Establishment of the GH-CP Sanitary District was approved by the Westmoreland County Circuit Court on May 4, 2016. The order was premised on the core argument that the formation of the Sanitary District benefited all of the properties embraced within the bounds of the two subdivisions and assured maintenance of the unique assets of this waterfront and water access community. The principal benefits to each property owner are:
- (1) sustainable, predictable financial structure assuring stable, long-term operations;
- (2) enhanced fair market value of all properties;
- (3) full access to the community recreational facilities; and
- (4) voting privileges in the GHCP Association.
Following a July 16, 2016 public hearing, the Westmoreland County Board of Supervisors approved the proposed budget and Recreation User Fee for the GH-CP Sanitary District. The Recreation User Fee is included on the real estate tax bill for each lot in Glebe Harbor and Cabin Point. This fee is applied to all lots.
The GHCP Association manages and maintains the community recreational facilities and amenities under an agreement with the County’s Board of Supervisors who serve as the governing body of the GH-CP Sanitary District. These facilities include the clubhouse, swimming pool, tennis courts, picnic pavilion, playground, boat ramps, beaches, and waterways. There is no initiation fee or annual dues for use of the recreational facilities by property owners, members of their households, and guests as long as the Sanitary District is in place.
