There has been a budget passed for 2016 and the board was able to keep the fees at the $175 level. The budget will be online just like last years. I am not sure why some have not been able to find it. There have been some website problems but the board is looking at changing providers to clear up some of those issues.

There is Three position up for elections this year. President, Treasure, and Recording secretary. All other positions will remain the same since they are not finished with their terms. If you would like to run for an office please submit in writing your intentions to be placed on the ballot. The letter of intention should also include a short bio in the event you get elected.
The Meeting for the election and general HOA is not scheduled as of yet but will be coming soon. The meeting time date and location will be posted on all the social media sites the board has access to, there will be signs at the entrances of the development at least 30-45 days in advance.

Hi all – In case you haven’t noticed recently, the web site @ has been undergoing a face lift. I have been donating my spare time upgrading the site so that it is more modern, organized and accessible for mobile devices.The old web is still accessible via a link found on the home page since only about 90% of the old site information has been transferred. We’ll keep this link while the site is under construction.
However, building our web site is a lot of work for one person so we are looking to expand the team with more volunteers! We are looking for at least two more people.The site is primarily a WordPress site with custom PHP/JavaScript/HTML. If you have familiarity with those technologies, have a PC and have a couple of hours available per month, then please send me an email. At this time the preference is for adults in the community. If you are someone technical minded and have a can do attitude but lack experience, please don’t hesitate to volunteer.We are looking to meet twice monthly via a Google+ hangout or via a GotoMeeting.Please do not use this thread to comment on the site or suggest changes/requests.  Please contact the board @ if you have web site suggestions, etc.

We are pleased to announce that the HOA has contracted a new landscaper, Shivak Lawn and Landscape. Last year, we put out a request for proposal (RFP) for our landscape work to ensure we were getting the most competitive price and complete service.  Six companies responded to the RFP. The RFP is available on our website.

It was a difficult decision to switch from our previous landscapers who have serviced Branford Village from the beginning. The HOA based our decision on prices, services offered, professionalism of the proposal, and references. We also determined that having one contractor versus two would provide a more consistent performance, a greater knowledge of our property, and additional cost savings.

We want to welcome Jason Shivak and his team to Branford Village. Shivak Lawn and Landscape provided the best prices and most services from all proposals received. Shivak will perform mowing, weed-whacking, mulching and plantings, spring and fall cleanups, fertilization, aeration and seeding, maintaining the storm basins, tilling the walking paths, and snow removal.

The East Fallowfield Township Police Department has set up a Traffic Study by the Open Space on Hatteras Drive and it will be performed for at least 7 days.  THIS IS NOT A SPEED TRAP.  The intent of the traffic study is to determine if the speed limit within the development should be lowered.   The traffic study analyzes the volume and speed limits of the vehicles passing through it.  If the results demonstrate a high volume of vehicles passing through and at speeds considered unsafe, we can petition the Township to change the speed limits.  We should receive the results within a month and we will post them on the website.
