About Us
 
Evermay Community Association and Our Evermay Neighborhood
 
The Evermay Community Association (“ECA”) was formed in 1969 as a voluntary, non-profit, educational and charitable homeowner association.  ECA was formed to advance the interests of the owners and residents in the Evermay subdivision, located in the Dranesville District, Fairfax County.  Over subsequent years, ECA established a record which continues to this day of many accomplishments as a result of strong support by Evermay residents and the dedicated work of its volunteer officers, directors and committee members.
 
In its activities, the Association is non-partisan and non-sectarian.  Membership in the Association is open to persons owning property in the Evermay subdivision. Upon payment of annual dues each household has one vote in matters submitted to the membership of the Association.  The Treasurer sends bills for the annual dues in early January for the fiscal year that begins on December 1.  Non-owner residents who pay the dues are entitled to participate in all Evermay activities, but do not have voting rights.
 
The mission and purposes of ECA are:
 
•       Administer and enforce the Evermay Restrictive Covenants;
 
•       Promote the civil, educational and social welfare of residents of Evermay;
 
•       Seek the cooperation of and cooperate with other organizations of similar purpose;
 
•       Maintain and improve Evermay as a residential center;
 
•       Promote public improvements; and
 
•       Encourage community beautification.
 
The implementation of these purposes is accomplished by volunteer members of the Association, or contracted for, utilizing funds of the Association, in the following ways:
 
•       Ensuring full compliance with and adherence to the spirit and explicit provisions of the Evermay Restrictive Covenants, which are legally binding on all Evermay Subdivision properties.
 
•       Promoting the safety and security of Evermay residents and their property.
 
•       Interfacing actively with local and regional government offices and other entities, to protect the community from any source of adverse impact.
 
•       Establishing entrance landscaping, including seasonal flowers, and maintaining these areas plus the areas bordering Evermay along Rt. 123.
