  • Political Signs: Two (2) political signs, no larger than 2’x 2’, may be posted on a residential Lot. Signs may be posted up to 30 days prior to a pending election and must be removed within five (5) days after the election.
  • Signs shall not obstruct any traffic sight lines.
  • A sign displayed in a window and intended to be read from the exterior of the property must be reviewed and approved.
  • The sign is to be no larger than necessary to accommodate the proposed text.
  • Signs must be well constructed, with good quality materials and must be maintained in an orderly manner at all times.
  • Temporary signage is allowed to be displayed on any Lot for a maximum of 35 days in any calendar year.

Comprehensive Lot Inspections Starting in Section 6 - The Covenants Advisors will be conducting inspections in Section 6 beginning next week.  This section includes the townhomes on Magellan Square and Coronado Terrace.  In an effort to maintain Brambleton as one of the most architecturally pleasing and best maintained communities in the area, comprehensive exterior inspections of homes and lots are ongoing throughout the year. These inspections are done by section and note all exterior modifications on residential lots. Included as part of the comprehensive inspections is confirmation that proper documentation, such as an approved application, is on file with the Association. All inspections are performed by members of BCA staff. Staff does not enter fenced yards or access decks during these inspections.  In accordance with the Association’s enforcement policies, notice will be sent to provide time to correct items noted to be in violation of Brambleton’s governing documents or policies. If you have any questions, please contact the Covenants Advisors at 703-542-6263 or covenants@brambleton.org.
