GCA Committees

In 2023 GCA Board culminated its two-year Path to Governance initiative and approved an historic reorganization of the GCA to meet the challenges of a growing, vibrant community. The Blueprint reconfigures ten GCA committees outlined in the 2020 Strategic Plan to seven. It allows ‘form to follow function’ and brings the organizational structure in alignment with the way the GCA works in concert with our management firm, Associa, to maintain and enhance our community.

Common Area Management (CAM)

Glenmore is a premier, gated country club community. It is the function of the CAM committee to effectively oversee the maintenance and improvements to all common areas, owned by the Glenmore Community Association (GCA), in a way to preserve and enhance the aesthetics of the community, provide and maintain such amenities within the common areas such as walking paths, multi-use trails, entry gardens, greenways, general use parks, the Equestrian Center Parcel, storm water infrastructure, roadways and other specific areas as need, and to comply with all necessary state and county regulations in doing the same. The CAM committee is also the steward of the Common Area Master Plan for all Glenmore
common area assets.

Common Area Review Board (CARB)

As provided for in our Covenants and Restrictions, the CARB has the responsibility for approving any alteration, building, or landscaping on common areas within Glenmore. In practice this is extended to oversee the maintenance of such areas, and to recommend improvements to maintain or improve aesthetic appearance.  CARB is responsible for the maintenance of walking/riding trails, entrance aesthetics, playground and sports field.


Certain high-visibility areas, such as the gatehouse area, grassy road medians, and roadsides on Glenmore Way, Piper Way and Paddington Circle, receive weekly mowing and trimming service during the growing seasons. The trees in these areas also receive regular care. The roadside grass in front of all vacant lots is mowed on a monthly basis. The other common areas, such as those beside and behind most of our home sites, are maintained as “natural areas”. The intent is to maximize their use as wildlife habitat, watershed, air purifier and natural forest beauty. Trees in these areas are rarely taken down or removed.
