Budget Meeting
The board will discuss the budget for 2021 on Sep 22 at 6:30 via Zoom. Owner are invited to join.
Herbicide, Litter, Bulk Trash
Blade Runners will apply a herbicide, Pylex, to turf this week, weather permitting. Pylex is used for post emergent control of broadleaf and grass weeds. Residents and pets should not walk on the turf until the product has dried. If weather requires rescheduling the application of Pylex, signs at the front and back entrances will be updated. Please refer to the attachment and the contact page at Bladerunners.com for more information. 
 
Also...
  • Please continue doing your part to help the community look good! Dispose of cigarette butts, candy, food and trash; do not leave them in the common areas. Littered food and candy can attract ants. Picking up cigarette butts and items that may have touched one's mouth can be hazardous to vendors and staff.
  • Please remember that furniture or similar bulk items cannot be put out for normal trash pickup. You must contact Capitol Services at (703) 998-5860 to schedule a bulk pickup.
Landscape Rejuvenation & Watering Help
You may have noticed that our 2020 rejuvenation areas have experienced a major facelift. Tired, aging bushes and plantings have been removed and replaced. Overgrown areas are now neat and tidy. We have open areas instead of plantings that became crowded over time. While most of the rejuvenation work is finished, there are still a few bushes to be planted and areas to be sodded. And although the hot, dry summer weather has not been kind to our new plants, Blade Runners assures us that they will replace any plants that die as a result of these conditions. Any assistance you can provide in keeping the new plants watered is greatly appreciated.
Board Meeting
The board will hold its monthly meeting via Zoom on Wednesday, Aug 12, at 7 pm. See the agenda and call-in information.
Update
A swimming pool breach, seeds from China, and severe weather preparations are topics of the Aug 3 update.

Food Donations Needed
Covid-19 has been devastating for financially vulnerable members of our community. Please help 2,400 Arlingtonians have dignified access to food by donating the most needed foods to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). Drop off box: 2568 South Arlington Mill Dr, Unit C (Windgate II). The most needed foods: canned tuna and chicken, canned soups, canned vegetables, canned tomatoes, and peanut butter (in plastic jars). Low sodium versions are preferred, where applicable, and please, NO GLASS CONTAINERS. Learn more at www.afac.org.
Landscape Rejuvenation Begins
