The kENTLANDS cITIZENS ASSEMBLY
The Kentlands Citizen's Assembly (The KCA) is essentially the management organization of the community. Think of it like a condo board or HOA, except this one is significantly larger given there are multiple condominiums and several different home owner 'districts' that comprise the Kentlands. The KCA is the primary governing body for the community and it has the broad and important responsibility of faithfully carrying out the provisions of the Kentlands Community Charter.
The Assembly is comprised of all Titleholders and Citizens of Kentlands, in other words all of the homeowners of the community. The primary purpose of the KCA is to maintain and operate certain common elements — like the Clubhouse, pools, tennis courts and our alleyways and mews — and to carry out the responsibilities established for the Assembly in set forth in the Community Charter, the Bylaws & Articles of Incorporation, and Declarations of Annexation (collectively known as the Founding Documents).
The KCA also publishes the cute neighborhood newspaper known as the Town Crier. Which is not to be confused with the Gaithersburg Town Courier which is another locally distributed and still PRINTED paper that is delivered to our mailboxes.
