Swimming Pool Decision
Posted on Jul 20th, 2020
This is to inform you that the pool will not be opened this year. The HOA Board of Directors is most concerned about providing a safe and secure environment during the COVID-19 pandemic and at this time that is not possible. This was a difficult and complicated decision for the HOA Board to make. All factors and available information and experience of other communities and Prince William County were taken into consideration as this decision was made.
New Grounds Chair
Please join us in welcoming Nora Hussain of Robey Way as the new Grounds Chair. The purpose of this committee is to work towards increased community property values through maintenance and enhancement of the common areas in order to maintain a cohesive appearance over all of River Falls. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, please feel free to send her an email at email@example.com.

Right to Access Homeowners' Lots
The Board/Managing Agent have the right to access homeowners’ lots; pursuant to the legal advice provided by the Association’s attorney, Whiteford, Taylor & Preston LLP, “Article V, Section of the Association’s Declaration explicitly grants the Board of Directors through their agents the right to enter a lot at a reasonable time for the purpose of ascertaining where the lot is in compliance with, among other things, Article VI (use restrictions). The Board can do this without being deemed as having committed a trespass or wrongful act by entering the lot. This means that the Board and/or management agent has the right to access the entire lot (front and back) without concern.”
Please note that Management will not exercise this right during the pandemic.
