Trash Pick Up

According to American Disposal’s website, Trash service in our area was delayed by one day due to the snow on Monday.  Therefore our normal Monday service this week was picked up on Tuesday, and Thursday’s pick up will be today, Friday,  1/18/19.

Given the possibility of another inclement weather this weekend and  in the upcoming months, residents can click here for direct information about trash pick up service if you would like the most up to date information.

Regardless of inclement weather,  we’d greatly appreciate everyone’s continued  participation  in adhering to our Woodwind’s trash regulation guidelines.

Inclement Weather & Trash Pick Up

Per our Property Manager, Diana Fritts:

We have heard from some of the trash companies that trash may not be picked up today. They are going out to try but if they find it not safe or their drivers, trash will be delayed by one day.


Notices have been posted on doors of units that need to shut off their outside faucets.  This notice applies ONLY to the units listed below.

The following units must turn off either their front/side/or rear outside faucets for the upcoming season. Please follow the INSTRUCTIONS on your notice.

In observance of Thanksgiving Day,  American Disposal Services, Inc. will not pick up trash on Thursday.   Instead, trash will be picked up on Friday.

Please do not leave trash out earlier than 8PM on Thursday


As of Thursday, 10/25/18 at 7:45PM, there is an emergency water shut off affecting the residents who reside at 2112 GWW through 2122 GWW due to a water leak at 2122 GWW Unit #100.

We do apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause the residents in the affected buildings.  However due to the nature of the emergency, it was necessary to minimize further impact of the water leakage by shutting off the main valve.

Kiddco is on their way and will do their best to expedite the work to restore water back to the units as soon as possible.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.


Woodwinds Board of Directors


2018 Annual Meeting of the Woodwinds Council of Co-owners

DATE: Tuesday, 13 November 2018
TIME: 6:30 pm EST
PLACE: Reston Association
12001 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston, VA 20191

Detailed letter for the annual meeting will be mailed out this week.

Please review all  information including the protocol for electing a designated proxy.



The Board of Directors would like to communicate with residents at this time regarding several projects that are coming up for this fall.  Due to time sensitivity, we are posting this information on the website so that residents may receive information in a timely manner.

Carport Roof Replacement

Per our reserve study,  the existing carport roof replacement was planned for 2018. Cutting Edge, Inc. will begin the replacement project on October 1st, 2018.  Estimated time of completion as well as start date may change depending on the weather.  Currently, the rake boards  are being replaced and the work being done now does not require vehicles to be moved and all this will be completed prior to starting the carport roof replacement.  We will update residents on any new information that may impact the community as  we receive them regarding this project.

Verizon FiOS

Verizon has recently informed us that they are ready to  begin the FiOs cable installation  project and will begin assessment in Woodwinds beginning the week of September 10th.  No details of the project schedule has been provided at this time.

Verizon contractors will be on the property and possibly on some balconies as they assess their installation project.  Please note that the workers will be wearing lime green shirts.

Final Asphalt Sealing

Residents will recall the major asphalt replacement project that took place in October of 2017.  As part of that project, final coat of sealant must be put on the asphalt.  No dates have been scheduled at this time but we do expect to complete this final project before the winter months.  Updates will be provided when available.

Water Shut Off Notice

Water shut off notices were posted on the building doors for the units that will be affected for necessary plumbing work. Please note the following dates and the units that will be affected.

  •   Tuesday, July 31, 2018 from 9:30 AM-12:30PM for 2116 GWW Unit 201
    • Units affected 2112-2122 GWW
  • Thursday, August 2, 2018 from 9:30 AM-12:30PM for 2110 GWW Unit200
    • Units affected 2100-2110 GWW

Notices will continue to be posted on the actual building doors and that process will not change.  The board will do its best to post this type of information on the website when we are able to for residents who value e-communication.

We’d also appreciate your assistance in removing outdated notices.  Thank you.

Woodwinds Pathway Work

Back in  October 2017, Finley Asphalt & Sealing Company was contracted to complete the concrete and asphalt work for the entire community. At the time, the  pathways in our community (11646 Ivy Stone Ct., 11622 Golfcourse, between Ivystone Ct to Green Watch and towards the Pavillion) were all due for rework as well and it was scheduled to be completed Spring of 2018.

Due to weeks of rain during the month of May, this work was delayed and pending good weather, Finley Co. is slated to begin the pathway construction work from Wednesday, June 6th through Friday, June 8th, 2018.

Minimal disruption is anticipated and as of now only one parking spot will be cleared (Finley will post signs). The Don’s John that is on Ivy Stone Ct. is for the crew and will be removed when the work is completed.

During this time, please use alternate paths for walking your dogs.

The board appreciates your understanding of some inconveniences that may arise with this necessary work.  Please direct any questions you may have to our property manager, Diana Fritts.


IMPORTANT: Power Outage on Ivy Stone

Earlier this afternoon, a resident reported smoke coming from the ground at the entrance of 11618 Ivystone Court.

Fairfax Fire Department identified an underground fire caused by an electric cable  and isolated the area.

Dominion Energy is now on Woodwinds property working to replace the damaged electrical cable and anticipate on working overnight to complete this work.

Based on information provided by Dominion Energy, Power will be out in almost all of the garden- style condos for residents residing at  11612-11620 Ivystone Ct. from this evening til the work is complete – which they anticipate to be in the early hours of tomorrow morning.

Dominion will also temporarily cut the power to the rest of the community in the early AM ( no time frame available) for a short duration of time to complete the underground cable restoration work.
