The Dogs of Glenmore
3 November 2018

Dear GCA member,

Here is your latest newsletter from the GCA. As always, we welcome your feedback.

GCA Roadside Bollards
If you've noticed the green and white roadside bollards are missing from your property, here's why. The original purpose of the GCA bollards was to provide a temporary visual barrier for construction vehicles to prevent damage to established yards. Over time, residents requested them when reseeding. We now find that some posts have been in place for years and are damaged.

The posts were weathered and bent, so the GCA purchased new ones. The CARB decided to remove damaged and unsightly bollards and reassess the need. If a resident has a requirement, click here to contact the CARB and request new posts with justification. We will assess the need, and if required, place them for 90 days. At the end of 90 days they will be removed.
New Feature - The Dogs of Glenmore
Beginning today, each Newsletter will feature one of our Glenmore canine friends. If you would like to have your dog featured in the GCA Newsletter, please send a picture, name, breed, and something else we just need to know. We'll randomly select a picture for publication in each edition.

Click here to send an email with a photo attached. Includes the words "the best dog in Glenmore" in the subject line.

GCA Board Nominating Committee
Second notice ... the GCA Board is establishing the GCA Nominating Committee to identify candidates for next year's GCA Board. There are three vacancies this February. If you are interested in running for the Board, watch this space.

The Board recognizes that some residents are reluctant to run due to the time commitment. To reduce the time commitment, the Board has hired a professional Management Company (Associa) to assist us with running the Association, and we are expanding their duties so that the role of the Board evolves to oversight versus daily operations.
GCA Committee to Address the Traffic on 250
You've seen it, traffic on 250 is worsening, and it appears the County won't address the problem without prodding. Glenmore represents a large block of homes, but we need a voice. The GCA Board plans to charter a "250 traffic" committee to assess the current situation, develop a plan, engage the county, initiate a public campaign, and spur the county into positive action. Since this is a GCA chartered committee, reporting directly to a Board member, the committee Chair will speak for the GCA.

Wanted: Residents looking for a challenge Click here to email your interest. Add the words "I want to fix 250 traffic" in the subject line.
Safety Matters
Fall Leaf and Yard Debris Pick-up
We are planning two fall events ... a curb-side leaf pick-up, and a curbside limb, twig, and yard debris pick-up. Both events will be scheduled within the last ten days of November. We haven't set the dates yet, so watch this spot in future newsletters for notice once the dates are locked.
2019 Glenmore Security Improvements
The GCA Board approved funding for security improvements in 2019. We'll be adding remote security cameras to prevent illegal entry and damage to GCA property. We're requesting County Police patrols within Glenmore. Finally, we're upgrading the Gatehouse License Plate Recognition system as our current system will soon be unsupportable.
Help Wanted
Committee to Expand the Walking Paths
Its been years since the GCA looked at walking path planning in Glenmore. As we know, walking paths are a double-edged sword. Many residents want new paths, but don't want them on the front edge of their property. The GCA Board wants to establish a committee that can help assess the need for walking path expansion. Residents can click here to email their interest in the Walking Path Committee.

Dogs Must be Leashed in Glenmore
Dogs must be on a leash in Glenmore (except in the dog park). And please, clean up after your pet poops. Kids play on the sports field, and golfers play on the golf course. Please be considerate.
