Notices ,  Reminders & Updates:
An ounce of prevention…
During this busy holiday season, please take time to secure your cars and their contents. Electronics and holiday shopping are attractive targets.
  • Remind guests and family members to lock un-garaged vehicles.
  • Better yet, remove valuables from your cars to the security of your home.
  • To deter mischief, keep your outdoor lights illuminated when cars are parked overnight.

Please report any vandalism or theft issues to 911 and keep Security in the loop by calling (434) 977-7019 and letting them know you’ve had a problem.

Leaf Pickup - Ongoing
Leaf pick continues throughout the community. Two crews are at work and will meet in the middle. Bremerton Cottages is done. The Scottish Homes is nearing completion. Work continues on Darby West and the crew will work its was down Piper Way. Sections S, Q & Q2 - Carroll Creek to Piper are complete. The second crew is working its way up Piper. We expect to finish leaf collection by the end of the week.

Sound Curtains at Glenmore Water Resource Recovery Facility
FYI! Earlier this fall sound curtains were installed to reduce the sound coming from the aerators at the (newly-named) Glenmore WRRF, reducing the noise pollution to residents and sports field patrons.

Draft minutes - November 2016 GCA Board Meeting now available here.
Traffic Calming measures

The plan to install speed cushions on Darby Rd East has been reviewed and formally approved by the County, following consultations with the County Engineer, Frank Pohl, and Director of Community Development, Mark Graham, including a site visit.
Orders have been placed for the cushions, painting and signage, and installation is expected within the next couple of weeks. Two additional stop signs for the junction of Ferndown Rd and Darby Rd have also been ordered.

Painting of road lines to narrow the roadway and create a bike/cart path on Piper Way between the gatehouse and the undivided section of Piper Way, as well as refreshing/painting/signing of cross walks, stop bars, etc., will proceed as weather allows.

Mahalo to Nancy Gansneder...
