Welcome to our sanctuary in the city

Located on Lake Fontaine in the heart of the Blue Grass region, the Lakeshore Village townhome community is unique among urban residential settings. Here you can commune with the natural habitat of Blue Heron, Osprey, even Eagles while boating, hiking or simply relaxing - all within ten minutes of the center of downtown Lexington.  Photos in the slideshow above provided by LSV resident photographers, Lewis Gardner, Douglas Wedding and Dr. Guoying Bing.

LSV HOA LAKE TESTING CONDUCTED 

In addition to the regular water testing conducted by LELA each year, the LSV HOA has added two independent e-coli testings this summer.  Samples were taken from the dock and boat launch areas.  We're happy to report the results for both tests (the second test results just came in) were significantly below established EPA limits.  Test results are available for homeowners to review in the office. 

NEW KAYAK LAUNCH DOCK IMPROVEMENTS COMING 

As part of the improvements in the boat launch area, the new dock will soon be getting the final addition of the kayak launch section.  This will make getting in and out of your kayaks and canoes much easier.  Happy boating! 

BOAT STORAGE  INFORMATION 

Please help keep the boat storage area organized and clean.  If you store your boat on the ground, make sure it is upside down and not holding water. Use long cables if necessary for locking to boat rack posts. If your unit number stickers have come off, please take a permanent marker and put your unit number next to your LSV sticker so we can identify ownership.  Please don't leave trash in the area (food and drink wrappers/containers, bait packages, old fishing line or hooks, etc.)  Thank you! 

LAKEFRONT PICNIC TABLE ON ORDER 

A new picnic table has been ordered to replace the one that had to be removed by the lake earlier this summer due to rotten wood.  Delivery timing is uncertain due to COVID but we're hoping to receive it within the next week or two.

DRAINAGE PROJECT UPDATE 

The board recently met with the engineers at EarthCycle Designs who are overseeing the LSV Water Quality Incentive Grant Drainage Project.  Plans are progressing for areas in Phases 1 & 2.  More detailed information will be provided next month.  You can find the Feasibility Study and Plan documents on the LSV website. 

AUTUMN GARDEN HARVEST NEWS 

The growing season is coming to an end but still lots going on in the garden.  Sadly, squash borers sabotaged the squash, but there are tomatoes, jalapenos, okra, swiss chard, kale, radishes, a few remaining pole beans, and green onions, plus basil, parsley, and oregano for the taking.  Enjoy this late season bounty.  Kudos to all the garden volunteers and donors! 

OFFICE PHONE LINE CUT BY METRONET 

We apologize for anyone who has tried to call the office yesterday or today.  Windstream is on site now and has determined the line was cut by MetroNet when burying a new service connection in the area this week.  Service is in the process of being restored.  You can still communicate with the office via email.  Homeowners living or walking by the lake in the clubhouse area will see a bright orange line temporarily installed above ground.  Windstream will bury it next week.  If you recently had MetroNet install service to your unit and their line is still above ground, please contact them again and request it be carefully buried to avoid damage by mowers and to prevent tripping.  Thank you. 

REQUESTS AND CONCERNS REPORTED TO THE OFFICE FROM YOUR NEIGHBORS 

Please don't park in areas that prevent deliveries or dumpster pick up.  Please tell contractors and all visitors to be mindful of NO PARKING areas.  Dumpsters are emptied each week on Tuesday and Friday.  Recyclables are picked up on Tuesday only.  Break down boxes and put in blue Rosies if possible.  Packing materials must be taken out of boxes and disposed of in the regular dumpster. 

Please don't leave pet food dishes out on open front porches 
Please don't leave bagged trash out on front porches for extended periods of time 
When parking in the large lots, please be mindful and park is such way that doesn't make it difficult for people backing out of carport spaces. 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding LSV, please contact the office so we can be of assistance.  Thank you and have a nice weekend.

 A MESSAGE FROM THE PROPERTY ADVISORY COMMITTEE (PAC) 

The PAC has noticed that quite a few units around the Village have doors and/or windows that do not comply with Village color standards. In order to maintain visual consistency in the Village, all windows and doors that are visible to the public, except for front doors, must be painted in the trim color of your unit or a dark bronze color, as mentioned in multiple LSV governing documents, specifically the Rules and Regulations of Lakeshore Village, page 44 and Operational Policy 03: WINDOW AND DOOR REPLACEMENT.   The PAC is in the process of contacting residents with doors and/or windows that do not meet community standards with instructions for correcting the situation. It is important that we all work together to maintain the cohesiveness of the village. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
