you see unsafe activity.

Also, unfortunately, we have seen in the past that people have used this night as a time to cause mischief and worse. Please be sure to lock your homes and cars. Remove valuables from your vehicles. And, watch for any suspicious characters you see roaming about. It can be hard to discern who is who in the dark, but we all need to watch out for each other and be a little extra vigilant.

Please enjoy the night safely and have a spooky good time!

Ghosts, goblins, and ghouls will soon be coming out all over the area. Halloween is a festive occasion that we need to celebrate safely.

Hunter Mill District

Here's your chance to input on some changes the County is considering on Zoning...

Tonight come to an open house to learn how these proposed changes may affect you and your neighborhood. The event will take place at the Herrity Building, Room 106/107, 12055 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, from 7:00-9:00 PM.

This year, some of the first priority zoning amendments include:

• Short-term rentals: These are properties that are rented less than 30 days on websites like Airbnb, Flipkey, Homeaway, VRBO and many others. We are looking at changes that regulate where these rentals would be allowed, what kinds of properties could be rented and how often they could be rented out. You can take a short survey to provide input that will help to shape the proposed rules.
• Rear Yard Coverage: It is increasingly common for residents to add hardscaping, like patios, to their yards, but current zoning rules make it difficult for homeowners with small backyards to do so. We are proposing changes to give homeowners living in single family detached homes more flexibility to add these features.
• Restaurants: We are considering changes to give fast casual restaurants, like Panera, Chipotle, or Pei Wei, more flexibility to open in commercial areas.
• Signs: Because of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling, we must rewrite our sign rules to make sure they are “content neutral.” Our current ordinance regulates or classifies certain sign types based, in whole or in part, on the message on them.
• Agricultural Districts and Uses: We are proposing to update our zoning rules to accommodate increasing interest in establishing community gardens and opportunities for urban agriculture and to address agritourism activities on farms such as harvest-your-own activities, farm festivals and other special events.
• Continuing Care Communities: The proposed changes are to consider creating a new use or zoning district to accommodate “full spectrum” care and accomodations, such as memory care or assisted living facilities.

Public input is key to shaping proposed zoning amendments that ultimately must be approved by the Board of Supervisors. Residents are encouraged to offer their thoughts early in the process, and the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors also hold public hearings on proposed amendments. Hope you're able to attend!

General information

The Story of Fox’s Mills. In October of 1786, Amos Fox, age 47, was granted by the Court of Fairfax County, one acre of land on which to build a mill on Difficult Run. This is at the present intersection of Fox Mill Road and Waples Mill Road. His parents, George and Mary Fox, had come to Virginia from New Jersey. Amos decided to build a grist mill for grinding grain into flour. Three of his sons, Morris, Isaac and Gabriel inherited the milling business. By 1840, there were three mills housed together in one large three-story building. The mills were woolen, grist and flour. Gabriel Fox ran the mills himself and was considered to be a wealthy man. Around 1840, Gabriel married a woman from Alexandria and moved her out to the country. There was no school for the children of the area to attend, so Mrs. Fox had a one-room, log school house erected and it was referred to as “The school at Fox’s Mills.” The school was located on Waples Mill Road just a mile from present day Route 50. Both Fox Mill Road and Fox Mill Estates are named in the memory of the three mills belonging to the Fox Family. This history was researched by Linda H. Sittig, who at the time of the report, was a reading specialist at Fox Mill Elementary School. Ever since Linda was a teenager, she has had a keen interest in history. She has gone on to a career of writing historical fiction. Linda is also an active blogger.
