Potomac Falls is a premier neighborhood in the heart of Potomac, Maryland. Its 263 homes, set on minimum 2-acre lots along tree-lined streets, define gracious estate living in a family-friendly community. The peaceful neighborhood borders the beautiful C&O National Park and yet is only one mile from Potomac Village and close to the Nation's Capital.
The Potomac Falls Homeowners Association (PFHA) is a voluntary association comprised of neighbors who have a common interest in preserving the security, beauty, and sense of community that exists in this extraordinary neighborhood. The PFHA is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors and is a nonprofit corporation, whose programs and services are supported through annual membership dues. Every household in the neighborhood is eligible to become a PFHA member, and all neighbors are invited and encouraged to join and get involved in the association’s activities.
PFHA assures that the neighborhood’s tranquility, beauty, security, and friendliness are maintained through several standing initiatives:
- The iconic white brick walls at the three neighborhood entrances welcome residents and visitors to Potomac Falls. The entrances and other common areas are overseen by a landscaping services provider hired and managed by the Board. At various times of the year, and cyclically throughout the years, the landscaper's work includes all plantings, irrigation, and lighting as well as stonework and street sign maintenance and renovation.
- While Potomac is known as a very safe, low-crime community, Potomac Falls employs the services of a private security firm to provide an extra measure of peace of mind to residents. The security service patrols the neighborhood each day and night at variable and undisclosed times.
- Long-standing social events and community activities are enjoyed by members of PFHA. Many of these are traditions in the neighborhood, dating back for decades. Others have been added more recently and have been welcomed as new and fun ways for neighbors to connect or re-connect in a friendly, casual way. Events include an annual Labor Day picnic, a Halloween “Spooktacular” party for adults, winter coffee socials, Driveway “Happy Hour” get-togethers during warmer summer months, and an annual holiday cookie exchange party.
