History

Glenmore was originally developed by Frank Kessler. The Board of Supervisors voted to approved the rezoning of 1195 acres of land from rural to planned residential on December 5, 2010. As part of the rezoning, Kessler was responsible for building the infrastructure for water and sewer.[2] Shortly after the rezoning, ownership was transferred to the Glenmore Associates Limited Partnership.

Missing funds

In June 2009, Mike Comer, the GCA's president and treasurer, disappeared among controversy surrounding a pending audit of the association's financial statements.[3][4]

In July 2009, results of an audit of the club's finances revealed it was missing more than $600,000. Comer has been arrested and charged with embezzlement in conjunction with the missing funds.[5] As of September 2009 Glenmore Associates, the community's developer, had repaid $300,000 of the missing funds and had reached an agreement to make the Association whole within a year.[6]
