What are my dues used for?
When you purchased your home you agreed to become a member of the Association requiring the payment of annual dues. This Annual Fee covers your share of the Association’s taxes, insurance, utilities and maintenance of landscaped common areas and playgrounds, swimming pool and tennis courts, etc.
While some residents use these amenities more than others, all home owners benefit individually from the value these facilities and services add collectively to their properties. Many long-term residents alter their use of amenities over time. For example, families with young children are frequent pool and playground users, but perhaps not often again until guests, grown children and grandchildren visit.

Who administers the Homeowners Association?
A Board of Directors, comprised of residents who volunteer their services without compensation and are duly elected at the May Annual Memberhip Meeting of the Glen Meadows Park Association. The names and positions of current board members are on the Board of Directors page of this website.
What does the GMPA do?
The Association owns, operates and maintains the swimming pool, tennis courts and common areas, bike paths and playground equipment. Association property owners are responsible for their own lawns and homes, in keeping with the rules of the Association and the Codes of the City of Cohoes. As a Cohoes neighborhood, the City maintains the streets, conducts weekly trash pickup and recycling; and enforces traffic laws and civil order.
Who do we call if a streetlight is burned out?
Our electric and gas utility company, National Grid, maintains the streetlights on poles in the neighborhood.
How do I obtain Association approval should I want to change the appearance of my home, replace, or add new construction like siding, fences, sheds, etc.?
Association members are very proud of the Glen Meadows “look” as reflected in our official name: Glen Meadow Park Association. The Board of Directors has given the responsibility for maintaining the development’s character to the GMPA Architectural Committee. While the Restrictive Covenants in the homeowner’s property deed cover what is and is not allowed in the development, requests for homeowner changes are required and considered for review by the Committee. Homeowners may make submissions by emailing or calling Tom Lawrenson.
