Reminders about Pets – The Bylaws of the Association and Loudoun County Ordinance require that pets be on a leash at all times when on the common elements of the community. We have received recent reports from residents of attacks from unleashed dogs while on common elements of the community. All residents want to enjoy their time out and about the community with their dogs, without the threat of harm to themselves or their pets. Owners of pets walked upon the common elements must promptly clean up after their pets. Residences at Brambleton II Hot Topic – Please take a moment to read the Hot Topic regarding trash here.
