We have a new safety fence installed on Heathrow Dr., around the drainage pond that has existed for about 15 years. This has been a safety issue for residents for over a decade and we finally are able to enclose (safely) the drainage pond that the developer failed to do. At the end of the year, when you ask what has the HOA done for me, things like this should pop into your mind. Next, look for the refurbishment of the entrance message board and brick facade.
Political Signs - 2012
Posted: Wednesday, October 03, 2012
Every election year, and especially during a Presidential election year, political signs pop up in yards. Last year, the ARC was requested to come up with a policy regarding political signs in the neighborhood. Here is what was agreed to and approved: Each home is allowed ONE "yard sign" (a yard sign is the standard small sign you see throughout the County, 18 inches by 24 inches)from 1 month before the election until the day after the election. This applies to the entire lot, front, back and sides. I understand people get passionate about politics, but please keep things civil and abide by this exception granted by the ARC.
Do you have a problem with the ditch in front of your property or a pothole on your street?

If you are having a problem with a dog (or dogs) that bark(s) excessively, Spotsylvania County has a process to assist you in restoring peace to your little part of Ashleigh Park. Referencing Sec. 4-16 of the Spotsylvania County Code, if ANY dog is barking and you deem it an annoyance, call Animal Control (through the Sheriff's office @ 582-7115). They will visit the home of the violator and explain the county ordinance to them on the first notification. After that, with a complaint for another neighbor, it goes to court for criminal prosecution.
"(b) For the purpose of this section, a harsh or excessive animal noise is one which disturbs the quiet, comfort or repose of a reasonable person with normal sensitivities.
(c) For the purpose of this section, a person shall be deemed to have "allowed" his animal to bark or create other harsh or excessive noises if he has once been put on notice by the county sheriff's department or the animal warden, upon the complaints of two (2) persons who are not members of the same household or upon the complaint of one (1) person if there are no more than two (2) households within seven hundred fifty (750) feet of the property line of the noise source, that the animal is disturbing one (1)or more members of the community within seven hundred fifty (750) feet of the property line of the noise source and he thereafter fails to confine such animal inside his dwelling unit or other enclosed structure or take other action to terminate such disturbance. It shall not be necessary for the sheriff's department or animal warden to issue a new notice for each repeated occurrence.
(Ord. No. 4-2, 6-1-93; Ord. No. 4-4, 7-26-94; Ord. No. 4-9, 2-10-98; Ord. No. 4-10, 3-10-98; Ord. No. 4-11, 7-14-98; Ord. No. 4-12, 8-11-98; Ord. No. 4-13, 8-11-98; Ord. No. 4-16, 10-26-99; Ord. No. 4-17, 1-11-00; Ord. No. 4-18, 2-22-00; Ord. No. 4-19, 6-27-00; Ord. No. 4-20, 8-14-01; Ord. No. 4-21, 8-10-04)
This is a Class 3 Misdemeanor.
Pass this info around to help keep Ashleigh Park a nice place to live.
Pool Amendment Vote
Posted: Friday, March 09, 2007
Here are the results of the vote. This tally does not take in to account "for" votes that were not notarized or did not include all homeowners on a single ballot:
For above ground pools in Ashleigh Park: 39
Against above ground pools in Ashleigh Park: 199
Please remember that a non-vote is the same as a "no" vote. According to our attorney (Mr. Levy), those who did not send in a ballot or drop one off at a meeting voted "no." (If you'd like a copy of that email, please let me know) There are some problems with a few "yes" votes, but since the totals are not even close, it really does not matter.
Just a reminder, to pass the amendment, 75% of the home owners had to vote "yes." Approximately 16% of the home owners in Ashleigh Park voted to pass this Amendment. 84% either voted no, or did not vote (effectively, a "no" vote--intentionally or unintentionally).
The result is that above ground pools greater than 24" in height are not allowed in Ashleigh Park, regardless of what you may have been told by anyone on the APHOA Board or by a developer in the past. The Covenents stand unamended.
