Facts and Fears
Annexation of 60 Acres on Kenmure’s Southern Border
1) Annexation will preserve property values for all Kenmure residents by eliminating the risk of incompatible development on a large parcel on our southern border. This is critical for nearby homes and may have a ripple effect on all Kenmure property values.
2) Annexation ensures that all estate single-family or cottage homes will be built in accordance with Kenmure’s covenants and restrictions and subject to KPOA Bylaws and Rules.
3) Annexation will contribute to the financial viability of Kenmure Country Club. Over the next 10-12 years there may eventually be up to 39 new property owners who, on average, will be younger than current owners and more likely to become members. The value of everyone’s property is enhanced by proximity to a thriving club, beautiful antebellum clubhouse and tastefully landscaped golf course.
4) The new Mt. Olivet gate will provide a considerably shorter route for vehicles from Green River Fire & Rescue to reach dozens of Kenmure homes. Minutes save lives in an emergency.
After weighing all factors,
the KPOA Board unanimously recommends all property owners vote YES.
VOTING WILL TAKE PLACE SEPT 3-23 – by mail-in paper ballot OR electronically.

1) Some residents near the annexation believe that there will be considerable noise generated, especially during road and infrastructure construction. Response: Likely beginning in 2021 and continuing for about a year, Chatsworth Court residents will hear some noise, just as their Pinnacle Peak Lane neighbors did years ago when Chatsworth Court was developed.

2) Some residents believe construction traffic will disrupt our entire community.
Response: Kenmure Security will not allow new Phase VII construction vehicles to use the Kenmure Gatehouse entrance. The vehicles will be required to use a new entrance from Olivet Road built by KEI. An electronic gate will be installed so the new road will eventually function as a needed emergency gate. (Fact #4, above.) There will be a locked gate at Chatsworth Court during road and infrastructure construction.
3) Some homeowners believe residential traffic will increase dramatically.
Response: There will be gradually increasing traffic on Chatsworth Court as new homes are occupied. But analysis of electronic monitoring data indicates the traffic increase will be minimal. Even if every new lot was built upon during the next decade there will 34% fewer homes than in Brookwood Village whose residents confirm that they experience very few traffic delays, even in summer.
4) Some residents fear the annexation will increase KPOA assessments.
Response: KPOA Assessments will not increase. To ensure this outcome, KEI has agreed to contribute to a $30,000 reserve fund and provide a steady income stream (15x the annual lot assessment). The cost to current Kenmure property owners for this annexation will be ZERO. And KEI will pay all costs associated with this vote.
