For the purpose of membership eligibility, the association types include: a civic association, a community association, a property owners association, a homeowners association (HOA), or a condominium unit owners association.

Every citizens’ association in the Mount Vernon Magisterial District is eligible for membership provided the association is organized and operated for nonpartisan civic activity and no substantial part of its objective is the promotion of commercial enterprise.

Fort Belvoir and George Washington 

Did you know that an MVCCA resolution* could result in an important historical finding?

Evidence of George Washington’s Dogue Run Farm Earthen Berm Fence likely dating to ca 1797 has been identified and recorded on an undeveloped property in the Mount Vernon District. Preliminary findings are that this earthen berm fence is recommended eligible for the National Register.
