COMMUNITY STANDARDS

Design Review - The next meeting for Design Review will be on Monday, July 8th. Applications can be submitted via email to designreview@brambleton.org. If you have any questions regarding the design review process or guidelines, please visit our website or call 703-542-6263.

Parking Considerations - BCA regularly receives inquiries about parking in the community. Brambleton’s Board of Directors has established a vehicle policy, and county parking ordinances are enforced by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. We encourage residents to consider how parking impacts their neighbors, and we offer the following suggestions to be more neighborly:

  • Use your garage and driveway as a first option rather than parking on the street or in open visitor spaces.
  • Allow some distance when parking near a driveway. Parking too close to or opposite a driveway can make it difficult for residents to navigate around your car.
  • While an overflow of guests can lead to parking up and down a street, encourage guests to use the space in front of your house first.
  • Understand that you do not own the public parking spot in front of your house and it is first come, first served.
The following should be reported to LCSO for enforcement: 
  • Parking across sidewalks or blocking sidewalk ramps  
  • Parking close to stop signs, intersections, or fire hydrants
  • Expired tags/inspection stickers, illegal parking, and abandoned or suspicious vehicles

The LCSO non-emergency number is 703-777-1021. Contact communitystandards@brambleton.org if you have questions or need more information.

Pet Waste Removal - Please be a considerate neighbor and pick up and dispose of your pet’s waste. It is unsightly, unsanitary, and harmful to the environment to allow the waste to remain. There are several pet waste receptacles with bag dispensers located throughout Brambleton. Removal and disposal of waste is part of our Pet Policy as well as a Loudoun County Ordinance, whether on your own property or in a common area. More information can be found here. If you have any questions or concerns, please email communitystandards@brambleton.org or call 703-542-6263.
