Sinkholes in our Area
Scroll to bottom of page to see sinkholes in the area.

To Lynnhaven Neighbors:

As I'm sure you are already aware, the chain of ponds in the Ashland and Bonnybrook neighborhoods have drained. This is due to two small sinkholes that have opened up as a result of the tremendous amount of rain that we've had recently. The District Property Management Director has informed me that two plugs are being installed so that any future rain will be retained. This cost will be paid for out of "project wide funds", which we provide for in our budget each year. These funds are part of each District's normal budget and are available to deal with situations just like this. All Districts share in the cost of such repairs, which minimize the burden on any individual district. Total cost is still being determined, but our share of it will be just over 19% of the total.

This WILL NOT have any impact on your District Maintenance Fees or any other fees that you pay, so don't worry. The budget for District #5 was approved at the last Supervisors meeting for years 2012 2013, and there will be no increase in your District Maintenance Fees this year. Contrary to what you may have been told or given at your mailbox or recreation centers, the Board of Supervisors for District #5 have not raised Maintenance Fees in six years and it is our intention to have a zero increase budget every single year.

If you have any questions, you can email me at:  Gary.Kadow@districtgov.org.

Sincerely,

 Gary Kadow
 Supervisor
 CDD #5
