Pool Phased Opening

Posted May 6, 2020

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:

Phase 3

  • Limit 50 people (pool and deck combined) (typical average is less)
  • Most swim parties and lessons will resume at regular intervals (dates to come)
  • Standard fire code enforcement will apply

Phase 4

  • Business as usual

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.

Updates:

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!

Sincerely,

Sarah Starr

Social Distance Scavenger Hunt

Posted April 27, 2020

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 recreation@kingsgate5.com 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 :)

  1. How many parking spots are at the upper parking lot for the pool?
  2. Find a house with a rabbit in the window
  3. Find a personal lending library
  4. Find a house with metal flowers on their gate
  5. Find a house with a Snoopy figure near their front stairs
  6. Find a house with flower spinners in the yard
  7. Find the house that has a yard that is a certified wildlife habitat (this house is just outside our HOA boundaries, but worth checking out :) )
  8. House with basketball hoop
  9. House with a chair in the front yard
  10. Find a house with tulips in the front garden
  11. Find a house with the number 7 in the address
  12. Find a house with a flag on it

Have fun neighbors and feel free to add something fun to your yard or window to help with the fun for others!

Board Meetings Online

Posted April 12, 2020

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 (board@kingsgate5.com) if you would like a private invitation to the video conference.

COVID-19 Closures and Cancellations

Posted March 23, 2020

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!

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.

Highlights 2019

  • 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.
  • Movie nights in the park.
  • Hiring new pool manager.
  • 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

Greetings Neighbors,

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.

Excitedly!
