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 they have been shown to create a false sense of security.

Don't miss the official kick-off of our inaugural winter season on Sunday, January 6th where you can visit your favorite vendors and meet new ones as well!
