The Open Space Committee

The Committee
 

The Open Space Committee was chartered by the Dulles Farms Community Association Board to assist it in developing and implementing a program to enhance the beauty and appeal of the Dulles Farms community.  All recommendations and actions of the committee are solely advisory in nature.

 

The Community

 

The Dulles Farms Community is comprised of four sub-communities: Stratshire Crossing, Westridge, Virginia Manor and White Oak. Each have their own history, personality, attributes and challenges.

 

The Vision

 

The vision of the committee in carrying out its Board advisory duties is to preserve and enhance the distinct character of each community, protect property values and meet the expectations of the homeowners. The community and its leaders share a common goal of enriching the general well-being and quality-of-life of its residents through improvements to the ambiance and beauty of each neighborhood.

 

The Mission

 

In its advisory role to the board, the Open Space committee will develop guidelines for the committee  members, conduct meetings and encourage the participation of homeowners. Additionally, the committee will develop and adhere to a methodical, transparent process by which all stakeholders can voice their opinions, offer comments and submit proposals to be evaluated for inclusion in the long-term plan for  consideration by the Board.
