Potomac Falls Homeowners Association

Founded in the spring of 1968, the Potomac Falls Homeowners Association is a nonprofit corporation, whose programs and services are supported through annual membership dues. Every household in the neighborhood is eligible, though not required, to become an Association member. The association is run by an 11-person Board of Directors, which is elected by current Association members. We invite all neighbors to become members and get involved in the association’s activities. Most homeowners do.


The primary responsibilities of the board are to manage the following:


Neighborhood Appearance

  • Common-area maintenance and landscaping.
  • Mowing the County property all along Falls Road.
  • Entrance plantings, irrigation, and lighting.
  • Stonework and street sign maintenance and renovation.

  • A private security firm provides an extra measure of peace of mind to residents, even though Potomac (and particularly Potomac Falls) is known as a very safe, low-crime community.
  • Security service patrols the neighborhood each day and night at variable and undisclosed times.
  • Security car with flashing lights during the patrol of the neighborhood.
