Dear GCA member,

Here is your GCA newsletter. As always, we want to hear your feedback.

GCA Board of Directors
The GCA Annual Meeting - Tuesday 25 Feb 2020
The Glenmore Community Association's Annual Meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 25 at 7 PM in the ballroom of the Club at Glenmore. In January, GCA members will receive a meeting packet and instructions for voting.

We will elect  three  board members for two-year terms (see our three GCA Board Candidates below). We need a quorum (30% of homeowners) to seat new Board members. If we don't have a quorum (252 homeowner ballots either by mail or in person) we need to reschedule another meeting with two weeks written notice.

Three current Board Members (Deborah Conway, Art Peters, and Ray Murphy) are completing their two year terms in February. (Thanks Deborah, Art, and Ray).
Please mark the annual meeting on your calendar and plan to attend.

Theft from an Unlocked Car
During the night of Sunday, January 5th, a computer was stolen from the unlocked car of an overnight guest. The Albemarle County police were notified, as was the GCA Security Chair. The police visited the resident on Monday, January 6th, to investigate the situation. The thief has not yet been identified. 

Best advice ... remove valuables from cars and lock the doors.

Breezy Hill Rezoning Application Update
Tim Padalino, the lead Albemarle County reviewer for the Breezy Hill zoning map amendment application (ZMA201900004), notified the community that the application was revised and resubmitted by the developer on November 18, 2019 for staff review and comment. The county staff has conducted an inter-divisional, inter-agency review of the revised application materials and has provided the applicant with an updated review comment letter. This latest comment letter (dated 12/18/2019) and other application materials are available by clicking here .

As yet, a public hearing date has not been requested. The GCA Board will keep the community updated as further information becomes available.
No Trespassing Please
If you ride your bike or walk on Carroll Creek Road near Farringdon Road, and walk or ride around the Large Green Wall to get to Running Deer Drive, you are trespassing on two private properties. We placed four boulders on the gravel path to eliminate vehicular traffic, however, bikes and pedestrians are able to pass. Please respect our neighbors' property, and do not walk or ride around the Green Wall to Running Deer Drive. Want to see where the Large Green Wall is? Click here.
No Trespassing Sign
GCA Uniform Signs Regulation
A revised “Uniform Signs Regulation” was approved by the GCA Board of Directors in December. GCA sign regulations had not been updated for years, were confusing, and conflicting. This new regulation consolidates all signs regulations into the “Uniform Signs Regulation”. Click here .

Both the CARB and the Board discussed several options regarding use of signs. We know from the recent community survey and from information about home businesses in Glenmore Life that there are over 100 home businesses in Glenmore. Our priority is to maintain the rural and pastoral appearance throughout the community, and permitting signage at the expense of the pastoral appearance became daunting. As a result, we chose the minimalist approach.
           
You can read the regulation via the link . However, here’s a short summary:
1)   Only small empty lot identifier and small specified “Sold" signs are permitted
2)   Open House signs are permitted with CARB approval only on the day of the Open House and only on the property of the home.
3)   Signs required by Virginia law (Public Hearings, Pesticide applications, etc) are allowed.

You can contact the CARB with questions at carb@glenmore-community.org
