Asphalt Rejuvenation Services on HOA-Owned Roads

The Board of Directors for Broadlands Association has contracted with TRI Technologies to perform asphalt rejuvenation on HOA OWNED streets. While we understand this will be an inconvenience, routine road maintenance is essential for the longevity of the road and cost savings for you and your homeowner’s association. This work will require the cooperation of all property owners and residents.

All asphalt areas will be rejuvenated including parking spaces, therefore all vehicles must be removed during the scheduled work days. Towing will be enforced at the owner’s expense. Streets will not be accessible during this project for up to 36 hours. Overnight parking will be permitted at the pool parking lots when your street is being serviced. Prior to your street repair, you will receive a notice in the mail with details on this project. In addition, a notice will be placed on your property as a reminder that work will begin soon.  As always, we will provide updated information on our website, however, please be sure to sign up for the weekly Broadlands Blast on the website and download the Broadlands App to stay up to date on any changes to this project and other news.

IMPORTANT DETAILS ON THIS PROJECT:

  • Please review the following schedules to determine the day your street will be closed. The first page is a street map indicating the phases (A, B, C, etc.) and the second page is the schedule showing the dates when those phases will be serviced: 
  1. Oct 9-14: Village Drive Areas Schedule – Map 1   You may park along Village Drive or at the Southern Walk Pool parking lot. Rain is expected for Monday, so this schedule may change.  Please refer back to the website for updates. More repair schedules to follow…
  • Please remove all vehicles from the street by 7:00 am on your scheduled work day or they will be towed/relocated at the owners’ expense. You will not be able to access your street or driveway for up to 36 hours, so please be prepared by parking vehicles on alternate roads and making any necessary arrangements to reach your home by walking via sidewalks and trails. Overnight parking will be permitted at the pool parking lots when your street is being serviced.
  • There will be no trash pickup on work days. Mail delivery can be completed if the carrier is able to walk in and drop the mail off.  We will attempt to communicate with the USPS, Patriot Disposal, FedEx, UPS and schools to coordinate alternative plans for these services.
  • All work is WEATHER PERMITTING In the event of rain, the project may affect the entire schedule so please check website for any updates.
  • Work Areas will be Barricaded – Please do not walk or cross into barricaded area. Doing this will ruin shoes, track material onto concrete, rugs, and floors.
  • For more information about the rejuvenation, please review the TRITechnology website at https://www.tritechnologiesasphaltrejuvenation.com/.

We wish to minimize the disruption to you and maximize the efficiency of the job, so please make plans accordingly!  Questions may be directed to sarah@broadlandshoa.com or 703-729-9704.

Wasps Treated on Chickacoan Trail Path

The path near Chickacoan Trail between Sundance and Cattail Meadow was treated for large wasps.  The location is noted below.  Please stay away for the next couple of days until the area is clear. Orange cones were placed near the area of the tree that was treated.  The treatment was sprayed on the tree and not the path, but please note it is harmful to pets if ingested.

Next Family Camp Out is Tonight!

Sign up for upcoming Family Camp Outs:

Every month now through October, we will have two Friday campouts per month. This will allow you to come and pitch a tent, enjoy S’mores and a fire pit, come inside and pet the animals and have bedtime stories. You can come to the Nature Center lawn and pitch your tent at 4:00pm, but we don’t light the fire until around 7:00pm. Kids have night games in the lawn and, when the weather is hot, we get out all of the water toys. If you want to come and enjoy the evening but don’t have the camping equipment we would love to have you. Costs are only $10.00 per family. These costs remain the same if you camp out or not as they cover the wood and marshmallows.
