COMMUNITY STANDARDS

Blocking Roadways for Play is Not Safe - BCA regularly receives concerns about community roadways being blocked off for play activity. The Association, VDOT, and Loudoun County do not condone street play and advise concerned residents to first approach the neighbors involved to directly resolve the concern. For unresolved concerns, we recommend contacting the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number (703-777-1021). Placement of personal "Children at Play" signs in roadways or common areas is also discouraged, as these signs have been shown to create a false sense of security.
 
Proper Storage of Waste Containers - Please remember that all trash containers and recycling bins should be removed from the streets, walkways, or exterior portions of the lots following pickup on scheduled trash removal days. Trash containers and recycling bins are not permitted to be stored in a location visible from a neighboring property. Additional information on the Association's trash services can be found here. Bulk pickups can be arranged with Republic Services by emailing them at brambleton@republicservices.com. If you have any questions, please call 703-542-6263 or email communitystandards@brambleton.org.


TALK OF THE TOWN CENTER

Parking Updates in the Brambleton Town Center - Effective Sunday, July 1st, 15 minute parking only signs will be installed along the retail side of Brambleton Plaza. This will allow quick access for visitors and tenants at the store fronts.

Rhino Chasers Run Club - Our Rhino Chasers Run Club is back! Join us every Tuesday evening at Lost Rhino Retreat starting at 6 PM. Take your pick of a 1-mile, 3-mile, or 5-mile run, then come back to the bar/patio to enjoy beers and dinner. All run club members receive 10% off their check!
