Neighbors, we successfully completed another round of brush chipping, funded by a Virginia Dept of Forestry Firewise grant. We have a resident who participated this year; is continuing to collect brush; and would like to hire our chipping contractor – Jackson Hollow Land Services – to chip additional brush. We are trying to reach at least five interested residents to make mobilization worthwhile for Jackson Hollow. Please let us know if you are interested in brush chipping this year. Cost will be $275 per house, payable directly to Jackson Hollow (the BRMCA can help coordinate). The BRMCA will apply for another Firewise grant next year. If awarded, we will perform brush chipping for another 20+ residences late summer / early fall 2022.
All are welcome by the clubhouse lower lot field (intersection of Ridge & Mountain) on Halloween from 4:00pm until about 6:30pm (sunset is 6:08). We intend to have a fire pit in the middle of the field, hot apple cider available at no-cost, and (possibly) a food truck at the clubhouse lot.
We will use landscaping spray paint to mark up to 50 six foot by six foot squares around the perimeter of the lower lot field. Squares will increase in size if we have less than 50 volunteers. Volunteers can decorate their spot before the event and hand out candy during the event. At the last spot around the perimeter, each family can vote for the best decorated spot. The top two will win a gift card.
Volunteers and attendees – please park at the clubhouse and walk down to the lower lot field.
More details to follow. Please reach out to the board if you have any questions or would like to volunteer.
Neighbors, it is that time of year when the Bull Run Mountain Civic Association seeks nominees for the board of directors. If you are interested in joining the BRMCA board or have questions about the board, please reach out to us. Only requirements are that you are a paid BRMCA member; your primary residence is within BRM estates; and that only one resident per residence participates on the board.
The board is composed of nine resident volunteers who serve three-year terms. These terms are staggered, such that three positions go up for vote each year. This year, the board positions held by Josh Weinstein, Gene Suarez, and a currently vacant position are up for vote.
We will seek nominees through Facebook, email, and our website right up until our August 16th (7pm) meeting, after which we hope to have at least three nominees. We will then collect bios and advertise the nominees through Facebook, email, and our website. Current BRMCA members (one vote per residence) can vote on their top three nominees via our website until our Annual Meeting on September 20th (7pm).
