Highlight on Design Guidelines – The addition of new exterior lighting requires review and approval prior to installation. Proposed replacement or additional fixtures must be compatible in style and scale with the applicant's house. Exterior light fixtures for attached homes must be maintained in the original style, material, quality, and color as originally provided by the builder. Exterior lighting, including motion sensors, flood lights, and entrance lights shall be directed downward and not outside or off of the applicant's property. Proposed additional lighting shall not be approved if it will result in an adverse visual impact to adjoining neighbors because of location, wattage, or other features.  A copy of the Design Guidelines  for exterior lighting can be viewed on our website. Also note that the Design Guidelines are in the process of revision, and staff and the Committee welcome any comments and suggestions for revisions.  If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Stulga at designreview@brambleton.org or call 703-542-6263.
