Yard of The Month Nominations




Bay Branch neighbors,

We are forming a committee of volunteers to help is create a request for proposal for the landscaping maintenance of our common areas.  The scope of work is more than our current contract because some of the areas we are legally obligated to maintain have never been maintained in the past and not part of the scope of work.  This maintenance cost is a huge portion of our budget.  To maintain our property values it’s critical that we properly care for our common areas. 

The representatives will help set the scope of work to be done.  Once completed, we will host a meeting with all interested vendors to show them each area and explain our expectations.  They will be given a bid deadline.  Once the bids are in the committee will review them and make recommendations to the board. 

If you are interested in being part of this committee please contact Julie Bland, Beautification Chair.

Call for Volunteers

Bay Branch neighbors, will you help me make our beautiful neighborhood even better?

Our plan is to spruce up the common areas a few times each month. Our front entrance is the first impression of our community, so it’s important for it to look its best. Our first challenge will be to do some weeding and light pruning up there Sunday April 15th and Sunday, April 22nd from 2-4.

Volunteering is a fun way to meet our neighbors and give back to the community. If you can join us let me know.

Julie Bland – Beautification Chairperson

Annual/Voting meeting date change - PLEASE REVIEW

Meeting has been re-scheduled for Feb 1st 2018 @ Spanish Trail Baptist starting at 7pm.

Architectural Review Committee Recruiting

Attention POA members,


The BBEPOA is forming an Architectural Review Committee. We are looking for 3-5 people willing to donate a small amount of time to review architectural requests that fall outside of the typical fence and tree removal requests. Duties will include but are not limited to: home addition reviews, interpreting by-laws and C&R's, inspection during construction, review of building plans for compliance and periodic committee reviews. We are especially interested in POA members with A&E and construction contractor backgrounds.


Please send inquires to info@BBEPOA.com


Thank you,

John Anderson

BBEPOA Architectural Committee Chair



Welcome 2017 and REminders

The BBE Board hopes you all have had a great Christmas and Good holiday. We appreciate everyone'sdecorations! The community looked great! 


We just want to remind you of a few things:

1.  Our annual meeting is coming up on January 19th! Details to follow.

2.  Dues have not increased since our beginning as a POA in 2002!

     Semi annual dues invoices were mailed on December 14th and payable by January 31st.

     Our goal this year is to have all collections made by the 31st so, please remind your community friends and neighbors. It creates a lot of hardship on all of us if we are late paying.

3.  We are still in search of a secretary for your POA

4.  We have a board meeting on the 10th.  Should anyone wish for an item to be addressed, please email president@bbepoa.com.  

5.  Remind all to please visit our website, www.BBEPOA.com for minutes of meetings and other official actions.


Thanks to all!
