Policy on Supporting Charitable Causes

BARA supports the promotion of charitable causes from local Broadmead businesses. After a number of such requests, a policy statement was created to help clarify our position:

Policy Statement:
BARA supports local charity endeavours by advertising them on our website, in The Bugle, and in our Community Kiosk at Broadmead Centre. We do not support commercial ventures except through paid ads in The Bugle.

Broadmead 'For Sale' Signs

Effective January 1st 2012 our contract for the installation and removal of 'For Sale' signs has been changed from D & D Sign Setters to
Mile Zero Sign Services.

For all new residential listings, the Realtor should contact Mile Zero Sign Services at milezerosigns@gmail.com or by telephone at 250-893-7661. Homeowners using the 'For Sale by Owner' should contact Mile Zero signs directly.

Residents currently having a listing in Broadmead should contact Mile Zero Signs when the listing expires and they will remove the signs.

Photo Gallery

A selection of community photos are available for viewing in the Photo Gallery. The photos are changed regularly to reflect the seasons and to show community events.

Reporting Graffiti

Residents may report graffiti within Broadmead by email at info@broadmead.ca. We have a small team of volunteers who have kindly agreed to remove graffiti as and when possible.

District of Saanich instructions for reporting graffiti may be viewed here.
