Irongate Way and Community Drive are Prince William County thoroughfares. They are controlled by Prince William County, Second Irongate Community Association and the Irongate Community Association. Irongate Way and Community Drive thoroughfares do NOT allow reserved parking spaces to be allocated. Resident and guest parking is allowed in areas not designated as “ NO PARKING” or “FIRELANE”. E Court is controlled jointly with Irongate Community association. Specific areas are assigned no parking areas for the safety and well being of ALL residents within our community.


All areas designated as “ NO PARKING” are plainly marked. These areas are designated as no parking zones for the safety of our community. Areas that are always considered no parking zones are fire lanes, court entrances, areas immediately surrounding mailboxes, area around fire hydrants and other areas determined to create visibility problems when blocked. Courts also have areas designated as “FIRELANE” to insure that in an emergency, rescue personal can reach all areas of our community. ANY VEHICLE PARKED IN A FIRELANE OR NO PARKING AREA CAN BE TOWED AT THE OWNER’S EXPENSE.


These parking regulations are enforced by the Second Irongate Community Association. REFUSAL TO COMPLY WITH ANY REGUALTION CAN RESULT IN VEHICLE BEING TOWED IMMEDIATELY AT OWNER'S EXPENSE. Vehicles that violate these regulations can be towed ONLY by the Second Irongate Community Association.


Parking facilities controlled by the Second Irongate Community Association are for the exclusive use of Second Irongate community residents and their guests. Each property has a reserved parking space assigned that is plainly marked “RESERVED” and the unit number. Unmarked spaces are for resident and guest parking ONLY, as available. Each property is issued two identifications tags that must be placed on the interior of the vehicle, visible from the exterior. It is recommended that the identification tags be placed on the inside rear view mirror. The tag provides identification of the vehicle owner. ANY VEHICLE THAT OWNERSHIP CANNOT BE IDENTIFIED CAN BE CONSIDERED TRESPASSING AND IS SUBJECT TO TOWING! It is the responsibility of the owner to insure that vehicles are identified correctly with an identification tag. These identification tags are only for use within the residential parking courts of this community. Vehicles parked on Irongate Way and Community Drive thoroughfares DO NOT require identification tags. Identification tags are NOT parking permits. Their exclusive use is for the identification of the vehicle owner.

Second Irongate Community Association Declarations of Convenants, Conditions and Restrictions (X: 7) prohibits boats, trailers, or other vehicles except as classified as passenger cars or station wagons from regularly parking in streets, driveways, yards, parking areas or common areas. This regulation shall define passenger car as any vehicle not in excess of 10,000 pounds, seven feet wide, twenty feet long eight feet high. Any attachments, equipment or supplies that overhang the vehicle’s primary body shall be considered part of the total vehicle length, width and height. This includes ladders, pipes, lumber, snow blades, and snow blowers, etc. NO VEHICLE SHALL REVENT ACCESS TO ANY OF THE PARKING FACILITIES! VIOLATORS CAN BE TOWED IMMEDIATELY!

Two identification tags are issued to each property free of charge, NO EXCEPTIONS. Identification tags are replaceable after being lost, misplaced or stolen, but not reported stolen, for a fee of $100.00 each. Identification tags that are reported stolen with a vehicle or by unlawful breaking & entering with a valid police report on file will be replaced free of charge. Any stolen identification tag located shall be reported to the Prince William County Police as stolen property. It is the responsibility of the owner to insure the security and use of their assigned identification tags. Vehicles parked in spaces marked reserved MUST be identified with the proper identification tag for that house. Vehicle identification tags MUST be transferred from resident to resident upon transfer of the property or arrival of new tenants. Identification tags are provided by the Second Irongate Community Association and are considered transferable property like house keys, mailbox keys, etc. Use of identification tags eliminates the need for vehicle registration of permanent vehicle stickers when vehicles are transferred. The owner of record for any identified vehicle can be located by the serial number of the identification tag assigned.

Any vehicle parked on common areas including court parking lots without current state inspection, license plates or which otherwise appear abandoned will be reported to the Prince William County Police and will be towed.

Covered vehicles MUST have the identification tag inside the vehicle AND be parked in the assigned NUMBERED RESERVED parking space. The identification tag number may be displayed on the cover of the vehicle, if desired. The Second Irongate Community Association reserves the right to inspect ANY vehicle, covered or not, using any of the parking facilities.

NO PIGGYBACK PARKING IS ALLOWED! Piggyback parking cannot be accomplished without blocking more than one parking space or preventing other vehicles from safely using the parking facilities. Reserved parking spaces for unoccupied homes are NOT to be used by other residents. The reserved parking space MUST remain available for the real estate agents, contractors, owners or other authorized use.

PLEASE obey the speed limits. This is a residential community with many children of all ages. We are one of only a few communities that have not installed speed bumps to control vehicle speeds. Help keep our community safe for ALL of our residents.


Motorcycles may be parked crosswise in your NUMBERED RESERVED parking space with a car parked behind it provided the automobile AND the motorcycle do not exceed twenty feet in length. Motorcycles MUST comply with ALL other parking regulations. This is the ONLYexception made for motorcycles. Motorcycles parked on common greens or sidewalks may be towed. Motorcycles that cannot be safely identified using an identification tag MUST be parked sideways in front of the assigned numbered reserved parking space—no further identification is required.


Boats, trailers and similar items may NOT be parked in the residential parking areas. A special parking facility is available between Farragut Court and Court 6 on Irongate Way. This facility is available for use by all of the Irongate community. Vehicles MUST be registered with Second Irongate Community Association. Please contact the Second Irongate RV Lot Committee Chairperson to apply for registration.


Routine vehicle maintenance that does not require the use of special hoists or other large equipment may be performed. These repairs should be performed during daylight hours ONLYand should NOT encroach upon adjoining parking spaces. Vehicle repairs may only be performed in the owner’s reserved parking space. Unmarked spaces are NOT for repairs or maintenance of any kind. Repairs that cannot be completed during the same daylight period should have any attached parts or assemblies secured. All parts that are not attached to the vehicle under repair should be stored inside or under the vehicle and should not protrude beyond the main body of the vehicle. A VEHICLE SHALL NOT BE LEFT UNATTENDED WHILE BEING SUPPORTED UPON JACKS, BLOCKS, JACKSTANDS, ETC....

NO SPRAY PAINTING of vehicles will be tolerated. Paint over spray cannot be controlled in any open-air environment. When changing fluids in any vehicle, take appropriate precautions to prevent any spillage. It is your responsibility to clean up any contamination that may occur during vehicle maintenance or any other activity. Residents should use environmentally safe disposal methods to dispose of all vehicle fluids.


No vehicle may be driven or parked on common greens, sidewalks or any other area not specifically designated for use by vehicles, including mini bikes, mopeds, motorcycles, three wheelers, etc.

Common greens, playgrounds, sidewalks and parking facilities are NOT for commercial purposes or any other purpose of financial gain, without obtaining written permission from the Second Irongate Community Association. This restriction shall include car washing, automobile repairs, yard sales, dances, picnics or any other activity not restricted to Irongate residents.


If a vehicle has been towed from the Second Irongate Community, the owner should contact the Prince William County Police Department, 703-792-6500. All towing enforcement is performed according to the PW County regulations and the PW County police are notified prior to ANYvehicle being towed by the Second Irongate Community Association. The PW County police can provide retrieval information concerning any vehicle towed from our community by the Second Irongate Community Association.
