Who Maintains Your Road? New Loudoun County Online Map Provides the Answer

from the Loudoun County Website

Screen shot of road maintenance map

Loudoun County has launched a new online tool to help residents determine the entity that is responsible for maintaining roads within the county, including snow removal and surface repairs.

The interactive, searchable map provides users with a resource for navigating the complex maintenance responsibility system for the road network in the county. In addition, the map links to a webpage with contact information for the various entities to help residents report concerns about maintenance to the correct entity.

Users may search by a street address, view responsibility by color-coded system or click on a particular road and a pop-up box will appear indicating road maintenance responsibility. The responsibility for road maintenance in Loudoun County varies by road. Most roads are maintained by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), one of the county’s incorporated towns, and private entities, such as homeowners associations (HOA).

“This tool is particularly useful for identifying maintenance responsibility in residential neighborhoods, which sometimes have two different responsible entities for two adjacent roads,” said Department of Building and Development Director Mike Seigfried. “In advance of snow events, for example, residents can learn whether their HOAs will plow snow on their streets and then contact their HOAs to learn about their snow-removal plans.”

As newly-constructed roads are developed, maintenance responsibility may change from one entity to another, such as from a developer to a homeowners association. The Loudoun County map will be updated on a monthly basis.

A link to the map and contact information for the various entities involved in road maintenance in the county may be found on the Loudoun County website at www.loudoun.gov/roads.

Your Board of Directors Needs You!

Our Board of Directors is charged with maintaining, preserving and enhancing the common assets of our association. In order to perform those duties our Board depends upon the advice and counsel of experts in various fields of community association management: our management company, attorneys, landscapers, insurance specialists, etc.

When making decisions regarding our community, the Board is expected to consider all the facts and factors involved in the issue and make the best business decision possible. Sometimes those decisions may not appear to be in the best interests of all of the owners, however if each owner understood all of the underlying issues that go into making the decision, they would understand that the board’s choice of action is usually the most practical and well thought out.

In addition to dealing with insurance, maintenance, financial and contractual decisions, the board must also balance their positions on the board with their role as a homeowner. If assessments are increased that means they are increased for them also. If rules are enacted, that means they have to obey them, too. Being a board member does not grant one immunity from the responsibilities of living in an association. In fact, serving on the board reflects just how seriously they take that responsibility. So, please keep in mind that our board members are actually doing “double-duty” for our community: they serve as board members and neighbors.

That being said, the annual ballots have been mailed to your home. Please be sure to review the information and return in to the office. Without you (a quorum of our voters) the election for board members doesn’t count. If you are interested in joining one of our boards, Architectural Review, Townhouse Association Board or the Homeowners Association Board, please let the office know. We are always looking for volunteers for committees or board spots.
