Lake Christopher Homes Association
Lake Christopher Homes Association

Welcome!

The Lake Christopher community surrounds beautiful Lake Christopher in the Centerville District of Virginia Beach, Virginia. We are near the intersection of Indian River Road and Kempsville Road, about 1 mile from I-64 and Regent University. There are 361 homes and four private parks in the Lake Christopher community, surrounding our 60 acre private lake. Public schools serving Lake Christopher are Tallwood High School, Brandon Middle School, and Indian Lakes Elementary School.

The Lake Christopher Homes Association (LCHA) consists of every person who owns a lot in Lake Christopher. This association of homeowners, which is a corporation, has existed since 1974. There is a nine member Board of Directors which serves the association, and this nine member board is comprised of four officers; President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer; and five members-at-large.

News

 

The Easter Event has been cancelled.

 

The Plant Sale and Community Yard Sale are still scheduled to take place, at least for now.  Check back to see if there are any changes.

 

Although the city has closed most public parks, our private parks remain open to Lake Christopher residents and their guests only.  During this public health emergency, we must not allow our parks to become a magnet for groups while the rest of the community works to contain the virus' spread.  Please call Citywide if you observe large groups of non-residents at the parks

 

Social Distancing at the parks is required.  Lake Christopher Homes Association supports the government recommendation to practice social distancing, and to avoid gatherings of 10 or more people through April 30th to help contain the spread of coronavirus.  We rely on the common sense of our residents to give each other space when using the parks individually, as a family unit, or in groups less than 10.

 

Food trucks will be at Christopher Landing on select dates to give residents a neighborhood take-out option for meals during this time.  See the community facebook group page for dates and times, or contact the Social Committee; and remember to maintain social distancing while standing in line.

 

Check-in on your neighbors.  Some residents are self-isolating.  If you haven't seen them in awhile, give a call to see how they're doing.

 

Easter 2020 Egg Hunt

 

Due to government recommendations of social distancing and large group event cancellations, this year’s Easter Event at the Park (Originally scheduled for April 4th) has been cancelled.

 

The status of other events, such as the Community Yard Sale, will be posted on Facebook and the LCHA website.

Vandalism

 

In 2019 we saw an increase in acts of property damage and vandalism in our parks. We’ve had multiple instances of graffiti on the docks and structures, beer cans in the porta-potty, and ultimately the porta-potty thrown into the lake.


These are costly “pranks” which require repairs, cost additional fees, and in the case of the porta-potty, another round of water quality testing.  Often times (but not always) these acts are perpetrated by non-residents who shouldn’t be using the parks in the first place.

 

If you see something, call Citywide. Trust your instincts – let the Citywide patrol sort out the details. If a suspicious group at the park at night are indeed residents just enjoying the evening, they’ll welcome the Citywide visit!

 

Christopher Landing, Christoher Beach, Christopher Narrows and Christopher Woods are not public City parks.  They are for the exclusive use of Lake Christopher residents (homeowners & renters), and their accompanied guests.  They are maintained with funds from our association dues.

 

 

If you observe an issue at the parks, do not hesitate to contact:

 

•    Citywide Security, at 757-652-4467
•    The Police Non-Emergency number, at 757-385-5000
•    For an Emergency always call 911

 

Please contact a board member if you have questions or feedback.
