published: November 17th, 2021 by in Uncategorized

Dear Raspberry Falls Homeowner(s), In this third and final 2021 “seasonal message,” I wanted to share with you some of the growth and development that our beautiful neighborhood has undergone this year. My wife, Karen, and I have been homeowners since 2006 and I’ve been an elected HOA Board member and your President for the past 8 months. I can honestly say from our community entrance and each Hamlet feature to our linked common grounds and our outstanding amenities – our community has never looked better. I would like to extend a sincere thank you to my fellow Board members… Read More »

Resident Parking

published: September 7th, 2021 by in Uncategorized

Several residents have expressed a sincere concern over the inordinate number of vehicles being parked on the gravel shoulders in front of homeowner property overnight or for extended periods of time. This has become, not only an aesthetic issue but, more importantly, a real potential hazard for those walking the neighborhood streets. Since school is now in session and many children are walking to and from the school bus pick up locations, it has become a safety issue brought to our attention by many concerned parents. The vehicles parked on the surface streets have, in some instances, created a sight… Read More »

COMMUNITY ACTION REQUIRED: Route 15 Widening in Jeopardy

published: June 22nd, 2021 by in Uncategorized

The struggle never ends with Route 15 widening. Apparently the people opposed to any widening at all are also trying to get the current project to widen Route 15 to Montressor defunded. That’s right, the current Route 15 widening project to Montressor is actually in danger of being defunded thanks to a few negative comments to the Metro Transportation Planning Board, which influences NVTA funding. The project to widen from Leesburg to Montressor is mostly being paid with NVTA funds… not Loudoun funds. So, folks opposed to the project put together a campaign to get the Metro Transportation Planning Board… Read More »

Route 15

published: April 12th, 2021 by in Uncategorized

Raspberry Falls Residents, as you may be aware, there is a current plan to widen Route 15 to four lanes. This project has been many years in the making. The 30% design will go before the Loudoun Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, February 2, 2021, week for approval to move forward. It has taken over a year to get this design to the 30% completion point. If the Board of Supervisors DOES NOT approve this design AS IT IS, county staff will have to go back to the drawing board, which will cause even more delays in completing this project.… Read More »

Please, No Pets on the Tennis Courts

published: December 7th, 2020 by in Uncategorized

Dear Homeowners and Residents, We were happy to announce the opening of our resurfaced tennis courts this summer and had many positive reports on the new playing surface. However, PLEASE do not use the courts with pets or bring pets onto the courts! The courts are intended for tennis only. The court surface is synthetic and damaging long lasting marks can result from the claws of pets on the surface.  PLEASE respect the signage and take care of our community amenities as we, as a community, would want them to be taken care of. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and… Read More »
