The Newbridge HOA Board continues to coordinate with Dominion on swapping out our current streetlights for LED fixtures. Current lights will be replaced like-for-like; LED lights with shading to focus light downwards. Dominion has yet to provide us a scheduled installation date, stating that they have many installations delayed due to supply chain issues.
Traffic Calming Measures

The purpose of this is to mitigate speeding in this high density area. The average speed of drivers on Golf Course Drive is 36 mph, while the speed limit is 25 mph.

The Newbridge Design Committee has proposed draft standards for consideration, which includes: Trim & Fence, Lighting, Doors, Windows, Decks & Patios, Siding, Enclosures & Sheds. The color palette is still under update.
