Upcoming March 1 Assessment Payment
The next quarterly assessment payment is due March 1st. We urge you to plan ahead to ensure your assessment payment is received on time due to the well-publicized delays with mail deliveries. We offer the following suggestions for paying your assessment:
- Pay your assessment early. Your payment will be processed and credited to your account. Advance payments are always welcome. Checks dated for a future date (post-dated) are not accepted and will be returned.
- Pay electronically through PayLease or your bank. PayLease can be accessed at our web site: LakeRidgeVA.com and select the Pay Online button. E-checks/electronic debit payments are free. Debit or credit card payments include a surcharge by PayLease. You can also make a debit/credit card payment by telephone by calling our office at 703-491-2154. A receptionist will take your payment information and process the payment with the included surcharge by PayLease.
- Drop off your check or money order (no cash) in our drop box which is located to the right of our office doors. This drop box is emptied daily.

Poisonous Plants in Virginia
If you enjoyed the Toxic Natives article in the January/February issue of Lake Ridge Today (p. 18), you should be happy to learn that a second edition of The Socrates Project – Poisonous Plants In Virginia – has been posted.
The 2nd edition adds an additional 14 plants to the online publication, bringing the total to 25 plants. Where the 1st edition focused on plants found in the Piedmont area, the 2nd edition made a conscious effort to include plants from all areas of the State. The booklet format has been enhanced in several ways:
- A more comprehensive section on each plant which includes clear descriptions of “look-alike” plants that may be mistaken for the poisonous plant
- Additional photographs to aid the reader in plant identification
- An expanded glossary of terms used to describe each plant, many of which may be unfamiliar to the general public
- An expanded bibliographic reference section, including links to relevant websites containing additional information
