A MESSAGE FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER

Summer Potpourri Summer is almost here. The kids are anxious for school to end, and there is a lot of activity happening around town. Final preparations are being made for events and programs. The grounds crews are out in full force, and the pool contractor is ready for a busy summer swim season. Covenants inspections are also in full force. These are just some of the activities the Association has to coordinate and oversee going into the busiest time of the year. I would first like to recognize the Covenants Department and all the hard work they do. They have been busy with inspections throughout the community and are working with residents to get their next exterior projects approved. As a result, several residents have been the recipients of the most coveted communication from the Association, the violation letter. Regardless of the nature of the violation or the reaction from the one receiving this coveted communication, the members of the Covenants team serve a vital role within the Association. They are here to assure that maintenance and design standards

are met, as everyone agreed to, when they moved into the community. Their work is thankless at times, but at the end of the day, most appreciated by all. Their commitment to upholding the community covenants while taking a “livable community” approach towards enforcement has served the community well. Pools…… so what’s going on with the next pool? The developer has broken ground on the Association’s third pool and banquet/community facility. Unfortunately, the facility will not be completed until later this year, after the swim season is over. This delay will obviously impact the pools this summer. The Association is preparing for the crowds at the pools on those hot sunny days. To help the situation, pool hours have been extended to include an early morning swim, Brambleton Unplugged at Beacon Crest Pool, and a 9:00 am opening at Beacon Crest. These modifications to extend the operating hours at the pools will hopefully alleviate some of the mid-day crowds. Please bear with us this summer as the developer continues construction on our third pool.

June is the kick-off to the summer event season, and I wanted to take a moment to highlight several annual events that will be occurring this month. Brambleton will provide kids and teens the venue to kick off the summer at the Annual Summer KickOff Pool Party on June 7th. The Sizzlin’ Summer Concert Series kicks off on Thursday, June 13th. Brambleton will once again be the host to Loudoun’s Youth Fest, the County’s biggest teen event on Saturday, June 15 from 3:00 - 8:30 pm. http://loudounyouthfest.com. To end this month of fun, the Association will hold its annual Red, White and BRAM festival of concerts and fireworks display on June 29th. Be sure to read the Friday Flash weekly for the details on all these great upcoming events or visit our website, http://www.brambletonhoa. com. I wish everyone a great, safe and fun summer. Sincerely,

Rick Stone PCAM, LSM General Manager

COMMENTS ON COVENANTS

Revised Guidelines for Basketball & Recreational Equipment Rosemarie Linder, Director of Resident Services Brambleton’s Covenants Committee gave consideration to feedback received from residents throughout the community and carefully reviewed the existing standards and Brambleton’s Board of Directors approved the proposed revisions to the Design Guide-

lines and Maintenance Standards at their April 9, 2013 meeting. The Board granted a 60 day waiver for enforcement of any new guidelines and standards to allow all Brambleton residents to become familiar with new requirements and to make any necessary

modifications to comply. Contact Brambleton’s Covenants staff with any questions or for more information at covenants@brambleton.org, or 703-542-6263. 

PRIVATE IMPROVEMENTS – PUBLIC RIGHT OF WAYS Lot owners are hereby put on notice that the front property lines of most Lots do not extend to the public street and are typically located a few feet behind the curb and gutter, or public sidewalk. Lot Owners shall not install, construct or place any private facilities or improvements, including but not limited to sprinkler/irrigation systems, fences, walls, landscaping, signs or other decorative improvements and appurtenant facilities within the dedicated public street rightof-way. Loudoun County, the Virginia Department of Transportation and/or the Declarant, as required for bond release and State road acceptance, may, in their sole discretion, without prior notice to the Lot Owner, remove any and all private facilities or improvements located within the dedicated public street right-of-way.

BASKETBALL EQUIPMENT General Considerations All basketball equipment requires an application and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Basketball backboards may not be attached to the home or garage. Basketball backboards may be erected on permanent poles in the driveways of single-family detached homes and are to be sited such that they are a minimum of fifteen (15) feet from the street and located so that basketballs will not fall into the yards of adjoining homes. The configuration of the driveway, distance from the street and proximity of adjoining lots will be a factor in evaluating an application. The use of basketball equipment is limited to daylight hours. Specific Guidelines 1.

No more than one piece of basketball equipment will be permitted on any property.

2.

Metal poles are to be painted black, brown or left in a galvanized finish; a wood pole is to be painted brown, black, to match the house colors, or left to weather naturally.

3.

No building-mounted backboards shall be allowed.

4.

The addition of paving material for a playing court also requires review and approval and may require County approval.

5.

Portable basketball equipment that has not been reviewed and approved by the Covenants Committee must be stored out of sight when not in use.

6.

Portable basketball goal/hoops systems must be stabilized by filling the base with water or sand according to manufacturer’s instructions. No other form of weighting, for example: cinder blocks, bricks, bagged sand, mulch or gravel is acceptable. If the hoop cannot be stabilized following the manufacturer’s instructions, it is not suitable for installation in the community setting and is not permitted.

Submission Requirements 1.

A copy of the existing official record plat showing the house and any accessory structures, fences, significant vegetation, property lines, the proposed location of the basketball backboard and pole.

2.

A catalogue photograph or manufacturer's "cut sheets" of the backboard and pole, including dimensions, materials, and colors.

3.

Where applicable, provide a planting plan indicating the proposed type and location of vegetation or other screening, existing or proposed.

Maintenance Requirements and future considerations In addition to the applicable Property Maintenance Standards, the following specific maintenance requirements apply to basketball equipment. A.

Netting must be properly attached to the goal at all times and maintained in original condition.

B.

Basketball goal/hoop system must be rust and damage free.

7


C.

Basketball goal/hoop system must be kept in the upright position.

D.

Basketball goal/hoop system must be maintained to the manufacturer’s original specifications and may not be altered in any way.

Basketball equipment must be maintained in keeping with Brambleton Community Association’s Property Maintenance Standards and the exterior elements must be maintained in their original factory condition. Damaged basketball equipment must be immediately stored out of view of neighboring properties. If changes to previously approved or installed basketball equipment are desired, a new Design Review Application is required and must be submitted for review and approval prior to making any changes. RECREATION AND PLAY EQUIPMENT General Considerations The Design Standards listed below are provided in an effort to reconcile the need for play equipment with the goal of minimizing its visual impact and the effect the use of such equipment will have on neighbors. Careful thought should be given to location and kinds of equipment to be installed since neighborhood facilities will be of a larger scale and have greater usage. The installation of play equipment in common areas is prohibited. Permanent play equipment is to be selected and located so as to minimize its visual and acoustical impact on adjacent properties. Design and location are to be carefully considered and efforts made to visually integrate the structure into its surroundings and take advantage of any screening provided by existing vegetation. When required, screening of the equipment must be accomplished by evergreens to ensure year-round protection. Screening plant material will be required to be of a height great enough to conceal the play equipment within 24 months of planting. When considering play equipment, the size of the property, wooded area, equipment size, material, color, relationship to adjacent residences and amount of visual screening are important factors. Permanent or semi-permanent play equipment which constitutes a structure, such as a swing set, play-house, sand box, etc., requires an application and must conform to the guidelines below to be approved. Specific Guidelines 1.

Location. All play equipment (with the exception of basketball hoops) must be located in the rear yard. Play equipment must be located a minimum of five feet (5') from any property line.

2.

Size and Scale. The size of any play equipment is to be compatible with the size of the lot.

3.

Screening. Play equipment is to be sited so as to have the minimum visual and noise impacts on adjoining lots. The Covenants Committee may require landscape screening to minimize any adverse impacts.

4.

Material and Colors. i.

8

For Single Family Detached Homes – Play equipment must be primarily made of wood and the use of bright colors on play equipment should be minimized. How ever, as most play structures available for purchase have bright colored plastic and/ or fabric elements they will generally be acceptable if the majority of the basic structure is wood. Applications for play equipment are to include a color photograph or catalogue cut sheet, the physical dimensions of the equipment and proposed location on the lot.

Brambleton Community Association Newsletter

June 2013


ii. For Single Family Attached Homes – the use of plastic play equipment is permitted within a fenced backyard as most wood play equipment available to residents is not suited to the size and scale of the majority of Lots within this housing type. 5.

Portable play equipment that is easily transportable by one person, such as soccer nets, bikes or scoot ers, does not require approval but must be stored out of view of neighboring properties when not in use.

6.

Portable, large play equipment such as skateboard ramps, climbing walls, trampolines, portable basketball backboards, etc., must be approved unless stored out of sight when not in use.

Submission Requirements 1.

A copy of the existing official record plat showing the house and any accessory structures, fences, significant vegetation, property lines, and the proposed location of the play equipment.

2.

Photographs showing the existing house and site marked with the location of the proposed play equipment.

3.

A catalogue photograph or manufacturer's "cut sheets" of the play equipment, including dimensions, materials, and colors.

4.

If equipment is to be constructed, include a plan and elevation drawing, to scale, identifying dimensions, materials, and colors.

5.

Where applicable, provide a planting plan indicating the proposed type and location of vegetation.

Maintenance Requirements and future considerations Recreation and play equipment must be maintained in keeping with Brambleton Community Association’s Property Maintenance Standards. If changes to a previously approved Play Equipment are desired, a new Design Review Application is required and must be submitted for review and approval prior to making any changes.

Red, White and BRAM Kazoku Family Challenge Polina Gregory, KazokuFit Co-Founder The race is designed for families to do together, and with "We have no sidelines" as their tagline, families are encouraged to run, jump, crawl, and climb their way through it. The course is a ½ mile loop that can be done multiple times with obstacles specifically created to challenge family members of all ages. The more times you run, the more chances you get to enter a raffle to win gift cards! Kids ages 7-14 can race with or without a parent (they are highly encouraged to join, though). This is a family event! We have no sidelines. Younger children must have an adult on the course with them.

Try something new... a family obstacle course where you will walk, run, jump, climb, and crawl! All ages are invited to participate in this fun and challenging event!

They also firmly believe in having fun and being fit and doing it together as a family. Kazoku means “family” in Japanese and that is how they came up with the name.

Register at www.wehavenosidelines. com before June 8th and receive a KazokuFit Challenge t-shirt (14 and under). In addition to the two obstacle courses, there will also be a Fun Zone with a moon bounce, spirit face painting (think war paint), etc. You will also receive temporary tattoos after event completion.

Obstacle courses are all the rage these days. Mud runs and other races that involve physical challenges along the way seem to take place all the time now but none of them are really geared towards kids and families. But that's about to change thanks to KazukoFit, a new company that produces obstacle courses and adventure races with all ages and fitness levels in mind. KazukoFit founders Polina Gregory, a Brambleton resident, and Mark Shafer came up with the idea because they wanted their own kids to experience an obstacle course challenge -- and they wanted to be able to join them.

Brambleton’s first ever Red, White and Bram Kazoku Family Challenge is happening on June 29th from 8 am – noon and a portion of the proceeds goes towards a great local charity www.journey4acure. org a Pediatric Cancer Foundation.

Register for the Red, White and Bram Kazoku Family Challenge and you will be supporting a great cause while having a fun-filled morning, creating memories that will last forever. Join the conversation at www. facebook.com/kazokufit and see what everyone is talking about.

Meet the Summer Camp Counselors Dana Vinci, Events and Programming Specialist Right now your kids are gearing up for their summer break and are probably very excited to head off to camp. Sometimes the thought of going to camp and meeting new people might be a little scary for your little ones so we thought we would put together a quick bio sheet on some of the camp councelors your kids might meet at one of the many camps we offer here in Brambleton! OVERTIME ATHLETICS SPORTS CAMP Hi, I am Lisa Sheffer and this will be my second summer working the Brambleton summer camps! This year I have mainly split my time between working afterschool programs and fulfill-

14

ing an intern position in the U.S Senate. Additionally, I was a Herndon high cheerleader who is happy to say our team won the state championship this year. I am attending Radford University with plans to major in communications-media. I think the most rewarding thing that I’ve had happen as a coach is having the kids come back the next day and be able to utilize the skills they learned the day before. That is easily my favorite highlight as an Overtime Athletics coach! I’m looking forward to yet another summer of fun!

Brambleton Community Association Newsletter

Hi I am Matt Stevens and this is my second year working at Brambleton Summer Camp. I am currently

June 2013

going to Old Dominion University. I played basketball and lacrosse in high school all four years. I have to play basketball and work on cars with my spare time. I choose to work with kids because I can easily relate to them since I used to go to summer camps. My name is Bruce Butler. I was at Brambleton Summer Camps last year and am happy to coming back. I currently go to George Mason University. My hobbies are playing basketball, fishing, and watching Nats games with my dad, and hanging out with friends. I'm a big time Redskins fan as well. I've played baseball, basketball, football in my spare time. I choose to


work with kids, because I think it’s important to teach the kids the fundamentals of games, just like I was taught as a kid. It's a fun job, and I enjoy interacting with the kids, and hopefully giving them an experience they will remember. If they can learn something new each day, then I think we've done a good job. My name is Jason Gappa. This is my first year at Brambleton Summer Camps. I planned to transfer to JMU this fall. I’ve played baseball, basketball, and some football in high school. In my spare time, I love to be outside and staying active. I enjoy working with kids because its never a dull time and love spreading my passion for sports. I think it’s important to be a role model to the younger generation, I hope my passion for staying active and sports is seen by these kids. ENGINEERING FOR KIDS Hi, I am Ekta C h a u d h a r y, the director and one of the lead teachers for Engineering for Kids, Northern VA. I have two kids ages 8 and 5 and started this venture a year ago when I was looking for some science based activities for my own kids. Having a strong background in science, I have successfully launched and taught various engineering programs in Loudoun and Fairfax county public

schools and other community centers. I am a certified Project Management Professional and hold a Master’s degree from George Washington University. I firmly believe that children should apply the skills and knowledge acquired in schools to realworld problems and find Engineering for Kids a great medium to fulfill that goal. I strive to introduce critical problem solving skills through hands-on fun activities and consider engineering as a practical way of applying what, why, and how, of things with which kids interact and bring their imaginations to reality. SILVER NIGHTS CHESS CAMP Hi, I am Justin Burgess! I am a 2008 graduate of Virginia Tech with a degree in accounting. I have worked at a bank in Blacksburg until I was hired by Silver Knights in January 2012. I did not learn how to play chess until age 13, but immediately fell in love with the game. In 2011 I achieved the title of USCF Expert, and in April I became a National Master. I am an active tournament player in Virginia, and also a certified Club Tournament Director. In 2012, I tied for first at the Virginia State Chess Championship, making me the co-champion of Virginia. MATH TREE My name is Diviya Muruganandam and I am a recent graduate from JMU. I was looking for sum-

mer jobs and found an opportunity to work with children at MathTree. I loved the idea of being able to help children through the tough subjects. The children can expect a fun but educational experience My name is Alexandra Zinda and I’ve been working for MathTree for the past several summers (since 2007). The President of MathTree, Lynn Salvo, was my math tutor when I was in school and has been very influential in the strategies and approach that I use toward teaching math to my students. I have enjoyed teaching the MathTree curriculum to my students because it is engaging and provides them with a hands-on multi-modal approach to learning math. For example, playing Go Fish and using combinations of dominoes to find all the sums to ten. In addition, the curriculum is individualized to meet my students’ unique learning needs and is also developmentally appropriate. I strive as a teacher to plant a love of math in my students by teaching them fundamental building blocks and skills, such as the importance of understanding place value, that will grow and develop over time. I’m looking forward to teaching for MathTree this summer at the Brambleton Community Center and working with your students! 

THINK GREEN

Water Conservation Loudoun Water

You can conserve water indoors by repairing leaks, limiting shower times, running dishwashers only when full, and cleaning laundry only when the washing machine is full. The greatest opportunities for water conservation can actually be found in your lawn watering schedule. In the summer months lawn watering can account for as much as 65% of total use. Too often, we overwater our lawns. The problem is, most people either water at a schedule that's convenient for them, regardless of their lawn's need for water, or they just don't know how much water a lawn needs and how to deliver it most efficiently. For that reason, we offer the following tips and tools. Most importantly, we request that our residential customers follow a two-day per week watering schedule:

22

Odd Addresses: Wednesday and Saturday Even Addresses: Thursday and Sunday This schedule has a number of benefits: It evenly distributes water use over a weeks time, which helps extend the life of our assets, and it leaves Monday alone – a chance for storage tanks to refill after a weekend of heavy water use. If you would prefer to install an irrigation system, use our guidelines to help make your decision. Then, irrigate smarter with tips from the Irrigation Association. July is officially Smart Irrigation Month, but their tips can be used during other months too! You can cut down on lawn watering altogether with a landscape that minimizes the need for watering.

We offer a free, color guide to water wise landscaping, which you can request by contacting us or you can download a copy. The guide helps calculate your water needs, timing and frequency and shares some ideas for landscaping that's lighter on your hose, your wallet and your back. In case of drought or extremely dry weather, Loudoun Water follows the region's drought response plan. We're also a member of EPA's WaterSense program. Visit their website to locate water-efficient products. View videos that we posted to help promote their campaign, Fix a Leak week.

PET ADVICE

Treating Your Dog's Bad Breath Tina Gerin, Brambleton Resident once a week is good too.

Brambleton resident and avid dog lover, Tina Gerin, moved to the community in November of 2011. She has 7 years experience working with dogs and owns and operates her own dog walking/pet sitting business. She offers her advice to residents on everything from pet care and training to referral of pet services.

I have been getting a lot of questions from clients on their dogs having bad breath so I decided this would be a good topic for my next article. A dog can get bad breath for many reasons, but the main reason is usually the kibble we are feeding them. Contrary to popular belief, kibble does not clean a dogs teeth. A dog does best on raw food, but that is a big jump to take for many, and a whole other topic. Their systems are not designed to process kibble, although they adjust since that is what we are taught is what we should feed them. Many people that switch to a raw or partial raw diet notice the first thing that is gone is the bad breath, but again that is a big jump and whole other topic. For now the best remedy is: Try to stick to a kibble that is all protein as dogs don’t need oats, grains, corn or anything like that; it's all just filler. Get into a regimen of brushing your dogs teeth, daily is great, but at least

The best way to clean a dogs teeth though, is raw bones. They need that grinding to get the tartar off. Tooth brushing helps as well, but combining that with the bones is the best way. I reccommend two types of bones. Marrow bones and beef rib bones. These bones have less of a chance of splintering. The important key factor is that they are given raw and frozen. Do not cook these bones as they will splinter, and cooking defeats the purpose of them grinding the raw meat off to clean their teeth. The other important factor with the beef rib bones, is take them away as soon as the dog is finished cleaning all the meat off. And never, ever give them beef rib bones if they will be left alone. Marrow bones won't splinter and can be given when they are alone. Your dog will eat the meat around it and the marrow inside. They can also be used to pacify your dog if you need to be gone for a few hours and he/she has any kind of separation issues. Marrow bones can keep your dogs busy for hours! You can also refill your marrow bones with peanut butter and refreeze for an in expensive way to give your dogs a healthy treat, and clean their teeth at the same time. No matter what your dogs size, marrow and beef rib bones are a great teeth cleaning tool. Pet stores carry many solutions, pills and powders. etc. Just make sure to read the labels on these items. There are many chemicals in them, and they usually just work for a few minutes, not long term. All natural pet stores in the area carry the marrow bones, or you can have your butcher cut them for you

at your local grocery store. Be sure to get them cut wide enough - I reccommend at least 3-4 inches wide. The beef rib bones are at the local grocer. They are sold in a slab and you just get that, cut them down to individual singe ribs, and freeze. These are both also very healthy treats for your dogs and they will love you for it. There are other reasons for bad breath that you should consider. They could have tartar build up, gum disease, or a bad tooth. Be sure to check your dogs mouth, for swollen gums, tarter build up, bleeding gums, or any bad teeth. If you find any of these, you will have to visit the vet and get the problem treated. If they have a lot of tartar build up they may need a teeth cleaning. Once their teeth are cleaned, you can start them on the raw bone regimen combined with tooth brushing. You will notice a big difference! If you have any questions on diet or bones, feel free to contact me at tina@paws-a-gogo.com. Also visit our website at www.paws-a-gogo.com for any dog walking or pet sitting information.
