The annual assessment is currently $510 for full members and $255 for recreational easement members, and is due on April 1st. Please see the payments page for the address or online payment options.
When the developer created our neighborhood, "Kingstream Community Council", they also developed the neighborhood adjacent to ours called "Kingstream". During that time, the developer offered anyone purchasing a home in the "Kingstream" development a one-time opportunity to buy a recreational easement which allows them use of the recreational amenities of the "Kingtream Community Council" such as the pool and tennis courts. This offering was made as a one-time option and is no longer available for an opt-in or for any existing easement member to opt-out as the easement runs with the ownership of the property. Easement members are not full members of the "Kingstream Community Council" and therefore pay a lower annual assessment.
Some communities are set up to have their trash serviced by one provider from the creation of the neighborhood, while others are not. In the case of our community, it was not set up for community-wide trash pickup when it was developed. A community wide trash provider would require a service contract with the HOA, and the HOA would then need to collect the cost for those services from each homeowner as a part of the annual assessment. It is important to note that trash service contracts are not consistently flat and have frequent increases for inflation, dump fees, fuel surcharges, labor costs and recycling services. Kingstream's governing documents do not allow for the Board to raise homeowner assessments by a simple board vote. Instead, a special community meeting must be held, and the members must vote in favor of an increase. Every time trash rates increase a special meeting and vote would be necessary. The Board has concluded this administrative process too burdensome for homeowners. The Board must also be considerate of the fact that some homeowners may prefer their current service provider and would not like to switch to a new one. Additionally, some homeowners may have signed up for multi-year contracts with their current provider.
If your street is near Herndon Highschool, you may see signage requiring a permit for street parking. Please visit the RPPD page of the Fairfax County website.
Tree concerns can be reported to property management. It's also important to note that Kingstream's common area adjoins with Fairfax County property so the tree may not be on Kinstream property.
We recommend you first approach your neighbor and try to work it out with them in a friendly/neighborly manor. Depending on the situation, it may also be helpful to have an arborist take a look at the tree to confirm whether the tree is truly a danger. An arborist's expert opinion may be helpful to determine the best path forward.
No, Kingstream is outside the Herndon town limits. Therefore, when reaching out to services such as police, you should contact Fairfax county.
