Annual Meeting and Proxy
Posted December 7, 2019
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.
Annual board meeting – in addition to budget approval, election of new members, etc., those in attendance authorized the board to pursue a loan to fund the playground equipment replacement.
Securing loan, choosing contractor, and installation of new playground equipment.
Continued work with our attorney to get the bylaws and CCNRs updated.

Pursuit of a grant to purchase an AED for our pool.
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.
Playground Opening Saturday!
Posted June 28, 2019
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.
Kingsgate 5 Board of Trustees
Posted May 23, 2019
Greetings neighbors, summer is right around the corner. We are reaching out with a few timely updates and information regarding the pool and common areas.
Pool Hours – Due to staffing availability, the pool will open on weekdays at 4pm until June 23rd and at 12:15pm for the remainder of the summer. The pool will close at 4pm June 18th, 25th, July 11th, and July 18th to host the Gator Swim Meets. You are invited to come cheer on the team from the deck.
Pool Check-In Process – We have a new check in process this year. The first time you visit the pool, we ask that you have reviewed and acknowledge the updated pool rules (also available at the pool) as well as to verify your emergency contact information. This process will be for homeowners and resident occupants. You will still check in with your lot number each time you visit the pool.
Community Garage Sale – The K5 HOA is pleased to announce the Annual Community Garage Sale! Join us Saturday and Sunday June 1st and 2nd at 8 am. Signs will be put out on Main Roads and near the Pool. Please make individual signs as well to direct traffic to your part of the neighborhood. Advertising will be posted on Craigslist, Offer Up and Facebook beginning the week prior.
Seeking New Pool Manager – Due to the new pool manager’s unexpected relocation out of state, we are looking to hire and train a replacement as soon as possible. This is a paid part-time position; see the full job description for details. To apply, email resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seeking New Board Member – We have a vacancy on the board. If you are interested in joining the board or want to learn more, please email email@example.com.
Tennis Courts – We hope you have all been able to enjoy the new tennis courts and recently added pickle ball lines. In an effort to keep the courts for homeowner enjoyment only, there is a lock on the courts. The code is 2018. Please clean up after yourself and lock back up when you are done. Be sure to review the rules posted on the fence.
Playground – The playground renovation and replacement is moving forward. A loan has been secured. See the final rendering of the project for more info on what is being built. Construction has begun and will take approximately 4-5 weeks to complete. During this time, the playground will be closed. We will reach out when the project is closer to being finished to invite you to a grand opening towards the end of June. The rendering is available on our website and at the pool.
As always, please check the website, call the pool, or reach out to the board with any questions, comments or concerns. We hope to see you at the pool, park, and NEW playground soon.
