Each household will receive a maximum of three stickers and one visitor-hanging tag. Stickers must be displayed on the outside of the rear window in the lower left corner as you face the rear window of the vehicle.

The fourth decal will be valid for that calendar year only, and must be reapplied for on an annual basis. The fourth decal will require an annual fee of $150 to be paid by the homeowner, at the time of application.
 
Please note that any homeowner who is delinquent more than thirty days in arrears with homeowner assessments will not receive vehicle identification stickers or a guest hanging tag. Any vehicle that does not properly display a current and valid Raintree vehicle identification sticker or hanging tag by September 15, 2017, will be towed at the risk and expense of the vehicle owner.

Car Break-ins

Over the last few weeks, there have been multiple acts of vandalism and theft from cars in the Raintree lots. The HOA board is working with the police to increase patrols on Raintree property. We also encourage homeowners to lock your car doors, keep an eye out for suspicious individuals, and report any incidents to the police.

Visitor Parking Use and Trash

The board, as well as management, has noticed many vehicles parked in the community with the visitor hang tag displayed for prolonged periods of time. The visitor tag was not meant to be used by any vehicle for a period of more than seven days. If you have guests visiting for longer than this period, the board would need to be notified, and arrangements made for these specific circumstances.

Secondly, the board and management worked diligently with the current trash provider to negotiate the new contract. Several homeowners expressed their need for new trash cans and recycling bins. Both items will be issued at no cost to the association or owners. The delivery is scheduled for August 24th. Once you have received the new items, please mark with your address. If you do not want the new cans, please notify GHA as soon as possible.

Our trash service now also includes a “white goods” (e.g. appliances) pick up. If you find that you need to dispose of an appliance please contact:

American Disposal Services
P.O. Box 1326
Centreville, VA
Office# 703-368-0500
Fax# 703-392-1300

They will arrange a date for pick up. This will help the association’s appearance as well, and hopefully prevent items from being left on the curb.

Contact information for GHA as well as community services like American Disposal is also available via the website at: http://raintreehoa.info/hoa/links/
