Welcome to Stoneybrooke, a subdivision of 250 single family homes built between 1969 and 1970 in Alexandria. Residents are encouraged but not required to join the Stoneybrooke Citizens Association. The $20 fee funds the community directory, monthly newsletters, social activities and the association’s new website. According to their website, the association is a great resource for local information about traffic and school initiatives; strong membership boosts their relationships with local politicians and other neighborhood associations. The Stoneybrooke Sentinel is a terrific avenue for residents—it includes articles from Supervisor Jeff McKay, neighborhood watch information, a roster of neighborhood babysitters, announcements, classified section and an event calendar. There is an e-mail list for interested residents; currently 100 families have signed up for this secure and convenient way to view messages and information about the development. The Plant Exchange is a community group where members can trade plants, seeds and bulbs, or make requests for items they are seeking. While Stoneybrooke does not have a community pool, residents are able to join the Virginia Hills pool, which has a swim team, the Tidal Wave. Virginia Hills is a subdivision off of Telegraph Road.
