Welcome to the Townes at Manchester Park!
 
The Townes at Manchester Park is a community of townhomes in Franconia, an unincorporated township in greater Alexandria, Virginia.  We're a small community of ninety-four units, built from 1997 to 1998, and located within a ten-minute walk of the Kingstowne Town Center and the Festival at Manchester Lakes shopping areas.  The Townes at Manchester Park Homeowners Association is a non-profit corporation, owned entirely by the community's homeowners.  Its purpose is to provide for the maintenance, preservation and architectural control of residential lots, and to own, improve, maintain and preserve the common areas.  We are professionally managed by Landmarc Real Estate, Inc, of Fredericksburg, Virginia.
 
~ Announcements ~
Tennis Players
 
Please leave the court cleaner than you found it, and take empty water bottles and ball cannisters with you.  To prolong the life of the net's post footings, please ease tension on the net cable when you leave.  This will alleviate excessive stress as the cable contracts in the evening's cooler temperature.
 
Board of Directors Vacancies
 
We have two vacant positions on our board of directors.  If you or someone you know is interested in serving on the board, please contact our community manager at mrivas@e-landmarc.com.  Duties include meeting quarterly to conduct HOA business, and occasional related business and discussions.  It's a great opportunity to have an impact and make the Townes at Manchester Park the kind of community YOU want to live in!
 
What has the HOA done for me lately?
 
  • We resurfaced our streets.
  • We repaired the damaged tennis court fence and added a toe rail.
  • We repaired three damaged street lights in the last few months.
  • We refinished the gazebo to prolong its useful life.
  • We arranged mosquito control (see above).
  • We repaired cracks in the tennis court surface in June.
  • The board also handles routine business of the association to include hiring and overseeing contractors, establishing the assessment rate, adopting a budget, maintaining common areas, and reviewing exterior modification requests.
  • In addition ot the items above, your dues pay for landscaping throughout the common areas, trash and recycling collection, maintenance of common property (tennis court, signs, gazebo, street lights, etc), management, snow plowing, legal services, electricity (for street lights), insurance, accounting, and other services.
