Driving on Common Areas
The common areas are for everyone’s enjoyment. This does NOT include, however, the use of motorized vehicles like mopeds and motor scooters. Our insurance doesn’t cover them and they tear up the grounds and grass. Also, our Rules and Regulations prohibit them. So, please find somewhere else where it is legal to ride them.
Dumping on Common Areas
The Common Areas are part of everyone's back yard. However, in several areas, yard debris such as grass clippings and branches are being dumped. PLEASE do not dump debris in the common areas. Besides being unsightly, these dumping areas draw rodents and other wild animals into our neighborhood. Your trash service will pick up yard debris separately for recycling from spring through fall. It will even pick up debris as part of your trash service during the winter. If you have been putting debris in the common areas, please move it out to the street on debris day or haul it to the Fairfax County dump on West Ox Road. Although the common areas may be wooded, the woods can’t decompose more debris than it generates itself. In other words, the clippings and branches you dump in the common areas overload the area’s ability to decompose the material.
There are a number of community-owned paths in Hickory Farms, some of them made of concrete, some asphalt, and some “invisible.” You may live next to a community-owned path and not even know it! First, a big “thank you” to those folks living adjacent to the paths who have helped maintain them over the years. Your hard work maintaining the paths benefits all of us by adding to the beauty of our community. The Hickory Farms Common Grounds Coordinator also has community property maps that show the locations of these paths.
