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.
Community Announcements
Recreational Court Enhancement Project
 
As part of our recreational court enhancement project, the KCA has contracted to replace the chain link fencing along the basketball, tennis, pickleball, and multi-use courts. The fence replacement work has been scheduled to commence on Thursday, December 8th (weather dependent). Work will be initiated starting with the basketball court, then Court #4, Court #3, and lastly Court #1.
 
Due to ongoing concerns with the play surface on Court #2 (three pickleball courts), this court will not be re-fenced until the play surface is replaced/repaired, which may be spring/summer 2023.
 
At this time, the contractor states that it may take up to two (2) weeks to complete each court (weather and delay-dependent). Frequent updates and communication regarding work schedules and court closures will be communicated via electronic means and/or posted notices on the courts. The contractor will have large heavy machinery and equipment and will minimize its disturbance to the extent possible. Please be cautious and mindful of the working areas and their surroundings while work is in progress.  
 
Your cooperation is required, please refrain from accessing a closed court during this process.
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please email clubhouse@kentlands.com or call (301) 948-2071.
 
Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
 
 
 
 
Trash Removal Services- Change in Service Provider
KCA reviewed the current trash removal contract with Trash Away, Inc., and as part of this review, the contract is due to expire on December 31, 2022. In accordance with the KCA’s procurement policy, we prepared a thorough request for proposal (RFP) and solicited multiple bids, including the renewal agreement from the incumbent service provider. During this process, we identified one or more
cost-saving options by moving away from the current vendor.
During a recent Board of Trustees meeting, the Board awarded the 2023 -2025 trash (clubhouse, single-family homes, townhomes, live/work buildings) and recycling (clubhouse & live/work buildings) service contract to Refuse Removal Results (Triple R). The scope of work, schedule, and level of service will remain the same. The change in service provider will commence on January 1, 2023.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email clubhouse@kentlands.com or call (301) 948-2071
