Important Pool Info All residents must bring an upto-date 3”x5” picture that includes all family members to the pool for admittance. The picture will be matched with information in our database. Make sure to take the time to review the pool rules printed in the May issue of the Chantilly Highlander with your children, especially if you have older children that may be allowed to enter the pool without parental supervision. You can review the rules on our website at www.chha.org under the Pool Opening Info section. Remind your children that the pool guards have the authority to eject residents for the day, and even suspend pool privileges for the duration of the pool season if warranted. The pool hours are posted on the calendar on page 4 of this issue. The pool concessions contract was awarded to Cindy Nichols. Remember to bring coin and small currency to the pool if you plan on purchasing snacks during breaks. Enjoy, but be safe!

The Chantilly Highlander
Chantilly Highlands Homes Association Board of Directors Meeting Thursday, May 5, 2005 Submitted by: Mary Kerr Minutes are tentative and will be reviewed and approved at the upcoming Board of Directors meeting.
Board Attendees: Jeff Boehlert, Debbie Bowen, Jim Ceh, Mark Hassinger, Mary Kerr, Karen McGreevy, Wendy Osborn, Chris Tacinelli and Darin Welt. Absent Board Attendees: None. Home Owner Attendees: Two residents. The Chantilly Highlands Homes Association Meeting was called to order at 7:36 PM by President, Jim Ceh. Meeting Minutes: The April Minutes were reviewed and accepted with one correction. Cathe Hargenrader’s name was misspelled. Architectural Control: Mark Hassinger made a Motion to appoint Cindy DiPalma to the ACC Committee. Chris Tacinelli seconded. All approved. Cindy was welcomed by all. Long Range Planning: Mary Kerr presented the topics that are to be discussed at tonight’s meeting as well as what information should be included in the upcoming Newsletter. The planning calendar will be emailed to all board members. The community center parking lot is scheduled to be resurfaced between May 10 and May 15. The edges of the lot will be milled, cracks will be filled in, the entire lot paved and striped. Treasurer's Report: Chris Tacinelli reported that 20 homes still owe their assessment dues and these residents will not be permitted to use the pool, community center, or participate in any other subdivision activities until their assessments are paid. Chris has either contacted each homeowner either by phone or email. Twenty-five thousand dollars has been budgeted to cover major expenses this year, however, we will actually spend $44,000. The remaining $19,000 will be taken from reserves. The auditor has reviewed the CHHA accounting books and has approved. Money is currently in two accounts at one local bank – money market and checking account. The auditor suggested that the reserve funds be separated out and placed in another bank. This will help keep the accounting clean and also provide protection of the funds if a bank would close. Community Events: The community yard sale was held
on Saturday, April 30th even though it was dampened with rain. Due to the rain and low turn-out, residents suggested that a “rain date” be set for future yard sales. There was no recollection of there being a rain date in the past. The Social Committee meeting at the Community Center will be held on Wednesday, May 18th at 7 p.m. to discuss/plan Community Day, and Teen Party. Everyone is invited. Community Facilities: The pool opening is on schedule and will open in three weeks. The furniture was inspected and thoughts are that additional furniture will not be needed this season. The Rolodex system will be used again this pool season. Community Facilities and the Guards ask that you be patient as each person’s name is looked up for confirmation that they are a resident and in good standing with the CHHA Bylaws and Covenants. Cindy Nichols won the snack provider contract for this pool season. The Guards will be selling the snack items during break time and ask that you use small bills and coins. Pool companies were contacted about inspecting all the pool equipment this spring and have them provide a recommendation of what needs to be upgraded/repaired over the next couple of years based on wear and tear and Fairfax County requirements. The consensus was that there is really no way to check the equipment for life expectancy and if something should break, it should only take one to two days to repair. The tennis courts are in the process of being resurfaced. The courts are useable for tennis play, however, bicycles, skateboards, roller blades, etc. are not permissible. Once the surface is cured, the lines will be painted and fence repaired. Caution tape will be placed around the tennis court area to discourage use by articles that could damage the resurfacing process. Land Management: Mowing of the common areas has begun, and several residents have asked about mowing of the gas lines by CHHA since the utility companies seldom come to mow. Currently all common ground that has street access is maintained by the Association. There are two large gas lines in this community. Mark Hassinger made the Motion to have Wendy Osborn contact Palmer Property Management to retrieve a bid of what it would cost to cut these two gas lines and how often they should be cut. Mary Kerr seconded. Motion carried. Neighborhood Watch: Officer Barrington and Officer See BOARD MINUTES on Page 3
BOARD MINUTES from page 2
Twombly of the Fairfax County Police Department came this evening to train residents and discuss Neighborhood Watch. Attendance was very disappointing because only two residents attended. National Night Out is scheduled for Tuesday, August 2nd. This is an evening block party held throughout the country. A suggestion was made that this could be a way to get information out about Neighborhood Watch. It was also suggested that we could incorporate this into our Community Day when attendance is high. Due to the recent drug arrest of a non-CHHA resident on Scotsmore, and needles and drug paraphernalia being found on the bike path near McLearan and Cobra, police bike patrol will increase in this area. Parents are asked to talk to your children about not handling any items they may find on these paths, being approached by anyone selling drugs and to notify police of immediately if this occurs. Architectural Control: The Board is planning to walk the
neighborhood this fall to look for homes that are not in compliance with the ACC Guidelines, Bylaws and Covenants. A revised ACC Guideline book is in review and will be printed and mailed to the residents soon. Newsletter: Nothing to report at this time. Old Business: Discussion was postponed regarding upgrading the current insurance concerns brought up at the last meeting. There have been some problems arising from Verizon being in the neighborhood. Contact numbers were in the May Newsletter if residents have experienced any problems. New Business: The land owned by EDS that is being proposed to be developed will be meeting in June with the County. The community and the Board will want to attend future planning and development meetings with the County. Adjournment: Chris Tacinelli made a Motion to adjourn the meeting and Jeff Boehlert Seconded. The Board approved and the meeting adjourned at 9:15 p.m.

Remodeling Contract Provisions By Carla Abbud
Once you have picked a remodeler, no work should begin until you have a written contract that spells out the details of your project. What are some of the typical provisions remodeling contracts include?
•The remodeling company’s legal name and the name it is operating or “doing business as” (if the two are different), street address, telephone number, and license number. •A detailed written and visual representation - blueprint, floor plan, sketches, product photographs - that both states, and depicts, what the remodeler will do and where. •The timetable for the project, including approximate start and completion dates. •The price and progress payment schedule. Payments are usually tied to the satisfactory completion of a certain construction phase and the passing of building inspections for that phase, if applicable. A hefty deposit is generally not required if a contractor is solvent and reliable. •Detailed specifications for all products and materials. The description of each item should provide enough detail to clearly identify it, such as the brand name, model number, color, and size. This section of the contract may also describe any materials to be selected later, who will choose them, and the amount of money (called an allowance) set aside to pay for each item. •Information on who will obtain and pay for necessary permits and other approvals. Generally, the contractor should obtain permits in his name so that that the contractor, not the homeowner, is responsible for any building code violations. •Insurance information. It is a good idea to list the contractor’s workers’ compensation and liability insurance information in the contract, or to attach it as an exhibit. The issuing insurance company’s name, policy number, policy effective dates, types and limits of coverage are all listed on a Certificate of Insurance routinely providing by the contractor’s insurance broker. You will want to check the policy effective dates to ensure that it covers the time frame when your project will be built. You can also ask to be listed as an “additional insured” on the contractor’s policy for the duraSee REMODELING on page 7

tion of the project. Talk to your own insurance agent about this issue if you have questions.
•The procedures for handling change orders. •Lien releases to ensure that you are not held liable for any claims of nonpayment by the contractor to subcontractors and suppliers.
•Waiver of liability. Reputable contractors should be willing to state in writing that their company specifically exempts the homeowner from liability for any injury sustained by any employee or subcontractor of the company during the course of the project, and that the contractor will indemnify and defend the homeowner against all such claims.

•Provisions for conflict resolution in the event of a contract dispute.
•Details on issues like access to your home, care of the premises, phone and bathroom use, cleanup, trash removal, and repair of disturbed landscaping.

•Warranty information. Most remodelers offer some

form of written warranty. Many builders back their own warranties on workmanship and materials, typically for one year. Others offer warranties backed by an insurance company. Also, some warranties for things such as roofing, windows, and doors, may be provided by the manufacturer. Distinguish between the different types of warranties and list them in your contract.
•Once you have read your contract carefully, review it with your remodeler to clarify any wording you do not understand.
•If you still have questions after this meeting, you should discuss them with your attorney. When all your questions have been answered, you're ready to sign the contract. NEXT INSTALLMENT… Preparing for, and Living with, Construction

Fairfax County Health Department is asking residents to help with their West Nile virus surveillance by reporting dead birds. Avoid handling any dead animal with bare hands. Correctly dispose of a dead bird by double-bagging it and placing it in the garbage. Report it at 703-246-2300 or www.fairfaxcounty.gov/fightthebite. You will be asked to provide your name, phone number, date and location found, and type/description of the bird. You can also help by eliminating mosquito breeding sites of standing water. Protect yourself by wearing mosquito repellent containing DEET when outdoors.
Children should be reminded to always wear bike helmets, stay hydrated during the warm weather, especially if playing sports, and to avoid other dangers such as wild animals, reptiles, and unknown objects.

Watch Out For Children
Our children might not always remember to look for cars when crossing the street. Drive carefully, and remember that our speed limit is 25 mph.
CRIME & INCIDENTS REPORT No incidents to report. You can view crime and incident reports on the internet at www.co.fairfax.va.us/ps/police/ police7.htm. Although drugs have not been a major issue in this community, we have had reports of drug paraphernalia found on the bike path near McLearen Road and Cobra Drive. There has also been one drug arrest on Scotsmore Drive. This arrest involved a subject who was not a resident of Chantilly Highlands. The police are aware of the situation and are following up on the information and reports. Parents are asked to talk to their children about not handling any items they may find on these paths, and if approached by a stranger to advise their parents, who should report it to the police. The non-emergency police phone number is 703691-2131. If at all possible report it in a timely matter so an officer might be able to catch someone. With summer approaching there is typically an increase in criminal/mischievous activity. Remember to report any suspicious persons, vehicles, or activities to the police. Bring your cell phone when you take your evening walks with your neighbor or with the dog. Program the police non-emergency number (703-691-2131) into your cell phone. For emergencies or crimes occurring, call 911—remember as much information as possible, but do not intervene.

There must be no emotional, medical, or behavioral problems which affect judgment or decision-making skills. Child must be comfortable being alone. Youth must have a safety plan worked out with the parent/ caretaker, which includes: 1. How to access parent or other responsible adult at all times (including knowing the parent/caretaker’s whereabouts and having a telephone number where parent can be reached). 2. What to do in case of emergency. 3. Guidelines for acceptable behavior. 4. Knowledge of emergency telephone numbers. Youth must demonstrate the ability to follow the safety plan and to make decisions that reflect concern for personal safety.
SUPERVISION GUIDELINES 7 years & under: Should not be left alone for any period of time. This may include leaving children unattended in cars, playgrounds, and backyards.
