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, Lou Leslie, Douglas Wedding and Dr. Guoying Bing.


LSV News to Use

The LSV HOA Annual Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 24th at 7:30pm.  More information from the Board and Nominating Committee will be sent as the date approaches.  You can find Annual Meeting details in the CCRs posted on the website. 

New Clubhouse Rental Policy 

The Clubhouse is now available for homeowner rentals with reduced total capacity and cleaning guidelines based on current COVID information.  The rental application/ contract is posted on, and downloadable for printing, from the website.  Please note the forms must be completed and signed and submitted with two checks - one for the deposit and one for the rental fee. Also, Clubhouse rental does not include use of the pool. Contact the office with questions. 

Pool Closed 7-21 & 22 For Maintenance 

Pool deck maintenance is scheduled this week - weather permitting - for Wed. and Thursday.  Additional pool chairs will be placed on the concrete patio by the dock  for limited sunbathing based on available space..  Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this process. 

Garden Donations Appreciated 

Thank you to the homeowners who have generously donated their time and financial support to the community garden.  These generous donations make the garden the wonderful resource it is and make it available to everyone.  If you would like to provide financial support for the garden, please make your check out to LSV and put Garden in the memo.  Check the LSV Facebook page for regular posts on what is in season and ready for harvesting. 

Pool Inspection 

The LFUCG Health Department was on site last week for a required, unannounced pool inspection.  We are pleased to report LSV was issued an inspection grade of 100%.  No violations or problems noted. 

Trash, Recycling and Large Item Disposal 

This is a reminder that the dumpsters are emptied each week on Tuesday and Friday.  Recycle bins are emptied on Tuesday only.  Please close the dumpster doors after depositing your trash.  Please break down boxes for recycling and do not put recyclables in plastic bags. The designated large item disposal drop off location is at the dead end of Laketower on the east side of the property.  This is for large items ONLY.  Please - no loose debris or small items.  If you have contractors working on your home or visitors parking on the property, please make sure they know not to block driveways and areas where the city truck has to have access.  Please pull all the way into spaces, checking to make sure a garbage truck can navigate around you.  This will ensure all dumpsters are emptied on schedule.  Thank you for your attention to this. 

Property Advisory Committee 2021 Reminder 

If you are on the schedule for exterior repairs and painting this year, and have not submitted copies of your repairs and painting contracts to the office, this is a reminder to do so.  If you have any questions about the process, or need additional copies of your inspection letter and report or current LSV specs, please contact the office.  All work is due to be completed by the end of 2021.  Thank you. 

KU and LG&E Solar Share Program

Drainage Project - Phase I Update 

Engineered drawings incorporating edits from the Phase I homeowner onsite meeting were submitted to the city by Earthcycle Design in mid-June for final approval.  Approval from the city was received last Friday.  Requests for bids are being prepared and scheduled to be sent out within the next two weeks.  Contractors invited to bid will be given a deadline to submit proposals - typically two weeks for projects of this size.  Earthcycle Design (the civil engineering firm working for LSV to manage the project) will schedule a time with the board to present and open proposals received. They will also provide the board with a recommendation for selection. Upon approval, LSV will enter into a contract with the awarded contractor.  Updates on the status of the project will be provided to homeowners as soon as they become available.

Thank you.
