AROUND BRAMBLETON



INSIDE BCA  

Construction Activity in the Town Center and Area South of Sport&Health - During July and August, land development and construction activity will continue in the Town Center.  Please use caution and do not enter into construction areas.  There will be periods of blasting that will allow for installation of underground utilities.  Steps are being taken to reduce any negative impact on residents.  Please click here for more information.  We appreciate your patience as the Town Center enters into its final stages of completion.  

Parking Space Striping on Recently Seal Coated Streets – BCA and its contractors will be striping town home parking spaces on streets that were recently seal coated.  Parking in these spaces will not be permitted during the scheduled time.  Fire lanes will also be repainted.  Vehicles parked in the spaces will be relocated by tow trucks.  The schedule is below (subject to change due to weather):


  • Section 16 (Eversole, Redstone, Rockslide and all other adjacent streets) and Pecos parking lot – Parking spaces will be closed on Friday 7/8 and Saturday 7/9
  • Belmont Trace (Connie Marie, Franklin Benjamin, Patrick Wayne, and all other adjacent streets) - Parking spaces will be closed on Monday 7/11.

If you have questions, please email CIP@brambleton.org.


Comment Period:  Dragonfly Park on Legacy Park Drive – The park was constructed in 2002 and is starting to show its age.  In an effort to keep our community well maintained and current, the Facilities and Grounds committee and the BCA staff have worked together to create a conceptual plan that enhances the park's vista of the lake, while incorporating more passive and native elements into the park.  Please take a minute to review the plan and provide any comments or feedback to CIP@brambleton.org by July 18, 2016.

Unless otherwise specified, work may include asphalt repair, concrete marking, break and repair; marking, or digging and installation of street lights. Work typically begins in the early morning and is complete by the early afternoon. In addition to the ongoing development in the community, for the week of 7/11/16, bond release activity may occur in the following sections (see site map for locations):
