Irrigation Update

GleneaglesLogoAttention Gleneagles Neighbors
Work will soon begin on the installation of our irrigation system along the median of Polo Club Blvd. Kentucky 811 will be coming to flag/mark underground lines in the median and along the edge of Polo Club Blvd. Please do not remove any flags that are placed. It is a felony to remove these markings as inadvertent damage to underground utilities could be caused if their location is unknown.

Please continue to check our website and Facebook for progress updates or for more information about the process

About Gleneagles

GleneaglesFrontSignGleneagles is located on the east side of Lexington, Kentucky in a rapidly growing part of the city. Interstate 75 and the Hamburg shopping area are close by, giving our residents quick access to many conveniences.

Gleneagles is a deed restricted community, meaning that we have covenants, codes and restrictions that must be followed. Our residents pay annual assessments which are used to grow and maintain our neighborhood.

Gleneagles is also know for its Greenway space. The Greenways are corridors of protected open space managed for conservation and recreation purposes. Greenways often follow natural land or water features and link nature reserves, parks, and cultural features with each other and with populated areas. Some of our Greenways have been designed with walking trails. We currently have two Greenways with trails. Each are located on Polo Club Blvd and are indicated with signs. One is near Shaker Run and the other is near the end of Gleneagles near Birkdale Dr and Royal Troon. The Royal Troon walking trail connects to the Brighton East Rail Trail. Rail Trails are trails made from abandoned railroad corridors. For more information on Greenway spaces or Rail Trails, please visit www.kyrailtrail.org.

Our board of directors is made up of residents that are elected at each annual meeting. The board meets monthly to discuss issues and make decisions about our neighborhood, including how best to spend our assessments. Gleneagles residents are encouraged to attend both the annual meeting and the public forum of each monthly board meeting. For more information about the board and meetings, visit the Contact and Events sections of our site.

In addition to the information you can find here, Gleneagles also has a Facebook page with up-to-date information for all neighbors! Just click on the logo at the top right of the page

My apologies for the long post.

Hello neighbors. My name is Aaron Seamans and I am your current association president. This is my second time serving on the board and my 4th year as your president. On behalf of the board of directors of our Owners’ Association I wanted to give you an update on what is going on in the neighborhood and introduce some things that we want to start a dialog on.

It has been a very productive year. We have started a much-needed irrigation project for the medians. This was a long time coming and we finally got all the pieces in the right place. We got the go ahead last month to start the project. Because the Owners' Association does not own the medians we had to get agreements from the city. It will take some time but having the irrigation in place will help to make the medians more presentable as you come down Polo Club Blvd, which is our long-term maintenance plan for the medians. Everything should be in place by spring. So please excuse our mess while we try to make things better.

We also plan to apply for another NAM grant to help us create a better community for us all and hopefully increase our home values. More information on that as it comes available. In addition, we are trying to find a way to increase communication within our community both on social media and for those that are not on social media. It is a challenge but something we are working on.

The most important item before the board, at this time, is the association’s budget. As a board it is our fiduciary responsibility to act in the best interest of the community. Accordingly, the board believes that an increase in association dues will be needed as of the beginning of our next fiscal year, July 1, 2018. As a non-profit entity we strive to ensure our expenditures and income are as close to equal as possible. As we have not had an increase in association dues since inception while costs continue to rise, this has become a struggle at best. In previous years, we have been able to offset some costs with the monies brought in by late fees on owner assessments. However, with recent focus on bringing all owners up to date on dues, late fees have, fortunately, greatly decreased. Even if this were not the case, including late fees to cover association expenditures is not a sustainable, nor desired, process.

We are still working the numbers and trying to determine what exactly that will look like and how much it will be. We are carefully reviewing both expenditures and income to determine what is best for our association. If there is enough interest, we will have a special meeting to discuss further. The budget that will be presented at the annual meeting will include the dues increase. The board agreed that we wanted to get the conversation going now so we may be able to answer any questions that you have and any insight that you can add that we may have overlooked. I am working on a presentation that will be posted online in the coming months that should answer a lot of questions. If you have a question, please ask here and tag me or send me a note. You are probably not the only one that has that question and I may even add your question to the presentation. We will also send out a letter to all members once we know the exact amounts.

The board is always looking for ideas from you on how we can better serve the neighborhood. Please contact us if you have an idea or want to help. We do have an annual meeting coming up in May with elections for the board. There will be 2 seats up for election. The terms are 3 years and I will say time flies. If you are interested, please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions or want to join the board. It really doesn’t take a lot of time and we try to take care of a lot of business via email and social media. Our monthly meetings run about an hour long, maybe longer if we get to socializing with each other.

I hope to see everyone at the annual meeting on May 8th (tentative).

It is a pleasure to serve you on the board and I look forward to your questions.

Yours in service,
Aaron Seamans
