Community Playground We share ownership (with Bexley) in a playground, located at the lake.  To get there, follow the boardwalk/path to the lake, cross over the "upper dam", and the playground will be straight ahead.  Use it responsibly, and enjoy.  It's a great venue to meet new friends, from both sides of the lake.

Loch Braemar Pool Loch Braemar is offering Bexley West Residents the opportunity to join their pool at the same discounted prices that they charge their own residents (reflecting a savings of over 20%). They offer family memberships for $250, couples memberships for $180, and singles memberships for $150. This olympic-size pool with a diving well and fenced-in kiddie pool opens on Memorial Day, and remains open every day until Labor Day. Then, it is open for the first several weekends in September. There are "socials" for all of the major summer holidays, monthly "movie nights" at the pool, and members can use the facilities for no extra charge for their own gatherings. If you would like to join, visit their website at www.lochbraemar.com and navigate to the "pool" section of their website. Application forms etc. can be obtained there.

Board Members Needed! It's our neighborhood, a great one at that, and we need some new volunteers to continue the navigation in to the future.   If you're interested in becoming involved in any way (Board, ACC or Committe Member), please contact any Board Member.

Monthly Board Meetings The Bexley West Board meets monthly.   If you are interested in attending any meeting, please contact any member of the Board, and we'll provide you with the details for the next upcoming meeting.

Ongoing Reminders

Considering an Improvement If you're considering an improvement to the exterior of your residence, please contact our Architectural Control Committee for their approval before you start! This includes additions, decks, fences, painting or repainting etc. Contact the ACC by clicking here.

Unleashed Dogs We've all read unfortunate stories in the news recently regarding unleashed dogs attacking people.   We must all be observant and vigilant to assure that this never happens in our neighborhood.   Please report any unleashed dog immediately to The Chesterfield County Animal Control Office. Their phone numbers are 804-748-1683 and 717-6036 (nights & weekends).

Neighborhood Watch Program To read the latest Neighborhood Watch Newsletter, published by Chesterfield County, click here.   If you see any suspicious goings-on in the neighborhood, please do not hesitate to contact the Chesterfield County Police: Non-Emergency 804-748-1251, or Emergency 911.

Houses For Sale If you're marketing your house for sale, please encourage your realtor to include the address of this website in the marketing materials they prepare.  It will create value and help you sell your house!   Also, please remember that our existing covenants allow only one "For Sale" sign to be displayed, typically placed in the front yard.   A current real estate trend is to "point the way" to houses-for-sale with multiple signs.   Perhaps this method is effective, but it also litters front entranceways and corners in the process!   So please advise your realtor that only one sign can be placed. All others will be removed. An exception: multiple signs can temporarily be displayed for an Open House, but after the Open House concludes, the extra signs must be removed.

Parking on the Street Our existing covenants/restrictions prohibit overnight on-street parking. Keeping vehicles off the streets and in driveways/garages helps unclutter our neighborhood's appearance. We will diligently enforce this restriction, as it is unsafe to leave them there; to other motorists, to pedestrians, kids etc. Love thy neighborhood; park thy car.

When you need to spruce up your Mailbox and Post You should do this between May and September when the temperatures will stay above 55 degrees for 72 hours.

Mailbox - If your mailbox shows no rust, use warm water and soap and clean it, then try it with a clean cloth. After you clean it, you might want to spray some insecticide inside and wipe it dry to prevent insects from invading. If you do have rust, review this link http://www.doityourself.com/stry/remove-rust-from-your-mailbox-in-number-steps#b  Paint your mailbox with a rust-proof Black Satin Spray paint. Painting with a brush will show streaks.

Mailbox Post - We can provide the required paint (Benjamin Moore semitransparent stain - Canyon Gray 74) Contact Russ Marsden at russmarsden@comcast.net for the paint and any related questions.
