Planning a Project? Remember to Obtain Approval First! - Our governing documents require that BCA approves all proposed exterior modifications before any work is started. Membership in a community association requires compliance with pre-existing conditions and regulations. One of the biggest advantages of these conditions is the protection of our property values. The value of your home is directly related to the condition and aesthetics of our community as a whole. Completed applications can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (recommended) or mailed to the BCA Management Office. If you have any questions regarding the design review process or guidelines, please visit our website or call 703-542-6263.
