"The mountains are calling and I must go."

The mission of the BRMCA is to preserve the unspoiled beauty of the mountain and protect the resources of forest, water and wildlife so residents can enjoy the privacy and peacefulness of a woodland community.
The association devises strategies and takes action to promote the general welfare of the community, to educate residents about Clarke and Loudoun County land use regulations and to address safety and environmental concerns in the area, including the Appalachian Trail.
The BRMCA is a 501(c)(4) civic organization established in 2003 for residents who live or own property accessible from Route 601 (BRMCA community). The association was founded by Frank Cefalu, Joseph Davitt, Ken Lawson, Sigrid Pollari and Thomas Shifflett. Voting membership is open to adults (18 or older) who live within the BRMCA community and have paid current annual dues. Non-voting membership is open to adults living outside the BRMCA community who share an interest in the association's mission and have also paid current dues.
The Executive Board consists of four officers elected by the membership and board-appointed directors, for a maximum of eleven members.
Membership meetings are held twice per year and host speakers in fields of expertise relevant to the region and mountain life. Social events, Adopt-a-Highway and Firewise bring BRMCA members together throughout the year. The association and its activities are strictly non-partisan, non-sectarian and non-political.
