Glenshire residents association hires general manager
Glenshire has appointed a new general manager, and he already has big plans for the Truckee subdivision.
After 14 years as the general manager for the Glenshire Devonshire Residents Association, Geoff Stephens took another position with the Northstar Property Owners Association this summer.
To replace him, the residents association board that oversees the 1,300-home subdivision hired Dan Warren, a long-time area resident and politically active participant in local agency meetings.
“The board was impressed with Dan’s existing level of involvement with the town, the utility district, and other public happenings,” said Vicki Connell, the association’s administrative assistant.
After sifting through more than 40 applications for the position, Connell said the group’s board picked Warren not only for his level of involvement, but for some of his ideas for the community.
“I see a lot of environmental things from power usage to landscaping that we can do,” Warren said of his environmental goals. He said he has already approached the association board on using wind and solar energy at the Glenshire clubhouse.
The association will also follow whatever green building standards the Truckee Town Council adopts, and will encourage subdivision residents to use environmentally friendly energy, construction techniques and landscaping, Warren said.
Another green project in the works is the potential use of a wind or solar power to clean up Glenshire Lake.
“We want to get rid of some of the weeds and get fish back in the pond,” Warren said.
As an avid bicycle rider and commuter, Warren said he has been, and will continue to be, very involved in the Truckee River Legacy Trail, which would create an alternative transportation route from Glenshire into town.
He said the association has also found that the original subdivision plans included a number of rights of way for trails throughout Glenshire.
“I hope to develop those and link them up with the Legacy Trail,” Warren said. “Glenshire will be one of the more desirable subdivisions to live in in the near-future.”
Not a resident of the Glenshire subdivision, Warren said he hopes to bring an outsider’s perspective and fresh eyes to the position. Warren lives in Ponderosa Palisades south of Truckee.
