AROUND BRAMBLETON


INSIDE BCA  

Section Acceptance Inspections - The Association will be inspecting the common areas and related improvements for deficiencies in Section 21 and 22 in preparation of acceptance/turnover from the developer to the Association.  Residents with common area concerns in these areas of the community are asked to email CIP@Brambleton.org with a description of the concern and location.  Association staff will then inspect the concern and determine next action. 

Fall Fertilization - Common Areas in Sections 18, 24, 27 or 33 will receive the final round of fertilizer for this year starting Monday, November 6th.  This will be a combination of granular and liquid application, so please wait until it dries to venture back out onto the turf.  Once completed, the large application signs will be removed from the listed sections of the community. If they are still posted, then we are still working.  Contact Dave Rusch if you have questions or need more information.

COMMUNITY STANDARDS

Is it Time to Clean Your Siding? - Vinyl siding is low maintenance, but requires occasional cleaning to remove dirt, grime and debris that build up over time.  Cleaning also removes mold, mildew and chemical residues that can prematurely age, fade or discolor your siding.  Ideally, siding should be cleaned once a year, particularly in shady or damp areas where mold and mildew thrive.  If your siding is not shaded or damp, and it looks clean, you can probably reduce the frequency to every other year.  If you see green, it’s time to clean!

TALK OF THE TOWN CENTER


Candy Buy Back Program from November 1-6 - All donations will be provided to troops via Operation Gratitude.  Little Smiles and Costa Family Dentistry will buy your Halloween candy for $1 per pound, up to 10 pounds.  They will also donate $10 to the Step Sisters for every pound of candy donated.
