Wildlife Reminder:

Since we are lucky enough to live so close to nature we of course are bound to have some animal visitors. That includes snakes. Love ’em or hate ’em…we got ’em! When in doubt, walk away but here are some tips to keep you informed and safe.

  • Virginia is home to three types of black snakes. The Eastern King Snake, Black Rat Snake, and Northern Racer. All are non-venomous snakes and do a lot to benefit us. They keep the rodent population down and the Eastern King Snake works to keep the venomous snake population down. 
  • If you see a snake, stop and keep a safe distance. Give the snake room to move away on its own.
  • Do not try to handle a snake. A snake will bite if provoked, so do not handle them.
  • When walking or hiking, stay on trails, sidewalks and cleared pathways. 
  • Wear boots or closed shoes and long pants when working outdoors or walking in wooded areas.
  • Wear leather gloves when handling brush and debris.
  • Use a flashlight if walking at night in areas where snakes might be present.
  • Keep dogs on leashes and pet cats indoors to reduce their chances of encountering a snake.
  • If you find a sick or injured snake, contact the police non-emergency line at (703) 691-2131 to be connected with Animal Control. If you are bitten by a snake that you believe could be venomous, seek emergency medical attention immediately.

Communication Guide

Hello Cardinal Square,
The Board would like to provide a new resource for residents. A guide to communication in Cardinal Square. We hope this guide will help clarify who to contact for specific requests and concerns and enhance efficiency and responsiveness for the community.  Not all issues are included in the document but we have attempted to include the most common ones. 

How You Can Help

Here are some ways you can help keep the community in good shape (and save money!). The more we can all help out, the less outside help we'll need. This will help keep our dues down, and having a beautiful and safe community will help keep the home values up!
 
Trash & Recycling 
Trash pick up - Mon. & Thurs. AM
Recycling pick up - Wed. AM
 
Trash & recycling should not be put out until after 6 p.m. the night before. As always, please be sure to secure your waste when packing it so that it does not spill out. Please follow these requirements in order to help keep our neighborhood looking beautiful and clean.
 
Please note that only trash is picked up on Monday mornings. Recycling pick up does not occur until Wednesday morning. If you are placing boxes or other items that look like recycling out on Monday, please place it in a trash bag so that it gets picked up.
 
Pet Leash & Clean Up 
For safety purposes, all dogs  must be on leashes when walking in the community. Please note that Fairfax County has strict leash laws for dogs. Additionally, pets must be cleaned up after in the neighborhood for sanitary purposes. If you notice any violations, please notify the Board.
 
Community Safety 
Here are some helpful safety and awareness tips:
  • Please be sure to keep vehicles locked and do not leave valuables inside.
  • Lock home doors and windows.
  • Don't hide keys under rugs or planters.
  • Contact the police if you see any suspicious behavior.
