A. The subdivision is administered by the Blue Mountain Property Owner's Association (BMPOA) and is a deed-restricted community: all property owners automatically become members at settlement. The subdivision predates The Virginia Property Owner's Act and is not subject to the act; therefore, a "homeowner's packet" is not required to be provided by the BMPOA. However, protective covenants and bylaws apply, are in force, and copies should be provided to the buyer. You can download these documents from our web site at WWW.BMPOA.ORG.
A. There are no property owner dues or fees per se. However, in addition to Real Estate taxes, there is a separate Blue Mountain Sanitary District (BMSD) tax. Warren County collects both of these taxes in two equal installments on June 5th and December 5th of each year. Like the real estate tax, the BMSD tax varies depending on the county valuation or assessment of the property.
A. No. The county turns over the collected BMSD taxes to the BMPOA to pay for maintaining all 15 miles of private roads, all snow plowing, and all recreation area maintenance, liability insurance, etc. The BMPOA accounts for the expenditure of those tax revenues to Warren County.
A. Like real estate taxes, if it is not paid to Warren County in full by the due date, the county assesses penalties and interest. Further, the County has the authority to put a lien against the property -- possibly leading to forfeiture and sale to pay the taxes.
A. BMPOA does not know what these numbers are and cannot provide them. The settlement firm or attorney must contact the Warren County Treasurer's office at 540- 635-2215 with a legal description of the property/properties to determine the payoff numbers for the date of settlement.
A. The new owner/owners become fully and finally responsible for any back taxes -- as well as interest and penalties.
All property owners within the BMPOA Sanitary District are eligible for free wood chipping annually. Property owners are highly encouraged to participate in the cleanup as it has a broad impression on the impact a fire event has on our mountain.
Surplus wood chips are typically available to be delivered to homeowners property during the chipping process free of charge. Additionally wood chips are dumped at the dam parking area at Deer Lake and are available for any homeowners that are in need of wood chips. Please us the contact the individual in charge via the contact us link to the right for more information on how to coordinate a woodchip delivery during the chipping process.
Chipping typically occurs in early spring to ensure that the majority of severe weather known to cause accumulation of dead fall has passed. The process spans over a weeks time and will be announced several weeks in advance.
The removal of deadfall in our community plays an important role in mitigating forest fires on our mountain. That is why BMPOA has partnered with the Virginia Department of Forestry to establish a fire mitigation and evacuation plan that offers support ensuring the safety of our community and adjacent communities on Blue Mountain.
Homeowners are encouraged to establish a brush pile within 5 feet of the roadside for easy access. Please do not collect anything larger than 8 inches in diameter and 12 feet in length. Getting an early start and continuously collecting brush year round is considered good practice.
If you have any additional questions regarding Wood-Chipping please submit them in the contact Link Below.
