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.

A note from the board of directors concerning the COVID-19 pandemic
 
Please see this note from the board.
 
Please see the following note from Patriot regarding waste collection during the COVID-19 pandemic
 
Patriot Disposal is following the latest developments concerning the COVID-19 virus on an on-going basis and will follow the recommendations and guidelines set by the authorities.  At this time, we would like to address the following:
  • We are an essential service and expect to continue services as scheduled.
  • Until the virus is completely contained, there is the potential for delays in service.
  • Trash that is outside the trash can will not be collected.  Trash that does not fit in the container should instead be placed into the container for collection on the following pick-up day.
  • We are resuming pick-up of bulk items, with the following conditions:
    • Bulk items include furniture, mattresses, construction debris, or any other large item that would normally be collected with a rear-load trash truck.
    • Advance notice is required for all items by phone at 703-257-7100 or by email at Customer Service.
    • There will be a nominal charge of $25.00 and up per item for bulk items such as small furniture and mattresses to cover the additional handling costs that we incur due to COVID-19.
  • Any updates will be posted on our website where they can be found under 'Contact Us.'
As always, we appreciate your understanding and patience. Thank you!
Patriot Disposal, Inc.

Tennis Court Resurfacing
Monday, August 17, 2020 to Friday, August 28, 2020 at the tennis court
Our tennis court will be out of service for about ten days for resurfacing.  This is a tentative date and subject to change, so check back for updates.  At the same time, we will install taller net posts to accommodate badminton and volleyball.  You can brush up on the rules at Badminton Pan America and the International Volleyball Federation.
Street Sign Replacement
Monday, August 24, 2020
New traffic pattern:  The stop sign along Manchester Park Circle in front of #6111 will be removed allowing traffic to continue moving until reaching the circle.  The opposing sign in front of #6110 will remain in place.  Additionally, the two stop signs at the circle will be moved a few feet closer to the circle, enabling better visibility for drivers.  The stop bars will be adjusted as soon as practical after the new signs are installed.  Note that the date is tentative; check back for updates.
