COMMUNITY STANDARDS

Proper Storage of Play Equipment - BCA would like to share a friendly reminder that portable play equipment that is easily transportable by one person, such as soccer nets, bikes, or scooters, must be stored out of view of neighboring properties when not in use. Additional guidelines for play equipment can be found here. Guidelines for basketball hoops can be found here. If you have any questions, please contact the Community Standards Advisors at 703-542-6263 or communitystandards@brambleton.org.

Clotheslines/Wind Drying Devices - During this time of year, we often receive complaints regarding the hanging of laundry items outside to dry. Per the Design Guidelines, clotheslines or any similar apparatus for exterior drying of clothes are prohibited. Please refrain from using deck or porch railings to dry laundry outside your home.

Rain in the Drain - Brambleton participates in this important effort to help protect our local watershed. Please be sure to share with your family, friends, and contractors that nothing should be dumped into street drains. The dumping of paint, motor oil, grease, lawn chemicals, trash, and other materials into the storm drain system is strictly prohibited. Debris can also cause storm drains to become blocked, causing them to overflow onto adjacent streets and properties. More information on the county’s efforts can be found here. If you witness questionable discharge into storm drains, you are encouraged to report this activity by calling the Loudoun County Stormwater Hotline at 703-777-0117.
