Election of GCA Officers and Directors
As announced at the GCA Annual Meeting on February 23, three members were elected to the Board of Directors to replace the three members who retired from the board. Additionally, a new slate of officers and director duties were determined at the March 2 Board working meeting, as well as selecting Becky Lindway to fill the remaining term of Jim Colbaugh.
As a result, Bill Dunne will serve as President; Art Peters will serve as Vice President and leader of Common Area Review Board; Kevin Fitzpatrick will serve as Treasurer; Becky Lindway will serve as Secretary and Chair of the Communications Committee; Chuck Axten will serve as the Water Resources Leader, on the Architectural Review Board (ARB) and Chair the Architectural Review Committee (ARC); Bob Smith will lead the Roads Committee and serve on both the ARB and ARC; and Ron Baellow will serve as leader of the Security Committee and the Compliance Committee.  More information about the various committees can be found on the GCA website: http://www.glenmore-community.org/committees
Piper Way Traffic Calming
The Glenmore Traffic Study performed in 2016 identified a road speed issue on Piper Way between the gatehouse and the first Paddington intersection. The approach to paint the road with more narrow lanes to slow traffic has been proved effective elsewhere, and was proposed.
Speeding Car
However, in consideration of the views expressed by the membership at the GCA annual meeting, as well as other communications and information, the Board at the working meeting decided to hold in abeyance the striping of the traffic calming lanes on Piper Way. The Board will explore other options to address speeding on Piper Way. Thanks to everyone for your input.
Carroll Creek Bridge Closure
Just a reminder that the bridge across Carroll Creek will close this week for four to six weeks so that construction can be completed on the new bridge and the connecting road way.  Please use other routes for your travels.
