GlenEagles Community Association 2021 AGM – President’s Message

It has been over 3 years since our last Annual General Meeting (May 22, 2019). Last year we sent out a Power Point Presentation and Financial Statements in lieu of the 2019 and 2020 Annual General Meetings, followed by a recap of the feedback that the Board received. This year we are holding an in person 2021 AGM at the Links of GlenEagles on October 18, 2022.

The upcoming AGM provides us with an opportunity to review the activities that took place last year and to ask questions and discuss issues. It also is an opportunity to meet with Board members, all of whom have indicated that they are seeking re-election, and most of whom will be in attendance at the social gathering following the AGM.

Since the ToC eliminated the landscaping subsidy through 2016 and 2017, GECA maintains the boulevards at the entrances at Highway 1A, GlenEagles East and West, and The Landing. ToC maintains the islands and parks in GlenEagles East and West, albeit at levels far below those that were in place when Gleneagles serviced these areas. Based on resident feedback, the Landscaping Committee identified a number of projects to augment Town services. These included fixing up the signage and boulevard at the entrance to Highway 1A in 2020 and weeding and mulching shrub and tree beds on the islands in GlenEagles East and West in 2021. Irrigation remains an outstanding issue.


The reduction in landscaping responsibilities initially resulted in budget surpluses and an increase in total net assets (2019, 2020, and 2021 Financial Statements attached). More recently, some of the annual surpluses have been used to fund the special landscaping projects.

There have been three re-zoning applications to council in each of 2016, 2017, and 2018; all of which were unanimously rejected. A fourth application was filed in June 2020 but was put on hold. As a result, 2021 was largely a year of watching and waiting to see what if anything would happen. The fourth application was resurrected in 2022 for which Council again, unanimously, rejected the rezoning of the land. We are grateful to the Concerned Citizens of Gleneagles for so successfully representing our community’s interests over the past several years.


The Board is committed to keeping residents up to date about issues that may impact our community. In 2021, we set up a GECA Facebook Page which now has 250 followers. We also occasionally post on the GlenEagles Block Watch Facebook page. We started sending emails directly to those residents for whom we have email addresses on file and continue to respond to inquiries sent to [email protected] or [email protected].

Best Regards,

Margaret Blair, President
