Time to get out those family photo albums! We are looking for “quintessential Fallsmead” pictures from Fallsmead’s beginning until now to add to the Fallsmead History page and to consider for inclusion in the 50th Anniversary photo book that we are compiling. If you have something you would like to share (anything from Fallsmead nature to neighborhood events to neighborhood photos), please email it to communications@fallsmead.org (all pictures will be added to the Photo Album page). If you have photos that you want me to scan for you, just let me know!
While you are looking for photos, here are some historical photos that we would REALLY like to have:
  • Pictures of what the neighborhood looked like before/during/right after it was built (especially pictures of the 1100 and 1200 blocks of Fallsmead Way/Cedrus, and anything from the Greenplace side)
  • Early neighborhood photos
  • The road around the pond from lower Pipestem in 1969/the early 1970s before it was closed to automobile traffic (extra bonus if you have a picture of a car driving on it!)
  • Ewing property photos from the late 1960s through the building of the new section in the mid-1980s (I’d love a picture of lower Pipestem looking down the street toward the farm with both the houses and the farm in it)

The Little Free Library is up and running at the corner of Infield Court North and Fallsmead Way.  
Here's how the library works...
This Little Free Library offers a way to share good things to read—favorite books from your childhood or books you would recommend to friends; books that teach, intrigue and engage you. All of us can help by keeping this collection stocked with good reading material. 
Whose library is this? 
It belongs to everybody in the Fallsmead community-- neighbors, friends, and people we don’t even know yet. Anyone can use it. That’s why we want to take care of it. 
Take a book. 
If you see something you want to read, take it. Look inside and see who gave it; who else has read it. 
Share it. 
Return it to any Little Library or pass it on to a friend. 
Give books. 
Leave notes in them. Be a friend of all libraries by helping any way you can. Pay it Forward!
If you have any questions, please contact social@fallsmead.org.

At its January 2017 meeting, the Fallsmead Board approved new Driveway Expansion Guidelines for the neighborhood for use on an interim basis pending results from a survey of neighborhood driveways during the 2017 spring inspection.
Following are the Driveway Expansion Guidelines. These will be updated and made final after the ACC reviews the results of the driveway survey:

This week, Fallsmead.org was upgraded to a new version of the software that runs the website. Although most of the website still looks exactly the same, there are major changes to the Online Neighborhood Directory and in your personal "Your Profile" section:
  • Household users are now tied together through a levels system. Level 1 Members are the first members from each household to sign up for a fallsmead.org account. Level 2 Members are usually spouses, but can also include other adults who live in the same household. Level 3 Members are children who live in the household.
  •  ALL ADULT LEVEL 1 AND LEVEL 2 HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS NOW HAVE THEIR OWN ACCOUNTS as long as they are listed in the system and they have an email address in the system.
  • You can now pick and choose which individual fields you want to display for each member of your household who is listed in the online directory.
  • You can now add a profile picture for each member of your household.
Some of the changes that were made during the system upgrade require action on your part to make sure the transition from the old system to the new system was successful. PLEASE LOG IN TO YOUR FALLSMEAD.ORG ACCOUNT AND DO THE FOLLOWING (if you do not know your password, we will be sending everyone in the system a password reminder – this is also great for Level 2 users who have not used their new accounts yet!):

If you have attended a recent community meeting or have read the Fallsmead Forum, you know that the Architectural Control Committee (ACC) has been drafting guidelines for solar panel installations in the Fallsmead. The ACC's proposed guidelines, published in the last issue of the on-line Forum for community review and comment, were approved by the Board at its June meeting and are effective immediately. The guidelines comply with federal, state and local regulations and will be updated as those and the technology evolve. Similar guidelines have been successfully used in nearby communities.
A solar panel installation is an exterior addition as defined in the Covenants. Fallsmead residents should be aware that the ACC will use these guidelines in its review of any proposed solar panel installations. The guidelines should be  taken into account early in the planning of any installation. The ACC will work cooperatively with residents planning solar panel installations so that those installations are safe, minimize visibility to the extent practical without degrading performance significantly, and harmonious with Fallsmead's design and aesthetic.
Click here to see a copy of the guidelines. If you have any questions about the solar panel installation guidelines or their applicability, please contact the ACC at acc@fallsmead.org.

If you registered at Fallsmead.org and never heard back from anyone, please let us know at communications@fallsmead.org! Once we manually approve people (which we usually do within a few hours of people registering), the website automatically generates an email that includes your password.  You should have gotten this email within 24 hours of registering.

We suspect that some of these registration emails may have gotten lost in spam for some people, but this is something that we can easily fix as long as you let us know that it is a problem.

For any future registrants, if you don't hear back within 24 hours of registering, please let us know. Thanks!

We are really excited to introduce you to the new Fallsmead.org website!  We hope that this new website helps you keep up with what is going on in Fallsmead, and will be your go-to spot to answer all of your questions about Fallsmead.

One thing you will notice about the new website is that certain pages are now password protected in order to increase neighborhood security.  In order to access these password-protected pages and documents (as well as several other new features on the website, such as the Recipe Book and the Classifieds), you will have to first register on the site. 
In addition to allowing you access to the site's password-protected pages, registering will also allow you to opt in, or out, of the online Neighborhood Directory, and to set your preferences for the Neighborhood Email List.

The Fallsmead Citizens Association (FCA) was formed on February 19, 1975 to engage in any political or legal activities that might jeopardize the assets or tax-exempt status of the non-political Fallsmead Homes Corporation.

 While it was active, the FCA represented Fallsmead citizens on matters such as transportation (e.g., building of the I-270 Falls Road interchange), local development (e.g., building of the Fallsbend neighborhood and opposing a plan for a high-rise next to the Rockshire shopping center), and community matters (e.g., neighborhood stop signs, negotiating with Berger-Berman for expansion of Fallsmead, and negotiating volume discounts for smoke detectors).
