In anticipation of a significant amount of snow being forecast for the weekend, the Kentlands Citizens Assembly, as well as the City of Gaithersburg is urging residents to make preparations now for the coming weather event.
The KCA's snow removal provider will begin bringing numerous pieces of equipment onto the property Thursday
evening. They will use the Clubhouse parking lot as a staging area, so please do not plan to use the parking lot as an alternative parking area. There will be multiple crews and they are prepared to work non-stop for the first 24 hours if necessary. Should the snowfall extend past that period, they will begin to rotate their personnel out for breaks.
The snow removal team is familiar with the Kentlands and there is a plan for the sequence of snow removal on the property. The contractor will knock down windrows to the entrances of garages to allow homeowners to access the mews. They cannot respond to individual requests, so we ask for everyone's patience as they will get to every mews and common area walkway, but not every area can be "first". Residents are responsible for clearing all sidewalks abutting their property.
It is the intent to keep the Clubhouse open this weekend, if possible. Friday
evening the Clubhouse is open until 8 pm
, 9 am - 5 pm
. Please call to confirm that the facilities are open before venturing out, 301-948-2071
Beth Brittingham, the General Manager of the Kentlands Citizens Assembly, will be in touch with staff and vendors over the weekend and will be monitoring her messages. If you need to leave one, call the Clubhouse number and ask for extension 106 or e-mail her at email@example.com
. For condominium issues contact your respective management company, that information can be found atwww.KentlandsUSA.com
