The Virginia Department of Transportation is holding a public information meeting Wednesday, June 22 on plans to widen Rolling Road (Route 638) from two to four lanes, between just north of the Fairfax County Parkway (Route 286) to Old Keene Mill Road (Route 644) to reduce congestion and improve safety.

You can stop by between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. at Rolling Valley Elementary School, 6703 Barnack Drive, West Springfield, VA 22152 to view displays and learn more about the project.

Do you or one of your neighbors take phenomenal care of the yard?

Are the flowers blooming, bushes trimmed, yard nicely landscaped and manicured?
Beautiful yards are not only pleasing to the eye but help us maintain our property values in Orange Hunt. They also help us take great care of mother nature and her creatures.

This is OHECA’s fifth annual contest to honor residents who take phenomenal care of their yards. Winners receive $100, $50 and $25 gift cards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

You may nominate yourself, nominate a neighbor or nominate a property within Orange Hunt that, in your judgement, goes above and beyond!
Last year 6719 Houndmaster, 8905 Side Saddle and 6900 Spur won. Send all nominations to by Friday, May 27th. Only OHECA members are eligible to win.
Please make sure to include an explanation as to ‘why’ you selected this property.

We will announce the winners late next month!!

Potholes happen. Our cars don’t like potholes, so take a few minutes to report any you encounter in Fairfax County. VDOT fills most potholes in the county.
Here’s a link to how to report them:

from Fairfax County Police Department news release:
Report Crimes Online with New, Updated System
Whether it’s a suspicious person trolling the neighborhood, a mailbox that’s been vandalized, or a stolen bicycle, all crimes matter to police. Online reporting is the quickest, most convenient way of documenting incidents and police urge residents to take advantage of an updated online reporting system. Although the police department has had online reporting capacity for almost a decade, a new, easier, more user-friendly system was installed in December 2013. Police remind residents that no crime is too insignificant to report and that, often, these figures and incidents are used by crime analysts to detect trends and insert proactive, preventive measures. Residents may use the system to report crimes at any time. They will be notified of a report number and may use it for insurance purposes. If appropriate, an officer will notify and or respond to the complainant.

Use the online reporting system to report the following non-emergency crimes/incidents:

  • Bicycle theft
  • Larceny/theft under $5,000
  • Telephone harassment/threats
  • Trespassing
  • Lost property
  • Civil disputes
  • Unoccupied hit & run crashes
  • Solicitor violations
  • Destruction of private property/vandalism
  • Larceny/theft from motor vehicles or parts
  • Suspicious persons/vehicles
