Fallsmead Community Garage Sale
August 28, 2021
After a long delay we are planning our Community Garage Sale for Saturday and Sunday, September 11th and 12th. Start time is 8am. There is no cost for your participation but to be on the map Lucy Hayden will need your information no later than Tuesday, September 7th. Please email her at L123rg@aol.com
with your address, any items you want to highlight in the listing, and which days you will be open. You do not have to be listed on the map to participate but it does draw attention to your sale. The maps will be given out the morning of the sale at first garage sale on Fallsmead Way and at other locations throughout development. Ads will be posted in all of the internet yard sale sites.
New Pool Entry Location
August 7, 2021
Due to Montgomery County’s latest indoor mask policy, rather than entering the pool through the restrooms, please enter the pool through gate on the pavilion side, similar to what we did last year.
Lap Lane Reservations No Longer Needed at the Pool
June 16, 2021
News from the Pool Committee: Reservations are no longer needed for the lap lanes at the Fallsmead Pool. Swimmers may return to sharing a lap lane with others without COVID-related limitations on the number of swimmers per lane. Starting June 16th, the pool is open at 11am and will have additional lap lanes available until noon on weekdays.
Tennis Court Reservation Process Change
March 21, 2021
The Reservations page
for the Fallsmead tennis courts was changed so that reservations can only be made when you are logged into the Fallsmead.org website as a resident. This was done to prevent non-residents from reserving the Fallsmead courts. The process is the same otherwise, and you will be sent the gate combination via email when you make your reservation. A reminder that you must register for each use of the courts
, and the combination will be changed frequently.
If you find that you no longer need a reservation that you made, please log on and delete your reservation so that the courts will be available for other Fallsmead residents. To do this when logged in, go to the Reservations page
and click “My Reservations” on the upper right side and then click “delete” next to the reservation you no longer need.
Please contact the Racket Sports Committee via the Contact Us page
if you have any questions.
Trucks in Fallsmead
January 21, 2021
The Board of Directors adopted in December 2020 a new "Overnight Garaging of Trucks & Commercial Vehicles Rule & Regulation" regarding the interpretation of Article VII, Section 4 of the Covenants that address overnight parking of commercial vehicles and trucks to define the terms “commercial vehicles” and “trucks” as used in the Covenants.
Under the new Rule and Regulation, the following vehicles are required to be garaged overnight:
- Commercial vehicles;
- Vehicles with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) rating of 8,500 pounds or greater; and
- Any vehicle with a GVW rating under 8,500 pounds with an exposed flat/cargo bed, and/or physical divider between the passenger cab area and the other portion of the vehicle, unless the flat/cargo bed is covered with a fitted and intact covering, such as a tonneau cover or cap no higher than the cab, provided the covering is used to cover the flat/cargo bed overnight, or the flat/cargo bed is kept empty overnight.
Trucks as defined in the new Rule and Regulation with a GVW under 8,500 do NOT have to be garaged overnight if they have a cover over their cargo bed or their truck bed is empty.
