BCA regularly receives concerns about community roadways being blocked off for play activity. BCA, VDOT, and Loudoun County do not condone street play and advise concerned residents to first approach the neighbors involved to directly resolve the concern. For unresolved concerns, we recommend contacting the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number (703-777-1021) while it is occurring. Placement of personal "Children at Play" signs in roadways or common areas is also discouraged, as they have been shown to create a false sense of security.What to Do About Noise Concerns -
When noise related to construction, renovations, landscaping services, or other nuisances becomes a concern, residents often reach out to BCA for assistance. As a first step, residents are encouraged to attempt to address the concern directly with the source when possible. If it is not possible and immediate intervention is necessary, residents are advised to contact the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office as they have the authority to enforce the county’s noise ordinance
. For emergencies, dial 911; for less urgent matters, the non-emergency number is 703-777-1021. For concerns related to pet noise, Loudoun County Animal Control
can intervene. For ongoing concerns related to noise, please contact the Community Standards department
to provide details and we will be glad to help seek a resolution.GREATER BRAMBLETONWe’re All Human Color Run -
