About the Bristow Village Homeowners Association
Bristow Village is managed and supported by a private, non-profit homeowners association, the Bristow Village Homeowners Association (the Association). A community association is a corporation in which a homeowner is bound to membership in an organization in which rules and regulations are set by the Declaration of Incorporation and bylaws generally called the governing documents.
Governing documents create mutual obligations for homeowners and the Association. In Bristow Village, governing documents attempt to achieve a balance between two equally important goals: the freedom each person wants to be able to live the way he or she wants; and the protection each community member needs against careless and inconsiderate behavior of others.
Through the all-volunteer Association, residents of the Village keep alive a cooperative and voluntary effort to demonstrate neighborly tolerance, consideration, and mutual respect. The continuing success of Bristow Village is directly attributable to the effort each resident puts forth in making the Village a pleasant place to live.
Due to our longstanding and successful commitment to manage our own affairs for 40 years, we have consistently maintained our community standards and kept our costs much lower than average.
