Neighbors, the BRMCA board of directors is seeking volunteers to serve on the board. We have a few outgoing board members and could use some help. Commitment is roughly two hours each month, ideally a bit more to help with special projects. The board manages the BRMCA properties, to include the community center and grounds; engages with the county regarding road concerns; serves as community advocates to the county on a range of issues; and hosts community events.
Board members must live full-time within Bull Run Mountain Estates and be paid members. Also, only one person from each house may serve on the board at any one time. Those who volunteer to serve on the board will receive one no-cost community center rental each year they serve on the board.
Please contact if you are interested or have questions. Thanks, Josh
Hi neighbors. Similar to previous years, the BRMCA applied for and received a Firewise grant from the VA Department of Forestry. The VADF now has a three year grant cycle. Last year was considered Year 1, which entails a $5K grant. This is Year 2, which comes with a $2.5K grant. No grant funds are provided during Year 3, after which the cycle starts again.
Similar to previous years, we are going to use our Year 2 grant funds to chip brush. This will help reduce the combustible fuel that accumulates around our houses and sheds.
The funding amount will allow us to provide chipping services at roughly ten residences, along with a chipping event for those who can transport their brush to the lower lot at the intersection of Mountain and Ridge.
See attached flyer for information. Please reach out to board with any questions and, if you’re interested in chipping services this September, please register through our website at www.brmca.net/chipper-request/
