Greetings Fellow Kingsgate Five Homeowner,
This year has been a really different and strange time for all of us. Covid-19 limited our members’ enjoyment of the park and pool. The annual Easter Egg Hunt and Association BBQ had to be cancelled. We all hope to be able to resume these events next year. As always, important information regarding dates, news, and activities for the association can be found here on our website.
The 2021 annual meeting will be held via Zoom on Monday, January 25, 2021 from 7:00 – 9:00pm. Please refer to the mailed letter for the link, or email email@example.com and request an invitation.
The meeting will open at 6:30pm to allow time to register and assure a quorum prior to the 7pm meeting start. You can download Zoom at https://zoom.us Click the resource tab and select download. There is a free version that you can use.
Please observe the following rules for the meeting:
Important issues that will be voted on include approving the 2021 budget and voting for 3 board members for future years.
I would like to give a huge thank you to all members of our association for their ongoing support and feedback to the board. I also want to thank all the members of our homeowners’ board who support our whole community with many hours of service: Jeff Campeau - vice president; Ashley Gillen - treasurer; Susan Schilling - secretary; Sarah Starr - trustee at large and pool manager; Alan Nelson - compliance chair; James Weinrod - communications; Sarah Curde - recreation; and Bill Keating - park chair. I would particularly like to thank Dan Lund, our maintenance manager, and Sarah Starr, our pool manager, for their excellent service. Because of their hard work and commitment our pool was able to be open when most in the county and state were not. Also, thank you to Jonathan McPherson for the outstanding work keeping our website up to date with all the changes Covid-19 brought.
Highlights of this year
I look forward to seeing many of you at the annual meeting. If you are unable to attend the Zoom call, please submit a proxy ballot to appoint an individual to vote on your behalf.

Digital COVID-19 Edition, September 2020
What a past few months this has been. I hope that you are doing well during this time of unusualness. If you’re like me it has been an extraordinarily quiet summer. At our house we have been mostly staying at home with limited gathering except in the front yard with social distancing in place. My fondest wish is for all of this to settle down soon. We’ll see. One of the bright spots is that we have been able to open the pool. Not as flexible as most summers but we are an exception in being open. I know this because I (and Sarah also) have been contacted by pools as far away as Spokane asking how we were able to do it. Sarah has done an outstanding job understanding the rules and following them. Thanks to her and all of the guards who are doing such a great job.
My hope for all of us is that at this time next year we’ll be wrapping up a more normal summer. I really missed seeing people at the barbeque and egg hunt.
A reminder that the board is still meeting monthly via Zoom. In the interest of preventing non-members from crashing the meetings we are not posting the meeting info on the website. If you are interested in attending contact us for the meeting info.
President Kingsgate Five HOA and homeowner
First of all, thank you all for your patience and perseverance through all the challenges this year has thrown at us! As we head into fall, we wanted to reiterate the rules for using the public areas in our neighborhood.
The playground will remain closed until Phase 3 reopening occurs
Small group social gathering in the park is permitted as long as social distancing and mask use is observed.
The tennis and basketball courts are available for use. Please observe all the usage rules and regulations, and lock the gate behind you when you leave to keep them safe from vandalism. If you need the combination, feel free to contact us – just give us your name and lot number for verification.
Currently, the pool and courts are for resident use only. Normally, we would welcome homeowners to bring guests, but for now, we can only allow permanent residents of a household. Thank you for your understanding on this matter!
Please remember to use a mask in public. The current wisdom is that most transmission is airborne, so masks reduce the chances of catching COVID-19, and greatly reduce the risk of transmitting the virus if you have it! For more information on this issue visit: https://www.kirklandwa.gov/playitsafe
We are extending the pool season through September 12! Please see our Pool Page for updated pool hours.
A few reminders:
We are delighted to announce that we have been able to open the pool! However, due to COVID precautions, we are requiring reservations in advance to ensure safety. You can make a reservation here:
The Kingsgate 5 Annual Homeowner’s Barbecue was originally scheduled for Sunday, July 12. However, it has been postponed since it is unsure what gatherings will be permitted at that date, and because it is very difficult to eat a hamburger while wearing a mask.
We will make a decision at the board meeting in July concerning the Annual BBQ, and notify you via e-mail and this website whether we have successfully postponed it or had to cancel it entirely.
Dear Pool Patrons,
I hope this email finds you and your family, safe and healthy among this new and uncharted territory. We wanted to send a quick update about the pool and let you all know as much as we do.
Per state regulations, we will be able to open the pool at the start of Phase 3. This could start as early as the middle of June, or later.
Here is what that means:
Our goal is to continue our preparations, to ensure the pool opens as soon as possible (safely). Over the last few weeks, we have completed virtual video interviews with all of our guards, who look forward to returning.
New information, guidelines, or updated will be emailed/posted on Facebook.
Thank you all for understanding, again as things change, we will keep all of our HOA members and pool pass purchasers in mind. You all make the pool such a wonderful and fun place to hang out in the summer!
Hello Neighbors! We on the board hope you and your families are doing well and staying healthy. We appreciate all the cooperation in social distancing and know this is hard on all of us. With the cancellation of the Easter Egg Hunt, we wanted to find a safe, social distancing alternative.
Neighborhood Social Distance Scavenger Hunt!
Take the following list and see what you can find. If you find at least 10 items, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and submit the addresses you found them at or pictures that you took and win one prize per child that completes the hunt that will be dropped off with no contact :)
Have fun neighbors and feel free to add something fun to your yard or window to help with the fun for others!
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are holding the Kingsgate 5 HOA Board meetings via video conference until social distancing restrictions are lifted.
Board meetings are still open to homeowners who desire to attend, but for security and privacy reasons we cannot have a link here on our website. Please e-mail the Board (email@example.com) if you would like a private invitation to the video conference.
Park and Playground Closed
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to close the Kingsgate 5 park and playground areas until further notice. We don’t have the resources to sterilize these properly to ensure that they do not become transmission surfaces for the virus, and don’t want to encourage people to gather at the common areas in large groups.
Easter Egg Hunt Canceled
We’ve also canceled this year’s annual Easter Egg Hunt for similar reasons.
We hope to re-open soon when the worst of the virus is behind us. Stay safe and well!
Greetings Fellow Kingsgate Five Homeowner,
This has been another great year for Kingsgate V. Good weather led to many of our members enjoying the sun and water at the pool and NEW PLAYGROUND. The annual Easter Egg Hunt in April and Association BBQ at the pool in July were well attended. Thanks to all who helped organize and attended these fun events. As always, important information regarding dates, news, and activities for the association can be found here on our website.
The annual meeting will be held on Monday, January 27, 2020 from 7:00 – 9:00pm in the library at John Muir Elementary. Among the important issues that will be voted on include the 2020 budget and 4 board positons (3 terms expiring, 1 resignation) for future years.
Once again, let me give a huge thank you to all members of our association for their continued support and feedback to the board. The board really needs this to continue for everyone’s benefit. My last thank you is to all the members of our homeowner’s board who support our whole community with many hours of service: Ashley Gillen – treasurer, James Weinrod – member at large, Susan Schilling – secretary, Alan Nelson – vice president and compliance chair, Tracy Joshi – trustee at large and recreation, Sarah Starr – trustee at large and pool manager, Sarah Curde – compliance, and Bill Keating – park chair. Also thank you to our maintenance manager Dan Lund and Sarah Starr our pool manager for their excellent service. Sarah became our newest pool manager and board trustee when she replaced Lauren Johnson whose family moved to Idaho unexpectedly. I really appreciate how she hit the ground running. Lastly, a massive thank you to Jonathan McPherson for the outstanding work keeping our website up to date and looking wonderful.
I look forward to seeing many of you at the annual meeting. If you are unable to attend in person, please submit a proxy ballot to appoint an individual to vote on your behalf.
Our new playground will be open Saturday, June 29th at noon. Board members will be present Sunday, June 30th from 5-6pm to greet you, answer questions, and will supply a treat for all the children. We hope to see you there.
Please note the engineered wood carpet (i.e. wood chips) are fresh off the mill. They will take time to compact and weather. Please keep shoes on in the playground area.
