Info for New Residents (and long-timers!)

image137

Welcome to the neighborhood!

Immediate Needs: Check the Services Providers page for info on utilities, trash, cable, and more.  The Essential  Shopping page has information on grocery stores, pharmacies, and more.

Many of the residents of the Hunt are very long-time residents, including some original owners who have been here since the late 1960s and early 1970s and raised families. Your neighbors will be great sources of information on schools, shopping, medical care, etc., etc. Get to know them! 


One great way is by attending neighborhood functions--typically a picnic in the late summer and a dinner in the spring, the latter being the time when new Board members are elected for the year. There is also an Easter Egg hunt for the kids and ad hoc gatherings from time to time. Homeowners are always welcome to attend our HOA board meetings, which are announced via the list-serv, and you are encouraged to become involved!

Please send your suggestions for items to be included on this page (or anywhere on the website) via an email to the Webmaster!   New Residents: if you have recently purchased a home in the Hunt, whether you have moved in or not, and would like to be added to the list-serv, please email the Webmaster.  P.S. Welcome!

Fairfax County Public Schools are consistently among the best in the nation.  Schools for our children in The Hunt are Langley High School, Cooper Middle School, and Spring Hill Elementary.  See the US News and World Report's high school national rankings for the latest rankings.

Recycling

The county also has a recycling center for all items.  This facility is huge and takes in used oil, batteries, newspapers, electrical items, etc.

List-serv

The Hunt operates a list-serv to allow residents of the Hunt to easily send a single message that reaches everyone in the Hunt. If you are not on the list-serv and wish to be, simply send an email to the webmaster with your email address to be added so you can use this helpful tool and be "in the know."  More information on list-servs is available in the Technical Info section of this website.

Community Involvement

There are many ways to become involved in your community, starting right here in the Hunt as a member of the Board!  Please contact any member of the Board if you are interested in serving as a Board member or an officer.  Other ways include: 

  • Contact Jim Isler about grounds work and help keep our common areas beautiful!
  • Donate recycled newspapers and clothing at Cooper Middle School.  The proceeds from this collection  benefit the McLean Trees Committee and purchased the trees planted on  the median of Dolley Madison Blvd.
  • Join the McLean Citizens Association.  For over 100 years the MCA has been the unofficial town council for McLean. There are hundreds of McLean residents who choose to be members of the MCA in order to ensure that the overall Association is funded sufficiently to advocate its many interests: county schools, youth issues, state and local budget and taxation issues, local transportation issues, planning and zoning issues, parks and recreation issues, aging issues, plus appointing representatives to various McLean civic and legislative positions. The MCA is truly the heartbeat of McLean; the greater the membership, the greater the impact and voice all member associations have in determining policy for our community.
