Are you wondering whom to call to complain or inquire about a problem in our neighborhood? Since Mt. Vernon Manor Citizens Association (MVMCA) is not a Homeowners Association, MVMCA has no enforcement authority over homeowner activities, the appearance or condition of homes, nor maintenance responsibility for infrastructure (roads, bridges, parks, streetlights, sewer lines, plowing),etc. The only exception is the three neighborhood entranceways/signs and gardens along Old Mill Road that we do maintain.
MVMCA is simply a non-profit organization of citizen volunteers who share a common interest in trying to do what it can to support and improve the quality of life in our neighborhood. So who does have responsibility? Fairfax County, or in some cases, the state. For almost any concern, Fairfax County has an office that handles that issue.
