Did you forget something?  

Last year the GCA Board voted to bill for GCA dues in two installments – due March 1 and September 1. First, the good news – 100% of Glenmore property owners paid the first installment!!

Now, the bad news - payment of the second installment is running behind. Please check your mail basket or your email inbox and make that second payment now.
About those trash cans

Please remember that trash and recycling containers should be put on the street no than earlier 6 pm the night before pickup.  Please return them to their proper place, a screened area or garage, as soon as possible on the day of pick up.
UPDATE on Carroll Creek Bridge

Easements from Glenmore Country Club and the Glenmore Community Association have been signed, and Red Dirt Development has submitted the bond to the County for confirmation and approval for construction the Carroll Creek Replacement Bridge. 
The County has approved the plans for the bridge, however due to an extremely active construction industry, the box culvert has a 12-14 week delivery The new bridge should be completed by early spring 2017 assuming no significant weather delays.

During construction the nearby multi-use trail and the road itself will be closed during certain periods of the construction. As specific dates become known, we will let you know via special announcement.
