Brambleton Town Center Improvements Coming Soon - Brambleton Group L.L.C. anticipates that land development activity will on the vacant parcels in the Town Center during the first week in May. Heavy construction equipment will be on site installing all of the necessary underground utilities in preparation for the new townhomes and library/office building. During this time, there will be loud noise from drilling and construction equipment that will need to occur. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to have the land development completed in a timely fashion. Construction will start on the parcel closest to Sport&Health and then move toward the Welcome Center.
Safety is our number one priority. Town Center patrons are asked to please use caution and not enter into the active construction area that will be enclosed by fencing.

Resident input is essential throughout this process. The first step in the process is to invite all residents to attend a design session (design charrette) to solicit residents' involvement and input to create the initial draft plans.

- The onset of spring showers will likely lead to a quick start to the growing season this year. During periods of fast growth, it may be necessary to mow every five to seven days to maintain turf in compliance with BCA’s Property Maintenance Standards
