It is recommended to all readers that they read the approved BCA Board Meeting minutes when published.

The regular meeting of the BCA Board was held following the special meeting. Three residents spoke during member voice:
  • Mr. John Borden (Bayport Landing) thanked the board for what he described as a “civics lesson” he and his wife received over the past three years. He announced his intention to write a book detailing his experiences.
  • Helen O’Neill (McTyres Cove) requested the board look into a solution for the parking problem along Brandermill Parkway during the July 4 festivities. She also requested more information be included in the Community Standards reports in the future, and that the BCA should look into ways they could offer leaf pickup in the fall. President McLenagan referenced the past community cleanup day, and Director Guthrie mentioned the possibility of contracting with a service to provide leaf pickup.
  • Mr. Schein (Spring Gate) addressed the board about the value of Brandermill homes compared to surrounding communities. He noted there are services provided by the BCA that should be provided by the county, and if that were done, it would free up funding for the BCA to address other services such as open space cleanup, that the county cannot provide.

President McLenagan attended the meeting for the Harbour Pointe medical facility and stated the meeting was very productive, and the project is moving forward with changes that have been requested by the residents. He also attended the June NRC meeting and stated he was excited about the meeting, as well as the upcoming Visual Image Survey that will be conducted by the NRC. He restated the importance of communications and the NRC in the Master Plan process, and to be successful, everyone needs to be involved.

The Pool Analysis completed by Higgins & Gerstenmaier as a result of the Request for Proposal was presented to the board. Several board members stated they could not see where the information requested in the RFP had been provided. Ms. Pritz will follow up with Higgins & Gerstenmaier to provide the board with a report that is responsive to the RFP by the next board meeting.

The amendment to the Residential Design Standard that addresses metal roof materials was approved by the board.

The amendment to the Commercial Design Standard that addresses signage in Waterford was deferred pending clarification of outstanding questions.

The Roundabout Entrance Signage and associated landscaping was discussed. The installation costs will be borne by VDOT, and maintenance costs will be borne by the BCA. The board requested input from the residents, and asked the finance committee to make a recommendation to the board for consideration in August.
