The BOXWOOD Property Owners Association

History

The City of Lynchburg neighborhood called Boxwood, located on the north side of Wiggington Road about 1 mile west of U.S. 501, was developed by Boxwood Farm, L.P. on property conveyed to it by Marguerite Patteson in May 1996. The Boxwood Property Owners Association (BPOA) was incorporated on November 19, 1996. The initial directors of the BPOA, William Davis and James Burruss of Boxwood Farm, L.P., were instrumental in the design and development of the Boxwood neighborhood.

Boxwood has developed in two phases. It initially encompassed a common area (4.5 acres with a neighborhood pool) and about 80 lots on 4 streets: Marguerite Drive, Honey Tree Lane (so named because there was once a tree with honey bees in the vicinity), Wild Turkey Road (for the birds that once roamed the area), and Harvest Court. The first dozen or so homes built in Boxwood, all on Honey Tree Lane , were sold and occupied beginning in the spring of 1997. Building has continued nonstop since Boxwood opened, with homes at first filling in most of Wild Turkey, Marguerite, and Honey Tree.

The later construction of Lady Slipper Lane and Susannah Place added roughly 40 more lots to the neighborhood. Extending Marguerite Drive north for further development has been ruled out indefinitely because the topography of the land in that direction is unsuitable for building a road without also building a bridge that would be prohibitively costly.

In November 2000, Boxwood property owners elected their first Board of Directors from among property owners in Boxwood, and Misters Davis and Burruss passed responsibility for most BPOA operating decisions to the homeowners. At the March 2002 annual meeting, property owners voted to amend the BPOA by-laws so directors would serve 2-year staggered terms. In April 2003, Boxwood Farm, L.P. formally ceded the common areas and remaining responsibilities (primarily architectural review) to the BPOA.

The Board of Directors has engaged Brownstone Properties, Inc., owned and operated by Jennipher Lucado, to assist with the day-to-day operation of the BPOA. The registered agent of the BPOA is Kevin L. Cash of Edmunds & Williams (attorneys). It has been the general practice of the directors to meet monthly during the year, rotating among directors' homes. The BPOA holds an annual meeting in March each year for the election of directors and discussion of matters of interest to homeowners.

Features
The attractive entrance into Boxwood, along with the private pool and playground, add to the enjoyable atmosphere of the neighborhood. The pool opens in May and closes in September. The playground, while great for children, also has picnic tables, benches and an outdoor grill for the adults. An announcement board, located at the entrance of the common area, is available to all property owners.
Events
Below lists the voluntary homeowner events:
  • Easter Egg Hunt - This event usually held a weekend or two before Easter includes an egg hunt for children and some socializing time for parents.

  • Neighborhood Wide Yard Sale - usually held in the spring/summer and a great opportunity to band together to clean out our houses!

  • Ice Cream Social - This great social event is usually held in June, near the start of pool season. It is a great way to start off the summer.

  • End of Summer Luau! - This summer time neighborhood-wide annual party held in the pool area includes a series of games, food and fun for both children and adults.

  • Halloween Parade - This activity usually held on a weekend prior to Halloween includes a parade of the children in costume and some social visiting for parents.

  • Holiday Decorating Contest - The Boxwood POA annually invites residents to decorate their homes and compete for a $PRIZE$. Our goal is to showcase Boxwood as the best place to live in Lynchburg. Decorate for: Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, Eid Al-Adha, Kwanzaa.

  • Adopt-a-Street - Property owners have adopted a section of Wiggington Road to keep clean and clear of debris to help beautify our community. Clean-ups occur 4 times per year, usually in January, April, July and October.
