Lake Powell Forest is situated in Virginia, on the tidewater peninsular, close to the James River, half way between the old Colonial Capital of Virginia, Williamsburg and the first permanent English Settlement at Jamestown.

Building started about ten years ago, in a cleared area of the forest. There are just over one hundred houses built with the intention of maintaining as much of the forest as possible. Most roads, in the sub-division have conservation corners where natural habitat is encouraged by the careful management of natural plants and trees. There are over 1.7 miles of walking trails through the forest, maintained by community volunteers, through the Lake Powell Forest Home Owners’ Association and a small area of forest, outside of the environmental protected area that is maintained as a community park.
There are several groups that meet regularly such as the Book Club, Wine Tasting Evenings, Movie Club and Dine Around Club.
There is a residents only area in this website, for which a general residents’ user name and password are required for access:
Residents – Where important or just useful information can be found such as Board Minutes, other Board of Director information and Official Documents.
This website is run independently of the Home Owners’ Association.Read more »

They will not be able to make these days up. The contractor will collect all recyclables that residents have out on their next scheduled day, which will be on March 12, 2015 and March 13, 2015 (Blue Week – Thursday and Friday). It is recommended that overflow recyclables be placed in a cardboard box and placed either on top of or beside the recycling cart. PLEASE DO NOT USE PLASTIC BAGS (thank you!)”

12.06.2014 Walking Trail Maintenance
From the HOA “In order to perform maintenance on the walking trails, piles of crushed stone will be placed at a couple of trailhead entrances along Queen Bishop Lane. These piles of stone will likely cover small portions of the sidewalks for a relatively short period of time until the stone is distributed to the trails. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
