WCA Owner/Tenant Contact Update Form

(click here)

Maintaining current contact information helps the board and its committees reach owners and tenants with important board announcements as well as during emergency events such as a water/gas main break or to report storm damage to vehicles or other property.  Each owner and paying tenant should complete a separate form.  Non-resident owners should enter their address at the end of the form.  Note: You do NOT need to have a Google account in order to update and submit the form.

Hunter Mill District News, August 5, 2020

Aug. 5, 2020

Dear Neighbors,

While our area ended up with little impact from Tropical Storm Isaias, many of our neighboring jurisdictions and states were not as fortunate. Isaias was a really good reminder that we need to be prepared for the next storm. Fairfax County has several ways for you to stay informed about storms and other emergencies that may impact us and our families. I encourage you to sign up and subscribe today, if you haven't already.
  • Sign up for Fairfax Alerts to get text messages and/or emails for updates on weather, traffic, public safety and several other topics including Elections.
  • Follow the county's Office of Emergency Management on Twitter @ReadyFairfax
  • Subscribe to the Fairfax County Emergency Blog
  • For road closure information, subscribe to the Fairfax County Police Department's news blog or follow on Twitter @FairfaxCountyPD
As we did with Isaias (and ongoing through the pandemic), my staff and I will keep you informed with updates that affect Hunter Mill District on Twitter and Facebook.
Also, election season will soon be upon us – absentee voting begins on Sept. 18 and the Board of Supervisors recently approved 14 in-person satellite voting locations, which will open on Oct. 14 (note that one of the satellite locations is right here at the North County Governmental Center!). Watch this newsletter for what you need to know about voting, including today's issue with a summary of the four bond referendums that will be on the ballot.

November Election Update
In the Nov. 3 general election, Fairfax County voters will be asked to vote yes or no on four separate bond referendum questions for libraries, parks, transportation and health and human services.
