KCA launches new Communications Committee

Kentlands is a dynamic and exciting neighborhood to live in. The walking paths, pocket parks, accessible lakes, new urbanist design, and of course the friendly people….all come together in a nice little package we call home.

Is it perfect? Almost! In the spirit of building community, the Kentlands Citizens Assembly approved a new Communications Committee for the purpose of pulling together the message and media resources we currently have to showcase our beautiful and evolving neighborhood.
