Bremerton Cottages Association
The Bremerton Cottages Association (BCA) is incorporated under Commonwealth of Virginia laws to manage the common interests of the property owners and residents of our neighborhood. The BCA is led by a Board of Directors (BoD) elected from resident-volunteers. The Association is responsible for contracting vendors who maintain all grassy areas throughout the Bremerton Cottages. Homeowners are responsible for maintaining other landscaping (inclusive of trees, shrubbery, flower beds, etc.) and drainage infrastructure on their properties.
The BCA and GCA's Common Area Review Board (CARB) collaborate on the maintenance and management of common area trees in accordance with the established CARB Guidelines and the Common Area Maintenance Agreement between GCA and BCA.

BCA Board Meetings are shown on our Calendar of Events and below. Any updates or changes will be broadcast on our News page.
The 2024 BCA Annual Meeting will be held on February 20, tentatively.
Email BCA@glenmore-community.org for details.
Board Meetings generally are held quarterly or as needed. Residents of the Bremerton Cottages Association are welcome to attend all meetings; please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be included. Special meetings will be held as requested under the BCA Bylaws or as deemed necessary by the Board.
Committees will report after a quorum has been established and the minutes of the previous meeting have been approved. Public input will follow. We ask that each person wishing to speak limit their comments and concern to three minutes, subject to additional time for questions from the board.
The Board will generally not comment on the speakers’ remarks during the input segment, but rather at a subsequent time. This will give the Board time to reflect upon, research, and discuss the issues raised. In rare cases, some questions and comments to the Board may possibly be answered after all public input, if an accurate answer is readily at hand. However, we prefer to provide a written answer to the questioner either by email or regular mail.
Residents may also submit issues they’d like the board to address in writing/email several days prior to the meeting. These issues may be sent to email@example.com.

All meetings of the BCA Board are shown on the GCA calendar at 6:00 PM at The Club at Glenmore.

The BCA is governed by these legal documents, which are very similar to those governing the GCA. The most relevant to residents are the Covenants and Restrictions, which lay down the specific responsibilities of the association with regard to management and upkeep of individual lots as well as common areas. In addition to these documents, the BCA must comply with the section of Virginia law known as the Property Owners Association Act, and provide a written Complaint Procedure.
