Board Meeting Summary
The Board met April 20th. Couldn't make the meeting, but want to know what we have been up to and what is going on in the community? Click here to review the Community Manager Report. The following notable actions were taken:
The Board ratified the following email decision due to its time sensitive nature: 2023 Pool Schedule. The Board also approved revisions to the Due Process Policy, Strategic Planning Committee Charter and this resident committee will schedule their first meeting shortly. Additionally, engagement for the FY23 Audit and revised Property Maintenance & Design Standards which will be sent to the Founder for final approval.

Approved Minutes, and other documents are available to view on WillowsfordLife.com in the Document Center.

Mailbox Issue & Resolution
NEW! A few streets in The Greens were recently notified by the USPS that their mailboxes did not meet current USPS height requirements. They were required to raise their mailboxes to avoid having their mail service put on hold. Due to our current mailbox standards, this was not going to be a simple, inexpensive task. After discussing the issue with the Board, they agreed to permit a relatively easy solution and to adjust the design standards accordingly to ensure mailboxes would be compliant with USPS standards. If you receive a notice from the USPS regarding the height of your mailbox, please contact HOA@willowsford.com. We want to thank the residents involved for their patience.
Willowsford Security Patrols
NEW! You may have noticed security vehicles patrolling the community. Willowsford HOA contracts with Signal 88 to provide community patrols after hours. These patrols primarily focus on the amenities through Willowsford and the Conservancy. The purpose of these patrols is to help prevent vandalism, illegal activity, and to keep our residents safe. If you are walking in the evening, one of these officers may stop to ask if you need assistance. Signal 88 officers always dress in appropriately labeled attire and drive vehicles clearly marked as Signal 88. If you have any questions about this service, please reach out to HOA@willowsford.com.
While Signal 88 helps to prevent incidents, they are not able to intervene. If you need immediate assistance, please contact 911 or LCPS non-emergency at 703-777-1021.
