Improve Lighting in Lakeport: In the winter when it is darker longer, it is important to turn on your outdoor lights at night to help ensure the safety of our residents and the security of our property. One way to further the goal of safe lighting is for residents to leave their exterior lights on at night, especially those in units with post lights, which according to long-time Lakeport residents used to be standard practice. This is of course voluntary but doing this one small thing would be a gracious contribution to the overall safety and attractiveness of our community.
Report Suspicious Activity: If you see suspicious activity, don’t confront anybody but instead call the Fairfax County Police non-emergency number, 703-691-2131 (use this number also to report vandalism or any other crime that has already occurred). The police request that even if you just have a “gut feeling” something is wrong, you notify them with as many details as possible. It is helpful if you can also take photos unobtrusively. Police will be dispatched (or you may be able to provide a report over the phone). Also notify Lakeport’s Neighborhood Watch coordinator James Pan at email@example.com. Please pay special attention to suspicious activity or sounds near the Lakeport dock, in the woods, or at night.
Drive Slowly: Neighborhood kids continue to play outside on sidewalks and in the streets, especially during snow. Please remember to drive slowly and keep your eyes out for children (and other pedestrians).https://www.lakeportcluster.org/p/hoa-fee-payments-lakeport-cluster-hoa.html.

Maintenance of the Exterior of Your Home: If you make any changes to the exterior of your home, be sure to check Lakeport Standards, and if none exists, you should read the relevant RA Guideline.
