Man's Best Friend
Sitting Dog
Dog owners are reminded that according to Albemarle County regulations and our own Glenmore Covenants and Restrictions, when your dog is off of your property, they must be totally under your control which usually means a leash.  Prolonged barking of your dog is a signal that he/she is unhappy and a disturbance to all of your neighbors, especially now that spring has sprung and our windows are open.
Rivanna Village Outline
Rivanna Village Update
When asked for an update as to the current status of the Rivanna Village project, Mr. Andrew Boninti replied:

“I understand that there is some confusion in the Glenmore community as to when we will start construction. We had hoped to start in March, but this is the development business, which means nothing starts on time. We are finalizing our deal with a builder and crossing t's and dotting i's on our development loan. In addition, we decided to get a few additional bids on the site work, and those final numbers didn't come in until a few weeks ago. All normal course of business stuff for people in our industry. Please assure the community that the project is on sound financial footing, and before the Fall shovels will be in the ground."
