BARA Membership

BARA – your active community association – safeguards the aesthetic beauty of Broadmead’s naturalistic setting. BARA assists residents who let us know if they have a concern regarding neighbours who might not have respected the legally binding restrictions which have been placed on their property, or who are making property changes which are not consistent with the architectural vision of the community.
     BARA appreciates your support as it publicizes and maintains the property restrictions which prohibit the parking of recreational or commercial vehicles or trailers in driveways and prohibit the operation of secondary rental suites.
     We have great neighbours, lots of parkland and a sense of pride in our neighbourhood. All of these, and more, make Broadmead a very desirable place to live! If you need to renew your membership, or have not already become a member, use this convenient on-line form.
     Your valuable support is appreciated.
