The Board also secured funding from Fairfax County Land and Water Conservation District for most of the costs of constructing the rain garden in the area between Lakeport Way and Lakespray Way that was experiencing considerable erosion. In addition, at the Board’s insistence, a contractor for Fairfax County paid for replanting Lakeport’s portion of the hill next to the RA path between Sunrise Valley Drive and the Lake Thoreau pool. The trees and shrubs there had been destroyed by storage of equipment used to build the sidewalk along Sunrise Valley Drive. Finally, the County repaired a storm drain cover on Lakespray Way, which will reduce the cost to repair the sidewalks as part of this year’s repaving project.
Lakeport homeowners should be pleased that Lakeport Cluster’s operating budget and reserve funds received a clean audit. In December, the management company sent all homeowners a copy of the 2021 operating budget, along with the explanation of how to pay the HOA assessment.
