The Association contracts for snow and ice removal from the main sidewalks, parking lots and streets in Fairlington Towne. Snow removal begins automatically only after two inches of snow has fallen in the community. During unusually heavy snow storms of over eight inches accumulation, plowing services will initially be done to open driving lanes to allow for emergency vehicle access only. When snow accumulations are over eight inches and/or drifting is occurring, normal snow plowing equipment’s' effectiveness may be reduced and the clearing of snow may require the use of front-end loaders.
The City of Alexandria requires property owners to remove snow and ice from the main sidewalk to their doorway within 24 hours after a snowfall. This is a unit owner's responsibility to clear and maintain, and will not be done by the Association.
