Landscaping Contractors Restrictions
Posted on May 30th, 2023 Comments (0)
Just a Friendly Reminder!
It’s springtime and the landscaping crews are out in full force. As we have noted in previous communications, the noise from gas-powered leaf blowers can be very disturbing to neighbors.  We want to remind homeowners about the contractor works hours as per the KCSA Rules & Regulations. Landscapers and other contractors must not work after 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. Work is not allowed on Sunday. 
Thank you for your cooperation!

Community Dialogue Sessions Spark Valuable Feedback from Kingsmill Residents
The KCSA Board of Directors and staff have completed 19 community dialogue meetings with Kingsmill residents that included approximately 220 attendees. These meetings were held to obtain community feedback about future Kingsmill development and new recreation and open greenspace amenities.

Due to the high level of interest among homeowners, we are providing a recap of what was discussed.
Deer Fencing Policy

Request for Community Comments on Need for a Deer Fencing Policy
May 2023
The Kingsmill community has seen an increase in the deer population, which has become a cause for concern. Each adult deer consumes between 5 to 8 pounds of food per day, and they primarily feed on the forested areas and landscaping around our homes. This has caused significant damage to residents' yards, as many have experienced.
While the KMPD and volunteer hunters do their best to cull the deer population during state-permitted periods, it's challenging to do so in populated areas without jeopardizing the safety of our residents. Our priority is to ensure the safety of our community, and current approaches are limited in terms of reducing the deer population. There is no safe and affordable way to reduce the deer population in greater numbers than our present approaches.
As a result, KCSA Board of Directors has requested EPB consider a policy that allows limited and temporary applications of deer fencing to protect young trees, shrubbery, and other landscaping in homeowners’ yards. This policy will help mitigate the damage caused by deer and provide homeowners with a practical solution to protect their property.
EPB is asking for community comments on the need for a deer policy and tentative policy concepts below. This list represents possible factors that will be taken into consideration in drafting a new policy. 
NOTE: This is not the policy, just possible ideas and concepts.
  • Deer fencing means materials placed closely around newly planted shrubs, trees, or other landscaping to prevent deer from eating the vegetation.
  • All deer fencing applications must be approved by EPB prior to installation.
  • Deer fencing installations will be limited in front yards near the street and allowed more in side and back yards.
  • Fencing must be temporary—approved for two years (homeowners can reapply to EPB for an extension if needed).
  • Fencing and support poles must be a dark green, black, or other approved color.
  • Fence height must not exceed 5 feet.
  • Fence material must be netting or vinyl-coated metal wire with 2 x 3 inch square mesh design, supported by steel or wooden poles inserted into the ground.
  • Total number of trees/shrubs fenced must be kept to a minimum.
  • Wrapping the trunks of newly planted trees with suitable temporary material to protect from deer rutting is allowed and does not need to be approved by EPB.

Updated Contractor Information
Posted on Apr 14th, 2023 Comments (0)
Effective May 1, 2023, contractors must enter at the Route 60 Gate.
In an effort to alleviate some of the backup and congestion at the Route 199 Gate, KCSA and KMPD have been moving contractors to the Route 60 Gate. In the fall of 2022, most of the large landscaping companies were moved, and in December 2022, all landscapers and package delivery companies were also moved. Re-routing these contractors has been successful thus far, so the plan moving forward is to have all contractors use the Route 60 Gate.
KMPD has been notifying the contractors of this move since the middle of March 2023. In doing so, there has been some confusion on which contractors are being asked to make the move. Dog walkers, home health, food deliveries, realtors, ride share companies, and other smaller businesses not using commercial vehicles will be allowed through the Route 199 Gate. These types of business should be listed on your guest list with KCSA and KMPD. As with any guest, Kingsmill residents may “sponsor” a guest in obtaining a barcode. There is an annual fee of $25 for a resident-sponsored barcode, and it requires the resident’s signature on the application. Applications can be obtained in the KCSA Office during regular business hours.
Initially, this move to the Route 60 Gate may bring a longer wait time in the guest lane from what has been the norm. Contractor barcodes will allow the contractor to skip the wait by using the barcode lane. These barcodes will give access to contractors through the Route 60 Gate during contractor hours only. The barcodes will not be for use at the Route 199 Gate. Contractors must provide a copy of the current business license and the current vehicle registration, in addition to the annual $25 cost, in order to obtain the barcode. 
Please assist with this process by making sure that your guest list is up to date and includes smaller businesses that are used regularly. Some of these types of businesses are listed above. There will likely be some exceptions, and if there is a situation that is unique to you, please discuss it with Bruce Haring (KCSA) or Jim West (KMPD). Either individual can be reached by calling the KCSA Office at 757-645-3454.
