Longwood Knolls Goverance Documents
Whenever a home in Longwood Knolls is sold, the buyer is provided a full set of our Homeowners' Association governance documents, including the Covenants, Bylaws, Articles of Amendment, Resolutions, and Architectural Guidelines.  Since all residents are legally required to comply with these documents, the Association must ensure that everyone has a current copy.  Accordingly, we have consolidated all of our active governance documents into a single 75-page publication entitled Longwood Knolls Homeowners' Association Governance Documents 2017 which is now available here for review and download.


Parking Restrictions
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has established a Community Parking District (CPD) in the Springfield District which encompasses Longwood Knolls.  The CPD restricts parking oversized vehicles on state-owned roads in communities which present sight-distance issues and are deemed safety related.  Vehicles that are restricted include:

*    Boat Trailers
*    Watercraft Boats
*    Motor Homes
*    Camping Trailers
*    Trailers or Semi-trailers, even if attached to a vehicle
*    Vehicles with 3 or more axles
*    Vehicles with a gross vehicle weighted rating (GVWR) of 12,000 lbs or more

Vehicles temporarily parked (for up to 48 hours) for the purposes of loading, unloading, or preparing for a trip are exempt from these restrictions.  To report violations, please call the Fairfax County Police non-emergency number: 703-691-2131.


Schools
Fairfax County boasts some of finest schools in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and Longwood Knolls offers our children access to the best of the best. Whether its Sangster Elementary, Cherry Run Elementary, or Lake Braddock Secondary School, Longwood Knolls' children receive a top-notch education. And Lake Braddock has recently completed a four-year, $74 million renovation that has dramatically improved the appearance and amenities of this institution.


Longwood Knolls Complaint Process
Section 55-530 of the Code of Virginia requires all homeowners associations to establish reasonable procedures for the resolution of written complaints from the members of the association and other citizens.  To comply with this statutory requirement, the Longwood Knolls Homeowners Association (LKHA) Board of Directors published a formal Complaint Process on 14 August 2012.
 
Please note that this process is not to be used to submit complaints related to internal LKHA issues, such as violations of the Architectural Guidelines, Covenants, or Bylaws. It should only be used for alleged violations of Virginia common interest community law or regulations.   Residents of Longwood Knolls are always welcome to bring issues and complaints directly to the Board of Directors in person, by telephone, or by email, and are free to address the Board at quarterly General Membership meetings. This is how our Association has always operated. We were required to implement this Complaint Process, but do not expect that it will ever be used.
 
The Resolution implementing the new Complaint Process is posted under Documents.
