Bremerton Cottages & Scottish Homes Neighborhoods
Two sections within Glenmore were designed by the developer as "cottage communities" - the Bremerton Cottages and the Scottish Homes. Both feature somewhat smaller lot sizes, common external grounds maintenance for all lots, and shared local common areas. In order to pay for these maintenance costs, separate homeowners' associations were formed for each, to which the local lot owners must belong, and pay dues, in addition to those required by the GCA.
The Bremerton Cottages Association (BCA) and the Scottish Homes Association (SHA) are separate legal entities from GCA, with their own Boards of Directors, Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, and Covenants and Restrictions. This allows them to act independently of the GCA, particularly with regard to lot maintenance. The common areas are also subject to GCA regulations, so these now share ownership of their common areas as 'tenants in common' with the GCA. A legal agreement between the GCA and each local association had been reached which defines the specific maintenance responsibilities of each, and the process for agreeing to changes of use and handling of disputes. In summary, the local grassy common areas will be maintained by the SHA and BCA respectively, with all other common areas being maintained by the GCA.
