Welcome to Kentlands!
 
Kentlands is one of the first and among the most successful communities developed using design and planning techniques known as "neo-traditional" and generally falls under the rubric of New Urbanism. New Urbanism is the concept of building from scratch a walkable, mixed-use city neighborhood or new town that provides an attractive alternative to the spread-out, auto-centric, subdivisions common to post-World War II suburban America. 
 
Kentlands is divided into several districts, including "Old Farm", built around the historic mansion and the Kentlands Village Square; "Gatehouse", named after the farm's entry gatehouse, which has been reconstructed; the "Hill Districts;" the "Lakes Districts;" "Kentlands Bluff;" "Midtown/Main Street;" "Market Square;" and "Kentlands Square." The winding street layout is based on a grid pattern, varied as necessary by the requirements of Kentlands' topography. Multiple open green spaces and pocket parks have been developed where land was available between the districts or in odd spaces near buildings and dwellings.

During the September 7, 2022, Kentlands Historical Trust (KHT) meeting, the committee members unanimously voted to reinstate the Visual Change Application's Signature Page. This has not been required for some time due to social distancing and Covid-19 restrictions.
Going forward, the Signature Page will be required, with Visual Change Applications submitted by October 19th in preparation for the November 2nd KHT meeting. A minimum of two (2) and a maximum of four (4) titleholders' signatures that have a view of your proposed change(s) to your property are required. The purpose of these signatures is for acknowledgment, not approval or consent.
 
Upcoming Reinspection for Townhomes
Periodic exterior inspections of the homes in our community are important for ensuring all titleholders are adhering to the maintenance standards. These standards contribute to enhancing curb appeal and property values.
Community Management Corporation (CMC) will be conducting the reinspection according to established criteria beginning the week of October 10th (weather permitting). If you were previously cited, your home will be reinspected.
