INSIDE BCA


Beacon Crest Pool Opening Postponed - Due to this weekend's forecasted weather conditions, the opening of Beacon Crest Pool has been postponed to next weekend, May 18-19. Find all of the Brambleton pool information you need at www.brambletonhoa.com/pools.

Do You Have Your Bram Life Pass? - The Bram Life Pass (formerly known as our Pool Pass) is now so much more than just a pool pass. It is our community’s pass for fun and discounts that will positively impact you and your family’s lifestyle here in Brambleton. It will get you into our pools and tennis courts, provide Brambleton-exclusive discounts at neighborhood restaurants and local businesses, and provide reduced or free entry at Brambleton’s larger events. Click here and visit the Bram Life Pass page for more information.
  • The Bram Life Pass (pool pass) is good for life as long as you haven't moved or changed addresses. Passes created before the Bram Life Pass rebranding are still active and do not need to be updated unless your information has changed.
  • Residents can swap out their old pool passes for the new Bram Life Pass at no charge until Friday, May 24th. After that date, there will be a $5.00 per pass reprint charge.
  • Want to beat the lines and get your passes as easily as possible? Email hoa@brambleton.org with the required documents and photos, then let us know if you would like to pick up your completed passes at our office or have them mailed to your address. It’s that simple!
  • Red, White & BRAM: If you bring your Bram Life Pass to the Red, White & BRAM festival, your entry fee is only $5. Entry is $10 without a pass. Persons aged 2 and over must have a valid pass in order to receive the discount.
Townhome Grounds Maintenance: Trent Grove Herbicide Final NoticeThe Association’s contractor will be selectively applying small amounts of RoundUp within the next 7-14 days on residential lots participating in the townhome grounds maintenance program. A 2-3” strip of grass will be sprayed to assist with trimming and reduce the potential of damage to property. This herbicide will be sprayed around fences, a/c units, decks/stairs, and other areas that can be damaged by trimmers. Impacted owners can opt out of this service by completing this form and emailing it to operations@brambleton.org. If you have questions regarding this program, please contact operations@brambleton.org.

It will take approximately two weeks to treat the entire community. Weather can impact this schedule.
