Homeland Village Community Association hires a private
contractor annually to perform “association” roadway and sidewalk snow clearing.
The lead walks for the condominium units are also cleared under this contract.
Parking spaces are cleared only if they are empty and the plow has easy access.
Town home and detached home property owners are responsible for clearing their
own lead walks (and driveways in the case of detached homes). Please realize
that Homeland Village is a large property and it takes time for the contractor
to clear the snow from all the roadways and walkways. Just because your walkway
has not been cleared, does not mean the contractor isn’t working on the
property. Our basic contract calls for the contractor to begin clearing within 2
to 3 hours after the snow has stopped when accumulation is over 2 inches. If an
extraordinary amount of time has passed (5 to 6 hours) and there has been no
snow clearing effort in your area, or you have a special concern, contact the
Community Manager. During extraordinary snow events the clearing time may
increase, there will be interim clearings and “snow-holding” areas will be
utilized (please refer to the community map of snow holding areas). Your
patience, understanding, cooperation and help are appreciated. If you are an
able-bodied resident and have elderly or disabled neighbors, please make an
extra effort to help them. Montgomery County Highway Services (240-777-7623) is
responsible for clearing the county roads (Homeland Drive, Morningwood Drive and
Rocky Ridge Lane).
