The GCA Board of Directors occasionally updates Regulations and Guidelines to better serve the community.  The Board plans to adopt the following CARB Guideline revision at the December board meeting and make it effective January 1, 2016.
Section III – Signs and Mailboxes; B. Mailboxes

Mailboxes, posts, and arms are customarily provided by the developer at the completion of home construction.  They then become the property of the homeowner.  The design, exact color, and style of posts, arms, and mailboxes must remain the same as when they were installed. Should homeowners need repairs or replacement, see "Frequently Asked Questions" on the Glenmore Community Association (GCA) website.There, homeowners maintaining the items themselves will find the criteria for mailbox/post paint color and other specifications as well as the name(s) of local contractor(s) who will provide repair/replacement services.   

Mailboxes are also addressed by GCA Covenants & Restrictions, Article VIII (Architectural Control and General Property Covenants), Section 6 (Mailboxes).
Parking Regulations Adopted
The GCA Board of Directors, at its board meeting on November 18, 2015, and following a previous announcement in the October GCA Newsletter, approved the following updated parking regulations effective January 1, 2016:  
Addition to: Regulations for Use of Glenmore Roads and Paths

7.  No motor vehicle shall be parked on Glenmore common area except where specifically designated.

8.  No motor vehicle shall be parked on any Glenmore road in a manner that creates an unsafe situation.

9.  No overnight parking of a motor vehicle is allowed on any Glenmore road.

10.  The GCA Board of Directors reserves the right, at its discretion, to tow away at the owner’s expense, motor vehicles parked on the Glenmore roads in violation of these Regulations.
Trash Can Reminder
Residents are reminded that trash and recycling containers should not be put out at the street prior to 6 pm the night before pickup.  When removed, they should be stored in a screened area or garage to conceal them from view from the road and adjacent properties. Thank you.
