INSIDE BCA


Verizon Upgrade Clarification - Verizon continues to transition the Brambleton community to the proper ONT & wiring equipment required to access the 500/500 Mbps enhanced speeds that will be initiated later this year. The addresses listed in our recent Verizon Upgrade message are homes that are ready for the ONT & wiring equipment conversion only. Verizon will provide an immediate upgrade to 100/100 Mbps for homes that undergo this conversion. Upon completion of all equipment conversions, the entire community will be phased into the new services and 500/500 Mbps enhanced speeds provided by the new agreement. This migration is anticipated to occur in Q4 of this year. For more details, please visit our FiOS in Brambleton page or contact Ara Galang at (703) 542-6263 or ara.galang@brambleton.org.

Section Acceptance Inspections - The Association will be inspecting the common areas and related improvements for deficiencies in the Brandt Townhome section in preparation of acceptance/turnover from the Developer to the Association. Residents with common area concerns in this area of the community are asked to email CIP@Brambleton.org with a description of the concern and location. Association staff will then inspect the concern and determine next action.

Committee Members and Volunteers Needed - BCA relies on its committee members and volunteers in order to ensure the health and success of our great community. Read our special message for information on opportunities to participate in new and existing committees, volunteer at events, and more.

COMMUNITY STANDARDS

Do You Own a Portable Basketball Hoop? - Recent inspections have noted that several basketball hoop bases are being weighted down with improper material and are not being stored in the proper location. Please review the guidelines for placement and stabilization. Please contact communitystandards@brambleton.org with any questions.

Landscape Bed Maintenance - Turf areas and mulched landscape beds are to be kept as weed-free as reasonable. At no time shall weeds exceed more than 25% of the total turf area or 10% of mulched areas. Mulching landscape beds is one of the best ways to prevent weeds from growing out of control. More information and tips on landscape bed maintenance can be found here. Please contact the Community Standards team with any questions or to report a concern.

Tree Care Reminders - Residents are responsible for maintaining trees and bushes on their property. These responsibilities include:

  • trimming/pruning trees to a minimum of 8 feet above the sidewalk to allow for free, unobstructed passage;
  • maintaining all trees and landscaping within the scale of the property;
  • removing tree stakes which have been in place for more than one year;
  • removing dead plant material promptly and planning for required replacements.

If you have questions, please contact the Community Standards team at 703-542-6263 or communitystandards@brambleton.org.
