COVENANTS


Blocking Roadways is Not Safe – BCA regularly receives concerns for roadways in the community being blocked off for play activity.  The Association, VDOT, and Loudoun County do not condone street play and advise residents that have concerns for blocked roadways to first approach the neighbors involved to directly resolve the concern. For unresolved concerns, we recommend contacting Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number 703-777-1021.  Placement of personal "Children at Play" signs is also discouraged, as they have been shown to create a false sense of security; at no time should these devices be placed in the roadway.
