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, December 16, 2020


Dec. 16, 2020

Dear Neighbors,

As we close out a year that has been dark for so many, I encourage you to look for the light that surrounds us during the holidays. Our faith communities, neighborhoods and homes have been lit inside and out to celebrate our diverse faiths and the beginning of a new year. It has really been a treat to see such creative and joyous use of light all around Hunter Mill District. And for those of us interested in the visible heavens, keep an eye on the sky on Dec. 21 when Jupiter and Saturn will be so close in the sky that they will appear to be one bright star. The last time this occurred during a night sky was 800 years ago, so make sure you take a few minutes to look; learn more.
These days the most important light is the one at the end of the tunnel, and we now have that with the arrival of vaccines to end this pandemic. A lot more information will be coming from the county in the upcoming weeks and you can find several sources under the COVID-19 Updates below.
This is our 75th and last newsletter for 2020. I want to thank Lisa Connors of my staff for making this newsletter happen, and to thank you for subscribing and reading it – especially about COVID-19. The next weekly newsletter will be Wednesday, Jan. 6 and we will continue to provide updates and other important information on TwitterFacebook and the Hunter Mill District webpage.
On behalf of the Hunter Mill District staff and myself, best wishes for a happy and healthy new year – we are all looking forward to 2021!
