Broadmead ‘For Sale’ Signs

Real estate agents should contact Mile Zero Sign Services at milezerosigns@gmail.com, or by telephone at 250-893-7661, for all new residential listings.

Homeowners should contact Mile Zero directly if using ‘For Sale by Owner’ signage.

Agents are asked to notify Mile Zero Sign Services within seven to ten days after the completed sale. Signs must be removed promptly, except for a brief “sale sticker” period during which prospective buyers and other agents can be advised of the sale.

All Broadmead properties have planning scheme and covenant restrictions which limit properties to single-family use only.  Secondary “suites” are not allowed. Please contact BARA at:  info@broadmead.ca for any questions regarding these covenants.



BARA is Broadmead’s local community organization. It is composed of homeowners who care about Broadmead’s neighbourhoods.  The following volunteer opportunities are available:

The Treasurer is a member of the BARA Board and is responsible for all banking transactions, preparing and presenting the year-end financial statements at the Annual General Meeting, and keeping the books of account necessary to comply with the B.C. Societies Act.

Managing Editor and Editor Needed for the BARA Bugle
The BARA Bugle is published twice a year (in April and November).  The managing editor sets the schedule, contacts the contributors, and ensures articles are sent to the editor on time.  The managing editor also picks up the newsletters after they are published.

The Bugle is in need of an editor.  The editor works in consultation with the managing editor and layout person, interviews and writes the “Interesting People Live Here” story, co-ordinates with the managing editor on dates for submissions, editing, sending the first draft for formatting, checking for other edits and submitting the final version for production (printing & mail out). The editorial position involves about 15-20 hours per issue twice a year.

Carriers to Deliver the BARA Bugle

Volunteers are needed to deliver the Bugle, the BARA newsletter.  There are short and long delivery routes available. The longest route is about a 40-minute walk through our beautiful neighbourhood.

If any of these positions interest you, please contact BARA for further information.         info@broadmead.ca
