Street Sweeping - BCA will begin its annual spring street sweeping on all Brambleton streets. The sweeping will remove sand from streets in an effort to reduce the amount of debris that ends up in our streams, ponds, and other waterways. Street sweeping will begin on Monday, March 18th and will continue for approximately 3 weeks. Sweeping will occur daily as weather conditions permit. Townhome streets will be the first streets serviced. Residents are asked to assist with the sweeping process by taking the following actions:
  • Park vehicles in garages and driveways so that the sweeper can service the entire street. 
  • Blow or sweep any sand on driveway aprons and sidewalks into the street. 
  • Blow sand off of the concrete curb and gutter portion of the street to expedite service, but do not place sand into piles on the street.
Questions pertaining to sweeping can be sent to Isaiah at operations@brambleton.org.

Nothing, including excavated materials (grass clippings, turf, dirt, sand, rocks, etc.), may be dumped in any wooded areas, common areas, or wetlands. When planning a project, BCA recommends that you review the plans with your contractor for proper placement and storage of construction materials and for the proper disposal of debris in order to avoid costly delays or cleanup.

To remedy encroachments on common areas, BCA will take appropriate enforcement action. This may include assessments for the cost of removal or restoration, additional charges, or other sanctions permitted by the Association's governing documents or law.
