Only in the Single Family Home section on non-fire lane side of street.
In the Townhome section, all parking is vertical as none of the streets are wide enough. Open curbs are all marked as fire lanes and must be kept open per fire codes. This also includes driveway aprons (although not marked in yellow).
Fairfax County specifies whether there can be curbside parking on County owned & maintained streets (John Thomas & Thomas Grant (Townhome side only) and Morning View Ln.).
Yes. If your car is leaking petroleum based fluids, such fluids can destroy the pavement and become a source of contamination of everybody’s environment. Your car then becomes a good candidate to be towed away from Island Creek premises.
If your car starts leaking fluids, please clean it up and place something under the car to absorb those fluids and to protect the pavement until you can get your car repaired.
All cars in Island Creek must be in compliance with State and Local car registration requirements (for the State where your car is registered).
Your car is your responsibility. This means your car must be inspected and have current tags, plates and current stickers and decals. Otherwise, your car can be towed (after being given notice) if it is not in compliance with the law.
Yes. Island Creek (like Fairfax County) considers a car abandoned if it sits in an open parking space without moving for at least 10 days.
If you have a car that you do not use, please consider getting rid of it or park it on a public street nearby (Thomas Grant and John Thomas Drives (townhome side only) or Morning View Dr.
If your are going to be out of town for a period of time greater then 7 days, it is a good idea to notify Island Creek Community Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org , so that your car will not be towed.
Parking spaces in Island Creek are at a premium. Please be considerate of your neighbors and do not “take over” or monopolize free parking spaces.
The towing company number is also listed on signs posted throughout the Community.
The towing company reports any vehicles they tow to the police. You may call the police non-emergency number at 703-691-2131 to determine whether your car was towed. If the police do not know about your missing vehicle, then something more nefarious may have happened to it.
No, you cannot. Paint is considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of at a County Disposal and Recycling Center (I-66 Transfer Station or I-95 Landfill).
The contractor will not collect any paint cans or trash bags with paint cans.
You can't hide it in the trash! After your garbage is collected, the truck compacts it. If your trash contains any paint , it will spray out everywhere leading to your residence and you will be charged for removing the paint from the street and/or sidewalk.
Paint that you can wash up with water is not considered to be hazardous waste. You can let it dry out, and the dispose it elsewhere; because the trash contractors will still not collect them!.
Paint that you have to clean up with mineral spirits (Paint Thinner, Turpentine, etc.) is considered hazardouswaste and you must dispose of it at the local landfill (Fairfax County hazardous trashdisposal).
Household garbage should be placed in a trashcan or a brown or black bag and tied securely. This helps discourage scavenging animals from tearing into the bags and scattering trash around the neighborhood.

VDOT maintains Morning View, John Thomas (on townhouse side) and Thomas Grant (townhouse side) only. As a reminder, VDOT does not get to secondary roads quickly, as their main focus during storms is to clear major roads and highways.
Island Creek contracts for snow removal on all other neighborhood streets (the Condo Streets are handled by a separate company). The Association does not clear or treat the common area sidewalks as the expense would be too costly. It is asked that each owner shovel and treat the sidewalk in front of their homes.
It is best to shovel the snow from your parking spot and sidewalks to the front of your space or to shovel/dump the snow to a grassy yard or common area. In the major snow event several years ago, residents who dumped snow in the street, not only caused a major safety concern, but cost the association and ultimately the homeowners a lot more money, as the snow had to be moved with a loader since it freezes and makes an ice mound! Creating long furrowed rows of snow beyond the parking spaces reduces the width of cleared roadways and eliminates the primary objective of creating two lanes of traffic. It also makes the snow turn into hard ice mounds, which makes it difficult for the snow plow to remove.
