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.

Recycling
 
In addition to trash collection on Mondays and Thursdays, Patriot Disposal collects recyclable material on Wednesdays.  For more information on what can be recycled in Fairfax County, please see Patriot's recycling page at Residential Recycling Service.
 
​​​​​​Tennis Court Reopening
 
Our tennis court re-opened on Tuesday, September 8th.  We repaired the underlying surface to correct cracks and deadspots and resurfaced the court.  At the same time, we installed taller net posts to accommodate badminton and volleyball.  You can brush up on the rules at Badminton Pan America, the International Volleyball Federation, and the International Tennis Federation.  Please do your part to keep our new court in pristine condition: pick up any trash, leave the court cleaner than you found it, lock the gate when you leave, and don't mark up the surface.
 
Board of Directors Vacancies
 
We have a vacant position on our board of directors.  If you or someone you know is interested in serving on the board, please contact our community manager at rfernett@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?
  • The board 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.
  • Additionally, 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.
